I-N SAN)ERS' HIATUS By DAVID A. OURTIS. CIopyright, 150I, by American Press Assoola' :i tion.1 (CONTINUED.] CHAPTER V. THE INSPECTOR'S STATEMENT. I had always been interested in Mr. SJohn Saunders from the time that I first met him as a reporter of The Item, be cause I then had reason to believe that he was trying to reform. I watched him closely for a year or two and took pains to inform myself thoroughly of his hab its of living, when suddenly I changed my mind about him and concluded that he was leading a double life. I knew him, or thought I did, as a conscientious reporter, a gentleman of excellent attainments and irreproach able habits, and I also knew him as a gambler and adventurer, against whom no criminal charge had ever been brought, but whose associates were cer tainly less than questionable-a man whose frequent and prolonged absence from the city was generally accounted for on the supposition that he was one of the gamblers who make a business of traveling across the At...

The story which is narrated in the fol lowing pages came to me from the lips of my old friend, Allan Quatermain, or Hunter Quatermain, as we used to call him in South Africa. He told it to me one evening when I was stopping with him at the place he bought in York shire. Shortly after that the death of his only son so unsettled him that he immediately left England, accompanied by two companions, who were fellow voyagers of his, Sir Henry Curtis and Captain Good, and has now utterly van ished into the dark heart of Africa. He is persuaded that a white people, of whom he has heard rumors all his life, exists somewhere on the highlands hin the vast, still unexplored interior, and .. great ambition is ...

* THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, APRIL 2S, 1893. Tax, Mortgage and Cash Sale blanks for sale at Bodemuller's Job Office. Mud and dust have succeeded each other pretty rapidly on our streets of late. The fee for Mr. Harvey's two horses Cradock and Black Cloud, Jr., has been reduced. See ad. Mr. Hart H. Sandoz has applied for the appointment of deputy Collector of Internal Revenue for this district. Several of the town boys are trying to orgonize a gun club. This is a good move, and we hope it will succeed. Our sister town, Washington, is go ing to lay the sidewalks with planks. Why can't we do likewise? Some time ago we heard that a rac ing association was to be organized, but the enthusiam seems to have died out.

OPELOUSAS, APRIL 5!, 4893. CHATAIGNIER, April 12th, 1893. What news ? Methinks there is a little feeling of uneasiness wafted by this balmy south breeze; it is very faint, almost unreal, yet, one feels it. With the new administration chan ges are likely to occur. We might lose our efficient postmistress. And then adieu to all our carelessness--I forget such and such addresses but the post mistress will attend to it-or it is too cold to go to postoffice today; post mistress will please unseal certain let ters, note contents and answer accord ingly. No doubt there are many persons in this community who would fill the position honorably; but if the old adage, "Practice makes perfect," is true, none can replace the present in cumbent. It is quite a peculiar position here; altogether different from city post offices: the majority of the people are uneducated, and they have a fashion of fabricating names, ad libitum; as they are entirely ignorant of the rules of orthography they have litt...

Ti¶E HERO OF HAWAII KAMEHAMEHA I, CONQUEROR AND RULER OF THE OCEAN KINGDOM. His Wars and His Triumphs Were Contem poraneous With Washington's-He Arose Prom Brutal Savagery to Be a Model General, Ruler and Paternal King. |Copyright, I98, by American Press Associa tion, Book rights reserved.] N THE littlegroup of natives whose curiosity led them on board of Cap tain Cook's vessel when he touched at Maul, Sandwich Islands, in 1778, was a young sav of Kalaniopun, king of Maul and Hawaii. At night fall, the wind blowing hard in shore, the vessel stood to sea carry ing out a number of belated island ers. Next morn ing the party was landed, and to the astonishment o f the navigators was received by throngs of their fellows on shore with the wildest rejoicing. A person of great rank had been entertained un awares on the ship, but the foolish crowd of stay at homes had imagined that Cook meant to kidnap their favorite prince, Kamehameha, the scion of a dynasty of kings then in its 74th reign...

AN OLD MAN'S MEIORY CHAPTER L "No, Paui, I want a mind to worship as welU as a heart to lode." Ha, they say I am growing old. Old! I was old a score of years ago. This hand is fleshless anti wrinkled, and as I write it moves tremulously over the paper. True, it was not so twenty years ago, nor were my eyes dimmed and de spoiled of their youthful luster; my step was firm, my head erect, my hair as glossy as when my mother bade me her last, dying farewell. All these I had yet I was old. My life was gone; I1 only existed. Twenty years-long, dreary ay-rs! And as I look back upon the thorar3, uneven path, naught but mock ing shadows, stretching their huge black bodies across the way, appear to my view. Did I say naught? No. One star-one bright, refulgent star at length penetrated the gloom of my pathway and...

OPELOLSAS, APIIL 29, 4898. ALONG PARALLEL LINES. To say that every statute law has an effect the direct opposite of what it was intended to have, will be deemed a rash assertion by most people. Nev ertheless the proposition is suscepti ble of proof. For fifteen centuries the Jews were subjected to every species of oppression and persecution the en genuity of man could devise. They were not permitted to hold land. Like little Joe that lived up by Tom All-a lone's they were constantly being told to "move on." They could not en gage in mechanical and agricultural pursuits. They were forced to adopt trading as a calling and pursued even that calling under many difficulties. The result was to develop in them an extraordinary shrewdness and alert-' ness in trade and finance. I deny that the jews are the most avaricious people that exist, as is often asserted. For pure, unadulterated swinishness, commend me to the Americans. The assertion of Darwin that ac quired traits are transmitted, la...

Mr. White has completed the assess ing of the first ward, after about two months' hard work. The assessment shows that there are more voters in this ward than in many parishes in the State.

Some years since-it was during the winter before the Zulu war-a white man was traveling through NataL His name does not matter, for he plays no part in this story. All went well till he had passed the little town of Stanger, which was once the site of Duguza, the kraal, of Chaka, the first Zulu king. The night after he left Stanger the air turned bitterly cold. Heavy gray clouds filled the sky and hid the light of the stars. "Now if I were not in Natal I should say that there was a heavy fall of snow coming," said the white man to himself. "I have 9ten seen the sky look like that in Scotland before snow." Then he reflected that the...

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., MAY 13, 1893. Last Sunday the New York World got out a 100-page edition. The Coming Nation, a new weekly paper, published at Greensburg, Indi ana, has reached us. "Running down" a man's character is poor revenge; but it is the only modern way to "get even," unless you resort to a personal difficulty. The site for the bridge to cross the river at New Orleans has been settled on. It is about twelve miles above the head of Canal street. Fanatics are becoming numerous everywhere. They have no respect for the beliefs of other people. Here in Opelousas we have our full share. "Society is rotten," is an everyday assertion. This is true; but those who complain of this state of affairs are the ones who generated the object of their complaint. In almost everyone "'tis the mind's phantasma which the mind adores;" and, sincerely believing what they think, they rush blindly into the mnelstrom that whirls them to destruc tion. Nearly all the great criminals, es pecial...

Now praise on, my chil dren!" and he laughed, while the sol diers murmured, "On! he is wise, he is great, his justice is bright and terrible like the sunl" But the two men cried out in fear, for this they did not seek.
