Norman, ledger keeper; A Hunter, the janitor, and J. A. Simp- son and A. Sears, who was standing in front of the tellers cage, who had just made a deposit. With the lower part of their faces covered with" handkerchiefs, the men dashed, into the front of tlie office. Two dashed into the manager's office and got behind the teller's cage. A man, evidently the leader, presented a gun under the, nose of Mr. Rhodes, while the other pushed the teller out of the cage, and grabbed all the money on the desk and some from the cash drawer.

In way that all other nations of the 'world may .freely do." In view of the fact.
