The top stories in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald on this date 92 years ago:

Thieves pull off nervy job

Burglars worked in this city again last night, entering and robbing the saloon of Emil Lieber, corner of East Seminary Street and Court Place.

The thief gained an entrance to the saloon by breaking a pane of glass in the front door and crawling through the opening.

Money seemed to be the only thing desired by the thief, as no raid was made on the large stock of liquors carried by Mr. Lieber. The money draw was rifled and several dollars taken, the exact amount secured not being known to Mr. Lieber.

Body of suicide reaches home

The body of Emenzo Weaver, who took his life in a sensational manner at Toledo Wednesday night, arrived in the city over the LS&MS Railroad at 8:40 o'clock this morning.

The body was taken to the undertaking rooms of Lalable & Brady, where private services will be held, after which the body will be shipped to Nevada, Wyandotte County, where interment will be made in the cemetery where his parents are buried.

The body will leave Norwalk at 6 o'clock, Lake Shore Electric, Saturday morning. Funeral services at Nevada at 10 o'clock.

Sues for auto commission

G.E. Rhinemiller of Huron has filed suit in the court of common pleas against Ed McMahon of Bellevue in which he sues for his commission on the sale of an Oldsmobile.

The petition recites that McMahon bargained for the machine April 18 last, making a payment of $50 on the purchase price of $1,285. The machine was to be delivered on or about May 10, but at that time, the petition states, McMahon refused to receive the car and pay the balance due.

Rhinemiller claims his commission on the sale was 25 percent of the purchase price, or $321.25 and he sues for the difference between the $321.25 and the $50 paid at the time the bargain was made, which is $271.25.
