of the world until A. F. Marript,
state prohibition officer who was
concerned in the case, told of it
here yesterday in conversation
The scene: A rural Justice

gion, miles from anywhere. The
small panel of veniremen was
quickly exhausted, many being
excused for various reasons. When
all had been examined it was
found but one Juror had been pro
cured. . on stipulation 01 attor

this lone Juror. i
Evidence was introduced, testi-
mony taken ana arguments aa-
