      (By International News Service)
      KINGFISHER: -- With the death here of Mrs. Adeline Dalton, the last physical trace of the notorious Dalton gang passed. Mrs. Dalton was the mother of four boys who terrorized the Indian territory in the last decade of the nineteenth century.
      They were Emmett, Grat, Bill and Bob Dalton. All were killed later.
      The gang was noted for its daring. It leaped into the limelight with the robbery of a Santa Fe train at Red Rock in 1891.

      MOTHER OF DALTONS DEAD
      Kingfisher, Okla. -- Mrs. Adeline Dalton, 94, mother of the "Dalton brothers," notorious in the early nineties as a result of their raids on banks in Oklahoma and northern Kansas, died Saturday at the home of her daughter. There were nine boys in the Dalton family. Among those who became desperadoes were Emmett, Brat, Bill and Bob. Their first escapade was the robber of an Atchison, Topeko and Santa Fe train at Red Rock, Okla., in 1891. Then followed a series of robberies along the Kansas-Oklahoma border. The gang was practically wiped out in a raid on two banks in Coffeyville, Kas., a year or two later, when Emmett was captured and Grat and Bob were said to have been killed.
