he was taken and put to bed and not
locked up in jail, as would have been
-done had he been making ,a racket
"The police thought to do him a good
-turn by not throwing him in the jail,
but it would have been a good thing
for him had they done this. "When
put to bed McDonald, did not stay
there as was supposed he would do
until he soberedup, but as soon as
left alone he'g'ot jip and went down
to the salooriis-.and poured some more
