Almost daily wo read of some color- cd man being banged for rape by « mob. Now il seems fooliib, indeed, for colored men. with all the light of the past before them, will commit a crime that i^^^oople feel is worse than murder,and one from which there is no escape. Rape means death, and the fool who accomplishes it. never ex pects nothing else. Another Had Case. On lost Monday afternoon the sad news reached this city tliat Mrs. liuvenia llaglcr was dead. She died in Columbia S. C. on Monday at 10 minutes post ono, after several weeks suffering. She was a native of CharlcstouS. C. and the wife of Mr. William H. llaglcr of this city. She lAs a loving, kind- and nifcctionate woman. She wo.* loved *by all who knew her, a.s was evidenced by the great crowd.* that met the corpse at the depot. She was an affectionate and datiful wife, a consistent Christian, and from obUdhood a member of the Methodist chnrcb. The corpse arrived hero Tuesday evening and rested in Clinten Chapel till Wednesday morning and was from tbenco buried in Pinewood comotery. The husband and family have the sympathies of thp community. Clinton Chapel Sunday School. Clinton Chapel Sunday School was It iu full lost Sunday; the secretary reported four hundred present. In tho altar were Revs. C. L. Davis of Greensboro, C. C. Pettey, Herndon and Slade. Rev. Fred ,Tacobs nod .Mr. II. C. Chambers were also presptif. The seliool was addre by Prof. Davis who spoke very plimi-Mtitry of tin* school and crodilod villi being the largest he had the South. Rev. C. C. Pettey made a short addfliss, Tbcmllisic on tbb occasion was unusually good The choir seemed at its best as when Prof. Taylor waved the baton. Mrs Josic Heard presided at the organ This school is not only sustaining its reputation as the largest in the con- furcncc. but os the best singing Sun day School also. Hr. ColvlB’s Farm. A Bad Cose. The young white man i. I-%reco, BOW in jail for burglarizing Mr.^. J. Yates' house, b a son of Judg* Green of Sonth'Carolina. He b flmrgod a capital erime. '‘ne for whioh several mm have been hanged in Meoklenburg county. Hb ease .-is -a bad one. One that excites gineb interest for several reasons. The sentiment of this comionnity-b’de- eidedly strong against this crime, and if thb young man is courieted it will be proven whether or not white men snd eolorud wen are punished alike for the same crime. Aceiiis that this young man comes from one of the best families of South Carolina. That is-bnd on society and tho good people of South Carolina as well as tho circle into which ho enter ed here in our city. He was given to drinking and card playing—two very bad habits. % A wateb stolen from Mr Vatos^ bouse at the lime of the burglai^,. was pa-wned by the prisoner to a hotel clerk fur bis bo.ird.
