THE CHROINICLE. COLFAX, - * LOUSIA::A1 THE OLD ATTIC ROOM. _ I remember the dear old attic rom, Where I slept when a little boy. In the farln-house over beside the hill, When life was a perfect Joy I remember the chairs so oldand quaint, And the bed whlereot I slept. And the chest of drawers beside the door, Where the apples were always kept. I1 remember well how the early sun' SThrough the window small would stray, And how the bird in the tree outside Would warble his morning lay. And how my mother's "Time to get up:" On my heedless ear would fall, And the unpretentious print that hung So crookedly on the wall. I remember the ceiling, cracked and low, Where bunches of peppers hung, And the old green curtain that wouldn't roll But in every wild breeze swung. I remember the barrels with stove-pipes illed. And various other things, And the memory of this dear old room Remembrances also brings. Of the nights I had of Innocent rest: What wouldn't I give to be Again, in the rosy, boyhood...

EXCITEMENT IN ROCHESTER. Widespread Cermoe Caused by that Remarkable statement aoe PI'rsietsa. The story published in these columns re esntly, from the Rochester, N. Y., Demo crat, created a deal of comment here as it has elsewhere. Apparently it caused even more commotion in Rochester, as the fol towing from the same paper shows: Dr. J. B. Healon. who is well-known not only In Roeste~~r but in nearly every part O Amerla, sent an extended article to hipa~pr, da few days ago which was duly ub Ferd, detailing his remarkable ex f or ence and rescue from what seemed to e certain death. It would be impossible to enumerate the personal inquiries which have been Ma .r olffi. to the va lidity of the at cle, blhey have been so numerous that further investigation of the subject was deemed an editorial necessity. With this end in view a representative of this paper called on Dr. Henion at his residence on Andrews street, when the fol lowing interview occurred: "That article of yours, Doctor, h...

THE CHRONICLE. ('OLFAX. - A)UISIANA. "A TRAGEDY." With a Moral. This is a poem on Spring. so fair. Of warbling birds and balmy air. Of cooling breezes, babbling brooks, Of beauty love and cozy nooks. This is the "fiend" with straggling hair, Cheek monumental and courage rare; Who wrote the "pome on Spring, so fair," i Of whispering breezes, balmy air, Lowing herds and gurgilng brooas; The same we read about in books. This is the "Editor" filled with care, Hungry for more substantial fare Than poems on Spring-his back most bare Through need of better clothes to wear, s Who seized the "fiend" with lengthy hair That wrote the poem on Spring, so fair, Nor stopped to question why or where, But hurled him headlong down the stair. MORAL. d Poets! take warning from this rhyme, And If you wish to save much time And trouble, keep your poems all, h And when the evening shadows fall Just build a fire in the stove, Then take your poems on Spring, and love, And burn them all-don't spare one line-...

THE CHIRONICLE. COLFAX. - LOUISIANA. THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND ME. The girl I left behind me Was pretty and all that: Bright golden ringlets glistened Beneath her airy hat. She had a dainty figure. Her hands were small and white, Her mouth was like a rose-bud. Her eyes were warm and bright. Her way was light and graceful She was a roguish elf A sweet bewitching fairy, And well supplied with pelf. She sang like any wild bird. She danced with wondrous art, And looked just like an angel In her red village-cart.
