-DEATH OF H. A. FAIRBANKS-

A telegram was received, yesterday morning, by Alonzo Fairbanks, of this city, bearing the sad news of the death of his brother, Henry A., at Fergus Falls, Monday evening, of inflammatory rheumatism, and that the remains would be brought to Austin for interment. Henry A. Fairbanks came to Austin about fifteen years ago, and has resided here during that time, with the exception of the past two or three years, when he has been in the hotel business at Wells and Fergus Falls. He served his country in the late war in the Army of the Potomac, going out from Vermont, his native State. His age was 50 years. Oakwood Cemetery in this city contains the remains of his five children--three by his first wife and two by his second; the [second] wife alone survives him. Mr. Fairbanks had many good qualities, chief among them kindliness and generosity. He was a member of the Odd Fellows lodge of this city, and will probably be buried by that Order, and by the McIntyre Post, No. 66, G.A.R., of which he was also a member. Funeral today at the Armory, at 3 p.m.
