Negro Lynched In Alabama. Florence, Ala., March 25. The negro, Cleveland Harding, who attempted to assault Mrs. Ben 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. Tied to a tree with his arms up, the negro was riddled with bullets, the first shot being fired by Rice.
