Seven men, all looking alike and dressed alike, * were' standing motionless ", around a whisky barrel, . and she " could not tell which was the one, but she stepped to the barrel and turned the spigot, and the liquor began to pour out on the floor. One of the men sprang out of the circle and turned the spigot off. "Arrest that man I" she said. But was she right? Was It more likely to be the proprietor who would thus plead guilty and go to jail or some Innocent man with an unquenchable thirst who was horrified at seeing the awful waste?
