Don't look upon anything as a trifle-and therefore, undeserving of careful attention. 1'rlfles make or mar the success of every one. They are not Ireally tril~es, but only apparently so. It may seem a trifle whether you have a bank account or Evr not. It ls not a tril~e. Eeyemployer has more confidence, and will give more re spoinhible employment to the man or boy whQ saves who has a bank account. Moreover, the dollars you fritter away do you no good Your dollars in our bank are pushing you nearer to independence every day. E. 5 Rebsitax, yfaf by . P. Shaver, PRESIDENT. F...u£apqaq..* CASH4IER. BASE BALL Ihibodanx and Donaldson ville. Score 1 to 1. Th t The Thibodaux Greys played the Donaldsonvllie Professional's In Doo. aldsonville last Sunday and demon- ' itrated to them they could play ball just a little and that they were not s awful easy as some people had 1 imagined. The Professionals have made such a big "rep" this season by vanquh hing every team which has gone against them that the Thibodaux hoys debated the question for some time before they could muster up the courage to ask Manager Muse, man of the Professionals to please Londescnd to play the Greys. Mr. iloseman very generously granted their rrquest on one condition and that tbny would try to make It I lively for the Professionals. So the dame was arranged. What a terni- I hie undertakiug; what a hopeless task they had assumed in trying to 1 play winning ball with the Donald c sonville Professionals. The very I idea of such a thing. Why what on I earth was the matter with the Mana. ger of the Greys in taking his team up against such a brick wall as the Professionals. Such expressions as "the Greys cant play ball;" "They will be shut out," "The Profession. als will make fifty runs on the Greys '*they went he in it" and so on en ough to fil volumes but the Greys . never lost courage and continued their daily practice as though they were getting in trim to play Houma. Yes we admit the Grey. are a remark* able set of fellows possessing a con sdderable amount of nerve but in spite of the repeated warnings of their friends, head strong as they are, they absolutely refuaed to have the game called off because they wanted to play against a team which it they came out victorious they would 'schieve for themselves immortal fame. The day came and the hour arrived and the game was called and it would have been goose eggs upon gose eggs until the ninth Inning It the empire had not made the Professionals a present of a ran in the Second Inning That the Professionals were not en' titled to this run was evident to every one but we suppose that the umpire allowed the run to be made because he did not desire the Professionals to suffer the sad fate of being shut out, and they most assuredly would have been had it not been for the fact that they were made this most exesilent present by the mm* pire The Greys were in great trim although some of the beat players in the team were by so means at ther best but at any rate put up a splen did game. Pierce was too Seres as the Booma Courner expressed it, for the 'rotessionsis could'nt get on to his wonderful curves. He pitched a beautiful game and had magnficent control of his balls. It was generally agreed last Sunday by all who wit nessed the game that Pierce had pitched the prettiest game seen on the Vonaldsonville diamond this season. Spies caught a very fine game. Knobloch covered first base I. great shape. Doherty played a good game but was not at his best. LeBlano put up a magnificent game and saved the day for the (reys by batlog out a three bagger in the ninth inning scoring Fudger. When LeBlano hit out and everybody saw that a run wasgntng to be made the people in the Grand Stand as well as the Rooters and Fans went wild. Hand-. kerchiefs were waved, hots were tossed in the air, umbrellas were whirled around the rooters yelled themselves hoarse, the ladies added their plaudits to the terrible uproar and peudemonum reigned for soma time. LeBilaw was the hero of the hour. To show appreciation for his feat a collection was taken up and he was tendered the nice little sum of nine dollars and thirty five cents. Fwdger played a fairly ggond gsime. Trosclnir made several beautiful catehes in letfi eld and put up a great game. Delsane and Doherty held down their positions very credi. tably. After the seconed ianntg the Pro. feassonals soon toned out that they were up against it and that it requir ed errorless base ball playing to head of a shut out The gamse was In tensely Iateresting and exeiting from start to finih. About one hundred people from Thlbodsan accompanied