LEBLANC STATION NOTES, Editor Meridinal: Since the last dots has been sent in there has been a great event in this section. We .had a great wedding though the day was harsh and raw; the entire feathered tribe had their annual wedding on St Valentines day and since, their merry notes and blithesome movemen's proclaims the joyous advance of spring. Misses Hadnot and Young coin mem orated Washingtons birthday by a visit of a few friends and trustees of thus respective schools and while they all had on their bestblabs and tucks, smiles, etc., the photographer struck the groups and the children are very proud of seeing themselves as others see them. We note in the Idea of March 2nd, the Republican slur toward our Dem ocratic Governor. We are very proud totlisar that "'Gov. Newt's" (as the~Idea calls him,) "peacock feathers left by ex press", while the Gov. and his staff, including our friends Capt.'Stafford, Alexander, R. P. LeBlane and many other prominent and °brainy men of the different Bections A the state traveled as first class passengers on a special and when they arrived at Washington Governor. Blanchard strutted to the honor of the entire State of Louisiana. and credibly to the American type of citizenship and added glory prestige to, the position be occupies and quite satisfies the pride of the most demanding and eritdea be they of National or State fame or the cgdinary kicker. -How ever that peacock -feather talk may be we are sure of one thing. The truths bt the past can not be'contra dicted and we can truly say that no man of the democratic patty has ever before'graced the Gubernation al seat of this our beloved Louisiana with more ease and .dignitythan Newton C. Blanchard and we are further more sure of the rabble and disgrace, disorder andcorruption the state was submerged in inthe Repub lcan administration of Kellogg and other niggardly Repnubhlican gover nors.'

The oil well which is being put down on the Ramsey Island tract, in Prairie Gregg has reached a depth of 1740 feet, and the indications for o ''the way down were of the most sanguine character. Scot tClay, the driller in charge of the well, who has been operating in the Jennings field for the last three years, states that the different geological strata enco unt ered are practically the,same as in the Jenning field at the snme'dep th. He figures that if oil is found it will probably be struck at a depth of about 1.600 feet., There is a small degree more of gumlbo or hard clay to be drilled through here than at the Jennings field, and while some evi dences of gas have been encountered, it was not of great pressure, since the presence of the gumbo mud would in a large, measure prevent the gas from percolatibg through to the sur face. The surfa^,e indications are al so considered promising by oilmen who have visited the place, and all information given out by the drillers thus far has been cf a nature to raise the highest hopes concerning the pos sibility of an oil field in Vermilion parish. Ever3thing has been run ning smoothly at the well since It was started and a depth of 1,600 to 1,800 feet should be sufficient to bring in the well and every one hopes that it will be a gusher.
