DAYLIGHT ROBBERY Thieves Secure Three Thousand Dol lars From a Michigan Bank. THEY MAKE THEIR ESCAPE 'Two Manked Men Force the Assistant Cashier to Open the Safe While They Load Up. I)eETROT, March 5.-Many daring burg laries and shooting affairs have oc curred in Washtenaw county during the - past few weeks, the burglary of Bow dish & Matteson's store in Ann Arbor being followed by the shooting of Offi. cers Peterson and Smith, who were ar resting the perpetrators at Ypsilanti; then the officers were thrown into a white heat by the burglary at Comstock Hill's house in Lodi, and the shooting of Hl.l's son by the burglar. But these affairs were thrown into the shade by, the daring, manner in which two burglars robbed the Dexter Savings bank. Nothing to equal it has ever been done in that section of the country, and it had all the earmarks of a raid on a western bank by the James or Dalton gang. The bank at Dexter is situated on the main street, where half the peo ple of the villag...

WAslINOTON, March 3.-The demo cratic members of the finance com mittee continued work on the Wilson bill, but did not make such progress as to justify the chairman in calling a meeting of the full committee for Mon day. There is little room to doubt that the committee has virtually decided upon a duty upon coal, iron oar, lead ore and many other articles on the free list in the Wilson bill, but the commit tee refuse to make an oflicial announce ment until the bill is presented as a whole. Among the other articles on which rates of duty have been decided upon are wines, fruits and nuts. Im portant changes are also made in the fruit schedule.

HE BET TO A FINISH A Game of Poker Played in North Dakota in Early Days. THREE SETS OF FOURS Stanley Huntley Broke Major Edwards in a Game Which Bismarck Has Been Talking of Ever Since. Nearly every newspaper reader in this country remembers ',Spoopendyke," whose disagreements with his better half were the subject of thesame highly humorous papers, which were widely published some years ago. Not every one knows, however, that the stories of the domestic misfortunes of "Spoop endyke" were written by Stanley Huntley, one of the brightest of uews paper men, who poured forth the trials of a troubled heart when he wrote the far-famed sketches. For Huntley was sadly mismated. The best of those "Spoopendyke" pa pers were written at Bismarck on the upper Missouri slyiver. It was in the boom days when the Northern Pacific was under construction and Custer was in his glory on the frontier that Huntley wandered into Bismarck, in an aimless way took a fancy to the wild frontier town and founded...
