TRIED TO ROB THE
Tbe Brave Postmistress Successful
Foils Tneir Plans.
Mrs. J. A. Croaeen not only proved
herself equal to the emergency in suc
cessfully preventing burglars from enter
ing tbe postoffice Wednesday night, but
also evaded the vigilance of the ever
present newspaper reporters, and cheat
ed them out of a first-class sensational
item yesterday. However, her . bravery
in this case totally precludes any com
plaint which might be made by us.
During th'e absence of Postmaster
Crossen, his wife has assumed charge of
tbe office, and Wednesday night her
duties kept her at her post until the
midnight hour, when she was engaged
in distributing the mail which came up
on tbe 11 :30 train. -Having no thought
of fear she paid slight attention to a
noise which once or twice came from
tbe direction of the window in the south
west corner of the. room, until it became
so loud as to startle her. Looking in
that direction she saw the large iron
windows being opened. As the glass
window is secured by iron bars, the
outside windows are frequently left no
clasped that the- night watchman may
open them and have a view of the office,
tbe bars preventing any one entering.
In a moment more two men appeared at
the window, with hats pulled down over
their eyes and high collars turned up
over their ears so that it was impossible
to recognize them.
Mrs. Crossen stood fora moment dumb
founded, but at once remembered the
telephone. Stepping to the 'phone, at
the eauie time. keeping her eye on the
man who bad his arm through tbe bars
attempting to raise the window, she
rang up the night watchman. .
. Evidently the culprits saw she had
the drop on them, as no doubt their
object was to raise 'tbe window, cover
her with their revolvers and demand her
to open the door, which of course tbey
could have done bad help not been
