MAKE BIG HAUL
Last Tuesday Luke Ostcen and po
liceman Eck Simms halted a car near
Connestee Falls and search revealed I
the fact that there was stored in the
car 24 gallons of whiskey.
The whiskey and car were confis
cated and the men lodged in jail. The
occupants of thL car were said to
hail from Asheville.
The liquor was poured out in the
street in front of the court house.
Mr. Simms also captured a still
of sixty gallon capacity and destroy
ed a largo quantity of beer in ar
Black Knob in the Little River sec
tion. Evidences were also discov
ered that a number of chickens had
been killed near the still, as a quan
tity of feathers- were found.
O nicer Simms says he is on th
lookout fo" bli hi tieurs in town an-!
moonshine stiiie and puts them out
of bu-;ir.es when found.

Chairman Thos. I). Warren would be
content with $10,000. The State is
p-oinp; to kick and kick hard atrainst
paying such exorbitant fees and
radical adjustment will be insisted
upon. Half the sum suggested would
be enough. Judge George II. Brown,
who ha a larg-e part in preparing; and
defending- the case, Rets nothing; ex
cept the small pittance he is allowed
as a retired justice under the law.
He state at the outset that no fee
would be asked on his account.
Late advices are to the effect that
Judge Bynum claims $35,000 as the
fee for both himself and his associate,
rate of fifty cents a head, may se
cure members in the National organi
zation and signers to a petition for
the light wine and beer modification
of the national prohibiton law. The
fee in the national organization is
one dollar. Under the plan of organi
zation, the canvasser deposits ten dol
lars and receives two books of appli
cation blanks containng ten each,
which represents twenty members
These the agent ristributs at the rate
of $1 each, thus doubling his money
when he has disposed of the two
books. The idea is, of course, to se
cure a modification of the Volstead
Act and start the country on the way
back to the saloon, for that is exactly
what light wines and beer would

Mr. Alderman Even that sum is I mean.
Friendship by its very nature con
sists in loving, rather than in being
loved. In other words, friendship
consists in being a friend, not in hav
ing a friend. Friendship may exist
conjointly with other loves. Again,
the other loves may exist they more
commonly do without the higher el
ement of friendship. But only so far
as love finds its chiefest joy, and its
very life in loving, it is true friend
It is the very nature of friendship
to fix its thought on that which is lov
able in the one loved as a friend and
thereby to lose thought of that which
is unlovable. We are glad when he
hows himself at his best, and we
are never troubled if he failed to
.-'me as he might, while we surpasa--
mands their love and confidence in
a unique degree, and this fact marks
both the limitation and the grace of
the supremest friendship. The only
unrest of a love that rests in the
truth of one's truer self is the cease
less craving to love more. The deep
est hunger of a faithful heart is
