tion In Progress
Covington K March l The
Covington postoffice was entered by
burglars some time during last
night and about 8000 worth of

That it was a deliberate deeply
laid plan and the work of profes
sionals is proved by the neatness
anddispakh with which the job
was done
When John Salters one of the
stamp clerks arrived this morning
he noticed the Uxr leading to the
carriers department open which
nrniifpfl 1n siisinirirms nml i lilt
further investigation showed him
the cabinet containing the stamps
and postal cards with the doors
broken open and all the contents on
one side removed Holes had been
bored on each side of the locks and
the drawers then forced
The strange part of it is they left
about S700H worth of stamps be
hind
The supposition is that the bur
glar or burglars gained admission
into the place before S oclock last
night and hid under some newspa
per sacks A piece of cardboard
was placed against the wire netting
to shut otT inspection from the out
side
