COCKTAIL IN OP ERATION The "wets" and "dry" are marshall ing their forces in the United States for the greatest legal battle the world has eve >- , see ? ("«es the New York correspondent of the London "Daily Telegraph"). Both sides have engaged staffs rep resenting the country's greatest law y era * an( ^ neither side lacks money. Both seem confident and both believe that the .. justice of their case> . will finally win. The "\^ets" will try the teetotallers bough Leigislatures but the "drys" deny the .charge, which they describe as char acteristic of a corrupt trade like i brewing and liquor selling. One amusing development of the situation is the formation of a com pany to sell an appliance to the pub ]j c so that "every man can be his own distiller."

From a recent issue of the Belfast (Ireland) Telegraph we find this lucid explanation of how one may be his own distiler: to prove that t some State The apparatus is cheap, ] like a water filter, and works well. iThe "wets" are certainly not down hearted, they beieve that the cocktail a la mode, lately invented in Henry Ford's town of Detroit, may save the day. I have seen this cocktail in actual operation, and it lacks neither "kick" nor picturesqueness. It comes to the table in a cocktail glass, just like the ordinary Californian grape juice, a beautiful purple colour, and is tee total; but on the plate beside it there is a little tissue-paper sanitary tainer, enclosing a ittle pellet of yeast. You place the pellet in the grape juice, stir vigorously and fermentation starts immediately. As to the strength of the "kick" one may com pare it to the average brandy and soda.

It is certain, according to many authorities here, that no law will compel temperance and the most "drys" can accomplish is to make open drinking impossibe. All kinds of Inks at The Index.
