Those Banished Were Figurative May Have Deer in the Island in Ancient Times Avoid the Irish Soil STORY OF MOSES AND THE PRINCE It is agjat puzzle to many why it is Hhat there are no snakes in Ireland though they exist in England across the channel where the soil and climate are about the same Indeed of the two countries Ireland seems Jto be the most naturally favorable to the existence of snakes where the land is so grassy boggy and marshy says Mr John Hoare in the Colorado Catholic- A Canadian once told me how timid he felt when walking through the mead ows in Ireland he could not be convinced that there were no snakes still it is a fact that not only arc there no native snakes in Ireland but foreign ones can not be naturalized there No imported snake can live upon Irish soil twentyfour hours so they say We are accustomed to all kinds of fences In Ireland we have seen the stone walls double ditches and white thorn hedges through which a small bird could hardlyI pass Here we have board fences picket fences pole fences barbed wire fences in the mountains as in the timbered districts of the East and Canada we use the famous worm fence and we have read of the rabbit fences it New Zealand but who has ever heard offence a to turn snakes The story is told of such a fence bein tirade by an Irish convict who became wealthy land owner in Australia He im ported a ship load of Irish soil and with it built a snake fence about his farm it was not necessary that it should be very wide or high all that was required was that it form a continuous unbroken tine around his Intnl It proved an effective barrier against the encroachment of I anaktanetUertWtldtlCIrtpk that were on his land be driven out These however were nil killed off amHie was r the only fanner in the colony that en joyed Irish immunity from snakes The belief is common among the Irish that snakes once inhabited Ireland in great numbers bnt were banished forever by St Patrick History however is no very clear upon this point Many legends are told about St Patrick and the snakes One is to the effect that as St Patrick approached the Irish coast he beheld the island encircled by a ring of demons in the shape of serpents Dut perhaps the chief of all the tales related about St Patrick and the snakes is that of the meeting of our saint and the ser pent in the neighborhood of Lough NeaghMonster said St Patrick addressing the serpent why tarry thou here when the rest of thy tribe hath departed- I am occupying my inheritance re turned the serpent t Depart commanded St Patrick Whither will I go asked the snake To the lough said St Patrick For how long queried the snake Until Monday replied St Patrick The monster made no reply but glid ing swiftly towards the great lake dis appeared in its depths But when Mot day arrived he came forth again from the bosom of the lake and glided over the green earth with head erect eyes aflame and breathing fire St Patrick observing him took the Bachall losa Staff o Jesus advanced to meet Miter and ac roster him thus- Monster dost thou dare come forth again to taint this Christian atmosphere a with your poisonous breath Did I not order you to yonder lake Only till Monday answered the serpent and is not today Monday There are many Mondays in a year L replied St Patrick and many years ii- a hi century today is the beginning of the Christian week when the sons of men may resume their dairy labor after their rest on the Sabbath but your Monday will mark the end of time and the con mencement of eternity then yon mar come forth and gather your harvest turn therefore to the bottom of U lake and do not rise and show your head again till the day of judgment And at St Patricks command the demon went back to the lake muttering as he disappeared beneath thewaves Is fads Horn stad go Laun it is long to walt Jill Monday But at the sound of Ga briels trumpet this satanic viceroy of Pagan Ireland will coupe forth from his haunts among the submerged tides Lough Neagh to claim all the unfaithful children of St Patrickc The illustrions Dr Geoffrey Keatingr whose ashes lie in the little churchyard of Lubrid County Tipperary expressed the opinion that St Patricks connec lIon with Ibe fenakes was figurative ml meant the banishment or overthrow of the demons that held Ireland in their evil grasp until the light of Christianity through St Patrick dispelled the dark ness of Pagnanism He Keating does 1 es snakIiiir j extinction not to St Patrick but strange as it may seem to Moses and in proof of this quote an ancient legend It occurred in this way When the Israelates were traveling through the desert on their way to the promised land they encountered to powerful andwarlike tribe who spoke th Gaelic tongue one of the languages supposed to have orignated at the tower of Babel and who like themselves were traveling in search ofa promised land that is a western island that was