LIKE JESSEJAMES. .Missouri Bank Robbed In-Broad Daylight, ; By Seven Men Armed With Winchesters. FOUR CITIZENS SHOT. The Bobbers Got Four Thousand Dollars. Noei,, Ma, May 11. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon seven men armed with Winchesters and revolvers rode into Southwest City, Mo., and robbed the bank, petting1 all the money the bank contained, between $3,000 and $4,000. They evidently came from the Territory and were experts, as they did the job in a very business like manner. Two of them were sta tioned on the outside and three en tered the bank with a sack and two others guarded the horses. About 100 shots were fired by the robbers and four of the best citizens were badly wounded. J. C. Seabourn and O. L. Seabourn were both shot through the groin; Mart Pembree, leg broken by a bullet; S. F. Melton, United States marshal, received a fiesh wound in the leg. The robbers were about ten minutes going1 through the bank, afterward mounted their horses and started for the na tion at full speed. As they were leaving the outskirts some one fired several shots at them, killing a horse and wounding a rob ber, but it is not known how badly he was hurt. He immediately secured another horse from a farmer who was passing1 and followed his pals. No resistance was offered by the citizens. The wounded men were shot while standing on the sidewalk. A posse was made up and have started in pursuit. But the robbers have a good start and will likely get away. Tbe First Paragraph of the Schedule Reached Patton 8 worn In. Washixgto.v, May 11.
