I _
Anderson, Juno 7.-The captur?
of Undi Lawton, a white man. against
whom the United States olllcers had
warrants, and who was wanted as an
escaped convict, was effected Sunday
morning in McCormick county by o
parly of United States olllcers who
loft Anderson Saturday. The party
was composed of A. B. Kennedy,
Charlie Bruce, Charlie Lyon, J. C.
Buskin and Deputy Sheriff W. S. Kay.
Lawton, according to tho ollicers,
is a "bad actor.' a man who dared to
do anything and has been at large
for tho last, live months. Ho ls said
to have escaped from a crain gang
in South Carolina, and was seen near
T distillery which was cut by ofTicers
l t. t week. A warrant for his arrest
was Issued for last week's raid, and,
armed with this warrant, the officers
set about to capture the man.
The arrest was made under very
peculiar conditions. A well-known
negro was used to lure the man Into
a hay house in what is known as the
DeBoso bottoms on Savannah river.
The negro made arrangements with
Lawton to meet him there on Sun
de/, and when he entered, olllcers at
once surrounded tho house. Tho man
saw t trap too late and ran out of
the house, leveling his rille on Officer
Kennedy. The negro knocked the gun
up in tho. air before he could shoot.
A struggle ensued and tho man was
fina Hy handcuffed by thc officers..
Shortly after Lawton was arrested
Charlie Lyon and other ofllcers found
a 00-gallon still and destroyed it.

"Count Humon was a friend of

scope hud, apparently* always told him
that his death would be a sudden one,
but that he need not anticipate danger
in tho Held of battle. Just before Lord
K. went abroad,. Count H. went to the

blue vase, which he bad once given
him ns a mascot, and told him thut he
always kept lt on the table. He asked
Count H. if there was anything he
could do for him before he left the
country. The count replied in the nega

thing he would do-If anything hap
pened to him he would give him a sign.
At the very hour the Hampshire went

Grades for British Apples.
Thc British, npple growers bavo
recently been devoting considerable
attention to the establishment of
grades for their product und ?much
progress hun been made In this de
velopment. The chief reason for tho
movement is the desire to place on tho
large British markets on apple grown
in England which will compare
favorably In price with the bent Amer
ican and Australasian product. It
has often been stated in England that
tho market advantage of the American
apple is entirely due to the fact that
lt Is correctly graded and packed. y
There ls no large supply of British
apples which could ho closely graded
for market. The British growers
generally have not paid much atten

selection of their trees nor to the
