TRAMPS AND THEIR WARDROBES. At a London inquest the curious custom of the tramp class of wearing all the available cloth- ing they can lay their hands on was com- mented on when it was stated that a woman who was taken from the Thames was wearing four petticoats. "It is the usual thing," said a police inspector, "for people of the tramp class to wear all the clothes they can find in cold weather. We get men from the Embankment wearing three over- coats, three pairs of trousers, or women wear- ing three or four skirts. If you give them more clothing they will put it all on." The Coroner: I have been in Portugal. There peasant women, far from rich, were wearing as many as twenty petticoats, and they like it.
