* The Whiskey and Cocaine Trade. *
In your Issue of two weeks ago, un
der the bead of "The Whiskey and
Cocain TraJe" you say "Rs,iov;s come
frohl all ever the countv thit tho :.c
groes are using Cocaine, and in fact,
eome say it is actually taking t.'te
place of whiskey." Now those who
have watched the liquor questfon, and
the methods of the enemies of tem
perance or of prohibitive or restric
tive measures, for a long series of
years, are at no trouble to see that
you are mislead by the element that is
trying to make you think that the drug
habit is as bad as liquor. 1 have made
Inquiry of country doctors who tell
me that they know of no alarming use
nor increased use of cocaine since dis
pensary days. Who. that has studied
this question of the liquor and drug
habit that does not know that they
are retractive, that the use of the <>ne
will bring about the use of the other.
If the use of cocaine lias grown of
late, then with the open sale of liquor
it would increase ten times faster.
Now, let no one think that I would for
a moment minimize the evil of the
drug habit Nor say one word that
would lessen the effort to enforce the
law respecting the sale of deadly
drugs, nor fail to warn the young
against the terrors of becoming a vic
tim to their use, but let not the un
wary be deceived by their misleading
?wilfully misleading argument that
cocaine is taking the place of liquor,
and that the drug habit is making as
much crime as liquor caused in the
davs of its public sale.
Every one that has watched things
at the magistrate's court the mayor's
court in this city (where on every,'1
Monday morning, and on mornings
following public occasions, tho poor
victims of drink were hauled up and
compelled to nut up the hard-earned
money that ought to have gone to
wife and children) and the docket of
the court of sessions, know too well,
that all manner of crime, not only
breaches of the peace, assault and
battery and murder, but those Infa
mous crimes, burglary, arson, larceny
have since closing the dispensary,
been reduced beyond all expectation.
No it is not only on Fair days, but on
all days that law and order reigns in
Laurens. In the city? Yes, and to the
Apropos of the question. 1 go back
to the comments of the Columbia
State, to illustrate with what avidity
the enemies of temperance, or of re
restrlctlve measures, against liquor
will seize on everything of a mislead
ing character In a vala effort to prove
true the old thread-bare falsehood that
?'Prohibition docs not prohibit."
They who say such things mean
?hat prohibitory measures fail to bet
ter things or fail to lessen the use of
drink. Those who have lived long
enough to see the difference between
a community, or town, where liquor
is sold and where the sale is forbid
den by law, simply know that this Is
not true, or else his reasoning facul
ties are so utterly dull or stupid as to
render them incapable, or unfit to
j judge what Is or is not safe or best
'] for their country.
(f "The State" hasn't a good object
lesson showing the beauties of tho
c losed saloon, I don't know the reason.
Take the police, magistrate and ses
sions court records of the city of Co
lumbia and county, and those of Alken
with North Augusta and Horse Creek
Valley. (Would it be a had break to call
these two the banner counties for
crime and disorder?) and street and
highway scenes, and compare them
with Spai'tanbttrg, Laurens and other
counties and then answer.
If Maine has gone wrong you don't
have to go far to gel the reasons why.
i I have been pondering them some of
late. Among th ? lethargy of the church

; and Which never fails to use its ill
cotton gains to defeat prohibition or
restrictive laws, while proclaiming the
falsehood th.it they sell as much liquor
In prohibition territory as where the
sale is legalized. And then last, but
perhaps not least, that oceured to me,
is the great newspapers whose Influ
ence can so often, and so importun
ably be enlisted on the wrong side,
on the side of wrong against right.
In defense of error and against truth,
i for the oppressor against the oppress
ed, for thai which will pull down
against that which Will build Up. Those
newspapers tlint can he Induced by
some means to still proclaim in the
teeth of the facts that "Prohibition
does not prohibit."
Let The State take notice that, so
far as our own observation has gone.
that ihe days, both in town and coun
ty, have been "pleasant for the ladles
and children" ever since the closing
of the dispensary three years ago to
day in Laurens county.
Could money be hanked against
hopes, homes, happiness and peace,
a thousand million would be too low
to price the value of It.
"We ought therefore to give the
more earnest heed lest at any time we
let them slip."
Deafness Cannot b? Cured.
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to eure deaf
ness and that is by constitutional rem
edies. Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Bustachlan Tube. When this
tube Is inuamed you have a rumbling
Sound or imperfect hearing and when
il is entirely closed Deafness is the
result, and unless the Inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restor
ed to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever: nine casts
out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an Inflamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars

catarrh) that cannot be cured hy Halls
