I was not a tramp, but I had to be
come the next thing to one In a sense.
With my linvlng been ill una out of
work for months, with my bofn? penni

my asking for a meal hero and a bed
thoro ns I tramped tho highways be

Ono night, In tho county of War
wick, I came upon n fanner who had
neither wlfo nor children, but was
Bring alone on his small holding. Ills
rnmo was Holbornc, nnd, though gruff
nt tlrst, ho flnnlly gave mo a hearty
supper and tho prlvllcgo of passing
the night In his bam. When supper
was finished and he had heard my
Btory. ho offered mo a pipe, and wo
sat at his door and smoked nnd chat
ted for an hour. It was agreed that I
should turn to next morning and work
with him in his Holds for half u month.
While wo Were chatting, a neighboring
farmer named Saunders camo up and
halted for flvo minutes, nnd two others
passed on tho highway nnd saluted
Ilolbomo with a good evening. It was
10 o'clock beforo I went to tho barn,
and, being tired and sleepy, I wns soon
in dreamland. How long I had nlept
when I was awakened by tho sound of
voices In anger, I could not say, but I
henrd what seemed to bo a quarrel be
tween Holborne nnd another man. Tho
votco of the other was high pitched
and had a catch In it. It was not a
stammer, but a sort of gasp, as if
catching his breath. I wns not fully
aroused, nor did tho quarrel continue
It was sunrise next morning when I
woko and turned out. The houso wns
only about flvo rods nway, and aftor
looking ubout to sco If Holborne were
in sight I moved along to the house.
His dead body wns on the grass before
tho open door, ne lind boon struck on
tho head with a club and killed by u
slnglo blow. I wns upset by tho dis
covery, as you mny believe. After
touching his face and finding It cold 1
started off on tho run for tho nearest
farmhouse, half a mile away. The
farmer was milking, his cow, and his
wife was preparing breakfast, but they
returned with tno nt once, nnd other
neighbors were called, and a boy was
sent off to tho nearest police station.
I told my story to tho people, and o,U
believed mo. as why should they not
when Saunders was among them? And
yet when tho police enme their very
first move was to arrest mo as the
murderer. A trnmp had passed lhe
night In tho barn. Of course ho tnimp
had murdered tho farmer.
If you ngrco that tho police were
asses you will agree tbat tho others
woro fools. No sooner was I charged
with tho murder than all turned
ngalnst me. Saunders suddenly re
membered thnt our conversation was
heated as ho camo up. Tho two who
passed by thought they hoard mo uso
threatening language. A farmer whom
I had not seen nt nil the evening be
fore clnlmed to havo como near enough
to tho house to havo beard mo ask
Uolborno for tho loan of 2. I was an
gered, but not frightened. I nsked tho
police to investigate my bed on tho
straw, and they found it still warm. I
asked them to look through tho house,
and they found nothing disturbed. I
asked them to noto that the body was
cold, nnd tho doctor who was sum
moned snld that life had been extinct
for seven or eight hour.
1 was examined by n mngtstrate,
who said I would no doubt get my
Just deserts, and tho pollco mado no
move whatever to find another party.
Even tho Jailer and tho turnkeys
chuckled over tho hanging thnt must
result. I told of having heard tho
quarrel, but they said I Hod. I told
of tho arrangements mado to go to
work for Ilolbomo In tho morning,
but they smiled In derision.
I was almost ready for tho assizes
and the hanging when n iierson, whoso
identity I do not know to this day and
who must havo been moved by a spirit
of fairness, sont mo a lawyer and gavo
tho lawyer money to work with. Presto
change! Why, n bom fool could havo
picked up tho threads of the enso and
cleared me. Within six hours after 1
had told tho lawyer of tho quarrel and
tho man with tho catch In his voice
they had tho murderer spotted, nis
namo was Jamison, nnd tho quarrel
was over tho leaso of tho farm, and
tho club with which ho had dollvered
tho blow, having lost his temper, but
not meaning to kill, wns found In his
houso. More than thnt, ho broko down
nnd mado a full confession, nnd when
