But the prisoner was a shrewd man. and evidently well posted as to the lilile eccentricities of the Mayor's "model" force; besides, be bad a quarter of a dollar in his pocket.

The drinks were duly taken, and no reference was mad*- to tbe informality about tbe license Tbe prisoner now expressed a desire to perform an ablation In tbe little back room, to which his guardians assented, and h* disappeared through the door of communication After waiting a proper time, tbe two grey coats peeped in to see how their man was progressing, when lo! he had prog i eased out of sight and hearing They both I spra:ig to the front door and dashed along the pavement, the one up the street and the otber down, to'the unauailfled wonder of *11 th? da-oil. er? in that peaceful region, who had never before witnessed ?uch a phenomenon of police activity Giving the rh.iie upata bad job, they went off to console themselves as best thev might under the circumstances.
