Thcl stills usually aro located in ravine and almost inaccessible save to tho? acquainted with the surroundin mountains, their primitive roads an rough pauses I so there Is a strenuou game of hide and seek between tii jj distillers and the revenue olllcers. If officers locate or suspect thp lc i ration of an Illicit still, their ap | proacb Is known generally when the are miles distant Nearly every mat woman and child in the district is ! "lookout." Suspicious strangers pas ! an Innocent looking mountaineer, wlv seemingly Is chopping wood or squlr I rel hunting, and he passes along th I word.

Difficulty of Pursuit. The "moonshiners"' by a short cu save miles of rough traveling ovei which the revenue officers have u trudge. When they reach the bus pccted location, the still has vanished With such a system the officers nr? "up against It." Their work Is ever more difficult In winter, because tin hardy mountaineers are perfectly n home in the deepest snow and Iht coldest weather. Several days before the liquor h to he distilled a location is prepared the cornmeal and barrels are carrier there on the "moonshiners' " shoulder) and the mash is mixed for fermcnta tlon. The still is not taken in at this lime, nor docs any one approach thi spot until the lime needed for thi meal to ferment has passed. Then at night, the still is carried in. ant before daylight several "runs" art made. If there Is the slightest bus pioion that revenue officers are in iht vicinity the still is carried out and most likely, will he put in operatiot i in some neighboring ravine nexi | night. Cheap and Portable. I Illicit distilling is sometimes car | ried on for weeks in a very sccludet place. Cheap, portable stills are ii i general tise. for when the revenue of i fleers capture one it is destroyed, rc cardtess of size or cost, and ever: I drop of the liquor and "beer"?fer . men ted meal before distillation?ii I spilled. Often a number of stlllH are in opcr j aiion in tho same district. The cheap est one is left for the revenue me: i to find easily, so that, thinking the! : work done, they may leave the othon to run. The officers have discovers: this trick, hut as often as they lean one rime, the resourceful "moonshin trs" invent another. Occasionally liquor is made in tin homes, generally in a basement 01 cellar, so arranged that the smoki from the furnace arises from tie , chimney of the house. But this i: ! growing less rrequcnt: it Is mor< < risky: there is no chance for tin t householder to deny ownership of tin I still. uMean Liquor."

Ir ihe scramble to escane the revenue officers. anv improvised stills are used some of them made from milk ram or srasollne tanks. No wonder thai the "whiskey" thus distilled is knowr as "mean liquor." To make it meaner end more biting the ir.eal is adulterated with Ive. plug tobacco nnc1 other such ingredients. so that a bushel of meal yields more than its proper quantum. A mistaken idea is prevalent tlisi the moonshiners arc a dangcroin class, willing to risk death rather tbar capture; but generally speaking thej submit quietly to capture and make suto to avoid injury to the officers ol attempt to kill them, as they realize that this means only a longer prison sentence, if not death. T'ndcr a new law every" man found at an illicit still can bo captured and is chased as a "blockader," even though he has no interest In the outfit. and may be only a customer. A Foot Race. The moonBhincrs, instead of resisting the officers, prepare one avenue of escape, which is used in every instance, unless they are taken l>y complete surprise.- They, know that the officers have no authority to shoot t^em and that the shots are only a bluff, so it becomes a foot race. They hf ve previously obstructed the line of their retreat with brush. logH and rocks designed to retard the officers.

Natural baits are thoHe which most ; anglers are accustomed to using. I Such haits Include worms, frogs, minnows, grasshoppers, grubs, salt pork, crickets and many kinds of real (Ish foods, soys the Now York Anierii*. n. The most common oT all halts is the angle-worm, and it Is used more than II any other because It can be jmrnred ir' so easily. This bait can be used for .^lall kinds of Osli, and is accepted m* large and small alike, no matter ,t; whether surface or bottom f* c lerr. g The worms may be used just as di they are taken from the ground, and ' they are generally used In that coni ditlon. Ilui If they are dug a week c before, washed and fed with a few bread crumbs, soaked In milk, they become toughened and make the best bait. yi It is a common saying that the big J , worm will catch the big fish.

The grasshopper is another good " I,alt. especially for surface-feedinr 7 fish. Perhaps no other bait will cause a lazy old trout lo rise so rjulekly from the depths as will a lively grasshopper. \ For blaek bass and other large fish. the minnow Is the favorite bait, lb [> minnow is meant a small fish, for small tlsli are invariably called ruin 1 nuws by anglers, regardless of their r species. ' Small frogs make good bait for all - game fish, and may he used with a single hook by inserting through the I lips, like baiting with a minnow. The jdobson, or helgrnniite is excellent as J j halt for many kinds of fish. II Crawfish are common as bait used : for still fishing. They nrn best at j the time thoy have shed their sIipII. t and in this condition may be hooked r: through the body. At other times they jj should be hooked through the tall. - Hass are fond of crawfish. A bait that . is quite a favorite for bass is a strip ; of fat salt pork cut in the shape of the i! letter "V." with the hook through >j the small end.
