CENTRAL CITT, Neb., Feb. 19. (Spe-claLv-An
unsuccessful attempt was made
to rob the Farmers State bank at an early
hour this morning.
About 1:15 the night watchman was held
up by two masked men a block distant
from the bank. He was told to come with
them and make no disturbance and they
would 'not harm him. Arriving at the bank,
the door of which had been previously
opened by other members of the gang, the
watchman was taken to the bank parlor,
blindfolded and securely bound, hands and
feet, to a chair. The robbers then pro
ceeded to gain entrance to the vault with
a sledge hammer and they knocked the
dial off the door. ,
The bank Is protected by an American
bank protection burglar alarm. When the
dial was broken connection was made and
the alarms turned loose. The burglars
lost no time In getting away.
There were four In the party. They

Island. Near Chapman the car was
The alarm aroused parties sleeping near
the bank, who got busy wtth the telephone.
When the bank officials arrived they found
the night watchman securely bound. The
burglars' departure was so sudden that
they left their tools.
Evidently the burglars were not aware
of the fact that the bank was provided
wtth a burglar alarm or they expected to
cut the connections,
Tha Knights of Pythias were celebrating
their anniversary but three doors away
and had left their hall lesa than thirty
minutes before the attempted burglary.
In fact, the cashier of the bank, who was
on his way home from the lodge rooms,
met the two men who held up the night
watchman on the corner but i.few minutes
before the holdup.
There la no question but what the alarm
saved the bank.
