the said non-Intoxlcntlug beverages,
and has been notified that if he did
not do so ho would be prosecuted be
fore the Mayor of the said City for
every sale, that his beverages will be
seized and confiscated whenever re
Fourth. Plaintiff i? informed and
believes that It is the opinion of the
City Attorney for the said City and
also the Mayor of the said City of
Laurens that it is against tho law and
ordinances of the City of Laurens to
sell any drink containing alcohol, ev
en though the per cent is not sufficient
to cause Intoxication if drank to ex
cess, and, acting upon that opinion
and that advice, the defendant City of
Laurens, through its properly con
stituted officers have instructed the
police force to arrest and bring be
fore the Mayor for trial any and all
parties offering for sale within the
incorporate limits of the City of Lau
rens any drink containing alcohol, re
gardless of whether it will intoxi
cate if drank In excess, and to con
tinue to prosecute any such person
for any sale that he may make thereof.
Fifth. Plaintiff alleges on informa
tion and belief, that he has a right to
sell "near-beer" or any other bev
erage not containing a sufficient
umount of alcohol to intoxicate if
drunk to excess, just as he has the
right to sell soda water or other soft
drinks; that the said beverage Is
harmless; that If there is any ordi
nance in the City of Laurens, which
makes such sale a criminal offence, it
is null and void, since it Is In viola
tion of and inconsistent with the sta
tute law of the State; that to prevent
him from selling said drinks and bev
erages (not intoxicating if drunk to
excess, but containing alcohol) is to
deprivo him of his property rights,
and to prohibit the tiifllc in a legiti
mate article of Commerce, so recogniz
ed by the laws of the said State, which
right Is guaranteed to every citizen
under the Constitution of the State,
and of the United States of America;
becausethe ordinance is contrary to
and in conflict with the Act of 1909
known as the Dispensary Law. and
also In violation of Section Eleven,
Article Eight, of the Constitution of
South Carolina, because the ordinance
is unconstitutional and conflicts with
the laws of the State, in that it seeks
to confistlcate and seize the property
of a citizen without authority of law,
delegated or otherwise.
Five A. As a further basis for this
action and a further ground for test
ing the validity of any ordinance of
the City of Laurens which makes the
sale of any beverage not containing
a sufficient quality of alchol to In
toxicate If drunk to excess, plaintiff
alleges, upon information and belief;
it hat such ordinance Is in excess of the
police power of the said City of Lau
rens, that it is not necessary for the
health, peace, order or good govern
ment of said City, that it is unrea
sonable, that It Is not In harmony with
hut repugnant to the Statute law and
public policy of the State of South
Carolina governing the manufacture,
sale, etc., of liquors containing alcohol.
Six. That by reason of the prem
ises set forth in paragraphs three and
four herein, plaintiff Is prevented from
asserting and preserving his legal
right; would he harassed with n mul
tiplicity of prosecutions, and an ac
cumulation of fines and imprison
ment, should he undertake to contin
ue his business; that irreparable in
jury is being done him by reason of
the discontinuance of his business,
loss of trade and custom, expense In
maintaining his establlshmet, loss of
employment in his business upon
vhich he is dependant, and the loss
in value of his stock which he Is for
bidden to sell.
Seventh. Plaintiff alleges upon In
formation and believed that he has
no adequate remedy at law for the as
sertion and preservation of his legal
rights except by injunction.
Wherefore plaintiff prays judgment
against the defendants City of Lau
rens, Mayor and W. S. Bagwell, Chief
1. That the said defendants be en
Joined from interfering with the plain
tiff In the sale of any beverage which
if drunk to excess will not produce
intoxication, the sale of which is not
in any other respect illegal, and that
the said defendants, their agents and
servants, be enjoined from prosecut
ing him on account of Bald sale.
2nd. For such other and further
relief as to the Court seems just and

true according to an article published

stopping the hair from falling, but It
won't grow hair after the head is bald.
Ladles, look after your hair, destroy
the dandruff germs with PARISIAN
SAGE and dandruff will disappear. It
stops scalp Itch over n'ght and is guar
anteed to be the most refreshing, re
fined nnd agreeable hair dressing that
can be obtained. Sold by Laurens
