A case of subsistence without food for an
extraordinary length of time was discover
ed at a transfer depot of the Pennsylvania
Railroad on Monday afternoon. A brake
man who had occasion to pats a box car
standing upon the siding heard a peculiar
Doise issuing therefroih. He unlocked the
door to make an examination, when he dis
covered a man lying on the floor. Upon
approaching the man he discovered that he
was In an exhausted condition, having been
so reduced, evidently by the lack of food,
that he was scarcely able to arise. He was
carefully lifted from tbe car and stimulants
were given him, the poor wretch devouring
all that wa» placed before him with a greed
iness that was astonishing to behold. A
quantity of provender sufficient to satisfy
three hungry men was quickly stored awav,
and after the man had satiated himself he
was allowed to telntls story. He said that
wishing to make his way to this city, and
having no means wherewith to pay his trav

and had a friend lock the door. He entered
