The editor had the pleasure of sttending a meeting of the Lafourche Democratic mother club at Cut Off; last Sunday. The meeting, which as the second of the organization, was) held in the Cut Off school house and was well attended. Besides the regu lar business there were speeches made by the following gentlemen who had b: been invited to address the club:1 Judge L. P. Caillouet, Messrs. J. A. 0. Coignet and F. L. Knobloch. The speakers devoted themselves to ex pounding principles of Democracy sad to setting forth the advantages to be derived from organization. Tit.

The Lafourcbe Democratic mother club was organazed at Lockport in the early part of April, and Is a growing institution; about 25 or 30 new mem bers were enrolled at last Sunday's meeting.

The Southern Sentinel takes excep. tion to our assertion in a reenut issue,: that "Blanch:u ; stan'is absolutsly no show aitho';t the stupport anhI in fluence of 6cunat'r I cster. lie is a of the most unpopular men that could have been selected." It characterizes the assertion as "vituperation and! abuse of the candidate." The Sentinel is informed, in all sin cerity, thit The Felicianas does not approve of or indulge in "vitupera I tion or abuse" of any one. It does not regard such methods as dignified I or becoming either gentlemen or jour nalism. With all due respect to both I the public and private character of I Justice Blanchard, and the exalted i position he occupies.

A recent telegram frwm Philadel phia says: Instructions positively forbidding the use of cigarettes by those em pIoved in the passenger service of the New York Divisiqon of the Read ing Railroad have been issued by Mr. Fulimore, passenger trainmaster. Dismissal from the employ of the road is the I'enalt3 for failure to obey the mandate. "gMen who smoke cigarettes are apt to have lapses of memory aol i. is not safe to trust the live of passen gers in (he hands of persons who have that failng." The Instruetions wot only forbid the use of cigarettes by the me. while on duty, but also when they are off duty. Odicers of the road say that the company has always refused to em ploy men known to be cigarette smokers. The day is coming, and may it he speeded, when cigarette smoking will be a bar to any first class position. There is no habit more offensive, or more destructive of mind and morals than the baneful one of cigarette smok ing and it Is the distlact.ve duty of everyone to discourage it in every possible way. -Vicksburg American.

The Jews were taken totally unaware, and were slaughtered like sheep. The dead number 120, and the injured about 500. The scenes of horror attending this massacre are hevond description. Babes were literally torn to pieces by the frencied and bloodthirsty mob. The local police made no attempt to check the reign of terror. At sunset the streat were piled with corpses and wounded. Those who could make their escape Bed in terror and the city is now practically deserted of Jews. "Just its in the riots of 1880 1881, there is a popular belief among the Russian pes5aiits that the Czar de creed the slaughtering of the Jews.
