"Why he's only six months old , am
all last summer he was sick and
pulled him through with blood mcdl
cine. lie's bettor now and > on ar
going to tax him ? "
One lady confronted the oollcclo
with a story just opposite. "Why
have had that dog for thirteen years ,
she said , "and I never had to pay la
for him. Now in his old ago you ar
going to tax him. It's a shame a dir
grace to the city of Norfolk. "
"I'd advise farmers to leave the !
dogs at homo lest the dog catche
take the animals when Iho owners ar
in town , and end the canine lives ,

locked the door leading to his prlvat

door was locked when Dr. Cole n
turned. In the work room ho too
over an ounce of gold , but left Iw
sheets of gold In the same drawe

away tin' putty. They were piobably
frightened away by employes working
In the kitchen of the Merchants cafe.
The Ed Hecker cigar store was an
other goal for the thieves , a similar
attempt at burglary being made there.
The panes In the rear windows were
loosened , bill had they been taken out
the opening would have been too
small to allow an entrance and the
