Houston Lax killed Ed Osburne
last Sunday about noon, near the
home of the latter on the Trammell
Trace, two miles north-east of
Pine Hill. Bad blood had existed
between the two all the fall, and
on the fatal day they met in the
lane of Osburne, and Lax struck
him with his buggy lines ana
afterward threw a blackjack stick
at him, striking him on the head
and knocking him down, from
which he died in about two hours.
Lax surrendered, and at an examin-
ing trial Monday he was held in a
bond of $2000. Both white men
have families, their ages being
about the same, thirty or thirty-

Mr. R. B. Gould has returned to
Henderson to take charge of this
station. He has been in the rail-
road business for many years, hav-
ing learned much of it here in his
boyhood days under Mr. G. W. L.
Smith. Since leaving here he has
had charge of the stations at Jewett,
Pearsall and Willis. Mr. Dotterer,
whom Mr. Gould su ceeds here
will have a good position at some
point not yet decided upon. Since
he came here, only a few months
ago, he has endeared himself to
our business men and all others
who had any business dealings
with him. He is a most competent
and obliging gentleman, and the

Two little boys, about 11 and 12
years of age, brothers, came to
Henderson yesterday morning
looking for their grand-mother,
claiming that their father and
mother are both dead. They said
their uaine is Wallace and that
they lived near Teneha, Shelby
county. They do not know the
name ot their grand-mother, but
said she lived about nine miles
from Henderson. Judge Brach-
field took them in charge for furth-
er information. Their mother died
recently, and their father was kill-
ed at a saw mill several years ago,
so they say.
Bring all the children to town

At the cotton mill meeting last
Monday a motion was made to dis-
solve the institution, which, after
a lengthy discussion, was defeated
by a yote of 35 to 7, showing a
large and healthy sentiment in fa-
vor of going ahead and building
the mill, It was shown at that
meeting that only a little oyer $50,-
000 has been subscribed, and the
necessity ot increasing the amount
to at least $75,000 was the most
apparent thing at the meeting. A
committee was appointed to go to
work at once soliciting subscrip-
tions, and to report to a meeting of
the directors, to be held the first
Monday in January. The follow-
ing are the names of the gentlemen
appointed on that committee:
H. R. Worrell, Oran Stroud,
Peter Tipps, Hugh Gaston, Geo.

mers, W. B. Harper, Jas. Fussell,

ris, F. M. Rainbolt and Fox Ta-
On motion of Hon. N. B. Mor-
ris the name of Gen. Webster

be added to the list. It is urgent
that the above named gentlemen
go to work in earnest for the suc-
cess of the mill.

It requries patience, peiseyer-
ance and untiring energy to build
a large enterprise like a cotton mill
Therefore, no man ought to des-
pair. Let the work go on. although
there may be times when even
brave men will declare the thinjr
is a failure. Let the farmers never
give up, because it will go further
to free them from the miserable
conditions that keep them bound to
commercial slavery than any start
they can make. As a rule the
merchants of the South are opposed
to any improvement that interfes
with the old system of credit and
debit. The farmers are the men
who first made the move in the
older states of the South to build
cotton mills. In the terrible crisis
that swept over the United States
a few years ago, creating a restless-
ness and uneasiness never before
experienced by our people, the
farmers of Sonth and North Caro-
lina, of Virginia, and of Georgia,
went to work in earnest to build
cotton mills to tree themselves from
the bondage ot commercial slavery,
and after a few years of many trials
ed tlie'r efforts, and to dav those
states are in the midst of unbound-
ed prosperity, and men with mon-
ey are anxious to invest in those
interprises. All great reforms
must be wrought out by the plain,
middle class, and to them The
Times, appeals to join together
with the few earnest men in this j
town for the purpose of building ■
the cotton mill.
