In a Head-End Collision on the West
ern Near Hickory This Morning.
There was a head-end collision

this morningv about 2 orclock in
which Engineer T. Y. Walton was
killed and several others of the

Echoes of Yesterday's Election.
' We lost the State" remarked
one negro to another at the depot
this morning. Itwasf truly a tight
of white against black and the
i . -
whites were victorious. .
I carried Boone township by a
majority of 100" is the report M r.
Phillip Sowers, a heretofore Re
pudlican, brings from Davidson
county to the Democratic head
quarters -W hen such influential
men as Mr. Sowers come over to
the Democratic, or white man's
party, it is no wonder there was a
landslide in the State.
It can be j truthfully said that
the Populists in the county . con
tributed very little towards the
Democratic majority, but the Re
publicans in good numbers voted
the Democratic ticket helping to
raise the majority to J he number
of 1450. ' ; "
Real Circus Ariels-
. - " ''... - ,
Flying, with or yithout wings,
bas hitherto been deemed impos
sible to man; i but the worderful
and daring male and female Euro
pean, Asiatic arid American aerial--ists'
with the combined great Ad
am Forepaugh-Sells Brothers cir
cuses appear to have artistically
solved the problem. At all events,
many of their tremendous . flights
dives, leaps, evolutions, catches
and buoyant movements in mid
air seem far beyond the physical
limitations of wingless creatures.
Such a .sensational ami startling
exhibition by such a number of
great artists is without precedent
