THE CLARION. OPIELOUSAS, LA., JULY 9~, 1593. THE FIRANCO-SLI MESE 1RO WV. Last week some time France and Si am became involved in a row. Ev crything tends to show that France is in the wrong-her actions speak that fact plain enough. She is only trying to gain more territory and power by working a bluff game on a weaker na tion. The facts of the case are as fol lows. There is a river in Siam named the Mekong. Near its mouth are two Si amese forts. In a previous treaty be tween these two powers, France obli gated herself not to send any war ves sels up this river. This compact was broken recently by the ascension of the river of two French gunboats. When they arrived in sight of the forts they were fired upon. The fire was returned, and quite a lively fusil ade followed. The result of this was that several on each side were killed. Immediately following this, France is sued an ultimatum to Siam. She de manded that Siam pay an indemnity .for the French soldiers killed in the fight, and...

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., JULY 29, 1893. LOC ALS. We were misinformed as to a boy having been drowned at Bell-Cheney Springs, and as to Tom King, white, having been buried in the sand-pit near Callihan bridge--Henry King, colored, was the man. The police jury reorganized last Wednesday by electing Mr. J. B. Ber geron, of the second ward, president. Some good work is being done on the Opelousas and Washington road, near the former town. The rice mill is running right along, and we notice that the rice still con tinues to come in. Mr. W. A. Adams, superintendent of the steam brick factory, informs us that he cannot supply the demand for brick. One day this week 15,000 brick were molded; a new kiln will soon be burnt. Corn retails in Opelousas at 5 and 6 cents per gallon, but the supply is not -equal to the demand; new corn will soon be dry enough for use. Edward Dnbuisson, father of the district attorney of the same name, planter and merchant, and a represent ative of the best elem...

NADf THE lILY. By H. RIDER HAGGARD. (Copyright, 15QT, by Tillotson & Son and pub lished by special arrangement with them.] [CONTINUED.] CHAPTER XXX. ZINITA COMES TO THE KING. Whilst Dingaan the king sat upon a day in the kraal Umigugundhlovu, one came near, saying that a woman craved leave to speak upon some great matter. "Let her come," he answered. Presently the woman was led in. "What is thy errand?" asked the king. "1 ask blood, O king." "The blood of whom?" "The blood of Bulalio the Slaugh terer, chief of the People of the Ax; the blood of Nada the Lily and of all those who cling to her." "What!" he cried, "does the Lily then live, as the captain thought?" "She lives, O king. She is wife to the Slaughterer, and has put me, his first wife, away." For a little while Dingaan sat as tounded. Then Zinita drew near and told Dinll gaan the tale of the birth of Umslopo gaas and all that followed; and by many a token and many a deed of T'Chaka's that he remembered, Dingaan the king ...

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., AUGUST 5, 1893. After all the waste of words and use less expenditure of a lot of force in brag, it seems that France and Siam will come to terms-Siam will accede to France's demands, and let her mon ey and territory go to the robbers. L. O. Desforges, tried last week in New Orleans for the killing of his brother-in-law, Peter McGinn, was ac quitted. When the jury handed in the verdict McGinn's relatives rushed into the court room and heaped male dictions on the judge and jury. Western grain planters and dealers are thinking about shipping their grain to New Orleans this year, instead of to Eastern cities as heretofore. If such happens New Orleans will be one of the greatest shipping ports in America. In the last few years the amount of wheat received there and shipped to other places is wonderful. The Crescent City is not on the down grade yet. The future prosperity of Louisiana cannot be assured by immigration. If we wish to see our State prosper we mu...

DORIS AND I. By JOHN E. STAFFORD. CHAPTER L ,1, What we said is of no account here. There was evil in front of us and much aching of hearts and suffering. But the throstle sang in the sycamore tree, and the swallows curved and twittered all about us, and in the rich amber light we could see all was fair and good. Then our eyes would meet and we thought not of evil, Doris and I. We spoke little, our hearts being very full and words mere idleness. Doris looked out again to the west, leaning her herd against me and taking my hand as it twined over her shoulder. We were in the orchard by the old green wicket, where a month ago, be fore the blossoms had burst their bulbs, she had allowed me to tell her an old tale and had said one word of her own to give it finish. And as the throstle sang his love song and the sun sank to his bed behind the hills I thougt of then and now, and my head lowered and I kissed her forehead gently. Then Doris sighed as if a spell was broken, for I had come to ...

[Copyright, 1891, by Charles B.

