HAAGS IN ATTACK ON REED DRY LAW Indicted Druggists Call Act Unconstitutional. * The federal court has before It today a demurrer filed by attorneys for Herb ert L. Haag, Louis E. Haag and Julius A. Haag, under Indictment by the fed eral grand jury for alleged violation of the Reed amendment, challenging the constitutionality of the amendment. The demurrer avers that each of the thirty counts of the indictments filed by the federal grand jury against the defendants fails to state facts sufficient to constitute an offense against the laws of the United States. S It further avers that the facts set forth in the indictments are of a vague na ture and not plain enough to inform the defendants sufficiently of the na ture and cause of the action against them as required by article 6 of the amendments of the constitution of the United States. Other than that, the law is unconsti tutional and void, the demurrer states. The indictment and its various counts, the demurrer states, are based upon sec tion 5 of the act of March 3, 1917. This act provides that whosoever shall cause intoxicating liquor to be trans ported in interstate commerce into any state or territory, the laws of which pro hibit the manufacture and sale of intoxi cating liquors for beverage purposes, shall be punished. The demurrer holds that this is un constitutional in that it is without sup port by ap authority conferred upon con gress by the constitution to make such laws, and that it violated the fifth amend ment to the constitution, in that its en forcement would be a deprivation of lib erty and property without due process of law. Sugar Theft Brings Action by Detectives Sugar thieves who have robbed a num ber of freight cars in Indianapolis re cently broke into a car at Montcalm and Twenty second street last night and to day city detectives have joined railroad officers in trying to run down the rob bers.

Market St., Indianapolis j INDIANA DAILY TIMES, WEDNESDAY, MAY 26, 1920. The Right Thing at the Right Time By MARY MARSHALL S. DCFFEE. When Ifß Music. The various brands of music-making machines now on the market have made music a much more frequent form of diversion than it ever was before, but there are certain things about these ma chines that ought to be supervised by a certain code of rules. For one thing, the music-making ma chine never gets tired and therefore is capable of making Itself extremely ob jectionable. If you are In a boarding-house, you ought to make a hard and fast rule never to play your machine more than an hour at a time, and never to play it after 10 o’clock at night; also, if you know there is a child or an old person who Is accustomed to take a nap at a certain time of day, keep silence then. If you are In your own house, you can play the machine as long as you like, but even then it is a good plan not to play it late at night, especially if you have near neighbors and the windows are open. When your friends ask you to listen to anew record, you should listen with a show of interest, even if 1 you do not feel it. Never inflict your new records on friends who have a positive dislike to machine music. These persons are few, but they do exist, and it is the part of thoughtful ness on your part to recognize their prejudice.—Copyright 1920. j LAST NIGHT’S DREAMS I —And What They Mean— Did you dream of the neck? * According to the mystics such a dream is an omen of wealth, honor and happi ness. If a person already .veil off as to this world’s goods dreams his neck is grow ing larger it is a sign that his riches will increase. If a person who is now poor has this dream it foretells a fortune which is coming to him. It is a bad sign, however, to dream that one’s neck is growing thin and shriveling up, or that one has a wry neck. To dream that one is having hia neck so compressed that he is strangling is an omen of probable losses for speculators, money lenders, contractors and financier*, but for all others it is an omen of suc <esg after going through some unpleasant experiences. If the dreamer is in anv unpleasant situation at present. It is a sure sign that he will be extricated from it. To dream that you have more than one head is an omen that you will rise to great honors in the community—probably enjoy some public office cf importance. Should a woman dream her neck Is broken It is a warning to be on the look out or some of her Jewelry or other valu ables will be stolen.—Copyright, 1920.
