Mr. W. E. Oiteen, of Camden, Fatally Injured
While Crossing the Railroad on His
Way to His Farm.
Camden, December 14.?This morning
Mr. W. E Osteen was on his way out to
his farm, several miles east of Camden,
and when he got to the crossing over the
Southern Road, near the station, he was
caught by the south-bound train. His
horse seemed to stop right on the track,
and although the engineer made every
effort to stop the train he was too near
Mr. Osteen to stop in time to save him.
The horse was killed, and the buggy was
literally torn to pieces, and why its occupant
was not killed instantly is a mystery.

Robbers Assault Mr. J. W. Price.
Last Sunday night, while driving to his
home which is about a mile and a half
distant from town, Mr. J. "W. Price was
accosted by three men at the corner of the
colored Baptist church lot. One of the
number called out to Mr. Price to stop,
but seeing that they were armed with long
clubs and knowing that he was unarmed
save for a good heavy walking cane which
he had in the buggy, he very wisely increased
the speed of his horse. The attacking
party was not to be outwitted in
this planner, as was very evident, for they
at once began to pursue in a run and soon
v??m Onfl seized the bridle rein
and brought the horse to a sudden stop,
the second coming along side the buggy
attempted to seize him while a third attacked
him from behind with a club.
Just as soon as he could Mr. Price picked
up his walking cane which lay beside him,
and began to wage war on the villains.
The one at his side he struck down at a
single blow, then turning his attention to
the one in the rear, dealt him several also.
Just at this juncture the one which had
been knocked down regained his speak"
ing faculties and set up a yell of pain
which was enough to alarm the neighborhood.
The other two realizing this,
sought safety in other parts and Mr. Price
was allowed to proceed on his way.
Their purpose was evidently robbery,
as they were heard to say one to another
"Go through him d quick," as soon as
they stopped him. It being dark and the
parties being colored none was recognized.
We have no other description save th'at
they were tall and black and wore ragged
hats. _

Ashburnham, Ontario, Testifies to the
Good Qualities of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy.
Ashburkham, 0>t., April 18,1903.?I
think it only right that I should tell you
what wonderful effect Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy produced. The day before
Easter I was so distressed with a cold and
cough that I did not think to be able to
take any duties the next day, as my voice
was choked by the cough. The same day I
received an order from you for a bottle of
your cough remedy. I procured a sample
bottle, and took three doses of the medicine.
To my great relief the cough and
cold completely disappeared and I was
" able to preach three times on Easter day.
I know this rapid cure was due to your
cough remedy. I make this testimonial
without solicitation, being thankful to
have found such a Godsent remedy.
Respectfully yours, E. A. Langfeldt, M.
A., Rector of St. Luke's Church." To

Edgefield, December 14.?Mr. u. it.
Durisoe, one of Edgefiield's oldest and
most prominent citizens, after a brief illness,
died at his home in town, at 2 o'clock
this morning. Durisoe was a newspaper
man for practically his entire life and
from 1855 to 1873, was the owner and
publisher of the Edgefield Advertiser,
which he inherited from his father, a
distinguished journalist. He was mayor
of our town for several terms and also
. held the office of clerk of Court for a number
of years. A bright Mason, he will be
buried under the auspices of that organization.

