Weekly Graphic (Kirksville) October 13, 1882

Frank James surrendered to Governor Crittenden on Thursday, and now, to hear Frank tell it, he is one of the most lied about, ill used, patient, saint-like and forgiving mortals in the land.
He claims to have been living an honest peaceable and industrious life for the past four years and prefers a surrender and take the chances of having more desperate crimes laid to his charge, or to live longer in dread of capture.

Potosi Journal February 27, 1895 Pg4

A number of people in Potosi have received letters soliciting cancelled stamps, saying the stamps were being collected for the benefit of a crippled girl.
The post-office authorities have investigated the matter and pronounce the whole thing a fraud, and warn the public not to reply to the letters. It is estimated that upwards of 15,000,000 stamps have already been collected by the parties, who probably got up the scheme in hopes of finding some rare and valuable stamps in the collection.

There have been several mysterious "hold-ups" in Sedalia of late, and the police seem powerless to cope with the mysterious footpad, who is described as being over six feet in height, gaunt and fierce. Women and children have been numbered among his victims.
