Wednesday afternoon people frog all inaginable directions poured int our little city to witness the annum parade of the Fire Department. Th day was ideal and lovlier aeathe could not have been wished for, ant in'faAt everything existid as was de sired that the occ sdoi might be success in every deta:l. The stree were crowded with hundreds of peo pie who gathered here to do honor ti . our brave and noble firenen. Thl parade w:is magnificent in every res pect and the most brhl!iant in thi l hiitorv of th Fire Deietrtment. Th. hose carri ges and trucks of the dif fereut compaiocs were beautifully 7 decorated and presented a perfec picture of loveliness. The route over which the parade passed were strewn with flowers o all varieties and mothers, wives sister: and maidens who looked like the firs blush of spring all vied with one at other in doing honor and payint * tribute to our gallant boys. Promptly at four o'clock the differ ent comp'anies of the Fire Department headed by Hon. John D. Shaffer, o Terrehoune, fell in line and ead headed by a brass band marched ove the route published in oar last issue 0 Not one solitary hitch was oceasione: throughout the eve ting which fac intersified every one all the more with greater joy and gayness. Th' Hilme Hook and Ladder Cu, No. 1, had their truck beautifully tecor:ted with flowers. From the cea tre rope a pyramid and on the pyramit beautiful li. ies were blooming in al there grncefuhness. The truck of the Thibodaux Buc kdt Brigade No. 1, was very skilfully and prettily arranged with large ret s "nd white ttsai while the truck itsel was draped in dark blue material Miss Hilda Itiviere and Roiatd Braud were mounted on the truck and pre y sented an almost perfect picture of happiness and contentment. Upon the truck of the Thibodaui tower several spans high. The tower was very tastefully covered over wit! red roses. A real rubber hose encir cled the tower and little Claude Celes tin handled the nozzle which wat sending forth a beautiful spray of artificial water, silver lake in appear ance, upon two little fairies Ethel Bourg and Odette Riviere who wera quietly and happily seated io their beautifully arranged castle down be low. Taese two little girls beautifu in their innocence called forth frog the spectators many expression of admiration. In the second story of the towel were Benedict Oschwald and Henry Pierson who were handling the lad ders. Adl three of the little boys wht appeared on this truck looked like brave and genuine little firemen. The wheels of the truck itself were garlanded with gold and silver. The Brooklyn Hose Co. No. turned out with the No. l's and comi in for their share of praise. They were represented on the staff of the Grand Marsha! by Mr. E. P. Sevia Jr. The Ihose Carriage of the Protecto: Fire Co. No. 2 was indeed magtiif cently and artistically decorated Part of the decorations represented gorgeous and brilhiatat Sun burst whicl Swas seen to advantage whenever thin sun beams fell upon it. The sides 01 the truck were ornamented with flow .. era of all description. Upon this Hlose Carriage sat litth ' Mlatilde Chol, queen like la ways sur lovely in appearance. Gracefullg did she receive and return the saluta 1 toions of the multitude who cast theil Ladmiring eyes upon her. After the parade was over thin companies marched over to the Y. Ml B.

Maidens and Matrons et 1e, Wa had something to say recentl, about 'Lovers and Huehands," anm " we resume the line of dieusrsion ii ly order to suggest sonie diatinguirhin1 characteristies of their feminine coon id terparts, maidens ant matrons. all In the first place, all miidvns are "in love." They do not know it, hut c- their gnaidiau angels do. From tb. ly time a little girl's fancy is brave e enough to ride through her wiudos tif casement upon the mionbe.ims shs al begins to pray, and to expect "tha id prince," first as a green cloak fairy e- with a butterfly helmet, then as puis of sant knight with swerd and spears, fnally as a noble outlaw of modern ix times_ And-it is.s (ont..ýpý.".iuJ. er change this masculine gew.gaw of hei th imagination for a real over with horn r- buttons on his coat. - Meanwhile the real lover is the on a ly peraon particularly interested iii of her. To the rest of us she is a fami r- liar type-merely a woman in a statE tel of composition, chaotic now witl re tears and laughter and little rag.ioll ir passions, but to become eventual'y a - staid and portly matron with children 'u to bless her and a husband to praise 'm her. But to the lover she is the most rf refreshing miracle in creation-a paraphrase of heaven, who defies dc er finition. And so illusive is she that ry even in her presence he is still re 1- mote. Yet being absent, she is oniiii ho present. The swift wing of her spir ke it spreads a shadow at his feet nit makes a bit of his earth divine; it re falls upon his mountain tops ani there is a Sabath in his week o 3 love. But if it sweeps through hip me little valley of dreams in the moon ey light he is a pagan once more, a fani he with goatears, listening u'nder h. in windiw, and ready to whlst'e all th dried nymphs of the ages if only Ii or may see the trailing hem of her gar ifi meat in the bah~oniy over his head. RI Still this power of illudion, this flul la ter of wings peculiar to maiden spir cli its, is contusing to mascaline minds he and keeps the lover forever .sq'imitinc ofat his sky line. He knows her, to bi wsure, but he never knows from wha direction to expect her advent. If hi Lle fixes his eyes upon the crag, she rise ad like a starling out of the meadow Ily But if he looks for her in the dovl in cote she is sure to be in the eagle' rir nest. If this hon- he stilts his iiides cent moon to hers the next it will no he fit. She is once more ao alien, au a uscere little snow bunting petchet [I- upon the frozen ridges of his high D. lanids, cold and ismaceessilile. el1 Bu if he only knew it this is th< 'ht maiden's way of interpieting wisel, 7-. to him.

Loth tng with her most cherished illusion, cale and the fiercer the bombardment the iere more she will enjoy the siege. But afterward she surrenders to diplo. macy. The main condition alway' Insisted upon is an opportunity to m - capitulate gracefully and vietorious'y. And a lack of perception at this mer o.1 idian of the conqueror has parted agar more lovers than the lack of love. It set. is the one particular wherein women lid, make their own distinctions and re. Ioc. fuse to be governed by the advice of ia- men or the mandates of lovers. But if love is a woman's sanctlfiea tion marriage is her mallennlum. T. Once blessed into that happy estate, fue she makes her peace with old fancees, turns her back upon useless vanities and gives herself over to the content pus ment of being finished. And in a sense ske is finished. The hopes and bh ambitions of the m:iiden are swallow. Co. ed up in the hallowed reality of love the and companinship. The wings of hr spirit, so ready for flight, brood now; and her mind is like a honey. ra- comb full of sweet cares. Her loge eal widens into a halo above the erad.e of her children. Henceforth life's on. ly meaning for her will be the parts. tioning of self. And it is to her eter. of nal credit that she is so engrossed ed- with this devotion, this almsgiving to o- posterity, that the symmetry and ic I beauty of her youth fade away with uic out notice or regret. A new creation is in her arms, a new incarnation of the beauty and love. She hears its cry, his and the fate of the new world hangs upon her crowing lips. But it is no wonder that young men are so rarely philosophers. Their mothers never are. And it is not in the milk of women to nourish thoughts. They are probably created tly for other purposes. Yet, if the sun .Id asks n question which the father dares to not answer, the mather always can.

She perpetrates her cut millennium notions in him and sets b'' him at loggerheads with all practical ve forms of iving through the ideally ow of her doctrines. And whether her he teachiaga are more or less effective he depends upon the nature of her child. ry But one thing is certain; she makes is her own soul large and perfect, like a rs, round summ r day, as full of light rn and color as the morning, as serene 'wetacZya.. ,jav la UVbas as* * aer best miniature that God has made. ten Who shall judge her, and who shalt dare to praise her?-Independeut.
