ACCUSED OF BEATING
HISWIFE TO B[ATH
HIarry Irolich (f Man(deville
.\ wail tinjg Trial On
Covington, La, Sept. 4.-Charged
by a specialy called coroner's jury,
with the murder of his 20-year-old
wife, the mother of a 4-weeks-old
baby, Harry Frosch of Mandeville
has been placed in the St Tammany
parish jail here to await trial.
It is alleged that Frosch kicked
and beat his young wife to death.
On last Tuesday, Dr. Paine, of this
place, was called to the Frosch
home to attend Mrs. Frosch for in
ternal injuries. Dr. Paine attended
the young mother upon the birth of
her child and during that time he
heard of alleged cruel treatment of
Mrs. Frosch by her husband. Recall
ing this he investigated and learned,
it is alleged, that Monday Frosch I
had again unmercifully beaten her. I
Thursday Mrs. Frosch died from
peritonitis. Dr. Paine refused to
issue a death certificate and Coroner
Heintz was called on the case. The
coroners' jury was summoned and
held an investigation Friday after
noon. The arrest of Frosch followed.
The trial of Frosch will come up
at the October term of court. The
coroner's jury that preferred the
charge against Frosch was com
posed of Lucas Prieto. George Glock
ner, J. N. Miller, E. H. Haudot and
R. R. Peirson.
BIG GET TIOGATER DINNERS
TO BE STARTED ON SUNDAY
Another steD towards a greater
and better Botalusa, and one which
also will result in the citizens be
coming better acquainted with each
other, was launched Tuesday when
it was suggested that a series of
dinners will be held at the Pine Tree
Inn, the first one to be held next
Sunday. And the men are not
going to be the whole thing because
each man is expected to bring his
wife, mother or sister and the ladies
will be asked to suggest things to
wards a greater and better Bogalusa.
" Arrangments were made to have a
Ilarge banquet table placed in the
dinning room and a rate of 50 cts.
per plate was given by Mr. Saux.
Within less than 30 minutes after
the move was launched it received
the co-operation of enough citizens
to assure a big success. If a mem
her of the committee has not called
to invite you to attend this event
you can phone A. N. Dobbs, The
Pine Tree Inn or the Enterprise and
Sreservations will be made for you.
Owing to the fact that it will be
necessary to know the exact num
ber who will attend, you should ad
vise any of the above at the earliest
can accomplish by united effort.
The women of Bogalusa are construc
tive and progressive. This will be the
ony city in the State of Lonisana
outside of New Orleans that will
have a Juvenile Court, and it is due
t to the untiring efforts of the moth
ers of Bogalusa that this splendid
s result has been brought about.
This doesn't mean that we are
going tosendany of our boys to
,a reformatory, but it simply means
that there is now an organization in
Sthe city of Bogalusa that will extend
Shelp to delinquent boys and try to
make of all boys in Bogalusa good
f men and eitizeas.
The women of Bogalusa are doing
asmuchas ifnot more than, the
Smen to put Bogalusa on the map as
Sa progressive city.
JUDGE OF OUR NEW COURT
Hon. J. B. Lancaster, who will preside over Bogalusa's Juvenile
Court, which will be the second one in the state. Much credit is due
Mr. Lancaster in securing this need for Bogalusa. He will serve without
pay. which is further evidence that he is a friend of the Magic City.

PARENTS ASKEO TO CO-OPRATE WITH OFFICIALS
TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS TO SCHOOL CiILOREHI
Unless the school children cease
to pass through the shop yards and
the lumber yards at Fourth street
and stop playing underneath the
lumber docks of the Great South
ern Lumber Co., an accident is al
most certain to occur which may
result in death or injuring some
child for life. is the opinion of H. H.
Wilcox, Commissioner of Public
"My attention has been called to
these facts "said Mr. Wilcox" and I
am going to try and adopt some
method whereby the children will
not take such risks and if the par
ents of these children would try
and co-operate with me and the,
other officials I believe that these
risks can all be avoided. The dan
ger in the railroad yards can be
eliminated by the school children
using the new street to the north of
the N. 0.G G N. property and child
ren should be prohibited from play.

increased $25,000 more.
The question of when taxes will

resolution was introduced to make

Johnson was not satisfied that the

when the discussion of taking pro
perty of Pink Richardson and others
into the city limits. Mr. Richardson
contended that a notorious near
beer, place was tbeing operat
ed so close to his home that he was
anxious to have police protection.
The owner of the place was present
and objected to the city limits in
cluding his property. All features
of the proposition were discussed
and rediscussed and it was decided
that the matter would be brought
before a mass meeting in the near
future and whatever the citizens
thought was best the council would
There was much route business
that was laved over until the next
1ing in the yards of the lumber
company. Think of some fine little
fellow being mangled under cars
just to save a few minutes. I wish
that the parents of the children
would caution them not to pass
through the yards and .prohibit
their playing in the lumber vards.
They would be doing the children,
themselves and the city officials a
great favor and avert accidents of
this nature if they will assist .us."

Johnson made the opening remarks 1i
and introduced Mr. O'Kelly, of s
O'Kelly & Walker, who accompanied
his stock, and who gave a talk about a
the noble ancestry of the herd. Mr. t
Porter, the Official Auctioneer of
the day was then introduced and
the sale started. Bidding was a
little slow at first but gained mo
mentum as the sale progressed and a
bidding was lively. In less than c
two hours the entire herd was auc
tioned off to buyers from a radius
of 25 miles from Bogalusa at a

Immediately following the sale

Ex-Governor, Jared Y. Sanders, I
delivered a very interesting and
able address along agricultural lines.
Mr. Sullivan stated at the close
of the speaking that on September

Stock Farm" at Isabel, La., of which
he is President, to take dinner and

After the sale Mr. O'Kelly stated
that while his herd did not bring as
much money as blooded hogs would
bring at the larger sales, still he
understood that this was our first
Ssale and that few of our people
Srealized the value of blooded stock.
He was well satisfied with the re
suit of the sale and felt that owing
to the fact that he had brought our
people a splendid lot of the right

had received would bear fruit for
the good of his firm in days to

BOGCALUSA APPLIES THE
WHITE WASH BRUSH
Beats Franklinton In Fast
Game Ily The Score Of
Six To. Nothing
The Franklinton Base-Ball team
strengthened by a New Orleans bat
tery, went down to defeat before the
local team Saturday by the one
sided score of six to nothing. Lusk
was on the mound for Bogalusa, and :
held his opponents safe throughout
the game. Only once or twice did
the visitors threaten to score, but
with men on bases he tightened up,
and the needed hit to score the
runners was not forthcoming. In
the fifth inning Lusk made a record
that will stand for some time to
come, and something for the big
leagues to aim at. He .retired the
side in that inning on three pitched. ,
balls. The feature of the game was
a home run by Boyd, which cleared
the left field fence by about twenty
feet. The game was played in an,
hour and forty minutes.
The Norfield team, heralded as'
one of the strongest in thi· section,
came Sunday, and also was defeated.
The game was devoid of any feat
ures. and was decided by the score
of eleven to five, with Bogalusa ion
the long end.
The local team has been winning
so consistently, that it' has almost
developed into a habit.
