BACHELORS MUST MARRY OR PAY TAX. 





 We have been informed that a bill will be introduced in the next Legislature and probably adopted' which will be directed against "ungained" bachelors over the age of thirty years. 

 It is said that the celibacy of man is always of his own volition while that of a woman, in the greatest number of cases is altogether involuntary. 

 The bill proposes to levy an annual tax of $50 on bachelors of a certain age to counterbalance the expenses of a household of the inconveniences of a short tempered mother-in-law. 

 Whether this will prove gratifying news to marriageable girls, we do not know but the fact remains that the bill will be pushed through with the result that either the revenues of the State will be considerably increased or more marriages will take place.

 We feel sure that the author of this proposed law is destined to become the most popular man in the whole State of Louisiana.

 Broussard-Applegate.
Quite a romance is attached to the wedding of Representative Robert F. Broussard to Miss Manette Applegate, which took place at the New Iberia Catholic church, last Wednesday. During his early struggles as a lawyer, he was appointed the guardian of a young lady, an orphan. She was not wealthy and Broussard took it upon himself to educate her. He found her an apt pupil, and while he was working to make a name for himself she encouraged him. A strong friendship resulted, which, as time rolled by terminated in the church at the altar.

 New Iberia, proud of her son, turned out in full force to be present at his wedding, and the church was over-filled with people. A serenade was given bride and groom before their departure for Washington.

The interior of the Synagogue was most tastefully decorated with evergreen designs and natural flowers. The canopy under which the bridal party stood was catwined with evergreen ropes, and was roofed as it were, with an immense bell of white and pink camelias to which was attached four streamers of pink and white moire ribbons held by four flower girls - little Misses Ella Plonskym of Washington, Emma Falk, Gussie Plonsky of Lafayette, and Wilhelm Schmulen of Carencro, all tastefully dressed in white silk, flowers and illusion, and from time to time during the ceremony flowers would fall upon the young couple, emblematical, we hope, that their path through life will be a pleasant one.

The bodice was richly trimmed with hyacinths and orange blossoms; the veil was of white illusion caught by a small spray of orange blossoms and enveloped her whole figure.

The wedding march was executed in brilliant style by Prof. Boyer. The admonition of Rev. Mr. Saff to the young couple, after the ceremony, was eloquent and contained word of wisdom which no doubt, not only they but all who heard them will lay well to heart.

After the ceremony the invited guests and relatives proceeded to the residence of the bride's parents, where a bounteous and elegant repast was served. The guests hailed from all quarters of the State and did full justice to the many good things prepared for their delectation.

Quite a number of telegrams were received from absent friends felicitating the young couple on the consummation of their hopes, which were read by Isaac Bendel, brother to the bride.

After supper the company dispersed until 8 p. m., when it again reassembled in Falk's hall to attend the reception given by the newly wedded couple. After congratulations had been tendered the young people indulged in the mazy dance until a late hour, to sweet music charmingly executed by Professors Boyer and Tapissier.

This announcement will doubtless be a surprise to the many friends of the young lady. Miss Gifford is the only daughter of Capt. H. N. Gifford, general manager of the O. V. Telephone Company, and since she made her debut in society several seasons ago, she has had a brilliant social career. She was one of the maids of honor at the Satellite's ball two years ago, and her petite, brunette beauty and vivacity drew around her scores of admirers. She is highly cultivated and possesses graces of mind and heart which endear her to a large circle. Mr. Clegg belongs to one of the fine old Creole families of Lafayette, La., and is a nephew of Judge John Clegg, of New Orleans. He is now interested in large mining interests out in Denver, Col., whither he moved about five years ago. Miss Gifford and Mr. Clegg met some years ago while sojourning in Asheville, N.

 On Last Thursday evening there took place in the parlors of the Crescent News Hotel one of the prettiest weddings that Lafayette has never known. The contracting parties were Mr. Nathan Abramson, and Miss Ula Corrona, the charming and winsome daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. N. Corrona. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the large bay window had been transformed into a fairy bower by the use of evergreens and ferns. Garlands were gracefully festooned from the walls, and a wedding bell green and white, studded with electric bulbs, was suspended just above the improvised altar Green and white ribbons were stretched across the room forming a semi-circle, within which stood the relatives of the young couple. To the strains of Mendelsohn's wedding march, played by Prof. Sontag and Mr. Stevens, the bridal party entered, led by the ushers, Messrs. Ben Schmalinski, S. J. Leblanc and A. M. Clark. Dr. Lewis Abramson, of Shreveport, was best man. The groom was accompanied by his mother. Walking alone, preceding the bride, was Mrs. Lewis Abramson as matron of honor, who was very handsome in a gown of white embroidered crepe-de-chine. With stately dignity came the bride, a perfect dream of loveliness as she leaned on the arm of the father, and queenly grace, took her place by the side of her betrothed, into whose keeping she gave her happiness. As the last strains of the wedding march died away the eloquent words of Rabbi Max Heller were heard, and the sweet simplicity of the Jewish ceremony, was impressively spoken. After his final blessing rested upon them, they turned for the congratulations of their friends. Many from a distance mingled their good wishes, with the friends from this, their adopted town. A dainty course supper was served on the broad galleries, which had been screened in for the purpose. The color scheme, green and white, was carried out in the most minute detail. The bride's table was exquisite in its daintiness. The center piece of white carnations and ferns, the silver candelabra with white rose shades, the green and white ribbons, hanging from the chandelier, all contributed to form a lovely picture, which will long linger in the memory of those present.

