CECILE
The Bride.groom found her lamp with light
And she too pure for dross of earthly blight.
To be Mary's child was her one delight.
For while on her bed of pain at night
She begged to be clothed in her veil of white
With ribbon blue and medal bright.
Cecile dear, beg the Sacred Heart to stay
God's wrathful hand
To cease this scourge throughout the land.
Many are unprepared to meet
With justice at His judgment seat.
Died Jan. 28th, 19119.

Schools May Close On
Saturdays

The following is a copy of a let
ter sent the members of the school
board by the superintendent: -
That the excessively bad weath
er will cause all the farmers' work
to occur all at once is admitted,
and feeling that the help of their
boys may largely assist them in
their late planting, I recommend,
in view of this situation, the begin
ning with Saturday, March 1, that
we discontinue teaching school on
Saturdays. This will, of course,
curtail the length of the session
in actual number of days taught,
but the influenza epidemic and the
awful weather conditions have up.
set all expectations, and with these
facts, in mind, certainly the school
officials could not be held respon
sible for any shortening of the ses
sion. If the board should see fit
to accept my recommendation, the
change for the closing of the
schools would not be affected; the
country schools will close on June
10, 1919; the Breaux Bridge High
School on May 30, 1919, and the
St. Martinville School on June 6,
1919.
The adoption of my recommen
dation would, of course, rescind
the Board's previous action to have
school on Saturdays, and I, trust
you will indicate your decision be
