?I.EASH FRIENDLY WITH NEGRO.
Wishes a Blind Tiger Success in His
The following lines from The Stute
will he read with interost:
To the Editor of The State:
Mr. Mease pets terribly wrought up
over the appointment of a respectable
r.egro as notary public in Greenville by
Gov. Ansel. 1 am reminded of the fact
that in Iiis speech at Newberry two
years ago as candidate for governor,
noticing a notorious negro blind tiger
standing in bis audience, Mr. Bleasc
turned on him and said: "I hope your
business is prospering, Bob." I would
like to know which is to be the more
condemned, the appointment of a law
abiding negro to serve bis own people
in a legitimate way or the encouraging
of a notorious negro law-breaker to vio
both white and black with blind tiger
A CITIZEN OF NEWBERRY.
Newberry., S. C, Aug. 7, 1JI08.
Reference to the files of The State
shows that at the Newberry meeting
Mr. Zach McGbee in his report says in
part: "Spying a negro blind tiger, one
Bob Porterfield, out in the crowd, Mr.
Blcaso exclaimed: 'Bob, I hope your
business is nourishing.'"
August time tells on the nerves. But
that spiritless, no ambition feeling can
be easiiyjand quickly altered by taking
what is known by druggists every where
as Dr. Shoop's Restorative. Within Is
hours after beginning to use the Resto
rative improvement will be noticed.
Of course full health will not immedi
ately return. The gain, however, will
surely follow. And best of all, you
will realize and feel your strength and
ambition as it is returning. Outside
influences depress first the "inside
nerves," then the Stomach, Heart and
Kidneys will usually fail. Strengthen
these failing nerves with Dr. Shoop's
Restorative and see how quickly health
will he yours again. Sold by Palmetto

pensaries will he seen from tlx- follow

Subtracting the stock on hand, $18,

goods, there remains $72,603.99 to \i<
accounted for. Hut adding tin; break
age and expenses to the sales we have
only $72,03.015, leaving an apparent de
ficit of $20,090.04, which can doubtless
be easily explained by the dispensary
In order to have a clear concept ion of
the meaning of these figures (lie;, may
be compared with other expenditures of
government. It is a conservative as
sumption to take the quarter of the
year under consideration as a fair sam
ple of the year's operations. It is the
busiest season of the farmers' year,
with less money on hand for necessa
ries, not to speak of luxuries. The dis
pensary board seem to have experienced
this, for in the June report it is an
nounced that prices were reduced in
two of tin- dispensaries.
Tho cost of operation, including wages
to clerks, salesmen, bottlers, breakage
etc., should amount for the year to $2:?,
560.32, a little short of the $25,000, for
many years the salary of the president
of the United States, and also of the
county expenditures of Aikon, esti
mated for 1008 at $20,4:;f). The cost of
the goods is more than three times
as much ai the aggregate of all
taxes, State and local, collected in
the county, that figure for I'M)/ be
ing given a ; $127,170. The sales, with
the expenses for operation added in,
should reach $288,405, and to meet them
would require the proceeds of r>,7<>0
halt s of cotton at $50 a hale, out of an
average county crop of 2.'?,<H>0 hales.
The hoard reports the profits for the
quarter as being $14,310.77, at the rate
of ?7,242.19 for the year. Of this sum
$19,080.08 goes to the dispensary towns;

It. is doubtful whether the six dispon
nrios of Aikcn county are promoting
temperance more than the great pro
hibition wave that has swept, over this
and idost other counties during recent
years. The saloon has been banished
from more than half of the national
domain through local option and pro
hibition enactments. The; liquor traffic
has been wholly prohibited in six Stales
and extensively cut short in thirty-four
others, In 1870 there were only 3,500,?
000 persons living in dry territory; in
1900 the number was 18,350,000; in 1907
it was 33,000,000. However, the Fed
eral reports show that in 188-1 the con
sumption of liquors per head of the
population was 12J gallons, while in
1906 the consumption had risen to 22.27
gallon:- a bead. For the year ending
Juno 30, 1907, there was 11,409,252 gal
lons of whiskey more consumed than in
the preceding vear.
