Same old story.
Lefebvre's peerless pitching, W.
Prejean's and Brockman's punk ield
ing, and the kindly way in which the
Persimmontown sluggers took to Gon
dulfi's benders are the causes which
contributed to the defeat of the Don
a!dsonville Blues by the Plaquemine
Mat onus at Cleveland Park last Sun
day afternoon. The score was 8 to 5,
and the sad spectacle was witnessed
ty upwards of nearly 700 faithful fans,
practically all of whom were sup
porters of the locals.
Gondoli yielded thirteen bingles, a
majority of which came when the
bases were populated and hits meant
runs. The support accorded him was
ali to the bad, six ehastly miscues
being chalked up by the Blues at crit
ical moments in the contest. Lefebvre,
as usual, was in superb form, only
three safeties being secured off his
delivery, while seven Donaldsonvil
lians succumbed to his foolers and
went out on strikes.
Features of the game were sen
sational catches of high flies by Cen
telr Fielder 11. Weber and Second
laseman MI urch of the locals and
lipiht Fielder Miller of the visitors,
lcCour:viiie's throwing to bases, and

The Gulf Coast Stars, an aggrega
tion of speedy players hailing from
the Gulf Coast and other minor
leagues in this sectiogof the country,
hooked up with the Blues at Cleveland
Park this afternoon and ran away
with the game in the fifth inning, when
they scored five runs on a bum de
cision by Umpire Landry, followed by
errors by Murch and Huber and a
timely hit. Left Fielder Harry Weber
of the Blues presented the visitors
with two more tallies in the eighth,
when he muffed a long fly to his terri
tory which should have been an easy
out. Although Gondolti was touched
up for eleven hits, he pitched a nice,
heady game, and would have won in a
walk with better support. Features of
the mix-up were a couple of beauty
catches by Center Fielder Robert Pre
jean of the Blues, both of which re
suited in double plays; a sensational
catch by Second Baseman Williamson
oi the Stars, and the batting of Sen

Farmers' Union Picnic and Barbecue.
The Ascension Parish Association
of the Farmers' Co-operative and Ed
ucational Union of America, com
prising the several local branches of
the parent organization, held its tri
monthly convention, picnic and barbe
cue on Saturday last, the 21st inst.,
at Black Bayou grove, in the seventh
ward. The attendance included a
large proportion of the farmers of
the seventh and eighth wards, together
with their wives and children, and
was variously estimated at from 1500
to 1800 souls. Parish President George
W. Rice, of St. Amant, presided over
the meeting, which was held in the
Black Bayou schoolhouse. After
transacting routine business the as
sociation took a recess at noon and
repaired to the adjacent grove, where
a platform had been erected for the
convenience of the speakers. C. C.
Black, of East Baton Rouge parish,
one of the state oficers of the union,
was the orator of the occasion and
delivered an eloquent and forceful ad
dress on an appropriate topic. In
teresting speedhes were also made by
Parish Lecturer W. A. Sibley, of the
eighth ward, and Attorney C. C.
Weber, of Donaldsonviile. Enjoyable
features of the occasion were the
sumptuous repast served in the open
air by the ladies of the association
and the exquisite music furnished by
the well-trained Dutchtown Brass
Death of Mrs. (. Adolph Oondran.
In the fullness of a lovely young
womanhood, surrounded by the ador
intr affection of husband and children
in an e"vironrment of home lifo that was
ideal because she made it so, Annie
McCormick Gondran, wife of District
Attorney G. Adolph Gondran,
passed into the Great Unknown at
12:30 o'clock Thursday morning. The
sorrow that shadows the Gondran
home broods alike upon nearly every
home in Donaldsonville, for her in
fluence, socially and otherwise-her
gifts as a hostess and the rare charac
teristics which distinguished her as a
wife, a mother and a friend-made her
one of the best loved and most ar
dently admired women of the com
munity. Four little children are left
to face the problem of life, denied the
guiding spirit of the holiest love on
earth-the youngest a week-old baby
girl, whose soul grew into being in
her mother's supreme sacrifice upon
the altar of maternity. Mrs. Gondran
was 31 years of age, a daughter of the
late Dr. P. J. McCormick of Yazoo
City, Miss., and was married twelve
years ago to Hon. G. Adolph Gou
dran of this city. Yesterday forenoon
at 9 o'clock all that was mortal of the
young wife and mother was laid to
rest among the trees and flowers of the
Catholic cemetery, following services
at the Church of the Sacred Heart,
Revs. J. M. T. Massardier and J. H.
Cartisser officiating. Ascension Coun
cil No. 1087, Knights of Columbus, of
which Mr. Gondran is a prominent
member, attended in a body, and the
funeral was unusually large and im
pressive. Many beautiful floral of
ferings testified to the general love
and esteem in which the deceased was
held, and the solemnity which lies
upon this community like a paill is the
unconscious tribute of respect that the
living are paying to the memory of
one so worthy of remembrance and
regard. Mrs. Gondran is survived
by her husband and four young chil
dren-two sons and two daughters
and several devoted sisters and broth
ers. The Chief extends its deepest
and truest sympathy to these bereaved
ones, who must learn to bravely face
life in its new meaning, remembering
"The path of sorrow, and that path alone
Leads to the lands where sorrow is unknown."

