Ice Company Elects Directors.
The board of directors of the Don

office of the president at 1 o'clock p;
m. last Sunday with a majority of the
members in attendance. A handsome
dividend was declared and the affairs
of the organization were found to be
in first-class shape. President S.
Goette was authorized to institute ar
rangements for increasing the capacity
of the factory from 30 to 50 tons of ice
per day, and numerous other improve
ments were discussed and decided
upon. At 4 o'clock Monday afternoon
the annual meeting of the stockholders
took place, with a large proportion of
the shares represented either in person
or by proxy. The present board of
directors, consisting of S. Goette, Dr.
J. D. Hanson, L. E. Bentley, H. C.
Braud, V. Maurin, John W. Tucker
and A. D. Vega, Sr., was re-elected
by a unanimous vote, as in former

re-elected to their respective positions.

Railroad Smash-up at Belle Helene.
At about 6:30 o'clock Wednesday
morning a fast passenger train on the
Mississippi Valley Railroad known as
the "Memphis Express" ran into a
train of empty cane cars on Belle
Helene plantation, in the upper portion
of this parish, completely demolishing
three of the cane cars and causing a
suspension of traffic for a period of
several hours. The cane train, the
property of the Belle Helene Planting
and Manufacturing Co., was crossing
the railroad tracks when the fast train
came thundering along and crashed
into it. A heavy fog prevailed at the
time and made it practically impossi
ble for the accident to be averted. No
one was injured.

Gondran Theater Formally Opened.
The handsome new Gondran Theater
at the corner of Railroad avenue and
Iberville street was formally opened
last Sunday night, when the Louisi
ana English Grand Opera Company,
of New Orleans, presented Von
Flotows' melodious ballad opera,
"Martha, or the Fair at Richmond."
A large and representative audience
was in attendance, and the perform
ance may be said to have given gen
eral satisfaction. The work of the
principals was quite good, and the
manner in which the play was staged,
while simple, was entirely satisfactory.
Miss Rose Sheldon as "Martha" and
H. Miester as "Plunkett" delineated
their respective roles with- pleasing
sang froid and conspicuous ability,
Mr. Miester's comedy work being par
ticularly excellent. Miss Mollie
Blanchard as "Julia" came in for
a fair share of popular approval,
and Lew Sully's "Lionel" was good
as to singing, but somewhat weak as
to everything else. Mr. Coyle's "Sir
Tristram" and Mr. Archie Campbell's
"Sheriff of Richmond" were accepta
ble. The chorus was unsightly and
amateurish, but, having little to do, did
not detract from the success of the
A pretty incident occurred at the
beginning of the third act, when Dis
trict Attorney G. A. Gondran, after
whom the playhouse is named, was
called to the stage and presented with
a handsome silver loving cup as a
token of esteem from a number of his
friends in this community. The pre
sentation speech was made by Hon.
R. N. Sims, and the surprised re
cipient responded with a few "well
chosen words of sincere gratitude and
appreciation. The cup stands about
twelve inches high, and was manu
factured by a leading New Orleans
jeweler. On one side is engraved: "In
token of the admiration and regard of
his friends-R. N. Sims, D. Israel,
Jr., L. A. Landry, Jr., W. D. Park,
A. J. Harding, Paul Leche, F. K.

