Work of an Alabama Mob. Florence, Ala. March 25. The negro Cleveland Harding, who attempted to assault Mrs. Ben F. Rice near here Friday and who was driven off by Mrs. Rice’s shepherd dog, was summarily executed Sunday by his intended victim’s husband and some 200 or 300 sympathizers. It is said every man in the crowd emptied his revolver at the prisoner.
