BODY LITERALLY HACKED TO
Young Boy Arrested Charged With
ClUwi Ao'ounl Most Horrible in
Detail?Culprit Spirited Away.
Tampa, Fla.. Fab. 13.?Following
the Unding of the horribly mutilated
body of 14 year-old Mary Teddei at
the home of her father at Glenwood

a 16-year-old white boy, was arrest?
ed this morning. He was immediate?
ly spirited away by the sheriff to es?
cape the enraged posaes of cltltens
also in search of the murderer.
Additional details received hero
from the murder are horrible. A bi?
cycle, which the girl was riding, was
found 100 yards from where her
body was discovered, Indicating that
her assailant had struggled with her
for this distance after knocking her
from her wheel.
The body of the girl showed 65
knife wounds. She was literally cut
That the girl's assailant had other
motives than murder is believed
from the condition of her clothing.
She had been beaten about the face
before being stabbed.
Following the organisation of pos?
ses of cltlsens In search of a negro
supposed to have committed the
crime, the sheriff secured bloodhounds
and followed a trial in the orange
grove of William Woolsey, where
young Hanchett was employed. After
a careful Investigation the boy was
placed under arrest In his room

tion at some point In Connecticut. The

A Curious Experience In tlie Wilds of
Of the curious Ideas of hospitality
held by some of the natives of that
wild country lying between Bagdad
and Damascus two travelers, Captain
Butler and Captain Aylmer, tell in
the Geographical Magazine: We found
Feysul Ibn Rashld ( a minor ruler of
Arabia) sitting In a low room, the
roof of which was supported by wood?
en pillars. All around the sides of
that room were spread carpets, on
which aat his viziers and members
of his court. He Is a man of 33
years with a dark, pointed beard,
good, regular features, but eyes that
are cold and cruel, and he has a
nervous, fidgety manner and was all
the time arranging his abba (cloak)
and combing and curling his mus?
tache and beard and e.dmirlng him?
self In a 3mall. cheap looking glass
that hung just behind him. Above
hit head on the wall hung his silver
mounted walking stick and a sword,
the sheath of which was also covered
In silver. He was very richly dressed.
"On our arrival at the house placed
at our disposal, we congratulated
ourselves on our good fortune In
having such a cordial welcome, but
we were speedily disillusioned. We
had not been there more than five
m inutes when Feysul's head slave, a
richly dressed personage called
Dahm, came to tell us that the emir
would not take our camels or our
money as he had plenty of both, but
that he would like things of Euro?
pean make or of Interest that we
happened to have. This was only
too true and during our five day's
stay there was a continual process
ton of slaves and hangers-on from
the castle demanding things for the
emir and his viziers and favorites
and demanding them in such a way
that it waa impossible for us to re?
fuse At last we had practically
nothing of any value left, having
been fleeced of watches, revolver,
compasses, various clothes and other
articles of our kit.
"Apart from this system of more
or less polite robbery we were well
treated by the emir and had our food
sent us from the castle by him. About
three or four times a day we had a
royal command from him and used
to go up to the castle and drink
many cups of coffee and excellent
sweet tea with him, and talk about
his country and Europe. He was al?
ways very genial on these occasions,
and I honestly think he considered
he waa treating us well in not taking
all we had and turning us adrift to
die In the desert.

