On Tuesday morning of this week a bum, walking on crutches, "struck" us as we entered the office, for "the price of a meal," but he left the office in the same condition financially as when he entered . He was not baffled, however, but continued to "strike" all passers-by with a persistency that would entitle him to the office of president of any band of hobos. Then he commenced to make a house-to-house canvas of the town, and, we have been informed, succeded in se curing quite a large amount of change. But he "played his band" too high and, as a natural consequence, was given fifteen minutes to get oat of ton by the officers. It subsequently came to the knowledge of several sympathizers of the "poor cripple" that he was seen coming into town early in the morning carrying his scratches and high-heel boot under his arm, and that he was president of a band of hobos who were in camp below town.
