The hardwood floors and the interior splendor of the finish of the dwelling are a matter of fame. Like most of the California houses, it was constructed with a view of resisting injury by earthquakes. The outside is of wood resting on stone foundations. One of Miss Flood's requirements is that the University Regents shall always keep tlie house in good repair nnd paint it white, its original color. Her wish is that it may appear at least for fifty years exactly as it was when her parents resided within that domestic sanctuary. To every request by Miss Flood the Regents reit erated their desire to comply in spirit and letter. Just what use the Regents will put the mansion to has not been determined, but Miss Flood is to be consulted during her lifetime on all questions. The house is arranged for a summer or winter school ami lor scieiuinc gatiienngs oi various kinds. It will be a country home for the students of the Berkeley Institution. It is cheering to state that this mag nificcut place is The water company stock alone, which is in cluded in the property, yields an annual income of 8,000. It is thought that the Regents will retain the stock, only sell ing the outlying lands and judiciously in vesting the money for the benefit of the The interest will be used university. without drawing on the principal. One peculiar feature in connection with Miss Flood's gift is that this property is in tlie neighborhood of Stanford Uni versity. Miss Flood and Mrs. Leland Stanford are the best of friends, yet that she should rear a rival of the university founded by the late Senator Stanford and fostered by Mrs. Stanford creates no lit tie surprise. Tlie generally accepted theory is that Jennie Flood desired her home to be come a distinctive monument to the memory of her parents, not to be over shadowed by the fame and magnificence of Senator Stanford's great institution at Palo Alto. A portion of the land adjoin estate at Memo Park is ing tlie owned by John W. Mackay, and it is said he may also contribute the property to the State University so handsomely endowed by Miss Flood. Miss Flood's gift was unexpected. None of the Regents dreamed of receiv ing millions for the university. It needed money and new blood, while the Stanford University seemed to be having everything its own way, with the millions of tlie Stanford estate contributing from tune to time to funds already large. Miss Mood is a modest, quiet woman, very sincere and thoughtful, hire her father, whose ability as a financier was arose to Alnine heurhts when John W. Mackay came into the firm with his1 co lossal scheme of developing the bonanza mines of the Coiustock district. When James C. Flood died in Germany, in February, 1889, flags were displayed at half-maon the principal business houses in San Francisco. His estate was valued at 510,000,000. The wonderful story, rivaling the fictions of the Arabian Nights, has often been narrated, yet it is ever fresh and new. It has been told how James C. Flood, a New York boy, went to California in the forties, and, with William S. O'Brien, opened a little refreshment place in San Francisco called "The Auction Lunch." It soon became a famous place for miners. "Tips" and news of importance could be picked up there almost any day by those on the "inside." Mr. Flood, n business man by nature, a good listener, silent, absorbing and industrious, soon possessed mining information of value, and quietly bought shares of stock and interests in mines iu a small way with his limited capital, and the firm began making money. Presently it was whispered that Flood and O'Brien were growing rich. In 1804 John W. Mackay, a practical miner, who used to work in a shipyard in New York and went to the Pacific coast a poor boy to take his chances with the rest of the heroes of '49, entered the comFlood and O'Brien's partner, bination. Walker, retired, and Mr. Mackay, known as "Honest John," and who had become an expert miner ill the mountains of Nevada, earnestly advocated the claims-o- f the Virginia City region. He had studied the Nevada rocks and knew what he was talking about. His advice was followed. In six years they took out in bullion. 200,000,000 nearly Mr. Mackay's judgment and wisdom were marvelously vindicated. Mr. Flood was a natural financier. He saw still more wealth ahead. He projected the Nevada Bank, which became one of the institutions of San Francisco, with a paid up capital of 10,000,000. In 1879 it was reported that Mr. Flood had retired from the stock market. Iu 1880 it was reported that he was about to settle in New York, that he had sold his share in the Bonanza mines to Mr. Mackay. Iu that same year he commenced n building the Flood mansion of stone, on Knob Hill, San Francisco. It stands there today, overlooking the bay and the blue waters of the Golden Gate, like an Italian palace towering on a mountain side. The city stretches away on every hand, covering what were brown desolate hills when Flood and O'Brien, in '49, first began business in their little corner grocery store down by the water front. While millions came to them from the mountains, fortunes vanished ar the bank. The great wheat deal of 1889 involved a loss of millions, and but for Mr, Mackay's speedy return from Europe, some extraordinarily sagacious financiering and the veteran millionaires acting as one man, the losses would have overwhelmed the firm. It is said that a 20,- st dark-brow- RIORDAN'S Graphic Description of the Battles Fought in the Philippines. Five Louisvillu Boys Together and Tlicy Had a Gay Old Time.

