In addition to the cases of attempted bur
glary mentioned in yesterday's Republican,
others have been reported to the police. Toe
thieves teem to be all of one class, and effect
entrances by cutting slats of blinds or in some
similar way. None of them work on a large
scale, but appear to be satisfied with small
plunder. The mot serious case known is the
robbery of the B C cigar store, 930 F street,

the premises, and Officer O'Hare captured a

premises. The prints of a man's bare feet
were discovered in the soft earth in the yard
of the house, and the officer made the prisoner
take off his shoe, and his foot was found to fit
exactly in the prints. The rear window ap
peared to have been opened by a wire so bent
as to be capable of drawing the bolt.
The yard fence was surmounted by a step

occasion from a nelshborinsr yard. Gordon

BEV. URIEL GRAVES.
The Charges Against Him Sot Tried Yet.
Since the adjournment of the Lutheran
Synod, which met in this city a month ago,
the counsel for and against Rev. Uriel Graves,
of Baltimore, have been in correspondence
with each other In regard to selecting a com
mittee to try the charges against that gentle
men. It will be remembered that the Synod
gave Mr. Graves a partial trial on the charges
or unclerical conduct, schism and contumacy,
and then, finding that they had astumed an
enormous task, left It to a committee of nine",
to be selected by the counsel for either side.
The countel have as yet failed to agree upon
any nine men. The prosecution complain that
the counsel for the defense have made unne
cessary objection to names suggested by. them
for the committee.
There is also a disagreement upon the place
of holding tho trial, the defense objecting to
holding it in Baltimore. The counsel for the
prosecution have addressed a letter to the coun
sel for the defense, setting forth their final
.declfion In the matter or selecting the commit
teemen. The Baltimore Sun says: "Should the coun
sel for the defense decline to agree to the pn
positions offered In the letter, it is believed
that the committee will go by default, and the
trial on the charges already preferred will be
postponed to the next annual session or the
Synod. Should this be the case, it is under
stood that the counsel for the prosecution will
btlng up new charges, based upon what they
claim is new and additional evidence agidnst
Mr. Graves, and will apply to the president or
the Synod, Rev. Dr. John G. Morris, or Balti
more, for a committee to try the new charges
preferred . Should this be the case, it is proba
ble the same counsel will act as heretofore."

The greatest remedy of modern times, for
the immediate allcvatlon of pain and positive
quick cure, Is without doubt, Benson's ca peine
porous plasters. The public appreciates arti
cles of true merit. Thousands of physi
cians and druggists speak In glowing terms of
their great curative properties, who know
them tobe superior to any other known medicine,
and who unhesitatingly recommend them from
honest motives. They cure chronlo and local
diseases which other porous plasters simply re
lieve. Rheumatism, neuralgia, severe and
continuous aches and pains, pleurisy, lumbago,
sciatica, and all diseases in which porous
plasters have been valued, are by Benson's
capcine porous plaster instantly relieved and
quickly cured. Their reputation is without a
parallel in the history or true medicine; thelr
action is more powerful than electricity, and
yet they are purely vegetable and contain no
mineral or metallic poisons Try -them and
you will not be deceived. Price 25 cents.
Fourth Ward Democrats.
A meeting was called last night of the Dem
ocrats of the Fourth ward, at St. Joseph's
hall, corner of Fifth and H streets northwest.
The call was responded to by some or the
faithful, but their spirits lagged and their
faith was weak, as they were not fully assured
that their ticket would carry off the laurels In
the Presidential contest. An effort was made
to raise the necessary funds to procure the
ball for the occasion, but the response fell
short and no meeting was held. Mr. Joseph
Shilling, unwilling to let an opportunity go by
which could be used to strengthen the cause
or Tildenlsm, mounted a porch near by and
squared hlmseli for a speech. His remarks
were short and probably his speech had Its
effect, but it was not made visible to any of
the bystanders. Several oi the company met
in a neighboring beer saloon after the exer
cises on the corner, where consolation was
had in raising spirits which coon went down.
Wcrthy of Remembrance.
Why will you suffer violent pain, or be
made uncomfortable, distressed in mind or
body, when you can be Instantly relieved and
quickly cured 'by Benson's Capcine Porous
Plasters. The ordinary porous plaster Is an
article or merit, yet its action is too slow, re
quiring days and weeks or continuous wear to
effect a cure, Benson's Capcine Porous Plas
ter, being a great Improvement over them, re
lieves you Instantly, and cures you qnlckcr
than any known plaster, liniment or com
pound. Their action is more powerful than
electricity, and more certain. They are purely
Tegetable, contain no mineral or metallic
ppltons. Their composition and properties are
founded upon true medical skill, and are In
no sense a patent medicine. They are in
dorsed by thousands of physicians and drug
gists, of unimpeachable reputation, as being
an article of genuine merit and worthy uf pub
lic confidence. Try them and be convinced.

a nerry scamp, fond of tricks, and no more awed
by the majesty of his lorerelgn than most lads are
by their grandmother. He was even lets amena
ble to discipline a few years ago than he Is now,
and on one occasionwhen staying with the Queen
at the Cattfe, played her a pretty prank. She
had a solemn dinner, at which a grand duke, Mr.
Gladstone and Dean Stanley assisted. At dessert
the children were -sent for. When they came In

him. He went on heedlessly. Grandmamma was
again obliged to Interfere. Atlasttheyonngrter

under the tabla, from whence he was not to
emerge nnttl ha had confessed his stn and prom

body's surprise, but,when challenged, assured his
Imperturbable grandmamma that he was not yet
quite good, but would bo soon. At last he was
satisfied with his own condition, and emerged as
naked as when he was born. He thought that he
could not do better than his first parents, anil re

Whatyon want those timet Is a good Five Cant
Cigar. LITTLE BOSK la a new brand of cigar
that we have had put up expressly for our retail
trade. It ts guaranteed tons to be manufactured
from selectea foreign and domestic leaf. It ha no
arUflcAlllavoi, and we are satisfied that the filler
contains a preponderance of Cuban tobacco. la
Introducing this brand our object 1 to rurnlsa a
elgarat J centa-flve for a centsof delicate flavor
good enough to puff at home. Believing that no
member or the family circle would object to the
odor or pare Havana, we commend thl cigar In a
special manner to gentlemen who wish to enJOT
their evening smoke at home, without offenw-to'
others. On trial we think you will agree with ua.
