Chief Hammil Issues "Easter" Order for the Force.

Chief Hammil has grown tired of waiting for the weather to turn warm and yesterday issued an order to the police to blossom forth in their new summer uniforms on May 25, regardless of temperature. If the chill breezes still prevail, so much the worse for the "finest."

Those policemen who had been slow about giving the order for their new clothes yesterday rushed to the tailor in order that they may be ready on Tuesday, which will be the force's "Easter."
