Madden. July 10.?On Wednesday
ovening last, to listening, waiting ears
there fell the sound of the patter of
the rain and the drouth was broken!
As the little boy lay stretched on
the farm houue piazza he remarked:
""This is the finest music I ever >eard"
"Yes", echoed the little girl "it beats
Skovgaard!" Again on Sunday after
noon we had another season and the
hoarts of the farmers are rejoicing
and tee sound of the sowing of peas
is heard in the land.
One day last week our friend and
neighbor. Mr. John It. FInley had the
misfortune to run into a?not a hon
et':; nest, but some thing equally as
bad?a humble bee's nest, and was
right badly stung about the head and
neck. The over exertion caused by
lighting the bees together with the
Stings and the intense heat, caused
him to be. for a short while, right sick.

JUST EIGiiT LINES.
Just eight lines was the present

term of court, closing with "We com

which was in the days of the dispen
Those who are willinr >.o learn
something about the difference in lo
calities where there is still open pub
lic sale of liquor and those where it
is forbidden may do so by comparing
Laurens with localities such as Aiken
and Columbia. Doth of the last nam
ed have dispensaries. Just a little
while ago we noticed the long list of
murders and other heinous and das
tardly crimes on the court docket In
Aiken. She has dispensaries at the
county seat, at North Augusta, and
perhaps at other places. She is in
clined to boast of revenue from the
sale of liquor, but lo! see her bring
ing the handcuffed victims of the
bloody brawls and arraign them at
the bar for trial.
Columbia and Riehland has enough
of crime to keep them in the class of
those communities that are Buffering
trom the inevitable fruits of the lega
lized sale of liquor.
There has never been a time when
law and order prevailed in Lau tens
as it does now. The rural police are
doing a vast amount of good. If they
should never put a dollar In the
treasury of the county they would be
cheap, when we consider the good or
der prevailing, so much of which is
due to their efforts. Who would
count dollars a. i cents against mor
ality law and order?
There is an oi l saying ' There are
exceptions to all rules" but it never
was true. It is a rule and to this rule
there is no exception ? that the rec
ords of the counts, taken from tin1
lowest to the highest, will show the
volumne of crime and disorder with
which society is afflicted It is similar
to a barometer, showing the rise and
fall of vice, crinn; and lawlessness.
Take the police court of the City of
LaureU3, take the several magistrates
courts, with the court of sessions and
you will have a showing of reduction
of crimes and disorder compared
with dispensary days that goes far
beyond the expectations of the most
ardent and sanguine temperance ad
vocate that worked for the closing of
tlW old dispensary. Here is an
everyday object lesson that It does
seem that no one, no matter how much
he maw have doubted'.and voted be
fore, could fail to see. The truth is
they do see it, but just hate to give
Every now and then some poor fel
low will try to do something smart
by asking what has become of the law
and order league. My dear friend
there is plenty of life in this organiza
tion if it should be needed. The truth
is the laws have been so well enforc
ed that there has never been one sin
gle occasion for it., interference. Us
chief object was to put down the traf
fic in liquor, which is and ever has
been the cause of more crime and vice
than all the other causes combined,
and it has been put down.
Let temperance workers take cour

achieved in the last ten years than in
a century before.

SWIFT POSTMEN OF VENICE
They Are Clever In Dodging the
Canals and Know Every Street
Probably the letter carriers of Ven
ice are the most Ingenious In the
world. They know how to dodge
every waterway, turning up on their
routes with n precise regularity that
convinces you they have mapped
every scrap of the damp city's dry
land on their brains. If you go to
your destination by gondola they can
beat you thereto by a good bit of
time. What thoy know about canals
has been applied by them to naviga
tion on land and they know every
tiny street In the city.
Of course, there are postofflce gon
dolas, too. gay yellow things that
quite OUtcolor the yellow sunlight, and

of the Rialto you will see them fas
