Entering private residences for the
purpoie of robbery 5s not a frequent
occurrence in our quiet and usually
orderly town, but a fang of thieves
seem to have been on the town last
Wednesday night. Mr. H. W. Gibson's
place was entered through the
kitcken on Wednesday night. The
Diirgtars carried away an iue piuvi&ions
tbat tbey could find, and left Mr.
Gibson without enough for his breakfast
on Thursday morning. From tbe
kitchen tbey w?3i into the main part
of ibe bouse, and ransacked a wardrobe,
carrying off most of Mr. and
Mrs. Gibson's clothes. The fact tbat
dresses were stolen seems to contradict
the theory that tramps did the robbery,
and it te:ids to point to local thieves.
Ou the same night Mr. P. Rion's
pantry was entered, and a good supply
of good thiDgs to eat were taken
away. It is presumed that the same
parties committed this burglary that
entered Mr. Gibson's.

This remedy is intended ejpecially
for coughs, colds, cronp, whooping

famous for its cures of these diseases,
over a large part of the civilized world.
The most flattering testimonials have
been received, giving accounts of its
good works; of the aggravating and
persistent coughs it has cured; of
severe colds that have yielded promptly
to its sootbiag effects, and of the
daDgeroas attacks of croup it has
cured, often saving the life of the
child. The extensive use of it for
whooping cough has shown that it robs
that disease of all dangerous consequences.

Even those who can sincerely believe
that the primaiy object of the
dispensary Jaw is to lessen the liquor
evil can not claim that the granting of
special rights to hotels to sell liquor is
consistent with it. The hotel dispensaries
have been to all intents and
purposes barrooms. Liquor has been
nold in them at all heurs and praclically
ia all quantities. It has been
the custom tor drinkers to bay a pint
or quart of liquor from one of these
dispensaries, take a drink from it at
the bar (for the dispensaries have the
regulation bar fixtures), leave the
bottle with the bar tender and return
later and often at pleasure to finish the
bottle. If the clsims lor the dispensary
as a liquor reform are true, the
hotel dispensaries controvert all those
The special privileges were originally
provided for tourist hotels?hotels
like the Highland Park at Aiken,
patronized by wealthy people from
other States to who wines and whiskeys
-? ' - ??it
were, according 10 ice aouui varuuua
legislature, necessaries. Of the hotels,
however, which have the privileges,
most are not of this class. We hare in
mind several which are not ?v?n first
class hotels?houses which would be
patronized by 9uch people as do not
scruple to get drunk in public and
make nuisances of themselves.
The recent general assembly, with
some regard for decent appearances
and consistency, passed a concurrent
' resolution advising the State whiskey
dealers or board of control to withdraw
these special privileges. But
the State whiskey dealers, with an
eye to business, contemptuously rejected
the advice, "receiving it as information."
This action discloset
clearly fcbe motire# of tho ^State board
of control. The hotft dispensaries,
