BOGALUSA WINS FROM SLIDELL SUNDAY, 17-6 At Slidell last Sunday, for the sec ond time this season, Bogalusa de featd the Slidell club by a score of 17 to 6. Though Slidell had several new players in their line-up, includ ing Cochran, a speed-ball pitcher, the slugging of locals proved too much for the "brickmakers. Bogalusa se cured 15 hits off Cochran, amongst them a double, five triples and a home run. In addition, eight bases were stolen off Decker, Boyd and Stevens stealing at will. The locals used Louis Marx and Verrett on the mound, and at no time did Slidell have a chance. Due to the poor condition of the diamond, Boga lusa was charged with seven errors, but their hard hitting more than made up for the miscues. Boyd, in fives times at bat, secured a single, a double and two triples, stole three bases, third twice. Stevens secured a single, triple and home run out of five trips to the plate. The work of these two men was easily the feature of the game. A fair crowd witnessed the game.

Here came one possessed*.of great vision ; To him was the Future revealed, And he glimpsed here a City Elysian Encompassed by woodland and field. No thought of thg n^pil and the labor This pioneer's purpose could daunt, But Genius he used as a sabre, Cutting Wealth from a Province of Want. Then axes flashed high in thé jungle, And great plumed monarchs lay low. No thought of a failure or bungle— 'Twas time for the forest to go ! So the saws sang their sibilant chorus, Where, gleaming, rose over the hill Shining rails, bringing Progress before us, As they swept on their way to the Mill. Thus Energy, Courage and Knowledge The forest has conquered at last— By wisdom not gained in a college, But learned in the wilderness vast. And now, where the woodland was deepest, Where savages crept through the gloom, Where shadows were longest and steepest, Arises the Mill's mighty plume! This plume a victorious banner That waves o'er a City Supreme ; And this was the method and manner The City supplanted the Dream. So hail, Bogalusa! Your splendor Is known to the ends of the earth ! And hail to its author, defender, The Man who has givçn it birth!

The occasion is most auspicious —the anniversary of the birth day of a gentleman known to every citizen, who rejoices in the name of W. H. Sullivan. If the readers of this column can get one-tenth of the enjoyment out of this little rhyme that the guy that built it did, believe me, they are going to be going some. So, here we are: Today us folks are letting loose A triumphant yell for Bogaluse, Because it is the day we. plan To shriek for William Sulli-van! Mayor Billy thought his duty plain To march around with Mayor McShane In New Orleans, with full ac cord, To glorify one, Henry Ford. But here in Bogalusa Town We do not think of Ford's re nown, But rather our respects we pay To Sullivan—his natal day! So, when of Orleans he grows tired— With thoughts of home his soul inspired— We know he'll catch an early train To come back to his town again. Oh, yes! I most forgot to say What the weather'll be today; And I don't think I really can. So much we miss Bill Sulli-van! And how can weather I define Without the help of Dr. Cline,? But just to give a weatheir touch, We think the weather won't be much.
