(Vk'hor ol tho Child Beaten Into Insensi bility-Lynching Barely Averted. Last Monday night, about 7 o'clock, two young negroes, Buster Uoolsby, aged eighteen, and his brother, Ximian Uoolsby, aged fifteen years, called at Hie residence of Dan Minis, near 1 la/.clhurst, (?a., and hired to him to chop colton, he having agreed to give them employment. They both had ax handles with them and as Minis wont out in the yard to at tend to something ono of them Blipped up behind him and knocked him in HM hoad. After he had fallen, one of them stabbed him in tho eye and also cul his throat. Mrs. Mims, who was in tho house, oil , hearing the disturbance rushed out to , her husband, and she too was knocked down. Tho negroes, thinking they had | killed her, turned their attention to Mr. | Minis, thereby giving Mrs. Minis time to , escape. , Mrs. Minis had her baby in her arms at the time she was knocked down and , the shock caused by her fall injured the | baby so it has since died, while Mrs. , Minis was seriously hurt. i Minis was a young man, the son of ? .lohn T. Minis, ono of thc most, substan tial and highly respected farmers in Ap pling county. Minis had only berni mar ried a little over one year. One ?if thc (ioolsby negroes was cap tured but was "lost" (supposed to have been lynched), before lie "got away" he. said a negro preacher put them up to it. Pour more negroes were arrested as being accessories to the Minis murder, lt was thought the negroes would be lynched, bul cooler heads prevailed, and upon investigation, it was proven that two of the negroes arrested knew noth ing about the crime, and they were turned loose, thc oilier two, arrested as accessories to th?1 crime, and the mother md a brother of the two (ioolsby negroes, were lodged in jail at Haxley.

We quote thc arl ide: "Senator McLaurin ?emus to have a drong pull willi Dollar Mark Danna, uni as a natural consequence he is in ugh favor with President McKinley, ,vho is owned liody and soul by the great boodler.'"

"The great trouble at present is th the Senator from South Carolina won let us on Ibis side of the chamber 1 him alone,-' spoke Senator Spooner. I was referring to the waving of (heblooi -;hirt by Senator Tillman. The Wiscu ?ill Senator had thanked Cod the blooi ?birt had been buried and he hoped would never be resurrected. The Sou Carolina Senator had thanked Cod f tho same thing, bul said ho insisted np [Jigging ll]) the bloody shirl just lo ?nough to Haunt it a little while. ".? ive ol' the South ask is to be let aloin shrieked Sena'or Tillman in a hurst frenzy. "We are not bothering yoi said Senator Spooner, in mollifyi Iones, "lint il seems the Senator fri South Carolina will not let us on tl tide of the chamber let him alone." I ?umped Senator Tillman again a .creamed : "I have thrown down t ;ago of hallie. Why don't some of y ake it up?"' livery Republican sat nu is a clam. The Culloin Hawaiian t iva? under discussion. The old, aim 'orgolteii sectional issues were not .ol ved. lint Senator Tillman bad dr .ttl them forth anyway, and made senate chamber sepulchral willi '.lank and clatter of dry bones as shook the skeletons. Wherefore il icing iinpiired, Whal is Senator Til hi ip to V His Democratic colloag teemed lo enjoy his Haunting of nobly, bloody shirt before the start .azo of the Kc publicans, who sh ri rom it with a shudder, ls it possi hal tho whirligig of time has brou li Mich a strange change that Hie Dei rats now conceive it to he good poli o wave the bloody shirt, believing t he Republicans will Mee from il'.'
