MISSOURI GIRL HAS HER FATHER ARRESTED

Mountain Grove, Mo., Jan 29.---After the father of Miss McIvers had pursued and shot Clarence Helton, with whom she was eloping, and killing his horse near here today, the daughter called a constable and had the angry father arrested.
After the shooting, McIvers rode away, believing that his daughter had fled. The girl, however, had stepped into a thicket, and as soon as her father had disappeared, helped Helton on to her horse and rode with him to the home of the country physician.
McIvers is held pending the outcome of Helton's wounds.

DARING ROBBERY IN BUTLER COUNTY

About 6 o'clock last Saturday evening three masked men entered the residence of T.H. Vandover, in Beaverdam township, and demanded the money that was on the premises. In order to force a quick compliance with their request they fired their pistols into the floor and made threats that were calculated to scare the old gentleman and members of his family.

Mr. Vandover, who was in very bad health at the time, brought out a thousand dollars in greenbacks and presented it to the robbers. They graciously received it and demanded more, suggesting that he bring out his wealth that was reported to be buried about the house. Mr. Vandover proceeded to dig some three thousand dollars in gold from the chimney corner, where it had laid and accumulated for many years.
After receiving this amount, the robbers mounted their horses and rode away.
There are no clues as to who the guilty parties were or how they knew about Vandover's hidden wealth.

The amount stolen represented the labor and savings of a lifetime as Mr. Vandover appears to have hoarded his money for an unexpressed purpose. He deprived himself of many comforts of life in order to accumulate such a sum that the robbers took. He was sick at the time and the excitement and loss of money had a serious effect on him. The latest reports were that he was prostrated beyond a reasonable hope of recovery.

Just as we go to press we learn that two of Mr. Vandover's nephews have been arrested on suspicion and there is a strong probability that Vandover will recover his money.




( If those two were in his will You can bet they were scratched off )

MESSENGER WAS A ROBBER

Kansas City, Mo., Jan 6---Constant grilling by the police and by the grim spectre of a guilty conscience brought a complete confession from L.H. Holland, express messenger, of the Missouri Pacific train No. 209 December 27 of which he was in charge. He admitted also that he shot himself in the leg to make the story more plausible.

Loot to the amount of $38,000 and several diamond rings and wrist watches were recovered in a large trunk checked at the Union station. Holland made admissions that caused his arrest late that night. He also admitted the theft of $400 worth of Liberty bonds August 25.
The strange story told by Holland of the December 27 holdup;

" Shortly after my train pulled out of Pleasant hill, I began to change my clothes. I had a revolver in the pocket of my overalls that had fallen out as I was changing. I picked it up and it accidentally discharged, striking me in the leg."

" At first I was frightened. I sat still and thought a long time. Then all of a sudden it came to me that it would be a good chance to stage a holdup. I laid my plans very carefully and selected a large trunk in which I placed as much loot as I thought I could get away with."

Holland was in charge of the baggage on the train. He checked the trunk at the Union station here. It was first billed to Excelsior Springs, Mo.

" My idea was to go to Excelsior Springs and dispose of the loot as soon as talk of the robbery blew over. A few days ago I changed my mind, went to Excelsior Springs and checked the trunk here. My conscience kept bothering me all the time and I thought I was being watched by the police."

Holland had $200 in his pockets when arrested. The trunk contained $27,227,43 in drafts, $1,139 in currency. None of the bills were larger than $10 in denomination. There was $800 in one dollar bills. Two diamond rings, and two wrist watches were in the trunk.

Holland's parents, Mr. and Mrs. L.W. Holland live in Pleasant Hill, Mo.

Following the alleged train holdup, Holland told a detailed story in which two bandits, after rifling the safe in the express car, shot him in the leg. The story was a detailed affair down to the shooting. It was there he erred. He told how he scuffled with one of the bandits for several minutes in the car, during which several shots were fired.

Holland was sentenced to 5 years in the penitentiary by Judge Latshaw Friday afternoon.
