'BROTHEU BOB" ON DISPENSARY.
He Rejoices That Light Has Broken
Upon His Fiieud, Sam Jenes.
Fountain Inn, May 21st.
? Kuitor Advertiser: l am glad to
seo that Rev. Sam P. Jones has eome
squarely to his sense* on tho dispen
sary question at last. You will send
Brother Sam a copy of this issue as he
will be dollghtod to know that he has
become enlightened ami roformeel ami
fully civilised. Brother Sam is a splen
did fellow, full of fun and fury and a
verl'ablo cycloco when hi turns loos'?
on men and thing*, and mo.-o so whon
ho gols his head turned in the wio'ig
direction. B lug quiok on trigger he
cften goes off 'half-cocked, doing im
mense damage by such discharges.
Somo years ago af or stumping L?U>
rens county as a "probi" candidate
against a hall dog en dispensary boast
ers, having fought end bled and died in
wluit 1 conceived to be a good cause,
feathering unmerc'fully everything In
Mght that smcP of whiskey, I felt all
but like a martyr who had accom
plished great thing*. In fact l was told
by some of the high-strung Johnathon
twist-medlspensarltos that my spodies
had done good.
About that time Brother Sam came
to Laurons and lec'urcd. Of coune 1
went down to hear him. expecting
great help and comfort and high en
dorsement. At the proper time in his
speech ho lit onto tho b ir-keep;rs and
bunged them up deoent'y. After hav
ing annihilated them to a nioety ho
turned to tho men tint had been fight
ing the dispensary and put them in
the samo boat. I was actually ashamed
f >r the man and wanted to onl;ghten
him?because I had studied tho s lb
jeot and kniW something about it, and
kne* from the t?l*n his di scou.-e had
takf n, he didn't. Hut you see I was in
a hole and couldn't, i. e. I was in tho
audienco and he had the stump. I am
glad that Brother Sim is a good stu
dent and C3n learn by experience and
thai he has the experience. He his
chinned hU mind and he has the man
limas to conf.-ss it. Hoar h'.m: ''The
Drat thing I want to do is to publicly
apologize to Mrs. \V. P. Lovejoy and
say emphatically she was right, and
Sana Jones and all the preachers and
churches of Rooae wer i wrong on that
issue in Floyd Co uity two yea-s ego.
That dispensary issue was like the
Trojan hoi\-e. It brought in some
things that were not in sight, and had
I boon ai thoroughly coavorsmt with
all the issue* and questions Involved in
that dispensary then a* I am now, I
should have been squarely on the other
Exaotly. I knew h a'l the time but
was not in a posil'on to seo Brother
Sam. That was all. I should be
pleased he would se d mo a nicely
written and folded a; ology for the same
offence six yoars ago.
Further on ho says : "And ti e effort
being made, by tho dispensary people
to take this traffio of evil out of the
bands of bar-ke?pers and put it into
tho hands of church puiple to buy it
and sell, is not lifting the liquor traffic
up one iota. Bit it is dragging the
Precisely so. Even as I told the p:o
plo of my county six years ago. It's a
pity Brother Sam ha in't attended my
lectures beforj he d itivered his s nil at
Laurens and afterward carried homo
to GaorgU a convic'Jon that helped to
establish for his dear State one of tho
most pernicious liquor schemes and
machines that ever cursed a common
wea'th. But bettet" late than never.
Yo i have hit the track f-ontward this
timo, Brother Sam S> go it with a
hump on you; never say dio.
Again: "If i?s wrong fo- a saloon
koeper to stand hch'n I his counter and
dish out to his fellowm ia at ton cents
a drink for the money there is in It,
then, in the name of all that God ap
proves, how in the name of sense can
four meinberj of Ihc church in F.oyd or
Clarko cuunttoj tak i ch irgo of the
business as commissioners and reonivo
a salary of $200. a m >nth to buy and
sell to the poor devi s who patronize
the tank, * * be anything more or
less in tho sinht of Go 1 and good peo
ple than the poor devil called a saloon
keeDer who dishci It out at t-n cents a
This question I had answered to the
good pooplo that undo up Brother
Sim's audience oi the n'ght afore
siid, previous to his coming. But now
I can say with gladoess and hope, hur
rah for the hind horse! he's coming in
a cantor, But again: "I ooce fond'ed
tho thought that tho dispensary was a
stepping stone to prohibition, but it Is
tho biggest enuny and the most terrillo
bulwark that ever p-ohibition ran up
To be sure you did, and that is what
I wanted to tell you so bad at,d
couldn't. You had mo In a hole then,
and was si ootlng in on me buckshot
out of a doub'.o barreled gun made,
loaded and provided (unawares on
your part) by whiskey venders, Wasn't
it awful? /?
