Messrs. Graham Tempel and Jim

they were not hurt in the wreck, A
Sunday night. They both went on
the excursion to New Orleans, but it
neither were on the train for the re- P
turn. Graham became sick while in g
the city and took the first train for ti
home, while Mr. Aubic remained in re
the city. Considerable uneasiness
was felt here for the safety of the V
latter until word was received that
he had not left the city on the ill-fat

A casual stroll through Bayou Sara w
shows many improvements going on. B
Many houses have been repainted Cl
and otherwise repaired and look even th
better than they did before the re- se
cent flood. The small office building 60
on Principal street, formerly used for IM
storage of doors and windows by the
Lumber Co., has been moved farther t
down the street, added to and con- go
verted into a neat dwelling. Many f,
other improvements are directly due
to the Bayou Sara Lumber Co., not LI
to mention a number of new resi- Mi
dents. Houses on the river front 1n
are gradually coming back to their st
wonted shape. The building former

flood, is being overhauled and put
in order by the owner, Mr. J. F. Ir- T4

ig be celebrated at the family home in
Louisiana Avenue, New Orleans, at
6 o'clock in the afternoon of Wed
nesday, Jan. 22, with only relatives
and intimate friends among the wed
ding guests. The announcement of
g the engagement attracts much fash
ionable attention as Miss Leake has
y been an extremely popular and ad
Kt mired member of the younger set in
)r society since her debut two years
ago, and the wedding will be conspic
:e uous among the events of the later
le social season. Mr. Tack is promi
t nently connected in New York, where

s of years, going there from Pennsyl

York to Europe, when they were

Rt. Rev. Davis Sessums, Bishop of
the Protestant Episcopal diocese of
Louisiana, made the expected visita
tion to Grace Church, Sunday, preach ii
ing at both the morning and eveningl
services, and administering the rite "
of confirmation at the 11 o'clock ser- b
vice. There was also early commun- a
ion at 7:30 A. M. b
The weather was ideal for such an
occasion, and the mid-day service wasg
largely attended. The choir rendered
some very sweet music. The confir
mation class was large and owing to
system in arrangement, never before a
used here,made an unusually interest- ti
ing procession to the altar. The rec- r
tor, Rev. A. W. Skardon, had the 8
class sit together in the front pews "
on the right hand side of the middle
aisle, and this added to the orderli- I
ness and impressiveness of their S
movements. The Bishop compliment- ri
ed the class on their excellent prepa
ration. Those receiving confirmation
were Mr. Rudolf Yunkes, Misses
Leon Albert Doherty, Jessie Lewis h

GIRL PRIZE WINNERS.
The following results of the Tom;.
to Club contest and the winners 'of
the prizes offered last spring by M rs.
R. C. Wickliffe, are reported as -fol
lows by Parish Superintendent of
schools, Mr. A. M. Hendon:
The silver purse offered for the
first ripe tomato was awarded to Miss
Anna Belle Harvey, of Freeland, who
brought in a full-grown ripe tomato
on June 15th.
The ,gold scarf pin, offered for the
largest four tomatoes, was awarded ,o
Miss Isnell Riddle, of Riddle, who
brought in four tomatoes that weigh
ed 68 ounces.
The gold chain and pendant, offer
ed for the largest quantity of toma
toes, was awarded to Miss Lucile Dan
iel, of Elm Park, who gathered from
150 square yards of ground 2,654 )bs.
Very few girls remained in the con
test to the end and brought in their
tomatoes to the committee, and no
samples of canned tomatoes could be I
procured to send to the State Fair at 4
Shreveport, except from the three
girls mentioned above. Only three
samples of corn were received from
the Boys' Corn Club to send to the
State Fair, and the hundred dollars
offered by the School Board for prizes
in the corn and pig clubs will not
be awarded, as it was offered on the
condition that at least twenty boys
participate in the contest.

IN THE WRECK.
Mrs. Ruffin Barrow still lies very w
ill at the Touro Infirmary from the ,
injuries she received in the Montz m
wreck. Mrs. Barrow was hit on the vl
back of the head a severe blow and y
also has internal injuries. Her hus
band and two little boys were not of
injured. The latter are with their
grandfather, Capt. B. L. Barrtw, in h
Baton Rouge, while Mr. Barrow is in bh
New Orleans. br
Mrs. Max Dampf was in the wreck fo
and escaped uninjured, although site
ting directly behind Mrs. Ruffin Bar- tii
row. In the confusion of the wreck, tu
she lost sight of her child and did
not find the little one for ten minutes. M
Her agony of mind may be imagined vi
In fact, she says, that esuch was the
shock in general that she has not yet pr
recovered her poise. ha
Mr. Max Dampf, whose wife was in to
the wreck, says, with which we gr
heartily agree, that the newspapers te
have not said nearly enough about fi
Dr. E. M. Levert's services at thatSt
troublous time. The only doctor on fa
the train at the moment of the wreck, fi
and without medicines or instruments of
he, nevertheless, did everything pos
sible in bandaging the injured and
otherwise alleviating their condition. of
He got every clean handkerchief he
could for bandages, and all other
available material. Too much, says
Mr. Tlhampf, cannot be said in praise
of his devotion to the uifortunate
people in their hour of need.
We go to press before the enter
tainment takes place, to-night, but
feel very sure that it will be a suc
cess, financially and socially. A short
and catchy little program of song and
pantomime has been arranged, after
which there will be dancing to good
music, buying at the booths, and the
enjoyment of a nice supper by tho~e
who wish it. Admission, 15 cents.
The shippers of snay beans from
this place were disappointed in the
price received, but since most of
them planted more for the emperience
in order to know how to handle a
spring crop, than from expectations
if large profit, they are not dismay
ed. Their ill luck emphasizes the
tact that truckers need a trustworthy
representative at the other -end, to
look after prices and the market.

We will, beginning Monday,
Sept. 30, buy corn and, other
produce at best market prices.
