Between three and four o'clock Thursday morning five masked men blew open the safe of the Farmers State bank at Glentana and escaped taking with them $2,200.00 in cash and ?2,700.00 in Liberty bonds together with a grist of other valuable papers. J. J. Carroll, who resides in a small house next to the bank was awakened by the explosion, which not only de molished the safe, but partially des troyed the bank building. Carroll was unarmed and did not give the alarm until some time after the robbers had completed their work and departed. He stated that there were five men in the gang and heavily armed and masked. The robbers made their escape in a high powered car which had been parked in a pasture about a mile out of town. Before entering Glentana all telephone wires had been cut in sev eral places and it was necessary to re pair the lines before word could be telephoned into Glasgow. Immediate ly upon receipt of word at the sher iff's office here the alarm was sent out to all points in Montana and North Dakota as well as southern Sas katchewan and a posse was started out of Glentana to try and track the car in which the robbers made their escape. There is little clue to the iden tity of the erobbers except the fact that the officers know the make of car they were driving. The loss to the bank is fully covered by insurance as to money loss, but the officers are unable to state just what the condition of the valuable papers were and what their loss might be on this account. Cashier H. O. Morgan was in Glas gow on the morning of the robbery, coming down to meet C. J. Lofgren, president of the bank, who arrived on the morning train. 58,850 AUTOMOBILE LICENSES ARE SOLD DURING YEAR 1922 Helena, Auer. 29.—Montana officials absolutely fail to agree on the number of automobiles in the state.
