An officer's life is not the safest ia the world. Patroluiau Isbell has just had an experlence which proves this. Two women from Monroe have established a candy store next to Baniield's slioe shop on State steret. The.y sleep in a room back of the store. At 2 o'clock Friday morning Patrolmaa Isboll was making his rounds on State street and trying the doors to see that all were locked. When he tried the candy store door he found it unlocked. He opened it a little ways and called out "Helio, there." Quick as a flash carne a revolver shot and then another. Isbell dodged back and in an instant out came the two owners of the store attired for the night, and locked the door. Seeing that they were the owners of the store and were also too excited to understand that he was an officer, he 'retired from the scène. Unless the officers can be assured of mot being shot at for doing their duty that candy store won't get mucb pólice protection.
