After passing up Postville for a Good Long time burglars entered two of Postville s business houses during wednesday night de Durno s hardware and the Douglass pharmacy being the places entered but not much was taken from either store so far As has yet been -.discovered,. The Durno hardware was the first place entered Entrance being effected by prying out the door to the Ware room far enough so As to enable the intruders to reach in with a stick and raise a Hook out of a Staple and was a comparatively easy Job. The warehouse joins right on to the Mam Sto e Bui iding and the burglars then approached the rear door to the store which was secured from the inside by a piece of 2x4 lying in two Iron brackets the burglars Cut a Small Hole through this door near the Block which enabled them to pry same out of the brackets and the rest of the Job was easy for they were then in the store. So far As or. Durno. Has been Able to discover All that was taken from his store was in the neighbourhood of two Dollar s Worth of pennies left in the Cash Register Anu this was left open As it is every night. The burglars borrowed a Brace and bit from or. Durno s store with which to bore holes in the rear door at the Douglass pharmacy which enabled them to reach a hand through and slide the Bolt which held that door closed after which they returned the tool to the hardware in the Douglass pharmacy so far As is yet determined All that was taken was a Small amount of change from their Cash Register which also is always left open at night.
