On last I-riday night the honie of the Alhatnbra Gymnastic (Club was all be decked ornate and ga'" with sixty-eirht halpy young coulples, together with the memlbers of the .\lliarnbra and the ladies auxiliary, waho he.lped to make menmorable the dedica:tion of the big s\ itninilg tank which was ce:npltled a few- day before. The affair was a bi -ocial tsucc'-s and tile In;inl) %oill ladies in their lb aiutiful , o -tiine- prc .-cinte-d a prtetti si. ht a;t tlhey danl e.d to the, . of L.ainme'- ilnd on l fle' loor of t he cs;,; c rniilllll i . w hih1 a\it laid that ,!aJ tor the isurlier . tetur : t!e e" icli refr,shin-e ts were serte'f and tihe jolly 1.%il enj.,e.d for the first tiut' the hoslitalit\ of t olth the \lhacni.ra and the ladci -' au\- i t iliarm. The big g- allnasiumllli, which.l I1tas lures thirty biy fort feet,. will be finally e . ou t plted by Saturday e-i li ng. The I lower floor of the buildinc, .i ihich cov rer. the natatoriumlll. was conmpleted yes terday and the tank was filled for the first time last night. The first ladies h day will begin this a'ternoon cwhen the tank and tlre gymnasium will be given I oier to them for recreation. The la dies' auxiliary, whose membership now numbers o er one hundred, have pur chased a beautiful inner-player which I will be used during the ladies' days at the club fop rhe purpose of furnishing d I dance music. There will be special apparatus fur nished also for the ladies, consisting º of the latest and most up-to-date para phernalia. It has also been decided by the la I ies' auxiliary to have some social function at the club each month and during the winter months we under stand that they will be more frequent. The many experts who have exam ined the tank since its completion have pronounced it a perfect piece of work and that its construction compares a with the best In town. The work on i the tank was done by Messrs. Pollock -pad Killeen and the committee who had the- work in charge were Wm. tH. Ward It and Charles Cleutat. who devoted a considerable amount of their time and attention to the many details that were necessary. Much valuable as- ti slstance was given the committee and the contractors by Richard Maher, who spent many of his hours at night on S the works; Mr. Maher having formerly been in this business, his services and advice have been greatly appreciated by all the members of the club. be New pavement has been laid in front of the club as well as in the side en trance to the natatorium. This con struction work required a considerable amount of material, some of which might be mentioned as follows: more than a carload of gravel, more than a carload of sand and a carload of the best grade cement. The floors and side walls of the tank are re-inforced with twisted steel bars the same that are used in the construe- at tion of the big sky-scrapers. The di lplumbing work was put in by Messrs. Kepper and Reaney, who have taken a great deal of pride in the work and in the fact that it will be on display before many of our Algiers people. Jules Bodenger also materially assist ed in supplying the metal for the gym nasium and also helped in advising the committee in.,making the big struc ture a success.C Algiers should be congratulated on being able to offer the public an insti tution of this kind and from the num ber of applicants on hand now 'before both the Alhambra and the ladies' aux iliary, the membership will increase a two-fold within the next few weeks. hospital Mrs. North did all she could to alleviate his suffering. At 3:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, during the electrical storm the home of B August Lecourt, near the Naval Sta- E tion, was struck by lightning.

The members presenit at the meet ing were the captains selected for the different squares in this district and it will be their duty to call on eaci and every one in their block and to explain to the residents the need of the big clean-up day which is soon to come and to give suclh instructions as might lie asked of them. For the informa tion of the public, it is the purpose of the United States Health Service to make known that the volunteer com mittee have absolutely no authority to order improvements of any kind, but it is their mission to suggest improve ments, to encourage the clearing up and to disseminate the knowledge that is so necessary in the eradication of this pest. Later on each one of the captains will be furnished with a circu lar which will contain general direc tions for each householder and will put them in possession of such general in formation as will be of service to them. After the volunteer committee has made its rounds, the official U'nited States inspector will go over the grounds and will order such improve ments as are necessary. Some of the ordinances which have been passed by the Council Commis sion are severe and will work a hard ship on poor people. The ordinance re garding the keeping and raising of chickens has not been finally passed, but we understand that some modifica tions will be made which will be fa vorable to that part of our district not on the other side of Opelousas avenue The spirit of the meeting Monday night was of the nature that showed that all were interested in the work and were eager to go ahead. Later on different meetings will be held at the club rooms of the Alhambra Gymnasic Club, which organization will give the use of its club rooms as the headquar ters for the Volunteer Committee.

STREET VICTROLA HEADOUARTERS BADLY BEATEN UP. Joseph Tallon, one of our prominent citizens here, was badly beaten up on Monday night by Victor Escousse, Jr. Mr. Tallon is confined to his bed and is suffering a great deal from the rough handling which he received. Mr. Tal Ion gave the following statement to The Hlerald: About 11 o'clock .Monday night he was waiting on his trade, principally the workingmen who were eating their lunch; about that time Mr. Escousse entered his place and asked for a sandwich, which was given him. Mr. Tallon directed his atten tions to the working men who were in a hurry for their sandwiches, and be cause Mr. Tallon did not wait on Mr. Escousse immediately he went behind the bar and choked MIr. Tallon. ie also threw the cash register from the back ba" to the floor and then so se verely wrenched Mr. Tallon's arm that he was unable to raise it. An affidavit was made in the Second City Court against Escouese for assault and bat etry. In our local court a charge of malicious mischief will be entered against him. It is stated that Escousse also got into trouble some time 'ago with John Sprada, who also conducts a saloon in that vicinity. STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.

No one was hurt. the damage will amount to about one hun dred dollars, and the fire which was started from this lightning, was put out without much trouble. WHAT EV[EION[ SHOULD KNOW OPTO.METIRY, as now defined by statutory law in ow\r thirty states, is "The 1emplo ment of any means, other than the use of drugs, for the measure ment of the powers of vision and the adaptation of lenses for the aid there of." .\N OPTOMETRIST is a practitioner of Optometry, and is, literally, an eye measurer. but he is also skilled in Mlechanical Optics, which enables him to super ise the construction of right glasses when needed. In his examina tion of defc.tive or strained eyes, he flrst takes note of any unhealthy con dition, in order that he may recom mend treatment outside of his own specialty, should the person, for any reason, seem to require such attention. lie then satisfies himself as to the fo cal state (,eeing quality), using the skiasc'ope and other modern instru ments and methods. The Optometrist next prostes his findings with the usual test lenses and vision charts and, final ly, measures the strength of the mu· cles that rotate the eyeballs.
