THEIR ESCAPE AVERTED

" Buck " Williams, one of the guards at the penitentiary, had an exciting experience one night last week.
Two convicts had drilled out of their cell and were preparing to make their escape when discovered. They had secured a pistol and began shooting at the guard without effect, and Mr. Williams succeeded in capturing them before they were able to make their escape. A large amount of dynamite was found concealed about them.
Buck is one of the most efficient employees at that institution.

JOPLIN'S WARNING

Joplin bankers will be prepared to receive bank robbers.
Representatives of the banks met the other day and decided to purchase twenty Winchester rifles and place them where they would do the most good in case of a raid by outlaws. It is proposed, also, to offer a reward of $1,000 for every robber killed in the event of a raid. It is not feared that a raid will be made on Joplin, but the banks propose to be prepared.

Kansas City Journal December 25, 1897 Pg7

SMOOTH WOMAN PICKPOCKET

A well-dressed woman who wears a bead cape and is about 37 years old, has been doing a lucrative business for the past week picking the pockets of women who were shopping.
In all of the large stores many complaints have been made to the proprietors by women whose purses have been taken from their pockets or whose packages have been taken from their shopping bags.
The woman has used the same tactics at all the places. She uses a knife or pair of scissors and cuts open the shopping bag women carry or cuts her way to a woman's pocket.
Her work has not been difficult during the rush of customers at all the big stores. She goes into a store, watches for a time until she sees some shopper with a well-filled purse or some valuable package, then follows her from store to store until an opportunity is given to tap her shopping bag or pocket. After this, she goes on her way in search of another victim.
Police have no clues.

SURVIVES FOURTH HOLDUP

For the fourth time in less than two months, J.M. Atkins, filling station attendant, was held up and robbed last night at the Coryell Oil Company filling station at 4123 King Hill avenue.

Atkins reported to the police that the robber came into the station and asked for a drink of water and began commenting upon how easy it was to stage holdups in Kansas. The next thing Atkins knew a gun had replaced the glass of water in the bandit's hand and he was being forced into the restroom and the door locked.

About $12 was taken from the cash register. The bandit was dressed in blue denim and was unshaved. Atkins was released a short time later when a customer came in to purchase some oil.

Robbers pried a window open at the Diamond Oil Company filling station, Tenth street and Mitchell avenue, last night, but nothing was missing.

William Tedford of 1612 Charles street, attendant at the Shell Oil Company filling station, Ninth street and Mitchell avenue, reported to the police that two men held him up at an alley on Sylvanie street between Fourteenth and Fifteenth streets last night and searched him but got no money. He had left the day's receipts at the station.
Tedford said the same men accompanied by a woman had followed him home Wednesday night.
