Rapid Levee Building.
Warned by pat experience the
levee Cotumissioners throughout
Louislina are expediting work in
every way possible, so as to be ready
for early high water. Ifwill be re
membere:l that in old days the work
was generally so delayed f;omn many
causes that the fl ood caught us un
prepared and with many levees in a
half completed condition, the water
standing against theam, while the
levee laborers were still at work.
We have steadily improved on
that each year, but even of late the
levees were completed only a shot 1

pleted by Dec. 1, and will be in a
splendid conditi.ni to withstand '"a
big river."
The most important piece of
work in the district, the Wyly cre
vasse levee, ,aq completed Oct. 18.
It is 4637 fet:t long, cotains 135,000
cubic yard, of earth and averages
13 feet. in height, with a ditch 8 feet
deep, 12 feet wide at :op and 4 at
the bottom.
'T'ie -contract for closing this
break was let to S. L. James & Co.,
on July 21, but owing to a di-ptute
as to the location of the levee, work
was not begun on it until Aug. 7,

"Accursed of Heaven."
The San Antonia ('l'Texas) Express
editor has been "roasted alive" by
the Loutsiana Press for his contempt
able slur found below. He takes
the late storm as a text, and de
livers the following tiradle against
Louisiaua, claiming that the terrible
disaster was a visitation of Provi
dence on account of the sins of the
peoprle:
'-The terrile stormn which recent
ly caused such terrible destruction
of life and property in Louisiana
serves to call attention to the fact
that the Pelican State is subject to
about every plague known to other
lands, and to some peculiarly its
own. The seven vials of St. John
seeml to have been poured out up-n
it, the curse ot heaven to rest ever
upon its people. It is the homne of
the flood and the storm the abhiding
place of disea-e and death. * *
Destructive overflows are as comu
mion in Louisiana as cyclones in
Kanlasn, and far more destructive.
The coast country for a distaince of
from twenty to sixty miiles inland
is one vast unhealthy swamtp, liable
at any time to be swept by the
waves of the ocean. The low, flat
surface of the State, its thousands
of stagnant bayous, its intolerable
heat. aril excessive rainfall -ranging
from sixty inches in the sou,th to
fifty inches in the north -make
Louisiana the natural homrne of ma
laria andi mosquitos, alligators and
indolence. So, serious do the first
of these two pests become at certainl
seasons that pas.enyer trains cross
ing the State are compelled to steep
doors anid windows closed for the
protection of passengers. Yellow
fever constantly lurks in the
marshes, poisonoumireptiles constant
ly intest the semi-tropical forests
and le,rosy is as comnon as in ,leru
salem or the Hawaiian Island.
Naturally, in such a country, the
inhabitants ,ecomrne enervated, defi
cient in physical vigor, mental
strength and moral stamuina. They
plant, not expecting to real., and
build, doubtful if they will enjoy.
They mark time ty the mighty
floods or yellow fever out-breaks,
and dlrif: -iown the stream of tiimre
like wreckage on the Father of
Waters, grolving more shallow and
.hiftless year by year until carried
off by one of the many curses of
that unhalm y clime. The tact is
that Loulisiana is an uim~nished
country, one which the Lord has not
yet fully pirepared for human habi
tatioa. It has not yet passed the
carboniferous era. Some centuries
hence, when the lakes have teen
transformed into coal he-ls atnd the
sediment carried down by the great
rivers which has buil- up the un
healthy lowland,, when the saurian
has given place to the higher typles
of animal life and the mo-quito and
malaria microbe have been re
duce;l to the minimum, Loutsiana
nay afford happy h omee to a pro
gressive and proslperous people. InI
the mean time it were the part of
wisdoi for those now febre-who
moved inr before the Lordi threw
the coantry open to settlement
-to give o'er their losing hat
tie with fate and tome to Southwest
Texas, a paradise that should have
'been uettlef10iO0 years ago."
If the Lord ever madle a mistake

the coistrwtion of Louisiana.

