NEW BITTERS POPULAR
Not Patent Medicine Ad bat What
Happened In M aecstlne.
There has been a slight relief of
the drouthy conditions lately at Mus
catine. From time to time the police
encountered drunks and with their
customary vigilance they ran them In.
In nearly all cases the boozy parties
were found to be taking medicine at
least empty or partly filled bottles lab
eled . "Centennial Tonic Bitters' were
found Qn their pockets. Finally some
shrewd guardian of the law fancied
there might be a connection between
the jags and the bitters, and the latter
was analysed. It was found to be 80
per cent aloohoL So Theodore Keutcn
man. a dmgglst who sold the bitters,
was arrested and will be held to an
swer to the charge of selling liquor.
