Real Estate Transactions.
The files of the Clerk's oflice
here show some very important
transactions affecting St. Landry
real estate, recently consummated,
and are the best of evidence that
things are still humming in the
empire parish. Among the larger
deals are the following:
S. R. Prentice, of Bangor, Me.,
to the Bowman-Hicks Lumber
Company of Kansas City, Mo.,
23,078 acres of land situated in
Calcasieu and St. Landry par
ishes, $646,000. The vendor re
serves a half interest in the oil
and mineral rights on land.
The Louisiana East and West
Railroad Company to the Hiber
nia Bank and Trust Company of
New Orleans, first mortgage on
real estate, right of way and other
property of the road, to secure
the payment of an issue of 35
year 5 per cent gold bonds, aggre
gating $750,000. This company is
now engaged in constructing a
line of railway from Bunkie, in
Avoyelles parish, to Ville Plate,
in this parish.
Krotz Manufacturing Company
of Ohio to the Melville (La.)
Land Company, 100 acres of land
in Melville, sub-divided into town
lots, $65,000.
Texas and Pacific Railroad Co.
to the Mercantile Trust Co. of
New York, first mortgage on right
of way, rolling stock, and other
property of the company, to se
cure an issue of 35-year bonds,
the entire issue not to exceed
$7,000,000. This company con
templates the extension of its
lines through Texas and the West.
Krotz Manufacturing Company
to the Melville 13ox and Lumber
Company, 2172 acres of land in
St. Landry parish, near Melville,
$32,585.

A petition has been circulatea
here during the week asking the
Board of Aldermen to call an
election to take the sense of the
voters of this town on the propo- i
sition to levy a 5-mill tax for ten
years in aid of the Colorado t
Southern Railroad, which pro
_oses to run its line from De
Quincey, to Calcasieu parish, to l
Baton Rouge, through this place. t
The officials of the road promise t
to commence work on their line
as soon as the tax is levied, but.
will not require any portion of the
tax to be paid over to them until
the line is constructed through
the corporation. The company
further guarantees to have trains
running on their line within 24
months from the date of com
mencement of work on the road.
Another local real estate deal of
some importance, in which the
hustling real estate dealer, F. M.
Welch, again figures, was closed
here last Monday, when Mr Welch
bought the property of Mr. P. T.
Blacksher, on Main street, ad
joining the COURIER office, for
$9,000. Mr. Welch himself could
not be here in person to sign the
deed, he being bottled up in New
Orleans on account of the quar
antine, but had a representative
here, armed- with a power of at
torney, to look after matters for
him. -.

Lewis, president; E. P. Veazie, vr
vice-president; Dr. Jno. A. IIHaas,

The officials of the company are 1,
impatiently awaiting the raising c
of the quarantines so as to com
mence work on the construction e
of their road. _ _
Our mail arraugements seem to r
be getting no better fast, and we
suspect that the trouble is not
altogether with the quarantines.
The train due here at 6:21 p. m.
seldom reaches Opelousas until 9

New Orleans papers of that day;
while the 12:01 train makes bet

The Yellow Fever Situation.
There is not much change in the
yellow fever situation in New Or
leans and the health authorities (
seem to have the disease under I
control. Friday's report an
nounced 44 new cases, 7 deaths
and 10 new foci for the previous f
24 hours. The situation in the
country is not so encouraging.
Leesville had 170 cases of yellow I
fever and 200 cases of dengue;
Patterson 11 new cases; Hanson
City 9; Lake Providence 5; St.
Bernard 5; Indian Village 2;
Willaroad Plantation 2; St. Rose
2; Port Barrow 2; Lafourche
Crossing 2; Elizabeth 3; Missis
sippi City 1, and 60 cases un
earthed at Amelia, Assumption
parish.
Now that the United States
Hospital Service has taken charge
of the yellow fever situation in l
Louisiana, we see no good reason I
why the Postoffice Department i
should not prevent quarantine I
outrages to the extent of regular
mail service. We don't believe
in a centralized government at all,
but things have come to such a
pass that some people must be
protected from themselves. The
people are inclined to lean on the
national government for too many
things, but in an emergency like
the one Louisiana is now facing,
help from any quarter will be
thankfully received. - Mansfield
Journal.

In some of the parishes of the b:
State the assessors have "under
stood the situation" so well that es
there is some vigorous kicking on in
the part of the police juries over O
the method of "equalization" by
sliding up the scale. In all prob- or
ability the kicking of the police W;
juries will not he a circumstance so
to the tall kicking of some of the
taxpayers when they come to set- as
tle their account with the fisc.
The outcome of it all will most
probably be a speedy return to
the ante-bellum system of elec- d
tive assessors.-Thibodaux Senti- e;
nel. ti
The error that most health bod- "
ies make in establishing quaran- r4
tines is that they put the lid on c'
too tight at first. The people tl
grow restive under too much re- b
straint; abuses are sometimes
committed, soon the charge of f
partiality towards. individuals is t'
made, dissatisfaction crops out t
and relaxation is the result. The C
pendulum of protection is apt to
swing too far the other way and t
negligence follows. Then the e
real danger comes,-and the corn- Y
.munits is at a disadvantage be- a
cause of the demoralization that c
prevails among people.-Mans- t
field Journal. C

