BEDFORD MAN IS MISSING
Lou Summers, a former boardinghouse keeper and junk dealer of Bedford, is missing. His daughter, Mrs. Lizzie Schoffstoll, says he has not been seen since April 22. He lived alone and when he did not make his customary appearances, his house was visited. The key was found in the front door, and his bed indicated that he had at least taken a nap on it. The house was locked up but was broken into the next day and thoroughly ransacked, numerous articles being missing. Foul play is feared as the old man is supposed to have carried money, and it is also supposed that he had money and other valuables hidden about the house.
