If an Investigation which the govern
ment has started Is successfully carried
out there will be a stop to tho smuggllnc
of saws, guns, explosives nnd other thins
Into tho county jail. An Mtempt Is now
being mado to try and discover by What
means certain articles were smuggled Into
the hands of Dings Nolcn while he was
confined In the county basttle, on the top
floor of the now county building.
During the examining of witnesses In
tho trial of Nolen several Inmates of the
county Jail told of the contemplated at
tempt of Nolen to escape from that Insti
tution nnd of his receiving a package
containing twelvo steel saws, a holder to
which the sawa are attached; a gun, oil
Many of the Inmates when put on the
stand were unable to tell Just how the
package was smuggled to Nolen. But
ono witness, Frank Moyer, who was lo
cated In the same cage with Nolen, said
tho packago was pulled up from the
ground and Into the toilet room on the
Tho talc of tho pulling of the package
tied to an ordinary cord up to the top
floor did not nound credible to tho gov
ernment detectives and Inspectors and ac
cordingly an Investigation was started
immediately after the trial. The reason
for tho doubt regarding Moyer's story is
due to the fact that a ledgo of rough '
stone extends out from tho county build- '
Irig Just below the windows of the Jail. 1
In pulling up a package over this ledge, j
It seems to the federal officers, the cord '
would undoubtedly bo novored.
On Just what theory tho government of
ficers are at present working Is, of
course, unknown. It whs hinted, however,
that tho nsslstancc of employes on the
top floor of the county building was
needed In order to smuggla packages Into

following formula: Get six ounces good

Murax Compound and one-half ounco

can mix. Ono should bo sure to get good
pure gin. also the genuine Murax Com

not give tho destred results.
Weak kidneys or bladder should be
given attention as soon as any of the
well-known symptoms nro noticed. Ne

serious forms, Brlght's, dlsoaau, chronic
rheumatism or dread diabetes, may do
