"Now that the excitemen

family of quiet farm ueople of

killing of the officer two power.
ful autos filled with officers and
their deputies with lightning
rapidity flashed up to the very
door of the farmer's home, and
just as the family rushed out
to see what the noise and con
fusion meant, the officere
mounted the steps with drawi
pistols and vile oaths, threaton
ing to kill the first one who
made- a break or acted suspi
cious. Imagine if you can the
consternation and excitement it
would eause a weak and nor

children raised in a home of cul

the point of pistols in the hands
of drunken men shouting thei1
oaths in a tone that was dis

living one half mile away. Tlh

There had come out that <iy
two men from one of the cotton
mill villages on business of per
sonal interest. The officers had
traced them to this farm home,
and when told these two men
were in the house they rushed
in and with abusive oathE
ordered them to strip themselvek
of their clothing. One, a lad of
16 years, had the exciting expe
rience of having the mouth of a
pistol in the hands of a reeline
officer pressed against the b~ar(
flesh over his heart while he wvas
brutally or'dered to remove his
lower garments, and all this ir

for the annoyance they ha<
caused. They seemed utterl:
