The Parker /Ially.
The Parker Rally held in the
Grand Opera House Tuesday nigh4
was the greatest, political demoni
stration ever witnessed in Shreve
port. Its significance cannot be
over-estimated. It was an evidence
of the esteem in which Jo.hn M*
Parker, independent DeIjiocraf, andt
Oandidate for glve tz r, is held in
this oom t was a proof that
thau it citizens take no seri
concern of the deliberate mis
statements of the Stubbites' press.
Indeed, the presence of the citizens
-Democrats--at this gathering was
a stinging rebuke to the slanderous
allegations directed with malicious
premeditation against Mr. Parker.
There have been held in Louisiana
political campaigns of firey aggres
siveness when the friendships of
,years have been severed owing to
differences over a candidate for
goverior, but the Stubbs' press has
gone beyond every limitation of
reason aad decency in their villian

Parker simply because he declined

Qondun.-The invention of a new
steel, far in advance of any high speed
steel hitherto made, Is ascrlbed by the
)nlly Mall to John Oliver Arnold, pro
fessor of metallurgy at Sheffield uni
versity. Professor Arnold, who is said
to have been the discoverer of vanndl
um steel, claims, according to the
Daily Mail, that the new steel pos
sesses far more commercial possibill
ties, that It Is unrivaled in hardness,
that in tool form it will remove a
greater weight than any other steel,
and that It possesses comparatively
The Daily Mall indicates that Pro
fessor Arnold uses molybdenum in
stead of tungsten, and says:
"If large quantities of molybdenum
(a hard silver white metallic ele
rnelt)-. e- be -tund and the price re
duced, tungsten will take a back seat,
because 6 per cent molybdenum will
achieve more than 18 per cent tung
LOST GOLD MINE IS FOUND
Objeot of Twenty Years' Fruitles
Search at. Last Has Been
Spokane, Wash.-The "lost" gold
mine of the upper Salmon river dis
trict of Idaho, source for years of
mysterious wealth for its original dis
coverers and cause of the death of one
of them, and the object of a 20 years'
frultless search by their "legatee," has
been rediscovered, according to a re
port reaching here.
for many years two prospectors,
lHughes and Swan, went every spring
on a mysterious journey into the hills
of central Idaho, and every fall re
turned with quantities of raw gold,
which made them the envied of every
miner to whose ears word of their
'great good fortune had come.
Then one fall Hughes fell sick, and
Swan, his partner, was waylaid and
robbed of his summer's toil in the
hidden mine and murdered. Hughes
died at length in poverty in this city.
The mine has been located, accord
ing to a report from Lewistown,
-fdiho, by two Jonson brothers of that
city. It is declared to he on a trib
utary canyon of Iamsey creekl in the
upper Salmon river district of central
'daho. The ledge proper is declared
to be from. four to six feet wide, with
S cloh streak of quarts, in which the
gold is easily visible to the naked eye,
four Ip six inches in width.

Prices of Snakes
Are Also Going Up
Boise, Idaho.-Even the price
for rattlesnakes has aviated to
keep company with the high cost
of everything else.
Idaho is one of the greatest
rattler states in the Union. The
hot, rocky sections of the state
are breeding places for thou
sands of the deadly reptiles.
A Cleveland concern which
makes a specialty of snake oil,
has written to state officials, ask
Ing for Information regarding the
crop of side-winders. The letter
was Aurned over to various offl
clals and finally the "buck" was
passed to the -state game war
den. The letter stated that the
concern was anxious to obtain a
bumper supply of serpents, be
cause the price for rattlesnake
oil has leaped to $2.50 an ounce.
DEAD WIFE AIDS HIM
Pastor Tells of Visitation From
Spouse After Death.
Gets Information That Enablee Him
to Locate Misling Doe.
Philadelph'n.-A supposed vislta
tion Trom his wife after her death,
whether in a dream or in the spirit,
related by Rev. Dr. Russell H. Con
well, is causing much speculation
among members of the Orace Baptist
Dr. Conwell, founder and president
of Temple university, related his expe
rience at a recent Sunday morning
service in the Baptist temple in which
he told of the visitation. His wife
died thirty years ago.
"I received three strange visits
from my wife," he said. "On three
successlve nights she seemed to come
and sit -on the side of the bed which
"While sitting there she gave me
valuable Information relating to sever.
at important papers which I knew
were in the house, but which I could
"It may have been a dream but I
got out of bed immediately after re
celving the Instructions and found the
papers just where she said they were."
Dr. Conwell said he did not know
what to believe about the visitation.
"It may have been thought trans
ference," he added. "I have never
been able to decide what it was, but
I do know that I was unable to locate
these papers until I received the ti
sages from my wife."
