Burglars entered flvo different
places In Hawley early Sunday
morning and helped themselves to
anything and everything they want
ed. They secured enough to go
housekeeping, clothe themselves and
also to keep the Inner man from
starvation. It was a big haul and
Hawleyltes are (low wondering If
they will return. Three buildings
located at the Eddy, wcro entered,
two of which were hotels. At West
Hawley the ollieo of the coal pock
ets, In charge of Prank Stephenson,
was broken Into. Some old clothes
and a dress suit case were stolen.
They -were unsuccessful In securing
money. That the clothes would help
out and the suit case would come In
handy a little later was undoubted
ly their thought. Now for some good
old Green Valley Itye. The whole
sale store of Frank Karney was en
tered. But hard luck! Some bot
tles fell upon the floor and man's
best friend was aroused from a
peaceful slumber. Pldo barked. The
burglars did not dare to go any fur

thoughts of having a "gay old time"
vanished as Fido continued to Dane,

clars continued their unlawful
By the time they reached the
Eddy, unable to satisfy their appe
tites In West Hawley, they quietly
entered the Eddy Hotel, of which
Jacob Doetsch, late of Honesdalo,
Is proprietor. They went from one
room to another, leaving things In a
turmoil. No money was secured but
a fine ham was taken. Mr. Doetsch
did not hear the Intruders, but If
he had his "Dutch" would never
have been forgotten by the bur
glars. A stone's throw from the Eddy
Hotel Is locatea the Park View Hotel
and also Atkinson &. Quinney's store.
Both of these places were also bur
glarized. At the department store
they opened the safe and took a few
stamps intending to write to their
many Hawley friends, thanking them
lor their generous gifts and for
keeping asleep while they visited
their homes and stores. An um
brella was also taken from Messrs.
Atkinson & Quinney's store, un
doubtedly being afraid that they
might soli their newly stolen clothes.
Thinking perhaps that it was too bad
to carry the empty suit case another

The register was carried out of the

it was found undisturbed Sunday
morning. The landlady, Mrs. Caro

articles: Gold watch fob, valued at

In the hotel were up until after 2
o'clock and they claim that the bur
glary did not take place until after
that time. The hotel was filled with
guests and no one heard any noise
during the wee hours of the morn
ing. There are features connected with
the Hawley burglary similar to those
of the Waymart burglary of a month
ago, when the Canaan Corners Ho
tel was robbed of about $40 and the
drug store of Mr. Stewart, at Way
mart, was entered. Burglars en
tered the hotel at Canaan Corners
"by opening a window and then

door and carrying the cash erglster
out Into the orchard, where It
was found the next morning by the
proprietor. The time of the bur

Burglar Takes Gold Watch,
A burglar or sneak thief entered
the home of F. F. Schuller some
time during Saturday morning and
took a gold watch belonging to his
son Lloyd. The latter had attended
a dance the night before and instead
of going to his room on the second
floor he slept down stairs. The
eneak thief raised a back window
through which he gained entrance
and stole the watch. Lying near
the tlmcpleco was a diamond stick
pin and some money. Neither were
disturbed. It Is evident that some
one watched Mr. Schuller and fol
lowed him to his home. The watch
was a valuable one and was highly
prized by the owner.
Mr. Schuller's monogram was on
the watch and his full name, "Lloyd
