the Calhoun Chronicle dated 9/26/1911.
A series of robberies have occurred in the lower end of this and the
upper end of Wirt counties in the past week or so, and two or three members
of what is supposed to be a large gang of outlaws have been arrested by
the Wirt county authorities. A man by the name of Richards, of this
county and a Geers and Boggs of Wirt county are in limbo, and other arrests
are likely to follow. Stores have been robbed, as well as farmers,
of almost every conceivable thing that had any value. Two or more
hiding places of the thieves have been found, where they stored the goods,
and each place had the appearance of a country store.
