AHt G0:NG Million LUISBIM j. Their Absence Has Reduced Very Materially the Number of Robber ies and House-breakings Along Line Of The Railroads. . Maury county is receiving scant ne tice this winter from the hobo frater nity. There is hardly a hobo or tramp a month arrested in the- county now, when two or three years, ago at this) season it was a common thing for ones or two to be taken into custody every day. They simply are not about now. There are now fewer hoboes in the work house than have been in that institution in the winter in many years. For this situation thanks are due largely, according to the officers, to the building of the Lewisburg & North ern railroad. The tramps are using that line in preference to this. The? are said to be more numerous in Mar shall county than ever before, but they are assured very scarce in thfav county. The hoboes will hardly average one a month but still there are some inter esting experiences for. the officers fm making arrests. A few days ago ss, habo was taken into custody by Spe cial Officer Rlgsby and turned over to Sheriff Griffin. He was so ragged aast dirty that it was a matter of great difficulty for the officers to determln whether he belonged to the Caucasia, or the Ethiopian races. After, being; subjected to three rigorous baths an$ given a new outfit of clothes it was discovered that he was nominally or at least; when clean, a white man. Ha expressed his gratitude for being ar rested and told the sheriff that now he would be able to get a job; that before he was x so dirty and so uar kempt In appearance that he never could secure employment The absence of the tramps, who arr probably a major, portion of cases ar bent upon some criminal work, haa reduced very much the crime of hooao breaking, robbery and larceny alont the lines of the railroad In the county- RECORD CROWD AT ANNUAUJANQUET MEMBERS OF FIRST METHODIST CHURCH TO ASSEMBLE AT 7 O'CLOCK.
