BASTROP, La., Dec. 27. There was an air of expectancy here and at Mer Rouge today an department of justice agents and representatives of the 'state government renewed their investigation of the Morehouse parish kidnappings. They widened their efforts to run down the iersons responsible for the dynamit ing of a nearby lake wiheh gave up the bodies of two men identified as Watt Daniels and Thomas Richards, abducted by a masked mob last August. : It was declared additional arrests were imminent. Secret service, have discovered dynamite, said men were reported "to the place where the to have been 1,500 luiids, was sold, and some of the men suspected of being implicated in the dynamiting were under surveillance. The arrest in Baltimore yesterday of Dr. B. M. McKoiu, former mayor of Mer Rouge, at the request of Governor John M. -Parker, caused considerable excite ment here. Morehouse parish and the town of Batrop which are in the limelight be cause of the kiduapping and killing of Daniels and Richards have an interest ing story. According to a looklet published a few years ago by a resident of Mer Rouge the town and parish gut their Jiam-s from a Kentuckian and a Spanish nobleman. In 1NU, when Spain owned what is now the state of Louisiana, a Spaniard, Baron De Bastrop, was said to have ob tained from Spain a contract to the ef fect that when he had induced GOO fam ilies to settle in the country "lying north and east of the Ouachita river he would acquire ownership of 12 Jeagues of land, or about 1 ,000,000 acres, for his service. To help in the fulfillment of this con tract, Baron De Bastrop is credited with having enlisted the services of Abraham Morehouse, a Kentuckian. In turn Mr. Morehouse is said to have arranged with Captain xJjsiah Davenport, a native of Rhode Island, to assist him in the colonization -work. Settlers were brought from other sec tions of the United States to develop the country. The parish was created by an act of the legislature in 1S41 and shortly thereafter the parish seat was established at two cross roads. It was decided to name the parish "Morehouse" in honor of Abraham Morehouse, while the parish seat was named Ba-trop'' in honor of Baron De Batror. ' ' , To Arraign K-Mayor. RALTI M )RE, Md..

Black in the apartment of Mrs. Olive L. Jones, divorcee, had been in creased today by, facts uncovered by ik lioe department investigators.

Dee. 27 Twenty two members of the Appalachian club, mostly from Boston and vicinity, half of whom are of the fair sex, arrived at the Battenkill Inn last evening for a winter outing of one week. It is but a few min utes' walk from the hotel to the woods of; 'the Green mountain range and not more than three miles to the long trail. Weather conditions are unfavorable as it has been thawing constantly for two days and the snow is thin and sloppy in the valley. There is, however, between one and two feet of snow iu the! woods. Afraid He Couldn't Qualify. Onr in Texas the short cotton crop forced a large number of country ne groes to the cities. One of tn-.se ap plied for a job at one of the inre em ployment agencies.

Freight on This Exceeds Cost of Refor esting 5,500,000 Acres Denuded Land Forester Ilawes of Connecticut Says There Is More Waste Land Than Ever BOSTON. I)c. 27. Based upon pres ent stands and rate of growth and pres ent rate of depletion, the forests of New England Avill be cut in a period of 32 years, R. C. Bryant, professor of lum bering at Yale school of forestry, s-.iid in an address today before the New Eng land Forestry congress here. Reforesi ration or loss of her wood industries were the alternatives" facing New Eng land he said. "Can New England afford to 'freeze cut' of its midst industries the value of whose manufactured products annually aggregates nearly one ,billioW dollars, whose capital investment is $300,000, 000 or more and which give employment to nearly 100.000 people?" he asked. "AVe have in New England a per capita forest area of 3.7 acres, which is greater than that of any of the European countries except Finland, Russia. Nor way and Sweden. On this land we are producing per acre less than 40 board feet, of saw timber, while to make our forests meet our needs for saw timber it will be necessary to produce about 10O board feet per acre annually. This will require a heavy investment, but we are already making a greater one in transmutation, for todav we import nearly 3,000.000.000 board feet from the South and Far West. New England is today annually inventing iu trunqorta tion to bring in her deficit of lumber at least $7.000.0H. a sum which would re forest the G.r lO.txtO acres of denuded land in her borders within a period of lti years. Speaking on New England Forests in Retrospect Austin F. Ilawes, state forester of Connecticut, said: "In the course of the three centuries that have passed (since 102OI, the virgin forests has leen reduced from KG per rent to G per cent of the total area of New England. Most of the area has been either severely "culled, or has been cut clean and is now covered with im mature second growth. Never in the history of New England has there been as much waste land as at present, and never has there been so great a need for the systematic raising of timber." GREAT REDUCTION IN USE OF OATS Expert Figures That Use of Motor Cars " Cuts Farmers' Income' ' $30,000,000. CHICAGO. Dec. 27. American farm ers are losing approximately $30,000.1 K.H) a year on their oats crop and probably like amount, on their Jiay crops through the use of automobiles.-, motor trucks ami tractors which have largely supplanted the nse of horses in he cities, according to RolMTt McDougal. president of the Chicago board of trade in analyzing tiie effect of motorized hauling on the horse and grain market. Mr. McDougal be lieves, tiowcici-, t.." pendulum is swing ing the other way., pointing out that the pnoos on go I tualt horses are advanc ing. . "In miO. there were 3,r,(K),000 horses in the cities," said Mr. McDougal. "while in 1!20 there was a trifle more than half that number. Most city horses are fed upon oats and hay. Oats prices recently averaged GG cents below wheat prices, whereas before we began ustng gasoline 4 hey averaged 02 cents below wheat. This is a loss of three cents per bushel, which based upon an average crop of one bil lion bushels nets the farmer n tidy loss. "There is no doubt the big power trac tor has reached the saturation point. In many farming sections high-powered trac tors were bought by small size farmers. It was a disastrous venture for many. In the cities, many businesses turned their backs upon the horse for short hauls with frequent stops. Today the fanner is feed ing a yard of colts and the horse' is coin ing into his own for short hauls. "The horse will never come back to his old place in the city, but he 'is going to be sure of an important place in moving several varieties of commodities."
