THE LAW TO BE TESTED.
It is evident that statute prohi
biting the soliciting or receiving
of orders for liquor in this State
will be tested. At Laurens not
long ago a liquor drummer was
arrested for soliciting orders and
the matter is pending, and at
Greenwood last Thursday anoth
er ctrummer was arrested and his
trunk of samples was seized by
the sheriff. The outcome of these
cases will be watched with inter
est all over the State. At the
last session of the general assem
bly the writer irtroduced a bill
in the senate providng for a li
cense in each county for the so
liciting qf orders for liquor, but
this bill was amended so as to
prohibit the soliciting altogether,
making it a misdemeanor under
a heavy penalty. The bill intro
duced by the writer was drawn in
accordance with a decision of the
United States supreme court,
and if it had passed the license
would have been practically pro
hibitive and would have stood the
test of the courts; the ultra Pro
hibitionists however, regarded it
contrary to the principles of pro
hibition and went to the extreme
of putting upon the statutes a law
that is doubtful of holding. We
hope the two cases now in the
courts will be pressed with vigor
and if the present statute stands
it will put a stop to much of the
traffic in this State, but if it fails
to be sustained, then the whiskey
men will have a harvest and the
country will be infested with liq
uor drummers, not only so. local
men will become agents for these
concerns outside of the State and
it will be impossible to have a
semblance of prohibition, until
the legislature returns to a sane
handling of the matter. We would
much rather have liquor sold as
it was,than to permit agencies to
run giving no revenue and send
ing the money out of the county.
EIFORCE THE LAW oE QUIT.
If the authoritiesdo not enforce
the prohibition law in this con
ty any better than it is being en
forced, the thing will be worse
than a farce. It is no uncommon
sight to see men under the influ
ence of whiskey or something
else. The traffic in liquor is all
over the country. The fact is
wherever there is prohibition
very little effort is made to en
force the law. Occasionally a
friendless negro is pulled, but
rarely ever a white man,-and it
is our honest belief that where
one gallon of booze is sold by a
negro ten gallons is sold by or
for white men. Go where one
will and liquor is sold, the laxity
of the law's enforcement amounts
to but little more than a free li
cense. It is becoming disgusting
to realize how little concern is
given to a condition that is tast
becoming a nuisance, and which
the taxpayers are being made tc
suffer. Here we have liquor, or
it isso clanned bythose who haye
-opportunities to observe, all over
the country, especially outside of
the cities and towns, and very
little if any attempt is made tc
stop its sale. The result is, the
taxpayers are made to pay a
heavy tax, and the liquor dealers
are immune from the government
Either enforce the law, or let us
have a legalized system for the
sale of whiskey.

the system of tax dodging thai

STANDs ON HIS RIGS.
Senator Smith is standing on
his dignity with regard to the
Florence post office appointment.
The custom has been for a Sena

Master in his home town, but the
appointment of Mr. Kuker was a
recess appointment to succeed J.
E. Wilson, colored. Mr. Kuker
is a young gentleman of ability.
born in Florence, and is not ob
jectionable to the people of Flor
ence. at the same time, Senator
Smith has a preference, and was
not consulted by the appointing
power. which has been the cus
tom in the past, but to the custom
has been that the Senators have
al ways controlled their local post
office: such being the case Senator
Smith is opposed to the confirm
ation of Mr. Kuker.
We hope the junior Senator will
not complicate matters by object
ing to the contirmation, This is a
Republican administration, and
when a white appointment is made
especially after a colored man has
held the office so long, it may not
be good policy to stand out for
custom, unless the appointee is
personally objectionable. How

of Florence and on the ground at
Washington. hence he is the best
judge of what to do in the prem

SOME FINE RECIPES.
How to Salt and Smoke Bacon.
Pork or bacon is especially Iadapted to
salting and smoking: curing it renders
it more digestible and whlesome. In
the case of beef and other meats the di
gestibility and wholesomeness is dimin
ished by both salt and smoke. The gran
ular form of fat in bacon ii easy to .i
gest. and van be eaten by persons to
whom any other fat would be intoler
Scientific investigation hasshown that
the use of salt in preserving food has no
appreciable influence on health other
than favorable. Salting is probably the
oldest method known of preserving
meat It acts as a dehydrating agent on
leb, removing water retained in the
tissues of the animal body. It is mildly
antiseptic in its action. anid in this m-in
ner aids to preserve. Owing to the large
proportion of fat to lean, the fesh of the
hog does not take up salt as rapidly as
does other meats.
Just how long bog's flesh must be sub
mitted to the influence of salting must
be governed by various conditions. The
absorplion of salt is slower with hoas
having a greater proportion of fat than
is usual. The size, thickness. age and
weight of the flitches and hams must be
considered. Less time is required to
cure the meat in a damp cellar than a
drv room. The extremes of heat and
cold are unfavorable. Great heat is apt
to decompose the flesh before the sale
permeates it sufliciently to cure it.
When too cold, the meat juices become
set and the flesh gets too firm for the
salt to penetrate. The temperature of
the curing room should never exceed 60
Some believe that the flesh should be
rubbed with salt every day. This, how
ever, is only necessary for the first
thren days. It is only required that the
salt mixture be spread *irmly over the
flesh. In the case of large thick pieces.
or when the desh is very cold. it would
be advantageous to rub briskly. Ce
should be taken that the sale is pressed
into every depression, and well into the
hock ends, where the feet have been
cut off, and into the joints. To continue
the hard rubbing too long will result in
a hardened cured flesh.
Brown sugar is used in varying quan
tities with salt. in order to correct the
hardening influences of salt on the meat.
It also has a tendency to render the ba
con mellow, and increase its juiciness
and flavor. Sugar may also be classili
ed among the mild auxtiseptics as a meat
Saltpeter is used in curing. It possese
es antiseptic properties. but its use if
mainly to preserve the natural color of
the flesh. The natural color fades whet
salt alone is used, thus lessening the
attractiveness of the bacon. Too much
saltpetre will have the effect of unduly
toughening the meat. The quantitv
should be not more than one part to 2.
parts of salt.
In dry curing the following recipe it
Fine dairy salt .................50 lbs.
Brown sugar......... .......... 5 lbs.
Saltpetre (finely ground).... .. . 2 lbs

sides should be stacked. Alternate the
method of stacking so that the side or

14 days of this treatment, according t
size of side.

At the conclusion of the dry-salting
the flesh is brushed over to remove salt,
pieces of fat and flesh, and cleaned up.
The side is washed in rain water and
sosiced in a solution of bicorbonate oi
soda for 24 hours. This solution is made
by dissolving one pound of bicarbonate
of soda to 20 gallons of clean rain water.
This removes excessive saltiness and
makes the curing milder. Follow thit
by washing in clean rain water. The
meat edges and - bones are trimmed
again. All sharp points of bones, and

current of air for several days. The:
lightly rub olive oil over the skin and
