mystery. Tbe son supposed to be missing
was found in the ashes of tbe barn and
fully identified by bis watch and other
articles, thouzh burned beyond recogni
tion. The father and mother reveal fear
ful mutilation by bullets and bruises. The
evidence reveals a fearful struggle. Tbe
Imrn is about four hundred feet away and
there are some blood stains lstween the
house and barn, as from bleeding wounds.
There is a growing suspicion that the son
killed his father and mother and then
rushed to the barn, setting it on fire and
killing himself. A pistol was found near
him empty.

at noon. The governor message was read
in joint session after which both branche

stood that the session will adjourn at the
end of this week without having passed
ny bills. The governor has been using
all his influence on the Populists to have
them vote to continue the session for at
least thirty days. Many have forsaken

a majority in-. both houses favorable to an
immediate adjournment.

St. JoF.ru, Mo., Jan. 11. For the second
time within a few months this city has
been the seen? of an attempted train rob
bery. On tbe 2.th of last Snptember an at
tempt to hold up a train on the Council
Bluffs road was frustrated by tbe officers
being informed of the proposed plan. Two
of the robbers were killed that evening
and another was recently eentenced to ten
rears in the penitentiary. This was thought
sufficient to put a stop to the operations of
this class of people in this city, but last
sight another train was held up and this
me it was almost within t he city limits.
The Burlington "Eli," leaving this city at
6X3 p. El., was held up about three miles
east cf St. Joe by five masked men. The
train was stopped by torpedoes being
place! on the track and a red lantern
wucs across the road In regulation cus
tom.
Did It Like Tbey Were Experts.
As soon as the train stopped three of the
robbers boarded tbe engine with drawn
e vol vers and ordered th engineer and
fireman to accompany then to the express
car and order the express messenger to
open the door. This they did, and upon
being ordered to open the door the express
messenger did so, when lie was covered
with a rifle in tbe bands of one of the men.
Three others with revolvers in each hand
bad entered the car and tbe messenger was
ordered to open the safe. The robbers then
took all there was in the safe, which
amount is cbiimeil by the railroad officials
not to exceed $50. This statement is not
credited here, however, as 'Superintendent
Hold, of the Burlington road, and W. H,
Moselv, of the Adams Express company,
Lave lieen in consultation v.ith the sheriff
and the chief of police, and a posss has
lieen orgauized. )
Tv. r the Thn gs nesrribed.
The following is given as descriptions of
two of tbe robbers who were in the express
car: tlnp is tall and slim aud wore a light
brown suit with double-breasted coat and
bo overcoat. The other was short and wore
a black suit, black overcoat and black
Derby hat. The engineer and other train
men were unable to give a description of
the other three men. All the trainmen
think tbe rubliers were amateurs, as they
were nervous all during Aie affair and ap
peared much excited.
Wkat a Brakeaiaa Says,
A brakeman who was too late to catch
bis train, the "Eli," says- the robbers en
tered tbe mail and express cars and took
all the registered mail in! the former and
all the packages in thesaTu of the latter.
Tliis lirakcman fol lowed t he "EH" on the
St. Ionis train which leayesthisciry about
& half hour asterwards. ' in the hope of
catching his regular train, ile reached
the scene just after the robbery was com-
mitted.
