Oconee County and tho Dispensary.
OooDee is the latest county to vote out the dispensary and the majority of those voting was perhaps greater than thal in any other county yet ! voting. Following the usual pro cedure constables will likely be with drawn from the county, and follow ing the procedure further they will soon be sent back again.-Columbia Keoord. The records of the United States | Court show that fifteen ?pf Oeonee county's citizens were oonvioted of violations of the revenue laws dur ing the past term. It seem that the *siness was popular there in spile I the State dispensary, and now J that the latter bas been voted out,! it will hardly be fair to snatch up, the next man caught with a jug and ; start the cry that Oconee is breaking faith with the spirit of prohibition.- 1 Greenville News. Rev. Columbus Wardlaw, of Se neca, says the Anderson Mail of October 26tb, was in the city to-day. Mr. Wardlaw led the anti-dispensary fight in Oconee county, and natu rally he was feeling jubilant over the result of tho election. "Wo aro going to try to have real prohibition in Oconee," he said. "We have stopped the lege', salo of it. There is a strong public sentiment against the sale of whiskey-stronger than one might think-and it is going to tell. I regard the voting out of tho dispensary as just the beginning of f the fight against whiskey, but with a strong public sentiment behind us I think we will have no trouble in sup pressing the sale of whiskey in our county almoBt if not entirely. Any way, we are in the fight, and if the blind tigers start up in Oconee you are going to see something that will be worth watching." yi -.PISCES CURE FOR CONSUMPTION Hughes Was Insane. Edgefiold, Octohor 24.-Tho caso of Ashil I against the estato of li. B. Hughes, tho only caso of tho kind ever litigated in the state, terminated Saturday in a verdict for tho plaintiff in the sum of $05U. The maiu questions in the action wero whether or not Mr. Hughes, in a fit of insanity, exterminated his family, set tire to the house and then commit ted suicide. Tho verdict of the jury answers t liest) questions affirmatively. The public will recall tho fearful tragedy enacted at Trenton about a year ago. Mr. Hughes and family occupied tho house as tenants of Asbill, to whom the property belougod. The suit was to recovor the value of the residence, it being alleged that Mr. Hughes destroyed the samo by wilfully setting fire thereto. It was contended by plaintiffs that the taking of his and his family's lives was superinduced by financial troubles. A witness testified that at 1) o'clock of the day of the tragedy Mr. Hughes said to him: "I am'financially very much troub led, and the easiest way to got out o -iiiu h things is to take a pistol and shoot i ^it of it." ' Some fifteen of the deceased's friends testified that he was in good financial condition, and gave no evidence of being gloomy and despondent . The conditions surrounding tho bodies tho morning after tho fire wore minute'y described, and they pointed unerringly to Jio fact of Mr. Hughes hoing the au thor of the horrible affair.

Fresh air, ex ercise, nourishing food and Scott's Emulsion will come pretty near curing it, if there is anything to build on. Mil lions of people throughout the world are living and in good health on one lung. <][ From time immemorial the doctors prescribed cod liver oil for consumption. Of course the patient could not take it in its old form, hence it did very little good. They can take SCOTT'S EMULSION and tolerate it for a long time. There is no oil, not excepting butter, so easily digested and absorbed by the system as cod liver oil in the form of Scott's Emulsion, and that is the reason it is so helpful in consumption where its use must be continuous. ?| We will send you a sample free.

Percy Pybus Gets Fin? of $350. [Atlanta News, Ootobor 25.] Percy W. Pybus, the automobilist who waa driving the machine that struck and killed little Branch Lewie, Jr., several weeks ago, this morning pleaded guilty, under a consent ver dict arranged between the Superior Court jury and Solioitor Hill, to in voluntary manslaughter in the oom* mission of a lawful aot without due caution and circumspection, and was sentenced to serve twelve months on the chain gang or pay a fine of $350. The fine was paid. After hearing short arguments by Attorneys James L. Key and Reuben Arnold, for the defense, Judge Roan said : "Every person and vehicle or means of conveyance nae the privi leges of the streets, and every per son must look out for the safety and rights of others. Law, like other sciences, is progressive. The old laws and old lawyers did not have to consider things that we now have to adjust. The young man has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and I will have to fine him in accordance." Branch Lewis, whose son was killed, made the following statement to the court before Pybus was fined : "I do not think the killing of my son was intentional on the part of young Pybus, but I do think it was recklessness. What hurts me is that he ran 95 feet after my child was struck, when testimony of ex pert automobile drivers say that a machine can be stopped within 25 feet from where the brakes are applied. . Then he did not stop to see if my boy was hurt, but went on to oarry his girl to ride." Burton Smith, attorney for the prosecution, stated to the Court that Mr. Lewis had been approaohed by a large number of neighbors who had urged punishment as a lesson to reckless driving. Ile insisted on se vere punishment. ? Attorneys Key and Arnold argued to the court that Pybus greatly re gretted the killing of the Lewis child and that he had not had a day of happiness since the fearful acci dent. Pybus was asked if he oared to make a statement before sentence was imposed. Ile said : "I certainly regret that the acci dent occurred. I never intended killing anyone. This was the first accident that I have ever caused." Percy Pybus was accompanied in Court room by his father and several friends. As he made his statement his eyes moistened and careworn lines in his face showed clearly that he has been suffering intensely under a mental strain. Recorder Broyles had previously fined Pybus $100.75 for violating the ' city automobile ordinance in that he exceeded the speed limit. He was then bound over to the State Cot i on the charge of involuntary man slaughter in the commission of an unlawful act. Later tho grand jury indicted him on the charge for which he was bound over from the re corder's court. Lynching in North Carolina. Raleigh, N.