If Mr. Clarence Hayes would
come-to the COURIER office and
conceal himself for a few mo- I
ments he would soon discover that t
hell broke loose since the boot- t
blacks took possession of Main
street. One of these imps had I
the impudence to strike a white
lady last Monday, for which he
was fined $7.50. Had this oc
curred to a prominent citizen's
family there might have been a
lynching bee.
The impudence of this negro pest
sl getting worse every day,
They seem to be immune from arrest,
And are growing entirely too gay.

If instead of giving creuence Lo n
and repeating every wild, sense
less report of yellow fever, citi- tI
zens would make it a point to
contradict such baseless reports
and set the public right, the yel
low fever liar would soon find his
occupatior gone and would sub- c
side for want of a sympathizing f
ear in which to pour his poison- t
onus vaporings.-Mansfield Jour- ,

Governors Blanchard and Var

Seasonable Advice.
Dr. Quitman Kohuke, President
f the Board of Health of New
)rleans, gives the following time
y advice concerning yellow fever:
The spread of yellow fever is
asily controlled by the applica
ion of very simple rules.
Yellow fever is transmitted from
'erson to person by the bite of a
tegomyia mosquito - the kind
those breeding places are cis
erns, water barrels and similar,
ollections of water. The stego
nyia mosquito bites in the day
ime usually, seldom at night.
It is important to know the A
onditions under which these
nosquitoes transmit the disease
o that measures of prevention
nay be intelligently operated.
Mosquitoes, in order to become s.
nfectious, must bile a patient
luring the first three days of the
ever, and then ten days must
lapse before it is capable of
ransmitting the disease.
Mosquitoes are, therefore, not
langerous before the tenth day
ifter biting the sick, and the pa
*ient is not dangerous after the
bird day of fever.
Protect from mosquitoes, day
nd night, all cases of fever for
hree days, and then destroy be
lore the tenth day, after the be
,inning of the illness, the mos
luitoes that are in the room.
Whenever yellow fever spreads
from person to person, it is be
ause these preventive measures
iave not been carried out.
The rules laid down by the high
st medical authority for stamp
ng out the yellow fever in New
3rleans are very simple, viz:
First-To keep empty all unused receptacles
)f water in every house, and allow no stagnant
water on any premises.
Second-To screen all cisterns after placing a
small quantity of insurance oil (a teacupful in
uach cistern) on the surface of the water.
Third--Tb place a small quantity of insur
nce oil in cesspools or privy vaults.
Fourth-Sleep under mosquito nets.
Fifth- Wherever practicable, screen doors
und windows with wire screens of close mesh.

Michigan was shocked the other
day by what was thought to be an
earthquake. A very natural mis
take. However, Michigan need
not be alarmed, it was merely a
reverberation of the shocking dis
covery made by Gen. Jastremski
that Louisiana assessments had
been raised.-Shreveport Times.
When they come to pay the
freight the Joneses will be shocked
too, by the fifty million gold brick
that is being passed to them for a
Christmas gift, and we shall see
with what equanimity they will
take the riveting of the brick for
evermore with an annex for next
year. There is some murmuring
already among the ordinarily do
cile freight payers. As the es
teemed Times is of the lucky band
of beneficiaries, it sees the joke
on the other fellow.-The People.
FDITOR COURIER: Some unso
phisticated innocent, writing to
the Clarion, begs the town au
thorities to tell us what becomes
of our money. If the aforesaid
innocent will look at the town
charter he will see that these au
thorities are commanded by law
to publish once a year (in or
about the month of October), a
detailed account of the year's
transactions. That has never
been done since the charter was
adopted, although they have been
asked to do so; and as long as our
lamb-like people continue to ne
glect their public duties, the prob
ability is that our self-constituted I
masters and dictators will continue is
to show their contempt for us and
for the law by coolly neglecting 1
theirs. SIz.
I t
It a EOW aoesn wantL LU re' V;
eive mail and freight, through tt
'ear of the yellow fever, let it no- p
ify the railroads net to stop trains p
within its limits. The trains then I
ihould be permitted to pass on to o
:owns that do not propose to take o
Such drastic measures. This thing s$
Af tieing up a railroad system by a
t few panic-stricken men clothed -
in a little brief authority should tl
be stopped. The public has rights
which should not be denied them
by a few self-important individ- c
uals.-Mansfield Journal. a
It gives a man a lonesome feel
ing to stroll around the depot. It
is so quiet one can scarcely rea
lize that Lafayette is on the main
line. Trains come and go, but
they don't stop, and it makes a
fellow have a decidedly "left"
feeling to see them roll on by as
if Lafayette wasn't on the map.
-Lafayettee Advertiser.

purpose go elsewhere.
