A SONG OF THE TIMES.
Out in the gloomy night sadly 1 roam,
I have uo mother, no pleasant home,
No one cares for me ; no one would cry :
Even if poor little Bessie should die.
Weary and tired I've been wandering
Asking for work, but I'm too small
On the damp ground I must now lay
my head ;
Father's a drunkard, and mother is
We were so happy till father drank
Then all our sorrow and trouble begun :
Mother grew pale and wept every day.
Baby and I were too hungry to play,
Slowly they faded till one summer
Found their dead faces all silent and
Then with bitter tears c'.-upping
Father's a drunkard and mother is
Oh if the temperance men only could
Poor wretched father, and talk very
If they would stop him fpom drinking |
I should be very happy again.
Is it too late, temperance men? please
Or poor little Bessie must soon starve
All the day long I've been begging for
Father's a drunkard and mother is
Washing With Kerosene.
A correspondent in the Detroit
Homestead writes: "There has
been so much said in various pub
lications for and against the kero
sene method of washing that I am
tempted to give my way, which I
think is a little better than any I
have seen. I tried many times,
following directions carefully, and
each time gave it up in despair,
because the kerosene would persist
in floating on the top of the water
and the odor of the oil remained
in the clothes even after they were
ironed. At last, by experimenting,
I have found that I can wash with
. kerosene and have my clothes
white and clean, with half the
work required in the old way, and
they smell fresh and sweet when
g iy?ey .fcome from the line. Toe
c?otEel?a?sbvvear longer, and those
. wnidh ' have-"become yellow from
. careless washing or any other cause
will after a few washings be as
white as ever.' Fill the boiler two
thirds full of water. My boiler is
small, and I use about four pail
fuls of water. Now shave three
fourths of a bar of soap into a
basin or small pail, pour nearly
two spoonfuls of kerosene on the
6oap, then add a pint of hot water
and set on the back of the stove,
stirring often until the soap dis
solves. The kerosene will mix
with the soap and more water may
be added if needed. Pour half of
this water into the boiler and it is
ready for the clothes. Some peo
pie put the clothes dry into the
boiler, but I like better to put
them into a tub of water, then
wring out and put in to boil. Put
in the finest clothes first and bi>
careful not to crowd the boiler
Let them boil hard for fifteen
minutes. Then take them out into
a tub of cold water and put the
second lot into the boilsr after
adding half of the remaining hot
soap to the water in the boiler, also
a pail of water to replace what was
taken out with the clothes. While
they are boiling get the first lot
ready for the line. Wash them
thoroughly in the first tub, rub
bing between the hands or on the
board any place which is still soil
ed, then throw them into a tub
well filled with blue water. Rinse
well and they are ready to be
starched and hung on the line.
Serve the second boilerful in the
same wa}'. Use the remainder of the
soap for the last boiling of white
clothes. After the white ones are
boiled put the aprons, colored
shirts, etc., except new ones which
will fade, into the boiler, and let
them boil a few minutes. This
will loosen the dirt so that it wil
come out with very little rubbing
in the suds water. Men's socks
and pants, which are usually the
worst part of the washing, will
come clean with comparatively
little work after boiling a short
time in the kerosene euds. The
colored clothes may be washed
through some of the suds, using
the piece of soap left to rub the
soiled places. In this way one bar
of soap is eufficieut for a largo
washing, and as there is so much'
time and labor saved I consider it
a very economical and easy method.
There aro many articles offered in
the stores to assist in washing, but
the kerosene method has two ad
vantages, the oil is at hand in
everv house and it will not weaken
the fjbie of the clothes."
PROHIBITION IT IS.

SOPEEME COURT SPEAKS.
An Opinion Clear and Easily Un
derstood-Reasons for Decis
ion to be Given Later-Unan
imons Opinion of the
the Law Must
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 8.-South
Carolina jumped from the dispen
sary system to absolute free whis
key. Now, after a whiskey reign
for a few weeks, the Supreme Court
has decided that absolute prohibi
tion is in force. The Supreme Court
unanimously decided the question
this morning. The following is
the decision of the court and it ex
plains how the matter got before
the court and the whole question :
The State of South Carolina in
the Supreme Court, April term,
1S94. J. L. Barringer et. al. vs.
The City Council of Floreuce, ex
parte J. Ellis Brunson.
These two cases instituted in the
original jurisdiction of this court,
being of a kindred nature, though
not involving the same question,
wer? heard and will be considered
together. The first is a case ask
ing for an injunction to restrain
the City Council of Florence from
granting licenses for the sale of
spirituous liquoiv, upon the ground
that there is now, no law author
izing the granting of such licenses
and therefore that threatened ac
tion of said city council in this
respect, is (titra viris.
