GOAT RETURNED TO OWNER
Philip Bommarito Wins Civil Suit to
Philip Bommarito has been given
possession of the goat for which he
Instituted civil proceedings in the local
courts some time ago, making Joseph
puartano the defendant. Judge Maher,
who decided the case on Monday, or
dered the defendant to turn the goat
over to Bommarito or to pay him $5
in lieu thereof. In addition the defend
ant was also ordered to pay plaintiff
$10 as damages for the "illegal and
frontier process" which he resorted to
to gain possession of the animal.
Judge Maher said that he considered
that Quartano emulated the frontiers
men of old, who herded animals and
drove off with them, irrespective of
ownership. On the point relative to
the "kids," Judge Maher was silent.
He said that that point was not an is
sue, according to the petition, and that
in giving judgment he had confined
himself to the written allegations of
the plaintiff. The evidence at the trial
of the suit went to show that while the
goat was in possession of Quartano
there we. e two additions to the family.
OCTOBER 9 PROCLAIMED BY THE
Calls On People to Clean Up Premises
and Remove Trash.
Gov. Hall has proclaimed October 9
"Fire Prevention Day" in Louisiana.
The mayors of all cities and towns
throughout the state have been re
quested, through the office of the fire
marshal of Louisiana, to issue procla
mations in their respective localities
along the lines suggested in the proc.
lamation of the Governor.
The Governor cites in his proclama
tion that fire losses in the country
amount to more than a quarter of a
billion dollars each year, and fire is
the cause of one of the greatest drains
upon the wealth and resources of the
nation. He names the day, October. 9,
because it is the anniversary of the
great Chicago fire. He earnestly
urges the people of the state to observe
this day by a thorough cleaning up
and removal of all rubbish, trash and
waste from their premises; that all
flues and heating apparatus be in
spected and made safe for the winter.
He also recommends that the various
public institutions of the state and
semi-public institutions, such as facto
ries and theaters, look after the sate
ty of their establishments. He also ad
vises fire drills in public schools.
A DIFFICULT OPERATION.

Dodson, of Goodman, Miss. He was
seriously injured about five months
kgo, the injury being confined to the
ankle and leg, a compound fracture.
After a recent examination it was
found that in order that the young man
get the use of his leg again he must be
sent here for the purpose of undergo

the physicians that the operation was
very successful and that the young
man will return to his home within a

Wednesday morning at 5:30 o'clock,
at a nuptial mass in the Church of the
Holy Name of Mary, the marriage of
August Mayer and Miss Estelle Ramos
took place in the presence of relatives
and friends. The bride, who was given
away by her father, looked lovely in
her robe of white French crepe trim
med with Irish point lact with hat to
match. She carried a pearl prayer
book. The bridal attendant, a cousin
of the bride, Miss Josephine Langford,
looked pretty in her costume of white
French crepe and Irish point lace. She
wore a hat to match and carried a
The bride was met at the chancel
by the groom and his best man, Chas.
Roome. The sacred edifice was deco
rated with palms and ferns and the
altar was brilliantly illuminated with
waxen tapers and electric lights. The
impressive ceremony was performed by
the Rev. Father Cassagne. After the
ceremony, the bridal party proceeded
to the home of the bride's parents in
Bouny street, where a wedding break
fast was served. After the breakfast
the charming young bride donned a
chic lavender tailor-made traveling
suit with hat to match, and the young
couple left for a trip to points on the
Gulf coast. On their return they will
go to housekeeping in Slidell avenue
near Teche street, where they will be
at home and pleased to see their many
friends Tuesdays and Fridays.
The young couple received many
handsome and costly presents.

Poet's Lot a Hard One.
The lives of poets in this callous
world have ever been characterized
by misery and now a New York man
is charged with a modern and most
ingenious cruelty to an unfortunate

Ornaments Last Longest.
Ornaments last longer than any
thing else that man makes. There are
brooches and necklaces in museums
more than 40 centuries old. Monu
ments, perhaps, stand second, and
houses third. The life of furniture is
shorter still. There is very little fur
niture in England which dates be
yond the year 1500. Pictures last long
er than furniture, and there are paint
ings still in fair condition which have
weathered six centuries of life.
