OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF IBERIA PARISH AND TOWN OF NEW IBERIA. DEATH OF MAJOR JOHN F. WYCHE. : Silently the old guard passes away—one more has answered the ; last and final roll call. On Friday morning, Nov. 29th, Major .John | F. Wyche passed away at Belmont, j his country home on the classic j bauks of the Teche, three miles north of New Iberia, aged 66 years, 10 months and 26 days. He sue- j cumbed to an attack of pneumonia, j and the end came suddenly and un expectedly, and its announcement was a shock to his many friends, j Major Wyche had been a resident of Iberia for many years and years ana was universally esteemed. He served the Southern.cause with conspicu ous bravery and gallantry during the war between the sections, and likewise in the stirring days of the reconstruction period. He was well known iu public life to the promi nent men who since that period have shaped the destinies of the commonwealth. Inpired by love of country and patriotism he took a lively interest in public affairs, aud at different times held posi tions of trust, at the time of his death being a member of the State Board of Appraisers. He was a man of genial and generous im pulses and was warm in his attach ments and friendships, and among his numerous acquaintances were many who reciprocated in like man ner, and these will miss his hearty and cheering daily greetings. He was a member of Aurora Lodge, F. & A. M., whose members will at tend his obsequies in a body, con ducting Masonic services at the res idence and at the grave. The reli gious services will be conducted by Rev. C. C. Kramer, at the Method ist church, at 10 o'clock this morn ing, under the ritual of the Episco pal church.

Reciprocity and Infant Industries. ^Esop tells of a rabbit that, beg ging protection for her infant litter, succeeded in borrowing a hutch When the owner of the lodgings sought to regain them she was put off from time to time with pitiful pleas, until at last, on calling one day, the compassionate proprietor was confronted by the tenant and the now adult "infants," who dis played their teeth aud said, "Put ns out if you can." How like those infaut industries pleading with the American tax payer decade after decade for still a little longer lease of protection, and now, wheu the disconsolate fellow seeks merely a poor little 'reciprocity" corner in his own lodging, he is confronted with the giant progeny in the form of billion dollar trusts and told to "go 'way back and sit down." In his last speech the lamented President McKinley said:—"Reci procity is the natural outgrowth of our wonderful industrial develop ment. What we produce beyond our domestic consumption must have a vent abroad. The period of exclusiveness is past." Read the report of the Reciprocity Conven tion in our Washington despatches this morning and trace the influence the big industries that want a protective tariff retained in order they may tax the domestic consumer to the highest notch, re gardless of the fact that the policy shuts out of foreign markets no end of other American products.— x. y.

