SCHOOL AT ARMAGH i Ireland was the only country in which the Christian religion became earlv estab dished without bloodshed The populn lion of the island accepted the new faith with avidity and before the death of St Patrick in 192 the entire population had practically become Christians StPatrick began his career as a preacher in Ireland 00 years previously and though he was not the first to introduce Christianity ii before made tothere the attempts con vert the natives had been few and the reoII 4 salts inconsequent Before his death the church in Ireland had been thoroughly organized he appointed several others bishops with whom he consulted to settle the discipline of the church and St Bernard is authority for stating that he had fixed his metropolitan see at Ar maghIn the succeeding century the church that he had established became possessed with a passion for missionary enterprise Celtic preachers spread the light of Christianity throughout the north and west of Europe The presence of those devoted Irish missionaries is still attested JOHN A MlKlHY by the manuscript volumes of Gaelic Latin or Greek found in cities of conti nentnl Europe and books which bear mute testimony both to the piety and learning of their authors Hand in hand with the higher develop ment of the Irish nation in the sphere of religious thought was its progress in knowledge and in the arts of civilization The celebrated school of Armagh found ed by St Patrick was reputed tolleave atone time as many as 7000 students that flocked thither from the island of Britain from Gaul Germany and other countries of Europe There were also schools at Lismore Bangor Clanmacnoise and Mayo which almost rivaled that of Ar magh as seats of learning The products of Irish skill which have come down to us from those early times attested the superiority attained by that people in the arts of civilization The illuminated books crozicrs chalices Celtic crosses and Celtic harps andothe remains of this golden period of Irish history are the wonder and admiration of art critics of today The famous illumi fluted Book of Kells It dating back more than a thousand years is one of the greatest marvels of the coligraphers art k in the world Those not at all inclined to be partial to the Celtic race admit that even now with all the appliances of our civilization and with all our skill we could not produce anything to equal it The venerable Bede relates how the nobles and students of this epoch left Britain to seek an education in Ireland A fact he does not forget to relate also is that the generous Celts provided the Strangers with teachers and books and with true Irish hospitality nave them food and lodging at the cost ol the uation One of the successors of St Patrick St Columba born in 6Zl passing over into Scotland founded at Iona a seat of learn ing which was famous in Western Europe during many centuries Another Irish saint and scholar St Columbanus born in 043 preached and established churches in France Germany and Switzerland In the latter country his disciple St Gall established the great monastic school which still bears his name Many others Immediate successors of 4 St Patrick were scattered all over the continent of Europe and both by the sanctity of their lives their evangelistic labors and their erudition contributed greatly to the moral

the Scandinavian was roaming a savage among the fens and marshes of North western Europe when not engaged in Irma congenial work of making piratical raids upon more highly favoredregions than his own inhospitable abode Ire land retained this spiritual and educa tional preeminence for some centuries but in the eighth century Scandinavian hordes began to ravage the coast and u MAUT1N Ct SICK finally secured a firm foothold in the country itself They destroyed churches used the sacred vessels for ordinary pur poses and slaughtered the clergy Be fore Brian Borrohime finally subdued the ruthless despoilers at the beginning of the eleventh century nearly all the re ligious and educative establishments had been destroyed and Ireland left very much in the condition it was before St Patrick began his evangelistic career thereAfterward dissensions among the no bles and chiefs kept the country in a state of perpetual unrest and it hadnot even partially recovered when the English arrived and practically ended the ex istenceof the Irish as an independent nation a A REUTLINGER CO One of the Most Reliable and Prompt I n surah ce Agen4 j es o thgltyt This wellknown insurance agency which has

More 1Iulih l 1 ALL INVITED TO JOIN THE LEAGUE j A demonstration took place at Ilallin tubber County Roscornmoh on Sunday for the purpose of organizing a branch of the United Irish League Contingents were present from all the surrounding I districts and the number of people pres ent could not have been short of 2000 Amongst those present were J P Hayden M P i Rev James Martin M H Grogaii P Conroy E J McDermott Ji Croghan and M1 Sweeny Michael Fetherslon was moved to the chair The following resolution was pro I posed by Michael Rorke seconded by J Conroy and unanimously adopted That we the parishioners of Ballen tubber do hereby establish a branchof the United Irish League and that we pledge ourselves rn every occasion to further its objectsviz to bringabout the division of the grass lands of Roscom mon amongst the people Messrs M II Grognn and E J McDermott Very strongly emphasized the necessity of unity and organization amongst the