We have electric light and gas to cook and heat our home with, while coal can be bought for four dollars a ton. "Our church is the smallest in town but is very neat, well painted, well furnished and equipped with art glass windows.

LAWS ASSURED Intoxicant and Purveyors of It Lo ing Favor With the General Publici Strict Enforcement Federal Prohibition Director W. A. Smith states that advices from Wash- I ington are to the effect that at a con ference of Federal Prohibition Com missioner Haynes and various state directors and divisional chiefs with As. sstant Attorney Generaly Willebrandt, of the Department of Justce, agree tnents as to a more stringent enforce ment regarding the manufacture and sale of beer were decided upon. Cereal beverage manufacturers here after will be compelled to label pack ages and containers with the name of the manufacturer, location, etc., to gether with a statement as to the al coholic content, etc. All directors and divisional chiefs who attended the conference reported excellent progress in their respective areas, a decided improvement in puo lic opinion and general co-opcratton upon which depends in a great meas ure the success of enforcement. Among other things they reported that "home brewing" an indoor sport, is fast dying out. Poor results alter perspiring efforts over smelly con coctions is the reason given for its demise. The "kick" in most instances it was reported, is due to the off-products of fermentation or ptomaines, with the mash, in many instances, com prising banana skins, muskmelon rinds potato parings and even garbage. "Some of it has 'kick enough to put the worst tempered old claybank army mule to shame," said one of the di rectors, who also told how one still confiscated by agents which contained over two inches of filth and vermine in the bottom and reeked sickening odors that ' only' these agents with strong stomachs were able to com plete the investigation. 1 It was also expressed that the dying-out of this fad is due in a great measure to the fact that careless, un experienced methods caused an epi demic of acute indigestion, attended by many deaths, a natural development ot immature ; ttst, which, taken int the stomach and con ing in contact with certain c tides of food, create gases and result in acute indigestion. In reference to the concentration of branded spirits, Director Smith is of the opinion that such concentration will reduce "leakage" and "theft" to a minimum. Commissioner Haynes, in expressing deep regret over the number of en forcement officers assaluted and as sassinated in line of duty, called at tention to the fact that records in his office show that 25 federal officers have given their lives in helping to en force the 18th amendment, in addition to many state, county and municipal enforcement officials. It is desired that the public fully realize the risk to which agents are subjected and the splendid sacrifice they are making in an effort to banish from our midst the dangerous moonshiner and unscru pulous bootlegger.

Motor boat pa Vols on rivers, lakes and inlets have been very successful in. coping with the smuggling situa tion along borders. Canadian offficials to curb the flow of Canadian liquor into this country, have issued orders requiring posting of bond guaranteeing the delivery of liquor to its intended, destination, the bond being returned only on the receipt of a landing certi ficate from the port to wich the cases were destined. Much of the progress of enforce ment, such as the banning of the so- called prohibition joke, crystalization of public sentiment, reverence for con stitutional law as shown by editorials and cartoons, exposure of bootleor methods and character of bootleg and moonshine liquor, revelations as to the harmful effects of homebrew and home stilling, and cooperation of fed eral state and county, and municipat enforcement agencies, is attributed to cencerted effort of the Prohibition Unit to serve a righteous demand of the people tor enforcement and thru co-operation of the organization of state directors and divisional chiefs cordial relations with the press have been created, resulting in methods and means whereby the public is af forded information to which it is entitled.
