The Williamsburg Medical So
ciety took under consideration
the spreading habit and use of
morphine and cocaine, and The
Rutledge County News, publish
ed at Lake City, commenting,
"This is an evil which is so common
in this section that usage has caused
our people to close their eyes to the
baneful results of this evil and the
ghastly wrecks that are being made of
men and women in this section of the
It is a very threatening evil and a
very sad fact that the medical men
here, especially in the country dis
tricts, are meeting cases in their prac
tice constantly who are wrecks in
health and wrecks in character as the
result of the habitual use of morphine
or cocaine. Notwithstanding the fact
that there are laws upon the Statute
books of South Carolina prohibiting
the sale of this narcotic it is sold by
general merchandise stores and drug
gists unrestrained and apparently with
out a thought of breaking a law or
damaging a fellowman."
There is no doubt in our mind
that the growins use of narcotics
can be attributed to the curtail
ment of the use o milder stim
ulants. We have been reliably
informed that in the upper part
of South Carolina, in the manu
facturing settlements, it is a
common sight to see men and
women. and sometimes children,
under the influence of a narcotic
which they procured from a
drug store, or at most any coun
try store-nearly all country
carry medicines. The same au
thority told us a large percent
age of these "dopes" began the
habit by drinking coca cola, and,
as a rule, most of those who
"take a shot" at certain intervals
through the day, are worthless
for work if they run out of the
stuff. He said that among many
of the operatives in the mills,
scarcely one of them are without
a hyperdemic syringe with which
the "happy dust" is injected
into the arm; these victims are
awfully depraved. There is a
law upon the Statute books
which forbids the sale of these
drugs, but they are sold all the
same, nearly everywhere. Oc
casionally there is found a con
scientious drug store that will
not sell this stuff except in the
lawful way, but as a rule such
is not the case.
There are law and order leag
nes, and other socities looking
after the promotion of morality
that do not seek farther than the
prevention of the legal sale of
liquor; in our judgment the least
harmful of all the stimulant
habits. The very matters discus
sed by the doctors of Williams
burg county should open the
eyes of those who feel it a duty
to stand monitor over people
who are indifferent about their
morals and take the steps neces
sary to stop Brother Jones,
whose piety and liberality is
highly regarded, from dispen
sing from his store drugs, com
pounds or mixtures, that lure
into momentary happiness into
* a degrading fiendishness.
This is no new discovery made
by the Williamsburg physicians,
and if they will pursue their in
vestigations they will find much
of the trouble can be traced to
* stomach-washes dispensed at
the soda fountains, patronized
by men, women and children.
"I am dying for a glass of coca
cola and cannot do my work
until I get it," said a young lady
to the writer, she was as nervous
as a man "the morning after" in
a dry town. This lady had it
fastened in her system, and yet
she would be horrified to know
that her condition was but little
removed from those who have
the liquor habit.
Discussing this subject with a
gentleman who is a strong Pro
hibitionist, who entertained
views similar to our own, with
regard to the coca cola habit,
while we were talking another
Prohibitionist joined the discus
sion, but he disagreed, and said,
"I take three, four, and some
times more glasses of coca cola
a day, it does not hurt me, but it
gives me pleas'i -,, hence I do
not think my peasure should
be interrupted or interfered
with." Now the inconsistency.
He drinks several glasses of
coca cola a day and does not
want to be interfered with be
cause it gives him pleasure, yet
this same man would interfere
io the extent of imprisoning
another who finds pleasure in
one glass of lager beer a day, a
beverage known to all physi
cians as healthy and strength
giving. The trouble is, did the
inconsistency contine itself to
the one individual, it wouid make
little difference, but here is a
man active in his efforts to put
dcwn what he calls the "curse
of rum" and would resort to ex
treme measures, bordering on
fanaticism to carry out his
views, drinking several glasses
a day of stuff c'ontaining a nar
cotic more draining to: 'the hu
man system than whiskey. or
beer, but does not want to be
interfered with because it gives
LEVER IS ALRIGHT.
The Columbia State of Mon
day, under the heading of E
"Southern Congressmen and
Protection," has a strong edi- "I
torial comment and criticism of C0
those Southern Representatives fo
who voted for, and are about to wi
vote for a tariff on lumber, but c
its criticism is more interesting a
because of its implied threat to ch
Congressman Lever. It says: to

a tariff on lumber, and we have dE
no doubt he didso conscientious- a

true, does not advocate a tariff t
on lumber, but that platform .i
was repudiated by the American or
people, many of them previously te
voted the Democratic ticket. t
Congressmen Lever needs no
defense at our hands for his vote fo
for a tariff on lumber. He has
given to the people of South at

