Cases against members of the local troup 1 are usually confined to the regular meeting place, but this time a moot case was gotten up and the Scouts in vited their friends out to it. The case was State rs. "Chick" Snatcher, in - which the said "Chick" was indicted for snatching two chickens off the roost t of Mrs. Jackson. A jury was em k paneled and "Chick," enacted by J. E. 4 Currie, was tried under the Scott laws. I After a very interesting line of evi dence was introdlucedl by either side i and arguments very ably presented by counsel for the State, Price Aycock and Roy Taylor, and for the defense by U counsel King Murphy and Ralph Goff and the jury found the defendant not e IJguilty. Mayor B. F. Barnette acted as judge, The trial was written and put on e1 under the direction of Aissistant Scout- . master P. E. Brown, and was a suc cess in every detail.

PRICES PAID Irf FARIERS The average price of things bought by farmers in 1918 is estimated to be about 32 per cent higher than in 1917, albout 97 per cent higher than in 1914 and 108 per cent higher than prices of articles bought by farmers in 1909, says the Department of Agri culture. Prices of articles which farmers ehll were only about 14 per cent high. or in 1918 than in 1917, but about 97 per cent higher than in 1914. That is, since 1914 the prices of artiles which 1 farmers buy 'and prices of articles which farmers sell increasedl in about the same proportion. Farmer's pro. ducts were the tiist to advance but other products during the past year have overtaken the advance of farm products. Thus from 1914 to 1917 the advance of farm products was about 74 per cent as compared with an advance of 49 per cent for articles farmers buy, bi but in the past yeai increase of farm u products was as stated and onlly about 14 per cent for the other rtiles. t GIVE "SYRUP OF FIGS" tl TO CONSTIPATED CHILD l pi Delicious "Fruit Laxative" can't harm sc tender little Stomach, Liver ni and Bowels ar Look at the tongue, mother!