continued some time. His wife sent for

The World-Famous "Little Georgia Magnet" at
Fitting School Chapel Thursday Night.
At Fitting School Chapel tomorrow,
Thursday- night, December 17th, Miss
Annie May Abbott, the world famous
i "little Georgia magnet," will- give one of
her extraordinary performances for the
benefit of Fitting School. She is known
in all countries as "the most wonderful
woman in the world," and her every performance
verifies the title. While the
little lady weighs but 103 pounds, 10
strong men cannot lift her while, quite
increaible to say, she can lift the ten men
who fail to lift her. Again, she will
touch a ten year old child, and the strongest
man in Bamberg cannot lift the child.
She gives a two hours performance of
similar wonderful feats, a committee of
local citizens being selected from the
audience to assist in and investigate them.
Her performance is so astonishing, and
.so entirely removed from fakeism, that
the opportunity to see it should not be
allowed to pass. As the Fitting School
will share liberally in the receipts it was
agreed to reduce the price of admission
to 15 cents for all school children, and 25
cents for adults, with reserved seats without
extra charge at Rhoad & Bamberg's.
Death of Mr. C. I. Barton.
Mr. C. I. Barton, a son of Dr. and Mrs.
D. W. Barton, died at the home of his
parents in this city Tuesday night. He
was a young man, about 2S years old, and
unmarried. He had been in bad health
for a year or two, but his last illness was
of short duration.
Many people in ail mis section win
regret to hear of his death, for he was
well-known and liked. Clever and genial,
he always had a pleasant word for all.
The burial is to take place at the cemetery
here to-morrow. He was a member
of the Knights of Pythias, and that order
will probably have charge of the funeral
services. >
The Guards' Prize Drill.
The committee appointed to arrange for
the Christmas entertainment of the Bamberg
Guards met last Tuesday night, December
8th, and after discussing the matter
decided to hold a prize drill on Christmas
day. Not that the Guardsmen lay any
special claim to selfishness nor that they
wish to deprive their friends of any
pleasure which might result from a more
extensive program, did they decide to
curtail the one formerly announced. * But
thev realize that there are quite a few
necessities, which go to make a first-class
military company, lacking, hence their
The proposed banquet and band concert

The committee has not fully decided on
the prize to be contested for, but it will
be costly and useful enough to make the
drill interesting to the men.
The progress of the work on the newgun
racks has unavoidably been delayed
by the recent church bazaar which was
held in the armory, but that being over
now the work will be resumed and pushed
forward to completion before January
1st. The -outlook for the approaching
year is very bright, and already in the
.dim and distant future can be discerned
picnics, practice marches and encampments.
It is rumored in military circles
that our next encampment will beheld at

that has witnessed many deeds of valor.

Some Comment as to Bamberg.
We made a Hying visit to Bamberg a
few days ago and having heard that it
was a live town we looked around (it being
about the dullest time of the week) and it
looked almost like a November sale day
in Barnwell.
It required such men as H. J. Brabham,
Dr. J. B. Black, Sheriff Hunter and others
of the like to explain the matter to a
stranger. Jar. uraonam, wnom we iaae
to be the youngest Confederate soldier, is
now engaged in caring for the almighty
dollar, of which the town seems to have
an abundance, he being president of the
Dr. Black, who is too well known
throughout the State to need any comment
from us, is a successful merchant
and physician, and while not a politician
is a member of the House of Representatives
from his county. And Capt. Hunter,
who lost a leg in the war between the
States, has lost nothing else. We were
royally entertained at his residence. We
should not wonder if he should turn out
to be poor some day, if he keeps such a
table as we sat down to and has much
It would seem, at a glance, that Bamberg
has an extra number of killings, but
when we come to examine the statistics
and think of the immense increase in the
inhabitants of various classes we have
decided that it is no worse than some
other places. The people appear to be
powerful rich and mighty poor; but not
being a socialist we found no great fault of
that, and not believing in luck we think
the people of Bamberg have made their
wealth by shrewd management and starting
off right.?Riah Mas in the Barnwell
A Correspondent Tells of our Enterprise Along
Many Lnes, and Suggests Other Things.
Perhaps there may be some few who
remember in a short account of my observations
of Bamberg, which appeared in
this paper last winter, that I said I would
return for a longer stay as soon as it was
possible for me to do so. I just left your
town a few weeks ago after a stay of
several weeks. In this time I visited all
of the places of interest which are in Bamberg
and on closer observation I can still
say that I am well pleased with Bamberg
and intend living there sometime in the
If you will permit one who is interested
in the town to suggest one or two things
which will, I think, help the little city
materially, I will feel very grateful to you.
My first suggestion is with reference to
your welcoming of strangers who come
to Bamberg, especially those who have
any idea of locating there. When one
wishes to find out anything about your
town, the inducements which it offers, the
educational advantages, the health and
such other things which are to be considered,
how is that one to gain the information
? He may look and keep looking,
probably getting the desired knowledge,
but would it not be much better to have
a business league or chamber of commerce
to advertise your advantages ? Then any
one could be supplied with a whole lpt of
secondary information which he might
not be able to obtain otherwise. Let there
be those whose duty it is to show the
visitor through town and urge him to
tal-o 11 n hie ahnd#> flmnn? von. In this
""uv """ a J
way many people will hear of your growing
prosperity and eventually cast their
lot with yours; new citizens with new life
will come in and help you to grow. So
advertise yourself to others, that others
may know you as those who are prosperous.
You may remember what a liking
I expressed when in your town before,
for your artesian water. There is nothing
better to be found in the whole state
when the question of water is considered,
than the ever-flowing wells of Bamberg.
Yet you let it waste, gallons and gallons
flow to waste when you might induce
travellers to come and share it with you.
Not only is it a wrong and an abuse of a
blessing to let it waste because of its
health giving qualities, but it might be
converted into a water-works system,
Here let me speak a word about the wells
of your town with reference to a different
matter. The condition of the streets
around the wells are such as to do the
town no good in any way. The health
officers should be instructed to have this
bettered. Sometimes I have seen the
street in such a condition that I wondered
how long it had been since the health
-^ J winftA. ?n/1 trVtQ 1

