AT Oregon, Oldham County, Ky., a school teacher named Weston detained three of his pupils, little girls 7, 8, and 9 years of age, after the other scholars had left. When the room was cleared he locked the door and outraged the three children. He was caught, stripped naked, tied to a tree and given 100 lashes. He was then given five minutes to leave the country. The little girls are in a precarious condition.
