Powell was at the residence of Mr. Mc

i the remark that be would go hbome,

fire. Mrs. McRae said that she would
send her house boy to do it and for
him to remain until his room became
warm. The two little boys wanted to
go with the colored boy, which they
did, and when only in the house a few
niouients, a shot was heard cominlg
froin that direction, and itpon going
over there, discovered the colored nov
