While tho Judges woie deliberating

the pioblem by confronting 'he judges
by asking that the piizo be awaidcd
to her ilval because her own pie, she

Tried His "Darndest" to Violate' Fed
eral Laws But Failed.
Fort Smith, Ark. The man who
tried his darndest ft) violate the laws
of the United States Government and
miserably failed has been found.
He is Ben Jones, a native of the
Scott county mountains, and was dis
missed by J. H. Dur.i'razier United
Slates commissioner, after he spent a
night in jail awaiting an investigation
of his alleged moonshine operations
in Scott county.
Jones told the government author
ities a story that rolled them into ono
long continual laughter. According to
his tale he had expciienced a streak
of bad luck when he decided to turn
moonshiner. He had a mortgage on
his mountain home, and the man who
held the mortgage closed In on him
when he could not liquidate the in
debtedness, Jones said. Then his son
died and he was completely broken
up." He tiled to mako a living by
honest means, he said, and failed. At
last ho turned moonshiner, or start
ed to "make a little money."
The mountaineer said he bought a
twenty gallon oil .can, cut off the top
and inserted a hardwood plug on the
bottom. This served as his still. For
a worm lie secured a piece of cast iron
"pipo fiom a saw mill nnd bent It
around a tico to make a coil. Jones
further stated he traded a Bhot gunt
worth ?8 for thrco bushels of corn
meal. He made a mash and attempt
ed to distill It. -
" 'Onestly gents, that licker would
kill a polo cat," Jones said, in des
cilbing the brand ho manufactuicd.
"Did you sell any?" inquired J. V.
Bourland, district attorney.
"Sell any? Lawd, man, you could-'
n't give it away. I dumped tile whole
licker nnd quit." J
Jones said the still was now repos
ing in the kitchen of a neighboring
mountaineer who found It served a
good purposo as a soap box. Vhat
became of his worm ho did not know.
Federal authorities state that Jones
violated no law, nlthougli ho tried
mighty haid. Jones has hepn want
ed slnco last February. Ho ovaded
arrest by removing to Boonevllle. Re
cently ho returned from Boonevllle to
Scott county where ho -was arrested

With Colls Wrapped Around
-Rattler Sank Its Fangs

SARASOTA, Fla. Mary Murray,
18 years old girl preacher of a mysto
llous cult which is strong near hero,
is dead here, a victim to her. belief in
her own sactlflcatton, a sanctlflcatlon
which sho believed mado her immuno

and eloquent, had chosen ns her sub
ject "Sanctiflcatlon." She proposed,
sho told her congregation, to demon

who had attained the state of holiness
and purity was Immune from evil.
Her own person would furnish tho ob

sho said; no sin contaminate, no ovll
A great box was brought forward to
tho edge of tho pulpit. From It tho girl
produced a monster rattlesnake and
calmly proceeded to wrap Its deadly
folds thrice around her body and
shapely neck. Tho congregation shiv
The huge snake seemed charmed,
nor made an effort to strike the slip
of a young woman7 who handled him
as she might the most innocent pet.
A little later Bob Mlxon, n Holy Rol

Murray, came before the awed throng,
and went thru somowbat the same per

more gingerly, -and only lightly laid It
about his shoulders, where his clothing

Elated by her former success, the
girl caught up the reptile and wound
It about her throat.
"He will not strike mo!" sho cried.
"Even the Arch-Evil does not assail
ono whose heart is pure! u

should tho snake strike me, il
would In no wise harm mo!"
But the huge rattler drew back L
darted at the girl's left arm. The con
gregation gazed, benumbed with hor
ror. Mary Murray quietly put the serpent
back in tf-e box.
"The bite will do me no harm," she
said. "Do not think of it again. The
morning services are now over, and
you may disperse for your dinner."
Refusing all medical attention, tho
girl went about as If nothing had" hap
pened. In an hour she had to acknowl
edge great pain, which deepened into
At 5 o'clock sho died In horrible con
vulsions, and next day they hurried
her in the little home cemetery at El

Tho snake had been captured In the
nearby woods only a week before, by
boys, while out hunting.
Somo young men would get along
better it they had less point to their
shoes and a little more in their con

'fcAW CONCERNING. COIN8
Using Them na Advertisements How
They May Be Mutilated.
Thousands of dollars aro lost yoarly,
by big firms through Ignoranco or
carolessnoss in observing tho Federal
laws governing nbusp of coins.
Just lately in Chicago a piano com
pnny camo to grlof in this way. Had
they nBked tho propor authorities
(tho Information would havo boon
furnished grntis) or had they looked
up U16 law thoy would havo found
in section 105, public net No, 350,
"Whoever frndulontly, by any art,
way or moans shall deface, mutilate,
Impair, diminish, falsify or llgbtcn
tho gold or silvor coins
which havo been or which may here
after bo coined in Iho Mint of the
United States shall bo flnod
not more than ?2,000 nnd imprison
ment of not more than five "years."
Much troublo and expense would
havo been saved tho firm and the gov
ernment had tho law only been read.
It nil happened In this way: Somo
clever advertiser conceived tho Idea
of an "ad" of metal just tho size of a
.dime, with the. wording and printing
placed in such n way that at flrbt
glanco It would appear as a dime.
Tho idea was cleverly executed, A
fair imitation of the head of Liberty
was on ono side and the advertise-'
mont on tho other. Tho number was
placed whero the dato on a dlmo is
and tho first glanco certainly im
pressed one a3 the real coin. The
other side had a sheaf of wheat and
in the centre tho words "On Time."
Tho firm had no desire to defraud
tho public. But unscrupulous peoplo
who had access to them did. Several
waiters at a summer park lost money
by accepting tho advertisement for
real money, chewing gum machines
were filled with them nnd at last tho
secret servico learned how matters

Jewellers uro guilty cvsry day of
committing a criminal offence. Every
day somo ono of them lays himsolt
liable to the law. According to the
ordlnanco quoted above, to mutilate

tho, law. Jewellers fllo one side of a

"To "change the complexion" of a

to dip silver In gold. Only a few days
ago a "lot" of shirt sets were confis

sets were made of Panama half

a farmer advertlsod his automobllt
for sale for ?800 worth of mules.

way, but the average man seldom
