DEMON RUM'S QUICKEST. In
London hereafter a man is to be per
mitted but five and one-half hours on
week days and five hours on Sunday
in which to acquire a jag. Should the
London mixtures be found inade
quate he might try the popular Mex
ican beverage, tequilla highball.
In Juarez, where the drink was first
concocted, it is said that when a bar
tender serves a tequilla highball he
remarks to his customers: "Drink it
and hurry on out; we don't want any
trouble inside," a tribute to the rapid
fire action of tequilla, which stamps

JUST ONE LARGE FIZZLE. We
were being ground up, absorbed, as
similated by the Standard Oil octo
pus. But .a decade or more of the
finest sort of statecraft had given us
law to relieve us. The U. S. supreme
court unloosened the tentacles of the
octopus, unscrambled the trust as
some put it, rendered decisions in
tended to prevent enormous profits
being extorted out of us. Where are
the octopus and we today? The oc
topus is here as a fragmentary oc
topus and we're in the octopus Same
old situation, only more so.
Stock in the New York tentacle of
the. octopus is selling at 204, in the
New Jersey at 487, the Indiana at
457, the California at 326 and in the
Prairie Oil & Gas at 430.
Ten advances in prices of oils and I
gasoline have been made in the mid-J
die west since August and an ocean i
of yeast seems to have been stirred
into the market everywhere. The oc-t
topus is just the same old success-
fully ravenous beast and we're just
the same old helpless "meat," in spited
of all the lawmaking, yelling of
bloody murder, prosecuting and tal-
ent of the U S. supreme court.
Thus far "regulating" monopoly?
has proved a miserable, open-faced
farce and fizzle. If a monopoly can't
be controlled it should be killed.
