Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/22/1911.

There is a rumor current that someone was bootlegging whiskey in Grantsville the first day of court.  It is said that he operated among the horse traders on the lower alleys and under the river banks, and that he did a thriving business.
