a Woman.
The worst combination in the

may bo ascribed us tbo cause of tbe
kilting of Richard Ivoebuck, a negro,
t>y Will Belcher, another negro. Roe
buck was shot SaAtfrday night about
II o'clock and died Sunday night
about the same hour.
Coroner Ilardin held an inquest ov
er the body yesterday, the Jury re
turning it verdict to the effect that
Richard Roebuck came to his death
From gunshot wounds inflicted by Will
Belcher. The uegro was then brought
to Anderson and lodged in the count}
fall. The evidence soetns to be ugainst
him.
The shooting took place on what is
known as the Tucker place, two
miles from Iva. . The negroes were
holding a hot supper of some kind.
One feature of the affair rj! more
than usual .interest is the fact that
In the house where this happened o
