3IURNING OF A COTTON GIs.-fln Wednes
day last the steam cotton gin operated by
Mr. Hercule Landry at Prairieville, in the
eighth ward of this parish, caught fire acci
dentally while the machinery was in mo
tion, and burned to the ground, together
with fifteen bales of cotton. The cotton
was insured, but there was no insurance on
the gin-house and machinery, valued at I
about $2000 and owned by Mr. Landry's
brother-in-law, Mr. Austin Babin of New I
Orleans. The exact manner in which the I
.ire originated is not known. Strenuous
efforts were made by the employds to stay I
the rapid progress of the fames, but the t
task proved hopeless. The destruction of
this property is a severe loss and backset to I
our esteemed friend Mr. Landry, and his f
misfortune is much regretted by all who L
know him. i

SuoAR SQUIDn.-Still another week of fine
weather for plantation work has been
vouchsafed to our sugar producers, and a
big crop is now assured to most of them.
The yield has been steadily increasing dur
ing the past five or six weeks and has in
most instances reached a point seldom
passed in Louisiana. Three thousand
pounds of sugar per acre has ceased to be
an exceptioual figure; 4000 is being secured
on a number of plantations and we have
heard a report that a claim of 5000 is about
to be put in by a well known Ascension
Wednesday was, we believe, the coldest
day of the season, and its low temperature
Incited a majority of planters to stop their
mills and go to windrowing. Their sugar
houses will be steaming again on Monday.
Mr. Henry Cook was the first Ascension
planter to finish grinding. He wound up
oniThursday, the 20th, just one month after
starting his mill, and has made 6034 hogs
heads of fine sugar from 29 acres of cane.
As we remarked last week, he would have
been satisfied with 40 hogsheads at the be
gining of the season.
At Mr. Beirne's magnificent Clark planta
tion plant cane is now yielding fully 4000
pounds of sugar to the acre; 700,000 pounds
have been manufactured to date and the
cane yet to be ground is expected to yield
000,000 pounds. If this anticipation is real
ized, Clark will probably lead all the Beirne
places in the matter of yield for the present
Mr. Beirne's Donaldson ph:ce, the syrup
from which is being granulated at the
Clark sugar-house, has niade 400,000 .) ounds
to date and will give about 300,000 more.
The combined crop of Orange Grove and
Conway will not fall far below that of Clark
Mr. Adelard Landry will make over 300
hogsheads this year, or three times last
year's crop. His son, Mr. R. O. Landry
has 149 htogsheads to date and expects to
reach 185. V
Mr. Leon Babin will finish grinding by
Friday next, and will realize about 51 hogs
heads-a fine crop for his small place. He
has sold about eight acres of splendid cane
to the owners of Belle Terre plantation.
Mr. Baibin ground some cane for Jules
Plaisance, a colored neighb,;-, which
yielded 6 hogsheads of sugar and 6 barrels
At Mrs. Vicknair's Half Way plantation
in Assumption, grinding will be finished by
Friday next, and the total yield will be
about 200 hogxheads.
Mr. Robert Maurin of the same vicinity
is nearly throCgh and his crop will be aboJul
the same at that of the Half \Way place.
On the fine Armelisa place of the Dugas
Bros., near Paincourtville, 480 hogs
sabgs had been made up to Thursday,
with three weeks' work yet in sight. This
place has sent the finest syrup of the season

