oni ut eein ed ecth oth ent DAVENPORT REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY, APRIL 14, 1901. NOT UNDER GENERAL STORE. * . . . · Stolen Goods From Dennis Store At Princeton Were Found Under An Old Building. WIFE IS VERY INDIGNANT. Burglars entered the large general sore of J. D. Dennis at Princeton, la., one night this week and secured $75 worth of goods, mostly clothing and groceries. This was the second time the Dennis store has been robbed during the last two mouths. The articles stolen the first time were found under Jj. R. Walker's general store by some carpenters making repairs on the floor.* The thieves had evidently concealed their booty there until a favorable time should come to remove it. The above item appeared in the Republican of March 29, and the information contained therein was understood to be absolutely authentic. Since then, however, it has been learned that the stolen articles were not found under Mr. Walker's general store, but under the floor of an old building owned by him, and which was being repaired under his directions. Mr. Walker at once informed Mr. Dennis of the find, and an attempt was made to apprehend MRS. KNIPHALS ASKS FOE SEPARATE MAINTENANCE. Says Husband Wants Divorce In Order That He May Marry Another Woman--Alleges Variety of Offenses and Claims He Contributed Just Ten, Dollars to Her Support In Over Three Years.

CUT THROUGH DOOR PANEL Charles CosgTove Breaks Into the Daly Grocery and is Likely to Go Over the Road. Yesterday Mrs. Kniphals, by her attorney, Louis Block, filed an answer and a cross petition for separate maintenance. The answer is a denial of the offense alleged.

Ten Dollars In Three Years. Chas. Cosgrove'is in custody and on Monday will be turned over to the grand jury for the latter to investigate a charge of breaking and entering. As this is not his first offense it is probable that he will go over the for his persistent crime. Yesterday morning when the Daly Grocery store on Brady and Thirteenth streets was opened it was discovered that some one -had been through the place during the night. The panel of a rear door was cut out and strewn about. But the thief did not get what he was after. There was nothing in the cash drawer except about 34 cents in pennies and these were taken. Some tobacco was also missed, but nothing else seemed to be gone. The facts communicated to the police at once, and James McManus and Detectives Wafers and Peers examined the earmark^ that the burglar had left behind. Learning that Cosgrove had been in the store the day before, and acted strangely, they proceeded to look for film. When found he had 27 pennies in his pocket and at his home several large plugs of tobacco of the brand that was missing were found. Break- NOTICE.
