e A message from New Orleans to
the Enterprise Wednesday afternoon
at 3 o'clock stated that Pleasant
would sweep the state by a majority
of not less than 35,000 and that this
hour Barret had carried only one
Parish, that of St. John. Pleasant
carried New Orleans by 25,000
In the race for Lieut. Gov., the
race is very close, both Mouton and
Claiborne running neck and neck.
In New Orleans Mouton received
12,000 votes and Claiborne 10,000.
In other parts of the state the race
was almost as close and it is be
lieved that it will require an official
count to decide this race.
James J. Bailey has been elected
to the office of Secretary of the
State by a safe plurality, while 0.
B. Steele has won over Capdeville
for the office of State Auditor.
Hunsicker has won over Robert
Collins for State Treasurer and Coco
has easily defeated Millsaps for
Attorney General.
Fred J. Grace will be returned to
the Register of Land office while the
election of Harry D. Wilson is like
wise certain.
In this parish, with three pre
cincts to hear from, Col. Pleasant
has a majority of 389. The three
to report are Isabel, Varnado and
Filiah. It is believed that they
will increase the maiority of Col.
Pleasant to over 425.
The complete and official figures
in the sheriffs race are as follows:
There is scarcely a week passes
that something is not done at the
Bogue Chitto Stock Farm to main
tain their reputation as the finest
and most progressive farm in the i
state. On Monday 41 more head of
fine Angora goats were received bye
express from New 'dexicu. True to
their policy of buy:inH.1 only the best
Mtock, these ::.,t are considered'
eual to, on in, t,i co,:ntrv. When
they art shelred te:t April it is
expec'ed that they wilJ yield 4
1pounds to to the head. They are at
tractive animals and appear to
krnow that they have no superiors,.
Improvements continue at the farm
among which is the planting of
1000 orange trees.

Judge Lancaster Home
Judge Jos. B. Lancaster returned
Saturday night from New Orleans,
where he spent the last three weeks
having undergone a serious opera
tion at the Hotel Dieu. Judge Lan
caster is on the road to recovery,
much to the delight of his many
friends, and it will be but a short
time when he will be at his post of
duty.-St. Tammany Farmer.
Has Many Friends Here
Hon. F. R. Birdsall is spoken of
as Secretary-Treasurer of the Yazoo
Mississippi Levee Board. If Governor
Bilbo wants a strictly business man

than appoint Mr. Birdsall. He is
also an ardent supporter of the
newly elected Governor.-Winston
County Journal.
And (ontainer Board Will
Be Made Within The
Next Few Days
And Bogalusa's Million
Dollar Mill Run Full
The Louisiana Fibre Boa d Co.
will begin the operation of their
million dollar plant some time dur
ing the coming week. For the past
few days the pulp department has
been working in perfect condition
and just as soon as enough pulp is
on-hand to start making the con
tainer board the other department
of the mill will also begin operation.
It is estimated that a run of seven
to ten days of the pulp department
will be required before the work
starts in the other department. The
pulp made from yellow pine is said
to be unexcelled and the machinery
is working perfectly.
Gen. Mgr. Wood who left Satur
day for Havana, is expected to
return to Bogalusa the early part of
next week and will remain for a
few days to see the mill making the
container board.
The mill represents an invest
ment of about one million dollars
and will give steady employment
to 200 or more men. The demand
for the product is good and indica
tions point to the fact that the mill
will not only be kept running full
blast but they will' be unable to
keep up with their orders. It is
stated that the first mon&'s output
has already been sold.
Meeting Will Be fHeld At
Pine Tree Inn At An
Early Date
Bogalusa is soon to have a lodge
of Elks and active work will start
within the next few days to organ
ize the lodge. There are already a
score of Elks in Bogalusa, belonging
to lodges through the country, and
the first step towards securing the
lodge will be a meeting of these
Elks. The meeting will will be held
at the Pine Tree Inn and if possible,
District Deputy Herman Michel, of
New Orleans, will attend the meet
ing. Those who are members of the
order are requested to send their
names and the lodge to which they
belonw to Clyde S. Moss at the
Enterprise office at once. The social
and charity features of this organ
ization are to well known to require
any comment and it is believed that
the Bogalusa lodge, when organized,
will be a credit to the organization.
Several plans and important
matters will be discussed at the first
meeting and it is important that all
Elks be present.
Pine Tree lasI Dance
The complimentary dance given by
the Pine Tree Inn Saturday evening
was in keeping with the standard
set by Mr. Eaux since he became
manager aid as a result it was one
of the most enjoyable events in the
history of Bogalusa. Mr. and Mrs.
G. A. Townsend lead the Grand
March, which was pronounced as
one of the best ever witnessed here.
Music was furnished by Faber's
Orchestra. Besides a large number
of Bogalusa people in attendance,
there were several out of town
