it stands was r Owned bytThomasSlevinwltoat mi time offered it to the city to be used as a park but as it was at that time sur rounded by ponds the city didnt accept of it A few years later the ground was given to the Right Rev Bishop of this diocese who had the church erected for the Carmelite Fathers with the intention of converting it into a college At the time the church was built there were about thirty families living in the parish while at the present time nearly 800 reside there Of the original fami lies the following are still living and are members of the parish Pat Bannon Dan Quill Conrad Wentzell John Ker berg Michael King Peter Tevelin Thos Nohelly John Richardson W H Boyce C Schreiber D Dempsey Tim Harring ton and C W Smith The first director of the choir was Mrs Hannah Smith the first organist Miss Harris From 1873 to 1875 the church was un der the direction of the Carmelite fath ers the first pastor being leather Feehan His lodgingroom was over the office in tbe church It was not until 1877 when Father Rock was sent as rector that they had a pastors residence The par ish was so scattered during Father Rocks time that lie role horseback in making his parish calls Ho owned a fine black horse that he called Pat but the boys of the parish went him one better and called him Pattie Rock In 1879 the Passiouist fathers took charge with Father Aloysius as rector Father Ryan succeeded Father Aloysius and Father McHenry succeeded Father Ryan In 1883 the secular fathers took charge Father McConnell was the first to be rector lie was succeeded by the late Father Mackin whose death in 1893 is still fresh in the memory of the parishioners The present rector Father Brady has been in charge since 1893 There have been 1025 baptisms about 200 marriages and 2GO deaths registered since the establishment of the parish The first person to be baptised was Catherine Pearl Parsons daughter of Mr and Mrs Joseph Parsons The first ntarriag- to be solemnized was between Mary Kil teen and William cCue The Sisters of Charity started school in the rooms under the church in 1877 which they still continue When the church was built there were no streets made north of Main nor west of Nine teeth When attending night services the parishioners carried lanterns Old residents well remember when two boys playing truant from school were drowned in a pond in the vicinity of the church At present the church is surrounded by streets and fine residences all in twenty five years St Cecilias is the home of that popu tar Catholic society known as Mackin Council which like the church has grown from forty members who organ ized it In 1892 under Father Mackin to about 300 its present membership A number of improvements have been tI I II made in recent notably a fine steelbelfrylThetime the was was I r one and many a hard thump the writer has had against its sidw when ringingth old bell The parishioners will have the church free from debt in a few years and then they expect to erect a new edifice as the one at present is not suited for the everincreasing congregation V B S NOW TO BE SOLD Catholic Orphan Asylum the Finest Residence Block In New York It can be said of few plots of land on Manhattan Island that they have been used for one purpose only ever since it was settled by white people But this is true of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum which extends from Fifth to Parkavenue and from Fiftyfirst to Fiftysecond street When the Dutch controlled the lower endof the island no one paid any attention to the lands lying as far north as Fiftieth street It was left to Indians to wolves to bears to panthers It was good hunting ground- In those days real estate speculation was an unknown thing There was a deal more land than any one wanted- A man with 3000 was looked upon as richer than a man with 30000 is now When the English took possession of Manhattan and the Duke of York be came the lord he claimed possession of all1 unoccupied land on the islandand in this was included the site of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum and St Patricks Cathedral together with nearly all the territory in that vicinity When the Revolution ended the city of New York succeeded to the ownership of all lands which the Duke of York had not disposeed of and these were known as they are to this day as the common land of the city Robert vyburn bought the present site of St Patricks but the site of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum was never sold by the city The city later leased the property to the church authorities At that time it was nothing but a great mass of forbidding rocks greatjaggedand a high hill cut down and the big structure and the smooth turfsucceeded them But a part of the playground is artificial stone that is as smooth as the primeval rocks were rough William II Vanderbjlt always resented the presence of the orpfom asylum So didother rich men having houses in the vicinity Time and time again Mr Vanderbilt tried to buy the orphan asylum lIe offered sums which the churchauthor ities frankly admitted were more than tltcproyteptv4 torthyt I lint they would iiot sell They held that there were many advantages in laving the asylum next the church The Roman Catholic Orphan Asyutn is the only institution of the kind in the city which does not receive the per capita of 8 a month from the municipal treasury ArchbishopCorrigan when it would be wise to think of re moving the asylum to the upper part of the city where there was mure room The welfare of children is always associ ated with the country Of course if the asylum were removed the old property would be sold And then the question of title arose There was no doubt that the asylum couldretain the ground to the endof time but it did not hold the land in fee simple It could not give a purchaser a clear title so that it was practically worthless as an asset The church authorities went to the Board of Aldermen with an ordinance corporationa deedof sale transferring the property outright to the asylum for 1 The ordinance passed and was signed by Mayor StrongAble lawyers said that this gave a perfectly clear and legal title But the church authorities wanted no possible question A bill was sent to the Legisla ture in 1890 so framed that it gave the asylum power to dispose of the property as it saw fit and made the title absolutely valid This became a law Now the property can be sold with a clear title and therefore can command its normal value How much this is is a matter of opinion There are thirty four lots in oue block and thlrtytwo in the other It has been said that the property is worth 3500000 but experts say that this is a low estimate and that it will bring nearer 5000000 The Fifth auenue block is the most valuable resi Yorkee CATHOLIC KNIGHTS

