State Witness Against
J.1. F. Hays-s
A very interesting case was tried
ia Judge Ott's court Saturday when
the case of State vs. Hays. It will
be remembered that Dr. Dowling, of
the State Board of Health, when in
Bogalusa a short time ago, caused
the arrest of two men who were
conducting a medicine show. The
case against J. F. Hays was called
for trial Saturday and Mr Hays
acted as his own attorney and
proved to be capable of looking af
ter his own interests despite the
fact that the head of the State
Board of Health was the States
best witness. After all the testi- ;
mony was heard Judge Ott decided I
in favor of the defendant.
In the other case Hays was found
guilty, but sentence was not given
in order that the defendant might
have an opportunity to -file excep
Mr, Hays represents the "Dr.
Shakers" remedies and a number
of witnesses present testified that
the medicine had done great good.

Chicago and other northern cities
where he goes to look after interests
of the Great Southern Lumber Co.
He will be absent from the city

PREPARING TO HANDLE
. PARCEL POST ORUSH
Send Iour Packages Early
And Assist Office
The postal service is making ex
tensive and effective preparations
to handle the large volume of mail,
especially parcel post, expected dur
[ing the coming Christmas holidays.
Additional clerks and facilities will
be provided In order to prevent any
congestion and resultant delay and
damage to mail. The general Dublic
can materially assist the Post Office
Department in discharging its duty
by mailing their Christmas packages
as early as practicable, which will
insure their safe handling and
prompt delivery. Such action will
also rebound to the geneal benefit
of the public.
Parcels may bear the words "Not
to be opened until Christmas," or
similiar inscription, and this, to
gether with early shipment, insures
the timeliness of Christmas gifts,
whereas the practice of mailing
packages late in the hope that they
will reach their destination on Christ
mas day is likely to defeat its own
object through unavoidable delay
due to the congestion of the mails.
This is a campaign of "Prepared
ness," in which our readers are
urged to assist.

BOGALUSA MERCHANTS DISPLAY
UNUSUAL VARIETYOF XMAS GOODS
No Reasons Why A Single Article Should le Purchased
Outside Of The City---Many Special Xmas Sales
Where Rare Values Were Offered
With all shopving interest now
concentrated in Christmas and the
holidays, the Bogalusa merchants
have made elaborate decorations in
the stores. Christmas goods are
shown in large quantities, and
every novelty and attractive bar
gain that can be desired, can be
found with Bogalusa merchants.
The people are fast coming to real
this and are finding these attractive
offers, and taking advantage of the
"shop early" appeal. Christmas is
less than two weeks off, and the
prospect for an unusually large
business during the remaining days
from home people as well as the
out-of town trader, is anticipated.
The sentimental appeal to shop
early, has long since become to be
recognized as more than the greatly
deserved consideration which is due
the shop girl or salesman, as it car
ries with it the practical element of
good that redounds to the shopper
and merchants as well. The early

shopper gets the best selections at
the holiday goods, and having
bought early, shipments to nearby
sections are promptly made, and
Christmas goods are not delayed or
lost at the finish, as is often the
case with the last-rush purchase.
The Bogalusa merchants are com
niended from all sections for the
assortment, and the many attrac
tive novelties which they have
brought into the local market this
year. All the local firms are liter
ally stocked up with holiday goods,
as the great inducements in the
advertising columns will readily
It is the concensus of opinion
that the holiday business will be
the biggest for many years, and
that as Christmas draws near with
practically all of the crop picked
out, the out-of-town trade will show
great gains over previous recent
