MRS. WM. ARCHER
Tells Mothers What To Do For
"My fourteen-year-old daughter was
very thin and delicate. She had a
bad cough so that I became very much
alarmed about her health. She was
nervous and did not sleep well, had
very little appetite and doctors did
not help her. Having heard so much
about Vlnol, I decided to give it a
trial. It has helped her wonderfully.
She can sleep all night now without
coughing once; in fact, her cough is
gone. Her appetite Is greatly Im
proved and she has gained in weight.
Vlnol Is a wonderful medicine, and I
will always Keep it in the house. I
wish every mother knew what Vinol
will do for delicate children." Mrs.
Wm. Archer, 223 Broadway, Long
Branch, N. J,

both young and old. We promise
to g*ive back your money In every
such case where Vlnol does not
benefit. This shows our faith, In Vinol

ACCUSED OF ARSON
Charged that He Set Fire to Bulld
lugs on His Premises in The Town
Of A ikon.
AJken/May 1G.?Capt. J. M. Richard
son, a candidate for adjutant general
three years ago, and until recently ai
member if the staff of the governor,
was arrested today on a warrant
charging him with arson. The war
rant was sworn out by 13. A. Whar
ton, a deputy from the office of F. H.
McMastcr, State Insurance commis
Before daybreak Saturday morn
ing, April '9, a barn and storehouse
belonging to Mrs. J. M. Richardson
were destroyed by lire. The. buiuld
ings destriyed were on the lot on
which the Richardsons reside, in ad
dition to this being the third fire on
the Richardsons premises within the
past few years, an affidavit made by
Martha Frazier, a negro woman, al
leges that on Thursday, a few days
before the fire, she stored With Capt.
Richardson a lot of furniture and
household goods; that the morning
ufter the fire she was told by Capt.
Richardson that her goods had been
destroyed; that learning that her ef
fects had been removed the day be
fore the fire to Capt. Richardson's
farm a few miles in the country, she
located these and under claim and
delivered proceedings regained posses
sion of them. Richardson had in
surance in the sum of $600 which he
collected without difficulty.
Deputy Wharton has been in Alken
investigating events connected with
the fire for the past week or,ten days.
Capt. Richardson was placed in
jail today and stated late this after
noon that the charges against him are
only a "frame up." Ife attributes bis
arrest to politic.ts and prosecution.
He states that the furniture which
the Frazier woman stored with him
had been taken under a mortgage
held by R. B. Carter, but that the
woman had paid the mortgage and
he had endeavored to get her to move
her goods, and explained that a
part of her goods had been removed to
his farm several months ago because
he had no room for them in town.
Until a short while ago Capt. Rich
ardson was commander of the local
military company;, the Alken Rifles,
which was mustered out of service a
few months ngo. In the buildings
which were burned he had stored a
lot of property belonging to the niili
tary company, and when the firemen
arrived they were prevented from
lighting the fire by the explosion of a
large number of cartridges which en
dangered their lives. Capt. Richard
son sustained slight. injury by the
explosion of one of these cartridges.
A preliminary hearing will be held
tjclr/ourow morning at which time
Capt. Richardson will apply for bail.

CAN SHIP WHISKEY
FOR PERSONAL USE
Supreme Courts Holds that Webb Luvt
Hoes not Prohibit Shipping of Whis
key into this State for Personal use.
Columbia, May 15.?That there is
uo statute by the State of South Caro
lina prohibiting the importation of
whiskey from another State for per
sonal use and that the Webb act
gives the State the right to enact
such a statute. If it so desires, is the
decision of the supreme court In de
ciding a case testing the constitution
ality or the Webb act which was pass
ed by Congress, withdrawing the pro
tection of interstate commerce from
whiskey shipments from one state to
toother, The supreme ecyirt held
that the old dispensary act forbidding
the ordering of whiskey for personal
use from other. States, - having heen
declared unconstitutional, before the
passage of Jthe Webb act, could not be
vitalized by the passage of the Webb
Intention of Aet.
"it is not the intention of the
Webb act to interfere with the pol
icy of the State In regard to the im
portation of liquor but meroly to pro
vide that the enforcement of a State
statute would not be interfered with
or hampered by th-a Interstate com
merce laws," says the decision.
"In other words, the act in this
respect is passive, ' continue* the de
cision, "while it is Incumbent on the
State to enact logiskuion of an ac
tive nature If they are desirous of
prohibiting the importation of liquors
for personal use or other purposes,
hut even if congress had undertaken
to give validity to an unconstitutional
State statute it would h.ivo bo.OU be
yond its powers.
Power of Legislature.
"While the legislature can not pass
an aet, validating .the provisions of
the dispensary statute which wo have
declared to be unconstitutional, so
to give it a retroactive effetit,
nevertheless, has the power to adopt
a statute with similar provisions hav
ing a prospective effect, prohibiting
alcoholic liquors from being Import
ed into this State.
"Such ;i statute would not contra
vene any provision of the United
States constitution. As we have al
ready said, the recent act of congress
divests intoxicating liquors of their
interstate commerce character and
invests the respective States with
power either to prohibit the importa
tion absolutely or allow it only for
sale and use throubh a dispensary.
The classification of the counties, so
as to allow the sale of liquor in some
of them while it is not prohibited in
others, would not he; vlolatlve of sec
tion 1 of the 1 Ith amendment to the
constitution of the United States
which provides that, no State shall
deny to any person within its juris
diction the nil protection of the
Case From ltichland.
The case arose in Rlchland county
through W. W. Atkinson bringing
a suit to secure an Injunction against
the Southern Express Company from
enforcing its order refusing to deliver
shipments of whiskey in South Car
olina for personal use. The Injunc
tion was granted by the court, the
decision being written by Chief Jus
tice Gary and concurred In by As
sociate Justices Woods, Hydrlck and
Watts. Associate Justice Fraser says:
"I concede that the above statement
so strongly made is correct, but I
dissent from the judgment. The reg
ulation complained of In the petition
refers exclusively to interstate com
merce, and I think this court has no
jurisdiction to Interfere."
A test case was brought under the
same conditions In Kershaw county
and the eou/t granted the injunction
in thi;5 case on the same grounds as
that from Rlchland.- -The State.

We are oft times made to wonder
why there are always lorge crowds

go out to church. But when the words
of Christ testify that "but few walk In
