tected while stealing articles from
the counters and were requested to

of which was valuable. Their promi
nence leads to the belief that they
are kleptomaniacs. The matter was
reported to the police, but the names
are withheld by the latter.

evening and had it not been for the
merest accident or oversight on the
part of the young outlaws, their ac

Gibbs. Mr. Gibbs was walking along
Third avenue about 0:30, and when at
the intersection of Twelfth street.
two young men stepped in front of
him and thrust a revolver into his
face. The weapon was so close to
Mr. Gibbs that he became frightened

followed in which Mr. Gibbs got the

in getting the gun away from the
young man after it had been snapped
twice. It seems only one of the hold

one gun was in possession, they did
not attempt to use it. After Gibbs had
the gnn in his possession, the young
men who hat! assailed him. fled, and
so far no clue as to their identity has
been found. From what can be learn

hold-up were amateurs and did not
