A gen Lets, eral discussion regarding the public roads of the parish ensued. All the as- jurors reported the roads of their re two spective wards in very good condi to- tion, and in view of the fact that the pea- road taxes for 1909 are now collecta co- ble, ample funds would be available pice to keep them in good shape.

The report is hereby approved; Lafayette, La., April 1, 1909. To the Police Jury of Lafayette Par. isb. Gentlemen: At the request of Mr. Edmond Martin, police juror from the third ward, I have made a survey of the topography of the land bordering along the public road on P. L. De Clouet's place on the line between the parishes of Lafayette and St. Martin, in order to establish a proper grade for the drainage of the public road at I above-mentioned place. From the public road across the DeClouet place to Coulee Christoff there was a fall of one-half inch to the acre, which was entirely inade quate for the carrying of water. From the end of the road following the road I found a fall of one foot and eight inches, which gave a fall of about two inches for an acre in length. I respectfully suggest that the best way to get rid of the surplus water would be by making a ditch along the road to the coulee and also a ditch in that slough between the end of the road and Coulee Christoff. ROUSSEAU J. MOUTON, Parish Surveyor. Mr. Lacy explained that the con trovesy between the first and third wards over a certain drain along the property originally owned by the late Mr. Louis Mouton, had not as yet been settled.

Sheriff Lacoste being present stated that he would put forward every effort to collect the delinquent 1908 taxes. Mr. Spell asked that the parish appropriate out of the general fund >25.00 to pay for a part of a strip of land to widen the road from Indian Bayou bridge to Queue Tortue Bayou bridge in the 2nd ward, whereupon it was resolved that the said amount be paid out of the second ward.
