fHE OFFICIAL CQB1TT iOOBML FKIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1902. ABOUT TOWN. The regular" report of the First National Bank appears elsewhere in this evening's issue. The fair is going on nightl' in Matamoros, being largely attended: It will last until the end of the month. The steamer Manteo sailed from Galveston at 10:30 last night, with 50 tons of freight and ten pas sengers. Died, in this city yesterda-, at 4 p. m., Berta Barron, aged 9 months, daughter of ledro Barron, a well known Mexican merchant. The funeral takes place this after noon. In reporting the change in the Alice mail schedule yesterday, it should have been stated that the mail will be due here at 9 p. m., instead of 6, the former being the contract time. Owing to lack of previous notification, and the teams not being ready or other prepara tions made, the mail did not get in ay early as expected hist night. Last night about eight o'clock as Deputy U. S. Marshal John M. Haynes Avas about to set out in a buggy for Hidalgo, his team became unmanageable and ran away. They ran some distance before he could control them and' were running down the street near th&Bates live ry stable, when Mr. Haynes saw another buggy coming and, to avoid a collision, jerked his team to one side violently, which drew them back against the sidewalk and threw the buggy against a treturning it over. Mr. Ha'nes was thrown out and considerably bruised up, and the buggy was also damaged, the team kicking loose from it. Mr. Haynes was taken .home, but was able to be out today. He received some severe cuts on the head and face. In the railroad wreck which oc curred recently near Ballinger, Tex as, one of the injured passengers was W. H. Fulmore, the young gentleman who spent several months here and at' the Point this summer as the guest of Mrs. M. B. "Wood house and family. Mr. Fulmore's injuries did not appear to be serious, and the newspaper accounts of the accident spoke of his exertions in behalf of those who were seriously hurt, seemingly altogether unmind ful of his own injuries. He has been obliged to remain at Ballinger since, however, as it developed that he was worse hurt than he would admit at first, so it is learned. His friends and acquaintances in Brownsville earnestly hope that he may soon recover entirety from the effects of the accident. ANNUAL MEETING Of B. & G. Railway Co.

" Your booklet came to my home like a message of health when I had suffered -with headache, backache and bearing-down pains. I was weak, nervous and hysterical and had not consul! ed any doctor, thinking it would pass away in time, but instead I found that the pains increased and were mofe frequent. I de cided to try "Wine of Cardui and in a short time was much improved. It seemed to act like a charm. I kept up the treatment and the result was most satisfactory. "Words fail to ex press my gratitude for the suffering that is now saved me. I am in fine health, physically and mentally. I can only say 'thank you but there is much more in my heart for you."
