Grandeur and Tranquility of Lake
Arthur Appeals to Philathea and Baracas. It was in the evening by the moon light, on the shores of Lake Arthur. The leaves of the towering oaks mur mured in the gentle breezes. A tran quil spirit rested over all nature, and a the scene was indeed beautiful. Then there fell upon my ear the hum of a motor and suddenly there ap peared on the scene an auto filled with a merry crowd. Another car came in. to view with possibly half a dozen 'fol. £ lowing. Why all the laughter and merry chatter? Well, it was the arrival of Philathea and Baraca classes of the s Presbyterian Sunday School. Instead 0 of the usual monthly business session and social evening, they motored over to Lake Arthur,, and there, mid the i] beauty and grandeur of the most beautiful lake in Jefferson Davis parish rested for awhile. 4 But the lake was too tempting and soon all were either bathing in its depths or riding over its cool surface " in one of the many pretty launches t flitting here and there in the moon c light. After a pleasant hour so spent, m all gathered neath the beautiful oakes sI and enjoyed a repast such as only the Philatheas know how to prepare. n But the spell of the lake was upon them, and soon all were enjoying a last ride over the bosom of the lake in the beautiful Vermilion. As they all stood watching the tiny ripples catch up the silvery beams of the moon un- Ia til the whole surface seemed to be a silver mirror, one and all declared that j, it was the most pleasant event in their F lives. We would like to leave them there; g but no, homes were waiting for them tt so they headed the cars homeward and a arrived in Welsh at a late hour, with minds full of the pleasant memories of al the evening.

On Wednesday, June 28, the Meth, odist Sunday School held their Annual Picnic at the Sportsman Park, just south of town. Both young and old at. tendants did full justice to the noonday repast. No where on earth can one gel so many good things to eat as at a Methodist Picnic. Shure there were fried chickens, and cakes and pies and salads and pickels and sandwiches and lemonade, and I guess pretty near everything else that goes to makeup a good square picnic dinner. After every one had eaten his capac* ity, the ladies gathered under the beau. tiful shade trees to witness the most spectacular base bail game ever played on the local diamond. Say but it was some fun to witness some of the play made by men who had not played ball in fifteen years. But what is the use of having a picnic if you cant have fun. The young ladies enjoyed the game of croquet and the children entertained themselves in the numerous swings. But all good things of such a nature must come to an end. The crowd left the Park just in time to escape getting caught in a heavy downpour of rain which accompanied the brief electrical storm. Here's hoping we have a better time next year. Johnson-Ardoin. At the home of Mr. Demar Hardy, last Monday morning at 10:00 o'clock occured the marriage of Mr. Fred J. Johnson to Miss Odelia Ardoin Rev. Father J. P. Ferrett officiating. After the ceremony the bride and groom and guests partook of a sump. tuous wedding feast prepared for the occasion. The happy couple are now at' home at the Johnson residence in north Welsh. Layne & Bowler Co. News Notes Mr. S. O. Scoggins made a trip to Elton Thursday in his car to inspect the progress of the work of the crew now drilling a well for Prof. J. H. Lewis at that place. S. O. Scoggins, Manager, and J. W.
