Avenged by A Mob
A Negro a Woman in Alabama and is Shot to Death
Selma, Ala., Feb. 17. – Stanton, Chil-ton County, is in a state of great excitement over the murder of Mrs. Jesse Rucker and the avenging of the killing, the dead body of a negro being found riddled with bullets near the scene of the crime, while another negro is under arrest. The place where Mrs. Rucker was murdered is a lonely settlement, and there is no way of getting at the de-tails of the horrible crime.
