Notice. Trading Stamps.
Owing to the fact that it is of
ten inconvenient to send cash
with every order I will give
trading stamps to all patrons
paying their bills from the 1st
to the 4th of each month the
same as though they paid cash
over the counter.
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. Stockard, Reese Frierson
in the hour of sorrow and
gloom which has enveloped the
Sykes home in this city the
heartfelt sympathy of countless
friends sroes out to them and in
this The Dispatch heartily joins
Another Week.
It will be noticed in this issue
that Simon Loeb & Bro. make
the announcement that they wil
continue their sacrifice sale for
iust one week longer. This sale
has been an immense success
and the firm has been requested
bv manv of its natrons to give
them another chance to take ad
vantage of reduced prices, hence
all who have not attended this
sale would do well to go to their
store this week and see if they
cannot save some money on
goods they need and must have.

fallen, the prairie farms have

Base Ball Notes.
The Tuscaloosa "Heavy Hit
ters" arrived in the citv Thurs
day for the purpose of giving
Manager Ottley's team a few les
sons in the art of playing ball.
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
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.

Don't go around with blotches on
your face, indicating a bad, sluggish
condition of your blood.
It is repulsive to your friends
and besides you can't feel just right
when your blood is out of order.
You're liable to contract some
disease, too, because germs are
more easily taken into the system
when your blood is bad.
