"Following the hold-up of the I north bound passenger train at Hattiesburg Monday night as de tailed in yesterday's paper, an unu sually large number of strikers, friends and sympathizers assembled at the Gulf and Ship Island depot yesterday morning at 9;30 when the delayed north bound passenger train came min. The sheriff had informed the strikers and sympathizers that they must not cross the "mark" A large white line some eight or ten feet from the tracks: that if they did so he would arrest every man violating his orders. His words seemed to have the proper effect, and the strikers held back. "The train pulled into Hattiesburg fifteen or twenty minutes late. It was allowed to unload its express and baggage and transfer packages and parcels from the train that arrived the night before, and, which stood idle on the track. There was no shooting, jeering, cursing or in sulting language used toward the train crew. The loading and un loading went on without interruption and the strikers seem to have practically withdrawn, and all were feeling better. "The 'all aboard' was given by Conductor Dorsev, and the train slowly pulled out over the first crossing. The conductor accom panied his negro porter to the second crossing, but a short distance ahead, the strikers and sympa thizers made a rush for the porter, and for a few seconds it seemed they would reach him. But Mr. Dorsey drew his right-hand pistol and yelled out, 'Stop! come no further.' They still surged onward, when the courageous conductor drew a second pistol, with his left hand, and cried out. "Advance another step and I'll fire." "His words had magical effect, for instead of going onward in an effort to get the porter, many in the crowd broke and ran in different directions." "Mr. Dorsey was perfectly calm, but stood as firm as an old warrior in battle. He was afterwards heard to say, "Boys, I do not want to shoot you, but you must not interfere with my train, and they did not." "After the incident the conductor entered the plassenger coach and was applauded for his act, He then said: "If there are any guards on this train, I want them to get off, I don't need them. I can run this train without them. "And after that everything was a smooth and balmy as the zephyrs a of May mornining....Clarion Led ger. Conductor Dorsey is a brother of M.R. and W.G.

For information call at 530 Avenue B LARGE CROWDS ENJOY SWAIN'S BIC SHOWS Matinee Will Be Given Saturday--Virginian Friday Shows may come and shows may go, but the amusement loving pub lic hope that the W. I. Swain Show Company, will go on forever like Tennyson's Book. This was to be discerned Monday night in the big crowd that flocked to the "Kant Leak" tent and witnessed the open ing performance of the company's week's engagement in Bogalusa. The reputation of the W. I. Swain Shows has been great in the past, but Monday night only served to clinch a stronger hold on the citi zens of Bogalusa. The entire out fit is new this season, the band ap. peared in new uniforms of western type, and it is the best band Swain has ever had. Instead or trying to see how much noise they can make they actually play music that it is a pleasure to listen to- This alone is out of the ordinary for a show band. The company is the largest ever here, and by far the best. The opening play, "The Minister's Son" is one of the best ever in the Swain repertoire. a complete new scenic equipment was used, and from pres ent indications, Swain has the big gest and best show he has' ever had. A pleasing inovation with the Swain Show both in the past and this season, is the entire elimination of "rough stuff' or smut so often seen and heard with shows of this kind, Diavolo; the Air Rider is the free act, and never has Bogalusa witness ed a better or more sensational ac't Just in front of the tent is a frail tower, which appears to pierce the very heavens, so tall it seems. You glance upward, and there upon the very pinnacle of the tower, his cos tume of blood red making a luris streak agaist the black dome of the vaulted sky above, stands a man, diminutive in stature because of the great distance. The voice of the speller ceases, and a solemnr hush falls over the sea of upturntd faces as the figure in red at the top of the tower pauses a moment be fore making his ride through space. The figure bends forward with out stretched arms, and you catch your breath with a thrill of horror of the awful daring of the man. Then with a flash like that of a meteor, the lurid figure cuts the air like a knife, and the crowd gasps as they look for his body to be dashed to pieces. Instead of such a tragic ending he strikes the flimsey look ing ten foot net with the force of a catapult, his body rebounds ten or twelve feet in the air, and he lights right side up with care, to appear smiling and bowing before the crowd. Ski-High Diavolo, the big free act of the W. I. Swain Shows, has once more escaped almost cer tain destruction. There are many sensational and thrilling tree acts but none in the same class with Diavolo. Friday night is the feature play of the engagement which is a dra. matization of Owen Winster's in comparable western story, "The Virginian," Everything necessary, costumes, scenery, and effect-to make up a finished and complete production is carried, and "The Vir ginian" is proving the best and most pleasing feature ever offered by the Swain firm. Saturday after noon at 2:30 will be a special mati nee. the company appearin' in a dramatization of the famous novel, "Lady Audley's Secret," and on Sat urdav night as a fitting last night production the great four act sen sation melodrama, "The Hidden Hand" will be offered.

