Franklin County Tribune (Union, Mo) February 18, 1944 Pg3

Frank Ernest, Hawk Point bank robber who escaped from the state prison last Thursday by scaling a high wall, was captured Friday at Bonnots Mill. Railroad section workers found him crawling along a railroad track. A bone in his foot was broken and badly bruised by his drop of nearly 40 feet from the prison
wall.
Ernest's bank raid accomplice, Jack Stroemple, climbed the prison wall with Ernest on a fire hose, but broke both legs in his leap to the outside and was recaptured.





Weekly Graphic (Kirksville, Mo) January 12, 1883 Pg2

The president has refused to pardon Dick Little and the consequence is that it is quite likely Frank James will not be convicted.
From all accounts Little is little if any better than James himself. He is now awaiting sentence for robbing a United States paymaster in Georgia. We will not be at all surprised if Frank James escapes by a Scotch verdict of--- " not proven but don't do it again."

THIEVES RAID TWO DWELLINGS

Burglars evidently were scared away from two dwellings in the vicinity of May Greene school Thursday night before they were able to get much loot, according to police.
The homes entered were those of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Neville, 601 Locust street, and Mr. and Mrs. L.E. King, 1022 Sturdivant street.
The King burglary was discovered when the family returned home shortly after 10 o'clock and at the Neville place about 11 o'clock. Both families had been at a picnic at Fairground Park.

At the Neville residence, where entrance was gained through a door, clothes were found stacked in a large cardboard box, and two guns, a rifle and a shotgun, were placed near a door, ready to be carried out. A car arriving at a nearby house likely scared the burglars.
A .22 caliber automatic High Standard brand pistol was stolen from the King dwelling. A rear window had been forced open.