The question now being asked I
since the mix-up at Clemson col- s

tary man should be in sole controle
of its military feature. The in
stitution was started as an agri
cultural school, where the sons tb
of farmers couldsecure a thorough I
agricultural education, the mili
tary feature was incidental. As ei
we understand it "military tac- pi
tics" must be taught in order to is
get the benefit of the land scrip o
fund from the Federal govern- te
ment, which we are informed ci
amounts to less than $6,000 a ar
year. while the fertilizer tag tax "
that comes directly out of the pa
farmers pockets, amounts to th
$170,000 a year.
If the military feature is to be'&
a constant source of annoyance sii

itor The Manning Times: at
Dear Sir:-Mr. Blanchard assures us ci
t is truth he is after;" therefore this th
rrespondence on Easter, (invited by l
u, Mr. Editor,) need not be prolonged. E
- an appeal to early church history of
11 irrevocably destroy his original tr
im, that Easter is of pagan origin, A
n-script'aral, unknown to the apostles, e
d not a*,proved by the most worthy qu
urch fathers in the immediate apos- st;
lic succession. The historical ground tic
inquiry is the only feature of the con- g
>versv, that interests me as a student. kri
Infining ourselves to that aspect of the lit
se, I too, with Mr. Blanchard gladly Er
d willingly "invite your readers to ti
>k up classic references from every P1
ssible source, and I shall not fear the w
pular verdict." A
So far, however, from adhering to this bc
sirable method of discussion, Mr. a
anchard lowers the dignity of histor- va
il research in calling Easter "the idol A
my creed" and asserting that I am et
fending, not only a historical fact, but m
mere "sentiment." Nowhere in my sc
ticle, either "in the first sentence" of it:
(as Mr. Blanchard alleges,) or in any of
.rt of it, did I regard Easter as a 'sen- B
nent;' but most assuredly as an auth- th
ized mandate of christianity. I pro- li
sted th en-and I protest now-against m

d honor as the Easter Festival is the c

ets to Easter as Mr. Blanchard has w
ed. We may not agree with the Bap- by
ts' somewhat unusual method of bap- T
;ing; we may not see the necessity nor P3
.visability of Mother's Day (a senti- ec
nt, pure and simple; without the ea
ghtesn historical warrant,) we may g1
t recognize the need, nor the advan- Pl
ge to christianity, of two rival church- ti
of the same denomination in a small ad
wn; but we should be lacking in ch:.is- E
Lm charity, to say the least. to char- ec
terize any, or all of these as "silly and hi
irtful introductions:" " giddy senti- al
eats of unsanctitied human society,'! fc
freak of relig.ious superstition:" "an tt
ichristian ceremony;" "compliance tI
th popular sentiment:" and as "being is
variance with truth in its pristine ad
ritv " If in this free country Mr. M
lanchard and his co-religionists are al- e<
wed the fullest libertyin professing ve
d practicing such beliefs and ordi- te
aces, why should he so ruthlessly as- T

