Blending, bChesterfield's method, brings cut a new richness of flavor and mellowness cf taste that other and less skillful blending methods fail to "discover." - Chesterfields sure do "satisfy" and not in flavor alone, but in value, in quality, also in their extra wrapping of moisture proof, glassine paper that keeps the ciga-; rettesin every package firm and fresh.

But he can neither forgive nor forget the person, who gave him away."1 The first question a moonshiner will ask when he is caught, Mr. Mc Far land said, is not what the- penalty, is; but who told on him. . He tries every way to obtain, this , information with : . the . .hope . of .. ultimate wreaking." his ; vengeance, but the revenue agents never betray a confi dence. The name of the man who re ported the location of a still is known only to the . officers. ; - 'Mr. McFarland says the average moonshiner differs in all respects from the romantic type depicted in the movies, where the "hero" makes whis ky with one hand and holds the other hand on the trigger of his trusty shot gun. ,' ' ' It is very seldom that an armed man is found working at his still, as the moonshiner-will never meet an antagonist y face to face, Mr. MfcFar land said. If he wants to get an enemy lout of the -way his. favorite method is to waylay him or to con ceal himself behind a tree and fire up on him. He knows if a man is killed near his still that he will be suspected of the crime. - ' . h e mooshiner always respects his women, whatever his other faults may be and in all his experience with this type ; of law-breker. - Mr. McFarland has .never found a woman working around a still.'! She does not think it wrong for the men to defy the govern ment,' but she considers her place is in the home and there she stays. . Time was when whisky-making was licensed by the government, but even then the campaign against illicit mak ers! of it .was "conducted vigorously. The moonshiner could never under stand this. - It was his opinion that he was being discriminated against and that the government .was favoring those who had money and who lived in the cities. . ; But, with the coming of prohibi tion this has 'changed and the moon shiner realizes the-chance he is tak ing. He takes his arrest in a sports manlike 'manner, having played . the game and lost.!; -J:;.'-.

' As r-oon as the "liquor is made it is put in a 'jugs and buried or placed in kegs and covered with leaves to pre vent detection- When it is buried marks are made on bushes or on trees to show the owners where the "treas ure" is when they find themselves in need of it. - Only in the cases of the most ig norant moonshiners ls.ilquor ever found in residences This is a chance the shrewd 'shiner never takes. In making liquor, the mountaineer is able to tell when it is at the right temperature by dipping a small vial in the liouid and looking at the "bead' This is one 1 of the most dif ficult phases of the process, but the trained moonshiner is able to judge the "irtrht' temperature with a won derful degree of accuracy. .' 4 Since . prohibition went into effect het-er Iras' been a decided increase1 in moonshining,- Mr. McFarland. said, Be fore that time the corn product of the mountain ;so!d for $2 a gallon. But the market, he strengthened con siderably - since then and now com mands 40 a gallon. i ' As a result of the high prices the better class of men in the hijls it get ting in the game, Mr: McFarland sai rhe:;c men, many. oj. whom, are m Taenlial citizens, are wise eilDUgh not ',o go around the .stills themselves, '.jvt they furnish all the money an? out an' ignorant man in charge to operate it. The only bond required of the oper ator is that he will agree to say noth ing if caught.. In turn, the real own er agree to take care of ; the opera tor's family until, he returns from prison and is again able to eke out an existence with -a! copper' kettle, a worm and a stream of water .
