Exeontion to Bentre-PnUc t e"-

Full of the Trap Story of the
Crime for Which Herndon Died.
Washington. Ga.. Aug. 17*—Dillard Hern
don was hanged here to-day between 1
and 2 o’clock, the execution taking place
in a large barn In the rear of the jail.
The prisoner kept his nerve to the last
and walked upon the scaffold without any
visible sign of fear.
He made a short statement, warning
others to beware of his example. He said
he killed Lovingood for money; that he
was seduced by the devil and his mind
was partly unbalanced.
Herndon’s neck was broken by the fall.
It was fifteen minutes before his pulse
ceased to beat.
The crime for which Dillard Herndon
paid the penalty on the gallows, was com
mitted on Oct. 9, 1899, when he shot John
!Lx>vingood to death with a double-bar
Lovingood kept a store near Pistol, a
small place about eighteen miles from
Washington, and was a quiet inoffensive
young man. well liked by every one.
Herndon came to Lovingood’e store early
that morning, bringing his gun, and loot
ed around the store nil day. Late in the
afternoon, he purchased some goods, ask
ing Lovingood to change a S2O bill for him.
Lovingood opened the safe, took out the
money and laid it on the counter.
While he was counting out the change.
Herndon, who was standing directly In
front of him. about three feet away, raised
his gun and deliberately tdiot Lovingood,
the ball entering his neck and breast.
The muzzle of the gun was so close co
the victim that his clothing was burnt
by the discharge.
Lovingood staggered toward a side door
about Twenty feet away, but before he
reached the door, Herndon shot him
again, slightly wounding him in the
shoulder. The dying man managed to
stagger out of the door and ucross the
road where he fell unconscious in a ditch.
Hern-don then returned to the store nnd
took from the safe ail the money that it
contained, about $26. He then went out
to where Lovingood lay and began fan
ning him with his hnt. Some of the
neighbors coming up about this time,
Herndon told them that an old yellow cat
had knocked the gun off the counter ami
caused it to discharge, killing Lovingooi.
The dying man regained consciousness
long enough to accuse Herndon of mur
dering him for money, which was stren
uously denied by Herndon. Lovingood
lived for about half on hour. Herndon
was allowed to return to his home, about
three miles distant, but was arrested that
night, making no attempt to escape or re
sist. When requested to do so, he hand
ed the constable the money and a ring he
had taken from the !afe.
Herndon was tried at the November
term of court, and was defended by able
counsel, who filed a plea of insanity at
the time of the killing. After remaining
out for a week, the jury failed to report,
and a mistrial was the result.
He was again put on trial at the May
court. A verdict of guilty was brought
in and he was sentenced to be hanged
June 8. The case was carried to the Su
preme Court by his attorneys, where the
verdict of the court below was affirmed.
They then appeared before the Pardon
Board to ask that his sentence he com
muted, hut in vain.
This is the second execution that has
taken place in Wilkes since the war.
though there have been sixty-one homi
Herndon was formerly a deacon In the
Baptist Church and leader of the singing,
but for some time he had been a terror to
his neighborhood. To one unacquainted
with the facts of the case it would seem
a horrible thing to hang the old, gray
headed, meek-looking man, but the de
mands of justice have been met.

BUY ONLY THE BEST GINGER ALE.
The best is the Wheeler Brand of Bel
fast Ginger Ale, made by Wheeler & Cos.,
of Belfast, Ireland, from the celebrated
Cromac Springs of that city. Tnese
springs are the property of Wheeler &
Cos., hence no other Ginger Ale manufac
turer In Ireland has those waters but
themselves. The Wheeler Ginger Ale Is
made from pure Jamaica Ginger Root and
not from Red Pepper, as others are; one
Is deleterious—the other is a tonic.
For Healthfulness end Purity the cele
brated Wheeler brand of Belfast Ginger
Ale Is the best.
