some peppermint drops and handed them
to her, saying that it was a burning
shame to arrest a lady like her lor merely
hitting another woman on the ear with a
shovel. She was quiet for a lew minutes
and then broke out again, and the root
of the station seemed to be raising up.
Bijah offered her a pound of gum drops,

I won'tI won't!" she shouted, dancing
up and down and taking a fresh start.
He drummed on the coal-scuttle with the
axe to drown her voice, but the voice
drowned the scnttle. He put the

to drown her, but she shnt

"Read what!" she exclaimed, suddenly
ceasing to scream. "The Beecher-Tilton ,

what everybody is talking about" "Jfo; .
where Is It T" she asked, and he passed in
the paper, telling her that if she would be

moment until daylight the woman never
uttered a word, except once when ?he 1
asked if there weren't seven or eight more

(From the Detroit Free Press.)
Friday evening a woman about thirty
years old was arrested in the Western
district for disturbing the peace, and the
event almost distracted her, although she
had seen me inlide of a cell before. She
began howling and weeping as aoonas
she was locked up, and Bijah, the janitor
of the Plinth avenue station, felt his heart
getting tender. He offered her a harvest
apple, but she merely stopped long enough
to see what it was, and then went on crying
out: "I am dying, I know I am!"
