days wited the good old State of
South Carolina had more bright
jewels iu her crown of jewels than
in that worn by any other State in
this great Union of States. Then,
jn up to I860, when the bright and
handsome Edgefield boys donned
the blue cockade of the Minute
Meu, whose motto was, "Equality
in the Union or indeperdence out
of :t." Thence our memory brings
us to tho 6th day of Janua.y, 1861,
when Capt. Cicero Adams march
ed from Edgefield ou Sunday
morning at the head of the Edge
field Rifles, one hundred and three
of the gamest boys that ever went
to war, most of them fron fifteen
to twenty-five years of age, goiug
to Charleston in response to Gov.
Pickt ns's call for troops to capture
Fort Sumter. Seveuty-five per
ceut of that ba&d^of braye boys,
later ou, were commissioned offip

the other twenty-five per cent de
served to be.

made so much history iii the suc
ceeding four years are still here,
"living in the past," but most of
them have gone to their final ac

ing ofoue of them, John Cloud
Swearingen.. I did not see a great
deal of him in later years, but in
the days of the sixties he was
handsome, chivalrous, brave in
bat le, and to his friends as gentle
and loving as a woman. He was
the life of the camp, and afier a
long day's march or a hard-fought
battle was ever ready lo carry the
gun of, or divide the last cracker

knowing we had been whipped,

man he was, went to work to build
up hi* broken, fortunes. All of
his surviving comrades know what
that means, Suffice it to say, he
did his best.
On the 15th day of Marah, 1871
he was married to Miss Auna
Sophia Tillman, who to his death,
24th of April, 1895, was a loving
and devoted wife. The fruits
of that un jon are two sons arni one
daughter; John, George, and So
phie. John the older Bon is now a
student at the South Carolina ?Col
lege and, although blind, stands
a? high as any young man in the
cuuutry, and, best of all, he is a de
voted follower of the Lord Jesus
Christ. The other son and daugh

womanhood, and we have no doubt
will be Heaven's best blessing to
their widowed mother.

LETTER FROM AN EDGE
Dispense With a Dispensary in
Sajuda County.-So Pleads
UNIVERSITY OP NASHVILLE.
MR. EDITOR: NO doubt the ques
tion : "Will Saluda county have a
dispensary," has been asked and
re-a.sked more than once. This
will be a question piopounded to
the people who have worked :ong
aud earnestly for that which they
now have-that is, a new county.
This strong-drink problem has
been discussed so much that the
people have become tired of it,
and they may be inclined to vot-j
carelessly when it is presented to
them, not caring much which way
it goes, or how the result is. But
because a question gets old di>3s
that lessen ils importance? For
example, when a mau is eighty
years old, is it less necessary for
him to bu a christian then than
when he is thirty? Is uot" christi
anity a life long problem, and yet
does it become old? Nay; it seems
to grow younger. Just so with all
vital questions of humai, iuterest.
This drinkiug problem is a vital
question. The man who would dis
pute it must yet take hhs initiative
in human understanding
Seeing thac it is a vital ques
tion, we believe tho people of Sa
luda will not act hastily or vote
rashly upon it. They have, for
many year3, been a f jrtuuate peo
ple in having the temptation plac
ed ata distance from them, but
now it becomes their privilege to
say whether they will place the
temptation at their door?, or
whether they will keep it at a dis
tance. Their decision on this
question will to a great degree help
to shape the destiny of the new
couuty. Now when tbe county is
in its youth, and while it has no
precedent lo follow is the time to
sGttle the liquor question right,
and, from tho experience the race
has had with drinking, it seems
that prohibition is the solution
This conclusion may seem to
many of our fellow citizens far
fetched, but from the premisee ex
perience has given it seems to be
the only correct one. It is a con
clusion that ail men looking to
ward the happiness of themselves,
their families, and, their country
w+ll-accept and promulgate, Do
children's rags and women's tears
move men to pity? Would men
live lives worthy of commenda
tion? Would they strive for the
elevation of their fellow creatures?
Then let them keep a temptation
like strong drink at a distance,
aud see that those dependent upon
them are protected and cared for.
Until aman does this he stands
condemned both by the moral and
christian law. Plato says that a
man who b-eaks the moral law
(strictly speaking a man cannot
be moral without, at the same
time, being religious) does it
through ignorance. He says that
a man would never br?^^^???i
consequences of his immoral act.
Then let us act on a sure basis
and keep from young and vigorous
Saluda county any unnecessary
temptation. It may b* alleged
that a dispensary i 3 necessary for
the purpose of supplyiug medi
cine, and for the purpose of aidiug
the State with public school mon
ey. In the first case the odds are
on the negative side. For medi
cinal purposes, the people can get
it from the same sources from
which they have procured it here
tofore. Besides medical men are
past coming to the conclusion that
ALCAHOL ii almost useless as a
MEDICINE. In the second case it
requires no effort to answer. "The
end does not justify the means."
Shall we slaughter part of human
ity to get money to educa'e the
race? Why could we not get this
money '-y taxation and save the
drunkard from the awful tenta
tion which the dispensary would
throw in his way.
I hope the good people of Salu
da will keep in mind the feariul
consequences of drunkenness, and
when this question comes up for
solution they will solve it for the
good of the rising youth of our
