Scott county hu a veritable wild
man within its fertile confines. For
the past week rnmori of a strange
specimen o! human kind have spread
aronnd in the vicinity of Mt. Joy and
the freak was described in a dozen
different shapes, forms and condi
tions. It however, remained for the
various train erews on the Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul road running
into Davenport, to see him in all his
wierd and uncomely style of beauty.
His rendezvous is by the side of the
railway track about two miles south
east of Mt. Joy. A hollow is his
habitation and a half score of cast
away railway tie his boon compan
ions. Invariably he faces toward
the west, probably iostiated in
so doing by a native antipathy
towards water. His brunette locks
are of a chrysanthemum shagginess.
and frequently f row zed and furrowed
by hyperborean breezes. His rai
ment is as simple as bis habits, and
consists mainly of a pair of overalls,
an 1 his skin is of an apalling shade
of dust-defying brown. His face has
a wo'iliah appearance and his eyes a
gleam and glitter that betoken mad
ness As if to show his aesthetic
disposition, be keeps a fire burning
to cheer his sileot vigils, and when,
ever a train aoproaches his abode he
assumes a recumbent position and
eyes his watchers with a tierce
So startling has his persistent stay
become that tbe police of Davenport
have been notified, and while one
trip has been made in vain by them
another will stionly be taken, and
