BigTraction Project LaunchedI
COMPANY IS OR(ANIZED IN LAKE Sta,
CHARLES TO BE DOMICILED IN COR
(Special to The Item.)
Lafayette, La.. Nov. 18.-Mr. E. B7
E. Sbackford, for several years ted I
superintendent of the Louisiana Stat
Lines of the Southern Pacific rail- this
road, but now connected with the witl
Louisiana Traction and Power Sale
Company, a new company formed a" u
at Lake Charles, Saturday, while
in Lafayette, stated that the com- and
pany which was organized at Lake untl
Charles will have its domicile in LUIu
Lafayette and planned to build an der
electric belt railway which will yeal
connect New Iberia, Cades, Brous- eat
sard, Lafayette, Scott, Duson, trot
Rayne, Crowley, Estherwood, Mer. rate
mentau, Jennings, Welsh, Iowa
"Besides," said Mr. Shackford,
"we will build branches to Opel. c
ousas, embracing Carencro and J
uueset, also one branch liue to Ka8
Abbeville, which will either em- Ha
brace Maurice or Youugsville in J
its course to Vermillion perish. eal
"Our company was organized by We
men of known business ability and
reputation and with enough of wee
financial backing that we will not 1
ask for auything unreasonable. (a
Our main power plant will be lo- wee
cated in Lafayette. A
"We opened au office here Mon-. oi
day and will i ush the work of co C
structiou. We have both the men
and the money to do things and
are not going to say or promise weS
more than we can do. Our work
will speak for itself." ea~
While there had been some talk ear
of this project for some time, the a
news of the formal organization u1o
was received by Lafayette as a Ida
surprise, as no one considered the
project lo such shape as to war- we
rant iwinedliate organization. The j
announcemeut, coming as it dose, ead
so close preceding the voting of a ke
special tax in aid of the South- .
western 'l action Company which
is now operating between Jean- .
erette and New iberia, will likely can
have some effect opon the voters. we
The proeposed tax is for a period
of 10 years and if carried will give 'd
the company a bonus of $90.000.
There was already strong opposi. ,a
tion to the tax and together with we
the promise of this new company
to build without any aid will in- dtr
crease the opposition and give op
pouents of the tax new grounds on u
which to wake the fight. we

St. It is a very common practice
unow-a.day for people to plan a
ad month or two ahead the presents
the they expect to give Christmas. It
aid is also necessary for some people
to plan a long time ahead when
they expect to make expenditures
of money. These two classes of
people compose the great majori- W
ty, for to meot the demands of mo
dern conditions generally means a
hard-pressed pocket book at all
times. This being true, it would A
follow that the merchant who, by A
commencing his holiday advertis- An
ing at this time, would be paving A b
the way for a large and profitable AI
business during the near holiday Al
season, for he would be directing A`
i.vW the attention of these good and A(
thrifty people now to that end. A ThI

vity of the business man in using ftic

A man with a nose made out of
the ring finger of his left hand
was the center of interest at one
session of the American Congress
of Surgeons. The man's nose had
3.82 been destroyed by an accident,
none of the bone remaining, and
be could get no work on account
7 of bhi appearance. The man's arm
was bent so the joint of the finger
s lay at the bridge of the nose and
the finger extended downward.
'tbe skin was theou opened and the
whole finger, flesh, bone and all,
sewed to the cheek at either side.
313 The first and second joints formed
the new nose. The third joint
was bent towards the face and the
6.47 amputated end was sewed to the
face so that a good-looking nose
4. was formed. The only features
lacking were the nostrils. The
surgeon stated that when the pa.
Stient grew a mustache uo one will
know the difference between the
fu tinger nose and a real one.
