Condemned by the Archbishop of Glasgow Scotland I Thel Sacraments Arc Denied to Members of This Organization American Hibernians Interested In Behalf of Scotch z Brethren SOME VIEWS ON THE QUESTION Hibernians in this vicinity find it difficult j to understand the action of Archbishop Eyre of Glascow Scotland who has forbidden the members of the Ancient Older of Hiberniansto approach the sac raments In this country as is well known the order is looked upon as aIvaluable adjunct of the church and cler gymen are among its most enthusiastic members says a writer in the Syracuse Catholic Sun and the same is true here- inLouisvilleThe in Scotland is of long standing In connection with the ban a letter was addressed to Bishop McFaul of Trenton when he was presiding over the last national convention in his Epis copal city The Glasgow brethren pe titioned Bishop McFaul to endeavor to have the ban removed The convention unanimously resolved to entrust the mat ter to the incoming national directory and afterward the National President and National Chaplain were invested with full power to act in the premises Whatever action they took however seems to have been of no avail for the ban continues in forcePresident John B OHlggins of Military Division 43 Boston who has fol lowed the case since the controversy first arose thus explains the situation I can well understand the action of Arch bishop Eyre and Bishop Maguire of Glasgow In their overzealous desire to prevent the spread of Irish Nationalist societies they strike at the Ancient Order of Hibernians and thereby miss the mark These right reverend gentlemen shoul- dbeawarobytbistiwethaLtheAnden tOrder of Hibernians is not a revolution ary society being purely beneficient and fraternal In fact I can say without fear of contradiction that they have over stretched the powers given to the Bishops and priests over twenty years ago by making the ban issued at that time from Rome over the present case During my visit to Glasgow in 1800 I interviewed Bishop Meguiron behalf of the Glasgow brethren and informed hums that they were in affiliation with the order on this side and that both the members in Glasgow as well as those on this side courted the closest investigation I referred him to Right Rev John- S Foley D D of Detroit as an authority or Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia I found the reverend Bishop how ever very hard to convince on the sub ject and to my mind not overanxious to trouble or burden himself with the matter I advised the Glasgow brethren to forward a petition to Rome asking for an inquiry into the matter I believe this has been done but am not positive on that head I do know however that Bishop McFaul stated he knew of no reason why the members of the order in Glasgow should be placed under a ban It is done I believe on the strength of an original edict issued from Rome many years ago but for what purpose I can not say I have taken a lively interest in this matter and attended the late national convention at Trenton on behalf of and at the request of the Glasgow brethren I attended the meetings of the committee on foreign relations and submitted the facts to them with the result that the National President and National Chaplain were instructed to take the matter in charge III speaking of this matter the Boston Republic says Quite naturally the members of time Ancient Order of Hibernians in this country are exercised over the continua tion of the ecclesiastical ban put upon their brethren in Glasgow by Archbishop Eyre Here the order enjoys the fullest liberty It is recognized as a benevolent society pure and simple and not at all as a secret organization deserving Censure or restriction Bishop McFaul of New Jersey is one of the conspicuous mem bers of the American section of the order Bishop Foley of Detroit is also a mem ber and several Archbishops have marked the society with their favor Consequently the leading men in the Ancient Order of Hibernians are unable to understand why the Archbishop o Glasgow should refuse the sacrament to the members of the order who live within his jurisdiction and thus practically ex communicate theme The reason is not far to seek Probe the matter deeply enough and there is sure to be found a bit of British secretI intrigue in it England has never when she wished to suppress organize- opposition to her rule of brutality in Ire land In some way or other she h I always managed to invoke the aid o Rome and to secure it against the Irish people But she is making a tnlstake tto enlist the church on her side when she strikes ata great fraternal and benevo lent order like the Anciehl Order of Hi bernians We are glad that the directory of the American order Sre interesting themselves on behalf or their Scotch brethren ft niCMAEL DOER OEFER Mike Doerhoefer gene al manager of the American Tobacco larks at Eight eenth and Broadway is Announced as a candidate for Alderman1 in the Demo cratic primary ftlr

