.ather of Boy Appeals To Mob
M. E. Brazel, the father of Wil
lam Brazell, the slain taxi driver
i a statement given The State yes
erday made a personal appeal a
ainst mob'violance, asking that the
fficers be allowed to hring the pris
ners to trial and punishment un
"I am a law abiding man," Mr.'
iiazell said, "and though I know
hat no punishment, however cruel,
ould be possibly be too severe for
lese men, yet I would prefer to see
tie law be allowed to take its course,
'he lynching of the three men, or
ivo of them, cannot give me back
?y boy and it may possibly cost
ie life of some of my friends or my
?urdered boy's friends. It is the
worn duty oft the sheriff to protect
is prisoners and I should not blame
im for protecting them from a mob
any more than I should blame him
for risking his life to hold them
should their friends attempt to res
cue them. If I were in the sheriff's
plac? I should hold them if it cost
me my life and I now expect the
sheriff and other officers to do like
wise.-I should be true to my oath;
they will be true to theirs.
"The representatives of the law
first arrested the men, who other
wise might by now have made good
their escape, and I know that the law
can be trusted to hold them and . to
punish chem for their brutal crime.
The death or injury of a sheriff or
of some friend of mine or. my boy's
will not help me . ? ear my loss. If
I were to read tomorrow *that Fox
and Gapping had been lynched I
should feel no better or h?ppier than
I do now. These men have broken
the law and will be punished without
delay by the law. The lynching of
them will not make their punishment
more certain. The law has done its
part inn capturing. the murderers
and obtaining the evidence against
them; it will do the rest by punish

in person to men, supposed to he
members of the mob, asking them to
discontinue any efforts to take the
men from the hands of the officers.

searching party which located the
body of the slain boy near Leesville

of the killing in all its horrible de
To My Mother, Mrs. A. F. Ouzts,
Who-Wcnt Home Aug. 19, 1920.
Just one short year since you left us,
Ages and ages it seems,
Often and often I see you,
I see you only in dreams.
Always I am bending o'er you
Striving to relieve the pain;
Then I grieve, to find as always,
That my striving is in vain.
I had ever tried to shield you
From the storms that blew without,
I had often felt their ragings
Toss, my weary soul about.
When our efforts prove so fruitless,
Then it is God does his part,
Thus it was He came and took you.
Safely to his home and heart.
I am thinking, mother, dearest,
Of the time, when not in dreams,
We shall be again together,
Where love in perfection streams.
. -r. ..
Where the cloud is golden sunshine
Where the rain is heaven's dew,
Where the .Light is always shining,
There around His throne for you.

af the paper, although easily the
largest of any county paper in the
state, if not in the South, is less than
