Staples, 28 Auburn Bank Robbers' Caught. The Times Special Service. Russell ville, Ky., April 29. --After trailing them all night with bloodhounds on clews furnished by relatives, two men who admitted they were the bandits who robbed the G W. Davidson & Co , bank at Auburn of $113,000 in gold, currency aDd bonds uesday were captured at 9 o'clock this morning near Browder, a mining town in Muhlenburg county, thirty miles north of here and ten miles south of Central City. The men under arrest are Boyd Thomason, a native of this section, for whom the officers had been seeking since the day of the robbery, and a companion named Smith or Shiplett, who is said to have come to this section with Thomason from Oklahoma. 0 The men had between $8,000 and possession and said they in their had hidden the rest of the loot, which was in bonds. This was recovered be fore their capture through information supplied by Tnomason's relatives. They made no denial of being the wanted men and said they would show the officers where they had hidden the rest of the money. The men were g caught on Mud River, on the border, a mile from $12-00Butler-MuhienburCo-ru- WhyNoi?. The old turnpike idea of building roads, and collecting toll from the traveling public was not a bad one, although it seems to have gone into disfavor these latter days We are not certain that we ought not to go back to it, if we are to have roads fit for public use in this section After all, it was not unreasonable, and it furnished a way to keep the roads in repair. It accords with the old axiom that the dancers should pay for the music. To build roads without some means of will always prove a failure and result in loss. The toll is not an unfair way to provide for the repairs Now, having said this much we wish to inquire why it is not possible to have a toll road between this point and CreelsboroV And why it would not be very desirable for both places? It would give the latter place an outlet during the summer months for freight,- - and all the year for travel, and it would open up to Columbia the rich Cumberland bottoms, and freight by way of the river from Nashville and Cincinnati during the winter months. It would add immensely to up-ke- ep Passing of An Old Citizen. Mass Meetings. New Candidate.

Several months ago Clint Curry, a colored man of this place, who is full of humor, went to Newcomerstown, Ohio, to better his condition. He was gone about two months, and when he alighted from the mail car, on his return, he was met by Lagan Bomar, of his race, who is getting along in years, who addressed him thusly: "Got back has you?" "Yes, I thought I would come home and see my wife and children." "Arhar, you had better stayed. Where have you been anyhow?" "Well, Uncle Loge, I have been to Louisville, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, and many other large places.

One lone bloodhound was about ten minutes in advance of the posse and the hound brought the men at bay in a clump of willows on the bank. The owner of the dogs, who had accompanied them from Nashville, was the first man on the scene The bandits started to run out of the willows as the dogs' owner approached:, but he commanded them to stop. The bandits theri threw their gons into the river and held up their bands. A Pinkerton man was close behind and the two took the men into custody, recovering the cash they carried. A score or more of Pinkerton detectives and county officials participated in the capture, according to a telephone message to the authorities here, where the prisoners were being ree. the intermediate -- country in wealth and convenience all the year round.

Crane, U. S. Minister to China, to the American Committee of the China Famine. Fund, it is stated, that a Bubonic plague which a few months ago appeared in Northern Manchuria; has crept southward until it now threatens the main grain supply of China, which increases the burdens of this t nation. As far back as 1917, China's troubles began to multiply when the Yellow River, always known as "China's Sowow," overflowed its banks and swept the great provinces of Shantunp end Shansi. The crops were destroyed and millions of persons made homeless. Floods are not unusual in north China, but then came the great drouth and not until last summer did the rain clouds come between the dry brown earth and its tormenter the sun. Faced Peril in Silence. But during these days, months and even years, when the food was gone, China did not raise her voice for help. The world did not know of the great tragedy in the Far East enacted on a parched stage with 45,000,000 famished people as the actors. It seemed that at last their troubles had ended when the green things began to peep above the ground last summer. Then came that old enemy of mankind locusts in droves, in clouds so thick they obscured the light of sun descended as from nowhere, and almost over night the earth was stripped of every living growing thing. The stage once more was a parched, brown, dry desert; but many of the actors had passed into the land f their ancestors. In some recent information receiver, an instance is recited describing the terrible destitution of the famine stricken land a donkey had died in a distant province from lack of food. Its owner carted it into the interior of the famine area where eager bidders finally ran the price up to $2 to use its carcass for food. woe-bese- i .
