The Gazette's Tola department wou'dn't be properly rounded out with out some reference to the peculiar conduct of a policeman there on Sun day. \Vhen the body of the murder ed Stewart was found, the coroner requested a policeman to perform certain chore; whereupon the officer S3t upon him. and stamped him flat asd dragged him to the police station where the stricken coroner had to give bond to get loose. The fact that the coroner is a cripple, and the policeman a Goliath, is explanatory of the indignation that prevails in the gay Old town where there is ajways something doing. It is pleasing to learn that Crevis ton, who kil'ed Stewart, at last feels some p.ings of remorse, showing that there is a trace of human nature in the man. He is sorry that he used a knife on his victim, being convinced that the blows on the head were fatal A young man who was on his way lo jail for trifling with the affections of « sixteen year old girl, had a sud den inspiration; he married her. and the proS(M :ution stopped.
