Safe Blowing at New Sharon.
—New Sharon was visited Saturday
night hv burglars,evidently profession
als, and three safes drilled into and
blown open with powder. At Wat land
A Oattpll’s the outside door of the safe
was blown off. but only A3O in money
secured. W. P. Hawkins* lumlier office
was entered, the safe, lielongingto Mat
tison A Hitdw. opened, and the books
and }»apers scattered shout, hut no
money found. Kramer A Hammond met
with the most serious hiss. A large lot
of fine dress silks, valued at one
fine leather valise, and *8 in cash that
was in the till were taken. The burglar
proof chest iu this safe was not dis
turbed, and saved to the firm the STOO
in gold it contained. In each place
there seems to have lieen a hurried, but
thorough, search, and goods were scat
tered promiscuously about the rooms.
Theofiicers were promptly notified, and
ste|« taken to get upon track of the per
petratois. whose arrest we hope soon to
lie able to chronicle. A reWWd of $250
is offered, we understand, for the arrest
of the burglars.
PomtoVTICM Hours. — Some people
expect to find the |»ostofHce open at tail
hours of the day and night regardless
of conditions and circumstances. From
April Ist until October Ist the open
ing and closing hours are 7JO A. M. and
HOI) p. m. The Money Order window
o|iens at the morning opening hour
and closes at 5:30. Considerable grum
bling has Iwen heard of late because
of the office lieing closed so long for
the opening of the morning mails.
This cannot lie avoided, and if under
stood, would lie endured with a better
grace. At ten o'clock the largest mail
of the day is received and during its
distribution the K. A D. mail ftom
I Kith north and south arrive, and it is
a hard hour's work for four persons
from ten to eleven o’clock, to distrib
nte these three mails, all arriving as
they do, within an hour. W’e mention
this fact largely out of charity for the
next postmaster,—whoever he may be.
Sunday hours from 9:30 to 10JO A. M.
P. h. If you happen to find the post
office dosed a part of the day next
Saturday, please remember that the
FOURTH only comes once a year and
the hoys are entitled to a play spell.
