Opulent Bootlegger Going North
His Trade Won’t Be Neglected
Fm leaving .own tonight.
My car Is tune-1 tip for the trip.
My wife is already up there at the
lake, and for the next lew months the
only wet goods t il handle will be the
nut.-kies 1 pull out of the water.
Cm not b-oving became 1 I have to, but
I'm not staying in Indianapolis over a
hot summer because I don't have to.
Business lias been l-ri-k. especially lately
wilh conventions and preparations for
the Memorial day crowds, but my cus
tomers are pretty well supplied and I’ve
enough j i-'k in my kick to tide me over
several months.
When 1 come back in the fall i may
not Jo any bootlegging. The business,
while it is stilt profitable, and. worked
the way I work it, safe from Interference,
Is not what it used to t.e.
It's harder to hold old customers, be
cause there is so much competition and
because so many of my customers have
friends who get max tie a ease of "good
sttiff" they are willing to divide—at cost.
Then, too, the quality of the goods we've
been getting lately is terrible.
Lately 1 have had to fall back on oe
eaftional sales of two or throe and even
sometimes a single bottle, and that's
risky business. I’d rather handle bigger
quantifies. It's l"ss work, less risk and
while I don’t make as much on each
quart when I sell half a ease or a ease. I
get what I do make quicker and the deal
is done.
The fellow who has been bringing the
stuff up here for me is taking over my
regular customers, ami he'll do well, be
cause he'll run the business just as I
have b-H-n running it. and unless he gets
greedy and tries to make too much of a
kilting, lie's got a ebam-e to clean up a
fair sized pile.
1 don't know what line of business to
