Valentine's Day.
Next Tuesday will be the 14th, -- a day which many no doubt regard as one of the most important of the year. Those blessed or afflicted, as the case may be, with the "tender passion" will have carte blanche to uncork their pent up feelings and under the patronage of St. Valentine, pour out ad libitum genuine streams of the unadulterated article which, perhaps, a native modesty would otherwise forever keep to itself. Messrs. Revillon and Nelson are provided each, with a select assortment of 'Valentines,' sentimental, comic and satirical, among are found designs that are really attractive, if not artistic, with appropriate verses attached, -- and we are sure many will be drawn either by cupid-ity, or cu-riosity at least, to call and see them. Lafayette Advertiser 2/11/1882.




 t. Valentine's day has come and gone and with its advent no doubt joy was occasioned to many, as also anger to not a few, if this year was no exception the rule. We know two persons, at least, who are very glad the event is now relegated to the past, and those are postmasters Demanade and Simpson.
 Laf. Adv. 2/17/1894.




The Social Event of Valentine's Week.
 

 The social event of valentine week was the entertainment of the Ladies' Five O'clock Tea Club by Mrs. A. Denbo, whose charming personality lent additional pleasure to the meeting. In the unavoidable absence of the president and vice-president, Miss Gladu ably presided. Arrangements for an anniversary supper was discussed, but final developments postponed until a called meeting which will take place this Saturday afternoon, at the residence of the Misses Trahan. A recitation by Miss Lizzie Mudd, vocal solo with guitar accompaniment by Miss Susie Hopkins, readings by Misses Trahan and Mudd were enjoyed. After the serving of choice cakes and a delicious ice, followed a Valentine party, a unique and appropriate diversion. The first prize, a dainty powder-box, was won by Miss Lizzie Mudd, the booby, a surprise-box, was awarded Miss Adele Young.
