One of the boldest hold ups in the history of Des Moines occurred the other evening. H. R. Hyde of Winterset was the victim. He is an agent for the Des Moines Nursery Co. Mr. Hyde was knocked down and robbed about 5:15. He was dragged into an alley north of Court Avenue by his assailants and not found by the police until 9 p.m. Mr. Hyde is a large man about 45 years. He was assaulted by two men. A club or board was probably used. They took $35 in cash, a $45 watch and $100 diamond ring , also some bank checks that Hyde says amounted to about $55.
