AN EX-TRAMP'S STORY.
WHY HE NEVER CAN REFUSE A
POOR FELLOW A QUARTER.
II Went U 8m Hia Sweetheart and Had to
Steal a R its Home An Escaped Coovtct
Kxrhansjia Clothing with IIIiv Hla K
uerteiMw In Actual Tramping.
One of th a gentlemen took a quarter from
bia pneket and (mnded it to the old man, at
the wuiie til le sayiug to bia friends that be
could never refuse a tramp money, because be
bad (infe a tramp himself He was im
mediately aaailtnl ty a storm of Inquiries,
and liiuillv told this story of hia strange ex
Itarieiuw You gentlemen mny not know, be said,
that at oik time I was a clerk bore in At
lanta. I diil i't like standing behind acounter
all day and I found it especially bard work
to keep my mind on my business, because all
my thoughts were taken up by a dear girl
who lived a Ion way off. Jt was my babit
logo down twice a month to see her. 1
would leavt- Atlanta Saturday afternoon,
spend Sund y w ith her and return in time
for work Monday morning. Tbeae little
triw used up all my sjiare cash and I was
kept in acoi'Htaut state of dead broke. A
time came a hen I hail to buy a new suit of
clothe, and when 1 bail paid for them 1 had
Just enoiiK a money loft to buy a railroad
ticket to the place where my sweetheart lived I
and return. I tliought nothing of that, now
ever, as I wis in the habit of staying with
the young la lya rather over the one night 1
remained. As lutd luck would have it, when
I reached thn place the house was full of com
pany and I was obliged to go to the hotel 1
didnt sleep much and didut have a very
good time. The next day 1 was thinking all
the time hew I was going to get Iwclc. 1
thought 1 would borrow the money from the
girl's father 1 hated that so much that 1
concluded to jump my hotel bill instead.
RBSl'LT Or A RKIRHT IDEA.
Suddenly I. bright idea occurred to me. 1
could pay my bill, leave like a gentleman and
then hide in tn empty freight car, and so r&
turn to Atlanta. That night 1 said good-'
at the usual ' line and left for the depot. But
instead of tul iug the passenger train lsliped
around and c rawled into a box car. After a
long wait I t eard aome one running over the
roof of the ci,r, and soon after we pulled out.
It was rough riding, but finally I grew sleepy
and, placing my traveling bag under my
head, lay down, i could see the stars through
the open dov and lay there and watched
them, thinking of the dear girl I bad left be
hind me, until, worn out by anxiety, I fell
1 must ha slept very soundly, because 1
bail only au indistinct sensation of stopping
several timet and backing, with occasional
severe jolts. After one of these stops I must
of half awaleued, because I seemed to see a
man's bead koking into the car. Just as we
were moving ahead again the head rose until
a complete man seemed outlined between me
and the shini ig stars ouUide. I started up,
feeliug sure some oue wan in the car besides
myself. It as dark as pitch, except just by
the open doo ', and I could distinguish noth
ing. 1 called aud asked if any one was there,
but received no answer. Then I thought it
was all a dream and lay down again and
went to sleep
I was rudi ly awakeuod by a kick in the
ribs, and as I tried to rbe something struck
me on the be td, knocking me flat. Then 1
beard a voice out of the darkness, tolling me
take off my c otbes or ray brains would be
knocked out. I tried to remonstrate, but
another blow on the head was my only an
swer. When 1 came to myself I was quite
naked, and si .ting in the door I could see the
figure of a num. As 1 moved he sprang up
and came to where I was lying. He kicked
towards me t le clothes be had himself taken
off and toM nie to pnt them on. It was too
dark to see an .thing, besides 1 was bewildered
by the blows in the head and very cold, so 1
did as I was t IJ- This figure which I could
indistinctly at e stood by with a club ready to
strike until tl e train began to slow, then he
ran to the do r aud jumped out.
ID A TIGHT FIX.
Finally we reached a station, and I saw
a man run oit from the depot and say a
few words to the train tiauils. Then the
whole party c wie toward the place where 1
was concealed, and as they did so I beard a
few words, uuong them "convict" "tele
graphed" "dscaped" "this train" were
plainly distinguishable. Suddenly a bright
light flashed into my car and I heard them
all cry, "He's here!" Then half a dozen men
jumped in. sel ied me aud dragged me into the
depot. For a moment the light in the room
blinded mo af jer the darkness. Then I caught
sight of my own figure in a small glass over
the mantelpie'-e and started back with hor
ror. I was di essrd in the striped clothes of a
convict. I t iil to explain, but the men
would not listen to me. They threw me into
a small closet and locked the door. I could
bear ray raptors talking on the outside, and
the station ouster told how a notorious crim
inal had escap-Hl from a convict camp down
below, and bo. he bail been telegraphed to
search every train for him, as it was thought
be might have concealed himself in a box car
to (? away. -
The next m ruing a man came who said he
was a sheriff, and put haudcufTs on me and
took me to jail. I tried to talk to him and
tell him all u y troubles, but he would not
listen to ma .ie told me, however, that some
one from the rison camp from which I was
supposed to have escaped, would be np that
evening aud ake me back. My situation
was very hard. I entered that car only in
tending to stet 1 a ride, and I was taken from
it a convicted ind sentenced burglar.
That night the convict camp keeper ar
rived, and as on as be saw me be began to
swear frightfully. Ue told them 1 was not
the man be wanted. Then they began to be
lieve my story, but even then they only be
lieved it in pat t They concluded that I was
a tramp trying to steal a ride and scouted
the idea of n y being a gentleman. Early
the next morjiiug they gave ok aome old
clothes, very rigged and dirty, and a pair of
old shoes, and told me to clear out. I didnt
knew a soul hi the place, and every one 1
asked for help turned away from me with
some remark i.bout the cheek of a tramp
Finally I wai forced to really become a
tramp and made my way home on foot, I
tried to steal another ride on a freight train.
but they fount: me and kicked me off, so 1
walked all tha way home, begging a little
food by the wry. It took me two duys to do
It. Fortunate y it was night when I arrived
here. 1 slippe 1 into my room like a thief and
1 did not feel l.ke an honest man again until
I had taken a uath and burned my tramp's

senators, "tha ; that little trip cured yon of
