Denver, Dec. 18. — An Impulse to fire a Anal volley at the guards of 'the mint and federal reserve guards may have cost the youthful bandit who directed the $200,000 robbery his life, according to Peter Kiendin ger, one of the mint guards. “When the robbers turned into Civic Center, less than a half block from the mint the leader poised on the running board of the car, emp tied his revolver at the guards. Wear ing a light overcoat, his figure stood out clearly against the background of the drawn side curtains. A bul let frdtn my gun or one of the other mint guards struck him. The bandit swayed and fcollapsed. An automo bile door opened and he was pulled inside the car which sped on. I be lieve he was the man who shot Charles Linton. “The whole affair took less than a minute,” Kiendlnger said. “The robbers used a Buick touring car. ,The leader was in the seat with the driver. He carried a revolver. One of the men in the tonneau had a ri fle, the others sawed-olf shot-guns.” Miss Catherine Feist, a waitress in the Mint Restaurant, was em phatic thatsthe bandits within the car were assisted by two other men, who hid behind telephone poles as the car drew up alongside the Feder al Reserve Bank automobile and who joined in shooting at the guards as the leader leaped from the machine and shot Linton and then started to seize the money from the other guards. She is unable to tell the police whether the two helpers en tered the car before it sped away. Kiendlnger and Thomas Hurd, an other guard, declared that four men took part in the robbery, while Louis Albl, a chemist, insists that there were five men. He likewise declared he believed he would be able to i dentify th man who stood at the corner of Cherokee and Colfax ave nue and signaled the robbers. This man, he said, did not get into the bandit car after the robbery, but walked away. Central Lumber Co. Bemembers Employes. As a token of appreciation for loy ai ana conunuea service, me uenirai Lumber Company has arranged to present a Life Insurance Policy to each one of its employees who has been in its service for more than 6 months. These policies have been issued by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., of New York, and ranged in amounts from $500.00 to $2000.00, depending upon the length of service of the em ployee. These policies will become effective on December 24th, 1922, and will remain in effect so long as the employee continues in service. Mr. S. E. Moreton is president of the Central Lumber Co., S. E. More ton, jr., vice-president and Mr. M. J. Hale, secretary and treasurer. There will, doubtless, be a closer bond between employers and employ es than heretofore on account of the interests of the latter being made a part of the interests of the former. United in sympathy, in purpose, in a common interest, any business or ganization will stand on a firper foundation than when employes feel they are objects of exacting demands alone. The Central Lumber Co. has done a fine thing for its employes and for itself. Higdon and Warren. ' Dr. R. E. Higdon, senior member of the late medical firm of^Higdon & McLeod, wishes to announce that on acount of the death of Dr. N. A. McLeod the firm name has been changed. Dr. George T. Warren has become associated with Dr Hie-dnn in the practice of the profession of medi cine and surgery. The sewers of Clarksdale around the federal building were again fill ed with moonshine booze when fed eral prohibition officers dumped many gallons of “white mule” taken during tjie day’s raids. Two of these raids were made yesterday a bout twelve miles south of this city on the Sunflower j-iver and resulted in the arrest of two white men and four negroes. Crime on Increase in Mississippi. Jackson, Miss., Dec. 18. — That crime is somewhat on the increase in Mississippi is evidenced by fig ures taken from the supreme court criminal docket showing that 189 appeal cases have been brought be fore that tribunal durinar 1922. as 'against 149 for the year 1921. The crime of murder, however, seemB to be on the decrease. In 1921 |he supreme court reviewed 44 mur der and 10 manslaughter cases. Dur ing the current year it has handled 29 murder and 9 manslaughter cases. The heaviest increase is shown in liquor law violations, ' 27 appeals having been filed in 1921 as com pared with 61 for 1922. In some quraters this may be interpreted as an actual increase of liquor law vio lations, but as a matter of fact it merely 'denotes a more vigorous character of liquor law enforcement, and an awakening among county sheriffs and constables, that it is as much their duty as it is that of Fed eral officers to see that the statutes against liquor are enforced . There has been very little change In the record for miscellaneous crimes, such as robbery, burglary, assault, etc., the number of appeals for 1922 being 70 as compared with 68 for 1921. Of the 149 cases appealed in 1921 the supreme court affirmed 11 and reversed 31. Of the 189 apepais filed this year the court has affirmed 124, reversed 45, and has 20 pending. It Is interesting to note that the number of reversals in murder cases is identically the same, being eight for each of the years named. I Resolution of Tri-Countv Medical Society. Whereas, our Heavenly Father has seen fit to remove from our midst in these fields of labor our fellow worker, friend and comrade, Dr. N. A. McLeod, whose short stay in these fields has been fleeting yet fond to our recollection. We submit to the infinite wisdom of Him whose mercy a©d good ness.shall , be everlasting and eternal. 'While we see no more the pleasant face of our former con frere and enjoy no longer the pleas antness of his association and the wise counsel of his head and heart, we shall remember him for his inde fatigable labors among us and for his service in our community and so doing we will be encouraged on life’s rugged pathway to continue in our weakness to serve our fellow man in some such manner as he did. Therefore, Be it resolved that we extend to his family the band of sympathy and our heartfelt condo lence, and we trust that they may en dure and take new courage at the fond recollection of such a good and useful life. Be it further resolved, that this resolution be spread upon the min utes of our Tri-County Medical So ciety and a copy be sent to his wife and sister and a copy to the press. 0. N. Arrington, G. T.

Brookhaven friends of the strick en mother, Mrs. Lula Skeahn Allen, are sort-owing with her over the last days in the life of her beloved and only son, William G. Davis. That death comes often as a blessing in disguise will be more and more real ized as the days go by and death continues to claim its victims. Young Davis had suffered for some months with a nervous trouble and was,receiving treatment at a Hos pital in Jackson when relief came in the last long sleep. Friends and schoolmates in Brook haven remember the deceased as a genial, energetic, industrious young fellow, strong and vigorous physi cally and devoted to his .mother and relatives of the Penn families. He filled business positions of import ance with efficiency and gave prom ise of success in whatever he would undertake. The funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church at 3:30 this afternoon. Rev. A. F. Fogartie offi ciating. The Masonic Lodge will officiate at the grave of their brother who has fajlen by the way. Very tenderly sympathy goes out to those who can but mourn the ddath that shuts the door of hope in this life; but that directs the mind, torn by the impenetrable Providence toward the consolations that suggest “He doeth all things well” and "There remaineth a rest for the peo ple of God”. “Faith -cannot be unanswered.” Moved to Brookhaven. Rev. and Mrs. A. M. Broadfoot and children left here on Wednesday noon and motored over to Brookha ven, where they are to make their home. Mr. Broadfoot and his estimable family have been decided factors in the church and school life of the community, and the people of Pop larville give them up with genuine regret. The good wishes of the entire community will follow them to their new field of labor.—Poplarville Free Press. Missionary Teacher Killed by Shark. New York, Dec. 16.—Miss Kath erine W.
