OFFICERS NAB ALTO AND
BIO QUANTITY OF BOOZE
Last Tuesday Sheriff Athay and
Chief of Police Hinter located about
fourteen cases of "perfectly good
boose" which hsd been cached a
couple of mllee north of town. The
boose was the property of three men
who were taking It from Kemmerer
to Soda Springs and other points in
Bannock county. The Oral clue thut
led to the discovery of the boose was
a disabled auto, which was found
Just at the south edge of town on
Monday. When cloeely examined by
the offleera there was s strong smell
of boose about the car which bore a
Wyoming number. When the ear
broke down tone time Sunday night,
tba men hired tome one to convey the
boose to the point, where It was
found by the officers. Monday morn
ing two of tbe men—Carey and Sten
sen —returned to Kemmerer, while
the third man—Johnson—went to
Lava presumably to get some one
there to come after the boose in a car.
When he returned to Montpelier
Tuesday night on No. 4 he was taken
into custody by the officers. He ad
mitted that he was an occupant of
the boose laden car when It broke
down, but denied having a financial
interest in the boose. He gave the
officers the names of the other two
men and aald the car belonged to
Stensen. Neither he nor Csrey have
yet been apprehended.
The car has been confiscated by the
sheriff, and the owner will not only
lose his car, but his Interest In the
boose, of which the officers estimate
there is about $800 worth. The boose
's now under lock and key «some
where In Paris" and we presume that
in due time It wilt, by order of the
court, go gurgling down a sewer In
stead of the throats of some of the
good cltisens of Bannock county, who
would willingly have paid $3 or more
a pint for It, had the forbidden liquid
reached Us destination.

Some of the towns hare gone so far
as to forbid any one from here going

Still others state they were told that

Now the tacts of the matter are, we
never had but eight families under

Bern, Jan. 7.—Editor Exam!nar:
The article you printed Jan. 8, HI*,
from the Montpelier Milling Co
seem* a very worthy one and one of
much Interest to both bread raisers
and bread usera. I am going to ask
you, Mr. Editor, for answer* to the
following, which I know will be of
much Interest to your readers and
especially to myself:
Is or is It not necessary to have s
certain amount of moisture In wheat
before a miller wilt try to grind ItT If
to, how much molature? Can he
have aa much or aa little moisture as
he may desire T
Can he have or doee ho have leas
molature In hard wheat when he
starts grinding than he has In soft
Is or la It not true that when sack
ed at the mill a »8-lb. sack of hard
wheat flour haa Just aa much mola
ture In It aa does a t8-lb. sack of
«oft wheat flour?
After being aacked and while In
he sack will one kind of flour gain
more molature or lose more mois
ture or gain It taster or lose It fas
ter than does the other?
How many more pounds of water
can a baker put Into *8 pounds of
hard wheat flour. Ilk* ths Montpelier
Milling Co recommends then he can

flour like the milling company does
ATTENTION, MR. FLOUR OON
- It occurs to the writer that a great
majority of the people do not appr

than will 100 pounds of soft whaat

We are not exaggerating at all
when we state that 100 pounds of the
