caped In tho darknoHS. According to
tho local ofllcera of tho Pullman com
pany, tho robber secured but $G5. The

ninBk, boarded tho sleeper at Slater.
When the train had gained heart
way ho entered tho Bleopor and en
countered L. S. Pearson, Pullman con
ductor; C. W. Roller, a flagman, and
It. Wood, a negro porter, all of Chicago.
Lovellng two revolvers at tho train
men, the robber commanded them to
proceed ahead of him and wako up the
passengers. As his command wns car
ried out, tho robber, forcing the con
ductor, porter and flagman ahead of
him, secured what booty ho could In
his hurried "march through tho car.
"When ho had reached tho front end of
tho car ho started for tho second Pull
man. Tho porter, however, had man
aged to get Jar enough ahead of the
othors to miiko a dnsh for tho second
car and slammed and locked the door
in the faco of the robber. The train
then waB at a point about ono mile
cast of Olasgow. Realizing, that ho
could proceed no further with his
work, tho robber pulled tho air rope.
"Whllo tho train was slackening Us
speed ho Jumped off nml disappeared
In tho darkness.

from their homes in panic and thou
sands nioro passed a sleepless night
as a result of a series of incendiary

buildings which was fired. She died

a result of climbing down a redhot fire
escape, is in a serious condition.
Tho rapidly succeeding fires, the
crowds of evicted tenants and the ter
rifvlng rumors- spread through tho
neighborhood, with tho constant ap
pearance and roappearanco of the fire
engines and tho big squads of police,
""raised the people throughout tho vlcln
'lty to a high pitch of excitement,
which did not lessen until daylight
brought a measuro of assurance that
tho incendiarism was ended tor a wniic.

Book Dates Back to 1309.
What is boliovod by antiquarians to
bo tho oldest paper book 'la exlstonco
is tho "Red Book of Lynn," an ancient
register belonging to the corporation
of King's Lynn, England. This vol
urao Is known ns tho "Red Book"
from its original binding having been
of that color. Tho first entry Is a
transcript of tho will of Potor do
'Thorndon, burgess of Lynn, dated
1300; tho latest entry Is dated in tho
15th year of King Richard II. Fifty
years ago tho book was repairod and
robound, and tho leaves, which ago
had reduced to a looso, fibrous sub
starfco, wero carefully resized as an
aid to preservation.

more serious catastrophe. The cap-'

two crafts wore getting way on them.
Some ono In tho boat shouted, they
