Last Sunday rihr. while the
(leni.eis of the little village,
Cone, in the north part of the
county, were in peaceful slumler
some one entered the jiost office
and helped himself to of
I'ncle Sam's money. Early Mon
day morning II. II. Travis con
veyed Attorney W. K. Cranfonl
and sheritf ( ). Ii. ll".v to Cone in
his car, and th. , made investiga
tion as l'St ti'ey could, hut ar
'iveil at no (n.-.v as to who swiped
:lie money. It is believed, from
.vhat can he seen of the circuni--tances.
that the party who p-t
the money, knew just where it
was, and how to rct lit it. There
was some small change and some
.stamps that were left unmolested
the roblicr evidently lreinr sharp
enough to know letter than to
take away anything that would
give cause for suspicion in the
future. C. Littlefield. the rost
master, says he has no idea who
the miscreant could have been.
And he may never know. Cros
