standing in regard to tho $5 00 rato to
New Orleans and return. In expla

the tickets to the delegates. All
members of visiting camps who will
enroll thcmsclveR as members of the
state encampment will be delegates
Irom Texas to New Orleans and en
titled to tho $5 00 rato. Call especial
attention 01 the comrades ot your
oamp to ths fact that tho rate will be
given only to those attending the

be honored only on excursion trains
under control of tho committee.

tho Manufacturers' Record, havo sold
that property to Mr. Walter H. Page,
editor of the Forum, New York;
Thomas P. Grasty, of Baltimoro, ard
Edward H Sanborn, of Philadelphia.
Tho great financial tuocess of tho Re
cord and tho work it has dono for tho
development of the South have mado it
one of tho most noted industrial jour
nals of tho country. For ten years it
.has unceasingly championed the cause
of bouihf-rn progress, and by many is
spoken of as "The South's Bible."
The Messrs. Edmonds sold out, it
is stated, in order to temporarily re
tire 'rora aotivo word and seek a well
earned rest in the South, whero they
havo large business interests. Tho
purobase price is not mado known, but,
as tho paper has been a great success,
the Bum is no doubt large. It is prob

with Southern developments. Tho

Lockwood struck Ford over tho
head with a chair and knocked him
down and as he aroso stabbed him in
tho head with a knife. Lockwood
then ran out and procuring a pistol

striking him in tho left cheek felling
him to tho floor. Lockwood then
Grcd another shot and wont out on

Policeman Hardwick hastened to
ho scene and as he approached Lock
wood was told by him ho had killed
Silas and asked not to come there