people John P Hayden M P who was re THOIi AS KMiNAN ceived with loud cheers said he was pleased to have an opportunity of addressing the people of the district as sembled there that day on one common platform on which Nationalists of all shades might stand It was for this reason that men who had differed for the past ten years could come together and stand shoulder to shoulder that he took part in any meeting to reesstublish this organization in the county But apart from this the object of the organization itself commended itself heartily to all who have the good of the country at heart Ireland was unfortunately an ago ricultural country They had no industry left them and for that reason the great bulk of the people in the country and in the towns depended for their prosperity on agriculture and it Af as well known that the people had not been for years past as well off as they should be Now in Roscommon this question of the divis ion of the lands possessed as great diffi culties perhaps as in other places After contrasting the difference between the i grazing lands of Mayo and Roscommon Mr Hayden went on to say that the peo pIe in Roscommon were driven from the lands to make room for bullocks and sheep At time present time the Government has proclaimed itself in favor of carrying out the system of enlarging the holdings but that it will take a large number of years to accomplish it The week before last the Irish members of alii shades pressed upon the attention of the Government the necessity of dealing with this Question of the land and though perhaps nut much something was gained The Chief Secretary said whilst he declared against this agitation that the Government was willing to increase the facilities of the congested districts board to divide up the lands amongst the peo pie and that they would place at the disposal of the congested districts board an additional 20000 per annum for this purpose Was it any feeling for the condition of the people that got that No iiL it was the people by their organization and determination If the people didII their work it was not 20000 that wouldII be placed at the disposal of this board but a larger sum what would accomplish very much in years to tome lie did not think that at any time was this agitation l so rife as at present Foreign competition in the cattle trade had made cattle not so paying now as fifteen or twenty yearsI ago The Brazier found it more difficult 1 every day to make things meet and they were deploring the bad times and they were more willing pow to part with the rich lands than they were a few years ago It would take smalt consideration to see that the deraUad the people were no making would repnlt lii success if ib prop i h6jNrB4proprr earnmrtneM jn thisi a J jI 1 i- l rmovement and they Would soon have advocating it the people who owned the lands themselves lie was sure they would gather together earnestly and deteriuindlv and join the organization From tlje numbers there that day he was not afraid that the move ment would fail in thSt parish Referring to the coming ejec ions he said he would ask them to wat i the people who were coming forwart ns candidates Much depended upon tame way the act would be worked Thoraxes they would have to spend and thoraxes they would have to pay would depend much on the men they would clcctrfmd in addition to that there is also to Be considered time

the hardships sus tained during the war Left utterly destitute Andrew lad to labor hard for subsistence Before he had completed his eighteenth year he commenced the study of law and in two years line began to practice In 1788 he was appointed Public Prosecutor of the j THOMAS CODY Western district of North Carolina em bracing what is now the State of Tennessee This position he held for seven years On one occasion while perform ing the duties of his office he nearly lost his life and made the characteristic remark A miss is as good as a mile In 1706 he was chosen as the first and only representative in Congress for Tennessee and two years later was honored by the citizens of that State by an election to the United States Senate Shortly after this new honor was conferred upon himbe resigned his seat in the Senate to accept the appointment of u Supreme Court Justice of Tennessee When England again attempted to destroy the American republic in 1812 Jackson was early in the field against the oppressors of his fathers country Up to this time his reputation had been that ofa civilian alone but on being made Major General of the militia of the State of Tennessee he proved his ability as on organizer and when in 1813 there was a formidable outbreak of the Creek In dints to be repressed Jackson as Major General of United States forces was sent to chastise the aborigines It has been said that the power ofthe red man in the United States was finally broken by this victory at Tohopekn March 27 1814 Oil May 81 181i he drove the English in greater numbers than his own army Out of Pensncola By this and other events he drove the British outof Flori da and was soon obliged to devote all his energies to the task of defending New Orleans As this crowning triumph of Jacksons career is well known to our readers a glance at this battle will suffice On December 8 and 28 he inflicted severe defeats on the English outside the city On January 8t 1815 Sir Edward Packenham the English commander having been so strongly reenforced felt that he could vanquish the American forces With H 000 veteran thoroughly disciplined troops he advanced upon the small column of 4000 raw militia under Jacksons command but suffered a crushing defeat Packenham and his second in command Gen Gibbs were killed Two thousand wounded and slain were leftby the British on the field while the loss of the Americans was only seven killed and six wounded From this time on the popularity of Gen Jackson was limited by no boun dories On the cession of Florida to the United States by Spain lie

