KEV. C. WARDLAW ON THE DISPENSARY.
appeals to Citizens to do Their Duty and
Avoid Responsibility Seneca'? Experience.
Tuesday, October 24, is the day
on which every lover o? home, and
humanity, and purity is expected to
do his duty. Thc question has been
asked thc qualified electors of 'the
county, What will you do with the
dispensary ? The voter is given thc
opportunity to put himself on the
side of peace and order and sobriety,
and to wash hit? hands and con
science of the responsibility for tho
cri tue and suffering that may come
from the salo of liquor in the dis
pensarle <, should they bo continued.
And I appeal to ; nd urge each voter
bravely to do his duty. Help your
fallen brother to rise. Bear another's
burden by putting out of tho wt;y
temptation. Would Jesus vote for the
dispensary? If you think Ile would
not, then you, who arc His, dare not.
It is no sufficient excuse to vote for
the dispensary, saying that prohibi
tory laws aro violated. Has not the
dispensary law been the most vio
lated law of the State during thc
last decade, from the highest official
down to thc poorest citizen ? If one
opposes prohibition because it is
violated, surely the more should the
dispensary be Opposed Oil the same
ground. No one is foolish enough
to claim that voting tin- dispensaries
out will stop entirely tho drink habit.
Hut no fair minded man eau doubt
that it will greatly deoreaSe drinking.
In Seneca, during thc past three
weeks, with the local dispensary
closed, inti the Pendleton and Wal
halla dispensaries open on either side
of our town, there bas not been
more than one-tenth of the drinking
in Seneca. This is the opinion of the
Intendant of the town, the chief of
police and many citizens. During
these three weeks, so far as is known
to the writer, there has not been :i
drunken white man on the streets,
and only about three colored men,
two id' whom got the whiskey nt
VVulhallaJ^and one nt Pendleton.
Those who,have I'/.dod at Seneca
recently know that the closing of the
disponsnry has been n three weeks of
blessing to many, and bas given to
the town during that tune peace and
order ami ?[sobriety. Will you not
help us to continue this condition by
voting the dispensaries out?
Those who vote for the dispensary
are responsible for the crime and suf
fering that will result from its con- |
tinuanoe, should it be continued.
You would not commit murder, you
would not kill your lather, you would
not break your wife's heart, you
would not ourse God and then com
mit suicide ; but from the following
learn a lesson :
There is an old legend of a man
who sold his soul to Satan. The
conditions were : For a certain num
ber of years this man was lo have all
his desires gratified, at tito expira
tion of which his soul was forfeited.
When the time agreed upon had
expired, ibis man was unwilling to
fulfill his part of the contract, and
asked Satan Upon what terms he
might 1)0 released. The reply was:
"If you will curse God I will re
lease you."
...Yo," said tho mau, "I cannot
Curso tho lleing w hose nature is love.
Give me something less fearfully
wicked."
"Then kill your father," replied
Satan, "and you go free."
"No," answered tho tuan, "that is
too horriblo to think of, I will not
commit such a crime. Are there no
other conditions ?"
"One more," said tho tempter,
"You must get drunk."
"That is a very easy thing to do,"
thc man answered, "and I accept
your proposition. I cannot kili my
father, I will tot curse my God, but
I oan get drunk, and when I become
gober all will he well."
Accordingly he got drunk, and
when in this condition he happened
to meet bia father, who upbraided
him, which HO excited the ire of the
drunken and half crazed man, that
he alcw his father, cursed his God,
then fe'! down dead, aud Satan bad
him without fail.
Only a legend, this particular case,
bul how true to the facts regarding
the liquor curse. As the friend of
the friendless, aud the helper of
those who cannot help themselves, I
am sincerely,
C. Wardlaw.

