The Trenton Tragedy.
In the last issue _f The Iierald and
News our readers were given an ac
count of the murder of the Hughes
family at Trenton and the burning
of their home over the dead bodies.
The tragedy in itself was one of the
most horrible which has evr- shocked
South Carolina. but it ha- gr . more
horrible as the people of Trenton
have become convinced that the per
petrator of the deed was Mr. B. B.
Hughes himself, who after killing his
wife and two daughters. aged iS and
15 respectively, set fire to the house
and then committed suicide. There
has been no proof so far that Mr.
Hughes was the perpetrator of the
awful crime, but all facts have seemed
to support the theory. Of course, it
is believed he suddenly lost his mind.
He had been in the most comfortable
inancial circumstances, but it has
been said that he had recently lost
some money, and it is believed finan
cial troubles had unbalanced his
mind for the time being.
Mr. Hughes was one of the most
respected business men of Trenton
and his family life was, to all appear
an the most happy. Taken alto
g r the tragedy is one of the dark
est that has ever shocked this state.

The Spartanburg Journal says "the
best and most comforting and enjoy
able -things in the world are free
sunshine, fresh air, love, friendship,

the best part of it is that never can a
monopoly of any of theni be secured.
