VICTIMS OF PICKPOCKETS

A couple of Jasper parties were victims of the pickpockets at Carthage on show day. Uncle Thomas Davis was one, he was relieved of his pocketbook containing about $15.
He did not miss his money until he started home in the evening. He was in a number of jams of people and is certain his pockets were picked at one of those times.
Thad Stith, the well-known farmer living south of town, was also touched for $8.25, but he has no idea when or how he was relieved of his cash. Many other people report losing money that day.

BURGLARS BREAK INTO SABIN HOME

About 11:30 last Monday night Mrs. Bert Sabin of 2406 Patee street was awakened by a noise in her room and found two burglars were paying her home a visit. She screamed and the men made their escape, taking with them Mr. Sabin's pants which contained his gold watch which was given to him as a Christmas present from fellow employees where he works as an elevator conductor.
The scoundrels who robbed this hopelessly crippled man had effected an entrance by chopping out the screen on the back door, the ax with which it was done being found standing beside the door.

BOX CAR THIEVES OPERATING

Since the young bandit was shot and killed at Saxton four months ago, the box car robbery profession has lagged as the thieves feared further shootings, but it is now reviving and a few more killings are necessary.
