Two negroes, Robert Gully and John Holly, Sunday night entered the home of a man named Gray. Mrs. Gray was awakened and when she failed to heed the order to stop screaming was shot by Gully. Gray brained the negro with an axe, but not before Gully had shot him in the leg. Holly was captured this morning and made quick work of by a posse of Gray’s neighbors.
