One historian reports that by 1891 there were 108-Policy Shops" selling tickets in New Orleans alone Stamps on Cook's tickets show his great-great-grandfather obtained one from a shop in New Orleans and the other two from an agent in Covington, Kentucky. Jas. H. Wilson, The drawing itself was quite a specta- cle. At first the winning tickets were drawn in New Orleans theatres before the lottery was moved to the since  demolished Lottery Home, a site now occupied by the main office of the Bank of Louisiana at 321 St. Charles In yet another attempt to put the lottery beyond suspicion or reproach, the actual drawing of the winners was performed by two blind boys brought over from the local asylum for the blind. In addition to the grand prizes totalling $2.500 to $3,000, there were 3.434 smaller prizes drawn, so that the lottery took several hours and drew capacity crowds. The 100,000 lottery tickets which went into each drawing were rolled inside of one inch tong rubber tubes so that their numbers could not be read until they were taken out of the tubes. The lottery made millionaires out of its owners and wou}d doubtless have had its charter renewed for another quarter of a century in 1894 when the orioinal one expired, were it not for the arthrtBar relieves the major Knue of pain T1enol can't touch.

The wonder d.na,.g that works wonders:" OW BmnJoma Odaw laphney J actions of President Benjamin Harrison and the U,S. Congress. - In September 1890 Congress passed a law making it a criminal offense to use the federal postal system for mailing lottery material, a law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court two years later. The law doomed the Louisiana Lottery which depended on nationwide sales. An earlier brush with state-sponsored gambling dates to 1810 when the legis- lature voted to allow churches to conduct $10,000 lotteries for religious purposes. Subsequent lotteries were held in Louisiana to improve navigation, build schools, build a Masonic hall in New Orleans, and for other noteworthy causes. But the legislature in 18,50 banned these lotteries and did not sanction another one until the recon- struction Legislature approved the Louisiana Lottery following the Civil War. The lessons of history have apparently not been lost on the ,_drrent governor. who heavily loaded his proposal for a lottery with stipulations mandating that large amounts of the profit be turned over to the state and forbidding those on public assistance or those owing child support from collection on any winnings. Edwards has asked the current legis- lature to meet in the upcoming special session for the purpose of voting on the question of whether or not the state's voters should decide the lottery question at the polls. Edwards has also requested the legislature to pass laws allowing casino gambling in the New Orleans area and in other municipalities on the state's southern coast. .Locally. Rep. Dennis Hebert has asked constituents to inform him of their feelings rearding the EdwaTd$ gambling proposals (see related story).

Staff Report A small electrical fire in the circuit breaker box at Ponchatoula Branch Library put readers in the dark for a day and a half last week.
