Va., June C Uusn't It been demonstrated
tlmennd tltne again that when men want
intoxicants they will get them In spltoef
all the prohibitory legislation In lue land T
Isn't It a well-known fact thnt no matter
hew stringent the laws or hew severe the
penalty for violating the " statoets," or acts
or assembly, that men will drink liquor
and neil It T And la It net a solemn truth
that whorevor prohibitory laws liave been
put Inte ferce that lutein pcrntice rather In
creases than diminishes? Way no county,
West Virginia, where I am located, fur
nishes nu example of what howling farces
prohibition or lead option arc
If t am Informed correctly, Wnyne
county voted en the question of local
option, and the ballets of the people do de
elded that the county should be without a
drop of liquor for thlrty-flve long years.
The "dry" ticket wen the day, but by what
majority I de net knew. And niter years
of trial hew has loud option fared? It Is a
screaming farce. In the whele of Wayne
county there Is net n hotel. Hearding
houses are numerous, ever which hosplt hesplt hosplt
able Southern ladies proslde as u general
rule. They serve the Jaded truvcler with
generous quantities of prevender, and
copious draughts of bad-tasting cistern
water. .Thcre Is net a road-heuso or any
plnce along any of the county highways
where n traveler can step and get a decent
meal, decently served. If the travoler Is
hungry and thirsty and he halts .at the
average farm heuse, which hounds squat
ted among the hills, he will have spread
befere him a mess of cold smoked perk
and beans, a leugh hunk of corn bread, n
bowl of brown sugar, a leathery wedge of
ple nnd a glass of thin milk 1
I am speaking new of the entertainment
for man nnd beast which is furnished along
the country reads. In the small towns and
villages, of course, a shade better fare Is
provided. " Better fare'1 consists probably
of eggs In addition te the corn bread,
which is a trill i) mero tender; and instead
of smoky ham yen nre served with u ploce
of fried bacon and the leather-crust of the
pie is displaced by pastry " betwixt nnd
between" leather and a soggy potato I Hew
such slulf outrages a stomach ! And when
you finish the meal, hew about getting
something stronger than water te wash it
down? Well, that's net hard te get, If you
kne.v the ropes. Whisper softly, exhibit
Hllver coin and presto! from seme dark
recess comes forth the little brown jug and
u lineup, The transaction Is nil ever In
less tlme than it takes te tell it and the
carthen vossel and Us tin adjunct are 10 10
pleced. The natlvu is one drink out and
ene silver coin in. A smile wreathes his
features and the traveler has been rojuve rejuve rojuve
nated and the bad nieal he has eaten has
I would wager something pretty that
there Is scarcely n family In Wayue county
who doc net have among the scanty
household effects a little brown jug. This
II is net asserting that overy head of a family
will seu the liquor, lint he gets it and
drinks it. Se dees his wife. Se de the
children. Some of the natives, possibly,
are tee peer te buy a genuiue artlcle of
whisky, which Is net sold in less than two
gallon jugs. What de they de in that
event? Kasy question te answer. They
purchase alcohol, dilute- it or net, just as
they are hardened te its use, and gulp
down the fluid. Such llery stuff would
sicken the ordinary mortal. It doesn't
sicken them and they becotne addicted te
l its use until tliey can tnke It with as great
gusto anil relish as a unikey doesn slice
of watermelon. The thirty-five-year local
option clause does net prevent hundreds
of gallons of liquor from finding its way
Inte Wayne county. Xe place but ene
have I seen rum sold openly, but Just as
much Is drank ns though thcre were public
places by the scere where it's sale would
be lawful. Wayne county Is a loser by its
voting down the "wet" ticket.
Cabell county and the ether counties en
fits border which eoley the legal sale of
lllquer are the winners, and the revenue
which gees out of Wayne county sums up
i big figure every twelve mouths. Here
lis an illustration of hew big seme of the
hunntltics of liquor are which go into the
rillagoef Wayne Court Heuso alone. My
Informant was a 1 citable, trustworthy
inn, who sometimes takes nu occasional
nip" of the" tesy fluid":
1 Fer soveral weeks preceding und suc
ceeding the Christmas holiday it is no uu-
toinmen thing for n team te drlve into
Vayue Court Heuse having en beard as
jany as forty erlifty half gallon jugs of
hlsky! Beer, as you may knew, owing
the dlMcult means of transportation, is
llinest an unknown quantity in Wayue
'eurt Heuso. Kvery body drinks whisky
nd they drink a heap of It, tee. Kvery
ellday or any unusual occurrence of any
ind Is sure te see big quantities of whisky
tiding its way Inte the town. Nearly
rcry heuse has Its jug or a half dozen of
hem, and whlle there Is net much open
Iruiikemicss, nevertheless astonishing
luantlties of whisky nre drunk."
All of me liquor which is taken te
fayue Court heuse geos from Huntington,
Iventy odd tullesaway. The liquor dealers
ind rcpicscutnmcs or go themselves te
'ay no and drum up trade. Que liquor
an, smarter than his rivals, Imported n

