The audacious robbery of the Little Kock
express train on the L'airo ana ruiion ran
road on Saturday, at no greater distance
than one hundred and twenty miles from
St. Louis, was, as might well be supposed,
the absorbing topic in all circles yesterday.

which left Malvern at 11 o clock yesterday
(the point at which travellers m ue x
Snrinas leave the Cairo and Fulton rail
road, forty miles south of this city) when
within about five miles of the Hot Springs,
last evening about 3 o'clock, was attacked
by a band ot five highwaymen masked,
who took possesion of the mail bags and
the valuables of the passengers and one ot
the stage horses, and then rode away.
There were fourteen PW i?? "J?

From the Little Rock (Ark.) Gazette
r Ui a R (Trump, representative
A; 1 1 JJ-4 .hi . v " .
of the wholesale tobacco and Cigar house
of Edmonds, Petttgrew & Co., of Memphis,
who arrived from Hot Springs last night,
and who was on Thursday s stage, going
to the Springs, at the time of the robbery
referred to in Friday's Gazette, we learn
the particulars of the affair. There was
one stage and two light road-wagons, or
ambulances, the stage being in front and
,ho i,thr two vehicles immediately in the
rear At the Gaines place, five miles this
side of Hot Springs,the sfcwes were stopp
.i rr wter the stock. hile watering,
five men rode up, coming from toward Hot
Springs, and passed on by. aacn man
wore a heavv blue army overcoat, but none
nf tham war to anted. Nothing was
thought ot the matter, and the vehicles
mrworl nn Aftr o-ninfir nassed them at the
Gaines place they rode up from behind,and
the first thing that Mr. crump who w
in the front stage heard was an order to
the driver to stop, or his head would be
blown off. The stage was stopped, and on
throwing up the curtain he saw a pistol
pointed at him and others in the stage tell
ing them to get out quick, accompanied by
an oath. They got out, and as they did so
were ordered to throw up their hands.
Three men were in front of them with
cocked pistols and another with a shot gun,
while on the other side ot the stage was
still another all pointing their weapons
toward the passengers and the driver.
After getting the passengers out, they
made them form in a kind of circle, so
that all of them could be cov
ered by the pistols and gun. The leader
then went through each passenger, taking
all the watches, jewelry and money that
could conveniently be found that were of
special value. From ex-Governor Bur
bank, of Dakota, they obtained 840 in
uiouey, a diamond pin and gold watch.
A gentleman named Taylor, from Lowell,
Mass., went up for $5) in money. A pas
senger from Syracuse. N. I., gave up his
last nickle, lto. Mr. Johnny Dietrich,
our boot and shoe merchant, lost $.' in
money and a fine gold watch, i le had &ru i
tsiio8 this in the watch pocket of his ';
i.ants that they did not find. Mr. Charley j Parj
M ore. ot the ice house, gave upfiO in
money and bis silver watch, but they re
turned the latter, stating that they did not
want silver watches. A Mr. Peoples who
resides near Hot Springs, lost $2u. Three
Countrymen fat about $15. The express
1 - r mtuinitiL' about $ 4. u. was also
taken Mr. Crumi) hud his watch aw
about $4o or $o0 in money gobbled. Af
ter getting through with the passengers,
they tore open several mail sacks in search
of registered letters, but did not get any.
While the main natty was engaged in this
work, another took out the best horse in
the coaeh. saddled him. rode up and down
the road about fifty yards two or three
times, and remarked that "he would do.
After all this,the"Captain "went to each
passenger in turn and questioned hini as to
where he was from, and inquired if there
were any Southern men along. Mr.Crunip
spoke up, as did one or two others, that
they were Southern men. Thev then ask
ed if there were any who had served in the
Confederate army during the war. Mr.
Crump answered that he did. They ques
tioned him as to what command, and remark
ing that be looked like ai. honest fellow,
one who was telline the truth, handed him
back his watch and money, saying they
did not want to rob Confederate soldiers.
that the Northern men had driven them
into outlawry, and they intended to make
them pay for it.
Coming to Mr. Taylor, of Lowell, they
asked him whore he was from.
"St. Louis," he responded.
The "Captain" eyed him closely. "Yea,
and you are a newspaper reporter for the
St. Louis Democrat,Uie vilest paper in the
West. io to Hot Springs and send the
Democrat a telegram about the affair, and
give them my compliments.
Governor Biirbank asked them to return
his papers, saying they could be of DO ben
efit to them. The 'Captain 'squatted down
on his knees and commenced examining
thorn. Tuning round to his followers, he
said. "Bovs. 1 believe he is a detective
shoot him !" and forthwith he was covered
with three pistols. "Stop," said the chief,
"I guess it s all light," and handed the
Governor his papers. Coming to the gen
tleman from Syracuse N. V.. who was go
ing to the Spring fW nu health, he asked
them to give him back $f, so that he could
telegraph home. Kycing him closely, the
chief 'responded that If lie had no friends
or money he had better go and die that
he would bfl little loss any way. The fel
low with the shot-gun kept pointing it at
the St. Louis Ihmnrrat wx. as they term
ed him, making such cheerf ul remarks as
this: "I'll bet 1 can shoot his hat oft with
out touching a hair of his head."
All of them seemed to be jolly fellows,
and enjoyed the fun very ranch. None of
the passengers were armed, and as Mr.
Crump expressed it, "they had the drop
on them. One passenger with the
rheumatisn, so badly afllicted that he
could uot get out of the coach, thoy did
not touch, refusing to take anything he had.
The affair occurred about 3:30 o Clock
Thursday evening, on the main road to
Hot Springs. From the talk of the "(yap
tain" it is thought they are from Missouri.
They took breakfast on the road betweeu
Malvern and Hot Springs. and from the de
scription it is thought the chief is a ccle
brated Missouri brigand (whose name we
now forget), who has been outlawed by the
authorities of that State, and for whom
there is a standing reward of $1 0,000. It
may be the same party who rode into Cape
Girardeau about 9 o'clock one morning last
spring, walked into a bank, pulled a pistol
on the Cashier and robbed the institution
of several thousand dollars, and then de
liberately rode out of town before the pco-
i 1 l l . I mi
pie Knew wnut was going on. iney were
so heavily armed that Mr. Crump describ
ed them as walking armories
but it will be seen t the account Deiow
that the passengers were very few and
practically unarmed. Strange as it may
seem, experience has shown that most of
the persons carrying arms on a railroad
carry them in their carpet-sacks or trunks,
or some other place equally inaccessible in
an emergency. This is caused probably
by the law against carrying concealed
weapons, which, if it works well in some
instances, works very badly in others lhe

