The Lafayette Advertiser, 1 March 1890



Mrs. FX Meyer, whose husband is now stationed at Liberty, Texas, arrived a few days since on a visit of a few weeks to her mother, Mrs. Beraud.

We are pleased to receive a call from our young friend Mr. Frank K. Hopkins, who has just returned from the State Business college, at Meridian, Miss., having completed his course. He is in fine health, and speaks in the highest terms of the college, its faculty, and many advantages for imparting a thorough business education.

A few days ago Mr. SJ McCartney and Mr. Louis Ouellhe, on one side, and Col. WB Lindsay and Mr. Smith Alpha on the other, had an all 'round hunting match for a dinner of pickled e--s feet. Louis and McCartney went into the match with a great deal of apprehension, but Col. Lindsay reassured the, by promising if they made too bad a score he would give them enough birds to sorter even up things, and say nothing about it. When the hunt was over, Col. Lindsay claimned that on his side of the hedge the weather was bad, and it was a poor day for shooting. Louis says that on his side of the hedge the weather was fine, and they had excellent sport. Next day Col. Lindsay and Mr. Alpha went fishing for eels. Why don't somebody tackle Parrot and Landry, champions?
