enterprise, the manufacture of a non
alcoholic wine from the puice of the
scuppernong ' grape. It ..will interest
readers of this newspaper to know that
the new drink is actually scuppernong
wine witlj the alcohol , taken out.
; "Paul Garrett comes from a family
of scuppernong wine makers. The
family have been, in the 'business . since
1835. In 1867 Mr. Garrett, the father of
Paul ; Garrett, ' bought a , vineyard in
Littleton, : North Carolina, and began
the manufacture of scuppernong wine.
Mr. Paul Garrett succeeded to. the bus-
iness and greatly increased ,it. By and
by North Carolina adopted : prohibition
and Mr. Garrett moyed his business to
Virginia, a state that -seemed immune
to prohibition. "With headquarters at
Norfolk he "built up an immense busi
ness, a three million dollar business in
fact. But Virginia was not prohibition
proof; not by a great deal, for just. a
few years ago that state adopted a
drastic anti-booze law and Mr. Garrett
ha tr. lonk .fnr a new field. He went
I to New York, and, it did seem a lovii;
"shot that the Empire state would fall
for the prohibition stuff, but national
prohibition came' along and Garrett
was up against it ,for fair. There was
no more wet states to which he cou.d
go and he had several million galloon
or scuppernong wine in stock that
must be disposed of before July 1, 1319,
when war prohibition goes into effect,
to be followed on January 18, 1920 by
the national constitutional prohibition.
Garrett called in his salesmen and
proposed to double their commission
if they would go out and hustle off as
much of the wine as they could get rid
of. They raised the price, as other
liquor had gone up, and sold a lot of
it. Still,, a million gallons were left
and Garrett began experimenting . to
make scuppernong non-alcoholic
wine. Experiment after experiment
failed. He spent a mint of money but
could find nothing that was fit to drink.
He went to California and tried to
make a non-alcoholic wine from the
grapes he found, but there was nothing
doing. The California grape without
the alcohol, which is its chief ingre
dient, was positively tasteless. By
combining the North Carolina scupper
nong with the native grape of Californ
ia he succeeded in making a very good
wine out of which he could extract the
alcohol and have a tasty non-alcoholic
beverage left He tried again with the
scuppernong alone, his first love, , and
failed. . One day he stumbled on a pro
cess that gave him what he was after.
He put $50,000 into an experimental
plant, with the idea that if he had done
it once he could do it a thousand times.
and proved that he was right.
"But the curious thing about it is
that he cannot make a scuppernong
grape juice that is non-alcoholic and
satisfactory at once. He must make
the scuppernong wine first and then
take out the alcohol, leaving the non
intoxicating wine that he is putting on
the market and which he believes is to
be an aid to prohibition by giving the
people a drink that is as good as the
old scuppernong wine but is postively
harmless, having less than one half
of one per cent of alcohol. He has had
a bill put through Congress allowing
him to make the wine out of which
the alcohol is to be taken under a
bond of $200,000. In North Carolina and
California and perhaps in New York
he has the right to manufacture the
wine, not to be sold until the alcohol
has been extracted.
"Mr. Garrett says the women and the
church people and the prohibitionists
have all been against him but now they
are with him, for anybody who can
produce something as good to drink as
scuppernong wine, without the alcohol
is helping to fill the Vaching void" that
prohibition is soon to cause; nay, is
already causing in most of the states.
"It is Mr. Garrett's intention to man
ufacture six million gallons of this
non intoxicating "wine each year in his

Free Vaccine to Be Given in Pasquo
tank County Beginning
. June 12
'The vaccination campaign against
typhoid which the State Board of
Health plans to wage this summer,
will open in Pasquotank, county June
12. The serum is given in three treat
ments, one week apart ; it causes no
painful sores, and is. practically- sure
protection against the deadly typhoid
germ. ,It is, absolutely free, no charge
being' made either for the vaccine or
for administering It."" '
Thirty North Carolina counties are
to have free typhoid inoculation this
summer, and Pasquotank is in the first
group of ten counties of Eastern North
Carolina, " in which the anti-typhoid
campaign will begin. The value of the
treatment is shown in the fact that
since the United States army adopted
the vaccine, -cases of typhoid have
been reduced among the soldiers by
3,500 per cent., The State Board of
Health insists that everybody should
take this practically sure and painless
free protection before it is too late.
Here are the dates and places where
the vaccine will be given in this

Attorney C. R. Pugh, . of Elizabeth
City, who was on the fated steamer
Virginia of the Old Bay Line which
burned in Chesapeake Bay last Friday
night, got home with a whole skin,
but minus $700 in good TJ. S. currency.
M. Pugh had been to Baltimore on
a business deal in which he had re
ceived the $700 in bills. He put the
bills in a bill foM which he carried
in his inside breast pocket. When he
woke up in the middle of the night
to find his stateroom . full of smoke
and the boat on fire, he hurried into
his coat and trousers and began to
throw . things into his grip. While
leaning over his grip the bill fold fell
from his, pocket. Mr. Pugh recovered
the bill book . and threw it Into his
grip, thinking it would be safer in his
grip than in his , pocket. And then,
in the excitement of being rescued
from the burning ship, he forgot all
about his grip and left it on the deck
of the steamer. The steamer burned
to the water's edge. Several lives are
thought to have been tost Mr. Pugh
says no fire alarm was sounded and
he thinks it a miracle that a scoreor
more' did not perish, so quickly did the
flames spread and engulf the steamer.
