Following an' attempt to assault a young "woman in Mount Croghan, a small town near here,. a negro from North. Carolina, whose name has not been learned, Is believed to have been lynched. The attempt at assault was committed at noon yesterday, and all day yesterday and last night parties of frenzied men searched the woods for the criminal. Patrties of men returning this morn ing were non-committal as to whether the negro was caught or not, but it is thought, from the bearing of the pursuers, that the negro was captured and put to death in the woods some where in this section. The victim of the attempted assault is one of the most prominetn and well connected young .women of this section, and the"crime stirred . up un usual excitement and anger. - ' Sheriff Douglass of .Chesterfield county was on the scene and sought to capture the negro, but was unsuc cessful.
