The music at the Cathedral Sun
day night, when the last services
of the week's very successful mis
sion were held, was thoroughly en
joyed by the large congregation
that tilled the church, beiug of an
unusually high order, which the
sweet voices of Misses Alma and
Alice Kile sang very beautifully
most ably accompanied bv Miss
Josie D. Aaron.
The Drum Major's drilling is
getting the company in tine shape,
the rehearsals of this bright little
musical comedy going on apace
and it will be given with all the
latest songs and dances, right after
Lent. Every body recalls the
very attractive Gipsy Rover given
by the same home talent last
spring under the direction of Mrs.
Winslow, and they can expect
equally as good a show, this time
which will be given for the bene
fit of the Fire Department, a cause
in which every one is and should
he interested.
A very interesting communica
tion, full worthy of publication
has been received, but as it was
sent in without the name of the
writer, possibly oversight on his
part, it cannot appear in these
columns. Scarcely a week but this
same thing happens, and for the
most part these communications
tell of the happenings of different
neighborhoods, which the editor
particularly would like to publish,
but it is an inviolate rule of this
and every newspaper, to ignore
any thing sent in without a signa
ture.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Community Welfare League
will be held Monday afternoon,
March 27th. at 4 p. m. at the
Elks, when not only are all the
members urged to attend but
invite all their neighbors and
friends to do so. Every home in
town should hold a membership
and have a representative at the
meetings as matters of vital in
terest to every household, parent
and child in Natchitoches are the
raison d'etre for organization, so
if interested in your own, your
family, friend and community's
welfare, attend the meeting, Mon
day afternoon at 4 sharp.
An unusual amount of attention
has been diverted to the head of
Front Street the past ten days or
more where the installing of a
filling station by the Natchitoches
Motor Co., has held the interest
of many because of the method
used in the installing, size and
latest devices adopted. The tank
is of quarter inch steel, 10 feet in
diameter, 221-2 feet in length,
weighs 9,500 lbs and .bold 10,500
gallons of gaa. The station will
be of re-inforced concrete, equip
ped with two gas and two oil
Bowsers of the latest model and
double service can be rendered
thru the day and night, giving 24
hours straight. A new cash coupon
system will be put into use at the
opening, which the Natchitoches
Motor Co., hopes will be very
soon now.

He also struggled with the influenza
for a week but in spite of all that kind
friends and loving hands could do he
was beyond all human assistance.
He was born in the northern part of
Louisiana in the year 1819. His age
was 72 years, 8 months, 20 days. The
greater part of his life was «pent here
in Natchitoches Parish where he was
twice wed. In 1873 he married Miss
Janie Butler who died in 1893 leaving
seven children, four boya and three
girls. Eighteen months after the
death of his first wife he was married
to Miss Anise Steiphens. She and her
six children 1 two boys and four
survive him.
He leaves a wife, two sister^ thir
teen children, twenty-seven grandchild
ren and two great grandchildren, also
a host of friends other relatives to
mourn' his loss.
The body was laid to rest at the
family burying ground at Pine Grove,
