"T. U. Vaughn Is no more crazv

surgeon of the state penitentiary. yeB
terday when asked by a Greenville
News reporter why he had not Higned
the lunacy papers with the two -other
physicians who signed the paper stat
ing that Vaughan was crazy.
Vaughan is now in the State peni
tentiary where ho is being held pend
ing an appeal to the United States
Supreme court. He was convicted in
a Greenvlllo county court upon a
charge of having had criminal rela
tions with some of the yong girl in
mates in the Odd Fellow Home and
Kentouced to death. He escaped from
the county jail here, was later cap-11

tentiary, where he has been since.
For some time it has been reported
Lhat Vaughan, an educated man, was
crazy and that he would In all proba

"His physican and mental condi- t

nlngs summed the wholo thing up. t
Dr. Jennings stated that Vaughan
would never look anyone in the eyes, i
and that he had examined Vaughan's I
eyes and'they bore none of the recog- t
nized marks of lunacy. He stated r
that there are certain slgnB to the t
medical profession whloh indicate in- r

Vaughan exhibited not a single Bign
