A. U. S. mail pouch was stolen

city, and taken to a box car in the
railroad yards at that place and
robbed of its contents after it had
been cut open. The postoflice
inspectors are working

to the robbers. It is thought that
nothing of value was secured, al
though every piece of mail was

was cut open and all letters opened.

not taken, the thieves apparently

this fact. As the boys were driv

out of the shadows and command

The Coffaa brothers are a husky

who arrived at Geneva, Switzerland,
from Strassburg insist that they are
true. They say that the prince is se

specialists from Berlin, they declare,
have arrived at Strassburg to take
care of him.

Large numbers of fish pass
