Andrew Thompson Legally Pays Pen
alty for Nameless Crime at
Andrew Thompson was hanged in
the jailyard at Greenville on Friday
shortly. after 11 o 'clock. The negro
was convicted at the last term of the
of the "Ven(ral SeSS1011 cOUr-t of crim
inally assaulting Mrs. James, the wife
of a farner living near Tavor's Sta
tion, in this county. ,Lynching." was
narrowly averted at the time but the
execution was regular and the law's

says, "in the east and west who are

when a strong prejudice was felt
against women craft-workers, and
that Americans preferred to buy their
