The sav ings bank at Slieldahl. twenty miles north from here, was blown up by four roblers last night, who secured .l.(MO and escaped after holding fifty" or more citizens at bay with rifles. Shortly after midnight a terrific explosion shook the town and imme diately the inhabitnntsturned out to learn the cause. A glance up the main street showed the building of the savings bank to be iu ruins and the timlers burning. Fifty citizens rushed to the scene to Ite met by the gleaming barrels f two rifles in the hands of two stran gers, who ordered the citizens to halt. As the ruins burned brighter two other strangers were looting the wrecked safe. The crowd of citizens had brought no weapons. The two rohbers on guard threatened death to those who moved from their tracks, and the help- ess citizens of Sheldahl were compell ed to witness the roblierv of their savings without lifting a hand in remonstrance. When the two robbers who were looting the safe had secured all the money available they joined their two confederates and with leveled rifles the four marauders lined up the band of citizen who stood with hands held high as ordered until the four roblers had backed awav into the darkness and fled. The bank building is a total wreck. No trace of the roblers has been discovered. Sc. 0c 0c 24c WlllllllllMIMIMMMMIIIIHMIIMHI0HI0HMI0IMIMIII0t0O0O DUVALL fc PERCIVAL, BUTLER, MISSOURI. FJLBM LOANS.

More than 10O were killed iu Camerinos province, under General Bell, and at least 50 were killed in their recent attack upon Cagayan de Misamis, in Northern Mindanao.
