crime! a hold up, a chase!
A real hold up in "dime novel style" The bad men wore no masks. They knocked out poor "Shellie." Car loads of armed men gave chase north of town!
Their path was apparently on the road north of the football field. They went down into the creek at that first bridge over Clear Creek. Mrs. Crisler called from the Purcell farm, which was east of the road nearing the top of the hill. They got to the railroad track and were walking north when the posse came into sight. They made a break for the river where near the "site" of the old oil well. They didn't make it. "Gleaming guns pointed at them from all directions."
