MURDERED BY A MOB.
The Terrible Torture rH T s Ne.
pro Rapist In Tennessee-Mas Liter
ally filiot to Pieces.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Oct. 5,
The details of the lynching of Neal
Smith, the negro rapist at Coal
City, which fact was reported last
night are as follows:
Smith was taken from the stock
ade used for confining prisoners by
a moo ot not less than two hundred
men The sheriff and jailer, Ed.
Qox, with several men, were on
guard, but the crowd refused to lis
ten to reason, and threatened to tear
down the sfockade and burn it un
less Smith was delivered. Smith
was then turned oyer to the crowd,
who led him to a point near where
the assault was committed.
He confessed his guilt and was
then treated to a torture unparal
leled in history.
After being mutilated in a fright
ful manner by the father, Wm
Henderson, who subsequently cut
off the negroe's ears, he was seized
and held while one of the crowd
pounded his fingers, joint by joint,
one finger at a time, until the hand
was one shapeless mass of bloody
This was because in the struggle
to sntdue Miss Henderson he had
bitten off one of her fingers. Each
man in the crowd then took a turn
at shooting at him, until, when he
died, he must have had four or five
pounds of lead in him.
He was literally shot to pieces,
and the bloody pulp which only an
hour before had been Neal Smith,
was thrown into a hastily prepared
pile of brush wood and burned un
til not a scrap of bone remained.
Hiss Henderson, his victim, is in
a dying condition.

The protracted meeting now in

Xotes From the Reed Mine.
Mr. R W Gadd, of the Reed mine,

cotton is short. He expected five
bales, but will get only two bales.
Mr Gadd savs there is some talk
of rebuilding the missionary school
building that was burned down at
Mr. Gadd says you can see the ef

Shafts are being sunk at the Reed
mine. Up to this time only washing

Joe's Horse Stolen.
Sunday night old man Joe Grier
saddled Bud, his faithful old bay
horse and rode him to preaching at
Zinn Methodist church. The horse
was tied on the outside, while Joe
went in to worship. Whether the
All Sppinor took comnassion on the
beast and angels bcre it away may
never be kuown, but the animal can't

is thought that some devlish boys
stole and hid Joe's Bud away.
The Water Supply.
Many towns are becoming alarmed
about the scarcity of water, Char
lotte hasen't enough to eprinkle its
streets, and other towns are more or
less alarmed about the water ques
tion. Here in Concord there is no alarm.
Our water comes from good wells
and the water system is backed up
by an inexhaustible spring that does
its do in dry as well as wet weather.
Col. James M. Means Left ToUhv.
As heretofore stated in The
Standard, Col. Janes Means, who
has been a resident of Texas for 22
years next month, arrived in Con
cord on Thursday morning, Septem
ber 26th, on a visit to his relatives
here, after an absence from Cabarrns
of 13 years. He left Concord this
morning on the vestibule tram, No.
37, which was flagged down here for
him. During his stay here he met
with many friends who were, much
pleased to see his handsome and
genial face again and' the sight of
whom delignted him. While his
Tisit was to all his brothers and
their wives and his only sister here,
he v as the guest of Col. and Mrs.
Paul B Means, and we know that
eyerthing was done there for his
comfort and happiness that could be
done anywhere ; we are near neigh
bors to Paul Means and his wife
and their kind, generous hospitality
will make glad whomsoever may be
their guest : we also happen to know
that there exists a peculiarly close
and deyoted affection between Paul
and James Means and we feel sure
that this love for his brother, in
which Mrs. Paul Means fully enters,
brought all the happiness to the long
absent brother that even he could
expect and that the parting between
tnem this morning was painful.
Mr. and Mrs. William G Means
gave all the family a splendid din
ner and entertainment on the night
of the 27th, where ''brother James"
was the "honored guest," and a
similar feast was fully prepied at
the home of Col. Paul Means and
wife on the night of the 28th ult,
but Col, James Means sprained his
ankle seriously about 4 o'clock on
that afternoon and the enjoyment of
this feast was marred to all by the
painful injury to the visiting
brother; and, much to their regret,
the injurv prevented Mr. and Mrs,
George W Means and Mrs, Bettie
Johnson from extending hospitali
ties they intended.
From the nignt of the 28th, ult ,
except for a short while yesterday
afternoon, Col. James Means was
confined to his ted but the contin
uous yisits of his relatives and his
friend! of other families to his bed
room showed that "Jim Means" was
long ago and is now a general favo
rite ne4e. And he left regretting
that he failed to see many friends
whohe was anxious to meet.
Under the skillful and faithful
treatment of Dr. Archey, assisted by
Dr. John Reed, he was enabled to
leave this morning, much sooner and
in a better condition than could oth.
erwise have been expected, consider
ing theseverity of the sprain. And
whenever he can return and bring
his wife with him they will find a
warm welcome here at tre home of
his childhood and young manhood.
