Dr. Joseph G. Gamp Coming to
Several years ago Dr. Josepn
Camp spoke in the Edgetield opera
house under the Lyceum auspices.
It wa? a very inclement night, and
there was but a handful of people in
the opei a house. Those who heard
Dr. Camp were so impressed with
his eloquence and scholarship that
they wished, some of them, many
times, that somewhere, it would be
their good pleasure to hear him
Dr. Camp bas been employed by
the State W. C. T. U. as one of the
campaign speakers for South Caro
lina al considerable expense to the
organization, and he will touch a
few peints in our county as he en
ters from Augusta.
He will ? make an address at
Clark's Hill on the 1st of September
at the Woman's Missionary Union.
On Friday night, the 3rd, Dr.
Camp will speak ai Parksville, and
we hope the people of the section
will not fail to hear him, and give
him a good and appreciative audi
ence. Dr. Camp goes from Parks
ville to Allendale, where he will
make two Sunday addresses at the
State W. C. T. U. convention.
He will speak at the W. M. IL,
of Ridge association, on the after
noon of the 8th, and at Trenton the
Oh the 9th the W. C. T. U. of
Batesbnrg expect to bold a very en
thusiastic prohibition rally with
music of children, poster parade and
brass band, and Dr. Camp will
make the address on this occasion.
He will address an audience at
Saluda on the lOtb, and at Aiken
on Sunday evening, the 12th.
The following are some of the
testimonials of Dr. Camp:
Dr. J. B. Hawthorne, one of the
South's foremost pulpit o ru tors, said:
"I have heard Joseph 6. Camp
when his wonderful eloquence al
most hypnotized me."
William D. Upshaw, editor of
the Golden Age, says: "For rich,
radiant, ringing eloquence, I have
rarely, if ever, heard the equal of
Hon. Joseph G. Camp; and he has
a golden heart as the dynamo of his
In forty towns in Florida Hon.
Joseph G. Camp, Georgia's great
prohibition orator, did superb work,
winning the people .often where
other speakers had failed. I can
hardly find words strong enough to
voice our appreciation.-Mis? Min
nie Neal, President Fla. W. C. T. U.
Hon. Clark Howell, editor At
lanta Constitution says: "I regard
Joseph G. Camp the most finished
orator in Georgia to-day."
Woman's Missionary Union.
In another cohuna will be found
the program of the annual Wo
man's Missionary Union which
meets at Clark s Hill on the 31st of
August and 1st of September. The
participants in this program are for
the most part, well known to all the
women of our association, but there
are two of whom special mention
must be made. On the evening pro
gram of August 31, ?i very great
opportunity will be ours of hearing
Dr. Pendleton Jones of Edgefield
preach a missionary sermon. Dr.
Jones loves this subject, and will
charm every one who listens, so we
hope that everyone who can possi
bly do so will arrange before leav
ing home, to stay for both days in
order to hear Dr. Jones on the first
On the mecond afternoon. Dr. Jo
seph G. Camp of Atlanta will make
an address on prohibition, "South
Carolina divorced and redeemed
from liquor." For this occasion, ar
rangements will be made for an
open air meeting, beginning prompt
ly at 3 o'clock, so that everybody
can stay and hear the address, and
reach home if necessary before

testimonials, and is engaged con
tinuously on Chautauqua* and with 1
the lyceums, coming directly frcmr

Over $700,000,000 is spent an
nually in the United States for to?
bacco. This is more than any other
nation in the world consumes and
ranks, close up to other notable in
temperance performances of the
American public. Previous to the
discovery of America tobacco was
unknown and it is altogether doubt
ful if any industry in all the world's
history has made such marvelous
progress as that gained by the to
To add further to the situation
figures indicate that the use of nico
tine-making products as on the in
crease, despite the fact that it may
be quite rightly termed a luxury.
Unless widespread attacks are made
on its use the weed bids fair to
usurp liquors in point of expend?
ture, especially in view of the tact
that prohibition is being so persist
ently pushed to the forefront.
The figures for the past year show
that Americans, spent ?446,000,000
for cigars, 873,000,000 for cigar
etts, ?157.000,000 for smoking and
?hewing tobacco, and ?24,000,000
It is reported authentically that
five times the quantity of cigarettes
is used in the United States now
as there was ten years ago, and
the increase in domestic manufac
tured cigaretteslalmost supplied the
entire increase, the percentage of
increase in a decade being 450 per
cent. Chewing tobacco is just about
holding its own, but cigars continue
to show a rapid increase, but, of
course, not so great as that of cig
In the South Atlantic states the
increase in growiug tobacco has
bsen quite notable during the past
two or three yean? and had not cot
ton advanced to such a high figure
some ten to fifteen years ago there
is no doubt but that Georgia and
Florida would ?ave been quite large
growers. Under present conditions
Georgia especially is expected to
greatly increase tobacco acreage.