The Lynnwood Company, which
made such a favorable impression
here last season, will hold the boards
at the G(orcdran Theatre nm t Tuesday
and Wednesday, Oct. 1 and 2, pre
senting "The Winning Hand" Tues
day night and at amatinee Wednesday
afternoon, and "The Fatal Wedding"
Wednesday night. Little Sarah
Shields will have an important part
in the former production, as will also
her twin brother, Master Santos
Shields, while little Bernie Shields
will be seen as a tough newsboy, a
character in which he is said to be in
imitable. This clever trio of Shields
children will no doubt prove a strong
drawing-card, aside from the well
known excellence of the play and com
pany. "The Winning Hand" is a
portrayal of New York life that not
only reveals the most interesting types
of the areat metropolis, but sets them
moving in a story that for exciting
situations, thrilling climaxes, de
lightful comedy -episodes and spark
ling dialogue, easily occupies a fore
most place in the realm of melodrama.
"The Fatal Wedding" has been seen
here before and is a strong favorite
with local theatre-goers.
The only bona tide production of
actual scenes founded on facts con
nected with the celebrated Latnana
kidnapping case is said to be given
by the Hand of )Death Company,
which will be the attraction at the
Gondran Theatre on. Saturday, Oct.
5. The play is sanctioned by the
Anti-Black Hand Society of New
York city, an organization composed
of naturalized Italian citizens of. the
United States, and formed for the pur
pose of suppressing the notorious
Black Hand society in this country.
Commenting upon a performance by
the Hand of Death Company, the New
York World says: "The fire and
transformation scenes are master
pieces of the stage carpenter's art,
and the electrical effects are wonder
ful. The weird vault scene, taken
from the old St. Louis cemetery in
New Orleans, is especially noticeable."
The Mobile Register says: "While
highly sensational, the performance
depends upon its thrilling scenes to
hold it up, and the vault scene is de
cidedly gruesome. The specialties are
Miss Alma Hearn, the well-known
emotional actress, comes to the Gon

drama of unusual merit.
A. Pelletier, the efficient engineer of
the Evan Hall factory in upper As
cension, returned Monday night-from
New Orleans, where he went ounThurs
day of last week to place his twelve
year-old daughter in the New Orleans
Sanitarium for treatment for an ugly
sore which had developed on her leg.
It seems that while playing about the
house some time ago the little girl
struck her leg violently against a
chair. Nothing was thought of the
injury at the time, but several days
later a painful sore appeared on the
spot and Dr. John D. Hanson was
summoned. Upon his advice the
child was conveyed to New Orleans
for treatment at the hands of a speci
alist, and a successful operation was
performed upon her at the Sanitarium
in that city shortly after her arrival.
Mr. Pelletier states that when he left
New Orleans Monday evening the lit