Sullivflhlnrhis sweetheart us he thrust n long iron rod down into the beach of Cos tello hay In Contieuiara in search of the small kegs of illicit whisky which he hAil hidden in the sand two weeks previously Sheila was walking in the water up to her ankles mid helping her lover disinter the liquor The spume of the sea smote her fair cheeks and the wind played with her dark hair as she threw n keg of whisky far up the beach Thats ten and the last Jerry said Sheila as she rail tip the beach and drew from its hiding place in the bog a frail canoe tirade of canvas with light ashen ribs Dragging the boat down to the waters edge they placed the ten small kegs along time keel of the boat ran her bow first into the water and jumped in at the boat slid gently out into the bay They were on their way to the Arran islands ten miles away to be married b1 rather ODonohue on St Patricks day Doth Jerry and his sweetheart were skillful with the oars having been reared at the waters edge They had chosen St Patricks day for their nuptials because of their abounding faith in the kindly patronage of tile renowned saint Scarcely had they passed the shelter of the island of Trebane and entered the broad bay of Galway when Jerry looking backward saw n boat containing four men inhot pursuit God help us Sheila the police are alter IIsl he exclaimed Pray to the blessed St Patrick 2 Jerry said Sheila for we have both men and the sea to fight this night Mending their muscular backs to the oars the frail craft fairly flew at the im pulse the rising wind did all it could to impede their progress but on they sped until darkness fell It was a mall race with love and romance on one side and the law on the other and the police boat was slowly gaining livery nerve and muscle was strained in the race The lithe oars bent until they threatened to break Jerrys cap blew off and went bobbing away over the waves Sheilas hair blew out like a black banner on the wind The salt spray swept over them in sheetsI the rifle here Sheila Shall I try a shot said Jerry No no Jerry she replied that would be murder Pray to the blessed St Patrick and pull The police boat was only fifty feet astern and they had already been called on to surrender when the boat grounded in a cove at the upper end of the largest Arran island and they jumped into the water mid disappeared in the darkness leaving the boat and its contents in the Kinds of the police The islands of Arran are situated in the bay of Galway near the western coast of Ireland The largest of the islands Innithmore is nine miles long It is a desolate inhospitable rock in the sea where famine is a frequent visitor The illicit whisky distillers in Conne mara ten miles away make the island their base of supplies The western side of the island fdclng the sea consists of a stupendous escarpment of rock rising sheer front the water varying from 200 to 400 feet in height At intervals along the cliff holes have been forced through the rock by the attrition of the water When the wind blows hard from the west the water is forced through these holes and bursts in a column fifty feet thick through the surface of the rock frequently to the height of 100 feet It is heartquaking to see one of these spout ing boles as they are called by the islanders in full play Bryan Kilmartin the strongest man in the island at the time our story opens lived in n cottage n few hundred feet from the edge of the cliff In the rear of the cottage there was n jagged hole in the rock fifty feet wide and of unknowu depth No man had the courage to examine the hole for there issued from it sued strange noises of groaning and bel lowing that the superstitious Islanders believed the cavern to be occupied by a dragon There was a legend on the island to the effect that when St Patrick ban ished the dragons from Ireland the biggest of time dragons GOO feet long swam across the bay of Galway to Arran As the good saint was hot pn the dragons trail the beast jumped down the hole in L Kilmartins yard and hind been imprisoned there ever since Bryan erected A high stone wall around the hole and Mrs Kilmartin used it as a receptacle for re fuse A few venturesome visitors from the mainland peered timorously into the yawning chasm but the islanders left it to the care of its dragon inhabitant The evening previous to St Patricks day was marked by a storm of excep tional violence A northeast gale was raging All day the big waves had been hurled against the gigantic cliffs of the island beating like fine shot against the windows of Kilmartins cottage Tis a vild night said Bryan peer ing out upon the storm tossed beach God help the poor fellow thats out of doom tbis night Ellen more turf Scarcely had Bryan seated himself beside the glowing turf fire when he heard a sharp metallic sound as of fron striking the window pane This was followed by a low whistle which brought Ikyau to leis feet It was time danger signal known to all time dwellers on this desolate rock in the