TnIE BEST CANE.-W. received on.Sun
day before last, the 4th inst., a stalk of
cane having nine red joints, 'lmeasuring
37 inches in length, 41 inches in circum
ference at the thickest part. Several of
the joints were each five inches long.
This stalk was cut from M. Israel & Co.'s
Saulsburg plantation, in the phrish of St.
James, and was the finest specimen of
the growing cane crop we had seen up to
that date. Who sends the next one ?
The law card of that estimable young

office is directly opposite the Court

dal~ly. We are confident that none who
-employ him will ever have reason to
ecomplJalf that their interests were not

Mr. Pierre Klopman sent to our office
yesterday several heads of rice as a sam
ple of the fine crop of that grain growing
onlthe little plantation of Mr. John D.
Cantey, in the fifth ward of this parish,
and it just "lays over " any specimen we
bave seen this season. Mr. Cantey has
.no pump, and the only water that has
stood upon his rice was what he let
through the levee while the river was
high. He held this in his fields as long
as possible, but for about three weeks
the rice has only had the benefit of such
mnoistnre as the occasional rains have
afforded. Notwithstanding this draw
back, however, the rice has headed up
splendidly, with large, full grain, and
gives promise of a first-class yield.

high terms of a prominent citizen of
Donaldsonville and of the worthy Biknr
Cholim congregation over which he
presides: :
The Rev. Gustave Levy, Rabbi of the
Donaldsonville Synagogue, called at our
sanctum on Tuesday last, during our
absence. We regret not having met this
worthy, accomplished and eminent rep
resentative of the Jewish faith during
his brief stay in Napoleonville, and hope I
that on the occasion of his next visit to
be honored with another call. WVe nn
derstand that the reverend gentleman C
was here onta visit to the numerous
members of his congregation, which t
embraces many of our most enterprising, u
industrious and law-abiding citizens.

BASE BALL.-GrasshopperS rs. Hancocks.
-The nmatch game of base ball played y
between the Grasshopper club of Don- 1t
aldsonville and the Hancock club of the a
fifth ward, last Sunday, proved quite as ii
interesting a contest as was anticipated, t.
and attracted a considerable assemblage A
of spectators. The Grasshoppers, accom- a
panied tby the Cofield Band and a nnm- di
ber of friends, crossed the river at' Don- n
aldsonville at 2 P. M., and proceeded to r
the Hancock grounds, on the Clark plan- o
tation, in two large wagons sent up for b
their accommodation by the courtesy of ii
the members of the challenging club. s
The ride down was ery plesa.ut_on~e, n
and the visitors ient with a cordial re- c
ception upon arriving at the place of t
destination. After a fewdively airs from I
the band, the ball tossers prepared for g
the fray and played it spirited and pleas- V
ant game, conducted with the best feel- t
ing throughout, the result of which is It
hiown by the following detailed p

After the game the HancocRs invited
their visitors to partake of ice-cream,
lemonade and cake, which had been
provided in abundance, and the refresh
ments were discussed with infinite rel
ish.
Three members of the Quiclkstep club
of New Orleans being on the grounds,
proposed that a game of five innings be
played between picked nines, the Quick
f step players to take six of the Hancock
ten and play against seven Grasshoppers
and two members of the Burnside club
of Donaldsonville. The proposition was
f accepted and a bout of absorbing inter
est was had, resulting in a score of 8 to
8 in four innings. It was considered too
late to play another inning, and the im
promptu game was declared a "draw."
More music from the band and then
cordial good-byes were said and the
Donaldsonville boys returned home in
.splendid spirits delighted with the
amusement the afternoon had afforded,
the favorable result of their game and
the hearty reception accorded them by
the gentlemanly Hancocks.
--The Hancock: club has first-class
material, most of its members being
large, strong and hardy. All that is re
quired to make them very proficient and
formidable in ball-tossing is practice. A
second match between the Hancocks and
Grasshoppers is on the tapis for Sunday
after next, the 25th inst., to be played on
the Donaldsonville grounds.
-The Burnside and Grasshopper clubs
will cross bats on the public square to
morrow afternoon to play off their tie
game of Sunday before last.
-It is expected that the Quickstep
club of New Orleans will visit Donald
sonville on the 25th instant to play the
Burusides of this place. If so, the match
will be played during the forenoon and
that of the Hancocks and Grasshoppers
in the afternoon. The advent of a city
club to meet one of our local organiza
tions on the diamondr field would be an
exciting and interesting event.

