Now these goods must go at a sacrifice, as we made up our mind to sell goods at the beginning of this season at the lowest possi ble figures, as we don't know what kind of a sea son is before us.

Jackson, Miss., April 20. y. 1 . rrteman cieu at r.is rooms in this city this afternoon at five o'clock from hemorrhage of the lungs. I Ins announcement will carry intense sorrow to his thous ands of friends throughout Missis sippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee, in all of which States he was well known, He has been in ill health for several months but had recovered sufficiently to lie on the streets yesterday and while he was not strong his friends hoped he was on the road to recovery. He was born in Holly Springs, M iss., about forty-four years ago. He was the eldest son of the late G. Y. Freeman, a prominent citi zen ol Holly Springs, and was a nephew of United States Senator, E. C. Walthal. Gen. Freeman was prominent politically and socially and stood high in Masonic circles, being past junior grand warden and past dep uty grand master of the grand lodge of Mississippi. In 1883 he married Miss Kosa Belle, daughter of Rev. Dr. John Hunter, pastor of the Presbyterian church here, who died some years since, leaving a son. Gen. Free man was noted for his genial and elegant manners. No man stood higher or had more friends. For the last several years lie has been the representative through out this section and Arkansas of Richardson & May of New Orleans. He was forced some years ago, owing to ill health, to give up the practice of law, in which profession he had attained high standing. He died surrounded by members of his family and numerous friends iirthis city. He will be interred in the City Cemetery here beside his wife. Mr. Edwin Montgomery, in the Live Stock Journal, says: "The other day we were riding along the road and passing by where a lately arrived immigrant from Minnesota was plowing breaking land we dismounted to inspect the work and to have a few words with the plowman. He was apparently a modest man, young and strong. He had a large pair of half Norman horses attached to a 14-inch plow which the tenm pulled with ease without any strain whatover, He said that in Minnesota he rarely used a plow so Email, usually one that cut an 18-inch furrow. With this 14-inch plow he said he could easily average two or two and one quarter acres per day, of land plowed day after day. Sometimes he plows as much as three acres. His plow was heavy, strong and did good work. The furrows were turned up on end, or up against each other; n?t turned over Hal as is usual with the general clay ot plows used on our Southern farms. Of course it is better that the slices oi dirt and sodue turned on end than Hat or reversed. Letter eondi tion for the harrow and the soil better prepared for the crops to be sown. His plow was too heavy to lift around (at the corners) by main physical strength, but while the team was still in motion, he could eisily give the plow a little jerk which would cause it to shoot out and over the ground and land about where he wanted it to. This Northern man told us that many of his neighbors who had witness ed his plow told him that such an implement as he had was utterly unadapted to our Southern soils and purposes, and advised him to substitute for it ono that cut a much narrower furrow. We told him to go ahead and pay no atten tion to such criticisms and advice he was making no mistake that it was just such plowB and teams that our farmers here should use themselves to secure the best le eults in farming. I told him that these half impoverished and badly washed lands all around us here in this Southern country were more the natural result of using little one-horse scratch plows than anything else. And we told him the truth." From New York comes the alarming intelligence that Kussell Sage has the grip. Probably he has it on a lot of bonds. 19 mi! ImhNS liUUilo lor Which is now complete. See our line of Crepon Dress Goods.

Here is our plan: Our agent is ever on the lookout for firms that are on the verge of bankruptcy a vl ruin. and. with cash in hand to buy the whole lot at less than its value. We then give the people th- b -ne'it o; y.-rv low prices.