ado him clerk In his establishment.
rhat was the result of the line stroke of
islncss tuct? All of the new clerk's
iends carried their patrouage te him, and
liquor man fattened his purse thereby.
et many days age I met running into
ayne Court Heuse ene of Iho prominent
pier dealcrsef Huntington. He appeared
be In no easy tr.ime ei ml nil and I put
piestien te him about his business In
"I'll tell you about it," he said, dls-
nselately. ".Somebody down thcre mis-
liresented something te the man who
fries my jugs into Wayue uud the result
Is been a fall-nut between the man and
wlf. .My business is thereby crippled
Imewhat, and 1 took a trlpduwu there te
matters up. "
Irheday for the journey was a rough one,
ll a geed many dollars were at Make for
liquor dealcr, and hu braved the
moms and bad reads te -ee that the
antlty of rum he sent into a local ontlen
Itieu did net lessen !
r.iere is net a wagon which geos out or
liynoCeuit Heuse, beuud for Hunting-
i mat uecs no iiave en its icturu trip
or mereju jk, perhaps the number mav
Ick a doren. When a man Irurus that
next-deer neighbor is going " te town,"
hurneylngle Huntington Uncalled, he
rrles ever te tlui heutu the night before,
einniy counts out a coupie of dollars
I hands It te the citizen who is going te
lutingten en the morrow. Perhaps he
Isn't tell him what te buy for the two
Ilar?. That isn't necessary, the citizen
utheteanihas "been there" many a
time and ha knew very well that the
money it net for the purchase of feed or
clothing, but whisky, pure and simple.
It was only the ether day that a colored
teamster was halted by one of his brethren
who was en feet The darkey, who was
walKlng.handed the ether a dollar and said
" Howdy," with a bread grin. The ether
took the piece of silver and slid It In his
wide pocket. I was near by when the
meney changed hands, but nothing was
said by the one darkey te the ether as te
what purpose the dollar was te be used.
When seme distance away I asked, In
nocently, and perhaps with some show of
"Man want you te buy him something In
Yes, snh ; whisky."
The conversation ended.
Huntington is a great market for the
little brown jug. Kxcept at the bars of the
hotels or saloons a boltle is never seen.
Jugs te the right, jugs te the left, Jugs In
front of you, Jugs all around you. When
the reads are In such a condition that
wagons cannot pass ever thorn and the
excitable streams playfully wash away a
few bridges, the jugs are carried en horse
back. Kvery mother's son who owns
a herse also owns a pair of saddle bags,
Just made the size of a half-gallon Jug.
Recently, when the reads were blockaded
for travel with mud and landslides, a
coiree and Heur famine raged for a short
time In Wayne Court Heuse. The town
has yet te me a whisky famine, and whlle
coffee and flour were at a premium and
were being borrowed right and left, the
staid citizens had the little brown jugs full
te the uozzle.
I was amused the ether night, while I
was loitering about the postefllce, awaiting
the slew distribution of the mall. The
usual crowd was clustered In front of the
e 111 co, nnd a horseman flew up the read
and drew rein. The rider dismounted nnd
hlmsulfand his panting steed were quickly
surrounded by the side-walk stainpers.
" Holle 1 Sam," they all said, cheerily nnd
with oue accord. I loekod upon the indi
vidual who had arrived en horseback with
some concern, and, from the effuslve de
monstrations which wero being made evor
bis arrival, I thought he was some distin
guished citizen the mayor, perhaps, or
town marshal. Before I made inquiry
I waited developments, and I seen saw
why the " Holle ! Sam," had been given
with such a hearty geed will, and why all
this seemlng great popularity of the rider.
The herseman began unloading his steed,
and the gang craned their necks and loekod
en with interested sllonce. A pair of sad
dle bags wero taken eir and twoelhor stout
canvas bags followed te the sldewalk.
They were deposited with great care
en the ground, and le I and boheld,
wheu the mouth of the bags were
tern open their disclosed contents showed
the little brown jugs, each with scaled
corks, showing that they were all full of
the festlve julce of the rye. "Sam"
hauded a jug te ene outstretched hand, an
other te nn expetunt individual, and se en
until he had his whele burden distributed,
oxceptenojug. That was for " Sam." He
mounted his herse und rede away. The
crowd dispersed, as "Sam" was the plum
they had been walling for, and llfe ence
mero get te running the worn channel.
The natives are guilty of drinking Ja
maica ginger and cssence of peppermint,
and It is said that they get boisterously
drunk en theso scorching stimulants. The
vlllage of Wayne Court Heuso Is net the
possosser of a d rug store. 1 n u I Ittle bu 1 id
iug a pair of doctors have their olllce en
oue side. The ether side is used as a bar
ber shop. On the doctors' slde of the
ground fleer are several rows of shelving
which contain the most common of
drugs. I' looked at the contents of
the shelving the ether day. The big
gest stock en baud was composed of
small bottles of peppermint and Jamaica
ginger, marked In plain Anglo-Saxen,
with no Latin terms te deceive the ordinary
Court Houseito. The bettles are sold at 23
cents each, and whonevor a buyer comes,
and such are Humorous, ene or the ether of
the doctors, or perhaps the barber, will
gravely ask :
" De you want this for medicinal use?"
" Certainly," comes the answer at nil
" Mediclual use " be hauged. The pur
chasers de net want it for any such thing.
They want It for a stimulant of the Intoxi
cating kind, and they tell ft " whlte lie " te
get it. They drink it without mixing it
with water, and theso I have seen take a
rather stiff drink of the burning stuff soem
te enjoy it immensely. Thore are ether
amusing things connected with the local
option business in this vicinity, which I
will give you for dessert at another time.

