Years ago, some wild animal made
its appearance in the Williamson
woods. Coon and opossum hunters
would run at it, and the varment
would back up against a tree or log,
ami whip out the whole pack of do^s.
If it once got a hold on a hound, and
bit and scratched it. all the Tight was
knocked out of the dog. And he
was ready to tuck his tale between his
hind legs and make for home. \\ bite
and black hunters with their never
known-to-be-whipped packs went to
capture the animal. But Invarlbly the
dogs got the worst of the llnht. Some
times the man would rush up with his
axe to help his dogs. The animal
would make such frantic leaps at him
that ho could not get in a blow of th;
axe. It was hunted so much that It
disappeared from this section. No
one ever saw the cat In day time to
see what kind of an animal it was.
That winter its visit had a whole

LIQUOR AND COCAINE.
I'M it oi- The Advertiser :
"The State," newspaper had already
"quickly seized upon" the suggestion
that "the sale of cocaine was pros
pering as a result of the abolition of
the whiskey traffic" in Laurens coun
ty. "The State" is in a class of news
papers that being of wide circula
tion and influence, are dreadfully in
the way of the cause of temperance.
"The State" seems to take pride in
piling up figures showing the extent
of the revenue in RIchland and Alken
from the sale of liquor, nor once does
it let fnll one line nor syllable in com
ment upon the fearful consequences
that follow Its sale.
Too well that paper knows that
along with this revenue must come
crime and bloodshed, sorrow, bereave
ment and desolation for many a home:
that the consequences of this sale of
liquor has already given RIchland and
Alken an unenviable and unsavory
reputation for all sorts of crime and
In my last I said, among other
things, In speaking of the use of li
quor and deadly drugs, "Who, that has
studied this question of the liquor and
drug habit that does not know that
they are retroactive, that the use of
the one will bring about the use of
the other?" About the same day this
was written, in delivering the opinion
of the'court In J. ('. Miller vs Hamil
ton Brown Shoe Company, S. C. Re
ports. Mr. Justice Woods, in comment
upon the use of liquor and drugs,
says: 'The knowledge is common to
all men. that tho use of drugs, popu
larly known as done, is very common
ly resorted to after periods of ex
treme Intoxication." Precisely. And
if there has been a recent increase in
resorting to dope, it may be very rea
sonably attributable, in a large mea
sure to the use of whiskey while the
dispensary was in vogue. Now that
the whiskey is removed, in a little
while the dope habit will grow less.
It seems that Maine has escaped a
return to the horrid nightmare of le
galized liquor selling, by a v -v nar
row margin. Let the friends of tem
perance, the church and Christian
forces take warning. The hosts of
vice and sin and crime, practice eter
nal vigicance, they sleep neither day
nor night. Talk about dope, talk about
Britain's opium trade in China, hide
ous and dreadful as they are. yet
amongst all the baleful agencies that
have ever been evolved from the
councils, of the dark caverns of hell
and then launched to carry crime,
sorrow, desolation, and woe un
utterable, amongst ithe children of
men, nothing can equal or approach
tho liquor traffic.

As he secured some of the most not-j
able indorsements to his theory. hc|
does not hesitate in saying that he
will positively guarantee IMoodine to |
cu.o stone in the bladder or any kid
ney or bladder trouble, no matter how
long you have been suffering. Ninety
seven per cent of the entire popula
tion of the United States are atllicted
with kidney or bladder trouble. In
the last seven years IMoodine has
cured 90 per cent of the cases that
have been treated with It.
Hundreds of cases of hemorrhage
of the bladder have been cured after
treatment in some of the leading hos
pitals have failed to even relie\e the
patient; We are therefore contidnt
that our theory of treating these cas
es with BlOOdlllO, is the only possible
manner in which such a large percen
tage of cases can he cured, that we
do not hesitate to guarantee, the c:ii
cienly of Blondine.
Mr. Hanson, the business manager,I
of the PostiU Telegraph and Cable
Co., of Blddeford, Maine, bad a stone
in the bladder removed with six and
one-half bottles of IMoodine. after be
ing told by all of the leading physi
cians In his vicinity that the only way
It could possibly be removed was by
an operation. We stand ready to fur
nish positive pi'OOf of the above state
ment to any one doubting the truth
of the same.
More than five million bottles of
IMoodine were sold in America last
year. Can ther.> be any greater evi
dence of merit than this unparalleled
snle of a scientific product No other
product has ever met with such as
tounding sales In so short a period,
and from a conservative estimate the
sales this year will reach ten mil
lion bottles. 2.880 bottles were sold
in a single day in Cleveland, Ohio;
2160 bottles were sold in Rochester,
N. Y., at the first day's Introductory
sale, and 1400 bottles in Paterson,
N. J? In one day. No scientific treat
ment has even attained such success
In America. We are now supplying
druggists with Bloodine, for the con
venience of those wishing to convince
themselves of Its merits. If your drug
gist does not have It, The Bloodine
Laboratories, Boston, Mass, will sup
ply you with a six weeks' treatment