It includes a home where Miss Flood has spent much of her life, and through associations she has come to love the place and its surroundings. It is the country home where she found sweet quietude and needed rest. Because she loved it she bestowed it on the great university, evidently fulfilling the wishes of her father, whom she nursed for years, and was" by his side when death came to him at Heidelberg, in Germany. since tlie ueatu ot ner motiier, a year ago, Miss Flood found the greal house too lonely. In former days it was the favorite home of mother nnd daughter and was seldom closed. Since Mrs. Flood's death the doors have been seldom open. The interior has remained undisturbed, Miss Flood preferring to have everything left in the rooms exactly as during her lifetime, and in giving the property to the university she requests that there be no changes made when it is taken possession of by the institution. AH the statuary and priceless works of art are to remain iu place, and the imperial residence is to be preserved as a monument to the memory of her dear mother. This gift of the Meulo Park property came as a surprise to the State University. It includes the mansion, with its ornamental grounds of more than COO acres, and an additional tract of 2,400 acres; and Bear Creek Water Company stock of much value and yielding a steady income. Mr. John W. Mackay, for years associated with Mr. Flood, says that the whole property is worth more than $3,000,000, the mansion itself costing over 1,000,000. It was erected more than twenty years ago and considered among the finest dwellings in the world. It is a palace, standing in the center of a 600-acpark brought to the highest state of perfection by the most skillful landscape gardeners of this country and Europe. Forty men are constantly employed improving the grounds. Menlo Park was always open to the public Any one could drive about in carriages, visiting every point.

Gaither caused a big sensation early this week, but upon investigation it was fouud that there was no truth whatever in the report. Gov. Bradley says all talk of coolness is absolutely unfounded. The Governor further said: "I am reorganizing the State Guard, and of course I can not wait until the regiments now in the volunteer service shall be mustered out in order to reinstate them in their old places in the State Guard service." The Governor declined to be present nt the opening of the Fifth district Republican rally in Louisville Saturday night. Col. Patrick Hecney, of Covington, Tenn., arrived from a three months' tour of Ireland last Friday. On his return trip Col. Heency stopped over in the national capital long enough to persuade an old sweetheart of his to become Mrs. Heeney, and they left for Frankfort, where they are now the guests of Mr. and Mrs. James Heeney, on the South Side. Col. Heeney was much pleased with his trip, notwithstanding the fact that the weather in the old country was exceedingly bad. He says that crops are good and the majority of the people happy. Mr. and Mrs. Heeney left Thursday for Covington, Tenn., where they will make their future home, carrying with them the best wishes of their Host of friends in this city.

It may be of interest to the many read ers ot tlie Kentucky Irish American to know that one of the present State officials will be spared from being side tracked by the Republican in Frankfort. The lucky man is Attorney General Taylor, who is slated as a sure shot for the Gubernatorial nomination. Auditor Stone has discovered that he is not on the Hunter slate and that Treasurer Long is also ineligible to re election, and both will drop quietly back into private life. Commissioner of Agriculture Moore can not win for Treasurer because he is a Bradley supporter. Secretary of State Finley will also quit politics, temporarily at least.

The men all said, "We have no cartridges and a vast horde of the enemy is about us " They were told to go to the line nnd stand there and use the charge at the muzzle of their guns or perish ' there.

From her earliest childhood until her father's death the girl was near to his heart always at his side, an angel to him in misfortune or prosperity, nursing him from city to city tenderly, lovingly caring for him when he was in Europe fighting for life with the aid of renowned physicians. Like all heiresses, Miss Flood was often reported engaged, often about to be married first to some dear acquaintance of her youth, then to some titled gentleman. In 1889 the report was denied that she was engaged to marry J. F. Laubat. Soon after Gen. Grant returned from his tour around the world Miss Flood's engagement to U. S. Grant, Jr., was gossiped. In clubs and social circles in San Francisco it was declared that their mar riage was soon to take place. They were seen together almost daily, took drives and visited theaters and attended, social functions. Seemingly they were the most loving of companions. Suddenly the engage ment was broken, but the cause was never referred to nor debated, and so the Almost immediately the affair ended.

