I again arose to my feet with the determination i g''t away If possible, as resistance was more than useless.

While P. di Young' r w as examining Ihe contents of a drawer, with hi f.ue turned from me, though hi revolver. In hi outstretch! band, was pointing dlreitly at me. I thrmg'.t my opportuni ty for escaoe had come. West of tlt bank bur.dli.g. acros. on alley, und fronting on Mill Square, was Manning's hardware f-tore. th1 rear dour of which a nt liaht flnnloa lo the fear door of I the bank. I reasoned quickly that 1 j eon Id get Info Manning's store from j the rear, nr.d give the alarm, not know- j Ing of course what was transpiring cm ' tho street. Wilcox was on hU knee lotha paao between mand the door. I motioned to him with my hand to moTO a little forward that I nilicht pass, and I dashed past him and through the rear dior. which Boomed to be the best "opening for a young man" I had evf r seen. I sprung the blinds by throwing my weljrht axalnst them, turned to the left when outside, descending some Mi ps to tho alley, turned aaaln at the bottom of the ateps. aud was opposite tho rear door of Manning' store, when I was halted by a bullet. As I started to leave the bank. Pitta, whose rye seemed to bo everywhere, saw me, and with a whoop rushed after me. He was In front of the vault, operating with Hey w ood, and before he could know my intention. I wan out of ran go along the side of the vault, and making good time. As he turned tho corner of the vault, and came In sight of me. he shot, Th bullet whizzed past my ear, and through the blind? ahead of nu cut tins half the site of the ball from each blind. Then standing on the steps he shot tho second time, when I was about twenty feet away, hitting me In tho right shoulder, barely missing the Joint. The ball passed through the shoulder blado mid came out Just below tho collar brine, within half an inch of the suliolavlan artery, traversing about s!x Inches. The sensation of being shot was na though some one bad struck me a sharp blow with a piece of iMiard. There was a Jar and a sting as I felt the bullet going through the bones of my shoulder. It I all one nearly always falls when shot, no mat ter where the bullet hits him. I stumbled, but kept on my feet. Not knowing how badly 1 might be wound ed. Instead of entering Manning's I kept on west, through an open lot to JIM YOUNolH. noi:i;i:ns Water si reef and went snath one block to I ir. (Yon's residence, where I con cluded I would receive proper atten tion. When pi;t;, reuirriod from hi hae after me, he did not go behind the counters ng;;ln. About this lime some one of tin. gang outside rode up lo the door, :md shouted: "The game is up! Itelfer get out hoys; they're killing all our Men." poll Younger sprang back through i ho niton counter where he had entered. When James and Pitts re- i ! a.oil lleywood, the lalter go) on his ! eel and was supporting himself by leaning on a table in Hie middle of the i'ooin. when James climbed upon the : deyk between the cashier's desk and ! teller's window, and turning, reached j ha k as near Iloywood us possible, and I delibei;:ely shot down Into his head, killing him. T;u re was no provoeti- Hon whatever for the act. as he wet j odering no resist ani'e. und could not have defended hlinndf. after the crut 1 j Uetimcnt he had alriady received at the hands of the assassins. Polled Im j thiir undertaking, and with a fiend-; is!i p:ssion rag'iig In his heart. James , nrirdered poor lleywood In cold blood. After coiiimittirg this deed.

