The furniture was taken from a store on Franklin street, carried on under the name of "J Gussen." but which is solely the property of Smith &Harwood. The business was conducted by Robert WerSmith &Harwood. The business was conducted by Robert Werne, with money which had been advanced by Messrs S & W. J Gussen's name was used in consequence of his well known reputation as a cabinet maker, but no money had been contributed by him, and half the profits were to be paid to the parties who advanced the capital, while Werns and Gusten were to have the other half. Each of the latter carried a key to the store, and for awhile everything went on well; but on Wednesday morning, when Werns went down, he found the store closed and the door, to whi
