Iffland Grocery

206 S Second St


    Watertown Daily Times, 03 19 1908


Some miscreant or miscreants Tuesday night stole and carried away the large gum slot machine that hung in front of the store of H. & M. Iffland, Second Street.  The machine was well filled with gum and pennies. It is thought that it was either stolen by hoodlums in the city or by hoboes, who needed the pennies more than the gum.


This is the second gum slot machine that has been stolen the past few days and the police should get busy and if possible ferret out the rascal or rascals and see that justice is meted out to them.


Later, the machine was found during the forenoon in the lot on First Street, occupied by Fred Ullrich for piling concrete blocks.  The machine was wrecked and the gum and money taken by the thieves.
