crying. The girl was ordered Into bed with
her parents. Two yourfer children then
came Into the room, they wre intuit to sit
on the side of the bed. The burglar who

case with wedding rings in it on bureau
and was about to take them when Mr.
Tayntor asked him not to take them. The
burglar replied that he would take every
thing of value he could find. Theiv one of
the men standing guard over the family
aid: "Don't take those wedding rings. I
am a married man, and have some senti
ment about wedding rings." '
