Hip Pocket Knocks Out Bootleg
v Writing to the New Vork Tribune from
Oklahoma. C. M. Harchet says the hlp
pocket business la very popular, while the
bootleg trick has lost Ita grip. He ex
plains this by saying that In a great ma
jority of cases the present-day peddlers
of booze carry It In half-pint and pint
bottles In their hip pockets.
Jn the old Indian, Territory days, when
every cltlgen wore high boots, the first
method employed to get. liquor Into the
Indian country was to conceal several flat
bottles In each bootleg. Thla custom waa
soon discovered, however, by the watchful
officers, and It was not long until every
time a deputy -I'nlted States marshal
passed a suspected cltisen he stopped him
and inspected his boots.
When It became dangerous to transport
liquor In one's bootleg other schemes were
put Into operation. The axles of wagons
were marie hollow so that thev would hold
Vjeveral gt lions of liquor, and one time
iWcocnanut trad In Indian Territory was
ninrp extensive than In any other place In
tlie west. Deputy marshals began to won

developed such a fondness for cocoanuts.

It used to be a proper question when
one was Soliciting a drink to ask, "Get
anything in your boot?" But now the
polite question in the parlance of the pro
fession la. "Got anything on your hip?"
Not only have the male "bootleggers"
adopted the pocket method, but It has also
been resorted to by the female purveyors
of Intoxicants. Recently Bheiiff Pale of
Norman arrested a woman who had for
several weeks been able to dodge the
officers. She was searched and It waa
found tht her ptttlcoat contained twenty
pockets, each Just the right size to hold
a half-pint bottle of whisky. Another
woman waa arrested at Pawhuaka, In the
Osage Indian country, who had the bot
tles tied underneath her petticoats by
means of strings reaching to her waist
band. It waa her custom to take a stroll
every afternoon along a path across a

Puch confiscations of property resulting
from officers capturing conveyances of all 1
kinds that are used to transport liquors
make It a common thing for caaes to be
docketed In the courts of this state as
"1'nlted States vs. two mules," "United
States vs. a two-horse wagon and har
ness," "I'nlted States vs. three cases of
whlHky," "I'nlted Statea vs. a roan mare,
an open buugy, harness and two cases of
beer," are cases docketed and called In
open court. If no one appears to claim
the property, the Judge orders the prop
erty sold at auction to the highest bidder.
Only recently It was announced from the
Postofflce department at Washington that
a communication had been received from
the postmaster at Miami, Okl., In which
was Inclosed an application for a money
order made at Miami, Okl. The applicant
wanted a "quantity of red liquor." The
order was made payable to a concern
In a nearby city, In another state, and In,
the amount space on the application the
term "IS quarts" was, Inserted and In the
dollar space the sum, 16.80. It developed
that the concern had distributed literature

J. I.. Burns, the deputy federal enforce

method employed by the bootleggers to de

something better thun the customary bot

needle the bootlegger removes a portion of
the bottom of a bottle which bears a "bot
tled in bond" label. The contents are re
moved, cheaper goods substituted, the sec-

by the hot needle. The purchaser Is com

And no thought of tomorrow because 'twas

They were careless old

And perhaps you remember,

When our purses were lean and our

That we caviled with Time, and denied
him the right
To remind us that hours were slipping

When our pursts are fat, and our hearts
Then a friend was a friend; both the wit
and the brawn
Were at play in defense of a comrade's
And the song that we sang was the song
of the swan.
When our purses were lean and our
hearts were light.
Oh. my friends of the past, are there any
Who would honor a friend without think

