Doc Saunder's barber shop was
broken into between 12 and 1 o'clock
last night and two razors were stol
en. Entrance was effected by push
ing in the back door. Nothing was
taken except the two tools, although
a number of other valuable hones and
Instruments were lying in plain sight.
This burglary is in the same class
with the recent series during which
only a few cents and a handful of
cigars were secured. There are two
theories advanced by Doc's friends,
one that some one liked the shaves
that the genial barber effected and
thought the razor was the reason, the
other that some one wished to get
even with the Doc for shaving him.
