THE BIG STORE,
About 1 o'clock Saturday morning
State Constables L?ngsten, Foster and
Floyd halted a man in a buggy near
Abbey Greek Ohurcll cemetery, about
fifteen miles below the city, and cap
tured thirty-two gallons of corn
whiskey. The man was also captured.
The constables ha> G been warned for
some time that person.: have been car
rying whiskey along this route con
tinually and they Pave been laying
low am watching for several day.; past,
and at last their vigilance was re
warded by t his haul.
The novelty of the affair is the fact
that the party having in bis possession
the whiskey is a former State consta
ble, who used to frequently visit this
city to suppress illicit traffic of the
bug juice, but this was a long time ago
when the constabulary was first or
ganized. The man's name is Pink II.
Martin, and he I? a well known citizen
of Laurenscounty. The buggy in which
the whiskey was slowed and ! be horse
he was driving are said to belong to a
citizen of Laurens, but this may be
The constables bad watched the road
olosely for several days and bad about
given up all hope of getting any booze,
when on yesterday morning directly
after midnight, as they were reclining
on the ground near the church, one ot
the number detected a noise of some
one coining with a vehicle. They in
stantly prepared to hail the comer,
lie halted at their demand and was at
once surrounded. Resistance was use
less, and it was well for the constables
that Martin was unaccompanied, for
he is dead game and was never known
to show the while feather. His record
as a police officer will corroborate this.
One of the constables who assisted in
the capture informed a Herald man
that of all the men they have dealt
with, Martin was the bravest and
There being no alternative, Martin
quietly gave up and was taken in
charge by these men, who also con
fiscated the whiskey, The whiskey
was in large tin cans and hair been
placed in the buggy with much skill
Mr. Martin was brought before Mag
istrate Kirby yesterday and gave bond.
