eh, Marshal Peck had a great deal of
trouble last Friday in finding persons
who would bury Davis, the matn who
died with smallpox. It looked for a
time that he would not be able to get pe
d any one, and when he struck up
against a man who had already the Ti
disease and had made the request, the inl
first thing that be was hit with, was Ea
'-what yer guine to pay me?" Some wi
wanted as high as $5.00. It cost the dri
Pt town nearly $15.00 to have Davis tut

There are several pretty good jokes
being told on some of the hunting
party who were out deer hunting last
week. One of the crowd was put on
a stand and told not to make any noise
and to be perfectly quiet, and if there
were any deer around they would
surely cross at that particular part of
the road. Inu a few hours the party
who were following the dogs rode up,
and were very much surprised to find
their friend on the "stand" sitting by
a big log fire. It was a little too
airish for the gentleman and he bad
to build a fire to keep warm. Anoth
er of the party who was put on anoth
er stand, wasn't satisfied to risk his
luck with only one gun, so he packed
along two, and when the "followers of
who the hounds" rode up to where he was
the supposed to be, ready and wainting
orn- for Mr. Deer to cross the road so as to
ovi- bring him down with a well directed
the shot, he had both guns leauing against
opal a tree and was walking up and down
ere- the road trying to keep from freezing.

as East Carroll lady: "Mrs. L. Graham

The Police Jury has let the contract
for the erection of a steel bridge
across Tenses, this part of the work to
cost $2.925, which dose not include a
great great deal of dirt work that will
have to be done. A large amount of
money is expended every year on the
old wooden bridge, and with an iron
bridge all this kind of expense will be
done away with. In a few years
enough of money is spent in patching
up the old structure that would pay
for a first class bridge. The Police
Jury is doing the right thing.
Judge F. X. Ransdell has called a
special jury term of court, to convene
on Monday, the 4:h of March. The
term will be for two weeks, the first
week to be taken up by the grand jury
in investigating cases and prepairing
work for the petit jury, which is called
to report on the following Monday,
the 11th. This is done in this way to
expedite business, and at the same time
save the parish a great deal of expense.

The Police Jury at its meeting oq
Monday decided to readvertise for

house.

Mr. W. N. White, our progressive

Last Friday evening while Mr. Zaek
ilarding was hunting down along the
river near the old Conn house he
carne across the body of a colored
woman at the edge of the water. He
came to town immediate and notified
Justice I). W. Gilmeur, who went
down and made ani ivestigation. tie
informed us that there was nothing to
indicate that she bad been murdered,
and that he thought she had been in
the water two or three days. At tfrst
it was thought that it was "crazy Lou,"
a half demented colored woman who
has been in town for sometime, but the
colored people who saw the corpse,
said that it was not her. No one
could identify the drowned woman,
and that she was unknown to them.
She could not have floated down the
river for the reason that there is no
water running through the chute.
