Notes or transcript:  “Wednesday night of last week the store of Corken Bros. was entered by a thief and the contents of the safe taken which was about $75 in cash. The thief was right at home in his nefarious calling and worked the combination like an old hand, both unlocking the safe and re-locking again. The thief entered the store room by way of a transom.”
