WEDNESDAY, DHU. 2i, 1902.
InMho silence utter midnight,

Shepherds watching in the starlight
Waited for the morning glow.
While the lambkin and the folder
In tho silvered quiet still,
Slept against tho purple shoulder
Uta broad Judean hill. _
lint those shepherds woke and listened,
For within ii radiant plaie,
They saw angel forint Unit glistened
Coming down a golden .-lair.
And while earl h was filled wit li music,
And thoRe folders knelt to pray,
"Alleluia!" sang the seinphs,

An Outrageous Affray.
A high-handed outrage was commit
ted about I o'clock .Monday afternoon
at a point about ;? miles on the Wil
liainsion road, within half a mile ol'
Hun k;; Church.
A wagon containing one white man
and tiv?* negroes, all drunk, first met
jlv. Walter Anderson, ordered him out
of the road ?nut cursed and ..bused him.
Tiny next met Ike Hodge, a negro,
coming to the eily with a loud of wood.
Ile was ordered out of the road und
cursed and when lu* remonstrated was
shot and bent and w ill probably ?lie.
The occupants of the wagon were
Frank Skelton, white, and Jim Mitch
ell, Townsend Rouse, Will Wintrier,
Hob Hardy and High Johnson, negroes.
They were en route toa saw mill on
William Gilliard's pince, to assist in
finishing u contract of sawing made by
Mr. Ferry Tate, and when arrested by
Sheriff Creen mid Deputy Davis, had
reached tho mill.
Walter Anderson was in consultation
with the .Sherill'about the indignities
done him, when a rumor came in bring
ing the tidings of the second offense.
Deputy Emmerson had been dispatch
ed for tho gang on ibo complaint of
Mr. Anderson, but when tho message
of tho second offense came, Sherill'|
Green went in person. He returned
about dark, bringing all of the guilty
When first arrested thc entire mob
stoutly denied the charges, but when
lo ought to jail confession was made.
Jon Mitchell is said to have done the
nluwliiig. Two shots were tired and it
is said that both took effect. The pis
tol was the property ot Frank Skelton.
Ho claims that he had it in a box in the
wagon. High Johnson first grabbed
tho pistol and jumped out and advauced
on tho negro Ike Hodges. He was
promptly knocked down with a rock
Dy Hodge. Jim Mitchell then grabbed
the pistol and did.tie shooting. He
sidea being shot Hodge was severely
beaten. Two ribs were broken and his
head almost crushed with stones. He
is still alive but his chances of ?recovery
Bond in the sum of $750 rh each case
wns fixed by Magistrate Dagnal. Frank
Skelton, only, wns released, his bond
being signed by his fathor, D. A. Skel
ton, and S. A. McCown. The negroes
were committed to jail.
lt is a great pity that nt a season
when men's minds snould bo tilled
with an event which appeals directly
to all that is noblest in man's nature,
and should till thr'.r souls with peace
and good will toward all, tho entire
Christian world is witnessing and hear
ing of deeds of violence and hatred
