A MEAN TRAMP.
Late Sunday afternoon three boys, named C. PHILBRICK,
George and C. Van KEECK, were stopped near the
Congregational church by a tramp, who asked them if they
had any money. They at first denied, but catching hold of
PHILBRICK, he told him to hold up, which the boy did,
and ten cents being found in his pocket, the man took it.
He then caught George Van KEECK and took a nickel from
him, and searched his brother, who had 25 cents, but the
money was in his mouth, therefore, it escaped the tramp's
Telling the boys to move, he ran towards the river. The lads
were so terrified that they could not even cry out, and did not
give the alarm till it was too late to catch the mean villain.
(I have no connection with this family but I'd appreciate
knowing if you found this posting helpful.)
