4-- JL b Attempted Burglary at Sully. On Monday last Rock Villa, the residence of Miss fouse' sitK?lte 01i f he se-tshore between Sully and Lavernock, was br >ken into by burglars. It appears that tne house was not occupied by ftliss Rouse and her servants at the time, the former at the present time living at another of her country residences, Oourtyralla, near Dinas Powis. About 8.30 in the morning the caretaker of the villa (Mrs Hyatt) paid her usual visit to the house, and discovered that the front door had been broken open and the furniture shifted about in a most disorderly manner. The woman's attention was also called to a boat wittt three men near the beach. The occupants appeared to be calling to someone on shore near the villi, and ilfrs Hyatt, 011 going round to the front, saw a man hiding in the bushes. The house being situate in rather a lonely spot, she became gre-itly terrified and ran to the village for assistance. P. C. Cottrell soon arrived, but by this time all trace of the men had disappeared- The burglars were evidently surprised in carrying out a well-conceived plan, and as far as can be ascertained up to the present time none of the household effects are missing.

Stabbed in the Back.
