Terrible Infanticide In Anderson County
Caused By Religious Fanaticism
of Negro Mother.
Anderson, September 8.---A hor
rible case of infanticide caused by
religious fanaticism occured last
night in Broadway Township, about
six miles from the city. John Graf.
fenreid, a negro, and his wife, had
been attending a "holiness meeting,"
and had become greatly wrought up
over the excitement attending it.
They left the meeting Monday night
and spent a greater part of the night
Just before daylight, Graffenreid
says, his wife awoke him and -asked
him which he loved best, his wife or
his baby, a child about 16 months of
age. She said the Lord was going
to take one of them and asked which
he would rather give up. He says
he said that if it was the Lord's will
he would rather give up the child.
He says the woman then got out of
bed and took the child in her arms
and declared she was going to offer
it as a sacrifice. He says he was
standing by her trying to got her
quiet, when she suddenly exclaimed:
"Here, Lord, take this child," and
threw it against the wall. His wife
then threw her arms around him and
tried to choke him, saying something
about both of them going to Heaven
together. They had a scufile, which
awakened the other children who
ran into the room and took the child
and placed it in a bed.
The woman then jumped out of a
window arid left the place and went
to the farm of V. Q. Hammond,
where she appeared early in the
morning, acting in a strange manner,
as if demonted, an- Mr. Hammond
secured her for fear she would do
herself or others harm. She said
something about her husband killing
her baby, and this aroused Mr. Ham
mond's suspicious, and he phoned
Sheriff Green for instructions. The
sheriff gave instructions to have her
husband arrested and this was done
by Mr. Allen Martin, w. was at Mr.
Hammond's, and the man and hif
wife were brought here and put iu

affair, though his story is rambling
and disconnected. He does not shov

*THE PASSING OF THE FORBSTS.
- In Twenty Years Tihe Scarcity Will B,

try Will Be Pliched.
The Hon. James Wilson, Secre
1tary of Agriculture, in the Chicago
Record Herald, says:
It will not be many years uni

at the most, unless immediate and
extensive actio-. 3 taken, the entire
country will be pinched. Our tim
ber supply will be exhausted, and
we shall suffer a wood famine far
worse than the coal famine which
England is now fronting.
What we must do is to study the
soil. A few years ago all our fine cigars
were coming from Cuba and other
West Indian points. I sent men to
these various places and had them
collect samples of the soil on which
the finer grades of tobacco were
This was brought to Washington
and analyzed. Having found the
properties of the soil,- I sent out over
the United States to find the same
kind, and as a result we are now
growing the finest cigar tobacco in
the world ight here in our own
My men found the exact soil wanted
in Texas, Ohio and Connecticut and
in these States we raise better tobacco
than is grown in any of the Southern
So it is with forestry. The ground
that has produced the big trees and
the hard wood trees must be anal
yzed and seed must be planted im
mediately. If the necessary elements
are lacking in the soil, it must be
manipulated until it will grow tim.
Every agricultural college in the
country should have a forestry do
partment. Yale is the only institu
tion that has a regular course, Cor
nell having abolished hers. I recently
attended the graduation exercises of
a Western agricultural school that
recoived an annual endowment from
Congress of $70,000 a year, and out
of the 450 graduates not one knew
anything about forestry. This is
A few figures will give a fair idea
of about how long the timber of the
country may be expected to last at
the present rate of consumption.
There are now 700,000,000 acres
of productive forest land in the Uni
ted States. The annual cutting of
lumber amounts to 35,000,000,000
feet a year; of timber, 3,000,000,000
feet; for railroad ties, 22,000,000, and
for fence posts, 3,000,000.
The lumber industry amounts to
$676,000,000 a year, and of this the
farmers receive $100,000,000 for tim
ber cut from their personal property.
If this industry is to be exhausted
the result can only be surmised.
Science is learning how to treat
soft woods, which grows rapidly, so
that they can be made to last as
long as hard wood, This will assist
in reducing the ann"'a consumption
of ties and fence posts, wvhich are no
small factor. We can only hope for
greater development in scientific re
The fuel question must also be
considered. Every farmer should
grow his own fuel. Those which
are suitable for the purpose are soft
and grow quickly, and1 every farmer
should therefore have his fuel patch
as wvell as his produce garden.
Every child should be taught the
1 ee'.ing time of trees and know when
to go to them t.o find the seed, and1

Record that the list of jurors for the

will not be published.
Citizens expected to see the list in

to find it in the paper some of them

the names were not printed. Accord
ing to the gentlemen referred to, this

to provent the p)ossibility of any

say, so far as the Rocord's inforinant
knows, who ho suspected might be
guilty of such an attempt. There is
no law, so far as Lexington is con
cernti, it said, to require the list of
jurors to be published in newspapers,
but their naiues cannot be kept by
olicials from ayone who may desire
to know who they may be. Still the
