FOUNTAIN, Secy. Acrostic to Earl Cuevas. Ever and Onward! be your aim; Anon, let dullards dream in vain. Rise to the highest, nor ever falter! Later you’ll lead your bride to the altar. Cause not a tear in her eye to appear Unless you would her inspire with fear; Ever keep tender regard in your heart. Verily ’tis better than to quarrel with zest, And, with a bright smile, no matter how •vexed— She will meet you half way; that is the best. L. F. H. TO ADELE. A face so fair, a smile so sweet, ne’er it hath it been my lotto meet; Dressed in simplicity, a gown of pure white; \ Eyes of deep darkness tnat vie with the night; Loving and tender, honest aj*d true; may Each year bring honors, dear Adele, to you.

Lester, noted convict, who was confined in the penitentiary serving a life sentence for murder, has escaped for the second time within tho last four weeks. Lester was complaining of be ing ill and was confined in the hospital at the Rankin farm. Thursday morning, when the quarters were visited at the usual time, it was found that Lester had made his escape. He had taken up the planks from the floor of his cell and had gotted out through a vault under neath the cell.

To the Editor of The Tlmes-Picayune: I wish to call your attention to the fact that the mosquitoes have increased wonderfully since the Conservation Commission has been formed. For the protection of game about four years ago they passed a law in Louisiana to prohibit the burning of the marshes and prairies. And since then the mosquitoes increase every year. By burning the marshes, it is claimed, mos quitoes, their broods and breeding places are destroyed. Please look into this matter and see if you cannot go back to the old way and burn the marshes at the proper time. CHARLES SANGER. A pretty event of the week was the dinner given Tuesday evening at the residence of Dr.and Mrs. C. L. Horton, in Carroll avenue, by Miss Jean Horton in compliment to the members of the M. O. D. Club, and which was not only a beautiful affair but one that proved most enjoyable. Shasta daisies as the keynote of the decorations, charmed the eye on every side and appealed to the artistic sense. In the center of the table a hand-basket of daisies, with their wide, white petals and wondrous rings of sun-kissed yellow, formed an attractive center piece, while on the table daisies, long-stemmed, intrtwin ed the embroidery of the table damask. A fitting ensemble with the wide-awake daisies was the bevy of bright-faced girls, seated at the festal board, and who compose that social organization of the girls of the younger set of our town. The menu was appealing, inviting, and full justice was done thereto as the dif ferent courses were served in their res pective order. Wit and repartee, bon mots, the bright sayings of vivacious school girls; sparkling, effervescing, held sway, and, at the conclusion of the final course, came to au end a most charming event, —and another chapter in the history of the M, U. D. club has been indellibiy inscribed. Mrs. Horton assisted her daughter in receiving and was assisted by Mrs. George Edwards and Mrs. George Muller.
