At < th.* northeaat corner of Bonhain'ajQd Eighteenth streets is a building that for years housed a saloon when saloons a: ere ed in Lamar county. 'When I came to Paris there was a. large frame house on that corner, and the ground north of it was Lane's wagon , yard- place much fre- Quented by people from the country when they had to spend the night in town waiting for the cotton market to open next morning- Some years later the old house was torn down and brick houses took its place and hav* been there ever since, that blocK being one not destroyed by the fire of 191$. Forty-odd years ago there was a saloon In the corner room and it remained there, under various ownerships, until saloons were banned by the adoption of prohibition la the county about 1905. The saloon was there in 1S93 when the negro Henry Smith was burned at a stake' on the prairie south of Paris by the outraged citizens for criminal assault and murder or a child. Some one raking the j ashfs of that funeral pyre found j the negro's heart. TVhlch was " shriveled by the heat bat not consumed, and it. -with some scraps of bones, was placed on exhibition in this saloon and was there viewed by those moved by curiosity for such things. One day a smooth - talking to th* plan and th* stranger took th* relic* ostensibly to be photographed, but n*v*m- ±i2rn&3, a&d th* supposition xas that he had carried them off to exhibit elsewhere and pexhap* make some money for himself.

It was probably on » par Trith the working of the public that was done by some alert negroes soon after th* affair. There came to Paris from time to time reports of a negro man so- eceiving money at T*.places. he having stated that he was !n Parts at the tlm* of the execution and that having expressed disapprobation of the affair he htm-self narrowly escaped iynchinjc xnd was compelled to flee from Paris and leave behind everything he had. No such occurrence ever took place, but th* felloes who worked the racket stranger saw the relic and suggested to the proprietor of the saloon that he could make some ^ere far enough away to get TT by having it photographed | Pathy and money from people who selling the prints, especially | Sid not know the truth of th* and through the north wher*s much Inditraation had been expressed because the people of Paris did not wait for the courts to act in Smith's case.
