SATE HIM FROM DISGRACE
L'ol. llojt'N True Friend^ are Called
I'pon to Save Him From Himneir.
It. In Rtihsfant lullv claimed bv the friends Of
Jol. Hoyt tbat If be should be elected Governor
tie will enforce tbe dispensary law more
?fiectually than has Governor McSw^eney
taring his administration; Ibat while be resards
the dispensary law as a most iniquitous
ieraorallzlng and wicked law. and while he
considers the State's engaging in the sale of
liquor as most shameful and as unbecoming a
mgbtoned Christian people; still as a conicienclous.
Christian mac, having a prooer
regard for the oath of office which he would
>e required to lake II elected governor, be
vould honestly endeavor to enforce thai law
lowever much he might disapprove of It.
It Col. Uoyt really believes it sinful for
in individual to engage in the sale of liquor,
ind It would seem that be does from his
jtterance on the stump, or for the State,
which Is merely an aggregation of lndividiaiR,
to engage In the liquor traffic, I can't
understand how he can hope to escape Incur.
Iok a very considerable portion of the guilt
indsin attaching thereto, while engaged as
governor ol the State in enforcing the law
providing for such sale.
I can undersland how a Christian man may
ictasa civil ruler when properly called by
mis fellow citizens to do so, and bow such an
jne should feel bound to enforce the laws to
lupport which be had taken a solemn oath,
aotwlthctandlng many or said laws might
nr?t ro/'Alva hiss nnnmvftl hill I (UMi't see bow
iny conscientious Christian can seek a j.?osl
Lion the obtaining of which would necessitate
tns doing that which his own conscience tells
blm Is grossly wrong and sinful.
It occurs to me that no real friend of Col.
Hoyt, one bavlDg a care for tbat gentleman's
peace of conscience, conld vote to put him In
& position where he would be forced every
day of his official career, to do vlolence'to the
Col. Hoyt, when at Abbeville, asked the
voters, whom he addressed If any one
of them would like to see his son occupying
the position of dispenser?as much, as to
say that be regarded It as a disgrace to any
one to All such a position?and yet he Is seeking
to become the head and front of the dispensary
system, the chief mogul of all the
bar rooms of the State. Oh consistency !
1 call upon all the true friends of Col. Hoyt
to come to his rescue ated save him from nuch
a disgrace,?save him from himself. H.
Mrs. Hosser Is now in the Northern markets
buying the cholsest goods for ladles wear.
Her stock will be as new and as bright as a
May morning, and no lady iu Abbeville cau
fall to see her stock, and learn her prices. If
a good suit of clothes Is necessary for a man,
a pretty outfit for a woman is vital oi Importance.
Who wants to count a woman In
Drean Well, v
Every man should ouy doming as nne as
bis purse will allow. If dress dots not make
tbe man, it certainly is an index to the man.
A good index is worth much. Messrs. Hall <fc
Anderson have perhaps a car load new goods,
and they Invite all men who wear olotbes to
call and see them. Their stook was selected
to suit every taste and every puree. A good
suit is important. See Hall A Anderson's

"Prohibition only means restriction. It cannot
mean anything else."
liev. W. Smith says so In tbe Soulhern
Christian Advocate of July 19, 1900. He is
eminently right. Any man who votes for
prohlbltltlon, thinking It will prohibit, lacks
wisdom and Is without understanding.
Numbers will vote for prohibition In order
to net liquor Iree.?Darlington Messenger.
Yes that Is the sltuatlou In a nutshell. 11

thought they would actually get what
they pretended to be voting for, there would
not be more than two dozen prohibition voles
