A BRUTAL OUTAGE AND
A CRIME WITHOUT A la,
-if'It Vengeanie Mete i of
Out to the(- Guilty
It is with profound sorrow that we tie
Chronicle this week a crime that in pc
fiendish brutality is without a. parallel
in this State. A beautiful and noble of
young life ruthlessly blotted out by bo
fiends in human shape. and under cir- tut
cumstances so horrible that the heart sa
sickens at the revelation. Gladly would
we spare our readers the details of such P
crimes; but justice and a vindica- ab
tion of the community that took the law .
into their own hands demand that we Vi(
should give the facts.
Mr. Wm. Werts lives about two wiles Ca
from Prosperity in this County. Mon- F
day afternoon, the 17th instant, his Fa
daughter. Miss Bettie Werts, went from
her father's to visit her brother, Mr. i
Sain3'l Werts, about three quarters of a =ns
mile distant. Mr. Werts. thinking his by
daughter was spending the night at her
brother's, felt no uneasiness about her
till the next morning it was discovered fat
she was missing, and search being in
stituted she was found dead about half to
way between the two houses. Suspi- uw
cion pointed to two negroes, Dave P
Suearman and Sam Fair, who were Pr
working for Mr. Wm. Werts. Fair made
a partial confession to the effect that he
and Spearman were working in a field
by which the lady passed in going to
her brother's; that Spearman told himn h i
dhat he intended to waylay her on herdi
return. and that he did carry out his .
fiendish purpose. He denied having a
anything to do with the crime, but an
would give no reason for net nforming
Mr. Werts of Spearman's designs, al- Pu
though he had abundant opportunity b
for doing so. In addition to this, some
shreds from Miss Werts' zephyr shawl tv
that she wore and some of her hair wa3 re
found on Sam Fair. The negroes were
:arried to Prosperity and locked up in he
the guard house. A post mortem ex
mination by Dr. Langford revealed JLI
that a most diabolical outrage had been
:ommitted. The news spread rapidly, d
ad the citizens of the surrounding ri~
:ountry began to gather in Prosperity
uesday evening in large numbers. J
The testimony before the Coroner's in- Sh
quest put the guilt of the negroes be- R.
ond the shadow of a doubt. The re- Cl
suit was certain; there was a unanimous Ici
resolve that the brutes should meetH
swift vengeance. The first idea was to
wait till 1 P. M. Wednesday and hang ba
t he two negroes together ; but as all the
orrible details of the crime becameM
known the indignation and rage of the M1
rowd could not brook so long a delay. m'
So about 1 A. M. Wednesday the guard le]
house was broken open and the negroes P.
taken out. Sam Fair was shot there, to]
and left for dead, and Dave Spearman B(
was hurried off to the scene of the crime M
and tied to the tree behind which he W
ad waylaid his victim. He was told P.
that he had only a few minutes to live,M
nd an opportunity was given him to hr
make a statement. He then made a
tull and detailed confession. His con'-t
fession, in its details, is too horrible for m]
print ; the eutlines of it was as follows: I
'e two negroes worked for Mr. Werts
laist year; they had for nearly a year Fr
past been centemplating committing
this crime whenever the first opportuni- pe
y offered; Monday afternoon when tei
they saw the lady pass the fied going an
to her brother's they laid their plans; so:
he himself hid behind a large tree on WV
the path and awaited her return; as she ra
came along he seized her, tied a cloth tit
around her neck to prevent any outcry, Ti
tied her to a tree, went for Sam Fair, ga
and they returned together and accom- Hi
plished their brutish purpose, repeating his
their visits time after time during the Fi
night. He didn't knowv what time of 'A
the night she died. After she was dead ar
they carried her body a short distance TI
in the~ direction of her brother's house. tir
lie told where he had hidden the cloth st<
with which he had gagged and chQked of
her. Being released he wvent straight ce
to tie place and found it. He was then M
retied to the tree, and a volley of lead Bi
from guns and pistols was poured into ce
his body, killing him instantly. The er
paity then rode away. fo
In the mording it was ascertained in
that Sam Fair was not dead, but had az
escaped. Vigorous search was institu- os
ted; and he was tracked in the direc- so
tion whence he had come and found at i
his mother's house not far from the a
scene of his crime. When this reporter ar
rode into Prosperity Wednesday morn- ti<
ing at half past 11 the town seemed al- ar
most deserted. Going on in the direc- di
tion of Mr. Werts' he met a crowd of 52
25 or 300 men coming on toward Pros
perity bringing the negro wvith th'em in
a buggy. Desiring to see the business ri
through he turned and rode back with y(
the crowd. Reaching Prosperity theyC
took the negro out of the' buggy, and .t
two physicians examined his wounds.

Mr. Birge's house they went a mile out
a pine thicket on the right hand side
the road, nearly opposite Mr. Andrew
nard's. One of the party climbed a
ie, and put the rope over a limb and
the end down. In an in$tant the r
ute was jerked up about live ftet in
air, the loose end of the rope was
d securely, and the crowd quie.ly dis
rsed to their several homes.
T'rial Justice Wheeler, acting as Cor
er, held an inquest over the dead q
cly of Miss Werts, and the jury re- r
-ned the following verdict: "That the

The negroes were about 21 years old. e

PERRY, G.A., .April 14, 1879.
I have watched the use of the medicine
low know.vfas "Swift's Syphilitic Specific"
ine the year 1827-over 50 years-and have
lever heard orf a failure to cure when proper
-; taken. I commenced the use of it on my
;laves, between 1850 and 1855, and as also
li a number of my neighbors, and in every
usee that came within my knowledge it ef
eceed a cure. In 1835 my brother-in-law,
3eorge Walker, bought at auction a slave
orotwarrated. After the purchase it wa
liscovered that he had had Syphilis for
welve years. His head wa withonut a hair
>n it. ie treated him with this remedy, and
n fur weeks he wvas sound and well, and in
t short time bad as fine a head of hair as
was ever owned by a negro. He owned this
;lave many years, and he never had any re
:urn of the disease, nor lost a day's work.
['hisis sonly one among hundreds of instances
>f remarkable cures made by this medicine.
