The M. B.
Lumber Yard
Every householder will appreciate the con
venience of this new departure in department
store service. \\c have organized a Lumber
Department in which are stocked short
,engths of lumber for household purposes.
The next time you want to put up a shelf, or
make a flower box, a table or a book case, or
any of the thousand and one household arti
cles that can conveniently be made at home,
just phone us, and we will deliver lumber of
the right length for your purpose. No more
trips to the sawmill are necessary, you can
find the lumber right on our third floor for all
borne purposes and all the tools you need are
right beside it. The prices are too small to
talk about.

OF $13,600
Following several important clues
Monday morning, the police expect
soon to make arrests in connection
with the theft of $13,600 from a
safe in the residence of Frank Daly.
aged 54, of 231 Atlantic avenue, 3
some time during Saturday night or
early Sunday morning. a
Daly. retired from active business c
life. inherited the money on the
death of his mother some time ago.
and according to his own admission, r
had the money in an old iron safe in I
a room adjoining his bedroom where- a
he lived alone, and that the safe
door was never locked because he f
did not know the combination. The
thief therefore found no difficulty r
in getting the money once he had
forced an entrance.
What the police are puzzled over,
however, is the fact that in gaining v
an entrance, the burglar was com
pelled to force open two doors. That e
Daly was not aroused from his slum- a
bers is considered remarkable, since a
in forcing the two doors, the robber n
had to throw his weight against each n
with sufficient force to bend the h
bolts. d
Daly insists, however, that the v
money was in the safe when he re
tired Saturday night at 10 o'clock, a
and that it was gone when he looked d
for it Sunday morning. ti
Daly said the money was in de
nominations of $10 and $20 bills.
According to Sidney Boyer, street
car conduator, he was bumping mer
- rily along on the rear platform of
ry his car Sunday night when trouble in
at the shape of Jack Smith, negro,
og bounded on to the car platform be
[0- side him.
er The negro, Conductor Boyer says,
did not offer to pay a nickel. In
of stead, the black man grabbed the tt
it register cord and rang up half a
lrl dozen fares. di
"I'm doin' this to save you trou
ce ble," the negro is quoted as explain- V
rluing to the conductor.
' Then, he gave the motorman one s
-y bell and when the car stopped he re
t0 bowed himself away into the dark
ness. h
re The police are looking for th re
la black man, who is said to live some
rs place in Jefferson parish.

into the water. Corporal Yeager, of
Sthe Eleventh precinct, was notified. as
a He took the woman to the police sta- pa
Stion, where she said she had just ar- si
rived from Bogalusa and that she
. came to this city to visit her brother,
s, who resiles in Algiers.
d She refused to tell why she wanted
to end her life. The brother, Nicho
i, las Amann, was located at his resl- se
.r dence, 1013 Pelican avenue. He took ii
a eharge of his sister and took her to nl

Mayor Martin Behrman is going to

of advertising band bills about the

plaints reaching the Mayor's office re

enforced. Noponly will it be enforced
in the city but Algiers will also have
restrictions placed on the throwing of
these bills. Special instructions have
been issued to Chief Clerk M. J.
Rooney to issue no more permits for
