A MYSTERIOUS MAN.
From a Thread or so a Very Eye-Catch-Ing-
1'arn may be Span.
One cold morning nineteen years
ago, as the hack rolled into the Ger
man colony of Warthurg, Tenu., a
stranger stepped out, and, carrying
on his .shoulder a square box and
valise, approached the inn of the
place and asked for hoard and lodg
ing. He was eyed suspiciously on
account of his 'rough appearance,
saint baggage and nervous manner,
lie was taken in and given a room.
When he got inr-ide lie locked the
door .securely and fastened the win
dow shutters. What he did in the
room and what he came there for has
not been revealed to the people until
a stranger came through the place a
few days ago, after nineteen years of
companionship with him. lie occu
pied the loom and always locked it,
carrying the keys with him. After
being with the jieople some time he
was asked to participate in their
pleasures and asemblie. He gave
his name as Sinclair and would enter
tain them with marvelous tales of
travel and adventures, claiming to
have been a sea captain. He soon
became a gieat favorite with the co
ple, but his mysterious ways and
manners kept them away from him
somewhat. He was of a nervous
temperament and was always watch
ing for some one. When "the hack
would arrive he would always leave
the crowd until it had gone and the
passengers housed. His dress was
of the coarsest material. He wore his
beard long and a large hat with a
brim down over his eyes. The vil
lage gradually grew larger and new
arrivals were made daily. His anx
iety increased and he began to lead
the life of a recluse, and when he
came out would always listen and
never utter a word.
One of his peculiarities was to al
ways leave a party that began to dis
cuss the war. One day he became
almost crazy with fear and seemed
to be searching for something he
had lost. He was seen to have
dropped a paper, which was picked
up. In it was contained the account
of the assassination of Lincoln by
Booth. When he was asked what it
was he had lost he replied something
that interested him as much as his
life." The paper was afterward slip
ped near his door. When he discov
ered it the shock made him ill. lie
took to his bcdand was delirious for
several days. In his room wtis the
square box he had been seen to bring
with him. It was a desk. Of this
he raved in his wild delirium and
stated that in the drawers were dis
closures that would astonish the
whole country, but the keys wero
tried around his neck. He called the
names of Spangler", Harold, Atzerott,
Payne and Mudd, and said his name
was Booth. "When he got well and
was told of his wild talks he was
startled and denied ever having said
such words, lie lived afterward in
the same mysterious manner until
one day last week, when a gentleman
from Fredericksburg, Va., was pass
ing through the mountains with a
party inspecting the coal deposits, and
stopped at the hotel. Sinclair was
walking across the street when the
wind blew his hat off..
The gentleman who was standing
at a window uttered an exclamation
and said: "Heavens! can that be
Erastus Booth, the brother of J.
Wilkes Booth? The last time I saw
him was nineteen years ago in Wash
ington, during the excitement of the
assassination of Lincoln." The peo
ple gathered around to hear his story
of the last time he saw him, and to
tell of his mysterious coming nineteen
years ago. After listening to the two
narratives the conclusions were that
he was the man. The next day,
while out walking, Sinclair was pass
ing a partv, when one of the number
called: "Hello, Booth !" He stopped
suddenly, involuntarily turned his
head, caught himself and proceeded
on his walk. That night he quietly
stole away in the darkness with his
desk and baggage. I lis going was as
mysterious as his coming. He has
not been heard of since.

One of the most novel marriages in
the history of Norwood took place
last week. The applicants were a
lady and gent of the ebony hue. The
young Justice of the Peace, who is
very conversant with the law, but a
little inexperienced in performing
marriage ceremonies, proceeded to
unite the happy pair. His face bore
marks of excitement, and, in a ner
vous tone, he bade the two join
hands. This they did, joining, how
ever, their left hands, and were made
one. The joyous couple, then pro
ceeded to depart, whereupon the fol
lowing conversation ensued :
J. P. Where's my fee ? You didn't
expect me to marry you for nothing,
Groom (excitedly) "W'y boss, I
ain't got a cent! How much do you
charge? I didn't know I had to pay
J. P. "$2.50. I'll just keep your
wife here until you go and get the
amount." (At the sums time bidding
the blushing bride to take her seat.)
Groom. "Well, I'll try to got it."
Off he went to procure an order
from his employer, but, staying
rather long, the bride moved restless
ly toward the door.
"Take your seat," was heard in
solemn tones from the Justice of the
She complied, but what Ker feel
ings must have been can't lie easily
described. However, the groom re
turned in due time, settled :ho hill
and took his "pawned" bndo bome