constituency Dr Gil bert is recognized as one of our leading physicians and has always been deeply interested in adopting plans to improve the sanitary condition of the city He has recently returned from several Eastern cities where he went to make observations in regard to different methods for destroying garbage and city sanitation generally and he says Louis ville will adopt some economical means of destroying garbage rather than dump it on the commons where it endangers the health of the people Dr Gilbert also suggests for the city to establish three free bath houses for the benefit of poor people and also to purchase Central Park as a pure air breathing locality for the children of the poorer classes during hot weather He thinks by this means hundreds of poor sick children can be re lieved of suffering without medical treat ment There is no pay attached to the office and to successfully carry out these plans is Dr Gilberts chief desire for re election to the Board of Aldermen

Isabellas Tribute to the Distinguished Statesman and Soldier DESCENDED FROM A NOBLE FAMILY As the writer entered the harbor of Havana like all other persons who visit that historic city he was impressedwith the tremendous strength of Morro On the famous tower that contains the light house is carved in large letters the name ODonntll concerning whom a few words might prove interesting to the many readers of the Kentucky Irish AmericanThe were one of those noble Irish families who emigrated from Ireland with the OReillys OFarrells and others to Spain during the Jacobite wars in England and Ireland The pies ent Duke of Tctuan late member of the Spanish Cabinet is the son of the ODon nell whose name is carved on Morros tower Senor Leopoldo ODonnell was born in Teneriffe one of the Canary Islands in January 1809 and was the descendent of the ODonnells who pos sessed a large patrimony in Tremoniel Tyrconnell Ireland In one of those clannish quarrels which were so frequent in those days the ODonnells were over powered by the powerful family of the ONeills One of the ODonnells ances tor of Leopoldo ODonnell won by his valor from James I the title of Baron of Donegal and Tremoniel When the Stuarts were driven into exile the ODon nells followed the proscribed dynasty Part of time family settled in Austria the rest going to Spain These countries were dominated by a Catholic and monarchical spirit in harmony with the religious and political beliefs of those noble emigrants The QDonnells keptup their reputa son for very flufeM11dbfthCitfdop tion At the expense of their blood they became naturalized in Spain Leopoldo ODonnells father was Lieutenant Gen eral and his grandfather Lietenant Colonel of a regiment formed of those emi grants front Ireland Son of a family of soldiers and raised during a time when Spain was endeavor ing to throw off the yoke of the Bona partes young ODonnell naturally took to the army Let us pass rapidly over his infancy By a special royal decree he was made a subLieutenant at time age of eleven and was made a full Lieuten ant in 1827 When Don Pedro Sarsfield formed an army of observation on the frontier of Portugal in 1829 ODonnell commanded one of the regiments Shortly afterward he went to Cataluna where he had an audience with the King who gave him a command in time army sent to suppress the Carlists An old Spanish writer in speaking of ODonnill at this time said that he was tall and fair and plainly showed his Northern extraction The turning point in ODonnells career was the death of the reigning monarch which occurred in 1833 All Spain divided into two hostile camps On the one side was the Infante Don Carlos with all the old traditions of absolute monarchy while on the other stood time Infanta Isabella representing the Liberal party Everything seemed to point to Carlist success but ODonnell did not hesitate a moment Although the traditions of life family the example of his brothers and the pleadings of Isis mother whom he adored all tended to drive him into the camp of the Carlists ODonnell decided for Isabella and the Liberal party He remained faithful to the Queen in all the years of his life from the time he first espoused her cause from 1833 till his death in 1807 Always faith ful to his ideas of loyalty and patriotism today he was triumphant tomorrow an exile but whether soldier General Min ister or member of Parliament he re mained incorruptible- He was sent to Cuba in 1843 where he remained for five years It is said that in Cuba and in fact in all the Spanish colonies the office of Captain General planY dered the colonists SpainI with the fortune of a prince This wasI said particularly about Gen Weyler who is charged with returning to SpainI the possessor of a fortune of 5000000 Whatever truth may be hi these allegations it is certain that ODonnell re turned to the Peninsula poorer than he came He was the first Captain GeneralI that visited the whole island He remod eled the army which had little or no dis cipline He strengthened all the fortifi cations around Havana especially Ell Morro which still bears his name on itst famous tower He also suppressed a for midable insurrection of the slaves Englishet II firms had been repairing all the shipsII that entered Havana harbor He changedI this and had the work done by Cuban and Spanish workmen For this he was I espeI J y turned to Spain he was loaded with dignities by tIe Government During all the Carlist and other revolutions that disturbed Spain he remained faithful to Isa bella He died November 5 1857 mourned by the entire Spanish people Queen Isabella wrote In the death of Leopoldo ODonnell Duke of Tetuan Spain has lost one of its most distinguished statesmen and Gen erals whose name and whose deeds will be recorded by the historian The Irish race the world over may well be proud of the achievements and mem ory of ODonnell JOSKPH S CUNNINGHAM a MIKE FORD WILL WIN