Le^al Notices.
From and after the 1st of January, 1879,
all advertisements of Sheriff Sales ordered
\ to appear in either the Camden Journal
or the Kershaic Gazette will have to be paid
for in advance?the money mutt accompan^
the advertisement in every instance, otherwise
no notice will be taken of the same.
It is useless to assign the "reason which
urges the undersigned to this course, as it
is patent to the members of the bar that
both papers have accounts for advertising
Sheriff Sales which have been long past
due, and many of them will never be paid.
Ire cannot work for nothing.

Chritmas Tree?The teachers and
scholars of the Presbyterian Sundayschool
have a festival and Christmas
tree to-night at their lecture-room. A
merry Christmas and a happy time for
all of them.
Bad Road.?We are requested to
call the attention of the County Commissioners
to the miserable coftdition
of the road and bridge near the Shannon
old place. The bridge is almost
impassable, and it is very dangerous to
cross it in its present condition.
Cold Swimming ?A gentleman of
ll^J
western Wateree wtio was compmeu m
be in Camden on Monday to attend to
some business here, attempted to cross
by tho way of the ferry, and after leaving
the boat he came to a place where
the horse had to swim about two hun.
dred yards, with him on his back, bofore
they reached dry land.
Fiue.?On last Wednesday night
abont a quarter past eleven o'clock, fire
was discovered in Mr. J. W. McCurry's
store. The alarm was sounded and the
firemen were soon upon the spot, when
the fire was quickly extinguished. The
damage done amounts to about $500?
no ineurancc. More damage was done
by the smoke and water than by the
fire. It is supposed that the fire was
accidental?ratsgetiing hold of matches.
The Planter and Farmer, pob?
' so
lished at Jtticnmono, ra., ??, <?* a j-??
for December, is received. It contains
65 pages of reading matter by some of
the best farmers in the country. The
articles of Hon. A Dudley Mann, of
France; Judge Wm Fullerton, of New
York ; Judge Christian ; Prof. Pendleton,
of Georgia, and Col. S. W. Ficklin,
are entitled to special mention as valuable
articles for the farmers.
Shot.?On Monday night, while
looking around the wagon camp in D.
W. Jorden & Co's lot> Tom Cook,
colored, was shot in the hip by some unknown
person. Two shots were heard;
?... nC irhir>h hit Tom. Mr. J. W.
UUC V* wmw
Gaskios was arrested and locked up a9
the party who did the shooting, but he
stoutly denies it. He had upon his
person a small seven-sbot Smith & Wesson
pistul two chambers of which were
empty. The wound inflicted upon Tom
is not considered dangerous.
Auction Sale ?There will be a
large lot of 6ne new car/ages, buggies,
spring wagons, etc., sold at auction io
Camden on Monday, the 6th of January,
and any person desiring anything in
this line would do well to attend it
The work is all new and first-class, and
from the largest and most complete fac*
tory in the world. You can get any
kind?twoseatcd cariages, phaetons,
spring wagons and top bugaies. Now
is the time if you want a bargain. Re
member, Monday the sixth.
State's Evidence.?Some daring
robberies and other acts of rascality
have been committed in and around
Camden lately, and no cine could b?
obtained as to who the thieves wer<
Mnt.il Den Love, who was arrested i
short time since for killing Mr. Clementj
cow, took it into his head to tell. H<
has made a fall confession, and all bui
one of the parties have been arrestee
. and locked up. There were three o:
them, Ben Love, Jako Patterson anc
Harry Curetoo. They were the onei
who entered and robbed Mr. Ellis'.ston
last fall. We hope that the next Conr
will send them where they will not hsv<
I a chance to steal again for years t<
' come.

