DARING ROBBERY AT EARLY HOUR YESTERDAY MORNING TAKES PLACE AT rouniAui CITY. WOOLMAII & THOMAS' SAFE Is Dynamited and Fifty Dollars Se curedThieves Were Experts. (Special to the Palladium.) v Fountain City, Dec. 9. This peace ;ul little town was startled this Xfiorning to learn of a daring and successful robbery of a safe in the "roeery store of Woolman & Thomas. The robbery is believed to have oc curred about two or three o'clock this morning and there is not a clue or a suspicion as to who the thieves are. The robbery is believed to have been the work of experts for the "job" was done in a neat and skill ful manner. The robbers entered the store by breaking in the glass in the front door, and after gaining admittance this door was unbolted, probably to make escape easy in case of detec tives. The door of the safe was next dynamited, blowing it all ovar the room, but so skillfully that not a soul in the village heard a sound. Mr. Thomas stated this afecnoon that about $50.00, including 600 poi nies and $10.00 worth of old coins, .was taken and $25,00 mostly in sil Fver, left on the floor. This gives rise .to the suspicion that the store was saved from farther pillage because the thieves evidently thought they heard some one coming and i'i iheh haste to escape left the money lying on the floor. No strangers were seen in or about the town Thursday and no res ident of this place is suspected so the officers are at a loss howto pro ceed with the case. Several people this morning reported that at an early hour before day break they heard a horse and buggy pass through the town, going at a fast pace. The impression among some is that the robbery 'was committed by two or more people who drove in to the city after midnight, commit ted the crime and then drove rapidly away. ..

The statement of President Kelly was as follows: "At the beginning of next year, Earlham will have a permanent phy sical director. He will be a man ompetent to take charge of all forms of athletics and also will serve as a director of the physical culture classes in the gymnasium. Moreover he will be a man thoroughly ac quainted with athletics as they are aught and played in Eastern col eges. I am not at liberty to give t i ? out Jus name .lust now. out it nas een definitely decided that he will )e here next year.
