Attempts to rob Third Avenue residence frustrated. Sunday morning the residence of Selden McGaffey was entered but the sneak thief was frightened away. He gained entry by cutting the screen in a window on the north side of the house. Misses Bessie and Bernice McGaffey were asleep down stairs. The former was awakened by the man prowling about down stairs and called to her father. The intruder made his escape before Mr. McGaffey could get down from up stairs. Tracks were found the next morning leading toward town.
