The Columbia Stato of Monday i
* morning baa the following story of
? interest to many of our readers:
u "The police had a striking example
yesterday afternoon of the 'blind
leading the blind." when a young
SOamp and a typical old lino hobo ,
were brought to the station, both eon-1
quered by too much alcohol. The J
young fellow, while loaded up to the!
' nozzle yesterday afternoon. ran i
across the hobo on a Southern railway
track and adopted him forthwith.
"The knight of the crossties was
footsore and weary and gladly wel
comed the adoption. He is partially
paralyzed and his feet are bunioned
from many ni lifts of track covered.
Under the lufiuence of being adopted
by the boozy one the hobo himself

"When Detectives Ford and Rlchard
' saw the boozy twabi, the younger
man had the lu;bo by the arm leading
him toward the city. When ques

much drink said he had arrested the
hobo because he was the yeggmnn
that figured In the double killing at
Lfturens. Admitted that he was not
nn officer, but that anybody had au
thority to arrest such a desperate
character as a yeggman.
"Hobo hadn't said anything until
his captor said that ho would have ar
rested the other yegg, but that the po
liceman killed him and he was dead.
The hobo then roused up to say, 'Yes,
"'You sec he admits knowing all i
about It,' triumphantly oxclulmed the
would.bo captor. As both wore very,
very drunk, they were taken care of '
for the night tu police headquarters.
The drunken statement by the self
appointed captor is most singular, for i
j'td as they were locked up, a me*
sane came to Chief Catheart. statin;;
that George Barton, the 1.aureus yegg
?>au. and Tennessee Dutch had es
caped from the Greenville jail. l"n

but just plain drunk."
