STORIES of FAMOUS CRIMES By HENRY C. TERRY THE WELLS-FARGO MILLION DOL LAR EXPRESB ROBBERY. AD the plot to rob the Red Star express on the Erie at Port Jervis, Now York, some twenty years ago suc ceeded, it would have been the greatest haul ever made in a train hold-up. H That it did not succeed Is duo to the cunning and faithfulness of an old em ploye. A cool million in gold was the' stake played for and so bold wero the men who planned to take It that the detective assigned to the case refused to believe that the attempt actually would be made. The story, as told by the principal actors on each side, Is a splendid illustration of the fact that no matter how carefully a crime is planned the criminal cannot take into account all the details, the fail ure of only one of which will lead to detection. 808 FUREY’S STORY. “The touch-ofT on the Red Star Ex press? Do I recall it? Well I should smile. That was one of the biggest and neatest jobs ever put up in New York. It was a hair-raiser from start to finish. A Job like that ought to hare been worth a million. It would have been but for one of the unex pected things that come around to crooks as well as to other people. I tumbled on the business by acci dent one afternoon as I was going from Washington to New York. I was sitting in the smoker puffing away on a bit of Havana, when a couple of gents dropped in and took the seat in front. I did not pay any attention to them until I overheard them talking about money bags and gold coin. I picked up from their conversation that they were agents for an express com pany that had a contract for hauling money for the government, and had charge of the stuff while it was in transit from Washington to the mint in Philadelphia or to other eastern cit ies. This of itself did not specially in terest me, but when I heard them talk about how carelessly the coin was handled by the agents east of Chi cago, a territory in which the cars were believed to be perfectly safe, I began thinking a bit. Before I reach ed New York I had made up my mind to pick up a few additional facts on this subject. If it turned out as rosy as these fellows Indicated I would teach some of them a lesson In the art of performing their duty. I learn ed from them incidentally that the Red Star Express, on the Erie, car ried more money than any other com pany, and that the agents guarded $1,000,000 about as closely as the or dinary citizen would a nickel. I gave these citizens a silent vote of thanks when we parted. Imme diately afterward I began an official investigation. I had learned the trade of machinist when I was a young fel low, so the first thing I did was to make application for a Job in the Erie railroad repair shops in Jersey City. While working on the car I got ac quainted with Pop Thompson. He was called Pop because of his general good nature, and not because he was old. I made myself as friendly with him as I could. I found out where he lived in Lafayette, N. Y., a little station up the line a ways. I hired a room in a boarding bouse near him. We met very often, and he seemed to take a fancy to me. After a while he talk ed quite freely about his business, though it was always about trips that he had made and never about trips that he was going to take. When I got this far into the scheme I called in Johnny Dobbs, Big Jim Brady, Walt, Herrick and Pete Dur and, four of the wisest crooks that ever lived, and put them onto Pop and his car, with the idea that one of them would stick to him every day and go away with him on every trip to get the run of the business. In this way Johnny Dobbs picked up in Chicago that Pop had a weak side. In short, he was leading a double life. Nothing could have suited me better, for that gave me a chance to pull him into the traces. There was no longer any use-of my working in the shop, so I quit and went to Chicago to wait for Pop to turn up. It was some weeks before he landed there, but I fixed it so that I would meet him coming out of his home No. 2 in Chicago, which gave me a chance to call him down. He was not as much surprised as I thought he would be, and it was not until he got ready to return home that he suggested that it would be well to keep quiet what I had seen. I promised never to mention it, and returned with Pop. It was the first show that I had to throw out any feelers. I gently, rather playfully, hinted that Pop was carrying a large amount of money for other people, and it was a wonder to me that none of it had ever stuck to his fingers. Pop manifested more Interest in this talk than I had ever hoped for. He said he wns tired of working for nothing. He hinted that if I could suggest any plan to make a big roll of money he was willing to listen. Then I gave him the Idea, cold and plain, of hitting a rap at the Red Star car. Pop drank in all that I said like a very thirsty man, agreed to meet me the next day and give me his views. He was on deck at the appointed time, and promised to furnish me with the information about the car and Its load of coin, if I would do the rest of the work and fix it up so nothing would point to him. This seemed all right. If the thing was pulled off he could get his share t>f the boodle and quit bis Job when he felt like it.

