' The lax enforcement of the Tramp laws has caused a good deal of trouble to Perry County of late, years. A Justice of the Peace In New Bloomfleld, In order to make business for himself and reap the fees al lowed for the commitment of tramps to Jail ovor night, at one time gave a "cbromo" in the shape of a ten-cent plug of tobacco to all tramps who applied to him for a commitment. Peelers were also employed in the outlying districts to direct trumps to this particular Justice, and it was not an unusual thing for tramps, when they arrived in town to ask: "Where Is the office of that 'Squire who gives a eomniltment to jail and throws In a plug of tobacco!'" It was not long before a rival Justice went into the "cbromo" business, and as a conaequonce the fees for harboring tramps swelled up into hundreds of dollars for a single month. Although New Bloomfleld Is six miles distant from the railroad and there is no diroct communication with any of the points of the compass, the town was overrun with tramps, as many as sixty being in jail at one time. One able-bodied tramp aud his wife, who remained In jail an entire winter, returned the following winter and again sought accommodations at the hospitable prison and its well-filled larder. They were denied admittance, which so enraged the husband that he sent a large bowldor crashing through the parlor window of a Main street residence. He succeeded In gaining admittance to the prison, but only for repairs, as he was clubbed half to death by the enraged housoholiler and his son. A laughable Incident occurred at the ex pense of one of tho Justices in question. Observing a rough-looking man pn the street the official fuihed out of bis office and rudely aocoated him with: "Do you want to go to jail and get a plug of tobac co?" The rough-looking man was a well-to-do farmer, and It was only by the in tervention of mu.ual friends that the 'squire was saved a thrashing. As a last resort the County Commissioners refused longer to pay for the keeping of tramps, since which time but few of the turnpike sailors have guided their craft Into this port, A FAIR SUICIDE. One Distracted Wife Who Vainly Tried to iMwtroy If ereelf With Coffee. N. Y. Morning Journal ' Talking; ebon the aulrlde mania," aald Dr. J. T. U'Orady, of Brooklyn, last night, "I cured one lady pretty effectu ally the other night "I had had a very busy day and was just taking a rest when a man rushed In and said his wife had taken poison. Of course I had to run out, as the fellow said the woman was nearly dead. "When I got to the bouse there was my lady lying on her face and aa motlonleu as a statue, As I turned her over I felt her pulse, and found It la splendid condi tion. Nevertheless, she simulated insensi bility splendidly. "I shook hor, but she didn't budge. Her terrified friends showed me a cup that contained the poison. I looked at Ik Then I pried her Jaws open, and poured some sweet oil down her throat, "She was a very lively suicide for a few minutes, I assure yoo. Bbe abused me roundly and said she wanted to die and she would die. She defied me to save her. " 'What kind of poison did you taker I asked. Was it arsenlcr' u 'Yes, she answered, that's It' "You're a fabricator,' says L Yoo took nothing of the kind. It was merely coffee, That was what was In the "poi soned "coffee.' "She denied It Ah, she had taken ar aenie and she was going to dla She wasat going to live any longer to be abused by her husband. " 'Very well,' I said.

They had been quarreling and she wanted to bring him to terms. " 'No,' I said, 'you confessed you took arsenlo and I'll have yon arrested.' Then she begged me again and cried, and said she: 'I'll never do It again.' "When I left husband and wife were forgiving each other and pledlng eternal affection. I felt like having her arrested for ruining my rest, but I gave her a wholesome score." About Celery. N.T.Sun.