mistak en if it imagines that the Catholics of- reland are going to fallow their demand for equal treatment iin the matter of uni versity education to become rusty Irish Catholics on the contrary are determined 1 keep their demandjSteadily and persistently before the eyes of the country Mr Balfour and Lord Cadogan have admitted justice why then delay the settlement of question on which the hearts the Catholics of Ireland are set askedr the Dublin Herald iijf a late issue Mr Balfour can not plead that any difficulties j are being thrown it his way He laid down at one time certain conditions before I he could approach the consideration on the subject Tlifse conditions have 1 been accepted by thejrish Bishops Why 1 therefore does Mr llalfour dally Is it afraidof the Orangemen he is Lord Russell of Killowen in a memorable j speech at a banquet Dublin some time ago voiced the sentiments of Irish Catho tics when he said that they did not want f glorified ecclesiastical seminary for university Shouljl not that statement satisfy Mr Balfour and the members the Government The fact is that the Catholic case is unanswerable statesmen 1 admit its justice and reasonableness but t unaccountably time have adopted a policy of procrastination We may tell them that delays ire very dangerous i They want also to iclay on the question the financial relations between Eng land and Ireland but even supporters of their own arc becoming sick andweary of this policy of putting things on the i long finger That this is so may be t gathered from a remarkable address delivered by a Unionist Peer Lord Emly when speaking at the inaugural meeting of the Limerick Catholic Institute Here 1 a quotation fronl this very important 1 address 1 I say it advisedly were tomorrow another Hoche to anchor tits fleet off Berc island he would beAyclcomed as even Hoche himself wbuldjiiot have been wel corned ifdWbftiitHftve wenot held out the olive branch to England How often have we gone down on our knees and begged of her to remember that a nation highspirited sensitive and intelligent will not and should not be kept in leading stringsthat the days are past and gone when our people might be pushed i back at the point of the bayonet into the Irish town and the Irish town was grown too narrow for us That bitterest of all bitter thoughts is the thought of what might have beenas England sowed the storm so would she reap the whirlwind The hour was fast approaching was event hand the people she had scourged would scourge her English statesmen would do well to ponder on this address and also on the remarkable letter of Lord Castletown on I the financial relations question in which he referred to the UniteorDie motto of the Volunteers I KNIGHTS AND LADIESII J They

HIS GREAT CHARITY WILL DE MISSED No death announcement of the past year was received with more genuine sor ow than that of Mr Thomas H Sherley who died suddenly Tuesday morning of paralysis of the heart at his residence 207 West Breckinridge street He had been suffering from a cold and lied been confined to his home for several days He was much improved Monday night however and entertained several who called until a late hour friendsIi advised by his physician that he could go to his office Tuesday morning Death came suddenly1 Mr Sherley was surrounded by the members of his j family and was sitting in his armchair when the end came The announcement of Mr Sherleys deathwas a shock to the community No man in Louisville was better known than he and no man had devoted more of his time and attention to the citys interests Sorrowing friends from all walks of life called ut the residence previous to the funeral to pay their respects to the be reaved family Mr Sherleys death is a loss to Louis ville For years he was identified with every movement in behalf of the city and State lie was a man of wonderful en terprise and industry and discharged the many duties of trust imposed in him with credit to himself and the office His sound judgment was always sought In his own business he was an acknowledged leader and in many other capacities he showed the possession of an executive ability which always singled him out as an important factor in big undertakings No man was uiore charitable or more quiet about his good deeds than Mr Sherley He was geerous to a fault when any one appeared to be in need Some years ago Mr T J Batman who was in more confidential relations with the senior member of the firm than perhaps any other person outside of Mr Sherleys family opened up a charity account without Mr Sherleys knowl edge He was able to keep a record only of that money which he knew to have been donated to charity while much more money went the same way that he never knew anything about After Mr Batman had been keeping the account for about a year Mr Sherley in looking over the books one day ran across the itemsWhats this1 he asked in surprise Thats the charity account an swered Mr Batman Mr Sherley closed up the book and laid it aside- I dont want to know whats given away We dont need the account he said and he never afterward alluded to it or looked at the book but it in no way lessened his devotion to aiding the needy- A story of some of the bread Mr Slier ley cast upon the waters coming back to him was told by Mr Batman and the happening caused Mr Sherley as much pleasure as anything that ever occurred to him When the night schools first opened in Louisville Mr Sherley offered a prize for the best pupil among the boys He found a little fellow on Main street who appeared bright and capable but had no education and was badly handi capped by circumstances He took an interest in the boy at once and calling him into his office talked to him of the advantages of an education and advised him to go to night school He told the boy that he would see him through The boy went to night school and won Mr Sherleys prize which that year was a silver watch The prize was always de livered to the winner at Mr Sherleys office and when the winner called for it he always gave the boy a good and en couraging talk He treated the boy in question according to his custom and watched him for a while and then lost sight of him A year or so ago Mr Sherley was in a Northern city on busi tress and was walking down one of the business