The Fire Company.
Pursuant to call issued a large number of
our citizens let in the court house on last
Tlucs.lay evening, for tile purpose of organ
izing a fire compalny. Mr. Crow Girard called
the meeting to order, and in a few words
stated the object of thle nlecting, and called
upon iMayor Campbell to act as temlporary
chairman. Mr. A. C. Ordlway was called

After a g 'naral discils.;ion it was decided
that the best course to Ipursue would be to

Timses are so dull that it is quite a task to
pick up any notes worthy of publication,
hence our long silence. Perhaps it is due
to the excessive rail, falls which have so
duumfounded farmers and others, that nobo

o'clock in the morning, The long duration
it is claimmed was due to the melody of the
music which was so charming that the guests
eveln as the mouse which was charmed into

sufficiency of the force the Governor will be
appealed to to call out the State militia as
a precautionary measure-the life of the
umpire must be preserved.
A feature that should call out vociferous
applanse will be in the costumes-each play
er will be clad in a dlifferent colored attire.
Ample seating capacity will be provided,
but if by some unforeseen circumstance
there should not be enough to accommodate
all, no objection will be made to the men
standing up, or reclining against a post-if

One can scarcely imagine the large

For the purpose of illustration take tihe
Stafford Spring waters-so thoroughly ad
vertised. To look at it has a clear limpid
appearance, similar to the eye as the Beau

son to doubt that the Stafford water possess,
as claimed, medicinal virtue. We know,
from a partial analysis made that the Bean
sejour water has some,-perhaps as much
as the Stafford.
Again, the sulphur springs in Arkansas
are much sought, in a word it is a Mecca for
those suffering from certain ailments. Here
in Lafayette is a spring with a thick coat
ing of an oily substance emitting a strong
odor of sulphur. It is not inpossible that
this spring may possess as much excellence
as those of Arkansis.
Again, the Babin spring water is strongly
impregnated with iron, and perhaps other
substances that might give it much efficacy,
especially where iron is recommended.
There are many other springs in this vicini
ty which if properly exploited might show
The Stafford water is put up in five pints
glass jars. These jars probably cost, at
wholesale, six or eight cents apiece. The
expense of bottling can not cost much over
one cent per bottle, and transportation to
this place we would place at ten cents, mak
ing a total of nineteen cents. What the
local merchant pays per bottle we have no I
the means of knowing but the retail price, I
we believe, is seventy-five cents each, and
there are thousands of bottles sold at I
this price throughout the country.
The Gazette can see no reason why the
various Spring waters of the Parish of La- i
f fayette shoul$ not be placed on the market.
e The Gazette further, can see no reason
why a sanitarium could not be erected near
the sulphur springs, and be operated with
