Pliotie S-6MH CARKFUL CttOOKS GET LITTLE CASH FOR PAINS Meticulous burglars got only $14.55 for their pains in entering R home on Main street over the weekend. Mr. and Mrs. Everett Sehudel of 809 Main said they discovered the theft on their return Sunday, 10 p.m., from their summer cottage near Nutwood.

She noted that as soon as she stepped inside the door. Twelve dollars ' were taken from a bedroom dresser, $1 from a kitchen cabinet and 55 cents from a kitchen drawer, police said.

I IREMEN RACE TO HOME, FIND BUGS CAUSE SCARE Milton Volunteer Fire Department members .were called out about noon Saturday to check an alarm that turned out to be something less than reported. The fire truck rushed to the liome of Mr. and Mrs. Homer Markel, 3203 Edsall Ave., after a neighbor called and said, "You'd better come, the smoke is just a-booming out of the house." Firemen were experienced and knew if that was so they had a tough fight on their hands. When i hey arrived the smoke was still "a-booming." But the first sniff caused the firemen to call off the dogs. "It smelled like sulphur," one of them said this morning, "and we had been in that situation below." What had happened was that when Mr. and Mrs. Markel got up that morning they "saw a big spider" in the house and decided to fumigate. They burned several sulphur candles after locking the house. Then they and their two children left for the day. The fumes were supposed to stay in the house for about six hours. When the sulphur smoke begun to wisp out of the windows the alarmed neighbors, who did not know about the fumigating, called the fire department. Firemen entered the house anyway. "Things have been so slack lately we needed the practice," one of them said, One of the firemen who did not enter had his own interpretation. "Those guys that went In there are getting their lumps these days. This one fellow on College avenue called to tell about a friend of his who came from Minnesota to live here three years ago. "I heard so many gripes about the terrible summers in Alton from this fellow," this guy said. What kind of answer could you have \vhen the thermometer was tickling the high 90's and in that one gosh-awful summer when it rose above 100 regularly and on one day hit 113? But now the "new" arrivals are getting it back double strength. What we are having this year is typical of this area's summers, they are being told. You just got here at the wrong time. There must be dozens of these people who got their first look at an Alton summer through those torrid recent summers. Thi? fellow on College says he sure at the sights, a guest said.