Nelson willing to make the dust, but had been trained so long on the honest line that he could not become a full-fledged thief at a jump. Pop went along In the regular way, as it was arranged that we were not going to make the strike until the fall shipment of gold to Chicago. The time was left to Pop to uelect. We got the tip on Monday, that on the following Wednesday night the Red Star car would go out from the Erie depot with the big load of shiny met al. We fixed up everything to carry out our trick. I had a long talk with Pop. He was so inquisitive about all the details of robbery, and insisted up on knowing everything that we were going to do before hand, that I became suspicious of him. One of the gang had been on his track every day without his knowl edge, and had never seen or heard anything wrong, so I thought maybe I waa not fair with Pop to doubt him. After thinking it all over I concluded that the safest way to deal with Pop would be to fool him by giving him a ghost story about the details. I told him the train would be flagged about five miles west of Port Jervis and tbe safes dumped from the car. A wagon would be In readinese to take the safes. They would then be blown open on tbe road. The plan was to bury the gold In a safe place and cart away only the greenbacks. Wednesday night came. The car pulled out of the depot with Pop on ,the first watch and his partner in the sleeper. The gang were all In the smoker. After we got In motion Pop let us into the car. We started at once on the big safe and had no trou ble getting into It. Pop, of course, did not know the combination. We got out the small safes—there were four of them —and they were very heavy. Pop said the cargo was near ly all gold and the prospect was very bright. A few miles this side of Port Jer-‘ vis, at a place agreed upon, and about ten miles from where Pop had been given to understand that the robbery would take place, I gave the signal. We forced the door of the car and dumped the safes while we were go ing at full speed. About a quarter of a mile beyond, a red light w-as waved in front of the engine. The train stopped. We Jumped when the train slacked up, and the red light dis appeared. We put Pop to sleep in the car with a tap on the head and closed the door, so that nothing waa known of the robbery until the train reached Port Jervis. Then we had a hustle for fair.” DETECTIVE M’QUILLAN’S STORY. I was sitting in my office late one afternoon when a messenger called and said that a detective was wanted at the office of Wells, Fargo & Co. for special business. When I got to the express office I was told what seemed to me to be a very fishy story about an attack that was going to be made upon the Red Star money car. The tip that the robbery was going to come off had been given to the company by Ike Thompson, who went by the name of “Pop,” one of the best agents in the express car service, but I thought that there must be a mistake in it somewhere. Ills story was that while lie was in Chicago on one of the regular trips he went to the house of his sister-in-law, and when he left be was accosted by a fellow whom he had known In Jersey City as Luke Sanderson, one of the work men in the Erie Railroad shops. In some way or other Sanderson had got the Idea that the woman Thomp son had called upon was his wife. San derson knew that Thompson was mar ried and had a family in Lafayette. N. Y., and he took pains to suggest to Thompson that It would go very hard with him If the company should learn that he was not living on the level, as he was earning hardly enough money legitimately to run two homes. Thompson did not stumble'’ to what Sanderson was driving at until they were on the way back to Jersey City, going with an empty money car, when Sanderson suggested that there was an easier way to make a fortune than working for it Thompson is a very foxy fellow, and determined to lead Sanderson on with the belief that he was ready to go into anything that would pay big money, and he managed his part of the affair so well that Sanderson never dropped to the fact that he was being jollied. I was not sent for until several days or weeks afterward. aB Thompson and the officials were not any too anxious to divide the honors in the case, as success made a big thing for all the company’s employes who figur ed in the case. Thompson had several Interviews with Sanderson, and from what he Baid had got him worked up to a high pitch over the robbery anti the gang were anxious to spring the trick. I listened to the tale, and was very skeptical. I did not believe that any top-notch crooks would have gone Into such a scheme wlt/t Thompson without first being assured that there was no possible chance of a throw-down. I asked for a sight of the crook, to see if I knew hint. A meeting was ar ranged, at which I was present, and when I got my peepers on the bold Sanderson my