What Whiskey has Done for a Young i
ian Now in the Penitentiary.
Only a drink ! Only ia hear!
Quly a mother's bitter teairs, only 4]
liferoiued just at its dawn ; only sctal=
ing tears shed in a prison cell by a
young man condemned to suffer a
living death for two long, dreary
years.
That is what whiskey has done for
me! "Oh." some will say, "he de
serves it for being so weak. I could
keep from letting whiskey get the best
of me."
If I have said those words once I
have sail them a hundred times, yet
here I am in my cell in the State
prison writing these lines hoping that
the perusal of them will keep some
young man from ruin.
Unlike most stories. I put the moral
of this one at the beginning-it is:
"Let whiskey and all kinds of 'liquors
alone." Here is my story-.
Thirty years ago I first saw the light
of day in a pleasant home in Connecti
cut. I was brought up by the most
kindest and most indulgent father and
the most loving mother a boy ever had.
I had every advantage that love and
money could procq~e. I had a
thorough college educ lon, and at the
age of 18 was well fitted to commence
the battle of life. Receiving some
money from mi father I started for the
West, I located in a prosperous mining
town in New Mexico and engaged in
the general merchandise bust iis.
For two years I did a splendi1d Iusiness
and acc('mulated quite a respectable
hank acc, unt. As mist olni, nwtrt
will, I w,tnrld t". ge; rie :ii t once
;nt spact'atlriI int ti'ns nwit:- Iti usual
result-at the end of ta yea:r 1 wa: flat
, leke, still I was young, and cl e ..:,d
by my taother's lovi:g cot11l. I coaile
a new start. I took a two years'
course il ;t : ,.hile shop, andll in rict
attention ti. uswess I be .tme a ll'st
class machiniý-t and en2ineer. I
worked :at that trade for a year, .,aved
my money ntid m Ile many frietids.
Th'i,u hl t!,heir i,,fl:,nce, I obbt.titel a
position a- cook-keeper'in a whohlesatl.
house in the East. After I tI:, .,

road as a salesman. It wa- while in
that capacity I took my first drink of
intoxicating liquor. The habit grew
upon nte until I neglected my business
and was discharged. All my fair
weather friends now deserted tme, and
tno one believed in nte but my dear
mother (God bless her. she never lost
faith in her only son.) I went from
place to place until I obtained a posi
lion as reporter on a large newspaper
on the Pacific coast, and by strict at
tention to m) duties I was advanced to
the position of traveling correspondent.
For two years I did not touch a drop
of anything. Last summer I was in
New Orleans. and while there the
temper canme to me and I fell I said
"'a man is a fool if he cannot control
himself." and '"I went out with the
boys." 4
From New Orleans [ went to Lake
Charles. I had often received money
by telegraph, and while in Lake
Charles I c.onceived in my muddled
apology for a brain the idea of writting
the telegram myself--and here let me
state that I was in that condition that
tthe thought of doing wrong never en
tered my mind-I wrote the telegram.
presented it to the cashier of the First
National Bank. He made me an
evasive answer, and like a flash the
enormity of what 1 had done came
upon mi". I left the bank and Lake
Charles at one. I did not receive one
cunt of money. and I did not wait to
see what the cashier would say. I
walked ten miles in the broiling h(,t
sun, and that evening took the train
for the Soutth. At Orange; Tex., the
conductor (having received my de
scription from the sheriff at take!
Charles) put tme off the train anld soon
I was under arrest and placed in jail
at that place. The following day I
was taken back and two days afterward
I was charged with forgery. For a
month I lay in jail and when court con
vened I was taken before the juige.
I plead guilty and received a sentitice
of two years in the petlitentiary. Then
came the agony of remorse, but too
late. My name forever blackened and
disgraced. my poor tnother's heart
broken, and I in a cell with no com
pany but m\ thoughts. D)o I deserve
it? My aniswer is yes; yet the punIsh
ment is hard to bear, not for myself
hut for those who are de;trer to me
than ilfe and who too must suffer my
disgrace.
Now. young man, when the tempter
comes to you with his soft oily tuongue.
saying "oh on can control your appe
tite, you won't let liquor get the best
of your judgment," and all such talk,
tell him he is a liar, and let the'demon
of whi.ske alone.
Ifeel in my heart that my confine
ment here will be of benefit to mle. for
I can truly say that this place beats the
Keeloy cure, and I believe that the
cure is more lasting. If I am permit
tedt, in my nett I will try anti depict
life inside of these grim walls. If
these lines will keep one young man
from throwing himself away by. drink
ing I shall be amply repaid for telling
my history.

Weekiod eekobswehad been atthe

And bore without flinching the battle's
feree brunt,
Till, shattered and weary, we needed
repose
Ere we met in death straggle our number'
less foes.
Ourknapsacks were empty, our uniforms
worn.
Our feet from long marching, were naked
and torn ;
But not a man grumbled in the rank or the
file.
W e bore all our hardships with a joke and
a smile,
For Jackson was with us, and. under his
eye,
Each soldier determined to do or to die.
That evening old Jack had us out on re
view,
When aglance down the line showed us all
something new
Eighty-seven young boys front old Balti
more,
Who had run the blockade and that day
joined our corps.
Their clothes were resplendent, all new
spick and span
'Twas plain that a tailor had measured each
man.
When we learned who they were what a
shout we did raise I
How we cheered our new allies, the "Balti
more Grays I"
There were Lightfoots and Carters, and
Howards and Kanes,
The grandsons of Carroll, the nephews of
Gaines;
And as the brave boys dressed up in a row,
You could see the pure blood of the proud
Hi uguenot.
But we were old vets of Stonewall's sri
gade;
We'd been tightening so long that war
eened a crade.
And snome of ts laughed at the younLgsters
so gay
Who hat (cone to the 'attle as if coming to
And all ittrough the camp you could heat

