Bootleggers 1n and near Albany
plied their Illegal traffic without
public interference until a state
prohibition officer chanced along

tire ring was placed under arrest,

'Excitement ran agog when the place was bought.
School children huddled to watch the rooms , renovated.
A sigh swung out: Sto'p here for tea." Lights sprang
up. It became a frequent pleasure to drop in of evenings.
In time, the towns-people loved the place. The inviting
sign, the cleanliness, the light banished fear.
Malny a product you didn't know and might not have
