pany, was murdered by two robbera
early Sunday on a westbound Atch
ison, Topeka & Santa Fe train be

Tho local nud through safes wero
looted, over $1,000 and Jowolry being
taken and the robbers on-aped.
Iho body of Messenger Balloy was

tho enr, lying In a pool of blood. Tho
back of tho skull was crushed and
tho end of tho car In which It was
lying was spattered with blood. Thoro
was no evldenco of any struggle. Tho
iiu'icatloru are that tho murder was
committed whllo tho messenger was
ll.tiley wr.s last scon nllvo at Strong

car door Just enough to throw out a
jmekago of way bills, then closed It
quickly. The custom of tho messen
ger had beon to go to Bleep soon after
leaving Klorenco, nnd It Is probable
that ho did this last night.
After slaying tho sleeping messou
ger tho robbers covered tho dead
man's head with his coat, took tho
safo keys from the dead man's pock
ets and ramacked the safes. Then
the keys wore put into Ralley's over