Lewis, from his home in East End, New Iberia, passed into that "rest that remaineth for the children of God. ' ' Eighty-four years ago he was born at the foot of Plynlimou Monn taiu, in Montgomeryshire, North Wales. The property called Dow lais, which had belonged to his family for many generations, had, beside the home, etc., a factory for the manufacture of fine white flan nel (for which the Welsh are cele brated) within a stone's throw of this pleasant ancestral home in one of the most picturesque spots in this picture land. The three grand rivers, the Wye, the Dee, and the Severn, take their rise, small rivu lets, singing and gurgliug, gather ing strength with every mile until broad and wild they are in the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Mr. Thomas Lewis of Dowlais (father of the late Mr. Mathew Lewis) was a man of rare charac teristics. A earnest member of the Calvanistic Methodist Church(more like the very strictest school of Presbyteriaus thau the Methodists of the'present day) his interpreta tion of the "law and the gospel" made no concessions to that easy self-indulgence so common to-day. At 6 o'clock, on Saturday night, all work ceased for "man servaut or maid servant or the stranger within his gates." Every Sunday afternoon (the town with its church es being miles distant) the neigh bors, children and grown folks, gathered under his hospitable roof to enjoy the instruction in religi ous matters they considered him so capable of giving. There were six sons and one daughter to help in this good work, and as most of them were gifted iu music, the services were very at tractive to many who had as yet not began to search for the "one thing needful." r rvpti vj iir "rraiüo guco iu tdic eldest son, and this grand old man had strong views as to the charac ter that should be borne by his suc cessor. His namesake aud eldest son, a bright and talented man, but given to self-indulgence in many ways, was farther from his ideal than either of the others, but after years of patient hope and dis appointment, he determined before his death to sell his property, al tnough the title of such a sale would be defective and little could be realized, but so great was the veneratiou with which the children regarded him that not one protest was or ever has been made. But after the home passed into stran gers' hands, his death following shortly, four of the six sons began to take an interest in lands far away. The third son, John Lloyd Lewis, came to America in the early thirties as a tourist, bringing let ters from friends to insure a pleas ant social reception. So delighted was he, that he went into business, and in a few years married and was well known and universally loved and respected in the Attakapas for many years. In 1849, Mr. Mathew Lewis, hav ing in 1837 married Miss Ann Thomas, daughter of Richard and Mary Price Thomas of Newtown, North Wales, crossed the ocean to see the land his best beloved broth found so delightful. After hunt ing about considerably he located Newport, Ky., began business across the river in Cincinnati, in which he continued many years. Mr. Lewis was -very active in Ma sonic circles, having become a Ma son in 1851, being a charter mem ber of Newport Lodge. In religion was broad, caring little for non essential sectarian lines. If there was a little struggling church near, mattered uut to which part of the Shepherd's fold it belonged, he naturally wanted to help in the Sunday school, in the music, iu finances, etc.—any way most need His mother was a Baptist, his father a Methodist aud Presbyte rian combined, his wife's family and his own children Episcopalians and so he loved them all for the good that thry conld do. For many years Mr. Lewis was a member of, and most of the time a vestryman in St. Panl's Episcopal Church, Newport, Ky. ; and mov to New Iberia in 1885 he was many years vestryman and ju nior warden of Epiphany chnrcb New Iberia. He obeyed the injunction "what ever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might." He believed that doty and objeet of chnrcb asso ciation was to cultivate personal The last few years of his affiliated with the M. E. Church and took much interest in large Snnday School class, as as in the general services. He seemed unconscious of the weight added years nntil be had passed 83d year ; then he sometimes spoke of feeliqg tired.

SCENE FROM D, E, Lester & Co/s Stupendous Production At Valley Forge By WM. L. ROBERTS ,,At Valley Forge" proves a most interesting- Colonial drama. There are many strong lines and the interest is carefully main tained by a culminative plot.— Kansas City Journal . At the Vendôme, on Friday, December 6th, '01. c r 1 would often spring from the buggy like a boy; but a slight stroke of paralysis in one arm some months since, told that the time for going home was drawing nigh. He only said he wanted to rest—"I am very comfortable ; I would like to lie and rest a little longer." Out of one of those quiet resting spells he called attention to the "interesting crowd" at which he was looking, expecting his loving anxious nurse to see the dear ones he was draw ing so near, but her eyes were still dull with earth's weichtiness.whilfi his had pierced lhe veil. Once when asked to take nourishment he said, "wait until I have finished sorting this wool," something he had uot done for more than fifty-five years. In early manhood he had charge of his father's factory and was consi dered an expert jadge of wool, some which they received from the distant isles of Australia aud other landf. As the weight of years was slipping off, days of his youth came vividly to mind. He was not sick ; he wanted rest aud God took him "to the haven where he would be" where rest and peace abideth forever. He left his aged wife, companion of 64 years, and two daughters, Mrs. R. A. Pomeroy and Mrs. Em ily L. Grant, and one son, William Thomas Lewis, five grand-child ren, Mrs. W. N. Miller, (nee Anna Grant,) Letcher Grant, Mrs. Jos eph Gregg, (nee Alice Lewis,) Ed ward and Arthur Lewis, and five great grand children. "We watched him breathing through the night, His breathing soft and low, As in his breast the waves of life Kept heaving to and fro. So silently we seemed to speak, So softly move abont, As we would lend him half oar powers To eke his living oat.
