A C(hance to Buy a Building Lot at ll
Your Own Price.
A splendid opportunity for making
a good investment will be given the
people of Welsh and vicinity next
Saturday, when forty splendid build
ing lots belonging to H. E. Wesson, a
and located high and dry in the north
east part of town, will be sold to the ti
highest bidder on easy terms. These b
lots are located in a portion of the L
city where the most rapid iml)rove- a
ments have been made during the past h
year. New streets have been laid out e
and graded, new walks built and new I
houses erected; in fact there is no d
more choice location in Welsh for a it
home, or a surer location for a pay- L
ing investment than this section af- a
fords. Welsh, located in the midst of p
the finest agricultutval section of the s
South, with her substantial business tl
establishnients, her two splendid rice ii
mills, an efficient ice plant, two well v
equipped machine shops, oil fields ti
which are being rapidly develol. d, a f;
granitoid plant in prospect, with an- p
other railroad heading this way, fur- li
nishes as sure a field for the invest- d
ment of money in real estate as can I,
be found in the South.
These choice lots will be sold Sat- a
urday April, 27th, upon the ground, b
as advertised elewhere in this paper, h
and furnishes an opportunity that will tl
doubtless be taken advantage of by iý
every shrewd speculator of this sec- c
tion, of placing their money so as to tl
have it make them a fine increase in
the course of the next year.
MANY CATTLE DYING.
Contagious Disease Spreads Through
A number of cattle are reported to ;
be dying in the Unkel neighborhood, i
due to some unknown disease. The a
beast when affected begins swelling
under the chin and throat and dies in ;
the course of 36 to 48 hours. The
first death occurred several days ago,
when a cow died on thb canal levee, 1
near the Mallet school house, rolled
part way into the canal where,
throguh the criminal negligence of the 1
owner, the carcass still remains, pol
i ting the water supply for the cattle
that run on the range. Since then
several other cattle have died and
have been promptly buried or burned.
That any man should permit stock
that had died of a contagious disease,
to remain above ground or in the
drinking water of other stock, seems
incredible, but the fact remains that i
such is the case, and we believe
should be immediately attended to by
the strong arm of the law.

I)lsastroiis Fire at Mayville Saturday
A disastrous fire occurred last Sat
urdav night on the Mayville plant, in
which the superintendent, E. J. Miller
and his partner, Lezine Lainbert,
sustained a loss of about $210o: while
the company lost about 500. The
barn on the place, occupied by Mr.
Lambert, was burned to the ground
and with it six head of mules, two
horses, and all the harness, machin
ery, feed, etc. Messrs. Miller uad
Lnambert were handling a three hun
dred acre crop. Mrs. ambert being
ill and the evening thclemate, Mr.
Lambert had done hi. chores early,
and at the time of the tire was in the
part of his house away from the barn,
so he did not discover the tire until
the entire structure was enveloped in
ilaines. It was only a matter of a
very few minutes from the time the
tire was discovered until the roof had
fallen in and it was practically im
possible to save anything. The total
loss aggregates about twenty-six hun
dred dollars, all of which is a total
The origin of the tire is a mystery,
as there had been no one around the
barn, so far as is known, for several
hours before the fire. Mr. Miller has
the sympathy of the entire community
in his loss, whioh is especially severe
coming as it does at the beginning of

Spassed through Welsh Wednesday en
route from Ileaumont, Texas, to New
Orleans. This is one of the heaviest
clean rice shliplments that have passed
over this rotad for somie time, and is
