The police physician was called to examine an unconscious prisoner, who had been arrested and brought to the station-house for drunkenness. After a short examination, the physician addressed the policeman who had made the arrest.
“This fellow is not suffering from the effects of alcohol. He has been drugged.”
The policeman was greatly disturbed, and spoke falteringly:
“I’m thinkin’, ye’re right, sor. I drugged him all the way to the station.”
