LAURENS, S. C, DECEMBER 4, 1907.
The Prohibitionjsts are moving for
another election in this county, and it
is just as well to discuss the matter a
little. In our opinion the question is
one of expediency rather than of prin
ciple. Our judgment is that prohibi
tion would be fairly well enforced in
l his county. The average Laurens
white man doesn't want whisky. He
will not go out of his way to buy it.
Even those who occasionally get drunk
as a rule do so because the whisky is
easy to get. Nine out of ten men who I
would go to a dispensary on a salcsday
in December and buy a flask would not
rhink abo it troubling themselves to
mend half an hour or an hour trailing
a blind tiger to get it. Most men who
sometimes take a drink when it is
handy would not juggle with a negro
who happened to have a jug from which
he was retailing in dark places.
Of courso there would be some whis
ky sold, in spite of prohibition, in Lau
rens. Perhaps a good deal would be
sold, but blind tigers, so long as they
were not permitted to sell openly, and
so long as the policemen and other law
officers watched them, would not sell in
a month what an open dispensary sells
in a day.
Some whisky would be imported for
personal consumption by well-to-do per
sons. Perhaps some is imported by
them now. This Imported whisky
would yield no revenue to the county,
but it would be consumed by the im
porters at their homes, and those who
drink only at home rarely give trouble.
It is not necessary for the police offi-1
cers to watch them and arrest them for
The argument is made that prohibi
tion deprives the poor man of hi?
whisky and leaves the rich man to get
his by express. This is true in some
measure. Those who think that the
poor man should not be robbed of the
inalienable right to squander his monev
for liquor, and to tank up freely, will
have to make all they can out of the
argument. We are quite aware that
prohibition takes away a good deal of
one's personal liberty. It is not Demo
cratic doctrine. We are free to say that
it is un-Democratic doctrine; but, al
though we set up to conduct a Demo
cratic newspaper, we do not claim
Democracy to be infallible, The dis
pensary system is even more un-Demo
cratic than is prohibition. The Demo
cratic idea is the unrestricted sale of
whisky, licenses to be imposed only for
purposes f revenue. The chief argu
ment for prohibition in this country is
the negro. The average negro is not
much more lcsponsible than a child.
Hence he is demoralized by the whisky
traffic. He makes no attempt to con
trol his appetite for it, and his useful
ness ns a laborer is greatly impaired.
Besides, his tendency to commit crimes
is multiplied. If there were no negroes
in Laurens county, and all tho people
were fairly well educated and law-abid
ing, we should be an advocate of the
sale of whisky, with as little restriction
about it as possible, because we think
it does more harm to make a few men
good by tying the hands of the whole
community than to suffer the presence
of an occasional inebriate. But we
have many more negroes in Laurens
than we have white people, and it is
not to be disputed that the sale of
whisky adds to the embarrassments of
the race question. Even the low-down
white man rarely sinks to the level of
the "no account" negro, except when
he is drunk, but whisky does cause the
white man to forget his race some
times. Every incident of that kind
damages the whole community.
The argument that the dispensary is
a good-paying institution is of course
an empty one. When a man buys a 40
cents bottle, let us say that the county
gets 10 cents profit. That 10 cents is
saved; it reduces the taxes. What be
comes of the whisky? When some poor
devil has drunk it is the county any
richer? Does the bottle of whisky cause
him to make more cotton and corn? But
if tho 40 cents be spent for meal or
calico it will help the man and his
family to live better and to do more.
It will help them to make more cotton
and corn. Whisky is a luxury, even if
it do not cause drunkenness. So is soda
water. Drinking soda water is very
pleasant, but it does not make the
world wealthier. Hence the money
spent for whisky in Laurens county is
money lost, money burned, money
thrown away. The county would be
richer at the end of the year with the
traffic abolished, even if it were neces
sary to raise $25,000 by taxation with
which to hire police officers to enforce
the law. Prohibition will take money
out of the county treasury, there is no
doubt about that; but it will leave a
great deal more money than there was
before in the pockets of the people.
If our dispensaries soil one hundred
thousand dollars' #orth of whisky a
year, and the profits be twenty thou
sand dollars, the county?that is, the
people of the county?lose eighty thou
sand dollars. The only question Is, do
they get eighty thousand dollars' worth
of "fun" or pleasure out of the
whisky? We think not.
We mako some money through our
dispensary out of our neighbors in
Spartanburg, Union and Greenwood.
This is net profit. If Laurens county
wishes to stay in the whiskey business
for the money that's in it, regardless
of the best interests of the people of
neighboring counties which have abol
ished dispensaries, all right; but that
is a low ambition. The less we say
about it the better; it isn't a very re
spectable thing to" admit. A dispensary
run to sell whisky to people whose coun
ties have banished them is, in morals,
no better than a blind tiger, because it
aids these other counties' people to
evade the law. Our local dispensaries,
however, are not run with this design.
The sale to outsiders is incidental. We
couldn't prevent it if we would, but
the sales to outsiders should not be an
argument for keeping?the liquor shops.
If anything, it is an argument to abol
ish them. We do not wish to lead our
1 brothers astray.
Finally, The Advertiser is not es
pecial'y interested in this matter.
There is something to be said on both
sides of the question. We don't think
anything less of a man who votes for
county dispensaries in Laurens. The
grog-shops (that's as good a name as
any, and just as clean and nice as dis
pensary) should be kept, if the people
want them, because if they want them
the prohibition law would certainly not
be enforced. Our preference for pro
hibition rests wholly upon tho belief
that public sentiment is sufficiently
Btrong in its favor to enforce prohibi
tion fairly well in Laurens county.

