An ineffectual attempt was made to
burglarize tho Tramp storo on Front
street Monday night about 12:30. As
Policeman Trout was making his rounds
and had turned the corner of Locust

from the entrance to tho Tramp store,
one cutting across the street toward tho
U. P. tracks, the other running down
Fropt. Trout immediately telephoned
Mr. Tramp, who came over and in com
pany with Trout examined tho door. It
was ojind that the facing to the latch
had been unscrewed, aniTtho Mcli had
dropped from the socket, allowing tho
lower portion of the door to bo sprung
enough to unloosen the floor bolt on the
twin door. Tho burglars, however, had
not reckoned that there was a lock
above tho latch, and it is probable that
they were working on this when fright
ened away by Trout's appearance.
A fresh snow had fallen, and tho fel
low who had crossed tho street was
tracked to the hotel lnundry where ho
had evidently entered. No tracks
leaving tho laundry could bo found.
