MASKED BURGLAR OUTRAGE. Early on Saturday morning an elderly woman, living at Keighley, was drugged by a masked burglar, dragged downstairs, beaten, and robbed. The victim of this outrage was Mrs. Ann Sutcliffe, who lives alone in a cottage, and car- ries on a confectionery business. Abour four o'clock on Saturday morning Mrs. Sutcliffe was awakened by something with a disagreeable taste being forced into her mouth. Standing over her, and wearing a black mask, she saw a tall man, who demanded "her money or her life." The man dragged Mrs. Sutcliffe downstairs, and rifted the shop till. The little money she had, not more than £ 1 in all. was stolen, and the thief also helped himself to chocolate and cigarettes. Before leaving he struck the old woman heavily, causing her to fall against the table, resulting in painful injury to her back. The combined effects of the blows and the drugo rendered her unable to give an alarm or follow the man. Entrance to the house had been effected by breaking a panel of the door. It is presumed that a hand was then inserted through the aperture and the key of the lock turned from inside.
