Lingo-Leeper Safe is Jimmied by Burglars
Burglars robbed the safe of the Lingo Leeper Co. of about $20 Saturday noon, leaving signs of their visit but no trace as to the perpetrators.
It was while Bert Fryer, the manager had gone to lunch. He had closed the safe door, but he did not lock it, also he locked the office and gates to the yard, but evidently the thieves entered through a hole in the fence. A jimmy was used to prize open a window, and the same tool was used to open the cash compartment of the safe.
Officers were quickly on the job, and think they have some idea as to who the thieves are.
Auto Burns in Country
Last Wednesday morning, John Green had the misfortune to lose his auto by fire.
He, with his wife, had been to town and had remained all night owing to slippery roads. They essayed to go home next morning, and got near his father’s place four miles north of town when they decided to go on in on foot.
Looking back from the home they discovered the car in flames. They managed to extinguish the flames by hard work, but the car was ruined, only two wheels and the chassis being saved.
