A poor, dilapidated wretch who was put to work on the street with a ball and chain attached to his leg, attempted to run away from the Marshal last Monday. He was captured, however, before he got very far and another ball was chained to his other leg. Giving up the idea of running as hopeless, he took revenge upon the municipal government by throwing mud at the city building, until returned to the lock-up.
