The Enterprise
The Southwestern Louisiana Institute
Contractor A. E. Mouton is uu
usually happy these days. After
many months of constant work he
is on the eve of seeing the eomple
tion of the main building of the In
dustrial Institute. A few more days
and the elegant aud spacious struc
ture will be finished. Aside from
its great architectural beauty, this
building has many exceptional ad
vantages possessed by few others in
the country. It is thoroughly mod
ern in every respect, and now that it
is about completed, one may have
au idea of how well it was planned.
That the plan was conscientiously
executed there seems to be 110 doubt.
All, the president, building commit
tee, architect, contractor and every
body else connected with it, tried to
give the State a good job, and the
building itself is the best evidence of
the success of their efforts. It is a
grand structure which will stand for
ages as an eloquent monument to the
intelligence and skill of the builders
and to that enlighteued spirit of
progress which the people of Lafa
yette displayed in their efforts to
have the institution located here.
The cost of the buildiug is about
$41,000. In this are included a few
extra improvements not stipulated
in the original contract, amounting
to a little over $2000.
As soon as practicable the dormi
tory and other buildings will be
erected, preparatory to the opening
of the first term next September.

Call Meeting of the Board of Trustees,
X kw I bf.ria, L a ., Jan. :i0tli, 1901.
! The Board of Trustees of the town of
N'ew Iberia in et this «lay pursuant to call
of t!,o Mayor, with Mayor John Rroussani
in the chair and the following members
: present, to wit : Messrs. \Y. |{. Burke, J.
: Lnuiperez, J. A. Fagot, ,J. J!. Lnwton .1.
j A. French and A. M. Bernard.
The Mayor stated that the object of the
meeting was for the purpose of considering
I the advisability of substituting nil eight
I inch cast iron suction pipe to extend from
the pumps of the waterworks system to
! Bayou Teche, to supply water in case of
; lire, instead of the fifteen inch terra cotta
I intake pipe as originally provided for in
J (lie plans and specifications for the erec
I tion of the waterworks system.
Mr. S. Broussard appeared before the
Council and presented written objections
to the manner in which the waterworks
plant, etc., was being erected, when it was
moved by Mr. Burke, seconded by Mr.
Bernard and carried, that said protest be
spread upon the minutes, which is as fol
lows, to-wit :
New Iberia, La., Jan. :50th, 1901.
To the Honorable Mayor and Board of
Trustees, New Iberia, La. :
Gentlemen—As a tax payer and engineer,
I feel it my duty to call your attention to I
the manner in which our waterworks and j
electric lights are being done.
I feel as though 1 would not perform my I
duty as a citizen and engineer, if I did not !
protest against the unworkman like manner j
in which the system is proceeding. It
would be proper to inform you, that I am ;
not prejudiced against any contractor in i
charge of the works, or any one else ; my j
only object is to see that the people get j
value received. It was my intention to
carefully examine the specifications when
the contract was awarded, and I appeared
before your body for that purpose, was re
fused admission, on the ground that the
Council was in executive session.
Knowing that the specifications would
not permit of inferior workmanship I sub
mit the following items for your considera
tion endorsed by numerous competent
. The building is an abominable sight, no
attempt made at good workmanship, ap
prentice bricklayers were employed, one
laid ten brick six different times, and
finally the bricks had to be hammered in
line. Walls are mostly out of plumb, the
underground reservoir is put down with
inferior cement, a cement that no local
contractor would use for work of that kind.
1 have pushed bricks off after days setting,
this reservoir cracks almost daily which
were continually covered with fresh
cement. Pump foundations had a row of
bricks removed by lxind after they had
been laid a week. Engine foundations are
built of the same inferior cement. In the
pipe line single joints were poured three
times, hot lead on top of cold lead, small
pieces of cold lead were put in as a patch
and calked also.
The main pumps are roughly turned out,
no attempt made at good (inish. Summing
up of the whole, there is evidence every
where of cheapness in construction.
Respectfully submitted,
S ilvio B roussard.
Respectfully submitted,
S ilvio B roussard.
Messrs. T. K. Morse and G. O. Pharr,
endorsed Mr. S. Broussard' s protest while
Capt. T. W. Nicol took the position that
the work was being done in a workman
like manner and that first class machin
ery was being used, but the entire work
would have to be submitted to a final test
before being accepted.
Mr. Jos. R. Boutte being asked his
opinion concerning the pumps,expressed a
preference for the fly wheel type of pumps
as against the valve type. Mr. R. S.
McMahon, stated that he was one of the
parties sent by the city of New Iberia to
visit the several towns of the State and
inspect the waterworks plants and ma
chinery and that from information received
by him he was convinced that the ma
chinery being used is of the very best
make and that it was partially through bis
influence that Worthington pumps were
selected for the city of New Iberia.
Mr. Lee Lewman, stated that he had
been a contractor for the past 14 years
and that his firm had never constructed a
plant where the same had not been ap
proved by the parties having the work
constructed and that in more than one half
of the cases the parties had volunteered
to give them certificates of the good work
manship and material used in the con
struction of the works and that the firm
wants to put out a fire she doesn't
heap on oi) and wood. She throws
on water.kno wing that water quenches
fire. When a woman wants to get
well from diseases peculiar to her sex.
she should not add fuel to the fire
already burning her life away. She
should not take worthless drugs and
potions composed of harmful narcot
ics and opiates. They do not check
the disease—they do not cure it—they
simply add fuel to the fire.

