Ikfflobbery Was Discovered at 7 O'clock
\i\~ and is Believed to Have Been
Commltted Before 6:20
O'clock.
The residence of M. F. Kins. Sr.,
1327 Orleans avenue, was entered
early last evening by some sneak
thief, and while the family was at
supper downstairs be ransacked the
upstairs rooms and took a consider
able sum of mcney.
Members of the family did not dis
cover the theit until 7 o'clock. The
police were notified. The robbery is
believed to have been committed
some time between 5:30 and 6:20
o'clock.
While the family were at supper a
noise was heard toward the front of
the house. When it was repeated an
investigation was made and going to
the front door one of the family saw
a man standing on the porch. She
thought he was going to ring the
doorbell, and waited a minute. Then
she called another member of the
household, and by the time they both
got to the door the man was gone.
They thought it was someone who
had come up on the porch to in
quire his w.iy and dismissed the
matter from ti-eir minds. At seven
o'clock when one of the members of
the family went up stairs, it was
found that the rooms had been ran
sacked. A roll of money belonging
to Mr. King, had been taken. In the
other rooms the thief had picked up
money in pocketbooks.
On investigation it was found that
the sneak tbief had opened a win
dow and screen on to the roof of
the porch, ovidently to make his get
away if disturbed in his prowl.ng.
Gow he entered the house is a mys
tery. There is little clue as to the
man's identity beyond the fact that
be wore a cap and dark clothes,

The amount taken as reported to
the police was over $100.
