and he was then taken home. It was
itated last night that he was resting
fairly well. Sheriff Ashley wau sup
posed to be In Greenville last night,
but The Intelligencer was unable to
get him over long distance.
Everything is Quiet.
It Is said that everything Is now
inlet In the Thro3-and<-Twcnty sec
Ion, since lt has become known that
tho negro Is not hiding there. All
lay Wednesday citizens .searched thc
aurroundlng communities for Lesley.
Lesley has a twin brother living in
.\nderson, and so much resembles
tim, that It Is diliicult to tell the two
ipart. Some of the citizens of the i
jpper section of the county wore In I
tho city, and one of them saw Les
ey's brother who lives here. He nt
mee thought he had found the nc
;ro who is wanted, but soon found
that ho was mistaken.
Rewards Hare Reen Offered.

The oiprure of Steve Lesley, the
negro convict who ls wanted for at

rhd-Twenty section of the county "on
Tuesday morning, will In all prob
ability bo only a matter of a few
hours, since- Sheriff Ashley ac. De
puty Sheriff Sanders have duos that
will lead to his whereabouts.
After spending- two days In
searching for the negro, it waa
loamed yesterday morning that Asa
Kay. colored, had taken Lesley to
Piedmont.earlier, In the day to catch
a train. The train' for Columbia lott
Piedmont at 9:05 and the, train for
Greenville left there at 9!37. It Is
: hardly probable that the negro went
to Columbia unless he took the train
on the "blind" side, since only one
ticket was sold to that destination,
ind tho ticket agent knows tba'. ' it
was not to Lesley. It ls thought he
took the train for Greenville.
Asa Kay, the negro who took les
ley to the dopot. Was arrested yes
terday about noon, and ls now In the
WBtody of Sheriff Ashley. Parties
'rom Anderson who went up in that

ipon their return that Kay had been

the past two days. These'gentlemen
also stated that the clothes Lnsllo
were wearing had been stolen from

that in addition over $8 had been

ERNEST HAROLD BAYNES TO
LECTURE THIS AF
Will Be Given This Evening and
Will Be One of Most Pleas
ing Feature of Week
Tho grand concert last evening by
the White Hussars under the big
chautauqua teat was Indeed very
good and thoroughly enjoyed by An
derson music lovers. The Hussars
mado a splendid appearance lu thelt
immaculate costumes. There .are
only thirteen In the company, but the
musical effect approximated a band
of 20. The program also Included
several vocal choruses which were
encored ?everal times.
Today is bird duy at the chautau
qua. This afternoon Ernest Harold
Haynes wjll give a lecture entitled,
".My Wild Bird Guests." Mr. Baynes
is one of America's' well known na
turalist and one who has the en
dorsement of Theodore Roosevelt
and John Burroughs, and it was dur
ing the former's administration that
he wan commissioned to formulate
plans for the , .-coservation of the
This evening tho program will In
clude the Bird Masque, "Sanctuary '
and pageant. In presenting the
"Sanctuary," an attraction of more
than pleasing interest is offered. It'
will be recalled that Miss Eleanoi
Wilson, at one time took an impor
tant part in the "Sanctuary."
The following is said of this fea
ture of the chautauqua:
Mr. Baynes, 'who took the part ot
Shy, the Naturalist, iu the original
cast, will appear as the same charac
ter in the chautauqua production.
Mr. 'Percival Vivian, who will be re
membered for his excellent acting
with the Ben Greet Players in form
er years will take the part of the
i Faun. Miss Katharine Brown, long
I identified with the highest class ol
professional theatrical production?.
WlH play the part of "Orals." There
are six speaking parts, each as
signed to a competent actor.
A delightful -Woodland setting will
be secured through a newly invented
process for throwing pictures direct
ly on the air without the aid rf a
tareen. This invention is so rece??,
that lt has not y?t baen shown west
of New York. Au illusory effect ot
forest, trees and--flitting birds nt
beautiful plumage, will add greatly to
one's appreciation of this Masque.
In fact, it will sst a now precedent
in chautauqua stage setting.
At tho close of an old English mas
que the actors and many of the
spectators came trooping on the
stage in a grand finale of merriment
which was the signal for the break
ing up of all formalities. We shall
carry out this pleasing feature by
having a goodly number of the local
children mount tho .platform dressed
to represent the different bird spirits,
and thus the masque will come to an
