The trial of Dr. J. F. Minteer of
Lyndora on a charge of selling liquor

Kreift, who left town some time ago
and could not be found. Judge R. S.
Holt of Beaver presided and charged
the jury for the conviction on the
March charge, evidence of sales with
in two yetjrs prior to that time would
be received, and for conviction on the
June charge, evidence of sales between
March and June only wonld be received.
