The GAZETTE having received sever
al inquiries from citizens of this parish
concirning the trapping of muskrat,
3 We furnish the law on the protection
of Fur bearing animals, Act 79 of 1906.
Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gener
al Assembly of the State'of Louisiana,
That it shall be unlawful in this State
r to catch, trap or kill, or to pursue with
intent to catch or kill, between the
first day of March and the 15th day of
November in any year, any otter, beav
er, mink, raccoon or oppossum.
Section 2. Be it further enacted, etc,,
That any person or persons violating
the above provisions shall be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor and shall on
conviction thereof be fined not less
than $10 nor more than $100, or impris
oned in the parish jail for not less than
ten days, nor more than ninety days,
or both at the discretion of the court,
for each offense; provided, this shall
not apply to farmers or others, killing
minks, coons or opossums about their
premises or cultivated lands to prevent
Section 3, Be it further enacted,, etc.
That any person reporting to any of
ficer, authorized under the laws of this
State, to institute a prosecution, any
violators of this Act, shall receive as a
reward for such report one half the
fine levied and collected from the per
son so reported, and the remainder of
such fine shall go to the public school
fund of the parish in which the offense
was committed,
f There is no law forbidding the trap
t ping or killing of muskrats. We are of
_ the opinion that the destruction of the
muskrat should be encouraged, in order
" to prevent the vast amount of depreda
tion which they are doing to our lands
and our farmers. The Police Jury of
this parish has passed an ordinance pro
tecting the alligator on that account
being an enemy to the muskrat. We say
to the trapper of muskrat. Keep up
your good work, and as long as there
remains a vestige of the muskrat,
"Let us have his hide:"

The great ball announced in our last
issue to occur at Manuel Oscar Buras'
on Mardi Gras night was pulled off in
grand style despite the bad weather.
Mi. Buras' new\boat, the Standard
was utiliked by Mr. Buras in bringing
the guests of the occassion all the way
from Bures to Port pads, the guests
were all greatly delighted and didn't
"'go home till morning."
The school teachers from far
'down the river parts are reported to
all have gone to New Orleans to meet
Rex and his retinue.
Hon. Simon Leopold, who is always
a hustler and now directing the closure
of the Baptiste Collette Gap, reports
that the work will be completed within
Sten days. The opening in the river
f bank has done much injury to the oys
termen in that section and its closure
Sis welcomed by them.
; We are glad to say that the orange
r groves of the parish generally have not
been appreciably injured by the recent
freezes and we have now every promise
1 of an abundent orange crop this year.
SThe success of the reinforced cement
revetment used to protect the levees
built by the U. S. Engineers in a few
Splaces on the Lower Coast is leading to
its more general use here and we shall
hope for many miles of it within a few
SMore Plaquemine Enterprise.
The steampaceket boat, El Rito, mqde
her maiden trip in the Lower Coast trade

Charles Straud was seen on the bridge
and we understandhe is to have full

known river man is to have charge of
the books and clerical force and the new
venture starts out under faiorabled aus
The new boat is about 100 feet long
by 30 feet beam and contains comfort
able quarters for passengers and fine
large freight room. The motive power
is got with 150 H. P. Fairbanks Morse
gasoline engine. The enterprise has be
hind it some of. our most active and able
merchants, truck growers and oyster
men and promises to be a success from
the ,beginning. Notwithstanding this
new venture we believe there will be
a good b sjness for all, and we must
standby our old friends while we wel

Give not vain hope a willing ear,
Nor ovei idle fancy brood:
To wise thought give your care,
