Miss Lillian Legnon. a young lady residing at 719 Eliza street with her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Legnon,. was taken to the hospital for mental diseases after an examination by Dr. O'Hara. where it is hoped she might improve sufficiently to be taken home again. Miss Legnon was con fined four months and more at the Louisiana Retreat, where she was sent for the same condition for which she is being treated now. She returned from the Louisiana Retreat however, a month ago but with no marked improvement. Mrs. Legion. the mother of the young lady, tells a sad story regarding her daughter's failing mind. Mrs. Legnon stated that about three years ago her daughter visited Baldwin. Louisiana. where she met a young man by the name Mr. Dayries. who was a clerk on a plantation near Adaline. Mrs. Legnon said she did not remember the young man's first name and she had seen him but one time. Mrs. Legnon stated that her daughter be came infatuated with the young man and remained at Baldwin about six months. when she returned to Al giers and this was about three years ago and was at this time when she first noticed her daughter's mind was becoming deranged. The moth er stated the girl still continues to speak about the young man but that there had never been any corre spondence between them. On sev eral occasions Miss Lillian ran away from home and Mrs. Legnon stated she did not know where the young lady had gone. She disappeared again a few days ago and her par ents enlisted the aid of the New Or leans police. Lillian was found wan dering about the streets on the city side of the river, where she was ta ken in charge and sent to the men Ital hospital. Mr. and Mrs. Legnon ihave done everything they could in their power to secure relief for the young lady, who is now near twenty years of age. The parents are very much grieved over the conditdon. and they are deserving of the sym Fathry of their many friends and acquaintances here. Mr. Legnon is an employee of the Fairbanks ('o. of the city. HISTORIC PAGEANT.

That the arsonists used oil-soaked waste or paper which they pushed through the holes they bored was evident front the odor of oil which Mr. Gayaut smelled upon arising. Mr. Gayaut's sleeping quarters are just to the rear of the saloon. He was awakened by smoke, and, upon going into the saloon, saw the flames near the front door. He telephoned for Chemical Engine No. 13, which is nearby, and the crew extinguished the blaze. A damage of only $25 was done to the building. No dam age was done to the contents. Mr. Gayaut is at a loss to find a motive. He told the police he has no known enemies. HOLY NAME CL'UB JOINS THE S. A. A. U.
