Father Larkin Given
$2,000 By Friends
Men and women from every walk
of life in Algiers gathered at the
Holy Name of Mary Church Saturday
night to bid farewell to the Very
Rev. Thomas J. Larkin. rector of
the church for the past eighteen
years. Father Larkin is to be trans
e* ferred to other fields.
ay In 1902 Father Larkin came to
ft Algiers from Salt Lake City, Utah,
succeeding Father Joyce. who died.
' Under the guidance of Father Lar
ad kin the school of the Holy Name of
: M1ary Church has been increased
a, from an attendance of 150 to 700.
The farewell program was an el.
4ft aborate one. It was originally
' planned to hold it on the wide lawn
of the church, but the threatening
e- skies caused It to be held in the
i' large hall across from the church.
Prominent men in religious and
es. business circles were there to bid
!ll farewell to the man who has done
it- so much good for the city. As
d. early as 7 p. m. the large hall was
is filled and many were standing.
Boy Scout Troop No. 60. In charge
of of Scoutmaster Hough, acted .
as guards of honor and ushers. A de
n !tall of scouts headed the little pro
d- cession as it mar-h- d into the hall.
td Next in line came Father Larkin,
to and with hint Mayor Behrman. who
for years has attended the church.
m As Father Larkin entered the hall.
r-.the band softly played: "Till We
~j Meet Again." There were many
eyes suspiciously moist, for it was
the parting of the ways, and 18,
" years is a long, long time.
Louis W. Peterson acted as chair
rman and master of ceremonies. An
interesting address was given by
. Miss Mamie Morrison. wh told in
detail of the life and work of Father
Larkin in Algiers. Quaint old Irish
melodies were played in a masterly
Smanner on the violin, by Miss Nellie
Ready. Other numbers included a
voal selection by Aubrey Gainnie.
and music by the Knights of Colum
bus band. Addresses were made tby
Is W. E. Burgis. president of the South
SNew Orleans Railway and Light Com
pany and by Most Rev. John W.
'Shaw, archbishop of New Orleans.
The principal address ,was given
s by Mayor Behrman. who presented
,r Father Larkin with a purse of over
$2,00.0 given by friends in grateful
r remembrance of his years of work.
s. Acknowledgment by Father Larkin
was simple and touched the hearts
a of his hearers. The crowded hall
was deathly quiet as he spoke, the
"-udien^a hanging on every word ut
. tered. In simple language he told,
t of his heartfelt regret at leaving
them, and said the memory of the
many friends here would always re
a main with him.

On Friday. August 20th, 1920, the
Algerines will give a dance at the
Avenue Theatre. The Jazasazzas Or

will furnish the music, and a large
crowd is expected to be present. The
committee are preparing to make this
a very joyous occaslon, and all who
can possibly do so, should attend.
Raiway Company
Motonizes Equipment
The long looked for chasis and
motor for the new motor-car service
of the New Orleans Lower Coast
Railway has arrived, and workmen
are now busily engaged in placing
the body of the car, which was con
structed here, upon the chasts, ready
for operation.
Mr. Hall of the company states
that they expect the new service to
be in operation within fifteen days.
The car, as presently constructed
will carry thirty-six passengers be
sides having a small portion for ex
press and baggage. It will be used
exclusively for passenger traffic and
will make stops only at four or five
stations on the road. The motor is
of sufficient capacity to carry sev
eral trailers. From experience in
the North and Eastern cities, where
gasoline is used instead of steam lo
comotives, the success has .been bo
pronounced that many of the roads

shop is located at 605 Blourbon St..

business of this character, and as
suring at all times the very highest
class of work and service. F'urni

artistic manner.
In this period when :t is the craze

Mr. Zeiher's work is his recommen

that he was for 11 yµ ars with Maison

it is high class work that you want

T IS but fitting that America-the
greatest nation in all the world
should have the finest capitol bunilding
on earth. The architectural beauty of
our national capitol building at Wash
ington is most impressive and, for capl
tol purpose, it is said to msurpass
every other building in the world.
The base of this immense, sym
metrically shaped and imposing edifice
rests on a level plateau, at an eleva
tion of 97 feet above the historic Po
tomac river. The building faces the
east and is about one mile distant
from the White House. The corner
stone of the original structure, which
comprises the central'portion of the
present building and Is of Virginia
sandstone, was laid by President Wash
ington on September 18, 1793-125
years ago. Later, when It became
necessary to enlarge the building, two
additions or wings, of Massachusetts
marble, were added. President FIll
more laid the corner stone; Daniel
Webster was the orator. These wings
were burned by the British in 1814. but
were restored. The original building
was completed In 1827.
The present structure Is 751 feet
long and 350 wide. It covers three
and one-half acres. The central por
tion is surmounted by one of the most;,
graceful, pleastingly shaped and mas
srve domes in the world. This dome is
287 feet high. It was completed in.
1865. It weighs more than 8,000,000!
pounds and is topped by a statue of
Preedom almost 20 feet high.
The tetal value of the building and i
grounds is estimated at 835,400,000.
