Almost each day brings information b of the appearance of small pox in a ti.h new locality and the risk of prepaga , at tion is constautly increasing. The i.disease in usually brought to a place by negroes trampin, through the to country and as Lafayette is a railroad fa- division of some importance its popu lce lation is more exposed to the intro ril duetion of small pox in its midst than ordinary inland towns. It behooves us all then t- exercise the utmost vigi I-i- lance and make use of every available at provision against the introduction and - spread of this most loath some and fa - tal malady. Of all means of protec o tion vaccination is the beat as also the most accessible, and should be eagerly sought by all classes of persons. We even believe vaccination ought to be made compulsory in view of the posi he tive barrier it offers to the communi cation of small pox. The town au les thorities of Lafayette have done wise C. ly to provide free vaccination to the people, thereby encouraging this form of protection to a much greater ex io, tent than would otherwise prevail. )r A large number of persons have alrea- I dy been inoculated but the good work should go on until every man, woman and child in the town and parish has submitted to the little operation 3 that proves such a reliable I safeguard against the contraction of I ir small pox. It is a satisfaction to know, also, that all the necessary arrangements is have been completed for isoluting a. and nursing any accidental case of d small pox that may appear or de- - velop in Lafayette. '5 Leap-Year Dance. d The Leap-Year ballgiven by the young ladies at Falk's hall on Wednesday night gi was a most delightful and brilliant event P in the social triumphs of the season.'The ball was most beautifully decorated in the fairest flowers of Spring, and told eloquently that bands fairtr than them r selves, had designed and created the ver itable bower of roses, that delicately in tertwined with mosses and fringed with palms and evergreens, made a sceae of Si e charming loveliness like the poets vision of fairy-land. The rich full tones of the orchestra floated through flower-crowned e mingling its enchantment with their soft Si perfume, and the gay chatter of many young hearts, as they disported amid t.e I- utopian scenes. I- The grand march began at 9.80, led by Dr. Irion and Miss Bessie Cornay, and as I the couples fell in line till they encire!ed the entire hall. It showed that the young ladies had been fully rewarded for their labor. Theprogramme cons'sting ot 28 dances was gotinued far into the evening: and when the familiar notes of the "home sweet-home" warned the reveler that the joyful event had passed into memory, many a regret was felt that it had ended all too soon. The young ladies have most happily demonstrated their ability to conduct a dance beyond a peradventure. They deserve praise for their energy and palns-taking, and for the Pleasure - for which all who were present at Wed nesday nights reception are indebted to them, There were a number of visitors pres a-nt among whom were. Miss Emma Prere. of Franklin; Miss Virginia Beruie and brother, of Bayou Salle; Miss Peare Harmanson. of Opelossas: Dr. Voorhies and Mr. DeGenres, of New Iberig, apd Mr. Gooch. of Pattersonville.
