A tramp entered a police station latu
ljSWdlKlltrrr-' -
There was nothing uncommon about
fh"l; lfK a thing Which tuippcns In eatii
police Htalion in the city many times during
the day and many more times during the
night. There was nothing unusual in the
apiwarance of this tramp, excepting that he
carried under his anil what looked to the
average policeman like a little coffin, lut
one of lhe musical "copjiers" recognized
thai It prolMhly had at some time or other
been u "fiddle box," though no one in th:.t
f-lallon thought that it contained at
that moment unthlng more unusual than
some cheese and bread wrapped in brown
paper and perhaps a piece or sausage and
maybe a few other cold victuals.
As Ilia tramp leaned against the go'den
rail the surrounding policemen began lo
tell of the many queer lunch boxes which
tramps have lieen known to carry. One
veteran blue coat, with a bad scar over
the eye and a few cuts about the face and a
few more memories of scraps lurking In
side his undershirt, tol.l of wbeu he was In
another precinct a holw came in with his
lJiich done up In a dress suit; another po
liceman recalled once that a vng of his ec
mi.ilutanu: carried lunch .In a hat box, and
still another "bobby," Willi a handful of
dislocated knuckes, remembered that one
or the gentry used an old gum boot for his
All these comments were heard by the
Islnnael who" stood agalust the golden
rail. He wore that air of stolid Indiffer
ence which comes lo men who have been
burfeted by Fate, either through fault
of their own or of someone else. The
keen eje, though, might have noticed
an case iu hU pose that seemed like a
hhndow of faded respettabllity. His
head was crowned with a straw hat
whkh had known the suns of summer and
the otlones of winter.
I Tangled and matted masses of tawny
l.a!r escaped through rents In the hat and
straggled out under the brim to find rest
on that part of the man where his collar
ought to have been. His coat was of that
greenish brown that barf led a guiss as to
what its first color was.
His trousers were worse than bagged
at the knees and reached only to his ankles
and dangled oer a pair of reddish rawhide
boots that never in their lives had glistened
Willi a shine. His face was lined with
inre and reddened with dissipation, but
there was a poetic. limpid, fire in his eje
and a musical modulation in his voice as he
said, and as though he had said It often
before: "Lodging."
'What's your name?" asked the desk
sergeant in the regulation tone, as he
reached for the lodgers' book, in which
were registered the names of thousands
of strangers to Washington and to work.
"Karl Vctbitskl."
"What?" said the sergeant,. "Just jou
spell that Eyetalj an .name."
"It is not an Italian name, it Is Ilusiaii,
but my Christian name is .German; my
mother was a Geiman, my lather was ait
'illegal' Hus-ian. I wci tcarednndeducaled
in Germany," Mild Karl, with a soft,
Teutonic accent.
"Iild you ay jcu tfas educated," said
a policeman, who iird Just entered with a
colored crap sl.cotcr In his grasp.
'Jt joa're ducatcd." said another, "why
don't jou go to work."
These remarks were not made In a tcry
sympathetic tone; sctr.clow or another, a
policeman cultivates an unsympathetic
tone, ecn when his breast Is bilmtnl of
sympathy, charity, and goodwill.
The stranger turned round so that his
back rested against the golden rail and
ills face beamed upon the policemen, who
sat around, puffing pipes of n.oic or less
fragrance, playing cribtage, seven-up, and
pinocliel, and tilling stciics, s cmeof which
might light a blush in a maiden's check.
The hobo was undoing the little brass
clasps of his "grub box." In doing this
he showed his hand. They were fine. hands,
somewhat tanned by exposure, but so well
kept that they stocd In stiangc contrast
to the balance of his personal appearance.
The fingers were long, nervous, and soft,
and the muc!es on that hand were wonder
fully developed. Insfcad of pulling out a
piece of cheese or fausage, he lifted up, as
tenderly as a gentle mother would her
new-born babe, an old violin. All the
polish was gone, but it had an artistic
look even In Its aged, unvarnished poverty.
As the vag threw the Instrument into
position, leaned his cheek caressingly on
it, ran those long soft fingers lovingly over
the strings and drew the bow so that the
song of a sorrowing soul seemed lo follow
it, a strange hush fell upon that station-
house, the policemen laid their cards down
as though they,mlght interrupt that music,
poncemen took their pipes from their
mouths, and even the roueh, noisy prisoners
shouting wild and vile epithets In their
grated cells, were quelled as no police
man's club ever did.
The vag was playing the sad, romantic,
dreamy "Traeumerei" of Schumann. The
policemen scarcely breathed. Policemen of
the reserve stole down from their cots
above In their stocking feet nnd peeped
from points of vantage. The tramp hardly
paused, when he proceeded to the throb
bing, ragged little "Romanza." He did
not slop there; he did not seem to see the
police around him; his eyes were half
closed and his features kept time with his
music. Then he plnjed Gottsclialk's
"Marche de Nuit" and told the story of
Flngal, full of weirdness and gloom. When
he took the violin from his cheek the desk
sergeant leaned over to the key rack, and
taking that fitting the best room in the
station, moved off, with the tramp behind

of the Police;
One of the fruitful sources of complaint
in the Fourth police precinct is the naphtha
lamps, which have replaced gas lamps In
various bhaily parts of that prcciLCt and
especially through Uloodflcld. Eveu though
these lamps burned with all their caudle
power, they could not drive away the
shadows from those dark and triiue-jtalned
regions, but these lamps, so the police
say, cannot be depended oil to burn their

covering the adjacent street with fire and
filling the citizens with terror. Then they
blow out on the slightest prot ucatiou. Dur
ing, the squall of two or three nights ago,
the police reported nearly every one of
these lamps as being out. It was said
that only those which were shelterecf from
the wind sunived the storm.
Policemen on the beats where these lumps
occur have to spend art of their time each
night In writing on the incidental book of
the stat Ion the location of the iijphtha Mmps

that it would be in the interest of law and
order If the Commissioners should put elec

Saturday NIkIii tilt- Quietest in Years,.
Sny tin I'olieemeu.
Saturday night was one of those quiet,
too cjulet, Saturday nights, when the trial
board would only wink if every i.ollit ir.au
on the force bhould Le found sleeping on
his pot.
There was not enough activity In police
circles to keep nra the ordinary lollce
inan awake. One bltiec-.Kit suggested with
a yawn that the town had br-n doped, and
another said in tired tones it was sheplng
off its Christmas' spree. The desk ser
gcanl stretched himself and opening his
ejes half way, admitted, "Hint's so."
Usually on Fnlurday nights the town goes
on a tear, but last Saturday night it didn't.

on "Hounilary Lines" yestenliy alternoon
at Foundry M. E. Church. The alfair was
under the auspices of the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union.
Dr. Wilson's address was a very lengthy
eine, consuming more than an hour, but
Its brilliancy was applauded throughout.
He began his remarks by speaking or
lhe Venezuelan boundary line question, il
lustrating the dire .elfrcts or war and
other evlls'which would surely result."
Next he spoke of the boundary bnesof
home, and vividly pictured the encroach
ments that were continually being made
by the liquor traffic.
He said that the rum shop, saloon, cafe,
drinking palace or whatever the place
might be, was always the aggiessor.
He closed his remarksby saying that
he would welcome war iu the" hemes of
ever) body against the demon rum.
Several sweet anil appropriate vocal

Ex-3uperintendent Bond spoke of the

Mr. Domer treated his subject from u
