MAN WHO GOT GtMS
AT PINE ST. HOUSE NOT
IN ROGUES' GALLERY
Butler Pores Over Pictures
in Vain Search for Like
ness of Thief Who Hood
winked Him and Stole
?- police Believe Criminal Is the
Same Man That Looted the
Richards Residence Near
Media, and Think He Must
Be New to This City.
William Touns, butler for MrB. Fred
trick Jost, of 1901 Pino street, hoodwinked
ly a burglar who stole $12,000 worth of
Jewels from tho house, spent several
hours today porlnff over pictures In tha
Itdiues' Gallery at City Hall searching:
for tn llkcneas of tho thief,
Young finally gavo up tho search after
looking nt nearly every picture In the
collection, So far no clua to tho Identity
of the man has been found, and tho police
believe ho Is new to thla city.
The circumstances surrounding tho ieft
Jifiva led tho police to bellevo that tho
turglar Is tho samo man who last Satur
day plundered tho homo of George F.
nlchards, on the Itcd Bridge Farm road
near Media, of J700O.
La to this afternoon Mrs. Jost said that
ilia valuo of the missing Jewels was
112,000 and that tho original cstlmato of
110,000 wns plncorrect. Tho Jewels, she said,
had been In tho family for generations.
The thief Is described as about 35 years
old, B feet 5 Inches tall, weighing about
150 pounds, of dark complexion and wear-log-
a small mustache. He was well
dressed and of suave manner.
This description differs from that of
the man suspected of having entered the
Richards' homo only In that the latter was
described as tall and not wearing a mus
tache. By stooping It would be easy for
the thief to make himself appear short,
the police say. Tho mustache may have
Although tho burglar was not seen In
tha Richards' home, a man of Interna
tional fame as a "gentleman burglar" Is
being shadowed hero as a suspect. He
has been Implicated In many suclt big
deals as tho Jost and nlchards robberies,
but has always-managed to escape without
leaving a positive clue behind him.
Mrs. Jost was entertaining friends yes
terday afternoon when tho man arrived.
He explained to the butler he was an "old
friend" and did not care to disturb Mrs.
Jost. He asked for writing paper, so ho
could leave a note, and when the butler
returned tho "friend" was missing.
Thinking nothing amiss, the servant went
on aboJt his duty, bellovlng tho stranger
had grown tired of watting and had left.
Ills striking appearance and easy manner
"in conversing had convinced the butler
ho was a gentleman.
Servants were going freely about the
houso and Mrs. Jost still was entertain
ing while the man re-entered room after
room, picking up every piece of valuable
Jewelry In sight. Tho robbery was not
discovered until 9 o'clock last night. Then
Mrs. Jost found her bedrooms had been
ransacked, clothing strewn all over tho
houso and the Jewel boxes emptied of
only their valuable gems. None of tha
servants noticed tho untidy condition of
the rooms or small articles of Jewelry
lying about tho floor.
The burglar left no clue. Ho evidently
wore gloves, for not a finger print was
left on any of the articles ho touched.
Tho police sey he did his Job well, took
is little time as possible and then, with
the suave manner that always wins in a
robbery, calmly walked from the house,
apparently free of capture, swinging his
cane as though ho had attended a dinner
party in tho Jost home.
Detectives havo come to the conclusion
that the man who did tho Richards' "Job"
was a veritable "Jimmy Valentine." Only
such a burglar would have had sufficient
nerve to make away with the Jost Jewels.

niSHOt TALBOT SPEAKS
Prelate Appeals for Communion With
God in Daily Life.
"Unless you have In your home and
heart an upper room facing squarely upon
the sky, looking out upon ft horizon
bounded by nothing nearer than tho stars,
and see God, you are hot lMng In the
world for which you were Intended."
This was the keynote of nh address
made by iii.hop fithelbert Talbot, of tho
Diocese of Bethlehem, at tho noonday
services today In St. ptcphen's Episcopal
Church, 10th street above Chestnut.
Bishop Talbot said tho philosophers are
Informing tho world that each man's Im
pression of things around him Is tho only
reality beforo him. Viewed from this
light, he declared, an endless variety of
worlds are presented.
Bpcaklng after tho manner of such
men, tho Bishop said, Christ did not live
In much of a world, so far as outward
environment was concerned. He called
nttentlon to tho birth of Christ In n.
manger and his death between two
thieves, and snld that when Christ was
asked whero ho lled ho told his ques
tioners to "come and see."
"Our Lord had a sense of divine com
panionship," he concluded. "Ho had a
sense of mission. Ho had tho spirit of
sorvlce. Wo can all have these three
great Inspirations of life."
BISHOP GARLAND'S PLEA
Tells Lenten Audience Duty of Aiding
Bishop Suffragan Thomas J. Garland
addressed a lnrgo audlenco at tho noon
day Lenten sorvlco nt tho darrlclc Thea
tre this afternoon on "Ono Thing Thou
Lackeat." He drew his etory from tho
ramble of the rich young man.
This young man, so the story goes, onco
asked Christ what he could do to mako
himself a perfect Christian. Tho answer
was "Give away jour money." Tho
young man said ho could not do this,
nnd ho thus failed in his first test.
"Being rich Is no sign of ungodliness."
said Bishop Garland. "It Is being nblo
to bo rich and yet bo godly that counts.
Our one great lack Is In having nothing
to do. I do not refer to tho unemployed
who cannot help themselves. Wo should
do nit wo can to help these men. No
matter how rich we are, wo should find
something to do. It occupies tho mind.
It Is not tho manner In which wo live
thnt counts so much as tho lovo wo show
DIVINE POWER ON EARTH
The Rev. C. M. Jacobs Explains It as
"Christ's Power Upon tho World and
the Way Ho UBed It" was tho subject
of tho noonday Lenten sermon preached
today by the Itov. C. M. Jacobs, of tho
Lutheran Theological Seminary, at St.
John's Lutheran Church, Raco and 6th
streets. Tho speaker said that the pouer
of Christ Is spoken of not as power tn
tha ordinary sense, but as authority.
"This," ho said, "has tho guarantee
and tho limitations of power. There were
things that Christ could not do, because
they would have been beyond His au
thority. He could not refuse to die and
Ho could not perform a miracle for
"For the one tiling that He came to
do, His power was perfect and complete.
That ono thing was to give eternal life.
Eternal life Is llfo lived In and by tho
lovo of God."
LENT AND ITS DUTIES
Bishop Rhinelander Points Out Spirit
ual Value of Fasting.
Lent and tho duty of fasting are not
relics of tin years gone by, according to
the noonday Lenten sermon delivered at
Old Christ Church by Bishop Philip Mer
The bishop said In tho present ago too
many men overlook tho necessity of fast
ing: tho work of the church Is to bring
this duty to their attention, cepeclally in
tho Lenten season.
Fasting Is particularly necessary, as It
affects the body, Bishop Ithlnelander said,
because it Is through the body that tho
soul Is tempted.

Many were the touching scenes enacted

complaint of tho Keystone Telcphono

James Collins Jones, counsel for tho

tho onu slogan they had with which to
meet tho "universal service" slogan of tho
Bell. Ho presented figures to show that

correct abuses In rates.
BOXING LAWS CONDEMNED

consistency in State Regulation.
Tne State laws governing boxing re

"The laws prohibit a man from light

Mr. Trautweln, "but they mako an ex

t'nat It absolutely prohibits otherwise.