streets wiled a welldressed energetic young man accosted him- I guess you dont remember me do you Mr Sherley he asked NT Sherley said he did not Well Im the young man you helped through night school Im prospering here and I wantyou to meet my family The young man took him to an elegant home and an interesting family and Introduced him as the man to whom he owed his success Time young man was one of the owners of the largest stove manufactories in the town and one of the largest in the country No one knows how many needy but worthy girls and boys he had entered in business college and either paid for their education or aided them in securing the education When the boy or girl left the school he always saw that they secured employmentMr Batman who went with Mr Sherley in 1873 as an office boy and who 1 has been with him ever since of llate years as a member of the firm said that during his twentysix years connection with the company Mr Sherley had never discharged an employe He was too tenderhearted to dis charge any one in his employ said he and when it had to he done I was the one that had to do it He knew neither creed nor color Protestant and Catholic were treated alike Twice n year on fixed dates the Little Sisters of the Poor called at the office and were given a ing regular The allowanceIDudley conducting the services The immense gathering of mourning friends attested to the high

Independence John Dun1 lap was born in Strnbane County Tyrone Ireland in 1747 He emigrated at the age of nine to the United States where he came to live with his uncle William Dunlap who was one of time first printers and publishers in Philadel phia and who under Benjamin Frank lin became Postmaster at Lancaster Pa In 1771 he issued the first number ofI the Packet or General Advertiser and soon after became an extensive publisher When the British had possession of Phil adelphia September 1777 to July1778 owing to his taking the side of the pat riots Dunlap was compelled to move to Lancaster and in 1784 changed his paper from a weekly to a daily the first in the United StatesIWhen the First Continental Congress assembled at Philadelphia in 1774 John Dunlap was appointed printer to the con vention and also to Congress and in that capacity had the honor of being the first wino printedtlnr Declaration of Inde Independence to the principles and doctrines of which his paper and his personal ef fort civilly and in action were dedi catedBefore the War of the Revolution he was Lieutenant of a Philidelphia troop of cavalry and at Princeton and Trenton was the bodyguard of Gen Washington After the battle of Trenton in order to reconnoiter the position of the enemy and to obtain such information as was required before the further movement of the American army upon the enemy then at Princeton six men volunteered their services for this hazardous service timid placed themselves under command of John Dunlap How this duty was performed is well described by the historian The rav ages of the British had struck such ter ror that no rewards could tempt any one to go to Princeton on this errand The men under their able commander set out and obtained such a perfect account that Washington was able to give the English another taste of defeat For this perilous undertaking Gen Washington thanked the six men in these words Though gentlemen of fortune you have shown a noble ex ample a spirit and bravery which will ever be gratefully remembered by me Near the close of the war John Dunlap became Captain of his troop and although a higher military station was of fered to him he preferred his post in the troop In 1709 during time insurrection of time four western counties of Pennsyl vania Major Dunlap and his troop were sent to Muddy Creek Washington county and by his dexterity in capturing the leaders of the movement the insurrection was suppressed William Finley in his history of this insurrection says After Capt Dunlaps capture of the prisoners who committed outrages against the civil authorities he captured several important witnesses treated them with humanity and provided them with lodgings and victuals before taking refreshments him selfHaving thus patriotically served his country against the oppression of Eng land and the domestic disturbers of the peace of their own country he retired to his business In the winter of 1780 while the American army was in winter I quarters at Morristown N J where they suffered even more than at Valley Forge Mr Dunlap contributed 20000 to supply provisions and other necessities for the patriots not mentioning his donation to the Hibernian Society of which he was a member Mr Dunlap died on November 27 1812 and was buried withI all the honors of war ImCKEYS OPENING TODAY IJohn Hickey will today

Great Britain and British products ought to be admitted to the Philippines on the same terms as those of the United States The Sub islands are not wanted by the Unit States and would be very useful to England A graceful concession here would cost the victors nothing and would appreciated by England as a gratifying demonstration of the friendly feeling we have heard so much aboutLontlon GlobeThe motive of Englands recently professed friendship for the United States and efforts to bring about an AngloSaxon alliance has all along been clear enough to those who have noted events and looked through Englands flattery and scheming Despite its persistency and the echo by the English toadi in this country the American government or people do not seem tc have taken heed of the friendl attitude during the war withI Spain nor given a thought t gratitude to England so we are reminded of it and coyly asked for gratifyinag demonstration of the friendly feel1 ingHthey have heard so flueI

in her ports a war vessel and munii tions of war purchased by the United States and en route to this countr Her assertion that by her refusal to join in a European coalition iin favor of Spain she deprived Spain of all assistance from other nations is disproved by the Russian another d ministers at Washington wh declare that no such coalition was ever proposed and there is no basis for Englands claim of having pr vented it- England observed strict neutralt ity as did every other nation but has been noisier in her professions of friendshipnever official or formal which might prove embarrass lugthan other nations She did not nor has she ever shown any friendly service to this country to entitle her to any gratitude or graceful concession not accorded to all nations in fairness and cour

