Dr. Stephens also announced that Julian Kahn and Miss Sarah Buchan an were also entitled to diplomas having completed the course in mid session. Dr. Stephens called Senator Dy mond's special attention to the fact that the people of Lafayette had not only founded the institution by their liberality and enterprise, but had continued assistance in maintaining the school by giving it moral and fi nancial support. Every year the local community contributed to the support of the sum mer normal, which was really a part of the institute, and this year the Po lice Jury had given $500, the Town Council $1,000 and the school board $1,200, while the state contributed $2,000. It was the duty of the state and not the community to maintain the summer normal,, just al is done in the case of the Natchitoches school, and Dr. Stephens impressed the fact as one worthy of considera tion by the Legislature. He wished to see every institution treated liber ally, but also desired to stress the institute's claim for recognition of the work being done in this section of the state. In conclusion, Dr. Ste phens paid tribute to the graduates, bidding all good-by, with the injunc tion to keep ever in memory this thdtir alma mater. Then thanking the audience for their presence he declared that the eleventh session of the Industrial Institute was ended. Model School Pupils.

We have received the following ap peal for the flood sufferers in Pointe Coupee parish. The letter speaks for itself. The Advertiser will gladly ac cept and forward any contributions: New Roads, La., May 27, 1912. Editor Advertiser: I want to ask you to use your col umns in an effort to raise funds for the flood sufferers of the parish of Pointe Coupee. I could exhaust language in tryin[g to picture conditions here, and yet the story would be half told. Huw dreds of appeals are made to us every day, and we have been eloth tg- feedag, giving medical attention and medicine right and left, and for all this we have been dependent upon the N. O. Flood Relief Committee, but they cannot be expected to do at all for the reason that the demands kpon them are great sad they are try. Ing to do for ad many as possible. Hence we find ourselves sadly handi capped. See what you can do for our poor sufferers. I have been through the thickest of it, and for days and nights did not close my eyes, taking people out of trees, off of roots, etc., and bringing them to places of safety. Many of them had not had any food for four and five days, and we feed them by t the hundreds. i know that your peo ple are of the same blood as ours, and their hearts are big. and though their contributions be small, they come from brave and big hearts. Thanking you for what you may do for us, Yours truly, CONRAD J. LrCOCQ. Chairman Point Coupee Flood Relieof Committee, Mrs. B. Riteetein, of Lake Charles, c is visiting Mrs. U. S. Degas.

Columbus a Historical PhetePlay The most elaborate historical photo. play yet attempted is a threereel subject, "The Coming of Columbus," made by the Selig Polysoope Co. It presents the life of Columbus and In. cidents leading up to and following his great achievement of the disoo. ery of America. This great moving picture masterpiece was three years in the making, and cost 6$0,000. There are 350 people in the cast, and the three caravels, which had been built in exact reproduction of the vessels used by Columbus and prow sented to the United States Govern. ment by the Spanish nation, were so cured for this great production by Mr. William N. Selig, who refitted the ships and made them seaworthy. In order that the production might be as perfect a duplicate as possible of the original achievement, Mr. 8elig had even secured the very log-book used by Columbus. This great fea ture, which is the sensation of the en tire motion picture loving world, has been secured at great expense, for a very limited engagement, by the Jef ferson Theatre, and will'be exhibited for the first time in this house on Saturday June 8.
