The Jasper News March 31, 1904

ROBBED ON THE TRAIN

Linn Squier, the 16 year old son of J.N. Squier, was robbed of all his belongings while on the train at Pleasant Hill last Friday night.
He was on his way to St. Louis where he had a job promised him. He started from Jasper on the 8 o'clock train and at Pleasant Hill he was compelled to wait 2 hours for connections. The coach he was in was side-tracked and to accommodate a sick woman in the car, all the lights were put out except one, Linn took advantage of the occasion for a nap.
When the conductor came around to get his ticket, Linn felt in his pocket and discovered it was gone. He also found out that his money, a silver watch, spectacles and everything else he had was missing. He figures a man that was sitting next to him when he fell asleep had robbed him. That man could not be found on the train. The conductor offered to take Linn to St. Louis anyway but he did not relish being in a big city penniless so he returned home to Jasper.

WARRANT OUT AGAINST WOMAN

Louise Roetger, a comely young woman of Kirkwood, was yesterday charged in a warrant issued by Justice of the Peace J. Will Barron of Webster Groves with assault with intent to kill.
The warrant was issued on the affidavit of Lydia Laube, who claims she had a narrow escape from being shot by the accused.

Miss Roetger is the sister of Charles Roetger, proprietor of a restaurant in Kirkwood. The Laube woman worked for him, and found it necessary to sue for her wages.
Justice Barron gave her judgment for $44 and issued an attachment against the defendant's goods to satisfy the claim.
Constable Lenz accompanied her to Kirkwood to serve the attachment. Miss Roetger met them, and drew a revolver. She pointed the weapon at the plaintiff, who fled. The constable then disarmed Miss Roetger.





Weekly Graphic (Kirksville) September 15, 1882 Pg3

Sneak thieves are plying their vocation with considerable industry in some parts of town. We understand the premises of Charley Allgaier have been thus honored and clothing hanging out and other small articles taken. Uncle Charley says some of them will get a dose yet if they don't stop it.

BAD FIRE AT KENNETT

Burglars visited Kennett the other morning before daylight, blew open the post office safe and then fired the town, 17 buildings being consumed.
Loss, $30,000; insurance, $10,000. The stocks of goods were generally moved out, but badly damaged. The bank's safe stood the test. That institution is doing business in temporary quarters, and will rebuild at once.

SURPRISED A TRIO OF YOUTHS

While in the vacant building at the northwest corner of Sixth and Elm streets Friday night, for the purpose of ascertaining if the building had been pilfered, Patrolman Sheehan encountered a trio of boys, who effected an entrance by means of a duplicate key.

Two of the boys were arrested by Officer Sheehan, but the third fled. The officer fired a shot at the fugitive, who was later arrested at Sixth and Spruce streets by Sergeant Colestock and Officer Kraemer.

The boys arrested by Sheehan were Thomas Torpey, 14 years old, living at Third and Rutger streets, and Patrick White, 16 years old, 317 Spruce street. The third boy was Harry Murphy, 20 years old.

A report was made that the building had been entered and lead pipe stolen. Officer Sheehan was assigned to investigate and discovered that all of the pipes in the building had been disconnected. That's when the trio of youths entered.
