BURGLAR WAS INTEKRITTED
Midnight Craftsman Discovered in the
ItcKidcnco of Mrs. K. Tllson and Escapes-Mrs.
In Trouble Again.
One of the boldest burglaries which
as ever been made on this side oc
curred yesterday morning at the home
of Mrs. E. Tilpon, 115 South Sumner
avenue. The house Is occupied by Mrs.
Tllson and her son-in-law and daughter,
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Shedd.
About 2.40 o'clock Mrs. Shedd was
awakened by a noise near the side win
dow of her room and was terrified to
see a man standing within a few feet
of her, rifiinir the bureau drawers. Shj
called her husband and the burglar
took alarm and hastily disappeared.
pon further investigation It was
found that the burglar had ransacked
he two top bureau drawers and taken
Mrs. Shedd's pocketbook which con
tained J2S. He had her gold watch and
diamond ring on the stand and Mr.
Shedd's trousers containing $CS ready
at hand to take with him, when fortu
nately Mrs. Shedd's screams compelled
him to escape before this action could
be carried out. Mr. Shedd's money' was
scattered about the lloor.
Mr. Shedd is employed at Duryea r.nd
s the treasurer of the mine accidental
fund. The burglar evidently wns aware
of this fact and thought that consider
able money was stowed away. Mrs.
Shedd was greatly overcome by her
fright, but is now nearly well. She de
scribed the perpetrator a3 being a tall
man in ilurl; clothes, but un to this time
le has not been captured. When her
iuuband went out to the porch yester
day morning to procure I1I3 Tribune, he
found the pocketbook which had con
tained the $:!0 In the yard, but the
money was gone.
Almost a Trugcdy.
On Monday afternoon Mrs. Maggie
Montgomery, a character well known
to the police, entered the store of Mich
ael Toohill on Jackson street, where she
has a habit of loafing. Mr. Toohlll has
tolerated these notions for a long time
and on Monday he resolved to stop it.
He told her that she must not loaf there.
Mrs. Montgomery refused to go out.
A scrimmage ensued, and as Mr. Too
hill is old and feeble, he was in great
danger. He rushed behind the counter
and procured a revolver. The woman
rushed at him and the revolver went off,
the bullet just grazing Mrs. Montgom
ery's shoulder. She then left the prem
