Assault on a Voniaii Terribly Iieaten
with a Coupling-Fin for S3 One Ma
Chicaco, Xov. 29. Details of police are
iicouring the country and suburbs south
west of the city for two masked highway
men who are making the residents of Riv
erside, Iierwin, Hawthorne, Lyons and
Clyde feel very uncomfortable. The police
believe that the mounted bandit who kept
Lake View in a state of terror for several
days has been joined by a confederate and
transferred the seat of his operations.
William Kelly and Charles Thompson
were the first to come jn contact with the
two masked men. They were driving tow
ard the city from lliverside on Onden av
enue and when near a lonely spot the two
men jumped from a clump of bushes and
at the point of revolvers relieved Kelly
and Thompson of their money, and taking
possession of their team and buggy, valued
at (500, drove away.
They "Hold Vp" One of the "Foree."
C A. Bader. who lives at Berwin and is
employed with Carson, Pirie, Scott &
Co., was the next to meet the two men, bnt
Mr. Bader had but 40 cents in his posses
sion, and he willingly handed this to one of
the robbers. John Keefe, a Cicero police
man, also had the pleasure of meeting the
men. He was attired in his official uniform,
and was on duty when the bold men con
fronted him with two revolvers and de
manded that he turn out all his valuables.
Fifteen cents and a revolver was all the
Cicero oflicial could donate. Fred Sellers
and Fred Crow, both residents of Riverside,
were also victims of the robbers. They
were driving south on Ogden avenue when
a masked man jumped from behind a tree,
and catching the bridle of the horse com
manded t he two men to get out, which they
did at the point of a revolver. The robber
then took possession of the vehicle and

kiss, and armed with shotguns, was or
ganized and started ic pursuit, bnt found
no trace of the robber. The gift of ubi
quity is also, it appears, possessed bv this
modern Dick Turpin. Yesterday he led
Captain Schaack and his merry men in blue
a gleeful chase between Calvary cemetery
and Evanston. The "solitary horseman"
of James, transplanted from the days of
knight errantry to the prosaic atmostphere
of the Nineteenth century, had been seen in
that neighborhood. The police found a
buggy and harness in a lield near Win
netka, and a livery stable-keeper identified
the rig as the remains of one which he had
hired to Fred Spahr Saturday afternoou.
Spahr Was Oat for Fan.
Inspector Schaack says this young man
was only out for fun. Colonel Davidson,
superintendent of the Highland Park Mili
tary academy, where young Spahr was a
student, said: "Friday morning Freddy
Spahr, Donald Delight, son of the late Tony
Delight, and James Nettleton, whose ages
are respectively 13, 14 and 15 years, left the
academy. Delight and Net tleton returned
to the school early iu. the forenoon Satur
day. The boys said they had left Spahr at
Winnetka early Saturday morning. Xet
tleton, being told by the students that
horse stealing was a state's prison offence,
became frightened and went to Chicago
early in the evening. I think that Spahr
was morally and mentally unbalanced.''
Captured a Kalonn Robber.
One of the gang of robbers that held up
two south side saloons Sunday night was
captured last evening. At S:.0 o'clock
three masked men entered the shoe store
of Max Eisenberg, 2o08 State street, and
while one of them covered the proprietcr
with a revolver the othpr two attempted to
rob the cash drawer. Officer Stephens, who
was across the street, heard Kiseuherg's
cries for help and came running to the
store, and grappled with one of the rob
bers, George Walters. In the excitement
which ensued the other two made good
their escape. Walters was identified by
Yoitze and Campliell, saloon-keepers, as
one ofthe men who held tip their places
ANOTHER DASTARDLY CRIME.
A Woman Nearly Beaten to Death with a
Another foul crime was discovered in this
city yesterday morning, although it was
committed Friday night last. Mrs. Laura
Miller, a widow of about 35 years of age,
keeps a cigar store at 128 State street.
Last week she employed a man who is only
known as "George" or "Joe" to do some
papering for her. He worked two days,
and daring that time came to the conclu
sion that Mrs. Miller had a large sum of
money concealed about the house. Last
Friday night, just after Mrs. Miller had
closed up her store, the man entered her
living rooms by means of the rear door and
demanded he money. He carried an iron
coupling pin, and when Mrs. Miller toM
him that she didn't have any money in the
house he struck her on the head with the
Fought Desperately for Life.
The woman fought for her life, and the
robber rained blow after blow upon her
head, face and shoulders, until she fell to
the floor unconscious. The man then se
cured (3, all the money he could find, and
made his escape. Next morning the store
was not opened and the neighbors won
dered, but when repeated attempts to gain
admission hud failed during Saturday
and Sunday, the mntter was reported to
the police station. Officers were sent to in
vestigate and forced their way into the
house, Iu the rear room, seated in a rock
ing chair, they found Mrs. Miller. Her
head was beaten almost to a jelly, her eyes
were both closed and . her face and neck
were covered with cuts and bruises.
Everything- Covered with Blood.
The walls, floor and furniture were cov
ered with blood, and several pieces of fur
niture were broken, showing how fierce the
struggle had been. On the floor lay the
coupling-pin with which the woman had
iiiU. beaten, and it was stained with, her
VKtxn ivrra. miner was uname to see ana
scarcely able to speak. She said she did
not know how long she was unconscious
after her assailant left her, but aftejf com
ing to she wes loo weak to notify any one,
and had remained alone without food un
til found by the officer.
Will Probably Recover.
A doctor was summoned who found be
sides the bruises made with the coupling
iu several incisions, that must have been
r..wie .-ith a knife. She is seriously hurt,
but will probably recover, although very
much disfigured. The po) ice force is look

At the evening session it was resolved
that the present manner of measurement
was inequitable to both parties, and that
y was a difficulty capable of adjustment,
r hi.-h adjustment is as follows: "That the
lower case alphabet of all faces of body type
shall not measure less than fifteen lower
case m's of its own face; that the thirteen
letters of the alphabet most frequently
used c, d, e, i, s. m, n, h, o, u, t, a and r
shall equal the length of the remaining
