THE CHRONICLE. COLFAX, - - LOUISIANA. BPEAK WELL OF EACH OTHER. Things of greatest moment often Start from trifes Uht as air, And thus many guiltless beings Have been hunted to despair By the venomed voice of gossip, which throws poison everywhere. Sometimes in our own home cirole Words are spoken thoughtlessly, Pointing with a shade of reason Toward a friend's mntegrity. Those few words may gather others till ascan dal vest we see. Sometimes, too, vague hints may waken Doubts and fears within the soul; Hints oonoeerning trivial actions Deep suspicions may unroll, Plunging some loved ones in trouble which no effort can control. Yet she may be pore and guleless, Free from very thought of ili; But that hint so Idly koen Grafts its deadly poison stW Such light words of gousip started can with grief a young life fill Every one is prone to falter, Clouds on every heart may fall; Some grope onward, led by Folly, Some respond to Duty's call: Our friend's case we cannot fathom, so should ne...

TIHE CHRONICLE. COLFAX, - - - LOUISIANA. THE LIGHT OF STARS. The night is come, but not too soon; And sinking silently, All silently, the little moon Drops down behind the sky. There Is no light in earth or heaven But the cold light of stars: And the first watch of night is given To the red planet Mars. Is It the tender star of love? The star of love and dreams? 0, no! from that blue tent above A hero's armor gleams. And earnest thoughts within me rise, When I behold afar, Suspended In the evening skies, The shield of that red star. O star of strength! I see the stand And smile upon mp pain; Then beckonest with thy mailed hand. And l am strong again. Within my breast there is no light But the cold light of stars; 1 give the first watch of the night To the red planet Mars. The star of the unconquered will, He rises in my breast, Serene, and resolute, and still And calm, and self-possesses. And thou, too, whoso'or thou art, That readest this brief psalm, As one by one thy hopes depart...
