Iliarh tmseily in Real I.I To.
Tlioy nre in the habit of lin'nring
Avonion dowii in (icorria, Suwnn Kbcr
liart was liaurcd in that state a year
or two ago. Ciov. Smith M'as plied
with a great proasurc to rrnnt her
jmrtlon, and lie refused to tío it. So
.Susan was launched into eternity in
the presence of a crowd of ten or
twelve thousand people as many as
could crowd in sight of the ghastly
spectacle. Another Georgia woman
is now under sentence of dea'th, and
Gov. Colquitt will have the ease to
wrestle with for some months.
The case is exceed i nglv dramatic
from first to last. There is a family
of Southerns in Pickens, one of the
mountain counties of Northern Geor
gia. There were several boys all
brave, sturdy mountaineers, hut l?oh
Southern was the flower of the flock.
He Mas the king of athletic sports
among his fellows, and the favorite of
the mountain belles round about.
Every girl appeared to want him all
to herself, and all did their hest. to get
him. Among these mountain families
was one named J Ianibriglit prospe
rous farmers. Kate llambriglit was
the acknowledged helte of the district.
She was a beautiful, tall brunette, and
had a straiu of genuine Indian blood
in her veins. There is no doubt that
Kate llambriglit loved Dob Southern
and wanted him as badly as the oilier
girls did. and there is no doubt that
lie loved her better than any of the
rest. The fact is, he had his pick and
choice of all the mountain maidens
and all the boys were in love with
Kate, giving her the same margin of
selection. There was hut one boy
ainon them all that she had any
doubt about her ability to capture
and keej) all to herself, and that was
Hob Southern. Ills popularity had
mude him a "flirt." There was but
one woman that Kate llambriglit
feared, and her name was Mrs. ar
cissa Cowart a plump blonde and
pretty. She had got a divorce from
her husband, as she afterwards said,
for the sole purpose of marrying Dob
Southern. Dob was not. insensible to
her beauty and blandishments. He
treated her with marked favor when
ever he met her, which was often in
the rambles among the mountains.
Hut Kate llambriglit finally won.
She was married to Dob Southern in
the latter part of the year 1876. Dul
even after Hob's marriage to Kate
Xarcissa wjuld not give him up.
Neither was he cured of his flirting
propensities, and she encouraged hii
attentioiis moni than ever. Dob and
Xarcissa took solitary walks and lone
ly rambles in Ihe woods. Kate br
eam! miserable with her prize, She
expostulated, coaxed, reasoned and
tried to win him wholly in vain. He
laughed at her tears of '(hat woman,''
as he called Xarcisa, and told her how
she was a little ''goose." Hut Kate
wac dcspcrate.lv, wildly in love, and
she became madly jealous. Her love
was the love of a tigress nurtured in
those Southern hills. Her jealousy
was such a love's natural outgrowih.
During the Christinas holidays of lS7ii
her father gave a party at his house
in honor of the young couple.
The rules of 'mountain hospitality
required that he should invite alibis
neighbors, nnd Mrs. Xarcissa Cowart
among the rest. Of course she came
and Kate's pleasure was gone. She
tried to make her husband prom'uc
not to dance v.lth "that woman." He
tensed her and, would not promise.
Kate then humbled herself by going
to Narcissa in the dressing room be
fore the hall commenced, and begging
her not to come bet ,veen husband and
wife, not to encourage hini.and not to
dance with him if lie tu-ked her. Xar
cissa replied, "What if I d: part man
and wife was I not divorced for his
sake? I shall dance with Mr. Southern
to-night in spite of his wife. Little
consolation there. Xarcissa swept
into the ball-room, nnd Kate sat and
though. When the dance was about
to commence Kate went into the ball
room and saw her husband and Mrs.
Cowart preparing to dance as partners
nt the head of a set. Kate hurried up
and reminded Hob that he had engag
ed to dance with her for that set. Mrs.
