Tho " committee " which has complained
at so many quarters of tho disturbing char,
actor of tho howl of Mr. A. F. D, Bandolph's
dog and experienced no relief in an abate
ment of the lllogal nuisance, was discovered
last eveniug by a World reporter in tho per
son of Mr. Colin D. Anderson.
Mr. Anderson is advertising agent for

World who mny have sovereign remodies for
dog howls to forward their recipes, although
this probably will bo done. The man dis
turbed by howls will doubtless rocjivo many
suggestions as to remedies for his ailment,
from tho slmplo and primitlvo method of
stuffing his cars with surgeons' cotton to tho
moro modern hypodormio applications ; but
none, it is ventured to say, will be simpler or
moro effcotivo than a complaint in porson in
tho proper qunrtor, as suggested by The
World, unless it bo a removal from tho ro
glon of howls.
Not entiroly satisfied that thq investigation
of tho proviouB night had settled tho debata
ble question whethor or not the song which
Mr. Bandolph's big pot pup so frequently
sang to tho moon was a nulsanco, as alleged
by Mr. Andorson, " tho committee" of one,
b further pilgrimage was made to tho dis
turbed region last evening.
West Twenty-first street was visited on this
occasion with on idea that the backyard hay
ings of a moonstruck dog would striko with
greator forco on tho sympathetic tympanums
of tho dwollers thoro than upon the hearing
apparatus of Mr. Bnndolph's next uoighbors
in Twonty-socond street.
Mr. Hnrloigh Ellis, of No. 119. was the
first culled upon. "A howling dog in the
neighborhood, a nulsanco?" said ho. "Yes;
if you'll wait a moment you'll hear him. I
didn't know that ho was so near as Mr. Ban
Tho roportcr listened, but ho did not hoar
the promised howl, and Mr. Ellis explainod
that the disturber was unaccountably silent
just at that particular moment, the instinct of
the brute having advised him that au aveng

" that I did not writo the anonymous com

magistrate. But the dog has nover bothered
mo very much, although thoro is no disguis

Next door, at 121, Dr. D. W. Williamson
said : " No, it's no nuisanoe at all. The dog
frobably howls two or three times a week,
lo may tuno up much oftenor and I not hear
or rather not notice him, possibly because I
have become used to his howl. Ho does not
disturb me in tho least, although I can well
understand how a sick or superstitious per

Boilly, and told of a visit made yosterday by
an ofneer sent by the Mayor, who had ro.
ceived anothor complaint.
The maid who answered the boll's peal at

in, but when she had ascended the stairs with
tho message that a World reporter was
awaiting him in the back parlor suo returned
with the embarrassed announcement that he
Mrs. Sarah Woodward, tho lady of tho
house, was not out, however, and sue camo
at the reporter's request.
Sho know about the dog and his ways, and
she thought that he howled every day.
There was no doubt that Mr. Anderson
could hear the dog, because he had a rear
room. He said that he could not sleep be.
causo'of tho animal's howls.
Mrs. Woodward has a rear room, too, how.
over, and tho noise docs not disturb her, ol.
though she ascribed that fact to the other one
that sho had all sho could attend to to man.
age her household without listening to the
baying of a dog.
" I don't doubt, though, that the noise is
annoying to some." she said. " For instance,
there is a lady with a sick boy upstairs, and
the animal's howls give her tuo shudders. I
had a gentleman who was ill and who died in
ono of my roar rooms, and tho mournful
sound was particularly depressing in his case.
Mr. Randolph was notified of tho effect of tho
dog's noise upon tho gentleman, and the ani
mal's tuno was missed for somo time
" I don't blame Mr. Bandolph. I think
he's a nico man, and if 'Mr. Anderson had ro.
questod him to silence the dog I think that
he would try to do it. He's a big. splendid

her own room, with an angry flush upon her
As she oponcd her room-door she saw her