The second ?6 a case in which the
petitioner applies under a writ of
habeas corpus, heretofore issued,
for his discharge from custody, in
which he is l?eld'?ndei^^afr?nr
issued by the mayor of the city of
Florei.ce, who is invested by the
charter of said city with all the
powers of a trial justice, charging
the petitioner with selling spirit
uous liquors without n license in
violation of an ordinance of the
city as well as in violation of the
lawR of the State. Inasmuch as
one of these cases involves the
liberty of the citizen, this court
deems it to be its duty to render as
prompt a decision as possible. The
court will therefore, proceed simply
to decide the questions presented
in these cases, without undertak
ing now to give the reasons for the
conclusions which will, however,
be hereafter done, in an opinion
which will be prepared and filed
as soon as practicable.
The court decides that under the
law, as it now stands, there is no
authority invested with the power
to grant licenses for the sale of
spirituous liquors within the
limits of this State and hence the
action of the City Council of
Florence in granting such licenses
would be ultra vires and abso
lutely void and therefore, the in
junction, as asked for by the peti
tioners, in the case! first named,
must be granted.
In the second case, the pet itioner
moves for his discharge from
custody upon the ground that there
is now no law prohibiting the sale
of spirituous liqours within the
limits of this State. This court
decides that this is a mistaken
view of the law. On the contrary,
we hold that the act of 1892,
commonly called the dispensary
act, having been declared uncon
stitutional in all its provisions, ex
cept that forbiddiug the granting!
of licenses to sell spirituous liquors
after the day therein named, the
repealing douse of that actfell and
must be regarded as if never
enacted, and hence the previous
laws forbidding the sale of
spirituous liquors without a license
remain of force, under which the
petitionor may lawfully be in
dicted. In addition to the prisoner
thismay also be proceeded against
for violation of the ordinance of the
city cf Florence mentioned in the
warrant under which he had been
arrested and is now held in
custody. It is, therefore, ordered
that in the case first named in the
the title of this order] an injune
tion do issue as prayed for in this
petition. It is further ordered,
that, in the second case named in
the title hereof, the motion of the
petitioner for a ditchage be re
fused; and that the said J. Ellis
Brunson be remanded to the
custody of the chief of police of
the city of Florence to be by him
safely kept until he is thence
delivered by due course of law,
this eighth day of May, 189-1.
HENRY MCIVER, S. J.
S. MCGOWAN, A. J.
Y. J. POPE, A. J.
Most of the saloon keepers here
say that they will abide by the de
cision and close their places of
business as soon as they under
stand the situation fully. There is
little doubt that the decision means
just what it says. It will be seen
the court goes so far as to order
the prosecution of the man who
instituted the habeas corpus pro
codings before it.
The question is asked if there is
any law for the punishment of
violators ; section 1734 of the gene
ral statutes imposes a fine of not
less than $200 or a sentence of
not lss than 6 months in^ the
penitentiary on all persons who
sell whiskey without a license. AP
the court decides that there is no
power in the State authorizii g the
issuing of license, any person sel
ling without license, will be sub
ject to the sentence given.
So far as known, however, there,
is no punishment fer the shipment
of whiskey into the State.
Governor Tillman was asked
to-day what he intended lo do
about trying to enforce the prohi
bition law; he said he would lend
his moral support toit and do all
he could euforce it; but he didn't
have any machinery to enforce it.
He also said that he was glad the
uncertainty about affairs had been

The shock given to the colonies
must have been tremendous, and
even England was staggered. The
brave, pig-headed martinet has
stood out as a more vivid person
ality than most of the British lead
ers who left their bones or their
reputations, or both, upon Ameri
can soil. Out of 86 officers 63
were killed or badly wounded ; out
of 1,500 men a little over a third
escaped extinction; the assailant
were about 700 in number.
The picture of the heroic block
head who was responsible for the
tragedy borne away dying in the
midst of the panic-stricken troops
is the most pathetic of the whole
war. "Who would have thought
it? who would have thought it?"
he muttered in the agony of a bul
let in the lungs. "We shall know
better next time.'' But there was
no next time for Braddock. He
was buried in the centre of the
track that for generations was call
ed Braddock's Road, and the
wagons and the artillery were roll
ed over his new-made grave to
obliterate every trace of the spot
where the burly bulldog lay, lest
pursuing IudiaiiB should find and
desecrate his corpse.
I have ridden over the AlleghanicH
200 miles to the south of the old
Cumberland and Fort du Quesne
trail, and been told by mountain
eers, vho could not read or write,
that I was on Braddock's Road, so
strong is the tradition of (hat
memorable fight, and none the loss
so, perhaps, from the grotesque
misplacement of locality. It is
said that in his dying hours Brad
dock could not bear the sight of a
red coat, and that with his last
breath he deplored his insult* to
the Virginia militia, who under
Washington had covered his re
treat and lost nearly their whole
President Cleveland's Cancer.
It has been rumored that he has
it. If he would take a course of
Botanic Blood Balm, the best blood
purifier and building-up remedy
in the world, he would soon be well.

