A Sweetheart in Not Next of Kin.
Chicnpo Herald : \V. I ) . Woleh , a
traveling man , insured his life in the
Royal Arcanum for $3,000untl made the
money payable to his nltlanced bride ,
Miss il ; Uio Parke , now Mrs. Palmer.
The Arcanum wrote Miss Pnrko as the
beneficiary .although its by-laws special
ly limited benollciarics to next of kin ,
blood relations or actual dependents , to
neither of which class did Miss Parke
'oolong. A year ago Welch was f ro/on
to death in Minnesota , and Miss 1'arko
and his two brothers. Seymour C.
Welch and L. C. Welch , claimed the
insurance. It was argued for the Welch
brothers when suit was brought that the
Royal Arcanum , having no power under
itHby-hiws to make MibsParke thobeno-
Jiciary , the policy was void , and that
they took the insurance money as heirs.
For Miss Parke , Miller Ci\bo" .ludson &
Ilogan , argued that in insuring Welch ,
witli the understanding tbat the money
should bo paid on his death tolas sweet
heart , the institution contracted a lia
bility , and despite its prohibition by
laws it was estopped from refusing to
carry out his obligation. Judge Shcp-
ard decided yesterday that under the
by-laws and a decision of u conrtof Mast -
t > achusttcs , Miss Parko was not entitled
to the insurance money , and it should
go to Welch's brothers. Miss Pnrko
will appeal the case.

amusement. The result was that Mr.
Dettormann sent on his photograph ,
and the next mail westward bore her
picture to him. Then ho proposed mat
rimony. The girl carefully investigated
his case before replying and found

forthwith sent him word that , as her
parents were willing , she would bo his

hearted , with a lonesome railroad ride
of 1,042 miles before her. She expects
to moot her intended husband at St.
Paul , and they will proceed together to
their now homo , whore , if all is satisfac
tory , the wedding will take place.
Before taking the train she said that

When ho called Wednesday evening
she declined to see him. 'This mad

Ono night the rejected suitor ,
mounted ona spirited horse , ngain

BUM PARTNERS FOR AN HOUR
A Oovoy of Tramps Run Down by a
SEVEN-UP IN A COLD BOX CAR.