Mr M J Ford whose announcement appears elsewhere in these columns is a candidate for Alderman from the city at large Mr Ford is well known to the citizens of Louisville having been en gaged in the plastering business for more than twenty years from which he re tired in 1894 to engage in the real estate business and is now located at 315 Fifth street It was with great reluctance that Mr Ford gave up his old trade which was due to dull times and the decline in prices Our architects and builders speak of him hi the highest terms both as a gentleman and a mechanic He also has the esteem and good will of the journeymen plasterers of the city because he did firstclass work and paid the men good wages Many of the principal public buildings and private residences espe cially the finer ones in the southern por tion of the city attest his workmanship Mr Ford is a thorough business man and is in every way qualified to fill the posi tion of Alderman I a CATHOLIC KNIGHTS Their Grand Concert Will Take Place At Macauleys Monday Evening

accommodation of visitors The occasion promises to be a notable one The new Abbot Right Rev M Obrecht is a man of affairs traveled and learned and the Abbey is taking on new life since his appointment Before enter ing the order it is said he was a Captain of artillery in the French army serving during the FrancoPrussian war The Trappists are a branch of the Ben edictines They take their name front the monastery of La Trappe in France In the Abbey of Gethsemani there are eightyseven members eighteen priests fourteen choir religious not priests and fiftyfive lay brothers and family brothers An average of twenty boarders are at the Abbey the year round They observe silence under the rule of St Benedict who wrote Let us do what the Prophet saith II will take heed of my ways that I sin not with my tongue I have set a guard to my mouth etc Andagain In a multitude of words there shall not want sin Death and life are in the power ot the tongue The mottoof the nlerisOra et labora Pray ami work Therefore the life of the Trappist does not consist in continually reciting prayers or medita tions but also in manual labor Seven or eight hours are daily given to prayer and five or six devoted to manual labor As idleness is the enemy of the soul the brethren according to the rules of the order must be employed alternately in manual labor or pious reading The Trappists may speak only to the first superior and to the spiritual director con cerning spiritual matters or when neces sary to ones brethren but in the pres ence of the superiors They rise for prayer about 2 oclock and offer these prayers not only for themselves but for the outside world They eat no meat and live on the vegetables raised by their own hands on the lands surrounding the monastery which are tilled with great care In the order are many distinguished men who have given up the world pre ferring a life of seclusion I CHATTERSON FOR SCHOOL TRUSTEE In another column will be found the card of Mr J M Chatterson the

subscribe to it Mail an occasional copy to friends It will cost you but little trouble after all and will bring to them much pleasure Between friends this is not much to ask UNITED IRELAND FIRST In the recent elections in Ireland while nationalism was overwhelm ingly victorious partisanism was ignored and strictly party candi dates generally defeated There is a lesson in this for party leaders in Ireland and it seems to be bearing fruit The war of words between the leaders are not so lengthy nor bitter and between the lines it can be seen that there is a desire to ac quiesce in the manifest wish of the people for a cessation of strife ig noring of special reforms sectional and personal preferences and a de mand for a union of leaders and parties of efforts and strength for the promotion of the cause of Ire land as a whole The leaders of the parties all recognize and understand the voice of the Irish people as ex pressed in the elections and though they discuss plans and intimate that their rivals are to blame for lack of unity in the past and stand in the way of it now one dare even sug gest anything to the contrary As to who shall take the initia tive or on what basis or under which leader union is to be accomplished there may be difference but that all parties must agree to some sort of unity or be abandoned by the Irish people is beyond all question and if the party leaders can not agree upon a basis of unity there is a fair prospect of existing leaders and parties being ignored and the formation of a new national party representing the new issues which the changed conditions present un der leaders choseu by the people absorbing the present parties bury ing their contentions profiting by their blunders and assigning their leaders to labor for Ireland in a gen eral and united party of the people That something like this is expected is indicated by the caution of the leaders and papers of all the Irish parties in discussing the propositions for unity the absence of denunciation of rivals and more than anything else by the advent of conservative men not politicians or desirous of leadership or office into the controversy Their sug gestions are attracting attention and outside of the partisans have most weight with the people The party leaders are seeking with as little evident backdown as possible to arrange some way for unity without sacrificing their par ties or leadership but