He brought his train to a stand still and Conductor St. Clair took the body into the caboose and carried it to the Bridgeport station. ; The man must have been struck by some train which passed on the west bound track only a short time before. The body was terribly mangled. One leg was amputated between the knee and the ankle, the skull was crushed and the body covered with cuts and .bruises. Death was instantaneous. The man was dressed in a suit of black diagonal clothing and wore good shoes. He was about 35 years old, wore a dark moustache and weighed 175 pounds. \ At Cullinan's morgue, where the body was taken after its arrival in Bridgeport, Medical Examiner Downs made an examination and found in the dead man's pockets a recommendation signed by J. M. Carter & Co., furniture dealers, 511 Middlesex street, Lowell, Mass. It certified that George A. Robasge had been in the employ of the firm for a long time and recommended him highly to any who might be in need of his services. The letter was dated Sept. 8. A pawn ticket was also found, which showed that the man had pawned a ring at 2247 Third avenue, New York, last Saturday and had received $2.50 for it. A For aster's pin was found on the lapel of the dead man's vest. The only identifying mark on the body was a combination of across and a heart which had been tattoed in blue on his left forearm. There is little doubt that the body is that of George A. Robasge and that he was a brakeman, on the Consolidated road, and fell from a train which had passed the spot where he was found, earlier in the evening. The terrible mangling the body received leads the railroad men to believe that he fell betweeif the cars of a freight.

A dramatic feast is in store for theatre- goers this week. Manager Hoyt has secured that highly successful romantic war play, "Northern Lights," for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. This is the same organization that enjoyed a run of two month%at the American Theatre last season, and has just .ended its second successful engagement in the metropolis. There are more than forty people employed in the presentation, and the stage of Hoyt's Theatre will be fully occupied with the magnificent scenery, every stitch qf which is carried by the company. The Sunshine of Paradise Alley. An attraction that will no doubt have an audience limited to the capacity of the house is Denman Thompson and George W. Ryer's'latest great success, "The Sunshine of Paradise Alley," which will be seen at Hoyt's Theatre on Friday evening. Wherever presented the past season it has drawn immense crowds, and is described as novel, because it does not follow the beaten track; as a delight, because it is a page of human nature. It exalts virtue and courage, teaches good manners, and its characters such as .are to be found in any large city. •'•*••••• • Joe Ott.

Mr. Ott's work is of the finest kind, and with his pscul^ar personalities he never fails to drive dull care away.

Chief If Yollmer Captures a & Horse Thief who is Want-i ed in Newark. The Fellow Proved Himself to be an Adept ^ j Disciple of Ananias. Saturday afternoon Chief Vollmer learned that there was ' a stranger in his precinct who was trying to dispose of a horse and top buggy at a figure that led to the belief that it was stolen property. ^ It was not long before the Chief had the man in charge. The fellow pleaded that he was ill and out of sympathy he was not placed in the cages at the station-house but was kept under surveillance, after being allowed to go to a cheap boarding house pending further investigation. He first offered to sell the turnout, which was perhaps worth $75, for $25.' His customer would not pay that price but offered him $10 for the same, which offer the fellow accepted with a " Well give me your $10 and take the team." The party then advised the Chief of the low figure at which the turnout had been offered to him, with the result that the man was held as above stated. The fellow told the chief that he belonged in Meriden and gave his name as Erpest D. Miller and said that he bought the turnout of Charles Fairbanks of that city, and that he was engaged in the sale of harness dressing. To several other questions asked him he gave evidence that he was lying to the South Norwalk vidocq, who said that he would telephone to the parties mentioned. "That's all right" said the-man, "but it would be better to telephone to Deputy sheriff FitzRoy of Greenwich. He had me under arrest for two days on the same charge and knows all about me." The chief, however, telephoned to Capfeain Ford in Meriden and later received a reply that neither of the men mentioned were known there. He then communicated with FitzRoy who said that he had last week ar rested the man but being unable to find that the prisoner was not telling the truth as to the ownership of the team had let him go. Here too he also ciaimed to bs ill, but had stated that he had secured the horss in Brooklyn. At Greenwich he gave his name as Rogers. He claimed that he had been on the road for over two years and had his goods shipped to him by freight, and gave different addresses as to where the goods he pretended to sell were to be-shipped but was unable to show any receipts.. In fact all of his statements have since proven to have been a series of falsehoods. > v " On Saturday last special officer Rior-dan who had occasion to visit Newark, N. J.,was furnished with a full description of the man and turnout and told by the chief to make such inquiries as he might be able, as to the identity of the same. And it proved to be a wise move on the part of the chief. Officer Riordan foucul that the team was owned by a man named Cuff who keeps $ livery stable there, and who had let it to the man described and who gave his name as John Doll, and said that he wanted to drive to the Waverly fair. Confronted with this evidence this morning the fellow weakened and admitted that he had stolen the same, besides giving other damaging testimony against himself. Officer Riordan also learned that the man was suspected of having done time in States prison. The chief of police of Newark is expected here to take charge of the prisoner to-day. • FRATERNAL. NEWS.

