The Jasper News October 10, 1901

A JASPERIAN HELD UP

Mr. I.W. Dabney arrived home last Saturday afternoon from a business trip in north Missouri and Iowa. He reports an experience with footpads while in Sedalia last Thursday night which left him penniless.
He had started from the depot to go up town.
Along the sidewalk not far from the depot was a line of billboards, and just as he reached the end, two men stepped out from behind the boards and he found himself staring down the muzzle of a six-shooter.

While one of the men covered him with the revolver, the other one went through his pockets and in less time than it takes to tell it, he was relieved of his pocketbook containing between 34 and 35 dollars, the robbers then disappeared in the darkness. Fortunately the footpads in their hurry overlooked his watch for which he is thankful.

Mr. Dabney notified the officers but there were small chances of apprehending the culprits. He visited the scene of the holdup and found his empty pocketbook in the weeds.
