Two hardware stores and a blacksmith shop in addition were found to have been looted, everything they contained being carried off. The stuff taken, which comprised the entire stock in trade of every merchant in the village, must have been loaded into wagons and driven into the deep woods surrounding the place. From thence the thieves evidently expected to get it into St. Joseph or Kansas City. When the excitement cooled down a mounted band of vigil- ants were hastily armed, and are now scouring the country in pursuit of the raiders.
