The tramp followed with gloomy
eyes the course of a little launch up
the river till it disappeared under the
Wabasha street bridge.

"But it ain't this that's been alto
gether the ro'on o' the perfession,

ain't never committed by members o'
the perfession, I kin tell yer that.
IWhy, I've been a-trampin' of this
country for the past fifteen years—
IWait, look it here!"
The tramp pulled off a battered old
cap that was at least three sizes too
large, for his head and displayed with
evident pride a crop of thick silvery'
"That there ain't no sign of youth,"
he remarked grimly, "so yer see I
■wasn't any too young when I began
a-trampin'. How did I come to take
it up?" He glared defiantly about him
\vhen the question was put and spat
again, this time angrily, into the rlv-
er. "That there question I don't feel
called upon to answer," he snarled,
"for it ain't something that concerns
the world at large but myself."
He sat silent for awhile, nursing his
wrath, but the offer of an entire plug
of tobacco soothed in a measure his
feelings and after he had bit off a
piece he began to talk again.
Tramps Suffer Unjustly.
"Why, look'it this here city, St. Paul!
Ten years ago at this time o' the year
there wos as many as a hundred o'
the perfession. It was a sort of an
nool meetin' place, yer see, for about
the last o' May we scattered into the
country in squads as yer might say.
In the fall we met here again and from
here worked our way to Sh'cago where
the hoboes o* this Middle West make
it a pint ter spend the winter. But
wot I was agon' ter say wos this, in
all my fifteen years o' trampin' I've
never known of a real hobo to commit
a crime. Oh, there's been many a one
fastened on ter him and many a time
has one o' the perfession been made
to suffer fur crime o' some crazy farm"
hand. There wos Handy Andy, as de
cent an' kind-hearted a hobo as ever
ornermented the perfession. A little
light in the head, he wos, fur once he
had been married and had a happy
home, but he didn't do more'n make a
decent livin' at hit; trade, which was
that o f shoemakin', and Andy's wife,
Bhe got tired o' the scrimpin' and
scrapin' and one day lighted out with
a plumber, tukin' th' baby along with
her. That 'queered' Andy and he took
to th' road, but there wosn't a straight
er nor an honester feller livin'. We
called him Handy Andy 'cause if any
of us had to have a littfe Job o' mend
in' or o' cobblin' done, Andy could do
it as neat and elegant as any woman.
He wos powerful fond o' po'try, was
Andy. Yer know"—the tramp shift
ed his quid of tobacco from one cheek
to the other and leaned over confiden
tially—"we hoboes like to carve our
'road' names on water tanks, switch
hcusea and other places along th' line,
THE ST. PAUI, GLOBJ& SUNDAY MAY 17, 1903.
and sometimes, too, we leave some
message on a farm fence or buildin"
just ter give the next feller who passes
by a tip as to the attitoode o' the oc
eoopants. Well, Andy always had his
pretty piece o' po'try to go under his
name, or, if he left a message, he
wrote it in po'try of his own com
Andy's Sad Fate.
"Wot became o' him? Well, I'm jest
gettin' to that. One night in a little
lonely spot jest outside a town in
South Dakota, a farmer was set upon
and robbed and almost murdered.
Handy Andy was found near by. He
had stolen a snack o' food from a
farm house and was in the act o' pre
parin' his breakfast when the officers
pounced on him and carried him oft!
ter th' county jail. Andy had cut his
finger on a piece o' glass an' there
were blood stains on his clothes, but
that was all there was against him and
an' he showed th' cut finger to th'
court so that it could see how little
there was in that. But I've said Andy
was a little queer in his head an' he
couldn't answer properly th' questions
that was put to him, and then, yer
see, he wos convicted and sentenced
fur life. He's alive now in prison, an* I
tell yer there ain't a more innocent or
more abused man in this whole coun
try than that same Handy Andy."
The tramp chewed reflectively for
awhile, crouching lower on th£ levee
to protect himself from the breeze that
blew in briskly from the river.
Where Has the Hobo Gone?
"Wots become o' all th' hoboes?"
he echoed thoughtfully. "Well; some
of 'm 'em have got jobs and stuck to
'em and others Jiave stayed in th' big
cities and joined th' crooks. But
they're no more tramps when they do
this than they are when they go to
work. In this here town there is livin'
today in tip-top style a man who was
reckoned th' most promisin' of all th'
tramps in this part o' th' country
when I started out fifteen years ago.
O' course, what they tell about hobo
clubs and a hobo language an' all that
is jest~ rot, though, ter be sure, the
hoboes have a sort o' understanding.
Well, if there had been a real, sure
enough club then, this man would o'
been the president of it all right, for
he was a powerful clever fellow. Why
no farmer's wife wos ever known to
refuse him a square meal, his tongue
wos so glib an' his manners so fine.
He stayed in th' perfession three years
after I became a tramp an' then one
mighty hard winter in Sh'cawgo when
they wouldn't even let us sleep in th'
police station at night, Handsome Jack
—that't wot we used ter call him—
Joined th' Salvation Army. It was the
rooination o' him. The army got him
a job an' he soon showed that he
wos a masterhand at makin' money.
He gave up th' army and came here
to St. Paul to locate.
His Old Pal Patronizes Him.
"I saw him three years ago fur th'
first time since he'd gone to the bad
and I knew him right away in spite o'
his' fine togs. An' he knew me, too!
He wos with same high nobs when I
slouched by but bime by I heard some
'un say, 'Wait a minute, my man,' an'
I turned to find him right behind, me.
His hand was outstretched and there
wos a dollar in it which I jedged he
wanted me ter take. I didn't though!
Why? Well, I dunno. You see, he
stood off in that 'distant sort o' way
jest as if we had never ridden freights
and robbed chicken coops together,
an' though I wos mighty hungry at th'
time, I couldn't bring myself to ac
cept of his charity. I've seen him of
ten since, but he never looks at me.
If he'd wanted to say something kind
and sociable like, why then th' takin'.

