ing, in tho Mount Enon suction ol'

colored, was killed outright and his
wife, Carrie, so badly bruised ami
hacked about tho head that she will
probably die. Cleo Lindsay, colored,
is in tho Saluda jail charged with
tho murder.
Responding to a call, Magistrate
J. C. Dollie and Sheriff H. !<\ Sample
went to the scene of the crime early
Saturday morning. Dogs were ob
tained from Newberry and a trail
fellowed from the scene of tho out
rage to the house of George Farrow,
on the Newberry side. Hero Cloo

ing and manner further convinced
tho officers of his being implicated,
and after some questioning ho is
said to have confessed, and impli
cated Robert Farrow as bis accom
plice. Farrow is still at large and
is described as a black negro about
:'S years old, ."> feet ;i inches tall and
weighing about. 1*15 pounds, with a
sour on the neck, and bas been mak
ing his home at Asheville. N. C.

verdict to the effect, that Snttcrwhito
canto to his death at the hands of
Cleo Lindsay, and recommended that
farrow be helli for further investi
gation.
According to Lindsay's alleged
confession the motive for tho kill
ing was robbery, they having under
stood that Satterwhito's wife, who
taught at tho Mount Loon colored
school, had cashed a school claim
or claims for about $100. Satter
whito was called out of his house
and lured off down tho road n littlo

said. The men then returned to the
house and beat his wife into insensi
bility with the same instrument,
while three littlo children, tho old
est about six. screamed and ran
around the room. These children re
mained at tho house until found
early Saturday morning.
The community is much incensed
ever (he crime, and the people, both
white and black, gave the olllccrs
??very assistance possible.
