Avenged By The Law After Several Delays. Tragedy Was One OF The Most Atrocious Crimes IN ANNALS OF MISSISSIPPI. Oxford, Miss., Sept. 24.—Ma this and Lester were hanged al 12:50 o’clock this afternoon. There were fully 8.000 people assembled at the place of execu tion, 6ne mile south of town. The procession left the jail al 11:45, and as the roads were rough the ride was necessarily slow, and it was 12:25 p. m. when they reached the place of execution. The prisoners were conveyed in a wagon, surrounded by ten arm ed guards. Upon reaching the gallows, Sheriff Harkins led the proces sion up the steps, followed by Jailer Ragland, who had Mathia. Deputy Ramey followed with Lester, and Rev. N. \V. P. Bacon, the Baptist minister, accompanied the party, while Rev. A. Williams pastor of the colored Baptist church, came next. Mathis smiled as he walked up on the scaffold, and spoke to sever al persons whom he recognized. When asked by the crowd tc make a statement he said he had nothing to say, as he had told al! he knew on the witness stand. Lester said he had been forced to do so by Oweii9 and Mathis and that Mathis set tire to the I1UUSH HUU IIJHL .JHCKSOIl liatl 1101!. ingtodo with the killing, ami Mathis joined him in declarin'; Jackson innocent. Owens was theie and assisted Mrs. Mathis in packing up hei clothes. The condemned man talked foi twenty minutes, and when the blackcap was being adjusted Ma this said he was au innocent man and thanked the officers. At 12:49 the cap was adjusted and at 12:50 p, m. the two murder ers shot through the trap. ; Lester died at 1:14£, and Mathii was declared dead by Drs. Candlei . and Wilkins at 1:14. 1 The remains were turned ove; 1 to the relatives, and the crowi quietly dispersed. Mathis stated he wanted to correc the report that Prosecuting At tor ney Roane had made concession 1 to him if he would tell ou Owens 9 but that Mr. Roane made no suel statement. The two men were told to pa on their funeral clothes, whicl . they did* Mathis said he wa prepared to die, and his only re gret was leaving his wife am child behind. His wife wanted to see.him thi morning, but Sheriff Harkins re I fused her admittance. Popular Fallacy. Generally Believed in But Never Existed. Strange Hold of An Untruth One of the most widely current and inexplicable fallacies that are generally believed is called to mind by the coming of the Adam Forepaugh and Sells Hro thers Enormous Shows I'nited. It is the silly twaddle about big shows divid ing and showing in small cities and town in different sections of the country on the same day the coming together again in the large cities and showing as one exhibition. It is, a matter of fact, one of the most absurd ideas in the world, and persons ordinarily sane up on every other subject will persist in be lieving that such things are done, not withstanding the tact that it is abso lutely so much without foundation in fact that such a thing has never even once been attempted much less being done as a regular custom. It would tie just as easy to cut a horse in two and send him up two loads at one time and then when a main road is reached put him together again. 11 is simply a physical impossibility for shows to he first divided and then united, and ke< p thepublicinignorai.ce at it. Any man who could invent a system that would make such a thing possible would have a fortune, ft never has been done, it is not done nor will it, in all human probability, ever be done by these shows or any others. So. when the Adam Forepaugh and Sells Brothers Shows come here they will be exactly the same as they were in New York, Brooklyn, f’hilndelpbia and all the other cities they have visited this season, and if any one wants to gamble on it there is no possible chance of losing any money wagered on that proposition, no matter what anyone says or believes. They will be here in all their entirety on Mon day October (> at 10 a. m. VERONA Mrs. ranine Crawford of Mon rot* conn tv, left Wednesday, after a pleasant weeks visit to her sister, Mrs. T. M.

Miss Kilpatrick’s return is hailed with de light by her friends, which means every body. She will teach in our High School this year, much to the satisfac tion of all its patrons.

J Mr, B, F, Francis is confined to his room by a sprained ankle which is very painful. i ,®,HPh Sc‘,l.eH' u trusted old servant, 1 died here Friday night last and was buried with great pomp and circum stance Sunday. The>e were at least a 1 thousand persons present at his burial. ♦ Murdock of Tupelo officiated. He , was buried by the colored Odd Fellows and other societies of which he was a ’ member.
