HER NEW YEARB IFTS. She tonsed them over with eager hands, Boxes, packages, large and small: And then 'mid her treasures forlorn she stands And whispers, sighing. "Can this be all? What are these baubles and toys and rings When the heart i- hungry for dearer things? "So poor, so poor ! If he only knew How I hate my wealth, wbata weight it seems ! He might have sent me a flower or two, But of course, dear fellow, he never dreams Of the pangs and heartache I feel the while I pass him by with a nod and smile. Yet somehow I thought the bright New Year Would bring me a message or friendly sign longed so for some little token, dear, To keep for ever and ever mine I" Then breathless, blushing, she sees, half hid, A sealed white letter her rifts amid. She kissed it thrice ere she smiling read: "Love, what can I lay before your feet? Only my faithful heart," he said, "Must I seal and send to your keeping, sweet." "Only your heart? But your heart," said she, "Is the dearest gift in the world ...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 10 Janvier, 1891. Parti Republicain. S'il est un parti vraiment odieux, an ti-démocratique à lextrême et montrani effrontément à son nom, c'est le parti qui s'intitule aux Etats-Unis parti ré publicain. Est-ce qu'il y a l'ombre de républi que honnête et sensée, de démocratie sage et juste, de vérité et de raison dans ce parti qui s'affuble d'un titre respectable pourtant; et ses principes ses doctrines, ses pensées et son pro gramme, d'accord avec ses actes, nE sont-ils pas la négation de tous les prin cipes qui ont créé, qui ont affirmé el qui ont grandi cette République et ces Etats-Unis? Voyons plutôt ce qu'il a dans le ven tre aujourd'hui, et ce que veulent sec chefs et ses maîtres. Car ses partisans, autant au Nord qu'au Sud, sont pour la pluspart des aveugles qui ne voient pas, des ignor ants qui ne comprennent guère, un troupeau qui n'a point l'oreille des dieux et la pensée des maîtres. Au Sud, par example, où nous les voyons de près, nous savons que c...

$1, IL DY CLARION. 0~t OUSABS, La .,.ablished every Saturday by "The St] JAndry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" LOYALTY. Petsps no good word is more abused and distorted and made to do duty in an exactly opposite direction from its real atture than the word "loyalty." in ics true aeceptation loyalty means "devoted to the maintainance of law; faith ful to the government, to the sovereign authority, to truth and right, to family and self." Designing men have siezed hold of this word and pressed it into service to hold unsuspecting persons in slavery to parties sand party machines. Voters are told that they must "be loyal to their party;" and at the same .ime the objects, aims and prineiples o those who control the party machine and are virtually the party, are directly opposed to all the true interests of the government, to the interests of the people, and ot the voter himself. Should the voter show signs of uneasl ane, or talk ,f "scratching his ticket," or "bolting the Mart...

"LOVE'S ENDLE8S SONG." The echo of a silver, silken strand Of music murmured in a far of land In honeyed rhymes meandees through my brals As though yearning for utterance again. The story sings its lovely self to me In low, mellifluous strains of melody; A nightingale chanting his song among The golden meshes of a lover's song. The lover boasting with divinest art The beauty of the ladyof his heart, In concert with the birdaings of the ache Borne in his heart of hearts for dead love'saska Even two ~itles deemed he not too much For him to barter for the lightest touch Of her fair hand; and leave to kiss her feet Made all his world and all his life grow sweet The sultan, musing, marveled while he heard The lover's story and the night's sweet bird Making reply, and queried of the rose If she had heard them; and the legend goes Winding in wildering tangles of low sighs. "Love is enough," the blushing rose replies. "Pierced by the storm," the dying bulbul tells His endless story bver, an...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 17 Janvier, 1891. Monopole. Nous ne savons pas tous ce que c'est qu'un monopole. Et beaucoup d'entre nous, certes, qui se disent démocrates, mais qui favor isent le monopole et les monopoleuâ, ne se croiraient plus tels s'ils savaient exactement ce que c'est que Je"mono pole. Car le monopole est l'opposé, le con traire et l'ennemi de la démocratie. Il en est la négation. En toute république se disant démo cratique et voulant l'être, au nom de la justice la plus simple et la plus claire, par respect pour le grand prin cipe d'égalité devant la loi, il faut én ergiquement repousser le monopole, qui est synonyme de privilège. Et ce privilège a ce double et odieux caractère: Il favoriseles uns au détri ment des autres. Bien plus, ceux qu'il favorise sont quelques uns seulement, et ceux auxquels il porte préjudice sont la masse ou le peuple. Le monopole, comme l'indique son étymologie grecque-"monos, polein," vendre Lseul, ou " monos polis," seul dans la ville ou la...

ST, LANDRY CLARION. O 'ELOUSAS, • • La Published every Saturday by "The St Landry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" BYLO LAN!D. Written for The American. When out of the West long shadows creep, And the stars peep out, a shining band, Our baby weary of fan and play. Goes out thro' the gates to Bylo Land. O, which is the road to Bylo Land ? By the way of Grandpa's easy chair, Or better, by mother's loving arms, With kissess pressed on the shining hair. She nestles down with a weary sigh, While the lashes touch the rounded cheek, With her arms clasped close 'round mother's neck, Who kises the love she cannot speak. A wonderful land is Bylo Land, To judge by the smiles on baby's face, The angels must surely weave her dreams, And lend to her of their winsome grace. O. baby, we envy thy sunny lot. For we that are older seldom see Tue flowery path to Ilylo Land, Or meet the angels that talk with thee. -Florence A. Jones, Hampton, Iowa. A COOKING LESSON. 'Twas St. Theresa gave it. S...

