“Petersburg, Ky., Aug. 20. - When Al Rogers opened his store at sunrise Friday morning he found a burglar working at the safe.  The burglar fled after being kicked in the stomach by Rogers, who says the intruder is a citizen of Rising Sun, Ind.  He had lit a fuse, but Rogers stamped it out.”- Maysville Evening Bulletin, August 20, 1904