Excluding unnecessary and offensive Si

Let us now leave Mr. Blanchard's by- tu
.ths, and concentrate our attention to c
e pursuit of truth as regards Easter. tt
r. Blanchard's original indictment of w
ster may conveniently be arranged in S1
,e sections (1) its pagan origin (2) its w
ilarity to the Jewish Passover (3) un- he
riptural (4) unknown to the apostles es
inot approved by the most worthy til
.thers in the immediate apostolic suc- su
ssion. In my reply to that article, I at
oved Mr. Blanchard's contentions toI fa
uwarrantable in all five respects. s
Again using the same five depart- j1,
ents for aiscussion. (1) The word' w
laster." but not the Festival itself, is nc
.mittedly of pagan origin. Mr. Blan- tl1
ard's quotation from the Venerable X
de gives "Mensis Paschalis" as the at
iginal name. We admit frankly that t1
e word "Easter" is of pagan origin; fo
i the "Pascha," to which it was then th~
plied, is of christian berth. That dis- fo
ction, surely is clear to all. The old, "I
d perhaps better, name Pasch" still th~
gers in the North of England, where ie
ildrens' dved eggs are called "paste" hi
'gs, even tioday. Mr. Blanchard's first th
jection is simply an interesting point P
etymology, and has no bearing what- P,
er upon the question under discussion, (1
z that the J'estival (not the name) is, ce
he incorrectly asserts, of pagan' orig- re
.The quotations from Chamber's and a
e Encyclopaedia Brittanica, furnished B
Mr. Blanchard, are perfectly clear, fo
d give no ground of authority for his te
d uctiou and synopsis of- the extracts,

in. Many of the accompaning pleas- er
'able enjoyments of the 'holidays' se
ach we owe to the original 'holyday' vi
the churoh (such as bonfires in (jer- jc
sny and egg hunts in South Carolina) gi
e incorporations from pagan sources. ci
t these harmless amusements in no E
se impare the christian origin of the w
stival itself. su
An what wrong is there in such w
easures? L.et Origen and Chrysostom fa
[r. Blanchard's own selections of the li1
thers) speak. So far from these Fatb- fe
s being of assistance to Mr. Blanchard Y
argument, I shall call them as wit- cc
sses, not only to the fact that chris- to
t festivals were universally held in C
eir day, but that pagan customs of t
ting and drinking are approved by
r. Blanchard's own chosen Fathers. w
>eaking of Festivals, Origen~says "they ti'
et together, both clergy and people, mn
viting the poor and needy, and re- M
eshing the widows and orphans." Mr. tc
anchard's second advocate (Chrysos- m
m) tells his people that they might,
the conclusion of the church service le
Festival Days, recreate themselves te
ider a vine or fig-tree. I could give P
stance after instance of the same kind, cc
t these two are chosen, as it is to Or- w
en and Chrysostom we are invited by tba
r Blanchard. (l1
But let us hear a little more of Chry- fa
stom. It may surprise your readers to m
iow that Mr. Blanchard's adopted de- te
-over of Easter used the Lent and of
ster of the year 387 as the occasion of of
me of his noblest and most impressive in
scourses. Every time lhe preached dur- ci
g that holy season, crowded congre- hi
tions filled his church. And at Eas- fo
r, in Chrysostom's honor, the whole 0
;y was bright with garlands and torch- at
and to a vast multitude Chrysostom. Pt
Easter Day (note the date) poured ca
arth a paean of thanksgiving. I quote, ra
t from any Encyclopaedio, but from at
iLrrar's "Lives of the Fathers" Vol. 2, ar
ges 484-486. Origen and Chrysostom, e
erefore, have reversed sides in our es
cussion, and lend their great support th
the observance of the Festival, which jti<
ars a pagan name. As Mr. Blanchard ca
rites your readers to look up refer- so
ces from every possible source, I in- sa

