This firm, known to all the residents '

"Old Constance" dies at 94.
Constance Bossier, an old colored wo
man residing at Edgard. died Saturday
at the ripe old age of 94 years.
Constance was a slave owned by the
Barra family, but was permitted to pur
chase her freedom, which she did with
her own money long before the act of
emancipation was signed.
She subsequently married Etienne
Sentilles, a french-man, who died in 1871.
Constance is survived by a daughter.
Mrs. ILocadie Fourcade. She was a pro
perty owner, and was loved and respected
by the entire community. She had part
ly raised a white orphan girl, who is now
Mrs. Joseph R. Hymel, of New Orleans.
Mrs. Hymel's gratitude never waned
and she visited the old woman frequent
ly, being at her bed-side a few days
before her death.
Whenever sickness invaded the home
of Mrs. Jules Joseph, the first one who
was called upon was Constance, or rath
er "Mbmbre" as she was affectionately
called by the family.
She it was who crooned over the cra
dles of the worthy men of yesterday,
who dandled on her kuees those of the
younger generation and who decked for
their nuptials fair brides of the "old re

on Sunday, August 7th, at 8 P.

Tennis in St. John.
The game known as Lawn Ten
nis is daily gaining popularity in
the parish of St. John as is evi
denced by the fact that tennis
clubs have already been organiz
ed in different parts of theparish.
The club at La Place was about
the first to organize, and thanks
to the keen interest of its twenty
members, the club can boast of a
very nice court situated on the
property of Mr. T. Montz, with
pecessary attachments painted
in the club's colors, red and
white. Interesting match games
with outside clubs are scheduled
to take place in the near future
on the La Place court, where the
public will be able to sit in the
shade and view the games at
ease. Reserve and Garyville will
soon vie with La Place for the
championship of the parish, as
both placescan boast of excellent
players. It is rumored that the
Convent Tennis Club will be the
first to cross rackets with La
Place on the latter's court.

they save wear and tear and worry and

it in touch with the city; they aid the

They realize that often the difference
between good roads and bad roads is the
difference between profit and loss.
Good roads mean prosperous farmers;
bad roads mean abandoned farms, sparse

The truth of the declaration of Charles

greatest forces for the advancement of
civilization are the schoolmaster and good
roads," is emphasized by the experience
of the intervening years."

Tact and Talent
The following extract from a noted
writer, (name unknown to correspon
dent) is of such intrinsic value, that I
am most confident that it would be wel
comed by all thonghtful men and women
of this great commonwealth, had they
the opportunity of reading same.
His wise and truthful sayings are with
out the least doubt the "sounding note'
on which true success rests.
Talent is something, but tact is every
thing. Talent is serious, sober, grave
and respectable; tact is all that and more J
too. It is the open eye, the quick ear, the
judging taste. the keen smell, and the live
ly touch; it is the interpreter of all rid
dies, the surmounter of all difficulties,
the remover of all obstacles. It is useful
in all places, and at all times: it is use
ful in solitude, for it shows a man into
Talent is power, tact is skill: talent is
weight, tact it momentum; talent knows
what to do, tact knows how to do it;
talent makes a man respectable, tact
will makehim respected; talent is wealth.
tact is ready money. For all the practi.
cal purposes, "tact" carries it against
"talent" ten to one.
Take them to the theater, and put them
against each other on the stage, and tal
ent shall produce you a tragedy that
shall scarcely live long enough to be
condemned, while tact keeps the house
in a roar, night after night, with its suc
Take them to the bar, and let them
shake their learned curls at each other
in legal rivalry; talent sees its way clear
ly, but tact is first at its journey's end,
talent has many a compliment from the
bench, but tact touches fees. Talent
makes the world wonder that it gets on
no faster, tact arouses astonishment that
it gets on so fast. And the secret is, that
it has no weight to carry; it makes no
false steps; it hits the right nail on the
Take them into the church: talent has
always something worth hearing, tact is
s is of abundance of Itearers; talent may
obtain a living. tact will make one; talent
gets a good name, tact a great one; talent
convinces, tact converts; talent is an
honor to the profession, tact gains honor
from the profession.
Take them to court: talent feels its
weight, tact finds its way; talent com
mands, tact is obeyed; talent is honored
with approbation, and tact is blessed by
Place them in the senate: talent has
the ear of the house, but tact wins its
heart, and has its votes; talent is fit for
employment, but tact is fitted for it.
It has a knack of slipping into place
with a sweet silence and glibness of move
ment as a billiard ball insinuates itself
into the pocket.
Lastly, let us take them in our educa
tional institutions, and find out why some
of the schoolmasters and professors of
our days are not more succoesful in their
respective line. Are they well versed in
the "Theory and Art of Teaching?t In
other words are they provided with that
necessary knowledge known as "talent?'
In the majority of cases they are. (Of
course there are exceptions to every rule.)
Then why have they made of teaching
such a stumbling block? Why have they
beenso "unsucceseful in trying to incul
cate knowledge to some of our youths?
1 am not posing as one of "authority'
on the subject, but I am more than con
vinced, that they have, in their mad rush
of trying to inculcate knowledge, left
out, or neglected that most essential fac
tor known as tact.'
For my part, I am positive that this
"world' of ours would wear more of a
smiling face to the majority of us, it we
but knew how to cultivate and feed that
little woard aset.'
"Suppose the world doesn't please you,
Nor the way some people do.
Do you think the whole creation.
SWill be altered just for you'?
Let ua then try, dear readers, what
ever may be our chosen profession keep
"Talet" snd Tact side by aide, and I
am most sure that instead of fnaing the
word "uansucassfl staring at us, the
beantiful door of "succees hall be open
ed in due timu.