aghy is ii Lancaster man, and resides en
Middle street. He was committed te Jail
In default of ball, by Alderman A. F. Don Den
nelly, te answer u charge of surety
of the poace, preferred by his niece.
Whlle awaiting trial he made his oscape In
a rather novo! way. He did net wear a
striped suit whlle In prison and had the
run of the corridor. On April 21 he coolly
walked te the front gate nnd asked the
attendant thcre te let him out. The officer
did net knew Dbnaghy, hut supposed that
he had been Inside working or en business
and allowed him te go. Deuaghy quietly
walked down town and was at llberty until
late last night.
The efllcers were en lookout for Donaghy
for seme tlme and they finally concluded
that he hud geno te the country. Through
William Byerly they Dually locuted the
prisoner at the heuse of William llciiu, a
brether-lu-law, ut Hnytl, a little village,
between Quarryville und Georgetown.
Last night Coustable Crawford went te
Quarryville, where he was met by Byerly.
They secured a team and drove te the
heuse of Benn, reaching it at a Inte hour.
They secured Donaghy without treuble
and he was brought te town. He was
committed by Alderman Barr.
The charge en which Donaghy was
originally held was by no means a serious
one, but after his oscape the prison officials
made every effort te keep the matter quiet
and they have been anxious te get him
back. A reiKirtcr of the I"ri:M.im:'ci:ii
asked Denughy why he ran away for such
a petty offense. He replied with a laugh :
" Why, 1 did net runaway; they let me
out." He said that he was In Lancaster
most of the tlme after getting out, but only
spent one night ut home, lie passed police

