ser Order Served Upon County

J. W. Harmon, Plaintiff -
D. M. Miles in his own right and as
Supervisor of Spartanburg County,
and others. (Here follows a list of
managers of election.)
-The plaintiff complaining of the de
Ist. That the plaintiff is a citizen
of Spartanburg County, South Caro
lina, and has been for a number of
years next preceding this date; that
plaintiff owns both 'real and personal
property in the said county of Spar
tanburg on which plaintiff now pays
and hass"'been paying for a consider
able time next preceding this date
taxes tro the. said County of Spartan
burg and the State of South Carolina.
That in addition thereto plaintiff is
an officer of Spartantburg County,
holding the office of County Dispen
ser and drawing a salary from the
~tate for his services as such officer.
2nd. That the .defendant, D. M.
Miles, has ordered his co-defendants
in this case to hold an election upon
the question of "Dispensary" or "No
~ ~Dispensary" in the County of Spartan
burg on the 7th day of November,
3rd. That said defendants'have no
right to hold said election for the rea
son that the ord'er of t'he defendant,
~2 D. M. Miles .was null and void and im
providently issued for the reason
that no petition had ever been 'signed
by one-fourth of sthe qualified voters
of the county of Spartanburg asking
for an election upon either the ques
tion of the establishment or the re
moval of the dispensaries in the coun
ty of Spartanburg. That no such pe
tition as is required by Section 7 of
Acts of 1904 on page 486 i's now on file
with D. M. Miles, County Supervisor
of Spartanburg; and that no such pe
tition as contemplated and required
by said Section of said Statute htas
ever been filed at any time with the
said D. M. Miles.
4th. That the ac't of 19o4 No. 276
on pages 485, 486 an d 487 of th e acts
of 1904, is unconstitutional and null
and void for the following reason~s:
That the said act is for the purpose
Samongst other things of raising reve-1
nue, and originated in the Senate of
South Carolina and not in the House
o'Representatives as the Constitution
of South Carolina requires. I
5th. That if said election above re-t
ferred 'to should be held as ordered by
the said.D. M. Miles, and should re- HI
suit in favor of "No Dispensary" t
plaintiff would be required in the fu- I
L ture to pay out a considerable sum of
money in addition to the taxes p!ain- t
if nm ~a t3 pay to plaint'if's damn
been looking for
:very Plow guare
age in a very large sum of money, the
exact amount of which cannot be as
certained at this time, in addition
thereto plaintiff would be deprived of
his said office and his salary, therefor.
6th. That plaintiff has no adequat
remedy at law. That therefore he
would be driven to a multitude
of suits to maintain 'his rights
unless the defendants be restrained
from Iholding said election; that the
cost of said suits would be so very ex
pensive that plaintiff would be unable
to pay the necessary expenses of
same, by all of .which plaintiff would
suffer great and irreparable loss and
Wherefore plaintiff prays: First,
That The defendants each and all be
enjoined from holding said election
on the 7th day of November, 1905, or
that an order do issue requiring said
defendants to appear before Hon. J.
C. Klugh, Esq., circuit judge of Souch
Carolina, on Monday, Novem'ber 6th.

ants should not be enjoined from
holding said election, and for such
other and further relief as may be

Didn't Follow Instructions.
A -rather good story was related at a
)anque,t given in Lhe Masonic temple
. few nights ago. The speaker said
that a certain individual had expres's
d a desire to become associated with
dhe ord:er, and asked if it was true tha.t
Smember could travel the world over
'ree of cost, merely by giving one of
he many secret signs. Being answer
:d in the affirmative, he said that if
ts Masonic friend would confiden
ially give him a sign that would take
im to Pittsburg and return, withomt
eing required to purchase transporta
n he would join the order.
At the extremely

structed the candidate to raise his
hand to the right side of the head
whenever the conductor approached
him for his ticket, and learning the
train be was going to take, purchased
the transportation, explaining matters
to :the conductor of the train and
awraite-d developments. The candidate
for Masonic honors followed instruc
tions and all went well, of course, un
til he was coming back. As no return
ticket had been provided for he was
forced to pay his fare.
Naturally this made him angry, and
upon meeting the friend, he was not
in thie least backward in denouncing
him and the order.
"Did you follow the sign instcruc
tions I gave you?" was asked.
"I did," was the reply.
'?Wha t did you. do confing back.?"
"I placed my hand on 'the right
side of my head .and wigled my fin
"That's where you made a mistake.
You were returning and you should
have wiggled on thie left side."
He subsequently relented and be
came a member of the order.
"Gie Us A Lead."
Dean Hol-e in his book "More
Memories," tells an amusing story of
how an old woman go:t the better of
her clergyman in an- argument. 'Ihe,
village churchyard was overorowded
excep~t on its sunless northern side,
in .which the- suicide was buried. One
day th'e vicar, while visiting a poor old
oman who was nigh unto death,
thougiht he would try to get her con
sent to 'be buried inl t'he roomy north
ern plot. He began by assuring her
:thatc the common aversion to burial in
any particular poriton of consecpated
ground as a silly . prejudice and a
foolisih supe.rstitiion. Then he be
sought her, as a personal favor to
himself and a's an example to others,
to permit her body to be buried in the
northern plot of the churchyard.
The old woman thought it all over
for a few minutes and tihen answered,l
"Well sir, as you seem t~o think as one
pat of the churchyard is as good as
'another and that it makes not differ
ence where we be put, perhaps you'll
gie us a lead."
T'he vicar did not grasp the argu-.1
nient, but he changed the subject.
A good way to arouse anybody's
aonscience is to catch him.
A man has to get married to know
all the reasons he ought not to know.
A good many more girls can makeI
angel cake than know how to broil
A man's family can always save
money for him by not leaving him
any to spends.
Generally a man i's lucky if he t
goes to buy a 15 cent cigar -and finds
his wife has left him'enough change
in dis clothes for him to pay his car
ar if he doesn't buy a nickle cigar. (