fully recog nize that there must be fruity on some basis The people want it and may tire of the dallying of party leaders take the matter into their own hands and form a party and then the party leaders opportunity will be gone The leader and party which brings about the union of the Irish people on a basis of national interest embracing Irelands ulti mate autonomy and home rule is the leader and party of Ireland for the future and all others must co operate or give way to it We publish the cards of many candidates for the suffrage of the people Without being in any sense partisan we commend them to the Consideration of our readers as fully worthy to discharge the duties of the offices to which they aspire n i4l WHO ARE THE PEOPLE The dear people 0 how we theIper But who are people these days of partisanism demagogy and campaigns that is more difficult to decide than may at first seem It depends what paper you read or political speaker you hear which political party is representing striving and suffering for the best interests of the people None of them care for the offices the patron age the jobs the honors the money far from it they only desire to relieve the burdens better the con dition further the interests and benefit the people Democrat Republican Populist Prohibition all parties yea every candidate sings the same tune to the same note But yet who are the people that is who are really meant by the speakers and newspaper writers when they advocate the rights of the people the redress of grievances to the people Try to investigate Learn if you can who are enjoy ing the benefits the spoils the glory of the present control of the offices who is doing and receiving pay for public works who is holding the deputyships and odds and ends Then hear the candidate for re election his friends and copartners his organs and you learn that the interests of the people have been faithfully looked after protected and promoted and to displace them would be detrimental to everything dear to the people But hear an opposing candidate his friends who expect to be depu ties to get a slice of public work his newspaper organs who affect to take care of the public printing or some other little things and how the rascally incompetent and care less incumbents have neglected their duties mismanaged the business and stolen the money of the people That the public interests the pub lie safety the very existence of the Governmentthe country in fact demands a change the ousting of the present regime the election of the candidates the party of the peopleBut there are generally more than two parties or sets of candidates and each sings the same song of selfpraise as champions and sole representatives of the people and refers to all the others in vitupera tion and ridicule as the enemies of the people to be suspected ostra cised ousted Then who in politics are the people That depends on which party you vote with which candi date you prefer which newspaper you accept as your gospel truth and beacon light The people Where are they in politics anyhow Who really represents them is author ized to speak for them We the people The three tailors of Tooley street are long since dead but not forgottenfor at least in their case do their deeds live after them VoxPopuli III Councilman Cronin is up against it The Times

dresses a Meeting of the IndepcndcntLcng Urges All Irishmen to Be Prepared For the Next Gen eral Election The Parnellltcs Will Join in Any heal Effort to Bring About Unity THE WORK OF COUNTY COUNCILS Mr John P Hayden M P presided at the fortnightly meeting of the Head Branch of the Irish Independent League which was held in Dublin this month An extremely large and representative audience listened to a practical and convincing speech by the Chairman Hav ing spoken at the outset on the gratifying results tif the County Council elections he urged the necessity of registration especially for the recapturing of Stephens Green seat Referring to Sir Charles Gavan Duffys remarkable letter to the Independent he showed how the eminent Irishman had justified the Paruellites in their policy of tolera tion and had borne out their arguments on the unity question An instructive debate on registration was next contri buted by Nationalists from different wards of the city An admirable sugges tion was made by one of these speakers that workmen should start registration associations in their trades union rooms This was recommended by the Chairman for consideration The Chairman who was cordially re ceived said since the last time they had met tile country had gone through a trial as to whether it was fit or not to govern itself He testified that the manner in which elections had been carried out throughout Ireland and the conduct dis played by the new councils assembled within the past week or so had shown that the Irish people were as capable of managing their own affairs as the people of any country in the world The effect of the elections was to show especially to their own countrymen who differed from them on the national question that they had nothing to fear from an inde pendent selfgoverning Ireland The men who had been elected and the man ner in which they had acted when they came together on the new councils had given a certain amount of satisfaction even to the minority in Ireland The Chairman spoke from his own experiences of several who differed from them on thenational question and who had