The relatives of the mur dered husband swore vengeance, which came In a terrible and brutal form. A baud of men rode up to tho West homestead and demanded admittance. The House Riddled With llellets. "Tom West Is dend. Now It's your turn," the spokesman called, and Deveors and tho woman awoke, to find their house surrounded. Mrs. West rushed to a dark ened window and began a wild, hysterical plea for mercy. A dozen bullets answered lier cries, and the demand fur linmedlato surrender was repeated. Devours, too, asked for a hearing, but his request was greeted with a shower of shots. "We'll give you ton minutes to open up. Then you burn, " sold tho mob's load er, and his mon quietly retired from tho door. A hurried consultation was held In side the house, and then, white and terror stricken, tho little girl of Devoers was thrust out to plead with the mail. Clad In her night-robe, barefooted and unprotect ed, she bravely walked out Into tho moon light and sobbed out a prayer fur bur white haired father's life. "Get out. You'roliabletogetshot your self," a ruffian said, and tho paulo strick en child lied to the cabin of a negro neigh bor. Mrs. West then nppenrod at tho door and made a last appeal for mercy. It was unavailing, and in another moment the bouse was tired. Tho shrieks of tho im prisoned ' wretches failed to move their torturers, who, aa the llaniea reached the living room, could see tho man and wom an In tho agony of death by the lira Just before tho roof fell the woman was seen to reel auro»s the room and plunge headlong into tho fireplace among the burning coals, and there she died, with pain, Deveors at tho last moment made a dash for liberty, but a score of bullets stripped him half a dozen stops frum tho door. Tho little girl led her negro protector to the scene, ami there tbo bodies, scorched beyond recognition, wero found, uutouch cd by the lyncher». There is but little doubt that the members of the mob will be captured, aa they were without masks and made no attempt at socrcoy. Wild Another Tragedy May Follow. It Is not improbable that the scenes of tho inhuman affair will Ire re-unacted In tho vicinity shortly, a» the outrage has aroused the must Intense indignation among tho people of the county, lie-cause of tho fact that West's relatives had threatened vengeance there Isa strong he llet that they are responsible fur tbo crime. Tho uncertainty, however, ns to just who was Implicated has so fur pre vented further trouble. Tho child of Dovoers who was a wit ness to the tragedy Is dangerously ill as tho result of tho fright and exposure, but upon hor recovery she may ho able, It Is hoped, to Identify some of tho lynchers. Thu night was brilliant with moonlight and tho unmasked faces of tho members of the mob should ho easily Identified as soon us tho ohlld is able to appear In court. Mrs. West's corpse was charred almost beyond human semblance. Overcome by the flames, she had fallen Into tho large old fashioned fireplace of the living room, and tho head was utmost burned from the body. Dovoor's body was pierced by at least 25 bullets, liefere hi» desperate dash far liberty ho had boon frightfully burned and would probably have died without the gunshot wounds. His hair and hoard wore burned off, his clothes wero In charred shreds and Ills face blis tered and blackened. No arrests have so far been made, but developments are expected.
