Last Wednesday evening, as Mr. John Bodenhamer was returning from Austin to Harrisonville, at which town he resided, he was accosted by three men, who asked where he was going, if he was a Granger and other impertinent questions. One of them went behind his buggy and struck him on the head with a navy revolver. Mr. Bodenhamer seized the pistol but it was wrenched from his hand, and he received another blow which made him unconscious.

SHERIFF KILLED

Our community was shocked Sunday by the news that Bertie Brixie, of Marshfield, the popular sheriff of Webster county, who has many friends in this vicinity, had been shot and instantly killed by Ed Bartlett.
It seems that Bartlett was suspected of knowing something about the disappearance of a team of horses, and the sheriff went to Niangua to investigate. Reports are that Bartlett resented the interference and shot the sheriff. Bartlett was arrested by ex-sheriff Cobe Shields and taken to the Springfield jail for safekeeping.

COLUMBIA MURDERER TAKEN TO PENITENTIARY

Columbia, Mo., Mar 2.---Allen O'Rear, the convicted murderer of E.A. Chapman, was taken to Jefferson City to serve out his sentence of ten years.
Immediately after the trial the convict took an appeal and his bond was fixed at $1,000 which he was unable to give. It is supposed he only took an appeal in order to get bond for a short time so that he might arrange his business affairs.








Henry Baumhoeffer shot and killed his brother Fred in Boone county on December 19, 1911, because of a quarrel. He was sentenced to 35 years in the penitentiary.

MURDER AND SUICICE

Alton, Dec 29.-- An appalling murder and probable suicide took place in this city during this week, under the following circumstances;
John McClane, a Scotsman, formerly a wiper in the St. Louis, Alton & Chicago Railroad shop, had an altercation with his wife on Christmas day and threatened her life.
Since that day his house has been locked up, and he was at the coal branch near the city until this morning when he returned.
Foul play was suspected, his house broken open, and the dead body of his wife was found frozen hard, she having probably been murdered soon after the threats, and he also lay in an almost insensible condition, having a short time before taken a large amount of laudanum. He may possibly survive the dose, but he is in a very depressed condition.

ANOTHER SEDALIA OUTRAGE

Sedalia, Mo., Mar 22.-- Miss Ermine Alexander, the 17-year-old daughter of a leading dressmaker of this city, was awakened by a noise made by a burglar in her bedroom, between 1 and 2 o'clock yesterday morning.
The burglar, who was wearing a handkerchief mask, grabbed her arm and whispered " Hush."
Instead of remaining silent, the young lady screamed for help and grappled with the housebreaker. A terrible struggle followed, the girl being knocked down by a heavy blow from the thief's fist.
He sprang to a window and knocked the glass out, but egress was stopped by a wire screen. Miss Alexander caught his arm a second time to detain him, when the burglar stabbed her, cutting through her clothing and making a long gash from her neck downwards across her breast.

The burglar fled out of a rear door as assistance reached Miss Alexander, who was lying unconscious on the floor and bathed in blood. Her wounds are not considered dangerous.

The Jasper News February 11, 1904

MAN ACCUSED OF TRYING TO ROB JASPER MAN

Several men, sadly under the influence of Joplin liquor, were put off of the 8 o'clock train Saturday evening.
One was a Jasper man and Conductor Laycox left word that it would be a good idea for the marshal to look after them as he thought the other fellows were trying to get away with the Jasper man's money.
Marshal King was notified and began a search of the crowd. He finally located one of the men at the Jasper Hotel, but he failed to locate the other strangers. The one was placed under arrest, but on being searched nothing was found but small change and a coal oil can with some whiskey in it.
He was taken to the lockup and kept until the midnight train came in, when he, coal oil can and all, were put on board and shipped back to Joplin.
It is said that the Jasper man had 13 or 14 dollars while on the train, but his false friends must have gotten away with it before he reached Jasper, because he had none when the marshal took him in charge.
