Dispensary Petitions Given to County
The petitions asking fur an election
on tlio dispensary question were p|aced
in the hands of County Supervisor S.
O. Jackson .Saturday. The committee,
to whom thc watter was referred, had
the lists ot petitioners thoroughly
purged to ascertain the real number
of ?ona tide registered voters- signing
and thus to settle this phase of the
issue in the very beginning. Consid
erably more than the necessary num
ber of qualified voters asked for aa
election, and the county supervisor is
fully satisfied on this point.
A generel understanding was reach
ed sometime afro that the dispensary
election would be ordered for the same
day that the election to fill the vacancy
in the legislature takes place, and this
will be dono. When the speaker of
the House-of Representatives formally
orders the legislative election, the
comity supervisor will order the dis
pensary election for the same date.
The result of the election in Ander
son County on the dispensary issue is
a foregone conclusion. The dispen
sary will be voted out. The large
majorities against the dispensary in
other counties strengthen the move
ment against the "great moral institu
tion" as the tight proceeds.
The public sales for October attract
ed a good crowd of interested people

member ot' the First Presbyterian
Church. s v
Refined, cultured, sympathetic, she
won the boni ta of nil those who knew
her, for she was ever ready to lend n
helping hand to the poor and afflicted
and speaking a comforting word tb

A Destructive Fire.
Fire waa discovered early Monday
morning on the second iioor of the
building occupied by the Acme Drug
Company, and conxidcrable damage
was done before the Haines were ex
tinguished. All the adjoiniug proper
ty waa more or less damaged, and it
was only by heroic work that thu fire
department prevented u serioua tea
tin ti ra ti on.
The fire originated from some un
known cause in an unueed room up
stairs just in the rear of the room
occupied by Mrs. Daisy Deane na an
art studio. The upper story of the
building, which is owned by H. C.
Townsend, was badly damaged by the
flames. His loss is estimated at about
$1,200. and is covered by insurance.
Mrs. Deane's loss will be about $500
with no inenrance. Mr. Snipes, who
haa a photograph gallery in the rear
nf thc building, estimates bia loss at
$250, with no insurance. The Savoy
Cafe on the first floor waa a heavy
Bufferer. Tho loss will approximate
$1,000, which is partly covered by in
surance. The offices of the Anderson
Oil and Phosphate company were near
by, bot the papers and records were
saved without considerable damage re
The Acme Drug Comnany was the
principal sufferer. The Targe stock of
gooda was injured by the flood of wa
ter that poured in from above. The
company a loss cannot be accurately
estimated /or several days, bnt the
manager, Mr. Ligon, thinks the '."?es
will reach nearly two-thirds the value
of the stock of goods. The nt o ck or?
hand exceeded $40,000, upon which
there waa $81,000 insurance.
The losaeb cannot bo accurately as
certained until they are adjusted by
the insurance companies. The figures
given above are estimates by the par
ties who Butlered from the fire.
