Corner 2d Ave. and 16th St.
Shortly after dark Saturday even
ing1 a burglar effected an entrance
through a rear window to the YVolt
mann residence, 533 Thirtieth street.
They had evidently been watching the
place and knew that nobody was at
home so they took their time and
thoroughly ransacked the place. Mon
ey seems to have been their main ob
ject, for they did not touch the silver
ware, and as there was no money in
the house they got nothing for their
Xothing dajj.ntedby the experience
they left the place and going at once
across the street to the residence of
Mrs. Angelica Tcgeler, which was al
so unoccupied, they proceeded to
break in. The window resisted their
efforts, and they broke a pane of glass
in order to get at the fastener on the
inside. The noise attracted the atten
tion of members of the family of C. J.
Larkin, who live just south' of the
'legeler home, and they telephoned an
alarm to the police.

The patrol wagon went to the scene
as quickly as possible, but the thieves
took fright at the investigation that
was made when the noise was heard,
and made their escape without secur
ing anything for their trouble.

The residence of C. 1. Hart. 1010
Twentv-first street, also suffered a
visitation during Saturday evening.
There was no one at home at the

evidently rather for money than for
valuables. In the absence of Mrs.
Hart, who is out of the city, it is im
possible to ascertain just what was
taken. A set of pearl handled silver
knives and forks is missing and was
probably secured by the housebreakers.-
