CAUGHT BIG PERCH.
Ed Munsterman, one of our local
boys, who is known as an expert perch
fisherman, made his record catch last
week in so far as landing the largest
sized perch ever seen here. The perch,
which was exhibited to The Herald,
measured 12 inches in length, 41-2
inches wide, and weighed 15 ounces,
dressed. This is not a fish story, as
young Munsterman exhibited the perch
to many of his friends.
There has been considerable sport
at the Outfall Drainage Canal this
spring, where many records of fifty,
sixty and seventy dozen perch have
been caught by parties in a single day.

Representative-elect Howard Kop

negro, armed with an ax, entering
through a kitchen window, which he
had broken with a jimmy made from
The negro had raised the window
sash a few inches preparatory to en
tering, had removed his shoes, and
with the ax grasped firmly in his hand,
was stealthily preparing to enter when
the -unexpected arrival of Mr. Koppel
frightened him. The negro made his
escape in a sawmill on the river front.
"I was just entering a door opening
on a side gallery," said Mr. Koppel,
"when a huge black form disengaged
itself from a high hedge against the
partition fence across the lawn from
the gallery and started in lively fash
ion for the back part of the yard. I
thought it was a large dog at first, but
as the man ran he straightened up and
I saw he carried an ax in his hand. I
shouted at him and dashed upstairs to
my room to get my revolver. The man
in his haste ran into some supports
for a vine and must have been knocked
down, losing his hat and ax.
"I turned on a light on the lawn
from an upstairs switch and fired one
shot at his fleeing figure.
"Citizens and police officers saw him
running several times and we followed
him until he lost us in the Ward saw

Mrs. Frederick Weigman at No. 918

he fired three ineffectual shots at the
intruder, who made his escape over a
fence. No one was at home at the

re cut about the face. The people in
n- the vicinity of the viaduct rendered
re all assistance possible to utle lads, con.
le- veying Euper home, yogng Vinson be
I, ing able to walk home.
The bike is a total wreck.

Almost everybody was interested in
what kind of a day Easter Sunday
would be. Especially the ladies, who
had been looking forward for weeks
to the wearing of that Easter hat and
Easter dress to church. We might say
the little ones as well looked forward
to a bright, sunny Easter.
Now, let us see what our Weather
Bureau told us. In picking up the
Times-Democrat Sunday morning we
find in the Gist of the News the fol
lowing sentence, "A sunny Easter Sun
day was predicted for New Orleans,
page 1-part 3." On the upper right
hand corner of the same paper and
page we find the following weather
forecast: Rain Sunday, cooler in inte
rior. Monday unsettled. The weather
report in some of our other daily pa
pers on Sunday were also along the
lines that it would be clear and cloudy,
that there would be sunshine and rain.
On page 1, part 3, of the Times-Demo
crat of the same date we have this
news: "The Weather Bureau goes out
of its way to fix Easter here. Clear
skies will smile upon New Orleans."
Of course, we do not condemn any
n of our papers, as they are not respon
y sible for these predictions, but we do
o criticise our Weather Bureau, not be
s cause they have missed it on Easter
d Sunday. but because it is so often the
y case it is getting so that few people
d pay much attention to the predictions
of the forecasters.