ocean Bryan seized his cap and vanished in tire darkness When he had walked 100 feet he heard cite whistle again from the shelter of a stone wall and was joined by a Ulan muAeS fc the eye by heavy cot a taU heavily hunt roan panting from recent exertion lie wiw Jerry Sullivan From behind it rock Ue drew a wnian wrapped i lift peasant IQtit Tiii Sheila jMkloae of JTreUne o Bryan wild be We came across the by this evening to be married by Father ODonohue on Patricks day We landed I at the upper eiflt of the lisland with ten kegs of whisky hut the police captured I the boat and the whisky We have beets hiding in the rocks They nre searching I the island for me This is the third time Bryan If they catch me I mn good tor three years Sheila will be safe with your wife They wont touch her Could you put me in the card Bryan hesitated The cave was situated in the face of the cliff 100 feet from tine top Nnoe but the most daring climbers had ever tried to reach it and then only in daylight Could you do it Jerryasked Bryan Tis n fearful job almost sure death Theres one chance said Jerry and Im willing to try it The cave is Only place where I would be safe Ithe True for you ferry said Bryan I They could not get you there If you i 10ii I cliff and walt there Three or four of its will join you in an hour Oh Jerry Jerry dont go acushlal You are going to your death What will I do without you moaned Sheila Arrah dont talk like that mavour neenl replied Jerry Youll take the heart out of me Take her Bryan till I come back And with an embrace andI I theIentered the cottage put source sods of turf a piece of bacon and some potatoes in a bag and ask no questions Ellen1 he continued to his daughter you go out and get Rafferty OBrien Malloy and Rcardon Whisper that I want them and theyre to say nothing The women obeyed without question Half an hour later four grim resolute men sat around Kilmartins fire Poor fellow said OBrieji alluding to Sullivan after Bryant had told them tine story Im afraid Sheila will never have him here again I wouldnt go down that rock tonight for forty women Hear that now The group leaned forward 1111 listened interjalsof the surge beating against the cliffs a quarter ofa mile away The cottage rocked in the furry of the gale Hell never get into that cave said Malloy The wind will blow him away like a feather Gant we find some other place to hide him All the other hiding places on the island were carefully gone over but as each was known to the coastguard it was reluctantly abandoned It was nearing midnight when the five men two of them staggering under the weight of a long rope crept out into the storm Tire wind howled and the rain drenched thcm as they toiled along to the cliff They were forced to stumble in the darkness as a lanternwould have attracted the at tention of a coast guard But so familiar were the men with the land that they soon arrived at the point in the cliff just over the cave Put these matches in your tobacco pouch said Bryant to Sullivan as the latter emerged from under a rockwhere he hind been hiding Here boys help me tie this bag on his back I Malloy take off his shoes Now Jerry do you still insist Theres ten chances against you to one for you Tis my only mope replied Jerry resolutely although his voice trembled as he crossed himself devoutly and prayed to St Patrick for success Each man shook his bead as Sullivan lay down face to the rock seizing the rope and began to work himself gradually over time brink of the precipice Just before he disap peared Bryan said Well lower you twenty feet Then well stop a second Thatll be five stops you will make before you reach the cave Goodby and good luck Well see how youre getting along after the storm Sullivan disappeared Sitting in the loop at the end of time rope lIe felt him self sliding down the face of the cliff The waves roared in an awful caldron beneath him The rope began to twist To overcome this he placed his stockings against the rock and pushed himsslf out over the abyss The rope was lowered gently ever twenty feett then came a pause and at each step Jerry forced him self outward like n living pendulum over the snarling yeast below Drenched with spray and deafcited by the horrible clamor of the elements he kept going down aU the tine swinging outward and inward until he swung stunned and exhausted into the mouth of the cave When he had scrambled to his feet he lied a sod of turf to the rope as a signal that he had arrived safely and a minute later it was drawn to the surface Sullivan found himself in a hole in the rock about ten feet square The darkness wits intense but he managed to feel his way along finding that time cave tended diagonally upward and inward Striking a match the light was reflected from the walls of a large chamber Sul limit started a fire with the turf which he carried in the bag dried his clothing then lay down to fall asleep and dreamed that Sheila was rocking home Innn enormous cradle When the fugitive awoke refreshed he fried some bacon on a stick and roasted potatoes in the embers of time fire Then crawling down toward the mouth of the cave he found that tho storm hind increased in violence cold that the waves were gradually invading his rocky prison This did not alarm him how ever as he thought the storm would surely abate In a short time He put more turf on time fire lit his pipe and toasted his shins mean while indulging in those fond anticipations so dear to the hearts of lovers He sissy