The postoflice inspectors are working 011 the case, but there seems to be no clew to the robbers. It is thought that nothing of value was secured, al though every piece of mail was rifled by the bandits. The pouch was cut open and all letters opened. Checks, drafts and the like were not taken, the thieves apparently looking for cash alone. It is not thought that there was any regist ered mail of great value in the pouch. attempted holdup of the Coffaa brothers was made Wednes day evening of last week as they were leaving town. During the day they had cashed checks to the amount of about $400 and it is probable the bandits were, aware of this fact. As the boys were driv ing past the grove of the old Lilley nursery a couple of men stepped out of the shadows and command ed them to halt. Instead the driv er whipped up the horses and the other occupant fired a shot gun in the direction of the holdup men, but probably without effect. The Coffaa brothers are a husky lot and the bandits are probably fortunate that they did not come to close quarters with their intended victims. Lost.

For Rent at Lowest Prices We Expect to See You Dam at Pickerel Lake. Win. Ladd and crew are now engaged in building a cement dam at Pickerel lake, near the north end, where in the spring of the year there is an overflow into a creek emptying into Wau bay lake. Large numbers of fish pass out of Pickerel lake in high water and go into Waubay lake which is shallow and foul and where the fish do not prosper. The dam is being erected by the State and will surely serve to save the fish for the deep clear waters of Pickerel lake. The dam will have two 16 foot sections with a wing at both ends, one wing 56 feet long and the other 26 feet.—Webster World. Try an advertisement to in crease vour business.
