The lectures given at the Opera House last Saturday night under the auspices of the Lafourche Progressive Union, proved very interesting and highly instructive. The audience which greeted the speakers was very small, still a much larger one could hardly have been expected owing to the bad condition of our highways anti the high water situation. Presi dent W. P. Martin opened the meet ing and introduced the first speaker, Mr. Dickensheets, of New York, who enteitained his hearers, with facts sad fgures on advertising in the periodicals of the ia. me , of e.leetrnud on ygs for development olered by fIs sie tine of the country. He nompfimeut ed our town upon the progress it was making especially upon its owning its own eleetric plant and waterworks system. Mr. Story said that there was one thing that puzzled him about this town and which he was unable to solve, and that was, how could we suffer to have trade shut out from us by having a toll bridge span the bayou. His opinion concerning the bridge seemed to have been shared by the whole audience, judging from the long applause the speaker receiv ed ed upon expressing it. It might be well for the "Bridge Committee" to investigate the question of free bridge. A Prominent Xinsater Recommends Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Kemedy. Rev. Francis J* Davidson, pastor of the St. Matthew Baptist church and president of the Third District Baptist Association, 2731 Second St.. New Orleans, writes as follows: "1 have used Chamberlain's Colic, Cho lera and Diarrhoea Remedy for r cramps and pains in the stomach and found it excellent. It as in fact the best cramp and colic remedy I have ever used. Also several of 'my par ahioners have used it with equally sausfactory results." For sale by Roth Drug Store. A General Inspection.

Only 25c, at all Drug d gists. u - *. - As to Bad Roads. v - We have had bad roads in this parish " during the long rainy season and the h high water, such as no one would g like to see again. This town has I' suffered terribly from the impassable m;roads. The loss su stained by our merchants has been heavy. Now that dry and warm weather has set in, the roads are better, ythough still rough. They will soon a' be in theIr normal good condition. We must not lose sight of the 0 question of good roads, however, but ,,keep it constantly before us unotil we get our roads throughout the parish n in thorough repair and peafectly a dra.ned. There is a maxim in vogue Iamong Europoea statesmen by which dgoveraamemts Are advised "In tame of pesce, prepare for war.' We woeld it psrsphrass lt, "IoU.l. of the long dry weather of the summer, prepare - the roads for the long wet spell of a the winter." 0 A DemonstratIon of What Chamber. (.lain's Cobe, Cholera and Diar. L.. rhoen Remedy Can Do. "One of our customerd, a highly tf respected citizen of this pasce, had been for ten years a sufferer from chronic duarthoes," writes Walden & Martin, druggists, of Enterprise, Ala. S"He had used various pateat piepara. tions and been treated by physicians without any perminent benefit A t ew months ago he commeuucud taking Chamderlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and in a short time was entirely cured. Many citizens of Enterprise who know the gentleman Y will testify to the truthfulness of this *' statement." For sale by Roth Drug d1 Store. To-morrow's Game.

Looking for Louisiana Lands -Truck Farming and Canning Factories. 0 In an interview given to the Pica - yone last Sunday, Mr. Charles K. Fuqua, State Immigration Agent, gave out the following interesting in. formation: a "We are getting many inquiries in at r.'gard to land and prospective colo. L nMats," Mr. Fugua said. *'There are - especially a great mowy inquiries h about timber lands. The latter come dI principally from the E:ist and North, t while most of the an*quiries about o cniooisatlon are from the MidMIe me WOst.

Next to this is land K for track farming. There are also , many inquiries for rice lands." g ý Joseph Boudreaux. d - The last issue of the Houma Cou rier contained the following notice of the death of a well kiowu former resident of this town: ' Mr. Joseph Boudresux, an old and popular citizen of this I ariah, died this week at his home on Little Caillou. Mr. Boudreaux was a brother of the late Alfred Boudressx, of lower Terreboune. DIveased at te mels a home on Uppeir Terrarboone, hut four or dve years ago he sold his place and moved to Little Uaillou. A year or so ago he lost his wife, to whom he was devoted, and this sorrow sank deep into his life. Whenever he visited Houma, Mr. Bondreaux male it a point to call at The Courier office and have a friendly chat with the editor. His occasional visits will be missed at this sane tum." The deceased in years past was a merchant of this town. He was a kind hearted man, noted for has cheerfulness and perennial good humor. His hearty disposition was good for the blues. He left here several years ago to live on a farm in Terrebonne some six miles from this town. His old friends here will hear with regret of the death of "grus" Joe Boudresux, as he was generally called to designate him from another Joe B~ondrraux, livIng in town.

The Mansfield Journal a ~e strong Democratic organ of the fourth congressional dias-. if trict, speaking of the Blain ychard boom for governor, says: "The impression prevails e and Is gaining ground that t. Judge Blanchard has his eye d on a meat In the Ugted States es Senate and that he wishes to a use the gubernatorial patron a age to have himself elected to) it the Senate. It this be true. nand it has not been denied, much will depend upon the lieutenant governor, as his will be the governor by pro. motion in the event Judge -Blanchard is elected governor. a Who will be Blanchiard's rim ning matel Speaker Sataders, of F~ranklin, is most favorably a mentioned in this connection. an We have no objection to Judge Blanchard going to tlhe ~r Senate.
