Jacobs, 'a former resident of this town, died on Saturday in St. Mich ael's hospital in Toronto, after being a patient in the institution for a few days. The supposed remains were placed aboard a traip, arrived, in Kingston and were met-by a brother, Mr. W. J.

Toronto, July at St. Michael's Hospital revealed the fact that a" man named Thomas F. Jacobs, shoemaker, of 183 Parliament street, was brought to that institution on July 3rd in the police ambulance. He had had an epileptic fit in the street and was siiffering from a wound in the. head .when brought in. He died on July 10th and his body was held awaiting the undertaker. The latter was ordered to get the body from the morgue, and thinking the city morgue was meant, went there. He had been told by the relatives of the deceased that the latter had died from an ac- cident, and so, finding the body of an unknown man at the morgue who had .died from a railway acident, he took this body and sent it to King- ston. Meanwhile St. 'Michael's Hos- pital authorities wondered why the body left in their charge was not sent for, and eventually began to make enquiries, and the matter is now set straight.
