Zeter Lawrenei, Obarged With -ApAu1t or

in GreenvSine Ja'i.
Last Saturday night about 11
o'clook the few ptople who were ut
aind on the streets . were throwr
into a furor of rage and excito
ment, when Mr. H. Frank Smith, of
the Priffin church section of the
county, came into town and con.
suited with some of his friendh
and Sheriff Jennings, .1llug of the
foul crime that had been attempted
against the porsonas of 1i8 two
little innOcent girls, aged about
seven and nine years respefully.
At first, Mr. Smith was so
wrought up, lie thought of taking
thb law in his own hands and made
for the negro with an axe, the only
weapon he had bandy, but Zeta
took to the '-tall timber" at first
intimation of danger. Then Mr.
Smith, rather than arouse the
neighbors and have a lynching
scrape, come to Pickens and told
his story in all of its harrowing
details. Sheriff Jennings, as soon
as he heard of it, got together a
tried and true crowd of deputies,
consisting of Congressman George
F-. Lgaie, 11. A. Noaly and George
Chapman together with his two
sons, Earle and Richard, and went
to the home of Mansel Homphill,
who lives just beyond Secona
church, which they surrounded
and upon demanding admittance
they got the man they were after,

Z/eta, who was sleeping in another
room and finding all avenues of
ecapO out oiY, was making stealthy
steps toward the door through which
the sheriff had entered, his inten
tion being to take advantage ot the
night and make a break, but in
this he was foiled. He had not
counted on so many being in the
house, for while Congressman
Lagare and Hovoy Nealy were
covering each other's novements
by alternately lighting matches
and searching, Sheriff Jennings
quietly and thoughtfully dropped
inside the room by the door well
up in the shadow whore he could
obsarve all that was going on and
at.the same time guard this outlet.
Zeta saw what he thought was a
good opportunity to go through
this door, so began edging toward
it and ran right into the sheriff's
hands. He was brought on to Pick
ena ansl immediately hustled over
to Greenville and lodged in jail.
Considerable excitement wes
manifested, but no mob spirit ruled
and we doubt, very much, if the
prisoner had been placed in the
Pickens jail that thiere, would have
been any attempt ati a lynching.

threats of killing them, but they
told one of their little neighbor

news into the Smith household on
Saturday evening. Zeta, who was
farming up there and kept his
mule in Mr. Smith's stable, drove~
up in a few minutes After the re
volting tale had been told to Mr.
Smith, who was so shocked at the
discovery that he could not grasp
the meaning of it in all of its

Minss Carke's Recital.
On Monday night, August 27th,
Miss Irene Cle'ke's music class gave
thei annual recitnl in the school
auditorium at Libe ty. Although the
audience was quite good still it was
not e's crowded as it would have ban
had the weather been less inclement. .
The exeicises were thoroughly en. i
joyed by all present, as was attested
by the keen and enthusiastic applause
that eoch selection eliciti-d.
Miss Ceorke was eleganitly dressed
in a rich and hantiful lece effect
over uile gra3nu. In her management
of the stage she was apparently at
great ease and was a master of diroc t
tion. 1
Every picce rendered, whether
song or instrumental, showed that I
the performers had been given per
feet training and practice. The
writer was never more impressed I
than by the touch shown by tie
entire class, end espccially by little
Miss Irmin Mcravey. This attested
the fact that as a music teacher Miss
Clerke is of the best, both in talent
and experience.
