The Houston Post gives a table of the result
of the election in 100 counties, . which put
Jones 3G3 votes ahead of Ireland. It says
there were CI counties to hear from, and

with tools aud facilities of the most approved

including one of the finest carriage painters
to be found anywhere. Since he eame here,
he has turned out no less than ten carriages,
and orders continue to come in. He also does
general blacksmith and woodwork, and re
