It occurred in this way: When the Israelates were traveling through the desert on their way to the promised land they encountered to powerful and warlike tribe who spoke the Gaelic tongue (one of tlte languages supposed to have orignated at the tower of Babel), and who. like themselves. were traveling in search of a 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, and as they were encamped close to the Israelites, a poisonous snake bit him on the neck, leaving a ghastly wound that continued to increase as the poison 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 prayers healed the wound, which left in its place a green spot; hence he was called Gael glas (Green Gael), anglicized Gadelas. The King, having expressed his deep-fe- lt gratitude, Moses promised young Gael that nherever his posterity should settle the land would be free from all poisonous reptiles. This Prince was the great ancestor of the Milesian Irish, who were also called an Clan ua Gael, or Ga delians that is, the children of Gael glas or Gadelas. And so Moses' promise nas been luitiiled in Ireland It 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 Arabian snake about four thousand years ago.

GOY. i THE PRINCE BRADLEY REFUSES A PARDON It is a gpeat puzzle to many why it is hat there are no snakes in Ireland, though they exist in England across the channel, where the soil and climate are ahout the same. Indeed, of the two countries Ireland seems lo be the most naturally favorable to the existence of snakes, where the laud 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 are there no native snakes in Ireland, but foreign ones can not be naturalized there. No imported snake can live upon Irish soil twenty-fou- r 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 hardly 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 of a fence to "turn" snakes? The story is told of such a fence being made by an Irish convict, who became a 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 line ... w - .... ni t.tJV411V. . . , J barrier against the encroachment of 1 1 MISS WINNIE RIDGE, One of the Brightest Young Girls of the East End Passes Away.

The belief is common among the Irish that snakes once inhabited Ireland in great numbers, but were banished forever by St. Patrick. History, however, is not 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. But, perhaps, the chief of all the tales related about St. Patrick and the snakes is that of the meeting of our saint and the serLITTLE SOLDIERS, pent in the neighborhood of Lough Neagh: "Monster," said St. Patrick, addressing St. Patrick's Cadets Attend the serpent, "why tarry thou here, when Military Mass in Full the rest of thy tribe hath departed?"

The usual grand Easter Sunday vocal and instru mental musical programme was reudcied at the Church of the Good Shenherd nti Sunday last. High mass was celebrated at 10 o'clock by the Rev. T. S. Major, the pastor. The choir was augmented by celebrated singers from Louisville and Cincinnati. After mass the pastor delivered a short but very impressive sermon appropriate to the occasion. The church was beautifully and tastefully decorated and was crowded to the vestibules, many of whom were strangers spending the day in the city. Division 1, Ancient Order of Hibernians, gave the first of a series of delightful dances at their hall, Kleber building, South Side, last Monday night. Admission was by special invitation only, and a very select crowd was present and enjoyed themselves very much. The progressive "cinch" party given Wednesday night by Council 101, Young .Men's Institute, at their hall, was largely attended and proved a most enjoyable affair. Dancing was indulged i" from 10:110 to r:30, when all repaired homeward, happy in having spent a very pleasant evening. A call has been issued for a special meeting of Division 1, Ancient Order of Hibernians, at their hall Sunday evening, April 9, at 3 o'clock sharp. Every member is earnestly requested to be pres. cut, as business of importance will come up for consideration. The edilorof the Kentucky Irish American has been extended an invitation to visit Frankfort and I,eximnti n.l wilt arrive some lime tins month. Circuit Judge Cantrill delivered one of the most sensational charges ever given a grand jury here in opening court. His remarks were directed against the forma-lio- n of trusts and advising the grand jury to strictly enforce the anti-trustatutes. Judge Cantrill said it was the duty of the jury to investigate, and if any representative of a trust had to do business or thwart justice it was their duty to file indictments and bring the offenders to justice. It is believed that indictments will be filed against distillers for entering the whisky combine. Judge Cantrill said in instructing the jury: The que lion of trusts is a judicial one more th.u'i'(:itical one. Thepeo-pi- e arc accujljiucd to look to the Legislatures and Congress to remedy the evil, but the common law affords ample protection if the courts would take such action as they have the right to take. Of course the jurist must clearly draw the distinction between the legitimate corporations and trusts. The people have the right to ask for protection against any attempt to crush competition, nnd it is your duty to indict any corporation that you deem guilty of violating the anti-trustatute or the common st st Fire Commissioner Scannell, of New York, has appointed the tRev. William Smith and the Rev. James Le Baron Johnson chaplains of the department with the rank of Battalion Chief. Mr, Johnson is an assistant to the Rev. ' Dr, Huntington, of Grace church. Father Smith is a member of the Order of Fathers of Mercy. The Fite Department never before had chaplains.

They will wear a uniform according to their rank, and will have a fire alarm in their residences, so that they may promptly go to big fires. Father Smith received his appointment through and with the approval of Arch With reference to his bishop Corngan. new work he said: "Mr. Johnson and I are good friends, and we are enthusiastic about our work with the firemen. Our duties are to be similar to those of armyj chaplains, nnd wherever we are needed we will go with a will.

