Catch Thieves In
Carl Leopard, charged with
breaking, entering and larceny, was
bound over to Superior court for
trial at a preliminary hearing in
magistrate's court here on last Fri
Leopard, with Mark Stamey, the
latter has not yet been apprehend
' ed, are alleged to have been enter
ing and stealing from the store of
Burgin Brothers at the depot for
the past several months.
The owners had been missing ar
ticles of food and clothing for some
time and could find no clue as
to who was stealing from them, so
they decided for one of the mem
bers of the firm to sleep in the
building in the hopes of catching
the guilty parties.
On Saturday night, Nov. 21st,
Hurst Burgin started sleeping in
the building, and on the night of
the 25th, he was aroused about
12:20 by sounds of someone trying
to get into the basement. He heard
continued sounds as the unknown
parties made their way across the
basement into the store.
It took them about 40 minutes to
get into the main floor of the
building, according to Mr. Burgin.
They came up into the store
through a ventilator 14 by 16
inches, which they very carefully
placed back each time and its
temporary removal was not noticed
the next day by the owners. Mak
ing their way in one part of the
basement they had to crawl
through a 12 by IS inch passage in
order to reach the ventilator
In the meantime Mr. Burgin had
made arrangement with the tele
phone operators that when he took
down the receiver they were to
call the officers. So he bided his
time until the boys were busy at
work, and then lifted the receiver.

If I could unfold the mystery of life
And the glory of God in His might,
Would I not be the unchallengeable Being
Or a new Power, unknown and all-seeing?
If I could defy the cosmic force
Its myriads of scintillas and their baffling source.
Would I not be the science of space
Or the inexhaustible energy of the unknown plaee?
If I could conquer the mighty sea
With all its treasure and vast energy.
Would I not be the undying force
Or the stars that guide my far-away course?
If I could encircle the heavenly sphere
The Angels and Saints and everything there,
Would I not be the insuperable law
Or the rainbow shining from God's back door?
If I could destroy the whole universe
With malignant gas and unholy curse
Would I not be a symbol of effulgent light
Or just a blind worm that hides in the night?
If I could re-incarnate my whole life through
And sack again the gold from Christian and Jew,
Would that make me a god on the earth
Of merely a "jerk" from the day of my birth?
