was, I started lor home. It might have
been more nrodeut to stay until morning.
bnt I felt an lions to tfot back, and eager to

I was mounted on a steady-going old
horse of -mine. hiM vretly well loaded.

I rode on as fast at I could, but all of
auddeu I heard a little cry like a child's
voice! I stopped short and listened-1
heard it asain. I called aud it answered
me. I oouidn't see a thing; all was dark ns
Ditch. 1 got down and felt about in the
crass alled again, and again was ail'
swered. . Then I began to w ondvr. I'm not
timid, but I was known to be a drover and
to have money almut me. It might be a
trap to catuh me unawares and rob and mur
I am not auperslitious not very; but
how could a real child be out In the proirie
ou such a night at such an hour? It might
be more than human.
The bit of a coward that bides Itself in
most men showed itself to me then, and I
was half inclined U run away, but (.lire
more I heard that cry, and said I :
"If any man's child is Hereabout,' An
thony Hunt In not the man to let it dm."
. I seareued again. At lat I bethought
me of a hollow under the hill, and croped
that way. Sure enough, I found it little
dripping thing that moaned and a ibbbal a
I took it in my anus. . I called my Lome,
ami lUe teasi came lu uu und f mounted,
and tucked tho little soaked thing under
my coat as well as I could, promising to
take it homo to mammy. It seemed tired
to death, an J pretty soon cried Itself to
sleep against my bosom. "'-',
. It had slep, there over an hour ' when I
saw my owu windows. There were lights
iu them, and I supposed my wife lit tlieni
for my sake, but when I got into tin door

stood still with a dead fear nl heart ilveuiiu

Mysterious Affair—A Strange Man.
Found in the Woods.
From the Detroit Free Press 22d.
' 'The most startling and thrilling sensation
it baa beeu the lot ot ye locals to record tir
many juar in this region came to liiht
yesterday, the following nftrticularsof which
we have' from Justice V. B.' Austin and
llepirty fiberirl Jasjos De Foe, the oflleer in
the cose. , . . . .
Vesierdrty afternoon psrtlws eame into
tho city from a point in the eastern portion
of the Uiwuship of Greenfield, fiear the line
of the Detroit A Milwaukee Railroad, about
four miles from tho Junction, reporting
that a man had been found concealed in
hollow stump, just east of Uie railroad, by
some person engaged in chopping wood,
and whose attention had been attracted to
the place by the barking of a dor; which
Uiey tutu w un tbem.
It was further stated that the n-tson, who
ever he was, wonid give no account of him
self, only that he had ..been nearly a weak
in tho stump: refused to leave his den, as
it emphatically was, and altogether giving
grounds for serious apprehensious as to his
condition aud designs. He was furnished
with food, and a measeuger dispatched to
the) city for an otBcer. .. a
The facts having beeu made knowu, otti
cer James De Foe was dispatched to the
place in question, with orders to investi
gate and bring the mysterious pentou in.
Upon arriving at the spot he was directed
to a lurf'e stump which had been hollowed
out by fire, and at the bottom of which the
man was still lying rolled up upon a scanty
bed of .leaves and straw. .Jl'pou being
given to understand that" he' must come
out1' he did so with -Tehictance, ' pre
sentiug a oomical . appearance, .his . lacs
blackeued with smut from the will Is of his
narrow domicile, his features pinch
ed with hunger and bis limbs cramped and
distorted from the elosenoss of his recent
quarters. Being asked what he was doing
there, he began in a whining and sniveling
mimnsr to say that he might as well stay in
there and die as to be. hung., , On being
further questioned he said he started from
Kt. Joseph, Mo., a week sgb Mouday last,
on his way to i'ortlaud, Ms. ; his parents
aud brothers and sisters living iu that state;
that he was being pursued for something
he had done theie what- it was
he refused to tell that ' en . reaching
Uiis city , on Wednesday, the 11th
inst., be had lull the cars and gone
out to the -pines where he was found, and
crawled iute the stump with the intention
of remaining there till death. His trunk,
he said, bad gone on, and he had but little
money wlUi him." These statements were
partially corroborated ,f , .e.rct, r ni.
person, upon which was found a railroad
ticket from Rt ' Joseph to Portland,
baggage oheck, and between three and
four dollars in money. He had also a ail.
ver watch. In the course of his conversa
tion he said he was not to blame for what
he had done, and was now being hnuted to
the gallows, but would rather die where he
Was alone than be caught. ' -.
The riheriu brought him to Uie Junction,
and thoiu'e on the cars to the city, where,
slier consultation with the prosecuting at
torney, he was committed by Justice Aus
tin on a warrant for being a disorderly inr
sou. His examination will take place to
morrow (Friday). ' .
. This niisterious person is about five feet
nine inches iu. height dark brown hair,
full beard, a Kossuth hat, wears light calf
boots. Hack coat - and pants and light
vest presenting generally a respectable sp
pearauee. Ueis apparently about twenty
eight oi1 thirty years of ago, and gives his
tiorae as James N. Parsons. "
The conduct and
thus far give no clue to the unraveling
uuu,; mysterious aliuir.

such a conclusion, besides sll surrounding
cironmstonees, the Mcket, check, eta, cor

was allowed hira on the cars, and npon ar
