Bricks came down Irom the high

A FAMINE III PORTIONS OF TEXAS.
The People of Zapat Comaty
San Antonio, Tex., Aug. 25.
Reports ioday from Zapata county
there are news that the poor classes
there are facing starvation. They
must have immediate help In the
way of food or the results will be
terrible. Branch water has failed
nd cattle are too weak to travel and
are dying rapidly. The country is
literally burned up by drought.
There Is not a green thing to be
seen except cactus plants. Zapata
county Is 60 miles irom the nearest
railroad and whatever way food is
sent to the farmers in the famine
stricken place must be hauled from
Laredo, a two-days' trip at best.
' Mayor Hicks, of this city, has
started a relief fund and has already
sent a small sum of money to Laredo
ta be used In 'buying food for the
sufferers, but what he has i sent is
barely a drop In the bucket. Relief
work will be continued here. Noth

The New Plow.
One of the latest things in the
way of farming utensils is the elec
tric plow. The first plows used in
this country were projielled' bv men
and women. Then the ox and tho
mule and the horse came in use, and
finallp man learned how to make
his plow so he could ride and let
the horse or other beast of burden
do all the "sweating."
Now the farmer comes out with
his electric plow, and instead of
making one or two or three furrows.
he attaches enough - plows to clean
up a whole field at one or two
swiies. Conrad Meissner of Fred-
ricksburg, Germany is accredited
with the invention of this plow. It
is operated somewhat on the plan
of the electric car. exceot that
well, we will just quote from th
piece from which we get our infor
mation: "It consists of two electric
moters operating winding drums and
separate carriages, which may be
placed at any required distance apart,
only one moter being connected
witli the main feed wire. To sup
ply iower to the second motor a
feed cable lying parallel with the
raction cable is readjusted at every
trip of the plow to follow the fatter
down the field. The mechanism is
so adjusted that when once set in
motion the apparatus practically
operates itself, moving tho carriages
brward at the beginning of each
trip to bring the plow shares in
position for the next row of furrows
The plows are attached to a two
wheeled truck which is pulled back
and forth across the field, movinsr
forward at the end of each set of
urrows as long as the power is turn

EXPELLED FROM PIERCE CITY-
NECROS DRIVEN OUT FOR CRIMES COM

Several Honaea Were Burned and One

Others Chased From the City.
Pierce City, Mo., Aug. 20. For
nearly fifteen hours ending about
noon to-day this town of 3,000 peo
ple has been in the hands of a mob
of armed white?, dptermined to
drive every negro from its precincts.
In addition to the- lynching last
night of William Godley, accused of
the wanton murder of Miss Gazelle
Wild, and the shooting to death of
his grandfather, French Godley, the
mob today cremated Peter Hampton,
an aged negro; in his home, set the
torch to the houses of five blacks,
and with the aid of State militia
rifles, stolen from the local com
pany's arsenal, drove dozens of
negroes irom town. Alter noon
the excitement died down, the mob
gradually dispersing, more from
lack of negroes upon whom to wreak
their hatred than for any other
cause. Many of the negroes who
fled from the city are hiding in the
surrounding woods, while others
have gone greater distances in seek

AN IMMIGRATION SCHEME
TO SWINDLE THE
OFFICIALS INVOLVED IN THE FRAUD.
Chinese With the Letter A Marked
Their CerUScates Passed Wit host Ques
tionThe Lttr Indicated That Thsy

