BUCKS UNCLE SAM
Scorns to Think that the United States
Government is Going to Flood South
Carolina with Mean Liquor.
Governor Hlease, in a letter address
ed to every sheriff in South Carolina,
including Sheriff Owings, calls on them
to seize all contraband liquor which is
sold by I'tmed Slates ofllcers, as con
traband, as soon as It Is in the hands
of the purchaser. This action of the
Governor is taken following the decis- J
ion of Federal Judge Smith that Uni
ted States revenue olllcers have a right
to sell liquor seized by them in this
State at public auction, as was done
by Deputy Scruggs at Walhalla recent
ly. The letter of the Governor fol-1
Iteusoiis for Position.
"If at any time an agent or ofllcer of
the United States Government adver
tises that he is going to have a sale of
whiskey at any point within your coun
ty, you are hereby directed and com
manded to be personally present at the
place of the said sale, and when the
same takeB place, and the contraband
whiskey, which Is sold as such by the
United States Government, is delivered
to the purchaser, you seize immediately
the said whiskey, beer, wine or other
alcoholic liquors, under and in accord
ance with the provisions of the laws]
of the State of South Carolina. It may
be lawful for an olllcer of the United
States Government to sell whiskey
within the State of South Carolina oth
erwise than Is provided by our State |
laws (but I for one do not believe it;)
however, we will bow to the decision
of the Court until reversed, but when
the United States Government sells
this whiskey, etc, he who purchases it,
becomes the owner of and in possession
of contraband liquors, which is pro
hibited by our statute laws, because if I
it were not contraband the United
States Government would not be sell
ing it; for, they seize it as such. There-1
fore, under the law of our state, when
the whiskey, or other Intoxicating li
quors is delivered to the purchaser he
then becomes the owner and is in pos
s sslon of the contraband, In direct]
violation of our statute laws. There
fore, when the United States Govern
ment olllcers make their sale, as soon
as the stuff is put into the hands of
the purchaser you are hereby direct
ed nnd commanded to immediately
seize it as contraband, and if any ac-1
tion is brought against you, either civ
il or criminal, you will immediately
communicate with this oilice and I
will take proper steps to have your
Won't Stand for It.
"Do not fall In this matter. I desire
to conflict between the State and the
United States Government, *>ut I do
not propose to allow the llroding of
this state with whiskey under a pre
tence of law; when these Government
seizures are sold, the goods will be
purchased and resold by blind tigers
throughout the State, which I know
is prohibited by our statute laws, and
the United States Government should
not lend its assistance, through its of
ficers, to any such illegal or Illicit traf
fic and I do not propose to stand for |
it so far as 1 am concerned.
"Therefore, when the sale Is made
and the stuff is delivered into the
hands of the purchaser, seize your
prisoner for having in his possession
contraband whiskey, and also seize the
goods as contraband, and hold both un
til they be released by due process of|
"Failure on your part to carry out
these Instructions will be dealt with
In no uncertain way.
"We desire no conflict, but the dig
nity of the law of this State must be j
preserved and will be."

The vivid selection by Buiwer-Lytton

the best ,liked by the hearers.
Miss Browning is to be congratulat

creasing and strengthen its freight
traffic agencies In the North and West
the Southern Railway Company is
pursuing a policy that will be of ma
terial aid in extending and opening
up markets for the products of the
Southeastern States. The company has
regularly maintained freight traffic
representatives in the eastern and
central Northern states. Its organiza
tion in this territory has recently been
strengthened by the appointment of
commercial agents at Buffalo, New
York. Detroit, Michigan; and Beoria,
Illinois. Heretofore its freight traf
fic agencies west of Chicago and St.
Louis have been limited to a general
agent at Denver, Col\*adK and a
commercial agent at San Francisco,
I California. The great northwestern
field has not been occupied.
President FInley is personally fa
miliar with the opportunities for a
larger business between the South
east and the Northwest, and, by his
direction, commercial agencies have
been established at Omaha, Nebraska;
Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Seattle,
Washington. At the same time the
representation of the company in Cal
ifornia has been increased by the es
tablishment of a commercial agency
at Los Angeles.
One of the most Important duties of
these agents will be the development
of traffic from the territory traversed
by the lines of the Southrn Railway
Company into the territories in which
tiny are located. With this end in
view they will disseminate informa
tion relative to the products of the
Southeast and aid as far as practica

What makes you nervous? It is the weakness of your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break down, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this upl Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by going to the

Mrs. Grace Fortner, of Man, W. Va., took Cardui.
This Is what she says about It: "I was ?0 weak and
nervous, I could not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, 1 am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and I cannot say enough for Cardui, for I
know It saved my life." It is the best tonic for women.
