STRUCK HER IN FACE AND TOOK HER PURSE

While Miss Katie Mikus of No. 2715 Blair avenue was walking north on the east side of Fourteenth street between Benton avenue and North Market street, at 5 pm yesterday, a young man, apparently about 16 years old, rushed from the alley, struck her in the mouth with his fist, snatched her pocketbook from her hand and ran north on Fourteenth street. He was joined by a companion after he had reached Benton street.
Miss Mikus was staggered but not knocked down by the blow. She was greatly excited when she reported the case to a police officer. She gave him a description of the pocketbook and said it contained $8.50, consisting of a $5 bill, three $1 bills and two quarters. She also gave a complete description of the robber.
Several hours later, Officer John Derby arrested a young man, who gave the name of August Werner. Miss Mikus positively identified him as the man who struck her in the face and snatched the pocketbook from her hand. None of the money was recovered.

HORSE THIEVES AT WORK

Joplin, Mo., Oct 10--Horse thieves have been committing depredations in this county within the past week. A fine horse and buggy were stolen from Patton Bros. here last night, while hitched at one of the most public places in the business center of the city.
Last Friday night horses and buggies were stolen from six different persons between Joplin and Duenweg, a suburban mining camp, while at another place a hack and seven sets of harness were stolen. The Anti-Horsethief Association expects to take the field with bloodhounds to hunt down these thieves unless the officials now on their trail succeed in capturing them. The horse thieves that have been operating in southwest Missouri are supposed to belong to an organized gang of Indian Territory outlaws.

His brother had quite a resume.

( Find a grave says he formed a gang with Billy the Kid, he was about 5 years old when Billy the Kid died. I think they mean the " Verdigris Kid " who was a member of the Cook Gang.)

IDENTIFIED HIS COAT

Harris Applebaum, proprietor of a second-hand store at No. 304 North Levee, was arrested last night at Ninth and Chestnut streets on complaint of F.H. Sweeney of No. 4041 Nebraska avenue, and an application will be made today for a warrant charging burglary and larceny.
Sweeney declared that Applebaum was wearing, at the time of his arrest, an overcoat which was owned by him and had been stolen several weeks previous from an Olive street tailoring establishment, where the garment had been sent for repairs. The overcoat was positively identified by Sweeney. Applebaum asserted that he had purchased it from a man unknown to him.

MAIL ROBBERY STAGED IN THE STATE CAPITAL

St. Louis, Mo., Mar 1---Three packages of bonds shipped from the Federal Reserve Bank here were in the loot stolen from George Williams, Jefferson City mail carrier, early today by five masked bandits. The bonds were valued at approximately $34,000. This comprised only a part of the loot and officials here estimated that the robbery may run to about $100,000.

Jefferson City, Mar 1--Five masked bandits held up and robbed George Williams, driver of a mail truck en route from the Missouri Pacific depot to the Jefferson City post office at 2 o'clock this morning. They took all the registered mail. The men then forced Williams into a car which they were driving and took him to near New Bloomfield where he was handcuffed to a tree and left until his cries brought rescue. There is no way to ascertain the value of the loot at present, but is thought it might be as high as $18,750.
The train carrying the mail that was stolen is the one that carries the mail containing the automobile license fees. The fees are about $7.50 each. The authorities usually receive about 5000 personal checks and drafts a day for the fees.
Williams is 60 years old and has been a substitute mail carrier for six months. He said the men accosted him at the intersection of Capital avenue and Stewart street where they pointed revolvers at him and ordered him to halt.
