Dunlap, VIDALIA, Ga., July 25.—Frank Earle, a negro desperado, who held up and robbed a commissary clerk at Davis* camp No. 2 on the Macon, Dublin and Savannah railway near here last Mon day, was captured yesterday at Helena, carried to Higgston and put in tho town jail. This morning about 2 o’clock a crowd unknown men took him from the jail, carried him out Half a mile from Higgston and shot him to death. Earle admitted robbing the clerk, but claimed he only wanted to collect what Contractor. Davis owed him for work. On last pay day Davis had offered him his wages, but Earle refused to accept the money. Davis was absent Monday when Earle returned, urrned with a rifle. He held up the clerk and robbed him of $20, which was more than was him, according tb his own state ment. Leaving the camp, Earle turned Ills steps toward Higgston, and while on the way he held up two farmers and re Sieved them of their guns. He then proceeded on his Journey and when near Alley he accosted two negroes and made them turn over their "shooting irons" to him. Farther on he took pistol from a man named Levorett. When Earle reached Alley he boarded est-bound train for Helena, at which place he was arrested, a request hav ing been received by Marshal Smith to effect the capture. An officer was sent from Vidalla to get the prisoner. When the officer arrived, he at once recognized the negro, who was taken In custody and carried to and placed in the town Jail at Higgston, from hich he was taken by unknown parties and put to death. Earle, when told he was to be taken back to Vidalla, exhibited great fear for his life upon his arrival there, spent the afternoon in lamentations over his probable fate, saying that if vas carried back he would lynched. His fear increased ns the Ume for his departure arrived; and his loud yells attracted the attention of the hole town. It was necersary to bind him In order to force him on the train, There was a reward of 525 offered fern his arrest, which will doubtless be paid to Marshal Smith. Earle came here recently. It is said he was from Atlanta. Ho was a tall negro, about 24 years old. Scars on his person, recently healed, • Indicated gun-shot wounds. TV. R. Rosera, L. TV. Hunt, R. E. Park, II. J. Lamar, TV.

ATLANTA, July 25.—A white man hose identity has not as yet beer established, was killed last night about clock near the Butler street cross ing by a switch engine of the Georgia railroad. Engineer George Fallings nv the man on the track and called to him to get out of the way. The man stepped from the track, but a moment later walked back on the right-of- He was knocked down And dragged under the engine. The head was crushed by one of Jthe wheels of the locomotive and be died almost instantly. In his pocket was found a printed card reading “C. L. Kinard, Sylvester, Ga., shippers of water melons and fruits." A telegram was to Sylvester and instructions came back to ship the body at once. There Is little doubt but that this is the man’s name. Kinard was in At lanta yesterday selling melons from the Central railroad track, and as he can not be found today the Impression is that the dead man is the mining melon dealer. The crushed condition of his head and face renders his identi fication impossible. The body was for warded to Sylvester this afternoon. BROKE JAIL BARS AT BLACKSHEAR Ive Prisonrr* Encnped by Snwln Iron Roil* From Window* anil Ai Still nt Lnrge. BLACKSHEAR, July 25.—Five pris oners escaped from jail here last night by sawing the iron bars from the win dow.

The ninety-two-foot iron girders for the Whitehall street viaduct are also delayed for the same reason.

The two girders are to span the railroad track's and are Im portant factors in the construction of the viaduct.

In ten years this has advanced to 5105,675,810. Since then there has been a steady Increase In production, until today it may be com paratively estimated that the value of the output, including the material UBed for cross-ties, fuel and fencing and the naval stores by-products, is between $325,000,000 and $350,000,000. With no change in the methods which have been generaly followed In lumbering op erations, the output in the South might be expected to reach at some time a point where an annual decline instead of an annual Increase will he reported, but this may be prevented and the tim ber of the South may be made u per- petual source of wealth. In this week’s issue of the Manufacturers’ Record is noted the beginning of a plan for a conservative handling of Southern for ests, which, generally applled.will make them permanently productive. On this point the Mnnuacturers’ Record says: ‘For several years, Mr. Grorgo W. Vanderbilt, on his estate at Blltmore, N. C., has been giving to tho $outh and to the rest of the country n magnifi cent object lesson of the value of sci entific handling of the forests. Such object lefeson has been greatly need ed. Much of the advance made by the South as a producer of lumber has been due to the failure in other parts of the country to adopt plain, common- sense methods In lumbering opera tions. Immense tracts of tlsiber laud have been denuded by the wholesale, with a great waste of cut timber, de struction of younger growth and tin absolute disregard of tho future. With tho transfer of energies to tho South and an acceleration of those already there, like carelessness and lack of foresight have been manifested. The efforts of the forestry division of the United States department of agriculture culminating In the plan for a vast for est reservation nt the summits of the Appalachians in five or six Southern states and the work of such progressive men as Mr. Vanderbilt have done much to fasten attention upon the necessity for a conservative handling of tho for ests still standing in the South and a reservation of woodland in regions de- voVed wholy to agriculture, or left to wnste after the turpentine workers and lumbermen have wrought their work. "One state in the South which has come to the front ns a lumber produ cer seems destined to become the lend er in the adaptation of common senso nnd science to lumbering undertakings. 50 Buys to-day a cool neglige shirt worth regular price $1.00 ^fi-ri-rt>rr-rt\\'’rr^rr;rr'rr‘rr .tfjtritr -rr-rr-n-rr-rr-frtyn w.u;w.u.\u/;.\\iuiu;tta\ .w.w.vv .vv. ; vf .vva\ .vx m sjg SfS §13 k k Is Si k §s k p 913 P p 1 Good and Wholesome. 1 Those who know a good thing in- fc|<5 sist on having tho colobratod 30 “AMERICAN QUEEN” 1 boer.

This Immense increase is strong evldenco of the prosperity of Decatur county and speaks volumes for the people of the county.

I window In Minneapolis, Minn., a num- roxns the statement was made that It had entered into a cnntrnct with the Kirby Lumber Company, organised nt the same time for the sale and manu facture of the timber standing on the 1.000,000 acres of Its oil lands. This rontract Involves the cutting of 8,000.- 000,000 feet of timber nt the rule of no$ than 350.000.000 feet n year. If tho minimum only shall be cut nearly tw«n- ty-three years will cover the contract. Under ordinary conditions It might bo expected that tho close of those twen ty-three years would show a vast tract land nt the mercy of the ele ments. The contrnet between th« oil company and the lumber company con templates no such thing. It looks to the exploitation of tho forest, nnd, nt tho same time ,to Its Indefinite preser vation, if not cultivation. No treo less than one foot In diameter is to be cut nnd care is to be had that snpilngs and other young growth are to be un injured. The results of this undertak ing may be easily estimated for tho particular tract. They menn a sour 1 "* of steady wealth. They mey be dupli cated In other parts of the South." In spite of tho decrease of pine li the rest of the country there are largo amounts of virgin timber of the kind In several states toward which the saw* mill and the lumber railroad are ad vancing. Increasing demands of sgrl- culture may require a permanent clear ing of some of the uncut forests, but there are vast tracts best suited to forest growth, not only as sources of lumber supply, but as regulators of tho flow of streams Important to com merce nnd manufacture# nnd ns equa ble modifiers of climate. At tho same time the rise of such industrial centres ns High Point. N. C„ with woodworking interests, especially furniture making, as their foundation. Is Increasing tho necessity of a steady supply from the saw mill. For many reasons, therefore, the success of the Texas experiment should lead to similar action in other parts of the South.
