Mystery Tramp — Crowd of 650 Attends Outing.

Mystery Tramp.

Crowd of 650 Attends Outing.

With each consecutive mystery tramp this season, new records, numerically, have been established, and yesterday's tramp—the fifth this year—was no exception (states the Christ-church “Star”). Six hundred and fifty people from the city and towns along the route travelled by the train, breaking the record of 560 by 90. An attractive route had been mapped out over the downs country in the Mount Grey district and the walk was not in any way strenuous.

The tramp was the twenty-first since their inauguration by the Railway Department, and it was gratifying to the officials that the outings attained their majority under such pleasant circumstances. Six properties were traversed and trampers were quick to show their appreciation of the property owners' kindness in granting them permission to cross their land.
