' Mrs. J. 0. Mouton, has not only a store t full of pretty and fashionable millinery s g iods, but, adjoining the store is as tasty a flower garden as one would wish to see.

The Gazette is informed that the ball givenin Lake Charles in honor of the Py- ( thcans, now in annual session in that town, 1 last Monday, was not only a social success, 0 but the event of the season. g Our bright young townsman, Mr. O. H. Simpson, as veledictorian of the Tulane t Law School graduating class, last Monday, acquitted himself in a very creditable man- n ncr. His effort was logical and covered r subjects that appeal to the most thoughtful C consideration. u A special train pulled in Lafayette Sun- s day, having on board Superintendent Mul- t1 vey, the road master, and nll section fore men of the Louisiana Western railroad, who werqdn their annual tour of inspection of i tihe tracks of the company. The eloquent divine, Bishop Sessums, <f the Protestant Episcopal Church, will ad- P minister the holy rites of confirmation, and, i: also, hold services, on Thursday, June I, at is a. m., in the Presbyterian church. t, ti Of the indigenous fruits of Lafayette ti parish are the scuppernong and purj le ti grapes, mulberries, dewberries, blackber ries, and a few others; but it seems the peo- a ple have yet failed to turn these to profitable account. Dr. G. Salles left for Houston, Tea., Mon- ra day, with a view, we understand, of locating to pictice his profession. Should the doc- 11 tor decide to stay over there, it will be to e our loss and to that town's gain, and we hope as he will meet with much prosperity. I The children of the convent went pick- a nicking last Thursday, chaperoned by the a Sisters. Some fifteen wagons were ceowded with young humanity, and it took n one wagon to carry the eatables.

Falk, who always has an eye opened for the comfort of the patrons of his o Opera House, has ordered some new chairs, , and with other improvements that he has in , mind, will made this place one of the most comfortable and attractive in the country. I The hand of affliction was, again, laid e heavily on Mr. and Mrs. Lacoste. Within - a week they had the misfortune to lose their r baby twins. The Gazette in tendering to F the sadly bereaved family its heartfelt sym pathy can only add that if God plucked tile bright blossonms from your home it is for the purpose of placing them near his throne, and you have the eonsolation of knowing that angel eyes now look upon you. t When you want any fire insurance written see Ordway & Richard. An interesting feature of Mrs. Bailey's school-being litxt door neighbor we have ample opportunity to observe-is the ap parent gaiety of the children on tire play ground, during recess-they are merry, but not boisterous, and seem to be so friend ly in their playing. And we want to add a well deserved tribute, which is, that this is a splendid institution, and has earned the confidence of all from the fact of being so well managed. Few blore. Probably the only growing camphor tree in the state except the one in Horticultural Hall at Audubon Park, New Orleans, is to be found on Father Forge's premises in this town.-Lafayette Gazette. Our cotemporary is mistaken about Lafa yette having the only camphor tree outside of New Orleans. Only a few years ago there were several being large, fine trees at Convent, St. James parish, and DI)r. L. J. Edwards of this place has a couple of heal thy young camphor trees growing in his garden.-Abbeville Meridional. We are infornmed that Mr. Pierre Gerac has a very large camphor tree at his honle In this town. An Enjoyable Cruise. A party of jovial spirits composed of Messrs. P. B. Roy Aurellien Prilllenux, Du pre Huhis, C. Debaillon, and Nelson Hig ginbotham, (known far and wide as the "rising sun of the West,") with Valsin BIe noit as chief cook, and Bibi Landry as but ler, boarded the sloop "'La Corse" manned by Peigneur LeBlane as chief sailing mas ter. Of course, the efficient butler had seen to it that the larder was well filled, in cluding some spirits in case, only, t!lat any of the party should happen to run against a stingaree. The start was made made from Bayou Tigre, thence sailing throughout the Ver million Bay to Southwest Pass, skirting the coast to Cheniere la Croix on the Gulf, where the party was royally entertained by Messrs. Severin and DeImas Landry. From there the voyage