Thomas Hood, the English poet b
and humorist, was born May sS, R
1799, and died May 8, 1886. From n
1881 when he became subeditor of ol
the London Magasine he devoted id
himself to a literary life. In 1816 oi
Hood published Whims nd ddits
tis being followed by latioal s
Tiales in prose. There was also a
-olume of serious poetry, which,
though well reaived, dnagquinre
much popularity. In 1880 he start. B

Many Lots Were Sold At
P. Sefton Schneidau, with
headquarters in New Orleans:
and P. H. Hanaburg of Bogalusa,
sales agents for the Bogalusa
Land and Improvement Company
state that more than a hundred
building lots were sold during
Sunday to excursionists who
enjoyed the hospitality of the
agents during the delightful
outing given Sunday at Bogalusa.
In the neighborhood of 800 men
and women boarded the special
train at the Terminal Station
early Sunday morning and went
to the enterprising city of Wash
ington parish situated on the
New Orleans Great Northern and
there saw for themselves the
very great advantages offered
the homeseeker in a new locality.
So sucessful was the sales
business on the firkt day that
Messrs. Schneidau and Hans
brough decided on Monday to
give another excursion in the
near future to be followed by
others in rapid order. Their
idea is to get rid of all building
lots they now have . charge of
and to develop another section of
Bogalusa, which is situated in
the heart of the Ozone belt.
The rapid development of
Bogalusa and the enormous
amount of money invested by
the Goodyear and other interests
in that section of :Louisiana was
sufficient'to encourage visitors
to the site of the Bogalusa Land
and Improvement Company dur
ing Sunday to invest in building
lots with the view qf probable
permanent location in the vicinity
Building lots in the Bogalusa
Terrace tract are selling from
$60 up, Payments are made on
the installment plan.
