A Boar Wousm-.-A case of a&eidental
shooting occurred near Mr. Syivere Lan
dry's cooper shop, in the first ward of this
parish, about dark yesterday evening. A
cosIe.ed boy naned Prosper Baptiste, aged
16 yeare, was fooling with a self-cocking
revolver, 82 calibre, when one chamber of
the weapon was 'discharged and the ball"
entered the right side of Edward Nicholas,
another coloredboy,: passing between two
of his ribs and inflicting a wound that,
though painful, is not believed to be dan
gerous. Edward is about 14 years old and
is the son of Antoine Nicholas.
A grand union pmeting was held at the

were present and each one preached a ser

A. s. until the middle of the afternoon.
Collections for thebenefit of the building

the amount received aggregated the hand
some sum of $112 85. Mr. Brown and his

of such share in se s-i' offered for sale,
and will be able to hold her here if it is
deemed advisable and-profltable to do so.
We esume that propositions have been
submi tes for transporting mails between
Burnsid station and . apoleonvilIe and
that the retention of the Clipper may de

service. This is _ supposition on our
part, however, andi~ay not be correct. At

Miller has in view'i* i nnection with this

will result not onl1to his profit but to
the benefit of our town anld vicinity.
The CuFar was favored last Saturday
evening with a visit irom Rev. F. G. Ho
cutt of Plaquemine,. jho came to Donald
sonville for the purioe of holding services
on Sunday in the old Methodisb Church on
Railroad Avenue. Mr. Hocutt is a gentle
man of pleasing exterior and we regret
that we could not, lake it convenient to
hear him preach last Sunday. Heproposes
to visit our town on the last Sabbath of each
month and the Methodists of the commn
nity will doub.Mes gib him a cordial greet
ing and welcome witlinuch satisfaction the
opportunities thus afforded them for attend
ing religious service~ conducted according
to the ritual of their ondenomination. The
Methodists of Plaquemine expect to have a
new church built in the near future on a
plan of achitecture drawn by Mr. Hocutt
himself, and from thedescription we have
heard of the new ediftie we judge that it
will be a model structure.

BASE BefAL.-The tP r match game be
tween the Fortiers and Bentleys, which had
been appointed for last Sunday, ,the
27th ult., was postponed until the second
Sunday of May and the game played by the
Fortiers and a picked nine instead. The
latter team was victatious by the following
Picked nine........2 5 0 0 4 8 0 2-25
Fortiers... ........1 1 1 2. 6 4 0 0-15
Umpire-W. L. Tearney of the Nolans.
Another ppostponerlent of the third Bent
ley-Fqrtier match will doubtless be made,
as the firemen's annual parade occurs on the
second Sunday of May and most of the
players will take part in that demonstration.
Should the Bentleys win the next game, a
fourth match will be necessary to decide
the series, the first having ·-esulted in a tie
and the second in favor of the Fortiers.
Interest in the national game is reviving
at Shreveport, Alexandria, Natchitoches,
Plaquemine and other Louisiana towns
and the season promises to be a lively one.
With three good clun,, the Nolans, For
tiers and Bentleys, Donaldsonville ought
to secure some interesting match games
with teams from other places, and our rep
resentatives will doubtless hold their own
on the diamond fiield when pitted against
the manipulators of the ball and bat who
may visit hs -during thecurrent year. If
proper indncements 'are offered, it will no
doubt be an easy matter to induce the
Shreveporters to retuin the visit the Nolans
paid them last October, and we feel confi
dent it will be equally easy to take a Don
aldsonville team to either Alexan4rpa or
Shreveport, or both.

from describing the beautiful toilettes dis

better could not havebeen desired. Dano

credit upon Messrs. Gondran, Eisenberg,
