Will Built, New Lumber Mill.
Rayville.--'. ('. Mengel of Louis
ville, Ky., has Seen in town for
several days making arrangements to
erect a large hardwood plant in this
town. Some few years ago Mengle
Brothers realized that Richland par
ish was the center of the great hard
wood timber section of the South and
they, being at that time interested In
several large mills in various sections
of the United States, thought it would
be a good investment to buy timber
lands in this parish, so they bought
several thousand acres, with the in
tention of manufacturing in the fu
ture. This timber has been increas
ing in value from year to year, but
these gentlemen knowing that the de
mand for the manufactured product
is very great, have decided to estab
lish a mill in Rayville under the
name of the Richland Lumber Com
pany. The mill will be located in 1he
eastern part of town and will cover
a tract of forty acres, 24 acres of
which was bought for $40 per acre,
and the remaining 16 acres for $75
per acre. They paid $500 for a right
of way three and one-half miles long
and 30 feet wide and will erect a rail
road and run a train from the mill
to the heart.of the forest. They have
13,000 acres of timber to draw from.
Part of the machinery is on the right
of way, the ground has been broken
and construction work will begin in
proper form at once.
Prominent Physican Killed by Youth.
Morgan ('ity.-Allen S. King, a
prominent physician of this city, was
shot and instantly killed by the 16
year-old son of the late Dr. Michael
Olivier last Friday. The shooting was
the result of ugly rumors circulated
about the city of an intimacy be
tween Dr. King and Miss Hazel Oliv
ler, a sister of the youth who commil
ted the deed. After firing two shots
into the body df his victim, young
Olivier calmly 'walked to the court
house, where he surrendered to Chie
of Police Robert Mailland. There
were no eye-witnesses to the tragedy.
The shooting occurred in the office
occupied by Dr. King on the second
floor of the First National Bank. Only
one witness saw young Olivier enter
the physician's office, but did not
hear what words, if any, passed be
tween the two. The two shots, fired
in rapid succession, caused many to
run in the direction of the bank in
time to see Olivier making his way
towards the court house. The physi
cian was found stretched upon the
floor in his waiting room. One bul
let entered the left breast, passea
through the lung -and tore away part
of the heart. He was still breath
ing when assistance reached him, but
expired after being placed on a couch.
Game Warden Resigns.
Shreveport.-Upon request of Frank
M. Miiller, president of the State
Game Commission, who claims con
ditions in Caddo parish are deplor:
able, a resignation as game warden
has been tendered, to take effect May
31, by Capt. William McD. Cawthon,
who agrees that "the fishing conu,
tions in this parish are deplorable,
but claims the reason they are so is
because the necessary assistance has
not been given him. Captain Caw
thon was appointed warden upon rec
ommendation of the local sportsmen
of the Caddo Fishing and Hunting
Club. In his letter to President Mil
ler he says he reaized for a long
time he was "persona non grata" with
the commission for political affilia
tions, and would have quit sooner had
it not been that his friends urged
him to hold the office, which, he
claims, cannot be properly filled by
one man. Caddo parish is one-filth
water and the fishermen easily dodge
the warden because he has no assist
ance and has to pay at least $6 a day
while trying to catch them' on the big
Attorney Appeals From Ruling.
Plaquemine.-In the district court
Judge C. K. Schwing presiding, a ne
gro named Jim Wright was convicted
on a charge of shooting with intent
to kill Frank Butler, colored, charged
with horse stealing, was allowed to
plead guilty to a charge of horse rid
ing. In the case of the State vs. J.
L Ferguson and Walter Marionneaux
charged with the killing of Rev. Leo,
a motion to quash the indictment in
this case was sustained by the court.
The district attorney has appealed
same to the supreme court.
Negro Drowned in swamp.
Houra -Joe Smith, a negro watch
man in the employ of the St. Louis
Cypress Company, Ltd., was drowned
in a swamp abourt 18 miles from here.
His body was found near his boat
next day, and his lantern, still light
ed, was in the boat.
Thought It the Judgtfent.
Fordoche.-Adele . Hawkins, a ne
gress, who had been -suffering from
heart disease for some time, was sit
ting on her front porch when she
saw a' strange white light sweeping
the eastern horizon. She and her fam
fly, thinking it was the "judgment
day light," became . panic-stricken.
Adele climbed intd~ her bed and when
the neighbors arrived she was found
dead. The light was the searchlights
of the battleship - Ml sisaippi, there at
anhol at Bayou Sara, 30 milAs away.
Vault For Land Records.
Baton Rouge.-Fred Grace, register
of the state land office, expects to let
the contract in the near future for
the building of the tire-proof vault,
in which are to be stored the land
records, which the United States gov
ernment is going to turn over to the
state. These revorlct are now in the
office of the surveyor general iu New
Orleans, but are to be transferred at
the direction of the United Siates
land commissioner at \Washington, to
Baton Rouge. Register Gacer was au
thorized by the State Board of Liqui
dation to expend $1,000 in fitting up
the fire-proof rooms, if this amount is
necessary. The presence of the Fed
eral land records in this city will
mean much to Baton Rouge, and will
bring a large number of people here
every month, who have to use the
records in tracing titles, etc.
Searchlight Powerful at 30 Miles.
Baton Rouge.-A striking evidence
of the power of the battleship Mis
sissippi to make its presence felt, al
though a good many miles away, was
given when the light from the search
light on the battleship at Bayou Sara
could be seen in Baton Rouge. That
hiie big, powerful searchlight could
throw its rays from Bayou Sara to
Baton Rouge, a distance of 30 miles,
is difficult to believe, but persons in
the Grouchy Hotel, sleeping on the
fourth floor and in the northern
rooms, were awakened by the light
from the battleship. The rays were
so powerful that they would light up,
with the brilliancy of the sun, any
object on which they hit, and make
ti:e room considerably brighter than
Duel Forfeits Insurance.
New Orleans.-A widow or heirs of
a man killed in a duel or a fight that
he has sought, according to a de
cision by the United States Court of
Appeals, cannot collect insurance on

Life Insurance Company for $100,u00.
Her husband, Dr. Franklin B. Maner
of Hill county, Texas, was shot and
killed in a street duel in 1905, by
E. E. Griffin, with whom he had quar
reled. The company contended that
the duel was precipitated by Maner.
The decision of the lower court was
in favor of the company and tle

Test Shows Oil Indications,
Covington.-W. H. Dummet, a min
eralogist and oil expert of Houston,
Tex., after a visit to lands west of
town where oil signs had been observ
ed, states that he found the lands
similar in many respects to Souf
Lakle, Batson and Saratoga. The
mound formation is a pronuonced fea
ture of surface indications and the
sand in the mounds gives unmistak
able evidence of the presence of oil.

BatOn Rouge.-That the Colorado