pretenses THE FLANAGAN CASE Patrick Flanagan an Irish politi cal offender recently released from a fifteenyear term in an English prison for alleged conspiracy iin Ireland has been refused admission to the United States as an im migrant under the law whichex eludes exconvicts This ha aroused much indignation natural ly against the United States immi gration officers at Quebec who are just now being generally denounced and abused for their action We think this is hasty illadvised an wrong The officers have simply done their duty subject of course to orders from their superiors Those officers are to enforce the law against all who come under its restrictions they have only powers to restrain or exclude immigrants prohibited by law they have no discretionary powers their acts being only temporary in case an investigation is demanded or anl appeal taken to higher authority Although it is claimed Flanaganl was an Irish patriot and according to our statute had been guilty only of a political offense which would not exclude him as an immigrant nevertheless the fact remains that he was convicted served fifteenI years as a convict and comes to this country as an exconvict This Fact the plain law and the duty of the immigration inspectors at Que bec fully justifies their detaining Flanagan indeed they could not do otherwise with these admitted facts before theta without neglecting their duty and violating the law instead of enforcing it The proneness to condemn official acts and call hard names must be guarded against because it is un jurt and only reacts against those 4 who do it In this case while I wholesale abuse is heaped upon the officials and the immigration lawsII inquiry of Commissioner Powderly at Washington reveals that no complaint has been made or investiga I tion asked of his department into the case The very first thing that every intelligent and lawabiding citizen knows should be done has been left undone and the act and the law condemned Let the proper course be pursued in the matter Have I I the case with all the facts and evi dence brought to the attention of the Immigration Bureau instead ofr raising sheol and blackguarding everybody and justice will be ac corded Mr Flanagan and all con cerned ofThe Courier Journal should muzzle its pro Gernnau anti Irish scribblers Softsoaping the Germans and slurring the Irish does nott meet with favor like it used to Our Germans and Irish will gett along together all right and those who seek to lure them by appealing to their vanity or prejudice willl i find they are neither fatheads nor greenhorns The world do move and our German and Irish fellowcitizens move with it Re member it was an Irish American who uttered the truly American solution of the nationality question

popular with the Irish peasantry since it was written close on a century ago says Love is the soul of a neat Irishman He loves all thats lovely and loves all he can And yet though there seems to exist a widespread impression that strong pas sionate triasterful love is a characteristic of the Irish temperament says a writer iin McMillans Magazine lovemaking in Ireland is really a very calm and placid business and the old song I have quoted notwithstanding the average Irish peasant takes unto himself mate with as clear a head as placid a heart and as steady a nerve as if he were buying a coat IJallinasloe Pair Love by no means decides all the marriages that are made in Ireland The match is often arranged in a ludicrously cool businesslike and mercenary fashion between the parents of the boyan the girl the young people themselves not being allowed and indeed not ex pecting any voice in the origin of the most of the matrimonial contracts made in rural Ireland they are ns a rule entirely successful The marriages thus prosaicallyarranged arc as happy as happy can be Pat and Mary fall fondly in love with each other after they are made husband and wife children quickfy spring up around their hearth and the older they grow the more passionately do they cling to each other Their do mestic felicity is rarely if ever dis turned by jealousy for Pat makes the faithfullest of husbands and Mary the fondest anti truest of wives and as there is little or no illicit passion the crimes which spring from that source and make desolate so many homes in other coun tries are almost unknown in Ireland The great marrying season in Ireland is Shrovetide During the forty days of Lent time Irish peasantry in obedience to the ordinances of tile church abstain from matrimony as well as from eggs butter and milk Some time before the approach of that holy season a farmer with a marriageable son or daughter whom he desires to sec settled tells his friends and neighbors of the fact He usually conveys the intelligence in an indirect offhand manner He meets a friend at the fair or market and says with a laugh Whisper here Jim Im training up little Maggie for your Johnny my Ah now Jim the other says you do me a great favor entirely Hut mind you my little Johnny is very particular The boy do be saying what a great fortin hell want with his wife The subject having thus been broached the parents discuss it whenever they meet and it often happens that a longtime elapses and many a discussion and wrangle take place before the terms are a finally settled The farm generally goes with the male and the great difficulty in the arranging of matches is the fixing of the girls dowry consisting partly of money and partly of furniture and culinary utensils as a setoff against the landA favorite proverb of the peasantry in regard to matrimony is Either marry very young or become a monk very young Early marriages are the rule in Ireland and the poorest marry the earliestAnd yet many of the Irish poor enter into matrimony as a sort of provident investment for old age A very intelligent Irish peasant once said to me A poor man ought to marry young that his children may be able to assist him when he grows old When Pat and Biddy begin housekeeping their little cabin is soon filled with children and the more their flock increases the more they say Shure the childer will be a great sup port to us in our old age And happily this investment for old age never fails them In no country in the world is the affection between children and parents so strong in no country in the world is the duty of children to provide for their aged parents held so sacred as in Ireland Pour generations may be seen in many of the poorest cabins in the West the children the young father and mother the old grandparents and an ancient