Think There is no occasiun for Alarm. Etta D Com ing in Tonight May Bring News. The St. Charles, an oyster dredge j boat of the Louisiana Fish and Oys-1 ter Co. fleet may have encountered i a storm on the reef, as n*> report | from her or her crew has reached | the officers of the company in Ber wick since her departure for the Diamond reef on Dec. 26th. Shortly after the departure ofthe St. Charles, the Ruth J a freight boat belonging to the same company started for the reef to bring back a load of oysters. The Ruth J is a freighter operating between the St. Charles, the dredge boat and the company factory in Berwick. The Ruth J returned to port and report ed that the St. Charles was not at the Diamond reef and that no trace of the boat could be found. Mr. W. J. I.owrance, Presklent of the La. Fish & Oyster Company immediately made preparations to make a search for the missing boat and the Ruth J departed again yesterday with Mr. Lowrance on board. The Etta D, another freight boat of the company is expected to arrive tonight and may bring some news of flie missing boat. In event that the Edda D has found no trace of the WHITE MAN HELD IN EEVES MURDER Four Negrois Say That Hy. Walter is the Murdeter Of Fanner who Had ' Money. The confession of four negroes held for the murder of Nelson Reeves the farmer who with his fam ily fell victim to a wholesale butch ery at his home near Monroe has caused the arrest of Henry Waller, a white farmer 33 years old who was a neighbor of the slain family. The accused pleaded with the officers not to let the mob get him and denied the charge of wielding the axe in the butchery. John Long another white man has made a written confession implicating Waller and the pair have been removed to the Baton Rouge jail for keeping. See SHOES tonight, Opera House. PARCELS MAILED EARLY HERE Asked why there was no conges tion in the local postoffice during the last few days of the Xmas rush, postmaster Hebert said this morning that "He was inclined to give the credit to the increased publicity of the "Mail Your Parcels Early" pro paganda, saying that with the Mor gan City people it had been effective and that the rush of the last few days was with incoming parcels. The postmaster this year furnish ed the press with material on the ad vantages of mailing parcels early, and placed signs in various stores and public places, as well as writing to various clubs and organizations urging the necessity of mailing par cels early. By correspondence, by addresses and through the press Mr. Hebert did everything in his power to see that there was no delay in the Xmas presents mailed by Morgan City citizens, and his success is now a matter of record. The posai re ceipts from Dec. 11th to 25th show ed an increase of 35 per cent and yet there was no time when the post office was swanped. See SHOES tonight, Opera House. Mr. J. L. Bass bought $1500 worth of furs in Napoleonville yes terday. St. Charles, it is not likely that there will be any news before Monday when the Ruth J is expected to re turn. The St. Charles had nine men on board. Those missing are Ben Reno, Captain, Bert Autin and Will .Frau menthal, engineer and fireman, cul lers, Andrew Pizzini, Ernest Pizzini, Francois Lombas, Andrew Gillory, Victor Duprey and S. Hebert, all white. #• Wind from South Officials from the La. Fish and Oyster Co. say that there® is little probability that the St. Charles en encountdbed a storm as the wind was from the south and would have like ly blown the boat in to the shore. They think it likely that the boat is in one of the bayous, or that she was obscured by a fog.,causing the crew of the Ruth J to miss seeing her. It is the opinion of Mrs. M. A. -Sutton, secretary of the Louisiana Fish and Oyster Company, also acting mana ger in the absence of Mr. Lowrance, that the boat is safe' and that the crew is unaware of the easiness caused by their failure to come in contact with the Ruth J. Contestants Must Turn In Their Votes Today To Win Monthly Prize As the month draws to a close it is timely advice to say to contes i tnats that they must bring in votes today of the expect them to count to !ward winning the beautiful 26-piece Silver Set and case which has been displayed in the window of Fisher Brothers, haberdashery for the past few weeks. The winner of this set will be made known Monday. Votes in order to be counted in December I must be turned before the month is |gone. The Silver Sets for October and November were won by contes tants No. 217 and No. 240. This ! month it wiH go to another contes tant as the rulçs of the contest will not permit any contestant to win more than one of these sets, how ever, the votes to win this set do cotint toward the winning of any of the seven main prizes which will be awarded on March 1st. Some of the contestants have been celebrating Xmas this week while others have been hard at work, realizing that this is a good time to pile up a good bunch of votes. After the first of the year it is expected that everyone of the contestants will get down to hard work and f make every day count, as there will be but two months left of the contest. Sometimes these contests are very close, and the difference between the first and second prizes is only one or two subscriptions and. then the winner of .the second place al ways thinks of fifty places where they might have secured a subscrip tion had he or she tried. Dont forget to hustle for com mercial printing. Many firms will lay in a new supply of printed mat ter after the first of the year and if you fail to get your share of the votes it will be your fault.
