MOONSHINE LIQUOR DEAD
If there happen to be any liquor
drinkers left in these times of ar
idness, here’s a tip for them hand
ed out by Internal Revenue Agent
I). J. Gantt: -
Be sure that your firewater isn’t
spiked with denatured alcohol or
Mr. Gantt Wednesday was in
receipt of a communication from
,1. 11. Callan, acting commissioner
of internal revenue in Washing
ton, to the effect that completely (
denatured alcohol is being used
botlie for bathing and rubbing
and for beverage purposes. Mr.
Callan pointed out that such alco
hol should not be used even for
rubbing, since it is injurious fo
skin and tissue. As to the use as a
beverage, Mr. Callan says:
“Where it is so used for any
length of time blindness inevitab
ly results andtlie continued juse
can only result in death.”
The opinion prevails in revenue
circles that much of the so-called
“blind tiger” liquor contains
large quantities of denatured al
cohol. which, in appearanee, is
very much like a good grade of
“moonshine” and which, they do
say, the unscrupulous can buy
cheaply and easily “doctor up”
a bit and retail as whiskey at
prices which set anew pace for all
Mr. Gantt also spoke of reports
that some distilleries are said to he
using potash in whiskey, quicken
ing the fermentation, making pro
duction cheaper and compensation
accordingly greater. The effect of
“potash liquor” is said to be
somewhat similar to the effect of
“denatured alcohol liquor.”
Mr. Gantt didn't anticipate that
information would be of particu
lar interest to such a bone-dry ter
ritory as Georgia.
“If, however.” he said, with
emphasis on the ‘if’—“there hap
pens to be any liquor drinkers
left, they may be interested in
saving their eyesight and lives by
staying off of completely denatur
ed alcohol.” —Elberton Star.
