Privates Max Foldsteln and DcMoro(
both of Battery A, 18th cavalry, Fort
Ethan Allen, wero searched in mo leai
room of Max Slegel's Jewelry storo on
Main street last evening niioui i.ju
Police Officer Charles Wardwoll In quest
of a ring said to bo stolen from a trny
in the store. According to Mr. Slegel's
Btory, tho two men entered tho storo, one
asking to seo somo silver rings. Mr.
Rlegcl put out flvo of them and told him
that tho prlro wns J2. Tho man then said
that hn cnnlil nnrchaso one at tho Post
exchange for 11.60. Tho other man In tho
moBntlmo asked to havo a siono put mm
a ring which he had and asked tho price.
This was given him nnd ho asked to seo
a stone. They wore loose and Mr. Slegel
could not show thorn, but said that ho
had somo set In rings nnd producod a tray,
nnlnttni? to nun containing a StollO ho
(loslrcd, While this man was looking tho
rings over tho other decided io mij a
silver ring for tho J2 and banded Mr.
Slegel a J10 bill. When Mr. Slegel returned,
ho noticed a ring missing from tho full
tray which tho other fellow was looking
nt. Ho rnlled the soldier's attention to
tho fact that a ring was missing una ino
soldier stated thnt lie did not havo It.
When ho started toward tho door to call
an officer tho soldier said that lie would
pay for It. Tho other soldier also agreed
to pay for it rather than to have trouble.
Mr. Slegel left" the store and wont Into
the street to get word to the pollco of
fleers, leaving tho men nt the counter.
A thorough search did n"t reveal the
ring. If they did not take the ring Mr.
Slegel wonders why they wished so
strongly to pay for It. However. Mr.
Slegel is minus a ring and Its disappear
ance Is still a mystery. The Impression
Is that the men disposed of It while ho
wns on the walk outside his store looking
for an officer. He could not accept money
for the ring ns ho could not state tho
value of tho missing ring. .
