An effort is now being made to raid the thieves through a tip on the sale of part of the stolen liquor. Jewelry valued at nearly a thousand dollars was taken In one of the robberies. The thieves operated in broad daylight, according to reports received by the police, entering the house while the occupants were at luncheon, and taking the Jewelry from a box in a scond floor bedroom. In another robbery almost as bold the thieves obtained liquor valued at several 'hundred dollars. The gang walked into the house, while the owners were downtown on a short shopping trip, and took the liquor from a sideboard.

The robberies have taken nlace in all parts of the city, and are believed to be the work of one gang. No trace has been found of the stolen Jewelry and other articles, but officers were Informed today that liquor of that brand had been sold in the last few days for a dollar a bottle, and are checking the tip.