ig The Blue Bucket Fire Company of
Donaldsonvillu made an excursion here
on the 4th of July. The members of this

8. PICAYUNE SAW-MILL.-We paid a visit
d yesterday to the Picayune Saw-Mill, sit
u- nated half a mile below Donaldsonville
e and had the pleasure of giving the estab
is lishment a thorough inspection under
1, the guidance of the senior proprietor, Mr.
e Alfred Esneault, and of hearing from him
1- a brief history of the circumstances un
I- der which the mill was erected and the
I- means employed to place it in the front
o rank of the successful business ventures
1- of this community. When Mr. Esnault
ur began the erection of the Picaynne mill
if in February, 1879, his cash capital con
i. sisted of one of Uncle Sam's treasury
e, notes-of thadenomnination of *5. Jkero
cured the loan of a small engine from
uf that liberal and whole-souled planter,
n Mr. James Teller, who also advanced him
Mr. James Teller, who also advanced him
"ufficient means to purchase a boiler.
With his own hands, assisted by his sons,
Messrs. Albert and Cecilien Esueanlt and
Mr. Henry Norris-all of whom are now
partners in the business-Mr. Esneault
put up a frame, mounted it on a founda
tion of blocks and rough timber and be
gan sawing timber on a limited scale
without even having a roof over the
heads of himself and assistant workmen
for several months after commencing
business. The diminutive character of
the apparatus led to many facetious com
ments on the part of the friends and
neighbors of the projected enterprise.
Some said it would be a good coffee or
corn mill, but that a log coming in con
tact with the saw would "stall" it.
Others laughingly called.it a "picayune"
nill, and Mr. Esneault judged that this
title would answer as well as any other
and forthwith 'christened his venture
" Picayune Saw-Mill." Making a hand
some profit from the first raft of logs
they converted into sawed lumber, the
managers of the mill began gradually to
improve their facilities and enlarge the
scope of their operations. They paid all
their debts, elected a shed over the mill,
built a ncat little office on the upper
side, and a workshop on the lower, pro
cured larger and better machinery, b.ought
increased quantities of timber and turned
out a correspondingly increased amount
of lumber. In their workshop they have
a foot lathe, a steam lathe, a carpenter's
bench, blacksmith's forge, and a grind
stone propelled by steam; they build
their own saw frames, repair and improve
their machinery, gum (sharpen) their
saws and grind the gumnmers, all with
the labor of their own hands. They are
preparing to put up a double circular
saw instead of the single one now in use,
in order that they may be enabled to saw
logs of the largest size. This improve
ment will be added during next fall or
winter, when the present rush of work is
over. The senior Mr. Esneault possesses
considerable mechanical genius, and last
year he secured a patent for a very use
ful invention-au edger for sawing lath
and narrow boards-to which we shall
refer more particularly at another time.
This season the proprietors of the Pica
yune mill have bought about a dozen
large rafts of timber, including nearly
all the logs floated out of the Homochitto
bayou. The mill is in coustant operation
from sunrise to sunset, every day of the
week excepting Sundays, and has not
run an hour this season without having
orders in advance for tim lumber sawed.
The timber used is of the best quality,
and lumber is furnished upon the most
reasonable terms-in this respect the
proprietors invite comparison with the
rates of other mills and dealers. The
flourishing business of the Picayune mill
is a bright example of what can be ac
complished from small beginnings by in
dustry, enterprise and frugality, and its
proprietors are the kind of men that
build up a community and constitute its
most useful citizens.

