THURSDAY. JUNI 10. 1897. The Joint Celebration of the S. A. K, and I. L S. On last Monday night the spacious Auditorium at the Normal was til'ed io overflowing by an audience that was remarkable in many ways It was com posed of intelligent and reflued people who listened intently to the long pro gram, and whose resoeetful and inter ested attention was a matter of com ment by many of our most distinguish ed visitors who said they had never seen so large an assemblage of people keep such strict quiet throughout any kind of a performance, and it proved the high appreciation and keen interest that i s felt in the Normal School and wnicli satisfied them, that this local pride and interest were the key note of its remark able growth and success. A word about the decorations of the large stege. Overhead were intertwin ed garlands of evergreen, nud the colors of the two societies. Great pois of rare palms and ferns were tastefully grouped about and a background of graceful palmettos and vines with the two handsome banners of the S. A. K's und E. L. S's. completed the artistic decorations which were planned and es cuted by Miss Morns. Promptly at 8:30 tbe following program was given: Prayer—by Rev. J. C. SHgti.

The marble court echoed many voices, Oftho.se who sigh, and those who sing A multitude, bcai ing crowns or crosses There, sought the presence of the King. One day, amid the throng, on suppliant knee About the throne, an artist bowed, Waiting, somewhat removed, to make lus plea And though he knelt, his mien was proud His brow, with tender pencilling» of blue, Was crowned with anrealeof hair That gleaned like bronze, dashed o'er with golden hue Like that we ti.nl in paintings rare. "What wilt thou have?'' the kindly monarch said "The gift thou senkest of me. name!" The youth, with brave unliftiug of his head Answered: "My sovereign give me, Fame '' So like the wandering of a distraight mind Or like the buffoon's ill-timed jest— Tbe monarch frowned, then half inclined Towards him, who made the strange request. "I am not leagued with Fame, and have tin art 'To woo her smiles to shiue on thee. Powerless am 1 to win her fickle heart. Anil give to thee, though, King l be." "Nay, my lord; I would by brave en deavor, Paint thee, a picture for thy walls God gave the Art. ami my brush is clever, I pledge thee, t'wiK adorn thy halts." Hupe, ambushed in cheeks, that pale and flush, Frida, flashed exultant in dark eyes— Over the great court, fell a sudden hush, Tbe King, with mocking laugn replies. "Is Fame, then to thee, such a paltry thing That 'tis valued by tnee no more Is it but idle praise that nobles sing? Or the light tuat shines from palace door? K, io of i s But paint, if thou wilt, for this classic wall A picture, from thy life, thy heart The theme, me thiuks, is fair enough to call For exercise of all thy art." The King half jested, but the artist passed Adown the noisy court, and smiled. As if some happy thought of conscious power. And victory, his sodl beguiled. "I shall paint a picture of Love," he said "Of Love, purer than angel's eves!" In a maiden's smile, and lips ruby red, The artist's inspiration lies. He held her close, encircled in strong arms, And kissed her eyes, her lips, her cheek And whispered, "Could I portray half thy charms My picture, would of Heaven speak." Tliolight poured in the window and fell Like a sudden glimpse of glory Where the artist worked, striving to tell O11 canvass, the old, old story. i T'was a joy.dashod gem; e'en the shadows lav Impasted, with gleams of brigut gold. The light of jasper walls, and dawn of day, The shining canvass seemed to hold. Melhinks, of all Life's wonderful stories, The story of Lo"e is the best. If we worthily picture its glories We can live, without all the rest. Oh ! who has not painted Love's sweet picture Where the gold, is unmixed with gray? Where the light is a reflex of Heaven, And the blue skies, are copied from May? A year hail come aud gone, with smiles an.l sighs Emptied its store of bitter swe-it "But just another day," the artist cries "Aud my picture will be complete !" "But one more day; thou will I »how the King," "Oh ! haste thee, to the palace now. My love !" the maiden idoad, and haste to bring Fame's laurels bound about tliou brow," 'Wait, my own, and 011 tha glad to-mor row, ' Great joy shall chase away thy fears", But the dawn—alas!