The election called tor last wceK to
vote on the question of a "corpor
ation" or "no corporation" did not
meet the situation and was called
o"r rather abandoned and the
commissioners have called another
election for tomorrow to vote cm

to mention last week the "Old

nary. It was good from start to
finish, and created no end of fun

AVe have received several letters
touching on the saloon question
but we regret that lack of space
prevents us from using them this
week. One, a sad letter, is dated
at the county jail. Quoting from
this letter we find "there are four
prisoners confined in here, dl of
them of which whisky is mostly
?e of it. There is one
young man in here with whom I
have been acquainted for several

years, tan say 1 never knew ot
him taking a drink until he came
to Camden. It is here he learned
he drink habit. If there had
St 1 1
been no saloons in uamden in all
probability he would not be where
le is now. "I know of homes
in Camden and also in the sur
rounding country that have been
almost wrecked because of Cam
den's saloons. I know of men, de
pendent upon their daily labor for
a living, who work hard all week
and when they go to town to buy
needed articles for their wives and
children, they meet a friend, he in
vites him to take a drink, aud one
drink leads to another. The sa
loon man gets Lis money and he
goes home empty handed."
"Vote whisky out of Camden be
fore more boys are ruined by the
drink habit." The letter is signed
by AValter Kirk.

To V7hom it may concern :
This is to certify that my wife
has suffered 'thirteen years with
granulated eyelids and sore eyes,
and at times could not see her way;
all remedies she tried did her no
good until we heard of Dr. D. Gar
finkle'sEye Remedy, so we decided
to give it a trial, and now am glad
to state .to all my friends and the
general public that two bottles cur
ed her eyes, she can see as good as
anybody, and does not suffer any
pain at all. I do cheerfully rec
ommend Dr. D. Garfinkle's Eyf
Remedy to ail Hulfi rinr wih y
troubles. E. M. M tlock.'
