FEI PAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 11.
A Terrible Punishment.?A private j
letter from Dale county, Ala., gives an ac
count of the cremation of two colored men j
who had assaulted Miss Fralish, a respecta- j
ble young white lady. Miss Fralish, who is
the daughter of one of the leading farmers
of the county, was alone at home a few
nights figo, the rest of the family being
abroad on business. Two colored men
walked uu to the gate and said they wanted
something to eat, as they had been travel?
ing a long distance and wore hungry. The
young lady, not dreaming of ill intent, told
them to go around into the back yard,
where she would give them some bread.
No sooner had she turned her back tore en
i .t the bouse than a big black hand was
clasped around her moath and she was lift
ed up and carried into one of the rooms.
When tho family returned they found the
i?ir( in a faint from which she was, with dif?
ficulty, brought to consciousness. Her story
-<<? the neighbors wild, and parties of men
1 ut oat in all directions, running down
?? public roads and scouring the woods.
(>ne of tho parties ran down two men near
ll'undige, whose manner wa3 such as to
on Arm suspicion o' their guilt. They were
taken to the Fralish residence, and as soon
as the young lady set her eyes upon them
she cried, "They are tk;? men : their faces
are burned into my sou! ?o that I can never
forget them." The negroes cowered before
her gaza and admitted their guilt. A trial
followed, and the people decided that the
two men should be burned to death. A leg
pile was built upon tho Bide of th" public
road, and the negroes were chained each
between two heavy logs. Then ibo four
logs were chained together, bo that the wild?
est contortions of the wretches could uot
shake them. A fire was kindled which soon
blazed up and enveloped the" bodies of the
victims. Their cries were most pitiful as
the flames burned into their fieeh The
cries grew fainter, the tiro oooled down, and
only ashes were lefc to tell the horri 1)1 e story.
"Her faco so fair, as flesh it seemed not,
But heavenly portrait of bright angel's hue,
Clear as the sky, without a blame or blot.
Through coodly mixturo of complexions due
And in her cheeks the vermeil red did show."
This :5 the poet's description of a woman whose
physical system was in a perfectly sound and
healthy state, with every function acting proper?
ly, and is the enviable condition of its faiyatrons
produced by Dr. Pierces "Favorite Prescription."
