S ITERARY ITARS IN NEW OILaS
Under the above caption the Morning Star of New Orlea.s,
official journal of the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans
and the Diocese of Savanah, contains a sketch of the life sad
works of Mrs. Susan Blanchard Elder, mother of Mr. H. C. '
Elder, the well-known life insurance agent, who visits this
section so often.
The Gazette has not been unacquainted with Mrs. Elder's
works and was complimented by that authoress with a copy
of her "Gems," a volume of beautiful poenp, including "My
Bridal Veil" and "Cleopatra Dying," two noble works of po
etical genius, and at least one of her historical works, reciting
the seal and efforts of early pioneers in the politieal and
religious life of our State. Mrs. Elder can easily be classed
among the most gifted and most versatile of Louisiana writers.
The Morning Star says:
1870 to 1900.
By Mrs. Jamee J. MeLoushli. d
The history of the Morning Star dates back before 180 0j
and the writer of this article has been trying to locase records p
that will give a detailed account of these interesting deades.
In 1873, Judge trank McGloin published some of his best
poems in these columns, and a few years later, writers of sub
standing as James L Randall (author of Maryland, My Mary
land) and Mrs. Susan B. Elder, not only contributed to the b
paper but were engaged in its editorial work.
Our Catholic docesan paper has a remarkable part and
it is most interestiag to find leading writers were proud to
have their efforts pat in its pages.
From time to tme these gifted authors' poems and
sketches will reappear in this paper. The literary ascendey a
of New Orleans during the period from 1870 to 1909 wrl be
shown in these reproductions and readers will have -an oppor
tunity to become acquainted with these poems of a ..ge U
century. Not only Catholic writers but sume national p
as Pearl Rivers (Ms. Eliza J. Nicholson), larttfa (Mrs. saiy
Ashley Townsend), Catherine Cole (Mrs. Martha P ld) sad
Mrs. Mollie Moore Davis are going to live gain, if only a
brief e, and show the prominence gain for f LOr Y ay 3
her ci hildren.
This review will begin with the venerable Mrs. Susan B.
Eldet, who has been living tor several years in CiainnattL
Born and reared in Louisiana, her father was General Alert
G. Blanchard and her mother's name was Susan Thespea. It
is believed that her father's brilliant record in the Mxiesa b
War waked her yopg enthusiasm and kindled the fs of a
poetry in her heart even at the age of sixteen.
M Elder's life was given to teaching and literatre Har
husband, Charles Elder, was the brother of Archbishop Ilder,
and was one of seven brothers, each of whom was an erat a
to the ommunity ina whh be lived. e
While prod uei beautiful verses, many appearag under
the name of " erno," Mrs. Elder fouald time, the lMd
of he duties as mother and housekeeper, to write numberie
prose sketches. Her subjets were as diversied as local biD r d
and interest could mske them, and the style as finished a
elegant as ti stanss o her poems.
The a ifluence of her pen was not her only asset,
as this remarable woman's so Mt shone forth fi_ n her
hoe, ttracting all gifted pople to at nte. She -
to have the power to leated hidden lights of others nd he
sweet influence brought them forth to shine for the benefit
of New Orleans. Many case of unusual talent were disoered
byher and own their development, in after years, to har e.
lin enour ment.
Sreignd among atists, musicians and Steratem Th
evenings at her home can never be forgotten by these e
tunate enough to be numbered amo her friends. Ps mbat
visitors always spent an evening with Mrs. Susa B. Elder,
and this ha ng eirle resembled the old Salons a_
They re even. fr , Per stading, as tbhe aa
guests better for the happy experience.
We here reproduce one of Mrs. Elder's meet eautiful re
ligious poems, so suited to this holy season and the day it
eommemoates. -Many other poems of widely ranging sub e
came from her fluent pen, among them Cleopatra Dyln
which ranks with the classics of our state.
A silver salver-a handful of dust,
Ashes of palms that were blessed in the spring,
A kneeling throng-and the words of trust,
Thrilling the heart, through the silence ring:
Mother and maid, sire and youth,
Take to your souls the unchangeable truth- a
"Memento Mori "
Some there were in the years gone by,
Youthful and fair, stately and strong,
With eareless heart and unheeding eye,
Kneelin at ease 'mid the silent throng,
Who sailed as the ashes were laid on their hoow
Little they reeked 'twould be heaped there nowt
Mitrr. have fallen, wer fro itted away,
Overl them eall the daust gthers fut-
The stronget ad weakest, the ild of e da, -
The sire woe e are full four score nd m parst,
As their footsteps pus over the unlighted land,
May be chilled to the heart by Death's ptilem hand
Dust! Dustt Why shrink from its touch?
We preang from its folds in the dim long-go;
'Twill ever us all in the ae to be,
Hepr'ed o' ou hrt hen our pooer heads e low -
Then scorn not the lessons these ashes simpot,
"Unto duast" we return when life's fores depart.
Dutl Drust It is scattered abroaed,
Far over the earth, deep under the sea
l be gthered ain on theat beautiful shore
wsheell of God's creatures sembled shall be
To reeive from His hands these grmenuts aof clay
Which each spirit wore through Time's floeting day
Garments of Clay! Oh, what shall they be?
Shining with glory or darkened with shame?
Look wellma to it now--their fahion moust be
Ase the dee o r lierd be the rmea
Then if we would shape them to beauty and bloom,
Remember the warning that speaks from the tomb:
List of the words, let them sink in your soul,
M e prmaet there tbn this dusart on you bow;
Not for your sorrow, not for your dole
Are them terrible words brethed over you now-
This warning from man, this dust from the sod
May gule you through life, may upift you to God!
