For the past week the Bazoo has had an article every morning with the above heading. Some time during Friday night, thieves entered Pat Slavens' saloon, on East Third street, and carried off a lot of cigars. Nothing else was touched. An entrance was gained by climbing over the transom in the front door. The robbers went out by the back door, opening it from the inside. There is no clue as to the perpetrators of the deed.
