POLICE PUZZLED OVER REPORT
OF DIAMOND ROBBERY
Police of the West Chicago avenue
station are' puzzled over the sensa
tional $55,000 robbery story told by
Daniel Epner, a New York diamond
salesman, last night.
Epner rushed into the station
shortly after 8 o'clock last night and
said that he had held up at Milwau
kee and Grand avenues by two men
who threw red pepper in his eyes and
then robbed him of sample case of
jewelry and a pouch of diamonds.
He said that the man had followed
him -from 12th and Halsted streets.
They got off the car when he did and
shoved a revolver ilrhis face,, after
which they threw the pepper.
The corner of Milwaukee and
Grand avenues is crowded at 8
o'clock in the evening, but no one has
been found who witnessed the rob
niery. Epner was a traveling salesman for
his brother, S. Epner, New York.
When they have their pictures
taken people try to look pleasant.
Why not wear that look all the time?
It will shorten no man's life! Knox
