ROBBED FREDDI E YAGER'S SAFE.
Five Dollars Secured During the Bartender's Temporary absence - Residences Entered.
     E. Pluribus Unum Clay,  Edward Dunn and Leroy Potterfield were arrested yesterday morning by Detective Marks.  Dunn has been working for Freddie Yager, and yesterday morning when the bartender opened the store Dunn came in and began scrubbing the floor.  The bartender opened the safe to get some money with which to pay the ice man, and did not relock it.  He went into the back room, leaving Dunn still at work.  Dunn opened the safe and took from it $5 in quarters.  He took the money and gave it to Clay, and told him to keep it.  When arrested by Detective Marks, he denied it, but when Marks threatened to lock him up anyway he confessed and told Marks and Clay had the money.  The men have been on the bum and came here from Greenview, Miss.  A charge of larceny was made against Dunn, and Clay and Potterfield are charged with being accessories.

HUNGRY BURGLARS.
    
Burglars who were evidently hungry entered the residence of Deputy Sheriff Charles Seaman, No. 624 South Fifth Street and cleaned out the pantry.  It is supposed to have happened early yesterday morning.  They gained admittance to the house through the pantry window.  Nothing but edibles were taken.

THESE THIEVES WERE HUNGRY, TOO.
    
When Harry McGrue's "chef-de-cuisine" waltzed gaily out to the summer kitchen yesterday morning to prepare the breakfast, she found that some measly tramp had crawled through the window and carried off everything but the stove, and a small but vigorous army of indignant flies.  "By golly," she said, when she went over to a neighbor's house to borrow enough to keep the family from starving until the stores opened, "they took a side of breakfast bacon, ten pounds of lard, nearly a dollar's worth of sugar, all the flour, and, in fact, everything that was fit to eat; enough, indeed, to last us a whole week.  I just wish that I could have caught the scamps," she added, as she went out, and it is lucky for the thieves that Molly failed to meet them.
Mr. McGrue lives at No. 822 East Capitol avenue, and he is mad, too.
