Thomas, 7 deputy sheriffs and 22 federal officers. He was put under a $2,000 bond and evidently went back to work makin? more white mule. When raided in May the officers located a two rAory basement under his house. Plenty of mash and stills were found. On the first floor of t!ie basement was discovered a subterranean passageway to an unused well. His equip-nient and liquor were taken to the Terre Haute .iail.  If the courts do not set busy and send some of these illicit distille-s to prison, or deport them, additions will have to be constructed to the jails of Vermillion and Vigo counties to make room for the stills, booze and raisins confiscated.  In a raid on Thureday afternoon officers found at Blanford at the residence of Joe Audis three stills and Avhai was thoutcht to be a factory where the stills are made. A larpe quantity of sheet copper, copper .scraps, coppersmitli'.s tools and work benches were found here. Stills were also found at Easytown and Shirkie-ville.—Hoosier State.  inore than ;;,nOO,OOU American 1 children.

FOUNTAIN COUNTY  HEALTH CRUSADE  I'\iuntain ("uunly is i;oing lo lake a forward step in the important work of reaching Child Health Hygiene this year. The work is planned and carried oat under the directinu' a-ency of the County Tuberculosis Assooation, v.hieh furnishes all su!)p!ies. 'I'hrouuh the sale of R ■>! Cross Xmas Serls and Health Bund,-, last Decenih<T, this orfranization is financed. Ki'V. J. F. Kiskaddon of Covington is the County President and he is usini^- every possible means to procure a County Health Nurse; the demand is so great foi- PuVilic Health nurses that some dilliculty is beinu' encountered. However, the ^lodern Health Crusade work will begin in the Public Schools on Sept. 27. This is a movement that has enlisted schoo  system of tea.ching and acquiring good health habits and interest in public health. Under the Crusade system pupils do the duties which arc explained in books of physiology and hygiene, but are too often left undone. The results of the Crusade are physical improvement and prevenlii n of disease among children and their families, moral discipline and irii awakerdng of community responsibility.  The teachers and Supt. of Schools, Guy A. Waldrip, of F'ountain County are interested in this work and are giving their best efforts and attention toward a successful crusade. Each grade school is in competition with every other school in their township or corporation and in turn, the townships and corporations are in competition with each other. Standing is reckoned on per cent of Health Chores done by the children and each and every school, no matter how small or how large is on the same basis as to chance of winning the highest Health grade.  All the movement now needs is the co-operation of the parents of Fountain county; if they show as much interest in the work and willingness to do their share, as the Fountain county teachers are doing, the Modern Health Crusade will be an assured success and the good to the Health of the county can not be estimated, besides placing us in the front rank of Public Health work.  This movement is endorsed by the Federal Heajth Board as well as the U. S. Board of Education and by the National Parent-Teachers' Association, This work is under a County Board of Management composed of the following workers: County Executive Committee:  Mrs. C. L. Myers, Covington, Chairman; Mrs. J. E. Romine, Covington; Mrs. M. Mayer, Covington; Miss La Verne Glascock, Covington; Miss Ruth Adamson, Covington. Township Chairmen:  Logan, Ella Hulhhan; Richland, Carson Smith; Shawnee, Elba Brown; Davis, Mamie Glenn; Troy, Elizabeth Ward; VanBuren, Elizabeth Boggs; Cain, Goldie Little; Fulton, Mattie Hiigle; Wabash, Fredia Jarred; Mill-creek, Jessie DeHaven; Jackson, J. J. W. Brown; Covington Schools, D. E.

THE STORY HOUR  Each Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock, under the direction of the Tri Kappa's, there has been conducted at the public library a story felling hour for the children, which has proven very interesting and profitable.  On Wednesday morning of this week the hour was in charge of Miss Verna Glascock, who, in the costume of an American Indian gave the children a series of Indian legends of a historic nature, which was of special merit. The children were greatly taken with the same. This work has been in progress for some time and has proven very profitable.  With Wednesday's exercises, a vacation until the week our city schools open, has been taken, when the work will again be resumed. The same is of particular interest and benefit to the tots of our city.  Club Work.  The new pavilion is completed and will be filled to its capacity.

Waterman, now of Philadelphia, to his fi'iend Schuyler LaTourette. Mr. Waterman reminded the captain that he was aware that he was passing his 86th milestone, and as a sort of souvenir, Mr. Waterman had compiled a complete history of the 63rd regiment from its organization until discharge. This manuscript was read at the meeting. Billy Ephlin said that the historian was not quite accurate, for in the detailed accounts of certain battles, the historian had failed to note how badly Billy Ephlin was scared. This brought William Townsley to the floor, who insisted that he was frequently as badly frightened as Billy.  draw a large crowd each night. This company comes with the very best i-ecommendations. They have fifteen large clean shows, five riding devices and numerous other interesting attractions. They will make a parade downtown each day.

NOTHING DOING  The Senatorial dead lock, referred to in this paper last week, is still on with little or no pror.pect of a change or break in the ranks of the two leading candidates, since only the county chairmen of the three counties composing the district have the doing of things. Sure it is that given back to the people where it belongs, to decide, they would soon do things by eliminating the men that can not agree, and selecting some new man acceptable to the masses. The man not ameanable for the general good, is unfit to lead.  As per pre arrangement, the three county chairmen of the district met at Newport Monday afternoon, a large bunch of the various candidate's suppoi'ters being present for effect only, for the purpose of selecting a candidate to fill the place for Joint Senator of the three counties, made vacant by the death of the late Frank R. Pence. The chairmen caucused and voted until 2:30 a. m. Tuesday, the Warren county chairman, Mr. Stephenson, standing by his candidate, Mr. Shafer; the Fountain county chairman, Mr. Wertz, standing by his candidate, Mr. Whickcar, and the Vermillion county chairman, Mr. Hays, dividing his vote equally between the two counties having candidates. The conference closed after twelve hours, as it had begun, a dead lock, with no prospect of agreement.  When interviewed, each chairman expressed himself as determined to stand where he had been and there seems nothing can be done but wait for developments. The Fountain county boys seem to feel, however, that Mr. Stephenson will be driven to support a Fountain county man and all they need to do is to stand pat for Mr. Whickcar and the thing will be done in his favor. By many this view is not indorsed however, as Warren county with her big republican majority has nothing to loose and Mr. Stephenson is not given to committing himself to one thing and then doing another.  The public would do things by elimination, the proper way, but in this case must await results.

The boys and girls are putting the finishing touches to their entries and the competition in these events will be keen all over the county. Everyone who visits the fair should see this exhibit.

CITY COUNCIL MEETS  The city council met in regular session Monday night, the usual routine work being taken up first.  Following this part of the work, it was decided to advertise for bids for laying a water pipe from the new well now being put down in the eastern part of the city to the nearest main, thus connecting up with the city's supply.  The matter of the Fifth street proposed improvement was then taken up and after considerable discussion in which the city attorney insisted that the council advance the improvement, and which was opposed by 0. S. Jones as attorney for the citizens opposed, the council voted to defer action to September 27 th, when the matter is to again be taken up.  In all justice to the council and mayor it is to be said that they showed a commendible disposition to defer to the will of the majority of the property holders along said street, who are now opposing thé improvement largely on the grounds of the high cost of the same at this titne.  Rev. R. B. Kern and wife returned home Friday from a three weeks visit with relatives in Lykins, Pa. Although Rev.
