The prohibition bill as it passed the Mouse provides: After January 26, 1920. Every peson, permitted under the law to have liquor in his possession shall report the quantity and kind to the commissioner of internal reven nue.

The possessor of such liquors, how ever, bears the burden of proof that the liquor was acquired and is pos sessed lawfully.

Program Was Varied and Carried Out In Manner Eliciting Praise and Commendation—Over Six Hundred Dollars Is Amount Realized—Will Help Defray Debt Church of Our Lady of the Gulf, Saturday, July 26, 1919, will long be Red Letter Day in the memory of many persons of this community, for on that date was held one of the most successful one-day fairs known in the history of the parish of Our Lady of the Gulf. Perfect End of an Imperfect Day. The weather was ideal—right in the midst of rain and storm appeared this one bright, clear afternoon and evening, remaining fair and pleasant until after mid-night. The hearts of the many faithful workers were in deed lightened to see the skies clear and many felt truly humbled and ashamed for even having doubted that good old Sol would be made to shine on that wonderful day. Both afternoon and evening pro grams were well received by the great crowd that filled St. Stanislaus auditorium. Everything good to eat and drink, lovely fancy work and last, but not least, the gifts ox the generous “Goos <r> " were in abundance and were readily disposed of. The ladies in charge of tables worked hard before and during the fair, oreat Generosity Displayed. Nearly everything was donated. 1 hanks to their tireless energy and generosity of our townspeople. The young ladies disposed of a great num ber of tickets by their energetic house-to-house canvass, thereby sdd i g a-neat sum to the receipts of the day. No Expense For Adve*r!’?ing. There was no expense for advertis ing, the local press having given much space to the publicity commit tee. Both moving picture theatres showed slides advertising the fair eve ry night for two weeks prior to the oven. Children'Aided Wonderfully. f About fifty young persons and children, some tiny tots of three and four years, took part in the after noon program, and were a credit to the two sisters of St. Joseph and the other ladies who trained them. Best of all, the children are to be given a picnic at an early date for having been good and faithful. (We are sure, however, that the promise of the picnic was not the only reason they worked hard for the fair.) Proud of Lee?.! Boxer. Besides the fact that no raffles or lotteries were tolerated, the feature of the day that brought such an un usual number of men to an affair of that kind was the boxing exhibition put on by Mr. Russell Manieri and his opponent. The people of the Bay, especially the men who are fond of clean sport of all kinds, are justly proud of the fact that a home boy is known to be the champion heavy weight boxer of the Grand Fleet, and it was a pleasui'e to many to see an exhibition of his skill as a boxer. A Question for Bachelors. Now remains a question to be ask ed the bachelors of the town. How can you so obstinately resist the clev er appeal made to you by the dear old maidS (?) in convention assembled? And who ever beheld a lovelier sight than the blushing bride and handsome groom of the “Womanlcss Wedding?” To say nothing of the pretty bridesmaids, cunning flower girl and ring bearer, and other mem bers of the wedding party. Lively music by the colored bands was furnished afternoon and evening. Beautiful vocal numbers were ren ered and much enjoyed. In fact, everything was splendid and every body had a good time. One of the main reasons the un dertaking was such a success was the able manner in which the arrange ments were made and carried out. The members of all committees, under the personal direction of Rev. Father Gmelch, worked together harmoniously with only one end in view—to make the affair a success for the glory of God and love of the church. It is, therefore, with pardon able pride that the committees in charge are rejoiced over the receipts which, while not known to this date to the exact penny, are all of $600.00, and, perhaps, few dollars over. Let us hope to repeat the success in some way at an early date, as the faster the money comes in the sooner the debt will be cleared from the beautiful church of Our Lady of the Gulf—a wish and desire shared by each arid every member of the con gregation, *** LEGAL NOTICI..