' number of people who intend to sweai
off on the 1st of January from all theii
' bad habits, and turn over a new leaf
can be counted by thjusands; yet we'l
wa<rer that in six months from date the
new leaf of nineteen out^of twenty will
be as black as tho old one is now.
Council Notice-?By resolution of
Council, shooting of rockets, fire-crack?
? ?j c 1._ ?:n v.
ers, uuu urv-wurns win ue priuuucu
the streets of Camden on Christmas eve
night, Christmas day and Christmas
night and no longer. The Bring of
guns and pistols is strictly forbidden.
Any person or persons violating th^
same, will be arrested and confined in
the guardhouse twenty-four hours, aDd
no other peualty imposed.
Acknowledgment.?The Journal
begs to acknowledge the receipt of a
jcomplimentary ticket to the play at
Cramer's Hall, in the inolosure of the
Lunntic Asylum, in Columbia. We
accepted the same, and cannot bestow
too much praise upou the managers of
this institution for the admirablo way
in which everything was conductod. The
play was very fine, and the poor unfortunate
inmates enjoyed it exceedingly.
It is truly commendable, and we beg to
tender our sincere thanks for the com
pliment.
The Fourth Freshet.?Watcree
River has overflowed its banks again,
for the fourth time since fall, and crossing
'at Camden has been stopped.
Some people attribute the frequent over
flows to the embankment built across
the swamp by the Wilmington, Columbia
& Augusta Railroad. Whether
such is the case or not, we cannot say ;
but we do know that there has been
at least twice the number of freshets in
a season since the embankment was
built that there was before.
The Poll Tax.?We were surprised
to learn that the article which appeared
in our last issue in reference to the
poll tax has beeb so construed by some
of our citizens ts to reflect npon Trial
Justice DePass. Mr. DePass was only
executing the lawful duties of his office
in imprisoning those men. The law
was made by the Legislature, and be
had it to execute. We intended no reflection
upon him or any other of our
county officers. The only reflection was
upon the Legislators who allowed such
an unconstitutional act to pass the House
Trial Justices.?In order that our
readers may know something of the
workings of our inferior courts, we have
obtained from Justice DePass the following
information relative to proceedings
before him during the fiscal year
endinsr Nov. 1st. 1878 : No. of warrants
applied for 260; No. issued. 185; amount
of accounts against the County, $190/
urnouot of fines collected and turned
over to County Treasurer $54. This is
a very eood showing considering the
fact that Justice DePuss transacts about
one-half the entire criminal business of
the County.
.Southern Surgical Institute,
Atlanta, Ga.?Dr. J. W Gurley,
Professor of this justly celebrated institute
will visit Camden January 6th.
and remain three days, stopping at the
DeKalb House. He will come fully
prepared to treat all cases of Club Feet,
Spinal Disease, Diseases of the Bye and
Ear, Catarrh, Paralysis, Piles and Fis
tulc.?, Chronic Diseases, Diseases of the
Joints, Female Diseases, Hairlip, Cleft
Palate, Indolent Ulcers and Tumors.
Private diseases which are curable or
can be benefited. For further particulars,
address Dr. Gurley, Southern Surgical
Institute, Atlanta, Ga.
Badly Cut.?We learn that William
Boykin, colored, while on his way hotne
last Saturday night, and when just on
the outskirts of Kirkwood, was set upon
by masked tnen who cut him several
times, some of the stabs beiDg very
dangerous. No cause can be given for
tKit it matr Kotto Kaon

on account of an old family feud.
From remarks made at the time it is
presumed that they want to lay it up*
on the whites, because William was one
of the witnesses against the so-called
intimidators who were taken to Colum?
bia recently; but all the circumstances
point to the negroes who are aftex
avenging an old wrong.
A Novel Idea.?Last week we were
shown a very simple and, to us, nove
affair at Mr. Meroney's mill, for siftinf
the meal as it comes from the mill, anc
throwing the bran off to ooe end. It ii
no inconvenience whatever to the miller
as he can sift any quantity that may b<
I brought?from a half peck to any nam
p ber of bushels, and is not one-tenth thi
trouble or cost of a boltrng'cloth. - ?
: f \r. t u U
ine lUYcuiiuii ui mi. u . u*
says that he cao also muko prarl grits a
( cheap as mealand'as good as any in th<
market. The attachment is nothing
more than a long bos with a sifter bot
torn, which is placed S'> as to catch th
meal a? it c >m 'S fr mi the mill, and th
it motion i? giv.-n to it by an eceentri
wheel placed oa the spindle, thus sift
f ing all the meal before it reaches I
r box below, and throwing the bran <
r into a bog at the end. The attachme
. can be placed on any mill at a very sm;
I cost.
