Svlvania. Ga.. June 15. Arnold Au
gustus. Andrew Davis, Kichara dan
ders, lVm. Hudson and Sam Baldwin,
all negroes, were executed in the yard
of the county jail of Screven county.
The drop fell at 12:20. The necki
of four were broken by the fall. Th
fifth died of strangulation.
The negroes bore up well. They
sang at the laii ana aiierwaru
marched between a squad of soldiers
to the scaffold. Here they made a
short talk and received spiritual con
solation. They then drank lemonade
furnished by the sheriff and thanked
him for his kindness to them. None
of the negroes said he was innocenl
of the crime.
Throngs began to pour into town
at daybreak. The local company of
militia was augmented by 50 deputy
sheriffs and extra guards sworn in by
Sheriff Thompson. The crowd was
kept 75 feet distant from the gallows.
Five ropes were thrown over the main
beam of the gallows and the trap
was eight feet wide. Kain fell inces
santly. Une of the condemned men
said to his jailer: "After we are dead
there will be a flood."
Story of the Crime.
These five negroes were convicted
of a murder committed under an al
leged criminal conspiracy by an or
ganized band of blacks known as
''Knights of the Archer." The motto
of the organization, it is said, was
"Death to the Whites."
The murder for which the men died
was but the culmination of a long se
ries of crimes. It is common report
that the charter of this oath-bound
organization was signed in blood,
and the leader, Andrew McKinney, as
sembled his band onlv at niirht.
when he swore them, with awesome
rites, to secrecy and to deeds of
death and robbery.
On a night of October, 1899, Mil
ton Mears, a constable of Screven
county, Fillmore Herrington and
Capt. Jesse Wade started out from
Sylvania to serve a warrant for the
arrest of Joe Sanders, a young negro
wanted for some trivial offense. No
sooner had they reached his house
than a fusiladc began. From the
cracks between the logs of the cabin
and from a thicket of dwarf trees
close by ciime the flash of rifles and
6hotguns, and the three men fell des
perately wounded. Capt. Wade man
aged to crawl to his buggy and make
his way to Syhania, where he told of
Herrington and Meara were liter
ally shot to pieces. The murderers
escaped, but one after another, five
were arrested and placed in jail here.
These were the men who met death,
The others, inchiding McKinney and
the real lex ders of the Knights of the
Archer, successfully effected their es
cape, and have never been captured.

Many people have such a deeply-
rooted love for flowers that they
will go to any amount of troubl to
raise a few blooms, even under the
most apparently impossible circum
stances, says the London Mail.
Instances of this occur in the East
End of London, where sometimes the
onlv available erarden is a barrel. In
order to make the most of this how
ever, it is bored all over the ides
with holes about two inches hraiam-
eter, into each of which a plant of
some description is placed, in addi
tion to those planted in the usual way
on the top, so that a good display is
obtained in the minimum amount of
space. These barrels frequently look
very pretty and effective when all
the plants are in bloom.
The statement that there are gar
dens under bedclothes is supported
by no less an authority than that of
Very Rev. S. Reynolds Hole, dean of
Rochester. A district visitor in tne
Midlands, when calling upon a poor
woman, noticed how few were the
coverings of her bed. Upon being
asked, she admitted that she had an
other blanket, and was remonstrated
with for not using it, as the weather
was bitterly cold. It at length tran
spired that her husband had taken it
to cover over some plants he was
rearing in a tiny greenhouse, in the
hope of saving them from being
killed by the frost. Surely devotion
to flowers could hardly go much fur
ther than this.
Not a few suburban householders
usually find their gardens just out
side the scullery door, and they ex
ercise their horticultural ingenuity
upon the tiny slips of ground in
which the considerate jerry builder
has carefully buried his superflu
ous half-bricks. In various parts of
the country, notably at Nottingham,
there are cottage gardens three miles
away from the residences of their
owners, so that when visitors are in
vited to "come and have a look
around the garden," it means a some
what lengthy excursion. These small
allotments are, however, greatly ap
preciated and carefully attended, de
spite the fact that the time taken
in getting to and from them plays
sad havoc with their owners' scanty
Of gardens in cemeteries there ap
pears to be only a solitary example
in this country, the one which Sir
Joseph Paxton, of Crystal palace
fame, formed at Coventry. In the
United States, however, there are
many gardens of this kind, notably
at Boston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia,
and they might, with advantage, be
copied in our cemeteries.
Gardens may be made on open um
brellas as far as obtaining a sub
stantial crop of mustard and cress is
concerned. It is only necessary to
open the umbrella, wet it thoroughly,
and sprinkle the seed over it. If the
fabric is kept damp, the seed will
soon begin to sprout, and in a few
weeks a nice quantity of the salad
may be cut. The same thing may
be done in a dinner plate with the
aid of a strip of an old flannel shirt,
a piece of felt, or other similar cloth,
provided it is kept moist.
Fnrfa rol In Whisky-.
Sir Lander Brunton and Dr. Zunni-
cliffe, conclude that the furfurol con
stituent of whisky is that which causes
the violent headache of intoxication.
Experiments upon animals and man
demonstrated that furfurol has a tem
porary paralyzing action upon the vol
untary muscles, with convulsions, fol
lowed in man by throbbing headaches
for 24 hours. In aging, the amount of
the furfurol in whiskj- grows less, and
hence old whisky causes less head
ache than fresh spirit. With a per
fectly furfurol free whisky the secon
dary symptoms of drunkenness in man ;
and animals were absent. American

The various features for which the Lacka

voluntarily impressed upon the notice of
the passenger, who realizes the luxury of
hotel or club appointment in the electric
lights; the smooth-running journals of the

possible by the use of anthracite coal, avoid
ing all dust and nauseating smoke; the
consciousness of being always on time
which comforts force an ease of mind and
body most favorable to the enjoyment of
the unsurpassed scenery through which its
lines pass. It is but the natural sequence
that the Lackawanna is prosperous in like
