From the Weewly Iberian
In a communication received by
this office our correspondent wanted |
to know what had become of our
Oil Boom. He laconically asks, "Is
oil business decomposed or merely i
dead
"That for ways that are dark
And for tricks that are vain,
The heathen Chinese (is not alone)
peculiar."
I tu „ -, ;
ine iuture ot the oil business has |
! l ... , , , !
; been much discussed by,our people. .
j It seems to be pretty well agreed
i that "war prices" for materials and
; supplies has run the cost of a well up
j to approximately §20,000 —rather a
j high figure for a "dry hole." We
j can hardly "read our titles clear" at
I such, altitudes to which all prices
I seemed to have soared.

pumps arrived and were to have

A gas prospect has been located
north of Spanish Lake.
Other prospects are awaiting a
resurrection.

!
The Cotton Gin of Messrs. Barry
and Voorhies of this city is one of
the busy concerns of this place. It
is running full blast night and day.
We understand that farmers are re
ceiving as much as 70 per 1000
pounds for their seed cotton from
this establishment.
Iberia Getting Good Roads
The members of the Police Jury
have taken steps to call an election
to issue bonds for the building of
gravel roads in the Sixth Ward of
this Parish at a near distant date. |
The call will be published in the nextU
number of the Enterprise. From ;
what we learn, it is also the intention . H
of the Board of Trustees of New
Iberia to call an election for the
purpose of gravelling the streets of
the entire city. Main Street will be
paved from the Post Office corner
to the upper limits and a part of the
tax will be used to meet the portion
that falls upon the City to assume.
Of course this work will not be done
until after the sewerage system is
completed. There are but few Main
Street property holders opposed to
this improvement and it begins to
look like the present administration
will witness the completion of this
important civic work.—New Iberia
Enterprise. (
From Rayne Tribune
On the other hand, if a young mar
the
tus
new
ried man should not claim exemption of
it might be accepted at home as an
indication that he considers that
there are worse things than war.
Eye Troubles
May Be Corrected
By Glasses
Correctly fitted glasses are the so-.
lution to most eye troubles. Optic
nerves that are working under a
strain of badly fitted glasses or with
out glasses cause headaches and lead
to serious optic trouble.
People who wear glasses must also
allow for the decreasing power of
their eyesight, due to age or intense
j , , , _ j
service and have glass lens made
suitable.
>
\ou need not go to the City or
elsewhere to get expert service in the
fitting of glasses. We guarantee
perfect satisfaction.
Any style glasses or spectacles
wanted may be secured here.

Cultivation of the thornless cac
tus for the purpose of developing a \
new industry in Louisiana has been j
started by Mrs; J. E. LeBlanc, widow
of the late Senator Joseph E. Le
Blanc, at her home near Paincourt
ville, Assumption Parish. Mrs. Le
Blanc obtained a large supply of
cactus plants from the West and
they are now growing on her farm.
; The cactus makes an excellent food
I for live stock, including horses,
mules, cattle and hogs and is es
pecially valuable for milch cows.

Abbeville Progress
About seventy-five of New Iberia's
leading business men Sunday made
a special trip over the proposed New
Iberia-to-gulf highway. Dr. W. F.
Sarstens, a leading good roads advo
cate of the Teche scetion, who is
heading the movement towards the
building of the proposed highway,
was i n charge of the committee of
' nves tigation, which after an all-day
close inspecton of the route adopted
... . , *
resolutions strongly urging the early
commencement of the work.
Dr. Carstens, "in his speech to the
committee at the bay, pointed out the
advantages New Iberia would pro
cure among them the increased tour
ist travel on the Spanish Trail and
enormous fish and fur trade which
would by reason of the highway nat
urally pass through New Iberia,
The salt water fish and shrimp
trade more than repay the New j
Iberia taxpayers the amount they j
would be called upon to expend.
The question of placing the propo
sition in the form of a special tax
to be voted by the people of New
Iberia and the wards in a southern
direction directly interested will be
decided within a few days. Dr.
