H. SlLBERBERG. Spoke Factory. Mr. J. F. Hart, representing the Weiss & Lesh Manufactur ing Co., whose headquarters are at Muncie, Ind., spent last Fri day in the city in consultation with the officers of the Citizen's Progressive League. Mr. Hart wants to locate a spoke factory in this section of the State and is favorably impressed with Col umbus as a suitable site for such an enterprise. His company is one of the largest in the coun try, has abundant capital and asks nothing from the neonle where they locate except their good will which they already have in Columbus. He expects to return here about August 10th when he will bring a number of timber ex perts with him whose duty will be to examine the timber re sources of this section. They use hickory almost exclusively and to the end that they may be i -i . .i . . iJiaceu in toucn witn tne nickory timber of this section, The Dis patch requests all who have hickory timber, or who know where there are large tracts, to let us know or notify Mr. John A. Stinson, secretary of the league. This is one enterprise which we can secure without expending a dollar; it means a large pay roll here, quite an ad dition to our population and we must secure it. Death of Edward T. Sykes. The friends and acquaintances of Mr. E. T. Sykes. Jr. were j horrified to learn of his death by I his own hand in Mobile Friday morning. Mr. Sykes was a j young man well known here and j numbered his friends by the j score, and the news of his death fell like a cloud over them. He was a son of Gen. E. T. Sykes, of this city, and had resided here nearly all his life. For a number of years he held a responsible position in this city, but left some time ago depressed and discouraged by business revers es and it is thought that these misfortunes led to the taking of his own life. From here he went to Mobile, Ala., where he occu pied a position as book keeper for Block & Co., and was in their employ at the time of his death. Mr. Sykes was a young man of fine business ability and his untimely demise takes from the business world a man of unusual talent. While in the employ of Block & XUo. he won their respect and esteem and was considered by them one of the best book keepers they had ever had, al ways keeping his books in the best of order and balancing ac curately. Ontheday of his death beseem ed worried, going out frequently, evincing signs of mental worry. Shortly before eleven o'clock he wrote some letters. Putting on his coat he left the office and walked down the stairs to the second floor. Soon after a shot was fired and Mr. Sykes was discovered dead at the foot of the stairs. The body arrived in this city last night over the M. and O. and the funeral will be conducted from the residence this morning at 9 :30 o'clock, Rev A. J. Miller of the First Baptis church ofriciatiuer. The follow ing will act as pall bearers Messrs. Henry Humphries Leighton Lide, Chas. Hale, John Hale, Hartwell Cocke, Will Cox Chas.

Rain prevented the game Thurs day but the public was treated to a double header Friday be tween showers. Those who miss ed the first of the three games missed a treat. Pete Cox was in good trim and held the Tusca loosa boys down to three scores while eight runs were piled up to the credit of Columbus. The second game was played under difficulties, rain prevent ing a clean cut exhibition. Sand ers twirled for Tuscaloosa in a manner that made the home ooys wonder n tney vvere ever going to cross the home plate again. There is a possibility that a different tale would have been told "if" the weather bu a - . i 1 . j reau naan t ordained tnat rain should fall in the first half of the ninth inning. Higgins, for Col umbus, did good work, only two scores having been made when the game was called in favor o Tuscaloosa. Heavy hitting by the Colum bus boys was the feature of the last game. By well placed hits at the right time the home team netted eight scores, leaving Tus caloosa with only two runs. Cox and Cox was the battery for Col umbus while Sanders and Har ris were in the points for Tusca loosa. Manager Ottley intends putting his team against De mopolis in the near future on the home grounds. Mysterious Circumstances. One was pale and sallow and the other fresh and rosy.
