The prizes given by the Amer ican Legion for the best deco rated autos in the parade fell to Mr. Oscar Zimmerman who was awarded the first prize and to Miss Theda Murray, the sec ond. Both of these cars were so beautiful that it required close attentioh to observe which one should receive first honor. marks he then introduced Hon. Walter J. Burke and he was later followed by District At torney Vuillemot and Judge Jas. Simon. After the patriotic speeches were finally concluded, the program was followed by a se lection by the Chamber of Commerce Band and many of the visitors also afforded them selves the pleasure of witness ing thè pictures in the Elks Theatre. At night the Ameri can Legion gave a delightful public dance in the Elks Home with music furnished by a white who came up for the occasion.

Adrien Gonsou-'cane lin near Loreauville. This will be good news to the cane grow ers of Loreauville as it will be the means not only in securing greater facilities and a ready market for cane, but save thou sands of dollars that this year will be paid over to the rail roads to move the crop. A cen tral sugar factory is badly needed in the vicinity of Lo r'nnville more than in any part of the Parish owing to the fact that in other sections the two railroads are in reach of fhe cane farmers. Aside from the cost in transporting cane long distances to sugar factories a one from Loreauville. At the close of the skirmish the score stood 40 to 0 in favor of New Iberia. At the conclusion of three years of neace, celebration of the date has grown to what is the nearest to worldwide festi val that exists, unless we except the birth of Him who as Prince of All Peace made possible the terms by which alone man, after five years of iifimeasurable hatred, might hope again to be come fellow members of civi lized society. Therefore in each of the Allied nations November 11 has become an anniversary sacred to thr> memory of those who made the great sacrifice and one on which thought too should be given to those still living -who buffered that the world's great danger might be turned aside and overcome. —: o Rub-My-Tism for Rheumatism. factory located at Loreauville insures the saving of the crop J and very likely it will result also in keener competition and, J the other refiners will go out and bid on the crop. The sugar growers this year have been hard hit owing to the con dition of the money market. That of itself is bad enough, but when they are fifty had a hundred miles from a sugar re j finery they are also at the mercy [of the railroads. Just as soon as we can get positive assur ance that the factory will be erected we will make it known in our columns so that the farm ers in the vicinity of Loreauvillo will put down sufficient seed cane. This factory is badly needed and we feel sure tb > farmers of Fausse Pointe will do all they can to encourage the enterprise. WIFELY PRIDE, A mission worker says that, while waiting for the occupant of the first floor of a tenement house to admit him, he chanced to overhear two women con versing on the stairs. One remarked that her hus band always wore a clean shirt every Sunday morning. "Well, now", responded the other, "I never care much about Sunday, but I always sees that my man has a clean shirt Satur day afternoons, because that's the tiriie he's generally fightin,' nd when he does take his coat off to fight I likes to know he looks nice an' clean."—Wayside Tales. o— 666 quickly relieves a cold. m MiN Hat 9m M MM Ht M BccanM of Ita teste udJchMm effect, LAXA TIVE BROMO QUIWINI" - Quinine and does not tinging im head.

Mr. Patout was knocked unconscious and Dr. Shaw suf fered three broken ribs and was shaken up. It seems the three gentlemen had that morn-1 ing at about three o'clock boarded Dr. Shaw's elegant Buick limosine and Dr. J. II. White and Chester Haycock followed them about thirty min utes later and started out for a duck hunt at Lake Arthur. When ncaring Duson, there was a very short turn in the road and on the side of it a ten foot drainage canal. It being ex ceedingly foggy, before they realized the danger, the car was precipitated head first into the ditch and all went down with it. Mr. Patout was thrown out and knocked unconscious, Dr. Shaw slighly stunned and Mr. Broussard pinned underneath the machine was unconscious for a few minutes. Dr. Shaw saw his predicament and felt his heart to see whether he was dead or alive. Fortunately his heart was beating, but the doc tor discovered that both of his arms were bent backwards broken. It was then that the DRUGGISTS OPPOSE HAND LING OF BEER, WINES - OR WHISKY. Wholesale druggists are unal t^rably opposed to the hàndling ! of beer, wine or whisky, either for medicinal or other poses, F. E.

They came out and raised Ihe car off of Mr. Broussard and Dr. Shaw, with three ribs broken, dressed his arms the best he could and then had him removed to the cabin. Just about that time Dr. White and Mr. Haycock ar rived on the scene. An ambu lance from Lafayette was phoned for and Mr. Broussard known that no one killed. driven there with Dr. Shaw and Mr. Patout. Mr. Brous sard with both arms terribly mangled still having the hunt on his mind advised Dr. White and Mr. Haycock to drive on and make the hunt as he was then in good hands and would be cared for. We montion this owing to the rumors that the gentlemen had been deserted by the two last named, while in distress. On Saturday evening Dr. Shaw came to New Iberia and went back on Sunday to sec how Mr. Broussard was fairing in the Sanitarium. He was then brought home and he is yet confined to his bed, doing as well as qould be expected under the circumstances. When the report reached New Iberia on Saturday of the accident there was considerable anxiety among our citizens until the particu lars were received and it be was "Our primary policy is to support the government in ad ministering the laws of the country. Our record indicates how faithfully we have adhered ! to this policy. To date there has not been a single complaint pur-'against any of the 250 ma t e service wholesale gists. "However, there are a great , number of unscrupulous indr j viduals, such as prosperous bootleggers who have accumu îpl iegiti drug lated fortunes since prohibition, en4e^ v °ring to operate under the guise of a legitimate wholer sale druggist by obtaining a wholesale dealers' permit. It is to the credit of the associa tion that we lîavè virtually frus trated the efforts of these fradu lent operators, many of whom are now'serving sentences for law violations." MfT Holliday also pointed out that the Sùpreme Court has held that the states have the right thrpugh their police nowers to regulate and restrict the. sale of liquors for medicinal purposes. He said that many industries de nend upon industrial alcohol and that the tax. of $4.16 a gal lon was a source of great ifcv enue to the government. o To prevent a cold take 666. NOTICE.
