It is admitted that there has been mo systematic effort made to bring the merits of oar rich soil, genial clinmate, and other material advan sages before the world of home seekers. Except in the instance of she Southern Pacific railroad and the Watkins syndicate, no effective efforts have been put forth, and thea eompanies have been instru mnental in bringing in a large immi gration, but these efforts have been confined to Calcasienu parish. That parish is to-day settled by a thrifty and intelligent set of people, just that kind-that make the prosperity Ofia country:3 From being-way down is the scale that parish is to-day well up, and all because her peo ple have spent the time and means necessary to correctly inform the world, just the sort of country. they have got. We do not believe the state anent that the lands of Lafayette are by far more fertile and better adapted to the growth of a larger variety of plants, can be successfully controverted, yet for every immi grant that stops in our parish, Cal casieu receives fully Soo, and the season lies in the fact that they know absolutely nothing of our lands. No one can with justice feel jea bous of Calcasieu; she deserves every immigrant that steps within her bor- t ders, because she has gone after a them, and she should reap the bene- t fit of her labors. d In penning this article we simply l wish to show that the prosperity of I the parish depends entirely on the efforts of her people, and that the t, mention of Calcasies is for the pur- f pose of showing that her growth and ti prosperity came, not by any element j of chance, but solely by intelligentn effort on the part of her people, and tt teaches a lesson well worth emula tion. of th THE ASSESSMENT. Q UES- th TION. tA To equalize assessments so that of every object upon which it is placed am' will bear equal and exact propor- St tions of justice, without detriment to any, has been a vexed question 'in and a source of annoyance to the tc assessors who mean to do their duty strictly according to law. But it seems the law is of such a R nature that in spite of the best in tentions some injustice creeps in, but to what extent in the aggregate it is hard to say. It has been de monstrated by some newspapers in the State that while the small land owner pays taxes on a full valua- em tion of his property, the large and ts rich land owner generally escapes of with a moderate assessment. Some M time since The Gazette read a state- R. ment wherein it was alleged that the COI pal assessment placed on a large estate res was $1o an acre, and on the resi- 'me dence, costing $5000, at only £rooo; 1 while on the other hand, a small eXt Ste farmer owning So acres was as- rut sessed at .ro an acre and on his set shanty costing $300, the amount C. was fixed at $25o, a proportion out to of all reason, There may be many hie such instances throughout the State we for aught we know. It is in just tiol such cases where the wrong creeps rc in, and it is to correct this evil that the press of the State are agitating a discussion having in view the creation of a law that will make as sessments uniform upon the value of property. It is not lbo much to hope that the legislative commission recently appointed to suggest neede4 amend mnefts in the organic law of the State will find it within the scope of their duties to pay some attention So tlij important question. A system that will permit a reas enable assessment on the real value of property world, no doubt, prove an efficacious remedy to the present difective manner of reaching a true and correct assessment on actual values. F Our Royville correspondent says Le that he Intends to go right on agita- and Wing the question of placing his town Spe in the telephone circait. That's also tight, keep on pegging away. But 'Ihe (azette would suggest to the ten people of Royviie that they get to- fay g~d~ii and open up communication of c Soi r ogsett, in New Iberia, did have no doubt he will heed ple ,-Shelappeal.

As a gen eral thing children succeeded in an getting the most pleasure out of such La occasions, but in this instance the parents, and invited guests, seemed He as happy and contented as the little G. ones. ret Mrs. E. 1V. Glean, the talented principal of the school, was untiring Th in her efforts to see that all enjoyed as themselves; and she certainly suc- ab ceeded most admirably. he The picnic party left town at 9:3o a. m. A number of large to wagons were fairly loaded down with children, their light and pretty cos tumes, and sweet smiles, formed a most stril~sg and pretty picture. thc After a pleasant ride talong a . road E. skirted on both slides with beautiful ant plantations of cotton, corn, and Ic sugar cane, the happy party reached be the Carencro springs, where they decided to spend the day. And a lik I)icturesque- spot it was. Shaded by is large majestic oaks, the bright sun (ldr shining . through occasional breaks tim in the boughs above, like so many 'een shafts of silver, adding beauty to ev- the scene and the running hjther and Lose thither of gayly attired children, ess, their shouts and laughter, ringing rery through the woods left a memory v as that will not soon be lost. At one o'clock covers were spread rt of along the green sward, and children I for and guests were invited to partake of a meal made up of the outpour 31'5 ing of over seventy baskets. Im ojI5 agine the assortment. l'S Everything was choice and dainty ...7 qnd although there were many 1 healthy appetites to appease, all ..31 were provided for. ead_ ing, After the feast those with musical inclinations were entertained by a ,ade duet charmingly rendered by Misses han Emma and Lula Jones. Miss Birdie Palmer also- sang a beautiful solo. ley. The event. of the day,-the. one C. that so fully spoke of . the efficient and painstaking training of Mrs. atte Glenn, and Prof. Heichelhiem, were the recitations of several little the boys. - 3 The apIlausc accorded Master ..26 Dalton Courtney's recitations of the' - "Burial of Sir John Moore," was ·-57 112 well deserved. Master Dalton is a :..8 very bright lad, and a good repre sentative of the Carencro school.' The recitation of Masters Henry 26 and Valsin Guidroz, were well ren Sdered. The recitation. concluded -42 with a song entitled, "'The Animals," e6 try was given perfectly by Master Luke .._6 Crouclhet, Carmnelis Sornnier, Louis Maynon and.Leonce Prejean. These are very small boys, who evincedl sh. careful training at the hands of ent their teachers. Hon. H. E. Toll, parish seperin 35 tendent of public schools, was pres - ent and much pleased, and expressed 56 his satisfaction at the wonderful 20 progress of the pupils. 21 At half past five, the merry picnic 32 party started for home all feeling Jr that they had spent a most happy .25 and enjoyable day. 1). * * * .t6 Royrille Items. .41 WVe hope our citizens will continue .17 and agitate and urge the Railroad 9 question, and not let that matter .26 drop, when we have it nearly in our So grasp.
