To show the progressiveness of
some of our neighbors we have t
only to mention the fact that Jean
erette which has just completed a
system of concrete, or coment side- 3
walk is now having its Main street !
paved, read the following from the t
local paper :
"The street paving contractors
are making very good time despite t
the bad weather. They have al- t
most finished laying the drainage 1
pipes, have the curbing built from
the east end to the Moresi railroad
switch, and it is a fine job of ce
ment work. They are now laying
the conorete work for the street a
and the trolley line track. ihis
concrete is four inches thick, to ble
c.overed with two inches ,of ther
bitholithio mixture. The compa
ny has a large force of meni at
work and the pay roll of this labor t
cornes at au opportune time at I
this season of business depression;
it is of great help to the trade of
the town.-Jeanerette Herald.
Here Is a remedy that will cuei your
cold. Why waste time and money ex
perimenting when you can get a pielpa
ration that has won a world-wide repu
tation by its cures of this disease and
ean always be depended upon? It is d
known every-where as Chamberlain 's
Cough Remedy, and is a medicine of real
merit. For sale by all druggists.

It at
s Last Wednesday. Messrs. John 7(
D. Walet and J. J. Burdiu, special a
representatives from Iberia and St. l
Martin Parishes, appeared before lii
t the Atchafalaya Levee Board in Y(
session at Baton Rouge and se- al
cured an appropriation of $270,- Y
, 000, payable in three annual in- f
stallments of $90,000 for the con- fir
struction of a levee from Port e'
Barre to some point in Bayou Y'
e Teche, between Jeanerette and tb
8 Charentou. The building of a le- a
vee along the East Bank of the Y'
Atch-faleya River which has been a'
in progrees for the past several W
f years, has reclaimed a vast area in y'
e the other Pariesbes to the detri. al
- ment of Iberia, St. Martin and St.
a Mary, large sections of which are
- yearly inunilated by the overflow
t waters from the River, although in(
e these three Parishes have, for a
many years, contributed their full W
a quota of taxes for the proper con- "
e trol of these waters. To remedy
Sthese evils, the Police Julies of Y
e Ileria and St. Martin sent Messrs in
n \Valet and Burdin to ask for relief fe
i fronm the Lsvee' Board. So well ti
. was the mission performed, that
g the appropriation secured will con
t struct the prlposed( levee and ren
d ier possibl , the cultivation of a
e large territory, comprising Mamo
'of the most fertile lands in the
SState, thereby enriching the own- t
t era andt, incidletly, adding mnuch

AS TO TRAMPS.
At this season of the year th
Sunny South has always quite an
addition to its population in the
shape of the 'gentlemen of leisure'
who flock this way to avoid the
extreme wintry weather of the
northern states. These fellows
have a great antipathy to work,
and the heads of the household
should make it a duty to see that
a goodly pile of dry wood is kept
in the back yard, to which the
good housewife may direct the at
tention of the "Weary Willie,"
who knocks at her back door for a
handout. Work is almost as great
a cure for unnecessary evils as
water is for many diseases, and _
we believe that if rightly applied
will greatly alleviate this evil.

Any man who wishes that he
was a woman should try it for a
day.
Fasten a counterpaue and a blan
ket 'round your legs; bunokle a
strap around your waist so tight
you can't draw a full breath or eat
a hearty meal; have your hair all
loose and fluffy so it keeps tick
liug your ears and getting into
your eyes; wear high-heeled shoes
and gloves a size too small for
you; cover your face with a veil
full of spots that make you squint;
fix a huge hat on pins so that
every time the wind blows it pulls
your hair opt by the roots, and
I then without any pockets and with V
a three inch square of lace to blow
you nose with, and shorf sleeves,
and cpen work stockings, go for a

yourself. Oh, yes, you'd like it,
