Sixty Convicts on Model Road. tli
IMansfield.-A few days sinc the g
committee in charge of the construc- it
tion of the model road near this 01
place. decided that with the same t
guards and attendants they could o
work ten additional convicts, with ,.
only the cost of feeding them added
to the expense bill, and so wrote C
Governor' Sanders, and within three
days the additional convicts arrived
from Baton Rouge, and they are now
D working 60 men instead of so50. This
experiment was undertaken by a num
ber of public spirited citizens to
test, at their own expense, the actual
,e cost of building a model road. and
Sthe governor seems to be determined
' that they shall have a fair chance
to test the matter. The first mile
was over a red clay bill-the highest
C- point in the state--which was -cut
re down about six feet for 500 feet, and
a fill made in the valley of about the
same dimensions. The soil was red
he clay and very hard, and had to be
to broken up with three yoke of oxon.
Ad. and the test was a severe one. The

neers are being strictly followed by

Mexican Fleas Damaging Cotton.
Logansport.-Farmers repo# that tL
a new pest, known as the Mexi
can flea, has apDieared in great num
bers in their fields and that they i
are doing more damage to the cotton d
than the boll weevils. It attacks the
new squares on the cotton plants
and causes each one that it bores
into to die and drop off. The insect
is described as being a small brown
1 bug about the size of a lightning bug
in two sections of about equal sizes.
The head part is almost as long as
the body section. The name flea is
c given it for the reason that when
it moves it hops like an ordinary ilea.,
is only it can hop a much greater dis
1e tance. Very little is known of the
d origin and habits of this bug. From
h reports received from the farmers
'd who have discovered the fleas in their
te cotton crops, the indications are that
it will prove to be equally as hard
ed to exterminate as the boll weevil.

Minden.-Fire destroyed the plan

About 200,000 feet of lumber was
burned, besides 14 box cars standing
on the .siding, seven of them filled
with lumber. Sixteen planing ma

of the fire is unknown, but is believ
