This farce that is called prohibition, with the drug stores wide open to the sale of whiskey, is a sort of regulation that don't regulate.

A Mitchelll county man who hud twice supplied his friends with a filled bottle of whiskey with out being asked to sign the regulation application for it, said that ''Cresco didn't need a saloon, the drug stores could supply the demand." Our experience with mankind forces the conclusion that all men in a bus iness way are alike that the saloon keeper and the druggist alike are in the liquor traffic for the money that's in it, not for the health of the dealer or that of the publio. The man who doubts it has much to learn. JisS 'Corporation Rats in Our National Corn Crib' by Albinus A.
