held by one of the rufflaus, while the other,
with revolver in band, went to the bed-room,
where Mrs. Walton was in lied. She was
threatened with instant death, if she made any
noise or refused to disclose where Ihe money
was. She had, however, made considerable
noise, aud the dog at the door, had also sound

could be detected. It is not known that there
is any one in that puacefu) community that Is
capable of such conduct, and bow entire slrau-
gers should know that Mr. Walton sometimes
handles considerable amounts of money, and
