LUTTE TERRIBLE. La lutte que les hommes ont engagée contre le Mississippi est une lutte ter rible. Et ces hommes sont bien audacieux, bien courageux, peut-être aussi bien présomptueux. Car le Missiissppi, qui a toute la puissance et toute la force d'un éle ment, c'est-A-dire toute une force aveu gle et toute une puissance brutale, est un redoutable fleuve. A cette heure, il fait peur. Immense et large, d'une profondeui qu'on ne saurait partout sonder, cou lant A pleins bords et emportant A la mer le produit de ses innombrables et puissants tributaires, il passe audessus de la hauteur de nos têtes, sinon au dessus de nos têtes. Et nous croyons qu'il en sera désor mais ainsi tous les ans, ou A peu près. Car ses crues de chaque année, av commencement du printemps, quand le dégel se fait et que les pluies tom bent dans l'immense vallée du Missis sippi, sont une loi des saisons. Puis, les hommes audacieux, de sci ence comme de système, les ingénieur surtout, ceux qui n'admettent point qu...

LE CLAIRON. Publié tous les Samedis par la COMPAGNIE d'IMPRIMERIE et de PUBLICATION, (Limitée,) De la Paroisse St. Landry, Opélousas. Le Samedi, 4 Avril, 1891. LES JURYS ET LA JUSTICE. Depuis le drame de la Nouvelle-Or léans, si facile à expliquer sinon à jus tifier, la presse entière de la Louisiane s'occupe de justice criminelle, de lois criminelles, de peine capitale, de jurés et de jurys surtout. Car le jury, en matière criminelle, est tout, ou à peu près. Certes, la presse a raison. C'est son droit, plus que son droit, son devoir. Mais pendant combien de temps la presse s'occupera-t-elle de cette impor tante question? On sait qu'elle est volage, aimant à sauter d'un sujet à un autre. Disons même que si, d'un côté, elle n'est pas la première à prévoir les choses, elle- n'est point, d'un autre côté, la dernière à les oublier. Effleurer légèrement et passagère ment tout, sans approfondir et creuser, voilà son rôle, tout au moins le rôle qu'elle s'est donné. Quoiqu'il en soit, pour...

RETTY CLARICE is tyingher bonnet With rose -colored , ribbons, dainty and thin; There's a tuft of tangled long grasses upon it; A sunny, peach-blossomy face within. I watch her, and wonder, can it be a sin For her to smile back at the face in the glass, So fair in the shade of the tangled long grass? Thoughtless Clarice, the church-bells are ring ing, While you are standingenrapt with your face, Petting your hair and absently singing: "Christ is risen." Each curl in its place, Out she goes tripping, personified grace, And with a lingering, gratified smile Curving her lips as she walks up the aisle, "Christ is risen," the singers are chanting: Grandly the melody soars to the skies; Through the tall window the sunlight is slant ing, And as I follow the ray, in surprise Notice the splendor of Clarice's eyes, Dewy and radiant with the sublime Thoughts that are born of the place and the time. So as she stands in the glow of the morning, With her sweet spirit at peace, I confess All that ...

It was a lovely, moonlight night, Iwith my love was walking; Unmindful of fair nature's charms, We in low tones were talking. I gazed into her lovely eyes, Her curls were almost hiding. And she returned my ardent gaze With one pure and confiding. But suddenly upon her brow Care seemed to lay his finger, And dark forms gathered o'er her face Where smiles were wont to linger. The muscles roundher lovely mouth Contracted, and she, gasping, With sudden force withdrew her hand, Which I'd been gently clasping. "'What web have fate's dark votaries Arbund thy path been weaving? What sorrow," I was just to ask, "Has been thy young heart's grieving?" But sudden...

A MEASURE.OF VALES. Money Possesses Legal Attributes Which Are Not Dependent Upon Its Commodlty Value. In a recent number of Living Issues I find the following article: "It is of utmost importance in the discussion of the currency question that every one should clearly discern and discriminate between the two quite dis tinct functions of money, the one that of a measure of values, the other that of a medium of exchange. Only that which contains value can measure val ues, as only that which has weight can measure weight, and only that which has length can measure length. So, then, the unit which measures values must actually contain the value for which it stands. Hence a piece of pictured paper can never be a measure of values. But anything agreed upon can be a ticket of exchange, and the best ticket is that agreed upon by the nation through being ordained by con gress as a legal tender for debt-the greenback. A ticket of exchange is only a ticket and nothing more. It represents valu...

LE CLAIRON. Publié tous les Samedis par la COMPAGNIE d'IMPRIMERIE et de PUBLICATION, (Limitée.) De la Paroisse St. Landry, Opélousas. Le Samedi, II Avril, 1891. LES FERMIERS. On nous dit quelquefois: "Votre Alliance des Fermiers, avec son programme politique et économi que qui va très loin, trop loin peut être en plus d'un cas, ne réussira pas complètement. Et vous aurez des mécomptes." La belle histoire! Outre qu'un programme de cette importance ne se réalise point en vingt-quartre heures, nous savons que tout programme peut se modifier dans quelques unes de ses parties. Le temps-un sage-peut corriger ce qu'il a de défectueux, ou le compléter. Mais l'Alliance des Fermiers n'est pas le résultat d'un caprice ou d'une fantaisie. Ce n'est point une organisa tion de plaisir ou une société de dis traction. Elle est sortie d'une néces sité sociale, comme question sociale, et prenant le nom qu'elle porte aujourd' hui-nom juste du reste-parceque la classe des Fermiers, aux Etats-Unis, est n...

A FRAGRANT OFFERING. I walked alone among the hills, The voices in the'air Were kindlier than the thoughtless tongues Of the world's thoroughfare. I heard no ring of Mammon's bells, Thro' all the scented air, No Jargon of the tiresome crowd Assailed me anywhere. Agrander than St. Peter's dome Shone brilliant overheadl I stood alone a worshiper In the city of the dead. Alone? Another followed me, So pure she looked, and brave, And laid her fragrant offering Upon a new-made grave. 'Twas thus the Scottish poet knelt To kiss the wild flowers' bloom, I know the pathos that he felt Beside the silent tomb. To be remembered, so I thought, Is nevermore to die, In floral language thus is taught Our immortality ! Oft by the graves of those we love, Our sorrows find release, In prplous promise from ...

Sous ce titre, et bien que la Loterie de la Louisiane soit un abominable jeu et un monstrueux monopole, ce n'est pas de la Loterie de la Louisiane que nous voulons parler pour le moment. On nous accuserait de ne penser qu'à elle, de ne nous entretenir que d'elle, et de toujours sonner le même air de clairon. Ce n'est pas, bien entendu, que nous voulions la lâcher. Dieu nous en garde ! Nous nous tairons quand elle ne sera plus. Mais il faut, autant que possible, varier pour ne pas fatiguer. Et ce ne sont pas les sujets qui manquent.