vividly pictured to their King in a dream Now this King had an only son whose name was Gael andas they were en camped close to the Israelites a poison ous snake bit him on the neck leaving a ghastly wound that continued to in encase as the Jpoison spread and which baffled the skill of the physicians to cure Having heard of the fame of Moses the King sent for him and besought him to save the life of the young Prince Moses readily complied and by his praye healed the wound which left in its place a green spot hence he was called Gael1 gins Green Gael anglicized Gadehis The King having expressed his deep felt gratitude Moses promised young Gael that vherever his posterity should settle the lead would be free from al poisonous reptiles This Prince was the- great ancestor of the Milesian Irish wh o were also caller an Clan na Gael or Ga delians =that is the children of Gael1 glas or Gadelas And so Moses promise has been fulfilled in IrelandCIt will also be seen how natural it is for Irishmen to wear the green especially about the neck where it was indelibly marked upon their ancestors by an Ara Ulan snake about four thousand years ago MISS WINNIE RIDGES One of the Brightest Young Girls of the East End Passes Away Miss Winnie

An Honor Questioned and Even Denied by AntiIrish Historians FULLY ATTESTED BY TilE RECORDS Thirtyseven years ago on March 23 1802 was fought the celebrated battle off Winchester Va The Federal army under the distinguished IrishAmerican General James Shields whose status adorns the National Gallery in Wash- Ington n gift of the people of Missouri the National Government completely the Confederate forces under the great Stonewall Jackson who suffered JOs0 prisoners and 1000 stands of small arms There has been a disposition to detract from Gen Shields in histories by com pletely ignoring the battle of Winchester history which does not mention victory at Winchester makes nown the fact that Shields was defeated by Jackson about May 1802 Now I unless it can be shown that Shields a 11k1n 1 dominated all the Confederate forces on the same field ifon this occasion he 1was a subordinate and not the real com planbutmon honesty would suggest that responsibility for the result should be placed on the shoulders of the man who was in su prime command that is Gen Banks In that campaign under Banks the Union army was so divided and the divisions were so detached and so scattered over the valley as to make concerted eyesaw the blunder and promptly turned iit to his advantage Placing himself between the converging columns of Banks Shields Milroy and Fremont he struc one after another and with his united gtranlinarmy was then defeated Itwas bad general ship no doubt but it was not Shields eneralship He did not boss the sit- uatIon t at that time At Winchester on the contrary

field at the time of action he having been called to beganTlit llegitimate fruits of Shields plan of operations strategy and execution and to victoryFrom n from Appletons Annual 1802 Cycle paedia which was edited by the late Charles A Dana then Assistant Secretary of War it will be readily seen that Gen Shields the hero of the Mexican and civil wars was the first and the only man that ever crossed swords succebsfull with Stonewall Jackson Winchester was evactuated by Stone wall Jackson on the night of March 11 Shields soon followed up this retreatt and on the 10th he discovered Jackson

garrisonItattacked the pickets of Shields and drove them in but was repulsed by a small force pushed forward by Shields for that purpose who now made preparations for a contest in the morning Shields ordered openfireThis had the desired effect when a battle ensued during which Shields by an attack upon the Confederate left flank forced that wing back upon its center and placed the enemy to be routed by a general attack which was made at 5 oclock in the afternoon with a great success The Confederates were driven from loth0r caissons prisoners 1000 stands of small arms The force of Shields was between 7000 and 8000 of which he lost in killed and wounded between 300 and 400 The Confederate loss was large The brigades of Gens Jackson Smith Gar nett and Longstreet were engaged

