The Mansfield Mirror (Wright County) January 7, 1915

ROBBERS VISIT MANSFIELD

Thieves made a good haul in Mansfield Sunday night, when they secured about $155 in cash from G.W. Freeman & Son's general store, and about $125 worth of jewelry from the Mansfield Drug Co.
About $80 worth of goods stolen from the latter place were left at the Freeman store, however, and thus recovered by J.P. Coday, who owns the Mansfield Drug store.

A COWARDLY DRIVER

As Eugene Soper, the veteran 68-year-old druggist, was crossing Seventh and Faraon at 1 o'clock Monday morning, on his way home from the Robidoux Pharmacy, he was struck by a fast moving car, knocked down and badly injured, his left arm shattered near the elbow, four ribs broken, and his head and face badly cut and bruised.
He was removed to Noyes Hospital where he was given medical attention and his wounds dressed. He is in critical condition.
As soon as the coward who hit him saw what he had done, he put on all speed and escaped from the neighborhood.
The St. Joseph Automobile Club offered a reward of $100 to anyone who will furnish information which will cause the arrest and conviction of the speedster.

Marble Hill Press December 22, 1910

The body of a man who had been murdered and robbed was found in a clump of bushes between 3 large logs on a farm 4 miles north of Poplar Bluff this morning.
A bath ticket of a hot springs establishment containing the name Ed Maase was the only thing discovered that might lead to his identity.
The victim had been dragged 75 yards from the Iron Mountain Railroad tracks, slain and his body completely hidden.
A farmer looking for lost stock discovered the body. It had been there for several days.

ROBBERS TOOK PART OF HER INHERITANCE

According to the statement of Mrs. Marietta Doyle, while she was absent from her home between 10:30 and 11 o'clock Thursday morning, robbers entered her home at No. 1840 O'Fallon street and departed with $940, two gold watches and several pieces of jewelry.
All belonged to Miss Florence R. Doyle, except one watch, which was the property of the mother. The money reported stolen was inherited by Miss Florence R Doyle from her Uncle Martin E Doyle, a wine merchant of New York.





Chariton Courier June 13, 1884 Pg3

On Thursday of last week while a party were seining in Salt River, Monroe County, the body of James W Taylor, a youth 16 years of age, was caught in the sein.
His neck was broken and his hands tied behind him. It is supposed that he was foully dealt with and suspicion points to a man by the name of Heckard, a former employer of Taylor, and a man by the name of Reed.

At about 1 o'clock this morning, Officers Broyles and Walton arrested a man, about 35 years of age, whom they found standing on Felix street between Main and Second, in front of a business window which he had evidently butted out with his head, for his forehead was badly lacerated and bleeding excessively.

WIFE-MURDERER INSANE

Last February the wife of Gordon Ramey, of Lancaster, left him, going to her father's house. Ramey went there at night and shot her through the window of the sitting room, the ball penetrating her heart. The next day he was arrested.
About three weeks ago, Sheriff Obryant became satisfied Ramey was deranged and Judge Nat Shelton called a special term of court for the purpose of holding an inquisition.
The jury returned a verdict of insanity. If Ramey is restored to sanity he will be returned to stand trial on the charge of murdering his wife.

The Laclede Blade December 27, 1912 Pg2

HYPNOTIZED BY AN OCCULTIST

Liberty, Mo., Hypnotism as an aid to selling worthless glasses, is said to have been used by a fake occultist in Kearney. He sought women as his victims usually. He said he possessed more than ordinary powers in fitting glasses.
One of his victims was Mrs. Elvira T. Carey. He induced her to pay $29 for a pair of glasses by telling her that her sight was very bad and that there was great danger of her going blind if she did not buy the glasses. That advice was accompanied by rubbing his fingers over her head. Mrs. Carey believes she was hypnotized.
Other women in the neighborhood tell of similar experiences.






Potosi Journal January 30, 1895 Pg4
