T. How often and aptly physiolo gists quote from Cassio's excla mation in Othello-Shakespeare: "0, God, that men should put an enemy into their mouths to steal away their brains! That we should, with joy, revel,pleas ure and applause transform our selves into beasts! To be now a sensible man, and by-and-by a fool, and presently a beast! 0, strange! every inordinate cup is unblessed, and the ingredient is the devil." A practical observer can, at a glance at a man under the influ ence of alcoholics, determine to a ertainty how far his brain is under the immediate damaging affect of the drug. If he be noisy, boisterous, song [ul, glib, rich without money, hi larious, or proclaiming his great wisdom, or athletic powers, the observer knows that the upper nd greater mass of the brain, the cerebrum, is involved, as that is the seat of judgement or moral and intellectual faculties, ll of which are now manifestly weakened and thrown in discord. Next we see the victim unsteady taggering, tottering and falling. [t is now patent that the cerre bellum or lower portion of the reat mental organ, the brain, malled its base, is involved in the lamage, as there is centered the -ontrolling nerve influence over ;he muscular movements of the )ody. But at length the van uished subject is on his back - i th deep, heavy, sonorous areathing, when it is at once ap .arent that the medulla oblonga ;a or head of the spinal marrow s embraced in the poisonous rasp, and respiration is impair d, from the temporary paralysis )f the nerves which preside here over the muscles of respi ation. One reason for the silliness in ;ome men on a drunken spree, Lnd in others for the rage, ugli iess and quarrelsomeness,is that he brain is poisonedits albumen iardened, its blood vessels para ized and congested, thus unbal Lcing the mind, of which the >rain is the temple. It is a well established physio .ogical fact that alcohol scars the rain as the knife scars the skin, n that it enl-s rges the cells of ;he brain tissues, and from that nlarged state they never resume ;heir former normal condition, >ut remain as a latent tinder box, eady to ignite at the touch of he first spark. The reformed often feels after time that he is safe, having ~onquered his old enemy, but >ne drink now will show him ;hat he is not his own master, ut is again a slave to the old Lppetite. What a price for a Irink? So we see in this deranging process, alcohol first irritates ad disturbs equilibrium, then poisons and weakens the vaso notor nerve system, and finally produces almost deadly sedation, md quite often so. Under such ircumstances can it be possible hat men can long retain their aormal soundness of mind? Can :hey be stable thinkers? Yet 3hey often prove themselves so y the frequency of their lodg .ngs under the manager. To maintain its equilibrium, the rain must be supplied with lood free from any irritant pois >n, well oxegenated, which can 2t be when alcohol is taken into he system. The great. mass of he blood is water, and nature lemurs to the introduction of my other fluid as it is superfiu >us and must be expelled While the brain sgjffers, other >rgans dependant upon it for aerve force, suffer with it in the punishment. For instance, it is ao uncommon experience to neet an habitual drinker with runkard's blindness, technically nown as Amblyopia Potatorum, ~aused by want of proper nour .shment for the optic nerve, cans ng, primarily, a misty or cloudy appearance before the eves ren aering objects indistinct, which >ften increases to the degree of blindness. The writer has in u mind several cases which have 3me under his observation. Then to the drinker let me say, stop, think, ponder and weigh the consequences, then turn to the right and keep in the middle of the road. It is a cleverly proven fact that the habitual use of alcohol as a beverage cannot be indulged in even in very small quantities without injury to some of the bodily organism which will man ifest itself sooner or later. Some of the parts which are injured by even small doses of alcohol, are the general nervous system, particularly those nerves so closely connected with the brain, supplying the organs of hearing, of sight, of taste, of smelling, etc. Obervations and new experiments by scientists are constantly confirming these truths. Learned medical men all along down the ages have raised their warning voices against its use as a beverage, even before the Christian er'a and in every centu rv sice. No well-informed sphysician will for a moment (unless he has become a slave to the habit) con ten tha~t a man in ordinary health is in any way benefited by its use any more than dumb ani mals would be. Nor will it in any way accelerate the amount of mental or manual labors. Read what that eminent sur geon, Sir Henry Thompson, once said: "There is no single habit in this country which so much tends to deteriorate the qualities of the race, and so much disqual ifies it for endurance in that com petition which in the nature of things must exist." As a rule the drinker's judg ment is impaired, thus his appe tite is uncontrolled and drink seems to be the god he worships, and too otten it predominates his own physical condition and that of his children. Reason, judgment, conscience. pride, self-respect, regard fo-r loved ones and a general good name are all subordinated for that godappetite. Pain, disease, debility and brevity of life star ing him in the face at every step in his dissipated career seems to be no barrier in the way of the drunkard's appetite, regardless of the value of a vigorous stomach. pure blood, healthy nerves, a clear mind and sound