An illustration ol the Desolating and Destroy
lug Effects of Whiskey-Voting is Urged.
[Hy II. A. H. Gibsou.]
Kditors Courier: I would respectfully
ask tho privilege of a small Hpaoe in your
paper. Dispensary or m? dispensary
that ?H the qi.osti?n to ho settled hy tho
voters of Goonoo county on tho ?. uh day
of October, SO far as Oconee ls concerned.
Our lawmakers bave msdo it lawful to
KOII whiskey to the people, and then if a
mau got*) drunk on it, the uoxt thing is
to arrest, convict and punish him for gov
ting drunk. Tho principle is uo bettor
than putting a pistol in a man's hands
and then tolling him to go out and shoot
down his followman.
Hut for tho uso of whiskey tho Joueses
would never bavo heeii tried iii tho Court
of Sessions last wook foi killing Wall.
Whiskey was nt tho bottom of the whole
trouhle, hut while tho Joneses woro ac
quitted, tho old man Wall Hos silent in
his gravo, Lut boro let the voil fall on
that terrible transaction.
The father will lecture his son against
patronizing tho dispensary when ho has
voted to have it. I am a boliover in what
soever yo sow that shall yo also reap. If
you sow whiskey you aro just as ce.tain
to reap a crop of drunkards.
The dispensary is corrupting in more
ways than one. We havu to contend
against two of tho strongest tendencies
of human nature-avariciousness and
covetousness are arrayed on tho side of
the dispensary. It appeals lo the avarice
on the ground that tho profits go to tho
education of your children. That is
what its advocates toll you. Money
wrung from the mouths of many poor
ehild'on, who must go in rags while
your children aro goinc to school clad in
good comfortable clothiu.', and while
those poor children aro deprived of tho
benefit of tho schools hocausc they have
not decent clothing to go to school, and
why? Bei anse a drunken father has spent
Iiis moivy for whiskey which should bavo
hoon spout for food and clot hun: for his
wife and children. And that is not the
worst of it. Wives are made widows
and children aro made orphans. How
any Chrl thu) can make up his or her
mind to eut to educate their children
on money that is making widows and
orphans, is moro than I can understand,
and 1 am putting it as mild as I know
1 think tho moderate drinker is the
most daugorous factor in tho liquor
question. His example to the yOUtlg is
frightfully dangerous. Logic is certainly
with the total abstainer and his exanlple
ro-en forces the argument ten fold against
the use of liquor of any kind.
We need Christ's hell? in this matter
against the demon Oratrong drink that
is annually carrying men down to (
drunkard s craves and damning their
immortal souls in eternity. We must he ,
strong. but only in the strength of God ,
eau we prevail against this terrible evil. (
It is not the last drink that ruins a man, ?
il is the first drink that does the dread- ,
fol work. A tramp walked into a saloon i
and called for a "free drink." Ho ob- ,
tai ned the drink, and as ho started to eo
a young man present said, "Stop, make ?
us a speech." Ho stood up before them ,
with a crace and dignity that all his rags
and dirt could not obscuro.
"Gentlemen," he said, "I look to-night
at you and myself, and it seems to mo I
look upon tho picture of my lost man
hood. This bloated face was once as
young and handsome as yours. This
shambling figure onco walked as proudly
as yours, a man in tho world of mon. I
too once had a homo and friends and po
sition. I had a wife as hoautitul as an
artist's dream, and I dropped tho price
less pearl of her honor and respect in the
wino-cup. and, Cloopatra like, saw it dis
solve and qualTcd it down in tho hriny
draught. I had children as sweet and
lovely as thc Howers of spring, and saw
thom fade and dio under the blighting
curso of a drunken father. I had a homo
where love lit tho Hame upon tho altar
and ministered hoforo it, and I put out
the holy tire and darkness and desola
tion reigned in its stead. I had aspara
lions and ambitions that soared as high
as tho morning star and broke and
bruised their beautiful wines, aud af last
strangled them that I might hear their
cries m? more. To-day I am a husband
without a wife, a father without a child,
a tramp with no home to call his own, a
man m who: I every g.I impulse is
?lead. And all swallowed up in the
monist rom of drink."
What a picture of what was once, no
doubt, a bright and useful mau, l inned
hy strong di ink. Can any body read it
and not want to banish liquor from this
Wo are sometimes met with tho argu
ment that if tho dispensary be voted
then we will have thu blind tiger in its
place, but that need not be, and will not
so bo, if the local peace officers will do
their duty as the law requires them to do.
So every voter come to thc polls on tho
24th with his mind made up to voto out
thc groat "moral institution."
A Judicious Inquiry.
A well know n traveling man who visits
the drug trade says ho has often hoard
druggists inquire of customers who
asked for a couch medicine, whethor it
was wanted for a child or for an adult,
and if for a child they almost invari
ably recommend Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. The reason for this is that
they know there is no danger from it and
that it always cures. There is not the
least dancer in giving it, and for coughs,
colds and croup it is unsurpassed. For