" Oh, no, Miss Sibyl, he's not worse, but I
could not keep back my tears whin I camo
home. I am crying out of puro gratitude.
Your kindness has saved his life, Miss Sibyl.
Can I ever do enough to repay you ?"
" The little fellow is much better, then ?"
And tho society bello turned away, and
with a quick movement touched her oyes

you been to tho At woods?"
' ' Yes, Miss Sibyl ; I took the wine and the

" And how is lir. Atwood ?"
Mr. Atwood was tho husband of Sibyl's
seamstress, a man who had beon very pros,
porous at one time, but who had failed in
business, and also in health, until his wife
had to take in sewing for tho support of him
and their two children.
Everybody knows what support the needle

A TRAMP'S IiONO HUNT.
CroMla; th Oenn to Follow III Wife, Who
Eloped With III Friend.
A tall, thin tramp, whose face still ihowtd traces
of respectability, walked Into Police Headquarters
last night and asked for a night' lodging, lie wa
directed to apply for shelter at a atatlon-houae
further down the street. To a reporter who talked
with him he unfolded an Interesting personal his
tory. "What made me a tramp T A woman; my wife,"
he said, aa he clinched his fists. ; We grew up to
gether In the same town In Ireland I, Michael
Fogarty, two years older than abe, Ellen Carroll.
I think I lored her always from the time we used to
go to school together when littles children to tne
time wnen my father, tho last ot his name and rare,
aa e ruyaelf. died and left mo the farm. It waa not
much, but It served our wants during his lifetime
and more than ample for mine alter he died. Tue
old place felt lonely, though, after he had gone and
then It waa tnat 1 thought seriously of asking Kile a.
to be my wife. Bti waa alone In the world, too.
Her parenta died within a week ot one auoiher.
We were married ten year ago, Two children
were born, Bridget and Delia nod bless them
wherever they arc and we had spent aeren teara
happily In our old Irish home when Martin O'Brien, a
distant relative of Ellen's, visited Ireland and
called at our houae to aee her. He drcaaed well,
had plenty of money anu never wearied of boasting
of his flue saloon in New York, lie had not been a
month In the house when I came home ot a market
day to And the plate dark, not light from a win
dow, no amoke over tue roof. The door waa un
locked. I oalleil my wife, my children, my friend.
There waa no one there to answer tne. ln;onn
bedroom I found a note pluned to the quilt. Here
It is. "
'lhe tramp dove his hand aown inside of his
greasy woollen shirt and drew forth a crumpled
scrap of paper, whloh he read off aa follows:

Home queer things hsppen now and then In
society, which, though they do not get In the
papers, nevertheless raise considerable stir for the
time being In the particular circle most nearly
affected by them. Particularly la this true In the
matter of weddings, two notable Instances haMng
taken plaoe very recently. At one of the weddlnga,
wnlch wo oelebratcd according to the Presbyter
Ian rites, tho young clergymen came from New
York lonomelate, as he wa a near relative of one
of the contracting parties. Tho young divine, ris
ing to the dignity of the occasion, delivered a long
address, the glowing eloquence of whloh caused
hi hearers to turlll with enthuslaam, and
prognosticate for him great thing for the
future. Bo decided was the Impression created on
all present by hia addreas, that It became the sub
ject of universal comraont, proving a veritable
nine days' wonder. In the midst of wnlch the sub
ject departed for his parish In New York In a whirl
of glory. Among bis auditors at the wedding wa
a lady to whom tne address seemed strangely fa.
miliar. Do what she would she could not rid her
self ot the Idea that somewhero she had read the
whole address, that It was not original with the
young divine. Imbned with this luea, she put on
her thlnklng-cap to some purpose, for before very
long aho had located the borrowed addreas, and
takum down her favorite volume ot George Eliot,
traced It word for word In "Adam Bede," sev
eral pages ot which had been studiously committed
to memory, aa having an appropriate bearing
upon the ceremony at which he had been Invited to

" What elso should a leader of society havo
