BURGLARY THURSDAY NIGHT.
Mr. R. I. Manning's Residence Rob
bed During Absence of Family.
The residence of Mr. R. I. Manning
was entered by a burglar Thursday
night, who effected an entrance
through a window. The burglar ran?
sacked the hoase from top to bottom
and deposited the articles that he col?
lected in a pile on the floor of the
hall, where they were found by Mr.
Manning when he returned from Co?
lumbia on the 7:20 train. The bur?
glar had evidently been frightened
while ransacking the house and left
hurriedly without stopping to earn
the goods collected. He did not go
empty handed, however, for Mr. Man
ring found a silver fork on the
ground ber.oath the open window, u
ooon in the yard and another fork
.it the fence over which the thief had
.lumped in his flight.
Mr. Manning is unable to determine
exactly what was taken from the
house, for he does not know how
much silver was left in the sideboard
when the family went to their sum?
mer home at Saluda several weeks
ago. The loss may have been con
iderable, or the burglar may have se?
cured only a few articles.
The robbery was committed during
the night for the electric light in the
lining room had been turned on by
the robber and it was still burning
when the robbery was discovered next
