DRIVER HELD UP ON WAGON

While returning home last night at 7 o'clock, Andrew Hemming of No. 1212 Old Manchester road, employed as a teamster by Joseph Hemming, was held up by two men and robbed of $14.75 on Shaw avenue near Old Manchester road.
Hemming claims that the two men climbed in his wagon from behind and while one of them held his hands over his eyes the other went through his pockets and took the money. After robbing him, the robbers cuffed and beat him. Hemming was collecting for his employer and the money taken was the result of his day's collecting.

RUNAWAY HORSE SAVED OTTO FREY FROM ROBBERS

Four highwaymen yesterday morning made a desperate attempt to hold up and rob Otto Frey at the corner of Loughborough and Field avenues, in Carondelet, as he was driving to his home, No. 3447 South Grand avenue, with $86 in his possession, which he had collected from farm tenants near Fenton, Mo. Frey, aided by his horse, which ran away when the robbers tried to stop it, succeeded in escaping with the money he had collected the day before.
In the scrimmage, Frey was slightly injured by a blow on the head from a bludgeon in the hands of one of the robbers. The highwaymen escaped and Mr. Frey was so elated at his escape that he decided not to make any effort to have them apprehended.
Frey was driving across Field avenue when two men sprang from the bushes at the side of the street and seized the reigns. The startled horse reared and dashed down the street, while the highwaymen clung to the shaft and the reigns, trying in vain to stop the animal.
At Sharp avenue two other men appeared, one seizing the reigns while the other, as the horse slowed up, attempted to climb into the buggy from one side. Frey again started the horse with a blow of the whip and the two men at the animal's head were thrown to the ground.
The man at the side of the buggy had managed to get his foot on the step and was attacking Frey with a weapon, when a fourth robber ran to the buggy and tried to climb in from behind. It was a desperate situation for Frey, but he kept his nerve and struck the man in the back of the buggy full in the face.
Stunned by the blow, the fellow released his grasp and fell to the ground, nearly turning a somersault. By this time the horse was in a mad gallop, and the last of the highwaymen had to hold on with both hands to escape falling under the wheels.
Frey saw the man's helpless condition and grappled with him. Clinging to each other the men rocked back and forth in the buggy as it bounded along until the driver finally shook off his assailant, leaving him far behind in the road.
On regaining control of the horse Frey drove to the City hospital to have his wounds dressed, as he did not want to frighten his wife by going home with his head covered with blood. After his injury had been dressed he drove home.
Frey said that he does not think he would be able to identify his assailants, as it was dark when they attacked him.

TRAMP ROBBED BENEFACTOR

William Hescott's hospitality to a tramp, whom he fed last evening, gave the latter an opportunity to rob the house. He took $3.50 and jewelry.
The tramp came to Hescott's home, No. 321 South Fourth street, and asked for something to eat. Hescott was moved by the fellow's woeful appearance and spread a lunch on the kitchen table. The tramp conversed with his benefactor until bedtime, when Hescott, wishing to show further generosity, offered to let the tramp sleep in the kitchen. Hescott went to his room on the second floor and fell asleep. Two hours later he went downstairs to get a drink and the tramp was gone.
An investigation showed that the valuables had also disappeared. The jewelry consisted of a pair of bracelets, two rings, a gold chain and a watch, which, with the money, were in the drawer of a dresser in Hescott's front room.

SON FINDS BODY OF MURDERED MOTHER

St. Louis, Oct 16--- Mrs. Kate Lauman, wife of William E Lauman, of Normandy, St. Louis county, was murdered and robbed by an unidentified person or persons Wednesday night while on her way home from a visit to St. Louis.
The murderer used a revolver, and the bullet penetrated the temple just above the left eye.
The crime was committed some time after 6:30 o'clock, but the exact time has not been determined, as the circumstances surrounding it are as mysterious as any with which the city police or county authorities have ever had to work.
The body was found Thursday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock by Roy Lauman, a son of the murdered woman, as he was driving home from a business trip to St. Louis.
It was lying on the east side of the Lucas and Hunt road in a clump of bushes. That there was a struggle before Mrs. Lauman died there is little doubt. Her chatelaine bag, in which she carried her money, had been forcibly torn from her belt. Clutched tightly in her right hand between her index and middle fingers was a small twig that she is supposed to have gotten in the brush on the side of the road while grappling with her assailant.
She wore a black silk glove, which was torn in a jagged manner in several places, which could have been caused by brush.
She had about $80 in money, which was taken. In addition, a gold watch valued at $90, and three rings valued at about $35 have disappeared.
