A very good meeting was held, and Attorney Ferguson informs us that several important matters were decided. . It is the plan of the local organization to hold a "Father and Son" banquet at an earlv date. There will be nothing elaborate, just a real good time. The Holbrook Committee puts it self on record as being op posed to a large assessment of money for the Scout work. This does not mean that they do not intend to push the work with all their vim, but simply that they do not feel that this is ' the proper time to ask the public for large contributions. YOUNGER SET FROLIC Last week the members of what we might term .the youngest set held a picnic frolic on the hills near town'. It was under the chaper onage of Mes.

More Potent Than Modern Whisky, It May Be an Elixir That Was Manufactured by the Mound Builders. Middlesboro, Ky. Were the mound builders of old the first real distillers in what has become America 1 This question is asked following the story brought here by two young men frouiUie Mulus section of Bell county mountains. They say they were exploring the dense parts of the hill country when they saw the entrance to a cave, whose existence never had been suspected. The youths entered Its labyrinths, and far back In the interior discovered an earthen vessel. They opened it care fully and they are quoted as saying there came forth a most delicious aroma. Investigation proved the ex istence of a liquid in the vessel, which the explorers tasted. Both declare, It Is said, that they were familiar with the taste and potency of corn whisky, but this liquid in the long-buried vessel surpassed "Kentucky liquor" in strength. They said that after a few minutes their tenses became dulled and visions of celestial delight burst upon them. Finally they recovered and carried the vessel away with them. They are quoted as asserting that -there was an inscription on the vessel which no one they have seen can decipher. It is un derstood the vessel will be sent to ex perts in ancient languages in the hope that the letters can be made out. If the mound builders left the Jar and its unusual beverage It is believed unlikely that the words can be de ciphered, us it is said the writing of tl.e mound builders never has been translated. The youths who found the essel declare a single drop of the elixir they found possesses the strength of a quart of corn liquor und that dilution Willi water is all that is necessary to obtain a "rea drink." Just what the attitude of prohibition authorities would be toward this find in the cave has not been made known, nor has it been sought so far. The niomid builders, from strange relics, mounds and oilier marks, long have been thought by some historians to have made their last stand in the Ohio valley. In Kentucky and Tennessee there are numerous traces of a strange people, the secret of whose origin or disappearance has not been learned.

Pay Us a Call WE ALL MAKE THEM If we did not know Mr. Sam Proctor of the Winslow Mail to be the staunch Demo crat that he is we should find cause to wonder in the last issue of the Mail. Were his politics of a different color we might even suspect that fie typographical error on the front page of the paper of last week had some invidious intent in saying that a certain well known individual had been made "Chainman" of the Damocratic party, chainman being entirely too closely allied tochaingang. But as it is we are certain that the error was merely the fault of "the printer's devil." ACCEPTSPOSITION WITH .
