THE CLARION OPELOUSAS, JUNE 27, 1896 K-, DON'T DO IT! Don't send away from home for your printing. You can have it done as well and as cheap at BODEMULLER, THE PRINTER'S. Graduating Exerclwen. The Second Annual Commence. ment of the St. Landry High 3chool came off on Friday night, June 19, with flattering success, and a more convincing demonstra tion of its flourishing condition could not have been desired. To the opening march the facul ty, followed by the directors and graduates, filed upon the' stage. The term "sweet graduates" cer tainly could have been aptly ap plied to the four young ladies who sat in full view of the audience, bedecked in white and looking beautiful, their intelligent faces beaming with anticipation and happiness. Prof. Shaffer, the principal of the High School, in a graceful and cor dial manner welcomed the visitors to the exercises, and at the same time briefly reviewed the history of the school. Iie said that its growth and development and pres ent standin...

QU!CKER THAN LIGHTNING. The Action of the Old-Fashioned human Body Outstrips Everything E;ls. "A qick, as lightning" is a phrase col 4oquially uwed to express the maximum (;f rapidity. Bult according to a well knovon scient ist electricity itself is out stripped by tha t old-fashioned machine, the huiman body, by which it appears powers can, so to speak, be generated in the brain, transmitted through the nerves and developed in the muscles in an infinitesimnal fraction of a second. It is stated that a pianist, in playing a presto of Mendelssohn, played 5,595 notes in four minutes and three seconds. The striking of each of these, it has been estimated, involved two move mnents of the finger and possibly more. Again, the movsneernt of the wrist, elbows ain arms can scarcely be less than one movement for each note. As 24 notes were played each second, and each involves threo movements, we would have 72 voluntary movements per second. Again, the place, the force, the time and the d urat...

THE HISTORY OF PINS. Dates I..ck to the Earliest Records Made by Stan. Pins are, as the saying goes, as old as the hills. In some form or another they have been in existence ever since out first parents clothed themselves in fig leaves which grew wild in the garden at Eden. As a matter of fact, pins claim at very high antiquity, the earliest form Ibeing the natural thorn, which is still used to some extent by the peasant u omen of upper Egypt. In prehistoric limes pins were also made of the small bones of fish and animals. Among the remains of the lake dwell ers of Europe have been found bronze pins and bronze brooches, in which the pins form the prominent feature, man. of which are highly ornamented and cery b.lutiful. A few copper and one iron pin have also been found. It is estimated that 10,000 pins have been col lected at the lacustrine station of Switz erla.nd alone. A few of these pins have double stems and were probably used as hairpins. Three have been found at I'ischiiere,...

ANOTHER BICYCLE DEFORMITY. Ugly Hands Threaten the Women Who Indulge in Wheel Exercise. "Beware of the bicycle hand!" warns a writer. '"The bicycle hand, milady, is a thing of ugliness and horror for. ever. It comes from clutching the handles of the bicycle in such a man ner that the fingers are twined around them In a deathlike grip and then bringing the full weight of the upper part of the body to bear upon them. Under this steady pressure the hand be. comes flattened, bulges out at the sides, .gets lumpy and out of shape and the fingers all become crooked. Of course, it doesn't happen in a day, and, for that matter, it has not been known to exist until quite recently. But a year will tell, and these cases that have come under the observation of the writer are the result of just one year's hard riding. It begins by a bulging out of the muscle on the side of the hand. This grows more and more prominent and gets tougher and tougher, until it is as hard as a piece of wood. Then the m...

His interpretation of the law does not concern us-the Supreme Court has already spoken on that point, and that tribunal's decisidn will doubtless have more force in moulding public opinion than the Judge's rhetoric.

LAMPS ARE VERY ANCIENT. Some Facts in Their History Which Are Oddn and Interesting. 'To the E:}yptians has been given the [honor of inventing the lamp, but it Iseems more.: ban probable I hat they re ceived it from the older civilization of !ndia. The lamps origin:ally used by ,the Ilebre:ws, the Egypt;ans and the tGreeks were simply flat vessels with a pmall handle at one end, and at the side a salil projection with a hole, forming a nozzle. In th , back was a larger open:reg into which the oil was poured. The oil used was generally veg etable, but according to Pliny it was s:ometinim of liquid hitumen. The lamp commonly used in Egypt at the pres,,at time is a small glass ves sel, with aI t he in the bot tom, in which is placed a wick of co:.ton twisted around a st:-aw.
