LAW OIVKN A BAP
State Baptist Convention Adepts Me
morial to Legislature, Praying for
Repeal of State Liquor Law.
Orangeburg, Dec. 7.?The State Bap
tist Convention, at its session tonight,
hit the Carey-Cothran law a severe rap,
and a memorial to the State Legisla
ture, praying that the law be repealed,
was adopted by a unanimous vote.
There can be no misunderstanding the
voice of the body. Congress is also to
be memorialized and petitioned to
amend the Inter-State commerce law
so as to prohibit shipping liquor into
dry territory, and to put a stop to the
iasuance of United -States licenses to
men living in dry territory. The re
port prayed for the passage of the Dol
liver-Littlefield bill now pending before
The following extracts are from the
petition to the State Legislature:
"Recent developments have disclosed
the fact that a county dispensary is
only a reproduction on a reduced scale
of the State dispensary. The county
dispensary, like the State institution,
is a centralized political power under
liquor domination. It is obnoxious to
democratic principles in its conception,
its character and its conduct.
"It is ever ready to impose itself up
on unwilling communities in the face
of petition and protest. It is alert, ac
tive and aggressive, and pushes the
sale of liquor as rapidly as possible,
and then boasts of its revenue. It does
not hesitate to resort to trickery in or
der to increase its traffic.and the Legis
lature is asked to repeal the Carey
Cothran law and enact in its stead a
prohibition law, and provide for its
The Convention decided that these
petitions should be presented by a com
mittee in person, and the following
were instructed, to present the two pe
titions in Washington and Columbia:
Charles A. Smith, John A. Brunson,
Louis Bristow, Simeon Hyde, B. J.
Woodward, J. H. Boldridge, H. L.

Good Cough Medicine for Children.
The season for coughs and colds is
now at hand, and too much care cannot
be used to protect the children. A child
is much mor^ likely to contract diph
theria or scarlet fever when he has a
cold. The quicker you cure his cold the
less the risk. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is the sole reliance of many
mothers, and few of those who have
tried it are willing to use any other.
Mrs. F. P. Starcher, of Ripley, W.
Va., says: "I have never used anything'
other than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy for my children, and it has
always given good satisfaction." This
remedy contain*- io opium or other nar
cotic, and maj oe jj-iven as confidently
to a child as to an adult. For sale by

I have used Chamberlain's Stomach
and Liver Tablets for some time, and

more good than any tablets I have ever

strengthen the stomach and improve
the digestion. They also regulate the
liver and bowels. They are far supe
rior to pills but cost no more. Get a
