"In the year 1899 the side of my

was trying to sew up
the side of my foot,
but with no success.
When he found but

It is sixteen months ago since I began
using Cuticura Soap and Ointment for
my limb and foot. The first two
months the Cuticura .Remedies did not
seem to work, but I kept on using them
both. In two weeks afterwards I saw a
change in my limb. Then I began using
Cuticura Soap and Ointment often dur

months, when my limb was healed up
just the same as if I never had trouble.
"It is eight months now since I.
stopped using Cuticura Remedies, the
best on God's earth. I am working
at the present day, after five years
of suffering. The cost of Cuticura

Governor Heyward's Views on
the State Dispensary.
TRK BEST SOLUTION
Of the L;quor Q lastion If It Ii Properly
Conducted, Which He Tfiinks Can
be Done. By No Means Hope
less Because of Wrong
The roUowlog are the governor's
recommendations in full relative to
The only cloud whloh throws a
shadow over the state is the unsat
isfactory condition of the dispersiry.
Great d satisfaction has been mani
fested by the people in many quar
ters. It exists, I believe, because of
loss of confidence resulting from abui
es In connection with its operation.
No one can deny that the present at
mosphere surrounding the dispensary
is a grave reflection upon South Caro
lina, for it is a state institution, and
any odium which attaches to its oper
ation necessarily attaches to the
state. Since your last session a large
number of counties have voted out
dispensaries, but I must sa> that the
vote abolishing them I take to be a
rebuke to the-mode of operation rath
er than a repudiation of the system
In my last annual message, when
considering the needs of the dispensa
ry, I said: "lam convinced if this
system can be properly regulated, it
will be one of the best solutions of
the liquor question. If not properly
managed and controlled, its usefulness
will be at an end."
Despite the events of the past year
and the revelations whloh have at
tended the investigations of your cm
mitten, I am by no means hopeless, I
still believe that the dispensary sys
tem has many strong points and ad
mirable features whion commend It,
\ I but In saying this I am by-no means
blinded to its imperfections.
It is imperative for the honor of the
^ state that existing conditions should
) be immediately remedied, either by
k radical changes in the laws trovero
t Ing the dispensary or b> the adoption
l of & different system for the regula
j tion of the liquor question. The de
I calls of this situation are so well
> known throughout every county in
) tha state that I feel no extended dls
) cussion is necessary here. It is incum
bent upon your body to give this mat
I ter your most careful and serious con
' slderation. You are chosen by the
I people to make their laws, and in
' such a crises as this they will be sat
* isfied only with direct and speciilo ac
tion on your pare.
During the year that has passed
since your last session I have given
* this question my earnest considera
tion, hoping to devise some certain
> remedies for the evils complained of,
1 but have been impressed with no bet
? ter solution than was included In the
1 recommendations I made to you last
year. In order that my views may
be clearly understood, I shall call to
I your attention to such extracts from
my last message as I deem necessary
for this purpose. I herewith submit
for your consideration the following
extracts upon this, subject with one
clange, namely: the abolition oi
county boards of control. These are
again recommended to vou as embody
ing the ohanges which I think will
best serve the proper regulation of
the dispensary system.
"The state ommissioner should, In
I my judgment, be the cinaer whose
duty It 8h(u'.d be to purchase all
supplies for the dispensary. He should
be required to make contracts, not
for any specified amount of liquor,
but for such supplies as may be aotu
I ally required, such requirements to
be determined by the commissioner."
"Each contract made by the com
missioner should require the firm
I contracted with to guarantee the sale
of such goods as may be ordered and
I shipped to the state dispensary, said
guarantee to be entered as a part of
the bond. All advertisements f ir bulk
[goods should be placed strictly
and absolutely upon a competitive
basis, hi letting it be distinctly under
stood that the lowest responsible bid
der shall be awarded the contrac j. It
1 should further be the duty of the com
missioner to make each year, quarter
ly reports t) the state board or direc
tors, showing the amounts contracted
for the previous quarter, including
the brands and prices, and the names
of parties from whom goods are pur
chased, which report the state bjard
of Directors shall have published In at
least two daily newspapers of the
"The board should be rf quired to
meet each week at their cilice in the
state dispensary, to remain in session
as lonn as may be necessary for the
transaction of their busine s. Trie
general supervision and management
Of'all county dispensaries should be
in their charge and they should be
'specifically charged with the duty of
seeing that all restrictions governing
the various dispensaries should be
strictly enforced. These are responsi
ble and arduous duties for which the
members of this board should receive
salary of not less than $1,500 per
annum each, and should be reqitred
to file a bond of not less than 810,

After, nature r? flection I am con
strainei to recommend that the coun
ty board of control be abolished, .and
the dispensers appointed by the state
board of direotcrs upon the recomda
tion oi the legislative delegations or
the various counties.
It-should never be the policy of *he
state to force dispensaries upon coun
ties desiring prohibition,, nor to main
tain them when it is the wish of the
major!ty-of the people to suostltute
prohibition in their stead.
L glslation should be enacted at
this sessioa to free the system from
the abuses which have crept in, to
emphasize its restrictive features, and
to ensure proper comolianee with the
strict letter of the law. This matter
will certainly be brought to your at
tention at this session of your body.
I sine rely trust that you will give
it your most careful consideration,
and that you will, with a realization
of - your responsibilities make a fear
less and determined effort to ertc
such ohanges as will at least relieve
our state of the reproach which cer
tain features of the dispensary system
have cast upon us. I need not assure
you that in the discharge of this duty
I am ieady and willing to aid you in
every way that lies in my power.
The enfoc:mentof prohibition in
counties whioh have voted out dispen
sarles presents a serious problem. The
present law, as I construe it, makes it
the duty of the governor, whenever he
is satisfied that there are violations of
law in such counties, to appoint con
stables; these' constables tc be paid
from the special tax levied for that
purpose. During the past year I have
been confronted with many difficulties
because of local conditions and di
! verse public sentiment, but have en
i deavored to do what I considered my
My experience in the enforcement
i of this law has convinced me that
certain changes are necessary for the
mutual Interests of all concerned.
While I believe that special officers
are necessary to prevent violations,
and that such officers should be paid
by the counties, I also think that
- these officers should be selected bv lo
cal authorities and be under their di
rection and control. *
I, therefore, recommend that in fu
) ture this course be adopted, and trust
i you will so amend the law. The law,
as It now stands, will give rise to se
rious complications, and these should
i be avoided as much as possible.
Granite City III., Haa To Many Old
"God give us men!" cried Poet
1 Holland in lofty vein; but what Gran
ite Oity wants is women.
In this flourishing Illinois town
which had a population of 6,700 ac
cording to the census of 1900, and
which now claims 10,000, there are
ten men to each woman.
The majority of these men are
baohelors?particularly the business
and professional men?and as a con
st quence more than half of the hous
es in Granite Olty are rcomlog and
boarding houses. x
While there has been no formal
movement to induce an iDfiuz of wo
men the marriageable men of the
town would be muoh ooliged, to 'say
the lea it, if deslrxble members of the
f?r sex would piace themselves with
in reaching distance.
The young bachelors of the town
are so busy making money?and there
is hardly a one of them who does not
rake in from 85 to 810 a day?that
they have no time to go courting at a
distance; yet they would prove theoi
selvei the marryingest lot of men in
the country if they only had aohance.
Over at Alton there is Mayor Beall,
the friend of B Jose reit, wno is pr lach
