Tata Several Shots Fired, at the Train
as It Passes.
Cleveland, Aug. 8. Lake Shore ex
press train No. 13, arriving frJm tbe west.
puffed Into tbe Union station after bavins
enjoyed a most thrilling experience on tbe
plain, of Indiana. An attempt was made
to hold up the train at Keasler, lud., upon
the identical spot that the train wa. held
np last fall. Tbe train was just approach
ing a split switch at Kessler when tlie en
gineer noticed that the switch was turned
so as to run the traiu on tbe siding. A
tug obstruction of ties and lumber was
piled upon the siding a few rods ahead of
his engine. The ob .ti action did not ap
pear to be impassah'.Q and tbe engineer
put on all tbe steam and dashed through,
the pile, passing an fely on to tbe main
track through tbe split switch at a high
rate ox speed.
Fired Several Shata.
As the train passed tbe obstruction tbe
engineer noticed a group of masked men
anu as the engine cleared the track of all
obstructions the would-be highwaymen
fired several shots into the train, none of
which, however, took effect. The United
States express car was attached to tbe
train and had on board a large amount of
money. It is thought that this was
known to the desperadoes wbo attempted
to hold up tbe train. Their disappoint
ment in carrying out tbeir plan, of stop
ping the train by piling obstructions
upon tbe track was evinced in their firing
of shots when tbey saw that their plans
hnd been frustrated by tbe boldness of
the engineer in dashing through the beau
of ties upon the track.
The EobbM-jr at a Tear Ago.
It was almost a year ago that at Kess
ler'. siding seven men held tip the same
fnst express on the Lake Shore road. In
this case tbe men threw the switch at
Kesslcr's, aud when the train came to a
stop two gangs boarded it. Oue gang en
tered tbe express car, blew open the safe
with dynamite, aud secured plunder esti
mated in tbe neighborhood of $150,003 in
mouey, jewelry, and negotiable paper.
The other gan compelled the engineer
to pull out slowly toward Kendallville,
win re their horse, were tethered near the
edge of the woods. Arriving at this place,
tbey jumped off the train with a parting
injunction to tbe crew not to follow. Tbey
mounted their horses and escaped in tbe
darkness, leaving no clew.

While there are many sectious where

time is more encouraging. On the bot
toms this crop is holding its own and will
yield well generally. Chiuch bugs are
