Whiskey, or No Whiskey, Wnlch?
Editor ok The Advertiser:
Tho whiskey question is being agitated
as never before, not only in South
Carolina, but throughout the entire un
jAMratul wo find hum, good nun, of \ U
Wil opinions. Some believe In hiKh li
cenfte, some no license, some in the dis
pensary, some in prohibition, some tem
perance, some total abstinence, etc.
But the question is not a financial, po
litical or social one, but one of morals.
The question is: Is it right or wrong to
manufacture, sell or drink intoxicating
liquors? I have no arguments, they
have all been produced for and against;
but let us go to the Book, tho Bible,
and see what God says about this great
moral question and his decision is final
I and eternal. See Prov. 20:1. "Wine is
B mocker, strong drink is raging; and
whosoever is deceived thereby is not
[ wise." Prov. 23:29-32. Who hath woe?
Who bath sorrow? Who hath conten
tions? Who bath babbling? Who hath
wounds without cause? Who hath red
ness of eyes? They that tarry long at
the wine; they that go to seek mixed
wine. Look not thou upon the wine
when it is red, when it giveth his colour
in the cup, when it moveth itself
aright; at the last it bitetb like a ser
pent and stingeth like an adder."
Isaiah 5:22-24. "Woe unto them that
feye mighty to drink wine, and men of
? strength to mingle strong drink which
justify the wicked for reward, and take
away the righteousness of the righteous
from him," etc. Haba. 2:15. "Woe un
to him that giveth his neighbor drink,
that puttest thy bottle to him, and]
makest him drunken" etc. 1 Cor. 10.31
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or
whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of
These strong words of God ought to
forever settle the question with God's
people; and there are many other pas
sages like unto them.
Brother, you that have been debat
ing the question whether you will sign
the petition or vote against whiskey,
stop and ask yourself the question:
Is this whiskey business right or|
Does it contribute to the moral de
velopment of our county?
Does it help our churches?
What help is it to our Orphanages |
but to make orphans?
Docs this business promote happi
ness, joy and peace in our homes? Oh!|
where is the help of this business to |
^^Will not the Christian people of all
^denominations put their hearts together
and pray that God may help us to see
that which is right and under the lead
ership of the Holy Spirit march on un
til victory shall perch upon our banner |
as we go.

Sickening Shivering Fits
Of Ague and Malaria, can be re-1
lieved and cured with Electric Bitters.
This is a pure, tonic medicine; of es
pecial benefit in malaria, for it exerts a
true curative influence on the disease,
driving it entirely out of the system.
It is much to be preferred to Quinine,
having none of this drug's bad after-ef

buying seeds for his garden, will save
several dollars outlay later on. It is

Your eommittee appointed to draft
and submit a memorial of our deceased
brother, G. W. Monroe, beg leavo to
That the grea? father of the universe
having again visited us for the purjwse
of calling one of our brothers from the
scenes of his earthly labors, the choice
fell upon Brother G. W. Monroe, one
who labored long and faithfully among
us. Being ripe in years and physically
infirm for some years past, he could
not be as punctuul in his attendance
upon our regular meetings as he would
have liked, but in heart und spirit he
was ever with us.
Brother Monroe was in his sixty-sixth
year at the time of his death, which oc
curred on the 7th day of May, 1905.
Was buried on the day following in the
cemetery at Laurens, S. C, with Ma
Brother Monroe was faithful in all
the relations of life; to his county and
State as a citizen and as a soldier; to
his family as a husband and a father;
to his neighbors as a friend ever kind
and considerate. He was modest and
unassuming in the performance of
every duty as he saw it.
Therefore be it r solved?
1st: That in th death of Brother G.
W. Monroe, Palmetto Lodge, No. 19,
A. F. M., has lost a true and faithful
member; one who ever kept the tenets
of the Order in his heart; who had
faith in God, hope of a glorious immor
tality, and charity for all mankind.
2nd. That though we as members of
this Lodge have consigned his body to
the dust, and his spirit, to the God who
gave it, yet we will ever cherish his
memory in our hearts.
3rd. That we tender our sympathy,
both as a Lodge and individually, to his
4th. That a page in our Minute book
be inscribed to his memory and a copy
of these resolutions, suitably engrossed,
be furnished the family.

T. B. Crews,
W. C. Irby, Sr.
The committee to whom it was re
ferred to prepare a tribute to the mem
ory of our deceased brother, S. K. Tay
lor, beg leave to submit the following:
Whereas, the Supreme Architect of
the universe has removed our brother,
S. K. Taylor, from the Mosaic pave
ment in the Temple below to the blaz
ing star in the Temple above; and
Whereas, the rough ashler has been
fashioned into the perfect ashler, and
translated by the Great Architect in
furtherance of the plans and designs
laid down upon the trestle-board of
Whereas, our departed brother, in
his intercourse with his fellow-men,
ever met them on the level, worked by
the plumb, and parted on the square.
Therefore, be it resolved
1st. That in the death of our brother,
S. K. Taylor, Palmetto Lodge, No. 19,
A. F. M., has sustained a serious and a
2d. That while we sorrow for the
loss of our brother, we bow in humble
submission to the will of the Great De
3rd. That a page in our Minute book
be dedicated to the memory of our de
4th. That a copy of this tribute be
served upon the family of our deceased
brother, and tendered to the County pa
