BANDITS ROB ICE COMPANY

St. Louis, June 7---While 1,100 members of the police force paraded before the National Organization of Police Chiefs today, bandits took advantage of the unprotected condition of the city and stole $3,000 from the safe of the Merchant's Ice & Coal Company. Three armed men held up two employees of the company and rifled the safe. They escaped in an automobile driven by a confederate.






The Night and Day Bank of St. Louis closed January 6, 1922, with a shortage of $754,000.
39 indictments were voted against A.O. Meininger, cashier of the closed bank, who left St. Louis when the examiners arrived and subsequently surrendered to the police.

THROWS RED PEPPER IN WOMAN'S EYES

An unidentified man, after vainly attempting to pour a liquid from a bottle down the throat of Mrs. Minnie Becker at No. 3633 Cook avenue last night, threw red pepper into her eyes and escaped.

Doctor Harry J. Cunningham of No. 1201 North Grand avenue, who was summoned, stated that, while Mrs. Becker's eyes will be sore for some time, she will not lose her sight.
Mrs. Becker is only 17 years old. She is separated from her husband, and is employed by Mrs. Sadie Stearns.

It was about 6:30 when the front doorbell rang and Mrs. Becker answered the door.

" A stranger was standing at the door when I opened it." said Mrs. Becker to the police. " He asked me if I would give him something to eat. I told him to go around to the kitchen door and food will be given to him."

" I was about to close the door when he stepped into the hallway and threw one arm around my neck, holding me tightly. At the same time he pulled a bottle from his pocket, and, holding it to my lips, attempted to make me swallow the contents, I struggled and shouted for help."

" I could hear footsteps behind me of some person coming to my assistance. The man also heard them. He then drew a box from his pocket and releasing his grasp on my throat threw its contents into my eyes."

" I did not see which way he went, as I was temporarily blinded. I heard him run down the stairs."

Mrs. Becker said she would know the man if she saw him again, but says she never saw him before. She told police she does not know where her husband is.

HE WOUNDED TWO MEN

James O'Toole, a laborer, living at No. 5224 Cheltenham avenue, is locked up at the Mounted District Police Station on a charge of wounding two men late Sunday night in Mrs. Catherine Michael's saloon at No. 5759 Manchester avenue.
O'Toole entered the saloon about 11 o'clock.

" I'll show you how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day " he exclaimed, as he produced a revolver and began firing at a table at which sat Mrs. Michaels, Lawrence Brady of No. 3133 Manchester avenue and Thomas Lagarste of No. 6300 Tamm avenue.
The first bullet passed between Mrs. Michaels and Lagarste and struck Brady in the left shoulder. The second struck Lagarste in the right forearm and the other shots went wild.
The shooting attracted the attention of the police, who placed O'Toole under arrest and forwarded Brady to the City Hospital. Dr. Murray attended Lagarste. Neither Brady nor Lagarste were seriously wounded.

PLEADS GUILTY IN A MISSOURI MURDER CASE

A plea of guilty to complicity in the murder of Elmer Davis at Laredo, the night of May 30 by Gilbert Glidewell, 24, of St. Joseph, brought a life sentence in the Missouri Penitentiary in Grundy County Circuit Court at Trenton late Tuesday. The sentence was pronounced by Judge A.G. Knight.

James E (Ted) Richardson, also of St. Joseph, charged with complicity in the crime, was tried before a jury at Trenton last week and sentenced to hang. Ellis Nave, 21, St. Joseph, the third man implicated, has been given a change of venue from the Grundy County Circuit Court. The case probably will be sent to Princeton for trial.

Glidewell also pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of robbery with firearms and was sentenced to a second term of life imprisonment. This plea of guilty was in connection with the holdup of a drug store the night of May 25, in which Richardson fired a shot at Frank E Lafferty, proprietor.
Glidewell will be taken to the penitentiary at Jefferson City.