CHEROKEE FARMER TELLS HOW
Methods by Which 750 Pounds of
Lint Cotton Were Obtained From
Gnffney, Feb. 12.?During the past
season. Cherokee county has demon?
strated the fact that in the cotton
raising industry she is entitled to take
rank In he very front. In the contest
inaugurated by the National Bank of
Gaffnev, some enormous yields were
obtained, among them being that of
Mr. J. W. Smith with 921 pounds on
one here; Mr. E. R. Cash. ovith 750,
Mr. T. H. Lockhart, with a yield of
more than 600 pounds on one acre.
All these gentlemen say that the
yields which they got last season will
look small, later on as they intend to
increase them this season very ma?
terially. This county has within the j
past few years made wonderful prog
ress in farming and stock raising, an 1 j
the other counties in the State must |
look to their laurels, else Cherokee
will pluck them, and take the lead in
these respects, as she has in many
Mr. E. R. Cash has kindly given
The News and Courier correspondent
hi* method of cultivation, which was
as follows: "Kind of land used, very
poor, gray soil with yellow clay, which
had been planted in cotton for several
years, yielding from four to five hun?
dred pounds seed cotton per acre. I
used as fertilizers on the aere one ton
of high grade fertilizer, and nine
loads of barn yard manure. About
the last of January I turned the land
with a Lynchburg 2-horse plough, ten
Inches deep, first week in March I
ploughed the land again with a one
horse turn plough, distributing guano
In every furrow, and followed the dis?
tributor with a one-horse subsoil
plough. At this time I used one thou?
sand pounds of guano. On April 4th
I laid off the rows 5 1-2 feet apart and
bedded with a large shovel plough on
April 13. Planted seed with a Cole
Hill planter 16 inches apart in the
drill, and on April 26 ran weeder over
cotton across the rows. On May 4
ran round cotton with side harrow;
on May 7 chopped out cotton to one
and two stalks in hill. On May 10
ran round cotton again with side har?
row, using larger ploughs, and on May
14 and 15 thinned cotton to one stalk
in the hill. On May 18 ran round cot?
ton with 13-inch bow and small
tongue plough, and on May 21st
ploughed out middle with cultivator,
and hoed the plants. On May 28th
ran round cotton with cultivator,
which ploughed out the middle entire.
On May 31st hoed cotton again, and
on June 4 distributed 300 pounds
guano alongside of cotton about five
Inches from the plants In every alter?
nate row, following with 16-Inch how
small shovel plough. On June 12,
treated the other rows In the same
manner, and again distributing 300
pounds of guano. On June 18 and 19
distributed four loads of manure rak?
ed from the cow lot, and on June 21
ploughed cotton with 21-inch bow
and small plough, and on June 28 dis?
tributed 200 pounds guano In middles
and ploughed cotton with small
plough and 2-Inch bow. On July 8
or 9, applied 200 pounds nitrate of
soda, distributing same on each side
of cotton about 6 or 8 Inches from
the plants, and ploughed in with a
small plough and 24-inch bow, this
finished the cultivation. Before break?
ing the land the first time In Janu?
ary I distributed broadcast 5 loads of
manure raked up from the lot. I
used Cook's improved big boll cotton
seed. I commenced picking cotton on
September 24, and at the first pick?
ing gathered 295 pounds. October 14
gathered 696 pounds, on October 27
gathered 634 pounds, and on No?
vember 30 gathered 619 pounds, mak?
ing a total of 2,235 pounds of seed
cotton, from which was ginned 750
pounds of lint cotton."
Mr. Cash says that he will make a
much larger yield this season, provid?
ed the season Is favorable, as he has
learned a number of things which he
did not know before, and his method
of cultivation will be much more in?
telligent than it was last season.

TT IE OUTCASTS OF INDIA.
Fifty Million To Whom The Hindus
Refuse To Grant Any Rights.
(From the Nineteenth Century.) 1
The outcasts of Hindu society
form all over India a distinct sec?
tion of the population, numbering
about 60,000,000. They are the des?
cendants of various races who inhabi?
ted India before the Aryan invasion,
and who vere, through various
causes, reduced to a state of slavery
or serfdom. Some of them were the
slaves of the ruling races before the
Aryans entered India. Certainly in
South India slavery was a regular
Institution long before the appearance
of the Aryans. But some of the ser?
vile classes of the present day have
in historic times fallen from a high
estate and were originally ruling
classes in the countries where now
they are slaves. Sir. W. W. Hunter
says that the Bhars were formerly
the monarchs of the center and east
of the province of Oudh, in North
India; that they were the traditional
fort-builders to whom all ruins are
popularly assigned, and that they were
reduced to slavery by a Mohamme?
dan ruler of Jaunpur. So again, he
says; "The Gaulis are ancient ruling
races of the central provinces, the
Ahams of Assam, a?nd the Gonds,
Chandelas and Bundelas, of Bundel
kund, are other Instances of crushed
races. In centres of the Aryan civil?
ization low casts and out casts on
which the aboriginal people have
been pounded down In the mortar of
Hinduism into the labor system of
The same is true of the Parelyars
of South India. There is a great
deal of evidence to show that ordi?
narily they were the ruling race in
the Tamil country. They had their
own priests, the Valluvas, who were
priests to the Pallava Kings in what
are now the Tanjore and Trichinopoly
districts, before the advent of the
Brahmans. The greatest poets
among the Tamil people, the weaver
poet Tiruvalluvar and the poetess
Avvaiyar, who wrote about the ninth
century A. D., before the Brahmans
had secured a dominant Influence in
the extreme south of India, both be?
long to the Parelyar race, and even
to this day there is a family saying
all over the Tamil country which lit?
erally means "Parelyar the elder
brother of the Brahmans."
Marshman, In his "History of
India," (vol. 1. page 21), says: "A
Tamil literature existed before the
introduction if Brahmanism, and
some of the best authors in that
language were of the tribe now stig?
matized as Parelyars, which lncon
testably proves that the Parelyars
were a highly cultivated people who
were reduced to subjection and de?
graded by the triumphant Brah?
These out caste races are called by
different names in different parts of
India and ha ve various occupations.
Large numbers are agricultural
laborers, many are leather workers,
some are weavers, others again are
seevengers and sweepers. But what
ever their occupation, they are in?
variably treated by the Brahmans
and the upper castes as degraded
and polluted. As a rule, the Hindus
feel no sympathy for them and are
unwilling to concede them any rights