judgment. Why is it that the majority of drinking men are not as keen of perception as the abstainer? Because of the enlarged brain cells above mentioned. Alcohol in the brain, that great "Dome of thought and palace of the soul," in its pranks among the nerves and tissues of that organ is as ruthless as the paw of a Wall street bear. The physical benefit of alcohol to a man is about as difficult to find as the jaw' to the mouth of a volcano or the face to the head of a river. Strange that with such glaring facts before us warning us of the danger of alcoholic indulgence,it has so many devotees. But it is only another of the surprising evidences that differ ent people arrive at differfnt conclusions from the same line of facts before them, just as di verse opinions are formed of a icture when viewed by two dif erent individuals. An artist once showed a gentleman a paint ing he had just finished. The gentleman said, "My good sir, you paint beautifully, you should never paint anything else than birds, those ostriches are most life-like. The distinguished artist turned to him saying, "These are not ostriches, they are angels." If a man is to be governed by appetite, the whole physical sys tem will become dwarfed and wrecked. Think for a moment what mankind would become if freed from the early infirmities and depleted constitutions conse uent upon our international in ulgences dictated by appetites nd passions, handed down through the ancestral line, tak ing new additions in their course hich like the mountain glacier, will by-and-by terminate in one tremendous avalanche and crash from its own accumulated weight. Providence has ordered that all animal natures shall thrive, improve, strengthen and surpass their. ancestors. But man, by yielding to appetites and passions thwarts God's primary designs and dwarfs his own kind. How careful he is to improve the stock of his dumb animals by keeping them up to' the demands of natures wise- laws. So too, have we improved the vegetable kingdom almost beyond concep tion, and still we strive on for greater perfection. Bute~ man alone of al] the earth sinks below his nature by yielding to appe tites and passions When the Sap Rises weak lungs should be careful. Coughs and colds are dangerous then.

"My mother has been a sufferer for many years with rheumatism," says W. H. Iarward of Husband, Pa. "At times she was unable to move at all, whie at all times walking was painful. I presented her with a bottle of Chamn berlain's Pain Balm and after a few ap plications she decided it was the most. wonderful pain reliever she had ever tried, in fact, she is never without it I now and is at all times able to walk. An occasional application of Pain Balm keeps away the pain she was formerly troubled with." For sale by The R. B. TL-ornena DuSTennsae M. Loryea, From Far Across the Sea. Manila, P. I.. April 3. 1904. Louis Appelt. Esq., 'Manning, S. C.: DEAR lrt. APPELT: I am glad to see you pcople are at last making some efforts to induce white immigration to Souti Carolina. I can't think of any thing that would be of more benefit to our State than for 30,000 or 40,000 white immigrants to move there within the next ten or fifteen years. I think now, after considerable travel over the West ern part of the United States, that South Carolina's natural advantages compare very favorably with much more prosperous States in that section, but I must admit that I believe that the greater prosperity there results from the fact that a Westerp farmer works twelve hours a day, six days in the week, twelve months of the year. I believe thrt Scandinavians would be the best immigrants, for the reason that they furnish the greatest per cent. cf farmers and dairymen of all the European immigrants that we get, and that is what South Carolina needs. If a comhaission from your Legislat ure, composed of farmers, would travel through the grain belt of the United States (Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, North and South Dakota) during har vest season, they would learn a good deal that would be of interest to South Carolina in regard to the selection of immigrants, for you know that about half of the population of that section is foreign born, mostly Germans and Scandinavians. I am a great admirer of the Scandi navians. During 1896 1 was employed as a laborer with a threshing machine and traveled through the country from Hutchinson, Kas., to Aberdeen, S. D., and had every opportunity to observe these people in their home life. They are sober, thrifty, law-abiding, healthy, hospitable and easily Americanized. A Swedish housewife can do her own cooking and washing, keep her house clean, milk six or eight cows. work in the garden, raise twins and keep in a good humor all the time. And I tell you the girls are worth looking at too. I see there is some opposition to the immigration idea, but I guess it comes principally from that class of men that never pay more than $1.39 taxes per year, all told, and who have never been further from home than Columbia. How any white South Carolinian, know ing the large majority of negroes in the State, can do otherwise than welcome a white settler is more thaJ can under stand, for no matter what race immi grants may be members of they can in course of events be assimilated, but the negro, never. I am no enemy of the negro, (but I believe the day will come when they will have to be separated from the whites. Of course many think in this era of good feeling is no time to bring up the "race question," but I believe the South's only absolute safe uard lies in a healthy white majority. Yours very truly, W.