Washington, August 24 Proba
bly the most important arrests ever
made in connection with the smug
gling of Chinese across the Mexican
border Into the United States were
- a a
aiaue yesieraay in Arizona, when
Wm. M. Hoey, collector of customs
at Nogales; B. F. Jossey, an immi
grant inspector, Frank How, a China
man living in Nogales, and another
Chinaman living at Clifton, Mexico,
just across the border from Nogales,
were taken into custody by special
agents of the Treasury and Secret
Service operatives. Other arrests
are expected to iollow within a day
or two. It Is stated that with two
or three exceptions, the whole cus
toms and immigration administra
tion at Nogales is involved. Some
time ago an official of the Treasury
Department, having Nogales as his
headquarters, wrote the Department
that he had reason to believe the
official force at that point was cor
rupt and that Chinese in large num
bers were being smuggled across the
border for a consideration.
A Secret Service operative was
sent there at once and plans laid to
eecure evidence against the persons
under suspicion. Several Chinamen
were furnished with money and
sent to buy their way through the
official cordon. This was accom
plished without difficulty, the price
demanded being from $50 to $200.
The Secret Service men also arrang
ed with one or two employes whose
nonesty has been tested, to go into
the collector's office at a certain time
and demand a share of the monev
being received from the Chinamen
and to be admitted into the combi
nation, so that they might get their
share of the proceeds of future deals.
This was reluctantly agreed to and
considerable sums of money were
handed over in the presence of a
Secret Service man who had ore-
viously secreted himself in a nearby
office closet. The officials eoon
found that Chinamen who presented
a certificate marked with the letter
A were allowed to proceed without
question, while thoee having certifi
cates that did not bear this cabalistic
mark were turned back without cere
mony. Later on it developed that
the letter A on a certificate indicated
that the amount demanded had been
paid. Several Chinamen were sent
through with the requisite A mark
on their certificate made by one of
the Secret Service men. The ut
most care and secrecy was maintain
ed from the first to secure positive
proof against each man under suspi
cion. A special United States attor
ney will be detailed to prosecute the
persons Arrested. Hoey was ap
pointed collector about a year and a
half ago. His home is in Muncie.

The number of Chinamen who

finds it necessary.

None of the deputies of the sheriff's
posse were wounded. The two men
shot were brothers and son of the
leader of the mob, who made the
first dash for the room in the court
house where the prisoner was being
guarded. The father is about 53
years of age. In leading the charge
against the deputies he flourished a
gun in regular soldier fashion. Af
ter the shooting and while members
of the mob were searcning for rein
forcements, the negro was smuggled
from the rear of the court house by
two deputies wno managed to run
him through the country for several
miles, finally succeeded in in flag
ging a freight train and bringing
tho negro to Birmingham where he
is safely locked in the county jail.
While on the train the negro con
fessed the crime and told the horri
ble story with full details. Ths trial
of the negro, on the charge of the
assault was completed shortly after
10 o'clock. The young woman. Miss
Garrett, told the story of the crime
and identified the negro as her as
sailant. No witnesses were Intro
duced by the defence. A verdict of
guilty was brought in by the jury
after an absence of only nine min
utes. Judge Pelham, presiding, sentenc
ed Brown to be hanged September

members of the mob attempted to
make the sheriff promise to keep the
prisoner in Asheville, but he stated
that he had instructions to do other

attempt to remove the negro from
tne court house. Sheriff North re
fused and the fight began at once.
The Elder Blankenship will die.
Threats have been made to wreck
the court house with dynamite, but
it is not believed tho- threats will
be carried out.

There was perhaiM a fatal shooting

As Messrs. Krne.4 Workman and
W. C. Creel, of this pla.e, were
bringing some beef cattle home and
were In the edge of Caswell county,
they saw two negroes in a field about
fifty yards from the road. As they
passed they heard several pistol
t-hots and raw one man run off. They
went to see what was the matter
and found the man covered with a
shock of hay and badly shot in the
arm, side and hip. They called in
help, sent for a doctor and did all
thty could to relieve the fellow.
They suppose he Ls fatally wounded.
It is thought the quarrel grew out
of a game of cards. The negro shot
was named Clem Sutton, and the
one who did the shooting was Pink
Long. They are both defpeate
characters. When the gentlemen
left the negro was still at large.
Esquimaux Old Not Like Fat M n.
Washington, Aug. 23. The Im
migration brreau has ordered that
the three Labrador Esquimaux ex
hibited at the Pan-American Expjsi
tion be sent back to their homes.
They were brought to Buffalo by a
concessionaire of the exposition
known as the Labrador Exio-ition
Comittny, and the Esquimaux gave
a daily entertainment on the mid
way. Some time ago Jerimios, the
youngest of the trio, manifested a
violent dislike for fat men, and
whenever a fat man appeared in the
audience at one of the entertain
ments Jerimios made for him with
blood in his eyes and a knife. The
matter was reported to the Treasury
Department and the order was sent
today that the Esquimaux be taken
home by way of New York, which
port they entered last spring when
they came to this country.
