Negro Killing Saturday Night.
Pierce Davenport, a colored railroad
section hand, was shot and instantly
killed Saturday night by a negro farm
laborer named Henry Heasley. The
killing occurred on the railroad between
the city and Watts Mills and was wit
nessed by six or eight other negroes.
It seems that the principals had a quar
rel, when Reasley went otF and pro
cured a gun and, on returning to the
scene of the first encuonter, raised his
gun and shot Davenport dead in his
The city authorities were notified of
the murder some time later and about
midnight Chief Hagwell and Special
Constable Owings went out and found
Heasley in his own house asleep. He
was arrested and brought to the city
lock-up and this morning turned over to
the sheriff, who committed him to jail.
Coronor Watts came up from Clinton
and held the inquest over Davenport at
noon. The verdict was in accordance
with the above facts.

earnestness, is composed, and be speaks*
without haste, strain or flurry. Hin

The strength of his speeches does not
come from the florid ornament to which
be is given, but from their simple dic

that must be truo which has been made
so easy to understand. World's Work.

nine days. Our store was continually crowded with eager shoppers, whose ap
preciation of values offered was attested by their liberal purchases, yet there
