,Knives in Bvidence.
There was a small cutting scrape,
with no very serious results, in the rear
of Klettner's store, on last Thursday
afternoon. The principals were Messrs.
Hardy Proctor and B. H. Amick, both
of the upper part of the county.
It seems that some time ago Proctor
and Amick had some trouble about la
bor. Thursday afternoon Proctor, who
was drinking, called Amick and began
to discuss the matter. Anmick told him
to wait until he (Proctor) got sober,
but Proctor wanted to settle the mat
ter then and there. Finally Amick dis
puted something that Proctor said.
Proctor immediately dr'ew his knife and
made a lunge at Amnick. The blade
barely grazed Amick's face and neck
and lodged in Proctor's arm, inflicting
a painful but not serious wound.
Chief Hunter arrested both paities.
Bond was given, and Mayor Klettner
will fully investigate the matter tomor

Sheriff Buford in Pursuit of a "Coujurer"
Plays the Role of Rheumatism Doctor.
That superstition of the ante-bellum
variety still flourishes in the make-up
of the Southern negro was conclusively
proved recently by a somewhat laugh
able and rather interesting case which
came to the notice of Sheriff Buford.
Some time about the first of June
Gabe Pall, a negro living on Sheriff
Buford's place, near Gary's Lane, left
his wife, and together with a negro
girl about sixteen years of age and her
brother, went to parts unknown. It was
afterwards discovered that he had gone
to Greenwood County and was living on
W. 0. Goree's place. He had taken
the name of John Smith and the names
of the negroes, Hugh Glasgow and
Helen Glasgow, whom he had taken
with him, he had changed to Tom Hun
ter and Helen Smith respectively.
About a week ago the Sheriff received
the following anonymous letter from
an old negro living on the place to
which Pall had gone:
"Mr. Sheriff: a black man sed his
name is John Smith, but som say it is
Gabe. he come from Gary Lane. He
done tric my gal, she has not walk in
too month. Dr. say it is romtism. i
no it haint. i told him i get eben wid
him. i hope you want him, he goes
to Greenwood nerly ebery Satday eben
ing. He fetch a gal name May an a
boy name Tom," etc., etc.
Sheritl Buford knew about where
the negro was and went to the neigh
borhood. He impersonated the charac
ter of a rheumatism doctor and was
called in to diagnose the case of the
girl who had been "conjured." He
found that she was . suffering with
rheumatism, but saw no grounds upon
which the statement that she had been
"tric" could have been based. How
ever, he arrested the negro boy who
had gone off with Pall on the charge of
violation of contract, and brought the
girl to town as a witness in the case.
He had a warrant for Pall on the charge
of abduction, but Pall was fleet of foot
and made good his escape.
The boy and girl have now both gone
back to their home and the matter is
ended, except that among the negroes
on Goree's plantation in Greenwood
there is still considerable excitement, I
and the rheumatism of the "tric" girl 1
in spite of "Dr." Buford's attention, I
continues to grow worse.
Sight Completely Restored.
It will be gratifying to the many
friends of Mrs. E. H. Norris to learn
that under the skillful treatment of Dr.
E. F. Parker, in Charleston, her sight
has been completely restored. Her
son, Mr. Robert Norris goes to Char
leston tonight to accompany her home.
Mrs. Norris for some time had been
afflicted with cataracts on both eyes
and her eyesight had so completely
failed that -she could scarcely dis
tinguish any object. Some weeks ago
she decided to go to Charleston and to
have an operation performed by Dr.
Parker. As stated, the operation was
A Troublesome Dog.
A little black fice dog caused consid
erable trouble in town Saturday and
Saturday night. It got into several
stores and would fail to go out, except
by main force and an attempt at fight.
[t bit a little negro porter at Mim
naugh's store. It was put out of Sum
mer Bros.' witha hoe and pitchfork and
ran up into Dr. Boozer's office, where
it remained until about 9 o'clock Sat
urday night, when several gentlemen
finally had to kill it to get it out. It
fought to the last and no one could go
Struck His Wife,
Saturday night Tony Moore, colored,

ately and has not been seen since.
