Another Speakeasy Raided

Report reaches us that enraged citizens raided another speakeasy at Brooksville one day last week, destroying booze, property and all else in sight - a la Carrie Nation raid.  However bad, they didn't do too much.  If all the speakeasies in the county were treated with the same kind of a dose, the county would be much better for it.