was all along the coast, and the stoppilng Iplace at nlight was wherever thley happened to be. IDuring the cruise a visit was mllade and an ilnsplectio had of the Montagle cut-off, from IIell-hohe ill Vernmillion bay to thlle Gulf of Mexico. The Gazette starteld out to tell all the haps anld nmishnps of the trip. flow Nelson wis mietamorphosed inlto the suni of the eas'. How the stilngairees were vicious requiring the frequent imbibing of spirits, until the stingarces retired in diisgust. How no Imem ber of the party could work in a fish story, because every one was watching tile other, but we are not going to tell tales out of s:: o .1. Suffice it to say that it was one of those trips seldom had, but thoroughly en joyed by kindred souls who appreciate a good thinlg when they are in it. Judge I)e laillon one of thle party returned, bronzed by the sun, evidently in rugged health, and certainly in fine spirits. The Fire Company. Pursuant to call issued a large number of our citizens let in the court house on last Tlucs.lay evening, for tile purpose of organ izing a fire compalny. Mr. Crow Girard called the meeting to order, and in a few words stated the object of thle nlecting, and called upon iMayor Campbell to act as temlporary chairman. Mr. A. C. Ordlway was called u --n to act as temporary secreta-y. After a g 'naral discils.;ion it was decided that the best course to Ipursue would be to re-organ me the old tire company and thus save t .c tinme andl expense that would be nec essary in the organinzation of a new company. Iu accordance with tte decisiont of the meeting memaicrs of the old companyll who were present got together and elected Mr. VV. Campbell as temporary presidelnt and Mr. C. D. Caffery as temporary secretary, a. d pass ed a resolution to open the roll for new minm hers. They then nlade their report to the general meeting, and a recess was taken to allow all thlose who (lesireld to sign their names to the roll of menibers, and thirty three responded to tile call. After all who cared to had signed, the meeting was called to order and proceeded to the election of permlanent oflicers, which resulterl in the following: president, Wm. Campbell;. secretary, Samuel Plonsky; treas urer, Crow Glarrd; foreman, I. N. Saterfield; 1st assistant forcinanl, Wmn. Graser; znd as sistant foreman, i.. P. .agarry. A mlotion was then mllade and carried that the president appoint a commilitte on lby laws to consist of live mlemlbers. He ap pointed as such committee the following genl tlemen: Messrs. Crow Girard, C. O. Mou ton, John Vigneaux, N. P. Moss and I. N. Satterfield. It was moved and carried that the com pany hold a meeting next Sunday at 5 p. m. to hear the report of the conulmittee on Ily laws. On motion the new officers were instructed to take charge of the apparatus Ibelonsging to the company, allnd to see that such parts of the material as had been borrowed was re turned to the engine house. No further business coming before the meeting it adjourned to Iseet next Sunday at 4 p. 1. Carencro News. rom Our Regullar Correspondent. The new Council recently elected held their first meeting on the loth instant, and elected the following officers: A. Clleffer secretary, Henry Crouclhet comptroller, G. Blot treasurer, E. L. Estillette lamp com missioner, Samuel Broussard street com missioner, F. 1V. Courtney chief of police, J. P. Francez fire commissioner, and I. Ber isard town marshal.

Trahan, Odon Guilbean, Prof. C. Heichelheim, Si monet Dreaux, and C. Bernard. Messrs. I). A. Dimitry and Albert Guidry are presi dent and secretary of the band. They should be enccouraged to continue their organiza tion, which is really the life of our town and is composed of the best young men an the place. * " The congregation of St. Peters church ore making preparations to tender a grand reception to Archbishop Janssens on the 3rd and 4th of June. The christening of the bell, the ordination of a young priest, and confirmation of many children, will be cele brated in the best manner of which our peo ple are capable. Your correspondent will in the next edition of The Gazette endeavor to give a full pro gramme of the entertainment, which is to be given in honor of the visit of Archbishop Janssens. Mr. Romain Francez, civil engineer, with assistants are now surveying the line to be traversed by the Teahe Railroad between Arnaudville and Carencro.

