been of a character that has brought
him in more or less direct contact
with the majority o' ' Um-k l.-land's

the I'iist. In Mr. Darby's absences
from the city Mr. Drown has acted as
principal, and throughout the Iwoni.d
one-half years that Mr. Itrown has
been here he has been a nios'l efficient
assistant and advi.-cr of Mr. Darby.
Thus Hie new duties will not in any
