On last Friday night the banking
house of the Metz Banking Co. was
entered by burglers, the safe blown
open and about $2,000 stolen.
The safe was ruined but the build
ing, which is a new and substantial
brick structure, was not hurt. A
number of the citizena were awak
ened by the explosion but the rob
bers had secured their booty, and
were gone, before thev could be
captured. It is believed there were
three of the party and that they
went west towards Fort Scott in a
rubber tired buggy. Tbe tools us
ed were stolen from the Mo. Pac.
tool house. The tank i a branch
ot the Rich Hill bank and on Satur
day morning Mr. W. F. Tygard,
the piesidcut, took the necessary
funds down lo replace the amount
stolen and the bank opened at once
for business as usual. The bank is
fully insured in ihe Ranker Pro
tection Association. A reward of
$1,000 i offered for Ihe capture
and conviction of the burgler, and
their apprehension 1 probably only
a question of time.
