ed With Crime.
Aiken, July 29.-The little town of
Kathwood, on the southern edge of
this county, is greatly e&cited over
what appears to be the most foul mur
der that that community has ever
known. Levi Chavous, a negro, was
brought to the Aiken jail tonight and
charged with the murder of C.~S
Prina-les, a white man. A hat identi
tied as Pringles', a tin can used when
fishing and a skull are tihe only re
mains of the apparently murdered
man. These are now at the office of
the clerk of court in Aiken.
Pringles was missed from his home
on the 3d of July. It was t'hought
that he had gone quietly away, but
a few days ago some suspicion was
aroused concerning him and a search
was initituted. C. H. Johns, a friend
of the deceased, went into tihe Savan-.
nah river swamp to search for him.
~His boat, for Pringles was a fisher
man. was found at its usual place, and
further search revealed a skull, the
hat of P.ringles and a can used by
'im for keeping bait in. Nothing~
further could be found of the body or
bones. The skull, hat and can were on
the bank of the river, and it supposed
that the rest of the bones were wash
ed into the river or carried away by
