Just something I ran across doing some research. I found this site:

http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/

You can search through old newspapers. I found that if you sort them into chronological order for a year you get a sort of history that you won't read in the history books.

Take a look at

http://www.okgenweb.org/~oklogan/clippings/clippings3.htm

I posted that last yesterday. Looks like I still need to do a little cleanup on it.

Some more of the story:

A BOLD RAID
And a Big Haul Made by Robbers In Dexter
Kansas Bank
Arkansas City Kan Sept 10-
News was received here of a bold raid
made this afternoon on the bank at
Dexter Kansas
At 1:35 o-clock Cashier Watkins was
alone in the bank. Two men with their
face concealed behind masks entered
the side door and withdrawn pistols
commanded the cashier to hand out the
money in the cash drawer and safe.
The cashier showed reluctance In
obeying but a bullet which went whiz-
zing past his head from a revolver per-
suaded him to obey and he handed out
$3,000 In currency. The robbers quickly
mounted their horses and rode away.
The shot fired attracted the attention
of the people on the street in the vicin-
ity of the bank, but before they could
locate the shot the robbers escaped.
A posse immediately started in pur-
suit of the bandits.

The Cashiers name is J. W. Watkins if it helps anyone.

CAPERS OF COWBOYS
They Compel a Bank Cashier to Give Up a
Large Amount of Money
ARKANSAS CITY Kan Sept 19--Word
was received from Dexter tonight that
while Cashier Watkins was alone in the
bank this afternoon two masked men rode
up entered and compelled the cashier to
give up $3,000 and fled. They are sup-
posed to be cowboys.

Didn't find anything more on the killing of the Sheriff.
