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
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
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
Refreshments were always ready in tho
house for the perspiring and thirsty at
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
Very Rev. Father Henry Leduc, Pastor of Onr Lady of the Gulf Church.
The above picture represents that
of the beloved pastor of Our Lady of
the Gulf Catholic church, of Bay St.
Louis, Rev. Father H. Leduc, who is
well -known and who holds the es‘
teem, respect, and high regard of
every woman, man and child, regard
less of denomination, in this city and
the surrounding country.
Rev. Father Leduc was bora on
January jj 1, 1835, at Nantes, France.
After being raised to Holy Orders,
he came to America as a missionary,
and entered the Diocese at Natchez.
Shortly afterwards, about 18G0, the
good and noble Father was called to
Bay St. Louis to succeed Rev,
Father Stanislaus Buteux, since
which lime he has ever continued to
devote all his love and labor to (he
wants of his people—not only spirit
ually is Father Leduc ever ready to
tender his services but for all tempo
ral matters.
He has always been and is a con
stant source of great consolation to
the people when iu sorrow. In the 1
yellow fever epidemic of ’7B ho work
ed faithfully and incessantly day
and night for the spiritual and tem
poral relief of the poor afflicted.
He has worked hard but success
fully to attain the high prosperity of
his flock, so largely has it grown and
steadily increasing that an assistant
priest was necessaiy. 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

At about 9 o’clock tliere were assem

in the rear and vtho moments took their
speedy like flight. Refreshments and an
abundance of choice cakes were frequent
ly served. At about 1 o’clock the young
people bade their kind host and hostess

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.
