WEDNESDAY, OCT. 25, 1905.
Dr. W. H. Timmermaa's Edge
field friend?, and they are legion,
sympathize with hun deeply iu
the very heavy loss .'which he has
sustained through the embezzle
ment of state bonds, amounting to
$10,000, by a- trusted clerk during
his administration as state treas
urer. The payment of sach a sum
will of necessity fall heavily upon
him, as it would upon any one
else,}et he will protect the State
agaiust the loss of a dollar. How
strange are the vicissitudes of for
tune ! Here is a man whose pri
vate life and -public career are
without spot or blemish-at whom
no one can cast a stone-and yet
he is made to suffer for the wrong
doing of another. This sturdy old
Romau who has been faithful and
true ro every trust must -now take
the hard-earned savings of a life
time ?.nd make-good the theft, of
a faithless clerk. Tis hard to
say with the immortal Pope : "One
truth ie clear. Whatever is, is
Stand By The Cotton Growers*
Association Instead of Sully.
We would caution the farmer^
not to follow after strange gods,
such as Sully, the Wall Street
speculator. Bettor by far stand
by the cotton growers' association
which had its origin in the south,
is composed of southern men,
chiefly cotton growerp, -and has
only one aim : the promotion
first, last and always-of the agri
cultural interests of the south.
The present prosperity of our peo
ple, in spite of tb.J short .".rop, is
due almost eutirely to the work of
It is true that Mr. Sully put
millions into the pockets of the
cotton producers two years ago.
That, however, was incidental. A.B
a manipulator or speculator he
was a "bull" and for a" time had
eyery thing going his way ; as a re
sult, the farmer?, as well as Mr.
Sully, were benefitted. But there
is no deny^pg the fact that he is a
reckless speculator and, like all
of his class,' is liable to change
his coat any day: Today he is a

Dispensary or Prohibition.
The following words by Rud
yard Kipling, the poet, ought to be
read with greatest interest by
every father in our country. We
are now on the eve of an election
which will decide whether we are
to have in our county a dispensa
ry or prohibition; whether we
shall allow whiskey sold according
to law, or whether we shall by a
vote of the people protect our
young men and young women from
this temptation which is now
dragging so many down to destruc

till he Baw that by his life he was
helping on the ruin of so many
others. In this way he became a
prohibitionist out and but. I be
-Hev? that no one who will weigh
the subject in the light of interest
in the morals of our young people
can do oise than cast a vote for
prohibition. Lets do what we can
and save our young people from
J. D. Chapman.
Kipling says: "The other sight
of the evening was a horror. The
little tragedy played itself out at
a neighboring table where two
very young women were sitting.
It did not strike me till far in the
eve tiing that the pimply young
reprobates were making the girls
drink. They gave them red wine
then white, and the voices rose
slightly with, the maidens' cheek
flushes. I watched, wishing to
stay, and the youth's drank till
their speech thickened and their
eyeballs grew watery. It was
sickening to see because I knew
what was going to happen. My
friend eyed the group and said:
. 'Maybe they're children of re
spectable people. I hardly think.
..though, they'd bo allowed out
without any better escort than
-these boys. Audyet the place is
a place where every one comos, as
you see> They may be Little Im
moralities-in which case they
would not be so hopelessly over

They may be-'
"Whatever they were thoy got
indubitably drunk-there in that
lovely hali, surrounded by tho
best of Buffalo society. One could
do nothing except invoke the judg
ment of heaven on the two boys,
themselves ha f sick with liquor.
At the close of the performance
the quietor maiden laughed va
cantly and protested she couldn't
keep her fret. The four linked
arms, aud staggering, flickered out
into the street-drunk, gentlemen
audladiep, a8 Da\ y's swine; drunk
as lords I They disappeared down
a side avenue, lut 1 could bear
their laughter long afterathey were
out of aight.
"And they were fill four children
of sixteen and seventeen. Then,
recanting previous opinions, I be
came a prohibitionist. Better it
is that man should go without his
beer in public places and content
himself with swearing at'the nar
row-mindedness of the majority;
better it is to poison the inside
with very vile temperance drinks,
and to buy lager furtively at
back doors, than bring temptation
to the lips of young fools such as
the four I had seen. I understood
now why "the preacher? rage
against drink. I have sail: There
is no harm in it. taken moderate
ly;" and yet my own demand for
beer helped directly to send these
two gir s reeling down the dark
street to-God alone knows where."
The foregoing .is a communica
tion clipped from the Anderson,
(S. C.,) Daily Mail and is apropos
to the situation in Edgefield coun
ty. If you believe, as Kipling did,
'-,hat your drinking helps directly
to send olhers to ruin, give it up
and help to remove the temptation
by voting put the dispensary.