A SENATOR'S GHOST STORY. Bow Mr. Ransom, of " North Carolina, " Solved a Weird My.tery. Washington Cor. Augut.a (Go.) ChronlceL There Is an element of superstition In all mankind. In most case Senator Ransom, of North Carolina, has very clear, cogent, and practical Idea, hut he lost his balance once. ' His house burned down, not so very long ago, nothing remaining but thechlru oeys and some charred beams around them, except a fragile stairway. The Senator and his family romoved to an other residence, a short distance from the old home, and in full, melancholy view of It' One night, when the moon was young and feeble the negroes on the place ran affrighted to the Senator and told him that they bad seen ghost walking on the top of the burned dwelling, or rather darting swiftly all about itl Their terror waa genuine, and did not abate when be laughed at their story, and proceeded In bl vivid diplomat lo way to demonstrate that hobgoblins were mere projections of a disturbed and fanciful stomach. He was begged to come out and lee for himself. Yielding to entreaty, he stepped outside and looked toward the ruin. The long chimney stood gaunt and forlorn. The blackened rafters were discerned, cob web-like, against the misty hor Lion. But no sign or life or motion could be dotected. Soon, however, a wild chorus of prayerful and tearful ejaculations came from the ne gross, interspersed with muffled cries of "Look dor, Mas'r Matt Look dar!" The General, who had faced bullets and Con gressmen, nowise daunted, cos', a sharp glance as directed toward the skeleton of his bouse. He was amaxed to see white spectral, quick-flashing phantom chasing each other over the chimney and along the remnant of the roof. A cold chill Invaded hi spinal marrow, but pull lng himself together, he said: "Let 01 all go together and find out what It is." Th negroes would not budge. Finally the General said: "If yoo are too cowardly to go there I will go by myself. The negroes took hold of him with affectionate violenc e and Implored him to remain. Disengaging himself he stated to them that he would penetrate the mystery If he died in the at tempt He confeesed afterward that hi heart beat tumultuously la his breast and goosefleah grew on his backbone, but noth ing could have obstructed him hort of dissolution. He marched to th haunted houae Intrepidly, but with more mis givlngs than he bad ever experienced when receiving the onset of mortal too man In th ranks of war. The apparitions continued to scamper about and appeared to asaame gigantic propore Hons. -ire TvwemrtpW -Booth's Hamlet and all th weird stories of hi boyhood with tartllng perspicacity. He began to see all his sins in their processional enormity. God never before seemed o majeetle and virtue so real and attractive. Finally, with big beads of sweat on his brow and his brain In a whirl, he reached a spot very close to the spectral house and awaited further development. All was stilL He picked up a stone and sent It crashing among the splinters of the roof. Then there waa a mighty rush of most sub stantlal figures, and down from th giddy eminence poured a column of goats, led by a venerable and Ul-imelllng Billy. There wa an Instantaneous reaction upon the General's part, and he laoghed until his side ached. Going back to the ter rified gentlemen of African descent, be rallied them bole teroo sly upon their rldlo uloos fear and abject cravennees, ending with th Injunction that when they started any mora ghost to give him th contract of dispersing them, as he was "born In sensible to fear, and would eat th Witch of Kndor on toast, If parboiled and well flavored.

I ' hated to see Governor Berry withdraw from the field, but when I saw it must be I looked about me, and took the thing under con dderatlon, and thought on It I thought long and carefully over It, and I slept with It Laughter. I saw I must cast my vote for some one else, and I must make a choice of the other candidates. I'll tell you how I did it I looked over the field. I have met the other two, and I bad tudled them. I met th Hon. Polndexter Dunn and I saw In him many good point. I saw a fine head on him (I greatly admire a fine head) and I saw tn him a great coming man. But I tell yon what did the work for me.

The room wa full of beautiful women. 1 , dldnt know hardly what to do, but she sat by the piano and I asked her to play a Uttle tana tt f at aw n-erl la-ked her that very thing asked her if aheeonld play 'My Old Cabin Home.1 She said she would If I would sing a verse of It, and I said I'd try.

They crowded around, and right there I stood and I song th verse. Cries of "Sing sing give us th verse." All right, gentlemen, to accommodate you I'll sing It," and, clearing his throat, the gentleman from Benton struck up bear tone solo and sang: We'll hunt no more th grlxsly j In th nook, , We'll leave the canon all, Bo dry; We'll diink no more of the I Clear crystal brook, 80, my log cabin home, good-by. ' A the "good-by" floated up among the cobwebs in the dome of the hall, the densely-packed throng burst Into cheers and shouts, a tornado of applause shaking the olda house, while burst ot laughter broke out like thunderbolts, and hand clapping sounded Ilk hall among th con fusion.
