REV. E. BADOIL DEAD
Pastor of St Peter's Church at Reserve Succumbs to Brief Illness.
Reserve, La. Sept. 14.-At noon to-day Rev. E. Badoil breathed his last. The beloved Pastor of St. Peter's Church died after a short illness of about six days. Father Badoil was about 62 years of age. The funeral will take place Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 9 a.m.
News reached the city yesterday of the death of Rev. E. Badoil, for over twenty-five years Rector of St. Peter's Catholic Church at Reserve, St John's Parish. Father Badoil was a native of Lyons, France, and next Friday would have celebrated the thirty-ninth anniversary of his priesthood. Father Badoil was over 60 years of age. Immediately after his ordination he was assigned to the Catholic Church at Calcasieu. In the yellow fever epidemic of 1870 he, with a young priest who was his companion, took the fever. His companion died from the dread disease, but Father Badoil recovered and was assigned to Burras Settlement, at the Jetties. After a short time his zeal led him to return to the work in Calcasieu at that time one of the hardest parishes in the diocese, and one that few priests felt brave enough to undertake. Calcasieu at that time embraced a region that is now divided into nine different parishes. The work was difficult in the extreme, but he performed it faithfully and well. The funeral will take place on Wednesday morning, and the funeral services will be held immediately after the arrival of the morning train. It is expected that many priests from the city will attend the funeral.
