Unknown parties robbed the Frigidaire at the J.O. Bennick residence early on the morning of the Fourth. The ice box stood on the back porch and when discovered in the morning by Mr. Bennick, it resembled Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. Mr. Bennick, in commenting on the theft, stated that he didn’t mind the loss of the food if the thieves were hungry but he did wish they would return the dishes. ... A deal was consummated last week whereby L.M. Rust became the owner of the Thomas Confectionery, which will be known in the future as Rusty’s Confectionery. Candies, popcorn, papers, cigars, cigarettes, etc. will be carried as before.
