The Case of the Purloined Cash Box in 1917

From the June 28, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"One of the conductors of the DeKalb-Sycamore street car line was on his way yesterday afternoon at three o'clock, ready to turn in for the day.  His strong box containing tickets and money was in the rear of the car as usual.

"At Sycamore, there was a crowd of youngsters taken on an outing at Electric Park.  When the youngsters left the car, one of them took the strong box along, and for a short time the conductor was a triffle worried.  He went to the park on the next car, and with the aid of the school ma'am recovered the property."
