A NEW SKIN GAME

Here's a brand new swindle which is being successfully worked on the farmers of southwest Missouri.

A well dressed stranger stays all night with the intended victim and during the stay reports that he has lost a valuable diamond pin somewhere about the place.
After searching for half a day he takes his leave, feeling badly about his loss and requests the family to keep a watch out for the pin, adding that he will pay $100 for its recovery.

A few days later a bum appears at the place and accidently shows a pin exactly like the one they had been looking for and casually remarks that he found it just outside the gate.
After some dickering the pin is sold for $25 and sometimes $50.

The farmers then write to the address left by the stranger and asks him to bring his $100 and get his pin. He never comes, as the bum was in on the game and the pin had cost 20 cents.

The St. Joseph Weekly Gazette January 9, 1890

A YOUTHFUL HIGHWAYMAN

Kansas City, Jan 7.-- Homer Lamaster, a young and sorrowful lad of Fort Scott, Kan., was sent to his home today by the Humane Society.
He was found crying on a bench in the Union depot last night. He said that his mother had given him $10 to pay for some coal. On his way to the coal office he said he met a boy known only as "Dick," who from Lamaster's description is a very bad young man.

Lamaster showed Dick the $10 and he was induced to go into an alley nearby. Once there, Dick pulled a revolver and placing the muzzle to young Lamaster's head, made him give up the money and told him to go with him or he would shoot.

Dick purchased two tickets for Kansas City, and he and young Lamaster boarded a Fort Scott train and arrived in this city last evening. Dick told Lamaster to wait in the emigrant waiting room until he called for him. Dick never called, and the Humane Society officers took charge of the forsaken boy.
