John A. Davison. A large collection of spring’s choicest flowers sent by
loving friends attested the esteem in which she was held.

Miss Mamie Haile daughter of Mr and Mrs B. F. Haile, died last Monday
morning after an illness of only two days. She was in the fourtheenth year
of her age, and for her sweet and kindly disposition, was beloved by all
who knew her
A particularly sad death occurred in the home of Mr W. M. Hinson on
last Wednesday morning. Henrietta, his little daughter, three years old,
was eating piaders last Monday afternoon when she sucked one on the hulls
down her windpipe. Every effort was made to remove it but without avail,
and the little sufferer died at the time stated above. To add to the anguish
Mr Hinson was away from home and did not return before his little daughter
died. Oh, the anguish of that fond parent's heart who left his little
child apparently in no danger, to return to find it cold in death!To the
grief stricken father and mother we tender our deepest sympathies and may
they find consolation in the fact that though their little one cannot return
to them, they can go to her. The funeral took place at 3 o'clock on Thursday

A Sad Death
Mrs W. T. Hammond
Possibly one of the saddest deaths that ever occurred in Camden, was
that of Mrs W. T.
Hammond last Monday evening about 7 o'clock. She had not been sick
long and her death
was entirely unexpected. She leaves eight children- one boy and seven
girls - the youngest of whom was two years old the day the mother was buried.
The funeral services were held at the Baptist church conducted by Revs.
John Ferris and W. C. Fail. The interment took place in the cemetery. The
heartbroken husband and his little children have the deepest sympathy of
the entire community.

W. B. Welch
A brutal and most coldblooded murder occurred at Haile's Gold Mine
kon last Saturday night. Mr. W. B. Welch, the seventeen year old son of
Capt. J. V. Welch of Kershaw, was shot to death by Chalie Loyd, colored.
It is said that the negro had no provocation whatsoever to commit the act.
Immediately after the shooting Loyd absconded but was hotly pursued by
a posse of men from Kershaw and was overtaken and captured in
Monroe, NC on Tuesday night.
