The Swimming Pool.
The, much-talked-of bathing and
-swimming pool is a great success,
and is affording daily pleasure to
its patrons. The proprietors. Messrs.
K. M. Jones and H. WV. Dominick,
are making every effort to furnish a
thoroug'hly satisfactory place of
-amusement and recreation, and all
-who have tasted the joys of a cool
dip in the refreshing waters are en
thusiastic. Steps lead down into the
water on the shallow side of the pool,
and the slope is very gradual, so that
there is absolutely no danger even for
children who know nothing of swim
ming. in fact, the pool has been so
constructed as to make it especially
adapted to teaching the uninitiated
how to~ swim. However, those who
already have acquired the art are giv
en ample room and depth for its
practice. Commodious bath houses
have been? erected, and bathing suits
can be rented or bought outright. One
of the proprietors is on hand every
evening at 6 o'clock, and the place

UPRISING OF THE PEOPLE.
The Dispensary Is Doomed In New
berry County-Getting Ready to
Vote it Out.
e To the Editor of The Herald and
1 News: In your issue of Tuesday,
i the 13th inst., appeared a -)nmuni
e cation from Senator Cole L. Blease
e to the voters of Newberry county,
. telling the people how the dispensary
o law originated, giving figures as to
e school money derived from the dis
s pensary, wanting to know what means
e this combination among the prohi
t bitionists, the blind-tiger element,
d the moonshiners and those who favor
1 open bar-rooms, and calling the at
_ tention of the people of the county
a to the meeting on Saturday last, ask
n ing if it did not look like similiar
e meetings that have been held, and
d asking if it was a political meeting
y helping some one to secure an office
e in disguise.
y I attended the meeting held in the
court house on Saturday last. I
Lt den;y emphatically that any one, so
far as my knowledge goes. was trying
to help himself or any.one else into
office. In fact, of the great gather
r: ing in the court house on Saturday
Iast, there were present less than
half a dozen that have ever held an
office in the county. It was com
posed of ministers and citizens from
different sections of the county, get
ie ting ready to vote out the demon
So far as the origin of the dispen
sary is concerned, it does not con
cern the people. It has been on trial
for ten or twelve years, and it is
called on tto give an account of itself.
I am no leader of the anti-dispensary
movement. In fact I don't believe
it has any leaders. It is an uprising
of the people to throw off this evil,
t .that has brought so much desolation
e to the homes of the county, and
1s ruined so many of our citizens. Mr.
- Blease seems to want a joint dis
ie cussion on the subject. How would
d Mr. Blease, or any one else, give
- any information on the dispensary,
,e when it has been the by-word in
e every home for ten or twelve years,
during which time the people have
been watching and observing for
themselves? At almost every session
of the legislature, since the dispen
s, sary law 'has become a law, it has
been amended and appealed, added
to and taken away from, committees
appointed to investigate. Every time
y it has been touched in any way the
. worse it. has become, until the people
- have become disgusted, and today
y they are rising up all over the coun
d ty as one man, and are -just on the eve
e of saying, "Enough of a thing is
y enough." Surely the senator of New
- berry county, where nine-tenths of
r t'he people are church members, and
r. where we have a magnificent college
o located at. our county seat, sending
- out her graduates over the state every
year, and wh.:e there are so many
f tears shed by the good women of the
s county on account of liquor, is not
going to attempt to lead the move
ment to hold the dispensary in the
county, on the plea of 1o wrering taxes,
when it is well known tlit every dol
it lar spent for liquor is gone never
, to return. Cole, let's have no escus
sion over this matter, there is nothing
y to discuss. You might as well come
, and vote with the people. They do
. not need an interpreter, and they are
a just as sure to get rid of this demon,
as if they had already accomplished

Remember what the "Myriad-minded

The best way to be faithful to your
selves is by having faith in youy

those twin ancient sisters, Faith an
