LOCALS WIN ACAIN,
Baton Rouge Trimmed in Interesting
Game by Count of 11 to 4-Home
Boys Show Fine Form-Nine
Donaldsonville romped away with
the big end of a 11-to-4 score in a
well-played game with the Baton
Rouge team at A-muz-u Park last
Sunday afternoon. D'Alemberte
pitched unbeatable ball for the locals
and deserved a shut-out, but with
a lead that couldn't be overcome our
boys slowed up in the ninth and
permitted the visitors to annex four
tallies. Several fast plays were pulled
off by both sides, and the steady,
clean playing throughout was much
appreciated by the fans.
The locals exhibited better form
than in any game this season and
clearly outplayed their opponents in
every department. Their hitting
showed marked improvement, a total
of ten safeties being garnered off
Murphy's delivery, including a two
bagger by Bouchereau and a triple by
I Hugh LeBlanc. In the field their
work was almost faultless, only two
miscues being chalked up against
them, both of which were committed
in the last frame after the victory
had been safely stowed away.
Some particularly nifty playing was
done in the fourth inning, when a
runner was thrown out at the plate
and the ball heaved to second in
time to complete a double play; and
again in the sixth, when two runners
were trapped between the bases and
The work of the local battery was
excellent, D'Alemberte displaying
good control and a nice variety of
curves, while Creoli performed in fine
style behind the-bat. The playing of
Simoneaux at second, Hubert Richard
at first, and Hugh LeBlane at short
for the locals is deserving of especial
The Baton Rouge boys played the
game hard, but couldn't fathom D'
Alemberte's delivery and broke in

One of the largest and most repre
sentative audiences that has ever
gathered in the spacious lodge room
of the beautiful Elks' Home, men, wo
men and children, assembled at 6
o'clock last Sunday afternoon to sing
the praises of the glorious Ameri
can flag, the occasion being the hold
ing of the annual exercises in obser
vance of flag day by the local lodge
of Elks. Each year on June 14 the
Elks throughout the entire country do
homage to the United States flag and
invite the general public to take part
in a patriotic celebration. The ex
ercises at the local Elks' Home were
the most brilliant and successful that
have been held under the auspices
of the lodge, and the beautiful
ritualistic ceremonies prescribed for
the occasion were carried out in an
impressive manner by Exalted Ruler
Alex. Bloomenstiel and the officers
and members of the organization.
The tribute to the flag by George
S. Gulon, of Napoleonville, was a
gem of diction and delivery, and in
spired in the hearts and minds of
his hearers a greater reverence for
the grand old emblem of freedom and
liberty and a deeper love for the
glorious country over which it proud

soprano voice of rare sweetness and
timbre, and her contributions to the
delightful program were greatly en
Other features of special interest
were a violin and organ duet by
Misses Eunice McGalliard and Marie
Louise Betz, who rendered the "Flow

The most beautiful as well as
prominent social event of recent date
was the marriage of Miss Adele Beu
lah Blum, the popular daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Blum, of this
city, to David Kohlman, a successful
young business man of New Orleans,
which stook place at high noon on
Wednesday at the spacious residence
of the bride's parents in Chetimaches
street, in the presence of the fami
lies and a small number of very close
friends. The drawing-room was a
bower of artistic beauty, being taste
fully decorated with soft maidenhair
ferns, trailing asparagus, Spanish
moss, and a profusion of dainty tulle
I and ribbons. In one corner of the
room an arch entwined with vines
and draped with white flowers on
ribbon streamers and love knots of
tulle, with a background of green and
white, made a lovely setting for the
At the appointed hour and to the
strains of Mendelssohn's wedding
march rendered in a faultless man
ner by Miss Nita Sims, the bridal
party proceeded up the hall, led by
the winsome flower girl, little Kath
erine Conn,. of New Orleans, in a
dainty white lingerie frock with green
ribbons, and carrying a basket filled
with Shasta daisies. Next came the
matron of honor, Mrs. Joseph Conn,
of New Orleans, who was stunning ijs
a handsome gown of- cream lace with l
bodice and tunic of nile green taffeta
and carried a shower bouquet of
white peonies, ferns and valley lil
lies, tied with green tulle. She was
followed by the bride, who entered
leaning on the arm of her father
and was met at the improvised altar
by the groom and his best man,
Nathan Kohlman, of New Orleans.
The men were all attired in white
The bride was charming in an ex
quisite robe of white satin made en
train with a waist of rose point lace
and a tunic of tulle. Her dainty veil
of illusion was arranged cap effect
and was caught up with orange blos
soms and valley lillies, and she car
ried a handkerchief that was used by
her great-grandmother at the latter's
wedding many years ago. The nuptial
flowers were beautiful white peonies
arranged in a shower bouquet with
ferns and valley lillies, tied with
white spangled tulle.
The impressive ceremony from the
Jewish ritual which made the young
couple husband and wife was per
formed by Rabbi Max Heller, of New
Orleans. Congratulations followed,
after which the guests repaired to
the dining-room, where a delicious
two-course luncheon was served. The
bride's table was charmingly laid,
with a center-piece of gorgeous white
hydrangeas and ferns, and the white
and green color scheme was carried
out in the minutest detail. Many
congratulatory toasts were offered to
the happy pair and telegrams galore
bearing good wishes were read from
Following the reception the bride
changed her costume for a chic tray
eiing suit -of navy blue- serge with. a
stylish black hat trimmed with mer
cury wings and jet beads. Mr. and
Mrs. Kohlman left at 2:15 p. m. vja
the steamer Virgie and Mississippi

