Mardi Gras Celebration.
The St. Martinville Braes Band
and Woodmen of the World, we
have been informed, have decided
to celebrate Mardi Gras in grand
style, and they have gained the
support and assistance of our peo
pie in this effoort to make a cre
ditable demonstration on this day
of fun and pleasure.
This is the right spirit, our peo
pie must come together and help
one another keep the town awake
and lively, all those little celebra
tions keep a town alive and keep
the people in the right spirit of
doing something, keep busy, make
the people feel that they want to
live and make things look brigh
ter and better.
Let us all help make this cele
bration as fine as we can possibly
do, it will do us good and make
all the town and people of the
surrounding country happy.
It pays a town to keep lively
Our people at a recent meeting
who refused to entertain the idea
of repairing our roads are now re
alizing the fact that we are bot
tied up, we can't get out and peo
ple around us can't come in. By
refusing to do what the Police Ju
ry should do, is a cause of great
injury to the town with no imme
diate relief in sight unless our
people change their midds and
work the roads.
The Bonin Grocery Co., made a
sale of 160 bales of cotton this
week to U. M. Parker & Co., New
Orleans, at 7.15 which was the
largest sale at one time since the
coming of the weevil.
-Thursday evening we had the
heaviest rain of the winter, it was
a real deluge. It fell heavily for
a long time and was accompanied
by a strong south wind.
