Greenville, Dec. 15.?After a sleepless
night of reflection on the fact that
the life of an innocent child had b en
ground out beneath the wheels of his 1
speeding automobile and that he had |
not paused to lend succor to the dying
boy or speak a word of regret to the
heart-broken parents, D. B. Jenkins, a
well-to-do farmer of the lower section
of the county, and his 16-year-old son,
Clyde, came to the city this morning
and surrendered to the sheriff as the
parties guilty of the death of little
Irvin Wrenn, who was fatally injured
on Augusta street Saturday afternoon :

Jenkins stated that he had his wife,
two daughters and his son in the ma- '
chine at the time of the accident. The t (
eon was driving the car and said that
he realized he had run over the boy ]
and probably injured him fatally.! <
When questioned as to why they did ,
not stop after running over the child,:
the boy stated that he wanted to stop, (
but the women in the car became
frightened and insisted on his speed- '
ing off. j
After arriving at home, it is said, J
the family went to a neighbor's house J
and talked the matter over, and tnat '
the father and son were advised to
come to the city Sunday morning and 1
surrender. The two drove to town
this morning and went to the home of .
the dead child. Upon finding that the '
family had gone to bury the child, i
Jenkins and his son started back to-1
ward the city, when they were met
by the sheriff and the chief of police 1
and taken into custody.
The police entered charges of reck- i

Mr. Searle declared that since testifying

RABID FARM MULE
BREAKS INTO HOUSE j
Mad "Critter'' Enters Charlie Chapman's
Home at Night and After
Breaking Up Furniture Shot.
Spartanburg Herald, 14th.
Aroused from their slumbers at 4 '
o'clock yesterday morning by a furi-!
ous battering an the front door of!
their house, near Boiling Springs, j
Charlie Chapman, who lives on J. D. .
Collins' farm, and the members of j
his family jumped hastily from their;
beds to find _out who was trying to j
batter down the house at that un-,
earthly hour of the nightime, when (
suddenly thf door fell in with aj
fearful crash and Mr. Chapman's ;
fine farm mule gave a furious snort
and plunged into the room and cavorted
around at a furious rate, putting
the occupants of the house to
flight. It was a fearful moment f
Mr. Chapman and the members of
his family, for they were in constant
danger of being struck by the iron
shod hoofs of the rabid animal or;
being bitten. The mule lunged and j
pitched about th? house, rising up:
first on its legs and pawing the j
floor and snapping at everything in j
sight, then kicking up its hind l*\gs,!
knocking tables, chairs and other
pieces of furniture into smithereens.
When the mad muleMirst br-oke
into the dwelling Mr. ChapjfcUJ was
so unnerved that he lost
himself, not knowing: just

ered himself, however, and made a
d<vperate effort to get the annual
( at of the house, though he dared not
venture ( lose to tli; rabid inule. He
threw open all the doors, thinking perhaps
that the mule in its mad career
about th ' house might perchance leap

free himself and family from all dan- .
ger of serious harm. His muleship,
however, refused to leave the dwrlling,
but held the fort, as it were,
smashing pieces of furniture in first
one room and then the other by its
Kabid Mule is Shot.
After trying for more than an hour
to put the mule to bight and failing
Mr. Chapman decided to use force and
arms in regaining possession of his
home. Securing his gun and after seeing
that it was heavily charged he
opened fire cn the mad animal. When
the first shot was fired into the mule's

about ihe room like a whale struck
with a harpoon. He fired again and
again the fifth shot putting the mule
out of business.
There was 110 more sleep for the
members of the Chapman family after
their exciting experiences with the *
mad mule. When daylight came Mr.
Chapman called at the home of several
neighbors, related his unusual experience
and asked that they come over
to his place and assist him in removing
the dead carcass from within his
house. The news spread rapidiy
through the country and many farmers
from the surrounding neighborhood
gathered at the house and aided Mr. j
Chapman in getting the dead animal'
out of the house, which was no small;
Gentle the Previous
In telling his friends- of the incident,
Mr. Chapman said that the mule!
appeared to be perfectly gentle when;
he fed his stock the night before. He
entered the .stall occupied by the mule
and placed the corn in the trough and ;
the animal showed no unusual symp-'
toms, but on the other hand, appeared ;
to be perfectly docile. Aftef feeding!
the mule he securely fastened the door
to the stall. During the night the animal
became afflicted with rabies,
broke down the door of the stable and J
made for the home of his owner and !
proceeded to break into his house.
Mr. Chapman is unable to account
for his mule going suddenly mad and
if the animal was ever bitten by a
rabid dog he is not aware of rhe fact
