organization under three divisions,
to wit: a Division of Better Farm

Drainage, Transportation and High

Immigration and Industry.
Why a Division of Better Farm

four generations Louisiana farmers
have practiced the single crop sys

ville Satur;lal' morning for fowdl anl a
brief rest. and st:artedl out again on their
sad search. Practically every man in
Nal-ieonvllilt engagedl in the search. A
cole signal was arranged and the search
was a most systematic one.
The buggy in which the mother and
son rale was found late Saturday, andl
the horse was discovereal carefully tied
to a tree. This wis the- first clue, a:dI
the grounds around where the horse anlld
buggy were found for miles aroulnd were
carefully gone over, but late Saturd.ly
night the searching parties came back
with no n.e-w of the missing plair.
On Sunday morning, Paul Guillot, an
emplloyee of the cypress mill, who was
passing over a bridge that spanned a
smiall stream on the rocnst G-ove i'lan
tation, discovered a pnrtion of a wmlin's
dress tartlv concealed by the bridge. lie
stlunmoneod, help and the mother antl
child were discovered under the bridge.
The inquest developed the fact that
neither nlotlher nor child had met with
foul play, nor was there any evidence of
their having been drowned. It isbeliev
ed that fright and exposure were tile
cause of their deaths. Mr. Carriere is
nearly pl 'mtrated at the death of his wife
and child. lie, with four children, sur
Mrs. Carriere was, lwfore her marriage
a Miss Myrtlua Foret, and a maember of
one of the representative families of
louisiana. She is a sister of the Rev.
C. A. Foret, the rector of the Church of
Our IAdy of Prompt Succor at lancker.
Ia. One other brother, Mr. Ferdinand
Foret, is an attache of the Charity Hlos
pital of New Orleans.
The funeral ceremonies for motherane
child were held in the Church of the
Assumption at l'latt, nville. The church
was filled with sorrowing friends andl
relatives, who came from far and near.
The' heay mourning draperies were
Most elaborate, an,; the ceremonies were
singularly impressive. The pastor, Rev.
Father J. A. Fratcon, departed from his
usual custom of not speaking at burial
services, and preached a touching fu
neral sermon, filled with consuolation for
the grief-stricken relatives. Motherand
son w-.re laid together in the family
tomb. with the pious pravers of the en
tire community ascending heavenward
for the repose of their souls.
To Rev. Father Foret, the stricken
family and relatives of the much-loved
lady and her little son, The M qning
Star extends its deepest sympathv in tile
sorrow that has come to them in this
mysterious and deeply deplored tragedy.
