brought Administrator Bill Hoover
22, to town after breaking up his
alleged ,100-gallon still, according
to Deputies Johnson and Lowerey.
Bill had pitched his tent about
seven miles northwest of Dell, in the
western part of the county, in the
midst of a dense forest, and had
gone into the distilled grain admin

Anyway, the ollicers say that
when they came upon BUI late in
the afternoon, he was sitting in his
tent door while the mellowing au
tumn sun streamed down upon a
scene of rustic enterprise and in
dustry seldom rivalled in the pre
Volstead days. It seems that Bill
was a loquacious chap, too, for be
lieving the inquisitive strangers to
be prospective purchasers, he volun
teered to show them over his prem
ises, the officers said, pointing out
the superior qualities of his "Hcker"
as made on the up-to-date copper
apparatus of 300-gallon capacity.
They say that Bill was power
fully proud of his outfit and pointed
out to the visitors that he had
done "right well" as an administra
tor. Alter satisfying themselves as
to the complete success of Bill's
"adnilnibtration," the heartless min
ions of the law proceeded to pull a
"4th of March" stunt and bring the
administration to a close, About
