suddenly in tho bick of tho neck
with something that felt very soft.
Uu was of cnurso stunned by tho

as ho felt some one going through
bis pockets. Ho tried to make on
outcry but was too weak from the
blow. It was fully httoon min

movo. It was then that he ran to
the house, procured assistance and
started to search af tor bis assailant.
Of coarse this was useless and be
reported the matter at tho police

pieces and $30 in silvor had been
taken from him.

wages together with tho money he
bad collected from some of his
fellow workmen at the foundry
who hnd borrowed from him at
