ACCIDENTALLY SHOT AND KILLED Herman Elstner, Son of a Prominent Resident of Lake Charles, Loses Iis Life at Prien Lake-Hlie and His Sis ter Alone at the Time. Lake Charles, Nov. 3.-The funeral of Herman Elstner, nineteen years old, the son of J. C. Elstner, a prominent wholesale grocer and insurance man, who accidently shot and killed himself while out hunting Wednesday after noon occurred Thursday afternoon. Young Elstner and his sister were out with a party of young people who had gone to Prien lake in gasoline launches, and Elstner and his sister had gone up Contraband bayou, a tributary of the Calcasieu, in his launch. They were ready to return when on arriving at the bayou bank they found their boat was drifting out into the stream. Young EIlstner grasped the barrel of the gun and en deavored to stop the boat by reaching for it with the gun, when the trigger caught in the oarlock and one barrel was discharged, the load entering Elst ner's chest. lie was killed almost in stantly. His sister remained with the body for nearly an hour before the rest of the party went up the bayou in search of them. They found the boat had drifted out into the bayou and the dead boy and his sister were alone on the bank. The remains were brought here at once. ---- , Will Try to Find Oil. Mr. E. S. Wood, of El Campo, Tex as, who owns a large tract of land at and adjoining the oil field. just west of Welsh, arrived last week to look after his interests here. Mr. Wood expects to farm obout 350 acres the coming season and will drill for oil on the balance. In the next sixty days there will be a determined effort made to find oil in paying quantities on a tract of land which is located in the proven field and owned by Mr. Wood. Mr. Wood stated in a con versation with a Journal representa tive last Saturday, that he had inter ested some parties, who have money enough behind them to thqroughlv de velope the field and who are confident that oil will be fofind in large and paying quantities, and who will spare no time and expense in their efforts. They expect to have a well started by the first of the year and will employ only competent and reliable drIllers and will put down several wells as fast as possible. Mr. Wood says that if oil is not found on his own land, they will try and find it on other lands ad joining, as he is sure it is there and hopes to be the lucky man in locating same. Mernmentan Dam Meeting at Jennings. On the 15th inst. there will be held at Jennings a meeting for the purpose of properly adjusting all matters per taining to the rebuilding of the Mer mentau dam. This is one of the most serious questions that has been before ) the people of the rice belt for some Stime, and immediate action is neces Ssary in order to protect next year's rice crop. Both sides of the question Swill be thoroughly discussed, and let *us hope that there will be an agree ment arrived at which will be entirely satisfactory to all parties interested The Lake Arthur Herald comments in part as follows: "It is up to those in cha'rge of the Mermentau dam proposition to devise some means whereby the excess of water may be rapidly drawn off so as not to become a menace to the pros perity of the people of that section.( There are civil engineers in the count- ( ry who have made a study of such problems and who could no doubt pre sent some valuable information on this vexatious question and relieve the existing strained condition of af fairs." -- * -- RICE MEN MEET Hold Nession in ('rowley and Take Up i Routine Matters.

December Delineator? 9 ATTACK ON A SCHOOL TEACHER Caused the Inlprisoniletelit of Four YoungI Men at Siinger Last WeeLk. They Were Bound Over on ('harge of Assault to Kill--lirl Inpil's P1'un ishmeetii Caused the Trouble, Foun Yoloung men of Sinter, .;arcn, Scott, Itobert Slaydon, (Cis Silaidoyn and I(Joseph Ilo.eis, were 1 ru,-, d(down to the city today and placed in the custody of SheriiT D. J. Rlaid tb answer to a char'c- ,f assault with in tent to kill upon V I'. Silnilntons, teacih er of the school at Sintier. It appears that Mr. Simmons in coUl'se of the discharge of his duty felt it incumbent upon him to adminiister corporal punishnent upon one of his pupils, who is said to be a small sister o(f the Slaydon boys. The story gi ((. that when the girl saw what was ine\" itable she started holme, but was over talken by the teacher and ,given cor'lior al punishment. IMr. Simmons, the teacher, claimns that he had tried tevery other meth(od of making the gi rl amendable to discipline. but that et erything else had failed and he Iva obliged to proceed to the last extrietm itv.. Last night, according to the story told at the sheriff's oflice. Mr. Sini mons, the teacher, was at Tom Htyatt's store at Singer making purchases. lie completed his purchases and start ed out of the door with his arms full of bundles, when one person struck him in the eye with his list, another made a pass at him with a knife, which he dodged, and a third struck him ov er the head with a scale weight. Sim mons dodged back into the store, thus avoiding further punishment. Sheriff Reid had a number of tele phone messages from Singer strongly depreciating the assault upon the school teacher, and stated that feeling there was such that two of the citizens of the town were deputed to arrest those who were alleged to be guilty of the assault. The young men above mentioned were accordingly brought to the city and a charge was lodged against them of making an assault with dangerous weapons, to wit: with knives and scale weights, with intent to kill. The bond was fixed at $300I each. and they were remanded to jail in default thereof.-Lake Charles American. WMrs. Aladin Vincent Dead.

The use of rice straw as a substitute for excelsior or any other straw for Spacking; purposes may become an im lp),rtant industry and may add much to to the wealth of the rice farmer. The Matagorda, (Texas) County Trib une gives a hint of these things in the following concerning a shipment of straw to New York: "J. C. LeBourgeois of New Orleans, who mantains headquartirs here dur ing the threshing season, for several years has conducted quite a successful business in the shipment and sale of rice straw to the various fruit com panies of New Orleans, for use in the packing of bananas, etc. Realizing that this purpose is not the only one for which it is adapted and that, on account of its nature, it is much better than any other straw of excelsior, he has made an experimlental shipment of one car to New York ( ity. the outcome of which is awaited here with much in terest."