"Pal" Crowe Caught in Montana.
Butte, Montana, October 6-Pat
Crowe, wanted by the Omaha police
for the kidnaping of the son of mil
lionaire packer Edward Cudahy in
1900, was arrested in this city lat??
last night. Crowe's identification
has been made complete through
photographs sent to the authorities
by thc Omaha officers. Crowe ac
knowledged he was tho fugitive, be
coming alarmed when he feared the
authorities were going to shoot him.
Captain of Police W. F. McGrat
and Detective Mcinerny made tho
arrest, placing the muzzles of their
revolvers against his stomach as he
emerged from a saloon in the tender
loin section of the city. Crowe de
clared tho would return to Omaha
without requisition papers.
He cursed bitterly at his arrest,
expressing chagrin at his apprehen
sion in a town the size of Hutte,
when he, as be said, had traveled the
world over and evaded capturo in all
thc largo cities. Crowo has two
brothers in Montana, one living at
Butte and the other at Great Falls.1
A friend of Crowe's informed the
local police of Crowe's presence in!
the city, and Ids arrest followed
After photographs of the fugitive had
been secured from Omaha,
Deafness Cannot bc Cured
by local Applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of tho ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused hy an inllamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the eusta
chian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is tho result, and unless thc
inflammation can he taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will bc destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused hy catarrh,
which is nothing hut an inllamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that catipot bo cured by Hall's Catarrh

Dirty Postal Card Gels Him in Trouble.
Spartanburg, October f>.-Alt in
teresting case was thc lirst one to be
Investigated by the newly commis*
stoned United States Commissioner,
I. A. Phifer. It was the trial of a
young white man named George
McDowell, whose father is a promi
nent fanner of the county. McDow ell
was charged with sending a post
card through the mails to the daugh
ter of one of thu county's leading
oitizens, the postal car?! bore an en-,
graving of a giddy looking young
woman in abbreviated attire with
her skirts set to the wind, and in
another corner the picture of a man
with a spyfglasa ogling.
The testimony adduced seemed
sufficient to convince tho commis,
sioner that McDowell was guilty and
he was bound over to the next term
of United States Court in Greenville,
his father going on his bond. Post?
office Inspector Pulsifer, who worked
up the ease, was the prosecutor,
while ll. K. Carson appeared for the
defendant. The specific act Mc
Dowell violated wax Section 3898 of
the United States revised statutes.

Liquor ?nd Int Stat? tl Main?.
The liquor men, who never tire of
assort mg that there is more liquor
drank where there is prohibition
than where there is license, have
never ceased to labor for the over
throw of prohibition in Maine. They
succeeded in getting the question
submitted again by the Legislature
and at the last election they r ?re
confident thai prohibition would be
voted out. When lo! prohibition
was sustained by almost a unauimous
vote. This so stimulated the Legis
lature that a new bill, kuown as the
Sturgis bill, was quiokly adopted and
the Governor thereby given full
power to appoint a State "enforce
ment" commission, tho members of
which are clothed with all the rights
of sheriff and executive officers, so
far as the prohibitory law is con
cerned, and who aro authorized to
appoint an unlimited number of
deputies throughout the State to au
sist them.
This bas already gone into effect
and Maino has entered upon a new
period of law enforcement under the
provisions of the new Sturgis law.
Car-loads and boat-loads of poorly
disguised liquor of all sorts nearly
swamped express and freight traflio
lo Boston when it became known I
that the law had. really gone into
effoot. Portland and Bangor are
about the "dryest" points in the
whole State, despite the Anti Prohi
bition officers. These aro two cities
where heretofore the law had been j
winked at by the Republican of?i- i
ci?is who failed to enforce the law,1
merely arresting and fining each
liquor dealer once a year and allow
ing them thereafter to proceed with 1
their business for another year. This
is what enabled liquor men to crow,
"Prohibition don't prohibit," and,
"Prohibition in Maine is a failure."
Now a different chord is struck.

sweeping restrictions on saloons,
which were recently voted back alter'

punishment and forfeiture of license
is fixed for any violation of these
ordinances, The majority of the
'council is composed of "dry" tuen,
and the "wets" claim the wishes of
I tho people as expressed at the polls
