health has been steadily declining

separation, as her condition was
not alarming until neat the end.
While Miss Scurry mingled but lit

Cigarettes for Minors.
There are a great many people
who, upon reading about the recent
fining of a man and his wife in Spar
tanburg county for selling cigarettes
to minors, seem to have gotten the
idea that these fines were imposed
un^der a local law applicable to Spar
tanburg county alone; but in this
they are mistaken. The law applies
to the whole state, and is found in
section 420 of the criminal code of
1912, as follows:
"It shall not be lawful for any
persons or pers?ns, either by himself
or themselves, to sell, furnish, give,
or .provide any minor or minors un
der the age of 18 years, with cigar
ettes, tobacco, cigarette papers, or
any substitute therefor. Any person
oj,- persons violating the provisions
Br the preceding section, either in
person, or by agent or in any other
way, shall be held and deemed guilty
of, a misdemeanor, and, upon indict
ment and conviction therefor, shall
be punished by a fine not exceeding
one hundred dollars, or by imprison
ment for a term of not more than
one year nor less than two months,
or. both, in the discretion of the
court; one-half of the fine imposed
to,be paid to the informer of the of
fense, and the other half to be paid
to the treasurer of the county in
which conviction shall be held."
There did business in Yorkville a
few years ago a merchant whose
aversion to cigarettes was so great
that he did not care much to sell
them to anybody. He had a part
ner, however, who did not share his
feelings on the subject and he had
to sell cigarettes to keep peace. But
when he learned of the law prohi
biting the sale of cigarettes to min
ora, he had his inning. He pasted I
the law on a card and put it on his
showcase in a position where it could
readily be seen, and whenever a
sallow-facd, attenuated little cigar
ette fiend came into his store for
either the manufactured article or
the makings, he took special pleasure
in reading the law and telling the
youngster to go along.
During his membership in the
General Assembly Mr. S. H. Epps,
of this county made especial efforts
to get through a law prohibiting the
sale of cigarettes and cigarette pa
pers in South Carolina; but each
time he made the effort a lobby of
cigarette manufacturers appeared in
sufficient force to defeat his propos
ed measure.-Yorkville Enquirer.
