"REMEMBER THE MAINE."
Our proudest ship she glides
From out her home-land bay,
Blue waters wash the whitened sides
While like the middle-day.
Over the Scrambling billows speeds
The bonniest craft o'er all Atlantic's
In her we'd put true steel,
With her we'd sailed true men
Men true from crop to heel,
(We'll ship as good again!)
Into the rolling waters plowed oui
Into the open jaws of Scarlet Spain.
Upon Havana's bay
Six thousand tons of faith-
As calm as Truth she lay;
The Lie slunk underneath.
Mindful of all save self, beloved
Two strong avengers leave the crim
Sleep deep, our boys in blue,
Nor fear, nor care they feel,
And dream brave dreams of yon
Their great white home of steel.
The pall of night folds o'er our cher
ished Maine .
A devil's paw ignites a dcvil's train.
Brothers that blood still sticks!
Each of us owned the Maine;
Each of the two-sixty-six
Was a sun of each of us slain.
Then rest thee well, our vanished
Spilt blood but swells the open vein.
Now, Heavenly Father, farther us,
That hearts and spirits strong
Shall .:slh from earth their Auurder
Repay the slaughtered's wrong.
Accept those loyal souls aboard the
Succeed the Devil's by a holier reign.
--John Giblon, in Colliers Weekly.

We had quite a refreshing rain last
Friday. All kinds of vegetation seem
to be greatly benefitted by it.
The schooner M. L. Weaver
brought a load of flour and other
provisions from Galveston this week.
The town of Lake Arthur has been
the scene of several skirmishes lately
which produced a little excitement
but did not result seriously.
Mr. J. G. Laurents accompanied
by his daughter and mother left
Tuesday morning to attend the com
mencement of the Crowley college.
The canal at Klondike, the new
settlement, has been practically com
pleted and pumping will soon begin
in earnest there. Nearly al the rice

FOUL MURDER IN CALCASIEU.
Dr. John C. Lyons, a prominent
young p1hysician located at Edgewood
and a son of Dr. E. J. Lyons, of this
city, was run over and killed by a
train on the Kansas City, Pittsburg
and Gulf Railroad, near DeQuincy,
last Sunday evening about five
o'clock. D)r. E. J. Lyons was in
formed of the terrible death of his
son, and in company with the parish
Coroner J. G. Martin, left on the
midnight train' for the scene and
brought the remains to this city and
prepared for burial.
Strong supposition was that Dr,
Lyons was foully dealt with and
placed on the railroad track so that
tlhe first train would be credited with
the deed and the true murderer go
Coroner Martin held a post mor
tem examination of the remains, and
on Motlday night the coroner's jury
went to the scene of the killing.
There is no doubt that the deceased
was foully dealt with, but unable to
fix the responsibility on any person
Dr. Lyons swore out affidavits
against Mary Ashworth. W. T. Shultz
and E. T. Jones as being responsible
for the death of his son. The prison
ers have been arrested and are in jail
awaiting a lpreliminary examination.

"-Ycu mIst file your application in
the regular way, with the offiCer in
charge," replied the surgeon.
'I haven't time to do that just
now," the stranger replied. '"Why
can't you take a look at me and see
what my chances are, any way? It's
very important that I shold know."
"Well take off your coat and vest
and let me listen to your heart the
The examinition was very short.
"Ah," said the surgeon, after he
had listened for a momnent, "there
isn't any use going on with your case.
You'll never do. Why, you might
almost as well have no heart at all."
"I'urrah for war!" yelled the man
who had been rejected, as he pulled
on his coat and hurried into the
street; "War! Whr! War! Down
with the cowards who don't want
blood! Hurrah for the crush of
matter and the wreck of worlds!"-
Lehlanc's bill to prohibit the de
tention of passengers at the entrance
of passenger coaches by means of
gates or gatemen, under penalty of a
fine of $10 to $100 was taken up, a
few days ago, by the house judiciary
committee. General Passenger Agent
S. F. B. Morse, of the Southern Pa
ciIic Railroad took the floor in de
fence of the gate system and was ably
supported by many prominent men
from all parts of the southwest sec
tion of Louisiana. It was contended
that fifteen-sixteenths of the people
were opposed to the system. But to
crown all. it seems that State Treas
urer Fournet got an impromptu bath
the other day while waiting to show
his ticket and Judge Sims had a new
straw hat ruined.
Notwitstanding the hard times,
sealskins are worn the year round
by the seals. ,
