On receiv es the information 'that his son, H. G. Terry, had been killed In battle on April 16th. The deal by which Her- zot one oi tne most vaiuea men in the National League, was acquired by the Braves is a rather intricate one and there are several angles that have sta yer to be straightened out before any definite announcement can be made. !

Plans are being made for the grad ing of the unfinished portion of the National Highway through Crystat Springs, connecting the road from Dade City and the north with the road from Plant City, Tampa and th south.

The Macrenaris Shlp- building Company, of that city, has to the local applied for a charter, and shortly ex pects to lay keel for the first shin. the New York club in exchange for Player Herzog and another outfielder to be named by the Boston club on March 20th. Herzog has what is known in baseball parlance as an Ironclad contract with the Giants calling for an $11,000 salary and hav ing another year to run. By the terms of that contract Herzog cannot be 9oId by the Giants to any club with out his consent, and the deal was made subject to Herzog's acceptance of the transfer.

Nevertheless Manager George T Stallings was pleased to see Her zof, and the two spent the day to gether, although not getting down to business. Manager Stallings explained conditions to Herzog and told him that at present he did not care to go into the matter of a bonus. More than that President P. D. Haughton of the Braves is due to arrive in Miami this morning from the north and he nat urally would be on hand when any conference would take place. The man who led the Giants Into the pennant in the National League last year said he was feeling fine, but he did not look any too rugged as he sat upon the veranda of the Urmey last night. It will be recalled that he met with an accident during last season that caused him to remain out of baseball for some time.
