others a soft brush. Our stock

petent carpenters to take charge
of the construction of school
houses in the parish, the work
of building these was delayed for
a long time, but the "building
committee" of the School Board
finally succeeded in making all
necessary arrangements to in
sure the completion of the school
houses most urgently needed, in
time for the opening of the cur
rent term of the rural schools.
Work on the Begnaud school
building in the first ward and
the Albert Duhon school build
ing in the eighth ward is already[
far advanced, and both of these
buildings are being substan
tially constructed and will pres
ent a very tasteful appearance
The Romero school in the
fourth ward will be the next one
to receive the attention of the
building committee, and work
on the new school at Duson will
be taken up as soon as the land
shall have been deeded to the
School Board according to agree
It is the intention of the Board
to equip these new buildings
with modern school furniture
and fixtures so as to make
school work as pleasant and as
profitable as possible to the pu- 1
pils in attendance.

to form character." Parents

children should be encouraged
to feel that these belong to them,
that they may have an opportu

On the bright, glorious morn
ing of the hallowed day of All
Saints, her beautiful soul re
turned again to its Maker. Sur
rounded by her sorrowing fam
ily, she passed through the dark
valley, and as her loved ones bade
good-bye, angels joyously led
her to the pearly portals that
stood ajar to receive one of God's
own children, and methinks we
heard the Master's voice sayinfg,
"Well done, good and faithful
servant, enter thou into eternal
Hers was a life of unselfish
devotion to her children and her
home. She reared a large family
to useful womanhood and man
hood, and they, in return, lavished
all their love on her and soothed
her declining years, and truly do
we believe that "her children
will arise and call her blest."
To the aged husband, who is
thus left to mourn the loss of a
devoted companion, do we in
mingled pain and grief, extend
the sincerest sympathy, and
pray that God will give to him
the peace that passeth all under
standing. This world is better
for her having lived in it, for she
was a woman of superior judg
ment, giving good counsel, a
cheering word, and a bright
smile to all who passed her way.
Those who knew her best, loved
her most, and many are the
friends who will miss her from
her accustomed place. Her
death was the close of a noble
Christian life-a life of devotion
to her God, and as she lay beauti
ful in death, we realized that she
had not lived in vain, but that
her sweet presence would be
felt in her home in after years,
and that the influence of her
Christian life would go down
through the ages, a beacon-light
to guide the faltering footsteps
of others. We feel that she left,
as a memorial of her saintliness,
the little church which was so
dear to her heart, and which, but
for her beneficence, we would
not enjoy. It bespeaks her
great desire to influence others
to follow in the paths her steps
had trod. Truly, they were
paths of peace and righteous
ness, leading to a beautiful home
beyond the skies, where wife,
mother, and friend awaits the
loved ones for whom she never
ceased to pray. God grant that
as the golden chain is severed on
earth, so may it be joined again
Farewell, dear one,
Thy work is done,
To God we leave the rest.

Death of It. A. Vahader('ruyssenl.
H. A. VanderCruyssen died at
his home in Lafayette last Satur
d'ay night. He was forty-four
years old and he had been a resi
dent of this town for about ten
years. Although a native of
Belgium, his life work was ac
complished in this country, and
he had become thoroughly iden
tified with our government and
institutions. When but a youth
he arrived in New Orleans, and
after remaining there a short
while, he made Breaux Bridge
his home until about ten years
ago when he came to Lafayette

Mr. VanderCruyssen was a
sufferer for the last few months
of his life, but he bore the inevi

His loss will be felt by the t
community, as he had always
been an active participant in all
that meant the progress of the
town. Of an inventive genius,
his talented handiwork was gen
erously offered to any organiza
tion aiming at the public weal.
He was married to Mliss Con
stance Broussard, of Breaux
Bridge, and besides his widow,
he leaves five little children, who
mourn the untimely taking off of
a husband and father. ,
Tihe funeral of the deceased
was held in St. John's Catholic 1

From the Shoe andi Lenther Gazette.
The Gazette recently noted a
statement that the grocers of
lBenton Harbor, Michigan, were
all keeping their stores open till
ten o'clock at night, one firm
going even farther than that and
keeping open all night long.
This is progressing backward,
with a vengeance. There may
be good reasons for keeping the
stores open till ten o'clock on
ltperhaps one or at most two
nights in the week, but till ten
o'clock every night is utter
A shoe store, or a general
store keeping shoes, might not
be atffcted by such action on the
part of the grocers, although
the example would have its in
fluence on the buying public,
and would tend to lead them to
demand that all stores remain
And the public would not buy
a dollar's worth more, one week
with another, than they would
buy if the stores closed at a de
cent time of day-not a dollar's
In cities, there is necessary
night work that keeps a certain
part of the population (a small
p)art) up all night, and it is ne
cessary that they be fed, etc.
Therefore allnight restaurants
are needful institutions.
But these same people can,
and do, buy their goods in day
time. There is no need of keep
ing the stores open for them, no
call for it, and consequently no
stores are open.
It is only in the smaller towns
that the idea of working clerks
24 hours a day becomes the ap
parent ideal that the storekeep
ers strive to attain.
And the trouble very often is,
that some one among the lot who
was born with only half the
quota of legs that nature in
tended to give him when fur
nishing forth his mental equip
ment, insists upon waiting to
grab the last cent in sight
when the same cent would come
to him hours earlier, if it had to
come then or wait till morning.
It is progressing backward to
unduly increase the length of
the store-keeping day. There
is nothing in it, and it is con
trary to the best business prin
