"Talk about your hotel beats," said a
clerk in one. of tho hotuls of thu city
thu other evening, "I heard of ono of
tho toughest cases which happened a
short time ago. I got tho lirst part of
the story from the proprietor of a prom
inent restaurant, In whom tho fellow
told it history of tho affair before ho
skipped out of town. lie said that ono
evening this fellow camo iu und sat
down to a tablo, giving his orders with
the air of a millionaire. Ho was nicely
dressed, and wore a long, handsoin'o
ulster. After he had tinishod his sup
per ho started out, seeming to forget
that ho hadn't paid. The proprietor
stopped him with a reminder of tho
fact, when it was found that tho fellow
was a beat, and hadn't a cent of money.
The restaurateur was angry, and about
to administer a dose of leather beneath
the tails of that elegant ulster, when thu
follow begged oil', and said he would
leave his pantaloons with the proprie
tor as security till morning. The gen.,
tleman, iu oiiler to lest hint, eniisi'iited,
and tin: fellow went behind the screen
and divest. 'd himself of the afore-mentioned
garment, leav ing only the light
covering of his underclothing. With
his ulster buttoned close aio.iinl him,
he still had the npii'nrniict of a liuelv
dii'ssed I'litleinan w ii'i his pantaloons
stull'ed in his boot tons. JI. left the
breeches and Weill ollt. KlltiTltlg a
certain prominent hotel, ho walked tn
the regisier, en'.i red liU name, demand
ed to ho shown I i his t'.ioin, and in
strtieted the clerk t have him called at
8 o'clock in tie' ill iriiitrj;, nil of which
was complied 'A iih; but when the boy
called him at S o'clock the air about
that room was blue with profanity, and
the fellow ordered tho boy to send (ho
landlord up immediately. The land
lord, thinking .something terrible had
happened, immediately repaired lothe
room and found his gta t apparently
iu a terrible rage, lie want.'d to know
what kind ..f a d d hoiiie they kept
there, full ut p, Ity slo'ak thieves. '.List
look here,' -lid lie, 'loy pant ah oils con
taining my po l. el-book and wat -h nro
gone, and some one coiine.'tcd with this
house took tlietii, for I hey must have
crawled iu over the transom. I tell
ou, by , I'll give this place away
to every man on the ro.nl.' The land
lord was considerably chagrined about,
the mailer, and sent out for a pair of
pantaloons, and as the rest of the
clothes Were Very elegant, an elegant
pair was puivhaM-d. The fellow was
then tak n to breakfast and shown tho
l.e-l atlenliott th.' house could afford.
After breakfast the landlord gave him
JO, sis he had to leave immediately,
and promised to leave no stone unturned
until the thief was di.v.'ovoreil. Tho
elite young gentleman went to the res
taurant, redeiMiii'd his pants, told tho
storv, and skipped the town about
