PARIS, Jan. ll.—Early returns from German elections are interpret- ■ ed here to signify a promising prospect for the establishment of a stable German administration at an early date. Majority socialists and German democrats who are successors ot the old radical party, apparently will go into the constituent assembly with a big lead over the Independent socialists. Fried erie h Von Payer, former vice chancellor and leader of the democrats, and socialist leaders Ebert and So hied em ann, demonstrated
their ability to work together and | they count on Konstantin Fehren-! bach. Centrist leader, as an ally in effort? to institute a government with the basis of popular support.

Sergt. Zoe Stegall, son ot W H. Stegall and wife, has arrived from Fiance with his honorable discharge and a soldierly record of which he may well be proud. However, the young man speaks modestly ot his service and. as is usual with those who have served best, does not boast of his deeds.
Ile was a member of Co. M, 141st infantry. 36th division and was discharged because of his wounds. He was on the steamer Northern Pacific which went ashore at F'ire Island, off New York. and in great flanger until rescued.
The young man landed iii F’ranee In June and soon afterwards was sent to tile front and was wounded live times while on the I hampague sector. One hand is permanently disabled from a machine gun bullet. He was wounded Oct. 14 and in the hospital two months.
He has some interesting souvenirs j taken on the battlefield. One is a ! cigarette lighter. A German officer, who had stolen it in Fiance, was in ja shell hole on the front and when * he exposed his position by lighting a cigarette young Stegall got him. He also has an ugly knife with which the Hun soldiers were provided. They carried these In their boot tops and in close quarters stabbed their enemies. He was slightly wounded by a German with one of these knives, but i the Hun n^ver needed a knife after j that. He knows of at least eight that he sent to their reward.
He says the best snipers the Germans had were women who wore the regulation uniform. He says a wo-' man has keener eyes than a man,
1 hence these women did deadly work with nvachine guns posted in trees ! and other concealed points.
He speaks in the highest terms of the Red Cross "They were mothers to us.” he says. He was picked up by the Red Cross after lying two days and nights wounded on the field.
Gen. Pershing is the young man’s ideal hero. He says the general was not afraid of anything and he hap seen him in the front lines when the battle was heaviest, walking unconcernedly along twirling his cane, and seemed tp bear a charmed life for j no bullet ever found him.
The young soldier wears five wound stripes on his arm and a star j on the shoulder indicating consplc-I HOU bravery in action.
HILLSBORO, Texas. Jan. 21 Bragg Williams, negro, who confessed to the murder of Mrs. George Wells and her little son at their home near Itasca, Dec. 2, was taken from Jail here at I o’clock this afternoon and burned to death on the public square. Frillier in th** day he had been sentenced to be hanged on February 21. He was convicted! ast
Williams, who had been in jail in Dallas for safekeeping* was brought to Hillsboro this morning to receive sentence, which was passed by Judge Horton Porter of the District court Williams was then taken to the county jail. ..
Attorneys Walter Collins and A. M. Frazier, who were appointed to defend Williams, served under protest. The defense moved for a new trial and. .on this being refused, gave no-
tiie of appeal.
Shortly after noon a crowd went to the jail and demanded that WiD Hams be turned over to them. The demand was refused. The outer door of th** jail was broken with a sledge hammer and preparations were made to batter down the cell door, but someone in the crowd secured possession of the cell keys by overpowering a guard. The negro was brought out and led to the public square. Williams was chained to the concrete ‘•safety first” post on the square. Hay, wood and coal were piled about him and over the mass was ponied several gallons of coal oil. Then a match was applied. Williams lived but a few minutes in the flames, probably not more than five. He is said to have made no outcry at his fate other than to say ‘‘Help me. Cap, ,
three times. , ^ A .
i At the jail Williams is said to have admitted the double killing, but to have denied outraging his victim.
While a great many persons Sered around the burning negro, business was not suspended and there was very little excitement