great grandinotluer or greatgrandfather The large sums of money which have been annually sent by children in the colonies and in America to patents in Ireland during the past half century is another striking demonstration of this intense filial affection Hut happily many of the marriages in rural Ireland have their spice of romance The match is made by the boy and the girl themselves An Irish peasant maid in the heyday of her youth with lieu pretty figure her abundant black hair Her large blue eyes with their indescrib able halfarch half sliy expression is quite irresistible and the boy has too often an impressionable heart anda deludhering tongue to render it always necessary that the parents should make the bargain The youthful couples meet at dances or on Sundays after mass even a wake is turned to account for a little courting and they are in hearty accord with the boy who said It is a great pleasure entirely to be alone es pecially whin yer sweetheart is wid ye Do you dratne of me Mike said the girl to her lover as they walked arm in arm down tile lonely glen Drama of you is it Iate Sure tis the way wid me that I cant sleep dramin of you me darlinI Yes then they have the flxlt tering tongue those Irish boys llrtnli I wasrthe compliment one of them paid to a pretty colleen Even when they get a refusal they Have a soft word to say Eileen was engaged to another boy and so she had to say no to Tim when he asked her Wisha thin said Tim with a sigh I wish youd been born twins so that I cud have half of yez The girls in Ireland can afford just as well if indeed not better than thee girls of any other country to take up an inde pendent position in regard to matrimony I rLfjru MAGIC PRICES ON MARKET

the girls to agree to getting the words said as the marriage ceremony is colloquially de scribed In one case I have heard ofa farm servant was told bythe girl to whom he proposed that she was too much attached to her mother and her mother to her to think of getting married Arrah shure no husband could equal my mother in kindness said she Och thin ex claimed the boy be my wife and shure we can all live together and see that I dont bate yer mother He could not have meant that he would illuse the mother that was only his Irish way of putting thingsfor his declaration in duced the girl to yield to his wishes A bashful youth a rather rare person in Ireland be it said who was in love with a girl intrusted his proposal for her hand to his sister One day the maid visited his fathers cabin while he with anxious heart hid behind the door awaiting the result The girl who did not care to be wooedat second hand replied with a saucy toss of her head Indeed now iif Im good enough to be married Im good enough to be axed The boy then stuck his head into the room and exclaimed with a sob in his voice Mary allanah will yez do what Maggie axed ye When the day has been named whether by arrangement between the- boy and girl themselves or through the intermediary of their parents prepara tions are made on the most extensive scale for a grand wedding It is considered essential in the humblest circles that for the honor of the family the guests at the wedding which in clude the whole of the coun tryside should have lots of eating and drinking lashins and lavins of verything Closeness on such an oc casion is the uuforgivable socialsin Arrah if I wor gettin married I have heard a woman exclaim when she saw a poor display at a wedding Id sell every stitch to my back and go naked in order to get married dacentlyl A pretty Irish servant maid who had got married called to see her mistress I hear you are going to Australia with your husband Kitty said the lady Are you not afraid of such a long voyage Well maam thats his lookout said Kitty I belong to him now an if anything happens to me shure itll be his loss not mine Hut there is not always that complete loss of the wifes identity in the husband which the above anecdote suggests Its the wife that rules the household in rural Ireland The husband surrenders to her nil his earnings to the utter most farthing an excellent arrange ment for Pat who feeling the money turning in his pocket as he says himself is disposed to get rid of it rapidly and a still more excellent arrangement for the sake of the children Bridget is indeed Pats guardian angel On many a Saturday when a boy in Limerick have I seen the long line of country cars returning homeward from market in the dusk of the summer evenings the wives driving and the husbands with a drop taken perhaps quietly in the straw behind There is a story told of a young lady from Cork who was presented at the Viceregal Court Dublin shortly after her marriage The Viceroy has the pleasant duty of kissing on the cheek time ladies presented him at a drawing room but when his Excellency was about to give this young lady the rcgu lotion salute she cried Oh no that privilege is exclusively reserved for Mr OMahonyOf there are exceptions to the general serenity of the domestic hearth and the fond attachment between bus band and wife I knew at least of one Irishman in Limerick whose life was made miserable by a drunken wife She had sold everything in the home for drink and as a last resource she threatened to commit suicide if money to procure liquor were not forthcoming Next morning before proceeding to T Huwork the husband driven to despera tion by his wifes conduct left his two new razors lying on the table telling her to select the best one ov thiui At night when Pat came home trem bling with apprehension he found his wife huddled up in a corner not dead but dead drunk By her side was a pawnticket and on it was written Two razors Is Od There is another story of the excep tion which proves the rule Some years ago as the mailboat from Ireland was entering Holyhead Harbor a lady fell into the water One of the sailors an Irishman jumped overboard and rem cued her from death by drowning When she was safe on deck again the who was a calm spectator of the accident handed the brave sailor a shilling The spectators did not hesitate to express their indignation at the mans meanness when the sailor with native shrewdness threw a new light on the matter by saying Arrah dont blame the gentleman he knows best maybe if I hadnt saved her hed have given me half a crown I am disposed to think that the husband in this case was not an Irishman History certainly does not indicate his nationality Marital relations in Ireland are as a rule of the most harmonious character and if a husband and wife do fall out occasionally and even resort to blows they think nothing the worse of each other in the end Pill Lane is a classic locality in Dublin which might with some truth be described as the Billings gate of the Irish metropolis Thats a fine black eye youve got Misses said a man to a woman sitting over Item basket of fish in Pill Lane

