Lovers of Shakespeare and all who
appreciate good reading are giving a
cordial welcome to the talented read
er, Mr. C. E. Griffith, now making his
third annual visit to Lafayette under
the auspices of the Department of
English Literature in the Southwest
ern Industrial Institutte. Indeed his
engagements here are now becoming
a complimentary distinction to our
school and whole community, for his
work has become so widely and favor
ably acclaimed that be is obliged to
decline many offers. He reads at the
leading state universities of the
country, including our own in Lou
isiana, at Brown University, at Ann
Arbor, at Notre Dame, at New York
City College and at colleges in Lon
don, at Eaton, Cambridge and Dublin,
winning genuine praise and return
engagements at each and all. Mr.
Griffith's reading is distiguished for
variety, refinement, dignity and im
pressiveness. He has the art that
exalts and the humanity that moves.
Most readers entertain only, but Mr.
Griffith teaches; he transmits the
philosophy of life as well as the
charm and beauty of poetry. And
yet there is such modesty and self
:effacement in his interpretations
that his audiences feel themselves in
direct relations with Shakespeare and
with Dante rather than with Griffith.
The second,half of Mr. Griffith's
week's engagement in Lafayette in
cludes Othello Monday night, lecture
on Shakespeare's Plays Tuesday
night, and Dante's Inferno Wednes
day night-all at the High School.
He will read at the Convent in Brous
sard Tuesday afternoon and at the
Industrial Institute Wednesday morn
ing at 10:30.

The Cane Crop.
It now appears quite evident that
the cold spell of some ten days ago
inflicted no damage on the cane crop,
the cutting down of the young
shoots by freezing temperatures not
being considered as detrimental.
Plant and stubble cane all showed
splendid evidences of vitality and
with the advent of the warmer weath
er which may now be expected a
splendid stand of cane will without
a doubt appear all over the Louisiana
sugar district. What the planters
chiefly desire right now is a good
soaking rain. We have had very light
rainfall since the beginning of 1911
and more moisture is in order.

A good sized audience, for Lent,
was present at the Jefferson Friday
night to winess "The Climax." The
story of the play briefly is that a
young girl from an interior town of
Ohio goes to the city to develop her
voice. She lives with her uncle and
his son who are music teachers. She
meets a young doctor who loves her,
but is prejudiced against a stage ca
reer for her. An operation is perform
ed on her throat to cure some slight
defect. The doctor through mental
suggestions makes her believe that
her voice is lost. She then cousents
to marry him. Later Just before the
ceremony he confesses that he de
ceived her. She renounces him and
the play closes. The dialogue is all
lively an entertaining, and the condi
tions allow for some very fine acting
which Miss Lona Stater, very satis
factorily used. Mr. Chas Darrak as
Pietro Golfanti, the son, was most ex
cellent as a hasty tempered yet with
al generous hearted boy. Mr. Clyde
Benson made a fairly good father, but
his very indistinct articulation was
anoying at times. Mr. John Ray
mond, as the doctor,, was not quite
as pleasing as he could have been,
though good enough not to mar the
very creditable presentation of a very
artistic and entertaining play.

Friday to have them examined for
leprosy. The examination was made

DUE TO HEART FAILURE
Was Death of Cleophas Trahan While
Hunting Near Vinton - Body.
The body of Cleophas Trahan who
was lost in the marsh while hunting
near Vinton was found Thursday by
Dave Johnson, an oil man, about two
miles from camp.
He found him lying upon his face
with his gun beneath him, just as he
had fallen while returneing to camp
There was no evidence of a struggle
as the unfortunate man had evident
ally not moved after falling to the
ground. All evidence corroborates
the doctor's verdict of heart failure
as the cause of his death.
The body was brought to Lafayette
and the funeral was held at 3 p. m.
Friday, attended by a large circle of
friends and members of the Wood
men to which lodge he belonged.
Mrs. J. A. Veazey, died suddenly

and Alcee Mouton, Messrs. Alcide and
Erwin Mouton and Danton, Sidney
and Gaston Veazey. Mrs. Veazey was
a lady of many estimable qualities
and she possessed a large number of
friends. Funeral services which were
largely attended were held Saturday at
4 p. m. at St. John's Catholic church.

as to its merits.
