Officers jail bootlegger camped in farmer's barn

1921 Last week Chief Hufstedler, accompanied by Constables Rhea and McCulloch, went to a farm home about six miles north of Shallowater where they arrested a man who was camped in the farmer's barn making chalk beer. The man hired to the farmer as a cotton picker and was making little progress at that work, as it seemed that his mind was always occupied at something other than his work, and the arrest revealed the fact that he had been engaged in the making of the beer for some time, as the officers found more than twenty gallons in his possession when he was arrested, the greater part of which was poured out, and enough was brought to town to make a test to ascertain the amount of alcohol it contained.

The man was placed in jail, waiting the action of the grand jury.
