A Story of Mountain Moonshiners.
I make no bones about telling you
that I'm an out-and-out friend of the
Southern moonshiner. I know he
raakea whisky in defianco of the law,
but were I situated as he is I'd defy
the law just the same. I've eaten
with him, slept in his house and
watched with him beside the "still,
hidden away in a mountain gulch,
and there isn't one mean trait in his

lis little mountain farm will grow
a few acres of corn, but the product
isn't worth drawing fifteen or twenty
miles to market. Converted into
whisky it will bring him money
enough to buy his necessaries. He
doesn't ask for more, nor could he do
better. I've met dozens of them,

VHil Cholera CurelbS
Thousands of dollars worth cf
thickens are destroyed by Cholera
every year. It is more fatal to them
than all other diseases combined.
But the discovery of a liquid remedy
that positively destroys the Microbes
has been made. Half of the young
chickens are killed by Microbes
before they are fryers. A 50-cent
bottle is enough for 100 chickens.
It is guaranteed. If, after using
two-thirds of a bottle you are not
satisfied with it as a cure for Chol
era, return it to the druggist from
whom you purchased it, and lie will
refund your money.

and I never found one whose income
from the still was a clean dollar a
day. It's against the law, of course,
but the moonshiner knows that law
stauds between him and decent food
and clothes, and he asks you if he
has not a right to live.
One afternoon as I halted at a log
cabin up in the North Carolina moun
tains a puff of black smoke suddenly
poured out of the chimney. I had
seen such things before. It was a
signal. I was received kindly
enough, but it wasn't ten minutes
before two men entered the house,
each carrying a rifle. Had I been a
spy I shouldn't have had time to
breathe a prayer. 1 had a pass word
which made them friends in a mo
ment. Two hours before I had seen
a posse of men eating lunch among
the rocks just off the road. I believ
ed them to be Federal officers raiding
the mountains after stills and I at
once put the people of the cabin on
their guard. Nice sort of business
for a loyal citizen, you may say, but
let me tell you something. I had
seen twenty-two moonshiners cooped
up in a room twenty feet square in a
South Carolina jail every man pen
niless, half-fed, ragged and been
awaiting trial for four or five
months. I bought a dollar's worth
of tobacco to divide around, but lo !
the lord of creation in the shape of a
deputy marshal refused to let them
have it, and poured out his abuse on
us all. I had that episode in mind
when I saw that posse hiding in the
I went up to the still with the two
men. It was situated in a dark and
narrow guicn wmcn urancneu on a
larger one. Seven or eight farmers
were interested in the still and not
one had averaged 1 per week out
or u. iney were simply using up
corn for which no market could be
found. Before night came there
were thirteen men and boys there
with rifles or shotguns. A barricade
of rocks was built across the gulch
and every man swore to die there if
need be. I not only helped build
tnat barricade, but alter it was
finished I went with one of the men
on a scout down the main gulch.
had in mind the sight of eight or ten
poor devils whom I saw tried in
United States court and sent to
Albany prison on long sentences.
Some of the deputies perjured them
selves on that trial lied in a shame
ful manner, and they were afterwards
called liars and dared not resent it
A few ofAis wanted to make up 1
purse for their families, but the Unit
ed States Czar, in the shape of a mar
stiai, menaced us with ins vengenee
"They are coming !"
it was an nour alter tiarK on a
summer's evening. Down the rocky
bed of the gulch we heard the posse
picking its slow way along, and we
returned to the barricade. Thirteen
men crouched down behind the
rocks to wait. Every one had been
told to fire at the word, and every
one meant so obey. That volley
would sweep the posse off the face of
of the earth.
"Hist! Here they are !"
It was almost midnight darkness
in the smaller gulch. The raiders
came down as far as its mouth and
halted. This was the still they.werQ
after, but they were not certain as to
its location. Only thirty feet from
the muzzles of the guns resting on
the baricade they halted and debat
ed. Some said it was further up
some said further down. One man
seperated himself from the crowd nnd
advanced to within five feet of the
barricade. If ho saw the wall of
rocks lie mistook it for the end of
the gulch. He stood for a long
minute peering and listening, and
my heart thumped so I was afraid he
would hear it. Then lie rejoined hs
companions, ami we plainly heard

During the epidemic of ilux in this
county last summer, I hud hard work
to keep a supply of Chamberlain'
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhcea Rem
edy. People often came ten ir twelve
miles in the night to get a hottlo of
the Remedy. I have heen selling
patent medicines for the last ten
years and find that it has given bet
ter satisfaction in cases of diarrhcea
and flux, than any other medicine
have ever handled. J. II. Benham,
Druggist, Golconda, Pope Co., Ill
Over five hundred bottles of this
Remedy were sold in that county
during the epidemic referred to. It
was a perfect success and was the
only remedy that did cure the worst
cases. Dozens of persons there will
certify that it saved their lives. In
four other epidemics of bowel com
plaint this Remedy has been equally
successful. 23 and 50 cent bottles for
sale by Ritchey & Bostick, Dru

An important event in tne grain
trade has recently occurred. A new
pattern steel steamer sailed from
Duluth, Minn., during the latter
part of June with 85,000 bushels of
grain. Her route was down the lakes,
through the canal, and thence down
the St Lawrence river and across the
Atlantic. She arrived at Liverpoo
last Tuesday. Tins is tne nrst cargo
of grain ever sent direct from a lake
port across the water.
