TWO ASSAULTS AT SPEN
A Pistol is Fired at Mrs. Lively A
Negro in Her Room Mrs.
Spencer, our rapidly growing:
neighbor is becoming- noted as a
law-breaking place. j
The record this morning marks
two negro outrages of .a blood
curdling nature. - - J
Mrs. 15., F. Lively, . who now
lives at Spencer, had stepped out
of her" house this morning and on
her return found a big, black
burly negro in one of her roomsJ
On coming in contact with her he
drew a pistol and ri red upon her;
then iumped from a window and
made his escape. Officers were
put in pursuit but at last accounts
had not caught him.
Fortunately Mrs. Lively was
not hit by the bullet from the pis--tol
of the negro. ' j
An hour or so. later Mr. John
C. Winders, well-known as Cal
Winders," a good Populist, and who
lives at Spencer, came to town
and swore out a, warrant against
Laura Mitchell and daughter,1
colored, for assaulting his wife
With tears in his eyes he told his
tale. It came about ' by , stabbing
or staking a cow out to graze.
The cow had turned over a stack
of corn in a field. There was a
dispute, when the negro woman
Laura Mitchell, grabbed Mrs.
Winders and choked her and at
the same time the negro's daugh-j
ter came up and struck Mrsv Win-;
ders with a stick. 1
i Officers will endeavor to uppre-j
hend the offenders and bring them
to justice. Violations of this kind
are quite common at Spencer. j
There was a difficulty between
some white and colored men- at
Spencer Saturday night. No one
was seriously injured, we learn, j
A Series of meetings was begun
at the school house near the Vance
mil Mast night. Services will be
held each evening this week at
7:45 o'clock. . Mr. Campbell, of
Spencer, will assist in the meeting.
