Little Beulah Lee Improving.
Everybody in Edgefield has been
greatly concerned for a week on ac
count of the extreme illness of little
Beulah Lee. From a merry, singing
little girl who attracted everyone
who saw her, she was prostrated by
illness. But even then the doctor said
she was the best little patient anyone
could possibly have. She had been
looking forward to seeing herself at
the moving picture baby show on Sat
urday night, but many of us feared
she would be changed to another land
of children by that time. With the
prayers of such good parents as she
has and the many others in our com
munity and the devoted work and at
tention of Dr. Tompkins and the
trained nurse and other helpers, she
is on the road to recovery.

How Enforced Prohibition
Will Help Our Country.
(Continued from Page Seven)
Beyond, because as long as he is deal
ing in whiskey he is committing a
great sin, and there is no chance, in
my mind, of his ever entering the
Kingdom of God, for he is worse than
the man who drinks it. He is making
drunkards and wrecking happy
homes, all for the sake of the al
Prohibition will help our bankers,
merchants and farmers in their bus
iness transactions. Ladies that are
clerking and bookkeeping in the
stores and banks will not be embar
rassed by drunkards. Bankers will
not be worried in making loans to
drunkards, for it is embarrassing to
turn down a good-hearted man that
cannot pay his debts on account of
drink. Clerks in dry goods and gro
cery stores will not be bored by the
drunkard, as they will have money to
pay for what they get. Merchants are
not bothered by their bookkeepers
and clerks getting their books tan
gled on account of being under the
influence of whiskey.
Our county officers will not Jan
bothered with the drunkard begging
for money to buy whiskey with. Pro-:
hibition wlil help the county officers
themselves, as they heretofore, have
been accustomed to drinking with
their friends. It will enable them to
keep their books and accounts
There has been a time when it was
dangerous for a lady to drive on a
public highway for fear that she
would meet up with some drunkard
on the road. It is different now as we
have prohibition. Without prohibi
tion it would almost be impossible to
travel the roads in automobiles, as
whiskey and gasoline will not mix.
The poor old horses and mules that
the drunkards used to drive could be
whipped and made to get back into
the road. The automobile refuses to
obey under the lash of the whip. Be
fore prohibition, nine out of ten
wrecks in automobiles were caused
by whiskey. Prohibition will help the
railroad men, because there are so
many lives that are dependent on
There are a great many people
who claim that they can get all the
whiskey they want but we are proud
that a great majority of the men of
Edgefield county are too proud to
slip around to a bootlegger to get
Prohibition brings about energy
and thrift, and helps to bring out the
qualities of man.
There was an old Irishman who
liked rum, and he used to call it the
DeviPs fire water, which name, I
think, is very appropriate. I think it
was intended for the devil and not
for the men of Edgefield county.
We have as good blood in the veins
of the men of our county as there is
ir? the world, high-toned, big-hearted
Anyone who wants to see, can see
that prohibition has already helped
our county a great deal. One hardly
ever sees a drunken man now. Why
should not the men of Edgefield
county be. as far from drink as the
ladies are? Prohibition will help
them to be.
Prohibition for me once and al
ways. Let us all strive to enforce pro
hibition and we will always have it.
