The hardware store of Coffman, Bobbitt & Sparks was entered by burglars some time Saturday night. Entrance was effected thru a skylight and articles of considerable value were taken. Quite a number of watches, several dozen pearl-hanUlcd pocket knives and a number of manicure sets are missing.
The midnight visitor emptied the cash drawer of about ten dollars in cash, but left a collection or pennies untouched. He passed up revolvers and the larger kind or pocket knives, contenting himself with the fanciest articles in stock.
Inasmuch as a man sleeps in this hardware store every night, but was absent Saturday night, it ie probable that the burglar is a local character who understands the mr rangements of the company.