MR. JENKINS' HEADQUARTERS.
Laurens is especially fortdnate in be

his headquarters. In its farming oper
ations this county is one of the most
progressive in the State, and thi3 ar
rangement will afford tho farmers the
greatest facility for improvement.
The "tests" that will be carried on
under the supervision of Mr. Jenkins
will not be in the nature of "experi
ments." The experiments have already
been made by the government, and
this demonstration work is intended as
an object lesson for tho farmer. Very
few farmers have any respect for
"book farming." They say it looks
mighty well on paper, but it won't
"pan out." As the agent of the gov

African Methodist Conference.
Tho African Methodist Episcopal
Conference, which convened with Bethel
church last Wednesday morning, ad
journed Sunday night, after the read
ing of the appointments for another
year which were made by Bishop Cop
pin, who presided over the deliberations
of the sessions. The Conference se
lected Abbeville for next annual meet
The election of eleven clerical dele
gates from this Conference excited
great interest, and the balloting for
these representatives engaged Confer
ence through two sessions.
A notable feature of the sessions was
the financial report submitted. It
showed the total collections for the
year from all sources to have been
$8,998.42. Of this amount $2,793.47
goes to educational purposes, which
was raised during Conference week.
That truth is stranger than fiction,
has onco more been demonstrated in the
little town of Fedora, Tenn., the resi
dence of C. V. Pepper. He writes: "I
was in bed, entirely disabled with hem
orrhages rf the lungs and throat. Doc
tors failed to help me, and all hone had
fled when I began taking Dr. King's
New Discovery. Then instant relief
came. The coughing soon ceased: the
bleeding diminished rapidly, and in
three weeks I was able to go to work."

A FLOATING SNAIL.
Peculiar Way* of This Wonderful Lit
99 tlo Creature.
There la a small snail which is eo
fond of the sea that it never comes to
land, and it builds such a capital boat
for itself and its eggs that while large
ships are sinking nnd steamers are un
able to face tho' storm it tosses about
in perfect safety.
The little snnll is of a violet color
and Ib therefore called lanthlun. It
his a small shell, nud there projects
from tho upper port of tho body a long,
tonguelike piece of flesh. This is tho
raft, and it is built upou most scien
tific principles, for it has compart
ments in it for Mir. It Is broad nnd
the air compartments are underneath,
so that it cannot capsize.
Moreovor, tho snail knows how to
Btow away Its cargo, for tho oldest
eggs and those which hatch the Boom
est are placed In tho center and tho
lightest and newest on the sides of tho
raft. Tho lanthlnn fills Its own air
compartments by getting n globule of
air underneath Its heud. The body Is
then curved downward beneath the
raft, and, tho hend being tilted on one
side, the air rushes up and flits tho
spaces. It feeds on a beautiful Ilttlo
Jellyfish, which has a flat, raftlike
form with a pretty Ilttlo sail upon it,
aud they congregate In multitudes
when tho sea is calm.
Sometimes specimens are washed
upqri the northwestern coast of Franco,