 The bride was handsomely gowned in white organdy over white taffeta silk, and carried a shower bouquet of bride roses, carnations and ferns. The long graceful veil was pinned to her hair by a spray of orange blossoms and only half concealed the sweet face beneath. She is possessed of a most charming personality which has endeared her to her numerous friends, who sought to show a little of their appreciation by the handsome presents that were showered upon her.

 Her going away gown was a becoming creation of navy blue eta mine, with trimmings of Persian embroidery and taffeta, with a becoming suit hat.

 Mr. and Mrs. Abramson left the same night to be absent two weeks or more, after which they will be "at home" with their friends in Lafayette.

Wedding Bells. 
 Bonnet-Cornay.  
 Mr. Arthur Bonnet and Miss Amelie Cornay were united in marriage at St. John's catholic church, last Wednesday evening.

 In spite of the inclemency of the weather a large number of friends and acquaintances were present to witness the simple but solemn ceremony that merged two happy young lives into an only one, and many were the good wishes showered on the young couple.

 The bride was attired in a plain but pretty costume of white and (unreadable word), with grace, a beautiful bunch of orange blossoms as a hair ornament. The groom looked his best, and with their attendants, Mr. Chas. T. Bienvenue and Miss Bessie Cornay, (a sister of the bride), it was a happily impressive little wedding party that appeared before the eyes of admiring friends and acquaintances.

 The great popularity of the contracting parties was well attested to by the innumerable presents received by the bride, souvenirs of much value and attractiveness.

 After the public ceremony there was a congregation of relatives and a few intimate friends at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. A. Cornay, and, until a late hour was an unrestrained flow of pleasant and good spirit.

IN HOLY BONDS.
Wedding of Miss Hellen Gifford and Mr. Wm. Clegg, Jr.

 Miss Helen Eugenia Gifford and Mr. William Clegg were united in marriage last evening at 6:30 o'clock at Christ Episcopal church. There were no elaborate decorations, there was no display, yet the wedding is now numbered among the brilliant ones of the season. The attendance at the church was very large, so large, in fact, that there would not have been room for many more.

 The service was a departure from anything that has been seen in this city, being conducted with the full Anglican ritual. The ushers were proceeded in the march to the altar by thirty-five surpliced choir boys, who formed a group about the bridal pair during the ceremony. The bride held the arm of her father as she went to the altar, and she carried a white prayer book, which she handed to the rector to read the service from. The groom and his best man, Mr. Gustave Breaux, received the bride and her father at the altar. She wore a Greek bridal gown of crystal silk, trimmed in lace, with high neck and long train.

 The ceremony was conducted by the Rev. Charles E. Craik, rector of the Christ church. The process on from the church was reversed, the ushers and them the choir boys following the bridal pair.

 There were no attendants, and so far as possible the entire affair was made simple. The ushers were Messrs. Herbert Seeman, Thornton Goodloe, Edward Bonnie, Frank Hogan, Morris Gifford and Benjamin Huline.

 A reception for the relatives of the bride and groom and a few friends, including the ushers and best man, was given after the church ceremony, at the Gifford residence, 1118 Second street. It was a purely informal affair. Mr. and Mrs. Clegg left on the early evening train for Chicago. They will visit the World's Fair and will then go to Denver, Col., where they will live. She wore a blue traveling gown to Chicago.

 The bride is the only daughter of Mr. H. N. Gifford, manager of the Ohio Valley Telephone Company. She is a small brunette, with a vivaciousness that made her extremely attractive. For a number of years she had been a popular member of society. Mr. Clegg has for a number of years been a resident of Denver. His native home is Lafayette, La., where his father still lives. The young man is a nephew of the Circuit Judge of New Orleans.

 Many handsome presents were received by the bride. Her parents presented her with a chest of silver, and number of pieces of silver were also received from the parents of Mr. Clegg. The ushers presented to her a cabin lamp, and other valuable gifts were received from relatives and friends.