old heart gave a thump, for I recognized him at a glance as Bob Furey, a crook on both sides of the ocean In some first-class Jobs. Thompson was to figure only as a second fiddle in the transaction, and was to get an even share In the swag with the others when the money was divided. It was not necessary for him to have a knowledge of the details of the plans which Furey had put un to work off the money bagL.i he’ g > s wanted a big boodle, and so long as we were on to their game I suggested that we should not give the gang the tip until there wns really a big load of dust on board the express car, just to givo the gang the laugh when they got the throw-down for losing such a dandy bundle. Tbe day was finally set for the rob bery. Thompson succeeded In getting all the details, so that It made the work dead easy on paper. The sig nal to hold up the train. It was ar ranged, would be given after Fort Jervis on the Erie railroad, which would be the signal for us to do our little act and la* d the gang. The train with the Red Star car was booked to leave the Erie depot at 6 o'clock In tlfe evening, and in the morning I sent four men to Port Jervis to take up a position where the red light was to be given at night. I got a telegram that they had luuded all right und in tho evening, when the train pulled out of the depot. I was aboard with six lusty fellows, who would rather fight than eat. I saw Thompson before tho train started but did not speak to him. He indicated by a nod of the head that their gang were on board the train in tho front cars, und everything looked rosy. The train pulled out on time, and we went humping along at a live ly rate, ns we were on the fast ex press. I had given Instructions to my men what to dp when we got to the holding-up place, I knew every foot of the ground on the Erie, and when we got within a few miles of Port Jervis I began to feel juet ‘a little bit nervous. While 1 was running all the details of ihe at tack over In my mind the train slow ly pulled up, but did not come to a full stop. I looked out of the win dow, but did not see anything. In a moment we were pushing up the bill to Port Jervis at full speed. When we pulled up at the little depot I jumped off the car to take a final look at things, and as I passed the Red Star car I heard a moan. I listened and It was repeated several times. I could not understand It, but 1 felt that some thing had gone wrong. I did not want to make a foolish break of any kind, so I first went to the engineer and asked him what be had stopped for before reaching Port Jervis. He said that he saw a red light swinging on the track, and slowed up. The light had disappeared before he got to It, and he could not understand It. 1 knew the meaning of It, and saw the game in a second. The gang had fooled Thompson by giving him a wrong description of what was going to be done. This was verified when I reached the Red Star car. The lock had been broken off, and Inside the car was Thompson, lying on his back well done up. He was partly conscious, and knew enough to tell that the thieves had fooled him, and had dumped the safes on the track about three miles east of Port Jervis. They had Jumped off the train when it slowed. But if Thompson had been fooled he had fooled the gang also, for he had flung the kit of tools which was to be used to open the safes off the car, and it was dollars to doughnuts they would not be able to find them. I got an engine at the depot, and In ten minutes I was on the way back with my men. Before reaching the place I noticed lanterns flashing along the track, and I ordered the engineer to run past the lights a half mile or so before slowing up. As we went by the spot I saw the gang at work carrying the safes to a w’agon. We stopped nfter turning a curve afcd started back on foot. The thieves, I concluded, had dis covered the loss of the tools, and In stead of trying to open the safes had decided to carry them away and break them up at their leisure. When we got back to the place the gang were about ready to move and I ordered my men to wait until they all got Into the wagon before making the attack. We stood in the shadow of the trees on tbe roadside until the wagon came up, and then I gave the signal. One man seized the horse’s head and turned him into a fence, and the rest of us cov9red the gang with guns. Two of the gang Jumped and were shot. The others threw up their hands. We took the whole outfit to Port Jervis, and W'alt. Herrick died on the way. Durand was shot in the chest, but recovered In time for the trial. With the conviction of Johnny Dobbs, Jim Brady, Bob Furey and Pete Dur and one of the most notorious gangs of safe breakers was broken up. Tripoli Women at Home. There is a vivid picture of home life in Tripoli in Mrs. Mabel Loomis Todd’s recent volume: “Another day I went to a house of quite different so cial order, where a poor