Much of her time is spent in San Fran cisco, in tne I'looa palace on KiioQ.nni, where she devotes herself to literature and art: also to a great, yet almost unknown extent, to charitable work, iu which she finds her only true enjoyment. Mrs. Flood was almost constantly with her daughter and was her companion and friend in the highest sense of the term. Both preferred the country life of their Menlo Park place, and there, free from social restraints nnd responsibilities, they passed their time in profitable seclusion. After Mr. Flood's death, in 1889, various conjectures appeared from time to time as to the 'value of his estate. When the property was divided, two or three years later, it was appraised at at $1,120,000. But it was generally declared by experts to be worth twice that of the estate was besum. One-haqueathed to the widow, the remainder equally divided between Cora Jane (Jennie) and her brother, James L. Flood. The entire estate is now valued at anywhere from ten to fifteen millions. lf r, PETER FINNEQAN.

Packing Company, of the former city, a concern employing over 0,000 men. Mr. Finnegau comes here to take charge of the lard refinery of the Louisville Packing Company. With his late employers he made an almost national reputation as an expert in this branch of the packing business, aud the fact that the Louisville company is procuring the services of the most experienced and capable men throughout the country indicates the quality of the output of this mammoth concern. Mr. Finnegan was deservedly popular with the many employes of his department, and no doubt will prove more so in his new field of labor, and expects that the product of the department under his control will be In greater demand than that of any other house in the United States. In Chicago he took an active part in all movements for the betterment of the conpeople, and dition of the as he is favorably impressed with Louisville he will make his presence felt here. Mr, Flnnegau's family will remove to this city in the very near, future.

West Market St. Prescription!, His death was unexpected, as he took a part in the Public Health Congress lately held in Dublin and was on duty up to five days before his death. The large attendance at his funeral testified to the regard in which he was held by his superiors, colleagues and the general public. In last January the people of Cashel erected a splendid Celtic memorial cross to perpetuate the silver jubilee of his Grace the Most Rev. Dr. Croke, Archbishop of Cashel. The cross stands at a height of sixteen feet from the base, It is situated in the center of the city, At the time of its erection the commission ers, by resolution, agreed to erect orna mental lamps around the cross, the erec tion of which took place on Friday even ing last, when thev were for the first time lit. The crowds of people who assembled around the cross both from the country districts as well as from the city were most enthusiastic on the occa siou. The light from the beautiful lamps was so brilliant that the following inscription on the front tablet of the cross could be di tinctly read: "This market cross has been erected by the citizens of Cashel and a few other friends to perpetuate the silver episcopal jubilee of his Grace the Most Reverend Thomas W. Croke, D. D., Archbishop of Cashel and Emly, July 10, 1895." The people remained until n late hour admiring the beauty of the lamps, and before separat ing there were loud cheers given for his Grace. official. -- 00000 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 If one will only look carefully at the lines in women's faces discontent will be seen pictured there oftener than any other emotion. A sovereign antidote for those who wish to rid themselves of this unhappiness would be'to visit the poor and lowly parts of town and see for themselves the suffering and privation that exist at our very doors whole, fam- lies, consisting frequently of father. mother aiftl three' or four children of from eight or nine years down to nursing baby, huddled together in one room and many such rooms iu a building. The same loves and hates, the same sympa thies and repulsions, animate these peo pie as do their better fed and better cared for brethren in comfortable homes, yet how little are thev thought of! Dozens of tiny waifs may be seen playing on th streets in danger of being run over that could without any trouble be gathered up by these women who are at horn erumblini: about everything from the attic down to the kitchen, and placed in the nearest kindergarten, of which there are now so many. This would indeed be true charity, to help poor little children If women will only go to work sensibly and help fill up these baby schools eternity alone can tell the good they will Once there, the have accomplished. teachers in charge will do the rest. Most of our discontent arises from brooding If we broaden over disappointments. our field of labor and resolve to do what good we can, it is marvelous with what rapidity we forget our activity and pet tishuess, and even our disappointments, iu the light of other people's terrible sor rows, do not seem to be so great. Many of the hard lines forming around the eyes and mouths of women would sotten out and doubtless disappear entirely if they would throw a little more actual good into their daily lives. By all means let us help the little children. no Sister of Charity or gentlewoman could have been more devoted to a pa tient, no friend more .loyal to another than were they to their sick and dying comrade. No love of display nor hope of reward actuated these heroes, but a sympathy and fidelity born of true manliness. When their time comes may they be remembered as nobly. GHAPP NOTICE.
