Young Man Who Tried It On Left
the Ornament Behind.

"For an unusual loss and an unusual find, this is about the limit in this establishment," said Herman Schmelzer, yesterday. Mr. Schmelzer was showing a gold signet ring, with three initials in the cipher. The ornament had been lost and found by strangers.

"A young man came in here today to look at catchers' gloves," said Mr. Schmelzer, "and on ramming his fingers home struck this ring. It was not hard to guess that somebody who had last previously tried the same glove on had slipped the ring off when pulling his hand out. The clerk took charge of the ring and here it is. Now the job is to find the fellow who lost it. There will be no storage charges."
