.'SHARK WELL BEFORE TAKING."
A story comes to us from Seneca, j
.in round-about and devious ways, of
a recent occurrence In our sister
town that reminds us of the oft-seen
admonition on tho labols of modi
cine bottles, "Shake well before tak
Tho story comos to us that, only
recently, a traveler entered a certain ,
restaurant in Seneca, and deposited
ott the floor by the counter a grip or
satchel, with the request that he be,
permitted to leave tho grip there un- j
til his train was ready to leave. The
request was granted by a young man
in charge-and rightly so, for we ;
understand that the travoler was an !
occasional patron of the eating estab
lishment. But later, lt ls said, a lady
who had every right of proprietor
ship to be there, came in, and pick
ing up the grip, proceeded to "shako
well before taking."
There was no rattle to the sound
that came from the grip, but there
was a sound as of water-or some
thing-inside of a hottle-or some
thing-Inside the grip. Curiosity,
....agled with something akin to a
righteous wrath, overcame the lady,
.and tho grip being not locked, lt was
opened. And behold! a full half gal
lon of dim light-moonshine!
In true Carrie Nation style-but
with no Hare of trumpets or sound
of hammers and hatchets-the dim
light was "shed" upon tho sidewalk,
und all within the grip thereafter was
total darkness, which mingled with
the wearing apparel of the travoler,
making no compaint, following tho
illustrious example of the traveler
who owned tho grip.
So tho story goes. Wo know noth
ing of it "first hand."
'But there were no Inquiries as to
what had become of tho liquor. Not
a word was said, not an inquiry even
hinted at. Why? Had some article
of wearing apparel been missing from
the grip, inquiry would have been
made, and probably a suit would
have been entered against the said
restaurant or Its proprietor.
But "thore's a reason," as a prom
inont manufacturer so often tells us.
There is no legal liquor in South
Carolina to-day. The man who sells
it violates tho law, tho man who buys
it assists in consummating a law vio
lation, the man who transports it is
;a law violator, and tho man who
drinks it is-of course this is only
our porsonal opinion and In no way
binding on anybody else to either ac
. cept or endorse - a poor, doludcd
And that's tho "reason." The per
son who transports liquor can't raise
a howl without incriminating him
self and stamping himself openly as
n law violator, and subjecting him
self to penalty of the laws "in such
cases made and provided."
Had the lady in question taken tho
liquor and put it away "for future
reference" of some kind she, too
would have been amenable to the law
Tor "unlawfully storing and having
in possession" that which the law
very plainly says shall not bo pos
sessed by, or transported, or stored
away, sold, given away, or in fact
it might lie so construed, perhaps -
handled |tl any way whatsoever.
Liquor is a mighty good thing lc
heep ono's hands off of. lt defile;
nine out of ten who have anything tc
do with lt. in any way, save and ex
cept, as In the case of the good lad)
who handled the liquor above refer
red to, when li is destroyed and ron
Tho only way to bc sure that tin
.damning influence of liquor will no
touch you is to follow the old adage
"Touch not, taste not, handle not.'
Tho moment ono goos beyond tba
Injunction one is tampering w!tl
trouble, tempting fate and handliiij
tho most damning and damnabl
weapon devised by the dovil as a cer
lain means of extinguishing evor
spark of humanity from the human
"Touch not, taste not, handle not,"
except to destroy, as our good lady
friend is said to have done. We glory
in her determination, her "spunk"
and her act.

Farming Under Boil Weevil
Tho Mexican Boll Weevil has
invaded our County and has estab
lished a homo for himself on nearly
o very furm,whoro, if not destroyed,
ho will pass tho winter safely, anti
will l>o ready carly next spring to
multiply and destroy all tho young
cotton squares ns fast ns they aro
grown. If wo maintain our credit
and present prosperity, conditions
demand that wo chango our present
farming methods at once.
A careful study of tho habits of
tho Boll Weevil will show that ho
moves onco a year, and that is in
August. Now, If wo will cloan up
our fields early this fall by chop
ping and turning under all cotton
stalks and burning off all terraces,
ditch banks and other places whore
tho Weevil has hibernate! for tho
winter, wo can kill tho Weevils out
nnd loavo our Bolds free from tito
pest, anti tlion, by tho uso of pro?
por farming methods, a good crop
of grown bolls can be produced
beforo tho Weevil commences hi?
annual movement in August.
As a safe program for farm big
noxt year to combat tho Weevil we
would suggest 20 acres to tho
plow, planted a? follows:
Six aeren to cotton, followed by
small grain In the. fall.
Six acres to corn, with velvet
benns and peas planted in corn.
Six acres to small grain-two
acres ead? to wheat, oats and rye.
Two acres to truck crops, con
sisting of Irish potatoes, syrup
cane, sweet potatoes, melons and
Rroparo tho ground woll, plant
early, using an early-maturing va
riety of cotton; fertilize liberally
anti cultivate Intensively.
