BURRIS INUCCRPORATE GREAT SUliRNill TO 5lUlD ANOTHEF BiG PLANT THIS YEAR That B3ogalusa is de-. lned to become 2ne of the b. w.ww nu facturing cities I)f t,; " and that not mnuch time P' lo),t in making further iihe :r is demonstrated by the .,ounce ment that the Gre:+ , uthern Lumber Company i!:. Thring the coming year, erect a plant to utilize part of the ::ws from the mill. Details are hl icng as to the kind of a plant tut will be erecied, due to the fac:t that the directors are undec -8l as to which of the plants they will build this year but tut loca tion of the first plant has already been decided upon. 'i'i, new enterprise will be located on Columbia Street, just opposite the Bogalusa Laundry. Most likely it will be a paper mill, which will make a prowllat simi lar to that known ais I:ver Board. Recently a carload of pull was siippeAd from Bog,,lusa to a Canadian mill where a test was made which is reported to have been satisfactory. It is al SO known that the Great South ern Lumber Co., have expended several thousands of dollars to get reports on now to utilize the enormous i aste at the Worlds Greatest Mill and the reports show that far more is wasted than saved. "The owners of the Great I Southern Lumber Co., are now operating the mill and they are planning on how to save the waste. We have planned to build a plant during the coming year, but to give the exact kind and number it will employ, I am not prepared to state at present," said General Manager, VW. H.

LETFERS FROM THE PEOPLE Editor Era-Lteader: I want to writv something concerning the political ilsue but I'mn so nervous I can hardly hold my pen how ever since there is so many strange ideas and false criticisms cnncerning the political issue that I can hardly help trying to meet sjme of them. What is a sur price to me is when a man who is a candidate before the people and ii called upon to take up an impor.ant issue and positively re fusestodosoand his opoinen agree., to take up an issue and to all in nis powor to have thbo prin-`. cipleýS f that issue enactel itnto: law ad then some peo.'e will doubt the sincerity of the man that has talken up that issue be cause his political enemies bring up all kinds of criticisms against him in order to defeat him. The last dodge that I see against Mr. Barret is that his enimies want to snake ' _' ar that the Baptist r "ailed Lrse him At the Stte Convey `tAOat DeRi der, whit Sis no aurpgse t6 thole that know, s they kere pot there to indo.e f candidates but to discuss the. e n principles of religion, They .&id Sindorse the action of the Anti S.loon League because tec whirs key , Ai is a question that effect I both .urch and state.