WlK'U die robbers crossed Ihe bridge to make tho attack. Mr. Allen, before referred to. happened to be standing j in tho front door or his store, next wiwt of Manning's, and facing Mill Sipiare. Again lie was Impressed vvllh the tho'tght that the men had evil de sign on the bank; going up the walk, h nine d (he corner on Division fitrer t as th men were dismounting. jn tni lowed and entered Ihe vestibule of the haul; as Miller dosed the door and stepped outside, where they met f.uc to f i.-e. Miller drew hi. revolver and. nitrintr nt Allen, said: "You tit! Hon i I you holler. Allen stood not on the orib-r of his going, but "got," and as he nenred the corner of the building leiernliig "hollered" lotid enough to he heard up and down the ir(ct n 1 lot k either way: "(let your jutm. hoys, they're robbing tin bank." As be ealbd, Miller shol. which vva al ruv t sinviltancrjii w ith the aupear.inie of the other four robbers, who pi t their I orsea lo n run and commenced shoot ing and yelliiiT like savages. Dr. vv iiccicr, in a drug More across the street, heard Allen call and rev,plM,(. cd nobly. He remembered hav Ing si-en a rllle the day before In the Dumpier j l.od. on the corner Indow and across t the Ktreet from Ihe bank building, and Immediately went by th alley at the rear of the buildings on that tidn of the atreet to "get the gun." As Allen passed Manning's store on bta way to his own. he told the latter what was up, und M.uinlug lost no 1 1 iue In Rot ting a few cartridges and a Kcmlngtou rifle, with whlih he did good o;vlce. lte-enterlng hi own store, Allen gave the alarm to his clerks, aud one of them. Mr. Joaepli Hyde, picked up a loaded shotgun and ruUcd up to the corner about the time Clel. Miller had remounted hi horse. He was directly in front of tho bank, and as he turned toward Hyde the litter let him have the full charge of bird shot in the face, knocking him off his horse, but not In juring biiu seriously. Hyde then re tired; Miller again got cm his horse: but by this time Dr. Wheeler had se cured the rltle, and from an open win dow In the second story of the hotel "drew a bead" on Miller and shot him dead, severing the subclavian artery, the ball entering precisely the name part of his body that PUts bullet came O'lt of mine. The robbers were riding up and down Division street shooting and veil ing everybody to keep off the street. An innocent Swede came onto Division street from tho next drect south of the bank and. not understanding the unn mand lo "get olT the strft," wa shot through the head thy Cole Younger, it is said), from Ihe effects of whieh he died u few days afterwards. As Manning came to the corner, which was the battle's center, he saw a liorcsman (Mill Styles) dashing down Ihe street from the south nearly a block away. Me took quick but accurate aim, and pulled the trigger. The imseuger from Manning's rifle entered Style's heart and ho fell from bis horse a corpse. At this tltue the warning was given the robbers In the bank by those out side. On leaving the bank James and Pitts regained their horses and took part In the liatile up and down the street. There was no horse at hand for Hob Younger, hence he ran along tho side of the building and under the stairs leading to the second story. Manning held a position directly in front of the stairs, where he stood without any protection, calmly loading nd hrinir. from the time he tool; part in the ingagenient till the finish. He and Hob played a desperate game of "hide and si i k" from their respective position. Mob would reach his arm around from beneath the stairs to get a shot at Manning, not d u-itig to ex pose his body, when M. would fall back step or two. Then Manning would poke l,!s gun iiio.tnd the edge of the staiis and Mob would dodge back lo hi shelter. The la I It r would occasionally shoo: through the stairs, hoping to hit Manning, bat no damage was done In Ibis manner ecept to the o lairs. While they were engaged in this pastime Dr. Wheeler w;i not idle. Looking from the hold window Yommer vva. marly concealed hem a Hi the stairs, but. watching his opportunity, as Mob ex tended his arm, Wluil. ;- shot, the bul let taking I'fe. t in YoungerV elbow mil smashing his arm all to piece;. One of the gang came down th" street hanging to the side of his horse--In dian fashion that he m'ght get a shot it Manning without exposing himadf. Manning was on 1'Im guard and coolly awaited the approach of his foe. As Ihe man did not exhibit himself Mantling shot and killed the horse, when the rider hut-lily seenrul and mounted the horse of one of his fellow companions. t Iea?t one other robber way wound ed by Manning, and a second horse killed, I In lieve. Manning was a quiet, unassuming citizen, and th hist man a stranger would select to act the part he did that day. He certainly dis played true couraye ami was "the man for the emergency." Standing on the opt n corner he repeatedly loaded and fired, v illi telling effect, while the bul lets from the attacking party fell round him thick and fat. It is said there must have bun a many as thirty shots find at Manning, none of which took effect. Many bullet wars were found in the stairs and about the cor ner where Manning so fearlessly stood. While it Is claimed by admirers of highwaymen that they are "dead shots" and brave, this incident shows that ordinary people are just jis good niarhtt liion. and as brave, vhn the advan tages are equal. Pules the highway man can take his victim at a disadvan tage he does not make an at tack. During the fracas a merchant or clerk would occasionally appear at a door end shoot at some of the gang, which attentions were promptly ret Iprocati d, a.; the broken windows bore evidence, l.x-l'ollc en.an Ilobbs. lieing on tho s:ret. but nr.L on duty, ar.d 'en:o:e qiiently not armed, grasped the sit uation and shouted; "Hive 'eni stones boys!" and displayed his well-known courage by nciually throwing stones at the ile: -perndoes.
