Ie AIamr-Ne iMae PLs kphtr EVANIfLINE DEFEATS PARISH SCHOOL TAX Prominent Men Demand For Another Election--Five Mill Tax Proposed. 'The election held in Evange line parish last week was carried by the opposition by a vote of 80( to 381. The property assess ment against the proposed three mill parish school tax was also very heavy. Whilst the school board was in session for the purpose of tabulating the returns of the election *prominent tax-payers from Mamou, after voting down the three mill tax, asked the oard tocall another election for -alive mills tax, to be levied for teni years. A delegation from Pine Prairie was also present to demand another election. The members of the Evange line parish school board, aided by several of their progressive friends, labored strenously to have the tax voted, realizing that Louisiana and especially this section of the state was al ready to far behind other pro gzssive states in the educational line. They appealed to the tax ayers to vote the tax for the `purpose of promoting the educa tion of the younger generation of the net parish, but all to no avail, as the tax was ignomoi tously swamped under. It is expected that if another election is held many who voted against the tax will vote for it, as Evangeline, like St. Landry is badly in need of funds for the purpose of conducting the public schools properly for at least ~etgt or nine months. Ville Platte, the parish seat of the new parish went heavily against the tax, as well as all the other larger polls. lrs Sabatier Burried Mrs. Eugene Sabatier, nee Garrugues, who died in Iota, on last Wednesday morning at 2 o'clock, after an illness of a few -sys with acute pneumonia, was buried in this city on 1 hursday morning, interment being made in the Catholic Cemetery, of which church Mrs. Sebatier was a devout member.

COURT EXONERATES CROWLEY PHYSICIAN Dr. E. M. Ellis Wins $35, 000 Suit Against Him for Damages. Judge William Campbell ren dered a decision on last Monday at Crowley against A. D. Theo dore of this city, who sued Dr. E. M. Ellis, head of the Crow ley Sanitarium. for $35,500 for malpractice. Dr. Ellis got judg ment for his fees. Judge Campbell claims that Theodore failed to prove a sin gle point and that the evidence brought out by the physician's side proved that the operations probably saved Mr. Theodore's life. The outcome of this case was awaited with a great deal of anxiety by the doctors of this state, as Dr. Ellis is well known throughout the state and is look ed upon as one of the leading physicians of Southwest Louis iana. His reputation being at stake, Dr. Ellis secured some of the most prominent physicians of the South to testify as experts in his favor. The friends of the Crowley physician have been congratu lating him upon his victory in this important case, whilst he is at the same time receiving con. gratulations from many of his friends throughout the state. Mr. Theodore, who was oper ated on by Dr. Ellis, last year, claimed that the operation was unsuccessful and would eventu ally shorten his life; he too had some experts testifying in his behalf. Missionary Notes BY THE SOCIETY. Do missions pay? When Mr. Watt visited North Africa he could not gain an (n. trance into the Mahommedan universities. Upon his last visit he found that he could gain an an entrance into them, but it would not be wise, that he would simply fan the flames of fanati cism. With this modicum of encour agement, he engaged the largest theatre in Egypt and invited the students to come. Night after night every place was taken by attentive hearers; no attacks were made upon the faith of Islam, no destructive work attempted; simply a pure Christianity was presented. On one evening those who would "like to believe" were invited to meet the speaker in an after meeting in a hall une-half mile distant from the theater. Even Mr. Watt's faith was amazed when he found that six hundred students, mostly Mohammedans, followed him to the meeting for earnest inquiry into the way of salvation through Christ! ' Can we find such a demonstra tion of faith in our own land? A Correction.
