CHARIVARI PARTY
Saturday '
About nine o'clock
evening the quiet and normally j
peaceful conditions of North Feder- '
al Avenue were shattered into a !
million atoms of discordant sound j
waves as a result of a visit by a
charivari party which was planned '
and carried out by friends and !
neighbors of the popular newly-!
weds, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Kurzweg, of
After the noisy salute, Mr. and Mrs.
Kurzweg so far forgave the dis
turbers that they invited them into
their beautiful cottage home and
heaped coals of fire upon their
heads by showering upon them
fruit punch divine and cakes deli
cious. The bride and groom were
toasted and other members of the
party were roasted, and music, wit j
and laughter blended delightfully
during the short hour the host and
hostess entertained their uninvited
guests. To show their further ap
preciation of the entertainment
supplied them, the charivari party
gave a parting salute upon their
various sound-producers and with
renewed expressions of congratula
tion and best wishes, disbanded.
Mr. Kurzweg, who recently wed
ed Miss Mary Louise Geneaux of d
Jeanerette, is manager of the St. !
Mary Wholesale Grocery Company
of this cit^ His exceptional ability
as a business man has gone far to
ward making his company probably
one of the largest dividend-paying
concerns in South Louisiana. Mrs.
Kurzweg is in every way fitted to
fill the important social position
which awaits her in Morgan City.
The young couple were married on
January tenth at- Jeanerette and
came directly here to occupy
cottage on Federal Avenue recently
purchased and elegantly furnished
by Mr. Kurzweg.

EXPERT RIFLEMEN
Washington, Jan. 22.—Declara
tions that since the days of frontiei
' life have passed, Americans are no
j longer enlisted to their former
' fame as riflemen are completely re
! futed by statistics, say officers of
j the U. S. Marines. These officers re
cently compiled data showing that
' splendid shooting qualities are still
! characteristic of American troops,
More than seventy-three per cent
of the 6141 members of • the United
j
!
I
States Marine Corps who fired dur
ing 1916, on the fourteen Marine
Corps rifle ranges, are qualified
skilled riflemen, according to the
table just compiled. Of these sea
soldiers, 921, or fifteen per cent,
are expert riflemen; 1044, or seven
teen per cent, are sharpshooters;
and 2518, or forty-one per cent, are
j marksmen!
It is doubtful if Leatherstocking
himself could outshoot them, say
the Marines.
Roy Morton and Robert Gi}len of
Morgan City were injured yester
d a y when the former's motorcycle
! went j n t 0 the ditch near Patterson.
Morton is in the Sanitarium at Pat
