One just never knows what information is lurking in newspapers. This clipping indicates that my relative was robbed in his store in Chicago.

I'll have to do some additional searching to see what else I can turn up about this incident. I already know that Trautvetter owned his own pharmacy in Chicago. The census will confirm his occupation and city directories may tell me where the store he owned was actually located.
