Robbers blew open the safe of the Louisville post office early Saturday morning, and secured about $75. As soon as the officers arrived on the scene, they roped off a space around the post office, and telephoned to Concordia for Sheriff Moore’s bloodhounds. A deputy sheriff arrived in Manhattan Saturday night with the hounds, coming over from Junction City on an interurban car. He arrived here shortly after 8 o’clock and employed Pete Whitelock to take him and the hounds to Louisville. A crowd of several hundred people awaited their arrival there. Because no persons had been allowed to visit the post office and the space around it, the hounds had no difficulty in picking up the trail. The dogs followed the trail into Wamego and to the depot platform, where they sniffed the air and stopped. This proved conclusively that the robber or robbers had managed to get away on a freight train some time before daylight – Manhattan Nationalist.