the face of hit beloved in the glowing embers slid felt the caressing touch of liar bagels t GrowingI tired of hta enforced nuctivt ty be made R torch of some abedgrass which he found JR thecaye and started to explore his prison To liis amazement he found that the cave connected with a rocky shaft leading to the surface through which he could see the sky Returning to the fire a look of terror came into his eyes as he saw a rivulet of water steal up to the embers and heard the hot coals hiss nngrily at the intrusion Glancing around he saw that the floor of the cave was rapidly turning into a lake Each booming assault of the sea was followed by a deeper influx of water until he stood ankle deep in the rippling tide There was u horrible fascination for the fugi ji tire in the insidious increase of the flood It flowed so gently each minute deeper and deeper until it growingI knees The darkness was so intense he could not see his hand held closethatI fore his face But as each wave he could hear the water trickle away in faint gurgles Then there came a horri ble bursting roar and the flood passed him again reaching his ellcomI Tine storm was at its height as dimwit of St Patricks day began to break over the heaving waters A hundred miles at sea a giant wave had sped ward urged by a 70 knot gale It eastI along raining in momentum with mile and swallowing the lesser waves to add to its bulk until it assumed the proportions ofII tidal wave With the thunder ofa bursting planet it crashed against the cliffs of Arran Sullivan heard its mighty impact he felt the greedy flood tear him from the rock j there was an awful roaring in his ears I and like a chip in a mill race he was I borne along in the heart of the torrent I M to R It was a night of terrible anxiety in Kilmartins cottage but what alarmed the inmates more that anything were the awful noises issuing from the dragons cavern Never had such sounds come from it before Tine storm has weakened the baste exclaimed Mrs Kilmartin Well all be swallowed before the mornin In terror the family fell upon their knees and prayed for the protection of St Patrick against the dragon which was expected to make its appearance every minute Just as the grey dimwit broke in mist and spume over the island the big wave hurled itself against the cliffs There was such grumbling and hissing from the cavern that the inmates j of the cottage threw themselves upon their faces while from the hole there burst a cataract of water which inundated the cottage and burst open the door When Bryan mustered up courage to get upon his feet he uttered an exclamation of surprise and delight for there across the threshold lay the body of Jerry Sulli van His right leg was broken yet he was alive but unconscious Tis my Jerry and not the dragon screamed Sheila taking the head of herii lover in her lap The blessed Patrick has made a hole between the cave and the dragons cavern and the I water brought him back to me Glory be but Ill say 40 ayes a day

Waterford The questions of the Industrial Schools and the late circular issued by Dublin Castle formed the subject of animated discussion in the House of Commons re cently It was initiated by Mr Dillcn Time Irish members maintained that the beneficent work done by the industrial schools during the past thirty years ought to determine the Government to refrain from interfering with one of the few institutions in Ireland which cou ferred solid benefits on the people In the course of the discussion the Irish members contended for wide and gener ous interpretation of the law such as had been given to it usually by the magis trates since I8G8 They did not contend that the strict letter of the law had beenI j adhered to though some of them main tained that under the terms of the act itself the Magistrates were justified in admitting children to its benefits merely on time ground of i destitution ThY view was traversed toy Hie Government which claimed that tint act had been pac6elsum Mended foe the baSi of1children living in contact with criminals M a means ofr waving them from falling Into crime and Chit property it couldl only be applied to n I seemed to have the most weight with theII children of this class The point I Chief Secretary was the fact that a hum ber of children who according to his view should find n refuge in the poor houses and become chargeable on the Irish rates were sent to the Industrial Schools where the Imperial taxpayer was i obliged to contribute something toward theirsupport In addition there was the tisiiil1 hypocritical pretense that the ac tenon of the Government was taken in be half of the semi criminal children who it was alleged were shut out of the schools which here really intended for Ii their benefit Hot the slightest proof was adduced in upport of this allegations which could only have any importance in the case of Dublin and Belfast as the two centres where n large criminal popu lation is only to foe found The effect of the Government contention if it is carried out in practice will be to exclude from the benefitr of the industrial schools the children of the destitute poor in the counties Sergeant Hemphitl Very prop erly pointed out that the Irish Magistrates were not bound to interpret the law ac cording to the instructions from Dublin Castle and he contendedl that the words of the Act would fully justify the Irish Magistrates in continuing to send desti tute children to the industrial schools at least until such