No Ticket Yet.
The committee appointed by the
meeting held at Falk's hall on Sept.
2, met at the office of Wm. Camp
bell, Esq., :last Monday. As the
conference was private we are not
able to say what took place, but it
is evident that there was no ticket
formed. The gentlemen compos
ing the committee remained closet
ed about a couple of hours, but it
appears that no agreement was
reached. It is understood that a
committee was appointed to con
sult parties in Vermilion for the
purpose of forming a district ticket.
From all appearances the gentle
men whose mission it is to form a
ticket are not having as;smooth a job
of it as mig'ht have been anticipated
after reading The Advertiser's re
port of the Falk's hall meeting.
After an agreement has been ar
rived at by the committee, which is
by no means assured if straws tell
correctly which way the political
wind is blowing, the campaign will
begin in earnest.

Wanted his. Home Papers.
Mr. Crow Girard has a good joke
on Mr. Ben Falk. When they
reached Havre and set foot on
European soil it seems that Mr.
Falk was accosted by a newsboy.
Of course he wanted to buy a paper
and as he is a thorough home man
who believes in patronizing home
industries under all circumstances,
he very naturally asked for a copy
of The Alvertisei. but when in
formed that that famous Democrat
ic organ, was not known over there
despite its French department, he
was very much disappointed; he
then addressed the newsboy in Par
isian French and with extreme po
liteness requested that a copy of
the last edition of The Lafayette
Gazette be furnished him; one can
easily imagine how surprised he was
upon being told that the greatest
expounder of Jeffersonian Democ
racy in the parish of Lafayette was
unknown to the French news-ve~n
dor. His next effort was to obtain
a copy of The Creole-American.
(As a matter of explanat:on we will
state that this was before the edi
torial of this paper about the re
moval of the bawdy houses had
been cabled to the European press.)
WVhen he was informed that the
great moral and non-political weekly
was also an unknown factor in the
French republic, he turned to Mir.

Plette Wins Again.
When we predicted that the
Union club would make mince
meat of the Butte Rougeans we
knew what we were speaking about.
To give substantial proof of the
"Laith that was in us" we offered to
bet a box of cigars and published
the challenge in the columns of The
Gazette. The paper had just made
its appearance when a postal card
was received from Oscar Pipes of
The Star stating that he would take
us up. The Gazette knew some
thing about the record of the Pilette
boys. They had entered the arena
against some of the most celebrated
clubs of this section and always
came out easy victors, and it could
not be possible that anything in the
parish of Vermilion would have the
slightest show when pitted against
them. Well, the game came off in
due time, and we hope Bro. Pipes
was'nt there to see his box of "Cot
ton Exchanges" knockcd out of
sight by the immortals from the
historic plains of Pilette. The
game which took place at Butte
Rouge, the home of a majority of
the players, consisted of five in
nings and resulted in a score of 3 i
to 6 in favor of Pilette's Unions.
IT'ne victory is still more creditable
when it is known that the victors
nad only played five innings whilei
their opponents had six innings in
which to make their six runs.

Unions and Robert Broussard and

Free Education for the Deaf and
Dumb, and Blind.
James Goodwin, a most agreeable
gentleman representing the Deaf
and Dumb, and Blind Institute at
Baton Rouge was in Lafayette Tues
day and paid The Gazette a pleas
ant visit. Mr. Goodwin informed
us that there were in this parish
twenty-five children who could, and
probably will, receive an education
at the institution in whose interest
he is canvassing. This beneficient
institution, which is under the able
management of Mr. John Jastrem
ski, at one time a resident of Lafa
yette, is supported by the State.
All parents and guardians of deaf
mutes between the age of eight and
twenty-five years, should take ad
vantage of this splendid opportu
nity to give to their children or
wards an education and qualify them
to earn a livelihood in the different
avocations. There is also an ex
cellent school for the blind under
the supervision of Prof. W. H. N.
Magruder. Here too everything is
free of charge. In cases where the
children are too poor they will be
furnished clothing and their travel
ing expenses will be paid by the
State. WVe take the following from
a circular handed to us by Mr.
Goodwin: "The discipline of the
pupils is thorough; careful attention
is pald to their physical develop
ment and health. The institution
being a State Institution, each pupil
being given every opportunity to re
ceive religious instructions from
clergymen of his or her faith and to