expressed to him surprise and satisfaction at the class of men elected who while representing the predominant national feeling of the country had shown a fitness for administrative affairs which compared favorably with those who ad minister them under the old system He pointed out that now having elected the councils their next duty was to attend to the register particularly having regard to the seriousness with which the suggestion of a member of the English Govern ment of an approaching general election had been treated by the press and public men That showed that possibly the gen eralelection might come much sooner than they anticipated He emphasized the fact that the constituency in Dublin would require their closest attention Perhaps others might claim their attention but hlo one in particular would Stephens Green which was admittedly a National- Ist constituency but was at present iu the hands of those who were opposed to granting their national claims They were now entering on registration and the requisition forms were being sent out by their officials He assured them that although the filing of requisitions should not require any information yet the officials of the League were always ut the disposall of the people in connection with their claims He asked the Nationalists IGarment LEVY BROS THIRD flNNUflL EXCURSION TO BE GIVEN BY COlIPANY Av III1313JR3VIAlv ItJVTGHIJS Sunday May 28 1899 ON THE ELEGANT STEAMER COLUMBIA TO Madison

indorse ment of the Chicago platform and the renomination of William J Bryan in 1900 in return to help the League in that work so that if a general election came soon which was not unlikely they would be able to make Dublin solid for the National cause The Chairman next referred to what he described as the remarkable let ter which Jiad appeared in the Independent I I from that able and distinguished Irishman Sir Charles Gavan Duffy i which should claim the particular notice ofeverybody interested in the progress of the Irish cause That letter coming J I from such a distinguished man who was 1 not mixed up with any party controversies I in Irelandwho looking on from a distance perhaps was able to see with a clearer vision than those nearer home supplied a splendid vindication of the position the Independent party took up with regard to the recent elections The Paruellites went in for no policy of vindictiveness vengeance againstthose who were losing their power in the coun try They did not go in for wresting every position from those who differed from them but they had insisted that in every possible place the Nationalists should secure large overwhelming ma jorities in the various counties so that expression could always be given to the sentiments of the people on national and other public questions That policy had been to a great extent carried out in the couucils which were mixed in classes and creeds with the greatest advantage to the people The principal object which actuated the Parnellltea in taking that position was to advance the national cause The Chairman argued that the main obstacle to home rule vas not in the position of the English people but rather because a fairly large minority oft tO t j Irishmen was opposed to itand then showed that the position successfully as sumed by the Parnellites teaches those people that under home rule they would have very little to fear from the majority of the Irish people That was the view taken by a man of the varied experience ectaredIpolicytheIone policy calculated to adance home satisfiedpression made by their attitude toward the minority of their countrymen Pass questionI ites of Ireland sincerely desired uritty and because they desired it they had held negotiationsbecausethey unityIfthey would have entered into it wholeheartedly To put the matter to a test they offered a certain conference to those who were trading on unity to see what exactly they wanted Sir Charles Gavan Duffy put the matter in a nutshell when negotiateites all along As Sir Charles said even a crowd of diplomatists could not negoti ate Many of the Irish members of various sections were far from being diplomatists and whatever diplomacy some departfromthe Paruellites in holding aloof from the unity proceeding and at the same time ressedaflproVlll of unity if it could be brought about properly on the lines of Parnell In conclusion he said as soon as the Parnellites saw there was any real

They would like to play the Hibernian Knights Division 4 and Mackin Council in order named Address challenges to Jack Yenner 11 DUBLIN TRADES UNION LOYALTY The solidarity which exists among trades unionists was well illustrated by an incident which occurred in Dublin the other day The affair was in connection with the strike of carpenters in Edin burgh It appears that two agents from the employers in that city came to Dublin for the purpose of engaging carpenters there to replace the men who have knocked off work The emissaries secured the services of twentyfive Dubulin memo passagesforBut just as the contingent were about to embark they were met by representatives of their own organization here The twentyfivebeen apparently in ignorance that any question of principle was involved with drew immediately from their engagement and returned their tickets to the dis comfited agents protesting that they had been misled as to the circumstances of the case Thereupon the canny Scotch men took their departure for the Land of Cakes