(shortly after Tuthill came here to live several bold burglaries were committed in rapid succession. Aa tbe burglar wss always xnaaked no one could ever give a de sciption of him. Tuthill started a movement to bring Pinkarton detectives here to cUue down the thief.

The thief was striking another match, when Mr. Robertson jumped out of bed and grappled with him, but the fellow escaped. tub mask cokes off. Mr. Rubertson awoke the household. While ho was telling his expciicnco the burglar was less than a block away getting ioto the residence of John Manuel, another Mason, and a warm friend of the good Mr. Tuthill. Manuel wae aroused before the burglar got into his roonn though, and gavs him battle on the piazza. The thief's mask came off in [lie struggle and Mr. Manuel could hardly believe his senses, for thB face he recognized was that of his friend, ths village favorite, "Jim" Tuthill.

A remarkable offer waa made at tbia particular meal that w ill take rank aa tbe higheat prico over offered for a certain useful apparatus. Colonel Ilooker related tbe story in his breezy style as follows: 'Mr. Scott ordered a few mouth full of oatmeal and two effete piecce of toast. Be had hard work to eat a teaapoonful or two. I modestly ordered the following break-fail: Rolls, fried eggs, porterboaso steak, potatoes a la Saratoga, fried onions, fried bam, buckwheat oakee, fruit, broiled fish, good old-faahioned fried cbioken cooked a la Virginia, molasses, ala and half a dozen entree of leaser importance. Mr. rJcott gazed at me in consternation. I began to eat with my Vermont appetite, which is robust just 3G5 days in the year, and when I began to eat book wheat cakee, I ordered a big cup of coffee, and supplemented the order subsequently with three other cups, which I heartily drank. "The man with some 820,000,000 stopped eating and watched mo. I talked to him and ate everything around me. When I ordered my fourth enp coffrfe 1 saw tbat Colonel Scott was much perturbed and had fouethirgon hie mind. lie leaned far-ward over tbo table and aaid to mo in an earnest voice: 'Colonel Bookor, I am reposed tv be worth something,- I wouldgivo a quit claim deed to every cent I possess just to have that atomcob of yours.'