Vhat do our tax-payers think of this? Meals at fifty cents, when just as good if not better coultl be provided at 25 cents. This looks like good manage ment(?) Our Police Jury is powerless to prevent it. Is it not the duty of some one to protect the funds of the parish, and see that its financial affairs are administered in a business-like and economical manner. Some people seem to think that the public treasury is a crib at which those sufficiently shrewd have a right to feed unchallenged More anon ! Rev. Fnthcr Laforest paid a short visit to Opelousas last Sunday. Mi. V. E. Dupuis went to New Orleans last Sunday. ** Mr. HIunble, of Eula was in town this week. ** * Mrs. Henry Breaux has been very sick. ** It takes about sixty per cent of the parish funds to nmaintain the luxury of a court at I.afayette, a great part of which is paid out in fees and mileage to an unneecessary num ber of witncsses. A wuorthless negro, s s tained by his attorney, is permitted to sumn non as many witnesses, as his fancy dic tates, solcmeties merely to testify to his un sullied character. Tie tax-payer "foots the bill" all thie same. How can we ever ex pect the parish, through its Police Jury, to assist tihe cause of education, as long as the preseot state of affairs is permitted to exist. Toritr:.x VmsRuxs. Royvill Items. Frorm Our Regular Correspondent. The incessant rains that we are now hav ing are proving disastrous to the crops. Cotton is the worst sufferer. So far, corn is good, and a few days of dry weather would enalble our farmers to finish up the "laying by" process. Messrs. Canmpbell and Voorhies were in our town this week, selling antd hustling tickets around for the hazar and ball, that is to take place in Lrfayctte Satur.lay, May 27. This is a good cause, and our citi zens all over the parish should show their colors, and help to compilete our high school. Royville will do its full share, as several of our people will attend.

We under stand that the manyvor is to appoint several special deputics, so that ballot box stuffing, etc., does not take place. CIIROKEE. Broussardville Drizzlings. From Our Regular Correspondent. Timses are so dull that it is quite a task to pick up any notes worthy of publication, hence our long silence. Perhaps it is due to the excessive rail, falls which have so duumfounded farmers and others, that nobo dy-save the youngsters-feel like talking about any iniportant matters. Of course time ':Glee Club', and "Merry Makers"-''no I matter the weather or the hoor-will made it gay, if not for others at least for them selves talk of their "future better halfs" or some one else, whose charnms are so much I admired. Nevertheless it is pretty well understood now that thle more agedt among our young gentlemen are soon to give a good example and cross over the nmatrimoniial line. Next Saturday May zo there will be a grand ball at St. Julien's Hall given under the auspices of the Five L.andry Hand. Mr. I). M. Landry, Manager, expresses his belief that it will be a success. We hear of a ball that lasted until seven o'clock in the morning, The long duration it is claimmed was due to the melody of the music which was so charming that the guests eveln as the mouse which was charmed into e~enity by the sounds of the violin of one of the musicians of old, were for a while I freed from all earthly cares and were car ried by the melodious sounds beyond the regions of the kingilom of Morpheuus. The new building put up by Mr. J. G. St. Julien and to be occupied bh Mr. Henry Fournet as a store is nearinig completion. It is a very neat little building 4oxZo with tin-roof and gallery. Toe matcrizl, for foundotion of the real dence to be erected by carpenter Georgs of New Iberia, for Mr. PI. 1illaud Jr. have been brought on the grounds. Capt. A. A. Labbe returned from a trip to Baton 'ouge and New Orleans where he had accompanied Shcrilf Broussard. Mr. Hebert Dillaud and lady were in our town one day this week visiting relatives. Quite a serious accident befell the twelve year old boy of Mr. Clet Leblanc Wednes day night, whilst riding back to his house at about dusk his horse clashed with a sulky driven at full speed one of the shafts pierc ing in between the bone and skin of the horse at the point of the shoulder, and the other shaft bruising the boy at a point above the knee. It is feared that the boy is hurt internally. He was picked up from the scene and brought home, senseless. DUBARDI.EU. The Base Ball Game. SThe Business Men of Lafayette have sent a challenge to the members of the legal fra ternity to engage in the strife of base ball, and the latter have accepted. The two teams are composed of the fol lowing warriors, with their respective ranks: THE LAWYERS. Chas. D. Caffery, pitcher; E. G. Voor hies, catcher; Crow Girard, Ist base; R. W. Elliot, ad base; Wm. Campbell, 3rd base; 0. iH. Simpson, slhort-stop; 0. C. Mouton, left field; Ike Broussard, center field; C. Debaillon, right field. THE BUSINESS MEN. Sam Plonsky, pitcher; T. M. Biossat and C. A. Thomas, catchers; Alfred Mouton, Ist base; J. P. Revillon, and base; C. O. Mouton, short-stop; A. C. Ordway, 3rd base; H. Hohorst; left field; B. Falk, cen ter field; Frank Moss, right field. Substitutes-E. Romero, J. Vigneaux, L. Plonsky, L. Levy, A. Caro, E. Pellerin, Jos. Plonsky, L. Nollive, F. Bellocq, P. Gerac. Umpire-W. E. Bowen. Referree-A. M. Martin. It is thought that a large number of people from all over the country will hasten to La fayette to view this titanic