The stout heart of the father,
now returned home from th4
hunt, only tells the story of thi
loss of his child. "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

Card of Thanks.
Opelousas, La., Aug. 29, 1912.
Editor St. Landry Clarion,
Opelousas, La.
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.
With hopes that such misfor
tune and distress will never visit
any of you, we are,
Yours very sincerely,
MR. and MR&. C P. DLNBAR.
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.
He is entirely bjind in the left I
eye. 1a

The recent action of the Goo
