May 20, 1892: Arthur Burrows

Today we learn about a lynching in Texas through the pages of The Evening World (New York, N. Y.) dated May 21, 1892:

A Texas Way of Lynching.


HOUSTON, Tex., May 21.—At Midway, Madison County, last night, a mob went to the house of Arthur Burrows, who was accused of ruining a young girl of the neighborhood and shot him five times, killing him instantly.

Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
