Horrible Death.

On last Wednesday about six o’clock Mr. James Childers, who lived in Jerusalem district, Pickens county, was on his way home from his work at Jones’ mill, came to a most horrible death. He left the mill alone, riding his mule, and about two hours afterwards the mule returned to the mill. The suspicions of his friends were aroused and search was immediately instituted for him. They found his body in the creek about two miles from the mill, with a very large gash cut in his head. It is surmised that the mule threw him into the creek, striking his head on a rock, causing instant death. The deceased was a good, clever, hard-working man and his death is regretted by many.
