Trouble in South Carolina. ,
There is a good many people in
Kansas who believe that the sale
of intoxicating liquor, ought to be
in the bands of the state.
Thetherory is that the state will
finish absolutely, pure liquor .for
the purposes provided by law.
Second, that there will be no
element of gain in the transaction,
all profit being eliminated c by the
state. ' .
It is supposed that if there were
noprot in the sale, there would
be no object in the state agent ap
pointed to sell the liquor c for the
state to sell except to such persons as
are really entitled to buy.
Now that seems Uke a reasonable
theory. We have been inclined to
fall in with it.
But the word that comes from
South Carolina tends to knock out
our confidence in the plan.
The Carolinians are complaining
that the law is being violated right
They also claim that the state
does not furnish pure liquors, that
there is a great graft in the business
and therefore they ask that the law
be repealed.

Chigres and How to Kill Tnem.
When you see a man reach down
and thoughtfully caress his legs it's
chigres.. When you see a lady re
arrange her skirts and casuallyj rub
her underpinning, it's -chigtes. The
children look like they had smallpox
in the legs when they undress nights
its chigres.
A chigre is a pesky little flea that
puts in his spare time roosting in the I
grass, waiting for a likely pair of legs
to light on. His preference is for the
female variety and he hailsjwith great
joy thf ' open work stockings so
fashionable at this time. ' '
He works along until he finds a
garter or some other snug fitting place
in one's clothing, against which he
can brace his hind feet, and then he
burrows. Singl they excite consider
able discomfort, and if a she, -hen
snugly in under the skin, takes ad
vantage of the sheltered situation, as
females are prOne to do to raise a
family, often the cause of ulcerous,
ugly sores.
Chigres, in their make up, afford
an easy way to kill them. cThey
breathe through pores, and the
stoppage of the poies means death to
them. Grease is always fatal. For the
ladies sweet cream is recommended;
for men,' kerosene and one-third fresh
lard, mixed; for boys, a bit ot fat
bacon rind. In every Case the unguent
must be well rubbed in, as it is only
effectual when the insect gets if all
over him. To dry up the .spots and
allay itching, camphor or witch haze!
is good. Where the mother insect
has gone to, family raiding
probably the better remedy is the
kerosene and lard; as it is more
penetrating. Sterling Journal.

stand in the court yard .park and en
tertained the crowds for an hour.
E'linwood has . just cause to be
proud of of her brass band, and the