Culled From Exchanges Lord Avonniore is expected shortly at his Irish residence Belle Isle County Tipperary from Klondyke Right Hon Justice 0Hrien Justices Murphy and Kenny form the rota of Parliamentary judges for the trial of election petitions in the year 1809 A cabinetmaker named John McDon nell of 34 Stafford street Dublin was treated at Jervis street Hospital for severe burns about the head and body It ap peared that he fell asleep while sitting near the fire and fell across it The Ideal of the Men of 98 is the title ofa lecture which was delivered by Mr E H Burke under the auspices of the Bray 08 Club This club has per formed splendid work for the National cause and the lecture was bound to be well supported On Sunday evening the ninny friends of Mr ONeill entertained him to a sup per at Kingstown prior to his departure for South Africa There was a large at tendance anda choice selection of music and recitation brought to a conclu slot a most happy and well thought out eventNot for the past thirty years was the fishing industry in Passage and Dunmore so brisk as it has been for the past few weeks Large quantities of herrings are arriving at Waterford daily for sale and the disposal of them at a price satisfac tory to fishermen depends on the amount of opposition there is among the buyers who arc principally exporters- At the last monthly meeting of the Bray Commissioners Mr Holohan brought under the notice of the board the fact that an ambulance wagon was badly needed in Bray Everyone who knows the township will cordially agree with Mr Holohans views and in draw ing attention to this subject is simply making known a want that should have been crippled years ago On Tuesday evening a grand fashiona ble vocal and instrumental concert was given in the courthouse Thurles under the patronage of his Grace the Arch bishop of Cashel and Emly and the local clergy to raise funds for parochial pur poses Well known amateurs from Dublin Kilkenny Clonmel and Castle council lent their services and provided a rare treat for the large and respectable audience who had the good fortune of obtaining seats Mr Edmond Johnson intends to ex hibit at the Paris Exhibition of 1000 a reproduction of the crozier which was made bean Irish goldsmith of the twelfth century and which some years ago was S found during some restorations at Lis more Castle The crozier bears the fol lowing inscription in the Irish charac ters A prayer for Nial son of Mac Aeducain for whom was made this ornament A prayer of Nectain who made this ornament C On Monday evening November 21l Mr J E Redmond lectured at the As sembly Rooms and was the recipient of a very enthusiastic welcome It is over twelve months since the Indepentment leader appeared publicly in Cork and though he only came in the guise of a lecturer he was none the less cordially received Irish popular leaders from Swift to Parnellwas the title of the lecture and treated by Mr Redmond the subject becomes fascinating Sunday November 20 was Decoration day in Cork and it was unnecessary to do more than simply remind Nationalists of the duty they owed to the patriot dead whose memory they commemorated by the decoration of graves that are very numerous and unhappily increase year by year in Cork and neighborhood Many of the Old Guard have gone but they are not forgotten The fact that there has been numerous demonstrations this year did not in any way detract from the importance and enthusiasm of the cele bration on Decoration day The monument inaugurated by the Billy Byrne Dublin Branch of the 08 Centenary Committee for the erection of I a monument in Wicklow town to the memory of the leaders of the insurrec tion in that county is rapidly taking practical shape An influential commit tee has been formed The Market square i Wicklow has been selected as the site of the principal memorial although slabs and other mementoes will eventually mark many of the historic spots made famous by the glorious struggles of Byrne and Holt of Dwyer and McAllister of Thomas and Hartman and many others against English oppression a hundred f years ago- Strangers in Dublin oftena are aston ished to find that the handsomest houses are situated in a comparatively unfash ionable district north of the Liffeyand w that the smart quarter of the town is lowlying damp and depressing as well as somewhat inferior from an architect ural point of view The ebbing away of fashion from the north side where all the nobility resided in the last century and well into the present one is indeed rather laid to explain especially as the neigborhood of the Park should have acted as a social magnet to some extent In no quarter of town might the deser tion of the beautiful old houses excite to much surprise as in Henrietta street The Munster egg merchants have taken prompt steps to vindicate their position and to meet the serious charges made against the Irish egg trade in Liver pool and other English cities The meet ing held at the Limerick Junction clearly went to show that as far as this province is concerned these charges were exag gerated if not entirely untrue The e Munster merchants deny emphatically strictureA If the trade had suffered in any part of England it WAS due to the merchants on the other side who sometimes held over eggs for a rising market In this way the reputation of Irish eggs has been unjustly injured Quite a little romance preceded Sir Edward Bradfords marriage which took place last month He was hunting but his horse refused a ditch and in conse quence he was violently thrown and badly hurt The only spectator of the accident was Miss Nicholson daughter of William Nicholson Esq who was riding close behind She at once dismounted helped him into a better position and made him as comfortable as circum stances would permit absolutely refusing to leave hits Miss Nicholson now Lady Bradford lost a good run with the I hounds but she has got for an act of kindness a husband who is a man in a million for pluck and skill in all he un dertakes says a contemporary Through the death of Mr Felix Moss a vacancy lias occurred in the Waterford senior school of the Workhouse During the tedious illness of Mr Moss his duties were most efficiently discharged by