Evans, who say's he has had years of experience in ehfor.cing the prohibitory laws in the state- of: Maine, stopped qfC in BufTalo, says the Courier of that city, for a i'ew hours and related some interesting method's of conducting the liquor business under strict enforcement. ' Mr, Evans told of many ways of handling "wet" goods used by "bootleggers," but not one ot the hundreds with whom he has come in contact : ever used a bootleg as a depository for. his stock in trade. j "Wlill? the name still sticks to individuals who defy the liquor law mil- side of regular "saloons and kitchen . barrooms, the bootleg full of booze ' ceased to be when, the high boots witb loose tops went out of style. - i Was Easy to Get Booze. . ! "Up to the time of the passage of ; Clark, the AVcbb law by the federal govern- ; ment a Cew years ago," Mr. Evans said, "providing..for the labelling of all 'wet' goods handled by express companies arfd other common carriers, it was a comparatively easy matter to get a plentiful supply of liquor frou Boston wholesalers, and even afici that most nf the bootleggers managed to smuggle in by water or automobile .and there wore some who concocted a mixture out of alcohol, water, bnrm sugar and n dash of tabasco, which suspect ing "The hardest bird we ever had It. : contend with was. putting out booxe j for years. We knew he was doing it. | but we could not get the goods on him, i and it was n. K">ng time before we got j him, even after we were wise to his | system. This was his system: j "At night he would load his over-,f coat up with.pints, half-pints and,oc--l casiopally a quart. 'These he would j plant, one in a pile of clapboards in a ! lumber yard, another in a junk pile j and still another under a doorstep or | in a rubbish barrel In an alley.

E>uriug his tour of-duty in fhe Baltic, Kelly was assigned to~ drive for a British officer 'one of the big yellow American cars, which, it Is supposed, can go-anywhere. One 'of the last things his superiors told Kelly was "stick to your car whatever happens." ' - < N What happened, was that during the drive In the rural districts .near u Riga, Kelly's machine, officer and.all, became stalled in a snowdrift.. No horsepower or: ingenuity was able to . budge it. The British officer witb i his adjutant fought their way -to the nearest town for aid, leaving Kelly buck the snowdrift. For some reason the officer failed to retiiru. x Though Kelly might have .surrendered and sought shelter, he remembered his • instructions and gamely stuck. Night fell;.'so-did more snow. No. one came along the road and no twinkling light told or the .nearness nf human beings. Kelly, hungry and f"rlorn, curled" himself up in the car and slept. While awake he solaced himself with cigarettes., He spent a second : day in the same' drift, determined to stick. That day a peasant came =tlong in.a sledge ami io\\-ed Kully to a. nearby village and there he left the ear, returning'to .his huso by train, later passing .through Berlin to Paris. .Now he is spending' his off hours-looking for that "blamed" British officer. - -MASONS ATTENTION Special meeting oT-Shekinah-lodge No. 241, Monday, evening, March 29 and Tuesday evening March 3.U for work. . , T.
