The Select Basket Picnic Turned Ont as a Grand Success and Was Universally Enjoyed. Throughout our civilised world, Easter Monday is considered a legal holiday on which every one, young and old, seem to take advantage of and enjoy themselves as much as possible. Easter Monday hist will long be remem bered by the young folks of our city, es pecially those who were fortunate enough to attend the basket picnic given on the Saucier farm, on Jordan’s peaceful hanks, some Cor 7 miles from the Bay. Never in the annals of Bay St- Louis’ history was a picnic more of a success than the above named; 'tis true that the boys had many a wiry foe to battle with, whose tongues were kept in constant motion in attempting to frustrate the efforts of the hoys who were trying to celebrate the day in the most joyous manner possible. Aftsr several meetings were held it was concluded to pay no attention to the slan derous remarks made by certain parties and also to treat them with silent con tempt. There were about 60 invitations issued, but owing to the above alludud to re marks a number of persons did not attend nevertheless our picnic was largely at tended ami not oue can say that they did not enjoy themselves. At about 8 a. in. tho people began ar riving at Mrs. breath’s and at 8:30 the caravan, which Consisted of three large : wagons and ■several private vehicles started np Front street in the direction Of Waveland. On the way they stopped and took on several more persons. Arriving at Nicholson avenue they turned down in the direction of the woods, stopping at Mr. I Ilium’s store Where refreshments and sweetmeats were purchased to en liven the crowd. Nature was wrapped in her glorious verdant robe, the sun shone bright and warm and everything seemed appropriate to the occasion, even the birds warbled in delight when they be held the -joyous crowd. Songs of all kinds, from opera to the common every day ballads, were indulged in, cheers of jollification sounded through the stately sighing pines and echoed from tho dis tance. Arriving at their destination tho revel-1 ers in their joyous moods repaired partly to the spacious rooms of tho grand old farm house where they hegau dancing ami partly to the beautiful oak-shudow ed hanks of the peaceful Jordan river, which rippled in her downward course to the hrimy sea and seemed reluctant to leave or flow past the scene of such festi-! vity. After admiring nature’s lovelyi sward, ball playing was indulged in by' tho hoys audit was so much of an intox-' ioAting pleasure that they very relunctly left, it when called to dine. Those whom wore not engaged in playing h; ll took the ladies out rowing on the river, which in its self was equally intoxicating. At noon a long table was spread on the lient porch covered with the daintiest and choicest variety of eatables and sweet meats; everything in that line that a per son could desire was to ho seen and had from nuts of all kinds to the choicest of cakes, pies and fruits. Mrs. Breath and Mrs. Gardehled presided over the table with sublime alacrity and did their part with educated taste. The table not being sufficient to accommodate the entire crowd one half or so were obliged to wait for the second table and.as.thern.was any, amount of food and etc. The’latter party did not miss anything, for as soon as the first crowd had finished, the table was cleared and reset with tho same varieties, therefore no partially was shown. After partaking their repast the jolly crowd scattered over tho palmetto cover ed woods and enjoyed themselves in dif ferent ways—such as promenading, mak ing fans, rings and etc. of palmetto, and conversation beneath the spreading boughs of tho grand old oaks. Boating was renewed and also baseball, the latter was r&ij interesting owing to there being two picked nines, which before they were finished were called in to t ake part in tho over interesting and exciting dance, Dan Tucker. Refreshments were always ready in tho house for the perspiring and thirsty at tendants. When tho lurid rays of the sun began getting dim and tho .sub herself could he seen departing behind the tall and stately pines,; the young men armed with knives and hatchets repaired to the wood and returned with arms full of palmettos which the young ladies lost no time in placing about tho wagons, accompanied with green moss, etc. A horn was blown and songs and cheers rent the air as a farewell greeting to tho place, where so many happy moments were spent during tho day. Again through tho wood tho wagons wont, hut this time homeward bound. Not one could but truthfully say that they left the_ place very relunctly and at any time in tho future would glad ly return on a similar occasion. Returning homo by way of Nicholson avenue and Front street. AR along the way songs and cheers wore to ho heard above the din and roar of the salty surf of tho Gulf. • • The picnic was an elegant affair and a perfect success in every particular, jt was well, by several aged ladies and gentlemen- The merry picnicers, not willing to part so soon from enjoyment gathered at Mrs Breath’s and indulging in dances until about 10:30 when they departed for their different homes and then to lay their weary heads iutho evcf-sootUiug arms of Morpheus, Very Rev.

To lill the want of an assistant Rev, Father Alphonse Keittel was appointed to lill the place. Birthday Party, One of tho most enjoyable social events of'the past week was ..the birthday party given by Mr. and Mrs. Luoieu Baron at their elegant “cottage by tho sea” in honor of their, charming anil gnusiosa daughter, Miss Mamie.

Call and exam ine, Father Lcduc has not only endear ed himself to his people but to the general public for his public spirit. In 1880 he made a subscription for a town clock to be placed Ju the belfry of the^church. The amount neces sary was quickly raised, and to-day do we people thank him for this com modity and ornament of our city. By his goodness and overflowing love the name of Father Deduc has become a household word, cherished and honored. The church of Our Lady of the Gulf was built in the year of ,1850 by Rey, Father Buteux. Since Father Lcduc has been in charge of the church it has undergone an immense change, in fact almost a t ’place. It is the largest and most magnificent church of its kind on the gulf coast. The interior is something of rare beauty and grandeur. The good Father is constantly improving and beautifying the church and spares no efforts iu that direction. The good qualities and innumer able deeds of charity and kindness the good Father has subjected him self to could fill many columns, but as he is so universally known and Ibis intended as a brief sketch, the writeij will not attempt logo into de tails but his past life of usefulness has been upon the spot less pages, never to lie effaced but to blossom into the fruit of eternal reward which awaits good, noble, charitable, kind, zealous and saintly Father Leduc.
