Eourtd, Gagged and Robbed. Com
pelled at the muzzle of a revolver to
refrain from calling for help or making
the least resistance. S. H. Kauffman
was bound hand and foot, gagged and
blindfolded and tossed helpless upoa
a bd while his home w;is ransacked
by robbers Saturday forenoon. The
man who was thus maltreated is TS
years of age. and tho shock to his sys
tem is serious. He was found and re
leased by his son. James Kauffman.
whdi the lata r returned from town
about noon. The Kauffman home is
on Tangier's lane which parallels the
.Mile Track property at about a quar
ter of a milt. to the south. The fathei
and son live alone, keeping bachelor's
hall. Saturday morning about 9
o'clock the son left home to come to
town on business, the aged father re
maining tntirely alone at the house.
Seen atror the young man's depaiture,
so soon in facuas to lend strength to
the belief that his departure had been
watched, a tall young stranger entered
the house and engaged the elder Kauff
man in conversation. At peace with
all the world, and not in the least bit
suspicious, the old gentleman was
somewhat shocked to find himself look
ing down the muzzle of a revolver and
strenly ordered to keep quiet. But he
retained sufficient presence of mind to
tell the man with the gun to put it
down, as he would make- no resistance.
The pleasant voiced young man drew
out a handkerchief and bound it over
the old man's mouth. Then he tied
another around his eyes. Taking a
sheet from the bed in the adjoining
room the robber tore it into strips and
with the linen bound the old man's
wrists behind his back and tied his
ankles together. Then he lifted the
helpless man and tossed him upon the
bed. The using of sheets instead of
rope probably saved the victim from
suffering. After rendering his victim
helpless the robber whistled and was
evidently joined by a companion. The
old man was starched and a key to
the family deed box was found. The
box was located and ransacked, and
then the robbers made away with the
plunder. They secured five $5 gold
pieces, a $. bill, and a bank book on
the Davenport Savings bank. It is pos
sible that something else was taken,
but thus far nothing else has been
missed. It was nearly noon when
James Kauffman reached his home. He
noticed something amiss as soon as he
entered the house, for on the lounge
was a piece of rope and the room had
the appearance of having been ransack
ed. Then a groan from the bedroom
attracted his attention and he hurried
in to find his father bound and gagged
upon the bed.
