St. Charles Parish--1883

St. Charles Herald, 30 June 1883

S. Lozano, dealer in sewing machines, agent for improved Singer sewing machines, office in Hahnville.
Hahnville Stationery Store, at the post office, opposite Creole Store, a full line of writing paper, pens, ink, envelopes, lead pencils, legal cap, foolscap, notions, we sell at New Orleans prices.

For Sale-- An A No. 1 Aultman and Taylor thresher, capable of threshing 20 sacks a day. Apply A. Madere at Creole Store, Hahnville.

The river is falling.

No public schools in St. John Parish this year. In St. James and St. Charles the public schools will close at the end of this month.

We have received from the plantation of Andre Triche, Esq. of St. John, a stalk of sugar cane containing four red joints.

The courthouse road is getting worse every day. Cannot the police jury appropriate a few dollars and have the same repaired.

The fair in St. John was a success. It will net about $4000, half for Charity Hospital and the other to the Catholic Church of Father Badail, one of the best priests in Louisiana. Much of the success is due to Dr. Howards who planned the whole of the fair.

The police of St. James ordered all records in the clerk's office from 1809 to 1880 to be bound in volumes. This is a good example for our police jury to follow.
