The denizens of this unique ldace

and tin brevity of the name, together

the title to the use of the enturesome

Two w Intet s ago Piltz was "doing
time" In the county jail and so enntn
oi ed did he become with the legulaiity
of the meals and the softness of his
couch that he was loath to leave the
county bastile, and later, w hen the law
had exacted Its sweet demands on hliu
he became a lodgei in the cential police
station. His ston couch theie was
scaicely as alluiliur as at the jail, but
it was so hugely better than sleeping
in cettaln dellveiy wagons, left stand
ing In courts and lanes, that ho quite
cheei fully volunteeted to shovel the
snow fiom the sidewalk about the city
hall In eonsldeiatlnn of sleeping apait

Succeeding months Inci eased in Filtz
a moi bid hatied of wotk, and Instead of
w oi king a few months, sci aping to
gethei fifty or a bundled dollats and
then timeline In the lealm of clndeis
and ties, he sousht ietie.it fiom the
hniasslng demands made upon his mus
cular and lobust manhood by life
midst of the iletce competition of mod
el n civilized life.
Late In the fall of '93 he discovered,
high up over Nay Aug falls, a nui row
cave, foimed by an ovei hanging ledge
of locks Here he assembled battel ed
pans and palls and piepnred to piotect
ljlmself fiom the honois of the "svvea

he was joined by congenial splilts,
who wete taken In on the expicss stip
ulations that they ftiinl.sh the -victuals,
the fuel and pel foi ni such choies as
Ftltz dictated. The winter came on
and nianv Sciantonlnns, as they drove
over the bildge, above the falls, es
pied the sniveling mortals up under the
lock and compassionately besought the
police to take them to the station house,
toi fear the inoirow night might find
them stiff nnd cold, lu furnishing the
fuel Item Filtz's boaideis made such in
cessant lalds on the old dancing pavil

street car line, that on the succeeding
summer the pavilion had dlsappeaied.
Its smoothly planed boaids had fed the
Hies under the ledtre, and so near to

to lay that, mote than once a "Dusty

fully awakened by fire eating his cloth

HI2 DECAMH DISSATISFIED.
Hut Filtz became dissatisfied and nf
tei considerable nerving up for the oi
deal, he seal died about for a bettor
place, neat watei, fuel and other neces
sities. It was then that last summer
he took possession of the "Hotel De

"Yes; but It's too much ttoublo to
