HOBOS ROAM CANAL DISTRICT STREETS
CLAIM THEY ARE BEING PREYED UPON
DUNSANY INSTITUTE TO BLAME?
NEW BABBAGE, NB — Sources in the Canal District have been reporting a startlingly higher than usual number of hobos and transients cluttering up the neighborhood in the south part of the city.
A city worker who wished to remain nameless has suggested that these same transients generally maintain a low profile during daylight hours, instead preferring to remain hidden beneath the city streets in hidden tunnels and sewer systems. He refrained from speculating as to what might have led these usually solitary creatures to begin roaming the once safe streets during the day.
One of the transients, however, who would only identify himself to the Free Press as "Stubby" has claimed, 'There be things moved into the area now, yes. They whisper, and if you ain't tirely [sic] careful, they'll eat you. Sure enough.' When asked who he thought was preying on the transients, he replied that it was "Dunsany Folk".
The Dunsany Institute was a medical establishment in the borough of Clockhaven, which closed its doors many years ago.
