ROBBED OF $20,000
Wife of Standard Oil Magnate Had
Valuables in Chatelaine.
Nrwin.it. R. I., Sept. 13.?T.Vord was
N. i.t k that a robbery
by which Mrs ?. M. Flaglor, of that
City, toll a ? Ita!.daino bag containins
money and j??wt>ls aggregating several
thousand dollars in value, at Newport,
was beiti? investigated by detectives.
Th?? date of the robbery was not given.
Ills. Flag 1er has not been here
since tlie middle of August it is thought
It must have occurred at that time.
Mrs. Flaglor was the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. Julian T. Davies while here.
The poli.e say that they had no re?
port of the robbery of Mrs. Flagler.
The messages from Now York say that
the chatelaine bag contained $6000 in
cash, a draft for $10,000 and jewels
valued at $|ooo.
All Bigna indicate that Mrs. Flagler
was robbe?! by the Raffles who has
preyed upon Newport society leaders
all summer, and it is whispered that
the thief is a rich young woman who
is a confirmed kleptomaniac. For the
sake of her family, the police say,
every ono of the victims has shielded
her upon the return of the stolen gems.
Mrs. Flayjer attended a lawn fete,
and while there her gold chain chate?
laine was stolen from her belt.
I The hag contained five $1000 bills,
eight $100 hills, about $200 in smaller
bills, a draft on New York for $10,000,
and a long neck chain set with 30 sap?
phires and diamonds, valued at $4000.
| Mrs. Flagler had worn the neck chain
, on leaving her rooms, but it caught on
I the carriage door and broke. Then she
! placed it in the chatelaine.
Mrs. Flagler wore the ?chatelaine sus
! pended from her belt by a hook which
could have been easily slipped out.
She ate luncheon at a table on the
lawn, and afterward mingled with a
crowd of equally fashionably dressed
mon and women at the booths where
chancos were sold in lotteries for the
raffio of vations goods, l?eing a large
patron of < harity, for whi< h tho lawn
f??t<? was Bytvea, Mrs. Flagler bought
many chames, paying for tliom each
She had pur? based a score or Bjpors
of tii k?ts, when she reached for her
satani to nay for still more purchases.
To her horror, she discovered that her
bag was gone.
It is possible that it may have boon
pulled off in jostling with the crowd,
but if it was it was not found. Who?

The chief aim of the Bible Training
School is to give young colored men
and women a comprehensive knowledge
of tlie entir?? English Bible and to im?
plant in their hearts a noble ambition
to dedicate th?-ir lives to the elevation
anil Christianization of their people.
The students are re?iuirid to d?> mis
sionary work in the various churches
and Sunday Schools near th?? Institution
in this way they have been very help?
ful to the neighboring communities.
The teaming of tin? Bible School is
wholly undenominational, the intcn
tion being not, to oppose or antagonize
any theok gical work now being done,
but rather to assist all d?nominations.
Phelps Hall, the building in which
the school 'is taught, was given by a
generous New York friend. It is
traine structure three stoiies high, con?
taining a chattel, library, reading room,
and the ??Hice of the Dean, with three
recitation rooms; besides forty rooms
for dormitory purposes.
Rev. Edgar J. Peuney is the Dean.
He is assisted by Rev. E. P. Johnson
and Rev. J. H. Cadson. Rt. Rev. Ceo.
W. Clinton, of Charlotte, N. C, and
Dr. H. T. Jobuson, of Philadelphia. Pa.
deliver a regular course of lectures dar?
ing the term. Rev. Moses Jackson, of
the Presbyterian Church, Chicago, de?
livered a special t-ourse of lectures dur?
ing the past term.
The teaching is free. The cost of
board, including furnished room, light,
fuel, washing, etc., is 98.50 per month.
Students will be given au opportuni?
ty to work out from $1.50 to $3.00 of
this amont, thus leaving only from
$5.50 to $7.00 to be paid in cash.
In some cases arrangements may be
made so that students may work out
the whole amount. Lack of means
need debar none.
