1 A dispatch from Albany yesterdny
Roturnlng homo from tho Christ
mas ovo church services at Kingston,
to bo held up by a masked madman
at tho point of a rovolvor, was the
terrible experience of Mr. and Mrs.
William FoIUs, who resldo on a
farm about a quarter of a mllo from
Kingston. The presence of mind of
Mrs. Follis, who escaped from tho
houso and ran to tho nearest neigh
bors, Informing them of what was
occurring, perhaps saved tho lives of
both herself and husband.
When Mr. and Mrs. Follis reached
homo aftor attending tho Christmas
exorcises they woro surprised to find
that tho front door of their resi
dence was opon. Entering ln the
darkness, Mr. FoIUs struck a match
and was about to light a lamp stand
ing In ono corner of tho room, whon
bo found tho wick was turned down
Into tho oil. Tolling his wife that
ho would get another lnmp that was
ln an adjoining bedroom, ho opened
tho door to enter, when ho wa?
brought to a Eiulden stop by tho sharp
command, "Hands up," enforced by
a revolver Hoveled nt his bead.
JuBt walk back whoro you camo
from and keep quiet," continued tho
volco. Too frightened to spenk, Fol
Ms obeyed with hands held high.
In tho monntimo, Mrs. FoIUs, who
hnd boon Btnndlng within a fow feet
of hor husband when the order to
throw up his hands was given, quiet
ly hnBtonod from tho room and out
of tho front door loft standing opou
nnd ran toward town to glvo tho
alarm. Owing to the darkness in
tho room tho holdup man did not boo
tho woman leave.
"Whoro's your wife?" quorlod tho
masked flguro. "I hpad hor Just n
Folllu lookod about but not sooing
hor answered that h" supposed sho
had falntod In the kitchen. Guiding
his prlsonor boforo him, tho man
with tho gun ontored tho room des
ignated by Follis, and whon no trnco
of Mrs. Follis was found, Immediate
ly aurmlsod whoro tho woman hnd
disappeared to. In tho half light,
Follh rocognlzod. tho "holdup" as u
tramp who had workod for him somo
days previous. Ho accusod his cap

Suddenly changing his demeanor,
tho man nseumed a confldontlnl tone
nnd udmlttod that It was true.
"Say, I lmvo $10,000," he contin
ued, "and I will give you $500 If you
will koep this matter quiet." Tho
man appeared to bo frlghtoned, and
ln Bomo hnsto backed toward tho
door, still, however, kooplng his ro
volvor pointed toward FoIUs. Reach
ing the front door ho ropoatcd hU
offr to Follis, who had not replied,
and with a quick movomont turnod
and ran out into tho night, disap
pearing In tho thick undorbruBh
alongside the rond. Follis, nftor his
harrowing experience, ran up the
road toward Kingston, whoro ho mot
u pnrty of men who woro hnstonlng to
tho house In rosponse to the alarm
given by Mrs. Follis.

residents of Kingston tho mnn who
did tho holdup act, and ndmlttod to
having worked for FoIUs, had boon
