Wm. E. Evans, of Truxno vicinity, has been missing for about fifteen days and it is thought that he and a companion were drowned in the Ouachita river near Lake Landing. They started out in a skiff, presumably to get a barrel of whiskey for a blind tiger operator, and nothing has been seen of them since in that vicinity. Their boat was found capsized, but no trace of the men, hence it is supposed they were drowned. Moral — He who monkeys with blind tiger liquor may be getting in drowning water.
