a negro in her own home shortlyi

oldest 4 years old) watched.

gave his name as George Neal, of
Macon. Ga., was arrested on the
railroad tracks near here. He was
; carrying a club, on which w ere red
stains, and he was wearing a
sweater, on which also were red
stains. He explained that they j
were strawberry stains. An analy- •
sis is being made of the stains to
determine whether they were made
by strawberries or blood.
Neal was taken before Mrs. Sin
gleton, who Identified the club as
the one with which she was beaten
before being criminally assaulted.
She said that the negro resembled,
in a general way, the man who as
saulted her, hut she failed to Iden
tify him positively, because he did
not wear the green coat worn by
her assailant. The children were
too small to identify him.
