THE OMAHA DAILY BEE, Nebraska, Sept. 26, 1893 The ftpg. has a nice, full column report on a train robbery headed at the top: "ON THE WRONG TRAIN" "Express Robbers in Missouri Who Didn't Know It Was Loaded" "Successful Trick of the Authorities" "Sent Out a Dummy Train in Charge of Well Armed Officers" "Desperate Battle Waged in the Dark" '"Bandits Refused to Surrender & Fought Stubbornly to the Death" "Two of Them Killed in the Fight" and a bit more, with several subheads. The article carries over to pg. 2 as well.
Very nice, detailed account of a train robbery--but it was the wrong train.