Communications to the KENTUCKY IRISII AMERICAN 326 West Ureen Street I LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY APRIL 8 1899 THE KENTUCKIANSWEAKNESS If there is anything that distinguishes the Kentuckian it is his gallantry and indulgence to woniel- Vherever he may be and whatever the surroundings and circumstances this is so clearly manifested that the Kentuckian can be poiute- out among a thousand It is the one of his many good traits most admired and which the Kentuckian holds as the first and ultimate test I of manhood He who would trea a woman disrespectfully has no standing as a man among Ken tuckians It matters not whom the woman may be the Kentuckian respects a womannot because of her wealth beauty dress social1 standing character or even color but solely because she is a woman His whole nature revolts at and his ever ready to resent the slightestt discourtesy to her And the Ken tucky women as a natural result offp this characteristic of the men nottt only accept graciously such gal lantry courtesy and solicitude fo their safety convenience and comfort but as a matter of fact if nott as an essential attribute of the gen tleman although other women ma regard it as unpardonable officious ness and impertinence The Ken tucky woman expects men to respect serve indulge and give upt everything to her and the men alliI but unanimously uphold and en courage her in the demaud We could not disapprove of thi Kentucky idea and custom if we woulu ecause we are 11111 the same weakness of all Kentuckians for women and like them though we sometimes think the women frequently impose on good l manners and deserve a rebuk- rather than courtesy we just cant help at least not condemning them But the women do at time- abuse the privileges accorded them and though the men submit to iit silently and evenly politely here iit would likely be emphatically resented as unladylike by any other span than a Kentuckian who though he feels keenly the imposi tion impoliteness and injustice ofJJ the womens conduct and may be angered thereat is restrained byJJ j his respect for her from doing or saying anything that could be construed as offensive While this adds to the credit of the men it is cer tainly discreditable to the women The Kentuckian may overlook it or at best give it only a passing j I thought but others note and com 1 ment on it In theaters public places street cars everywhere with rare exceptions is this universal courtesy and indulgence of men toJJ women practiced and more or lessII j abused by the women A little forethought and consideration by I the women would go far to lessen the abuse of a custom of which every Kentuckian is proud and innitr sorelyA case in point On Sunday aftetnoou a street car nearly filled in which were several men was stopped by a crowd of about fifteen r women who crowded in All of theI+ men but two promptly arose and gave up their seats The two men all unconscious retained their seats during the trip allowing several of the women to standEvery woman will vote those two men brutes and nearly every man without a moments hesitation will indorse the verdict and the few men who do not will uot argue the case but allow the verdict to stand by M default Yet calmly reasonably J on the basis of right justice true politeness were not those women a wrong in crowding into that car in stead of waiting for the next Or if they would take that car what right had they to expect anyone to nvais only thoughtless on the part of the women and the men who did not so regard it aud give up their seats coursedthey are No use to argue iit further RETAIN THE PARKS tTheBoard of Park Commissioners I have decided to give up Logan and Kenton Places the small parks in1t East and West Market streetthe 1sites formerly occupied by the mar kethousesou condition that the 1city and Street Railway Company reimburse the board for the amount expended on the parks some 5000 boardeI is that the people living in the vicinities do not use the parks I much This is undoubtedly true but they are used and enjoyed by I the children as play groundsand- r I play grounds are limited in those I localities and there are no other I parks near by These small parks I are crowded with the little ones in sofay I mer and if properly shaded would I be enjoyed by young and old during I the hot days as well Not only should those parks be retained but we should have more like them in the thickly settled districts even I though they be only vacant spaces where the children can romp and play instead of dodging pedestrians o t11 i ia 1dEhi lWn1hc street to the annoyance of the public and danger to the children A place to play without such interruption would be a godsend to the ofethis city and contribute to their health and morals ParksBoards proposition will cost the city about 10000 refunding the amount expended on the parks and reconstructing the street Nor is this all There is likely another demand on the city to grow out of this and if not granted a lawsuit The oppositionfor there is and has been opposition since the city gave those plots for parksto maintaining those small parks dates from the time the markethouses were removed The property owners on each side of those squares where the street is wider than elsewhere I on Market street donated several feet off the depth of their lots to the city for the location of the market houses When the markethouses were removed the claim was made that the city pay for the donated ground and a suit was talked of and only averted by the majority of the property owners being persuaded to sign an agreement