Ir- E V Drea the Assistant Master who isII now a candidate for the position Mr Drea during his long connection with the schools always performed the duties of his office to the satisfaction of the guardians and the Inspectors reports show how diligentlyl he applied himself to his work As Ned of the Hills Mr Drea is well known as a writer of merit and the Nationalists on the board Inc spective of party could not make a bet ter selection and at the saute time show their appreciation of his efforts on behalf of his country than by appointing him to the vacancy Isis unanimous selection would give general satisfaction The death occurred of Mrs Allman the wife of an esteemed Cork citizen Mr F W Allman It is a sad bereave ment in a house long associated with good works and may be regarded almost as a public loss Mrs Allman was the only child of Richard Dowden who was once Mayor of Cork who was actively associated with OConnell in the movement for Catholic emancipation and who was a fellow laborer with Father Mathew in the movement of temperance conducted bv that great priest Mrs Allman never ceased to work in the philanthropic spirit of her father Throughout her life she was associated with many schemes of charity and philanthropy She took a great interest in the work of the Blind Asylum in the Iwardingout of children in the Cork Union in the tem perance movement etc Mrs Allman has died at the age of sixtynine years universally respected and mourned For some time past considerable sums of money have been stolen from the Roman Catholic church at Borrisoleigh and despite the vigilant exertions of Sergeant Nally and the local police the perpetrator of this offense succeeded in evading capture and continued his nefa rious practice tilla few days ago when Sergeant Nally who had previously marked some coins and placed them in a box in the sacristy of the church from which the money had been stolen set to watch and soon afterwards noticed a man named Thomas Kelly a cardriver in Borrisoleigh go in the direction of the church and a short time after dis covered that the coins had been stolen and immediately set to watch the move ments of Kelly who evidently became conscious that he was shadowed and made his escape to Thurles where he was brought to bay by Detective Acting sergeant P Ryan of the Thurles station The prisoner pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three calendar months im prisonmentI at the want of sense shown by the people of Queenstown incoming out to notice the streetpreachers who having wearied of the indifferece with which they are now received in Cork are seeking fresh fields in which they may exercise their disturbing and combative influences says a Cork corre spondent These selfassertive mission ers created at one time much excitement in Cork and Sunday after Sunday dis turbed the peace of the city In the end people learned wisdom and passed them by and though they have changed from locality to locality they have ceased to attract attention the novelty has disap peared and no one at present minds these canting evangelists Advertisement being at an end these men are disappointed and have selected Queens town as a likely place to create trouble and win fresh notoriety If the people of the town will only follow the example of the city and leave the preachers alone they will soon find them die of inanition They live on advertisement and without it there is an end to their missionary workAt the meeting of the Loughrea Town Commissioners a letter was received from the Rev Father Nolan forwarding a petition of the residents of Barrick street requesting that the present name of their street be cancelled and substi tute therefor the name Straid Us Frannactta II that is to say OPinnerty street after a local patriot The petition bore time signature of all time principal residents of Barrack street the name of the Rev Father Nohilly heading the list Mr Mulkern said that enormous expense had been gone to in the prepa ration of the slabs to be put on all the streets iti Irish and Irish characters The erection of these slabs and renaming of the streets was one of the items on the programme of the 98 celebrations The promoters of the movement expected that a procession will be formed on the day the slabs are to be put up halting at each street as they go along Mr OPlaherty said that in his and others opinion it should be a98 demonstration in a wide sense On the motion of Mr Mulkern seconded by Mr OPlaherty the petition was unanimously adopted Intelligence has just reached Kanturk of a shocking case of suicide which oc curred near the vilage of Freemont the victim being the wife of a small farmer named Loder Mrs Loder who was a middleaged woman and the mother of a large family sent one of her children who happened to be the only person with her in the house at the time for a mes sage after which she seized a razor and gashed her stomach Jna terrible manner I A neighbor calling in found the unfortunate woman lying on two chairs before I the fire with blood gushing from the several huge gaping wounds in her side In reply to a question the poor woman said in a voice weak from loss of blood that there was no use sending for a doc tor as she wanted to get out of this life and that she made sure of doing for her self Medical and spiritual aid were im i immediately summoned and in a short time Father Twomey and Dr McCarthy of Milford were in attendance thing possible was done to Eeryjj sufferings but despite the most mitting and skilful medical attention she gradually sank and expired from time re suits of the frightful injuries she inflicted on herself It is understood that the deceased was mentally afflicted for some years past and has been known to suffer from delusions which probably furnishes an explanation of her fearful act selfdestruction Time greatest sympathy is felt for the afflicted husband and children PADDYS REPLY TO A SNEER A Paddy I am sir Nor care I a clam sir Who jeers or who jibes at a Pat A Paddy Ill stay

