Newberry, June 28.?The news of
the horrible death of Mr. and Mrs.
John Jacobs and their children near
Peak this morning shocked and sad
dened the people here. Mr. Jacobs
has a brother living here, O. Walter
Jacobs ,and a sister, Mrs. Mary Moof,
and the family have many relatives
and friends In the county. Mrs Jacobs
was a daughter of the late Charley
Counts and a granddaughter of George
W. Chapman. The daughter. Miss Ki
lle spent several years In Newberry
staying with hrr aunt and attending
the city schools She was a very bright
and attractive girl and grew up to be
a fine woman, going from the school
here to Winthrop college where she
graduated two years ago. For the
past two years she has been a teacher
hi the Little Mountain school.
W. A. Drown a veterinarian, who
makes his borne at Newberry, saw the
fire that burned the Jacobs home, but
did not know what it WAjj till he
reached Newberry this morning. He
had ben to Augusta and was returning
home by way of Columbia, leaving that
city about 8 o'clock last night, trav
eling at night because it was so much
cooler than tho day. He was riding
In his buggy and had his saddle horse
and two or three othe rhorsos with
him. When near Peak this morning he
noticed, some distance away on his
right, two or three miles, he Judged,
a light like the light of a largo lantern.
It was then just 3:45 o'clock. He
thought to himself that somebody
is getting up very early, As he rodo
slowly along ho watched the light,
which seemed to grow larger. In a
litle while the doctor came to the head
of tho road that leads down to the
Jacobs place. He stopped his buggy,
and It was In his mind to mount his
salddlo horoe and hurry down there
to see what was the matter but did not
In a little wihlo what had appeared to
bo a lantern became a large blaze,
spreading very rapidly, an dthe doctor
thought to himself that somebody bad
lost his barn, lie says he would have
had time, if he had gone when it first
occurre dto him, to raech the place
before the lire burst into a big blaze.
Some miles this side of Peak Dr.
Brown met G. W. Jacobs and othols
in an automobile traveling at a rapid
rate, but did not learn of the tragedy
till he reached Newberry. Mr. Jacobs
had been called up by telephone by
Joseph Eargle, one of his brothers
neighbors, an! left at once for the
scene. Sheriff Please left here at 9
o'elockKgoIng in his automobile and
carrying R. . Perry and Richard
Burton, reaching the scene In an hour
and a half. He returned to Newberry
at 12:30 this afternoon. He said that
ho found a large crowd of persons
present, including Sheriff Miller of
Lexington, who was doing all that was
possible to get the facts in the case.
Sheriff Please said bloodhounds were
trlod, but did not follow any trail. Ho
further said that the first theory that
tho house was set on Are by lightening
was without foundation.
Dr. Brown, who saw the fire, as
above stated, says there was no light
ning at all at the time, nor anywhere
near the time.
The charred bone of the bodies were
found on the springs of what had been
their beds. There were no tracks, no
clue, nothing to throw any light on
tho terrible tragody.