allowing the use of the market space for parks in lieu of market houses The minority of the prop erty owners urged on by lawyers have never been reconciled but have always objected on one pretext or another to the parks They seem to have won over the ParkI Boardand unless the city authori ties are careful what seems only a trivial matter of a few thousand dollars may prove not only costly but the cause of much annoyance and litigation Better let the little ones have Kenton and Logan Places Such practices as were resorted to at the Democratic mass meeting Saturday may be 1 shrewd poli tics but will not do the Demo cratic party any good The people outside of the few directly in terested in the results of the contest are decidedly tired of it zoJ 0rA rt IoIit 1 J With our banks overflowing with money to be loaned on good secur ity as low as 3 per cent the addi tier of over 8000000 in payment- of the whisky pipe foundry car works and other deals has prompt ed the question what is to be done with it and all of the daily papers pointing out the many advantagess and opportunities of Louisville for investors express regret and sur prise that none of this money has been or seems likely to be applied to developing or increasing our manufactures or commerce Regret this as we may we are not in th least surprised at the manifest hesitancy of business men to invest their money in Kentucky Until the people elect a Legislature that will enact tax and other laws relating to capital that are not a stand ing warning notice that everyone investing money in the State is to be held up robbed and treated asaa common outlaw capital will continue to leave here and be invested I in the development of the manufac I turing commercial and generalen enriching of other States The American people capitalists includ ed fib not relish being plundered We agree with the Evening Post thatlithe proposition to issue a trillion dollar bonds at this time for any purpose whatever should be re enoughI comImerce grown up to our present park sys tem before we issue a million dollars lof bonds We should improve our park system without further burdening the taxpayers The ParkIworth and that sum would make not only the needed improvements for those we now possess but many others in the parts of the city occu pied by the laboring classes Resolutions protesting against an alliance of the United States with Great Britain are undoubtedly pre mature since no one with authority has proposedsucli a ttiingT But then the American generally speaks his

error There are sixtyfive Cardinals of various rank five Cardinal Bishops fiftyfive Cardinal priests and five Cardinal deacons Of these twentynine onlare Italians Spanishfivescattering enough to make thirtysix non Italian Cardinals The recent critical illness of good Pope Leo attracted attention to the subject of the election of the next Pope and the question arose as to whether the Italian Cardinals were in a majority or not Reference to the list of Cardinals shows areInfact however as regards the nationality of candidates for the Papacy A majority of twothirds is required for the election of a Pope and there are enough Italian Cardinals to place a veto on time choice of a majority It is not known to time outer nationalityhasat a Papal election The secrets of that grave bodare

few weeks ago his new oratorio The Resurrection was pro 7luced in Milan and like its three pre decessors made a tremendous impression Not only musical Italy but all musical Europe is stirred up over the remark able work of this youthful clerical musi cian who has thrown into the shade for the time being at least his fellowcoun trymen the opera composers of the new Italian school the Moscagnes the Leon cnrvnllos the Fuccinis and their asso ciates So remarkable and productive is his genius that it is said within the short space of a twelvemonth he has given time world four magnificent oratorios

he is said to be plain and dig nified and so far has used his wonderful talent in the sole service of his creator He has so won the Popes patronage and good will that he stands today Maestro di Cappella at the Sistine Chapel a distinc tion in itself dearer to him than the ap lplause of delighted followers Christian Scientists declare that by the exercise of will power we may cure our selves ofany disease We must simply concentrate our mind on the fact that we are not ill and presto we are well Scientists are trying to prove that too much thinking about any particular organ may lead to a disease of that organ The celebrated Dr Carpenter is believed to be the first to demonstrate by experiment that concentrating the mind on a special part of the body will lead to hypermia with sensations of tingling It is not difficult to understand that directing the mind toward sonic particu lar part of the organishi may alter the blood supply of that part and so modify