-GOOD FOR $5,000 A YEAR"
The Index did not suggest that tax
r\f fifrv sprite, a nafkasfP on all whiskev
shipments as a joke. If it is legal in
Birmingham, Ala., it ought to be in
Officially the express shipments of
whiskey here average two hundred
' a week. Fiay cents the package
would bring into the town treasury
one hundred dollars a week. One j
hundred dollars the week for one
year, fifty-two weeks, will bring In
five thousand and two "hundred dol-'
lars. This will pay several items of.:
municipal expense and is worth look- ;
ing into.?Greenwood Index.
This reminds us of a story that we
used to hear in the days of the dis-.
pensary. The story runs, that a trav- J
eling man got into Abbeville one
evening after the dispensary had clos
ed. and He was just a little tmrsty, so
he called one of the bell 'boys at the !
hotel and asked him o: the chance of i
securing a little something to drink. !
The boy replied, "Am sorry, boss, but j
we have the dispensary here ana It:
closes at sundown and will not open ;
until tomorrow morning, but ir you
really want something to drink and
will get me a horse and buggy, I will
run o.ver to Greenwood and set you all
~ " !
The point is that Greenwood was at ]
that time a prohibition county. And
it would seem from the amount tnat
the Index says is shipped in there
each week that it is still a prohibition
VOUULy, wihi a yi*;u.iy ui iuc aiuu iv
supply the really thirsty. And then it
should -be remembered that Greenwood
has a great many other towns j
with express offices.
We have not the facts, 'but we j
would think that not half of two hundred
gallons is receievd at Xebwerry
per week, and some of the thirsty inclined
live hereaibout also.
We are inclined to agree with the
Index, however, that this plan of levy/
ting a small tax on each shipment
would 'be a good way to raise some
revenue, and then whiskey is not ne-1
cessary, and if the people want to indulge
in its use let them pay for it.
But we do not 'believe it would raise
anything like $5,000 a year in Newberry.
We print a letter from Former Gov
I B enor Blease on the State wide can-1
H paign. It is, as he says, that the
m abolition of the campaign would not
W in the least hurt him. <He is well known
and you have to hand it to him that
he can always draw a crowd when he
announces that he will speak. The
- people like to hear him. We have not
M changed our mind that we just as well J
have the campaign It can do no harm !
and then it gives every candidate for'
any State position the opportunity to j
come before the people and present hi? '
une insurance companies uouig j
business in Charleston pay annually j
into the city treasury in license fees !
over $18,000, according to The News
and Courier. The withdrawal of this
much revenue from the city will leave
k a pretty big hole to be filled.
When Bob Roark was going through
the jail on an inspection tour the other
day one of the dusky prisoners said:
'Sheriff, do you k?.cW de difference
H 'tween de moon an' dis jail?" The
1 sheriff said he didn't believe he did.
"Well," replied the ace o: spades. "De
"moon, it just gits full onct a inont, and
dis jail, it stays full all de time."?
We suppose this is another good j

the jails have not been full because
there were no officers to enforce the

'Judge McLeod, in sentencing a man
A in Charleston last week for violation
of the liquor law, said "the blind tiger
is a parasite on the community and
bears the same relation as does a bed- j
bug to a human bein^."?Pickens Sentinel.
Judge McLeod should not make such
invidious comparisons as that and then
he should be ashamed to use such language
from the bench. H ut. tut. That:

DEATH OF MRS. H. C. SUMMER \
Mrs. H. iC. Summer died at her nome
near Pendleton on Sunday morning,
March 12, at 7 o'clock. She had not'
been in good health '.or a year or more,
and while her deaLh was not 'unexpected
at any time, still it was a great
shock to her aged hus'band and the J
j__ , ^ , l
oiner memoers 01 tne tamiJy.
Before her marriage she was Miss j
Mary Jane Scruggs, a daughter of !
Robert iScruggs, a citizen of Helena.!
Mrs. Summer was born August 14,
1847, and was, therefore, in her 69th;
year at the time a' her death.
She was married to Mr. Summer on
the 12th day of December. 1S67, and:
if she had lived until the coming De- j
ceaiber one year would have made j
their pilgrimage through life's high-!
way together a half century. X long j
time, humanly speaking, for two peo- j
pie to journey together as man and j
wife, and yet but a span. She i6 sur- j
vived by her aged husband, who is all j
broken up by the breaking of the ten- !
der ties which have existed during:
this half century, but he must be sus- j
tained by the assurance that all things
are done for the best of those ywho j
journey here, though we may not at
the time be able to see it. He has'
the sympthy of a host of friends in
his loneliness. She is also survived |
by one daughter and two sons. Mrs. j
Cole L. Blca:-e and H. Clint Summer,;
Jr., and Jack C. 'Summer. The" two
boys made their home with their pa-,
rents at Pendleton and Mrs. Blease,
lives in Columbia. The amily has been
greatly blessed as this is the first '
death and the first 'vacant chair in the,
household during all these years.
Mrs. Summer lived at Helena the;
greater pat of her life, and only a few 1
years ago the family moved to Pendle- j:
ton where they have a fine old country
Tlie marriage certificate shows that
the marriage ceremony of Mr. and Mrs. j
Summer was performed by the Rev. IW. I
u. Maytield, a Baptist minister, and I
the ather of Mr. W. D. Mayfield who I
was at one time State superintendent *
of education for South Carolina.
Mrs. Summer was a member of the
Baptist church and was a loving wife
and an indulgent mother and a kind
and thoughtful neighbor.
Burial was had at Rosemont cemetery
in Newberry on Monday after-;:
noon, the services being conducted*;
rom the residence of Mr. Julius Eison |i
at 4:30 o'clock by the Revs. E. V. Babb
and F. E. Dibble. 1

The Great Kidney Medicine
Fulfills Its Mission
I was afflicted with Bladder trouble.
I suffe ed such great pain that the
doctor had to take my urine. After (
the doctor had treated me for two
weeks, I did not get any better. Re- \
membering that a few doses of Dr. J
Kilmer's Swamp-Root compleiely reJ
lieved my Mother-in-law, after all the
doctors who were called on her case
had failed to do her any good, I asked
my husband to get me a 'bottle of
Swamp-Root, which he did, and I took
if and threw the doctors' preparations
away, because immediately a ter I
started taking Dr. Kilmer's SwampRoot
I was greatly relieved. |My husband
was,so pleased he said 1 should
take one dozen bottles of Swamp-Root,
but by the time I had taken seven bottles
I was completely restored to
health. That was six years ago and I
have not taken any medicine since. My
