Mr. Crow Girard, represent

in ourlocal politics, was in New
Orleans this week accompanied
by Mr.Jules J.Mouton. It willbe
remembered that Mr.Girard had
filed before the State CentralCom
mittee a motion for a rehearing
of the contest originally won by
the Broussard-Scranton faction
before the Executive Committee.
The matter was simplified by
the action of Mr. Girard in with

ANNE LABUTTE OIL FIELD. a
Goov. Hogg, (:eln. Miles and Mr.
Irunek's Visit. S
Mr. Bruck, an oil expert from I'1
Boston, and special guest of h
Gen. Miles and Gov. Hogg on r
their trip through the oil terri
tory of Southeast Texas and
Southwest Louisiana, was-inter- C
viewed by a representative of the 0
Gazette last night at the Cres- t
cent News Hotel. Mr. Bruck p
said the party visited the various
centres of oil activity in the two
states-Beaumont, Sour Lake, r
Jennings, Welsh and Crowley- t
concluding their tour of investi- t
gation in the Anse Labutte oil t
field; that the latter is by far the
most promising territory visited, P
and that the party did not leave a
this field without first purchas- 1i
ing several hundred acres of n
what they considered the finest s
oil land in the world, Mr. Bruck
himself purchasing one hundred V
acres from Mr. J. C. Nickerson, t
real estate agent. These gentle- a
men leased also some two thous- I
and acres on their trip through a
the oil region.
In answer to the question as
to the quality of the oil, he said c
that it was equal if not superior c
to any found, particularly for
lubricating purposes; that it
could be used in the crude state
without refining on railroad t
kernels and for heavy ma-i
chinery; that he had made both
a physical test and chemical analy
sis which compelled him to the
above conclusion. In a word, no
oil field offered such flattering1
and tempting prospects to the t
Great praise was given to Mr. i
J. C. Nickerson for his enter
prise and thrift in bringing
these gentlemen here and show- I
ing them over the country. Mr. 1

appreciation of Mr. Nickerson's
efforts, and spoke highly of the 1

Attendance Growing I)ally
Now Twenty-five Per Cent.
Greater than on the
Sanne Date Unit
Every prospect is favorable
for the largest attendance ever
enrolled at the Industrial Insti
stitute; the number at present
(146) being about twienty-five per
cent greater than the numberE
enrolled on the same date of last <
session. Before the end of the
session last year the number
reached 182; and at the same
rate of increase the number this
session would reach 22tlor more. 1
This is conclusive evidence of a I
normal and steady growth and 1
is highly gratifying to the friends I
and patrons of the Institute.
Two important considerations
should be taken into account, I
however, in any review of the I
growth of the school in attend- 1
ance. These are, first, the need of I1
a dormitory for boys; and, sec
ond, the necessity of holding up
the educational standard of the
Scourses of study at a point where
they will be worthy of compar- I
ison with those of the best sec
ondary schools of the State and
of the whole country. As to the
first of these matters, it is only
a question of a little time. The
next session of the General As
sembly will doubtless be led to
see this need ana to supply it.
Then, of course, the necessity of l
holding up the standard to proper 1
requirements has been in the I
way of an even more rapid in- i
crease in numbers. Hundreds I
of candidates for admission to
the various courses have had to
prepare a little further in the
public schools before dbeing quite
ready to dd'firii3Wi wor3kt-at
the Institute. And the Insti
tute has in this way contributed I
to growth in attendance in the
public schools, stin.atting them
and helping them. Far-sighted i
leaders in the public-educational 1
movement of our community and r
section have constantly had in F
view the need of so developing
the elementary schools all round
as to make the opportunities the
Industrial Institute offers more
available to all.
Miss Frances Ware Blocker,
of Marshall, Texas, has been
compelled to resign her appoint
ment as teacher of Art at the
Institute, on account of serious
trouble with her eyes. In her
I place Miss Lillie A. Guedry, of
New Orleans, has been appointed.
Miss Guedry, who like Miss
Blocker is a graduate of New
comb Art School, has arrived at
the Institute and has taken
charge of her classes with great
interest and earnestness.
In the Domestic Science de
partment a course in basketry
has been organized by Miss
Riis, open to both boys and girls.
SThe class is greatly interested in
the work and has already turned
out some very useful specimens
of that art.

A l)naugerous MIonth.
This is the month of coughs,
b colds and acute catarrh. Do you
- catch cold easily? Find yourself
hoarse, with a tickling in your
throat and an annoying cough at
night? Then, you should always
have handy, a bottle of Ballard's
Horehound Syrup. J. A. An
derson, 354 West 5th St. Salt

lard's Horehound Syrup for
coughs and colds. It gives im
, mediate relief. We know it's
- the best remedy for these
I troubles. I write this to induce
, other people to try this pleasant
and efficient remedy." 25c, 50c

feats pale into insignihcance. ruts rteati'P
is Iiavolo,, the world-famous performer who
loops the loop on a bicycle going at the ter- a
rific rate of sixty miles an hour. From a
point in the extreme height of the canvas r
dome I)iavolo makes a thrilling dash down r
an incline plane one hundred and ten feet
long and then like a lightning flash makes a F
revolution in mid-air on his wheel. On the
sarme scientific principle that a person
swings a bucket tilled with water in a circle r
without spilling the contents, Dinvolo loops I
the loop on a bicycle. It is necessary to n
attain sufficient velocity to overcome the
natural force of gravitation. Notwithstand
ing the fact that looping the loop is a prac- I
tical demonstration of recognized scientific
laws, it is equally true that Diavolo is today ]
the only man in the world who has ever t
accompliahed tais remarkable feat, althoughI
several have attemtnpted it and invariably
met with serious injury.

The report is that the two men

who is a man of small stature.
Roger warned hts assaillant to
desist and failing to do this,
Roger shot at him three times,
two of the shots taking effect.

diately. Roger surrendered to
