, J .A. Anderson, grocer. HJR West
Broadway, was held up nnd robbed In
his sloro Inst night by two unmasked
men, who secured more than 11 W) In cash
and somo notes; nil believed to bo nego
tiable, but for small amounts, and made
their enratpo. . ..r
Tho crime was committed, at 7 o'clo'ck,
when Mr. AndarAon fur thn moment was
nlono In theSiloro arid In the rear part
of, tho room. Tho nwn entered and stood
for a moment wnrmlng their hands at
tho slovo near, whero . ho wA standing.
An Instant later both advanced to the
counter a'nd thrust rovolvcrs In Ander
son's face, coupled with tho command to
throw up fifs hands. He Instantly obeyed
and while o((f. of tho bandits kept him
covered with a gun tho other went to. the-
cash register and took out the money It
Just taken 1130 from tho register and had
It lit a pooketbook In Ills trousem pocket.
He realized that any attempt to get It
out might draw a shot from tho thug In
front of him and stood hoping they woutd
bo content wjlhtho loot' from llm reglsi
tor and Icavo without searching him.
Tho hope wns lualn. The.thugH started
to go, but stopped when. one "remarked,
"Let's seo what he's got on him." The
big pockctbook was easily discovered,
and when ., they opened It and saw the
money .the "appeared to have a ploluii
uraJle 'shook. They started to take out
the money, but after examining some
of the checks It contained one of them
(dipped the wallet In his pocket and both
backed 'from the store, .keeping their ro
volvcrs pointed at Anderson until they
had passed through tho door and
Anderson neglected to go to the door
and seo which way they went, but rushed
to tho tolcphono anL. reported tho rob
bery to Oio police. ,(
The light sijowji fully on the faces of
the men and Anderson waa able to glvo
tho officers rin excellent description.
Both wcro young men npY.oyer 28 and
wore strangers to Anderson.' '"Pin. fact
that they made no attempt at hiding tholr
faces leads to the conviction that they
wore not local thugs. The Illinois Cen
tral and Northwestern pasoenger sta
tions and railroad yards are close to tho
store and the mon coujd easily find a safe
hiding placo until they got out of town.
Tho nleht detective force made a vain
search for tbom lost night.