struggle. And efforts will be made to induce the various transportation lines to Issue a special low rate for the occasion, and if the crowd is oo large to be handled by these lines, at requisition will be made for the ice-man's wagon. Every individual member of the two nines will publicly pledge themselves to keep with in the bounds of christian warfare, and a large force of policemen will be appointed, and if there are not enough men in Lafayette parish an appeal will be sent to the neigh boring parishes for re-inforcements, and if any doubts should arise in regard to the in sufficiency of the force the Governor will be appealed to to call out the State militia as a precautionary measure-the life of the umpire must be preserved. A feature that should call out vociferous applanse will be in the costumes-each play er will be clad in a dlifferent colored attire. Ample seating capacity will be provided, but if by some unforeseen circumstance there should not be enough to accommodate all, no objection will be made to the men standing up, or reclining against a post-if they can find one. No objections to ladies weartug Gains uorogh or seaside hats, provided they don't open their parasols. Game will be called at an early hour so that at least one inlning can be played, as the management feel that the people are en titled to a show for their money. Vhlen the unmpire declares a man out the nudience mast not pelt him with brickats, but the player may kick at him, but it so much as a single hair of his head is touched the offender will be condemned to eat, in full view of the people, a depot hotel sandwich. A keg of cool beer will be kept on tap at second base, and every base runner will be entitledl to a swallow when he reaches safely that base. It is thought that from the stringency of this rule not much beer will be consumsed. When a run is earned the base runner will be entitled to an ovation-after the game, if he is not forgotten in tihe rush to get home. The physicians will erect a temporary hospital near the grounds, and have within all the things necessary for any casualty that may happen, and a corps of the Red Cross society have kindly volunteered their scr vices and will be placed in charge. Advices received from New Orleans state that the victorious "Reds" have their vision directed on the coming fray and will chal lenge tihe victors. If the dloor-keeper is not "Bunch"-ed out of the gate receipts they will be turned over to Treasurer C. O. Mouton, of the IfH. S. F. . For a genuine mirtlh provoker, the coming game is at the apex, and its novelty is "out of sight." It is confidently expected that a crowd numbering any way from 50 to 50o,ooo000 will be present to enjoy the fun. To paraphrase Mr. Golightly, you've got a treat to cumme; and if you miss it you wm-ill miss five treats in one. Spring Waters. One can scarcely imagine the large amount of money realized from the sale of the several brands of bottled mineral waters. For the purpose of illustration take tihe Stafford Spring waters-so thoroughly ad vertised. To look at it has a clear limpid appearance, similar to the eye as the Beau sejour park spring water. We have no rea son to doubt that the Stafford water possess, as claimed, medicinal virtue. We know, from a partial analysis made that the Bean sejour water has some,-perhaps as much as the Stafford. Again, the sulphur springs in Arkansas are much sought, in a word it is a Mecca for those suffering from certain ailments. Here in Lafayette is a spring with a thick coat ing of an oily substance emitting a strong odor of sulphur. It is not inpossible that this spring may possess as much excellence as those of Arkansis. Again, the Babin spring water is strongly impregnated with iron, and perhaps other substances that might give it much efficacy, especially where iron is recommended. There are many other springs in this vicini ty which if properly exploited might show much value. The Stafford water is put up in five pints glass jars. These jars probably cost, at wholesale, six or eight cents apiece. The expense of bottling can not cost much over one cent per bottle, and transportation to this place we would place at ten cents, mak ing a total of nineteen cents. What the local merchant pays per bottle we have no I the means of knowing but the retail price, I we believe, is seventy-five cents each, and there are thousands of bottles sold at I this price throughout the country. The Gazette can see no reason why the various Spring waters of the Parish of La- i f fayette shoul$ not be placed on the market. e The Gazette further, can see no reason why a sanitarium could not be erected near the sulphur springs, and be operated with success. r Is is very true that major Mouton has em Sbellished his place, and has put up comfor table and elegant bath houses, near his t spring. But The Gazette would like to see cottages erected at the several springs, and, n short, make our parish, what it should be, what nature has intended it to be, a sum mer resort. The salubrity of our climate cannot be surpassed; the scenery is delightful, we are accessible, by rail from all points of the compass, and all that is needed to make our town a Mecca for pilgrims seeking rest, re creation and health, is to take "a move" on ourselves and let the world know of our superior advantages for the attainment of these enjoyments. Let us ever keep before us this aphorism: "Providence help those who help themselves." And we'll get there Eli. CON'STABLE SALA.
