When Dr. H. R. Brown, dentist at 200 Lisbon St., Lewiston, opened his office yesterday morning, he discovered that someone had entered the place during the night and stolen about $75 worth of gold, crown work and other articles used in the practice of dentistry.

Just what time the break was made is not known. It is said that a person was heard walking in the corridor on the office floor of the building about 10 o’clock. The case is being investigated.
