Saturday morning successfully laid
a new cable between the foot of
Canal street and the ferry landing
in Algiers. This cable replaces the
one broken last September.
The huge drum holding the cable
was rolled into position on a scow
and bolted to the deck. One end of
the cable was connected with the
main conduit, and securely shackled
to the dock and piling to avert an

start. Finally she cast off from the
dock and jockeyed for a straight
course across the river.
A fire-hose was placed in readi

the cable when it is rapidly unwound
from the drum is extremely heavy,
causing flames and sparks to, flash
in all directions.
Suddenly with a warning whistle

ments have to be made in the Hall
and the ladies of this organization
have realized this and have made up
their minds to raise the money nec- i
essary to make the H. N. G. C. what
it should be, one of the coziest
amusement houses in tlhcity. Im
provements have been made already
that will surprise the patrons. The
benefit will consist of two nights.
Prfday and Saturday. at the H. N.
G. B. Bessie Love will be the star

first three episodes of the thrilling
serial, "The Invisible Hand", will
be shown Friday, Saturday and Sun
With kind co-operation of the peo
ple, this benefit will definitely put

It may be said that few New Or
leans industries have maintained
during the flow of passing years a
higher standard than has the monu
ment works of F. G. Blrchmeier,
3400 Dublin street, corner Olive.
This tim'e-tried industry was estab
lished in 1862, and since that time
the general work turned out has
embraced in its scope all that is ar
tistic and enduring in high grade
monumental work. The early repu
tation earned by the firm has ever
been Ilved up to, both as regards
the modern creations of the monu
nuent maker's art, and square deal
ing in ebery business transaction.
This monumental works is not only a
manufacturer, but an importer, of
high grade monumental work, in
eluding granite of 'Sweden, and these
are supplemented by the finest pro
ducts of our American quarries. Mr.
Birehmeier carries a large line of
finished monuments. The plant is
eemplete in all essentials and is fit
ted up with all the necessary ap
plianees for turning out the most
artistic work. All carving, tracing
and lettering is done with pneu
matle tools, while skilled workmen
are kept busy constantly finishing
the work in hand. The facilities
are of the best, as they are in direct
communleation with the leading
soureas of supply, all stone being
shipped to him from the various
quarries, thus eliminating the mid
dleamn's profit and giving his pat
reons the benefit thereof on all work
executed by him. As a designer he

The Herald notes ,and( adknow
ledges with mingled pride and nat
ural apprehension, the advent of an
other newsy journal on this side of
the river. During the last week,
there has been placed in our hands
the second edition of the "Blue and
Gold", the interesting recorder of
the doings of McDonogh No. 4 School.
As far as we know the "Blue and
Gold" Is the first school paper to be
edited by and for pupils of any
grammar school of New Orleans. It
is the natural outcome of the active
and progressive spirit of this al
ready prominent school.
The "Blue and Gold" itself con
sists of a rather thick little booklet,
encased in an appropriately sketched
cover, indeed rivalling some of our
high school journals. The paper
proper contains every item of school
gossip, the doings of all the classes,
the civic leagues, editorials by the
beys, some of their best stories and
real jokes and good natural personal
jibes about their friends. The head
ings are especially clever and the
number of advertisers they have al
ready gotten bids fair for their fu
ture hustling abilities.
The "Blue and Gold" is edited
monthly by the boys of McDonogh
School. Subscription is 45 cents
for a school session and ten cents
a single copy. The present staff
consists of Stanley Baker. editor-in
chief, Nolan LeBlanc, associate edi
tor. Leslie McMahon and George
Bengert, managing editors; Malcolm
Schwarsenbach, literary editor, Al
fred Peterson, news editor, Horace
Harris, personals, Peter Anderson,
editor of Jokes and Emile Mothe,
staff artist. *All boys are to be
congratulated for their splendid
chool spirit.
