Neighbors EmpasizeThelr Demand in
a Very Forcible Manner.
Mr. K A Lynch, mail carrier on
the stare route to Rowan Poato'ffice,
this county, tells m the particulars
of an episode which happened aloog
his route Tuesday.
Beck Henry, a dissolute woman,
living with her two children two and
a tulf miles from Ptowan, had been
asked to vacate and she refused.
Tuesday she was waited upon by
several neighbors who demanded
that she leaye the community. She
would not leave, but went over to
her father's house several miles
away to tell of the visitors and their
demands. While she was gone her
two children were coaxed out into
the woods and several dynamites
placed under the house.
The explosion that followed wa3
heard half mile.
The woman's bed was torn to
pieces and several logs knocked out
of the side of the house. She returned
to find it in this condition and it is
not likely that she will remain in
the neighborhood. The people in
the neighborhood of Rowan are
quite and peaceable disposed as a
general thing, but they have deter
mined to rid the community of this
disreputable character. Salisbury
