Wednesday morning as P. Johnson got up to start the fire he came face to face with a burglar at his bedroom door. The burglar backed off, and Mr. Johnson acknowledges that he did likewise.

Nothing in the house was disturbed, but one can well imagine that it was not a pleasant experience for Mr. Johnson and his family.
