Franklin and Patrick counties, when
Revenue Agent R. B. Sam?, of Ashe

and as many others, swooped down
on the Illicit planta In the neighbor?
hood of Endlcott. They succeeded In
destroying thirteen plants, some of
which had been In operation only a
few hours before. Owing to the fact
that telephone alarme were sent In
ahead of the raiding party, much of
the whiskey had been removed and
several of the plant? had been dis?
mantled. Most of these Illicit distil?
leries we're destroyed within a radius
of two miles. One lone moonshiner
was captured, and he was caught in
the act. Hla name was Claude Now
lin. The raid resulted in the capture
of ISO gallon? of whiskey, 15? bushel?
of meal and malt, and many thousand?
of gallons of beer were destroyed. A
large number of Indictment? will re?
sult in the Federal court, which coa

Jordan knocked down the "big fel?
