Out of Town Customers
The world renowned Hobart H. Cable Company have lately appoited
us distributors of their great Pianos for the State of Texas but in order
to secure this appointment it was necessary to place an order for 10 car
loads of their fine Pianos to be shipped at intervals of two weeks apart
to be distributed to the four corners of the State in order to introduce their
' great product throughout the State of Texas. This wonderful factory has -given
us an unusually big reduction on these first 10 cars in order that
"we may be able to siame a price which will induce more people to buy
and thereby better acquaint the people of Texas with their fine Pianos
I and also in order that we may be able to use the power of price to dispose
6i them quickly so that is why these two cars have been shipped to Am-
iirillo. That is why they must be sold in 10 days and that is why such
fine Pianos are being sold at such low prices.

in the bottom was found tho knife

There was about as much likeli-

out of the cell room as of their
sawing out of a bank vault but the
Jailor feels considerably easier with

the prisoners who handled he
knifo was one of tho men held for
the Infamous Dock ray murder. The
man had sawed the soft outer cas

was about as effect ivo as a piece
of tin would have been. Tho knife
had been passed back by the prison-
ers who escaped to tho men In the
cell rooms through a Email 1iolo In

Nothing further has been heard
from either of tho men who escaped
but facts which havo since devel
