BANDITS BALKED

St. Joseph, Mo., Mar 4.-- Four masked bandits made an attempt to hold up Rock Island passenger train No. 18, Chicago bound, at a point near Stockbridge, 3 miles east of this city, last night, but the nerve displayed by Engineer James D. McKinney, in charge of the train, saved his company a heavy loss in treasure, and he also escaped with his life.
Three miles east of this city the train slowed because of a red lantern on the tracks. McKinney suddenly saw several men with guns, he seized the throttle and pulled her wide open. The enraged robbers began spraying the train with bullets and McKinney and his fireman jumped down to the bottom of their cab for cover.
When the train reached Stockton it was found that over 100 bullets had hit it. Fortunately no one on board was hit.

Marble Hill Press April 20, 1911

Two prisoners, Bob Fuqua, charged with burglary and larceny, and John Essary, who was "doing time," broke out of the new jail at Kennett the night of April 6.
The old story, too much confidence in the prisoners. They were allowed the privilege of the corridors, it was so convenient for a friend to hand in a file and the rest was easy.

A DOCTOR'S QUARREL

Macon, Mo., Jan 14.-- In a street fight today with revolvers between Morris Morris and Dr. W.G. Larribee, three persons were wounded, two of these it is feared fatally.

The fight was caused by a dispute over a bill at Dr. T.J. Morris' drug store between the proprietor and Dr. Larribee. The latter refused to pay his bill, claiming an error. After some words had passed, Dr. Morris ordered Dr. Larribee from the store. The latter soon returned and called the proprietor to the sidewalk.

Morris Morris, the doctor's son, feared trouble and grasping his father's revolver from the counter, followed his father to the sidewalk. Dr. Morris had no sooner reached the pavement when Dr. Larribee drew his revolver and commenced firing.

Morris Morris returned the fire and shot Dr. Larribee in the left arm and right leg. Deputy Sheriff Nelson, a bystander, was hit by a stray bullet. The missile passed entirely through his body producing a fatal wound. Another stray bullet struck S.M. Wiggins, a farmer, in the leg, producing only slight wounds.

Ripley County Democrat (Doniphan, Mo) June 29, 1906 Pg3

Sheriff Andy O'Neal and his posse failed in their effort last Friday and Saturday to locate the Eastham boys.
The hills up in that section of the county are rough and the underbrush makes the country a wilderness in which it is impossible to find anything unless previously definitely located. Nevertheless, the Eastham boys will be caught. It is said that they have sent word that they will surrender to Deputy Brooks, or any other deputy, but that they will not surrender or be taken by Sheriff O'Neal.





St. Louis Republic August 2, 1903 Pg21

TWO ARTERIES ARE SEVERED

Henry Morris, 22 years old, was seriously cut by Thomas Calagher of No. 216 Chouteau avenue, it is charged, in a fight in front of a saloon at No. 3239 North Broadway at 9:30 last night.

Two arteries in the left arm were severed and Morris suffered the loss of so much blood that his condition is regarded as critical. The wounds were inflicted with a penknife.

After temporary treatment at the North End Dispensary, Morris was brought to his home, No. 3207 North Second street. Calagher was arrested and the police say they will ask the issuance of a warrant charging assault with intent to kill.
