- ROB FAST MAIL TRAiN.
Express and Postal Cars Rifled Neai
Erie, Pa.-Two of Crew Badly
Erie, Pa., June 30.-A fast mail anc
;passenger train on the Philadelphia &
Erie railroad was held up tonight fivE
miles from here by a band of a dozer
masked men. The mail and express
cars were rifled and two of the crew,
C. H. Block, of Erie, mail clerk, and
H. D. Rooney, of Erie, conductor, were

train was due in this city at
tonight. A few minutes before
clock, when the train was mak
a large curve, the engineer saw
obstruction ahead. He applied the

Thought It Was Collision.
When the train hit the obstructiOn
was believed by the passengers that
ere had been a collision with another
train. The next moment, however, the
crack of revolvers acquainted them
with the real cause of the train's stop.
As the train came to a standstill sev
eral of the passengers alighted to
learn the trouble. Their presence
.girew the fire of the band of masked
men and there was a stampede to re
enter the cars.
An unknown passenger caught hold
of one of the robbers and was picked
up bodily and thrown over a 30-foot
embankment. His condition is serious.
Command the Doors.
Almost before the train had reached
the obstruction the masked men had
taken up their po'itions at practically
every entrance to the cars. When the
passengers began pouring from the
cars there were a few gruff orders
from the men to get back inside. When
a number of the excited passengers
failed to take this advice, the bandits
owpned ire. They shot along the
sides of- the cars, level with the win
dows, and this evidently put an end to
the curiosity of the passengers. A
number of women fainted 'while the
*screams of others caused much con
fvsion. The train arrived in this city
about midnight. The passengers were
badly frightened and could not give a
ccjgmected story of what had occurredl.
According to the opinion here, it
was not a train that expert robbers
could be expected to attack. It is be
lieved the bandits were foreigners.

RUNAWAY LAD TAKE, OWN LIFE.
Tennessee Boy's Pathetic End Far
Away From Home-Pitiable
Greenville, July 2.-Roy Roach, a
17-year-old runaway lad, of Jefferson
City, Tenn., was killed in a playful at
tempt at suicide, at Old Hundred, a
settlement in Oakland township, some
eighteen miles below Greenville coun
ty court house, about 3 o'clock Satur
day afternoon. The circumstances sur
rounding the tragedy are most pitiable.
The lad came to Greenville some
three months ago and sought employ
ment on the farm of Arvin Boyce, near
Old Hundred. He worked faithfully
and gave every indication of being a
trustworthy young fellow. Saturday
afternoon he and a thirteen-year-old
boy, Fred Austin, son of County Com
missioner J. M. Austin, were in a
room together in the house of. J. L.
Pearson, a brother-in-law of the Aus
According to the testimony offered
by young Austin at the coroner's in
quest today, the two were preparing to
go to a branch to go in swimimng.
Young Austin said that, while he was
dressing, Roy Roach picked up a
breech-loading gun and asked Austin
to watch him shoot himself. Austin
said he told Roach to look out, for the
gun might be loaded, whereupon the
lad replied that he did not care. In
1an instant the Roach lad had fallen to
the floor, the right side of his throat
being torn away by the discharge from
the gun. Young Austin ran for help
and soon returned to the house with
Testimony offered at the inquest 'by
those first to reach the scene of the
tragedy is somewhat puzzling. A sin
gle-barrelled gun with a discharged
shell in it was found standing in a
far corner of the room. Near the body,
and leaning against the side of a bed,
was a repeating shotgun, with loaded
sheels in it.
Efforts have been made to locate the
lad's people in Jefferson City, but so far
no word has been recived from any
one. A heartrending scene, and one
that moved the jurors at the inquest
to tears, was the reading of a letter
found in the dead boy's'pocket. The
communication was from the boy's
father and the burden of it was a pray
er to the wandering boy to come rhome.
"I look for you on every train, my
boy," the letter ran. "Oh, when will
you return home?" The last para
graph of the letter read: "Roy, No. 11
has just gone by and I had to stop
-writing and look out to see if you had
gotten off. Come back, 'boy, and bring
the old banjo."
The body was brought to Greeenville
tonight and embalmed. A purse of $50
was made up by those who attended
the inquest to defray the expenses of
shipping the body home, in case the
parents can,/be found.
