HOUMA. Watery Grave Found by Liseier Fanch. Houma. La., Nov. 16. Liseler Pauch, a Frenchman and a stranger, was drowned In ths bayou Terrebonne, opposite the Lower Terrebonne Refinery, sltxeen miles below Houma. Last night Pauch, In company with two companions, had been drinking wine very freely. On their way to the refinery they had to cross a bridge, the middle spaa of which was open, but a plank had been placed across the opening. The two companions crossed over safely, but Pauch fell into the Terrebonne. Yesterday morning between 4 and 5 o'clock, William Owens, a negro laborer, while at work in John D. Shaffer's Ardoyne sugar-bouse, in this pariah, fell into a tank of hot syrup and was so badly burned that he died two hours later. The negro's home is near Harvey's canal, in Jefferson pariah. A great many tramps have put in an ap-, pearance in town and about the neighboring country, and are becoming very troublesome.
