Hot Lemonade for Grip.
lt may interest our readers to know
that during the great influenza epi
demic in London, in 1SS?),, the board of
health of that city advised the public
affected with th" disease to make an
abundant use of hot lemonade. The
perspiration caused thereby is in most
cases sufficient to relieve the patient
of severe colds, and saves him from
taking refuge in quinine or other
drugs. In bronchial troubles lemon
juice will relieve the irritation in the
throat, acting at the same time as a

devoutly hope the road will not stop
with the charter, but that it will be
speedily built. Saluda will be ever

The entertainment to be given for
the benefit of the S. C. C. I. Cadet
band on Thursday hight, the 16th

ni?ht, the 23rd inst. Prof. Brown will
deliver his great and original lecture
on "Kissing" on this occasion. There
will also be the best of music furnish
ed-vocal, piano, string band, bras%
band. The music itself - will be worth
the price of admission to say nothing
of the lecture, which is the richest
you ever heard. Let everybody come
out on this occasion and help the boys
pay for their instruments. See below
what the Columbia State says of Prof.
Brown's lecture :
Prof. Walter W. Brown's lecture on
"Kissing," delivered here last night,
was a masterful effort. The audience
made up in enthusiasm what it lacked
in numbers. The lecture is unlike
anything else heretofore produced
unique, original, none-such. Full of
wit, humor, ludicrous situations, it
keeps the hearers for an hour in up
ronous laughter * * * And it is
not all fun and laughter. There are
scenes of intense pathos, but nothing
morbid. There are beautiful pictures
of home and home-life, but nothing
offensively didactic. The lecture is, in
fact, a medley, which touches many
chords of our many-sided human na
ture, yet th?rs is perfect order and
symmetry, affording that pleasing
effect known as unity in variety.

little village is laid out regularly
in 'streets, with pretty" resi

verandas, bay windows, with
clambering rose vines. These
pretty houses in many cases are
set back from the street in groves
of live oak, magnolia, and cypress,

like grey lace shawls thrown up in
the trees and hanging in festoons.

also made a spicy speech in Wash

and received an ovation, and was
the trump card on that occasion.

STRONGEST OF THE SESSION
The fight against the dispensary
law is now on in the South Caro
lina Legislature in the shape of a
bill to leave the whole thing to the
people that they may vote for
either dispensary, local option
or anything else they wish. Sena
tor Sheppard's speech on this bill
is characterized a? follows by the
Greenville News :
Senator Sheppard made the
strongest speech heard in the1 sen
ate this session. He favored local
option pure and simple. He' is
not opposed to the dispensary but
he wants the people of each county
to say at the polls exactly what

interest to the people of the State"
as the. present one. He congratulat
ed the senate on the high plane on
which the debate had been cpu-,
ducted, and declared that the;
people of South Carolina, rmre
than the senators, were agita ed
on this question. They had boen
agitated sinpe, the dispensary law,
thrown from the legislative hoppr
like au apple of discord into th er

Sheppard said for these reasons he
would not have directed attention
to the questiou at this time, foi
he believed the more the dispensary
is let alone, the more surely if
failure bound lo crown its effortt
and ruin overtake those wh(
dabble in it. Since the euactmen

Not even the governors of the
State had escaped its fangs. Th(
more, he went on to say, any police
s resisted the more will it be oi
its good behavior. The dispensary
hasal ready shown its best features,
but he declared, "I say as ;a
fundamental principle of govern
mental policy that it is wrong. It
is wrong and destructive to the
public morals and the public
peace." How, he asked, can it
be right for the State to engage
in the sale of whiskey?. He
believed the time not far distant
when the courts would say that
the control of any monopoly by
a State is contrary to public policy.|
It is not the question of the
restoration of the barrooms, ex
plained Mr. Sheppard. There is
not a senator on the floor who
would hesitate on that questiou.
As all know the constitution ex
press-.)' forbids the sale of whiskey
to bedrunk on the premises. The
talk of barrooms being reopend,
he declared to be absurd.
Mr. Sheppard asserted that he
would not vote today for a bill: to

homes than any other cause knowu

best people in tho State were ar
rayed to drive whiskey from beyoDd
ils borders, and when he looked at
the ruin aud desolation which it
had. wrought he would not hesitate
to join them in tboir efforts if he
believed it practicable.
