tib lorer iouse of Congress on the 7th
padera a npension of the rules. The do
tractorofe B Cq gretsman Blanchard who
-have charged him with mismanage

peace. He has proved himself quite
equalto the oceasion and has success
fuily engineered this, the most im

The contest for the two Senatorial
togas the Louisiana legislature has at
its disposal is now well on at Baton
Rouge. If the TELEGRAtPH had a vote
it would be cast for Gibson, the bril
liant and indefatigible friend of the
Mississlppi river, and Jonas, the true
and tried Democrat and the painstak
ing and assiduous legislator. They fill
the bill to a dot and in the TELE
GOAPW'S humbe opinion can accom
plish more for Louisiana than any
other two men we could send to the
Senate. This so because, more than
a·y otber two men In Louisiana, they
are In thorough accord with President
Cleveland, possessing his entire con

I guasily, Pyruld lale), and like the ap T
Sple ieasilly transplanted and bears fruit S
,to perfection in cultivated gardens as
well as in its native swamps. Unlike 1o
the apple it is subject to no tisects, no T,
n brer-as it is often almost submerged
Sain water. Its only eiemy is late frosts e
fa which now and then cuat the crop short.
SIt has no off year and every year a good a
Scrop may be expected unless, as before
statsd, a late frost occurs. The fruit is N
extremely acid and can: be eaten only N
when mellow ripe. The aroma far ex.
eeeds that of the apple and the color
surpasses the yellow and rd red of a Sam. N
mert ueen. The fruit will only keep N
in a few days afler ripening and must be N
N
i utilized immediately. It blooms in
0* February, maturing fruit rapidly after
e casting the petals and ripens the first
- of May, hence the name-May-haw. N
S0 The fruit of May-haw is about the N
DO size of an English cherry and the trees
arI great bearers. It is used in mak- N
log Jelly and tarts, the Jelly made fromt
an the Juice having no superior even in

REPORT OF 'CHOOL cOMtnITTEr..
To the Mayor and Council of the City of
Monroe:
Gentlemen-Your committee beg to re
port, That the schools of Monroe continue
to be second to none in the State. They are
strictly graded-the course extending over
3der a term of eight years. A printed pro
gramme of the grade-work is annexed and
un- made part of this report, with the request
that it be published lherewlth.
During the term beginning October 3d,
1887, to date, there have matriculated in the
fromu schools 858 pupils, asfollows: In the white
male school 97; in the white female school
'sic- 118; in the Kindergarten 35; in the colored
mixed school 113. The average attendance
during April was 243.
iint- We have been able at all times to meet
all obligatons promptly, and turn over to
y our successors $1,79l.72 cash of school lunds
y as shown by the treasurers' report.
the There have been employed during the
present term. to date, eight teachers at an
At average salary ot fifty dollars per month.
I have, as chairman of your committee.
collected from scholars attending our
th a school from abroad, tuition amounting to
de three hundred and twenty-two dollars
n which has been paid into the treasury. It
is to be regretted that want of proper school
buildings does not permit that the schools
out be opened tuition free to all comers-as it
is we charged the nominal sum of two dol
rked lars per month for each scholar.
The school buihldings, three in number,
with are old-especially are those for the white
3ride children very old and inadequate to the
purposes for which they are used. They
arebadly overcrowded, but in as fair con
dittion as could be expected.
e- sincerely trust that our successors will
not retire from office two years hence with
th out having made due provision to erect a
building with all modern Improvements
xtre- capable of accommodating not less than
live hundred white boys and girls. My ex
prte rience leads me to the conclusiou that to
lie. be most effective, the "old-field lschool"
UIKE. idea is best-let the boys and girls attend
school together. We in Monroe and also
the schools of New Orleans are behind the
a. ge in this respect. There is no good rea
son to be urged against mixed schools-and
Cal- all theso-calted arguments smack strong
Slyofprnrlentpruder. It is probable that
thre apparent dacline k chivalrous respect
the in the yonuth ofd to-d towaerds womanhood
may be an outcome of this false idea of ex
n to clusive education as to the sexes. It is
r of high timeonroe Monroe went back thirty years
to a more enlightened estimate of boygs and
gIrls-such a backward stop will be in reali
ty a long stride towards keeping up with
res- the advancieng army of enlightment.
nas C me years ago, by permission o1 the
hCity Council, the .present sentool.
commttee invesrted i lla house ant lot in
chit Monroe to create a reserve fund for school
legs purposest. The property having beon rent
ton ed rene tiuse at twent-uliec dollars n er
month-was In 1883 sold on long creuit.

rC. alizod was liaced in the School fulnd of our
in- treasury. The nett prolits ol the invest
anent were about one thousachd ooll'8 in
er- little over five years.
ropsThis committee had the honor to organ
ize the Monroe schools as now constituted
in the Smmner and Fall of 10. As here
o in inbeforestated thu ote ull course is one of
nesr reight years-the first class to finishr the
'lear- course will graduate June 29th next. We
sincerely trust that our successora i ofic.
will see to it, that the gradulating exercises
sta. shall reflect credit on our schools.
pride In conclusion, your comitte cau itl,
ort pride repinguish int tote hands of our sutm
cebors the destinlesof the schools. We do
not fear, knowing who will constitute the
rnew city coLncii, that our schools will be
pwtermited to languish. We respectfully
upggest to the enltloemn who w ill to-nlor
and row asummneour duties, that it is not enough
