Ripley County Democrat (Doniphan, Mo) August 17, 1906 Pg2

SHOT HIS WIFE AT PICNIC

Hartsville.--- Amid a throng of hundreds of people who were attending a picnic held by negroes here, Mike McCarty shot and fatally wounded his wife, Florence McCarty, and also shot Jeff Franklin, a farmer.
McCarty fired three shots, all of which were aimed at his wife, two taking effect in her arms and body, the third striking Franklin in the abdomen. All the parties are white.





The Weekly Intelligencer (Lexington, Mo) June 2, 1894 Pg3

One day last week a lightning rod peddler secured permission to put up rods over the house of an old negro named Andrew Jackson. He was to do the work for five dollars.
When the work was done he persuaded Jackson to become his agent, and promised him great things. He then got Jackson to sign a note for five dollars.
That is the last he has heard from the peddler, but it is said that a note for $125 has suddenly turned up in the hands of "innocent purchasers."
People should be careful about buying notes, horses or anything else from travelling strangers, and when they come across such confidence men as the one mentioned above, they should cripple him for life, or give him a new suit of tar and feathers.

The Potosi Journal June 26, 1895 Pg4

Sheriff Arthur of Crawford county, and one deputy, both armed to the teeth, arrived in Potosi last Saturday for the purpose of taking the six Greens back to Steelville for trial, which was set for Monday.
The officers and prisoners left Sunday morning for their destination. It is said that the prisoners felt some trepidation about going back to Crawford county on account of the mob feeling that still exists against them in that county. The attorneys for the defense will probably try to secure a change of venue to this county and have the case tried here.

The Jasper News January 4, 1906 Pg2

IT DIDN'T COME

The Carthage Press says: " The case of the state against the four Neck City saloon keepers charged with selling liquors on Sunday was called here today before Justice Barton but the defendants asked for, and were granted, a change of venue to a Jasper justice."
The above case has failed to show up at Jasper thus far, and it is understood that it was afterward decided to send it to a Jasper justice.

Fair Play (Ste. Genevieve) November 18, 1893 Pg3

Convicts David J. Douglas, 14 years for murder, from Pike county, and Charles Smith made their escape from the Chester prison Monday night in a daring manner, but the latter was caught before he had gone a mile.
At the muzzle of a revolver, Douglas took Turnkey Ed Barth's keys from him and made his escape, taking Smith with him. Barth raised the alarm before the men got out and Keeper McKee came to his assistance, but was fired on by the desperate convict and severely wounded.
The convict was hit with one shot. It is supposed they made their escape through the railroad gate and went off down the river in skiffs, as Smith was caught on the bank of the river drying his clothes as if he had been overturned.

Frank Marshall Edwards
" The Pancake Swindler " 1920s


The Aunt Jemima Mills Company is offering a reward of $100.00 to anyone giving information leading to the arrest of Frank Marshall Edwards, formerly a salesman for the Ralston Purina Co. in Kansas City, Mo.
Edwards is a dangerous imposter and is operating under many different names. He claims to be a special representative of the Aunt Jemima Mills Company and that his chief duty is to call on retail grocers and inspect stocks of Aunt Jemima pancake flour.
He invariably destroys a small quantity of goods for which he takes the merchant's receipt. He then gives the grocer a bogus draft, drawn upon the Aunt Jemima Mills Company for $20.00 on which is stamped Aunt Jemima pancake flour, and he collects the difference in money.
He is accompanied by a blonde woman and drives a Scripps-Booth roadster.


1922

The pancake swindler that left a trail of bogus drafts from Missouri to California has finally been captured and is now safely incarcerated in jail in Los Angeles.
