For a number of years Dr. Evans has lived in Paris and has dono more than any other dentist in putting "crown heads" iu the month of crown heads. Ile Was the first dentist to introduce in Europe gold filling for teeth. After the battle of Sedan Doctor Evans brought himself into prom inence by assisting the Empress Eugenie to escapèfrom Paris. He leaves a fortune estimated at from $25,000,000 to $35,000,000. Minnie'Wallace Walkup is again before the public. Shortly after the close of tUe New Orleans Exposi tion Minnie Wallace, a girl 15 years old was married to a Mr. Walkup, Mayor of Emporia Kau. Walkup was 60 years old and very wealthy. He died under suspicious circumstances in 1885 and bis young wife was accused of murder ing him. Although a post mortem revealed the fact that Walkup's death was caused by arsenic poison, Minnie was acquitted. Last Sep tember Minnie was married in Milwaukee to a millionaire banker Dy the name of John B. Ketcham. A few days ago Ketcham died suddenly; but no trace of any kiud of poison was found, aud i t is prob able that Minnie will get posses sion of her husband's property Vitlued at $500,000. The deadly jack-tlie-yellow killer came last Thursday morning. Tuesday, when Kerkam said that a cold wave would soon be here people laughed for that day, at 12 o'clock, the thermometer reg istered 85 degrees in the shade. But Kerkam knew what be was talking about for about 3 p. m., the mercury plunged downward, a l.a Texas blizzard, and in six bours there was a fall in the tern perature of 27 degrees. Wednesday the wind died out and Thursday morning a heavy white frost cov ered the earth. Yellow fever germs must have turned up their toes aud died without offering any resistance. The cold spell has removed entire ly all danger of a further spread of the lever this year. There no doubt will be occasional cases re corded in the infected places until January; but there is absolutely uo danger of a spread until warm weather of spring comes. This cold spell will certainly hasten the removing of quarantine restrictions against all points. Most of the parishes have already removed quarantine against west ern points, aud we learn that it was decided by the health officers ol different parishes who met in Lafayette last Wednesday to do away with all quarantine except that ou household goods on the 25th of this month.

An early morning accident at the switch table on the Honma Branch R. K. near Houma. It was a case similar to that of the pitcher that went to the well once too often; only it was an un fortunate boy that rode ou the cow-catcher once too often. In the first instance a pitcher got broken, a frail inanimate pitcher that one piece of silver could replace, while in the other instance a living be ing with animated bust aud im perishable soul was the victim—a victim that the combined wealth of all the world could uot animate again. When, some time ago, The Courier called the atteutiou of parents to the danger of allowing children to swing on and oft the Houma train while it was in mo tion, it foresaw that unless the warning was heeded somb dreadful fatality would result. The railroad officials foresaw it too aud did what they could to prevent it. They had notices printed aud tacked up in conspicuous places warning boys to keep ot the prop erty of the Railroad, and if we mistake not, even went so far as to arrest or threaten to arrest sev eral boys who did not heed the warning. But notwithstanding the utmost precautions of the train and sta tion officials young boys would swing on and off moving trains. Sometimes they would swing on to the steps of the coaches and at other times would stand on the cow-catclier of the engine. Early last Wednesday morning while the engine was switching three negro boys jumped ou to the cow-catcher. After riding a short distance two of the boys jumped off, and the third, Alfred Green, aged 14 years, attempted to jump; but his loot slipped and he fell under the engine. The locomotive, with its weight of many tons, passed over the unfortunate yonth cutting off both legs near the thigh. A number of persons soon assem bled around the mangled lad, and a surgeon dispatched for ; but lit tle could be done for the boy ex cept to allay his suffering, and he died several hours afterward. Accept Thank». The Courier , for the people of Houma, as well as for itself, wishes to thank Supt. Owens and the local Southern Pacific officials, Messrs. Chauvin aud Thompsou, for their courtesy in furnishing yellow tever news during the past epidemic in New Orleans.

The Courier's bulletin board was the center of attraction, every morning, during the fever, and we could not have made it so, had it not been for courtesy of the above mentioned gentlemen in supplying us with copies of the daily bulle tins.
