Spartanburg Herald, 8th.
Bound and gagged by a desperate
but gentlemanly burglar, who kept
her lying helpless on the floor while
he drank wniskey, smoked cigarettes
end paid her delicate compliments'?
such was the remarkable experience j
of Miss Lilly Calmes, pretty 18-year- j
eld daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William!
E. Gaines, in their home at Xo. 320 j
South Liberty street yesterday afternoon.
Returning home from a shopping
trip about 5:45 o'clock, Mrs Gaines
found Miss Lily in the plight described
in the sitting room in the front of
the house. The door and front win-j
dow of the room were locked and en- j
trance was obtained through a side
window. When the chains with
which the girl's wrists and ankl ,s
were bound and the flour sack with
which her mouth was stopped ha#!
been removed, Miss Lily related the
Btory of her experience?a story
strange as fiction.
Overcome While Dozing.
trvlfl hnw stho. was nvprnnrtlft
while dozing on a couch by a welldressed
and seemingly cultivated intruder,
a middle-age white man of
striking app'earance, accompanied by
a giant mulatto, who seemed to stand
in great fear of the white man. She
told how the white man, leaving the .
negro to guard her, ransacked the
house, and then, apparently finding"
nothing to his liking, returned to the
room to flatter her with nicely turned
bonmots on her personal appearance;
how, after amusing himself in
this fashion for perhaps a half hour,
in the meantime draining a good part
of a bottle of liquor, this Raffles in
real life ordered the negro to leave '
and departed himself through the
6ide TTindow five minutes later, and
juet about 15 minutes before Mrs.
\ f Buglar Leaves Note.
There was found a note left by
the buglar?almost an apology for
diBturbing the serenity of the house- v
hold. The girl, he said, would be
found unharmed; his purpose in regard
to her had been fell, but his
chivalry had come to the rescue.
The police were notified of Miss
Lily's adventure and are making a
^ search for the villian, of whom they
^ave been given a minute description
by the herione of the affair.
Miss Gaines was alone in the house <
when it happened. Her father was 1
at his- work in the shop of the Spartanburg
Machinery company. The
vonneer children wer^ nlavinsr in ai
* v ?
vacant lot. Mrs. Gaines had gone' i
shopping. Miss Lily had intended to |
accompany her mother but decided
not to go on account of a headache.
She lay down on the lounge in the
sitting room, which is in the front
part of the house on the ground floor,
and read a book unci she became j'
drowsy. ' i
Awakened by Hand.
The girl fell asleep. It was about
4:30 o'clock, as nearly as she can ;
reckon, when she was awakened by i
feeling a hand on her mouth. She;
looked up into the face of a man?
an unusual face, with a deep scar, as
of a sabre cut, on his face, and piercing
blue eyes and raven black hair,
She heard a sweet and refined voice,
tell ner genuy dui nrmiy not 10 maKe j
an outcry, as he did not intend to j
hurt ner. j
Miss Lily says she struggled furi-j
ously and struck the man a sharp j
blow in the face, maaking his nose j
bleed. But he overcame her and stuff- j
ed a flour sack into her mouth and I
held it in place by strapping a white
woman's belt, the property of her;
mother, around her head. The burglar
then fastened her wrists with a'
dog chain, securing it with a lock j
and a psice of wire. lie bound her\
ankles with another chain and laid
her on the floor in the middle of the i
room. The dog chain belonged to j
Miss Lily's little brothers and was j
found by the burglar in the yard.
Bids >'egTO Guard Her.
The burglar told the negro to sit
opposite the girl in a rocking chair.
"Don't you move," he said to the;
burly black, "unless the girl moves, j
If you do, I will shoot you."
The mulatto shivered, according toj
the girl, as if in a state of terror, j
but said not a word.
As nearly as she could follow his
movements, the burglar crossed the
iiall into Mrs. Gaines' bedroom, which |
he proceeded to turn topsy-turvy,pulling
the drawers out of the bu-.
reau and dumping their contents on j
the floor. He seemed to be searching;
for money, but his search was futile, J
Pjointk? Vi-ir? nil t.he!
do JL1 O ww.w-4 ^
money with her when she went downtown.
The burglar then went to the dining
room, where he found a bottle of |
whiskey on the sideboard. Mr. Gaines
was given the liquor for medical purposes
several days ago. The man carried
the bottle and a glass back into
the sitting room. With a sweep of
the arm he knocked the bric-abrac
off a little table and drew it up beside
the prostrate figure of the girl, j
He leisurely poured out a drink,
lighted a cigarette, and leaned comfortably
back in a chair.
He Talks to Her.
In his rich musical tones he talked
to the young lady. She was unwilling
to repeat what he said. His
language was that of a gentleman,
she asserted, but modesty forbade
her to make his1 remarks public. Suffice
it to say, she told The Herald,
that he flattered her. ?

