BURINS NEGRO AT SRAKE
Negro Taken From Hospital Mm nt on
Cot to Which ue Wus Strapped?
Womeu in the Mob Almost Equal
Coatesvllle, Pcnn., Aug. 13.?Zac
harlah Walker, a negro, who was
charged with shooting and killing
Edgar Rice, a special policeman on
Saturday night, was dragged from a
cot In a local hospital by a mob' of
citizens tonight and burned at the
stake about half a mile from town.
The negro, who had shot and in
stantly killed Edgrfr Illce, a special
policeman of the Worth Iron Mills,
lnst night, was first dragged to the
scene of the shooting begging pite
j ously lor mercy, He bad been ar
' rested by a posse late this afternoon
after a search which had stirred the
countryside. When the posse finally
located him lie was found hiding in
a cherry tree and with the last bullet
in his revolver shot himself in the
mouth, falling from the tree II?; was
removed to the hospital and placed
under police guard.
A few minutes after nine o'clock
a crowd numbering almost onethous
and persons appeared at the hospital.
The leaders were unable to gain ad
mission, but quickly smashed window
frames and crawled through the cor
ridor. A policeman who had been
placed on duty to watch Walker was
the only person in the building besides
the nurses and patients. The leader
of the mob placed bis bands over the
policeman's eyes while others who
had entered the building set about to
take their man from the hospital.
When Walker was taken to the hospit
al be wnsstrapped down in order to
prevent bis escape. The mob seeing
this, gathered up the bed and placing
it on Hie shoulders of tour me::, start
ed for the country. They left the town
by way of the Towervllle road, and
when half a mile from the hospital
Stopped at a farm bouse. Here they
entered a field and quickly gathering
up a pile of dry grass and weeds' plac
ed the bed containing their victim up
on it. The negro was begging plto
OUSly to be released, but Iiis pleadings
fell upon deaf ears. A match was plac
ed to the pile of grass and the flames
shot up quickly, entirely enshrouding
(lie screaming victim. That not a ves
tige of tlie murderer be left the mob
tore down the fence along the road
and piled the rails upon the burning
After waiting for half an hour the
moii dispersed as quickly as It had
A curious feature of the burning was
the fact that there were almost as
many women In the crowd as men.
During the inarch from the hospital to
the scene of the burning of the negro,
a distance of less than three quarters
of a mile, not a policeman was en
countered by the determined mob. Ev
en the man on duty In the hospital
made no effort to stop the fifteen 01
more leaders who had gained admit
tance to the Institution.
The only mask worn by the mem
bers of the mob were handkerchiefs
drawn over their faces.
That the burning of the negro was
designed and carried out by level
beaded men there can be no doubt.
It was not the work of men whose
nerves had been wrought up to the
danger point by over-indulgence but
rather that of a body of determined
men who were ready to take any
kind of a chance to avenge the
death of a respectable citizen who
had been shot down in cold blood.
Coatesvllle is a town of about
10,000 persons, ond is located on the
main line of the Pennsylvania rail
road about :;o miles west of Phila
HOW TO (THE RHEUMATISM.
It is an Internal Disease and Requires
an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin
dred diseases is an excess of uric
acid in tho blood. To cure this terri
ble disease this acid must be expelled
and the system so regulated that no
more acid will be formed in exces
sive quantities. Rheumatism is an in
ternal disease and requires an inter
nal i-inedy. Rublng with Oils and
Liniment will not euro, nffdrds only
temporary relief at best, causes you to
delay tho proper treatment, allows tho
malady to get a Armor hold on you.
Liniments may ease the pain, but they
will no more cure Rheumatism that
paint will change the fibre of rotten
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete euro, which is
cnlled "Rheumacide." Tested in hun
dreds of cases, it has effected tho most
marvelous cures; wo believe it will
cure you. Rheumacide "gets at the
Joints from the inside," sweeps the
poisons out of the system, tones up the
stomach, regulates the liver and kid
neys and makes you well all over,
Rheumaclflo "strikes tho root of the
disease and removes its cause." This

On Aug., the 3rd, 1911 God called
to his home our friend, O. W. L.
Teague In the eightieth year of his
age. While his life was not an event
ful one, yet he left behind him a rec
ord worthy of mention. When the
tocsin of war between the States was
sounded ho was among the first to
volunteer and joined Jenkins brigade
and was in all the battles In which
that famous fighting brigade took part.
He was wounded in the head In one of I
the bnttles and, was pronounced dead
by his comrades. But his great nerve
and vitality soon permitted him to be
at the front again, and as a sharp
shooter he rendered as faithful ser
vice as any man that wore the gray
until the surrender at AppomatOX. He
was a conspicuous figure In the dark
days of reconstruction and a leader of
(ho red shirts, in their effort to rid
South Carolina of carpet bag rule, lie
was plaeed at one of the election boxes
at Laurens Court House with two oth
er demoerats to undertake to help
secure victory for white supremacy.
He was challenged by a member ofl
the garrison stationed at Laurens
which resulted in Teague slapping his
face and putting him to llight, follow
ed by about one hundred negroes.
Many of us know of his successful raid
on Tin Pot Alley which helped to abol
ish carpet bag rule In Laurens Coun
ty forever. In his passing away Lau
rens County loses one of her most
trusty and worthy citizens.
Mr. Teague married Miss Sue
?arksdale Porgey of Waterloo. Nine
children were born to them. The wife
and four sons, and four daughters sur
vive him, who together with a host of |
friends mourn Ids loss.
He was a high toned gentleman of
the old school, great advocate of tem
perance, and had never drank a drop
of any kind of spirits in his life. He
was a mein her or the Methodist church
and died in the faith.
His remain were laid to rest in the
cemetery at Waterloo surrounded by
a large circle of relatives and friends,
his pastor. Rev. P. A. Whltlock, con
ducting the funeral services. Thus
another stable land-mark has passed
away and has been gathered to his
