je. afiat to the efect that the
.!f:ices of tihe Auditor and Supt of
'ransportation of the N. 0. G. N.,
which are located in the Tate build
ing in North Bogalusa, were to be
moved to the Colonial Hotel build
ing. Several residents in North
Bogalusa became very uneasy lest
the rum')r developed into a fact.
No such a move has been con
sidered, however, according to F.
E. Farris, the general manager of
the line, who stated to the Enter
prise on his visit here this week.
Where the report originated no one
appears to know.
E. W. Seldner, who was formerly
Secretary to W. H. Sullivan, and who
for the past two years has been
Chief Clerk to J. H. Cassidy, Logging
Supt., left Wednesd y for Buffalo,
to accept a position in the office of
Walter P. Cooke, Pres., of the Great
Southern Lumber Co., and the N. O
G. N. railroad.
Mr. Seldner has proved himself
very capable and efficient in the
positions which he has held hereto
fore and he will make good in the'
lucrative position to which he has
just been appointed.
The beautiful flowers in the yards
of the G. S. L. and the home of
Mayor Sullivan are going to be
placed at the mercy of the people
of Bogalusa Sunday, due to the fact
that Sunday is Mothers Day and
that flowers cannot be secured else
where in the city. The announce
ment was made by Mr. Sullivan
that the public is not only invited
but requested to visit the G. S. L.
property and his home and select a
flower to be worn on Mothers Day.
Every man, woman and child is
invited to pluck a flower from these
beds and it is hoped that no one
will take advantage of the gene
rosity of the company and take
more than one each for each mem
ber of their family. If you cannot
go in person to make your
selection send the children, but
caution them to not take more
than is needed nor molest the
other plants as all Bogalusa is
proud of the flowers at these places.

more for our city than any other in

when his Honor, W. H. Sullivan

various natures, hearing complaints
and hard luck stories, always finds
time to take an active part in any- I

The attention of the Enterprise
has been called to the fact that
some hustling citizen can make
good money and have an indepen
dent job by collecting the waste
paper of the city and disposing of it
at the paper mill, which is pre
paring to begin operation. It is
estimated that hundreds of dollars
of paper is burned each year in
Bogalusa which would cheerfully be
given to anyone. There is always
a good demand from paper mills
for this waste. The cost of paper
bailers varies and the Enterprise
will secure the bailer for any citizen
at wholesale price. By starting
to work now much paper can be
collected and ready for sale the day
the paper mill opens. Besides
making money by the work the
main would assist greatly in keeping
Bogalusa a clean city.