All firemen were his friends in that town, and much of the time he lived with them in the engine houses. When he came to this city, six years ago, he brought with him from the Tacoma firemen letters to Chief Bonner and other members of the local department. He has been at many of the biff fires here, has officiated at the funerals of several firemen and is an admirer of Chief Bonner and his men. Two years ago he contributed sufficient money to provide annually the Bonner gold medal for bravery in life saving at fires. FULLY ATTESTED BY THE RECORDS. years ago on March 23 was fought the celebrated battle of Winchester, Va. The Federal armv. un- der the distinguished Trish-- morion ii General, James Shields, whose statue adorns the National Galleiy in Wash-ingtoa gift of the people of Missouri to the National Government, completely routed the Confederate forces under the great "Stonewall" Jackson, who suffered a loss of two guns, four caissons, 300 prisoners and 1,000 stands of small arms. There has been a disposition to detract from Gen. Shields in "histories" by y ignoring the battle of Winchester. One "history," which does not mention Shields' victory at Winchester, makes known the fact that "Shields was defeated by Jackson about May, 1802." Now. unless it can be shown that Shields, at the time of his "defeat," dominated all the Union forces on the field, as Jackson dominated all the Confederate forces on the same field, if. on this occasion, he was a subordinate and not the real commander, if it was his business not to plan but to obey the orders of another, common honesty would suggest that respon-sibilit- y for the result should be placed on the shoulders of the man who was in supreme command, that is Gen. Banks. In that campaign under Banks the Union army was so divided and the di- visions were so detached and so scattered over the valley as to make concerted action impossible. Jackson's keen eye saw the blunder and promptly turned it to his advantage. Placing himself between the converging columns of Banks, Shields, Milroy and Fremont, he struck one after another, and with lu's united Thirty-seve- n 1802, A com-pletel- terday afternoon Ashby's cavalry drove in the Union pickets. Shields brought up his forces and fired rounds of shell, drove them back and took several prisoners. The Nationals slept on their arms at night. This morning at sunrise Jackson, being reinforced, attacked Shields near Keamstown. The enemy retired slowly. The Nationals rushed forward, and troops followed and drove them till dark. Jackson's men were completely demoralized and could not be rallied. Jackson's forces were pursued beyond Newton." (Vol. IV., pp. The "Pictorial History of the Civil War" thus gives this account of the engagement: "Shields, badly injured as'he was, was yet able to attend to his duty, and although unable to be present on the field was actually conducting the battle from his bed. Having been informed by Kimball of the desperate charge of the Confederates, Shields gave orders that all disposable infantry should be thrown forward on the right and that thus massed they should fall on Jackson's batteries, then turn his left flank and hurl it back on his center. This plan was put into operation, the united force rushed upon the enemy and Jackson's men were driven back through the woods. 'Night alone' said the gallant Shields, 'saved them from total destruc-tion.- " (Pp. 2i:i-T- )j Col.

OPENS MONDAY, Bazaar for the Dominican Church Contest Exciting Great Interest. The St. Louis Bertrand church bazaar. which was postponed from April 3, will open next Monday at the school hall, Sixth street, between St. Catherine and Oak. As tlie opening draws near several of the contests for prizes have become close and interesting, one in particular being the race for the $300 piano offered the person selling the most tickets to the bazaar. This race has narrowed down to two contestants Miss Nellie Finnegan and Miss Susie Becker each having a host of friends, who are striving good naturedly to land their favorite a winner. Another interesting feature, which is an innovation in the bazaar line in this city," is the handsome little pony and cart, which was presented to Rev. Father Logan, to be raffled off at the bazaar. It seems that every man, woman, boy and girl in the Limerick district have set their hearts on winuing this prize, and whoever the winner he or she is certainly to be envied. If present indications and advance notices count for anything the bazaar will open in a blaze of glory and continue a brilliant success as long as it lasts, and also pose ns a striking example of what the hustling efforts of the members of St. Louis Bertrand'scan do in this line. The reception nnd dance of the Irish American Society at Hibernian Hall Thursday evening was one of the most enjoyable of the many pleasant social events of the past season aniom? the different societies of this city. The audience was a large one, composed of the best class of our citizens. and had the weather been fair the two halls would not have accommodated the friends of this popular society. President Thomas Keenan presided as Chairman and toastmaster, and in a happy and filicitoits manner introduced the different ladies and gentlemen who were to assist in carrying out the excellently arranged programme. He also gave a brief history of the n Society and its aims and purposes, refut ing the silly statements heretofore made by local papers. The address of tlie evening was delivered by Hon. Matt O'Doherty, and it was pronounced one of the most eloquent ever heard in that hall. His remarks were patriotic and created unbounded enthusiasm. He gave a synopsis of what the Irish people had done in behalf of civilization, paying a glowing tribute lo many who became famous iu their endeavors to serve the United States from the Revolution to the present time. He was warmly applauded. Patrick O'Connor rendered several selections oit the accordion, nnd his playing of old but favorite Irish airs was one of the most pleasing features of ihe even-Irish-AmericIrish-America- ing. fofcastrsGk4)ac-4$c-isolatcd4ragnii- t: BEAUTIFUL law."

