Their was a shuffling sound in the room and two men tiptoed out. By the Aid of a Light burning in the Hall their retreating figures were reflex de in a Mirror in mrs. Kase s room. The reflection of the men was Only momentary and is adequate to convey any idea of the burglars appearance the men were heard to pass Down the stairs and out of the front door which they carefully closed after them. A search was instituted about the House to see what was missing. Or. Kase s purse containing $3.50 had been taken from the pocket of his pantaloons. This Money along with two umbrellas which the robbers were heard to take from a Rock in the Hall when they left so far As could be determined constituted the Booty. It was raining at the time of the burglary which perhaps suggested the theft of the two umbrellas.
