OVER THE STATE
A dispatch from Birmingham says Ed. Shadrack, ex-convict of Barbour, has sued Comer & McCurdy, convict contractors, for $18,000 damages for keeping him employed at hard labor 18 months over his time.
Mr. J. T. Floyd, of Eufaula, has three children, all of which were born on the 17th of November, there being two and three years’ difference in the ages of each. Mr. Floyd is in luck; he won’t have to have but one birth day celebration a year.
