Rough oin Roydite.
Mri. C. A. Ma Iner, a traveling
stIesman from New (rieans is repirted
having barely escaped with hi lie last
Thursdac, whilst endeavoring to ex
plore a very dangerous mud hole that
graces the entrance to the town of
RIoyille, when approached frond this
direction. Mr. Magner, his teamster,
vehicle and baggage were transformed
into one hetefogenotis mass, and, -for a
time, the entanglement was so great
it seemed doubtful that they ,would
emerge from the bog-hole alive. 'to.
tolerate the existence of so -dangerous
an abyss as this one is represented to
be, especially within a stone-throw of
of the heart of the-town of Royville,
evidences a degree of indifference on'
the part of some one that amounts
to criminal negligence. The good
people of our sister-town should adopt
steps to immediately remove further
occasion for such condennatory re
marks as this bog-hole has been call-:

Despite the inclemency of the

inslant,a large number of people hied
themselves to Eunice to attend the
great auction sale of lots. At Eunice
the rain that had fallen several hours
before the arrival of the last excur
ursion train, left very little trace of
itself, so that to all inteuits and pur
poses the 12th. was a fair day for the
auction sale. The bidding was quite
spirited at times, with the result that
several of the most desirable lots of
fered commanded most high figures.
We witnessed the sale of a very con
siderble number of lots all of which
brought quite full prices, we thought.
The principal investors hailed from
New Orleans, and purchases,generally,
impressed us as being for purposes of
speculation, and not for immediate
improvement. We were well pleased
with the lay :nd ariangenient of
Eunice. The grading of the streets
was especially good, all the thorough
fares being decidedly broad and in
viting. Several buildings, thi-ee of
wilch are two stories high, already
dot the plat of ground. A 20-room
hotel, a good size general store,
a drug store and other minor avoca
tions are in full operation and, no
doubt Eunice has come to stay, es
pecially as it is surrounded by a great
expanse of very good tillable lands.
We remember seeing the following
representatives of Lafayette at
Eunice on the day of the auction
sale: Mayor Wim. Campbell, Town
marshall John Vigneaux, Sheriff
I. A. Broussard, Jailor Riebert Bil