Some of the editors extend their heartfelt sympathies; others advise me to apply to the courts for a guardian. Had it been an item charging me with sheep stealing, bigamy, arson or jail breaking I should have laid back on my dignity and never let on that I was worried. As it is I feel that it is due my character to make an explanation. I was taking a stroll on the Midway plaisance when a stranger tapped me on ...

THE, CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., AUGUST 12,,1893. THE DEOCLINE OF COTTON. A daily scanning of the market re ports assures us that our great staple, instead of increasing in price, is de creasing. The quotations do not ad vance-if there is any fluctuation in price you may be sure that it is for the decrease. One thing is certain, there is plenty of cotton on the market, probably too much. This is poor prospects for the farmer this year. The crop will be large, and the price now existing will be further lowered. Year after year this state of affairs gets worse; the acreage of cotton is increased, and the price lessens; the farmer toils away to relieve himself of the heavy, and still increasing, burden of debt cast on his shoulders by cotton. Truly, this is serious-in fact, so serious that there is no telling when a convulsion will take place in the agricultural world. Many farmers have either quit plant ing, or decreased their acreage of, cot ton; but those remaining in the busi ness hav...

TH COIJNTERFEIT COIN CHAPTER L I rose and opened the door. Late one Saturday afternoon in a cer tain December I sat by a good sea coal fire in my office, trying to muster cour age enough for an encounter with the cold winds and driving storm outside. Half ashamed to confess my cowardice to myself, I had done every unnecessary thing I could think of to kill time, till at last I was reduced to the necessity of counting over the contents of my purse. This, however, was but a brief resource. "A short horse," as the proverb has it, "is soon curried." The only coin worth lingering on was a bright, new half eagle given me that morning by some chance customer as my recompense for "doing a deed." Limited as my'practice and my fees had always been, half eagles were not entirely a novelty to me, and yet from the prolonged attention with which in my procrastinating frame of mind I re garded it, a looker in might have sup posed 1 was studying some rare antique instead of a very ordinary specimen...

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., AUGUST 19, 1893. "NVEC PLUCRIBUS IIPAR!"' The Clarion writer is endowed with vital itv at least. He comes at us this time with the battle ax of satire in one hand and sprigs of an cient history in the other. Routed from his tirst position he seeks refuge in anti quity and endeavors to hurl occult learn iig at us in the vain hope of dazzling the perceptions of his readers so that they may lose sight of the real issue.-Courier. The "Cs 4rulo- writer" never raised any "issue." The "real issue" is the voluntary statement of the Courier writer, that "Never since the war among the States has there been one single fair election in Louisiana." The Courier writer "switched off" of this "real issue," and raised the false issue of personality. He give us two scraps of history which serve to show the scope of his reading-the retentiveness of his memory and the force of his rhetoric. He takes us back 4384 years when he says, "Jehovah sought among the Israelites and c...

T1 COUNTERFEIT CON [CONTINUED.) CHAPTER III. The course of retributive justice as administered here on earth has more different paces than Rosalind has attrib uted to time, but "those with whom it lags withal" are not often the poor and friendless. A few days only elapsed before I was summoned as a witness to attend the trial of Alice Sumner. In the meantime both Mr. Bullion and myself made great but fruitless efforts to obtain a further insight into the true facts of the case. The prisoner herself made no confes sion, but constantly asserted her inno cence, to the great discomfiture of the broker and the unutterable perplexity of myself. I sought in vain for a flaw in the chain of evidence against her or a chance to establish her innocence by other facts. Even the general testimony of good character-the last frail reed on which she leaned-seemed to bend be. neath her. She and her mother had but lately come to the city, and to all our in quiries as to their former home and friends w...

THE CLARION. OPELOUSAS, LA., AUGUST 26, 1S93. P' RITY. Fixing the parity between gold and silver seems to be the stumbling block, with many, in the way of free coinage of silver; even with President Cleve land himself, who thinks that this country alone can not settle the mat ter, but that it must he done by inter national agreement. It is scarcely possible to fix an absolutely accurate parity; it can only be approximated. The parity now between gold and sil ver is one in weight of gold to sixteen of silver. The latter metal has been so demonetized that the demand for it has been reduced, and it has only a commercial value when in the shape of bullion; but when coined, the peo ple accept it as readily as they do gold, and give as much for a silver As they do for a gold dollar. When a bushel of wheat sells for a dollar in gold, a dollar in gold may be said to be worth a bushel of wheat, and that there is parity between a gold dollar and a bushel of wheat; but when wheat sells at 80 c...