THE CRUEL SEA. Beautiful Lily! child of ourarve Fair as we picture the angels above! From the wild tempest, 0, where dost thou hide? Why art thou gone from my sight and my side? When the dark storm-clouds come over the hill, And the wild angry waters wax angry and still, I think of the child whom I once loved the best, Who will never lie down 'neath the daisies at rest; Where dost thou slumber the cold sleep of death? The spirit of ocean i~eceived thy last breath Did she make thee a grave in the coral graves fair, Where the sands are as goldenly bright as thy hair? The hair that so often I have kissed, and have rolled O'er my fingers so lightly--a web of spun gold : No more can the waters seem lovely to me They are cruel and fierce as a wild beast can be Yet a terrible spell they hold over my soul, And Isteal tothe beach where the angry waves roll, i Ipicture thy form as it sways with the tide, And think of the beauty the dark waters hide, 'Till I long for the strength to cope with ...

LE CLAIRON. Samedi, le 24 Janvier, 1891. LES TEMPERANTS. Les tempérants divaguent tous, sa vants ou non. Il en est même qui prétendent qu'ils deviennent tous intempérants, pour ne pas dire -ivrognes. Nous ne leur faisons point cette in jure. Mais nous croyons qu'ils raisonnent mal, comme tous ceux qui sont ex trêmes et systématiques. Ils condamnent toute boisson, sauf l'eau, le lait, le thé et le café. Et ils voient l'alcool, le poison et l'i vrognerie dans toute autre boisson. Certes, l'alcool est dans le vin, dans le cidre et dans la bière. A vrai dire, où n'est-il pas? Quelle nourriture n'en contient-elle pas? Et quand je suce une canne à sucre, ou que je me barbouille le mu seau avec du sirop ou de la mélasse, est-ce que je ne consomme pas de l'al cool? L'alcool n'est terrible que comme abus. Jamais, l'eau-de-vie, par exemple, employée raisonnablement, n'a tué un homme, ni même abrégé ses jours. Il en serait de même du whiskey, si le whiskey était toujours pur et pris modérément...

ST, LANDRY CLARION. O'ELOUSAS, . . La Pabliehed every Saturday by "The St Jandry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" INDIAN WOMEN ARE SLAVES. The Hard and Generally Thankless Est of the Bedskin's Squaw. The women of all Indian tribes, doomed to a hopeless bondage of slavery, the fate of their sex in every savage race, have but few amusements. They accept their con dition stoically, however, by the unerring law of heredity through ages of abuse and servile obedience. The lower the tribe in the scale of humanity the more degraded are the women. Among the Diggers of Oregon and Washington, with which sav ages I passed three or four years, the poor squaws are to be pitied. Living on roots and insects, which the women must fur nish, their existence as a tribe may well be imagined to be a very precarious one. If the camas, a bulb growing deep in the ground and very sweet, should fail, or the acorn and "black cricket" crop be not plen tiful in any year, their winter is liable to be one...

ST, LANDRY CLARION. OPELOUSAS, . . La Published every Saturday by "The St Landry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" I do not think it very serviceable to make a list of books for children to read. No two have exactly the same aptitudes, tastes, or kinds of curiosity about the world. And one story or bit ot information may excite the interest of a class in one school, or the children in one family, which will not take at all with others. The only thing is to take hold some where, and to begin to use the art of reading to find out about things as you use your eyes and .l. I knew a boy, a scrap of a la4, who ost needed a high chair to bring him up to the general level of the dining-table, who liked to read the encyclopedia. He was always hunting round in the big books of the encyclopedia -book about his own size-for what he wanted to know. He dug in it as another boy would dig in the woods for sasafras root. It appeared that he was interested in natural history and natural phenom...

IN A MAHOGANY CAM. SGENES IN THE DEEP FORESTS OF BRITISH HONDURAS.

An interesting story about mahogany cutting and rafting has reached the state department from Consul Burchard. Be line, the capital of the British possessions la Central America, now a city of consid -rable commercial importance, owes its erigin and wealth to the mahogany cutters. During the first half of the pres ent century princely fortunes were quickly accumulated in the business, especially by those who had the good fortune to secure contracts from the English government for the mahogany, which was formerly largely' employed in naval architecture. Since iron and steel have taken the place of wood in the construction of"pubi. ves sels the mahogany trade has decreased to a notable extent, although it is still large and profitable.

ST, LANDRY CLARION. OPELOUSAS, La Published every Saturday by "The St Landry Printing and Publishing Company, (Ltd.)" Lawlessness in Louisiana. To the Editor: Within a circle of seven miles from this capital city of Louisiana six colored churches have been closed and their pastors (with their people) have been driven away-some severely whipped and others shot. One man attempted to hide under his house, and this gang of white men compelled his wife to hold a light while they riddled him with bullets and dragged him out upon the front porch. AlthNegroes thus disturbed owned farms and houses, and were industrious, reliable persons. This, in the estimation of these "regulators," was tending toward Negro equality, and to the overthrow of white supremacy. Most of these people have fled into this city, leaving everything. A Miss Moore was disturbed because she had colored girls boarding with her and ate at the same table with them. I have a mission Sunday-school and day school in a cabin c...
