Jumped From • Panhandle ] Passenger Train Near Kenneth. E. J. Toben, arresoed at Union City and en route to Chicago where he is wanted to answer to the charge of embezzlement and larceny, jumped from Panhandle passenger train Nu. 3, near Kenneth, at 3:05 o'clock Sunday morning. Toben was in charge of Marshal A. J. Harris, of Union City. The train was running at the rate of forty miles an hour. Tobia had a bottle or whisky, and appeared to be under tne Influence of liquor. Marshal Harris allowed him to leave his seat and go to the front end of the car for a drink of water. After quenching his thirst, Toben opened the car door, rushed out on the platform and jumped from the train. Noting Toben's movements Marshal Harris pulled the bell cord and after the train had stopped got off. After a vain search for Toben Harris walked to the city and reported the case to the police. AtHairls' request Patrolman Skelton and Deputy Sheriff Obenchaln accompanied him to the point where Toben Is supposed to have made the jump, but failed to find any trace of him. The supposition is that after the train had been stopped Toben boarded it again and thus gave Harris the slip- The Chicago parties who had been fleeced by Toben offered a reward of $100 for his arrest, and Harris hoped to obtain the prize. Toben's home is at Union City,and his people are said to be wealthy and highly respected. VERI TODSG CROOKS. Two Little Bojg Attempt to Victimize a Pharos Subscriber. Two little boys called at the home of Mrs. Mary Stoll, on Thirteenth and Wright streets, a few days ago, and asked her if she had paid her subscription to the Pharos for the month. "Yes," she answered. "Well, it aint marked on the book at the Pharos office," they replied. Mrs. Stoll told them she had a receipt for the money, and suspecting they were impostors, said that if the Pnaros people wanted collecting done, tbey would send bigger boys out to attend to it. The youngsters then disappeared and secretly got Mrs. Sboll's dog to follow them. They evidently penned the animal up, for several days elapsed before it got back home. An investigation was made, and the identity of the boys partially estaDllshed. but not certain enough to justify their airest. But if they attempt another crooffed move, they will be landed behind the bars This circumstances should serve as a warning to Pharos subscribers not pay their subscriptions to anyone not having a regular monthly receipt book made out and signed at at the Pharos office. A collector who has no such book Is an Impostor. MASS MEEl'UHtt HAS FOUR WIVES. Dr. A. C. Hendeuhall Arrested Warsaw. Sear A. C.