there, offering her soft blandishments
she said. The negro sat in j
silence, quaking. A livery boy came J
on the porch and knocked at the
door. Getting no answer, he walked
into the hall and laid his bundle'
down, tJien went out again. The mya- j
* 1 -'I- I
terious burglar ciranK neavny ui iue
Miss Lily had an excellant opportunity
to study the man's appearance.
He was between 35 and 40 years old,
about five feet, nine inches, tall, and
weighed about 175 pounds. He had
blue eyes, jet black hair, and a diagonal
scar about two inches long on
his right cheeck.
Had feen Him Before.
She remembered having seen him
pass along South Liberty street and
and also recalled having seen him on
Main street last Thursday. He was
smooth-shaven then, however, and
now* wore a false moustache.
He w<Jre a neatly fitting dark blue
or black suit, a turndown collar, a
white silk necktie with a green snake!
woven into the design, tan shoes and j
a black derby hat.
The. negro, she said, seemed to be!
nearly seven feet tall. He wore over- i
alls, a wooly gray cap and brand
new patent leather shoes, which
squeaked when he walked.
Orders Negro to Leave.
After a while the white man told
the negro to leave, and the latter did
so with alacrity. The buglar then
locked the front window, took the
key of the door leading from the sitting
room to the hall out of the door
and laid it on the piano, and locked
the door with a key of his own. He
examined the girl's chains to see
that they were secure, and then left
the room through the side window,
breaking the glass.
After a while the little children re
turned from their play and sat down j
011 the front porch. Wien Mrs. j
Gaines came home about 5:45 o'clock j
sbe, asked her little son Y. illiam
where Lily was. He answered that
he did not know. Miss Lily moaned
so loud that they heard her.
When they found the door and the j
front window locked, Frances, the
little sister of Miss Lily, went around .
to the side window and saw her lying
on the floor chained. Mrs Gaines
was greatly agitated and went to the j
telephone and called the police and J
Mr. Gaines. '

through the side window and un-j
loosed the chains. J. M. Crawford, a |
neighbor, was called, and forced th?j
door open. On the table, where the i
whiskey stood, was the note left by
the burglar. It was written on sta-'
tionery which Miss Lily had been j
using earlier in the afternoon. There j
were only a dozen words, more or
less, and they were in capital letters
euch as are used in print. The note
was turned over to Policeman "Wallace

W. T. Cudd on Case.
W. T. Cudd, formerly police lieutenant,
was assigned to the case by
Chief Moss P. Hayes. With Mr. Gaines
and Miss Lily the officer watched the
crowds at the railroad station last
night and also at the "movies." Three
men were seen with scars matching
that described by the girl, but the i
other distinguishing features were!
Mr. Gaines was very anxious that
the story he kept out of the newspapers,
thinking publicity might cause
the rogue to flee, and thereby embarrass
the police. When told that
it would be impracticable to keep the
story a secret and that full publicity
would probably be the best method
with which to apprehend ttfe burglar
he consented, and Miss Lily gave a
full account of her experiences.
Curiously enough, the burglar did
not steal a thing, so far as was learned

Members of S(. Paul's Congregation
Have Juterestiug Program of Exercises.
The State, 10th.
Having reached its majority and added
four additional years of prosperity
and growth, St. Paul's Lutheran church
is proposing to pause a few days between
the old and the new to look
! back in a series of silver anniversary
services to its history and forward tc
its opportunities before launcl '^g the
campaign for a "greater St. Paul's,'
which includes the building of a granite
structure in the corner of Blanding
and Bull streets, plans for whict
i olrcorW hpon nriontpd hv ttlf
church plans comittee. The congregation
has grown in 25 years from a
charter membership of 39 to 402.
Present Church Too Small.
The present frame church on Blanding
street has become too small for
the growing congregation, as was evidenced
last Sunday, when many people
were turned away from the rally
day services, the church and Sunday
school room being filled to the doors.
Rev. H. A. McCulloush completes this
week his first year as pastor of St
Paul's. In his first annual report to
the congregation on Sunday he mentioned
a gain of 66 to the communicant
membership and 11 to the baptized
membership during the year and
a summer parochial school under the
direction of the church council with
an attendance of 57 children of the
church, as among the encouragements
of the work. In the 12 months of his
pastorate Mr. McCullough has gotten
the work of the congregation well
in hand, and has given evidence of his
ability as a. leader and pastor. Under
his direction the congregation is
planning larger activity and a wider
sphere. The special anniversary services
will begin this evening at 8
The program committee has been
exceedingly fortunate in securing
speakers. In this day of lay activity
a church program is scarcely complete
without at least address from a
layman. Prof. S. J. Derrick, of Newberry
college, and A. H. Kohn, of Columbia,
will be the lay speakers. Prof.
Derrick made a splendid impression
on the congregation as one of the
speakers at the educational rally last
spring. Mr. Kohn is superintendent
of St. Paul's Sunday school, and is one
of the business men who makes a busi
ness of his religion. He puts into his
church work the same kind-of energy
that he expends upon his business. No
speaker more competent could have
been chosen to give "A Backward
View" than Dr. \V. H. Greever, who
was for many years the greatly loved
pastor of St. Paul's and under whose
pastorate the congregation gained the
majority of its present membership.
Dr. J. Henry Harms, president of Newberry
college, is always greeted with
delight by a Columbia audience, whether
Lutheran or not. Dr. Harms returned
today from King's Mountain,
where he was the speaker at Monday's
celebration. He is in demand whenever
good speaking is required. Rev.
Prof. D. H. Bauslin, dean of the Hamma
Divinity school, Springfield, Ohio,
was born in that town of historic Lutheranism,
Winchester, Va. Dr. Bauslin
has continued the records he in
herited, doing a work as pastor, editor
and theologian that would require
the talents of three of the usual run
of men. As editor of the Lutheran
World, dean of the Hamma Divinity
school and member of many important
general committees, Dr. Bauslin
has projected the influence of his life
throughout the length and breadth of
American Lutheranism. As a speaker
he has a never-failing force and fertility
of expression. He will be heard at
St. Paul's Sunday morning and night
and at the Y. M. C. A. in the afternoon.
The closing feature of the anniversary
will be a reception at the new
Y. M. C. A. on Monday evening. The
reception committee consists of Miss
Alice Earle and Mrs. J. E. Boozer.
