We see that th-e mayor of one of
the towns in South Carolina has fined
a citizen for refusing to be vaccinated.
The circuit judge has endorsed, ap
proved or affirmed the mayor's de
cree to take from the citizen his mon

with the requirements of a cruel, un
just and unwarranted usurpation of
Smallpox is a preventable disease
which no one need have. if he does
not wish to have it.
In the army, v:here a different con
dition must govern. it is right to ex
ercise the despotic power over enlist
ed men. But we can conceive of no
greater injustice to the citizen than
to require him to be vaccinated. In
the first place, the vaccination pre
vents the citizen from the pleasure of
having the desired disease, and then
that other citizen who is looking for
the disease is deprived of the oppor
tunity to get it.
'We are getting to be too "compul
sorv" in this country. "Compulsory
education." "compulsory vaccina
tion," "compulsory payment of rail
road fare," "compulsory abstinence
from liquor," and "compulsory pay
ment of debts" is taking away nearly
all of the citizens rights. Whither
are de drifting?
The hog in his fever producing stye
is about the freest thing of which we
have any knowledge. He may kill
whole families without let or hin

except the physician and the under

build a monument to the hog.-Abbc

The thing is getting serious. sure

about it? Vhy here in Newberry we
have even driven the hog out of town.
We do not permit a citizen of the
town to keep and maintain a hog un
less he has a sufficient area of ground
to permit the hog from being a nui

eighth drcuit, which was created by
the last legislature, and in which is
New'berry, will take place next Tues
day. There are only two candidates,
Hon. Robt. A. Cooper, of Laurens,
and Col. 0. L. Schumpert, of New
berry. They are both good men and
either one will make a good prosecut
ing officer. Col. Schumpert served as
solicitor some years ago and made a
reputation as one of the ablest pro
secuting attorneys the state ever had.
He is a Confederate veteran and has
always proved true to every
trust. Newberry should turn
out next Tuesday and give
h~aim a large vote. Let every

Prosperity ladies, "wonders why the
men can't have somet-hing nice like
this." No doubt the men dou;ld have
something nice, if they would, but it
is a little surprising that as gallant
gentleman as our Prosperity corres
pondent wonders why the men can't
have something just as nice 'as the
Literary Sorosis. For the informa

we will state that it is because they,
