Gets Two Revolvers From Men
And Escapes Without
Roseburg, Oregon, Oct. 8 .— A
lone masked highwayman held up
the stage from Myrtle Point within
a mile of Rooeburg last night, and
after taking about $50 in cash, some
jewelry and other valuables, made
his getaway. Just before disappear
ing from the passengers whom he
had compelled to dismount and
“ shell out” he called to the stage
driver to give his “ regards to Sheriff
Fenton.’’ No clue has, so far, b'.an
found to the bandit.
The stage robber displayed all
the chivalry of a plumed knight of
centuries ago. As the stage round
ed a sharp curve in tbe road where
he stood bidden by trees, be stepped
out in tbe roadway and ordered
the drivers to halt and dismount.
Keeping them covered he called to
the eight occupants of the stage to
come outside. They quickly com
plied although some of tbe women
“ D on’t be scared ladies,” said the
bandit, “ I won’ t molest you.” And
he didn’t. He ordered them to step
away a little to one side and did not
ask them to turn over their jewels
The men quickiy complied with
his order to “ shell out.” As M.
Plumb and Harrv McChesnev
turned over their pocketbooks and
change, the bandit noticed some
thing in their hip pockets and sharp
ly ordered them to come through
As they emptied their
hip pockets his eyes twinkled at the
sight of two loaded revolvers.
That tbe bandit did not make a
greater haul was partly due to his
chivalry in the treatment of the
women and also to the thoughtful
ness of John Hastings of Bridge.
Hastings heard the robber's com
mand to the drivers to “ stop” and
he at once realized the situation.
Grabbing his pocketbook contain
ing about $800 in cash, be dropped

A Series of accidents
A sories of accidents befell R. D.
Hume’s two gasoline boats as they
were coming up tbe coast from Port
Orford to this port Wednesday af

to replace the Berwick which was
wrecked on the Siuslatv bar last

When almost to Cape Arago the
engines of the Enterprise suddenly
refused, to work and the Ospray’s
engines were started and two lines
passed to the Enterprise prepara
tory to crossing tbe bar.
past the black buoy the lines parted
allowing the Enterprise with her
captain and crew of 8 men to drift
directly toward the big rock, upon
which the swells threatened every
moment to smash the little boat.
The lookout at the life saving
station saw tbe predicament of the
boat and crew and hastened to her
They made the trip in a
remarkably short time and succeed
ed in getting a line from the Ospray
to the drifting boat before it* hit
The Ospray had stood by, but on
account of the swells could not get
a line to the helpless boat.
Some of the cargo w&s washed
over. The Ospray towed the dis
abled boat to the city dock where
her engines are being given atten
tion. It will be remembered by
those who have followed the gaso
line boat building of Coos county
that the engines of the Enterprise
refused to work for six months af
ter they were installed and three
gas engine experts grew discour
aged trying to make them go.
Tbe members of the crew are con
gratulating themselves on their nar
row escape and praise the life sav
ing station for their prompt and
able assistance— Ceos Bay Harcor.

Torn Stamps W ill Not Go.
A new order in the pogtoffice de
partment went into effect recently.
By its terms defaced stamps here
after are worthless. Should a cor
ner be torn off, no matter how small
or the stamp be mutilated in any
way it cannot longer be used. All
letters bearing such stamps will be
held at the postoffice two weeks for
roaovery, and at the end o f that
time, if not claimed, will be sent to
tho dead letter office.
Another phase of the order is also
interesting. Pe. uuesion is now given
individuals to perforate the stamp
with a reasonably small instrument
for identification purposes. Such a
step is intended to prevent the send
ing of anonymous letters, or the
theft or mutilation of private mail
of any nature.

they are not grafters, and present
one of the cleanest and most enter

They give another performance to

was liberal last night a larger at
tendance is expected this evening.
It can well be said of tbe Godfrey
family that they are all stars.
