Fortune has favored one of our citizens to the amount of $1,100.  Mr. Sands, was the one who received the express package containing over a thousand dollars last Friday.  It was his pension money.  He was a Federal soldier in the late war, and comes under the head of the maimed.


Old Fannie, the beautiful dappled gray, brought to this country from Ohio sixteen years ago by Mr. W. P. Milam, died Tuesday morning last.  At the time of her death she was owned by Mr. Madison Milam.  Probably there is no animal in this part of the country better and more favorably known than old Fannie.  Since coming to this country, she has been owned the entire time by Mr. Milam’s family, and the announcement of her death is received with as much regret as if she had been a member of that family.  Our informant, who was a witness at her funeral ceremonies was unable to relate all because of the tears filling his eyes and sorrow choking his power of speech.  An old well, over which old Fannie had walked for the last ten years, had been filled up and had always been apparently safe, gave way under her weight on Monday night, and her lifeless form was discovered in its bottom on Tuesday morning.  Her death occurred in the twenty-first year of her age.  She leaves a colt one month old and a host of friends in this and surrounding countries to mourn after her.
