The Carole. Every Man reigns a King on the throne of his individuality. He should not Only reign but. Rule his individuality is Hla True self Hla nest Elf his highest Seir his self victorious. His thoughts his words his acts his habits nos feelings and his Powers Are his subjects. He Muk Rule them or Ibey will finally tear from his feeble lingers the reins of government and Rule him. Man reigns Over the miniature kingdom of self As actually As god Rule the universe. Let blk draw around him the Royal Robes of Hub kingdom and see life with a now grand simple a Gully. When god created Man in his own image his first gift to blk was Dominion. And the greatest Dominion is Over self. Man must reign and reign be shall reign rests with blk. The would needs More individuality in its men and women. It needs men Aud women a Ltd Joy of Freedom in l heir minds the red Moon of purpose in Belr hearts and the Nouraee of truth in their Bouls they should tee it a privilege to live bravely on the higher Levels of life fighting on for what they feel is right undaunted by trial sorrow and failure. Belr hearts should be Ever fresh simple sincere Sweet despite All the world s injustice. Through their whole natures should surge the old inspiring consciousness that they Are rot Mere units on u census list not unman Brooks folded in deadly uniformity by Ronve Claitty but , of course it is not was not intended to be easy . It 1 Worth while. Individuality is the Only real life. It is breathing the Ozone 01 mental moral spa ritual Freedom. All other living is an excuse a substitute a near thing. Nature put her stamp of individuality on Ever Man. Some people seem to spend most of the time trying to soak off the stamp. They Wear a uniform of Opl Lou they seek to keep in step with the line they March in solid sameness along the comfortably paved Road of other people s than pc. Nature intended life an an individual problem different for each Man she wants an Ludl Viduate solution. Individuality Means self knowledge Bel con fluence self Reliance self poise self control self Conquest. It Means the fullest freest expression of our finest self As the most perfect Rose Best represents the Plant. It is the Complete self acting Unity of Man s whole mind nature heart and life. It is moved Ever from within not without the automobiles a Type of is neither pulled pushed nor propelled by outside Forcer it is self inspired self do rented and sen moving. The Conquest of individuality the finer attunement of rett. If we would bring Forth for ourselves and for others the fullest sweetest mus a of living we most put self the instrument id Best condition. The violinist knows he must tune his violin to its perfection in order to bring Forth its truest purest notes. Rot suppose be should say Ibe Bridge is broken two strings have snapped the sounding Board is warped the Bow is frayed and the instrument is out of tune but i will do the pest i can As it would seem sheer Folly. He realities Well however that be must first put Bis violin in perfect order then he May seek to play Bis Best. We Are unjust to ourselves and to those around us and through widening circles of influence to the whole world if we do not master any trait that keeps tie from our Best we should do Jit today. Today is the Tomb of yesterday the Cradle of tomorrow. All our past ends in today All oar future begins in today. Be v us peek to reign nobly on the throne of oar individuality for just a single Day filling every moment of every Bour a Ltd our finest unselfish Best. Then there would come tons a vision of the Golden glory of the sunlit Heights such a glad glowing tonic of the higher Levels of life that we could never dwell again in the darkened Valley of Ordinary living without feeling shut in stifled and hungry for the Freer Ait and the broader of look. Were we suddenly to have made Lum Nant to us in every vivid detail the wondrous in flue Ceol our Dally lives we would stand stunned by the revelation As did Moses before the burning Bush we would then res ize the possibility of our reign on the throne or our individuality and the pettiness of our selfishness and of an the other lower qualities in our nature would be revealed in their .

Let us Jave that great prip0 in our individuality that would scorn to let Petty pique or vanity keep us irom doing what we8uowlsrlghl.no matter what the Cost. Wear the Robes of your Royal Pride in such kingly fashion that it would not seem sacral Floreto stoop to Brush off that which might stain them let us seek fairly squarely and zealously to discover the elements within us from of priest and tight Day by Day and hour by hour till they be vanquished and we victorious.

That people will have spirituous lion Quorn cannot be gains said and one of the questions to be decided by each to. Voter when he comes to cast Bis vote id on the 17th Day of August should be by whether it would be better to provide a Way by which those who will have whiskey can get it in a lawful manner or be forced to patronize and thereby u encourage those parties who Are engaged in an unlawful Sale of it. I have just read an article published h by the mayor of the City of Anderson gotten up ostensibly in the interest of prohibition in which it is stated that o for the year 1908, there were received or by express at that place in which there is no dispensary 25,000 Gallons of intoxicating liquors. V if this amount of liquor was Contrastive 1 what appears to have been to sold by the dispensary at that place forty the last year of its existence there by which it was shown that there was at considerably More than that sold Byth dispensary. Nut in you will add to this 25,000 Gali Loos All the liquors received at Belton be Hosea path and All the other towns and Railroad stations in Anderson be county which places got most of their to liquors from the Anderson dispensary when it was in operation it will doubtless appear that there is being trunk atthe present time in Anderson county As much or More of the stuff than was the Case under the dispensary regime. It is also contrasted in this article the number of arrests and convictions is by the City authorities during the reign of the dispensary and that under pro. ,1? Hibi Tion with the result largely in Favoron the latter. V this is doubtless True but the same k can be accounted for largely by the fact r. That All of the parties who were taken up and tried for drunkenness procured their liquor from the dispensary ally though Many of them lived in the p country drank it while in town and if they got drunk it occurred while in they were there and for which they be were tried by the City authorities. Whereas parties who now receive their liquors by express take it Home and if they get drunk on it they Are not amenable to the City authorities for be such an offence is so much then for the moral Side of the question. Now let us consider it id from a business standpoint. The net income annually from the dispensary is about $60,000. This is ill divided equally among the City of Abe Beville the county and the schools. Clone the dispensary and this $80,000 in will have to be raised by direct taxa9"Tion. So that the taxpayer residing in d the country who now pay $5 taxes in will have to pay $8.75, and the City resident taxpayer will have to pay just about double what he now pays. I8 if this were Only for one year it would not matter much but it will have to be kept up for a Good Many years As it will be a Long time before 8 the county will have paid the debt incurred in to milling the new court House. This doubtless will be regard18ed by some As a sordid View to take of " the matter but in View of the fact that experience shows that there is about la As much liquor drank and the evil effects thereof about As great under prohibition As is the Case with pith results in the former Case we think it is a most common sense View to take v of the matter. Sene. B v Snake swallows Glass egg. A a. Several years ago or.
