BURGLARS LIKE BETHEL STA TION. , For the third tlmo within a few montba the Bothel railroad Htatlon was vlHlted by burglars, last week Wednesday night. Just what time the parties paid their visit Is not known, but wnen Station Agent Gal lagher opened the place shortly be fore six o'clock on Thursday, he found everything in disorder In his private ollice, drawers and closets opened and everything strewn about, showing that the place had been thoroughly ransacked. The burglars were evi dently deliberate In their work, for a quantity of cigarette papers were found anu tobacco strewn about the floor, as If the parties uad taken time to roll and smoke the articles. En trance wns made by a window In the baggage room on the west side of the building, where they uad roen the lock on the window. Between $8 and $9 in pennies was taken from tne office and a few tickets. The pennies were those which had been taken from the weighing and chewing ma chines. After ransacking the office, the burglars turned their attention to the waiting room, where they tore the pay telephone box from the wall, and evidently fearing to tarry long enough to open it in the station, or perhaps fearing passersby might hear the noise, they carried or dragged the bulky box down the track to near the Shepard Brothers' tannery, where It was broKen open and the money taken out. The members of St Thomas' parish held their first service in the new church Christmas morning. It was intended, if the organ could be made ready for use, to hold both the Christ mas morning services there, but this was impossible.

No other services will be held in the new church until it is completed, probably about the middle of next month. There is still much work to be done, such as the com pletion of the work on the chancel, where the mosaic floor must be laid, the frescoeing of the walls, the plac ing of the pews and installing of the numerous fixtures. For the service on Christmas morning chairs were used. The three memorial windows in the chancel are being placed In po sition by Tiffany's men, of New York city.
