Grocery store Robbed
Burglars broke into the Garden Tracts Grocery some time during Wednesday night and carried away groceries and merchandise to the value of $40 or $50. Among the goods taken were two sacks of sugar, some flour, cigarette papers, and other articles.
From indications it is apparent that the thieves entered through a window and probably passed their plunder out through the back door. There is no clue to the perpetrators.
A reward of $50 will be paid for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of the party or parties who broke into our Garden Tract store on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning and took there from a quantity of groceries.
Editors meet in South Bend
State Newspaper Men are guests of sister city this week.
The Washington State Press Association is in session at South Bend for the last three days of this week. The regular program was to have begun at 10 o' clock yesterday morning but owing to the fact that most of the delegates did not arrive until the afternoon train came in, the work of the Association was taken up last night and as much of the day's program carried out as possible. The topics for discussion yesterday included opening remarks by the president A. A. Smith. "The public press and the public health," by Dr. Eugene R. Kelly, state health commissioner; a discussion of the contempt law and the publication of delinquent tax lists, and an address by miss B.I. Beals, secretary of the state Tuberculosis Association.
