HORDES OF TRAMPS SEEK
SHELTER AT THE CITY JAIL
With the thermometer hovering
about the zero point last night; and
icy blasts sweeping the streets with
fearful velocity, the sons of rest who
were previously unable to locate a
convenient dry goods box or a hay
mow as a bed chamber, scampered
frantically for cover, and the police
station proved to be the principle hav
en of refuge. Exactly 21 tramps were
lodged in the cell rooms last night,
this being the banner mark of the
winter. This morning, when they
were warned to continue their Jour
ney, many of the roomers were loath
to depart from the steam heated Jail.
A pumber of the nien decided to se
cure jobs cutting Ice, and a general
exodus in the direction of Rock river
marked the passing of the grand army
of the unemployed from the corporate
limits to the open country and work.

stately figures in finely laced shirts,
long skirttM coats and gold clocked

beau were modified reproductions of