The afternoon was waning and the
wind was growing sharper. The tramp
buttoned his worn coat across his
breast and turned up the ragged vel
"How many tramps are there about
here now?" he repeated. "Now that's
mighty hard to say. This spring I've
seen just five here in St. Paul and
two o' them claimed they wos lookin'
fur jobs." The gruff voice expressed
honest scorn. "Of course the season's
a bit backward an' many more may
be here before the month is over, but
there are none that I know. I'm goin'
to strike out for some place termor
row. I only came in yesterday, but
th' first man I saw wos cross-eyed
an' the next one I saw wos smokin' a
cigarette which warned me I wosn't
goin' ter have no good luck here. Are
hoboes superstitious? Well, I dunno.
Them two things I've mentioned are
sure ter bring bad luck, but I don't
think you could call "em superstitions.
It's—it's more like experience."
The tramp rose laboriously and
stretched himself. "I dunno," he ru
minated slowly, his eyes on the river,
"it's a good enough perfession when a
feller's young, but when rheumatics
begins ter afflict th' bones an' the hair
gets white and the legs stiff—" The
tramp broke off suddenly and drew his
forlorn figure up stiffly. "WelL there's
the work'us or there's that," "he said,
pointing to the river. "I say, youn*|

PAYNE m A LITTLE
FUN WITH MR.
Postmaster general Chews
Up and Repudiates Charges
of Former Cashier of Wash
ington Postoffice — Again
Promises Everything Will
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 16.—The
formal charges of Seymour W. Tulloch
cashier of the Washington postoffice
for many years until his removal four
years ago, alleging irregularities in the
postal administration, were submitted
to Postmaster General Payne today.
Mr. Payne and Fourth Assistant Post
master General Bristow went over the
statement in detail. The postmaster
"The great bulk of the irregularities
of which Mr. Tulloch complains was
the result of the government taking
over the postal service of Porto Rico.
Mr. Tulloch refers to troubles caused
by the payment of the Porto Rican ac
counts through the Washington post
office and makes some other insinua
tions, as, for example, the promotion
of letter box schemes, etc., but there is
no evidence —nothing but words. All
that will be of any service whatever

Biggest Day Yet
33,914 Votes Cast Saturday
254,543 TOTAL VOTE CAST TO DATE
With the cfcife of the present week the Free Trip Contest will have but
three more to run. The real fighting will begin with next week,
and it is expend that fully twice as many ballots will be cast during the
remainder of the contest as were voted up to Saturday.
So far the competitors' have been content to play a waiting game, and
none of them has given any genuine indication of what he or she can
do when put to the test. It would be well for every entry in the compe
tition to bear this in mind. The real strenth of no single candidate has
been developed, and there is no telling where the latent strength is be
ing hoarded for the final dash for victory.
Tne fact that a dozen persons have a fair start should not discourage
the weakest enfry. The race is to be won during the next three weeks,
and no contestant has any the best of his competitors. There will be a
series of surprises every week from now to the close of the contest. Dark
horses are being groomed, and the standing of the entire ten competitors
who are now leading in the race may be changed at any time. Ballots
have been coming into the office of The Globe in a steady stream,
and the count each week will disclose some interesting developments. •

