It appeared that _the undertaker undertaker buried a woi.'.iu \\no died ' o u t on the mountains '· o::d j without a regular permit irom the Io- i cal health officer. The attending [physician ga\e a certificate 01 death I v. hich the undertaker f.uled to file 1 with the health officer, and procure ' burial permit. The unJertaker Hied the certificate in his office and con- · sidered tnat sufficient warrant for ' burying the body. It came out in evidence that there was no intent evade the law. merely a misunderstanding misunderstanding of its provisions. While the law provides a penalty for failure to procure a ceitiflcate ot death and record the sa.ne. there is no penalty provided in the section covering p'ermits for burial. Squire Murphy held the case sub curia.
