A few days age an individual who said
his name wus Strauss swooped down en
His real name may be Brown, if there
are any Browns In Jerusalem.
Strauss thought this n premising field
for another big clothing house.
And his main trouble was in finding a
room with acreage enough te accommo
date his big business. He finally settled
upon n moderate sized stere in Cooper's
Building, with the prospect of seen
haviDg partitions removed and occupying
the entire ground fleer at an early date.
Orders were given for shelving, and
seen the carpenters would have been at
As Mr. Strauss didn't de business en
wind, he sought the Bank of Maysvllle
and deposited a geed sized draft. This
made a rival bank green with envy, and
one of its officers sent a messenger after
him. He was net long in premising a
a division of his deposits when' he get
under full headway. We don't knew
hew many cigars or hew much wine was
"set up" ever this announcement. But
there was grent Jey, and there are unpaid
wine and cigar bills.
Well. Strauss was a man of fine
gastronemies, for he began bearding with
Mrs. Coulter, who is said te keep the best
table in the city. Here he met a premt
nent Physician, who subsequently cashed
his check for a cool $50.
Several ether citizens and firms did

He took a son of the Physician with

When the train reached Newpert Mr.
Strauss induced his companion te disem
bark and cress the new bridge into the
city. Reaching Fourth and Broadway
he gave the young man both return tick
ets, offered him any sum of meney he
might need, and finally induced him te
accept $5. With the injunction te go
direct te the hotel and await his arrival,
Strauss said he had soma business out
Broadway and left his young friend.
As Broadway beyend Fifth street is
about as " tough" as can be found, knew
ing ones will wender what attractions
" Bucktown" h,as for business men.
At all events, Strauss did net put in an
appearance at the betel, nor has he been
seen or heard from since. His traveling
companion returned alene.
Yesterday there was a general cussing
and a countermanding of orders, and it is
thought that, Maysvllle will worry along
with her prosent complement of clothing
stores for a while at least.
It is proper te say that the Bank is net
any leser, as none of the checks were
honored. The less falls upon the good geed
hearted individuals who put up their
meney for worthless paper.
And the next day it snowed.
A stranger can come te Maysvllle and
get all the meney he asks for; an honest,
hard-working man who has lived here all
hia life can't borrow $5 te buy bread for
his hungry children.
