Comanns I c.t:., a ,~o ld rea'.ls this olEe by Aednelso ny'u ua:l O( that week SPRING After a tenacious hold and a serious con test between the seasons winter has finally shade its exit. Spring-balmy, beautiful lovely has made its appearance. "Spring hangs her infant blossoms on the trees. Rocked in the cradle of the western breeze." Nature is clad in emerald, hue, refresh ing to the eye, reinvigorating to the weary body after a long, bitter winter. With the poet whittier we can exclaim! "Tis Spring time in the eastern hills, Like torrents gush the Summer rills; 'I'l rough winters moss and dry dead leaves 'ile bladed grass revives and lives. Pushes the mouldering waste away, And glimpses to the April day." It is asTennyson calls it, "the boyhcod of the years", it is the season of flowers, and song. and poetry, and love. It unbosoms every grace, opens every beauty, turns every heart gay, makes life alive in everything. The lovely garments which -nature dons awaken in the breasts of all pleasurable emo tions. It lightens the mind, gladdens the heart, strengthens, regenerates revivifies the physical man. How perfect and grand is the work of the creator. We cannot appreciate the won derful structure in which we live. It is be yond human comprehension. We stand in awe while considering the magnificent and complicated, yet faultless machinery of the world: mighty in its conception, unerring in its operation, sublime and beautiful in its de sign. It makes man feel more and more as 1 be studies the matchless creations of an In finite Ieing his wetness, his littleness, his 1 insignifcance. As the earthly traveler dur ing his short Journey pauses in his mad, in cessant, weary struggle, and contemplates, the greatness of "nature and nature's God," he becom~ s appalled at life's reality, its aim its purpose, its end. He bows to the great truth: it is God's work. In so doing, how ever, he must not lose sight of the patent fact that all objects, animate and inanimate, have their mission. They were placed here for a purpose which each must carry out. Let him not forget that man is his noblest work, his mission the most serious and im portant. He should so Uve that he may prove that mind and heart are alive to Di-1 vine truths and that he is not unworthy of the Divine Father, who unceasingly and lovingly watches over his children on earth. AMICABLY ADJUSTED. The Railroad companies of New Orleans 1 and their employees have at last settled their differences, and thanks to good judgement and second sober sense, peace reigns supreme in our Southern metropolis. It is indeed a1 happy condition of affairs when employe and employer agree and when each feels that the 1 interest of one is that of the other and when the rule of "live and let live" is carried out to < the letter. Labor and capital should rork a to-gether: one cannot exist without the other. 1 In many States organized capital and t trusts have disregarded the rights of the la- i boring man and trampled underfoot prin- c ciples of equity and justice, and strikes on t part of the laborers were the inevitable con- . sequences. I We hope never to see any strikes in our a State. Wehope to see harmony and peace t prevail Every man should be willing at all p times to make concessions, while maintaining a his rightsandthis we are glad to see has b been done. If differenoes ever arise here we hope to r see them settled satisfactorily to all con- tl cerned. The amicable adjustment of the trouble n an New Orleans is a subject of congratula- n tions all over the State. el The Avoyelle. Btade, edited by Ex-State Superintendent of Public Education A. D. tl Lfargue, uncle of the Editor of this paper, b thus coJ!liuriints on the attitude of the Prt.ei dent on the reciprocity tariff with Cuba: S '-Forty-nine republican congresmen have -promised and agreed to vote against tariff concessionts to Cuba. If they hold out in Sthis determination they will be able by join ing the democrats and co-operating in this - measure. to defeat the administration. Mr. Ro!Roosevelt is weded to tariff concessions and ,. he is using all the power of his high office to bring it about. and it would serve him right - if a bold and determined faction of his party was to frustrate him in his unanmerican ideas. SFor trying, to help the ungrateful Cubans at 4" the cost~ and almost financial ruin of his own - cGjiotrymen he will be made to feel the ,bI wrath of a wronged people. It would have S'oeen better for this country never to have raised a sword in defense of Cuba if she is to e be a thorn in our sides and constant menace k to an important branch of our agri,'ulture and manufacturing interests." The Probate Court of the Dictric-t of !' Columbia is badly in need of the services of a Solomon. An estate valued at $200.000 is involved in the question the court has been n asked to answer. The question is raised by the will of the mother of twins, who was twice married, leaving three children by her first husband and the aforesaid twins. She made a will before the birth of the twins, leaving her estate to her children by her first husband, but providing that should another child be born to her it should be entitled to one-fourth interest in her personal .estate. Then the twine were born, and the mother died without changing the will. Now, the court is asked to decide whether only one of I the twins is entitled to one-fourth the estate, i and if so. which one, and what will be the t share of the other. Or whether the one-' fourth interest should be divided equally by the twins. Wouldn't you .like to have to ' decide the case l THE PRESIDENT AND THE POLITI CIANS. President Roosevelt has before him a good prospect of resembling his dihtinguished predecessor, Grover Cleveland, by splitting his party. The President, in the expression of his strong prejudice against Admiral Schley, of • the navy, and Lieutenant General Miles, of the army, has already antagonized some, promineHt members of the Republican party, and his determined stand in favor of a reduc tion of the tariff on Cuban products has serv-' ed to estrange some others. But the straw that promises to break the ! ' camel's back of bartisan patience is his ap t pointment of Democrats to office in the place of Republicans. It appears that the Presi dent, to use a phrase that has been adopted to characterize the situation, is in a deadlock Swith Senators from a number of States, who are seeking to have the incumbents of re venue collection offices succeeded by other Republicans who, in the judgment of the SSenators, have won recognition because of their service to the party. S Nineteen of these offices are at stake.' SThe President absolutely declines to remove one of the present nineteen occupants, be cause, he says, their records entitle them to reappointment. Two of the offices are in Iowa. One of Stwo was put aside by Senators Allison and l)olliver for Henry Weaver, in whom Senator t Dolliver is specially interested, and these' Senators are greatly worried over the situa tion. Politicians will endure everything done by the President if only he does not interfere with their supposed prerogatives to dispose of the patronage and party spoils of their res pective bailiwicks. Even President Cleve land's determined stand to maintain the credit of the Republic and keep its' money standard up to the highest mark In1 opposition to the efforts of the silver miners1 to depreciate the coined currency, would never have turned the politicians against him, but when he put many places in the i public service under the civil service law, and then refused to let the politicians handle the patronage to suit their own ends, he set them all against him, and then they repudiated, him. President Roosevelt can secure the same results by a persistent course of depriving' . the politicians of their power to hand out pa tronage. A political boss who has no places nor perquisites at his disposal is simply a! nonentitty, and to deprive them of their pow er is an unpardonable sin in the Presidgnt. Mr. Roosevelt, if he wants to be re-elected, would do well to take warning in time and throw himself into the arms of the political bosses.--Picayune. 1t_ CASTORIA _ 7For Infants and Children.
