I- ; d Fourth of July Celebration and Fes tival of Nations Under Auspices d of Mohawk Tribe a Big Success- e Over $500 Cleared. 0 With an enjoyable dance in Red Men Hall as its concluding feature, Mohawk Tribe's unique three-day ýf Festival of Nations was brought to . a close Monday night, after realizing . in the fullest degree the claims k made 'by its originators that it would ba e one of the most original and in a teresting affairs of its kind ever e given here. The measure of success t- achieved by the delightful entertain s ment exceeded the most sanguine expectations of the promoters and attests in a convincing manner the wide popularity of the Red Men order throughout this section, besides re d flecting much credit upon the inde fatigable ladies and gentlemen, mem bers of Mohawk Tribe and Napanee if Council, Degree of Pocahontas, who n planned the details of the novel af fair and directed its management. t The gross receipts totalled $1003.60, 4 and the net profit will be in ex cess of $500. The festival opened auspiciously Saturday evening with a Fourth of duly celebration and patriotic dis play. Dr. Paul T. Thibodaux, sachem of Mohawk Tribe, officiated as mas ter of ceremonies, and eloquent ad n dresses were delivered by Mayor Wal ter I.emann, Dr. J. E. Doussan of Lutcher, great sachem of the Lou isiana reservation, and Great Prophet SPeter Bylsmal of Napoleonville. The speakers addressed the crowd from the second-story gallery of Red Men Hall, their auditors being grouped in the street below. A fine display of` fireworks preceded the forensic feature of the program and the American flag was raised with in spiring effect during the exercises, fountains of colored fire illuminat ing the scene as Old Glory was un furled to the breeze. On Sunday a convocation of Hay makers was held in Red Men Hall from 1 to 3 o'clock p. m., when a large number of "bums" were initiat ed into the mysteries of the fun and good-fellowship degree by Mo hawk Hayloft No. 331. At 5 o'clock a burlesque Haymak ers' parade traversed Mississippi s'treet and Railroad avenue, being compelled to disband by a downpour of rain before completing the route of maroh. The display, ranging in character of features from the grotesque to the beautiful, was one of the cleverest and most laughable seen here in years, and was witnessed by a big crowd of spectators, in cluding many visiting Red Men from Geismar, Napoleonville, Thibodaux, Plaquemine, Whitecastle, St. James and other points. Monday's program included a live stock conference in Red Men Hall at 6 p. m., at which addresses were de ltvere4 by Dr. W. H. Dalrymple and E. L. Jordan, of the Louisiana State University, who discussed topics ap pertaining to stock raising and feed ing and imparted much valuable in formation on these subjects. The entries in the poultry show were judged by Mr. Jordan and Mrs. G. D. Bentley, and blue and red ribbons were presented to the' prize winners in the various classes. A numinber of high-grade birds were exhibited ane this feature of the festival prov ed larticularly interesting. Another display that attracted much attention was the Donaldson ville booth, wherein was shown many of the truck and farm products grown in this vicinity, exemplifying the extent to which diversified farming is already practiced here and demon strating some of the possibilities for money-making along this line. The display included an exhibit of canned goods puit up by local householders, supplementing an extensive showing of the products of the Elm Hall can nery in Assumption parish, and spe cimens of every vegetable, fruit, flower and staple crop grown in this section, that are in season, were to be seen. The attractively decorated booths containing the various attractions of the festival were located in the Vega building, and numerous nations were represenit+d by lovely young women ;garbed in the national dress of the respective countries. The pair of registered thorough 'bred Duroc-Jersey pigs from Evan J. McCall's Evan Hall hog farm, Mo hawk Chiel I and Napanee Queen I, were won by Wallie Higgason, who immediately disposed of them to Charles Wilbert, Sr., of Plaquemine. These pigs were born March 1 and 6, respectively, and weighed 55 and 50 pounds on July 4. Paul Gisclard's guess of $1002.95 as the gross receipts of the festival was the closest made, and he was awarded the gold-handled umbrella donated by F. L. Trepagnier. The beautiful Japanese kimono em broidered by Miss Amelie Cire was won by Miss Adele Duhon, of Ba ton Rouge. "Miss Vella LeBlanc was the fortunate winner of the silver handled umbrella donated by M. Schneider. The I. O. R. M. gold emblem was won by J. C. Babin, who presented it to Oscar Comeaux. In the contest between the Loyal Order of Moose and the Woddmen of the World, the gold emblem of fered as the prize was captured by the latter organization. The con testants in the Speaking Leaf con test failed to secure the required number of subscriptions and were awarded ten per cent of the amount collected. Great Sachem Doussan proved the champion gumbo eater, consuming five plates in one sleep, while G. P. Reynolds of New Orleans, great ju uior sagamore, carried off the lau ,rels as champion ice cream absorb er, his record being three gallons in one sleep. Kalil Jacob Arrested in Trinidad.

July 11. 1914. ON behalf of the members of Mohawk Tribe No. 33, Improved Order of Red Men, we de sire to express our great appreciation of the as sistance rendered by the people of this com munity in celebrating our nation's birthday. and making our "Festival of Nations" the grati fying success that it was. We feel that this "greatest Fourth of July celebration in the history of Donaldsonville," as some people termed it, was made possible by the unlimited moral support we received from the palefaces of our city and parish. It makes us feel that Mohawk Tribe of Red Men is a real live factor in the upbuilding of our hunting groumns, and that the old prejudice against the primitive Red Men is being gradually supple mented by a feelingof appreciation of theirgood traits, as exemiplified by the Improved Order of Red Men. on the part of the paleface nation. The financial returns of our festival were very satisfactory, and Vould have been larger but for one feature of our program which was not ad vertised, namely, the rain. Possibly we may be termed "rainmakers" instead of Haymakers. But, "Ich-Ga-BibbIe," everybody had a good time, anyway. - Again thanking everybody who donated, help ed, Ioaned, patronized or assisted in any man ner whatever, and trusting they will understand the impracticability of thanking everyone in person, we remain, in the cause of Freedom.
