T4 TI VES. 4 In the matter of the public print- I ing the members of the Policc Jury s have shown themselves worthy of the trust they hold. They under- s stand their duty toward the public l and that duty they performed faith- c ful.e * As in duty bound, they let out c the contract for the public printing, decided jthtd decided that bids should be re- v ceived sealed. C The wording of the call The t Gazette did not clearly understand, i whether bids would be received so sealed or opened, hence had pre-t pared none, but stood ready to put a in on4in any manner that would be Y determined upon. It being decided e that sealed bids only would be re- r ceived The Gazette wrote its offer th there and then proposing to do the tA work free of charge. The Adver- a tiser, had its offer already written S and sealed and which contained e the proposition to do the work and R pay a bonus of zxo for the privilege. p And the Polic Jury accepted the A bonus and awarded the contract to A the Advertiser. F This action of the Polic Jury is E commendable, for it goes to show T that they mean to perform their du- R ties without fear or/navor. pi The Gazette is perfectly satisfied gr worth the outcome. o A Fine Number. The midsummer Cosmopolitan, th the first at the new price of zalj ca cents per copy, though unchanged Ri in size, excells any other issue of Cs that magazine in the number of its St distinguished contributors, in theto i~erest of its contents and in its overfowing illustrations by famous set artists. Francois Coppee, William set Dean Howells, Camile Flammarion. the Andrew Lang, Frank Dempster Sherman, H. H. Boyesen, Charles DeKay, Thomas A. Janvier, Colo nel Tillman, Agnes Repplier, and La Gilbert Parker are a few of the Ct names which appear on its title page. Three frontispieces, all by famous artists, furnish an unusual feature, and among the artists who contribute to the irg illustrations bel adorning its pages, are Laurens, see Reinhart, Fenn, Toussaint, Stevens, litt Saunier, Fitler, Meaulle and Fran- dic sen. The midsummer number is intended to set the pace for the magazine at its new price of X234 cents a copy, or $z.5o a year. The roa magazine remains unchanged in size and each issue will be an advance 1 upon ,its predecessors. Literally Ch every known country is being ran sacked for material in the hope to bring The Cosmopolitan forward as the leading magazine in the world. of Sur Carencro News. torm Oar Regular Correspondent.

Grand Coteau Con re- vent is conducted by the "Sisters of the Sacred Heart," which is es The sentially an order of teachers, devot- I mnd, ing their every energy and whole ived life to the training of the young, en pre- trusted to their care. Their methods put are praiseworthy, and unique, as t I be young girls under their charge are ded expected to a certain extent to com re- port to the rules by which they are tffer themselves governed. Their enter- v the tainments or exercises are void of c ver- all frivolous show. Theirs is a tten school of long, tried, and established ned eputation, and from its doors the and most refined and accomplished tge. women of our state have came forth. the At the exercises just referred to Miss. to Antonia Melchior, was awarded the h First prizes, for Success, Instruction, Is English and French Grammar, P Low Translation, Style, French History, du- Recitation and application.
