( )ur Sheriff is entitled to praise from every law-
abiding citizen of Jefferson county f<»r the stand he
has taken during the past few weeks in cleaning up
the bootleggers of the county. W ednesday night of
last week he captured 240 quarts of whisky from
Woodie Stuard and Bert Tucker a short distance west

and team belonging to Mr. Stuard, which will he sold
according to law. Only the night before this. Sheriff
Biffie captured C. I). Weeks, of Wilson, about three
miles w est of W aurika and secured fourteen cases of
whisky and a new Ford car. The whisky was de-

youthful lips the cup that tills his brain with tire—
if he could picture that mother and the hardships she
has suffered for his welfare, the hand would tremble
and the glass would fall untouched. But. no; each
step we take into the hellish paths of wrong leads us
one step farther from the influence of her prayers
and leads us one step farther into the shadows that
