Fisher, whose announce ment will be found in another column of this issue, in seeking the nomina tion for coroner to succeed himself, offers to the people his past official record as the best recommendation he can give, as to what he will do if re elected. He has now held the office to which he aspires to be reelected, for four years and has shown himself to be a conscientious and efficient official, do. ing his duty at all times and whenever possible, avoiding unnecessary ex pense to the parish. The Doctor's record is open and above board and he in vites a careful inspection of the same by the voters of this parish. Dr. Fisher who is a native of Washington parish, is the son of one of the sturdy planters of that parish, DRILLING'AT WELSH. C. E. Smith of Port Arthur, Tellh About Exploitation There-Is Go. Ing Down Deep After It. That a deep pay oil stratum exists in the Welsh, La., oil field, the samI as at Jennings and Anse La Butte, which can be developed and a greal oil field brought in, is the belief of C. E. Smith, a well known citizen oi Port Arthur, who is now drilling Ir the Welsh field. Mr. Smith passed through the city last evening, being en route from a visit to Port Arthur to Louisiana. "I have been drilling a well ai Welsh for some time," said Mr. Smith, "and the prospects for Ibring ing in a flowing will at a great depth are very flttering. We bailed the well Saturday at a depth of about I, 700 feet, but the results were not sat isfactory and we have decided to drill deeper. There are at present about eight oil wells in the IWelsh field, but they all draw their supply from shallow depths, and their ag gregate production is not consider able. "It is well known that the great gushers in the Jennings field were de veloped from the deeper strata, and the coming in of the Anse La Butte field, with the deep wells drilled by the Lake Oil Co., shows that the same is true of that field. "I believe that the deep stratum at Welsh can be profitably developed and the well now being drilled will be sunk to a much greater depth if oil is not sooner encountred." Mr. Smith says there is no doubt the Anse La Butte field being in, and that already there is a rush of oil men to the scene to begin development, the Beaumont oil men, as usual, being in the van of the procession.-l1eaumott Enterprise. and lived upon the farm until he Lwas twenty-five years old. In the spring of 1895 he wasl graduated from the medical department of Tulane Uni versity. After practicing medicine in Franklin for five years, he moved to Lake Charles, where he has resided ever since. Four years ago he ran against Dr. Watkins for the olhce of coroner and won with a majority of 633 votes. He now has a large prac tice in Lake Charles, where he is recognized as one of the leading physicians of the city. Thanksgiving Supper For benefit of Uniform Rank W '0. W. at Welsh Camp 176, Nov. 28, 1907, in tne Bell building. rhild Burned to ieath at Sulphuln Sunday Morning. Sunday morning between the hourl of nine and ten, the residence of Mr. and Mrs. RIudolph Trahan was burned to the ground and their seven-month's. old baby was burned to death. Mrs. Trahan had left the baby to. ,,ether with two older children, in the house, the baby lying near the stove, while she went out to look after the cow. While she was away the older children got hold of the gasoline can and in some way it became ignited and upon the mother's return some time later, she found the room in which the children bad been left in veloped In flames. She rushed for the door, but as she opened it a part of the burning roof fell upon the baby, making rescue impossible. Mrs. Trahan herself, was badly burned upon the face and arms. The other two children escaped in safety. The building and contents are a complete loss as Mr. Trahan did not carry any insurance. There is a moral to this, which all ought to see: that tire, small cbildren and gasoline or kerosene make a com bination that are sure to tproduee dis asterous results. Seed oats at Jones Bros.