materially its nutrition If this be possi ble it is not at all unlikely according to the London Lancet that morbid changes may result from or be predis posed to by these slight beginnings In a clinical lecture recently delivered in St Georges Hospital two cases were quoted wherein increased growth of a tumor appeared to follow the continued concentration of the patients attention on those parts It has occasionally happened that a physician or surgeon who has paid par ticular attention to the disease of Some one organ or legion of the body ulti mately suffers from an affection of the same part It is said that the game of dominoes was invented by ttwo monks who had been committed to a lengthy seclusion and who tried to beguile the lonely hours away without breaking the rule of silence i by showing each other flat rocks with black dots marked on them By a preconceived arrangement the winner would inform the other players of his victory by repeating in an undertone the first line of the vesper prayer In process of time the two monks managed to complete the set of stones and to per fect the rules of the game so that when the term of incarceration had expired the game was so interesting that it was generally adopted by the inmates of the monastery as on innocent and amusing pastime It soon spread front town to town and became popular throughout Italy The first line of the vespers was reduced to the single word Domino by which name the game has ever since been known When the hen announces morning Then the home will be destroyed So says the Chinese classic for girls The sentence is quoted from their Book of History written more than two thou sand years ago but it iis as applicable now in China as it was then Few people in the world have more reason for coining such a sentence than have the Chinese as their present Empress Dowager is uni Versally detested and her existence is deplored Eastern papers occasionally give us insight into the wanton cruelty of this female Herod Few countries have more reason for dreading woman rule than China The iron hand of a Cather ine and the cruel heartless injustice of an Elizabeth and the wantonness ofa Cleopatra were mild and insignificant at least from our point of view when com pared to this fiendish Empress Heads have been knocked off at her whim property confiscated limbs burdened with manacles and shackles of iron and persons have fled in terror to other coun tries merely to be able to save their lives so terrible is her rule The usurpation of the present Empress Dowager is more remarkable than that of any of her predecessors or as they have been called her prototypes because living in a store civilized generation than they and be cause of her own free will she stops all progress to the Empire In the second place she has representatives of all the great nations of the world at her capital men appointed not to her government but to that of the Emperor whose govern v nient she has usurped Again it is re markable because not one of the minis ters of these governments has offered to withdraw or suggested the impropriety of his remaining minister at the court o H usurper Again she represents the conservative party which is hostile to all the interests of their own and all these other governments and yet no one dare say nay to any of her projects or ideas She luis the present Emperor iu close confinement burned all the books which he had bought including the Holy Scriptures books on every subject known to science and philosophy banished pr beheaded all his friends and favorites and placed herself on the throne of China What progress this unhappy country can make with such a tyrant at T the head of affairs one can easily imagine It muBtnot b i pp6ied that there are noTrish people jjn China travelers wjf 1 w that the most beautiful features in the I worldare possessed by the children of Irish and Chinese parents The com plexion is of a rich creamy tnt the dark lustrous eyes are not

possible that of marrying with them This stay and undoubtedly will eventually the problem of Chinese trcacherism and idolatry Scientific cltild study has been commenced in the public schools of Chicago and while it has as yet reached no definite stage a beginning has at least been made Physical and psychical examination or tests of school children are now being made and the results are being watched for with larger interest These tests have been begun at the Alcott school whereas normal conditions are thought to exist as anywhere else in the city because the children are well fed well clothed well brought up and their parents while not of the richest class are not of the pool and will average well It is intended to examine ahout one thousand children in all some of them to be taken from the schools in those parts of the city where good sewerage clean strests clean morals and clean things generally are not easy to find