KE TORE HIS SHIRT, And Then Tried to Hang: Himself With the Strips. A JAG AT THE STATION Tries to Commit Suicids in Odd and Divers Ways, AND, FAILING TO DO IT, Ke Falls Asleep Without Any Apparel or Bed Clothes. A police station is not the best place in the world to really enjoy a good drunk. A gentleman who possossrd one of those Monumental jags of consid .erable standing was draggid into the central station last night, lie refused to be comforted. 11? would not stand up while being searched, and declined to use his feet while being taken up stairs, lie was duly carried up and placed in a cell. The door was no sooner closed upon him. than ha ripped off a!i his clothes, and begun to tear his shirt into strips. "1 am Koiujj to hang myself," he cried. The jailer entered the cell and took every vestige of his clothing away from him. including his shoes. The prisoner, who was a husky-look ing fellow about thirty-five years old, then seized the bed clothing and pro ceeded to tear it into shreds, when the jailer entered his cell again and took all the bedding away from him. This made him frantic With one bound he jumped to the roof of his cate, for all the work! like Hi* Darwinian Aiu-estors. and hooked his wrist around an iron liar. There he swung and vainly en deavored to insert his head through a three-inch opening. In despair he let co and betran to struggle with the iron cot in his cell. lie tugged at the chain which shuts the cot up against the wall of the cell in the hope that it would fall and break his neck. After several trials the chain broke and the cot tell to the t> round, and the crazy unfortunate dropped to the irrouud at the same tiui**, tun! laid his head on bis arm as though ex hausted. Soon after he got up and veiled for a drink. He raved up and down the cell, and cried out in ago nized, hysterical tones: "Oh, Jack ! Oh, Jack ! Oh, Jack !" He simply wanted a drink. What he needed was a sleeping potion, but there was no pnysician there to accommodate him. It was one of those cases that exem plified the need of a regular attending physician at the central station. A padded cell should also be provided for such cases. These improvements can be made a 9 soon as that one-horse, provincial,coun trified Bell charter is repealed. \\ hy Nut Let the piano be your Christmas pres ent?

Secretary Hart, of the state relief commission, said yesterday: "I notice that it has been stated by some of the papers that the stale commission has upi>"d the tiding ot supplies to the sufferers ill th« burned districts until it is known whether or not the $15,000, borrowed for the purpose of buyinif these supplies, will be refunded by the legislature. Tnis is a mistake, Ouo order for supplies was countermanded /or a day, bat the supplies have gone forward and the commission expects to do whatever is necessary to prevent suffering In the burued district until suclt time as the legislature can investi gate the work done for the commission and can decide what further action is necessary. Ttie commission will pre sent to the legislature, through the governor, a full report of their opera tions, and they are entirely willing to let the work speak for itself. Some dis satisfaction has been expressed at dif ferent times, but it has been either from people who were misinformed as to the facts, or from people who were willing to maliciously misrepresent the facts." Secretary Hart stated that Agent Holt, of Hinckley, and Agent Miller, at Sandstone, had instructions to visit the tire sufferers in their own homes and to furnish necessary supplies to those who were unable to provide for themselves, He estimates 100 families will need more or less asaistauce through the wiu ter.

The eagle quit the mountain peak, to mix with meaner fowl, Aud, like a comrade, act the part of grooms man to the Owl; The friendly stork had hastened there, with long and stately stride; It was its happy privilege to give away the bride. And when arrangements were complete, a circle wide they aiade. And iv the center siooa the pair, in finest dress arrayed. Then out in front advanced the crow, and bowed his shining head. And with i.hree loud approving cawfcdeclared the couple wed. " Then kind congratulations poured from friends on every side. As, thronging round' the hsippy pair, they kissed tho blushing bride. And soon the supper was prepared, for each had brought a share. The crow ai.d jay bad carried corn; the eagle brought a hare; The curlew brought a string of fish, just taken from the lake; The crane, a brace of speckled frogs; the buzzard brought a snaKe; The owl and active tiawk procured a dozen mice at least; The snipe and rail brought water flies, to help along the feast. And birds that always went to roost before the shades of night.