Shields ordered a portion of his artillery forward to open ure ana unmasK it. This 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 nd placed the enemy to be routed by a general attack, which was made at 5 o'clock in the afternoon with a great success. The Confederates were driven from the field, with the loss of two guns, four caissons, 300 prisoners, and 1,000 stands of small arms. The force of Shields was between 7.000 and 8,000, of which he lost in killed and wounded between 300 and 400. The Confederate loss was large. The brigades oi Gens.

A Committee of Stonecutters Confer With the Board of Public Works. A committee from the Stonecutters Union had a conference Wednesday with the Board of Public Works in refereuce to the employment of union labor on street construction work. This was the second conference held, and Mayor Weaver attended each of them. He is understood to favor the demands. The Board of Works assured the committee that wherever the law permitted it the city would employ union labor and home material on all public work. Where it is not possible to put this proviso in the contract the Board of Works will use its best efforts to have contractors employ union men. The workingmen can not understand why in future the proviso for union labor can not be carried out. Nonunion labor has proven tlie most expensive in the past, because of lack of experence and skill, and compliance with the request of the trades unions will only result in the reduction of taxation. MAN MAY BEAT HIS WIFE. James B. Kelly convulsed the audience with his recitation and was recalled several times, as was also Mr. Otto Wiseman, whose cornet solos were of a very ' high class order. . Misses Carrie Scally and Mary Kelly were the vocal soloists of the evening, and won new laurels. They possess sweet voices, and a brilliant future is predicted for them.

Regret this as we may, we are not in the 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 standing warning notice that everyone investing money in the State is to be held up, robbed and treated as a common outlaw, capital will continue to leave here and be invested in the development of the manufac- ' turing, commercial and general Qf Qther Qtates The American people( capitalists includ ed( f1o not rdish being plundered.

A new division is being formed in Jef Christian Scientists declare that by the exercise of will power we may cure ourselves of any 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 hyperemia with sensations of tingling. It is not difficult to understand that directing the mind toward some particular part of the organism may alter the blood supply of that part, and so modify materially its nutrition. If this be possible it is not at all unlikely, according to the Loudon Lancet, that morbid changes may result from, or be predis posed to, by these slight beginnings. In a clinical lecture recently delivered in St. George's Hospital, two cases were quoted wherein increased growth of a tumoi 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 particular attention to the disease of some one organ or legion ofthe body ultimately suffers from an affection of the same part. It is said that the game of dominoes was invented by two monks who had been committed to a lengthy seclusion and who tried to beguile the lonely hours away without breaking the rule of silence 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 perfect 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 an innocent and amusing pastime. It soon spread from town to town and became popular throughout Italy. The first line of the vespers was reduced to the single word, Homino, 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 thousand years ago, but it is as Applicable now in China as it was then. Ifew people in the world have more reason for coining such a sentence than have the Chinese, as their present Kmpress Dowager is universally detested and her existence is Eastern papers occasionally deplored. give us insight into the wanton cruelty of this female Herod. l?ew countries have more reason for dreading woman rule than China. The iron hand of a Catherine and the cruel, heartless injustice of an Elizabeth and the wantonness of a Cleopatra were mild and insignificant, at least from our point of view, when compared 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 countries 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 more civilized generation than they, and because 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, Lut to that of the Emperor whose govern, ment she has usurped. Again it is remarkable because not one of the minis ters of these governments has offered to withdraw or sutreested tue impropriety of his remaining minister at the court of a usurper. Again, she represents the conservative uartv which is hostile to all the interests of their own and nil these other governments, and yet no one dare say nay to any of her projects or liieas.

Hayden dis tillery in Bullitt County by the Greenbrier Distillery Company has been announced officially. James L. Hackctt is President of the Greenbrier Company and G. McGowan is Secretary and Treas urer. The Hayden Distillery was owned by A. B. Baldwin, of Bardstowu. The consideration amounted to over $100,000. With the distillery went about 3,000 barrels of whisky. The Hayden plant has a capacity of 200 bushels a day, and is one of the most valuable distilling properties in the State, the old Grandad brand being widely known. Mr. Hackett, President of the company, said Wednesday: "Our firm is not fighting in the Kentucky whisky combine. We are going to make plenty of fine whisky, though, in order to supply our trade, which has increased wonderfully within the past few months. We sell to the jobbers and have no intention of selling directly to consumers, as'was stated in a local paper some time ago. That was ridiculous, and something we had never even contemplated. Mr. Hackett says he is now negotiating with several foreign firms for a part of distilthe output of the lery for several years to come. The late William Collins was also asso ciated with the Greenbrier Company, and under their joint management its output attained a reputation all over the United States, which has been zealously maintained.
