The said Board of Tru tlixoughout ti John Hocking, tho contractf.r for tlio moval of aslic-3 .and garbage, was derelict in ids duty. Un c.xamination it was found tl Hocking was to blame in very few these cases, cud that it householders would comply wteh the regulations in tlie matter, there would be little cause of coiiipiaint. This is the more creditable to nocking, since lie is an absolute loser by the terms of liis contract. An exam­ ple in point is tli.at of a woman I'bsiding in the iieart of the viUage. Mr. Hocking’s drivers stopped in front of the house reg­ ularly in their rounds. For four weeks they did so witliont a result of anytliing to remove. Then they m grew lax, and for auotlier few passed the in mso by. About this time the woman sought Mr. Hooking, and made complaint of tlie'ir neglect. Mr. Hocking mimediatcly sent Ins driveis tliither. Tliey found a number of barrels, and re­ moved all except one, on tlietop of which lav throe dead puppies. It being outside of the terms of tho contract to removi carcasses, they felt justified in leaving tliem, unless they should be paid for till' extra .icrvice. This amount, the SI Andrew I.
