Morgan City, La., May 29--Ri
chard Spinner, a resident of this city
died this afternoon. He was thirty.
seven years of age, a well- to-do busi.
siness man and proprietor of the
Morgan City Bakery.
The deceased was well known in
ThilKolaux, where he resided for a
lobg time, being at the time proprie
tor of the Thilnbodauui Bakery, when
the same was situated on the lot
where Mr. Henry Riviere's handsome
residence now stands.
Mrs. Josephine Hasam, a resident
of New Orleans, who had been para.
lyzed for forty.seven years, recovered
miraculously last Sunday. She had
to be lifted into a chair and whleeled
around. Last year on Ascension day,
the congregation of St. Alphonsus'
Church agreed to make novenas for
her recovery, whichb devotions Mrs.
lHiasnim always attended with favor.
Sunday as she was coming from the
('hurch .be felt an inclination to walk,
and having tried, sneceeded. She is
now in perfect health anid able to
move albout with ease. Her recovery
is due to supernatural power.-Daily
The Eclipse Observed Here.
Last Monday's solar eclipse was
observed here under the most favorsa
ble conditions. The weather was
fine, and not a cloud interfered with I
nature's programme. The sight pre.
seuted during the progress of the I
moon's shadow, gradually obscuring I
the face of the sun, was beautiful, t
and at the moment of total eclipse it e
was truly grand. The darkness of I
night covered the earth, and stars t
shone in the firmanent, and for the I
brief moment of its duration, nature
itself seemed to have sunk back into 1
the repose of night. It lasted just
for an instant.
We have heard of some people
being frightened by the unusual
phenomenon, and of darkies in the
fields who treinbld with fear, as
they prayed fi,r deliverance from
what was to them an inpeindi'g
catastrophe; but we suppose there is
considerable exaggeration in these
stories. It is however t:ue that
chickens started towards their raoot
ing places when darkness b. gun to
overspread the e:,rth, and that the
roosters crew for joy wh'.n the light i
reappeared; while animals of a
higher order exhi;,itedl some trepi-la
tion and nervousnesýs during the, ecliie s
The reports of observation else
where are all favorable, al scientists
will soon be giving us the result of
their observations and their theoric.i
based on the observations of others.
