A QUEER STORY.
Dying: Man Said to Have Confessed
to Murder of His Wife.
I * *
The Charleston Post says a story is
being told in Colleton county that
Section Foreman Jones of the Atlan
tic Coast Line, while on bis deathbed
a few weeks ago, confessed to the
murder of his wife, who was killed at
Ravenel in May, 1902, and that
the three negroes, Jim Black, James
Ford and Thomas Pryor, who were
lynched for the crime, were entirely
innocent of it.
The murder of Mrs. Jones was one
of the most shocking ever committed
in the State. Her dead body was
found one morning during the latter
part of May in the dog house in the
rear of the yard with her throat cut
and her head crushed in from terriffic
blows delivered with some heavy in
strument. The body of the murdered
woman was discovered by her little
daughter, who reported to her father,
who was at work down the railroad
track, that her mother had been
killed. Hurrying home Jones found
'the body in the dog house and he>
seemed completely overcome with
It was believed that the crime was
committed by the negroes f<,r the pur
pose of robbery. The the;- us that
the negroes went to Jones residence
that morning after he had gone off to
work, killed Mrs. Jones and dragged
her body into the yard and threw it
into the dog house and became fright
ened and ran away before looting the
The news of the killing spread over
Colleton county and armed men start
ed in pursuit of Black, Pryor and
Ford, who, it is said, had been seen
near the Jones cottage on the morn
ing of the tragedy. About, three
weeks after the commission of the
crime Black was captured in Georgia
and he was brrught to Ravenel and
taken before Magistrate Behling, who
committed him to jail. While the
constable was en route to Walterboro
with Black he was met by a mob of
white citizens and the prisoner taken
to the scene of the crime and strung
to a telegraph pole and his body rid
dled with bullets. It was said that
before being lynched biae? confessed
the crime, implicating Ford and
Pryor. Ford is said to have watched
the house while Black auu Fij?i com
mitted the murder. Both Ford and
Pryor suffered the same fate as1 Black,
though at different times.
A short while ago Section Master
Jones was taken ill in Colleton coun
ty and after a few weeks he died.
Before death, however, it is said, ac
cording to tue story m uoiieton, tnat
he told his physician that he had
killed his wife. He said that he knew
he was going to die, but he could not
die until he bad told all about the
crime. He tnen recited the details
of the killing, saying that he killed
his wife while in a passion. Immedi
ately after making the confession he
is said to have turned over on his side
and breathed his last.
Colleton who are not disposed to at
tach any importance to the alleged
confession of Jones, declaring that it
was ouly the ravings of a dying man
whose,mind had become affected from
sickness and suffering. The story is
beinj? widely talked about in Colleton
Colds Cause Pneumonia.
One of the most remarkable cases of
a cold, deep-seated on the lungs, caus
ing pneumonia, is that of Mrs. Ger
trude E. Fenner, Marion, Ind. who was
entirely cured by the use of One Min
ute Cough Cure, bhe says: ''The
coughing and straining so weakened
me that I ran down in weight from
148 to 92 pounds. I tried a number of
remedies to no avail until I used One
Minute Cough Cure. Four bottle of
this wounderful remedy cured me
entirely of the cough, strengthened
my lungs and restored me to my nor
mal weight, health and strength.'

Do You Want Strength?
If you want to increase your strength
you must add to and not take from the
physical. In other words, the food
that you eat must be digested, assimi"
lated and appropriated by the nerves,
blood and tissues before being expelled
from the intestines. Kodol Dyspepsia
Cure adds to the physical. It gives
strength to and builds up strength in
the human system. It is pleasant to
the taste and palatable, and the only
combination of digestants that will
digest the food and enable the system
to appropriate all of its -health and
strength-giving qualities. Sold-by

AN INSANE SOLDIER
Visits the War Department and
Shoots Down Two Soldiers.
At Washington armed with a 38
calibre revolver, Wm. J. O'Brien,
alias Wm. Duffy, an insane discharged
soldier Thursday entered the war de
partment and goiDg to room 227 in
the mail and record division, shot
Robert J. Manning, a messenger, and
Arthur Wiecker, a clerk. Miss Emma
Saxton, another clerk, barely missed
being shot through the head. The
injury to Manning is on the right side
just above the kidneys and is regarded
as dangerous. Wiecker was shot in
the left arm above the elbow. Before
the maniac could tire a third time he
was overpowered by James J. Dawson,
a messenger. It required the com
bined strength of half a duzen men to
Dually subdue the man. Prominent
among them was Lieut. Gen. Adna It.
Chaffee,-chlef-of-stalf. The lunatic
still held the smoking weapon in his
hand when Gen. Chaffee* noticed it I
and with his left hand took the wea
pon from him and also the papers in !
his pocket. Majs. Kcan and Ireland,
of the surgeon general's stall, were
hastily sent for and gave first aid to
the injured men before they were
taken to the Emergency hospital.
O'Brien or Dully in talking to
Charles Brandt, the chief of the divi
sion, expressed dissatisfaction with
his discharge paperd. Then without
a word of warning he drew the pistol
from his pocket and aimed it directly
at Brandt's head. Brandt ducked and
the bullet entered the arm of Wiecker.
He then turned the weapon on Miss
Saxton and tired. She, too, dodged
and tbe bullet struck Manning.
O'Brien was taken to the police
station, it requiring four men to get
him out of the building. O'Brien
was admitted to St. Elizabeth's asy
lum in 1893. He later was paroled
but returned in 1897. He served In
Che Sixth cavalry ana Third artillery.
