IN AND ABOUT
We are working on our special edi
tion to be issued next week. The vast
amount of work and worry connected
with issuing a paper like we propose
to send out has made it necessary to
employ extra help and put in extra
hours, but the present indications are
favorable to it being the best eversant
out from a Lancaster office. The bus
iness man are availing themselves of
the opportunity of getting thair wares
before the people and are bringing in
their ads. A few refuse to get in the
band wagon, prefering the tail end of
the procassion of progress. As it will
ba impossible to see everybody, these
wanting spaca had better speak at
once. Fifteen hundred extra copies
will be printed and sent out Judge

maj irity of 121. The Whisky people,

gaged able counsel, and say they will
fight to the bitter on 1. Money and
whisky furnished by Louisville and
Cincinnati brewers and distillers were
freely used in the election, notwith
standing the Christian women and the
ministers of the city stayed at the
pools all day in the cold, buttonhol
ing and pleading with the voters.

Judging from the big victories won
by the temperance poople in various
towns recently, the saloon is fast los
ing its grip. Somerset, Monticello,
Richmond, and, in fact, ever- other
town voting on the question, went dry
by largo mnjorities. 'Jen or fifteen
years ago a fellow could get on an oc
casional jag and keep up his work, but
in recent days drinking and business
will come no nearer mixing than will
oil and water. We do not know
whether it is the qualitv or not, but
we d know "from pretty good author
ity" that a fellow ctn't keep his tank
full of whiskey and do anything else
at the same time in these davs.
