want ed him to leave with them on Sunday but he was afraid to go There were three of the men he said He suppos ed they had gone hut on Monday he met Conway the smaller of the men arrested and this man stated he had waited to go with him Garlock be lieved the other two men had gone Sunday and so he prepared to go with the little dark man on Monday Monday morning he purchased a new pair of socks which he put on in the saloon across from the M St L depot at Albert Lea At this time he placed his money in his sock but he did not think his companion saw him Evidently he was mistaken on this point The two men caught the freight that evening and when they got into the car they found the men who were supposed to have gone on Sunday in the car The fourth man was an old man who seemed more talkative than the others and he said he wanted work Garlock told him he could find work on farms around Clear bake and he got off at Manly He did not seem to be in with tne other two men any more than Gar lock was At Mason City Garlock told the men he was going to get off but they told him the police were watching the trains and would arrest him if he did He did not get off and after that the men acted ineerly toward him They would not talk but seemed to prefer to whistle and refused to answer questions he asked He then lay down against the side of the car door which was partly open resting hln head against his right hand He had rode in this position but few miles when the two sprang toward him and one hit him on the head Then they shot twice Previously one of the men had bor rowed his overshoes to keep his feet warm They then turned Garlock over on his left side and stripped his shoes off and sock down taking his money Next they pushed his feet out of the car door and he believed they were loading a gun to shoot him again But they soon pushed him out onto the ground ITad they pushed him off the train a moment sooner he would have fallen several feet far ther into a small creek As he struck the gioiuid he recovered from t1s momentary unconsciousness which seized him before he was pushed from the car He looked for a light and saw one which seemed to be far away He realized he was losing blood fast aud started for it But he came into a slough and was afraid he would faint before he got through it so he turned back and wandered for several miles he thinks before
