That night the curse of Baleka fell upon Chaka, and he slept ill. So ill did he sleep that he summoned me to him, bidding me walk abroad with him; so I went, and we walked alone and in silence, Chaka leading the way and I following after him. Now I saw that his feet 'led him toward the U'Donga lu-ka-Tatiyana, that place where all my people lay dead, and with them Baleka, my sister. We climbed the slope of the hill to that same spot where Chaka had stood when the people fell over the lips of the rock like water over a waterfall. The moon lighted up the dead so that I could se them all, yes, even the face of Baleka, my sister. Never had it looked so beautiful as in this hour, and yet as I gazed I grew afraid. "Thou wouldst not have won thy bet now, Mopo, my servant," said Chaka. "See, they have sun...

One day when Adam was taking a pleasure stroll in the garden of Eden, admiring the flowers, the fruits and the animals, himself contented and happy, he saw a beautiful creature that he had never beheld before, and near by another creature of sinister aspect, lurking about in the bushes as if try ing to avoid Adam's observation and at the same time keep near the beau tiful one. The former Adam subse quently called wo-man, because she was the origin of man's woe; the latter was Satan, looking after Satan's interests. The two had evidently just had an in terview, and the beautiful one was pushed forward by Satan to inaugu rate an enterprise, the success of which, t...

The wise medical men of Berlin claim to have discovered what cholera is. They say it is a poison generated by the coma bacilli. Now the thing to do is to catch the coma bacilli and kill him.-(Picayune.) That's some thing similar to the Yankee flea pow der-it is not effective unless you catch each flea, open his mouth and put a dose down his maw. The surest way to make a bad man mad is to tell ham the truth about himself.-(Ram's Horn.) If that's the rule, the surest way to make a goof man glad is to tell him a lie about himself.

And at this time a rumor came to the ears of the king Dingaan that there lived in Swaziland among the Halakazi tribe a girl of the most wonderful beauty, who was named the Lily and whose skin was whiter than are the skins of our people, and lie desired greatly to have this girl to wife. So Dingaan sentan embassy to the chief of the Halakazi, demanding that the girl should be given to him. This was the message of the chief of the Halakazi to Dingaan, king of the Zulus: Tha...

THE CLARION. CLARl ON E TTES. .thWe are inclined to think that our forefathers made a mistake in issuing "the Declaration of Independence" in July.-(Times-Democrat.) O, no ! They were hot times then, for war was go ing on, and it was only right to declare independence in hot weather. A new disease has been diagnosed in Boston. It is known as the "church fan cold," and is caused by some lady behind the victim fanning herself. It i4 noticed, however, that people who stay away from church for fear of catching this form of cold can go to the theatre with impunity.-(Exchan ge.)

You are no match for Dingaan, though dwelling here alone in an empty land you have grown great in your own eyes and the eyes of those about you. Moreover.

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., JULY I15, 1893. Says the St. Louis Republic of a re cent date: "For President in 1896, a Western man or bust." We ask, when is the South going to place a man in the presidential chair? Last Thursday night a week ago a terrible cyclone struck Pomeroy, Iowa, and came near wiping it off the face of the earth. About a hundred people were killed and injured, and fully $800, 000 worth of property destroyed. Last week we neglected to call at tention to the advertisement of Tulane University, which appears in another column. This well known institution has many advantages, and is gaining in popularity every year. A terrible fire occurred in Chicago on Monday. A cold storage building on the World's Fair grounds caught fire, and in the attempt made by the firemen to save it, about twenty were burned to death. Also several were badly wounded.

On the morrow the impi awoke re freshed with sleep, and Umslopogaas thanked them well, saying that the vic tory was great and the cattle they had won were countless. Yet something was lacking-she was lacking whom he came to seek to be a gift to Dingaan, the king, and for whose sake this war was made. Where now was the Lily? Yesterday she had been here, clad in a moocha like a man and bearing a shield-this he knew from the captains; where then was she now? Then all the soldiers said that they knew nothing of her. When they had done Galazi spoke a word, as had btex a agreed. He said that as they stormed the cave he had seen a man run at a warrior in the cave to slay him.

THE CLARION. OPELOULSAS, LA., JULY 22, 1893. Well, it looks as if a certain class of people are about to get hold of all the property in the country-a few own more than the mass. If this state of affairs keeps up, look out for anarchy. Another revolution has broken out in Nicaragua. It has not been long since one ended. Indications are that several other Latin-America republics will soon be involved in the horrors of civil war. France and Siam are having a little spat. Some French gun boats fired into a Siamese fort, and now it looks as if war was next on the programme of summer amusements for those coun tries. Poor things! Emperor William, of Germany, has a hobby-the army bill. It was de feated in the old Reichstag, and the Emperor got mad. He dissolved the body, called for elections to be held to elect new members, and he got a small majority, consequently the army bill has gone through.

Then we were silent awhile, and pres ently in the silence a dog barked. We rose and crept out of the hut to see what it might be that stirred, for the night drew on and it was needful to be wary, since a dog might bark at the stirring of a leaf or, perchance, it might be the distant footfall of an impi that it heard. We had not far to look, for standing gazing on the huts as one who is afraid to call was a ...