Sing More and Scold Less.
Of course you are crowded with
work, but that is no excuse for
your failure to have singiug in
your school. Five or ten minutes
given to singing during the day
will be time well spent. A good
rousing song at the opening of
school will arouse the pupils to
take their work with enthusiasm
and they will pursue it with greater
energy. A song at the close of the
day may remove all unpleasant
thoughts of the day from the mind
and the child will go home con
tented and happy. Singing has a
very wholesome effect on discipline.

nany Teachers Talk Too Much.
A fault of ruauy teachers is too
much talk. They multiply words
without knowledge, to the confu
sion of the learners' minds. The
ease of the boy who said, "I can
understand the lesson well enough
but it's the teacher's explanation
of the lesson that troubles me,'
probably has a good many paral
lels. The good teacher is ecouom
ical of speech. His words are few
and well ordered.— Ohio Teacher.
The Object of Education.
The object of education in the
public schools is to prepare young
men aud women for intelligent
citizenship and for the pracucai
duties of everyday life, and we may
as well acknowledge that this meaus
in a large majority of cases plebeian
life. Every honest man must first
be a bread-earner before he can be
a land-owner ; he must be a good
office boy before he can be a bank
president ; he must know how to
calculate interest on a promissory
note before he can successfully cut
coupons from bonds ; he must write
a good business hand a long time
before he can expect to sign
cashier's checks in a bank.— The
The World Needs More Sentiment.
We are inclined to grow too
practical, to measure everything by
dollars and cents, to work and worry
year in and year out, and grow old
and nervous before our time. Man
is something more than a money
making machine. Life was not in
tended to be one continual grind.
Give us more holidays, or better
yet, let us all observe those we
have. More sunshine, more fresh
air, more love, song nnd laughter ;
less drudgery, less slaving, less
strife, gloom aud sternness—give
us these aud the world be better as
well as brighter, and richer in all
that constitutes true riches. If we
are allowing our heaits to grow
cold as the frozen fields npon which
the sun of summer never shines,
or dry as the ground npon which
the rain from heaven never falls,
let, ns away from the school room,
the office, the bank, the pulpit, and
mingle with those who have not
learned mechanically to plod along
the old ruts. Let tis renew old
friendships, visit familiar scenes
and live over again the time when
the past seemed all joy aud the
fntnre all hope.— Midland Schools.
The facts of history, the mathe
