BANDIT WITH A HEART
I Even a burgar has a conscicnce
when it comes to holding ap a sold

ardizing his return to camp and
subsequent danger of court-martial
for non-appcarrnc\ This was
pi'oven when Harry Estabro&k en.
countered a masked bandit as he
stepped foom a taxi to board a train
at Springfield, HI., for a return trip
to camp. Estabrock. a soldier, tx
plainal his predicament to the burg
Jar, who without hesitation, let him
go and "held up the taxi driver in
stead.
The above will recall to the minds
of a iW :itill living, while not co
tempora?r.eous with Robert T. Kare,
incidents in the carcer of this foot
pad who operated in this .section of
the country nearly one hundred
years ago. Hare was a Marylanier

J. P. STRONG
Prominent' Real Estate Broker ^of
Massachusetts
Boston, Aug. 25.??ays, "I have been
in the real estate brokerage business
for many years. I have suffered with
lois of'tileep, indigestion and nervous
ness, but since taking Argo-Phospbate
I sleep better and eat without fear of
distress, ana can feel a great change
in my system."
Thei-e is nothing in medical icience

treatment of indigestion, rheumatism,
nervousness, kidney and liver ills. Sold

Store.
life was published in book form, and
jt formed part of the literary matter
in numbers of homes in days of
yore. The book was upor. the
shelves of dealers in Alexandria at
the' time the war between th-i statc-s
was precipitated. "Old , Robber
Hare" was the bugaboo of many a
nervous child in the dim past.
Hare made an extended confes
sion before he paid the penally of
his .crimes upon the gallows. Among
his other instincts was his t,l;ought
fuSness wheat ihn the act of forcing
passengers in stage coaches to de
liver up their valuables. He would
return watches, rings, etc., when
told they were gifts from deceased
relatives, and would never open a
letter with a black seal when ho
found such a missive in a mail bag.
He always saw that his victims had
enough money in their possession to
reach their objectives
