Geo. W. Shiebier’s House Ransacked of Valuable Silver and Jewelry. George W. Shiebler, of the Geo. W. Shiebler Co., 179 Broadway. New York, lives with his family at 483 Washington Ave., Brooklyn. Last Monday evening he returned from Brentwood, L. I., where he had been spending the hot months. He retired early but enjoyed very little sleep. Early the next morning a servant knocked at his room door and asked if the silver had been removed from the dining-room. He answered in the negative and at once started an investigation. It was found that during the night burglars had ransacked the house. The family silver, which included many rare pieces, especially made for Mr. Shiebler, had been taken, but the plated ware was untouched. The goods stolen amount to over $1,000 in value and include many pieces of jewelry that were especially valuable for their originality of design.

All right, all right--I confess! But can you blame me?
