Marshal Banfield has a fine collection of signs, thermometers, cigar cutters, statuary and other small árdeles on exhibition in his office, the results of visits paid to severa! students rooms last week by himself and other officers. Among the articles found by them was the large thermometer which Eberbach & Son had hung in their doorway for the benefit of the public, but which was stolen some time ago. This was found in the room of Charles Noble, a young high school student of wealthy parentage from Elk Rapids. One of the finest collections of signs to be found in the city was also discovered in the same room. Complaint was made against young Noble for stealing the thermometer and his trial will be held before Justice Pond tomorrow. At other rooms visited by the officers a number of stolen signs were found. The occupants of the rooms were called to the Marshal's office where a consultation was held but no other arrests were made. Two of these were also high school boys, only one student being implicated so far. Sign stealing has been a fad here for several years and Marshal Banfield will be entitled to the thanks of the business men generally if he succeeds in stopping it.
