Hampton Stores Robbed:

Three different places were entered by thieves in Hampton village early Monday morning, the aggregate loss estimated at over $700. The dry goods and novelty store of Mrs. E. E. Mason was entered by the rear window, apparently by the use of a tire iron, and goods consisting of shirts, hosiery, beads and the like carried off, to the amount estimated by Mrs. Mason of over $700. The spa and lunch room of Harold Green was broken into the same manner and five dollars in change which was in the cash drawer is all that is known to be taken. The Boston and Maine station was visited where a ticket punch was taken and the chewing gum machine rifled. It is thought the break occurred about day-break.