TURN NATURALLY TO HOME Scientists Have Noted Remarkable In. stinct in the Noddy and Sooty Terns. Prof. J. B. Watson and Dr. K. S. Lashley of the department of marine biology of the Carnegie institution have made some interesting tests of the noddy and the sooty terns that breed at Bird key, in the Tortugas, relates the Youth's Companion. On the western side of the island, which is at the northern limit of the migra tion of these two tropical terns, the open water of the Gulf of Mexico stretches for several hundred miles, and makes an ideal place for testing the homing instinct of the birds. The investigators caught terns at their nesting places, put special paint marks upon the heads and necks of individual birds, tied small tags re cording the date and place round their necks, and placed correspond ing tags beside the nests. Then they had the birds transported in large cases to a distance and liberated, while they watched for their return. The result showed that in tile alsence of all landmarks these two varieties of tern can return to their homes from any distance up to a thousand miles, and that they can return from a point in the open sea as easily as they can return from a point on the coast. Although Professor Watson and Doctor Lashley prefer to experi ment further before attributing to the birds any special mysterious sense, what they say in concluding their report is significant: "We are far from being without hope that fu ture studies may yield results that will enable us to solve the riddle that has been propounded to scientific men of all ages, but that as yet has never been satisfactorily answeed."

Does your wife fly? If so, she's in style--right up to the minute. If she flies upside down, she's ultrafashionable, because that means she can loop the loop. But if she hasn't got an aeroplane she's hopelessly lost. Because aeroplane flying for women has come to be quite the thing! To provide better tutoring facili ties for women who want to learn to fly, the Misses Katherine and Mar jorie Stimson of Chicago will open an aviation school at San Antonio in the spring, it is announced. Miss Katherine, who is only nineteen years old, and who still wears her hair down her back, already has made a record as an airwoman. She was the first woman in the world to loop the loop and to fly up side down, and she is still the only woman who performs these feats. She has looped the loop more than two hundred and fifty times. Miss Marjorie, who is two years her sis ter's junior, also is a daring and skillful flyer. INTERESTING INVESTIGATION. The plants used by the American aborigines form the subject of a spe cial investigation which the United States bureau of plant industry has been carrying on for some years. All available literature on exploration, early travels and settlement in this country, as well as later publications, are searched for information as to the knowledge which the aborigines possessed regarding the uses cf plants, and this information is ab stracted and filed under the name of each plant. It is expected that this undertaking will not be completed for publication before the year 1924. HE DIDN'T LIKE IT. Papa-If you're sick tell your mother. She'll give you sage advice. Little Willie-Yes, and sage tea, too, and I don't like it. SMALL VESSELS DISARDED. The Paris corespondent of the Na val and Military Record says that in France the "baby" submarine type is descredited. The idea of Da vid slaying the giant, of diminutive craft of trifling cost sinking masto dons costing many millions, has al ways been cherished by would-be French inventors, who, in the re markable devices from time to time offered to the Rue Royale admiralty, forgot one fact of capital impor tance, namely, that the sea is cruel to the undersized. Consequently a common tendency in craft of all classes is continuously to increase in displacement, with a view to being in a better condition to fight the sea which is the first enemy, and an everyday one, of navigator LONDONEP' WANT RABBITS. The demand for rabbits is so great in London that special rabbit trains are being run over some of the branch lines in Devon and Somerset. Deal ers have established services of motor lorries to bring the rabbits from the farms on which they have been caught to the nearest distributing cenlers. In normal times D)evon farmers are ccntent to receive 12 cents for a rabbit. Now some deal ers are giving three times that amount for freshly trapped rabbits. FATHER OF ALL FOGHORNS. A foghorn which has recently been constructed for the United States lighthouse service is so large that a man may easily step inside of it. It is said to resemble half of a subma rine boat, and may be heard for twenty-five or thirty miles at sea. HE HAD QUITE A TIME. IHeiny-Omer pawned his new watch one day last week.
