The msjor portion of the pres

We think it ia well that Mr. C.

Why should there be two stand

dispensary plan of selling liquor
is the most Democratic . solution
of the whiskey question, we cite
the North Augusta figures in the
recent Aiken county eleotion. Of
the 157 voters in North Augusta,
54 favor the dispensary and 103
oppos? it. In spite of this great
majority, two to one, a dispensary
has been saddled upon that com
munity. Is this not ruthlessly

Down, down, cotton has steadi
ly gone, and that, too, just before

usual. Should this not be sufficient
warning to farmers not to "over
do the thing5'' in the matter of
planting cotton? The southern
spinners have by agreement
closed down for sixty days, and it
is*said that at the expiration of
?hat time a further shut-down
inay be ordered. If farmers get
into trouble by making a record
breaking crop this year, they go
into it with their t-yes open. In
stead of being decoyed, sufficient
warning is being given.

The successful operation of pro

they were maintaining proper fish

organizing the committee went up
to the locks, and inspected the
dam and fish way, and found that
in their opinion, the present fish
way would not allow the passage
of fish up the river, and is not at
all satisfactory. Tho committee
also fonnd th.it the Savarnah

The Harm in a Glass of Eeer.
Formerly only the comparative
ly few, belonging to the wealthier
clasp of people us-d alcoholic
drinks as a beverage. There WAR H
naturally limitpd production. F.x
c"Paive use of such drinks began
with the art of distilling, which
marie it possible to produce strong
whiskey and similar drinks from
corn, rye and other graiu, in sn
inexpensive manner. With this
wide spread production of alcohol
ic drinks there has arisen a group
of physical and mental disorder*
that are becoming more and more
alarming in degree.
Th e average &lass of beer con
tains about six and twenty-five
one hundred'.hs ppr cpnt alcohol.
True this is a'v?ry small amount
but it is sufficient to create a
longing for morp.
First let ns cFetprmit'e whether
or not beer i? a fond. Fnod is any
substance which when taken into
.he body, (.reduces hpat or
strength. It is somptimes claimed
for beer that it has the special
advantage nf producing bodily
h^at. This is a mistakpn idea, for
m is plainly shown liv the. clini
cal t.bermom?tPr of thn physician,
bepr lo'vprs flip temperature of thp
body. The blood is flpnt tn thp
?kin bv this agpncv. This gives a
.cenca i jon of hpat. \YTP feel warmer
bul? wo are actually cio'er. The
innre hloofl there i*. at the surfac?
of the body the more quickly is
the temperature Inwprpd.
L"t ns now pndpjivor to trace
the pfTfc's of alcohol in thp hppr
on thp various organs of th? bodv.
Chronic catarrh of fue st.'m ich is
frequently duo tn he?r-drir.king.
In fi'Ct physicians agree- that 'he

Tl a substance which ta'ies it =

nly holds together in one compact
maps thn humernus liver eel's
that do thp work. This connective
tissue increases in piz?, thu-?
squeezing the liver cd If nut of
shape, and orpvenls their proper
action so*that they die ?'rom dis
ease. This condition causes a dis
ease known as cinho?is of the
Beer-drinking lppsens the abili
ty of the blood tn absorb oxygen,
thus making it poorer iii quality,
and less able to do thp great work
of nourishing the tissues.
Tbs blood vessels soon show
the effects of beer-drinking. On
t-he interior lining of the arteries
fatty mattpr slowly accumulates.
It entirely takes the place nf the
tough, elastic material of which
the blond vepsels should be com
poppd, and often they burst.
Alcohol over-stimulates tho
heart, causes the muscles to be
overworked, deprives the-heart of
a certain degree of rest, so uecps
sary to perfect health, and from
overaction develops a weakness i 12
the nerves that control the action
of the heart After somo years use,
beer deposits of fat occur he.
tween Jhe muscle filters of the
heart, thereby weakening them.
These weak muscles are unable to
exert the proper force uecessarv
to send the Mood to the various
parts of the body.
Beer does lasting injury to the
muscles. Deposits of fat take the
place of muscular fiber. Men en
dure morp hard labor, cold, etc.
when they never use beer. The
athlete who wishes to compete in
athletic contests is forbidden by
his trainer to taste any alcoholic
drink. Beside destroying the
strength of hie muscles, beor
drinking diminishes tho powei
cf endurance and precision.
Beer-drinking does great injury
to the lungs. It acts directly or.
the breathing center located at thf
base of the blain, thus diminish
ing the amount of air taken inte
the lungs. The walls of the tiny
air pacs become thickened anc
less elastic and the breathing ca
pacity of the lungs ie-slowly re
duced. There is always less pow
er to resist any lung diseas<
among beer drinkers. This limit?e
breathing power, or starvatior
soou takes away from the indi
vidual his power of endurance ant
decreas-'B his general bodily vigor
In the kidneys tbpre comps f
noticeable change. In tho bepr
drinker the kidneys are compf-llp(
to work beyond their powpr ir
s?paraiing the alcohol poison fron
the blood. The overwork of thi
kidneys may couse that mos
fearful nf maladipp, Bright'
disease! This inability of the kid
neys to remove the poison fron
the blood, must necessarily re-ac
upon the other organs'of the body
Dr. Formed sayp: "In chroni
alcoholics the kidneys are nft<-i
increased in size, showing tha
degenerative changwa hnvn taket
plac? in these organs." Beside
causing many dispases and 1'jP
arning th? general bodily vigor
beer-drinking diminishes thi
power nf the user to repiat the al
backs nf numerous diseas?p. Wi

