LE CLAIRON. Publié tous les Samedis par la COMPAGNIE d'IMPRIMERIE et de PUBLICATION, (Limitée,) De la Paroisse St. Landry, Opélousas. Le Samedi, 24 Octobre 1891. DEMOCRATES, PENSONS A L'A VENIR. Il faudrait être inintelligent, de mau vaise foi ou ingrat pour ne pas recon naître et proclamer que c'est le parti démocrate, aujourd'hui au pouvoir, qui a tiré la Louisiane du bourbier de ra dicalisme et d'opprobre dans lequel elle se trouvait. Et si l'on appelle le parti démocrate un sauveur, on n'a pas tort. Aussi, croyons-nous que le peuple louisianais, généreux certainement, lui doit* de la reconnaissance. Et nous croyons également qu'il faut continuer notre allégeance et notre dévouement à ce parti, et à cause de ses principes, et à tause des services qu'il a rendus, et à cause des services qu'il rendra en core. C'est un parti vraiment nation al. Demain, à l'élection présidentielle, il livrera une grande bataille dans la quelle la Louisiane, certes, fera vaillam ment son devoir. II se...

speaking of places where the regular tickets alone are 'sold. There are hun dreds more of them. I am speaking of those places where you can go in and play 4-11-44. Of these there are 10. Do you people know how many there are in the eighth and ninth wards? Do you know how many there are among you? Over twenty in the seventh, eighth and ninth wards. (A voice, "And they are well pa tronized.") I am going to talk about their patronage directly. M1y friends, I do not know, and no man knows except the lottery people, and they won't tell, how much money they make out of this policy game. I was informed by a lottery stockholder, at a time not sus picious, before this question arose a year or two ago, that the average receipts of these policy shops were $60 a day. Now, 108 shops at $60 a day makes over $6400 a day, or over $2,000,000 a year. Now, where does the money comes from? Don't you know where that money comes from? Can not every man within the sound of my voice turn around the corner ...

TO CATCH THE UNWARY. Pomona, CaL, Progress. Here is a sample of the way the Louisiena State Lottery Company ad vertises its great prizes to catch the fools all over the country. We have seen a copy of the Minneapolis Tri bune, and also of the Memphis (Tenn.) Appeal during the past week, and both papers contain the same advertisement in the columns of news about a certain Wolfe P. Harriman, of Pomona, Cal., who had won $3500 in one of the recent drawings of the lottery. The advertisement, written in the usual catching style, goes on to tell how "Mr. Merriman" is a hard-working clerk in a Pomona grocery store; how he has supported his widowed mother for years; how he put only $1 in the lottery and g'rew $3500. Then the article winds.up with a brief account of how "Wolfe" intends to spend the suddenly, made fortune .in buying a little home for his mother, and tells about how happy the mother and son are, and especially how they praise the great, good and noble Louisiana lot tery.

She is such a prudent matron-is this shy, sweet toe of mine, Ske will say, with orbs uplifted, in a manner most divine, That she never in her girlhood went to ride with men-oh, no t Then she'll take a drive by moonlight with my very nicest beau. She will wonder, too, you haven't grown quite weary of gay life, "Because at your are," (sweetly) "I had been some years a wife." Oh, it takes just such a woman to think of the meanest things How I hate this little widow who outwits me at the springs I She has such sweet ways of giving all one's men friends good advice, About the sort of woman who's particularly nice; Not a giddy, silly creature, but a woman who's been tried By the deepest cares and sorrows, and who now would put aside All the vanities and follies, and would know the way ...

Nous ne voulons certainement point, ni en politique ni en économie politi que, opposer les villes aux campagnes ou les campagnes aux villes, et nous préférons dire que les unes et les autres sont utiles. Dieu sait cependant qu'au point de vue de la production première et indis pensable, au point de vue de l'alimen tation humaine, la campagne est plus utile que la ville. La ville, à moins d'être manufacturière, et n'étant que commerciale et lien d'échange, n'a point le haut caractère d'utilité de la compagne. La ville compte beaucoup de désoeuvrés, de déclassés, de parasites, de gens consommant et ne produisant point, de spéculateurs et de courtiers marrons qui n'ajoutent pas un cent à la fortune publique et qui pourtant vivent très bien. La ville a des mé Stiers interlopes et des professions dou teuses. ...

I turned him out in the spring to grass. And he'd always come when he'd see .e pass. I rubbed him and loved him, and he loved me; Why the way he showed it anybody Could see. He'd do anything I'd tell him to; He'd gee and haw-anything a calf could do. And he grow-well you never saw the beat; Why he got too fat to stand on his feet; Of course he was mine-they .ll knew that; Mother said that was why he got so fat, The neighbors knew it, and asked me: "Jim What are you going to do with him?"
