TALMAGE SERMON By ·ev. FRANK DE WITT TALMAGE. D.D.. Pastor of Jeferson Park Presby terian Church, Chicogo Chicago, June 7.-In this sermon the preacher sets forth with enthusiasm the delights of the Christian ministry and the opportunities it offers to the graduates of our learned institutions as the ideal life of consecrated useful ness.

THE CAU CSANS Official Journal of the City of Shreveport. THURSDAY, JUNE II, 1903. Hon. Robert Landry, clerk of the House of Representatives, has an nounced himself as a candidate for sec retary of state. Mr. Landry is an efficient progressive and popular official and would fill creditably the office to which he aspires. Some newspapers as well as some men, claiming to be Democrats, are seemingly worrying over Mr. Bryan and his leadership. While these newspa pers and these men criticise Bryan ad versely, they sing the praise of Grover Cleveland, who betrayed the Democracy and gave support, indirectly if not di rectly, to McKinley. It is all plain and so plain that a blind man can see through it. Principles and candidates, as a rule, do not harmonize into steadfast con sistency. The candidate seeking a stall has greater concern for the feeding than the principle. In the past the pledge to principles, like the platform, has been "good enough to go in on," but there will be demanded of...

No greater truth, however, has been promulgated in any age or among any people. For all classes of workers the mottoes "Won't Worry" and "Don't Fear" have incalculable value, but for the housewife, the real woman of af fairs, these mottoes are a veritable treasure trove. How often have I seen women sitting at their sewing or busied over dishes or. dusting. w...

LOSSES NOT KNOWN. The Amount of Damage Done at East St. Louts Cannot Yet ile Learned. St. Louis, June 12.-That the crisis of the flood situation in East St. Louis has passed, so far as that city is con cerned, is generally accepted as a fact by the citizens of East St. Louis. Boat crews which Wednesday strained their energies to the point of exhaustion in c rescuing the prisoners of the flood, I Thursday occupied themselves in sav Ing property and bringing to higher ground belated refugees who were in immediate danger. The river Thursdayv ilght was stationary at 87.9 feet. Since the break in the Illinois Cen tral levee the flood has made no dan gerous breaks, although the flood area was further increased by seepage. Some water has been finding its way into the territory between Missouri avenue and St. Louis avenue. People in this dis trict, however, have not been compelled to leave their homes, although it is nec essary for them to use boats to obtain food. East St. Louis Thursday a...

THE CAUCASIAN. Official Journal of the City of Shreveport. SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 90o3. JASTREMSKI'S PLATFORM. In the Caucasian's issue of recent date there was published the announce ment of Hon. Leon Jastremski as a can didate for Governor in referring to which editorially we suggested that he give a definite interpretation of his words "to elect all public officials whom it is practicable for the people to elect." In his explanation given in the Times-Democrat Mr. Jastmeski says: "Were the people of Louisiana to con fer upon me the exalted office of gov ernor, I confess I would hail with de light the curtailment of the extraordi nary powers under which our execu tives have toiled, to the very last degree compatible with the. public exigencies, for thus relieved of this 'white man's burden,' I would devote myself entirely to the promotion of the industries and general interest of the commonwealth.
