Dies at Willlamston.
Coroner Ilardin was advised yes
terday of tho sudden death at Wil
liamBton of a white man by the name
of Ilonea, formerly a resident of the
Gluck Mill village. Ilonea went tc
; Willlamston some days ago in searcli
of employment. He engaged room!
at a boarding house conducted by ?
Mr. Wortht-y. A few days ago he bc^
! came ill and Dr. Lander was summon
I ed to attend him.Wednesday afternooi
Dr. Lander visited tho patient, ant
when he returned to the house yester
I day morning he was told that lionet

liad died during the night. Coroner
I lard in requested Dr. Lander to make
u careful examination of the man's
body and report back to him. Later
in tiic day.the physician reported that
he hod examined the body and found
that tho man came to his deatli from
natural causes. A bottle of laudanum
was found In tho room, but there was
no evidence to show that the man had
taken any of the poison. Parties liv
ing in the house stated that some time
during the night they heard a noise
In Honcn's room, but did not go In to
Investigate. It is surmised that the
noise was caused by tho dying strug
gles of the man. When advised of the
circumstances of death, Coroner Har
din deemed an inquest unnecessary.

the boarding house where llonea died
came to Anderson and looked up the

the "refreshments" which were to he
served ufter the ball was over. The
theft of the refreshments was not. dis
covered until some timo after the
three negroes with the pot hud disap
peared in the distance and devoured
the peas. Immediately pandemonium
broke loose In the dance hall and a
small army of ncgroe3 rushed out
across the fields in search of the
thieves. Far up the road they heard
the three. negroes boating a tattoo
upon the put, us lug their spoons for
drumsticks. This was a signal to the
pursuing gung that the pot had been
eaten clean. About that time Jerome
Sloan whipped out a pistol ami fired
in the direction of the negroes who
! had swiped the pot of peas. Xo soon
I er had he fired this salute than Dep
i uty Sheriff Sanders reached out of the
I bushes and collnrcd him.
