Yesterday a gentleman, accompanied by
his wife and her sister, went to look at the
unoccupied apartments with the view to
renting them for a law office, they were
guided by Mr. Wells. who not only was
ready to show his willingness to have
a neighbor under the samne roof, but he
was anxious. When the rooms was reached
the young lady started into one, when she
was obstructed by the handsome tom of
the guide and advised not to enter that
room; womanlike, her curiosity was aroused,
and to her dismay and the guide's chagrin,
the place resembled a blind tiger after a
visit of State constables. The whola place
was covered with beer bottles, corks and
tin tops. Tben, of course, the guide was
set in motion to explain that they were not

circumstances, anct we regret exceedingly
that we have been unable to get Governoi
Ellrn t looknat the case as we do.
A Ghastly Georgia Scene.
A horrible crime was committed
about two weeks ago near Newnan,
Ga., a few miles from the city of At
lauta, by a negro named Sam Hose.
Alfred Cranford, an unassuming far
mer, after his day's work was done,
was sitting at his supper table with
his wife and child, and while discuss
ing the meal, Sam Hose crept into
the room from behind, and sank an
axe to the helve in Cranford's brain.
The fiend then tore the child from its
mother's breast, flung it upon the
floor into the blood flowing from the
father's head. The horror-stricken
wife and mother was then seized,
thrown upon the floor, and, in the
blood of her husband, ravished.
Hose made his escape, and crowds
for ten days kept up a constant
seach for him. He was finally caught
and turned over to a sheriff, who
later turned the wretch over to a
crowd that would not listen to per
mnitting the law to take its course.
Ex-(Governor Atkinson endeavored to
reason with the crowd, without avail.
He told them that the law would
punish the wretch, and begged them
to return the prisoner to the sheriff.
The governor's words had no effect.
At a place one and a-half miles out
of Newnan, at a strong pine tree, the
the beast was permitted to talk. He
said: "I am Sam Hose. I killed Al
fred Cranford, but I was paid to
do it. Lige Strickland, the negro
preacher at Palmetto, gave me $12 to
kill him." "Let him go on. Tell all
you know about it," came from the
crowd. The negro continued, said:
"I did not outrage Mrs. Cranford.
Somebody else did that. I can iden
tify them. Give me time for that."
The crowd would hear no more.
They chained him to the tree, satur
ated his body with oil, and with
knives cut off his ears. fingers and
other parts of his body and passed
them around. He was butchered by
piece meal and then set on fire and
burned to death, amid the yells of
the maddened crowd. The crowd
fought for place about the fire, and
when it burned down they secured
pieces of his carcass for souvenirs.
The next day "Lige Strickland,"
the negro preacher, was found and
he was lynched also, in spite of the
fact that his employer told the crowd
that Strickland was an innocent man.

something to aid the good people of Char

J. W. Mo LEOD.
We are not in business for pleasure only; we want a reasonable profit
on our- goods. We don't propose baiting our people; we want to deal
~honestly, and thereby keep your trade. If we offer cloth at 5c per yd., we
will sell a bolt, or a bale, or all we have at that figure; because you may
rest satisfied that we are not selling below cost. We have a credit to main
tain, and do not propose selling goods below cost and then fail at 50 cents
op the dollar.
If we advertise goods at 5 cents we will sell at that price all you want,
and not try to sell you something else, or sell you only a few yards of it, and
then try to make up on something else. If we get bargains we give our
customers the benefit of our bargain prices, but we are not so desperate yet
as to offer gold dollars for 89 cents. Our customers may always depend
upon uniform treatment. We are home here, we were raised here, our
.friends are here, and we expect to retain their respect and confidence and
friendship. No man can sell goods below cost, and treat his creditors and
customers right; there must be some deception somewhere. A word to the
wise is sufficient.
Cheap Dry Goods.
No lady or gentleman can coolly and calmly examine our immense stock
of 'Dry Goods, Notions and fine Millinery without being fully convinced

we now offer at 10c; you should see this line before you buy. Here is an

half yards wide, only 12jc per yard; sold everywhere at 20c p'er yard. You

each. The prettiest line of Ladies' Ready-Made Black Skirts ever shown in
this town at $1.50, $1.75 and $2.00. Colored Skirts from $1.25 up.
