Tall and Stout Han Is Only Description
Available of Person Who Was Seen
in Front of F. E. Smith's Broken
Window This Morning at 3.50 ,
A largo plate glass window in the
front of Frederick E. Smith's wholesale
Kquor store, Front and Trewick streets,
was badly broken about 3.50 o'clock
tlhis morning by a man described to be
tall and rather heavy, and six quart
■bottles of whiskey disappeared with
him when the robber hurried up Front
street to escape a fusillade of bullets
Which were sent in his direction.
The crash of the glass awakened Miss
Elizabeth B. Bowman, who, with her
mother, resides on tfhe cornor opposite
Smith's place of business. Instantly
she made an investigation, and dis
covering a man in the act of removing
the liquid gDods from t>he interior of
the broken window, she thrust her arm
out the open window and fired a shot
from a small revolver w!hich she had
close at hand.
The sound of the shot quickly
brought the owner of the place to a
froot window of the sleeping floor. By
thin time the robbery was completed
»n<! the man started up the street. Smith
sent a number of -bullets from "his re
volver after the fugitive, none of which
took eft'ect, and the man escaped.
What implement the man used in
breaking the heavy glass is unknown
for a ejose search of tflie vicinity re
vealeil nothing in the shape of stone
or hammer.
