The annual meeting of the stock holders of the Commercial and Sav ings Bank was held Tuesday after noon at the banking-house in Rail road avenue. By a unanimous vote the present directors of the insti tution were re-elected, namely: Al bert Delery, Achilie I. Picard, Leon Kessler, J. J. Lafargue and W. L. Tearney. At a session of the direct ors following the .tckholders' meet ing, the capable officers who have so efficiently and successfully directed the active management of the bank's affairs for the past year were unan imously retained for another twelve month term of service, as follows: Al bert Delery, president and cashier; A. I. Picard, vice president; Sam. M. Richard, assistant cashier. Reports submitted showed the af fairs of the bank to be in splendid condition. Established only since February of last year, with a capital of $30,000 and surplus of $3000, the institution is starting the new year in its own building, recently pur chased at a cost of $5000. and with deposits aggregating $128,029.38. In view of the improved conditions now existing throughout this section, as compared with those prevailing when the bank was organized, the stock holders, friends and patrons of the institution are confident the measure of growth achieved in 1910 will be surpassed in the busy year to come. Castagnos Company to Build Factory. Negotiations are pending whereby the Castagnos Cane Loader Conpany will purchase from the liquidator cd the Bank of Donaldsonville the lot at the corner of Railroad avenue and Albert street, presently occupied by the Donaldson Lumber Yard. The cane loader concern proposes to erect a factory on the rear portion of the I property, which has a depth of some thing like 200 feet, and the lumber yard will continue to occupy its pres ent location. Since the destruction of its plant by fire a few years ago the Castagnos Company has manu factured its loaders at a local foun- I dry, but the business of the concern has grown to such an extent that more extensive facilities for turning out loaders had to be provided, and the company has decided to build a plant of its own. It is expected that work on the structure will begin as soon as the deal for the purchase of c the site has been consummated. _________________I is The Sale You Have Been Waiting F, ie Our great winter clearance sale o h- seasonable merchandise will begin Monday, Jan. 15, and continue Len days.

Proofs of loss were ned by Mr. Goette, in behalf of the e company, Tuesday, Jan. 9, and 'ere forwarded to M. B. Griffin, spe ial agent of both insurance compan ies, by Mr. Sims, their local agent, the same evening. Checks in full set tlement of the claims against the two companies were mailed to Mr. Sims Wednesday, and he turned them over to Mr. Goette the following morning, the adjustment and settlement having been consummated in less than 30 days after the loss. This speaks well for the companies, for under their contract they are entitled to 60 days in which to make settlement, after satisfactory proof of loss has been ascertained and valuations appraised. Mr. Sims is justly .oud of being the local representative of such high grade companies. Gravel Roads Repair The gravel roads in th e t dis trict of the parish, extending from the Iberville line to a point about e miles below Donaldsonville on '"e river, and from Donaldsonville to the Assumption line on both sides of Ba you Lafourche, have been thoroughly repaired with washed gravel and are now in splendid condition. The work of extending the river road from its present terminus to the St. James line, a distance of 4.7 miles, is pro gressing rapidly, and more than one thousand feet of the highway has been constructed. This stretch of road is being surfaced with washed gravel, and judging from the appear ance and condition of the portion al ready completed, will be one of the finest pieces of roadway in the first district. Weber & Peterson have the contract for building the road, and the work is being clone under the per sonal supervision of Harry Weber. Epworth Leaguers Entertained. A pleasant social event for the chil dren of the Junior Epworth League of the Methodist church was a "pink t social" at the home of J. C. Kirch berg, the superintendent, Frily af ternoon. After various interesting games refreshments were served in the dining-room, which was attract ively decorated in pink. A large pink d 211 in the center of the table, and sff' all dolls at each girl's plate to be carried home as souvenirs, were dress ed in pink, while the boys were each given a pink bag of marbles and a miniature ship. Mr. and Mrs. George Avery added to the pleasure of the a occasion by furnishing music, both in strumental and vocal. t At a Methodist church conference t last Monday night, George Avery was elected church lay leader for the year. J. C. Kirchberg, Hudson Hunley, Mrs. C. Wintter and Mrs. W. S. Gary were appointed as the missionary commit-h tee, and committees were named to supervise the planting of flowers and ~ shrubbery in the church yard, and to look into the mager of giving the church a coat of ±~esh paint.

Sec st retary E. P. Gueymard of the Jeffer son Highway West Bank Association, e in a letter announcing the meeting, I. says: "We still feel that we are en r; titled to the highway, and that the de l. cision given at New Orleans by Man 1s ager Clarkson ought not to be the - final determination of the contest. i- Since this decision interested parties ). from different sections of the state n have made representations to the of ficials of the west bank association y that a further fight should be carried ;t on, and that these various interests e would combine to force recognition i, of tle advantages of the west side. e Every citizen of the west bank is ur e gently invited to attend the meeting .s and be prepared to express practi cal ideas as to how this fight should g be made. We are to going to have e the highway markings if possible, but e in any event we are going to so put our house in order that we will reap n the benefits of this highway whether n we have the official markings or not." Delegation om Marksville, Thi hodaux and r points will be pres ent at the mieting, and it is hoped that the wei 1ank territory between Port Allen and New Orleans will be a largely represented, so that concert I ed action can be taken looking t eration of the west ba ganization and the carrying on o aggressive campaign of road building that will further increase the advan tages and superiority of the west - bank route over its east bank com petitor.

Hanson, formerly in charge of the Lemann Company's Peytavin plantation near Donaldsonville, and for the past two years located in Por to Rico as manager of the Central Fortuna plantation at Fortuna, ar rived here this week for an indefinite stay, and is being warmly greeted by his numerous friends. His wife pre ceded him to Donaldsonville a few months ago and has been the guest of relatives since her arrival. Mr. Hanson's health has been impaired to some extent as a result of his resi dence in Porto Rico, and it is likely he will remain in "the States" until he has fully recuperated. While regretting his indisposition, his host of friends hereabout are delighted to have him and his charming wife among them once more, and trust their visit will be prolonged to the ut most limit permitted by circum stances.

The torpedo boat destroyers Ster etc. ionahan and Lamson, which had been in port here since Jan. 2, de parted at noon last Saturday for Pla qucmine. Officers and crews of the vessels expressed keen appreciation of the hospitality extended them by the people of this city. Donaldson viyle, on the other hand, derived much pleasure from the visit of the war craft and bade good-bye to its guests with reluctance and genuine regret. Never has this port been visited by a better-behaved or more gentlemanly set of man-o'-warsmen than those comprising the crews of the Sterett, Monaghan and Lamson. Seven re cruits were enlisted here, namnely: Duke Babin, Frank Spracino and Thomas Giardino, Donaldsonville; Earl Marchand and Paul Bourg, Dar row; Edward Goetz, Napoleonville, ana Eric Roger, Thibodaux. These young men departed last Saturday aboard the destroyers. A number of others evinced a desire to enlist, and I it is believed several more recruits will be secured from this point. Gray--Landry.
