Base Ball.
At Tetreanus Park on last Sunday s
afternoon was played two very inter- a
teresting games of base ball between D
the Plaquemine Maroons and the
Audubons of New Orleans and the
Thibodaux Greys and the Wagner. of
New Orleans.
Over one thousand people were in ,
attendance and quite a good deal of b
enthusiasm was manifested through. *
out the games. I
The game between the Plaquemine
Maroons and the Audubons was b
somewhat draggy and appearently o
one sided at one time but the Audu- T
bons got in some very clever work a
and tied their opponents the score b
standing 8 to 8.
The Plaquemine team is composed ,
of a fue set of boys and made quite
a happy impression upon our people t
as well as the Audubons.
The game between the Wagners d
and the Thibodaux Greys proved of t4
course very exciting as the game was n
close and hotly contested from the a
start to the finish. Several errors o
due to lack of team work on part of q
our boys caused the Greys to lose a
pretty game. Our men however did y
some excellent work considerinog that
it was their first game of the season. o
The Waguers are all old base ball G
players of long standing among which
were Joe Dowie and Speedy Berkely P
who are nothing more or less than a
tip top professionals. They put up e
a splendid game, and all the players t
seemed very jovial and friendly. 1
There was n,t one single murmur of 1
complaint from either side during the t
entire game and both teams played
splendid ball. When the game was
called the score stood 7 to 5 in favor
of the Wagners.
Gibbs, the California twirler, pitch
ed a highly satisfactory game and
seemed it good shape. He has high
speed, throws to the bags with ease
anud accuracy, Is cool and calm, has
good control of his balls and is a
good safe player. Mr. Gibbs is a
very fine man and we hope to keep 7
him with us, throughout the whole i
season. He is at present hard at E
work as captain of the Greys in get I
ting the boys in proper trim for Sun I
day.
The Abita Later club will meet
our team tomorrow and our boys are
going to try their hardest to snow the
Abitas under. A good game of ball is
promised and we hope every body
will turn out and encourage our boys
by their presence.
A grand stand 60x30 has been
erected in the park and those who
attend the games from now on can
have all the shelter and comforts
necessary and the games can be en.
joyed without having any thing to
mar the pleasure of the evening.
We hope that the attendance to.
morrow will be large as the Base Ball
Association is going to a great deal
of expense to keep up our team and
If the peopk do not come forward
with the proper support every thing
will in all likelihood fall through.
But we think that the people of
Thibodaux will aee that the Base Ball
Association does not fail in its at
tempt to afford some amusements for
the people on Sundays thereby enliv
ening the town to a considerable ex
tent.
Dont forget the Abita Waters and
the Thilbodaux Greys will cross bats
to-morrow. Be sure and attend.
Convent Festival.
Sunday was a greatday for the
town of Thibodaux but principally
for the 'oevent Festival which was
esuch a decided success. Our town
was thronged with visitors and the
Festival was largely attended. The
day was indeed lovely and every one
seemed happy and in for a good time.
Our kind Sisters nto conjunction with
the good ladies who have been labor
ing so earnestly for the success of
the festival ought to feel amply
repaid for their work. The good
ladies of Thibodaux deserving of
much praise for the faithful and
sealous manner in which they worked
and we mught say struggled for the
success of the festival. The Pelican
Club together with Mr. Wilson are to
be highly complimented for favor.
rendered the Sisters as well as the
great interest they have manifested in
behalf of the Convent
The people of Thibodaux God
bless their generous souls come in
for a large share of praise for the
liberal way in which they responded
to the appeal lately sent forth from
the convent.
The festival was a success-a
genname success-a gratifyiog fact to
all who are interested. The net pro
ceeds of the fair amounts to the
handsome sum of $1,565.
The fair for the benefit of the
Chcekbey Catholic church will be
3 held on the 20th and 19th of ths
- month. Father Tessier informed us
Sthat he would appreciate sery muuch
any asistsente that the people of
Thiboalux might gender him. We
have no doubt but that our people
will aidl ths kind father in making
his air a Bauaial ,uc2,es.
Firemen's Parade.
Another great and gala day is in
store for Thibodaux and its people
and that happens to be Firemens
Day, the 16 of this mouth in other
words next Wednesday.
The different fire companies have
gone to some expense to put out a
good parade and no doubt the .]if
ferent companies will make a credits
ble showing. The decorations of
some of the engines will be perfectly
lovely.
Each company will be headed by a
band together with a handsome squad
of marshalls and honorary members.
There will be several hundred firemen I
all uniformed in the parade and a
beautiful sight will undoubtably be
presented. There wtii be a very
large number of marshals this year
and the turn out thia year promises
to be the grandest in the history of
our fire department. The men who
do service in this department ought
to be given every possible encourage.
ment. rheir work is indeed a com- I
mendable one and a purely voluntary
one at that. The excellent parades
which our Firemen have given in past a
years is suflficent proof to say that t
the interest and welfare of our com.
muntty is being zealously guarded by
our deserving firemen who are the t
foes of conflagrations and like terrors. r
The citizens of the parish and the
people of the adjoining parishes are
most cordially invited to be in Thib
odaux on next Wednesday to witness
the annual parade of our Firemen. i
A good and an unusually good time
is in store for those who accept of
this cordial invitation.
The parade will be headed by ex
State Senator J. D. Shafrer Jr.
Let every body turn out rejoice I
with our firemen in their jollificatlons
