The merry spring has come agen As likewise has the showers: We feel a bed bug now an' then, An' soon will see the flours. The grass will soon beegittin green Just like the spring time lovers Will on the gait an' lawn be scene Like spoonin turtle dovers. It makes us feel like gittin out An' rompin in the medders: An' playin tag with some big lout Or turnin double heddcrs. We watch the grass for datferdills An' frogs an' other Hours: An' take some biters oope an" pills Toj ease our tired ours. The tlees will bite the sleepi n dog An make him scratch like sixty: The Katy did purehed on the log Will holler to his Trixty. An then we'll shoe our nabers hen An also cuss the nabor: We'll beard the bed bug in his den, An thus waist all our labor. NEGRO HANGED AT FT. SMITH Ft. Smith, Ark., March 23. A mob of 500 persons tonight sur rounded the Crawford County jail at Ft. Smith and secured by force an unidentified negro who was shortly after midnight hanged to a telephone pole in front of one of the leading hotels in the city. The mob, after a futile attempt to break in the doors of the pri son, pried off the window bars with telephone poles and used one of the telephone poles as a scaffold to suspend the negro. As he was dragged through the principal streets before the lynching the negro pleaded for mercy. He had earlier in the night shot and killed Detective A. J. Burke in the lobby of the hotel before which he was hanged. After the body was cut down by officials the mob dispersed quietly. No attempt was made to arrest any of the participants.
