INTERESTING ITEMS. *_ Kansas City is convulsed with laughter over the experience of two (Ictectives who, attired in the latest feminine fashions, attempted to catch a notorious purso sna'cher. Tha detectives, Adgar Hilton and Louis Morley, are both small men, and this gave them the idea of disguising themselves us women in order to capture the man who operated suc cessfully at a busy tramway cross ing. In tight skirts, satin shoes, silk shoes and staail velvet hat-3 with rakish egrets, they took up a position at a car stopping place, aud it was not long before a negro slouching down the streot seized Wilson's silver mesh pur:;e, and fled. The detcctives produced revolvers, and called upon the thief to halt, but when they attempted to pur sue their light skirts proved their undoing. The rnortitk-d officers sent several shots after the t'nitff without, effect, and a iter stumbling over the cobble stones in their unaccustomed garb for bome 50 yards they aban dobed the pursuit.