it how far it carries uE on that desir
le journey, I leave your readers to de
le. In the first place. we are told that
e authorized Version of the Bible in
11 is the work of "a set of Church of
igland clergymen. whese purblindness
classic vision" it was led them to in
)duce the pagan word "Easter" in
,t 12, 4. Being a member of that
urch, I sincerely wish I could ac
iesce in Mr. Blanchard's erroneous
.tement. I would consider it an addi
mal honor to be of those who have
,en the world what is universally ac
owledged to be the finest Book in all
erature. But, alas!, the church of
igland cannot claim that coveted dis
iction. King James was a Scottish
-esbyterian, and consequently some
)at opposed to-both the Roman and
2glican branches of the church. If the
ok had any "bias," it was intended as
"set-back" to Romanism, and to ad
nce the cause of the Reformation.
.parently with this object, the King
ose not the Church of England clergy
n, but a revising committee of 47
olars, chosen from the eminent Pur
mns of that day, as well as the divines
the church of England. The Holy
ble of 1611 is the joint-production,
erefore, of the "protestantised" Eng
h church, and the Puritans. No Ro
in mandate!! More amazing still is
r. Blanchard's second historical error
this connection, for he tells us that
e word "Easter" is not found in any
)slation of the Bible apart from the
11 Version, and that the' set(!) of
urch of England clergymen introduc
it as a new word.
Before rushing into print with such a
gmatic statement, it would have been
,l for Mr. Blanchard to have verified it
- referring to the earlier translations.
2e exact opposite is the truth. The
gan word "Easter" was not introdue
. in 1611, but it is frequently used in
rlier translations. The Puritan-An
ican translators rejected it in other
aces and substituted "Passover:" so
is one instance of its incorporation
ds increased support to my view of
Lster, for the Puritans of 1611 approv
it. With two such glaring errors in
storical criticism, we may indeed, "be
er truth." I rigidly adhere to my
rmer contradiction of the 'unserip
re' aspect of Easter by re-affirming
at Sunday (as distinct from the Jew
a Sabbath;) infant baptism; and the
(mission of women to the Holy Com
union, all stand, or fall, together,
ually with Easter, if the "Ipissima
rba" of the New Testament is the
st. I would add another doctrine, too.
e word "Trinity" is not found in Holy
tripture. We have frequent referenc
to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
it the word itself, Trinity, is first used
Tertulian about the year 200, A. D.
. Paul's frequent references to his
xiety "t-o keep the Feast" are ignored
Mr. Blanchard. The reason for such
ission must be evident to all your
aders. It is impossible, if we are to
guided by St. Paul. to say we see no
ithority for Christian Festivals in the
(4) we were told by Mr. Blanchard
at Easter was unknown to the apos
s. That assertion I answer by a di
et and distinct negative. If Mr. Blan
ard will open, not one of his many en
clopaedias, but his "Life of Polycarp"
s search for truth will be gratified.
>r in the confereNe between Poly
ry and Anicetus in discussing the ac
al date for observing Easter, Poly
rp's strengt-h of argument rested on
e fact that his date was that "on
iicb he had always observed it with
John, the disciple of our Lord, and
th the rest of the apostles with whom
had been conversant." In later stag
of the controversy, St. John, who (in
eir pathetic words) "sleeps at Ephe
s" is quoted by Polycrates (198, A. D.)
Ld others used St. John's example as.
voring their date. I wish there were'
ace to quote, in extenso, Farrar, Vol.
page 82. Nearly a whole page of this
yrk is taken up in reciting merely the
mes of illustrious early christians;
e New Testament St. Philip of Acts
I, S. and his virgin daughters
songst the host of witnesses. "All of
ese," adds Polycrates "observed the
urteenth day of Nisan according to
e Gospel, deviating in no respect, but
llowing the rule of faith." Again
iaving conferred with the brethren
roughout the world, and having stud
: the whole of the sacred seriotures,
follows their example in observing
e day." Countries, as far remote as
destine. France, Greece, Italy and
>ntus all held councils about this time
)6-198) referring to the dispute con
ring the date, not the Festival. How
markably easy it would have been fo'r
christian of that period to write Mr.
tanchard's article, and settle, once and
e all, the contention by saying "Eas
r was unknown to the apostles."
Once again, I re-echo Mr. Blanchard's
rds, and cordially invite your read
s to look into the matter for them
Ives, and they will soon be fully con
nced that no christian Festival can be
stitied on scriptural and historical
ounds with such a wealth of support
s (the very apostles themselves) as
ster is enriched. Christmas (much as
v 'alue it) has not half the historical
pport. It certainly is not Biblical, and
ts unknown to the apostles, and early
thers. The date (December 25th,) has
tIe, if any justification in fact. The
stival is of comparatively late date.

rrespondent who assails Easter on his
rical -grounds, wr'ote an article in your

Mr. Blauchard. How much worse

But (5) Mr. Blanchard, in his second
t~ter, calmly passes over the direct
timony I adduced from Ignatius,
lycarp and Irenaeus, as though of no
nsequence. Will he now, clearly and
.thour, evasion. acknowledge or deny,

irness to me and to your readers, he

mediate church Fathers. And a dis

in the school auditorium before the
largest crowd ever assembled here in
