Twenty Members in the Organization.
-New Instruments.--Itegular
Coring events cast their shadows
ahead of them, it is said, and the
many and sundry tootings that have
been heard in Welsh recently, is but
the echos that announce the fact that
Welsh now has a band.
The new b'and consists of about
twenty members, nearly all of whom
are old -band men, some of whom are
quite talented in their especial line
of work.
The boys have been practicing un
der the leadership of A. B. Hall, for
about four weeks, and are so well up
on their work that it will not be a
great while before they are able to
furnish some first class music. They
have been somewhat delayed on ac
count of not having sufficient instru
ments, but this defect has been re
moved since a complete new outfit of
instruments arrived this week.
Their place of meeting is over the old
bank building, where they hold a reg
ular practice every Saturday night.
The name of the new band has not
been definitely decided upon, some
favoring calling it the Welsh Cornet
Band, that being the name of the old
band that existed here several years
ago, while others want to christen it
The Independent Band, since its in
dividual members have furnished their
instruments independent of any out
side assistance.
The boys are to be complimented
upon their efforts in this work, and the
people of Welsh are to be congratu
lated upon the fact that they will soon
be furnished with some excellent mu
sic. It is the purpose of the boys, in
the near future, to give some enter
tainments for the purpose of raising
money for the purchase of uniforms,
Any move of this kind will doubtless
be liberally patron!zed by the good
people of Welsh, who always extend
a liberal patronage to a movement of
this sort.
Oberlin Organizes Truck Growers'
The farmers and truck growers of
the Oberlin district, have demonstrat
ed that they are alive to their own in
terests, and the advancement of their
country, by organizing a truck grow
ers' association, which will be affiliat
ed with the parish association.. Their
organization was effected last Satur
day. with the assistance of Pres. Ben
Foster and Al Ribheck, of the varish
association Pres. Foster expressed
the belief that the Oberlin branch
would be one of the most active and
progressive"Sf the association.
There is great activity throughout
the parish in this line of work, and
Calcasieu parish bids fair to become
the great garden for the north.
It is a well known fact that this
country is, by its mild climate and
rlchb alluvial soil, especially adapted
to the growing of nearly every kind
of garden vegetable, and the fact that
we are located nearer to the great
nortlernomarkets than any other simi
lar districts, is an advantage that is
not to be overlooked.

over $3,400 had already been sub
scribed to the stock, and as it was
stated that this was the work of but

garding the ultimate success of the
