Attention, Friends of Temperance.
On Saturday night December 1st,
3883 the procemiL1on which i'arched
through the streets with a band of
iuisic cheering .) fo the success of
"'the vet" or the \''License"I ticket, ap
proached( with lively Ilnsle tlie resi
dence of the President of the Women's
Christian Temperance union, who is
also the Recordilg Secretary of the W.
%. T. U., of the State of Sout II CIroi
n4a. They halted, ordered a deep s4
lence, theni began a succession of
deep roans-occasioiilly interrupted
by such questions as Where's your
church," "Where's your church to
night," Where's your dead ! Bring
out your dead ! "We'll buy your dead,"'
and other thhings too low to record.
They then called aloud "Play the dead
march to )r. Wallter," and they play
()dl it aid wNent oi' playing it.

proached the house ti-t I inight for

procesion a pyroache~d ou r d weling t hey

intended a. an insult to the W. C. T. U.
OVerI' my head. I iever .felt. h appier
