Attorneys for the man and his so,
will appear before Judge Prince a
Andersen tomorrow and make appli

| The verdict of the coroner's jur:
came as a distinct surprise to prac
tic-ally everybody connected with th<
investigation. There was a genera
feeling that the jury, like the ordinary
coroner's panel, would hear a bit o

in Greenville county. Having finishec
their deliberations they filed out of th<

jury's finding scon spread through th<
streets, and there was a general feeling
of satisfaction over the fact tha

child's mother, took an active interest
in the investigation.
The incident has created not a little
feeling throughout the county, ant
