"I ain going to die but I did lmy
duty," and thus died another victlin
of lynch law in South Carolina. These
words were s)oken by Sheriff Hood
who was shot and mortally wounded
at Winnsboro Monday morning by a
nob that considered itself above the
law. He was not alone in death. The
prisoner ho was protecting, yet un
tried and his guilt viot proven, went
also. The leader of the mob was so
riously wounded and may die. And
why it all? lIecauise four cr live liell,
w ith the moral supplort of a large pro
ptortion of the citizenship of South
Carolina, choose to do what the Gei
