THE HARBOR LIGHT. How welcome o'er the sea that night The twinkle of the harbor light; A star that trembles on the foam With beams of love and dreams of home. The bells ring o'er the tossing bars The white sails dipped beneath the stars; But fairer than all stars or night The harbor light-the harbor light! 0. sallors singing in the spars A merrt challenge to the stars! Sctatl. at whose glad command Ou brave ship leans toward the land! Within far vie--clad cots of white pove, .bears the sea-bells in the night: !Swift as a seagull's be our Sight Toward the light, the harbor light!" And swift we sped from storm and gloom To smiling shores of light and bloom; Tbe oruow of the voyage past Sang In the joy of Home at last! Homel where the ships in shelter rest; Home! where the light-the love is best: Over the Munglng seas of night Love's blessing in the harbor light! O ships that in the darkness roam, Sweet sing the harbor bells of Home; Though far the shore-the voyage long. ,The dark will...

Muabcription: $1 Per Year. e stered at the Post-Ofce at Opelousas, La., as second class matter. LOOKS LIKE WAR. War between our country and Spain is considered certain. The diplomatic resources of both coun tries have been exhausted, and a clash of arms can only be averted by a complete backdown on the part of Spain, which is not proba ble. The House of Representatives Wednesday by a vote of 324 to 19 passed a resolution which', is prac tically a declaration of war. It directs President McKinley to in tervene at once to stop the war in Cuba, with a view to the establish ment by the Cubans themselves of a stable and independent govern ment in the island; and authorizes the President to use the land and naval forces of the United States to carry out these instructions. The Senate has under considera tion an almost similar resolution, which has doubtless been adopte...

Eatered at the Post-OQIce at Opelousas, La., as second cass matter. IT IS WAR! The long talked-of war is upon us. The murder of 266 American citizens in the harbor of Havana will be avenged; the butchering of helpless women and children in the unhappy island of Cuba will be stopped; Spain, the most barbar ous and treacherous nation on the face of the earth, will be driven from the Western Hemesphere. War is a serious matter. No matter how short the struggle may be, it will make many vacant seats at the fireside; it will make many heart-broken widows and breadless orphans. But the United States was justified in engaging in this war; she owed it to God and hu manity; she owed it to her bragy soldiers that were hurled into eter nity for no other reason than Mtat they were Americans.
