A New Dodge - Allentown Democrat

Allentown Democrat, Allentown, Pennsylvania

We have been informed that there are some females in this place who wish to be very kind to their husbands in the army and have found a new and novel way of smuggling liquor to them. They provide whiskey, put it in stout bottles, well corked, and then place it in a lump of dough preparatory to being baked into bread. Thus the soldier gets a loaf of bread as well as a little of the "critter." In going through the process as above described one day last week the whiskey became too hot in the oven, when an explosion took place, scattering the dough and whiskey over the room in all directions.
