[Allen County Democrat, Dec 20, 1889]

A mysterious suit case, containing a whole wardrobe of wearing apparel and other valuable effects, secreted in an open field just south of the Erie tracks which was uncovered yesterday, has given the police a mystery to unravel. The suit case was discovered yesterday by Mrs. Van Zent while she was gathering "greens" in the field near her home. She brought the satchel to police headquarters where a quiet investigation is being conducted. A new suit of clothes, several shirts, neckties and numerous other valuables were found inside the grip. Every mark of the owner's identification had been carefully removed, while marks of a knife were discovered on either side of the suit case. As yet, police have been unable to solve the mystery surrounding the ownership of the satchel. [The Lima News, April 17, 1912]
