Carencro Parochial Schools Examination, Jan. 24, 1894

The boys of St. Peter's Academy, under the guidance of Prof. C. F. Latiolais, proved worthy of their school. Masters Clarence Bernard, Ernest Coussau and Viateur Grenier, proved very efficient in U.S. History, Geography, grammar, arithmetic and definitions. Masters Camille Couvillion, Ulysse Lacour and David Martin, could not be embarrassed either in reading or spelling, definintions or geography. Among the lower classes (which we could not attempt to give a prolonged account) we may, without prejudice, highly compliment Masters Hubert Dupuis, Leonce and Andre Prejean, whose accuracy and promptness in answering could not help being noticed by the audience. The girls, under the management of Miss Melchior, were quick, intelligible and accurate both in the answers and recitations. Among them we may cite Misses Sarah Brown, Euchariste Mathieu and Lizzie Dimitry as having taken the honors of the school. Miss Brown's recitation of "Somebody's Darling Slumbers Here," could not have been better, and in her recitation of "Le Trois Jours de Christophe Colomb," she carried the audience. Every class was thoroughly examined and all were very successful.
