Saved Prom the Grave.
Texarkana, Ark., March 19.
A case of resuscitation occurrec
about ten miles from this city yes
terday, the principal being a far-
mer named James Forebush. He
had been suffering with an acute
attach of grippe, when on Friday
morning the evidences of life passed
away. Forebush was laid out as
dead, and all preparations were
made for.his funeral. The coffin
was purchased of an undertaker.
Yesterday evening when the body
was being raised to be laid in the
casket, a life movement was noticec
on the man's face, which was fol-
lowed quickly by the opening and
twitching of the eyes. Immediate
efforts were made to restore anima-
tion. Forebush has recuperated
sufficiently to eat a little, and
though he is in a very prostrated
condition, there are strong symp-
toms of recovery shown in the pa?
tient. The trance lasted thirty-six

If the farmers of Lavaca county
could see the patch of Alfalfa grass
Alec Bonarden's place in Hal-
lets ville a large acreage of this pop-
ular feed stuff would be sown
once. There is no doubt that
Alfalfa is the coming feed product,
for it resists the drouth much bet-
ter than sorghum. Last year Mr.
Bonarden planted only a few ounces
of the seed and it all came up and
went through'the long drouth with-
out a scorched leaf. This year he
increased the patch now you ought
see it. Alfalfa is a species of
clover. Unlike sorghum, it doesn't
impoverish the land; it is a letch-
emus plant and draws on the at-
mosphere. Another redeeming fea-
ture of it is that when you want to
get rid of it all you have to do is to
plow it under. The Herald would
advise farmers to investigate this
matter. In Jackson county acres
and acres are raised.—Halletsville

BOETTCHER BROS GO.
Were Hnnted Down by Mobs in Little
River Coanty, Ark.
Texarkana, Texas, March 23.—
Information reaches here to-day to
the effect that the wildest excite-
ment prevails among the people of
Little River county, Ark., and that
six negroes have been lynched by
the citizens of that section.
The country is in a state of the
most intense excitement. White
men are collected in mobs, heavily
armed and determined; negroes are
lieeing for their lives and the com-
munity is in an uproar. The exact
number of .negroes who have been
summarily dealt with, or those
who may yet fall into the hands of
the mob before order is restored,
may never be known. Seven bod-
ies, (including that of Duckett)
have been found and other victims
are being hunted and will meet a
similar death when run to earth.
Joe King and Ed Johnson were
also taken in hand by mobs and
whipped; th#y were afterwards
turned i« ose and haive disappeared.
Little River county is in the ex-
treme south west corner of the state,
bordering <>n the west the Indian
Territory and on the south Texas.
The negro population is large and
has for a long time proved very
troublesome to the whites. Fre-
quent murders have occurred and
thefts aud lights have become com-
mon affairs. One or two negroes
have recently been severely dealt
with when the people found it
necessary to take the law into their
The affair comes direct from the
assassination of the planter, James
A. Stockton, by the negro, Gen-
eral Duckett, on last Friday, Duck-
ett having been subsequently
lynched in retribution of the crime.
Six are reported dead, and it is
stated in the telegram that in all
probability others have been hang-
ed and are swinging to limbs in the
Among those who have fallen
victiqis to the wrath of the whites
are Joe Edward Goodwin, Adam
Kin, Joe Jones,vBen Jones, Moses
Jones and still another whose name
could not be obtained. The last
three named were brothers and
were intimate with the assassin of
Stockton and it was discovered that
they were leading a scheme to
avenge their comrades' death.
The assault was ptovoked by the
unearthing of plots that the follow-
ers of General Duckett had con-
cocted, and as soon as the revela-
tion was made the citizens com-
menced their search for the princi-
pals. Friendly negroes of the
white people who had originally
informed Stockton of Duckett's
threat were the medium of know-
ing the facts against the present
victims, these informers them-
selves having been warned, under
the penalty of death, not to com-
municate the plans of the outlaws
to the whites.
It is learned that thirty-three ne-
groes were implicated in the plot
§nd the whites are now bent on
meeting out summary punishment
to the entire coterie of conspira-
tors. Seven have been killed and
the work of wiping out the entire
lift continues without relaxation of
determination. All implicated in
the plot are known. Wherever one
is found he is quickly strung up,
his Oody perforated with leaden
missies to make sure of their work,
and the mob hastens on in quest of
its next victim.
All of the victims that have
fallen before the whites wer« pur-
sued singly over the country and
met their fete at different times and
in different localities.
That Gatesville reformatory af-
fair smells to Heayen for shame.

be well to examine all the state in-
stitutions carefully? — Halletsville