makes this stand out so clearly is that the
other part of the street is so well kept
You people of Bamberg have in you the
making of a live, up-to-date town, whj
will you neglect things which might be
the making of you ?
Your court house is a very handsome
building, the offices are as a general thins
well kept, but the floor which leads intc
the hall way at the front, is calculated tc
make one think that this is not the country
where spittoons are in use. Here z
general crowd meets daily, I understand
and has its discussion of politics and everj
thing in general. When the meeting has
broken up the marks left on the floor have
obliterated the remarks made by the assembly.
Of course it may be the fashion
to have stained floors but of tobacco juice
stains, I hardly think. Your jail is well

The bank of Bamberg is, I dare say one
of the best in the lower part of the State,
A flourishing business and competent offleers,
this insures the continued success
of thi3 institution. But why should there
not be another bank in the town? Nc
other town in the State with the amount
of business which is done in Bamberg, has
only one bank. Let your progress develop
itself and with it the interests of
every one will increase.
The cotton gin at the oil mill is a fine
business; with four hundred and ninety
saws to work day and night you should
be able to accommodate the trade of a
large part of the county. Yet when I was
there, wagon followed wagon in rapid
succession and still the business went on.
The oil mill company has invested in a
good thing and should one judge the business
of the town by the amount of ginning
done at the oil mill during the time I
was there, he would say that no town in
lower Carolina transacted more business
in proportion to size than Bamberg.
There are one or two other things which
T would like to mention here now but will
wait till some other time, they may not
be altogether complimentary but truth is
appreciated by those who realize their
is the value H. A. Tisdale, Summerton, S.
C. places on DeWitts "Witch Hazel Salve.
He says: "I had piles for 20 years. I tried
doctors and medicines,butaUfailed except
DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. It cured me."
It is a combination of healing properties
of witch hazel with antiseptics and emollients;
relieves and cures blind, bleeding,
and protruding piles, sores, cuts, bruises,
eczema salt rheum and all skin diseases.

This concluded the criminal business,
and Thursday was devoted to equity cases,
granting orders, etc.
Friday civil cases for trial by jury were
taken up. In the case of Butterfield vs.
Folk the jury found for the plaintiff the
land in dispute and $30 damages.
High Point Furniture Co. vs. E. C. Hays
resulted in a verdict for plaintiff for $460,
which is practically a victory for defendant,
as he admitted owing some four hundred
and fifty odd dollars.
Equitable Mfg. Co. vs. I. D. Copeland
resulted in a verdict for defendant. This
was a suit to compel payment for jewelry,
which Mr. Copeland claimed was so badly
mixed up that he could not make the invoice
check up, so he returned it. The
plaintiff claimed the goods had been properly
delivered to the express company,
and "that the carrier was responsible for
the bad condition of the goods when they
arrived. .
Miller & Miller vs. Rhoad & Bamberg
resulted in a verdict forplaintiff for $87.90,
the amount defendants claimed they
owed. This therefore makes ^he defendants
win the case.
The case of Baker vs. Murphy was dismissed
for want of prosecution.
