Tho^r Who Become “Booties Queen"
Reach That Estate Often
By Circumstance.
Washington.—Prohibition officials
have decided that the bootleg
queen” is a myth.
Only 35 women have been sen
tenced to federal institutions for
bootlegging since January 1, a check
up by them showed today, indicat
ing they said, that as bootleggers
women were good stool pigeons.
“Women are the bootleg helpers.”
officials said. “They play their min
or part answering telephones, keep
ing accounts, and occasionally as
blinds in transportation. But none
has been convicted for taking car
goes to sea, leading bootleg rings;
or engaging in big time rum-run
tang on their own.”
One high official explained the
situation by suggesting that in this
as in other activities women are too
new to the practice to lead tt. Only
since the organization of bootleg
ging as a business, he said, has there
been opportunity for the leaders to
engage in it without braving physi
cal hazard. This development has
made it conceivable that women
should become leaders; but they
have not done so.
Tollow Rather Than Lead.
Extenuating circumstances recite
in women’s applications for clem
ency reveal their practice of follow
j lug rather than leading, it was said.
One 18-year-old girl sentenced to
two years for possession, for In
stance, has brought evidence to
show she merelv took the blame
for an aunt, who had been boot
legging regularly but on a small
scale. Another woman recently con
victed for selling liquor, went into
the line after her husband died
So little success have "bootleg
queens" had. officials said. that
they are not classified as are othrr
types of prohibition violators. No
necessity for devising special -tactics
to apprehend and punish feminine
bootleggers has been seen and the
only occasions on which women are
employed in secret work are when
masculine agents need a woman
companion to gain entrance to a
scene of violation. Even this use of
women, it was said, is discouraged.

MR. ROOT—
fcVBN FROM A
HEAD vwr*R*
SHOWS HIS SPITE
IN ODD MANNER
Angier,—John Kippett, of Vir
ginia, about 21 years cf age. is
charged in a warrant Issued at the
direction of Jim Wilkins, a tobagco
farmer on the lands of W. H.
Stephenson, president of the Angler
v Bank and Trust Co., with destroying
about two acres of tobacco.
The story dates back some three
months. In early spring Mr. Wilkirts
was needful of a tobacco hand, and
employed Kippett. Kippett, it is
alleged, was responsible for a four
acre growth, and likewise he was
to share on halves ;that is, if he
completed his job two acre of the
finished product would be his crop.
Bad weather intervened. To make
matters worse, Kippett, whose real
name is said to be Moore, was taken
slightly ill. But all the time Mr.
Kippett found it necessary to eat,
and Mr. Wilkins was boarding him
at a specified price, it is said. W’il
kins also reports that he advanced
the young man something like one
hundred dollars or more in cash.
But Kippett did not like the at
mosphere, so he left for other parts.
Messrs. Stephenson and Wilkins
were left holding the proverbial bag.
A few days ago. after the tobacco
crop was set and well on its way to
maturity, Kippett returned. It was
explained to him that his services
were not needed, but he insisted
that his employers were indebted to
him. It is further stated that he told
Mr. Wilkins that unless some re
compense was forthcoming he would
“pull up" his two acres of tobacco.
Mr. Wilkins and Mr. Stephenson
felt that they were not further in
debted to the young man, and con
sequently refused to pay him.
Tuesday night, tt is alleged. Kippett
carried out his threat—and the to
bacco—two acres of it—has been
plucked and is withering in south
ern sunshine.
Officers are still searching the
'V'ilds of Black river and adjacent
territory for Kippett. Soon after he
learned that the warrant had been
issued for his arrest, he fled

Protect Against
Dipthena Now
Many local health officers are
now busily engaged ift vaccinating
large groups of people against diph
theria and smallpox. The old idea,
which never did gain credence
among reputable health officers,
that summer is not a good season
to be vaccinated against smallpox,
has been forgotten. Any day in
in the year is a good time to be
vaccinated. And the only two class
es of people who ought not to bo
vaccinated are dead people and
those who have experienced a re
cent successful vaccination The
people who are fortunate enough
to live in counties where special
campaigns are being conducted
against diphtheria this summer
should cooperate with the public
health officials and the family phy
sicians in an effort to make all
such efforts fully successful. Get
your children out to the clinics ar
ranged by the health authorities or
carry them to your family physi
cian and have every one of them
protected against diphtheria. The
disease is prevalent every year and
now is the time to secure maximum
protection.

Ceredo Lady Tell* How She
i Was Unable To Find Any

Until She Took Cardni.
Ceredo, W. Va.—In telling how.ahe
was benefited by taking Cardui, Mrs.
Perlie Yelkey, of this place, says:
“At one time, Z had a very serious
spell which left me weak. At times,
I would suffer such intense pains
across my back and In my side that
I could hardly stand It.
“I endured this over and over
again. Every time the pains were
worse than before.
“I was In despair because nothing
helped me. I tried several reme
dies. but I continued to suffer.
“One day, I read about CarduL
Other women told how they had
gotten strong and well after taklifg
it. I have often been thankful for
that day. for after I had taken Car
dui for awhile, 1 felt like a different
human being.
“It did not seem possible, but I
did not suffer the old. torturing
pains, and I really felt well. I can
heartily recommend Cardui, for X
know how much I improved after
I took it. Since then, I have taken
It several times when I have needed
a tonic, and I have always been
benefited. It Is a wonderful help.’*
