REAGAN CAUGHT AGAIN.
This Old Blockader is Landed in Jail
—Caught in the Act.
It does look like shat a man pas!
70 years of' age, his gray hairs yarn

earth is nearly reached, to keep on
making liquor after being arrested'

for some months, that he would learn
some sense and stop trying make
This is the case of Henry Reagan,
who has resided in New Hope town
ship for many years of his life. Many
years ago Mr. Reagan ran a govern
ment still in this county and we ex
pect made blockade liquor as a side
line. However, after he quit the gov
ernment still he put up a still of his
own and for years and up to the pres
ent time he has ’ made blockade li
quor. It is said Reagan made pure
liquor and his reputation in that line
was known nearly everywhere block
ade liquor was sold. T
■ Sheriff Blair has put.a quietus on
- Reagan’s liquor making .that possibly
n will stop him in his foolish career.
The sheriff has for some time been
1 trying to locate the man. The last
> time he was under arrest it is said
I] he skipped his bond and for that of
[! sense the sheriff has been trying to
> find Reagan. During Regan's absence
! several parties in Pittsboro have re
ceived letters from him purnortiner to
be mailed in Cuba. He might have
i been over there and he might have
been in the woods of New Hope mak
ing liquor. At any rate, Sheriff Blair
received a radio message that his man
1 was making liquor and he and several
deputies- made their way to where
Reagan lives before day last Friday
morning and surrounded the house,
part of the officers hiding: in bushes
in front of the house and the sheriff
and two or three officers hiding in the
woods in the rear.
In approaching the house Sheriff
Blair accidentally ran on the still.
Getting at a distance of 75 yards the
officers hid themselves and waited re
A short while after daybreak Rea
gan came to the still and built a fire
under it. He returned to his house
and this time he came back riding a
mule with another bag of meal, a wo
man leading the mule. The woman
then led the mule to a field and be
Then Reagan went to work at his
still. In a few minutes he was so
deeply interested in mopping his malt
and beer that he never suspicioned
that anyone was near him—and he
kept stirring his mash. With light
footsteps, a pistol in hand Sheriff
Blair crept up and grabbed Reagan
behind in his belt and point) the
pistol in his face told his man to hold
up his hands.
Reagan turned slowly around and
saw the nistol in a few inches of his
head, quietly surrendered, exclaiming,
“Caught at another man’s trick.”
Reagan told the sheriff that the
still, which was in a fairway to turn
out, 50 gallons of liquor in a short
while, had been m use ove*r a hundred
years. Sheriff Blair says that the still
was one of the most perfect he ever
saw. Built entirely of copper it was

where he submitted and was placed
under a bond of $2,500 for an old
offense and $2,500 bond for the second
and probably last offense. He did not

He was given the preliminary hear

Monday morning officers went to
Reagan’s home and made a search for
liquor. They also arrested two white
women, Martha and Mattie Partin,
supposed housekeepers for Reagan,

appearance in Pittsboro Saturday for
a preliminary hearing, after which
they returned to their homes. Twenty

Another Oil Story.
“Refined” oil has been pumped out
of a driven well on the outskirts
of Wilson for the past several weeks.
It is being used for illuminating pur
poses and for cleaning clothes and it
is said that automobiles have been
tanking up on the strange fluid.
An option has been secured on the
property, which is owned by Her
bert Hines, a maimed negro world
war veteran. Samples have been sent
to Norfolk for analysis and an effort
will be made to get the State geolo

Real estate in the vicinity of the

on Hines’ lot, there’s more nearby.
