Lafourche Crossing, La.
Owing to the long rainy spell
which we have hal to endure lately,
the streets of our city are covered
with mud, and driving for pleasure is
not to be thought of just now. How
ever, the rain clouds have been dis
palled, and the warm sunshine to.
gether with the wind that now pre.
vails will soon make the mud look
like "thirty cents", and we can very
soon walk along the streets without
loosing our "shines".
Despite the fact that the wind was
high and biting cold last Wednesday
night, Mr. L HI. Lancaster and 3ir
Ernest Thibodenux, two popular
young men of our city, climbed to
the top of the stand Optpe where they
treated many of our citizens to a
fnoe pyrotechnical dipl~ay. The
climb to the top of the stand pipe is
a long and dangerous one, and,
although these young men brough 1
pleasure to many ini shooting off
roman cantles and sky rockets from
that dizzy height, we doubt not that
there were at least two femiine I
hearts in our town that were filled
with thaukfulness when the above
Smentioned young gentlemen landed
aifely on terra firma. a
