The Lexington County Corn Grow i
ers association and Boys Corn Club v
held their annual meeting in the a
Court oHuse in Lexington Saturday t
i Dec. 1 and it was a complete sue- b
cess both from a stand point of at- o
tendance and exhibits . More in-' h
terest was manifested at this meet-1 c
ing than any previous one shown ?
that the farmers of Lexington conn- 1
ty are wide awake and are improv I
ing their Corn Crops each year. It C
was impossible to get the details and I
list of premiums awarded for pub- e
ligation this week, but a full ac- i
count of the entire meeting will be e
published nert week. v

Robert Fox On Last
.John Henry Snelgrove, a well
known young farmer residing about
5 miles west of Lexington was seriously
cut by a negro man known as
"Fox" Saturday afternoon at the
front entrance to Caughman-KaMilier
Co's. store. It seems that few
words were passed between Snel
grove and the negro. Snelgrove waa
standing just inside the store door
and as "Fo*'' entered, he pushed the
door open against Snelgrove, causing
him to say something to "For"
about walking over him, when 'Tor'
immediately began cutting Snelgrove
with a large pocket knife, cutting
him in the face several times, one
stab going through to his mouth an*
splitting his tongue. He hlso re*
reived several stabs in the back and
Snelgrove was rushed to the Baptist
Hospitai in Columbia as it was
thought that he was fatally hurt.
The physicians had considerable tro*
ble in stopping the flow of blood
which was very profuse especially
from the gash in his tongue. The
last report received from the hospital
was to the effect, that he is r*
proving some but is not yet out of
"Fox" is said to be one of the negroes
brought to Lexington several
years ago from the Hagenback and
Wallace circus, to stand trial for
the murder of Paul Williams, a young
man from Columbia who was riding
on the Circus train. He was arrested
late Saturday night by Sheriff
Miller and is now confined in the
county jail awaiting the outcome of
Snelgrove's wounds.
