BURGLARIZED

Parksville, Mo., Mar 19.-- The store of C.P. Summers & Son, was entered last night, sometime after midnight, and rifled of a good many valuable pieces of goods; also of tobacco and cigars, in great quantity.
The entrance was made by the rear way, the thief or thieves having to pass two doors before they could reach the main store room. This was done by the use of crow bars and drills procured at a quarry close by. The loss can hardly be estimated.
