RESULTS OF RECENT HAIDS.
Ocoaco Officers Catch Plant in Opera
tion in Bickens County.
On Wednesday morning, July 12,
Officers Sullivan, Littleton and Depu
ty Collector Baskin raided In thc
northwestern section of tho county,
getting wind of something doing in
tho This ta toe section, which carried
them over into Dickens county. Not
far over the river, In tho Eastatoo
section, tho ofllcors ran directly on
a large plant in full operation. There
were three men in tho still at tho
time of tho raid, hut the mon knew
their ground helter than the o?llce^?
knew lt, and wlion some crackling
twigs gave the operators of the still
warning that they were, not the only
persons in that immediate vicinity,
they look to their heels, and it was
l i"t a few seconds until the operators
of tlic plant were no moro In that
aforesaid immediato vicinity. Olllcer
Sullivan succeeded in gelling close
enough to one man not only to recog
nize him, hut to make' a grab for
him in thc chase, retaining a small
portion of a shirt that clung to his
fingers. Tho temporary interruption
to his running caused hy the effort
made to got his mau slackened his
pace, and his .man made his escape,
as did the other two. They were all
three Oconeo mon, though their still
was located a short distance over on
tho IMckons side.
The plant was demolished. There
was a 75-gallon copper still and the
other paraphernalia that goes with
such an outfit, all in full operation.
Twenty gallons of liquor and about
1,500 gallons of beer were destroyed,
along with twelve large fermenters.
The officers haye for some limo
had (heir eyes on the section of our
county above JocnsseC, from which
quarter indications have been noted,
and some complaints made, of dis
orderliness thai indicated that there
was a source close by from which
abundant liquor was obtainable, lt
was found that the still was located :
only a comparatively short distance
out of Oca nee, on the Pickons side. |

CITY LIFE BREEDING SWOBS?
Lover of the Wood? and Hills Almost

Last summer I spent several weeks
lu the woods and lived as nearly a
natural, Ufo us one well could. That
ls, everybody wore the bind ol' clothes
he wished to, and did about as he
pleased, without regard to fashion or
arbitrary social oust om. I noticed
that whenever anybody hired n guide
to perform work that' ho could Just
as easily have, done himself-such
us rowing up the luke to go tish

wns regarded as tin admission of in
ability or weakness. The mun most
admired in our party was the one most
capable of being Sufficient unto him
self-able to go forth and catch his
own tish, cook his own food, and con
struct his own rude shelter. After a
month or two I grew accustomed to
the woods Idea that looking nfter
one's own wants ls logical and com
mendable, and nearly forgot about tho
modem city viewpoint. But the llrst
garage man t dealt with on my return
to civilization almost snubbed me
when he noticed that, though I had
a large auto, I was my own chauffeur
and filled my own? grease cups. Then
I paused and thought how widespread
ls the difference In the attitude to
ward servants or helpers in the woods
mid the city. Wherever our modern
coclnl life ls highly enough developed
lt ls more or less disgraceful to do
anything useful that one can possibly
hire done. A woman gains more so
cial prestige from keeping three hired
girls than from being the most expert
cook and most systematic housekeeper
in the neighborhood. Not to have serv
ants is to he Inferior.-Fred C. Kelly,
