Kindly restore it About the burglars I just kicked some kind of a bun dle in among the shrubbery yonder. Maybe the burglar dropped it" "Why, look here!" cried one of the officers, securing the bundle and opening it. "A fur cape, some jew elry, some silver." "Oh, I'm so glad!" exclaimed Mrs. Walters.