The great reason why physicians do not cure Con
sumption is, they try to do too much; tliey pve
medicine to stop the cough, to stop the chills, to
stop night sweats, hetic fever, and by so doing they
derange the whole digestive powers, locking up the
secretions, and eventually the patient sinksanddies.
Dr. Schenck in his treatment doe not try to stop
n cough, night sweats, chills or fever. Remove the
cause and they will all stop of their own accord. No
one can be cured of Consumption, Liver Complaint, .
If a person has Consumption, of course the lungs

less the liver and stomach are made healthy.
When there is no lung disease, and only Liver
Complaint and Dyspepsia, Schenfs Seaweed Tonic
and Mandrake Pills are sufficient, without the Pul
monic Syrup. Take the Mandrake Pills freely in all
bilious comolaints, as thev are icrfectly harmless.
Dr. Schcnck's three medicines, which will bring np
a tone to the stomacn., the patient will begin to want
food.it will digest easily and make good blood ; then
the patient begins to gain in flesh, and as soon as the
body begins to grow the lungs commence to heal up,
in some way are diseased, either tubercles, abscesses.
bronchial irritations, pleura adhcBion exist, or the
lungs are a mass of luflr.tnatlon and fast decaying!
In such cases what must be done li is not only the
lungs that are watting but It is the whole body.
The stomach and liver have lost their Dower to make
blood out or food. Now, the only chance is to take
and the patient gets fleshy and well. This la the
oulv way to cure Consumption.
