WILSON Well Known in This and Adjoining Counties, Whose Mind Was Un* balanced, Drank Garbollc Add and Died Prom the Effects Thereof. Becoming tired of this world on aocounl of financial reverses and domestic troubles, Ben P. Wilson, a prominent citizen of this place, drank a quantity of diluted car bolic acid Wednesday uighl and died from the effeots thereof about 11:30 o’clock Thursday morning. It is thought that his mind had been affected for some time, he having received a severe injury a few years sinoe by being struck on the bead with a cinder; but no one thought his brain had become dis tracted to such an extent as to cause him to commit suicide. Mr. Wilson retired to his room at the Wilson house as usual Wednesday night, but about eleven o’clock the sounds of heavy breath ing were heard eminating fioin his room, when bis daughter, Miss Lee, was summoned. LTpon goiinr into her father’s chamber she dis covered him unconscious. She im mediately sent for Doctors Bruns and Shirley. The physicians re sponded and administered every thing known to medical skill to kill the effects of the deadly potion; but in this they were unsuccessful, the patient <1ying about halt past eleven o'clock Thursday morning. I he deadly dranght was secured from a drug store at Ashland, Ky. After draining the phial of its con tents Mr. Wilson threw the bottle and glass oul a window, probably thinking those who found him would believe he bad died from heart trouble, etc. Mr. Wilson left a note to his wife, from whom he bad separated, asking her to oolleot the insurance carried by him and with it pay all his debts. He carried a }3,000 certificate in the Modern Woodmen of America, made payable to his son, Franklin, while it is known that he also car ried about four thousand dollars in other oompanies, among them be* ing the Prudential. To whom these policies are made payable has not been made public at this writ ing. Ben Wilson was a man who was always glad to extend a favor to anyona. Many instances might be cited where a friend wishing to borrow money and Mr. Wilson not having the amount on his person at the time would go aud secure it for him. The bo *y was tenderly laid to rest last Sundiy afternoon in the Wilson family cemetery, about two and a half miles east ot this place. The services were conducted by Rev. Richard Wood, assisted by Rev. B S. Akers, after which Ceredo Camp, No. 7117, Modern Woodmen of America, the lodge of which the deceased was a member, took charge and the burial ceremonies of the or der were impressively enacted at the grave. The funerai was largely attended and the floral offerings were numeroustand beautiful. — ♦!» S Parking Aggaulted. P. P. Parkins, a popular yonngman who has for some time been working in the pole yard at this place, was assault ed by Andy Thompson (who formerly lived at Brownstown) last Saturday at Huntington and if the lick had landed a fraction of an inch lower on the head wonld have killed him. As it was he has a bad wonnd. Parkins had gone to Hnntington to inspect some poles and discovered that some one had been catting off the brand and making posts ont of the poles. He was stooping over examining a pole whenThompson.lt is alleged, slipped op behind him and struck him a terrific blow on the back of the head with a loaded cane, after which he fThomp son) jumped in a skiff and went to Ohio. He returned to Huntington Monday and was arrested and fined five dollars by 'Squire Gregory for the offense, and in default of payment was sent to jail for ten days. Thompson would have been prosecut ed on the charge of cutting the brand from the poles, but the state learned the brand had never been registered and was compelled to drop the prosecution.

Editor Advance: I uoticed iu the Advance of the Sid lust au article “Sin of Iutemperauco.*' That letter was worthy of ita spac * ou the froQt page, aud I ouly wish there were more citizeua who could see like that writer. 1 believe a man is responsible to his Creator for bringing about a condition that is uot best for all th «• aroun 1 him. No man has the moral or legal right to place bad intlueuces before his fellow man, especially trhen the greatest suf ferers are the in'auts and children, who are to take the places of their fathers and mothers iu shaping the course of this country and the destiny of their own souls. There has been enough said through the press to convince any one iu the matter of economy. Take the records of auy well governed city or community aud they will show that it co*ts more money to run the government with the grog traffic than it does the munici pality without the saloon. Tho revenue collected will run short of the extra po licing and the prosecuting of criminals caused directly or indirectly from whis ky. But the money view is of the least value Take the records of your reform school, jails, peniteutiary ami asylums, besides 75 per cent, of the dwarfs, ment ally aud physically, and you oau truce the cause thereof bacic to the iudueuoe aud workings of strong drink . As a rule the saloon has the fast, glit tering iuducemeuts to lure the boy from the path his mother has so faithfully en deavored to implaut iu his mind and heart. But mice in the saloon, then to the lewd parlors in the rear; from there to the drunkard’s and gambler’s hell, which has destroyed more men and wo men than any other cuuse on earth,* This leads to where all may see if they will only look—90 percent, of all the poverty , misery aud disease of the hu man family today. It does not stop with this. It has cropt into the poli tics of this the greatest country on earth and at times has clogged the wheels of progress It has lobbied around the law-making bodies and iu a large meas ure shaped the tone of the laws to gov ern this land. lake tne history of Ooredo. We have had whisky and its revenue; what have we got a- a reoord to show for it? Noth ing but a black spot on the records of the town . For several years we have been tree of the saloon and its hellish in fluences ; and when straugers pass thro' Oeredo they now speak of the nice, quiet, clean appeurauco of the town We might improve on this a little; but, Mr. Voter, when you po to cast your vote, remember your wife, your daugh ter, your boy and yourself and consider. If you have w'hisky at jour door what will you have gained? You can only buy as long as you will take money from your children to pay for it. You can not run your face for it unless you have a job to make it secure. Whon your children are hungry the saloonist wi 1 not give them bread or fuuds with which to purchase it. With a saloon here this year your wife, daughter or mother will not bs safe outside their door. With the ele ment on that construction work in Ken ova it would, to have a saloon in our town, simply convert Oeredo into a place for those foreigners to assemble to drink; the saloon man get the money and your family the shame, sin and dis graoi. So, Mr. Voter, be true to your family, your oouutry and your God by voting against whisky with an open vote. Respectfully, J. M Werth. Oeredo, W. Va , March 9. Attacks School Principal. A severe attack on school principal, Ohas. B Allen of Sylvania, Ga , is thus told by him. “For more than three years,” he writes, “I suffered indes cribable torture from rheumatism . liyer and stomach trouble and diseased kid neys. All remedies failed till I used Electric Bitters, but four bottles of this wonderful remedy cured me complete ly.” Such results are common. Thous ands bless them for caring stomach trouble, female complaints, kidney dis orders , biliousness, and for new health and vigor. Try them. Only 60c at Bines’ Drug Store, Oeredo, and R.
