On Way From Olar, Scene of Attempted

Olar, March lo.?mroe negroes in j
charge of two constables on their ;
"way from C-!ar to Bamberg to be lodg- J
ed in the county jail were taken from'
the officers by a mob at Odom's bridge,

to pieces this afternoon. The mob of
75 to TOO men surprised the two constables
and quickly securing the three j
negroes finished their work in shon j
order. The negroes are: Alfred Dub&
lin, 25 years of age; Richard Dublin,
30 years of age, and Peter Rivers, 40
years of age.
All three of the negroes had con~
- ?1 -4.T
ressed to attempting to ourn uie
"house of J. E.- Cook, mayor of Olar,
early yesterday morning. On February
21 a destructive fire occurred in
th-e business part of the town, resulting
in much loss.
Found tlie Fire.
A fortunate firenmstance prevented !
Mr. Cook's house from sacrifice to the
flames. By the merest .chance he
came from his house to the porch yesterday
morning about 5.30 o'clock. He
was surprised at a glow coming apparently
from the beneath the floor
and on investigation found a pile of
"fat" splinters burning and an empty
Dome tnat naa contained tne 011 useu
to start the fire. With several buckets
of water he was able to extinguish the
blaze before serious damage had occurred.
A rigid investigation followed the
attempt to burn the mayor's house. ,
In view of the fact that indications at
the February fire pointed to incendiary j
origin, the search was even more de- j
termined than might otherwise have
been the case. Bloodhounds were used
in the pursuit, but to little avail. One
negro was arrested last night, however,
and the other two today. Without
being allowed to see or communicate
with one another they were close

All Bad Negroes.
All three are know locally as "bad"
negroes. All had had trouble with Mr.
Cook. Peter Rivers had been convict-j
| ed of illegally selling whiskey and Mr. |
Cook, as mayor, had fined him $100. |
The two Dublin negroes had been
discharged from the employ of Mr.
The negroes were held in the guard
housp at Olar until the confessionsi
were obtained and then it was decided !
* to send them to the county jail at j
' Bamberg. Two constables started this j
afternoon about 3 o'clock on the 12mile
journey with their prisoners.,
Olar was in a state of comparative;
quiet prior to the departure of the of- j
ficers with their prisoners and no I
violence was anticipated although the j
necessity for a speedy trial had been

Just what happened when seven
miles of the trip had been safely trav-'
eled i^ more'or less conjecture. It is],
only positively known that at Odom's
bridge a determined crowd, number-;
"ing from 75 to TOO men, dispatched
the three "fire-bugs," using bullets as
the means of execution.
I An inquest will be held over the
bodies of the three negroes at Olar
tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. ,
Sheriff Got News.
.Sfreriff Hunter, of Bamberg county,j]
said over the long distance telephone, <
from his home at Bamberg last night ]
that he was advised of the arrest of j l
the three negroes and was about to i <
start for Olar when he wag- advised j i
that the nesrroes were already on the' \
(way to Bamberg. He then abandoned j
\the journey and shortly afterwards j
"was notified of the lynching by Magis- <
'trate 0. J. C. Lane. A deputy sheriff j t
"had gone to Olar, but did not travel j<
the road used by the Olar officers and
arrived there after the lynching at; Odom's
bridge. Sheriff Hunter and ,
the solicitor will go to Olar today for j,
an investigation. '

Florence, March 11.?A *well-known!"
and highly respected woman, the wifej
of a well-known railroad engineer, was :
attacked here tonight by a man unknown
to her. and who made good his
escape before assistance reached her.
The lady had gone into thp yard for
an armful of wood and as she reached
down to pick np the wood she was
seized by some one from behind. She
screamed and mad-? an effort to free
herself from his hold, and in doing so
the person making the assault tore
her dress from her person. After gettin^
frp#> from his srrasn slip rail
screaming to the l^ous-e and by the
time assistance arrived the fellow had
scaled the fence in the darkness and
The place where the offense was
committed is just one door, south on
Gaillard street, from East Evans, and
within four doors from where little
Andrew Jackson was taken. The af
fair, following so close 011 the mysterious
disappearance and murder of the
Jackson child, has thrown the women
and children who have heard of it almost
into hysterics, and the men, who
were congregated in groups in the
er.stern seciicn 01 tne city, are swearing
vengeance against the culprit
should he be caught. Arrangements
are being made to secure bloodhounds
if they can be gotten quickly.

A BALD-HEADED WOMAN.
Slioru of Her Crown of Beauty, Loses
in Love and Marriage.
Hair is certainly most necessary to
woman. Who could love and marry
a bald-headed woman? What charms
could one array to offset such a dis
A woman's goal is usually love and
marriage. Her crowning glory is her
hair. The loss of her hair mars her
beauty, happiness, and success. Yet,
right here in Newberry, there are thouonrjc;
nf women whn are neglecting or
injuring their hair to such an extent
that it is only a matter of time when
it will be utterly ruined.
Many women destroy the beauty of
their hair through thoughtlessness or
ignorance of certain facts. They use
curling irons over-heated, or to excess,
which destroys the natural oil
of the hair, causing it to split, break,
and come out. They do not shampoo
their hair often enough, or too often.
They use soaps or preparations which
contain ingredients positively harmful
to the'scalp and hair.
As a result of such treatment, dand
ruff is created, the hair loosens, loses
color, falls out, and baldness commences,
unless proper and prompt
precautions are taken in time. Then
again, microbes and certain diseases
bring about unhealthy scalp and hair
