07 12       COAT STOLEN

Last week Thursday evening a new $25 overcoat belonging to Thos. P. Moore was stolen out of the C &N.W. Ry. depot.  The coat hung behind the door of the depot office, and while the office help were busy closing up the business of the day, a tramp slipped in the door and took the coat.  He was seen leaving the depot with a coat on his shoulder by the section men, but before it became known that he had stolen it, he disappeared.    WG