When children in all grades of life have been examined an average will be struck and a report made The most notable test now being made is through the ergograph the invention of Prof Mosso of Italy and is for the purpose of determining the storedup nervous energy of the pupil Apart from the ergo graph tests there arc others all of which are deemed essential In the first place the pupil is weighed then his height is carefully taken both standing and sitting The results are then carefully compared and accurately noted Some of the com panions arc peculiar One of the pupils was tall enough tobe three years older than he really was but there was a cor responding increase in weight and all other conditions were nominal In cases where it is found that development is uneven it will be the duty of teachers to see that such children are carefully kept from fatiguing exertion Time hearing is tested by a new device called the audio meter The tests were as follows Case 1 This was far below the average in hearing lIe had been seated in the rear end of the room and was considered dullall be cause he could not hear what was said He was given a front seat and is expected to improve in scholarship Case 2 The ergograph record indicated nervousness Hearing was extremely acute This may cause his lack of attention distractedas he is by hearing sounds not perceptible to other persons The best and most ex perienced teachers say that this improve ment cannot but be productive of good One of these President Benj Andrews says such examinations as these are certainly crying need and this is the first time that scientific child study has been added to a public school system in the United States By the use of the ergograph the school work imposed on children can be gauged and by knowing the strength the nervous force of each child more work given to some less to others and a won derful amount of good done for all Above all faults that exist among the female persuasion backbiting and slan der are the most despicable and most farreaching in their bad effects Cul tured people never stoop to this evil Their minds ruin along a different chan nel and they hardly recognize the odious blast when they hear it Consequently their first impression in hearing such is of a nature not very complimentary to the person assailed on second thought they consider it a mistake and regret having heard the remarks If truly cul tivated a feeling of disgust and contempt for the party making use of illbred re marks will surely follow We do not ever make friends of people who attack the good name of others It is men tioned in the Scripture that some things God despises but one other thing he hates in His heart and that is the whis perer Such whisperers get in their work in silencein the dark as it were and their cowardice is appalling Nothing is more beautiful than sincerity nothing more utterly nauseous and con temptible than double dealing and un truth If from childhood up we strive to point out the singular loveliness of truth and honesty to the little ones under our care we may reasonably hope to find times Will not be subject to the awful fault of backbiting and falsehood De traction is a most unjust and unfair habit as it seeks to destroy ones good name and publishes faults which if they do exist are known only to God and iif they do not exist are an odious imputa tion Nothing su belittles a person of the

first few days of warm weather people are prone to remove their heavy flannels They become warm during the afternoon and think summer is surely here They remove their flannels and as certain as they do so a cold results Time effects of this cold are problematic Pneumonia is just as likely to follow it at this season as at any other and it is much harder to handle Pneumonia is always harder to get under control when the period of convalescence extends into warm weather It is not safe to remove the winter flan nels in this climate until after the middle of April and it is really safer to postpone it until the first of May If the weather be warm before that and it be expedient to wear lighter clothing make time re quired changes in the top clothing and there will be scarcely any danger

