A Deaf And Dumb Sexton Robbed

George E. Fischer, the deaf and dumb sexton of the St. Mary's Avenue

Congregational Church, put out the lights and started for his boarding

house at 10 o'clock at night. He had gone but a short distance from the

church when he was pounced upon by unknown persons, who approached from

behind and knocked him down. After striking him another blow the fellow

went through his pockets, taking every cent he had. Fischer is a

hard-working man, but is in poor health, and will feel the loss

heavily.--Omaha World, May 24th, 1886.
