If you're behind the lines there is
no need to worry; if you're on the |

or you're exposed to danger.
If you're resting in a safe place
there is no need to worry; if you're

you're not wounded.
• If you're not winded there is no

If you're wounded slightly there is
no need to worry; if you're wounded
seriously, of two things one is cer-

If you recover there is no need to
worry; if you die you can't worry.—

We are informed that at some cafes, res-
taurants and gardens beer and strong
drinks have been sold under the guise of
the popular soft drink, Bevo.
These reports have been confirmed suf-
ficiently to compel us to take action.
The beverage Bevo enjoys the pro-
tection of both federal and state
authority. In preparing it for sale and
in marketing it, we adopt every possible
precaution to protect the public against
imposition and to prevent evasion of the
law. Bevo is sold in bottles only, we
bottle all of it ourselves, and we have
adopted a kind of bottle, crown and seals
designed to prevent imitation.
We shall omit no measure within our
power to defend the authority under
which Bevo is manufactured and sold,
to protect the public from imposition,
and to safeguard the good name of this
We therefore give fair warning that we
shall refuse to sell our products to those
