The officers, during the show in the afternoon, discovered four negroes and one white man shooting "craps" and immediately took them to jail to be held for trial. Each was fined $25 and costs, the minimum fine for gambling in this county, this morning.

ROBBERS ! ROBBERS !

A medium sized man dressed in a dark suit and wearing a light hat entered the home of Todd Holdman Monday evening about 8 o'clock but was chased off before he had time to get anything valuable.
No one was home when he entered the gate but Mrs. Holdman was nearby and saw him but thought he was one of the men from home.
She immediately went home but upon entering the room the man ran and the truth of the matter came to her mind. She gave chase but soon lost sight of him.

STREETCAR CREW ROUTS HIGHWAYMEN

Two highwaymen were routed Sunday evening when they attempted to hold up and rob a car of the Clayton and Forest Park Railroad Company near Price post office in St. Louis County.

The car was in charge of Conductor John G. McNeal and Motorman Edward Wallace. It was running eastward and had just crossed McKnight road when two masked men jumped aboard. One of them pulled the trolley off the wire while the other one drew his revolver and ordered McNeal to throw up his hands.

Instead of complying, the plucky conductor seized the fellow and yelled to Wallace to come to his assistance. The car was going down-grade at the time and at a rapid speed. Wallace hastily applied the brake and rushed to the rear of the car, where the two highwaymen were fighting with McNeal. When they heard him coming they jumped off the car and disappeared in the darkness.

The sheriff went to the place immediately and searched the neighborhood but no trace of the fellows could be found.