Fifthly: "Iroponti', instead of be
ing a stepping stone to p ohlbition, tho
di.-puuN.ii-y, like Goorge Washington,
has becomo emba'med in the hearts of
its counfymon and it is the greatest
obstacle that can bo placed in tho way
of the prohibition of tho traflic."
All this I fore saw clearly, . but
eou'dn't toll yon, you s;e oaso you had
mo in a hole. Now, that I havo you n
a hole, you don't mind me, just for self
gratification and pare retaliation,
shooting a few frkn lly rouiHs of bird
shot in there on you, eh? It fs only to
remind you how it woul I feel were it
loud d with buckshot made and pro
vided by a whiskey clique,
Lastl): "Run your tanks, gentloinon;
lo?seri your taxes: debauch your citi
/.jns; All up your negroes with your
p>p-skull liquor, and turn thorn loose
t. > commit rape and arson and bur
glary; debauch your poor white citl*
fcjns; dischirgo your offloials who wqn't
f U into line with your tank idea: let
every little fellow that pops up for of
fice announce that he Is in . favor of
celling out his county and people at a
dollar a head. Oo it, Go it. The djvlt
will get the wh do bunch, but thank
God, he won't get much."
Enough. That will do Brother S ?m.
You can oime out now. Yon have ro
deeaaod yourself on th.s last uttera'.cj.
I present the flsg or truce.' Come out.

Dear sir?Three years ago I purchased a Rialto Canning

A Tragic Life Story?
If then1 hi anything in tha theory that wo ?et our heaven and hell hero on i irlh,
it could bo said with perfect truth that a $1 medical prescription known as 1). D, !>.,
literally lifted tin; man out of hell. The awful miseries of a poisoned skin can bo
understood only by the afflicted. The nights of sleepless agony with hands tied to
prevent tearing the flesh, the rundown general condition which results, and the hlach
hopelessness of life can all he visibly traced in the first of these photos. A ; will be
?cen this man is a man of powerful physique, but it will be seen from his face \.\ t!i ?
first picture that it is a grim strugglo to live and keep up Iiis courage.
In contrast, if tho reader will fairly consider the picture after treatment with
D, D. I >., a new man is seen. Study this picture; contrast the two. Something has
worked a wondor here. Header, it was nothing on earth but I). I), P. and a kind
Providence which directed tho attention of this man to a public announcement about
this medicament and its wonderful work in such cases. Providence went farther than
this; it gave him some confidence in what he read. He made up his mind that ho
would try it. To this fact ho owes all the peace, content and happiness so plainly
seen in his face in tho second picture. He states that after the third application of
the remedy all his previous distress had disappeared entirely. The fevered condition
resulting from continued irritation had subsided and he slept soundly nights.
The name of this gctlcman is Mr. Henry Walters, of St. Louis, Mo. We have
the sworn affidavit of Mr. Walters that in just twenty-nine days after starting treat
ment with D. D? D. he discontinued further use of it, every visible trace of the dis
ease having disappeared. Since that time not a trace of the trouble has shown itself
on any part of his body. His hair has since grown long and the scrubby beard pre
viously grown on his face to hide the sores, is kept cleanly shaved, and he is today a
man of strikingly fine appearance, with the highost ambition and activities in life and
every happiness possible to most men hero on earth. Results of this kind that are
proven'to be directly duo to a preparation of this sort certainly call for public ap
preciation. This prescription in sealed bottles, bearing authentic label of D. 1>. I>.
Co. of Chicago, sold at $i. Tho bottlo is a liberal one and has proved sufficient to
entirely cure many cases.
is probably the worst and most stubborn of skin diseases, and it was for this that this
prescription was studied out and perfected, but all skin diseases am caused by para
sites or some form of germ life in the skin-structuro. The proscription quickly and
entirely annihilates all forms of parasitic life lodged anywhere in the skin.
Many people imagine they have blood trouble when they break out with some form
of skin affection, but not in ono caso in a hundred is this a fact, as the very
Healthiest blood is often found in the strongest men affected with breaks and erup
tions of somo kind in tho skiu. In all such cases the trouble is at the surface or near
tho snrfaco, and it can bo searched out and annihilated completely by this preparation.
The Above Is True.
Wo havo received carefully prepared and fully attested documents and particulars
regarding tha caso above mentioned of Mr. Henry Walters, of St. Louis, a victim of
psoriasis, a form of oc/ema. Wo can say to all persons afflicted with any form
of skin disease that tho medical tostimony submitted shows beyond a doubt
ll: t they can cilro themselves by the use of this preparation. We say beyond a do;;!;*.
Wo mean this fully, providing the affection is really a skin disease, as it has been showd
tnat each of tho known germs that cause skin affection have been entirely routed
out and conquered by tho preparation,
