Mr. Dodson Warns Against Uso of
Treacherous, Dangerous Calomel.
Calomel salivates! H's mercury.
Calomel acts like dynamite on a slug
gish liver. When calomel comics into
contact with sour bile it crashes into
it .causing cramping and nausea.
If you feel bilious, headachy, con
stipated and all knocked out, just go
to your druggist and get a bottle of
Dodson's Liver Tono for a few cents,
which is a harmless vegetable sub
stituto for dangerous calomel. Take
a spoonful, and if it doesn't start
your liver and straighten you up bet
tor and quicker than nasty calomel,
and without making you sick, you
just go back and got your money.
If you take calomel to-day you'll
bo sick and nnuseated to-morrow;
besides, it may salivato you, while if
you ta ko Dodson's Livor Tono you
will wake up feeling groat, full of
ambition and ready for work or play.
lt's harmless, plonsant and safe to
givo to children; they like it.-adv.

Alib. THE AMENDEMENTS PASSED.
Amendment Providing for Chungo ot
Fiscal Year Lixl the List;
Columbia, Nov. 10-Every amend
ment to the Constitution as put be
fore tho people in the general elec
tion of Nov. 2 passod with a safe
margin, judging by tho returns from
38 counties received by the Stat'
Board of Canvassers. Five amend
ments applied to the Stole as a whole
and 2S to local communities or dis
Probably the most Important of
the 33 provisions to change tho con
stitution were the change of the fis
cal yenr and the change allowing tho
Legislature to pass local or special i
laws regulating the compensation of <
county ollicials. Another important <
amendment that has apparently pass- ?
ed was tho one empowering county 1
authorities to assess abutting pro;)- '.
erty for permanent improvements ot <
Returns from 38 of the 4G conn- i
ties have been received by tho State !
Board of Canvassers, but these have
not been tabulated yet. The board i
will meet at a futuro date and de
clare the results. The vote on tho
constitutional amendments was ex
tremely light, being considerably off i
from the State and county officers. I
Tho change of the fiscal yoar' led <
all the amendments in the 38 coun
ties reporting, receiving 8.501 votes
for and 3,305 against. Outstanding
ballots will not chango tho results, as
all the larger counties are In. This
change is causing some speculation
among those who follow the State
government closely. The llscal year
will now run from July 1 to June 3 0
instead of from January 1 to Decem
ber 31. Whether or not the General
Assembly will appropriate for 1S
months rather than 12 at its next
meetiiiK is being generally talked,
and this will cause somewhat of a
stir, due to the possibilities of a
much higher tax levy for the year
and a half. The budget commission ,
is gradually preparing its recommen
dations to the General Assembly, and
it is not taking into consideration
this change, it was said yesterday.
That thc chango has been made it
seems assured, although the official
tabulation has not yet been cast up.
Can Regulate Pay. j
The next State-wide amendment i
that has boen passed is also causing
some! Interest. It provides thal the '
Oeno'al Assembly can onad local or
speclru legislation ai to the compon
Mattet ti cou ?i* > officers', Tho t?noti'd
'uem st;s to, strike out oub-SeHlpn ]
10 oi ?u, 1 of Article '? ot Ibo con
stitution. Article 3 says: "The Gen
eral Assembly of this State shall not
enact local or special laws concern
ing any of the following subjects or
for any of the following purposes--"
Sub-section 10 says: "To lix the
amount or manner of compensation
to be paid to any county officer, ex
cept that the laws may be so made
as to grade the compensation in pro
portion to population and necessary
service required." The amendment
was lo strike out this sub-section so
that the General Assembly could en
act such legislation, and the amend
ment bas carried. The vote in tho 38
counties was 7,875 for and 5,200
The vote on the amendment to al
low county authorities to assess abut
ting property for permanent Improve
ments to highways was 7,1*7 8 for and
Two other State-wide amendments
changing the constituaion so a? to
add a provision to the section re
lating to waterworks and plants for
furnishing lights so as to include
Ice manufacturing plants, and also
to empower cities and towns to ac
quire nnd operate leo plants, were
also voted on favorably by the peo
ple of the State.
QFlvo Counties Against.
Five counties out of the 38 voted
against the amendments, and nota
bly among tho live was Charleston
on tho change relating to tho com
pensation of county officers. Charles
ton voted 318 for this amendment
and 2,323' against. On tho amend
ment as to tho assessing of abulting
property this county changed and
voted 2,549 for and only I 10 against.
Charleston also voted favorably on
the liscnl year change, the total be
ing 2,510 for and 110 against.
The returns from Leo county indi
cate that only two amendments were
voted on, ono being as to Iho com
pensation of county officers, which
received 18 for and 281 against.
Hampton and Florente counties
voted against tho amendments from

tution, voting "No" on all provis
ions of State-wide interest.
