county has ordered an election to
be held in that county on August
the 28th upon the question of

election contained 1,047 names.
Seven hundred names would h nye
been sufficient. It is generally be

maintain the dispensary it will
be voted out by a large majority.
Several representative farmers
who were avowed advocates of the
dispensary when it was first es
tablished have recently told us
that they were very anxious for
it to be abolished, because it was
so dreadfully ' demoralizing to
labor. Evan the negro women 6eud
to Edgefield and buy the meaueet

gentlemen voluntarily made
known to us their purpose to vote
agaiust'the institution that is a

taxes than to be worried like 1

money by it."

John Wannamaker, the highest

which he thoroughly advertised,

who lived twenty-five miles away.

pleting a full course at.tho Charles

very naturally thougnt that some er

A New Edge ii eld and A New Senti
Prohibition might have been

years ago, but is that any reasrj
why it would fail to-day? Tl?|

Edgefield was a dry town year?
ago that all of the drug stores
sold liquor. Is there a drug Btore
ju our town to-day that would
dare sell whiskey, were its man
agement disposed to do it? Nay,
verily. If would be boycotted in
less lhan thirty dayB by the best
people in this vicinity. Does this
not prove conclusively that the
sentiment has ab ml-faced
changed entirely. No amount i
argument can prove to a though