woman with a crooked spine had asked to see the foreigner. She was sewing at a little machine low on the floor, turned by hand, like those used by Malajs, her knees higher than her head—but that was apparently a favorite attitude of both sey.es. ‘‘Flat on the floor lay an old woman sound asleep, merely a neighbor In for a while to take surprising means of promoting social hilarity. But she wore a good deal of Jewelry, was ar tistically tattooed and, upon waking, showed strong, short white teeth In a friendly smile “The poor little deformed woman seemed pathetically glad to see us and began to talk at orfce of the coming eclipse, of her fear that It might in jure her and that she should not dare go to the roof to see It; also asking me to use my influence to render It as harmless as possible.” Paradoxical. “Jim certtalnly acted In a contrary way when he found out that Clarissa’s beauty he was so proud of, was half paint and powder.” “What did he do?” “Why, declared he was put out when he found he had been taken In.” A Great Discovery. “I tell you we live In an age of progress.” “How now?” “Now some sharp has discovered that you kin shake fleas off a dog with a vacuum cleaner.”— Courier-Journal CONSTITUTIONS MIGHTY BLOW WON A HAT VTNKItSQ or THE OVSKKJtBK ATE on the afternoon of August 19, one hundred years ago, Cap tain Isaac Hull, one of Ameri | ca’s greatest naval command ers, won a wager of a hat from L Captain James Richard Dacre# of the British navy. In addition to the hat, the Englishman lost the first action between frigates in the war of 1812, and his country suffered a blow to its pride and prestige from which It was long In recovering. A few dayß later the Constitution, one of the vessels which the British commanders had sneerlngly called the “fir-built Yankee frigatee flying a piece of striped bunt ing at their mast-heads," appeared off Boston lighthouse gaily decked with flags and proudly passed up the har bor to tell of the capture and destruc tion of the Guerrlere. Only a month before this momen tous engagement Captain Hull had had an exciting experience with the Guerrlere and her consortß, the Bevl dere and Eeolus. These three vessels piersued the Constitution for more than 66 hours aud Captain Hull es caped only by indomitable persever ance and most Rkillful seamanship, putting Into Boston for supplies. Early In August tbe Constitution started out again on a bunt for the enemy, and on August 19 a sail was sighted that proved to be a British frigate which, from her maneuvers, was evidently desirous of engaging. When the vessels were three miles apart Captain Hull sent down bis royal yards, reefed his topsails and sent the crew to quarters This crow was remarkably disciplined and drill ed at the guns, and more than that, scarcely a man of them but had a score to settle with the English. On the bare backs of most of them were tbe scars made by the lashes of the brutal English press gangs, and many were descendants of American sailors who had suffered martyrdom in the British prison ships during the Revo lution. Hull himself kept In mind the fact that his father died in a pest ship from the cruel treatment he bad re ceived- Hull Wanted the Hat. Soon after 4 o'clock the two fri gates exchanged ineffectual broad sides while maneuvering for position and constantly drawing closer. About 6 o'clock. Hull, becoming impatient, ordered the Constitution to be steered directly for the enemy and rapidly closed upon his port quarter. By the orders of Hull the Americans now ceased firing and made all prepara tions for an effective broadside, reload ing the guns carefully with round shot and grape and training them upon the British ship. The Englishmen were to be seen working their guns stead ily, and their frequent cheers were plainly heard. What followed Is thuß told by Edgar S Maclay In his "His tory of the Navy” - “As yet no order had come from the quarter-deck of the American frigate, and perfect quiet prevailed along her decks as the men stood by their guns, nearly all of them barefooted and many striprod to the waist, ever and anon casting inquiring glances at their officers. At tills moment a shot struck the Constitution's bulwarks and threw Innumerable splinters over the first division of the gun deck, wounding severnl men Observing the effect of this shot, the Englishmen gave three cheers: but still the Amer ican frigate remained silent Eirst Lieutenant Morris now approached the quarter-deck, where Captain Hull was coolly pacing back and forth, and said: ’The enemy has opened fire Garden Science. “You have some fine tomato vines In your garden. Mr. Thorpe. You know, I presume, that the scientific name of the tomato is Lycopersicum Esculentum "No. I had forgotten that. Miss Doris; but I know the scientific name of the long, green, corrugated, vora cious thing with a horn on its head, that mostly grows on these vines.

