Convicts Lynch Negro.
Convicts in the Wyoming peniten
tiary lynched Frank Wigfall, the ne
gro assailant of Mrs. Esther (Gran
ny) Higgins, aged 72 and known aa
the prisoner's friend. Wigfall waa
rushed to the penitentiary to escape
a mob on the outside. While at
breakfast the guard was overpower
ed before he could thrust the negro
into a cell and himself locked in a.
cell by the infuriated convicts.
One of the cqnvicts produced a
rope and while others held the negro
he tossed a half hitch over the ne
gro's head and made the other end
fa9t to the balcony rail of the cell-
house. The negro was tossed over
the rail and the convicts marched
back to their work.
Not until the cries of the impris
oned guard brought other guard3
was the lynching known to any esr
cept those who took part in It.
Sunday night Wigfall broke into
Mrs. Higgins' house, chopping down
a door with an axe. About dawn
Monday he left her in a pitiful condition.
Tomorrow morning the sacrament
of the Lord's Supper will be observed
at the First Presbyterian church.
The officers of the church will meet
at 10:30 and any persons desiring to
unite with the church by letter or
profession of faith are invited t
meet with them.
