The Mansfield Mirror (Wright Co) June 24, 1915 Pg4

JUST A FAKE

A woman and two children applied to Mayor F.H. Riley Friday for transportation to Cabool, stating that they were stranded but would meet friends at Cabool.
The mayor thought that she did not need help and refused. She then solicited alms around town, but with little success. Going to the Frisco depot, she pulled out a roll of bills and bought the railroad tickets, saying she didn't need Mansfield cash to go on.
All of which goes to show that beggars are not always broke and that Mansfield is not the ripe field for grafters that some people seem to imagine.

St. Joseph Observer October 21, 1922

WHO KILLED HER ?

When a police car in which were officers Owen J. Gartland, George H. Pauly and O.J. Strout chased a supposed bootlegger out on Pickett road Thursday night, a shot from either the police car or the supposed bootlegger car struck innocent little Nellie Margaret Hale, the 14-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hale of 1308 South Sixteenth street and killed her instantly.

The little girl was out driving with her two brothers about 8 pm when the supposed bootlegger car chased by the police car went by, and someone shot her to death.

The two brothers and Joseph Corliss, the other boy in the car with Nellie, swear positively that the shot that killed the little girl came from the police car. The police officers claim the bootlegger fired the shot. An inquest will determine the matter next Thursday.
Feeling runs high over the shooting and there will probably be a sequel.

The Morgan County Democrat (Versailles, Mo) June 2, 1905 Pg3

Four well known and prominent citizens of Jacksonville, Randolph county, were arrested last week charged with violating the game law. They plead guilty to having a fish trap set in East Fork, four miles west of Jacksonville, stating that it had been there for some time and that the fish caught in it had been divided among the families of the neighborhood, but that none had been sold.
They were released upon payment of the costs of the case and the promise to immediately take the trap out and never put it in again.

MURDER AND LYNCHING AT SEDALIA

The town of Sedalia was thrown into excitement last Saturday afternoon by the murder of Joe Geimer, a citizen of Sedalia.
The cold-blooded deed was perpetrated by Joe Woods, one of Bacon Montgomery's men. Without any provocation or previous difficulty, Woods shot Geimer through the breast, killing him almost instantly.

Immediately after the occurrence the citizens caught Woods, put a rope around his neck, and after beating him almost to death, they dragged him through the town naked, and finally hung him, after which, to make " assurance doubly sure " they shot him through the head and left his body hanging till 9 o'clock the next morning.

Woods was a sergeant under Bacon Montgomery, and was charged with robbing Mitchell, a banker at Lexington, and participating in other crimes.

On April 15, 1901, Lizzie Gass handed her father, Louis Gass, a revolver with which to shoot Michael McKenna, at one time her fiancé, at her home, No. 2403 De Kalb street in St. Louis at about 8 o'clock in the morning.
Louis Gass fired one shot at McKenna as the latter was jumping from a second-story window to the sidewalk for safety. The bullet plowed through McKenna's scalp on the right side of the head, inflicting a wound which the City Hospital doctors say will heal in a few days.
After the shooting both Gass and his daughter were taken to the police station and later released.
