|Lespinasse - Baltimore, Md., Feb. 24.1885 --P. B. Lespinasse, the Rockland County, N.Y. farmer, who having lost a wager on the recent Presidential election, is paying it by tramping from his home to Washington, carrying a live pig under one arm and a rooster under the other, arrived here yesterday afternoon. The streets through which he passed were crowded with interested spectators, and the novel scene was the cause of much merriment. If Mr. Lespinasse fails to reach Washington by March 4 and from the tail-end of the inaugural procession with his pig rooster, he forfeits $1,000. (thanks J.W.)|
