'Many of Bogalusa people who have

as to the mill being reopened
late in autumn. General manager
C. H. Wood has been in Bogalusa
for the past few days looking after
more details and incidently, 8 more
men waere placed at work Monday.
I Mr. Woods announed on his last
trip that the mill would begin oper
ation early in September. Col.
Wright, who was here a few days
ago, was very optimistic over the
outlook for the early resumption of
work and the successful operation
of the mill. It is stated that it will
be some time as yet, before the new
m.achinery arrives and placed and
therefore no more men will be em
ployed until that time. After every
thing is placed in good condition the
mill will start and employ about 150,
to 175 men. The New Orleans l
States on Friday had the following J
to say about Mr. Wood and the mill. f

REPRESENTS NEARLY MILLION I
From the waste of the mills of
the Great Southern Lumber Co., the
paper mill gets its product. Scraps
of lumber heretofore considered (
valueless will be put through al
chemical process and turned into
heavy paper used in making boxes. c
"Capitalizing waste" is the way I
the officials express their work. The I
Bogalusa plant in operation will '
represent an investment of nearly a
million dollars. I
The Monroe, Mich. plant operated
by G. H. Wood, is the biggest in the
world. The Bogalusa mill will be I
the second largest, employing near
ly 150 skilled men at good salaries. t

many years, their father operated a

FEELI; MUCH BETTE '
Railroad s Are Buying More
Freely And P1r ices
S hirments for the month of May
will be very large from a number
of mills in the Ozone Belt. Prices
are firmer than they were thirty
days ago, and- there is a scarcity of
a number of items, particularly in
No. 1 Dimension and high grade
flooring. Lath orders are pouring
in from all sections of the country,
showing that home building is quite
active. The railroads have been
buying more freely than for some
time past, and one noticeable fea
ture of this part of the business iý
the fact that the Pennsylvania
Railroad, one of the largest railway
systems in the country, has just
placed or ders with two or three of
the large car companies which will
require about eight million feet of
Yellow Pine lumber.
Mill stocks are considerably
broken all over this section of the
country, which, of course, has a
tendency to steady prices. Taking
everything as a whale, the Yellow
Pine manufacturers are feeling
much better than they were during
the first part of the year.

CABINET MEET WiTH WiLSON
When .Anlther Note Will
lie Sent To (Gcrnanv
From official authority it was
learned Monday night that in all
probability the German note re
ceived Monday will be answered
before the end of the week.
It was plainly indicated that the
President will adopt one of two
courses-a dilatory discussion of
the facts regarding the sinkin, of
the Lusitania which issue the Ger
man note has raised or a short
sharp answer-to Germany's reply
to tha President's note setting forth
the facts as they are known to the
American government demanding
an answer on these facts from the
Officials here regarded it as par
ticularly significant that the Berlin
government failed to take advan
tage of the loophole offered them
by the President regarding the sink
ing of the Lusitania. In his note
the President stated that he could
not believe that the hugp liner had
been sunk with the knowledge of
and by direction of the German
government., On this point the
German reply said nothing, ignor
ing the subject completely.
The keen interest in the situation
was increased by the announcement
that Ambassador von Bernstorff of
Germany had arranged for a private
conference with the Presiderit on
Wednesday. While the object of
this conference is kept . secret it is
understood that the ambassador
wishes to explain to the President
that many of the suggestions which
he attempted to send to his govern
ment regarding its answer to the
American note failed to -reach the
person for whom they were in
The entire German question will
be thoroughly threshed out at the
Cabinet meeting, but it is extreme
ly unlikely that any announce
ment will follow the meeting. The
President, it was said, will consider
carefully the situation before fram
ing a reply and that it will be at
least five days before the note is
ready for transmission to Berlin.
JONES AIO PALMER CO 20
FAST HOUNOS TO A 0R0W
The fight "bugs" of Bogalusa were
given an exceptionally good run for
their money Sunday night at the
new field arena when "Gorilla" Jones i
and Eddie Palmer went 20 fast
rounds to a draw. From the tap
of the first gong until the end of
the 20th round there were not five
seconds of dead time. Jones and
Palmer swapped punches with ap
parently equal steam and number
and Referee Sutcliffe could do noth
ing but declare the fight a draw.
A return match has been secured
between the two fighters for next
Sunday night at 8 p. m.
