E. E. Ewing, Proprietor. VOL. VII. RISING SUN. CECIL COUNTY, Ml)., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1885. NO. 50 TO BUSINESS MEN. A A good advertisement in a good paper is the best of all salesmen. It is a sales- D lhan who never sleeps, and is never weary; who goes alter business early or late; who V accosts the merchant in his store, the scholar in his study, the lawyer in hisotllce E the lady in her home, the traveler in the cars or boat; a salesman whom no purchas er can avoid; who can he in a thousand places at once, and speak to thousands of T people daily, saying to each one the best thine in the best manner. A good adver- I ment insures a business connection on the most permanent and and independent basis, S and is, in a certain sense, a guarantee to the customer of fair and moderate prices. Ex perience has shown that the dealer whose stock has obtained a public celebrity is not N only enabled to sell, but is forced to sell at reasonable rates, and to furnish a good ar- G tide. A dealer can make no better invest ment than in advertising in a live paper. 1885. 1885.

A Prohibition Ticket. A prohibition tit ket of state officers has been put in the tield, and some counties, we learn have also nominat ed prohibition tickets. There is a ru meranl a whisper, something like that which Sanacharib heard when he raised the siege of Jerusalum, that Cecil county temperance men may nominate a prohibition ticket, before the ides of November. We believe it may be safely set down that our candi dates for the legislature are going in for “High License.” “The dog returns to his vomit and the washed sow to wallowing in the mire.” If this step is taken backward it will require years to regain the lo>t ground. If temper ante men will slumber and s eep, they may rest assured that the rum party will improve every hour. We believe they can count on three papers in the count.y that will go into the fight if it is once organized, with no uncertain sound. The yarns that are told by the rum party about prohibition in Maine, in Kansas, in lowa and other places being a failure, arc all weak inventions of the enemy Statistics disprove them in every instance. We are rather sur prised that so many of our tender-foot ed temperance foik are imposed upon, and echo these assertions of the rum party. The politicians and the grog party are running this campaign, and the candidates know it and are afraid to open their mouths. If it is allowed to go by default, a liquor louby will be in Annapolis next winter, claiming that the election this fall was in the interest of High License, and they will demand the repeal of the local option law abso lutely. and the enactment of a high licence law in its stead. And again the cut glass decanters wi 1 be placed in its old and honored position before the reflect ing mirror, and the business of mak ing drunkards in a gentle way will go on again ; but the little brown jug will hold its place under the hay stack and fence corner as of old, never the less. Kidney Disease. Mr. H. Waram, member of City Council, oo dbury, N. J., says : “I was a victim of the worst form of kidney disease. A short trial of Aromavvu j completely cured me.” Price 25 and 75 ot.s. Sold by Dr- L. R. Kirk, Rising Sun. Officers as Police. One of tiie anomalies of our civiliza tion and hdrit of government we say “habit.” for the peculiar custom has been handed down to us —is the posi tion officers h. id as conservators of the peace, aml protectors of society. It would seem that they are selected for, and the duty a-signed to them, of keep ing the peace and taking care that the laws which are for the protection of so ciety, are carefully observed. That it is their duty to he on guard constantly and when they see any uttemptut vio. lation of law, they warn the off tiding party of,his erroriand if persisted in fur ther, to take measures to have the law respected, in order that society shall not suffer. Buttheverv reverse seems to be the rule, and every officer uppears to consider it his duty to stand idly by till some private citizen makes formal complaint. Under this construction of duty our police branch of government officers is of little or no use. The pri vate citizen who complains of wrong might as well serve the writs and pro ceed as the agent in the hands of the judge, to give effect to the law. This class of officers seldom see any violators of law. They report periodically to the grand juries that all is serene and they know of no offence against the peace and order of society, etc. The fact is that in a great me isure, it is litt’e Lett* r loan a farce, ’i tie office implies duty and responsibility, but ninety nine out of a hundred officers shirk both.
