The fire at half past five o'clock
Wednesday morning, on Main
street, in the business' center of t
town, proved very costly, as a good
building and great destruction of
goods was the result.

$400 or $500 was completely de.

Hard Surface Road Discussed.
SThe people of Assumption pa
risb, that is those who have given
any consideration at all to the sub.
ject, have come to the conclusion
that good roads is one of the big
gest improvements that could be
given a parish. They have con
vinced themselves, after a trial of
I nearly three years, that the sys
tem of model dirt roads, means a
starting over of making roads af
ter each spell of rain, and a steady
drain on the purse of the people's
money for something that it is not
lasting; and in other words a con
tinual "waste of money," as the
people of Iberia and Iberville and
I other parishes have expressed it.
r Aside from the great advantage
of haviug good roads in any kind
of weather and at all the times, we
will have the satisfaction of know.
iug that we have spent our money
Swisely and for something that will
Sthan compensate us.
At a meeting of the police jury's
r good roads committee and a com
mittee of the Progressive League,
held last Tuesday, a plan was
agreed on, and will be submitted to
the Police Jury at its next meet
ing. The plan comprehends the
building of hard surface roads by
issuing bonds, and without rais
ing the taxes one cent. It is also
the intention of those at the head
of the movement not to rashly
rush the matter, but to consider
every phase of the subject, and to
make soare that every cent of the
money will be spent judiciously
and without any extravagance in
From what we have been able
to learn, it is proposed to study
the plan carefully and once that
the best way to raise the money,
that is the life of the bond issue,
is attled, to go right along and
build the roads.
