I don ’ t Biippooo you feol',much interest' in bnrgliu's, nor nro tlioir habits a very (ilioico theme in polite literature ; but. thou tlmt occitrroneo.nt Glen Spring was really an extraordinary affair. I was on tlm polieo force at the time and know ■ Calico Charley well. His father was olio of the best maohiuiats in the oountry, aud he took more iiaiiis to make a man of Ills hoy than the follow deserved. The old man had a little numhino ahop mul dfai 1 the boy (Jhaiioy.with him — a bright, smart bliap he was theii. When he-was twenty-ono he got to bo ]>reUy lively about town, for the old man had saved up a hmulaome property aild let Charley have more money than was good-for him. Then'they .got up a new safe'look, and it made a big stir, and I believe they wont into that sort of thing pretty heavy. Any way Charley went over with the lock to the ilrst world's fair in London. There ho got tripped up. I never hoard exactly how it was. They put up a wicked job on him of somo.'kind, dnd got him luixodup-with aprot-ty.had London ‘ mob. ” The story that wo heard was shouldn ’ t have boon picked, Any way. ho got in with the wrong crowd and they wouldn ’ t lot go of him. He stayed over there about five years and got to be a regular flrst-oiass sneak, and worked half a dozen jobs in the most soioutillo man- ' nor. We got word from Scotland Yard that ho wuh coming back, and I dropped in at the phi: mail ’ s place, to try and fliid out something. Old Oulcott (that was his name) had: got rich. What with his bank look and ■ilia other-inventions, his mean way of living, and his luek in buy ­ ing some down town property before people had an idea bow big the city was going to be, he ’ d come ’ to .be a regular nabob. I couldn't got a word onto! him 'about his. boy. He said he ’ d given him - up, and was going to retire from biisi- noss. Money must have come in pretty fast then to the old fellow. Ho showed me half a dozen patents that he was- going to so, 11 put ; any one of ’ em must- have,been ffioftli a pile of dollars.; ' Now I ’ tmnk of it, it was .Caleott who .put the first Erauklinite in an iron safe. . and ho invented tho'ruhbor ilaufje which' presented.the,thieves from using the- air pump when they wanted to blow up a safe. ' , It hoouih that when young Caleott started for America he'd made up his mind to ent his London nequiSntunilos , and tricks, and: live honestly by going . back to,the old man. None of ns know it at tho time. Well, when ho got here a .envious thing., happened. Wo had a man in the central ollleo by the name of Meehan, who was ill with an east side, mob. He wan broke about a year al'b'r- wai-jl. Moolmn had got word from the lions, aud joined the thieves. It was in the winter of ’ 65 that the places along tho Hudson river wore broken into by a river gang. You may recollect it.