ago a wellknown Welsh clergyman says the New York Sun went from home to preach in the church of a brother divine On Sunday evening he preachedan eloquent sermon from the text Go to the ant thou sluggard consider her ways and be wise Next morn ing he lay on a grassy bank in his hosts garden reading a book until he had bare ly time to rush to the station and catch his train He arrived at the platform however just in time to jump into a compartment containing only one occu pant a gentleman After a few moments this gentlemans attention was attracted by the uneasy restlessness of his reverend companion The latter was glaring wildly at his coat sleeve from which he was brushing in visible somethings Whats the matter cried the layman Ants shrieked the parson And then for some minutes both were busily engaged in expelling the in vading host from coat and waistcoat which were pronounced clear just as the train stopped at a station where the lay man alighted The next stopwas to be his own desti nation and the agitated parson resumed his coat and waistcoat and leaned by to rest But horrors the train had scarcely restarted when the reverend gentleman felt suspicious tinglings in his legs He bore it stoically for a time but at last it grew unbearable Kicking off his boots with an inward thanksgiving that he was alone he hastily divested himself of his nether garments and found them swarm ing with a host of the industrious little people whom he had praised the night before He then opened the window on the off side of the carriage and holding the garment at arms length shook it violently An express train rushing by in time opposite direction so startled him that he relaxed his hold and the allim portant vestment was torn from his grasp Hardly had he realized his horrible po sition when the train slowed down to enter the station To alight in such a guise was absolutely impossible so after pulling down the window blinds he stood at the door ready to defend the entrance against all comers The train stopped and two ladies tried to enter the compart ment Go away go away shrieked the franzied parson And the ladies ran screaming to the stationmaster that there was a lunatic on board the train The stationmaster collected a bodyguard of porters and went to investigate matters After a hurried parley two porters were left to guard the door and the grinning stationmaster went off to return with a mysterious parcel which was carefully handed in and the train proceeded- At the next station time clergyman got out and returned home in a pair of the stationmasters trousers which were several sizes too large for him but none ape parently noticed the misfit Time story leaked out before long and there is now at least one parson in Wales who agrees with Mark Twain that the ant is a greatly I overrated bird WHERE HE FAILED Come said the tempter we will go to the prizefight and have the time of our livesThe tempted one shook his head and replied sadly lilt cant be done Why not I will pay the railway fare and buy the tickets The tempted one resisted though with a look of real pain Besides I will pay for the cigars and all the drinks In short you will not need to spend a red cent Thats all right said the tempted all11ouBut whatI You havent the imagination to get up a new yarn that would go down withj my wife I IMembers of

Temple Theater They have succeeded in arranging to produce for the first time in this city at popular prices Diplomacy one of the greatest and most popular plays of the age The story deals with a Russian spy who is diplomat enough to coerce a society woman into stealing certain array plans from an English army Captain who is led to believe that his own wife is the thief The Captains older brother who is an English diplomat and a woman hater finally sets a trap for and catches the real culprit by means of a certain perfume used by the lady in question forcing her to acknowledge the crime The costumes and stage setting will be up to the usual Temple standard and those who would enjoy a really firstclass play should witness this production The fact that the name of Weber and Fields is at the head of the Vaudeville Club Burlesquers which conies to the Buckingham Sunday afternoon for a weeks stay is a sufficient guarantee that the attraction is firstclass as these managers have always kept faithwith the public and presented firstclass en tertainment The company which will appear here next week has been especial ly organized to present the two bur lesques which packed their New York Music Hall for almost a year mil this BILLY VAN WIU UK At THE BUCK will be their first presentation in this city The titles of the burlesques are The Wayliighman and The Wee Minister and are the joint productions of those two prominent authors Louis De Lange and Edgar Smith whose repu tations as burlesque writers are too well known to need an introduction here This is perhaps the best effort of these two writers as it set the whole of New York talking and brought both money and fame to the authors during its suc cessful presentation in New York The present season is the first time that Weber and Fields have ever allowed one of their New York successes to be presented by a traveling company but this year they decided to make a new departure and organized companies especially to pre sent their New York successes in the larger cities in order to give amusement lovers an opportunity of witnessing the different successes to which the metropo lis has taken so kindly The burlesque will be preceded by several artistic specialties All the original scenery used in the New York production will be brought here together with the gorgeous cos tumes and the bevy of pretty girls The Harrisburg Pa Union says of Katie Rooney and her company that is booked for the Avenue Theater next week The ever popular little favorite Miss Katie Rooney and the gay company of fun makers made their bow at the Grand Opera House matinee and night to excellent business The threeact musi cal farce is one of the most original seen here this season It abounds in extremely funny situations which are handled in a unique manner Fun is rampant from start to finish constantly introducing surprises when least expected There is certainly variety enough offered to please everybody and judging by the spontaneous outbursts of laughter the audience yesterday were certainly de lighted Miss Katie Rooney the bright clever little star was the pet of the even ing and was charming as ever She possesses a magnetism which enthuses her audience the moment she makes her appearance She is the life and spark off merriment throughout the whole per formance Her great imitation of e famous Pat Rooney it is safe to say iis the only act of its kind on any stage Her supporting company is a wellbal anced one and contains some excellentt singers The staging and costuming are artistic and the entire production is a meritorious one The last performance will be given tonight when all who enjoy a merry show good music an clever specialties should not miss seeing The Girl from Ireland The
