This is a long vista of years for one
to look over, and residing in our town,
the mother of the Daniels' boys re- q
members when she first came to Al- E
giers, and where she has constantly I
resided since, and for over fifty years t
at her present home with her venera
ble husband, Francis A. Daniels, at
Number 241 Olivier street. t
Both of the old people enjoy good
physical health and are spending their
declining years in peace and happi
ness, surrounded by their children,
grandchildren and great grandchildren,
and looking forward with assurance
and hope and ready to depart to a
heavenly home.
Mrs. Daniels, who was Miss Mary
Leddy, was born near the city of En
iris. County Clare, Ireland, October 7,
1838. Her father dying, her mother
determined to come to the New World,
which promised much; and with ,hert
two daughters, Bridget and Mary (the
latter the subject of this sketch), and
one son, Lot. embarked at Liverpool,
England, in the good ship "Huron,"
Captain Lawrie, in October 1849, with
a number of passengers and a cargo of
salt. After an uneventful voyage, ex
cept for its length, this vessel landed
at Algiers at the old salt warehouses
(now the head of Atlantic and Pacific
avenues) Jan. 8, 1850, at which place
the passengers were also landed. Al
giers was only a village then, with a
population of possibly 1,000 people.
Mrs. Daniels remembers the story-and
a-half house on Alix street, between
Belleville and Elmira. which became
their first home. This old building re
mained until it was torn down only a
few years ago.
Great changes have taken place, and
the village has become a city with
18,000 people. The rural beauty and
green open fields bave given way to
cozy 'homes, and the things that -were
old have been replaced wit i that which
is new. In these sixty years genera
tions have passed away and families
and names then prominent are almost
now forgotten. Wars, epidemics, busi
ness and industrial depressions, leav
ing in their wake misfortune, poverty,
sorrow and suffering, have all been
witnessed and exprelenced by one who
has lived so many years in one com
munity and memory is crowded with
these events.
Mrs. Daniels was married in 1857,
and with her husband celebrated their
golden anniversary Dec. 3, 1907, which
event is remembered by many of our
The male members of Mt. Olivet
Episcopal Church are busy arranging
a big masquerade party which they
will give to their friends on the night
of Friday, Feb. 17, at Pythian Hall. It
has been the custom of the members
of Mt. Olivet Church to give an annu
al masquerade party in February, but
it has usually fallen to the lot of the
ladies to look after the details. This
year, however, the men have taken it
on their hands and they are going to
show the ladies they are better man

ty. Tickets are now being printed for
the affair and no doubt there will be
a big crowd of jolly maskers, made
up of the best people in town, who
will enjoy themselves on that night.

quietly celebrated in Biloxi, Miss. The

Friday morning and have taken up
their residence in Opelousas aveune,
between Brooklyn and Teche streets. tl
At 7:30 o'clock Friday evening the
members of the Ivy Leaf Social Club,
who had determined to observe the n

the home and amid the beating of

other nerve-racking noise-makers they s

several shrill shrieks were given. Cap

One of the most striking and effective styles of the season.
The fabric is a fine woolen texture, treated like "rain
cloth." The upper is trimmed with wide braid with tip
to match. Made on a new last, designed to show to best
advantage the beautiful curves of the foot. Heel nearly
t -o inches high.
No one would question the value
of this shoe if priced at $6.

On Saturday night, while O. Dorsey's
delivery wagon was delivering some
clothes, a suit and a vest were stolen
from the wagon. The wagon was In
charge of Johnnle Davis, who was as
sisted by Gaston Del'Isle. The theft
occured on the corner of Bouny and
Alix streets. It seems that while the
colored driver, Davis, was delivering
a suit in one of the residences in that
vicinity, a crowd of boys engaged in
a conversation with young Del'Isle to
detract his attention from the rear of
the wagon, and it was during this time
that the theft was made. The suit
of clothes, which was valued at $20,
belonged to Philip Hahn, while the
vest, valued at $6, belonged to George
Hahn. As soon as Dorsey found
that the goods were stolen he at
once paid the $26 to the owners of the
clothes. The police were notified but
as yet no clue has been found to iden
tify the miscreant.

The Kimball Player Piano
Artistic excellence and durability in the
Kimball Piano have been the aim in
manufacturing this world-renowned In
strument. The Kimball 88-Note Player
mechanism adds the one feature which
make. the Instrument a complete unit
and available for every member of the
family. This player mechanism has been
developed to give the utmost facility of
interpretation of the music with ease of
operation anid simplicity of construction.
This simplicity of construction Insures
durability a quality not to be dislensed
with. With the Kimlball P'layer-l'lano
the performer may express his own In
terpretatuion of the music played, thus
giving an individuality to the perform
ance and removing It from so-called auto
matic muthl. The tempo lever gives ab
solute control of the time. The pedals,
sensitive aInd responsive to a marvelous
extent, not only supply the motive pow
er, but 1by slight movement, or pause,
produce the I~uder and softer eff-,-tl so
essential to the adelluate expression of
music, ndll varied at the will of the
