Burglars Get a Good Roll and Leave

no Clue.

Will M. Morgan, a glass blower employed at Hemingrayís factory, was touched for $125 in a mysterious manner sometime between last Saturday and last Wednesday. Mr. Morgan resides with his parents at the corner of Eighth street and Macedonia avenue and last Saturday took the $125 home with him and gave it to his mother. It was contained in a small purse, and was in the shape of five $20ís; two $10ís and one $5. With this amount was $7.50 in small change contained in a small shot bag.

When he gave it to his mother she took it and put it in a wash stand in her sonís room and thought no more of it until last Wednesday when he asked for it that he might bring it to the bank. When his mother went to look for it it was gone but the thieves had missed the $7.50. On Monday morning Mrs. Morgan noticed that the wash stand had been opened but supposed that it was her son who had done it and thought nothing of the circumstance. A noise was heard about the house on Sunday night but no investigation was made. When the loss was discovered all traces of the burglary had disappeared and no clue is had as to who took the roll.
