Unknown thieves entered the Katy depot some time Sunday night and removed several express packages, one containing a watch of some value. The room was ransacked, papers being strewn everywhere. Entrance was gained by boring a hole near the night lock, by means of which a hand could be thrust through and the latch turned. County officers and railway detectives are on the job.
Last Friday evening about 7 o’clock Jim Goddard’s Ford truck and a Ford touring car belonging to Earnie Freeman of the Pleasant Hill neighborhood, collided on the highway in front of D. M. Wilson’s home.
Occupants of the car were five members of the Freeman family and the truck contained only Mr. Goddard. The only injuries received by occupants was a slight cut on Mrs. Freeman’s upper lip.
Damages to the machines were not serious- a broken windshield and small injury of radiator on Freeman’s car and demolished left front wheel, fender and tire on Goddard’s truck, It seems that the collision was an accident.
