HOW MY BOY WE f DOWN. It was not on the field of battle, It was not with a ship at sea But a fate far worse than either, That stole him away from me; 'Twas the death in the ruby wine-cup, That the reason and senses daen; He drank the alluring poison, And thus my boy went down Down from the heights of manhood To the depths of disgrace and sin, Down to the worthless being, From the hope of what might have been, - For the brand of a beast besotted, He breathed his manhood's crown; Through the gate of a sinful pleasure, My poor, weak boy went down. 'Tis only the same old story That mothers so often tell With accents of Infinite sadness, Like the tones of a funeral bell. But I never once thought, when I heard it, I should learn all its meaning myself; I thought he'd be true to his mother. I thoughtihe'd be true to himself. But alas for my hopes all delusion ! Alas for his youthful pride I Alas ! Who are safe when danger Is open on every side? Oh, can nothing destroy this great evil? No b...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 20 Decembre, 1890. NI Morte ni Mourante. L'autre jour, le président Harrison, selon une coutume américaine des plus respectables, lançait une proclamation d'actions de grâce au peuple des Etats Unis; et ce peuple, dans l'église, dans le temple, dans la synagogue et peut être ailleurs, selon la foi de chacun, re merciait la Providence pour les faveurs et les biens qu'elle avait prodigués à cette nation, et la priait de continuer ses bienfaits à l'Union dont nous som mes tous membres, au Sud comme au Nord,-Union d'égaux qui doit se per pétuer dans la liberté, dans la démocra tie et dans la grandeur. Le Gouverneur Nicholls, de son cô té, demandait particulièrement au peu ple de la Louisiane les mêmes actions de grâce, les mêmes remerciements, la même manifestation de reconnaissance pour la Louisiane, son Etat, notre Etat et un Etat qui est et qui doit être l'é gal des autres. Nous trouvons que c'est bien et que c'est juste. Il convient que les peuples soient re c...

ST. LANDRY CLARION. OPELOUSAS, . La Published every Saturday by "The St. Landry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" THE SONGS OF THE BELLS. THs CHUBnH HzLL. Written for The American. The church bell hangs in its rocken tower; Its brazen notes are the notes of power; With lusty strokes so brave and strong, It sings with glee each matin song; Clear and true are the peals of hope, As the sexton pulls the well-worn rope, And worldly thoughts, like evil deeds. Are swept away by churchly creeds. The mom-grown walls, the tapering spire, Jill humble hearts with sweet desire; The silent sermon in the weathered stone Is God's good seed by conscience sown, To fill our souls with fervent love, And then, like Noah's weary dove, Come home to rest beneath the wall Where vesper chimes like music fall. Soft and mellow, deep-toned bell, Its music steals thro' memory's dell. Who will tell of the thoughts it brings? Who will forget the songs it sings? THrE vILLAs BELL. It sung of days when youthfu...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 27 Decembre, 1890. Que Font-ils î Oui, que font-ils dans ce Congrès de républicains et de partisans, et leur dernière session sera-t-elle inarquée par une acte sans nom de folie et de ven geance? Il faut s'attendre à tout de la part de ces vaincus du 4 Novembre, et si nous pouvions croire qu'ils renoncent A la lutte, qu'ils abandonnent la partie, qu'ils ont fait leur deuil du pouvoir et veulent s'en consoler philosophique ment, c'est que nous ne - les connaîtri ons guère. Les partis sont plus tenaces que cela. Ils ne lâchent point aisement leur proie. Il faut plus d'un coup pour les tuer ou les abattre. Et quand, sans l'ivresse d'un premier triomphe, voy ant votre adversaire à terre, vous vous réjouissez qu'il soit mort ou réduit à l'impuissance complète, cet adversaire se relève très souvent, vous frappe avec. violence et dans l'endroit vulnérable, et vous prouve que vous aviez tort de vous réjouir dans un excès de confiance et dans un moment d'oubli.

M EItRY CIIR1ST1MAS to all our readers for 11 1690. Another Holiday season is right at our doors, bringing its Christmas duties as well - as its Christmas cheer. You have presents to buy, undoubtedly, and you feel that the selection of nice and atpprolriate articles at prices within the limits of your p1ur- will prove no small task. Almost everybody is in the same state of mind at the present time. It is the great duty Christmas imposes on man, that he shall go forth and buy gifts for his fellow man, and we may add that lie usually puts it off until the eleventh hour, and then goes about his duly so crowded for time and so uncertain about what to get and where to find it, that Christmas gifts are not the care fully chuoren and appropriate selections they should be, but a hastily collected lot of "things that will do.," indicative of more good will than good taste on the part of tlwhe giver.

The lottorites ought to have found out by this time that there's "someting in der blade." Rev. N. W. Ware, who voted in the legslalture to submit the lottery amend me-t to the people, has been deposed from the ministry a d ex:elded from his church. "Oh, I'm not a lottery man. I'l do all I can against it; but I want it submitted to the people." This is the excuse some of our legislators gave in voting topu~b mit the lottery amendment. If this be true, why is it that we never hear of them fghtlng the lottery? One man said that he would vote for the amendment, but when he went home he would enter the campaign against the lottery; but if he has ever uttered a sentence against that gambling iniquity, we have never heard of it. This excuse is just simply too thin. The very idea of a legislator wantin...

Christmas at the School House. "District No. 6" was oing to "cele brate" by having a Christmas tree at the school house. The teacher, Miss Allen, had suggested it to the parents. It was to be specially for the school children, al. though anybody in the district could have the privilege of hanging presents for their friends and relatives. The week before Christmas was, there fore, a very busy one. Every afternoon that week an hour was given to mak ing candy and popcorn bags and rehearsing appropriate songs and recitations. The superintendent gave the school the day before Christmas to make wreaths and trim up the school house. Miss Allen sent two of the older boys to cut a hand some young pine tree in Evergreen Woods. All was excitement and happy anticipation. "I hopb the Johnstons and Willards will not come; they alwaysIook so dirty and ragged," said one of the girls as she stripped evergreens for wreaths. Miss Allen heard the remark and turned quickly towards her. "I hope they will...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 8 Janvier, 1891. tune scie. Les journaux, hier favorables à la Loterie de la Louisiane, sont bien si lencieux pour le quart d'heure. Nous ne les blâmons pas. C'était leur droit de parler, comme c'est leur droit de se taire. Après tout, ne considéraient-ils pas la chose comme morte? Ou bien, la chose qui leur paraissait bonne tout d'abord, ou passable, ne leur semblerait-elle pas mauvaise au jourd'hui? Changer n'est pas un crime, n'est-ce pas ? quand c'est pour le mieux surtout, et quand ce changement est déterminé par la conscience et par la conviction morale. St. Paul, sur le chemin de Damas, a changé; St. Augustin a changé, et beaucoup de saints ont changé. Pourquoi n'en serait-il pas de même des journaux, qui, à vrai dire, ont beaucoup A faire pour devenir des saints? Mais si les journaux ont à peu près laché la machine de M. Dauphin, le bon public de la Louisiane n'en reçoit pas moins, de temps en temps et sous forme de petits pamphlets, la prose an glaise...

Several years ago the Indian commissioner directed the agents to organize Indian courts. He prepared a code of rules and a list of offenses. The experiment has worked surprisingly welL The red man may leave his mowing machine out of doors to rust. He may discard his stone house for a tepee. But when it comes to hold court he follows the white man's road with great dignity and efficiency. Each of these Indian courts consists of three judges. The Indian agents make the nominations. The Indian commissioner confirms. The term is one year, but the judge may be removed at anytime. Regu lar sessions are held every othe...
