Chief Held worked on the case on Wednesday and found that young Tommy Caunce a'nd Johnnie Roardon had broken up and destroyed over fifty quarts of preserves, break- ing the bottles on the kitchen floors, then ransacking papers and bureau drawers and strewing curranfs and sugar over the bedroom floors. It lias since developed that they have stolen a number of articles but it is very hard at present to tell all they have iakiin. They will be brought before Inspector Belcher as soon as lie comes back and it is to be hoped that lie can find a way to put a stop to such acts as we believe this is by no means an isolated instance of these boys' depravity.
