A. S. HASSAN'S STORE
Theft Discovered On Mrihday
Morning At Opening Time;
Loss About $400
On Monday morning when Mr.
A, 8. Hassan's store on Depot Street
was opened for business, the glass In
the front1 door was shattered. Sens
ing that something was amiss an
investigation was started and it was
soon learned that during the night
someone or a party of people had
broken into the store and made off
with a quantity of goods consisting
mostly of wearing apparel. Mr.
Hassan estimated his loss at around
$400, although a quantity of goods
was found at the back door, which,
apparently, it had been the Inten

something either scared them off be
fore it was taken out or they
couldn't carry it. At any rate It

TO A 0 TO 0 TIE
The Roxboro High Football Team
met the South Boston High aggre
gation on the local field Monday
and they battled to a 0-0 tie. Hie
local team, composed mostly of in
experienced players, had suffered
defeat at the hands of Reidsville
by the overwhelming majority of
41-0. the week before. The players
showed marked improvement to
hold the South Boston boys to a
scoreless tie, since it was the first
time that South Boston had failed
to come out on the long end of the
score in several years of playing
with Roxboro. Coach Heffner and
his boys will, no doubt, give the
fans something worthwhile this
year, Following is the remaining

profusion of beautiful flowers. If
you want to see something beyond

I fori the beautiful you will be more

in fact, we did not think it could
be equaled anywhere, but she told