Cry. "Hullo. tong roosters !" and "lia,,di

But thie toy s Iouk it bravely, and heartily

Till one ragged soldier, wore holder than
ta:e rest.
Fired off this rough joke, which we all
I hought the best:
"BRoyr. vou'd better go home ; 'ti: getti: g
quite late."
i':Ten ,:te girlis::-fia.' d captainu poke up.
:ld said. "-Watt !"
They did'at wait long, for the very next
day
We were ordered right of to the thick of
the fray ;
For early that morning we'd heaid the dull
roar
Of the guns of our foeman on Rapidan's
shore,
And all of us knew, with old Jack in com
mand,
If fighting was near him. he'd at once take
a hand.
And, sure enough, soon marching orders
we got,
And we swung down the road In 'foot-eaval
ry" trot.
The boys were behind us. I fell to the rear,
To see how the youngsters on march would
appea'.
Their files were close up. their marehin
was true;
I reported to Stonewall. "Yes, general,
they'll do."
In a tew minutes more the action began.
We met the first abock. for we were thevan;
But we stood to cur ranks like oaks of the
field,
For Stonewall's brigade never knew how
to yield.
Upon us. however, a battery played,
And huge gaps in our ranks were now and
then made,
Till Jackson commanded a charge up the
hill.
We ch irged-in a moment the cannon were
still.
Jackson said to the Grays, "Such valor
you've shown.
You'll veterans be ere your beards are full
grown;
In this. your first action, you've proved
yourselves bold;
I'll stationi you here-these guns you must
bold."
Then the girlish-laced captain, so straighl
and so tall,
Saluted. and said. "You'll here find us all,
For, wherever stationed, this coml any
stays."
How we laughed. how we cheerea the bold
Baltimore Grays !
But the red tide of battle around us still
flowed.
And we followed our leader.as onward he
rode.
Cried "(tood-by" to the boys; "take ears
of tite guns
We'll relieve you as soon as the enemy
runs."
Ah. yes. indeed I soon the brave boys wer

But not in the manner we all had believed
Alas, the sisters who weep and the mothers
pine
For the loved and the lost of the Marylanl

But some fatal blunder our left was ex
posed.
And by thousands of Federals the boys
were enclosed:
They asked for no quarter, their Iaryland
blood
E.ever dreamed of surrenler-they fei
where they stood.
We heard in the distance the firing anc:
And double quicked back to the help ol
the boys.
The guns were soon ours, but oh, what
sight I
Every Baltimore boy had been killed in tbe
Save the girish-faced captain, and he
scar e alive,
When he saw us around him he seemedtt
revive, -
And snmilid when we told him the field hat

And the Baltimore Grays had saved ever,

Then Stonewall road up and endeavored t<
speak.
Bit his utterance was choked and dowt
his bronzed cheek
The hot tears fowed, as he gased on t'L
dead.
"God pity their mothers and sisteres !" hi
Then, dismounting, he knelt on thbblood
sodden eand,
And prayed while he held the dying boy'I
hand;
The gallant young hero said, "General, 1
knew
That the Grays io your orders would always
be true;
You'll je et a Gray Irom our nal rol
Look around you my general-yoa'lli liher

The blood glshed from his mouth, hisl hea
A inn on his hreast
And the girheh-faced captal lay deed with

The Shreveport Progress com
menting on the appointment of
Lieutenant-Governor Parlange to
the Supreme Judgeship says respect
ing the action of Senator Hiram
H. Lott:
Now we have it that Senator
Iliram pretends great respect, love
and veneration for the farmers, is
iindeed in the Senate by the grace
of their votes; but is very, very
absent mindel and always forgets
on which side of a question, bill or
election his farmer friends' inlteests
lie, and invariably lands on the op.
posite shore. In fact we believe
Uncle Hiram is oily, very oily, and
his desire to remain in the Senate
for the dear people's sake is a simln.
iatiou which is well greased with
the desire to assist frienris who love
the agriculturalists and laboring
people as do( the bankers of Wall
street. But it won't do, Uncle
Hiram! you will take that seat
promptly on the assembling of the
next Legislature. Now don't be
unruly and indignant, nor flash up
with the patriotic desire to do your
duty, serve your country and im
molate your ambition on the altar,
of your country, because it won't
go down. So just behave yourself,
act like a man and enjoy the honors
of the Lieutenant-Governor's office.
Why, Uncle Hiram! the average
man of intelligence would feel
highly complinientcd at having this
position tendered him, and your
modesty in declining deprires your
relations of being able to boast of a
kinsman who is a LieutenantOover
sor.
Friend Progress you should not
speak of a brother member in no
such a fashion as this, don't you
know.
