C.asollnc Is not a roininncnt part
of gasolene. Such U tlio decision of
tlio Supreme Court In tlio "gasoline,

enso of tlio Territory versus Sing
Tlio mutter was argued before the
lourt jeatcrdny ,ly Deputy Attorney
(loncral Whitney for tho Territory
and U. Ii. Clcmous for tlio defendant.
The Court decided right off tlio bat
that tho Territory hail no rase and
that Thompson's omro boy might sell
Thompson all the gnsollno lm.ploased
and Thompson's stenographer would
have no justifiable ground for prefer
ring a complaint ngalnst him.
So everybody Is happy tho Stan

Deputy Attorney Ocncral because ho
lost his case and hence ran still con
llnue to run lila automobile, nud tlio
Supreme Justices because they, too,
own automobiles at least, two ot
them do and they did not nnvo to
I ula themselves out of Iheh'cars and
onto tho street cars.
Tho Court held that (be question
had already been derided In tnc caso
of the Territory versus Fernandez.
Tho selling of turpentine was tho
matter at Ihuue In tint caso. Instead
of gasoline, but the principle holds
good. The law prohibits tho storage
ol liquid of which the component part
is gasoline, hut as gasoline (self Is

If You Knew
just when Fire, Accident, or Death
will strike you in the dark, there
would be no necessity of insurance;
certainly no chance for insurance
But you DON'T know. So the only
way is to "Be prepared for the worst,
and hope for the best."
The worst won't be so bad, if you
are insured. If you are not,' well,
you'll get a lot of sympathy! But
"that won't buy you anything."
We'll tell you about insurance.

icported on good authority that Su

error of his way, nnd that ho will
oto against the resolution to sopar
ale tlio gnrbago department from tliu
load department. Archer has ex
plained that ho was not thoroughly
comcrsant with tho situation nt Inn
iRSt meeting, nnd that he has Blnce
then secured Information which has
convinced him that the separation of
tlio two departments would not bo
lor Iho best Interests of tho County.
When Archer leaves tho quartet
which fought for the resolution ni

clique, namely: Harvey, Fern nnd
