Colwcll Smith dropped a hoard
down in his well, at his homo a few
miles from Shiner Sunday and
started to seijd his little ,ton-year-old
boy Morris down in tho bucket
to recover it. Just as tho littio
fellow got a few feel below the sur

twenty feet to the bottom of the
well. Fortunately there was only
two or thrco feet of water 'in tho
well, else he would have drowned,
As it was he received an ugly scalp
wound and was severely cut and
bruised. His father descended tho
well as rapidly as ho could, expect
ing to find Morris dead. Taking
him in his arms ho held him up

to raise them to tho surface, Tho
little fellow was unconscious for

was riding a dark bay horso with

west of Shiner, w hen three men on

negroes or whito men blacked up
to disguiso themselves. Opinion
differs about this. Mr. Ilagens

were negroes. Ho said: ''Tho men
