The exported has happened, and
Camden has severil nti-i'Huf hiiimII
4 Juix. The announcement Saturday
evening that there were three cases
of smallpox at the Mellon Hotel
rented general consternation, and
there WR3 a rush to be vaccinated.
At first it whs thought that the
, "disease which has been gradually js
of the town will co-operate the an-
thoritiert do not apprehend a fur
tliur spread of the disease here.
Mi:i:ri.Nti oi- iin.KSs.
preailmg here whh clncken-iox,
and several persons in town and
Vf surrounding country contract
ed it, hut th disease- is probably a
mild form of Biv.allpoi: and none of
the cases have proved atal or even
-e rious.
A meet ing f t he cit i.eim of Cain
den was held Monday night at tlto
store of St infill tV l'otts for the pur
pose of discussing plans by which
to prevent the further spread of the
smallpox. E. (J. Flowers waselect-
ed president and W. 1). Cooper was
elected secretary.
A motion war made by Henry 1
Stigall and seconded by Bertram
Johnson, to nk the board of health
to quarantine r11 houses in or near
town that aro or have been affected.
When the disease wns declared jie lotif,n XVH8 j)nt in the form o
to bo smallpox, the Melton Hotel
andeveral houses where it exists
have been placed uuderuarantine
restriction ami every precaution
wH be taken to confine it to the
families and localities where it is
now found and prevent its further
spread if iKissible.
While the statement that there
cs smallpox here is rather startling,
it is nothing new, as it Iirs been in
the county every since last suuiwer.
It was first brought to the negro
settlement in NYy-lys Bottom by a
? i egro. No prec a u t. i o n a r y m e as u r es
'tie then taken to prevent a spread
of the disease, and it has gradually
spread to town through the negroes,
who said nothing about it. Its ap
pearance in town has been so grad
al, many thinking it was chicken
)ox, that no alarm was felt and
those who have contracted it were
endisposed only . short time.
There are less than a dozen
cases in and near town, and nearly
-9,11 of them are over it. Only one
a resolution and whs adopted
A motion was made and adopted
to request the town authorities to
insist that there be no public gath
erings, such as church and Sunday
school, etc., for an indefinite time.
It was also recommended that all
parents keep their children off the
streets; this to apply to children up
to the age of 18 years.
A motion was made and adopted
to furnish a copy of these .proceed
ings to The Camden Chronicle
for publication.

In all probability Camden r iJL
enjoy a building boom during th
present year. Ah -m well Known,
a good Ftart was made last, suiumw:
and fid!, rnd at one time there wa
as niRny as nine buildings goin
up at one time, and tho mechanics
have not lost any time tdnce thou.
Aside from this there is already
a bug" amount of building contem
plated, and much of it is already
contracted for.
Then there m the proposed new
Baptist and Christian churches.
which will l,e a great addition tr.
the town, and the new Methodist
Church will be -completed as fcoor.
as the weather will permit.
More than this, there is the pro
posed hotel building and four new
briuk business house in prospect.
Several fine residencHi are also
being considered, and some smaller
ones will be built.
There is a movement oil foot to
establish a -cannery here. This U
not an idle dream, and wj -confi
dently predict that Camdeu is-ou
the eve of enjoying a building boon:
unrivaled in the history of the town.
In this connection it would be
well to again call atteution to the
fact that dwelling houses are con
stantly in demand. There has been
a number of people here looking
for houses, but thety are all occu
pied and some of thetr. by two fam
fdea, which is -not conducive to
good health.
Camden being already en educa
tional and business center, it seeme
to us that more money eonld be
well iRvesled'in euitable residences
to accommodate a desirable -chat-
ecter of citizens.

have to realize is that the world is
full of dishouest people. We do
not refer to those people whose dis
honesty takes the form of stealing

consists of relieving you o your

friendship in your presence and e
corresponding amount of enmity
when out of your sight There Rre
few places eo favored as to escape
the contamination of these wolves
in sheep clothing, and it is ft matter
of deep regret that some of their
victims are created so unsuspect
