Tho block butcher turned with uplifted ax from his bloody work, and aimed a blow at Baker, but hit aim was bad and the point of the a.x burled itself in the floor. Then followed an unequal battle between the two, the second negro appearing confident of his confederate's success or dazed at the spectacle before him and oot interfering. Baker, crazed with the horror of tho crimes he had been nnable to prevent, attacked the negro . Thompson with the ferocity of a tiger. He tried to secure tho ax, but Thompson was too quick, and they both laid hold of it at the samo instant Both strained for tho possession of tho weapon and in their fury they rolled and tumbled about in the rivers of blood that ran from tho body of the murdered wlfo and that of the baby, which had fallen to the floor.
