them I would have to go and get my
gun, but would meet them at the office
Mr. Pitman and Boss were there at the"
time I left. I went to my mother's
placed where I got my gun. Then I
went to a confectionery store on Myr
tle avenue, where I phoned and asked
for the police chief. Mr. Greet asked
me If he could do anything. We met
in the courthouse yard. I told nim
the facts. He told me to go ahead and
act as if I was in earnest. .After this
I went to the Mills building. I found
Mr. Boss and Mr. Pitman. "We had a
further talk about the plans.
Ross Changes Clothes.
"There were two police present at
the station, where I told Mr. Greet

ment I am often appalled at the way the
young American girls make up on the
street Women past 30 would hesitate
to use so much cosmetic on their faces
not only because it is so bad for the
skin, but because it makes the face
look so old. But then women of 30

We left the room when Mr. Pitman
gave the signal a rap on the door.
"Boss and I left the room. We went
to the closet as prearranged, and put
on our masks. Mine was an old blue
handkerchief. Mr. Boss Entered the
room. I entered the room near the
closet and demanded the men in there
to hold up their hands and go into the
next room. There were six or seven
men in the room. I pointed my pistol
at them and marched them in. Mr.
Ross, in the next room, -was pointing
his gun at the men, making them stand
up. Mr. Ross saw about locking tho
doors. I stood in the middle of the
room and kept advising them not to
lower their hands. They obeyed my
Instructions. Boss searched the men.
He got one gun. He put It on the
table. I put it In my pocket Boss
then searched the men for money and
diamonds. I saw him use the nippers.
He held one man's arm over a table
and clipped the ring off.

came back and ordered the men to go
Into the other room. When they had
done so he turned the thumb-latch. We
then took off our masks and went
