The Erickson-Hellekson Lumber Company hardware store lays claim to the ecord for selhng genuine l moonshine stills. One day last week they disposed of four copper boiler stills with some hundred or so feet of copper tubing which is used to make the "worm."

In fact they had produced such good moonshine that they became famous and Sheriff Albert Johnson picked them up. They had figured as exhibit "A" in some celebrated moonshine cases of late and after Big Albert had smashed them up properly with an axe he sold them to the Erickson-Hellekson Lum- ber company who in turn sold them to the junk buyer who was thru be last week.Wheaton Gazette-Report- er.
