Fear the Marauders.
Topeka, Kan.-Always up to date t
and sometimes- spectacular, Kansas 2
has a new claim to fame. The banks I
Of the Sunflower state are being rob
bed by a well organized band of motor
pirates. Country bankers are frankly
terror-stricken and the . city bankers
are growing uneasy. Farmers with
fat rolls are tossing uneasily in their
So far the record shows that within
the last three months over 30 bhaks
have been robbed within the confines
of the state of Kansas. Over $100,000
has been taken and never a bandit has
as yet decorated the -interior of a jail
cell. Not a man has been .arrested,
and the clues are very vague an% hard
to follow. Kansas sheriffs, town mar
shals, detectives and chiefs of police
are at their wits' end and the robbers
continue to dirt in and out of the
state, raiding the richest and most
available -,banks apparently at - their
own pleasure. The authorities have
banded together with the Anti-Horse
Thief associations that are still found
over the state, and are vowing ven
geance, but so far nothing has come
of all their efforts.
A meeting of sheriffs and policemen
was held in Wichita in an effort to
devise ways and means for capturing
the bold marauders. But the black mo
tor cars filled with masked banditti
SStill race along the prairie highways.
State Bank Commissioner Dolley of
Kansas has taken matters into his
own hands to a certain extent, and has
called upon the governors of Oklahoma
and Nebraska to keep their bandits at
home. It is the contention of the Kan

the Imputation and the citizens of
' these commonwealths are calling upon
Kansas to remove the beam from her
own eye before trying to locate the
mlotes In those-of her neighbors.
The bandits have undoubtedly come
back into their old haunts. They are
riding the same prairies in motor cars
that they once galloped over upon
their cayuses. They seem to find the
change altogether profitable and com
''fortable as welt .it is safer to make a
get-away in a big powerful racing car
than it is to .grust to horseflesh and
animal starrmia. .It is easier to carry
away the -swag" in acar than it is to
put it af a gunny sack and. tie it to
a ss'.dle horn.
Kansas has known bank robbers in
the old days. The Kansas town Is
poor and indeed uninteresting that
<has no story toteflof the "day the
stage was held up a couple of miles
out of town," or of that other day
when the "Dalton gang rode into town
and held up the bank in broad day
light." They are able many times to
show you the exact spot where the
cashier was killed or where some bold
bandit was left wallowing on the
prairie when his companions were
forced to gallop out of town.
The bandits who have come back
are possibly not so spectacular as
those of a decade ago, but they get
what they go after. Motor cars as a
means of marauding are new even to
Kansas. But three-score raided banks
and a few thousand depositors can
testify that they are effective beyond
the dreams of those more dramatic
holdup men who dashed Into town on
lean and rangy cow ponies.
The states of Iowa, Oklahoma, Ne
braska and Texas, as well as Kansas
have suffered from a regular epidemic
of bank robberies during the past few
months, and as many as a dozen dif
ferent .owns in Oklahoma have had
Fbhei lkz burglarized.

CURED HER BABY OF ECZEMA
"I can't tell in words how happy the
word 'Cuticura' sounds to me, for it
cured my baby of Itching, torturing
eczema. It first came when she was
between three and four weeks old
appearing on her head. I used every
thing imaginable and had one doo
ter's bill after another, but nothing
cured dt. Then the eczema broke oui
so badly behind her ear that I really
thought her ear would come off. Foi
months I doctored It but to no avail
Then It began at her nose and hel
eyes were nothing but sores. I had tc
keep her In a dark room for twc
weeks. The doctor did no good, so]
stopped him coming.
"For about two weeks I had used
Cuticura Soap for her every day
then I got a box of Cuticura Olntmen1
and began to use that. In a weel
there was a marked Improvement. It
all I used two cakes of Cuticura Soai
and one box of Cuticura Ointment and
my baby was cured of the sores. Thiu
-was last November; now her hair i
rgrowing out nicely and she has not a
scar on her. I can not praise Cuti
eura enough, I can take my child any
where and people are amazed to se.
her without a sore. From the time
she was four weeks old until she wai
three years- she was never without the
terrible eruption, but now, thanks tc
Cuticura, I have a well child." (Sign

How Pat Proved It.
An Irishman was once serving In a
regiment in India. Not liking the
climate, Pat tried to evolve a trick by
which he could get home. Accordingly
he went to the doctor and told him
his eyesight was bad. The doctor
looked at him for a while and then
"How can you prove to me that
your eyesight is bad?"
Pat looked about the room and at
last said: "Well, doctor, do ye see
that nail on the wall?"
"Yes," replied the doctor.
"Well," then replied Pat, "I can't."
Runs on the Bank of England.
Even the Bank of England has not
been entirely free from runs nor from
the necessity of saving itself by
strategy. In 1745, for instance, It was
forced to employ agents to present
notes, which were paid as slowly as
possible in sixpences, the cash being
immediately brought In by another
door and paid In again, while anxious
holders of notes vainly tried to se
cure attention. In 1825, too, only the
accidental discovery of 700.000 21
notes saved the bank from stopping
