the discharge of their new duties.
Carrying out the letter as well as t
Bplrll of the art they will travel ov

whatever nature without warrant,
offer security and protection to romo
sections as well as those thickly po

pleased with the plan.
With the new law in effect, the off!
of "speciai dispensary constable"
abolished. As provided in the coudtt
of iho otllcers operating according
that law, the sheriff will have genet'
control and direction of the rui
policeman. It will not he midersto
