The fair for the benefit of the coF ored Catholic church, which was held at Glenn Oak Park Saturday and Sun day, was quite a success and realized a handsome sum. Father Placidus, who was the main orator of the fair, was greatly pleased with results, and was the main originator of the fair, so were all who worked for the fair. There was general evidence of vim and determination to carry the pro ject for a colored Catholic church to completion, and all seemed to be very well satisfied with the success of the fair and the enthusiasm displayed in the cause.

BALDWIN. The Cane Crop. Louisiana Planter. A rain, followed by cooler and clear weather, is the meteorological history of the past week in the sugar district. The rain was very welcome, as it put the land in good shape for plowing and fallplanting, and the cool weather was beneficial in as much as it had a tendency to ripen the cane. Grinding has started on several places already and next Monday will see quite a number beginning the cam paign. So far as heard from the cane is green, and weather that will have a tendency to ripen it and increase its suctose is what the plauters now want. Concern over the visible dam age done to the D. 74 cane by the hurricane is now giving place to con sideration of the more or less visible damage done to the crop in general by the slow ripening which the pros. tration of the cane has entailed. A fine lot of Mackerel now in stock. Roy & Mouton, phone 93. POLICE JURY HOLDS MEETING Foreman Grand Jury Makes Recom. mendations as to Juvenile Pris oners and Road Corner Hedges.

The League selected Mrs. A. B. Denbo as delegate and Mrs. Joe Mou ton as alternate. Aftera gooddeal of business was transacted, the subject of accepting Dr. Moss' .ktn& offer of Music hall as the place of holding the monthly meetings was discussed, and the members decided to accept the offer as the attendance of the League has gotten so large that the homes of the members are not quite large enough, Music Hall being centrally located and a most desirable place.
