"My boy is dead." How? When? Where? That is left to the Power above. ,We know that little Robert if lost. That's all. Robert Dunbar, four years old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Percy Dunbar, mysteriously disappear ed from Swayze Lake, where he was with his parents and a party of people to spend a few days fishing and hunting. His disappearance occurred Friday last, at about noon, and is surrounded by mystery. It appears that Mr. Dunbar, the father, was called to pass a notarial act. He left with the gentleman wanting the work one. Little Robert attempted to follow. The father told him to go back to camp. The child retraced his steps. He was seen aifew minutes after atthe camp. Then he disappeared. The camp was nearly a mile from the railroad track. He was traced by footprints to the track, then 'along the track for several hundred yards; then down the embankment; up again unto the track, then, in an opposite direc tion from the lake-and that is all that is known of him. Major John M. Oge and Dr. L Daly, who were there, and who. have remained there ever since, searching for the lost child, be lieve that, mistaken the path to the camp, he took to the woods, was lost there, and perished in the dense cane breaks, weeds And.nudetbrush. At least five hundred men, vol unteers, have scoured the woods, men have dived into the take; dynamite has been exploded, all in an endeavor to recover the body, but to no avail. As soon as the news of the disappearance of little Robert reached Opelousas Friday even ing, a special train was furnished by Major Flanders, of the Ope lousas Gulf & Northeastern rail road, and a party of over a hun dred men left for the scene.. Saturday morning, at three o'clock, another party, consist ing of fifty men, left on another Saturduy people from Port Barre, Paetto, Melville,. Crow ley and otherplaces, went to aid in the seareb, until the woods teemed with people. The search has been unremit ting. So thorough has it been j that many, are now of the opinion I that the boy was picked up by somb fisherman or hunter, and is now alive in some camp. It is pointed out that the search of the lake and the woodd has beenso thorough that it is hardly possible that the boy could be in either. ''he parents have hope that he i still alive and in the hope of recovering him, citizens of the city of Opelousas have offered a reward for his return alive. The reward follows: $io00.o00 REWARD! One Thousand Dollars has been subscribed by citizens of Opelon ass and depesited with the Planters National Bank of Ope lousas, La., to be paid to any person or persons who will de liver to his parents alive little Robert Clarence Dunbar.

Dear Sir: As it is an impossibility for us to thank in person our thousands of friends who have used every effort to restore to us our dear little boy, we ask that you do so through your paper, as it will reach many of whom we cannot see. Words cannot express our thanks for what has been done for us by this vast army of hu man beings, many of whom do not know us in person, but their hearts went out to us in our dis tress and the sole object of all was1 to assist us with their sympathy, strength and finances. We are well aware that all has been done which human effort can accomplish, and it is a com fort to know that our country is filled with one- of the kindest hearted people on earth.

WILL FRAZEE LOSES HIS LEFT EYE Was Fishing Near His Home, Om Pearl River, and Slip ped and Fell on a Log. The many friends of Hon. Will S. Frazee will regret to learn that he had the misfortune of losing his left eye, by falling on a log, while fishing near his home on Pearl River. Mr. Frazee's son, W. S. Fra see, Jr., arrived here Monday, and conveyed the intelligence. His father, he says, was fishing in Pearl River. He landed a' large trout. Elated over his catch, he- ran along the log on which he was fishing and just as he got to the end he slipped and fell, his eye striking the log.
