ing now a of u daring and successful rob
bery at his Bloro nt 7:u0 last night.
Three masked men eamo into Iho store
Two entered from tho front door, and
ouu camo in through tho back rooms,
occupied by Mr. Jorgeus' family aa living
apartments. Tho latter drove Mrs. Jor
geus, h sick woman, into tho store, thus
rounding up all tho occupantB of tho
honse. Mr. Jorgeus and his clerk were
in iho storo. ' Ho identified one of the
robber as it tiiau who had been stopping
wilh him for twodays. His lirst thought
was that it was a coarse joko. Thii man
lia-l &nu out and brought in his two
companions, who had betn concealed in
thu brush, his appearance ut the store
having been for tho pur050 of learning
the surrounding, locating valuables and
selecting tho most opportuno lima for the
hold-up. Tho robbers were armed with
a double-barreled sholgnn and two re
volvers. As they came into tho room,
they ordered all present to I brow uji

mouey, $10(50 of which had been deposited
by Indians with Mr. Jorgens for safe
keeping; six gold watches, a tray of gold
ring:?, a bhotgun arid a ritlc. They then
backed out of tho room, mounted their
horses and rode away in tho darkness.
.Mr. Jorgens immediately organized a

ten Indians were scouring the country.
It ia believed tho thieves headed for the

he immediately telegraphed to the

believed the alaim has been so thor
oughly sounded that the robbers will be
unable to escape.

"Then thcro was life in her touch.
Her fingers fairly sparkled as they ran
