fm. fead Is Struck Down By
Negro Band.
Wm. Reed, a welliknown farm
er residing between Opelousas
and Prairie Ronde, was assaulted
by a negro named Isaac Jean
Pierre about 12 o'clock Monday.
As it isreported Mr. Reed was di
recting the negro what to do, and
the black not doing exactly what
the old gentleman wanted, was re
premanded by Mr. Reed, where
upon Isaac Jean Pierre struck
Mr. Reed a terrible blow [on the
jaw, breaking the jaw-bone and
leaving Mr. Reed in an uncon
cious condition the negro took to
his heel and immediately left for
Opelousas.
After the old gentlemen had
been gone for sometime his wife
began to worry less something
might have happened to Mr.
Reed. After the lady saw that
the old fellow was not returning
she sent one of the children to
look for him.
:The little fellow looking for
Mr. Reed in all directions was
startled as well as shocked to find
the old gentleman lying - as if
dead, on the turn-row, where the
negro had struck him. He was
soon brought to, whereupon he
told the people what had happen
ed.0
Help was immediately sewrmon
ed to capture the black.
Work On New ,~lool House Soon
To Start.
The actual construction of the
np'w schoolhouse will be started
on in ajvery short while. For the
last few [days the contractors
have'been having a crew of men
at work ;clearing. up the old
Thompson place, on South street,
and as soon as the lot is clear of
alliobstacles, the [modern school
building will be seen coming up
as though (sprouting from the
ground.
The St Landry High School, it
is said, will be one of the best in
the state, and the people of Opel
ousas, who have voted 'the tax
for establfshing such a splendid
building, will never regret having
done so, as this city is sufficient
ly large to afford even better
than it will have. No city can
have a school building which will
be too elaborate and convenient.
Superintendent C. J. Thomp
son, on account of whose untir
ing energies, this city will be
able to boast of such a school
building, is to be complimented
upon his action. His work will
be; a living monument to his
name, and Opelousas will be
blessed with being in possession
of an up-to-date school house,
which has been inineed for a
number of years.