A NATIONAL LOSS.
Sudden Death of Vice President Thos.
The peo.!e of the United States w,'re
greatly surprised and shocked by the sud
den and wholly unexpected death of HI-on.
Thomas Andrews Hendricks, Vice Presi
dent of the United States, who expired at
his home in Indianapolis, on Wednesdiay
last, the 25th of NoV'ember, at 4:45 o'clock
P. at. The circumstances attending his de
mise were peculiarly distressing to his fam
ily and friends, inasmuch as a fatal termi
nation of the indisposition which had atL
tacked him a few hours before was not
dreamed of, and no one was with him at
the moment of dissolution. Mr. Hendricks
had returned the preceding Saturday from
a visit to Chicago, and complained occa
sionally of pains in his head and breast, but
deemed them nothing serious. Tuesday
night, acconlmanied by his wife, he attend
ed a reception at the residence of Hon. Jno.
J. Cooper, State Treasurer of Indiana, re
turning home in a carriage at midnight
He was clad in a dress suit of lighter ma
terial than the clothing he had been accus
tomed to wear, and during the ride home
ward experienced a feeling of chilliness and
exhaustion which he attributed to malarial
influences. He sat by the fire an hour or
more, declining to send for a physician,
and retiring to bed, slept restlessly until 8
o'clock Wednesday morning. Upon arising,
he ate a hearty breakfast and expressed
himself as feeling very much bettor, walk
ing out with his wife for a half hour and
seemingly regaining his physical vigor. An
hour later, however, he was seized with se
vere pains in the stomach, and the family
physician was summoned. Remedies were
administered which brought the patient
speedy relief, but at brief intervals during
the day the abdominal pains returnef. pro
duciag transitory paroxysms more or less
severe, yet still regarded by Mr. Hendricks
and his family as nothing of an alarming
character. At half past 4o'clock Mrs. Hen
dricks left her husband's bedside to see a
lady caller, and when she returned fifteen
or twenty minutes later, she was unuttera
bly shocked to find Mr. Hendricks dead.
The features wore a natural, placid expres
sion, indicating that the final moment had
come without pain, and that the long and
eventful life of the distinguished man had
closed peacefully and calmly. According
to the diagnosis of the attending physician,
the direct cause of death was paralysis of
Mr. Hendricks was born near Zanesville,
Ohio, September 7, 1819, but his father set
tied in Shelby county, Indiana, during the
year 1822, and that State has ever since
been the home of the subject of this sketch.
At the age of 22 he graduated from Hano
ver College, then studied law two years at
Chamnbersburg, Pa., and was admitted to
the bar. Returning to Indiana, he hung
out a shingle and established a practice that
was lucrative and successful almost from its
inception. In 184-3 Mr. Hendricks began
his official career as a member of the State
Legislature, and two years later served in a
convention that framed a new constitution
for the State. During the next five years he
represented his district in Congress, and
for four years subsequently held tie post of
Land Commissioner under appointment
by President Pierce. In 1S(X) he was Demo
cratic candidate for Governor of Indiana,
but was defeated by Henry S. Lane. Two
years later his party carried the Legislature
and elected him to the United States Senate
for the term ending in 1869. Ile was the
leading caudidate for the presidential nom
ination before the Donuocratic National
Convention of 18;, but was finally beaten
by Horatio Seymour, principally because of
the bitter opposition of the Ohio delegation
to the Indiana candidate. In 1`72 Mr. Hen
dricks was elected Governor of Indiana. In
I76 hlie was ca:ndilate for Vice President on
the ticket headed by Gov. Tilden of New
York, and the history of the remarkable
contest of that year-which ended in the
success of the Republican candidates
through the instrumentality of the Electo
ral Commiission-is still fresh in the public
ftrind. Last year the Indiana statesman
was again a nominee of the Democracy for
Vice President, and this time lie was suc
cessful, his party securing an undisputed
majority of the Electoral College for the
first time since 1856.
His domestie relations were of the happi
est character. Blessed with a brilliant and
devoted wife, to whose counsel and assist
ance his legal and political advancement
eare in no small measure due, he recipro
cated her affection with equal warmth, and
their fondness for each other's society ap
)pered to increase with their advancing
years. They had but one child and it died
at the age of 3 year-s, before the parents
moved from Shelbyville to Indianapolis,
now almost thirty years ago. The only near
relatives left by Mr. Hendricks beside his
grief stricken widow are a brother at Shel
byville and a married sister in New York.
Throughout his long and eventful public
career Mr. Iendricks maintained a reputa
tion untarnishied by a suspicion of corrup
tion. His brilliant abilities, pure charac
tar, ai.tinguisihed public services and genial
personal qualities made him deservedly
popular at home and abroad, and constitu
ted him indeed one of the foremost men of
the nation. The death of such a citizen may
well be termed a national bereavement. In
the presence of the Grim Destroyer the po
litical opposition and rancor of the past are
forgotten. Rerembering only the predom
inant virtues and honorable life of the dis
tinguished man, the people without distinc
tion regret his loss and will unite in perpet
nating and honoring his memory.
The funeral is to take place at Indiauapo- n
lis on Tuesday next. and it will be of an im- i
posing charactter befitting the prominent
position and exalted worth of the eminent
deceased. From all parts of the country
and all classes of people have come expres
Sions and evidences of sorrow which show
how profoundly the heart of the nation has
been stirred by the sudden and unlooked
for taking off of the Vice President. Presi
dent Cleveland and the Governors of the
various States have issued proclamations
deploring the sad event and directing that
public buildings be draped in mourning,
flags displayed at half mast and govern
mental business suspended the afternoon of
Good News of Good Things.

The Royal Baking Powder received the highest award over all competitors at
the Vienna World's Exposition, 1t73; at the Centennial, Philadelphia, lb76; at the
American Institute, I ew York, and at State Fairs throughout the country.
No other article of human food has ever received such high, emphatic, and uni
versal endorsement from eminent chemists, physicians, scientists, and Boards of
Health all over the world.
NoTE-The above DIAGRAM illustrates the comparative worth of various Baking
Powders, as shown by Chemical Analysis and experiments made by Prof. Schedler.
A pound can of each powder was taken, the total leavening power or volume In
each can calculated, the result being as indicated. This practical test for worth by
Prof. Schedler only proves what every observant consumer of the Royal Baking
Powder knows by practical experience, that, while it costs a few cents per pound
more than ordinary kinds, it is far more economical, and, besides, affords the advan
tage of better work. A single trial of the Royal Baking Powder will convince any
fair-minded person of these facts.
* While the diagram shows some of the alum powders to be of a higher degree
of strength than other powders ranked below them, it is not to be taken as indicat
ingthat they have any value. All alum powders, no matter how high their strength,
re to be avoided as dangerous.