Cowart replied that she intended dan
cing that set with Mr. Southern. The
dance commenced, and the wife walk
ed awny. She went outside nnd
watched' tlietn through the window
until the dance was nearly done. Kate
then went to her father in a room
adjoining the hall-room, borrowed his
pocket-knife, saying that she wished
to pare her nails. She hastened into
tljc bull-room, and reached the couple
just as the set was over. She caught
"Sirs. Cowart by the arm nnd saying.
"You have danced enough," plunged
the knife into her shoulder, severing
an artery. She then slashed "that wo
man" across the left hrenst the blade
cutting through the upper portion of
the heart. Mrs. Cowart tell dead on
the floor, nnd spoke no word. Kate
Jumped on her body nnd ripped open
her abdomen, nnd would have cut her
all to pieces if some one less terror
stricken thnn the rest had not cried
out: "Who killed this woman?" Kate
Southern rose tip nnd said: "I killed
that woman, nnd I ought to have done
Is long njjo." Then one of the floor
managers forbade aiiy one to leave the
room until the matter could be inves
tigated. At this Bob Southern, who
had been standing by became a man.
Stepping up to Kate, putting one arm
around her, drawing a pistol with
the other and pointing to the doorway
blocked with people he said: "We
nre going out nt that door if I have to
shoot, our way through." And out
the door tho couple went unhindered,
leaving the company to take care of
the wreck of the ball-room. Thus Hob
Southern and his wife nnd his broth
er,, who joined them at the door, dar
ted from tho house, .and shot out into
the night. They left the state in dis
guise and made their way safely to
Marion county, North Carolina, wiiere
they engaged in farming and lived
happily for a year. Here a child was
born to them, which is now about six
months old. At length they resolved
to move West, and started with their
effects in a wagon. One account says
they were going back to Georgia to
give themselves up for trial; another
says that their intention was to elude
pursuers who had tracked them to
tlMjir South Carolina retreat. 15e this
as it may, they were on the road when
they were surrounded and captured
by a band of horsemen armed with
rifles one dark stormy night and escor
ted back to Pickens county, Georgia.
Father and mother and child were
locked in one cell. The charge was
murder, and the trial is just concluded,
líate was taken out for trial alone
carrying her child. The case caused
intense excitement, nnd the court
room was full of the relatives and
friends of both families. The uncons
cious little one played with its moth
er's ribbons and rings and smiled on
the ghastly proceedings. There was
deep sympathy for that young mol her
in all present, except the jury. The
father of Narcissa Cowart was in
Ihe court-room most of the time, and
towards the close of the trial seemed
to sympathize with Kate as much as
anyone. No one thought there could
bo' a conviction Kate least of all.
She was cheerful until the jury
brought in a verdict of 'guilt y."
Then her face fell and she Avcpt and
moaned over her babe. She went back
to her cell and her husband with
the sentence of death ti pon her. What
a pitiful scene must have been there
behind the bolts and bars.
Kate Southern is sentenced to be
hanged on the '1st of .June. A mo
tion for a new trial will be made on
the loih of this month. If the judge
does not grant it. and it is doubtful
if he will the case will then go to the
supreme court on a bill of except ions.
This will be about the hitter part of
September or the lirsf of October. If
ihe supreme court nfllrins the verdict,
the prisoner will be resentenced to be
executed between thirty and sixty
Uavs from the date of the resentence.
It is now discovered that Mrs. South
ern is enceinte, and her time will come
about the latter part of October or
first of November. The case derives
a more horrible interest from this fact.
Hut the laws of the staie expressly
declare that no woman shall be hanged
while in this condition. I'nder all
the circumstances it. is hoped and be
lieved that executive clemency will
interpose its hand to save this woman
and two lives. There is a sensational
interest all over Georgia in the out
come of this peculiar case St. Louis

strict party vote, '27 Republicans

withheld his vote. The Senate also
