As in the former burglaries of the
store, the boys broke through a win
dow, and this time they also broke a
spring lock on the door. The noise if
their entrance, which was made about
1 o'clock this morning, awakened Mr.
Paridon, and when the three boys had
filled their pockets with gum and can
dy and like articles, and were altom
to make a raid on the cigars and to
bacco, Mr. Paridon collared them.
The goods taken bifore was of the
same character as that- which tin
