Then tho determined men procured oii well driljs and bat tered down tho doors and the murdor ous wretch was at their moroy. Ho was dragged out into tho street and taken to a bridge a short distanoo avay. A ropo was put around his nook and one end thrown over a oross piece of the struoture, when tho mob wero in the a.t of pulling him up a shot from a revolver parted tho ropo and the wretch fell to tho ground. But tho mob woro doterminod tho vvretoh should die. lie was quickly picked up and hustled to a telo graph polo where the lynching was comploted. Lytle diod without a strugglo. Tho author ities bad intended to scorotly convey the prisonor to a suburb at 10 o'olook, whero a train was to have been taken for Lima", but their plans woro frus trated by the vigilant mob. Lytlo evidently expected tho face ho met, for he left a noto asking that his body be turned over tu his brothor and that it bo buried beside his mother. His victims arc still alive, but tho death of Mrs. Lytlo and her dajghtor Delia is hourly expected. When tho mob made the rush on the jail they did not at tempt to get tbo sheriff's keys, but hurried baok to tho corridor. Lytle was pcrfeotly game and oallcd the mob's attention to his own cell as tho one thoy wanted. As tho body was pulled up a second time a dozen shots woro fired and tho end of the awful tragedy came. The mob is said to have been of tho beBt oitizens, but was poorly organized. . Ni:mtAMtA fiki:s. ill any I'nrniCN "Wined oiil I'lro Ex tongiilhlicd toibu KtitiKiiN I, Inc.
