COLONIAL HOTEL TO iE HEADY
FOR BUSINESS ON MAY FIBST
The reopening of the Colonial
Hotel has been delayed until May 1,
due to the fact that the work of
making the improvements and
changes was greater than expected,
and S. W. O'Brien. the manager,
stated that he would rather delay
the opening a few days and have
everything in perfect condition than
to open this week and have the
public disappointed. The hotel
will be operated on both the Ameri
can and European plan, and later
on a restaurant for short orders will
be operated.
Organ Received
The North West Bogalusa Baptist I
Ladies Aid have received the fold
ing organ which will be used for the
ladies services and the prayer meet
ings held in different homes every
Tuesday afternoons and evenings
respectively. The organ was a
surprise to the pastor Rev. J. E.
Brakefield.
Mrs. Will Barland who has been
in the Bogalusa Hospital for some
time is improving wonderfully.
THE CUT OVER LAND DEPARTMENT
has .been selecting the locations for 20 farms which will
be improved this year. Twenty acres on each farm will
be cleared free from stumps, plowed and planted to some
good leguminous crop. A neat bungalow and barn will
be built, well put down, and an orchard planted consist
ing of Satsuma Oranges, Pecans, Figs and Plums
In future the energies of this department will be largely
devoted to the sale of these farms
We have a few improved farms
which are now ready for sale

BUILDING FIRE SIATION WHICH
WILL ALSO GE MEETING PLACE
Workmen have about completed
the new fire station of the Columbia
street Volunteer fire department
which is a credit to the hustling
merchants of that section of the
city. While the department has
been organized only a short time,
they have raised several hundred
dollars by entertainments of various
kinds, purchased fire equipment.
and now have erected the building
without any assistance except the
$75 Which was recently appropri
ated at a recent council meeting.
Heretofore that section of the city
has been handicapped for a meeting
place to discuss improvements and
ouestions which they were greatly
interested, so the new fire house
was built large enough to serve as
a meeting place, and hereafter
questions will be discussed and
settled by the residents of that
section of the city, and when mat
ters are to be decided Columbia
Street citizens will vote almost as a
unit.

105 MEXICANS KILLED
WHEN THEY FIRE ON U. S.
Population Of One Of Lar
gest Cities In Fight With
130 U. S. Calverymen
Elpaso, Texas, April 13.-Mexican
hatred of Americans, which has
fanned into a veritable conflagra
tion since General Pershing crossed
the international border more than
three weeks ago, broke all bounds
in the city of Parral yesterday
evening and for three hours 150
United States calvarymen were
compelled to fight the population
of one of the largest cities in the
republic.
105 Mexican civilians and soldiers
were killed and an American troop
er lost his life.
Scores of Mexicans were also
wounded in the desperate fight,
which only came to an end when
the cooler heads among the officers
of the Carrancista garrison managed
to whip the enraged people into
line long enough to give the Ameri
cans time to leave the city.
Mexican officials bitterly censure
the American soldiers for entering
a Mexican city in direct defiance
of General Carranza's order that
they were to avoid all centers of
population. The American side on
this point is still to be heard from.
But right or wrong, the official re
ports of the conflict show that the
little band of troopers lived up to
the best traditions of American
fighting spirit, and while hopelessly
outnumbered, fought hard, shot
straight and refused to quit.
