TWO CHARGED WITH FRAUD

W.S. Wood, alias C.S. Allen, and Alfred J Wharton, charged with conducting a fraudulent employment bureau, were arrested at the post office by Special Officers McKenna and McCarty yesterday evening. They are held for the United States authorities.
Three hundred letters from persons who had sought employment and who enclosed 25 cents in stamps, were found in Allen's room at No. 1515 Locust street.
The police allege that Wharton and Allen advertised that they could obtain employment for men as conductors and motormen on cars in St. Louis, and that they failed to fulfill their agreement after getting the money paid as fees.

LOOK OUT FOR HIM

The Lamar Leader says " A man named Lawrence was in Barton county last week selling library books to school boards, representing that he was an agent of the State Board of Education. The board has no such agent and this man is an impostor and a fraud. As soon as County Commissioner Brous learned of the man's presence here, letters were at once mailed to the clerk of every school board in the county.
The grafter is perhaps in other quarters at this writing."

STEINKE FAMILY'S NARROW ESCAPE

The home of Fred Steinke, a prosperous German farmer, a few miles south of Morrison, Gasconade county, was partially wrecked by dynamite, and the lives of Steinke and his family were probably saved through ignorance in the use of dynamite on the part of the person making the attempt.
Tracks were found near the house, evidently made by a large man, wearing a large-sized shoe, but there is no other clue as to the perpetrator.
Portions of unused fuse were found near the house, leaving no doubt as to it being a deliberate attempt to kill Steinke and his family.

ROBBED POOR BOXES IN CHURCHES

John Schmidt was arrested in St. Louis for robbing the poor box in a church.
He acquired considerable money by robbing the poor boxes in different churches. For two months the poor box in one church had been robbed of $40 monthly, and a detective was sent to watch the box.

He was concealed behind the altar for an hour when a man entered and took a seat near the box. As he passed the altar, he knelt and bowed, kissed his prayer book devoutly and walked with bended head toward the pew. He had not been kneeling long when the detective saw him reach behind and slip a steel rod into the box. After fumbling around with it he drew it out and then placed long tweezers into the box and began extracting coins. Arrest followed.
