Mr. Byars Soliciting Aid to Pay Off the Indebt edness of the Blount State Agri cultural College. Mr. T. M. Byars of Blountsville Is In the city and will devote a week to per sonal solicitation for funds to pay oft the debt of $1000 of the Blountsville new school building. It will be remembered that on the 5th of last January the old building was consumed by fire, and in its stead has been erected a handsome new structure, and Is now known as the Blount County Agricultural School and Experimental station, fostered by the state. In this school any boy or girl In the state can receive a liberal education free of tuition. But to secure this school the people of Blountsville and the Ninth Congressional district were required to erect a school building and donate It to the state, with forty acres of land for a station. This has been done. A mag nificent building, 65x105 feet, two stories high, is now completed and will be turned over to the state as soon as the board of control receives tt from the contractor. The people of Blountsville and vicin ity have paid for this building with the exception of about $1000. This amount is to be raised and the people of Blounts vilie are asking the people of the Ninth district to help them raise this amount. This is no private enterprise, but be longs to every man in the state, and as such deserves to be fostered by them. As Mr. Byars very reasonably puts tt: Jefferson county should feel sufficiently interested to give the whole sum, as her children are to be as much entitled to the benefits of the institution as those of Rlount. Mr. Byars will put the prop osition In its true light to citizens of Birmingham and Jefferson county and will no doubt succeed in raising a large sum for the cause of so much interest to the district.

At Seals' hall next Thursday evening, December 5, the Schubert male quartette of Chicago, 111., assisted by Miss Read, a reader of rare merit, and Miss Hughes, a phenomenal harpist, will appear before the taste and culture of Birmingham In a select melange of vocal, elocution and instrumental specialties. The quartette has a national reputation. Of them the Louisville Courier-Journal says: A fine concert was given last evening by the' Schubert male quartette. The numbers were given without any Instru mental accompaniment, and the effect was a positive artistic revelation. The programme was a popular one, but con tained several numbers that fully tested the artistic powers of the singers. Of Miss Reade the following is suffi cient high commendation: Chicago, June 21, 1894. My Dear Mr. Iott: Miss Grace M. Reade, the young lady the quartette have chosen as their recitationist for this sea son, Is a pleasing, gifted and intelligent young artist. I am quite sure she will be a source of great pleasure to your many patrons and friends throughout the country, and a credit to herself and her teachers. Yours sincerely, R. L. CUMNOCK. Speaking of Miss Hughes, the Chicago Evening World succinctly states: Last Tuesday evening Miss Maude Hughes gave a. brilliant harp concert. It was one of the most notable harp perform ances ever given in the west. In a word, the attraction Is first-class and entertaining. At Seals’ hall next Tuesday evening. The price of tickets will be 50 cents. ARE YOU ALIVE ?

Silent he watched them, the soldier and dog, The toys on the little arm-chair; Keeping their tiyat through the slow-going years For the hand that stationed them there. And lie said that perchance the dust and the rust Hid the griefs that the toy friends knew; And his heart watched with them all the dark years. Yearning ever for Little Boy Blue. Three mourners they were for Little Boy Blue— There ere the cold winds had begun; Now two are left watching—the soldier and dog;. But for him the vigil is done. For him, too. the Angel has chanted a song, A song that is lulling and true lit has* seen the white gates of the Man sions of Rest Thrown wide by his Little Boy Blue. God sent not the Angel of Death for his soul— Not the Reaper that cometh for all; But out of tlie shadows that curtained the day He heard his lost Jit lie one call; Heard tlie voice that ho loved, and fol lowing fast Passed on to the far-away Strand Arid he walks the streets of the City of Pen re With Little Boy Blue by the hand! —Para Beaumont Kennedy In Memphis Scimitar.__ wzn itig- up our recent licit your vis; .o MORROW & SHOOTS HIS PRISONER. Mack Crawford, Colored, Attempts to Escape From the Officer and Is Shot—Wounds n A* Not Serious. Mack Crawford, colored, was shot In the breast and arm yesterday afternoon by Special Officer Sharp of Woodward. The officer and his prisoner were en route to the county Jail on the Bessemer dummy, when Crawford jumped from the train and ran. It is said that he was making good headway towards his es cape, notwithstanding the fact that his wrists were looked together with hand cuffs. Officer Sharp ran after the fugi tive and called on him to halt. The ne gro turned toward the officer, but started,' to run again, It is said, when Officer Sharp fired. One of the balls struck the negro Just over the heart and ranged along the breast. Inflicting a painful fleshf wound. The other shot passed through, the fleshy part of the negro's right fore-1' arm without striking the bone. Crawford yesterday afternoon told a State Herald reporter, while Dr. Cotton was dressing his wound, that he and an other negro went into the commissary at Woodward, and that he took a bolt of cloth from the counter and tried to get away with It, when he was intercepted by the clerk. A few minutes later Officer Sharp put the handcuffs on him and was bringing him to the city, when he jumped from the train, he says, near Smithfleld, and tried to escape. He says he intended to halt, but when he saw the pistol in the hands of the officer he was fright ened and ran again. His wounds are not dangerous.
