bod, Hillsdale, Monday night, short
ly after 8 o'clock, a. desperate strug

and heavily armed robber, Mr. and
Mrs. Sanlesson and Miss Agnes
Santesson. The murderous crim
inal demanding the money of the
household, entered with leveled re
volver. Instead of making com
pliance with his request, the man
of the house attacked him, precipi
tating a battle in which two shots
were fired, and the entire family
was felled and left lying on the
floor, after'which the bandit escap

Without making a reply in words,
Mr. Santesson, ;who is auite well
along in years but possessed of suf-
iiciect nerve and strength to put
up. a hard fight, leaped at the
matked man. He Btrock the robber
in the face and attempted to clinch
with him, but jumped aside to es
cape a bullet fired by the desperado.
Backing off, . hardly knowing
what action to take, tha robber
glowered at Mrs. and Miss Santes
sen for a moment. Seeing her fath
er on the Boor, Miss Agnes Santea
sen excitedly made & rash toward
the man with the weapon, and her
father got up just in time to knock
her to one side as a second bullet
from the revolver was fired She
was saved from barm, but Mr. San
tessen was struck in the forehead,
the bullet glancing and inflicting a
scalp wound. He" was stunned;
however, and fell to the floor.
Then Mrs. Santessen boldly
rushed toward the robber. She
made an attempt to strike him with
her fists, but h9 laid hold of the
barrel of his revolver and struck
her repeatedly with the butt end,
beating her to the floor and finally
breaking off the barrel of his weap

Viewing the three victims lying
about and evidently fearing-assist-ance
would reach the family from
outside, the foiled desperado turn
ed and fled. He had been thorough-'
ly beaten in his attempt at robbery,
had nearly killed the - family and
had lost his. weapon. ,:
It was not long before Mr. and
Mrs. Santesson and Miss Agnes re
covered sufficiently to get,; up and
call for help. A physician was
summoned and the wounds of the
injured attended. Fortunately none
of the family ,was seriously hurt.
Mr. Santesson's scalp wound was
not bad. Mrs. Santesson is not ex
pected to suffer any serious results
and Miss Agnes was 'quite recover

Warsaw, March 26. According
to latest information, the attack on
Baron von Nolken was the result of
an elaborate conspiracy of the rev
olutionary party. Shortly, before 8
o'clock tonight an elegantly-dreBS-ed
man went to the police station"
at Praga, a large euburbof Warsaw;
on the other eide of tbe .Vistula,
and threw a bomb into the court
yard of the station, wounding seven
persons, two of them dangerously.
The man started to rah away but
waB caught by the aaptain V ol. the
pslice. He was found to be "a Jew,
but his identity has not been discovered.-
A telephone message was ! imme
diately sent to Baron vort Nolken
at "e City Hall;' informing him of
the outrage. Baron von: Nolken,
accompanied , by a police official,
took a carriagf" and started imme
diately for Praga
the governor general resides a man
standing on the pavement , threw a
bomb at the carriage. Baron yon
Nolken, who was siting on the side
nearest the assailant, received the

box and the carriage was demolish
Baron von Nolken was removed
to the City Hall atid " doctors $ were
summoned, 'who found he. had iet
ceived injuries on the head, : neck,
arm and leg, which are believed to
be serious. ?-:;'' : ' '-'-''
Meantime- the police ' officialvSc
company in g Baron von Nolken saw
the bomb thrower fleeing and pur
sued and caught up with'hkn but
the criminal 5 proved ; the stronger
and tore himBelf rway.- Another.
policeman - fired twice after him
without result. Half an hour later
a man, whom the police believe "to
be the bomb thrower, was found
dead in Sowia street. The police
think the man shot himself to es
cape arrest. -.y --' ..:
A girl, who was passing the spot
when the bomb was thrown,' was
wounded by splinters, and was tak
en to the hospital. - . . . " '
According to the theory of the
police, the revolutionists calculated
upoa Baron von Nolken going to
Praga on learning of the explosion
of the bomb at the station there, and
knew he must pass the castle, that
being the only road by which he
could reach the only bridge , across
The affair caused great excite
ment. A popular rumor says the
revolutionaries adopted this course
of informing the police that they
have more bombs besides those dis
covered in the Powonski cemetery
