owing to the lack of leadership Hie

her instantly. The woman's sister,
in trying to interfere, had her arm
burned badly frpm the fire of the pistol.
The woninu dropped instantly
in r. pool of blood and the fiend es
caped through a back door.
A posse of about 200 men, black
and white, gave chase, and lie was
caught about a mile no-lb of town.
Tho father nnd brotVr of the dead
woman were in the lead of the crowd
and were tho ones wbo first caught
him. They bad Just found biin and
would have killed h'.m with slicks nnd
stones but for the timely arrival of
Deputy Constable Ed Ncale, who arrested
him at once and brought him
to tho city, followed by nn angry
mob of people.
Cries of "Stt ug him up!" and
"S'oot him!" we c heard above the
loud talk, but no dcmonstiatiou was
made. He was taken to Jail, but it
was openly talked by the blacks that
they would not permit a trial to be
hrd in tho com s. Everything is ex-1
Ilcmcut, and there is no sympathy
for the brute.
The woman killed was a favorite
mong the colored people, and her
death will likely be speedily avenged.
Two of the shots sfuck the woman in
tho arm, two in the heed and one
pierced her heart. Tho family were
in another room at the time of the
killing, nniL;c sister who rushed in
was hurt on the arm aud fainted. It
was thought for a while that he had
killed both until toe sister revived.
The cause of the minder was n trip

was intending to make. To tills he
