ROBBING THE POSTOFFICE.
A Burglar Did Poor to orfc to’llh His
Auger at Dublin.
Dacatur. Ga., Nov. 8. This week
there was nn unsuccessful and very
bungling attempt made to roll the De
catur postofflee. inspection shows that
the burglar was some one familiar
with the arrangements of the inside
fastenings. The wooden shutter to the
' window on the east side fastens within
l>v a sliding bolt. The burglar’s effort
was by boring with an auger through
the woofl to make a hole In such po
sition as would enable him to run his
finger through, turn the bolt, slide It
back and open the window. The first
hole struck about an Inch and a half
above the bolt. This was out of reach.
The next was just an Inch below the
holt. It Is not known why he did not
continue his, efforts, but his courage
probably failed him or a noise fright
ened him off. It was hoped he would
repeat the visit as arrangements are
new complete for his reception, but he
1 has decided to postpone the attempt
| a little while longer. The clues to the
burglar's identity are such as will not
improbably result at an early date in