Mrs. I>e Good—The roof has been repaired since then. Mr. De Good—Huh! Then they’ll be wanting money to pay for the repairs. Too Slow. "And did you enjoy Venice?” “No. I can’t say that we did. We were not once arrested for breaking the speed record with our gondolas.” and killed two of oar men. Shall wo return itr ‘Not jot, air,' waa tho responio from tho quarter-deck, and the men saw their mutilated ohlp mateo hurried below to the surgeon's table, while they stood silently at their guns in momentary expectation of meeting a similar fate. Nothing but the perfect discipline in the Amer ican frigate restrained tho impatlenco of the gun crews and prevented them from returning the Englishman's can nonading Three times Lieutenant Morris asked if he could open Ore, and three times he was answered with a calm 'Not yet, sir.’ ‘‘But at last, having gained a posi tion about 40 yards off the enemy’s port quarter, Captain Hull gave the order to Are as the guns bore. In an instant the frigate belched forth a storm of iron hail that carried death I and destruction into the opposing ship. The splinters were seen to fly over the British frigate like a cloud, some of them reaching as high as the mizzen-top, while the cheers of her men abruptly ceased and the shrieks and groans of the wounded were beard. The Americans had. struck their first earnest blow, and it was a staggering one. The Englishman felt its full weight, and perhaps for tho first time realized that this waa no child's play.” British Vessel Shattered. Serving their guns with extraor dinary rapidity and accuracy, the Americans inflicted great damage on the Guerriere’s hull and rigging, and a round shot brought down the Eng lishman's mizzenmast. This brought the Guerrlere up Into the wind and the Constitution got in two raking broad sides. The vessels came together with the Englishman's Jib boom ex tending across the Constitution s quarter deck. Both crews prepared for boarding, but the rolling of the ships prevented this. Meanwhile the sharpshooters in the tops were work ing with energy and several officers and many men on both sides were killed or wounded. Captain Hull stepped upon a chest to lead the board ers. but a seaman pulled him down, beg ging him not to so expose himself while wearing "those swabs." re ferring to his epaulets. The frigates now fell apart, and in dropping astern tho Guerriere’s bow sprit struck the American’s taffrall. her forestays were slackened and her foremast went by the side, falling across the main stays. This brought down the mainmar.t and the vessel fell into the trough of the sea. a complete wreck, at each wave rolling the main deck guns in the water. Caputain Hull, seeing that the en emy was done for. drew off to repair damages so that he should not be caught by any other British vessel that might come along, and returning later, sent Lieutenant Hoad to take possession Captain Dacres reluct antly admitted that he could not con ! tinue the combat and accompanied Head to the Constitution. As he came ! up the side on n rope ladder Captain i Hull assisted him. saying: "Give me 1 your hand. Dacres. I know you are hurt.” And when the conquered com mander offered his sword. Hull cried: "No. I will not take the sword from om* who knows so well how to use It, hut I’ll trouble you for that hat." The wager on the outcome of a pos sible meeting between their respective frigates had been made before the breaking out of hostilities. Another Clew.

TWO CARBUNCLES ON NECK Veterans' Home, Napa Co., Cal. —"I was afflicted with two carbuncles on the back of my neck. The doctors said they were the largest carbuncles he ever shw. I suffered the most intense agony, so much that I could not rest or sleep for about a month. One was lanced four times. When the first be gan to get better another broke out and was equally as painful as the first one. I heard of Cutlcura Soap and Ointment being good for such things, so I procured a box of Cutlcura Oint ment and a cake of Cutlcura Soap. I washed both the carbuncles with Cut!- cura Soap frequently whenever any pus began to gather, and applied the Cutlcura Ointment. I felt relief after tho first use of Cutlcura Soap and Ointment, and In a week’s time both carbuncles w’ere gone and I was com pletely cured. I have not been trou bled since. “I also had eczema of the scalp. My scalp Itched fearfully and pimples be gan to break out which emitted pus, and my head became sore and scaly. I had dandruff also.