The South Carlina Experiment
I recenily visited South Carolina
and during my stay investigated
Governor Tillman's State Dispen
sary Law, which has been so
savagely attacked and mercilessly
ridiculed by that part of the press
dominated by the liquor power,
I was greatly surprised to find
how successful the experiment
has proved even in the face of the
most powerful and most unscrupu
lous opposition. The further I
investigated the problem thc- more
I was impressed with the convic
tion that the liquor traffic in this
country has received a wound from
thc simple minded, rough handed
farmer governor which will prove
mortal in so far at least as the
corrupting influence of the rum
power in public is concerned. For
many years liquors controlted
South Carolina; now South Caro
lina dispenses liquor. The saloon
now controls our natational politics
would it not be an improyement
to have the government control the
saloon? This question must be
come a national one, and none ap
preciate this more than the liquor
power. South Carolina must be re
claimed to the saloon, or South
will lead the nation in a revolt
against this most cruel ofall earthly
tyrants, and alcohol will be made
to serve men instead of being per
mitted to master him.
At the present time thia little
pioneer state is invaded on every
side by tho ruling power of this
nation. Liquor pours in like water
fro m a thousand sources. Ko cost
is too great for the besiegers if only
discredit cnn be thrown upon the
ex peri mont. Not only are thugs
and detectives and smugglers hired
to infest the borders and help de
feat the law, but lawyers and judges
have been turned by this corrupt
ing power into law breakers; pul
pits have been turned into plat
forms in the interest of the helUsh
traffic, and agents of liquor in the
garb of clergymen made to exploit
-Ua-&-i!ra,ure OT Cjhjd-iuTtjeTr ucrvoca'cy"
of lawlessness and rebellion.
Not only this, but the liquor
power might consider it a paying
investimcnt if by the expenditure
of a hundn-d thousand dellars a
month, the leading newspapers of
the country could be induced to
poison the public mind against
the measure. And those sufficiently
familiar with the anatomy of the
modern news papers know that
nearly all arc stock companies,
organized simply for the purpose
of making money, would not con
sider unreasonable the suspicion
that money hae. been used free'y
with the press in creating a public
opinion unfavorable to thc present
government of South Carolina.
Of course tho South Carolina
law is not perfect. It may be as
imperfectas thc first locomotive
constructed by George Stephenson
but the people did not destroy his
machine and condemn the inven
tor; they joined their efforts with
his and produced modern railroad
ing. No great beneficial result
ever came from the work of harp
ing critics and obstructionists. It
is the builder whose fame endures.
And if lhere are features connec
ted with the South Carolina liquor
law lo which objections can be
raised, let the critic first free his
own state from the domination of
thc saloon as effectually as Gov
ernor Tillman has freed South
Carolina, and then make such
improvements as he can.
After all, (lu- saloon is not a
local but a national question. The
principle cannot be fairly tested in
a single state surrounded by a
hostile army backed by unlimited
resources and proficient with the
weapons, fraud, bribery and
slander. To free the issue,
whether the nation shall control
the whiskey business or Hie
whiskev business continue to con
trol the nation, let me suggest for
a place on the national ticket of
the party of reform for 189G the
name of lien Tillman.

Tennyson Over His Wine.
Tennyjon-J. Cuming Walter.
Bu$ the first thing he did was to
produce a magnum of "wonderful
therrjr,years old, which had been
sent.jhim by a poetic wine dealer.
Suchliwine I never before tasted.
"It \^as meant to be drunk by Cleo
patraoor Catheiine of Russia," said
Tennyson. We had two glasses
apiece, when he said: "To-night
3'ou stall help me drink one of the
few bottles, of my "W?terloolSlo."
The bottle was brought, and after
another glass all round, Tennyson
took rap "The Idyls of King."
Lord Tennyson was fond of a
glass\of sound port. Upon one
occasion he pressed Mr. Irving to
take a glass of the precious liquid.
Mr. irving did as he was desired
but, ?ot being a port drinker, sip
ped'it very slowly. Before he had
finished it the decanter irom which
the bard had been, automatically
replenishing his gobiel ?vas empty;
Lord "-'-Tennyson 'bade the butler
bring^'fr?sh supply and turning
to hisvgu?st, saidydryiy : "Do you
alwa^febink'.a. bottl'?.pf port, Mr.
? Good Lord, Good Devil..'
The opinions of "some' or-our
politicians of the liquor question
remind us of the old colored man
who was picked up in thc street
one night dead drunk and put in
a dark cell in the lock-up. ,
In the course of thc, night he
waked up and began to cry out at
at the top of his voice, "Good Lord !
Good Devil ! Good Lord ! Good
Devil!" A policeman rushed down
and asked him svhat he was yel
ling that for, "'Cause this nigger
don't know whose hands he's got
into," was the reply.
