should require immediate assistance, he must use the
signal appointed by the Head Constable for procuring it.
During his tour of duty he must not enter any pri-
vate or public house except in the immediate discharge
of his duty. A breach of this positive order will not
be excused. A Publican is subject to a severe fine if
he allow a Constable on duty to remain in his house.
While on duty he must not smoke ; nor enter into
conversation with any one except on matters relating
to his duty. He must be very cautious not to interfere
idly or unnecessarily ; but when circumstances require
him to act, he must do so with boldness and decision,
and at the same time with coolness and perfect com-
mand of temper.
