TWO DIE OF POISON.
Dodge County l Stirred Up by Attroolom
43rimues.
Eastman, Ga., Special.-One of
the most atrocious .. crimes over
committed has just been brought
to light at DeBois, twelve inilo
above here. The story is tht~a
Richard Tucker was given a dose
of stryohnine by a-farn hand.
The alleged facts as reported are
these:
Tho farm hand was infatuated
with Mrs. Tucker, who it is alleged
returned his affection. To get rid
of Tucker be mixed strychnine
with some peach brandy.
Mr. Joel Horn, while visiting
Mr. Tuc.ker, complained of feeling
badly, and Mr. Tucker gave him it
drink of the brandy. Mr. Horn
died within an hour.
Having failed in accomplishing
the end aimed at, the forni hand
fixed some capsules with the
strychnine, which were given Mi .
Tucker on his complaint of foeling
badly. Mr. Tucker died soon
after.
Upon their arrest and incarcera
tion in the county jail Mrs. Tucker
and the farm hand accused each
other of the killing.
Public feeling is at fever heat,
and but for the timfiy arrival of
Sheriff Rogeis, the farm hand would
have been summarily dealt with,
and there is strong talk of lynch..
ing.
Drs. J. D. Herrman and J. B.
Clark cut out Tucker's stomach
and carried it to Atlanta for analy
sis by the state chemist, and rela.
tives wish an analysis made of Joel
Horn's stomach.
All the parties are of good fam
ilies.

Blind is the man who does not
recognize the great grouind sdell
throughout South Carolina in
favor of law and order. But a
small fraction of the Deople are in
sympathy with these lynchings
and murders. Now would be the
time for a strong personality not
only to perform a sacred duty but
to win popular applause by vigor
ous action.
Gov. Heyward makes this state
ment: "I regret to say that,
though I have waited several days
for oflicial notice regarding this
lawless act, ..not one report has
reached me through oflicers of the
law." He refers to the murder of
Head in Aiken county. As the
law requires these reports to be
promptly made, it is evident that
the law has been violated. This
would be an excellent opportunity
to lot the officers of the law under
stand that they will be required to
do their duty.

According to the report of the
auditor of the treasury, the collec
tor of the port at Albermarlo, N.

while the receipts of customs at
that port have been $1.80 a year for
the last five years. At Beau fort, N.
C., the average annual receipts are
$46.80 and the collector's salary Is
$1,000 with *404 in fees, and the
collector has two deputies. These
are only samples, as it is said other
ports make little better showings.

commends Judge Gage for requir
ing~ witnesses to put on their coats
before coming into court to testify.
"There is too prevalent an idea,'"
says The Era, "that the courts are
somewhat of a makeshift (possibly
not without some reason) and the
sooner this idea is gotten rid of the
better it will be for the cause of
justice." While we might com
mend the action of Judge Gage (on
the same grounds as The Ena, yet
there is another view. We would,
for the cause of justice, reverse his
ruling and require that every wit
ness and juror should appear in
his shirt-sleeves and that their hip
pockets and the contents thereof
should be exposed to view. We
would extend the ruling to the gen.
tlemen of the bar and are confident
that if required to remove their
coats in the presence of the judge
several lawyers would be found
with pistols in their pockets.

It is unlikely that the reward
offered by Gov. Heyward for the
arrest of the murderers of Dennis
Head will be claimed. Doubtless
a dozen neighbors of these mur

the lynchers at Norway are proba

the neighbors are not In hearty
sympathy with the lawlessness
they would probably fear to ap.

as in the courts, the State is at a

the solicitors had the power to
employ detectives and did utilize
their services on occasion, there
would be sonie results; the crimi

WREVK CLEARED AWAY.
The Southern Railway has com.
pleted the work of clearing up the
wreckage of 13 cars and an engine
which ran away on the heavy grade
up Saluda Mountain last week and
were almost annihilated. The
train of cars after gaining a fright
ful speod left the track and landed
in a valley some distance from the
main line. A side track was
built down to the wreck and a
large wrecking engine drew the do
railed freight engine back on the
track. One car of tho train which
did not leave the track was loaded
with eggs and, strange to say, few
of them were broken. The runa
way was attributed to the fact that
the air brakes 'had been tampered
with. When the crew saw their
danger they jumped and the train,
rushed on down grade for severail
miles before leaving the track. -

A TRILBY BRIDE.
Wont to Porch Ostensliy to Wash Feet

Charlotte, N. C.-A special from
Troutmian, Iredoll county, N. C.,
says:
News has just -zeached here of
the exciting and novel marriage
of Mr. Tfom E1rvin and Miss Ramna
Eagle. Miss Eaigle lives with Mr.
J. D. Croker and he, was bitterly
opposed to her marriage with young
Ervin and kept a strict surveilance
over all h.3r movements. The young
people couldn't got away and but
for the tiniely assistance of Orin
Harwell they would yet be trying.
Harwell laid the plans and tho
others carried them out, It was
this way, Miss Eagle having taken
off her shoes on the eve ot her mar
ringo walked out on the porch Os
tensibly for the purpose of washing
her feet when she suddenly darted
across the yard and through a
field of cotton where she was met
by her lover and young Harwoll.
There was a buggy in awaiting and
in less time than it takes to tell it
they were o~ff with the horse
stretched at a dead run,
Hlarwell, howover, strayed at his
post to arrest the progress of the
pursuing Croker. Mr. Oroker is a
fierce man and everybody else was
afraid of him. Just why he went
no further than the cotton ild
nobody knows but those two men.
Har well could tell but ho just grinis
and won't. However, the bare4
footed, baro~headed bride and the.
groom soon roached the homeo
Marriage Artist 0. 0. Harwell who
being called out of bed stepped on
the porch also bareheaded and
barefooted and as time was prO
clous they were married in short
order. Young Ervin then drove
with his Trilby bride to his own
home as well content as if he had
married in the church with the
sao$Ion of the whole-world.
