Pints of Whisky.
Five men and 102 pints of liquor
foil ituo the hands of Prohibition
Agent 11. K. Sweet yesterday, three
negroes (icing taken from a Balti
more boat at West Point, while two
men driving a whisky-laden roadster
were aptured forty-live miles north
<>t Uiciitnond.
Swe. t adopted Koch's tactics by car
rying the figlu into the enemy's coun
try in rapturing the roadsrter. in which
seventy-two jiirtts of whisky were
found. The two men. giving the names
ol X. I'l Norwood and W. DaShelds,
occupying the car are said to have been
en route from Baltimore. They were
arrested and brought to Richmond.
The three negroes were caught as
they left the boat at West Point, the
prohibition agent forcing them to dis
gorge their supply of contraband.
Arrest of the five men and cotisca
tion of the liquor occupied little more
than three hours in ali. a record, con
sidering the territory covered by the
prohibition agent.
AMUSEMENTS
??Some Ilaliy" To-N'lght.
one of the most prominent and ablest
dramatic critics in the United States is
Hums Mantle, of the New York Even
ing Mail. In his criticism of "Some ;
Baby." which will be produced at tl\?- :
Academy to-night and Tuesday and
Tuesdny matinee. Mr. Mantle says:
"Good old elixir of youth: What
would the writers of preposterous farce ?
ever do without you!
"Here you are again at the Kulton.
lending absurd excuse for shrieking
laughter at the performance of "Some I
Haliy." And those that laugh hardest
each time you are mentioned are the
first to call you a silly old thing once i
they are again in control of their |
senses.
"Well, you are a harmless sort of f
fake, anyway. You make no serious |
pretensions. You are content so long
as people do laugh at the foolish com
plications you inspire. You do not \
claim to provide the best of farce
plots; only the oldest and one of
the surest.
??In Old Kentucky."
Land of chivalry, romance, illicit
stills, love. hate, jealousy and a verit
able fairyland from a scenic stand
point. what more could a playwright
desire for inspiration? Such a land
is the mountain and l? 31.o grass region
of Kentucky, ami Charles T. Dazev 1
has painted a picture and woven a
story s.i lifelike of the peopel of this
interesting spot that it has endured'
t'm: more than a quarter of a con- I
tury.

and how many of them have lived. The
lingers of one hand will suilleo to
count the ones you ?-an remember, and
n" a single one has been produced
continuously, season after season, in
tiie theaters of our country and the
old world as has this, masterpiece
irom Dazey's pen.
This grand old masterpiece comes
; n the Academy oti Wednesday and
Thursday and Thursday matinee.

Kind ar>' concerned. Years ago, be
fore there wer" such things as sub

?i> an utter impossibility. Managers
and the theater-going public possibly!

they never thought they would live,

I sermons based upon the world war
and its lessons.
"What will be the view of men re
turning from the front." Dr. Howie
asked. "Will they, who have borne
each other's burdens and come to re
spect the value of true comradeship,
be satistied hat America yo back to
the old way of commercial greed and
petty jealousy'.' I don't think so. He
adjustments in the relationships of

The great responsibility of America
in the war and the large part she
must play in world readjustment was
brought vividly before him. l>r. l'.owie
said, by a scene in the streets of l*uris
on Bastille Hay. .V French chaplain
was in the throng of watchers as the
armies of the allies swept by in review. ]
Applause greeted the representatives of
each army as they passed. Filially, i
some one tugged at the chnnlaiu's
elbow. Turning, he faced an obi wo
man. who said: "You do not applaud
loudly enough. Don't you see the
Americans coming?"
"That," Dr. Bowio continued, "wns
the way all Franco looked upon the
Americans. Hike Israel of old. they
had a definite mission to perform.
They went as crusaders, as the saviors
of the world.

This chaplain told me, though Amer
ica bad left on the battle fields only
70.000 men to France's 1.500.000. thai
comparatively few had given their lives
that the soldiers of France might not
have died in vain."
In the pftnee conference at Paris,
said Dr. Howie, hangs the fate and
destiny of millions yet unborn. The
world, he thinks, is :?: the crossroads
of decision. one leads down the old
shadowy way that has caused untold
misery; the other leads to a new world,
the fabric of which is built upon right I
and justice and human brotherhood.

knew that a woman of considerable

The woman, whose identity is care
fully shielded from the public, eon- i

ntly. I'pon returning lie re she fell i i!. ;
and iier physieians, after treating her j
for several weeks, iinally decided that j
she had e/?r?tracte<l leprosy.
So decision has been reached as yet as '
to the final disposition of the woman.
Slje was taken to 'he isolated hut in '
tin effort to prevent any spread of tie- j
contagion. She is absolutely cut off

"The Shopping Center
The February Sales
?of 1919?Are at Their
Very Beginning
An organization which touches practi
cally every artery of trade throughout the
merchandise world, centered its energies in
bringing together for the February sales of
1919 me/chandise which would square with
the traditions of this store for superior
qualities, as well as newness, and the gen
eral elements of attraction?and these ener
gies are proving signally successful in their
outcome.
That we are prepared (and more amply so
than ever before, we believe) to supply our
patrons with new merchandise for the com
ing season is splendidly evidenced in the
many exhibits throughout the store.
These Exhibits Include:
New Spring Silks
Washable Cotton Fabrics
Notions, Trimmings, etc.
Ever so many Nov: Silk
Blouses and Frocks
Milliner*' and Shoes
Very line Silk and Muslin Underwear
Cloves, Hosiery, Neckwear
and other dainty accessories
?Also Special Sales of Cotton Wash Goods,
White Goods, Notions and Rugs. And after
you have seen I hem you are likely to realize |
clearly enough what an ideal time this is for |
supplying your future needs. |
