"For a long time 1 was troubled with catarrh of the kidneys and tried many remedies, all of which gave me no relief.

The editor of the nerald a few days ago wrote to the Mayor of Georgiana, Ala., for a statement of fact in regard to the workings ot the dispensary in his town. The following reply is of the MOST VITAL INTEREST to every citizen of Columbia : "Georgiana, Ala., Jan. 26, 1903. Mr. V. D. Lander, "Editor Daily Herald. "Columbia.

(Tkoor Si- "Yours of the 25tb received. I will answer your questions in regard to the Dispensary as best 1 can. "First. Our dispensary has been running three years. "Second. What effect has it had on business! "All kinds of business has increased. There is not a vacant honse in town of any kind. There has been more houses built here in the past two years than was built in the previous fifteen years. There are now under construc tion fifteen or twenty dwellings, and another block of business houses will be built this spring. The saloon men all said that when we closed the sa loons that the old town would go dead, but such has not been the case. Our town has taken on new life.' strangers here every uay looking for homes. Before we had the dispensary, Athens, on a big day loosed like some border town in the wild and woolly west; ladies could not go on the streets in the business part of town, without meeting some drunken fellows, who were filling the air with their vile oaths. Kuw, we only have one police man and about all he has to. do, is to notify the councilman when we have our regular meetings. "I have been Mayor for the past three years, and my docset will show that I have not averaged one case of drunkenness a month. Before we had the dispensary there were four to five a week, and some days more than this number. Of course, one can get all the whiskey they want from the dis pensary, but they have to take it away trom there to drink it, and this destroys the social feature of the saloon, which is it's worst I do not know of a single young man in our town that drinks. Now, no doubt you will think this is a remarkable state ment, but you- know it to be a fact, as you are well acquainted here, and know nearly all of the young men. The temptation is taken away from them. "I am not a PROHIBITIONIST, but I do most heartly enaorse the dispen sary, and think it the only way to handle whidKey. It was left to a vote of our county last summer, and the dispensary carried three to one. ,So you see the sentiment after, two years' trial. I hope to- see you here soon, then I can give yon all the facts, and figures that you want. ' Ninety-nine-one hundredths of the people would not have the saloons again for any consideration. . . "Yours Truly. "JNO. B. TANNER. Mayor." DENUNCIATION OF ALCOHOL. The most terrific and the most eloquent arraignment of the whiskey evil ever delivered, was spoken by Robert G. Ingersoll, in a lawsuit where he was defending a liquor dealer. It was as follows: ' "I am aware that there is a prejudice against any man engaged in the man ufactunof alcohol. I believe that from the time it issues from the coiled and poisonous worm in the dis tillery until it empties into the hell of death, dishonor, and crime, it de moralizes everything that touches it, from its source to where it ends. I do not believe anybody can con template the subject without becoming prejudiced against the liquor crime. "All we have to do, gentlemen, is to think of the wreons on either bsnk of the stream of death; of the suicides, of the insanity ; of the poverty ; of the little children tugging at the faded and weary breasts of weeping and despairing wives, asKing for bread ; of the talented men of genius it has wrecked, the men struggling with imaginary serpents, produced by this devilish thing; and when you. think of the jails, the almshouses, of the asylums, of the prisons, of the scaf folds upon either bank, I do not wonder that every thoughtful , man is prejudiced against this stuff called alcohol. ' " . , "Intemperance cuts down youth In Its vigor, manhood in its weakness. It breaks the father's heart, bereaves the doting mother,, extinguishes natural affections, erases conjugal loves, blots out filial attachments. blights pa rental hope, and brings do n mourn ing age in sorrow tu the grave. It produces weakness, not strength ; sick ness, not health; death, not life. It mairoa nrivAR widows, children or- and an oi inem tilence and embraces consumption. It covers the:land with idleness, misery, and crime. It fills your jails, supplies your almshouses, and demands your asylums. It engenders controversies, fosters quarrels, and cherishes riot. It crowds your penitentiaries and fur nishes victims to your scaffolds. It is the lifeblood of the gambler, the ele ment of the burglar, the prop of the highwayman, and the support of the midnigl t incendiary. It countenances the liar, respects the thief, esteems the blasphemer. It violates obligations, reverences fraud, and honors infamy. It defames benevolence, hates love, scorns virtue, and slanders innocence. It incites the father to butcher his helpless offspring, helps the husband to massacre his wife, and the child to grind the parental ax. It bums up men, consumes women, d etests life, curses God and despises heaven. ' It suborns witnesses, nurses perjury, defiles the jury box, and strains the judicial ermine. It degrades the citi zen, debases the legislator, dishonors statesmen, and disarms the patriot. It brings shame, not honor ; terror, not safety ; despair, not hope ; misery, not happiness; and with the malevolence of a fiend it calmly surveys its fright ful desolation, and, unsatisfied with its havoc, it poisons felicity, kills peace, ruins morals, blights confidence, slays reputation, and wipes ont na tional honors, then curses the world and laughs at its ruin. "it aoes all that and more it mur ders the soul. It is the son of vlllain- i les, the father of all crimes, the moth- nliana' fnfhfirn fiends. ' , 1 .

Unusually Heavy Work Done. Re port Submitted to Judge. Hold ing, Who Compliments the Mem bers. Some of the Recommendations. The grana jury, which has been fnt session the past four weeks, submitted its report to Judge Holding. A total of 103 bills have been found, and il is said that some surprises are in stor for "the boys. ". This is nnuswilljr heavy work for one grand jury. Judge Holding , in receiving' the report, and dismissing the jury, took occasion to compliment its worsr Ht said the county would be fortunate it' it could always get men who wenIB do their duty as well as the membersi of the present grand jury had coue theirs. The jury, in its report, sayn it found the bonds of all county officials,, guardians, administrators, etc., in gilt edged shape. The poor-house- niE county jail are reported in good ren dition. The jury recommends a stonei wall to be built around the jail to pre vent prisoners' escaping or any toolsj being furnished them from friends on the outside. The jury also reports that the stove in the prisoners' room is without a. pipe which makes it very oisagreeabte to the inmates, the room filling with smoKe every time a fire is built io it. The work-nouse is also favorably reported on. The jury says it found the eonrt: house in bad condition. One room np stalls, which is full of plunder,! pronounced a fire-trap; the jury says, it found no protection for the eonty records, and recommends that the roof: be repaired. The report concludes as follows : "We further report that from our investigation, we find that the ilawa against Sunday tippling, selling to minors, gambling, carrying pistols and chicken fighting are being grossly violated, and that the disposition on the part of so many witnesses to con ceal the facts in regard to them, makes it very difficult to catch ut with them. We would, therefore, re spectfully, but most earnestly, suggest to the court that when men charge with such offenses are convicted, they be given the full penalty of the law in order that they and others may be deterred from like violations in the future."
