WILL PUT UP CANDIDATE.
Spartanburg Politician Says Dispen
sary People Will Have Man to
Make Race for Governor.
The ioilowiing interview appeared
in the Spartanburg Herald on Satur
day. It will be interesting- just at
this time. t
"Mark my prediction," said a gen
tieman to the Herald reporter yes
terday. "the dispensary will put forth
a strong candidate for governor, who
will interest the boys during the next
The man who was talking is one of
the most astute and best informed
politicians in Spartanburg countj,
and aside from his sound judgment
and prophetic gift. is. an individual
who has been familiar with the work
ings of the dispensary system since
it was a law.
"Why don't you make the race?"
queried the reporter as he watched
the forefinger of the man's right hand
hastily trace a manuscript.
"That's not the question. To tell
you the truth, I haven't the time,
neither the inclination; but the men
who created the dispensary law and
gave it to the state, are not willing
for it to be prostituted and trans
formed into a cess pool of corruption.
Nothing was further front their in
tention than the present management
of the dispensary throughout the
state. The law is all right; what it
needs is the proper enforcement by a
strong hand, and honest, incorrupt
ible men at the head. This talk of
prohibition is worship of a fetish.
Nbne know it better than the few
designing, turncoat politicians who
expect the honest people to be delud
ed into voting out the dispen
sary for their own advancement. I
can understand ministers of the gos
pel-they must preach ideals."
"What about beer dispensaries?"
"There is no law for their existence,
and it is an open violation of the dis
pensary law rules and regulations to
countenance them, but in my opinion,
they will be abolished by the courts.
The idea of a man conducting a busi
ness of the kind and the state board
being as ignorant of what he is re
ceiving as salary as you or I is
repugnant to the letter a,nd spirit of
"In my opinion what has caused the
unrest and dissatisfaction with the
<dispensary system has not been the
law itself; but the way in which it has
"But," he continued, "the men who
framed the law and passed it are not
going to allow so good a measure to
be killed without a determined fight,
and in my opinion, when the system
is cleansed and purged of the rotten
ness and hishonor now attached to
it the peo'ple of South Carolina will
see that it is the best solution to one
of the most intricate problems that
eve confronted a free government."
"And who dlid you say would run
for governor?" asked the reporter.
"I didn't say," was the reply, "but
he :-ili be a man who believes in the
diispAnsary law and its strict enforce
menn: to the spirit and letter."

The Millennium Had Come.
An English lord was traveling
through this country with a small
arty of friends. At a farmhouse the
owner invited the party to supper.
The good housewife, while preparing
the table, discovered she was enter
taining nobility, was nearly overcome
with surprise and elation.
All seated at the table, scarcely a
moment's peace did she . grant her
distinguished guest in her endeavor
to serve and please him. It was "My
Lord, will you have some of this?"
and "My Lord, do try that," "Take a
piece of this, My Lord," until the
meal was nearly finished.
The little four-year-old son of the
family, heretofore unnoticed, during
a moment of supreme quiet saw his
lordship trying to reach the pickle
dish, which was just out of his reach,
and turning to his mother said:
"Say, Ma, God wants a pickle."
A RIDE UP PIKE'S PEAK.
It Is Likely Almost Literally to Burst
Your Head Open.
To take a pleasure ride that almost
literally bursts your head open is a
novelty thrilling enough, it is to be
presumed, for the most eager thrill
seeker. But that is what often hap
pens to him who essays the dizzy
heights of Pike's Peak, 14,0oo feet
above sea level.
"I went up on the cog road from
Manitou," asid -a Baltimore man, "in
company with a party of tourists,
and before we reached the Halfway
House there were two who exhibited
such positive symptoms of distress
that at the first stop they had to
leave and take the next train down.
The rest of us continued. In a 'seat
a little in front of us was a young
girl who had been growing gradually
hysterical, and whom we had been

happen next. It happened. Suddenly
she threw up her hands and fell back

mouth, ears, eyes and nose. The
conductor, who was evidently accus

to lay her flat on her back, as the
pressure was less there than with
the head high in a sitting posture.
Then, at the next station, she was ta

the wagon road. They didn't dare to
