The Jasper News January 18, 1906 Pg2

TEN YEARS AGO

In its ten years ago column, the Carthage Press published the following account of an attempt to rob the Bank of Jasper.
" Burglars made an unsuccessful attempt to rob the Bank of Jasper owned by M.L. Reid of Carthage. Entrance was effected through a window and the burglars were evidently about to blow open the safe with powder when some hunters returning home late at night probably frightened them away. The would-be robbers stole a handcar at the Jasper depot and fled toward Carthage.
The handcar was found the next day dumped beside the railroad track in Kendricktown. Nothing was missing from the bank."

CLOTHING STOLEN AT DANCE

A $45 gabardine and other articles of clothing were taken by other than their rightful owners after the Student Council dance at Rothwell Gymnasium last Saturday night.
This is a second of a series of dances proposed to be given by the Student Council every Saturday night and they have not provided for a systematic method of checking the students' hats and coats.
A room was set aside this week for their outer garments, but they were not checked and each person used their own discretion in choosing the coats which they wore home.