tine as the exact meaning of the act should he defined by one of the higher courts of law It is to be hoped that this hint will be acted upon and that the Irish Magistrates will refuse to allow themselves to be browbeaten by Dublin Castle The AttorneyGeneral for Ircand assumed the responsibility having advised the Irish Government in its crusade against the Industrial Schools as at present organized and if his narrow interpretation of the law he the correct one no child has a right to be sheltered in the Industrial School unless he tins himself touched the friirge of crime and in addition either has the distinction of being an orphan or the child of a parent suffering pedal servitude If this reading of the law is to be made retrospect lye as to the children committed the re suit will be disastrous to the whole sys tem as it would have the effect of practically emptying the schools of their present inmate- sVALUABLE DISCOVERY Perfect Cist on Exhibition Unique Museum Attraction In the Royal Irish Academy section of the National Museum there now finds place an ancient tomb of a type known to antiquarians as a cist which is said to be the most perfect specimen of its kind ever unearthed and put on view The find was made in the neighborhood of Tallaght County Dublin by a gang of workmen who while engaged in cutting into a bank in a gravel pit suddenly came upon a roughly flattened flag This stone sliding down disclosed a sepulchral chamber containing immcinnry urns This dst is almost squareshaped it is about thirty inches along each side its walls being composed of slabs of stone bearing the marks of rough chipping The cover or roof of the cist is in itself peculiar On a flat stone two inclosed stones are superimposed They form a ridge and at the sides project like eaves the idea evidently being to lessen the effects of the jpercolation of moisture into the interior of the Gist In the chamber were three urns in shape like flower pots with reentering brims to prevent the scattering of the contents if the vessels fell en the side The largest pot about a foot tight was inverted over an urn about tlr size of a teacup and in the latter wer found the remains of burnt bpnes Ai empty urn about eight inches high stocl upright in a corner of the chamber When found it was empty but is thought to have contained a food olfering All these vesselswere decorated with triangular linear and rectangular nicks but show no trace of coloring The medium sized vessel which is extruiiely well baked has a familiar reddish hue Viewed at some distance the urns give the impression of basketwork This valuable discovery was treated by the Royal Irish Academy with a sort of stealthy care They got the laborers to cut right through the gravel bank at the hack of the cist and transported to the museum the entire section of ground containing Ute chani lher The removal lasted nearly thirty six hours It was a ticklish job for the gravel section weighed over three tons and to preserve it intact it hint to be cased like a slab of honey As exhib ited in the Museum the cist is embedded in a bank measuring about five by five by three feet The door flag is down so that the interior of the chamber and the pots can be viewed Antiquarians who have seen the Gist say that its date is about 500 B Cand a Professor of Trin ity College who ins made an examina tion of the human remains in the small est urn states that the burnt bones are those of an adult Who or what he was there is no indication of for in such finds no written record or decipherable characters can be or are expected to be brought to light A description of the cist and its urns is soon to be submitted to the Royal Irish Academy for publication CONCERT FOR MT ST BENEDICT A musical event of interest will shortly take place at Llederkranz Hall the pro ceeds of which will be devoted to the

stalking with angels A baby was sleeping Its mother was weeping For her husband was far on the wild rag ing sea And the tempest waft swelling Round the fishermans dwelling And she cried Dennot darling 0 come back to me Her beads while she numbered The baby still slumbered And smiled in her face as she bended her kneeOh be that warning My child thy sleep adorning For I know that the angels are

the ancient capital of Ireland it happened to be on the eve ot Easter The time had come when all the fires were to be extinguished that after u while they might be relighted by the sacred torch consecrated to the heathen gods In the intervall of hallowed dark ness suddenly there appeared a brilliant light at the top of the Slope of Chariots The sparks and flames rose from the mys terious camp of profanation the ancient faith of Tara Who had dared to pro fane time sacred darkness by unholy fires What bold blasphemer ventured to light the torch until the flame had been brought from time altar of the gods The warriors grasped their anus and rushed up the hill to tear time infidel to pieces They seized him and dragged him down to the hall of judgment but nIl the while he kept reciting prayers to the unknown God and when brought before the assembly of enraged idolators St Patrick who for seven years had been Milchos herdsman slave stood forth like the heroic Paul and answered for himself In his lonesome captivity St Patrick Had learned to love the Irish people and with the bur den of salvation he hurl traversed the great plains from the mouth of the Boyne to the Slope of the Chariots lIe stood and preached to them