Store Broken Into

Store Broken Open
November 8 , 1889
Pg. 3

The grocery store of Mr. J. O. Midgett was broken open on Wednesday night by some unknown person. An enterance was effected by ripping off a plank near the rear door, through which opening the bar was removed. The only goods missed was a small lot of meat, some flour and tobacco. The lock money draw was taken from its place and the contents, amounting to 20 cents, pocketed. No clew to the guilty party has yet been found. So much for not having a night police.
