I A Visit From Col.
(From The 'Pickens Sentinel.)
"Well," remarked the eminent Col
onel J. Wallington 'Potts, as he wiped
the mud off of -his shoes on our im
ported Brussels carpet, eased himself
Into that 'handsome chair reserved for
the most distinguished visitors only,
leaned back and lighted one of our
$1.25 gold-lined ilavanas, "I see they
are going to send all the likker mak
ers, sellers and drinlkers to Jail, and
not let them Iimy out. What do you
think of it?"
Well," We replied, "We're been so
busy tryling to make enough coin to
pay our past due taxes that we haven't
had time to think about it. What (10
you think about ito
"I think," said the Colonel as he
illied the air full of high priced fra
granee, "it's a daimna poor plan. These
bere luke-warn prohibitionists are too
kind-hearted; they are too broad-mind
ed and easy; they take halfway meas
ures and don't zo far enouagh. I have
thought this thing over and have evolv
ed an ideal plan of settling a per:'lex
Ing problem. No man who makes Ilk
ker., sells likker, totes likker, drinks
likker, or who looks like he wants a
(1rink of thle (almnable delight of the
devil should be allowed to breathe the
sacred air of this religious; nation. le
should be shot and shot forthwith."
"llon't 'but' me," retorted J. Wall
ington, digging the point of our $47.80
fountain pen into the table; "I know
what you are 'going to say; but I tell
you I've got it all figured out and my
plan will work. It will empty our
jails, asylums, poor houses and re
formatories, reduce our court expelses
to nothing, and fill our public treas
ury so full of money that we will hav(
to find new ways to spend it. It wil
lengthen the lives of our people t<
such an extent tlat 'when a person die,
under 200 years of age the papers wil
refer to It as an 'unt-imely death.'
"I admnit it will decrease tle pol
iulation considerably. but It will rc
move only those heathen who do no
agree with us and whio are unfit as

sociates for us best e ill
make this portion of .the olde testl
sphere a fairly decent placo to dwell. t
My plan will absolutely stanip out the
demon rum, sometimes referred to by
the lower class as John Barleycorn,
and 'will therefore have the support of
all the best people.
"I know you are thinking that no
jury would condenL to death a per
son found with a small amount of lik
ker for his own use, -but right here is
where one of the beauties of my thor
oughly through-out plan comes in. One
of the weak points in this other pro
Posed plan is that few juries would
senu to the chaingang an otherwise
half-decent citizen just becauso he hart
a small phial of the essence of home
made fertilizer on his hip. Ulnder my
plan the culprit Would never get ol a
jury. Trials are a useless expense
any-way, and under the jury system
some guilty devil might escape his just
deserts. A jury might argue that any
-body who drinks the kind made these
days ought to be in the asylum instead
of on tho chaingang.
"All officers being the very high
lets type of citizenship, as you well
know, under my plan they would be
emnipowered to shoot, or otherwise exe
cute, "my person found or suspected of
making, selling, toting, drinking, or
asking about the aforesaid damnable
delight of the devil, commonly called
likker. And any persoin so executed
would be automatically find $100 for
the county, $200 for the state, $300 for
the United States, and if executed in
towil $100 for the town, and the exe
cuting oflicers should receive ole-ialf
the flncs so as to make it unnecessary
for him to execute more than one per
son a wek to make expenses.
"I tell you, mai, I've studied it all
out and it r'will work. Put this plan
to working and we will clean out all
I the uidesirable trash and us better
class of people will have some peace
- and a chance to maintain our dignity.
- What do you think of it?"
t "Why, Colonel," we replied, "you
