I rou rot to have to waste a little ,

to still holster up whiskey usa great :

usc burnt brandy in ?'ases of Dys- j

I outcry Is an Intensely Inflaniatory
; disease, and an intelligent l'liysi- '
I chm would no moro think of using
brandy as a remedy for dysentery,
j than be would think of using Cro
! ton oil.
I nm also aware of the great pre-'
tensions of brandy ns a cure for
snake bite, but it has nothing wintl
ow r to stand on.
I think from my own experience'
that tho matter stands about thus.
If a man is bitten hy a snake and
then throughly saturated with whis
key, and dies bodies Irom the bite, I
aided hy the whiskey, if be lives ho

isa very old vulgar remody. The.

no faith whatever in brandy asa:

But Tallahassee's attempt to il
lustrate what be calls my lecture
by reference to the stale joke of
the flint rocks and the gooso eggs
is really too ridiculous, und contem
ptable for notice, were it not for
venom, evidently contained in it.
This ls a very old joke and I have
heard it told many times by Tem
perance lecturers at different places
but this ls tho llrst time that 1 have
known it to be brought in to do
service on the opposite side. I have
also heard it located at different
places. But a few year ; ago when
I was canvassing this county and
it was thought necessary to weak
en my iniluer.ee in tho temperance
question. I (or the first tillie, be
gan to hear from different quarters
of its liebig located on myself.. Of
course the thing was gotten lip by
tho lowest down, most sneaking
kind of enemies. And the manner
in which Tallahassee brings it in
und placing lt where it makes no
flt and utterly fails to illustrate
anything shows plainly that he in
tended it solely as a personal fling.
Many years ago, under the lead of
whiskey, I did many foolish and
ridiculous things; so does every
other man who stoops to follow
such a leader. But, I can I ll lor m
Tallahassee that his venomous

their opponents in open, mnnlv I

to the willful slandering of the. tem

Rut it wont work. If any honest
man will walk over tho impover
ished farm of Laurens county, and
then make an estim?te of bow
many thousand of dollars these im
poverished farms contribute year
ly to support the saloons of the
towns, ami then say that whiskey
is a blessing I tell bim plainly that
ho speaks v. lint be does not believe.
Nine tenth of thc money (hut goes
to tho support of tho saloons is fur
nished by t. o hard-working bard
living farmers, ?inti mechanics of
tho county. And yet not one dol
lar of it overcomes back.
What is not pocketed by thu sa
loon keepers goes to cloon out the
gutters and Improve tl streets ol
the town, thereby sayb ils cill
ions from taxation, bu .. the far
mer* it is a dead lons. Therefore
I can understand bow a town-man
can corner off a poor ignorant far
mer and attempt by subterfuges,
and glasses to enlist lils support,
but for a man who ls himself only
a tanner to do this I confess ls bo
j ind my comprehension. For a
prominent farmer in any Towu
. attempt to rally his Heigh
ho i ' .ainst "Prohibition" when ro
di.< to its literal meaning,
amounts simply to this: Well my
brother farmer we must assert our
rights. We have had the privilege
and have enjoyed lt for years, of
contributing from our lund earned
money, so badly needed on .air
farms, to help clean out tho gutters
end beautify tho streets of our coun
ty town. The right belongs to us.
I know the money is badly needed
at home, that we are working hard,
and living hard, but those town peo
ple need lt too, and they must have
lt, oven though wc have to suifor I
When reduced lo its plain menn
ing this is just What every funner
must say. I low can a farmer, hav
ing one spoek of manhood left, stoop
to do it. Of all men lu the world
tho farmers should bo tho most
deadly set against the saloons.
Ile pays all the expense and nov
or receive one cent in return. And
yet strange to say many of the poor
farmers of this county will contend
Vigorously for tho privilege of still
doing so. Why don't they ipoil
their eyes, and see w hat dupes are
being made of them? Even to
leave temperance out of the ques
tion why don't they assert enough
independence ami manhood to say
you wont bd us sell whiskey any
wi.oro in tho county, your town
(daims to monopolize all the rights
connected with it, ami to use all
the money that Hows from the traf
fic. Wo don't think this exactly
fair. If then; is any good in it, we
are as much entitled to it ns you
are. Therefore as you insist on
reaping nil the benefit while we
pay tho expenso, wo have conclu
ded to assert our independence and
vote for Prohibition.
