If w overlook the shortcomings of a burglar we can see that he serves it good purpose as well as every thing else In creation. He serves indirectly to secure work tot the locksmith, the tailor, the jeweler, profit to the seeoud-hitnd clothing dealer and support to a numerous and stalely police force. A company has been formed which offers to put tele graph facilities into every house for $1S a year, by which one cun call it mounted polio officer every time a burglar la in the house.
