St. Johns has no vagrancy law, and
.having aecured a full Una of vagrants,
the .troubles of the town marshal havs
, Increased. The town Jail was not con
structed for-constant use and wnen
prisoners are kept In the cells a guard
.has to remain or) the scene to prevent
them burning the wooden shack, or from
i cutting their wsy out As the taak of
sitting up all night with a tramp does
not appeal to the marshal, he merely
urges Idle visitors who build camp fire
In handy lumber yards and capture
stray chickens for an evening meal to
move on. .and an tiour later finds them
- tn another corner of town, with another
fire and a few more (owls on the spit
On three aides of fit. Johns are woods,
brush tracts and waste land that offer
excellent hiding places to the crowds' of
hoboes who tourney out from the city.
".Traces of camp fires, with battered
tin cans and chicken bones as evidence
ef the character of the feast, may be
found all through the peninsula and
from the coverts the tramps make thelt
raids on farm houses and on the mors
isolated of the town residences. A rock
pile, a good vagrancy law and a aultabl
Jail are three things the town will add
to Ita municipal equipment when the
money Is available, but until that time
St. Johns will be something of a para
dise for tramps.

The original offer made by the com

honor. Afterwsrds she came to Butte
and married McEvoy, . - .
Anderson traced her to her home and
threatened to shoot her. Although he
wss erased with drink she did not tak
his threst seriously, as be had made
them before. The next evening, how
ever, he returned and entering the
house quietly went, to the bed where
Mrs. McEvoy was lying -and holding
the revolver to her neck pulled th
trigger. The bullet glanced and struck
the rhln bone. Inflicting only a super
