WARSAW, VA., December 4.— (Special.)
The usually quiet town of Oak Grove,
Westmoreland- county, -was .thrown into
grer-.i excitement at a late, hour ; last
nigfat by the killing of one prominent
young man and the dangerous wound
::•;? of two others, ■wliose condition is so
precarious at this time that- their <3eath
is niomentarily. expected.
Last Thursday. night— Thanksgiving
jiicht— when most people were giving.
thanks, or oTherwise enjoS - ing themselves,:
the good people of Oak Grove wer*
drawn together in the Town HaTl to wit
:ies? an entertainment. It was at this
entertainment that Mr. Herbert Marks,' a
young wealthy lawyer, who -owns a large
iarra near Oak Grove, and who lives
•.here alone during the, winter months,
is ailcged to have made an improper pro
posal to a .prominent young: girl: about
14 years of age,
TO TAR AXD FEATHER- -HIM.- -" -
The romax-k. it' is alleged, was over
heard by some one and was repeated
in tlie town stores. It. ; was at this
juncture that WV P. Taylor, Jr., an influ
ential citizen of the communit;.' and a
cousin of tlie young girl, organized a
party of young men to call on Mr. Mai-ks
for the. purpose of tarring and feather
ing him, and on the following. Monday
night Mr. Taylor, accompanied by J. Q.
Stiff, George AT. ' Thomp son, Willie
Heflin, and- &.. H... Dousl asss.___a_lV ' pro_mi-_,
nent young men of the community, visit
ed Mr. Marks's lone cottage and found
Mr. Marks absent from, home; but they
were not to be deterred by failure ,to
find him. at home, and again on l ast
night, all armed and carrying with them
■a can of tar, they went again. This time
Mars "was at home, and the visiting party
found him at bis desk-writing. _
SMASHED A WINDOW.
The first intimation Marks had of ap
jtroaching danger- was the smashing in
of a window, of the room in which he
was sitting, followed immediately by the
muzzle of a gun in the hands' <jf a masked
man, accompanied with the injunction
to ""throw up your hands." He sprang
up from his desk and secured a revolver
irom -under. the head of his bed- and step
ped into an adjoining room, which .was j
dark. No sooner had he gotten into this ]
room than the window there was smash- j
ed, and before he : could escape by.
the back door a man. was seen-srawling
ia the window. Marks turned and fired,
and the bullet lodged in the neck of J.
Q. Stiff, who fell back.
Marks then escaped' by the back door
and Tushed around to the front of his
house- and fired at young Heflin, who
was standing there,, inflicting a mortal
tvoimd. •
HOW TAYLOR WA S KILLED. . .
Marks then ran up the fence about two
hundred yards, and as he saw some one
talking around his pear orchard he laid
down in the grass.- The man" in the <
orchard was young Taylor, and he car
ritd" a Winchester rifle. Taylor turned
his right side; Marx raised and firea the
b-Jlk-t, and ' it penetrated, his = heart, Tay-
Jor f;tlling with a groan. The other two
y>ung men became frightened and ran
away. " ~ ~ ' .'" ' . '- ' ' ■ ; ''-■/'
-Uf-r waiting for a few minutes; and
filng no one else around, and hearing
nothing more, Marks got up frorix the
ground and went to the residence- of. B.
H. Griffith, a half-mile distant, and in-;
formed him wfiat had occurred. '
In company with Mr. Griflith Marks re
turned to his house and', assisted in
withering in the dead and wounded, who
w'trc carried into his own Tiouse. ■
Marks fired only three shots, each bullet
taking effect; : ':: ' '.-. :■ V. '

SOME DEADLY SHOOTING. '
All were young, men; of the; neighbor-;

of the house, and, as- he did so Marks
sent him to the ground .; with 'a- mortal;
wound in the abdomen. James Stiff .at

fired. a bullst. in Jiis neck. : „" ' -
This" sudden pistol play; terrified George.
Thompson, "William Taylor, and Douglass;
who "took to their heeis" in- flight.
A few minutes later Marks left his,

were carried into Marks's house, Marks,
himself assisting the men he had a few
moments before felled. . .; .•
