On Sunda>, .luly 2. Mrs. Annie Nlar
garet Anderson, the wife of our well
known townsman, Mr. i. L. Anderson. ,
died quite suddenly at her home in
Bouny street, after an illness of only
a few hours, at the age of 52 years. :
Mrs. Anderson was a native of St.
Iluis, Mo., but she has been a resident
of Algiers since her early childhood,
her maiden name being Annie M. Blan
schard, and during a lifetime of excep
tional usefulness and unselfish devo
tion to her family and friends she had
endeared herself to.a very large num
ber of friend acquaintances, and
was regarded by all who knew her as
an example of the very highest type of
true womanhood.
Among her relatives are several
prominent families in Algiers and New
Orleans anad there are many other fam
ilies who, while not kinfolks, have re
ceived innumerable acts of kindness at
her hands, and have had for her such
affectionate regard and admiring es
teem that it may be said of them that
they have lost one of their best loved
There survive to mourn her loss, her
husband, Mr. Bernard L. Anderson, one
son, Robert B. Anderson, two daugh
ters, Mrs. H. J. Thompson and Miss
Maud V. Anderson, and one grand
Schild, Marion H. Thompson. To these
e and others less closely connected, is
f extended the sympathy and condolence
Sof a large circle of friends in their
t great and irreparable loss.

Unofficial information was received
here yesterday that the shops of the
Texas & Pacific lines at Gouldsboro
would be moved within a short time toI
Addis, a town formerly known as Ba
t ton Rouge Junction, just across the
river from the State capital. It Is
stated that the plans contemplated em
brace the appropriation of more than
S$250,000 for the erection of a set of
Sbuildings which will serve as machine
shops not only for the Gouldsboro

lines of the Texas & Pacfie'as well.
The shops will have a capacity for
Shandling and repairing all of the en
Sgines and other equipment which are
or in use on the Louisiana division. They
will give employment to fully 2,500
men, according to the plans outlined,
and will be modern in every particu
The proposition to remove the shops
from Gouldsboro and to replace them
with enlarged divisional shops at Addis
is said to be one of those on which the
directors of the Texas & Pacific had
-been working for months before the
n new management came into power.
For lack of financial support in New
York, it was impossible to consummate

have been taken to carry out the plans,
of it is said. A turntable and a twenty
