view of plroviding slack waler na
vigatiuin all the y'ear in tie Bayou I
Teche from St. Martinivilil to Ar- I
naudvilie. a (distance of ti:ty-three
miles hblow St. Martiuville.
The appropriation is contingent
on the deeding to the United
States, free of cost, all laud ueees
sary for lock tand dam purposes
an darn feeders, and upon the
government being secured against
any possible claims for damages
resulting from the overflow ojif
lands by'reason of the lock and
dam iuiprovement or from the
draining of Spanish Lake.
This lake is only five miles be
low lt. Martinville, and it is plan
nod to tap that body of water after
the locks have been built, and pro
vide a six-foot depth of water in
the upper part of the Teche.
At present there is no naviga
tion above St. Martinville, and by
the construction of this lock slack
water navigation will be had dar
ing the entire year. Owing to in
filtration and other causes it will
be impossible to have any depth
in the upper part of the stream
from St. Martinville to Arnaud
ville until this lock is built.
Mr. Burdin will call a meeting
of the residents of St. Martinville,
the Progressive Union of that
place, the residents of Breaux
Bridge and Arnaudville to consi
der whether the deeding of a strip
of land on each side of the stream
for the building of the locks to the
government free of all cost will be
acceptable to the residents of those
towns.-N. I. Enterprise.

-Last Friday a cyclone struck
Alexandria and Jackson, causing
steveral deaths, injuring a large
number of -ersons and doing da
mages to property am6unting to
several hundred thousands of dol
lars. Alexandria suffered great
damages in the de.- ruction of sev
eral saw mills, other industries
and several buildings, mostly in
the new Welch addition. In Jack
son the greatest damage was done
to the State Insane Asylum. Sev.
eral persons were killed there and
a large number injured. Five
fine brick buildings were com
pletely demolished, six were un
roofed and twelve others more or
less damaged. The damage to the
Asylum is estimated at more than
one hundred thousand dollars.
The Machinists of New Orleans
are on a strike, one hundred and

The men demand a minimum rate
of $3,50 per day of nine hours,
and the machine shops offer $3,25
which offer was refused and the
men quit their work. Thirteen of
the machine shops and foundries
of New Orleans are affected by the

A New York man has just pa
tented a device for the encourage
m went of thrift. It consists of a toy
savings bank with a clock attach
ment. The clock is set in the face
of the bank and can not be wound
unless a dime is dropped in the
. slot. As winding causes the dime
to fall into the vault and the clock
will ran but twenty-four hours
without rewinding, the contrivantce
assures the accumulation of 70
cents a week. The theory is that
the necessity of depositing a dime
every day will lead to slipping in
other coins at odd moments and
thus astablish a habit of saving.
