FOUR MEN TO BE HANGED ON
Four men, all of them whites, are now
lying in the county jail of Burnet county,
Texas, under sentence of death, all to be
executed at the same place on January
15. Tlinr names are Benjamin Shelby,
Arthur Shelby, Ball Woods and William
Smiih. They were all eenteuced for the
murder of Benjamin McKeever. Their
cage, taken in all its details, is one of the
most interesting in the annals of criminal
trials. The evidence against them,
though conclusive, was entirely circum
stautial. McKeever was shot from his
horse at night uear the residence of the
Slielbvs, his ihroat then cut, and his body
carried on horseback three miles and
thrown into a cave. A large rock was
placed on the bloody spot where his throat

true to her idea. She won't know that

she rallies at forty and coufronts us with
