E. church. Sun-, day morning, comprised a very attractive concert and responsive reading exercise, admirably rendered by the Sunday-school.

In ­ quiries fail to show that they sought assist ­ ance in any other direction, so the ill-sorted couple must have left town in blessed singleness. A TRAMP ’ S SAD END. • Mrs. Morgan, widow of George Morgan, who was turnkey at the county jail several years agb. resides in a house located above the Boston and Albany railroad tunnel m the town of Canaan. About four weeks ago she locked up her house and went on a visiting trip. When she returned last Wednesday she was. star ­ tled to find her home occupied by a. dead man, who must have been lying- in the house for some time. He was stretched on the floor face downward. His feet were in a terrible condition, covered with blood and horribly frost-bitten, and about the house where he had walked the bloody foot-prints showed how terrible his suffer ­ ings must have been . Ashes in the. stove showed that he had started a fire to warm himself, and every morsel of food in the house had been devoured. Access to the house , had been gained by breaking a lower window sash. At first the theory of a possible murder was entertained, but the condition of the body and surroundings indicated that the man was a tramp who had sought refuge in the house during the recent blizzard. There was nothing on his person by which he could be identified, and but 15 cents was found upon his person. A description of the dead stranger is in brief as follows: Height, about 5 feet 5 inches; weight, about 120 pounds; prominent nose; about 28 years of age; dark whiskers and hair, and he wore plaid shirt, striped vest and no undercloth ­ ing- , Coroner Byrnes, of Hudson, ..was tele ­ graphed for and he impaneled a jury.
