They say he has given no in- I dication of changing his mind about a not resigning, and is proceeding with the affairs of the goverment c with all equanimity. They add that he regards as prob able intervention by the United t States, and an order was sent today t to the State governors to report im mediately how many soldiers they can have ready at once. The official explanation of this is that it is merely part of the plan announced in a recent decree increasing the army to 150,000 men. The departure of Americans from Mexico continues, although in de creasing numbers, which indicates that the great majority of those in tending to leave already have gone. A train for Vera Cruz with scores of refugees, aboard was held up to night in, the freight yards. by the -burning of several oil tanks. Invitations to the opening of the Mexican Congress have been sent to the diplomatic corps. The American charge d'affaires. Nelson O'Shaugh nessy, dined tonight with Sir Lionel Carden at the first official dinner given by the British minister. No instructions from Washington have beeni received at the embassy, according to. the charge, who is re porting daily to the State Depart ment, on political conditions there. S Fearing that a blockade may be ) established coincident with the in stallation of Congress on Thursday, ., the officials at- the national palace ~ are showing anxiety regarding the shipment of, 15,000 rifles due at Vera 5 Cruz tomorrow. The recruiting by sonscription is i being carried on vigorously and ~ there is little doubt that the num ber of men now ready for service is , greater than the supply of rifles. ý Failure to land this shipment would Sbe embarrassing to the government. The committees of the new Con gress had under consideration for several hours today Jthe credentials of the,new members. President Hu erti is said to be preparing his mes sage for delivery on Thursday. There was a noticeable relaxation from the tension of the past few days, owing to the cessation of the -rumors that the embassy was about to leave and indications that no im mediate' action was intended a. Vera Cruz., A Faree and a Failure. All righteous minded, sober think- 0 ing people, are no doubt amazed to v learn that a number of the Consti- t tutional Convention delegates are t now doing their utmost to turn the convention into an unlimited body to legislate into the Constitution any and all matters that suits their in dividual whims and fancies. Unless checked by the majority ,the eoq vention will amount to a farce and Sa factare.--Guardian Journal.

There was duri ie progress of the State Fair of Iouisiana, in the exposition building, a demonstration by the ladies of the Prohibition League which left a lasting impres sion on the visitors, men and wom en, by whom it was viewed. As a comparison by contrast there was exhibited on a table assorted groceries for a small family use ag gregating $7.80 a week and repre senting the waste of this amount consumed in intoxicants by the in dividual. From this waste the fam ily was deprived of its needs. From this waste the saloon is the only beneficiary. From this waste homes are wrecked and drunkards in creased. But this is not the only curse. It was demonstrated by an appalling official death record of the victims of intoxicants, trans mitted from the father to several generations. Each demonstration was exemplified'with the figures of children and with illustrations that challenged any contradiction result-4 ing from the e'il of intemperance. The Caliborne Parish Fair. the As is indicated by publication in the Guardian Journal's issue .of Nov. 19, the Claiborne Parish Fair Association .is considering a prob- r able dissolution. At a meeting of the association held Friday, as re- fm ported," "It was found that the out- in4 standing premiums awarded by the trt association and remaining unpaid he amount to about $700, and the: debt ve which the individual members as sumed, borrowed from the bank, is de $400." gl This embarrassment of the Clai- pg borne Parish Fair Association has of been experienced by similar associ at.ions,. Foi instance the Fair Asso Ciation of 8hreveport was involved in a |Ios aggregating about $5,000, but this indebtedness was finally en liquidated. Until last year and this nc .year the State Fair Association has W operated at a loss, but the directors of were never deterred and maintained N; the qrganization with "gritty" de- d1 Sterminiation. It is not expected that in any pecuniary profit will ever be al r' derived by the directors. The asso- or ciation was devised to encourage S - fnd to promote the agricultural in- bl = terests of the State. fl -It considering the issue whether 84 I thin association shall dissolve or w continue, the Guardian Journal's ,r position should be endorsed unqual ifiedly: s "The Guardian Journal is not in n favor of abandoning our annual y fairs. They have done much to- c ~twards developing the resources of d ' this parish and it will be a back Ie ward step notat all in keeping with ! the progress of our people and the d necessitiesa.of the times. However, our readers are well aware of the views this paper holds in regard to such matters, and we hope a large number will be in attendance at the I Id public meeting above referred to I id and that satisfactory arrangements -" will be made to continue our annual 1- fair, which has won the first or sec of od premium at the State Fair for id several years." ve id SNot in the Owl Club.

L Iberville g-ntinel: If a yourn girl reads what, is weak and false and foolish, she will speak false and TI foolish; but if it is true, tender and inspiring, then something of its truth and tenderness will glow into her soul and become a part of her very self. The boy who reads deeds of manliness, of bravery and noble deeds, feels the spirit of emulation glow within him, and the seed is planted which will bring forth fruit of pure endeavor and exalted life.
