Advertise in The Advertiser HORRIBLE CRIME. Whole Negro Family of Four Brutally Murdered While Asleep in Their Beds.

Saturday night a negro family consisting of Husband and wife, and two children were. brutally murdered in the Trahan and Doucet addition just beyond the railroad-track where it crosses Vermilion street, the victims of the murderer being Alexandre Andrus, his wife Mimi, his son Joachim aged 3 years and baby Agnes, eleven months old. The terrible crime was discovered at seven in the morning by the woman's brother, Lezime Felix, who gave the alarm. Sheriff Lacoste and other officers and Deputy Coroner Clark at once went to the scene. The man and wife and boy had been brained with an axe while sleeping in the bed, and then the baby, lying in its cradle was struck and its head crushed.

The man and woman were taken up by the murderer and placed on their knees beside the bed, the woman's arm over the man's shoulder, as if in the attitude of prayer. The baby was then placed beside mother on the bed. Then the murderer escaped throug the kitchen door where he had entered. The crime it is thought was commited after midnight, as an examination by Dr. Clark disclosed some slight warmth in the bodies.

A coro. ner's jury was held which for want of evidence brought in a verdict of death by unknown party. Sheriff Lacoste and the officers suspected an escaped lunatic from Pineville by the name of Garcon Godfry. They learned from the mother, whom they arrested, that Godfry was at Maurice. Deputy Peck and Officer Edwin Campbell went out and got him, but were unable to connect Wvith the crime as parties at Maurice testified to his having been there all the time.

They brought him back and placed him in jail to return to the asylum. Sheriff Lacoste and the officers are making every effort to discover the terrible criminal. Several arrests have been made in connection with the case, but the Sheriff has nothing positive to give out yet. About two months ago a fam.ly of negroesconsisting of fath. er, mother, and child was murdered under similar circumstances at Crow.

ley, and about a year and a half ago a negro family of four, man, wife and two children were killed manner at Rayne. The crimes are so alike that they may be the work of the same terrible monster. An attack of grip is often followed by a persistent cough, which to many proves a great annoyance. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been extensively used and with good results for the relief and cure of this cough. Many cases had been cured after all other remedies had failed.
