A Good Habit
'The habit of buying of Hebert & Andrus, the Southside general
mearchants, is a good habit to ogt into. They sell everything
Ls:l tly kept in a first-c .,ss general store, and on account of their
large trade they are cornstantly receiving new goods, which you will
always find-fresh and clean. Since doubling the size of their
building they ha ve received a new stock of UP-TO-DATE Dry
Goods, L .dies' and Gents' Furnishings, Shoes and Notions. Our
GROCERY and PROVISION DEPARTMENT is filled with good thing to eat.

Sabout 6:45 p.. mi. and
raged 1ntil 7:15 during which a
*vast amount of damage was done..
The wind did all the damage in a
few moments; telegraph and tele
phone poles, fences, awnings,
chimneys and signs were laid
low, the business portions suffer
ing the most.
As Rosalie Hebert and M.
Farque of Big Lake were going
along the street in front of the
Lake Charles Carriage & Imple
ment Co. Mr. Hebert came in
contract with a live wire on the
sidewalk and was instantly killed,
Mr. Farque undertook to assist
him and was also terribly shocai
ed. Mr. Hebert was a young
well-to-do-farmer of Big La.ke
and left a young wife who is
nearly crazed with grief.
A handsome bay hack team,
belonging to the Swift-Kirkwood
Co. and driven by Joe Berry
came in contact with a live wire
in front of the Press office, and
both horses were killed, but the
driver, although considerably
shocked escaped. The team was
valued at $250.
Quite a large number of logs
were blown to shore north of
Broad street from Bel's mill;
The Str. Romeo was damaged to
the extent of 850, but not disa

the stairway; Beny Thompson's
barn blew down,the entire struc
ture fell on his cow and he had to
dig her out through the roof.
She was not injured, and there
were numberless other incidents
of destruction in the same line,
all of which it is impossible to
enumerate. The current was
shut off at the power house and
the city was in darkness fr the