all night from the birth of the stars to the grand ascension of the sun lIe spoke as never man hind spoken in Tara lie told them the story of the blessed Nazarene of the Blessed Trinity Father Son and Holy Ghost of Baptism of the Eucharist of all the sublime faith of the Church of Rome Towards daylight the people began to believe and fell into debate one with an other The archDruid the king and two beautiful maidens were converted and baptized The tumult increased time true fires of heaven were blazing in the dark valley of paganism and St Patrick preached on until time daydawn began to reveal the course of the Blackwater the Boyne amid the hills of Cavan and the heights of Slaue But time people could not understand the strangeness of the Trinityhow three persons should con stitute one God and with daylight their hearts began to return to their idols Suddenly the apostle caught Up a sprig of shamrock which had been holdingup its triple palms in the adoration of the one true God and then holding it forth be showed the people that three leaves growing from a single stock constitute but one Instantly time quickwitted people understood the mystery they rushed upon the apostle and would have carried him on their shoulders and from that hour time faith of Patrick was planted in the Irish heart and that faith since has never fell

Monday March i and that wherever a contest is to IIjj place the polling will be on April utleastlsomegenerally known for while some returning officers have the step of advertising them in the

electipns Ilutthercarosomcdifferences- Candidntts ore to he nominated in writ ing but only one candidate in each paper only a proposer and n seconder ore required in each case and 110 person can nominate more persons than there are vacancies to be filled No share of the official expenses will inUiese local elec lions fall upon any candidate and all electors are entitled to get fret from the returning officers as many nomination papers as they require The places where the nominations are to be handed in are those of which public notice has been given by the returning officers and it should be borne in mind that in the rural districts nominations far both the County Councils and the Uural District Councils will be handed in together and 1n urban districts those for the County Councils mid the Hoards of Guardians As to the polling it will be as at Parliamentary elections under the ballot nod the polls will be taken at the same timefn the rural districts for County and District Councils and in the urban districts for County Councilors and Guardians Each voter as he enters his boothwill be handed two papers of different colors one for a County Councillor anil one for a Guardian as the case may he null every voter should remember that he will spoil his vote if tic votes for more County Councilors than one or for more District Councillors than two or for more Guardians than are allotted to the particular warn or other polling district As to the number of Guardians to be elected in any place he ought to find out the fact before he enters the booth but if he does not he will learn from life Instruc flans in the booth The arrangements as to polling agents have been altered since the first regulations on the subject Were issued and we believe that now it has been determined that each candidate may appoint one agent for each polling station provided 1 he gives notice of the appointment t beforehand It remains to mention that although there is no limi

muse have been mostly in the sphere of religion and temperance Father Casey has occasionally given proof that he would have been a marked success had he devote himself to the field of wit and humor in song and bal lad The following which is one of his latest will we venture to say bear us out in this opinion We may explain that the Bard of the Suck II is a title given to the reverend poet by some of his clerical brethren Though hardly necessary for Irish born readers we may add that Athleague is situated on the Suck one of the tributaries of the Shan non the largest river of Ireland Pour aniItwenty long years How short it appears And no one then envied my luck Since I first came to dwell I remeuiberit well And to toil by the banks or the Sac Much leisure was mine None asked me to dine On a turkey a goose or a duck- I began then to write Sonic verses by night And soon they flowed on like the Suck I with Tyndall began Then as temperance man A blow at the bottle I struck And hammer and tongs Made temperance songs That are sung by the Shannon and Suck They arc simple and plain And yet they contain Advice which if topers but took Theyd remember with praise The temperance lays Composed b5 The Bardof the Suck II l1 IEsimple my stratn i dne comfort remains I never a duty forsook To seek or to claim Either honor or fame For the verses I made by the Suck I said if I could Do my people some good By zeal perseverance and pluck I would fill up my days With better than praise From the pensants who dwell by the Suck 1 am now growing old And am oftentimes told How fresh and how youthful I look j No wonder say I In iihstant reply Theyve left me so long on the Suck When I die as I trust The death of the just Since for pardon and mercy I look t May my soul wing its flight To the floods of delight A happy exchange for the Suckl LENTEN MISSIONS Two largelyattended missions are iri progress in the city At St Patricks church the Passionist Fathers Naubert and Henry are
