A shower of valuable silverware fell upon a Sewiekley resident last week, and this may serve as a clue to the robbery of some jewelry house, it is thought. H. G. Darsie of that suburb of Pittsburg, was walking along the Ft. Wayne Railroad tracks, and just as the fast mail passed him there was a shower of silverware, consisting of a sterling silver cake dish, worth $30, eight sterling silver plates worth $100, one sterling silver plate worth $10, three sterling silver candlesticks worth $15, nine silver plates worth $90, one silver candlestick worth $10, a silver sugar bowl worth $12 and a silver coffee pot worth $25. The box came with the shower, and was marked “R. W. & Sons Mfg. Co., Wabash Ave., Chicago." It was sent by R. Wallace & Sons Mfg. Co.. Wallingford, Conn. Mr. Darsie turned the silverware over to the Edgeworth police, who notified the railroad detectives. Mr. Darsie insists that the box did not fall from the train accidentally, and it is thought here that it was thrown off by some one who expected that confederates along the track would get it.

The R. Wallace & Sons’ Mfg. Co., Wallingford, Conn., have moved into their new salesroom, at No. 3 Park Place, New York, where they will have greater advantages for the display of their large line of goods of all kinds in sterling silver, plate and nickel silver. The floor is handsomely tiled and the hard wood cases that line the walls and extend through the center of the show room are of the rich and substantial appearance that only the firm of B. & W. B. Smith, the artistic cabinet makers of 220 West 29th street. New York, can furnish, and in these are exhibited in elegant plush boxes all the varied articles and patterns of the company’s manufacture, in sterling silver and silver plate. This great improvement in the New York salesroom will give the company better facilities for meeting the demands of their metropolitan trade and is but an indication of the general growth and prosperity of this enterprising concern.
