Abbeville Press and Banner (Newspaper) - August 25, 1909, Abbeville, South CarolinaThe Abbeville press and Banner j i by w. W. & w. R. Bradley. Abbeville 8. C., wednesday August 25, 1909. Established 1844 ==?."bg=======" Mumm ii the Balaam Marathon. Seventeen Jehl s on seventeen mules sons of Nimshi ride like Mercury or the winds that mule race of inst wednesday tit Marathon was opened by Harry Cobb Euleut Power and Willie Lyon. It was a proposition Tea tube mules bad never been up Gamst they bad been on Ibe off Side and in the Lead to a Wagon they bad been up against tit Bame string to a plow Stock they bad been hitched to buggies they Una Yeeu Wurst in Many ways but to be in a Ruce was something entirely new. A mule is a queer Critter any Way. It possesses More individuality than any other animal. He knows How to take care of h m feel better than most men. He will Neve run away if there is any danger of injuring himself thereby. He is As Leafy of a stranger As �. Z. Mark just after being gulled. He u As Lull of Telcka As a circus blown possesses untold wealth of humor and likes a negro because the negro likes him. Tbl6 particular Batch of mules was much distract when filed out on the race track. It was Plain to tee to one versed id museology that they were uneasy. Whenever a mule stands he shod on one Hind leg with one ear pointing to the front and the other pointing to the Back that male 1b asking a question. There Wera seventeen males in this Altitude on the race track last wednesday morning All asking questions. The question was soon answered for the sign was Given and the three riders Cobb Power and Lyon put Wulp and Spur to their ted8 in order to see who would be in the last Raco. Around the grounds they went like Bee Martins la a Thunder storm now straight Dow in a curve Dow Zig aging crossing and Cross crossing the hoes Udall they came again to the starting place when will Lyon was found to come out ahead. The next race was cockeyed by or Skene Blake Mack Nicklis and Clyde Morgan. They were dressed like Don Quixote and seemed ready to charge any thing from a male race to a Windmill. At the signal from sheriff Lyon off they Pat. They made the Best and cle8dest race Rud. In the am race one of the mules understood that he was to go Bomar d toward Home he started like a Martin to Bis Gourd bldg log of on the ropes of the enclosure and Landing the son of Nims blon the top of a Cedar Post with As much ease As a Mammy could torn a Batter cake. Mack Nickles won Here. The next race wan run by or. Harvlyn Wallace Harris and Adam. Thin was a of stirring race. The Mulether Harris. Dear the Shank of the race was making the Circle with each enormous Speed that the centrifugal Force smashed the Force of Gravity and Harris mule and All went off at a Tangent through a wire Fence with such Force that the Fence was demolished without Dong damage to the projectile whatsoever. Adams won the race. The mule Teers in the fourth race were a Ber Morse Dick Sondley and Henry a Hood. In this race Wilson b mule seemed to think that he was hemmed up to be caught. He darted around with such astounding celerity that he was barely visible at times with the result that that Doughty rider and crack horseman Wilson could not keep his seat. Almost any ods can ride a mule but it takes a spook to ride a piece of bucking Black lightening. Moree won the race. Next there cantered out on the scene a Trio that according to the eternal fitness of things was in perfect Harmony. The mule seemed made Lor the Man and the Man for the mule. Talk about Riding you a bold have seen it. Your brain spatters oat like a dead Candle when you try to it scribe it and words Are absolutely wanting to do the subject Justice. Four or five thousand years ago there was one Abl ask who was something of a runner but Abi Manz would Bave looked ii tee a slow freight beside Johnnie Yates in comparison with Devlin in hat race. Devlin s Rule was simply scared bats All and you know what a scared mule can do. Nickles Morse and Lyon ran the next Rac they raised such a smoke of dust that it Way impossible to see what happened on the route Bat Lyon Cor Jared his mule somehow and came out ahead. In the flu Al try out and wind up Lyon. Devlin and Harris bad the track. Harris was Riding old Fox seventeen hands blot pitched within and without Ellb pitch and built of Gopher Wood. Old Fox was a Noblr specimen and it bad never dawned on him what be was to do that whole Day until tha last race was run. When the Flag Ell thai males hide was Girt into a million wrinkles he looked like the a lecture of the charter of Abas Peruf. He stretched out like a Black Cloud and went around the track so fast that be caught up with himself of the last Lap and that was running some. And so it was that Harris won the Pulz. � liquor Law to be enforced. Daily mail. Reports received Here indicate that the counties which went dry in the dispensary election on tuesday Are repairing already to enforce the Law. In Orangeburg especially the people seem determined. In Springfield one of the leading towns in that county the municipal officers yesterday got wind of a Case of whiskey consigned to an assumed name and the authorities accompanied by a number f citizens marched Enma set the express office secured the liquor Aud emptied it into the Street. The usual rumours of election contests Are reported from both sides. In Ric Blaud the Drys claim that they were not represented on the Board of election managers Aud they also charge that irregularities in voting were allow pcs in Tavor of the wet. It is not believed however that the contests in any of the counties will amount to much and that the future of the county dispensary system i South Carolina will be decided by the next session of the state legislature.

What next Glast tuesday elections were held in is Wenty one wet counties on the question of dispensary or " non dispensary and it appears from lat a St reports that prohibition is won pc n fifteen counties and the dispensary w n six counties. The result of the election however is Given Rise to much speculation As r of what the next legislature will Dro ably do. It is the general opinion Bat the next general Assembly will a a98 an Iron Clad state wide pro Hillion Law and ignore the verdict of the people at the ballot Box in those coun f lies where the dispensaries were voted it. This is but natural perhaps in new of so Large a majority of the coun ? is voting for prohibition but what Over the legislature does it will not Likely please All parties. Some curious phases in politics were developed Inion Ecton with the prohibition p Campaign in the different counties in 10 hat those who in the past have stood to shoulder with the pro a Bibi zionists in their fight on the old state dispensary were the strongest a advocates for the county dispensaries while thousands perhaps of those who once advocated the Stata dispensary rioted with the prohibition late. A Uta lose analysis or the situation however will put the strict prohibitionist in a audary As to who or which class hey Are most indebted to for their or Victory,.the local opt Onist that help them defeat the old state dispel up iary or the former state dispensary Teri advocates who voted with the prohibit f zionists of Courie the fair minded Dos a ruminating prohibitionist will be de forced to conclude that it was All politics a 10 matter How they solve the Puzzle. Sow if the real con Cletious prohibit bit zionist a Ivill help the local of zionists ind the old state dispensary crowd j�1toedforce the Law they can very Well 138 afford to forgive and forget All past a ii Florence in the fulfilment of that 01 be important duty of enforcing the m a. A if however the next legislature jul Loes not pass a state wide prohibition j1/1law, those who will have their booze should have the privilege or right to or Purchase it in Columbia and Charles Ion instead of sending their Money a of to Richmond or Louisville. It is a 101 generally conceded fact that every lit be town or Hamlet in a county is More to concerned about getting rid of a of dispensary at the county seat from a a a self interest or business motive than or rom any moral or religions scruples. Pm inf if Tibia to who Nuoc if phar Letrin ind Columbia can succeed in getting Ujj he legislature to allow them to suppl the dry counties with booze they of won t have this trouble for the balance f the state would t have any motive r business interest in depriving these sol cities of their get Rich Quick institution Lauren Villa Hearald.
