Far out at the lonely crossroads
huddled the little school house. Now

a blot on the snow, and InBlde the
school house, placing the last avail

Rhea still hopefully waited. She had
not gone home after school with her
released pupils, for there was to have
been a meeting of the school board
that evening, here in the tiny assembly
Rhea's presence was desired, so she
hod brought her supper, folded in ene
of Mrs. Browning's neat napkins, and

her teacher's desk. Mrs. Browning
was the village mother, with whom
Rhea found board, and Mrs. Brown

comfort and protection.
It was to Jock's thoughtfulness that
she was Indebted fer the orderly pile
of logs out in the auto shed. Jim

Into a fierce blowing bllssard, se that

and made her way with difficulty,
even that short dletance-to the shed.
Then Rhea paused in dismay, for there
was not one log among the many piled
there, that she could possibly carry,
In her frailness. Jack had been so
sure that the men would be there to
assist her by the time the log woutd
be needed.
Breathless, a little frightened, Rhea
fought her way back through the
cutting wind?.
Sitting before the rapidly freeelng
window, Rhea looked back over the
years of her own saddened girlhood.
The mother, tender, unselfish and
adoring always; yet a mother In

Nashville, Tenn., March 1.-Chas.
Petree, Tom Christmas, Otto Ste
vens and John McClure died in the
electric chair at the State prison this
morning for the killing ot George
Lewis, of Knoxville, on May 30th,
1921. The men went to their deaths
with prayers on their lips, and all
except Pitreo met death calmly. An
hour before the execution Petree be
came ill. The men died in the order
given: Petree at 6.15 o'clock, Christ
mas at 6.25, Stevens at 6.35, and
McClure at 6.40.
The story of how the four men
were captured and convicted of mur
dering Lewis, near Clinton, Tenn.,
on May 30th, 1921, is fraught with
dramatic incidents. The gruesome
murder, the wild chase over the
mountains of East TonnosHoo for the
outlaws, the subsequent trial and
conviction, all served to engage the
interest of the people of that section
more, perhaps, than any murder case
for many years.
It was brought out in the trial
that, having planned the robbery of
the Oakdale, Tenn., bank, the men
hired a taxi driven by Andrew Crum
ley, of Knoxville, Tenn. George Lew
is accompanied Crumley on the trip
which the four men hired the latter
to make.
.When the party had reached a
secluded spot near iRobertsville, in
Tennessee, according to testimony
by Crumley, Lewis and the driver of
the taxi were bound and gagged and
beaten over the head with a pistol,
and left for dead. Both of the vic
tims' throats were cut.
The bank robbery failed to ma
terialize. Then followed a search,
which was joined in by hundreds of
mountaineers. Two of the men were
arrested in the mountains, and the
other two were later captured at
Hardman, Tenn. The outlaws had,
killed Lewis, but Crumley lived a ad
lt was his testimony that went far
toward convicting the men.
Mountaineers from many sections
crowded into the little town of Clin
ton to attend the trial.
(Excitement ran high, and for a
while;violence was threatened. Be
fore lt was evident that the defense's
case^had collapsed an attempt was
made to show that Petree had pos
sessed low mentality since his child
hood. This effort failed, and the de
fense entered a plea of guilty, with
a request for the morey of the court.
Tho four convicted men were sen
tenced on July 24, 1921, to die In
the electric chair on Sept. 16. An
appeal for a new trial was later over

"Yes, that swoet bye and bye,"

three verses of the hymn and handed
them to Webster.- When he read
them his whole domeanor underwent

Bennett began to write the notes,
and when finished he called for his
violin and played the melody. In a
few minutes more he had the four
parts of the chorus completed, which
was not over thirty minutes from the
first thought of the hymn, and lt
was but a short while until the two
