Mr. Peter M. Lapice, one of the oldest
and most intelligent sugar planters of St.
Janies, died at his plantation last week,
aged 87 years. He was born in San Do
mingo, but came to Louisiana'when a child.
XThe New Orleans City Item says:
As an evidence of his enterprise and energy it
may be stated that twelve years ago he went to
the Dutch East India posnessions in order to
roecre a new variety of cane tot the benefit of
ouisiana planters. Most of his samples were
iled before they arrived, hbt from the few
eyes that retained their vitality a sugar cane
r~oll suited to this climate has been widely pro
dnlced. Mr. Lapice was the first Louisiana
planter that produced whitesungar in this State.
His body was conveyed to Natehez. where it
was burned beside the remains of his wife, who
died many years ago.

The 939qd of Levee Commissioners for
he third district met at Algiers on Thurs
day and after considering a report from
tbe State Board of Engineers showing the
luponuntf work done in &e district during
'be past year'and the probable amount that
w'll "e required to put the levees in good
shape before the flood of 1885, it was de
cided that the district levee tax for 1884
should be fixed at five mills. A resolution
Fe adopted calling the attention of the
Fov.rnor, Attorney General and Police
Jury to the facts connected with the refusal
of .6 property holders of Orleans parish,
~gl; ank, to pay the district levee tax,
and recommending that steps be taken to
determin'e the 'status of the parish of Or
)eans'with regard to that tax. Mr. J. C.

was unable to attend the meeting, hence

A soiree dansante was given at the resi- c

committee, Mr. Podas4 was admitted sub

notice having been received that his right
to act as a member would be contestpd, he
was finally confirmed in l}is seat.
An executive cciongittee was appointed,
consisting of Messrs. W. A. Robertson, I. W.

Ogden, E. H. McCaleb, R. C. Davey, J. V.

was authorized to lssue an address to the

A proposition to take action relative to
calling a convention to elect delegates to the

over as premature. The members taxed

SEN* TOSIAL ConvE rrToN CALLED.-The
Republican Senatorial committee of this
district met at the court-house in this town
on Thursday, pursuant to the call of the
chairman, with all the members present in
person or by proxy. After considerable
discussion, resolutions were adopted calling
a Senatorial nominating convention to
meet at Darrowville, this parish, on Mon
day, March 10, at 12 M., to choose a candi
date for Senator and form a new district
committee. The representation of the two
parishes was fixed at eight delegates each,
and the presidents and secretaries of the
parish committees are to furnish the dele
gates with proper credentials. These cre
dentials are to be forwarded to the chair
man and secretary of the district com
mittee, who are to prepare the roll for the
temporary organization of the convention.
We shall publish the official proceedings of
the district committee next week if space
permits. Hon. G. H. Hill of Ascension and
Senator Richard Simmes of St. James are
the competing candidates for the Senato
rial nomination, and the probability is that
we shall witness as stubborn a contest for
the prize as that waged in behalf of the
same candidates four years ago. St. James
has had the Senator twelve years since re
construction, against Ascension's four
years, and the delegates from this parish
will undoubtedly exhaust all legitimate
means to secure the nomination of their

Climbing the Spiral Stairs.
Invisible Architecture in a New England
"Yes," she said, "oar children are married
and gone, and my husband and I sit by our win
ter fire much as we did before the little ones
came towiden the circle. Lifeis something
like a spiral staircase; we are all the time com
ing around over the spot we started from, only
one degree further up the stairs."
"Thatis a pretty illustration," remarked her
friend, musingly, gazing into the glowing coals
which radiated a pleasant heat from the many
windowed stove. "You know we cannot stop
toiling up the hill, though."
"Surely, we can't, and for myself Idon't find
fault with that necessity provided the advance
in life is not attended with calamity or suffer
ing, for I have had my share of that. Not long
since-my health utterly broke down. My sys
tem was full of malaria. My digestion became
thoroughly disordered and my nerves were in a
wretched state. I was languid, ate little and
that without enjoying it, and had no strength
or ambition to perform even my light house
hold duties. Medical treatment failed to rech
the seat of the trouble. The disease-which
seemed to be weakness of all the vital organs
progressed until I had several attacks which
my physicians pronounced to be acute conges
tion of the stomach. The lastof these was a des
perate struggle and I was given up to die. As the
crisis had partially passed, my husband heard
of the merits of PARKER'S TOoIc as an ianvigor
ant in just suoh cases as mine. I took it and
felt its good effects at once. It appeared to per
vade my body as though the blessing of new
life had come to me. Taking no other medi
cine I continued to improve, and am now in
better health titan I have neen for a long time."

To the Honorable Mayor and Common Council
The undersigned respectfully petition your
honorable body to pass an ordinance prohibit
to ing the landing of driftwood on the river bank,

to afford a safe and convenient spot for water
ing horsesand other stock, washing carriages.
etc., this being the only portion of the riverside
along the front where a hard sandy bottom and
shallow water afford proper facilities for these
objects. Logs and enormous roots are the
cause of greatpnublic nuisance and of serious
injury to the health and comfort of the whole
community. Very respectfully,
