Elkwood, Ala.—A Bible and a shotgun are the weapons one Alabama
preacher uses In his business. Sunday morning he preaches—with a shot
gun leaning against the pulpit nnd a
revolver lying beside his open Bible.
Sunday afterrnoon he ranges the
mountain woods hunting moonshiners
—destroying their stills, pouring out
their whisky, arresting them, and
shooting them, If necessary.
Tlie "raiding parson" Is the Rev.
John B. (loins. He is an ordained
minister aud Is also nn Internal revenue deputy, appointed by Uncle Sam
to help put the moonshiners out of
business. He Is a member of the revenue force of the Tennessee-Alabama
district, of which Frank L. Boyd, of
Nashville, Tenn., is chief.
1 came here to see how the "raiding
parson" works. I found him at work
on Ills farm outside the village of Elk-
wood, which is a mere spot on the
map In Madison county, near the Tennessee border, north ot HuntsvUle, Al.
Rev. Goins Is a farmer, preacher and
revenue officer rolled Into one. He's
in his early forties, small but a terror
in a scrap, clean shaven and a non-
user of both alcobol and tobacco. He
has six children.
"I'm serving the Lord Just as much
when I raid a whisky still as when
I preach," he said. "The Lord never
called on a coward to preach."
Ask the moonshiners and they'll toll
you Rev. Coins isn't a coward. They
know. Recently he was so active
against the moonshine Industry that
the moonshiners sent a delegation to
his home here.
"Looka hyar, parson," the spokesman said, "If'n yo'all doan quit bustln'
up our stills we ain't agoin to let
you'all preach no more at the meetln'
house."
Rev. J. Goins straightened his five
feet eight and replied: "I'm going to
preach a sermon especially for the
benefit of lawbreakers of this district
next Sunday, and I invite all you
moonshiners and your friends to be
present,"
They were. Elkwood'B tiny church
was packed. Rev. Goins was late.
Finally he walked in—with a Bible In
one hand, a shotgun in the other and
n Colt .45 on his hip. He leaned his
shotgun against the pulpit, opened the
Bible and laid the revolver beside it.
"Now," he said, "I'm going to preach

SPEAK CLEARLY WHEN TELEPHONING
Says a subscriber: "I called up a number the
other day, and almost laughed when Central queried a
a number quite different from that for which I asked.
When I had time to think about it, perhaps she was
not to blame, for it is probable that the number was
given indistinctly."
This is a frank admission and gives rise to the
suggestion that indistinctness may be the cause of
trouble more often than is thought.

Miss Hulette forwards a certain

Standing, sitting and walking correctly
are the first essentials to good health
and that elusive charm we call style
A LL women wish to be well; but all women
l\ do not appreciate the vital importance
J. A.of correct corsetry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ip-fitting and the wrong kind of
corsets we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in the proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians now recognize the modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best means of providing corrective support for many bodily
ailments."
CORSETS
The Original-Unequalled Front Lacing Corsets
have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to tlie figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; thc organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and thc diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in the one word, style,
Wc unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets
as tlie complete expression of modern corsetry.
Our highly specialized corset service is maintained with a full appreciation of the exacting'
needs of the modern, active woman.