* brought a sadden sorrow Aud Ailed his happv heart, with tears Fulfillment near at hand eludes his grasp And through Joy's «mldeu netting slips. His up held only dregs, and Hope's fair fruit Quick turned to ashes on his lips. Gone was the teuderlove, the sunny eves. That, beamed upon his life, ere this. Ilis inspiration fair, his embrace flies. Forsakes him, for another's kiss. His picture stood and mocked him with its light. So beautiful was pictured here, The story of his love life "Oh, so bright The world had been, and now so drear. He questioned : "Had Love been so fair Had brush and colors proved uutriie?" And his new vision, tinted by despair, Fonud fault, with every tender hue. Some men, whose hearts are trodded un der loot By fate, will writhe and bend. Then spring erect, aud taken firmer hold On Life, and work some noble end. He took his brush again, but seemed to blight With every touch. With black and gray He painted out the gold—subdued the ne paipf ' ^Vorked brked shadows, where the silver lay. Each day that crept into the rears ho stoml, Paintiug the subtle phases of his life, Ills storied canvas told of ill and good. Of storms and calms, ot peace aud strife. Tis no slight task, to picture e'en one day. Our colois, with onv moods we change, 1-or morning's smile will mock tbe even ing's sigh, To-day, makes yesterday seem strange. But Love, came never more—His youth had passed. And with it Youth's fair dreams. Oh ! rarely silver light, or flash of gold Across ni8 sombre canvass gleams. Fr ° woki **** envt> 0f LoVe * Ambition His innocent desire for Fame, Had been, like phosphorescent light at sea Compared with this Ambitions fame. 1 At «Very setting of the Sun, lie cried "To-morrow! will my work lie done. The King chull praise, and I alone, shall wear The royal guerdon, Art ha? won. "file court alul King, alike shall bend and yield Sweet homage to my wondrous pow'r. Oil long the years, that. 1 have labored here Awaiting the triumphant hour." But every morn that dawacil, brought discontent With theme and tints of yesterday, Until an aged man, trembling, worn and bent With furrowed face and locks of gray. Cried: "Oh ! there will be no to-morrow here,— To bring me Hope's fruition sweet !" Then they folded his hands, and closed his eyes On his picture, not vet comple e. AUDI E McG RAT H L E E, Baton Rouge, La., Sometimes (he most careful women are the most careless. Many a woman bundles herself up, to keep out sickness, when she is neglecting the very worst sickness that can come to a woman. She allows a slight disorder to become worse, to slowiy sap her vitality. The little pain and the other slight indica tions of trouble seem to her unimport ant. She goes on, with increasing suf fering, until life itself becomes a drag. Nervousness, "sinking spells," diges tive disturbances, and fifty other com plications may arise from the derange ment of the organs distinctly feminine. Over thirty years ago, the need for a re liable remedy for so-called "female complaints" was recognized bv Dr. R. V. Fierce, then, as now, chief consult ing physician to the World's Dispensary and Invalids' Hotel, at Buffalo. >i. Y. lie prepared Dr. Fierce's Favorite Pre seriptiou, the most wonderfully effec tive remedy that has ever been used for such maladies.

Editor Enterprise: "Some books are lies from end to end. And some great lies were never penned, Even minuter» they have been kenned, In holy rapture, A rousing fib at times to vend, Aud nail it with the scripture." The ethical natures of the community were very much shocked last week In the profane, indecent and immoral lan guage used by the Rev. (?) Win. Currie and Dr. Henry McKane, of St. Maurice, in the pulpit of the Methodist Church of this place. They cursed everyone who does not believe inj their sanctification) doctrine straight into hell. They prayed for God to shake over hell every person who does not believe in their nefarious doctrine. They con demned and ordered into Dell ever)'* person who touches a card or takes a drink of whiskey, giving them no chance of an appeal to the throne of God. They stated repeatedly that any man who plays a social game of cards will »teal anything. Currie gave his own experience as an example, by say ing he "tried all one night to steal at ace." He claimed that every man who indulges in the game, is a thief because he had lysmn one. Every Christian man was advised leave his wife unless she professes sane tilieation and pure holiness and obeyc him strictly, it being a conditio sine oua non of her reaching heaven. An he was further admonished that hell i too good a place for him unless he lived his entire life without sin, temptation or wrinkle, and accepted their belief that they were better than Christ himself, All this was taken evm g ratio sali», but when they began to impeach the char acter of all ladies who .attend parties or balls, and declared that any lady who dances is a "licentious rake,'' the better class of men here were very much in censed at such damnable doctrine, and fanatical lies. While allowing them to pass this time, we take jtbis opportunity of warning Currie and" McKane that if they ever preach such heresies here again they will be summarily dealt with The sermons of the Rev". Mr. Sligh are highly appreciated by all and enjoys the respect of the".entire com munity.
