ROBBERS CAPTURED Mr John Marks came in Tuesday evening in company with Deputy Marshal N B Elliott, who had in custody three men charged with robbing Mr. Marks' store at Lumhee, near Wetumka, late Friday evening. Just about sundown Mr. Marks went over to supper and left Will Anderson, the clerk, in the store. He had not more than left when a stranger came in and asked to look at a pair of boots. After talking awhile with Anderson about the boots he concluded that he would like to inspect a pair of overalls. As Anderson reached to get the overalls he heard a noise behind him, and when he turned around he was told to hold up his hands. Anderson did not think that position would be very comfortable and hesitated somewhat. Just then two others came in and insisted that he do as instructed, and that p.d.q. Then they marched him out from behind the counter and had him to take a seat on a box until Mr. Marks could get back from supper, as Anderson did not know the combination. Presently Mr. Marks walked in whistling, unconscious of what was going on until he was confronted by a six-shooter. They at once ordered the safe opened, which order was promptly complied with, and the contents taken, amounting to about $170, besides what cigars, tobacco and other things they carried off. When they got all they wanted Marks and Anderson were ordered to mark time to the woods, taking the lead, while they brought up the rear with their winchesters pointed towards them. They were marched about a mile from the store and told to "hit the grit." Just before they released them they asked if they had heard of the Brown Bros. robbery some time ago. Mr. Marks answered in the affirmative and one of them remarked: "We are the boys that did the job. Now it is you and our next victim will be T H Scales of Wetumka. You may send word to Scales to that effect if you wish to." An alarm was sounded as soon as Marks returned and a posse organized and started in pursuit at sunrise Saturday morning. They went at once to the place where they turned Marks loose and followed the tracks for fifteen miles, and arrested Tom Wynn, Tom Jefferson and Pearce Jefferson at the house of one Beckahm. The two Jefferson boys were asleep at the time, while Wynn and Beckham were away from home. The prisoners were hurried off down below the house and Marshal Elliott secreted himself in the house until Wynn came in and laid his winchester on the bed. The officer at once covered him and demanded his "hands up." The ground was so soft that they were tracked the entire distance easy enough. The gang arrested are said to be a tough element and Mr. Marks says he has fully identified them. $1.85 of the money was postoffice funds. Other people in the country are thought to be connected with this band of robbers and outlaws. None of the money was recovered.