Charles Gehebe's Dog Scents a Stranger. Warns His Master and a Woman is Rescued. Late Saturday, Charles Gehebe who lives in the vicinity of what is known as "The, Rocks" was awakened from his sleep by the barking of one of his watch-dogs. As the animal kept up an incessant growling and barking his owner bethought himself that perhaps thieves were paying a visit to the garden and despoiling the same of its wealth of cabbages, etc. and partially dressing himself proceeded to investigate. After some scarch he discovered a woman on a cleft of rocks and after some parleying assisted her from her rather perilousjsituation. The woman was apparently intoxicated, but this made but little difference with Gehebe who has served as policeman and keeper of the Smith street station-house, and he proceeded to question her. He learned from her statement, she at the first disavowing the fact that she was intoxicated, that she had come from New York to enter the employ of a family at Silver Mine as a domestic, and being a. stranger had wandered to the place where she was found. After listening to her story Gehebe escorted the woman to Main street where he left her to await the arrival of a car for Winnipauk. She had a $2 bill clutched in her hand which she offered as a reward to Gehebe, who refused it, and bade her good-night and went home. EAST NORWALK.

HIS BODY MANGLED.
GeorgejE. Robasge Struck by
Recommendation from a Lowell Firm Found
' in His Pocket s*\'
* T he engineer of the fast freight which
is due at Bridgeport at 5:45, yesterday
morning discovered the body of a man
on the track a short distance west of
the signal tower at the Burr Road crossing.
He brought his train to a stand
still and Conductor St. Clair took the
body into the caboose and carried it to
the Bridgeport station.
; The man must have been struck by
some train which passed on the west
bound track only a short time before.
The body was terribly mangled. One
leg was amputated between the knee
and the ankle, the skull was crushed
and the body covered with cuts and
.bruises. Death was instantaneous.
The man was dressed in a suit of
black diagonal clothing and wore good
shoes. He was about 35 years old, wore
a dark moustache and weighed 175
At Cullinan's morgue, where the
body was taken after its arrival in
Bridgeport, Medical Examiner Downs
made an examination and found in the
dead man's pockets a recommendation
signed by J. M. Carter & Co., furniture
dealers, 511 Middlesex street, Lowell,
Mass. It certified that George A.
Robasge had been in the employ of the
firm for a long time and recommended
him highly to any who might be in
need of his services. The letter was
dated Sept. 8. A pawn ticket was also
found, which showed that the man had
pawned a ring at 2247 Third avenue,
New York, last Saturday and had received
$2.50 for it. A For aster's pin
was found on the lapel of the dead
man's vest. The only identifying
mark on the body was a combination
of across and a heart which had been
tattoed in blue on his left forearm.
There is little doubt that the body is
that of George A. Robasge and that he
was a brakeman, on the Consolidated
road, and fell from a train which had
passed the spot where he was found,
earlier in the evening.
The terrible mangling the body received
leads the railroad men to believe
that he fell betweeif the cars of
a freight. His clothing and shoes were
cut into a thousand pieces and Ms face
will hardly be recognizable by any who
may have known him in life.
