BY NEGRO BOY
INFURIATED BY REQUEST
FOR CANDY, BOY COM
BOTH VERY YOUNG
GirLjU Only Eleven Years of Age
While Her Youthful Slayer
Is Just Fourteen
A homicide of more than usual in
terest occurred in Anderson county
Sunday morning when a little negro
girl. Glady.3 Simmons, wai shot and
killed by her first cousin. The unus
ual interest in the case is due to the
fact that the dead girl was only 11
years of age and her murderer is only
The affair took place on the plan
tation of El lt. Norria, about six
miles from the city and occurred
Saturday afternoon about three
o'clock. The girl lived, however, un
til Sunday morning and no intimation
reached Anderson of the happening.
The boy who did thc shooting;. Ed
win Brown by name, has been lodged
in. the county jail, .(being -brought to
Anderson Sunday afternoon by tho
- The details of the affair seem to- in
dicate that it was hardly less than a
?teer ease of murder. According to
the ?tory- told -of -the incident- the
two little negroes were out together
when the girl asked the boy to buy
some candy for her. He- refused and
she repeated her request, catching
him by the coat, whereupon, he turned
upon her and fired, the ?hot taking
effect Just below her left knee. Ac
cording to the information received'
here, it seems that he then picked j
?ber up and carried h?r part ? the)
way to her home and then ??cam ?
frightened, dropping his gruesome
burden and hiding in a near-by barn.
The wounded girl twas later found:
and carried to her home where she]
died on the following day.- - j
Coroner Harbin held an inquest'
tSund&y afternoon' and the Jury re",
turned a verdict that the deceased,
cam? to' her death fretin a gun. shotL
wound inflicted by Erwin Brown. Tho]
boy was then brought to Anderson
and lodged in jail.
The case looks extremely bad for
Brown because of the fact that be is
said to have been implicated in a
shooting som? tims ago -^hen he shot
another boys finger off.
Court. House Quarters
Are To Be Enlarged
The, quarters of the office of the
clerk of court, in the court house, are
to be enlarged at an early date, ac
cording to a statement made yester
day by the clerk of /court. Mir. Pear
man said that of course it would be
necessary for him to secure an - ap
propriation from the legislature for
this puruose but that he did not an-j
tte!pate any trouble in this respect
Of the fact that there is more
room needed in this particular de
partment there can be no doubt
There is scarcely one half vault
room enough and Mir. Pearman's de
mand that he have more room is by
no means unreasonable.
