Tie Up to This Man Girls, One
From tho Williamsburg Grit.
In my rambles tho other day I
discovered a model husband in the
Third ward. He is a young man
and bound to bo wealthy. Recently
when people were all excitement
over Burnuin's lmiry family, Paul
Boyton and the glittering parapher-
nalia of the circus, ho labored all
day at his regular occupation. Af-
ter supper he spent three hours
posting up books for a near-by
merchant, receiving $1.50 for his
labor. He then went homo, took
up a parlor carpet, cleaned the
floor, beat the carpet, put it down
again and rearranged the room
before retiring. The next morn-
ing he was up at 5 o'clock, and
worked an hour and a half in his
garden, going to his meals smiling
and happy. I saw him as busy as
ever in the store where he is em-
ployed, and as he was calculating
on cleaning a couple of rooms at
night. He looks strong and
hearty and says ho never feels
fatigued. Girls, that's tho kind of
a man to tie to. By a little strato
gy he might be induced to do all

One of the next things to be
considered by tho Reform County
Commissioners is the questtou of
a superintendent of the asylum and
infirmary, to take tho place made
vacant by the arrest of Warden
Frey. II. A. Jones is spoken of
in this connection, as he has had
several years experience as chief

told me it was nothing unusual to
find bodies of two or. three chil-
dren iu coftlns of ndults. I began
to investigate and found twelve
children packed liko surdinea iu
a dry-goods box and a baby's
body in a box of refuse from a dis-
secting room. Tho undertaker
who did this was Francis Chaffee
who wus paid a fair price for each
body taken out there. As a re-
sult of this I came near being dis*
charged again, and had to allow
Chaffee to do as he pleased lu

Ho furnished valuable aid to the
State in the recent investigation.
He is full of information as to how
Bipper and some other contractors
the swindlino scheme
as far back as 188.1. His story of
the boodle is most interesting.
He says: "When I first went out
to the asylum in 1881, being sent
out by II. C. Sciennie, I opened a
set of books for the asyluui and
the infirmary, nono having been
kopt prior to that time. During
the three years I was thero it never
cost more than $154,000 a year to
run both institutions. Last year
it cost about $200,000 to the asylum
alone. The first man that I dis-
covered doing crookod work was
William Kolzc, who was delivering
milk that showed fully CO per cent
of water. Of oourso I refused to
accept it, and as he would not
take it back it remained all day.
Kolze's son was very mad next
day aud threatened to do me up if
I ever repeated tho offense. When
I siw Kolzo again he said he would
furnish better milk and did so for a
long time, until some of tho com-
missioners took the milk business
off my bands. Kolsse after that de-
livered swill milk for the paupers
and cream for the boodlers' table.
My experience was that no man
could be Btrictly honest aud hold
a position of trust. During the
past four or five yenrB Bipper run
with a high nAND.
After I had been there a short
timo Storekeeper G. W, Reynolds
was discharged. The night be-
fore he committed suicide he said
he was discharged because Bip-
per did not like him. Then I had
weighed Bipper's meat in every
load. Ho would have corned
beef. This sometimes consisted of
pig noses, shin bones, scraps of
mutton nther meat wbich
would spoil on bis bands. He
then threw it into flour barrels,
sprinkled a little salt on it and
called it corn beef. I sent the
stuff back, together with some
quarters of beef which were fairly
rotten. After sending back this
meat for two week I was discharg-
ed. No one knew why. The
man who took my place was a
friend of Bipper named Hack-
inann. He had too much con-
science though and left uftcr tell-
ing mo he did not want to do any
such dirty business for anybody.
Hackmann is now a Pullman cur
conductor. Then Jim Gleason
went out. There wus no trouble
with Bipper's meat from that on.
After I was sent back through
tlio intervention of II. C. Sune and
Dave Clark. I was asked by
some friends of a man who was
drowned in tho lake to exhume
the remains. That's where
the cemetery scandal
started. Wheu I opened tho cof-
fin there wore tho bodies of two
little children crowded in between
uot afraid to do it!" asked one of
the ladies. " Oh, do ; for my part,"
the captain replied," I have be*
come so used to sueb things that
I could take my dinner on an altar
as comfortably as elsewhere."
" Aud so would a hog, sir," snid
Mr. Randolph. Iu tho silence
that followed this terrible thrust

seemed to tingle as the nerves of
the guests did. [J. R. Tabb, in