were accompanied to the boat by a
merry party of friends who showered
theut with rice and congratulations.

Races Temporarily Discontinued.
There will be no races at A-muz-u I
Park for several weeks, owing to the
fact that many of the up-state horses
which have been appearing here this I
season have engagements to partici
pate in meets at Alexandria on July
3, 4 and 5, and at Bunkie on July 8.
It is not practicable to secure any I
New Orleans horses until after July 1
14, when a series of races will be
presented in connection with the an- I
dual celebration of the Fall of the i
Bastile by the French Society of that
city. After these several meets have ]
been concluded, it is the intention of
the A-muz-u Park management to re
sume the matinees at the local track.
If the sport is not patronized more
liberally than it has been heretofore, 4
however, the game will have to be
abandoned, as the attendance at the
meets held this season has not yield
ed sufficient revenue to cover the
purses and other expenses, and the
directors of the A-muz-u Company
have had to go down into their own
pockets to make up the deficit. This 4
is greatly to be deplored, as the races
have not only been of a high stand
ard as regards the time made and
the quality of the sport, but have
served to attract many visitors to
our city, besides furnishing a pleas
ant Sunday afternoon diversion for
our own people. It is to be hoped
the attendance will increase when
the matinees are resumed, so the
-port can be continued throughout

Big Doings in Donaldsonville on Na
tion's Birthday-Record Break
ing Celebration Under Auspices
of Red Men.
There is no doubt about it. The
celebration of the glorious Fourth of
July in Donaldsonville this year un
der the auspices of Mohawk Tribe:
No. 33, I. O. R. M., is going to be the
biggest and grandest blow-out ever fheld
in this section on the occasion of
the nation's birthday, and by the same
token the "Festival of Nations" to
be conducted in connection with the
patriotic demonstration promises to
be one of the most novel, amusing,
instructive and interesting entertain
ments presented here in many years.
Preparations for the big event are
moving smoothly under the direction
of the various committees appointed
to handle the details, and some idea
of the scope of the affair and the re
sults to be achieved may be obtained
when it is stated that in general
charge of the arrangements are such
well-known organizers and boosters
as Dr. P. T. Thibodaux, Mohawk's
zealous sachem; "Boss" F. L. Tre
pagnier, Louis Boston, "Little Bit"
Emile Rodrigue, Earle Binnings, Ana
tole J. Esneault, Leon Weiss, Oscar
Comeaux, and other enthusiastic ited
Men, who have made a success of
every undertaking of this character
with which they havd been affiliated
and may be depended upon to ring
the bell again in this instance. Co
operating with them to the fullest ex
tent are the Chamber of Commerce,
the municipal administration, and all
progressive citizens of the town and
parish, whose united effort can not
fail to produce large results and in
sure the unqualified success of the
movement in whose behalf it is ex

Oil for Street Sprinkling.
The experiment of using crude
Beaumont oil for street sprink
ling purposes as a means of abating
the dust is being tried in that por
tion of Houmas street extending
from Nicholls avenue to Iberville
street, a distance of one block. The
property owners on both sides of the
street are bearing the expense of the
experiment, and if it should prove
successful the municipality will un
dertake to similarly treat any street
or section thereof where the residents
agree to defray the cost. The oil
is furnished by the Texas Oil Com
pany, and the work of applying it
was done Wednesday morning under
the supervision of Sanitary Inspector
Robert Dill. Oiling is generally rec
ognized as the most effective means
of laying dust, and as the cost of the
treatment is trifling in comparison
with the benefits obtained, every cit
izen should be willing to make the
small expenditure necessary to have
the street in front of his premises
treated to an application of the fluid.
M. C. Elks Dedicate Home.
Hon. R. N. Sims, one of the or
ganizers and a past exalted ruler of
Donaldsonville Lodge No. 1153, B. P.

at the brilliant exercises marking the
dedication of The new home of the
Morgan City lodge of Elks last
Sunday night. Mr. Sims is an
enthusiastic "Bill," and as he is
endowed with the gift of oratory in
an unusual degree, it goes without
saying that. he did full justice to the
order andh imself on this happy occa

particularly "enjoyable features of the
evening's program. Mr. Sims states
