Negro Who Says He Is From New
berry Tried to Cut Preacher's
Throat at Troy.
\ (;reat exeitenelt preva.ed at Troy.
in Greenwood couinty. Thur.day after
notbn over a murderous "sIault made
by a, negro upon Rev. R. F. Bradley,
the lii-hly esteemed pastor of the
Associate Reformed Presbyterian
church at Lonz Cane. The negro.
John Subgr, came from Georgia some
months ago and was employed by
Mr. Bradley upon his farm.
The negro re-ented some order or
reprimand given y Mr. Bradley and
made an attack on him with a knife.
Mr. Bradlev' was cut twice, once o)
each side P his throat, and also had
a long across his back. The ne
gro at once fled.
Sheriff MeMillan, as soon as the
,news reached home, left in an auto
mobile for Troy. The dogs owned by
the county were at Epworth, some
twenty miles from Troy, but they
were at once ordered to the scene.
Mr. Bradley was one of the most
highly esteemed citizens of the coun
ty. He is about sixty years old and
a leading minister of his denomina
tion. and is known all over the state.
The serious condition of Mr. Brad
ley caused all interest to center up
on getting a physician and the negro
had plenty of time to get a good start
before pursuit was instituted. The
crime was committed about 2 o'clock
in the afternoon. Mr. Bradley and
his 16-year-old son were with the
negro setting out potato slips. The
negro was doing his work very poor
ly. Mr. Bradley reprimanded him.
'The second time the negro picked up
a roek and threw it at Mr. Bra'dley,
striking him on the right eheek, in
flicting a terrible blow., which dazed
him. though he did not fall. The ne
gro then drtw his pocket knife, made
a long gash on one side of his th_roat,
another on his arm and then across
his breast and still another, the long
est gash of all, down his back. Mr.
.radliy's son, it is said, strudk the
Snegro with a hoe, but the cutting was
done almost before either redized
what the negro intended to do. Mr.
Bradley was at once carried to the
house and medical aid summoned.
Arrested by Clinton Police.
SGreenwood, July 20.-Ther negro,
John Suber, who made the savage
attack upon Rev. R. Foster Bradley
at Troy Thursday, was captured this
morning at Clinton by Chief Reed
of that place. Chief Reed did a splen
did piece of work in capturing the
negro. He received a postal card
description of him at 7 o'clock this
morning and at 10 o'clock he had his
njon in a cell. He brought him to
Greenwood shortly after on the Sea
board southbound vestibule. The
nezro confessed the crime to Chief
Reed. Sheriff- McMillan, not know
ing- that Suber had confessed, had
a son/~ of Mr. Bradley to identify Su
The young man says his father is
ding as well as could be 'expected,
-but that he gets very little rest.
Chief Reed of Clinton says he saw
the negro drinking water at a pupip
this morning and saw he was a strange
negro. As he walked away he no
tietd the bow legs and thien felt sure
he had the right one. Later on when
arrested the negro at first at.tempted to
get off by plausible tales of being
When asked why he (lid it, Suber
told him he had to do it. Said Mr.
Bradley "hollered'' at him, that then
he just got mad and ''had to do it.'
Suber says he is from the Five Forks
section of Newberry county. This is
prbably not his first offense. He
is now in jail and there is no fur

House Cleaning. re
The good housekeeper never tears it,
the whole house igside out at once. On in
the contrary, she takes one floor at a h
time, beginning at the attic and de- B.
scending, last of all, to the cellar. In I4
the attic, first, the waste paper, old
shoes, old garments and dilapidated
household utensils naust be cleared ta
out. Everything for which no good W
Iuse can :e aa:.d should be destroyed. W
It is foo!!sh to let old things that one de
ne::. uses accumulate around a house. thi

vytoclean window glass is as fol- B:
ow:Take apail ofclean, warm wa- gr
ter and pour into it about a tablespoon- d
ful of kerosene, stirring the oil into the d
water. Have plenty of clean, soft w
loths and a good sized soft chamois Q
leather. First wash the window withm
the kerosene mixture, then dry it with I
a cloth, polishing finally with the leath
er. This removes all lint. Wash the
floor of your attic last, then let it su
nd dry, and it will be ready to have
its belongings put back in.
Next day tackle the bedroom. Take
rugs, carpets. curtains, draperies and
mattresses into the open air and beat
and brush all dust out of them and
give them a good sunning. While they
are out clean the rooms as you did the
attic. To cleanse varnished and oiled
woodwork and furniture pour some 4
kerosene upon a soft clean rag and rub
thoroughly. The work will be well
done, and the odor will soon pass away.
This is the time to examine all bed
steads and the walls to see that no ver
min are lodged therein. Here, too, the'
good housekeeper will find kerosene in
valuable. It will destroy vermin and
their eggs if liberally applied.
Carpets may be washed after they
are, tacked down. Use warm water in- ,
to which some liquid ammonia has
been poured, a scrubbing brush and
plenty of clean dry cloths. =
For the third day of cleaning do the
parlor, front hall and stairs, after that
the dining room and kitchen and lastlg