the north Irish coast Young Constantine was watching a game between three wild and beautiful beings The three were fourteenyear old Ruby Merritt her new pony and the Atlantic Miss Merritts London groom on a powerful bay mare from the edge of the wet sand surveyed the horizon line with a bored and rigid eye The scene changed Ruby and the pony made a madcap dash far forward and suddenly the pony threw the girl Stunnedand snatched along in the lire sistable retreat of the Atlantic roller her senseless body was borne out to sea Mad with terror the groom no swimmer lashed at the mare and crying for help tore like the wind up the bank and round the rabbit warren in the direction of Port Bairy Constantine ranswam Aided by two fishermen whom the cries of the groom had brought to the spot in time to see eonslunline stagger up the sands with his burden the young man conveyed the girl to Seaview house lie lingered long enough to learn that the doctor who was staying in the house had said Miss Ruby would live then he lounged home Early in the afternoon of the following day the Seaview house party ladies and men were grouped on the small leveled bit of green in front of the house waiting for carriages to come round A mans figure was seen approaching along the brow of the hill My dear said Mrs Merritt to her husband its the young fisherman who rescued Ruby He has put on his Sunday clothes she added Mr Merritt as the young man came up felt his waistcoat pocket Constantine lifted his hat to the ladies- I should be very glad he said ad dressing Mr Merritt to know how Miss Merritt is- Certainly certainly said Mr Mer ritt with an affable air Miss Merritt is progressing most favorably The doc tors orders arc that Miss Merritt is to keep quiet and see no one but her nurse but that is a precautionary measure Im surehumsureyour conduct is most creditable to you Im sureIhum hadnt time to speak toto speak to you yesterday and myself and Mrs Merritt would like VHe handed Constantine a 5 gold pieceThe young man looked at it curiously Then bis eye darted over the pursy figure and pasty face of Mr Merrill I wonder now said Constantine what your forefathers were doing while mine were feasting kings and marrying Kings daughters in this island Mr Merritt started back and almost chokedConstantineglanccd toward two fishier lads who were standing a good wayoff with a big crab in a basket The gold coin was spun in the air and was caught by Andy Neil There boysI said Constantine Youll drink the health of the English gentlemanHe again saluted the ladies turned and with a low saunteringstep walked away Who is he exclaimed Mr Mer rittA lilllc man the parson of the nearest church stepped forward That is Malcolm Constantine he saidIIIts quite true he is the last of a- very old family But they were totally ruined in his great grandfat rers time and the young man hasnt a penny Impudant beggar said Mr Merritt fumingSupposing he had been a fisherman my dear said Merritt meekly I thought you would have made it 25 No one perceived at a window above their heads a handsome little listening face with brown hair falling round it Ruby had witnessed the whole scene heardevery word Four days later came Sunday Con stantine was sitting alone by his peat fire which the creeping chill in the air made necessary when there came a knock The old woman who looked after the house for him was out Constan tine went to tile door and there stood Ruby Merritt I didnt believe Id see you she said impetuously and Im going back to school tomorrow But theyve all driven over to church at Coleraine and here I am You saved my life I want to thank you- Constantine frowned I wish you wouldnt mention that Miss Ruby Yojire none the worse for it thats all that sig nifies he said VThat clergyman Mr Saubders was talking of you yesterday He said The young man has firstrate abilities but hedrather starve and mope his life away in this corner where the common people hold him in honor as a Constantine than try and make his way among a crowd Its a thousand pities I said Why dont you tell him so He answered Oh dear Miss Ruby its no affair of mine And I thought and thought all night In the morning I was decided It is an affair of mine Why Because I owe you my life and because I like you so much so muchyou dont know And when I hear thingswhen they say things it hurts me There now you are vexed No said Constantine No Miss Ruby Its only that when a man has livedalone some while its rather curious to have any one come and talk as if they cared Oh I care a lot Malcolm Constantine cried Ruby LookI Why dont you try business No matter how low you begin the tops always there Buying and selling Why not if its honest Ill tell you I love noble blood though I haVent half a 4rspM said outspoken Ruby iut- attecaUt dii yuraqOetrsl i anything j d ie t1 1 better than help make the world Thats what business is And now I must go or else I shall get into a simply awful scrape Will you think it over Yes I wittsaid Constantine And I however it iii God bless you Miss Ruby t Twelve years passed Malcolm Con stantine junior partner in the great Pittsburg Iron works came over to take a hardearned holiday buy land in An trim and see London A dowager Countess who had crossed in the same boat with him undertook to make his stay in town agreeable to the bachelor of thirtysix She had seven portionless daughters only one of whom was married On a fine May afternoon Constantine found himself seated between two of these youug ladies and their mother at a little tea table in a Bond street pastry cooks They had been seeing