when Sheriff W. F. Baker and his
in the presence of District
Judge Frank K. Wilcox and County
Attorney H. Grady Chandler, de-
stroyed approximately $12,000
worth of liquor. Eight hundred and
thirty-six quarts of that old-fashion-
ed kind, some red, some white, some
brown, some chocolate, and for that
matter other colors, were emptied
into big buckets and then poured
through the m*wet's at the county’s
building of justice. At prevailing
prices the liquors wore worth be-
tween $ 12,000 and $15,000, while
at hob salt* prices, if there be such
any more, the -liquor was worth
something like $5,000 or $0,000.
These bottles of “fond recollec

the Christmas holiday season. It was
being hauled in a big truck from
Shreveport, La., and
in Collin county, between Royse
City and Burrows. It was placed in
the county jail at Rockwall, while
the two men in care of the truck
and its “precious burden” were taken
into custody, lodged behind jail
bars and have since pleaded guilty
and gone on their way to pay the
penalty of a year in the state peni-
tentiary. Having been captured in
Collin county, it fell to local offi-
