CORNLAND BANK ROBBED APRIL 1958 (March 6, 1958) The Village of Cornland, 10 miles southwest of Mt. Pulas- ki,, was thrown into a turmoil Tuesday, when two armed men robbed the bank there, of some $1300 about noon. This was the second bank rob- bery in Logan county in the past six months, but unlike the pre- vious one at Chestnut, the rob- bets played rather rough with bank employees. George Drake, cashier, and Miss Minnie Bryson, bookkeeper, both slugged by the robbers, were tied up and adhes- ive tape applied.
