THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., JUNE 17, 1893. CLARION E TTE S. "Knoii;ledge is power;" but power is not knowledge. Several State papers are in favor of high taxation on a low assessment; or, vice versa, low taxation on a high as sessment. It is difficult to tell which would benefit the people the most. "This is a republican form of gov ernment," is the sign that the United States sticks out for the wolrd's inspec tion. But, truthfully, it is an office holder's form of government, where the man with the most "spondulicks" gets the office, and, of course, full sway of the national finances. While the people in the overflow dis tricts are "scared out of their boots" over the threatening inundation of their property, the waters continue to pour untrammelled down the Mlissis sippi river. A friend remarked to us not long since that those who lived "in the hills" could talk and theorize on the outlet and le mee systems, but the people who lived in the overflow regions were not benefitted by ...

Now many moons had gone by since Umslopogaas became a king of the wolves, and he was a man full grown; a man fierce and tall and keen; a slayer of men, fleet of foot and of valor une qualed, seeing by night as well as by day. But he was not yet named the Slaughterer, and not yet did he hold that iron chieftainess, the ax Groanmaker. Still this was foremost in his mind, to win the ax, for no woman had entered there, who when she enters drives out all other desire-aye, my father, even that of good weapons.
