Dead Animals On Highways.
The following letter to F. H. How
ard of DeRidder, is self explanitory,
and is reproduced here because of in
quiries and complaints that have re
cently been made along this line:
Lake Charles Jan. 12, 1909.

Dear Sir:-In reply to your letter of
some time ago, asking for the law
relative to the placing of dead ani
mals on or near the public roads of
the parish, I beg to say that on March
5th, 1908, the police jury passed an
ordinance making it unlawful to place
dead animals on any public road or
highway in the-%arish, or within
forty rods thereof.
The penalty for violation of this or
dinance is a fine of not less than. 25
nor more than $100 or imprisonment
in the parish 'jail for not less than ten
days or more than thirty days, or both
at the discretion of the court.

Barn at Roanoke Supposed to Have
Been Ignited by Lightning Friday.
Roanoke, January 30.-The barn be
longing to Shoemaker and Parker of
Goshen, Indiana, burned to the ground
yesterday morning about 4:30, with all
the contents, belonging to Aaron
Longenecker, who has been leasing
the place for the past several years9

Advance On All tGrades.
Beaumont, Texas, January 30.-J.
E. Broussard, president of the Beau
mont Rice mills, says that the rice
market situation has shown a gratifi
ing improvement within the past
thirty days in both rough and clean
goods, and that the outlook for the
future is bright.
Following the weakness which char
acterized the market the opening of
the season, and the usual dullness
which obtained during the holiday
season, Mr. Broussard says there has
been a steady stiffening in the market
within the past month, Honduras rice
having advanced for the better grades
as much as 75 cents per barrel and
Japan rices as much as 40 cents per
barrel. The clean market has also
shown advances, although not quite
commensurate with the advance in
rough. Mr. Broussard thinks that
rice has recovered from its recent
slump and that further improvements
in the market can be expected.-Post.
Southern Mercantile Store Burglarized
For the second time within the past
ten days, the Southern Mercantile
company's store was broken into Sun
A week ago thieves entered through
one of the windows and appropriated
all the ready cash at hand.
Sunday night entrance was made
through a window in the flour room,
and from there into the general store,
where the thieves appropriated three
outfits of gent's furnishings complete,
from head to foot, omitting nothing
that goes into the makeup of a well
dressed gentleman. It is believed
that the crime of a week ago was com
mitted by boys of the town, but the
depredations of Sunday night was the
work of professional crooks. Three
men had teen seen about town during
the day and when the looted store was
opened in the morning, the clothing,
which it had been noticed these men
wore, was found in lieu of that taken.
Mr. Gray, the manager of the store,
is using every possible method for
the capture of the thieves.
Three men answering the description
of the suspects, went out of town on
the midnight train, riding on the tops
of the coaches.
Now is the time to sow oats.
