Prohibition stands pre-emi
nently for piety, purity, probi
ty, peace, plenty, prosperity.
. Dispensary stands decidedly
for deviltry, debauchery, dissi
pation, degradation, drunken
Which do you stand for ?
Let conscience answer.

Bishop Potter, of subway saloon
fame, is now an advocate of twenty
minute sermoDS, which ie just
twenty minutes longer than he
ought ever to preach.
There is DO better lubricant for
the wheels of business than colton.
- Since the staple has been coming
in at a lively rate everything has
taken on new life. Everybody
loafers excepted-has gotten busy.

It"i8 quite absurd for Booker
Washington to say that the influx
of negroes to the towns is for the
purpose of polic? protection. So
far as our observation extends,

vheir wives or miptresses, as the
case may be, cook.
i The great number of applicants
for the beneficiary scholarships at
the Citadel, in the Bevoral coun
ties where vacancies have occurred,
? indicates that this splendid insti
tution is more popular and holds
a warmer place in the affections of
the.people than it has at any other
time, in the past, for a number of
. years at last.
Barring possibly matrimony and
the advent of his first baby, noth

? or sixty dollars for a bale of cotton.
- The old bachelors* who know
nothing of the first mentioned
-sources of delight unspeakable, are
now experiencing their highest joy
in pocketing more than-half a
hundred dollars for one "bag" ot
If building material continues
to advance as it has done within
the p?Bt few years, only million
aires will be able to live in houses.
The vast majority of people will
literally have to live under their
own "vine and fig tree," or in tents.
Within the last few days the
Southern Lumber Manufacturers
association has made another ad
/ - vance of one dollar per thousand
. feet on all pine lumber.
There are at present ninety-five
saloons in the city of Augusta, but
in view of the fact that the recent
legislature of Georgia increased
the amount of the license from
-fi??to $400, it is probable that
the Dumber will be greatly re
duced. Another reason why it will
be more difficult for the smaller
dealerB to pay the increased license
is that heretofore Jhe $200 was
payabl? in two installment?,
whereas DOW the entire $400 must
be paid down spot cash.
? Chicago woman who is evi
dently quite familiar with the
racial conditions of the South
?writes in this very seosible vein:
"The respectable negro has the
respect of tho whUe people. The
arrogant aod impudent oegro ie
not to be toleiated aoy where. Let
the black people cling to their OWD
race, and help their brothers up
who are Deeding help. In this
lies their salvation. It is the
North that keeps up the question
of social equality with the black
race, and still the North will not
accept them in general, any more
than the South will. Why keep
the pot boiling ? The South will
take care of its OWD, Thc best
friend the black people have is JD
Edgefield sympathizes deeply
with her sister towu of Johnston
in the heavy losses which she has
sustained. The financia] loss of
the valuable warehouso and its
contents is very great for a town
bf Johnston's size, but far greater
was the loss of that sterling citi
zen, David T. Ouzts. In a few
short mouths the debris of the
burned building can be cleared
away and a new one erected iu itt
Btead, bot the loss of this good
man is irreparable. His dem'se
i8;mourned not only by the town
of;vJoht.8ton but by the entirt
;??;'v\co?nty. He served his day and
generation well and bas now re
: ? ^.ceiye^ the Master's'"Well done.',
In Saluda couuty the Sessions
Court seems tobe almost sel feuV
taining. In other words, Saluda
has the good fortune to raise suffi
cent fines to almost pay the ex
pense of conducting court. The
fines collected from the recent
term aggregated $500. We would
like to know whether this is due
to tho great number of offenders
or to large fines. If it be the latter,
Edgefield would like to borrow the
"rabbit foot'* that Saluda works
on the prsidiug judges.
It is a significant fact that in all
of the counties that have voted on
I the liquor question the dispensa
ries have been defeated, not by
small bat by very large majorit?s;
and, furthermore, in the dozen or
more counties in which elections
are pending the sentiment is over
whelmingly against the dispensa
ry. This proves conclusively that
the prohibition movement has ac
quired such great momentum that
oo combination of forces will be
able to stop it as it sweeps county
after county before it. God speed
the day when the whiskey evil in
every form .will be removed from
the entire state.
Your life journey leads by a
way you know not. It is best you

Eojoy the beautiful landscapes ae

that at the end of your journey
?very good thing that has entered
into your aspiration, plan, and

world where hope is changed into
fruition, and the longing for per
fection shall find its realization.
Your highest dreams of spiritual
purity, exaltation, and blessed neps

you shall be then. What you pu';