Laws by Which the 8alo of Intoxicants
The Samlng system In Norway gives
power to municipalities to grant all
the retail spirit licenses which It deems
necessary to n company which would
blud itself to carry on the traffic In tho
interests of tuo community, with a
fixed annual return of not more than
5 per cent on Its paid up capital. In
establishing the systom the question
of compensation does not appear to
have presented much difficulty. When
the Samlng was introduced two kinds
of licenses were in existence?first,
those granted annually or for a term
not exceeding five years, nnd, second,
privileged licenses, granted for the life
of the Hconsee. In the case of the first
no compensation whatever was paid to
those dispossessed of tholr licenses.
In regard to tho latter compensation
was granted In the form of an annuity
equal to the average yearly profits for
the three years preceding tho suppres
sion of the llconso.
With these provisions the aims and
principles of the Samlng are summa
rized as follows: Tho elimination of
private profit nnd securing the monop
oly value for the public, Insuring high
est quality of liquors sold, tho reduc
tion of the number of licenses, the
easy enforcement of tho law, the de
struction of the power of tho Bplrlt
trade and the furtherance of all pro
gressive measures of reform. ? New

Actors Hava Been Known to DU From
Perhaps the most terrible malady
which can attack the actor In the
course of bis performance In the pe
culiar disease known as stage fright
Thronen Its evil effects Btrong men and
women have been known to faint,
break down and do many other queer
things, and there are even on record
several cases of people who have died
through this horrible selsuro.
Some years ago a young novice who
was to appear for the first time ar
rived at the theater very white and
shaky. Brandy being given him, he
appeared slightly better, but no sooner
had ho Bet his foot on the stage than
he clapped his hand to his heart, with
a low cry, and fell down dead. The
overwhelming sensation Induced by
stage fright had attacked his heart,
and his thoatrlcal career ended thus
even at its beginning.
Quito as ghastly was the caso of the
young amateur actress wh-\ strangely
enough, had nover experienced Btago
fright when playing with her follow
amateurs, but who was seized with tho
attack on making her first professional
appearance. Sho went through tho
scono aided by the prompter, her eyes
glazed, her bauds rigid, and when tho
exit came it proved her exit from life's
stago as well as the mimic boards, for
Bhe staggered to her dressing room and
fell into a comatose state, from which
Bhe nover recovered.
rcrhaps, however, the most peculiar
tnstauco of all was that of tho veterau
performer who had gone through thirty
years of stage work without experienc
ing this malady. One night, however,
ho confuted to a fellow player that a
qulto unaccountable nervousness had
suddenly taken hold of him and that ho
did not think ho could ever act again.
Ills coinrado laughed at the notion
and urged him to go on, as usual, but
his astonishment may well l>o conceiv
ed when the poor old player weut on
tho stage and, after making several
vain efforts to speak, fell back and ex
pired. The doctor who made tho post
mortem examination stated that death
was duo to failure of tho heart's action,
evidently Induced by tho presence of
an attack of stage fright.?Pearson's
Lord Forrors' Tragic Journey to tho
Famous Old Gnllows.
Park lane was Tyburn lane, and It
seems as If the gallows?described In
an old document as movable?at one
time stood at Its east corner. It was
there tho ferocious Lord Ferrers was
hung In 17150 for murdering his serv
ant. Horace Walpole'B words paint
the picture well: "He shamed heroes.
Ho bore the solemnity of a pompous
and tedious procession of above two
hours from the Tower to Tyburn with
as much tranquillity as If he were only
going to his own burial, not to bis own
execution." Aud when oue of the
dragoons of the procession was thrown
from his horse Lord Ferrers expressed
much concern and said, "I hope there |
Will be no death today but mine."
On went tho procession, with a mob
about it sufficient to make its progress
slow and laborious. Small wonder that
the age of Thackeray, with Thack
eray's help, set up its scaffolds within
four high walls. Asking for drink,
Lord Ferrers was refused, for, said the
sheriff, late regulations enjoined him
not to let prisoners drink while pass
ing from tho place of Imprisonment to
that of execution, great Indeceucles
having been committed by the drunk
enness of the criminals in tho hour of
execution. "And though," said he, "my
lord, I might think myself excusable
in overlooking this order out of regard
to your lordship's rank, yet there Is an
other reason, which, I am sure, will
weigh with you?your lordship Is sen
sible of the greatness of the crowd;
we must draw up at some tavern; the
confluence would bo so great that It
would delay the expedition which
your lordship seems so much to de
sire." But decency?so often paraded
by those who outrage it?ended with
the murderer's death. "The execution
ers fought for the rope, and the one
who lost It cried?tho greatest tragedy,
