Last week the Zeitung, the German paper of this city, rounded out the 68th year of its usefulness and this week entered upon volume 69. During these years it has recorded the birth, marriage and death of lots of people and recorded events that have long since passed from the minds of many. During the late war it was indeed Amen can, being one of the very few German publications printed in this country that were allowed to pass through the mails without first a copy being translated and left with the local post master. It is a well patronized, as it should be, clean fair-minded competitor and one that it is a pleasure to have in our midst.
Some time Monday night the Pfeuffer store was entered and more than $300 worth of goods stolen. Three men’s suits were taken, as well as razors, knives and a few other articles. An entrance | was gained through an upper window, the putty from one pane being scraped off and by thrusting a hand through and unlocking the window. Before leaving the intruders helped themselves to a lunch of cheese and crackers and other food of like kind. . . .Two young men just before closing time entered the store and bought some $6 worth of overalls and this money was placed in the salesman’s book who made the sale and the
• book laid under the counter, the safe being closed on account of the lateness of the hour. This money was taken from
• the book by the robbers, this being all the cash get-at-able. It is supposed the
• same parties who made these purchases i arc the ones who took the money and the
articles missed. The upper story of the building was reached by climbing a tree I that stood near the building and once ! on the roof of the one-story addition it was an easy matter to gain an entrance to ; the main part. An exit was made by unlocking a door to the grocery depart-; -ment This is the third time this store has
• -been entered by thieves.
