Several of the choir boys liad their coats and caps stolen from the chapel of St. Andrew's church last Sunday during the evening service. The articles taken were two overcoats, two undercoats, two caps and a gold watch which was left in one of the coats. The choir boys leave their coats on the seats of the chapel when they put on their vestments. The door of the chapel is closed, but not locked, so that it can be entered from out doors. The theft was committed between 7 :30 and 8 o'clock. The janitor of the church noticed four strange boys sitting in the church just before the lights in the chnrch were turned up. They were there when the service began, but disappeared shortly afterwards. The oldest was about 15 or 1(5, and the three others smaller aud between 1 1 and 1-t, he thinks. After the choir boys had gone into the church the janitor was in the chapel and everything was all right. He went out for about áO minutes, and when he carne back the coats were gone. Naturally enoughthe $ four strauge boys are suspected.
