The heavy storm that started up last t
Saturday evening about seven o'clock, i
was otne of thie worst kind of etorms,
ani it felt Iuke a young tornado, the
war houses were shakeing. It was ac
companied by lightning, rain, hall and I
wind, the hail being as large as part- r
ridge eggs The wind and rain lasted e
until nearly morning, and we learn
that some of our citizens did not re.
tire until they were certaii, that it was I
over. We have heard of no damage
being done except fences and trees
that were blown down.
The steam yacht *'Surf" left New
Orleans on Monday to go as high tiup

of his friends. The yacht has just re
turned from a long cruise. She is 200
feet over all, with a beam of 26 feet
and draws 13 feet. The yacht should
pass here to-day, andti we hope the
owner will stop at this point so that our
citizens can take a look at her.
Mr. Phil McGuire, imetmber of the
police jury, infornmed us on Tuesday I
that the town autihorities and the I
Police Jury would go in together and
plant willows in front of town, so as

Scrownis of the levees are washed
alimost away by the high waves, and if
willows were plauted aloig lie levees
it woull lie a great protection from
this cause. We are glad to see that
this will be done.
