The negro, Sam Ho-e, who
killed young Cranford and as-
saulted Mrs. Cranford in Geor-
gia some ten days since, was
i burned at the stake by Georgia
j citiiens last Sunday. The negro’s
j ears, fingers and other portion*
ot bis body were cut off and
passed out among the maddened
throng to be kept as souvenirs.
Then a can of kerosene was pour-
ed over his already mutilated
! body, woojJ piled around him and
then the match was applied.
The negro confessed the crime.

The North ^Texas Anniversary
Association of Odd Fallows met in
Van Alstyne Wednesday. In the
morning EIJ. J. M. Campbell of
i this city delivered the welcome ad-
| dress, responded to by Grand
Master Edwards, of Dallas. At
! 1- o’clock diuner was served at
the Odd Fellows’ hall, and the
table fairly groaned witn rich aud
rare viands, calculated to please
the most fastidious tastes. Hon.
.I.R.Gough, of McKinney, made a
j speech in the afternoon to the del-
egation ami \ isitors, aud as usual
j bis speech wa»* uell received. The
\ au Al-tvne orchestra treated the
gathering to their choicest music
at intervals during the evening
-e-sion. All day Wednesday every
j train brought in delegates and
’ visitors, until ;n every direAion
one’s eye rested upon fair faces
! and bright costumes.
At •» o’clock Wednesday even-
i mg the association met in the hall
, and attended to some degree work,
, and soon thereafter the Rebekih
ladies -pread supper and eveiy-
j body feasted. At 7:30 the ladies
! of the local order entertained the
i delegates at the opera house with
music and recitations.
