MILLINERY STORE OF
MISS F. M. WOOLLEY
ENTERED BY ROBBERS
But They Got Away With Only Ahout
$3 In lash—Entered Bear
Window.
A burglar or burglars, who have
been plying their robbery pranks for
the last several weeks, are at it again.
Sometime between Saturday night
and this morning the millinery store
of Miss F. M. Woolley, corner of West
street and Church Circle, was entered,
but all that the thief or thieves got
away with was about $3 in cash, ac
cording to Miss Flora Wooley, pro
prietor of the establishment.
The store was entered by the rear
window, Investigation disclosed. The
party or parties had climbed over a
sharp picket fence on the wall of a
moat between the Advertiser Building
and the millinery shop, unless pos
sibly they had secreted themselves in
the shop before closing hour Saturday
night. The upper sash of a rear, win
dow in the store had been broken,
making an aperture just large enough
for some one to insert their fingers j
and release the window latch, as the,
window was locked Saturday night.
Miss Wooley found that $3 in small j
change had been taken from the cash
drawer. • Something over |5 which j
had been left In a small box near
where the entrance was effected, ap
parently escaped the ransackers, as it
was intact; nor were any hats or
other women’s garments missing, as
far as could be ascertained by Miss
Woolley. The robbery was reported
to the city police officials, but it is
understood they have no clue thus far.
Tire husband who objects to his !
wife using cosmetics forgets that a
woman merely paints her own fafce, j
while a man wants to go out and paint,
the whole town.'
