Protect Her Colt

Local Negro Must
Serve Jail Term

Charles Taylor, local negro, was committed to the county jail here Thursday to serve 65 days fro an unexpired 90-day sentence for violating the prohibition law.

Taylor's home was raided three weeks ago by attaches of the sheriff's office, who confiscated a quantity of homemade liquor.

At the time of the raid Taylor was under a suspended sentence for a similar offense.

Judge Fred Jansonius revoked the suspension and Taylor was taken into custody this morning to serve the balance of his sentence.
