After the maskers dances the King,
his aides and his courtiers went to

The unmasking cleared up the mys
tery that had hung over our city for
many days. it revealed that Dr
Oliver Brand was King, and that his
aids were Dr. H. 8. Smith, V. J Kno
bloch and Fulton Rogers. His coor
tiers were P. L. Brand, W. P. )artit.
and P.A. A ngerran. Dr. Braul is
one of the most popular young gen
Ulemen of Thibodaux. He is a
prince of good follows. and the Roy.l
sceptre could not have been placed in
worthier hands. The Queen of the
Carnival was the beautiful Miss Lucy
Roger, a daughter of Mr. Ernest Ro
ger a prominent planter of this par.
iah and nothing could have been more
beautiful and Queenly than was she
on the night of her coronation. Her
maids of honor were Miss Laura Mor
vant, Miss lea Chasvin and Mies
Louie Philsou. The Carnival is over,
but the memory of it will live forever
in the heart of the citizens of Thibo
daux and the great crowd of visitors
gathered here. It was a grand sue
ceos, and all honor and praise is due
the Carnival Club for the delightful
entertainment afforded the crowds in
our city last Tuesday. Special thanks
and praise are due to P. L. Branl.
