Lafayette soil is pretty well known for its great fertility and adaptability for all kinds of ve getation, and yet there are many who really do not realize thesoiland climate's possibilities. To such, a look at the enormous straw berries and dewberries which Dr. T. B. Hopkin's brought to this office Saturday, would be a convincing object lesson. Both the strawberries and dewberries, of which the Doctor has quite a large number of vines, are sweet and delightfully flavored. The raising of these two here so suc cessfully, shows what a vast field for profitable truck farming this parish offers; and with a com peting rail road, particularly the one to Baton Rouge which would connect with three great rail roads running north, east and west, here could be made the ideal garden spot of this country.

The Lafayette team played New Iberia Sunday on their home grounds, and the game was strictly professional up to the eighth inning. The playing was fine, could not be improved upon. Only one run was made and that by Lafayette. But when the eighth inning set in. things took a different complex ion, for Lafayette lost their grip somehow and began to drop errors which New Iberia picked up promptly and adroitly, piling up runs, so that when the game ended Lafayette walked off with one little run while New Iberia stepped high with seven. Lafa yette didn't feel soi bad, how ever. Everybody has "off" days. and next Sunday when Franklin comes up here to play, the "boys" calculate it will be their "on" day, and there will be some real lively doings. ED. BERTRAND.. Wmu. BARRAS.