Tramps in n Itox Car.
EARLY every night the
police docket records the
names of tramps who
have been arrested for
sleeping in box-cari. To
see them in their btolcn
berths a BKI ; reporter
walked into several of
the local railroad yards
when the sky was ob
scured with the serge ot
"Aro .the t ramp s
trouble-some':1" : ho as > ked of a switch
' You bet they are , and they're ft
tough lot. They all carry raxors or
slung-shots , or else arm themselves
with coupling pins , ahd no switchman
has any time 'fooling' around a car that
has in it three or four of 'em , The
yard watchmen arc armed , and the
bums are afraid of their guns. When
they are driven out of. ono car they
sneak along and got into another. "
"Do you think , " queried the reporter ,
"that I could got a chance to look into
ono of the cars and have a talk with
some of them':1" :
At this the burly switchman re
lieved himself of a largo railroad laugh
and critically took in the meagre frame
of the interlocutor.
"Look a'horo , young fellow , " ho said ,
"you don't look very stout , and if those
tramps took you for a detective , or any
thing of that sort , there would bo an
other mysterious disappearance for your
pardners to write up. "
Nothing daunted , however , the re
porter got his railroad friend to take
him to the switch shanty , where ho left
his Wntorbury watch and diamond ring.
Donning an old pair of overalls , and a
battered and tattered hat and coat , ho
started down the track in the direction
pointed out as being most likely to con
tain the game ho was after. Long lines
of cars stretched out into the darkness.
The moon had just risen , and glistened
on the rails , making the shadow be
tween the lines of cars more intensely
black. As the reporter entered the
alley between the .cars , his courage
almost forsook him. Ho cautiously
moved along , now and then stumbling
over a stone or link coupling pin , and
occasionally stopping to listen , peering
into empty cars by the aid of a lighted
match. All the cars in the alley had
been examined and nothing had been
found. By this time clouds had ob
scured the moon and a drizzling rain
sot in , which was anything but en
couraging ; and the reporter heartily
wished himself back in the warm
As ho stumbled down another alley
on his way back , ho brought up short at
| the sound of subdued talking and laugh
ter coming trom ono of the cars. With
1 some trepidation ho tapped on the door
and the sounds abruptly ceased. The
door was slowly slide back and made
visible by the glare of a switch lantern ,
a bloated and dirty face , covered with
a two weeks growth of roil beard , was
thrubt through the opening.
"What in do you want ? "
"Say pard , " returned the reporter ,
"lot mo come in out of the wet , won't
"Oh , it's only you , is it ? All right ;
como up. "
A dirty , big hand was extended , and
the scribe landed on his abdomen on
the car lloor. By the light of a candle
end , which was stuck on a lodge by the
car door in homo of' its own molted
grease , four men sat around an empty
soapbox playing sovonUiri with a greasy
deck of cards. In a corner , covered
with a ragged coat , lay n boy about fif
teen years of agoi with bare feet ,
shivering witli the cold. A vol
ley of the vilust oaths issued
from a burly ruffian whoi had lost the
game , and who was reviling his part
ner , a ragged , consumptive-looking man
opposite him. Thisrthoiroportor took
in at a glance as his introducer "sized
him up. "
"Gottin1 nasty out. ain't ' it ? " queried
ono of the men at the box , after they
had all looked the scribe ovor.
"Botcher life it is , " was the roply.
The game of cards wont on , and the re
porter sat on the car lloor and looked
' Where are you ! bound for , pard ? , '
the reporter was asked by the gentle
man with the red beard.
"Tryin1 to get to Frisco for the win
ter , " he replied.
"Sav , young follow , can you buy do
boor1 asked the big rutllan , turning to
"Yes. I've got a dime if some one will
go forit , " timidly remarked the scribo.
The gentleman with the red board
promptly offered his services , but the
Wg rutllan. . laughed , and remarked
" not. " "Horo
grimly that-her "jjuesbed
kid , " ho called to the shivering boy in ,
the corner , "trot a move on you nowand
got after that beer. " The "kid" slowly
arose , and picking up a battered tin
pail , minus a handle , took the dime and
left the car.
The conversation then became gen
eral , and the reiwrtor introduced him
self as a clerk who had been bick , lost
his munition and was trying to boat his
way to California. This satislled them ,
and the proffer of the beer made him
"solid" with the gang.
When the boy came back , the cards
were gathered up , and , after being
carefully wrapped up in a dirty piece of
paper , were stowed away in the pocket
of the "nifllan. " The man with the
red beard , in an aside to the reporter ,
informed him'that the ' ruffian was a
"dead hard man. " The conversation
turned to the police , who were roundly
cursed by all except the consumptive
man , who was too busy coughing. The
beer can was making the rounds , the
rod-bearded individual always manag
ing to get the lion's share. After the
liquid had been disposed of , the big
man , the red-bearded individual and
their companion , a dricd-up little fel
low whoso clothes merely hung upon
his frame , disposed of themselves for
the night , and the reporter and the
gentleman with the cough entered into
"How did you come to bo in this fix ? "
asked the latter. "What has been your
experience ? " '
"My exporiencol" he said ruminat-
ingly "iny experience has been a tough
one. It would make an interesting
story if written out. I've seen both
gootl and hard times , but now I'm what
is called a 'bum telegraph operator , '
and have 'jerked lightning' in nearly
every city in the country , from coast to
coast. Exciting businessi WcllI I
smile it was sometimes. " Here the
"bum telegraph operator" indulged in
a hard lit of coughing , from which ho
emerged exhausted. After ho had
rested , he continued : "Tho most ex
citing time I over experienced was
when I was dispatching trains on a cer
tain road in Ohio. To make a long
story short , I was a pr'otty hard drinker
in those days and ono night I came on
duty pretty 'lush. ' After lighting my
pipe , I tilted back in my chair and
made myself comfortable for the night.
1 dozed off and was awakened by the
conductor of an out-going train asking
for orders. Half asleep , and still fool
ing the effects of the whisky I had im
bibed , I gave him orders to 'pull out , '
and resumed my pipe. I had about set
tled myself for another snooze , when
the next station out called mo up
of 'wild' train
to report the departure a
coming in. What had I done ? Given
orders that would run two trains to
gether , the incoming train and an 'ex
cursion , ' filled to overflowing with pas
sengers from all along the line , who
were taking advantage of the cut rates
to attend the county fair. Toward off
a collision was now impossible. What
should I do ? For ton minutes , I was
paralyzed with fright , then the shock
sobered mo and I realized the enormity
of my neglect , and resolved to lly. I
thought of the penitentiary , and a pos
sibly long detention jn jail before trial ,
and , well I skipped. 1 took all the
money in sight , walked twenty-four
miles to another road , and made my way
south. I changed my name , and have
boon 'pounding brass' over since in
commercial ollicos , not daring to trust
myself to railroad work.
' "Ycsl the trains came together , and I
afterwards read in the papers a descrip
tion of the accident , as it was called. It
was not so bad as I anticipated , only ono
man , a brakeman , being killed. I con
cealed my identity , but my conscience ,
for I have ono , has been pounding at mo
all those years , and whisky is the only
thing that strangles it. In my time , I
was ono of the best operators in the ser
vice , but I am getting pretty 'shaky'
now , and they say I 'send pretty bad
Morse. ' I suppose I'll 'cash in' pretty
soon , and I don't care how soon it is. "
Here the 'bum operator' was seized
with another violent paroxysm of cough
ing , and the reporter , with a hurried
