Sheriff that many liberties were granted
him as a trusty. Instead of close con
finement in the dingy little' jail he has
been permitted to step out in the sun
shine and inhale the Japan current car
ried on ocean breezes and so thoroughly
has he enjoyed it that he is still a high
stepper in pursuit of the mystic beau
ties of nature. As the edict had gone
forth to clean up and rid the town of
trash he evidently inferred it included
the jail and acted accordingly. He left
about 9 o'clock yesterday morning. He

Reward of the Misses James of Tren
ton, N. J., For Officer, Captor of a
Burglar Who Entered Their Home.
Will Accompany Him Throughout
Tour of Europe. '.
.Numberless policemen have won med
als for bravery and devotion to duty,
but Policeman Hamilton Crisp of the
Trenton (N. J.) police force Is the first
to be rewarded with a trip to Europe
for displaying his courage on one spe
cific occasion. The occasion in ques--tion
was when he caught a burglar
who had the temerity to enter a house
ou Greenwood avenue which has long
been the home of the James sisters
Emma, Lillian and Mary maiden wo
men who have amassed a fortune con
ducting a private school for girls.
The burglar was scarcely in the
lockup . before the Misses James had
planned a novel reward for the plucky
policeman. They decided that he should
see Europe and that they should ac
company him on the trip to see that
he didn't get lost while patrolling Pic
cadilly and the Avenue Bois de Bou
logne. The Misses James and their
precious charge were passengers on
the Merlon of the American line, which
steamed from Philadelphia the . other
day. . - .
Crisp has been the happiest man in
Trenton since the three women an
nounced that they were going to take
him with them and keep him abroad
for three months. He felt so light
hearted and light headed he had to
walk sideways to keep from flying.
He told all his friends that he was
afraid to go to sleep for fear he would
wake up and find ills ocean voyage
changed into an ordinary ferryboat
trip. He is the envy of every police
man on the force. -
Many policemen have asked to be
transferred to Crisp's old beat during
his absence in the hope that burglars
may give them a chance to show that
they are entitled to a trip across the
: The three James sisters are the last
of one of Trenton's oldest families.
When they close up their school each
year they go to Europe and remain
for the summer, returning in time to
receive their pupils for the fall term..
Owing to their well known aversion
to notoriety every attempt was made
to keep the matter a secret, but It be
came; known when Crisp' asked the
board of police commissioners for leave.
of absence. He takes the three
months' vacation at his own expense.
The fact that his pay wilt be eut oft
does not bother him, because he is
said to have a large bank account. He
is the only policeman in the city of
Trenton who can afford an automobile,
and on his day of rest he tours the
streets in his machine. He is single.
Among other accomplishments, he is a
good singer and an all around athlete.
"If I brought back all the things I
have been asked to bring back it
would take the American fleet to carry
them," said Crisp just before he start
ed for Philadelphia. "All my friends
want souvenirs of the trip. The Irish
members of the department want shil
lalahs, the Germans want steins, and
one fellow had the nerve to ask me to
bring him a camel. All my women
friends have requested handkerchiefs,
collars and stuff like that When I
strike Trenton again I'll look like an
old clothes man, because I'm going to
try to remember everybody." New
