125, York Street, Toronto
Toronto, Can., May 31.— The premises of S. E. Sheyck, 125 York St., dealer in cheap jewelry, were broken into by burglars on the night of the 27th and large quantities of watches, chains and rings of the quality usually sold by traveling peddlers carried off. The thieves, who evidently fancied they had made a big haul, were disgusted on ascertaining the real value of their booty, and threw it away. A number of the stolen articles were found next morning scattered on the street, and the remainder were found the following evening in the rear of a wholesale warehouse where the disappointed burglars had apparently abandoned them.
