IP! fetsi H. '4 e\ GANG BLOWS STATE BANK THERE AND SECURES $760 IN CASH AND HAKE ESCAPE Five Charges of Explosives Used to Get to Cash Drawer in Vault—Sup position is That Five Men Consti tuted the Gang—Sheriff of Day County is Investigating, Although He Has No Descriptions One of the most daring as well as successful 'bank robberies in this neighborhood in along time was that •of the Holmquist State Bank at Holmquist, a small town between Bristol and Webster on the Mil waukee, about 1 o'clock Sunday morning. About that hour in the morning the robbers entered the bank by breaking open a door and after blowing open the safe made .good their escape with $760 In coin and currency. There is but very little definite in formation obtainable regarding the avair, as there were no strangers seen about the town on the day pre vious to the robbery except one man who came into the store there to get something to eat. There was only one man in the store at the time, and he says that while he would know the man again if he saw him he could not give a verbal de scription. It is surmised that there were sev eral people In the gang, and that they stayed out of Bight during the $ly and only venured forth to do| their work at a late hour, when all the inhabitants of the little town •were asleep. Evidently the burg lars were old timers at the trade, as all the details of the cracking of the safe showed the earmarks of experi enced perpetrators. Five charges of nitro-glycerine were used, and the force of the explosion was so tre mendous that two doors of the in terior part of the building were blown through,, the glass front and out into the middle tif the street. What seems strange 1b the fact that the noise of the explosion was not noticed by some of the Inhabitants of the twn, but that it was nt is par tially accounted for by the fact that there was a hard wind blowing and although there was a noise heard by some it was attributed to the action of the wind. Charles Carlson is president of the bank which sustained the loss and Albert Holmquist is cashier. Sher iff Charles J. Lunquist of Day coun ty was called from his home at Web ster Sunday to investigate the mat ter. A detective was also employed to trace the fugitives and he arrived promptly. Yesterday he came to Ab erdeen to see if any signs of the rob bers could be found, as it Is thought that they headed west after they had accomplished their work. The general opinion at Holmquist is to the effect that there were about five men in the gang, and that they were well organized and knew their business. It is supposed that the man who appeared at the' store the night before was the scout of the 'party and that he reconnoitered the place and reported to his pals, who kept under cover. ?v Up to the time of going to press there had been no cues discovered Pleading to the location of the men, .'and it probable that they will ext be located 'by another affair similar .to the one at Holmquist Saturday *, night. Every effort, however, is be jls-r lng made to find the robbers on the fi^'Tfcart of the autll01'ltle8 ,r and a11 the fJ'iljSurrounding towns and cities have 'w ''been warned to look out for sus .^picious characters.

D., March 23.—The striking of a piece of brass at a depth of 50 feet below the surface of the ground while workmen were drilling an artesian well on land owned by William Hudelson, living In the western part of Spearfish, was the innocent cause of a gold stam pede on the part of a number of Spearfish men. The excitement re sulted .when Hudelson appeared in town and reported thiat the drill had struck what appeared to be free gold in oonsiderabe quantities. He was provided with a pasteboard box containing some samples of the sup posed gold. The samples were shown to several old mining men, to whom they looked very good, the samples so closely resembling gold that even they were fooled. To remove all all doubt it was decided to submit the samples to what is known as the acid test .which waB done at once. The result was such as to put a damper on the enthusiasm of pros pectors who were about to rush to the new "gold dlggin's". The final conclusion was that the samples, instead of being particles of gold, were in reality pieces of brass which had been brought to the surface by the drill In the well. How the brass came to be at a depth of 50 feet in the ground is a mystery. MAKE IT YOURSELF Tells Our Readers How to Mix Best Rheumatism Cure.