Explanation Certainly Needed.
"There are some thing's that, of
course, look, on their face, to be wrong,
and that need explanation. All of the
charges refer to matters pertaining to
former Postmaster General Smith's ad
ministration. It is to be presumed that
the comptroller of the treasury and
the auditor for the treasury and the
postmaster of Washington will be able
to throw some light on these matters.
"The bulk of the offenses alleged is
that vouchers were charged to the

which were not allowed by the comp

than $100. We will look into the rec

Mr. Payne said as to the charge that
physicians were carried on the rolls of

there had been fifteen or twenty such
cases in the United States. This was
a matter of administration policy and

"Mr. Tulloch," continued the post
master general, "says the trouble com
menced in the Cleveland administra

He instances the purchase of a file
case by the secretary which was paid
for out of the Washington postofflce
fund under orders of Mr. Shepherd,
then chief of the salary and allow

regular, but certainly the government
was not cheated.
"Mr. Tulloch makes statements re

soon made the fees nominal. He
speaks of the public feeling regard
ing letter boxes placed in Washing

Wilson, but the letter does not show
Mr. Wilson had any interest in the
scheme. He refers to the return pos

can be done, saying the ring consisted
of the head of the division, the first

the only ones who had anything to say
about such matters anyway. He says

Charges of irregularities there, as well as
in Washington, have already been looked

Won't Investigate a Stump Speech.
"All that Indicates any wrongdoing in
the postoffice department or in the Wash
ington postoffice involving loss to the gov
ernment or the integrity of an officer will
be investigated by Mr. Bristow, but I am
not going to investigate a stump speech
or the question whether the postmaster
of Washington should be a Wa-shingtonian
or whether Mr. Tulloch should have been
removed. The postmaster had a perfect
right to remove Mr. Tulloch.
"Much has been made of the statement
that Comntroller Tracewell called off one
of the men from an inspection of the
Washington postoffice accounts, because
it was alleged that he was reaching what
might be called 'pay dirt.' Comptroller

American dressmakers will be pleas
ed to learn "that those of their coun
trywomen who are patronizing Lon

over the prices charged by the latter.
As a matter of fact, European dress- '
makers and others often raise their
prices to American customers, be
lieving that they expect, and even
prefer, a high figure.
A critic of French women observes
that as a class they are more inter- j
esting than the men of their country.
The excitability and want of self-con
trol which most people associate with
the French temperament are not par
ticularly noticeable in the women. The
French woman, from her earliest
years, has a training apart from her
brothers. She is taught to think and
act by rule, and learns to know ex
actly what is fitting to do under ev
ery circumstance. She is simple, with
a simplicity that Is the perfection of
art grafted on natural self-possession.
The idea prevails that French girls
are generally educated in convents;
but girls of the upper classes are often
educated *at home, with supplementary
classes and courses of lectures, and
the "higher education" has made great
strides in recent years. Fewer women .
take the veil, many secure college*
degrees and large numbers are prac- i
tising medicine both in Paris and the
provinces. They make serious pro
fessions of art and journalism, and in
business they excel. French women
make a fine art of business, from the
foundress of the large dry goods
stores and kindred speculations to the
laitiere with her neat little shop, the
confectioner, the baker, all fresh and j
trim in blue cottons or snowy aprons,
and the modiste, smiling, assiduous,?:
untiring, throwing her whole heart
into her work.
The women of Petaluma, Cal., have
been the means of transforming that j
town from one of the most unattract- •
ive places in the state to one of the
most beautiful, and their work .has
attracted widespread attention, many
other cities wanting to know how it
was done. Petaluma had reserved two
pieces of property for parks, but had .
never succeeded in making any use of
them. The city trustees planted few
trees and passed a good many resolu
tions, and, pending further action, the
parks became the dumping ground for
tin cans and rubbish of all descrip
tions. At last the women took the
matter up, and, having raised some
money by entertainments and sub
scriptions, they hired men to cart
away the rubbish, grub up the stumps
and prepare the ground for blue grass
and clover. The weeds ran the grass
and clover out of existence, but the
women sowed the seed a second time.
Public interest was aroused, contri
butions poured in, and the parks be- '
came paradises of beauty, with green?,
fountains, flowers and rare shrubs, j
The women then turned their atten
tion to other parts of the town, and
are now busy supplying information