pictures Constantine felt reckless Something in the coloring of an obscure portrait he had seen hadbrought strongly to his mind the handsome spiritedredcheeked warmhearted school girl Ruby Merritt He half feared to see Ruby the woman she might spoil his treasured image of Ruby the girl The voice of the Countess speaking sharply startled him out of his re verie Really she was saying lIone doesnt expect such awkwardness in a place like this Constantine looked around One of the waitresses passing with a full teapot had been run against by another Some drops were spurted on the silk skirt of the Countess The young woman had stood still to make her apology Ruby Rubyl he exclaimed in a voice which made every creature turn around aud stare It was a little awkward for all parties at the moment and the everpractical Ruby informed him that he really should have waited to speak to her till she was off dutyVMy storys quite simple she said as he walked by her side A few years ago poor uncle took to speculating largely He lost everything My little fortune went too I did not think I was fit lo be a governess And I did not feel inclined to live on friends I was very lucky to get my present situationits an excellent one Dont look tragic please You know Im not noble Theres my bus Aunty and I have a nice little lodging out toward Hammersmith Come and see us Yes of course you can September again Malcolm and Ruby Constantine stood together on the turfy headland in front of the house at Sea view where they were spending their ttRuby pointed to a spot upon the shore Theres where you saved my life Constantine pointed further See that little House Theres where you created mine THEATRICALS Col Meffert and the Temple Theater company will offer as next weeks attrac tion A Parisian Romance the great play made famous by Richard Mansfield and an unusually creditable presentation may be looked for This play is one of the most popular on the stage today and should draw crowded houses during the entire week There is nowhere so strong a company playing at popular prices as at this play house and their work is of the highest order The costumes and stage setting will be up to the usual standard Those who did not see the presentation ofIIMadame Sans Gene were unfortunate and many were in hopes that it would be run for the second week Next week at the Avenue A Con tented Woman will return presented on a more elaborate scale than ever This piece will be remembered from last sea son as being a breezy farce comedy with witty lines tuneful music striking spe cialties and a cast fully up to the Hoyt standard This season the work will come with scenery and costumes new and they are said to be the most elaborate ever given it The specialties are greater in number and all of them new and up to date PARSIMONIOUS The action of the British Royal Commission in withdrawing the miserabie pittance allowed for an Irish display is capable of only one construction It means simply that the Prince of Wales Commission does not intend that Ireland shall have any real share or part in the exhibition at Paris Such a proceeding while quite in keeping with the policy of the English Government in wringing every penny of taxation out of this coun try is none the less reprehensible The Irish members should certainly make as strong a protest as possible in Parliament against this injustice It is but another illustration of the stupidity of British circumlocution which made the British commission at Chicago the laughing stock of nations On that occasion it will be remembered that the Irish exhibit apart from the very creditable Irish viI lage which Lady Aberdeen so ably man aged was practically lost in the rabmling British section It is the intention of the English Commission to still further exclude Ireland from Paris by preventing Irish exhibors going there at aU If so then the best thing the ViceRegal Commission could do would be to insist on a definite location of space in the area secured by the English Commission and then going ahead on their cwn account to fill it with a creditable display The very parsimony of the Prince of Wales Commission should be an incentive to Irish manufacturers and other exhibitors to show the world what they can dp without farthing being contributed out of the British Exchequer to which they themselves pay more thou their just Jro- pertfenIrjah lHb ptHleit i OJ JJ tLi TO TILE LAUREATE ANENT THE ENGUSII ALLIANCE The voice of a singer comes from the East In the monotone chant of a winter sea And the wild waves churning their salty east- Protract the refrain when the song hath ceased And we hark to the minstrelsy The words of the singer borne to the West Are the words of the siren of ancient tale I He would claim us as kindred he loveth best- Fledglings nourished and warmed in the selfsame nest Androcked by the selfsame gale A story of ancient wrong he
