BURGLARS AT SEDALIA

Sedalia, Mo., Dec 18.--- Thieves made a $300 haul from E.E. Johnston's clothing store at an early hour this morning, but all of the goods were recovered after Officer W.H. Boultt had fired two shots at one of the fleeing burglars, who left behind an overcoat, hat, memorandum book and three brass transfer checks upon which was stamped the name of " Rolla Sears."
The memorandum book entries show one of the thieves was in Kansas City recently, and it is believed he belongs there. Information has been forwarded to Chief of Police Flahive, of the Kansas City force, that the belief is the gang will return there.

ARRESTED FOR MURDER

It will be remembered that early last spring considerable excitement was caused in the northwest corner of this county and southwest Putnam by the mysterious disappearance of a man named McMain.
Mention of the matter was made at the time by this paper.
Suspicion rested strongly on certain parties but no arrests were made. Afterward human bones were found under circumstances that pointed that they belonged to the missing man. On Monday, Sheriff Shaver arrested James May and he is now in jail.

SEDALIA WOMAN HELD UP

Sedalia, Mo., Dec 18.--- Miss Katie Ashwell was held up and an attempt made to rob and assault her at the front gate of her home in the southeastern part of the city at 6 o'clock this morning.
She was returning home from work when a man seized her and demanded her money.
She answered that she had none with her, but this did not satisfy the fiend, who dragged her more than a block, evidently with the intention of assaulting her.
The approach of a neighbor saved her. The entire police force of the city was summoned to the scene, but they have a poor description of the assailant and his capture is by no means certain. This is the fifth case of the kind that has occurred recently, and if the assailant is captured he will not get off lightly.

Mrs. John Frank of No. 816 North High street has, in the past 24 hours experienced the meaning of cumulative trouble.
Mrs. Frank conducts a grocery store. Early Sunday morning she received a telegram that her only sister had died at her home in Kentucky. She opened her store to transact business.
Her first business transaction was to hand over the contents of her cash drawer, amounting to $12 to two men, one of whom held a pistol to her head.
The men entered the store about 7 o'clock Sunday morning, and after asking the price of several articles, presented their revolvers and demanded her money.
While Mrs. Frank was being robbed, her daughter, who assists her, found a police officer on the corner of Morgan and High streets, but the thieves escaped before his arrival.

BUNGLING HIGHWAYMEN

On Monday evening at about dusk, three horsemen rode up to a spot near the crossing of the Missouri Pacific and Narrow Gauge railroads, between this city and Independence, where were camped out for the night a party of some half-dozen emigrants.

The cavaliers were disguised, and each man wore over his face a mask, totally concealing his features. As they approached the campers, they at once declared themselves to be the notorious James boys, presenting pistols and demanding money. The campers objected and both sides began firing at each other.

One emigrant was wounded in the thigh and hand. The other emigrants retreated to their camp, and the robbers seized the wounded man and stole $125 from his pockets and departed. The emigrants went to Independence where they made out a complaint.

The officers tracked down one of the thieves named Hall and arrested him. The other two are suspected of being a couple of well-known rascals named Ralston and Burns who live at Rock Creek, near where the robbery occurred.

HELD UP CLERKS

When terminal station clerk Ross Ott of this city and Albert Woellner, a mail clerk on Burlington train No. 23 bound from Kansas City to Omaha, stepped away from the train with six sacks of registered mail at 1 o'clock Friday morning, three unmasked bandits stepped up in front of them with drawn revolvers and ordered them to hold up their hands.
One man struck Ott in the stomach with his revolver and another struck Woellner over the head with his gun, dazing him. They then seized the six sacks and ran east through the railroad yards to an automobile parked on Eighth and Mitchell avenue and made their escape.