Lf*t us now turn our a'tnntinr:
lo the mental effects of boar
drinking. More than balf the cases
of insanity iu Amer ca to-day
are 1 he.direct results of alcoholic
excP8ies. There is no form of in
sanity known io the eaprrtg tit to
day that can Dot bo c?ua%d by al
Beer-drinking may and often ?
does cause one of the most bid^ou*
forms of insauily, kucwn as
mai ia. The patient imagines that
he is wealthy, prominent and
p( 63^-fred of unlimited strength.
If one dare dis'urb th'*-se pleasant
thought he ie attacked by the
maniac.. And woe to the person
of inferior strength, for in thf^
battle with a madmau thiers is nc
appeal eitbpr to mercy or reason
Beer-drinking causes a form ol
insanity known as milancholja.
The patient is sad and depressed,
and often tries to commit suicide.
Another form of insanity that ip
sometimes caused by beer-drink
ing is known as- dipsomania. The
patient manifests at certain times"
an uncontrollable desire for al
coholic drinks. During these peri
ods be will murder if necessary
in order to gratify his desires. It
Delirium Tremens ie a tpmpo
rary form of insanity due alonp
to alcoholic excesses. Iii nearly
every caae ?ho patient has visions

cent of the patients .die.
No heer drinker thinks that he
will ever rave behind asvlum

but scientific experiments phovr

We have now arrived at the
most- important side of a man's
nature, his moral side. One of the
first signa of moral d?g?n?r?t iou
is the loss of will power. The wiP.
likelho mu?cl'p, is strengthened
by i xerc:se. . Today we refue to
eat focd th it. we do not need and.
to-morrow it is easier to repost the
ncf. Hut if to-day, we do anything
for the m^re gratification of our
appetites to-morrow il is harder
for u? to repipt the Barn? tempta
tion. If WM nevpr exerci!"* th** will
it difp. And with the In?? nf will
power then* goe-? the lops nf char
acter, for the will is the hasis of
habit, and habits determine char
acter. Success in life is assured to
the person having a strong, r^ody
and re.sojute ?iii. All his promis
i" will be kept, his duties dis
charged. Let illustrate the ad
vnn'tMge of having one's will os an
ally in the .fcernptatin is of lifd. A
gentleman had yielded to th" en
treaties ?f his friends and promis
ed never to drink alcoholic di inks
again. He faithfully kept his
pledg* for a number of weeks but
it si-em's that fa'e wap against
him. One day ho m H two of his
former friends upon the street
and was a?k'-d lo takoa drink. H*
refused- until one of the base
wretches shoved the bottle to his
ffice. .TW^gcen^ carried him back
to former'days when a? a drun
kard he reeled along the^street.
Snatching the bottle, he drained
its contents. They carried him
home, beastly druuk and that
night he died in a drunken stupor.
Why? BecausH through habit hic<
I will had become tis enemy rather
? than his ally.
j There is a very close connec
tion between tho body, the mind
. j and the s -ul. Anything that effects
on? pffects the ol her two. We have
j clearly sbo*fn that a degenerative
( change takes place in the body