Te-day ivforceof men nre In town put
ting the finishing touches te the advertis

exhibits lu Ijincnster en Thursday next,
and In Qdarry ville en Friday. Thore are
many small boys In Lancaster who have
never seen a wagon show of any size, und
te thorn this oue will be a nevelty. Such
was the geed old way of traveling,
but te-day there are probably mero wagon
shows en the read than for years. It
has net been many years slnce all the big
shows traveled by read, but then the Jumps
wcie net as 'arge as at proseul. Iu wagon
shows the elephants, camels and animals
of that kind nre com pel led te wnlk, much
te the delight nnd astonishment of the
country people. It lias net been se many
years age that a monster elephant refused
for a long tlme te crnsi Wltmer's brldge
and he delayed the whele circus by
his stubbornness. The old red wagon
has n charm for overybody, and
the show that trnvels by read Is still Uie
most popular. The boys of this city will
net be able te go te the railroad htntlen te
nwnit the arrival of the coming circus, but
they will doubtless go out the Columbia
turnpike te meet It. It Is safe te say that
the western cud of town will be quite
lively that morning.
Down lu Quarryville the people are wild
evor the coming of this show, as It will be
the first circus they have evor had. People
from Oxford te Willow Street are going te
attend, und it is certain that the business
thore will be us large us here.

from rheumatlsui for the past flve years,
but was only confined te his house the
pest tliree weeks. His Illness was net con
sidered te be serious until yosterduy morn
ing, at which tlme the rheumatism moved
te the region of the heart.
Mr. Schwebel was a native of Llchlon Llchlen Llchlon
berg, Hosse Darmstadt, Germauy and was
born en Jauuary 3, 1828. He emigrated te
America In 184S and came direct te Lancas

part of 1859, and whlle his wlfe looked
after that branch of busluess he dovetod
himself le out-deer work. He was a hlddaii
for all contractors' work advortlsed by the
city and did a large share of the city's
work and was also engaged In ether places
In macadamizing streets and similar work. J
Among Iho Important work dena by Mr.
Schwobel was the building of the 20-inch
water main en Fast Orange street, this
belng the first large water main laid by the
city; the building of a six-feet sewer en
Derwart strcet and the macadamizing of
numerous squares. He was also the con
tractor for the setting of the curbs along
Market strcet, Harrlsburg, wheu that
thoroughfare wan repaired a few years age.
He also macadamized uud guttered a num
ber of the strects of Mauhelm borough.
Twe years age he constructed n large
sewer en North Queen strcet, from
Contre Square te Orange strcet. In
all these contracts he was successful uud
did Ills work le the satisfaction of the au
thorities employing him. He wns a regular
attendant nt the sales of old buildings, and
as a rule the purchaser. The material he
carefully sorted out, and he found a ready
sale for It.

Last winter Philip Hiirinan, hotter
known as " Dutch Phlllj)," ucharacter who
has lived In Fucgloyvllie for liiuny years,
was taken by force from a mlsorable hovel
iu that classic district nnd placed in the
almshouse. Hu spent the wititer there,
and se did his wlfe, Susan, who was cap

Philip wanted te go out te Faegloyvllle.
The attendant did net want te uccemiany
him, but went along jiart of the way. They
then had n quarrel nud Philip was left
