Chariton Courier August 15, 1884 Pg2

A few days ago a son of Charles Mittler, of Marthasville, Mo., was riding quietly along the road about two miles from that place, when a tramp with a revolver in his hand jumped from behind a tree and seized the bridal rein, at the same time firing a shot which passed through the crown of young Mittler's hat.
This so frightened the horse that he ran away and, no doubt saved the young man's life. The tramp fired at Mittler again while he was fleeing, but to no effect.

I guess its tough to feel generous after you get ripped off.

I read an old newspaper article once where this guy in New York lost a valise containing $30,000 and some kid found it and returned it to him. The guy gave him $1 for a reward. Weeks later, the guy was trying to sue the kid and the newspaper for what the kid said about him.

Yikes. Giving to other people is a tough one for people, eh? Who does Warren Buffett give to? Other greedy people like him?

THEY WANTED TO KILL HIM

Maryville, Mo., Jan 1.---Last night about 8 o'clock a pistol shot was heard on the walk leading to No. 9.
A crowd quickly gathered and found David A. Scott standing in the stairway leading to the G.A.R. hall with a smoking pistol in his hand.
He was asked what the trouble was and stated that Will Sales and Ry Kissinger were after him, and wanted to take his life, and that he shot off his pistol to create a crowd for protection. He gave himself into custody of Marshal Wade who took his pistol for safety.

MURDER STILL A MYSTERY

Detectives McCarthy and Dooley have been unable to obtain any clue to the murderer of Tom Cox, the athletic director of the Christian Brothers' College.
The deed seems destined to become one of the "mysterious" cases in the police annals.
Brother Gideon has received a letter from Cox's mother, Mrs. Mary Cox of Titusville, Pa., in which she asks that he do all that he possibly can to detect the assassins.
She is in failing health, the letter states, but she hopes that the murderer of her son will be apprehended before she dies. She also requests the particulars of the crime.

The County Paper (Oregon, Mo) April 20, 1883 Pg8

Saturday evening two men were arrested for drunkenness, and the mayor being absent, were brought before the president of the board, E.A. Welty, and fined one dollar each and costs.
The president and attorney declined to claim their costs; the judgments were paid and the parties discharged. We learn, however, that failing to leave the city, they became drunk again, were rearrested and put into the calaboose until Sunday morning.





On November 12, 1883, John Wood who ran a store at Ridge Prairie, killed Jim Morgan with a shotgun as he was walking along a road. They had quarreled two weeks earlier.
