„ Joe Daaha, the man whose opinion of
attorneys is practically nil and whose
whisky still was stolen from the yard at
the rear of the county jail after be had
been placed under arrest, will serve a
jail term of four months and pay a fine
of $200 for having manufactured intox
icating liquor illegally. This sentence
was pronounced upon him Saturday by
mediately to the county bastile to begin
bis term. Dasha was arrested
Judge H. H. Ewing and he was taken im
in his nome at Belt, where the still was
When asked by the court to say wheth
er there was any reason why sentence
should not be pronounced, Dasha stated
that he was innocent. In proof of this
he declared that he had arrived at Belt
from Spokane only three days prior to
his arrest and that it would have been
impossible, within that period, to have
rigged a still and fermented the several
barrels of material found in bis house.
Absent, But Sentenced.
Dasha's sentence was duplicated in the
case of Tony Selo, arrested last August
for operating a still. Selo was convicted
early last week without having been
present in court or represented by coun
sel. When located, he will serve four
months in the county jail and pay a fine
of $200, bwt his $1,000 bail will be im
mediately forfeited by order of the court.
After Selo had been convicted the
court fixed Saturday as the day on which
. sentence would be passed. Bailiff Frank
l>onoher called the defendant's name in
the court room and hall and when he
failed to respond Judge Leslie pronounc
ed the penalty after the same formal
fashion when the defendant is present.
The trial was conducted with the defend
ant absent that legal requirements in
connection with the forfeiture of his
bail might be met.

merely emphasizes the necessity of hav

"One winter 1 had a severe cold. I
doctored myself for several weeks with
various pills. Finally, I was forced to

and I was out of bed in two weeks. I
continued the remedy for several weeks

also relieved me of pains in the back

Pe-ru-na. being a tonic laxative, reg

tones up the nerves and carries its sooth

strength and vigor to the wasted body.
