★ Louis Mueller was the “heaviest loser” at the Sheboygan County Fair in September 1908. Skillful thieves robbed him of his wallet containing $15 in bills, a check for $71.95, and several notes worth more than $1,000. Other fairgoers lost from $3.00 to $75.00, bank certificates for hundreds of dollars, and the train conductor lost his gold watch. The pickpockets targeted passengers at the depot as they boarded the trains.