the Grey. to Doeasidnvwille Sunday. Every one reports havln speat an unusually good time. Thzhbda people were royally treated by the Donald sonvllle people sad were the red 1.1e5t5 of goo many eoertessee. We hope that it will nat be very long boeroe the D~asidmonvalle buys will give the Thibodaux Gresy a sMwer game. Thpepe - sae rathsr sanxiou to have the Doealdeonvllle Prolseslenast play esr buys en their own diamond. If the game ever takes placs'we are quite rser that it will be attended bay seven or eight hundred people as the people of this community are very eager to witness b a game between both teams. The p Grays are extremely conýlent of is taking the nest game to be played L with Donaldsonvllle. Our boys are putting up some Ut good base bell exhibitions and will D soon be r'ady to give battle to the Commercials of Hooms, the Platten ville', Websters, Smith Brothers, la Morgau City and Donaldeonvilie. Our boys have played of the home 0 diamond for several weeks and we S hope that when they return home that the Thibodaux people will give them big attendances. DI BAYOU LAFOURCHE f TO BE LOCKED. , dl Purpose of a Bill Now Before the Legislature. The advocates of locking Bayou I ltafourche at Donaldsonvillo are opts. ti mistic. Thirteen out of sixteen , members of the Atchatalayn ad an Lafo.ircbe bosids advocate the pro- p ject, and they have the determination h of the question, subject to the ap- T proval of the Legislature. Au en- - thorisation bill was intruduced yes g terday, the draft being made Tuesday ý at Baton Rouge at a joint conference . of the boards, which will be obligated , to , maintain from Donaldeonville b down a navigable fresh water cbanunel 4 of not less than six feet depth at the i shallowest point. d The `present Congress anthorised u the building of locks at Donaldson- $ ville, including the incidental temn- U porary damming of the stream, sub- b joct to ratification by the legislature. a The purpose of the bill introduced 9 yesterday was the granting of such e legislative approval of the project. At the present time, it being low water in the Missiasippi river, there is not more than eighteen inches over some of the bars. The b111 obligates a the levee boards to keep at least six feet of fresh water over the bars, t which meets one of the. objections most urged-that the damming of the head of the bayou would cause salt water to come in from the Golf through coast streams snd bays to the injury of cane, rice and live stock. One of the proposed plans of the joint boards to meet the fresh water obligatioo is to build a retaining dam at Lockport, below which there is t generally six feet or more at low water, and a pumping statbee at the Missiastppi river or at semes poaint a the bayou to supply freak water from one or more of the fresh water lakes is the Lafourchs section, providing also for drainage into the bayou, as the closure of the stream would ut terly remove the present necesstly for i high, expensive levees, which are1 i especially diacult to maintaia alop f r the Lafourobs. This plan of a re taining dam and pumping statics i includes a 6-foot lock is the retain-" r log dam, through which boats, which i now go to Lockport via Company SCanal, could enter the Lafoerche for I Donaldeonville, giving all of the La tourche constant all-water communi - cation with New Orleans. That is a i condition which does not obtain at present. There has been little opposition to the project in the two levee boards. For the nine years from 1890-1899 i it cost the two boards an average of i $112,000 a year to maintain levees I along the Lafourebe. The damming of the bsyou, the retaining dam and g lock at I'mckport sad the pumping t station would coat little more thaw aone year's maletenance of the levees, a and the asumal saving thereafter m would be almoatasa much as the coet - of the Initial work. The subasequent a locks at the head of. She bayou would a cost about *800,000. I"Assume the cost to be $1,000,000, I and that the abolishing of levees r along the Lafoorchesasved only a SI00,000 a yesr to the two levee a boards, it would still he 10 per cent s invesmeest to the taxpayers of the a two levee districts," said a planter f yesterday, "*and that locks to me like i. pretty good business propositlop. K ven If obligatione were Isuned to I pay for the locks at *1000,000, neing a outside figures, the saving of *100,000 ra year wou~d pay I per cent Interest r. sad retire the whole obiligntmo. in bmak In tweet) years, leaving In the ~.trrasurles of the two hoards the re v cumulated interest on the sinking - fund, which could of course be I.
