three! clr' four months there; would be
few to suffer, for stocks were hid
away that would keep most . users
amply supplied for . this length of
time.' Hundreds, purchased it by the
case and some even bought it by the
barrel,.. Perhaps the .heaviest busi

day and Saturday when hundreds,
many .. from surrounding counties,
came to to wu , and bought supplies
not wishing to take. & chance on se

lasting until the houses closed in the

maintained until the last day when
there was a slight drop! Cases con'

regularly at $33 to $35 were reduced
to $28 to $30.

bar, owned by Bernard Thompsoa
closed about 9:30 and B. J. Mat-;

! one saloon and the two quart-houses
remained open until the usual clos.

"We were having many calls for
case lots but we had none on hand.
We could have supplied a few mixed
cases but most of the buyers did not
wish these so we decided to close up
until the drouth passes over.'' 1
Just how long the dry spell la go

bn how expeditiously the arm is dis-diarged--at
least It does insofar as
the legal sale of whiskey- is con
cerned. However, the sale of wlnt
and beor, containing not more than
2 3-4 ner cent alcohol, will probably
be permitted within 'the liext few
days and in this event ?t Is very
likely' one "'oi' ' more" of the ' galoot.
