time it was contemplated to have
Ihe building abandoned and sold
lo the city for a house for the
sexton of the cemetery, but as
there are quite a number of fam
ilies living in that locality it was
decided lo lix it up. A new
foundation was placed under the

and now the building is in good
shape. The carpenter work on
I In- building was done by J .K.

in a state of intoxication on last

the police instituted a search, but
without success until yesterday,

nealh the shade of a large r tree
on Isoulh ririh street. It was
thought by the parlies finding him
lhat he was dead, but upon in
vestigation he vas found very
much alive and was foree"d to ap
pear in the court to face his
charge. The judge, after taking
in the testimony, decided that a

5-, would about lit bis rase, and
it was "hung" orv him by the
court and he was allowed his
