cated on the right bank of Bayou La
fourche, a few hundred feet below the head
of that stream, in the village of Port Bar,
row. Four flatboats have been loading
with lumber there this week, designed for
shipment to various points along the river
and bayopuin this and adjacent parishes.
About 60,000 feet were shipped last week,
and up to Wednesday of the current week
orders had beeneoeeived for 60,000 more.
This is an indi!mon, that the proprietors
of the Lafourche mill must be prepared to
supply lumber as cheaply as it can be pro
cured anywhere else. Besides filling nu
merous orders from the surrounding coun
try, they are sawing the lumber for the new
jobboat being constructed for the owners
of the Caney Fork, and have turned out
pieces 54 feet in length, which is said to
exeted the capacity of any other mill in

Operation of about thirty of the young men
of the town and ticinity, who extended a
general invitation to their lady friends and
were rewarded by a large attendance of
the fair sex, representatives of the best
society of Ascetisfon, St.8 James and As

young ldies fra New Orleans. Dancing

the close. Much of the credit for the suc

corded to Messrs. Prosper Landry, Tuite
Hanson and: Leo Geenwood, who acted as
a general managingm committee. Mrs.
. A. Gaudet furnished the music, which
was of the best order, and Mr. Gervais
Ganthreaux supplied the refreshments,
consisting of ice cream, sherbet, lemonade,
cakes and ice cream of a quality hard to
excelled. It was a matter of general regret
among the guests that Mr. Bradford was
called away to Rapides parish on business
and could not remain to take part in the
entertainment he was primarily instru
