THE EMINENCE POST OFFICE ROBBED
The Current Wave
Sept. 24, 1884

On last Friday night the Eminence Post Office was entered by unknown parties and burglarized to the extent of between $20 and $25 worth of two-cent stamps, two registered letters, one addressed Theodore Norris and supposed to contain about $7, the other addressed to L. L. Munsell and should have contained $3.40. An entrance to the building was effected through a back window. The drawer containing the stamps, letters and mail key was removed to a pile of sawdust about 40 yards from the office, where it is supposed the thieves divided this plunder; the mail key and some one-cent stamps were recovered. Postmaster W. J. Randolph informs us that nearly every drawer in his drugstore (same building) was opened by the burglars and some steel tweezers and harmonicas stolen. We have not learned of any clues to the perpetrators.
