THlE I'AIISH FAIR? Will an y cne be so kind as to in-' form us what has happened to the St. Landry Parish Fair As sociation? Can it be possible that all the trumpeting and pa triotic speeches of enthusiastic citizens have accomplished naught? Are St. Landry farm ers to be deprived of the priv ileges which farmers of other pro gressive parishes en joy ? In short, will St. Landry ever have a parish fair? Some two months ago a move ment was launched to organize the St. Landry Parish Fair As sociation and every indication pointed to the ultimate suc cess of this organization. A oresident, a secretary. a board' of directors and other officers were elected. To these, to whom the future of the parish fair was entrusted by those will ing to subscribe money for the benefit of the farmers of this parish, to these the Clarion and the people of St. Landry would ask them whether they intend to do anything? We realize the fact that the organization of such a body means a great deal of work with no pay, but we also realize. the fact that public spirited men, who signify their intention to work in this manner, should not give up before their task is ac complished. The time is short, October is now at hand and no definite step has been taken rel ative to the parish fair. The Clarion has promised the gentle men at the head of the proposed St. Landry Parish Fair Associa tion all the assistance it can ren der in promoting the interest of this organization, and it stands ready to-day to fulfil its promise -nay, it wants to know, in be half of the St. Landry farmers whether those who have prom ised to do so much really intend to fulfil their promises? The time for action is now. We have already talked too much on this subject and the day will come that the farmers of St. Landry will have no more con fidence in the people of this city who start such a move and al low it to dwindle down to noth ing before the initiative step is taken. We should think that it is high time for the members of the board of directors of the St. Lan dry Parish Fair Association as semble and acquaint the anxious public with their intention. St. Landry is supposed to hold its fair during the middle of Octo ber. consequently if we are bent upin having an agricultural snow in this city it is high time that we stop tooting our horn and get down to work. Let us all get together on this matter and see if we cannot ac complish something after these twenty years of "gasing." WE NEEI) A BAND. Hardly one citizen of Opelou sas will deny that this city needs a brass band. The weekly concerts given on the Courthouse square by tilh. Opelousas band. which recently' disbanded on account of having no leader, were becoming very nopular-- they afforded a recr-ea to the peoopc of this city and it is to be re-,iretted that we h":ve keen unab'e to re-organize this uand, \vhic&ý already had made such wonderful progress. The M'aior and member: of Ihe board ,f Aldermen have al .ady signified their intention of appropriating a small sum of money to the Opelousas band, in order that a band master can be i secured. They have all realized t that the Friday night concerts( have placed a damper upon the feelings of many Opelousas peo ple, nay many country people, who were in the custom of driving here in buggies and automobiles. Let the business men assist t Mr. White and others in re-or- f ganizing the band and within i the next few days an able band t leader can easily be secured for I a very nominal salary. o The dream of a three months war seems to have been blasted, v as those German soldiers .seem to be :'eady to die rath2r than :d iow the Frencl: ant Engii.h go to through to Berlin, and the same 1 p av be said abo`at thos men n :ightin;z against the -:Russian Bear in the East Prussian district. v FATHER 0. WYNHOVEN VISITS OPELOUSAS Distinguished Morning Star Editor Delivers Address to Catholic Congregation. Rev. Father B. Wynhoven, of New Orleans, the dis tinguished editor of the Morn ing Star, official Catholic organ of the Archdiocese of New Or leans, was a visitor to this city on last Sunday and delivered a forceful address on "Education without Religion." Father Wynhoven, who is one of the best posted men on this. subject in the South pointed out that education without religion was a farce, a blow to civiliza tion. The distinguished prelate argued that no matter of what religious belief one should attend school where he can be taught. not only the fundamental princi ples of education but be taught that religion is the true basis of: all education. He quoted thel opinion of some of the most dis tinguished educators in the United States on this subject, all agreeing that "Education with out Religion" was not education whatever, buta knock at civiliza tion. Among those whom Fath er Wynhoven mentioned were some of the most prominent Protestant clergies and laymen in the United States. The sermon delivered by the widely known editor of the Morning Star was received with a great deal of interest by the several hundred people who at tended the Catholic Church on last Sunday morning. Mrs. Porter Dies Suddenly Mrs. C. M. Porter, wife of the well known potato buyer, of this city, died at her home on Thurs day afternoon, after she had been considered out of danger by the family physician. Mr. Por ter who had been assured that his wife was not in danger had gone to attend to business in Port Barre when he was told of the serious condition of his wife. Mrs. Porter has made many friends in this city, since the family moved here a few years back. Her death came as a shock to the entire oommunity. She leaves behind her husband and three girls, besides hosts of friends to mourn her departure. i.
