The Houston Chronicle of Monday afternoon contained an account of the finding of Ed Ernst, a former citizen of Columbus, later of Eagle Lake, in an unconscious condition in his room at the Bristol hotel at Houston. He registered at the hotel Sunday night, was found unconscious the next morning, and when the paper was published was in a very precarious condition, with the chances against him. His wife at Eagle Lake was notified and she chartered a special train to go to his bedside. The cause of his condition is not stated.
