Chief Allen Says He Doesn't Know What Can Be Done. *T don't know "what can be done, if anything, regarding the new booze clubs," said Chief Allen TVednesdaj. °The plan ot these clubs Is being- Investigated by the city le^al department and by the state's attorney." AKE POPULAR Those clubs t h a t are already in operation are said to be popular. John Keibrrt's club tn the room formerly occupied by the Seiheit Bms. saloon on North Water street, has been in operation for some 41 me. Pete Pheeney's club south of the river, nea- the C m m t i v club, is said to be the bon- ton club of all, the membership being compose! of the well-to-do yciing men of the city. GET DRINKS REGULAHLT. Under tha plan by "which these^hibp are operated the member can pet hi? drinks ^as regrulnr and as often as though the saloons wore running? wide open, and the claim !B that attornevs have declared that there la nothing Illegal about it. The clubs do not oven have a Kovernmpnt license. It is not n^es^nry. Ko cHy license is required, and the man Trho runs the club hml therefore a chance to make a good t h i n s out of It. It IB clnlmed t h n f c t h e m n n who drinks will not spend as much money as he did over the bar at t h e saloon. Tn the regular -way he would pay f i f teen cents for fint bottle of beer. As a member of a club he orders his beer by the case, gets it shipped to the club in his name or takes It there jThe ca?e of three dozen pints costs him about $2.SO. He pnya the steward of the club 6 cents a bottle for nerving? it. making the total cost to him S4.60 for the case, and if he bought It over the bar at fWteen cents a bottle it ·would cost him J5,40. The no-treating rule will also make it less expensive for him. ' J. S. BALDWIN AT CHAMPAIGN MEETING Attended 8ea*lo» of Republican Com- mitteenMU at Champaign. Attorney J. S.

HITCHCOCK'S OPPOSITE S * 10. You swing on "joy makin's!" Get it into your mind pretty quick that Prince Albert is just as bully delicious rolled up into a cigarette as jammed into a jimmy pipe--and that means going some, too. Just to change your luck, switch for a spell from the dust-brands and fire -brands and know first hand what a real and true jimmy pipe or makin's cigarette can taste like when you get the brand of tobacco that men everywhere pin their faith to-- It's all out of fashion to suffer with a stung tongue or a parched j throat. Because Prince Albert is scot-free from that sort of thing. If you didn't know It before, get this news direct from headquarters: Prince Albert tobacco is made by a patented process that cuts out the bite and the parch. It's just all-good, with a flavor and a fragrance and freshness unequalled by any other brand at any price! Men, that's some talk some talk, but it's right and it's up to you to match a dime against our say*so. Just lay a bet right here that P. A. will give you absolutely what you've hunted for years, eithef in a pipe or a cigarette. And that goes! Right now's the time, too, while the "listen" is in your system. Buy P. A. everywhere; in toppy red bags, Sc; in tidy red tins, lOc; also in handsome pound and half pound humidor jars. 'R. J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO CO. Winston-Salem, N.