pendim g the decision of the matter in t
coutta. Mr. Kline's" "Old Reliable

Sunday.
The CnIEF is in full sympathy wit
those merchants who believe conscien'
tiously that the Sunday law will afeetc
their business disastrously and thus in;
jure the interests of Donaldsonville. Wd
are confident that their view is a mista
ken one; that the suspension of bnsiit
on the day upon which the great mass of
the people rest from their weekly labors,
will prove a benefit to the town and all
its inhabitants, by improving the moral
tone of the community to a degree that
will fully compensate for any temporary
disadvantage resulting from the new de
parture; but should the result show
that what has proved a blessing to other
localities would be an injury here, the
CHIEF will not be slow to acknowledge
the fact and to join the anti-Sunday-law
merchants in their opposition to the
measure. We distinctly avow, however,
that our sympathy does not extend to
the gambling and tippling houses that
have been tolerated too long in our midst,
contrary to law and good morals. Don
aldsonville has for years possessed the
unenviable distinction of being the only
town in the State where such institu
tions are allowed to flourish undisturbed,
and long immunity from the prosecution
which the law enjoins has led the keep
ers of these establishments to assume
that they have legal and inalienable
rights equal to those of reputable and
law abiding merchants, any infringement
of which is an assault upon the liberties
and privileges of the people! It is time
this mistake was corrected, and it is en
couraging to note that the prospect for
an early accomplishment of this consum
mation is good. If any modifications of
the Sunday law are to be hereafter made,
we shall insist that they do not apply to
liquor vending. As for th* evil of public
gambling, we shall expect that to bhe
effectually wiped out long before the
question of the Sunday law is brought
to a definitive test in the Aurts.
We learn that Judge R. N. Sims, the
able attorney of the Town Council in its
fight against the Sunlday law, has ad
vised several merchants to open their
establishments to-morrow but to sell no
liquor. This counsel is probably based
upon the decision of the Supreme Court
on the Baton Rouge Sunday law, which,
we are informed, especially affirms and
emphasizes the right of parochial and
municipal authorities to restrict and reg
ulate the barter and sale of liquor, a
right that is recognized and exercised in
every State in the Union.
On Monday the rule taken upon Dis
trict Attorney Earhat to show cause
why he should not be Ipunished for con
tempt of court for prosecuting violators
of the Sunday law, willeome up for trial
before Judge Cheevers at chambers.
An Iberville storekeeper has recently
paid a fine of ,250 for opening his estab
ishment on Sunday.

Capt. A. B. Tuttle, the well known
Arctic explorer, arrived here to-day, and A
proposes to lecture at Ascension Hook
and Ladder Hall, Monday evening, on
the subjects of the Open Polar Sea and
its wonders, including the Aurora Borea
lis and other phenomena of the Arctic
regions, the discovery of the Northwest
Passage and of a new race of people b
speaking the Hebrew tongue, and some
of the startling incidents with which the
lecturer's life has been replete. Captain
Tuttle has been on the sea 53 years--ex- -
cepting two years spent as a captive of
the cannibals on the Fiji Islands, two
years in Hindoston and two years
in the Rocky and Sierra Nevada
mountains-has visited almost every
known portion of the world, been ship
wrecked several times, and hence pos
sesses a fund of information and experi
ence of which few men can boast. He
intends to leave San Francisco in Octo- 1
ber for another voyage of discovery to
the Polar Sea, and is filling up the in- s
ferval of time with a lecturing tour. The d
press speaks highly of his lectures, and
they can scarcely fail to be interesting. p
The admission price is merely nominal,
25 cents, and we bespeak for the Captain
a full house. If the first lecture receives
adequate encouragement, a second one
will be given Tuesday evening, mainly
devoted to the subject of his captivity
among the cannibals.
Advice to Consumptives. 8
No man, however uncleanly, would
drink muddy, dirty water. A party which
occupies a room for hours, breathing the
same air, might be compared to a party
of bathers drinking the water in which
they bathe. The patient must keep the
window of his bed-room open. Night air
is fresh air without daylight. In close,
crowded rooms, the patient suffering from
lung complaints breathes consumptively.
By taking these precautions and using i
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery I
and Pleasant Purgative Pellets, fully one
half of cases of lung complaints would s
be cured in six months. For cough and
irritation of the lungs do not always in- a
dicate the presence of consumption, al- I
though it may result in that disease, and s
if consumption has already become deep- t
ly seated in the system, this is the nmost
efficient course of treatment that can be
pursued outside of institutions that pro
vide special facilities for the treatment I
of this disease. Dr. Pierce's celebrated I
Invalids' Hotel is such an institution.
