Mashed Potatoes
Peel, quarter and boil about 3 pints of potatoes; drain thoroughly and shake for a few minutes in an open doorway to make them mealy. Mash well and mix with 2 ounces butter, 2 egg yolks, salt, pepper and milk enough to proper thickness. Set on the fire for 2 - 3 minutes stirring constantly. Serve hot.

Saturday was a painful day for moonshiners and blind piggers of Clayton county, says a McGregor dispatch in the Telegraph Herald. Five federal officers, two state men, county sheriff and deputy county sheriff under the leadership of county Attorney W.L. Eichendorf, dropped in at various places around the county.

Most of it at the time of capture was selling at 50 cents a drink. ....... more
