DISCUSSION OF THE DISPENSARY.
A Correspondent Thinks Laurens Will
Vote Out the Dispensary.
Editor Advertiser: With your per
mission I want to say a few more words
on The * All Important Topic, the dis
pensary. I am delighted to see so many
counties voting to put liquor out. Twelve
counties have voted out the dispensary
and very probably four or five more
will vote it out before the legislature
meets in January and with Greenwood
and Marlboro will make eighteen or
twenty counties for prohibition. I am
glad the people are having a chance to
show that they are tired of this awful
evil at a time when there is no politics
in it. The politicians are saying that
the elections being held does not fairly
indicate the will of the people, because
there has not been a full vote. Every
voter has had the privilege to vote and
because so many stayed away from the
polls it shows conclusively that they
did not care to save the dispensary and
are willing to have prohibition. Some
say let it be settled at the next elec
tion. I think that is the time it cannot
be settled right. Let the thing be kept
out of politics. I do hope the Legisla
ture will accept the voice of the people
and do away with the state feature of
it and if Charleston, Richland, Sumter
and Georgetown want to hold on to the
dispensary let them have a county dis
pensary operated and controlled by the
county as in Georgia and North Caro
lina. I hope the legislature will let all
tbe prohibitive and restrictive features j
of the present law remain in counties
voting out the dispensary and that j
every officer in town and county be re
quired to do their duty to keep out the
tigers. And if necessary we are willing
to pay the one-half mill tar. to enforce
the law. I am anxious to see Laurens
county show to the people of South
Carolina that we are a Christian peo
ple and will fall in line with the other
counties voting out liquor. If the Pres
byterians, Baptists and Methodists of
Laurens county will stand true to
Christ and their fellow man we will vote
it out ten to one. This election may be
?a crisis in the life of every voter. Lau
rens county expects every man to do

HANDSOME NEW CHURCH.
Methodists of Lanford are Building New
Church at a Cost of $4,000.
A handsome new church building is
taking the place of the old Patterson's
Chapel (Methodist) at Lanford. The
new church is located near the sito of
the old one. The corner stone was laid
Aug. 23 and the Church will probably be
completed early in January. It is modern
in architectural beauty and design and
will cost about $4,000.
Rev. C. B. Burns is the pastor and
the fact that he closes his four year's
work on that charge with so handsome
a church practically finished speaks
most highly of his labors'.
The building committee is composed
of Messrs. T. R. DeShields, M. G. Pat
terson and C. L. Waldrop. Patterson's
Chapel has a large membership, includ
ing a number of the most progressive
and well-to-do citizens in the county.

Terrific Race With Death.
"Death was fast approaching,"
writes Ralph F. Fernandez, of Tampa,
Fla., describing his fearful race with
death, as a result of liver trouble and
heart disease, which had robbed me of
sleep and of all interest in life. I had
tried many different doctors and sev
eral medicines but got no benefit until
I began to use Electric Bitters. So
wonderful was their effect, that in three
days I felt like a new man, and today I
am cured of all my troubles." Guar

to paint every house and everything
made of wood in a city with the L. &
In use thirty years; several houses
painted with L. & M.
L. & M. costs about $1.20 per gallon.
The L. & M. is the best and cheap
est, because the L. & M. Zinc, hardens
the L. & M. White Lead, and makes it
paint more surface and wear a longer
time than any other paint.
L. & M. costs about $1.20 a gallon.
It only requires 4 gallons of this cele
brated and 3 gallons of Linseed Oil at
60 cents per gallon to paint a moderate
sized house. Therefore a property
owner ought not pay $1.50 per gallon
for Linseed Oil, which he must do when
a ready-for-use paint is bought.
L. & M. costs about $1.20 a gallon.
