Burglarized Early Saturday Morning
Jimmy Used to Pry Open Win
dows. The railroa stations at Putnam,
Pomfret and Abington were entered
by burglars during the early hours of
Saturday morning. The loss in each
case is trifling, and the evidence in
dicates was money was the princi
pal objects of the breaks. At all of
the stations a jimmy was used to force
open the windows. Very few, if any,
tickets were taken, although the tick
et cases were pried open and the of
fices generally ransacked. At Pom
fret the man took a razor, shaving cup
and a few stamps. Nothing is missing,
so far as has been ascertained, at the
Putnam or Abington stations. Rail
road stations seem to have become the
special prey of burglars operating in
this section and during the past year
nearly every station in eastern Con
necticut has been looted. Included in
the list of stations entered in that time
are North Grosyenordale, Grosvenor

Arrested in Bridgeport.
In arresting Richard Bayard Coutant
Thursday morning Detective Fox un
covered another man wanted In New
ark for embezzlement. Harry Mc
Creevey is the name given by the last
man arrested, says a Bridgeport ex
change. Yesterday Superintendent Birming
ham received a communication from
W. O. Carroll, chief of police of the
city of Newark, asking if advertise
ments inserted in the Newark papers
by one John Sherman were bona tide.
The Jtdvertisement3 offered good wages
to those who would become managers
for the advertiser. Replies were to be
addressed to the advertiser in this
city The letter from Newark in
closed a pocket dictionary which
"Sherman" sent as a sample of the
goods he wanted tils agents to sell.
Detective Fox. by tracing the man's
mall, found Coutant located at the
Commercial house In Water street
near Fairfield avenue. With the man
Detective Fox found papers which
disclosed his system of working. Cou
tant, who signed "Sherman" to his
advertisements, wanted managers for
branch offices, and promised to send
full information on the receipt of a
two cent stamp: He received large
numbers of letters in reply to his ad
vertisement and each enclosed a two
cent stamp. No copies of a diction
ary were found in Coutant's possession
when arrested and he denies that he
ever sent the book sent here by the
Newark chief of police. Detective Fox
looked over Coutant's books and found
that he kept an accurate account of
all the letters he received and the
amounts for every day. A rart of
his system was entered by initials,
and these have not been explained to
the police. From the books it is es
timated that he received anywhere
from 50 toUOO replies a day from his
advertisements. The receipt of 100 let
ters a day. each containing a Swo
cent stamp, would mean an income
of $2 A deposit of $10 was asked as
security from those he appointed as
Coutant is about 30 years old. The
formation of his head and face could
never bo forgotten after being seen.
His forehead recedes and his jaws are
prominent. He is charged with ob
taining money on false pretenses, on
tho police slate.

earned more than 1,000 to $1,750 per
annum," she says. "The German
press !noke of me as a singer of the
first order and a great artist, and
many honors were showered upon me
by tho public; but at home I had h.ilf
a dozen half-starved children. Indeed,
the spectre of want never left niv
fireside while I was working exclusive
ly on the Oertnan operatic stnge. In
the United Slates I gave last year 130
concerts, each netting me $1,000."