D. Dalferes. A. D. Vega, Sr., Dr. E.
K. Sims, Jas. Von Lotten, S. H. St.
Martin, J. R. Duke, R. McCulloh, H.
O. Maher." The following inscrip
tion appears on the other side: "Our
progressive citizen, Hon. G. A. Gon
dran. Nov. 4, 1906."
The Gondran Theater is built of
brick, with an imposing pressed-brick
front, and is modern and complete in
every detail. It was erected hby the
Donaldsonville Realty Co., Ltd., at a
cost of approximately $30,000, and has
a seating capacity of 600. The stage
is equipped with the latest and best
appliances known to the theatrical
world, and the furnishings through
out are tasty and attractive.
Elmo D. Cire, formerly of Donald
sonville, but for the past several years
a resident of New Orleans, and Miss
Lydia Aucoin, the attractive daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. K. A. Aucoin of St.
Emma plantation, were married at the
local Catholic church at 10 o'clock a.
m. Tuesday, the 6th inst., Rev. J. M.
T. Massardier ofliciating. The bride
was attended by her sister, Miss Edith
Aucoin, and H. Cabel, of New Orleans,
acted as best man. The other attend
ants were: Misses Armide Bouche- 1
reau, Jacinta Sobral and Eleanor
Courreges, bridesmaids; Adolph Au
coin, Sabin Dalferes and James Au
coin, groomsmen; Peter Wilbert, of t
Plaquemine, and Bertrand Braud, of
New Orleans, ushers. After the cere
mony the bridal party repaired to the
hospitable Aucoin home on St. Emma
plantation, where a sumptuous repast
was served and a pleasant time en
joyed. Subsequently Mr. and Mrs.
Cire left for their future home in New
Orleans, taking with them the cordial
good wishes of a host of friends in
this community, among whom The
Chief is glad to be counted.
Jasmin Tobias went to New Orleans
Tuesday, the 31st ult., and at the auc
tion of the effects of the Donaldson
ville Cooperage Co., held in the Cres
cent City on that day, bought in for
Vigilant Hose Company the fine bay
horse formerly owned by the defunct
corporation, and which will be used
by the Vigilants in drawing their new
hose wagon. The animal is well-fitted
for the purpose, being large, strong
and gentle, and can doubtless be eas- f
ily trained as a fire horse. It is the
intention of the Vigilants to put down
bitulithic in their hall i~ Railroad
avenue and to fit up a Rall in the t
building where the horse will be kept, I
and also to keep a man there contin
.ually, so that the company can imme
diately respond to an alarm. A com
mittee will be appointed at the com
pany's next meeting to solicit funds to
defray the expenses of these improve
ments and its task will doubtless be
made light by the liberality of the
protected property owners.
The Married Women's Whist Club
was very delightfully entertained Wed
nesday afternoon by Mrs. F. B.
Lemann at her lovely home in Hou
mas street. - The club prize, an ex
quisite hand-embroidered cuff and t
collar set, was awarded to Mrs. G.
B. Renss, while the guest prize, a
pair of dainty hat pins, was captured 1
by Miss Clare McCormick. During
the afternoon refreshing beverages were
served, and at the conclusion of the
games a delicious little lun heon was
1 partaken of. Those who enjoyed the
gracious hospitality of the charming
young hostess were: Mesdames E. C.
Watben, G. A. Gondran, J. M. Fen
lon, E. K. Sims, G. B. Reuss, R. N.

I Castagnos Cane Loader
The One That Does the Work and
Saves the Floney
I 1ANY PLANTERS during the past two seasons have bought cane loaders
of different makes, only to be disappointed with results; have worked
them a abort time, laid them aside, and gone back to hand loading. This ex
perience makes it hard to sell loaders, even The Castagnosewhich the judgam
at Audubon Park, July 4, pronounced to bave "great merit ;" but in cane load
ers. like everything else, merit. when accompanied by usefulness and great
money-saving power, will win in the long run. Notwithstanding former draw
backs we are selling loaders to many progressive discerning planters, who
realize that the days of freak and experimental cane loaders are over, and we
have at last got down to the real thing that will make hand loading a thing of
Our loader is not built by contract, but in our own shop at
Donaldsonville (Port Barrow), under the direct iupervlsion
of J. B. Castagnos, the inventor, a practical mechanic.
Only the best material is used, and the workmanship is of he kind that when
we sell a loader it will stay sold and be the means of selling more.
We furnish no blue prints nor give you days of work erecting our loaders; but.
we erect and work them on your plantation, and guarantee them to load 135
tons of cane each daily in 20-ton cane.
We invite all planters, managers and people interested to call at our shop aid
examine the construction of the Castagnos Loader, and we feel that after a
careful inspection we can convince you that we have the only loader, one
that will pay you to buy even this short-crop season, and do away with hand
loading or discard back number failures. Respoefully.
