BOSTON POST-OFFICE ROBBED

T.W. Box was up from Boston Wednesday and informed us of a robbery which occurred in that town Monday night.
Thieves broke into the store of Nali & Box in which the post office is located. Entrance was gained by breaking out a window. Nothing in the store was disturbed but about $8 in cash and $12 or $15 in stamps were taken from the post office. The thieves were probably frightened away before they could take anything from the store. The robbery was not discovered until the next morning.

CHIEF OF MOONSHINERS ARRESTED

Springfield.---The breaking up of about the only remaining moonshine gang of the Ozarks has been accomplished, federal revenue officers believe,in the arrest of George Smith of Texas county, an old man, who is thought to be the leading spirit of a gang of illicit whisky makers who have evaded the law for the last decade.
With Smith, was arrested "Pete" Barton, an Ozark mountaineer, who, it is charged, acted as selling agent for the moonshine stills.
The still had been located many times by government detectives, but in every instance it was moved before arrests could be made. It was in a deep canyon on Big Creek, near Bee Rock, in one of the wildest sections of southwest Missouri.
Armed men guarded the still.

ACQUITTED BY JUDGE CLARK

Fred Towles, a negro, who was arrested on election day, charged with assaulting policeman Degnan in front of the polling place of the Eighth Precinct of the Sixth Ward, was acquitted by Judge Clark in the Court of Criminal Correction Thursday.
Officers Degnan and Guiney ordered a crowd of negroes away from the front of the booth at Tenth street and Chouteau avenue. They replied by drawing their revolvers and firing fifteen shots at the officers. They then ran and Towles was the only one caught. Since none of the bullets struck the officers, Judge Clark discharged the negro.

DARING TRAIN ROBBERY

St. Louis, Dec. 1.---Passenger train No.3 of the Frisco railroad, scheduled to leave St. Louis at 8:25 last night, was 25 minutes late, and when it did get under way it was held up by robbers who secured from the safe in the express car between $5,000 and $13,000.

According to the police reports, three men boarded the train at Old Orchard, and when near Glendale, at 9:30, they climbed over the water tank and the coal in the tender, and presenting a revolver at the engineer's head, made him come to a stop.

As a further inducement three other men who were in ambush at that point opened fire at the train, but no shots took effect. Messenger Mulrenen of the express company, was then ordered to open the door, and when he refused, dynamite was exploded and an entrance was effected.

It is understood that even then the expressman offered resistance, but he was overpowered, and the robbers, after securing their booty, took to the woods.

The St. Louis police permitted the report of the robbery to escape them at 11 pm., but thereafter they were strangely silent until a short time before the newspapers went to press, and then it leaked out that immediately on receipt of the report a special train, well manned by detectives, had been dispatched to the scene of the robbery from Chouteau avenue yards, instead of from the depot, the usual place of departure.

Five years ago a train was held up at about the same point near Glendale.

BOXED UP

We are informed that Zachariah Johnson, a citizen of this county, went out one morning last week to look for his horses, and when some distance from his house, he saw a wagon on the prairie near where his horses were standing.
After having reached that spot, two men suddenly sprang out of the wagon, seized and gagged him, put him in the wagon, and covered him with a box and drove off.
They soon stopped in the brush for the day, and continued their journey when it got dark. In the meantime, Mr. Johnson succeeded in getting one of his hands untied and went to work cutting his way out through the bottom of the wagon with a pocketknife, which was by perseverance accomplished just before daylight, and Mr. Johnson slipped out and succeeded in getting away.
He found himself in the vicinity of Fillmore, in Andrew county, some thirty miles from home.

The News Boy (Scott County) February 15, 1896

Blodgett.---Nine prisoners are now in our little jail and more are trying to break in. Recently some beer was put off at the depot for Mr. Bonnefon and when he wanted to haul it off he discovered one keg was missing.
Kalis Daily and Frank Smith lived in the same house on Treasurer Lambert's Place until last week, when a family quarrel separated the families and caused the beer episode to leak out. Daily and Smith were arrested and taken before Squire Deaton, where they plead guilty and got 14 days each. Daily also admitted stealing an ax from Joseph Portis and got an additional 10 days.
Flour and other articles have been missing from the depot and it is presumed that these parties got it.

W.H. McFarland was brought to jail charged with stealing two overcoats and two dress coats from the Dirnberger Hotel at Oran. One overcoat and one dress coat had been pawned at the saloon at Morley for drinks before he was arrested.

Each boy said he was 11 years old.
Police caught the boys yesterday morning while the lads were filling a sack with corn from a car on the M.K.& T tracks. They had taken about half a bushel when they were caught. It is believed they had previously committed several minor thefts.