Is there one of us left who would give

New Village Blacksmith
I rider a costly canopy
The village blacksmith sits;
Before him la a touring car
Broken to little bits
And the owner, and the chauffeur, too,
Have almost lost their wits.
The village blacksmith smiles with glee
As he lights his fat cigar
He tells his helpers what to do
To straighten up the car
And the owner, and the chauffeur, too,
Stand humbly where they are.
The village blacksmith puffs his weed
And smiles a smile of cheer
The while his helpers pump, the tire
And monkey with the gear
And the owner, and the chauffeur, too.
Bland reverently near.
Behind the village blacksmith Is
The portal of his shop;
The shop Is very large In size.
With a tiled roof on top
And the owner, and the chauffeur, too.
At It were glad to stop.
The children, going home from school,
Look in at the open door;
They like to see him make his bills.
And hear the owners roar
And the chauffeurs weep as they declare
They ne er paid that before.
He goes each morning to the bank
'And salts away his cash:
A high silk hat and long frock coat
Help him to cut a dash
But the owner, and the chauffeur, too.
Their teeth all vainly gnash.
The chestnut tree long since has died.
The smith does not repine;
His humble shop hss grown Into
A building big and fine
And It bears ' (.arage " above the door
On a large electric sign.

The scientific reason for serving appla
sauce with roast goose, the benefits of
strawberries and lemons for the gouty,
and the antiseptic qualities of grapes and
apples were some of the points emphaslxeA
at a recent lecture before a scientific so
ciety. Instead of being bad for gout, strawber
ries and lemons, on account of their newly
discovered sallcycllo add Ingredients, ar
distinctly healthful. It Is only when straw
berries are eaten wtlh sugar, which In
fermentation forms lactlo and butyric acids,
that gouty symptoms are aggravated.
Strawberries, apples, lemons and grapea
also contain substances which act a
natural germ killers. Pur apple cider,
according to th lecturer. Is the Ideal drink
In typhoid Infested districts, as the typhoid

Pineapples are the Ideal fruit for the
person who cannot readily dgst meats or
who suffers from sore throat. The fer
ment biomelin found In pineapple Juice
not only digests meatf'and the rasein of

which forms In the back of the throat of

NEW YORK, March 23 Colored linens
are already seen In great numbers to be
made up for the first summer daya and the
colors In this material are more alluring
even than usual. Tan and brown, dark
blue and deep violet for servlceably wear,
and for smart occasions the pal shades of
pink, gray, green, blue and lavender are all
In vogue. There are also many new weaves
of crash and heavy linen which at first
glance seem almost like tweed or serge and
make excellent coat and skirt cos
tumes for traveling, chopping, etc. There
are i heck and plHlds and all kind and
varieties of elrlpes, and there ar rough

heavy hand embroidery, while many ex
tremely effective coatumes, on the other
hand, are very severe w-ltli only a sheer
yoke of lawn or lace and a touch some
where of black satin to relieve the plain
lines. A hand of black sntln four Inches
wide about the end of the sleeves and a
black satin girdle were the only attempt
at adornment upon one of the new linen
gowns of a dull tobacco-brown shade.
A useful style of dress for the woman
who must make each costume answer as
many different requirements as possible Is
a linen gown made with waist and skirt
separate and a Jacket provided to cor
rcsprid. The skirt can then be worn with
a white lawn bodice If desired; the Jacket
can be donned when necessary, and thla
costume really takes the place both of a
pretty linen afternoon gown and also a sen
sible linen suit when thla Is needed. If
the rummer Is to be spent In traveling,
when It is necessary to have as few gowns
to pack as It Is posnible to get along with,
and yet where each plate demands a dif
ferent style and weight of dress, a three
piece costume of this dexirlptlon will prove
Rajah, pongee, tussah and various new
grsdes of Japanese silk are as fashionable
this year as ever, and this same style of
three-piece gown Is especially serviceable
In one of the different grades of pongee.
There are also many new qualities and
patterns In the silks of this sort, stripes
being conspicuously popular.
The figure shows a very smart little aft
ernoon frock of Japanese silk In the new
empire erreet. Persian hand embroidery
and bands of blue satin were used foe
trimming. The silk was old blue. The con
struction of this empire frock Is such as
to make It a style becoming to any fig
ure. The placing of the tuiks around th
waistline and over the hips adds a touch
of originality to what might seem other
tvlae be a very ordinary-looking costum.
A charming little frock of polka-dot fou
lard, was a white silk with a large black
dot. Th lower edge was finished with a
band of black panne velvet. This same
trimming wss used on the waist. There
were sleeves of white chiffon cloth and
the little gulmpe was of all-over lace.
