Gerald Journal Oct. 30, 1964

Lonedell, Oct. 20.---Report received from Kenneth Middleton, principal, and Howard Bland, custodian, of the R14 school near Lonedell, advising of a break-in at the school.
Entry was gained by breaking two window panes in the front of the building. The door to the office was forced and a hole was knocked in the wall of the vault to gain access to the inside lock which enabled the thieves to open the vault door.
A very small amount of change was in the vault but was not disturbed. Nothing else was taken. This is being investigated by the sheriff's office.

MAN KILLS BROTHER-IN-LAW

Kansas City, Mo., Apr.1.---Harboring imaginary wrongs, John W McKimm, aged 29 years, this afternoon shot and killed Dr. B.F. Shaw, his brother-in-law, as the latter sat reading the Sunday school lesson to his 5-year-old daughter. Shaw died instantly. McKimm, who had been an inmate of a sanitarium and is believed to be insane, threatened to kill the other five members of the family, and was only restrained after a struggle.
Dr. Shaw is a widower. His mother-in-law, Mrs. McKimm, had cared for his child since his wife died, and as was his custom, he spent Sunday at the McKimm house at 1517 Forest avenue.
The family had eaten dinner. Shaw seated himself in a chair in the parlor, and with his child before him on the floor was reading the Sunday school lesson to her. McKimm, as it developed later, had gone directly to his room from the table and written a rambling statement in which he stated that he had not been treated rightly and that he intended wiping out the entire family, consisting of Dr. Shaw and his child, his mother, two brothers and a sister.
Then descending to the parlor he slipped up behind Shaw, and placing the revolver against the latter, fired. Dr. Shaw never moved and died before the family could reach his side. As the other members of the family came running to the scene, McKimm calmly raised his revolver to fire at the first that should enter the room.
Before he could fire a second time he was overpowered by his two brothers and taken to the station. There the murderer refused to talk and appeared unconcerned.
The Shaws and McKimms came to Missouri from Pennsylvania 15 years ago. Dr. Shaw married Miss McKimm at Lathrop, Mo. He graduated from the University Medical college in 1891 and was prominent in his profession.
McKimm has been considered of unsound mind for several years and was discharged from a local sanitarium two years ago as cured. Recently, however, he had acted queerly. The McKimms are well-to-do.

The Weekly Northwestern Miller March 27, 1899

St. Louis---A gang of safe-crackers in this territory appears to operate among the mills. Following the blowing of the safe of the J.B. Ross Mill in St. Louis, several weeks ago, was the attempt to loot the vault in the Columbia, Ill. Star Mill, last week. Masked men effected an entrance into the mill and drilled holes into the door of the safe. The explosion failed to wreck the inner door but alarmed a night watchman. He fired several shots at the burglars, but they escaped, though one of them was badly wounded.
