GOES RAVING CRAZY
IN GREENWOOD JAIL
Negro Hoy Entertained Greenwood
Custodians for Suite Awhile When
He IiOHt Control Over Iii? Gray Mat
Greenwood, Oct. 10.?Louis Lomax
a negro hoy, 16 years old. who was
brought to jail here from Hodges about
two weeks ago on tne charge of lar
ceny, went raving crazy yesterday af
ternoon about 6 o'clock. The boy had
been allowed to occupy a large cell
with several other prisoners and had
showed no signs of unusual action un
til suddenly yesterday afternoon he
seemed possessed of an evil spirit and
began to make things very uncom
fortable for his several cellmates. He
let loose two or three blood-curdling
yells as a sort of gentle reminder of
Which was to come and then proceed
ed to scratch, claw and kick every
body, and everything in sight. At
flrsi the negroes In the cell with him
thought that he was joking, as rough
as it seemed to them, but when he be
gan to knaw on two or three of them
and to shred the clothes from several
of the others, they too began some
yelling in a high falsetto key praying
for a hasty deliverance from the wrath
that had so abruptly come to them.
Officer Dave Major soon arrived
on the scene and telephoned for
County Physician Owens, who gave
the mad negro an anesthetic to get
him under control, but it was several
minutes before Mr. Major together
with several negroes couid handle
him. The boy, screaming, yelling,
snapping and clawing, seemed pos
sessed of supernatural strength and
gave the men such a terrible tussle
that they had great difficulty in
landing him In a cell to himself. Af
ter so long a time the anesthetic took
effect and he went to sleep for several
hours, but early this morning he
opened up at top speed again and to
day he has been an object of curiosity
for numbers of people who have vis
ited the Jail. When sufficiently arous
ed he attempts to grab anybody and
anything that comes within reach.
Dr. Owens stated this morning
that he thought the negro was suf
fering from acute mania. He has giv
en some signs of having hydropho
bia, but there is no evidence -hat he
was bitten by a maddog before I e
was lodged in jail. He will probably
be sent to Columbia tonight.?Green

WHO LAUGHED LAST!
The Honeymoon Couple and the Cus
.John Raphael, the brilliant Paris
correspondent to a number of our
English newspapers.' tells a story of
another honeymoon couple.
They had spent part of their holiday
in Brussels, and as lace is so much
cheaper there than in France, the
bride wanted, to buy some to take
home with her. But the husband said
"No!" Py the time they paid the
duty for importing it Into France, he
pointed out. they might as well buy
it In Paris.
"Rut I could easily get it through
the customs." the bride declared.
But the husband said "No!" again.
He was not going to get into trouble
for smuggling on his honeymoon.
Between Brussels and the frontier
the bride, apparently brooding over
the lace, explained exactly how she
would have gone about the business.
"I couhl have hidden any amount of
lace under my dress." she said.
The husband had a bright idea. He
would show his wife that his words
of wisdom were not to he' despised.
So. when they arrived at the frontier
station and the customs officers were
searching the luggage of the passen
gers he stepped out of the traH and
approached one of the officers. Point
ing to his wife, who happened to he
looking the other way. he said: "I
think that lady has some lace about
The officer thanked him and made
a sign to one of his subordinates. A
minute later madame, protesting an
grily, was taken off to be searched,
while monsieur smoked a cigarette
and chnckled at the thought that the
search (although, of course, he knew
that she had no lace) would cure her
of the wish to smuggle In future.
He ceased chuckling, however, when
the customs officer came up to him
and said: "We are very much obliged
to you. The lndy had 40 pounds' worth
of lace wrapped around her waist. But
she says you will pay the duty and
