But last week Sheriff Henry made Jim Woody one of his deputies, and Mr. Barringer and the newly-appoint ea aeputy immediately decided to spread a literal dragnet and ensnare the 'leggers. Accordingly, a few nights ago. he stretched a two-inch cable across the road shortly before the 'leggers were due to pass. Then he and one or two assistants hid in the bushes near the road to await the law violators. They had waited only a short time when a wagon drawn by two mules was seen approaching down the lane. The moonlight dimly revealed in it the forms of two men. They drew near, conversing in low tones, and when. they came alongside Mr. Barringer one of the men re marked : "Shucks, I'd rather have this eallon of whiskey than those two 'shotes' there." Then, just as they were about to pass the deputy stepped out and quiet ly said: 'Hold on therei boys. Let's slee what you have there." They didn't pause to parley the mat ter, but one of the men lashed the mules into a run and theother rose up inthe wagon and hurled something over the fence into an adjoining field it didn't splinter into a thousand piec es, however, but hit against a tree and fell to the ground with a "plop" which immediately told the officers that the article was not a fruit jar. Then someone yelled, "Look out, there's a rope." But before the 'leg- found at the foot of the tree a rub ber bag filled with pure "mountain due . These progressive bootleggers had apparently discarded the fruit jar in favor of the rubber "bag, the latter being less fragile and more in- conspicious. ihe bootleggers were brought to town and tried before Esq. O. B Kector, who. bound them to circuit court in $250. bond and to federal court in $1,000 bond.

Hicks, Roane county, last week seeking to restrain Sheriff J. H. Henry from acting as sheriff and retaining G. W. Walker as the lawful sheriff of this county until the hearing that is set for October of Walker that the election in which he was defeated by Henry, was ilegally held be determined at the October term of circuit court. Judge Hicks de clined to grant the injunction and Sheriff Henry will continue to serve such papers as may come within the scope of his authority. It is understood that Mr. Walker will not vacate, the jail until after the hearing of his contest in October. Some persons have expressed surprfze that legal action has not been taken to remove Walker from the jail, but we are reliably informed that no results from any action could be obtained sooner that the October term or court and for that reason he matter is al lowed to rest. The position is a peculira one to say the least. J. H. Henry is the act ing sheriff and all prisoners are sup posed to be under his control. Yet former sheriff Walker continues to occupy the jail and seems to be in full control of the prisoners just as he was before Sheriff Henry was inducted into office. Should prisoners make their escape, as they have frequently done, it would seem to be something of a question as to which of the men would be liable.