amid the groaning of the Dublin tradesmen whom they had come within an ace of placing in a false position The loyalty of the Dublin carpenters who threw personal considerations to one side in view of a matter affecting their fellow workers even though the latter belonged to another country is very creditable to them and demonstrates the strength of trades union principles S HINTS TO ENGAGED GIRLS Dont put on little airs and affectations when your lover is present but be your youhewhich to outsiders are so charming yourtimand household duties you will have time enough to think of no one but him and his comfort when you nre marriedIDont be dissatisfied if he does not give you as handsome presents as your friends lover gives her you may be sure he will spend all he can afford on gifts for you and he is very wise not to go beyond his incomeDont when he is away from you allow malicious whisperings of his doings to cause you uneasiness There are many people in the world delighted to come between happy lovers and too much heed sayingsDont nor yet constitute yourself mistress of his actions A man however deeply in love likes to feel himself the master and girls respect hint for being so Dont forget to interest yourself In the things which interest him A lack of mutual tastes may prove a serious obstacle to your happiness and you

CRADLE SONG To aud fro to and fro With her mother singing low Lies my baby wide awake Heeding not the soothing shake Nor the swinging to and fro Nor her mothersinging low To and fro to and fro Steadily the rockers go Oer some crevice in the floor As they did in days of yore When my mothersinging low Rocked her baby to and fro To and fro to and froHear that midget coo and crow See her twist and turn andspy Just a twinkle in her eye Then she laughs aloud you know At her mother singing low To and fro to and fro Bread to bake arid seams to sew Beds to make and sweep and dust Baby go to sleep you must You musnt tick your legs up so Ma must rock yousIng by lo To and fro to and fro 0 my darling could you know All the weariness and care You have made your mother there All your mirth would change to woe When you heard her sighing so I To and fro to and fro Patiently the rockers go Till at last the eyelids close Carried safely to repose By the tender undertow Of that song so sweet and low 0 my pet my precious one When her toil for you is done When alone you seek for rest Brokenhearted and oppressed You will miss the voice I know Of your mother singing low To and fro to and fro You to motherhood may grow But Ill never forget your glee As you kicked and laughed at me While your mothersinging low Rocked and rocked you to and fro Charles D Tryon SPORTY ITEMS Phillip is a comer

meets tomorrow afternoonSeveral of the fivecent barber shops were unionized this week A mans sincerity in unionism Is more often demonstrated by what he does than by what he says The Federal Labor Union will meet Monday night at Becks Hall There should by a full attendance Thomas Mangan of the Stereotypers Union will be here next week While Organizer The Brotherhood Painters and Decorators of America will hold an open meeting Tuesday night A cordial invi tation is extended those not affiliated to attend The Organizing Committee of the Bar bers Union has been doing good work recently They request trades unions to patronize only those who display the union sign The printers are pleased with the result of their late election Some able men went down in defeat only because there were not offices enough to go around Now they will unite in turning their attention to nonunion offices Delegates to the Central Labor Union will be chosen by the Press Feeders Union at the meeting to be held Thurs day evening This is one of the most promising of the new unions and before long every feeder in the city will be a card man Those dealers who handle cheap scab made cigars have been taught a good lesson recently They ought to have known that there was something crooked with the Pennsylvania cigars Business men who will not patronize home industries are not worthy of home trade and workingmen should see to it that what they buy is union made The moldcrs of Atlanta are jubilant over their victory For time past eighteen months they have been idle but this week the employers sent word to Inter national President Fox that they would unionize their establishments throughout and grant an advance of fifteen per cent in wages Mr Fox sent a representative to that city and time union men have all returned to work This is a significant victory MARTYRS MOMUMENT Kilrush Nationalists held a splendid meeting recently to push forward the erection of the martyrs monument in their town Mr Luke OBrien was in the chair and he was supported by all the leading local Nationalists The repre seuative attendance was most encourag ing evidencing the fact that the slight differences arising from the recent con tested elections had been forgotten The meeting on Sunday night was a practical one The County Council will be at once approached for a site and it is expected that permission for this will be given A strong committee will take in hands the completion of the collections which thanks to the Clare exiles already amount to a substantial sum Every Nationalist in Clare who reveres its mem oryof the martyrs and he would be a sorry one who would not will be ap proached to help on the good work and please God ere summer is far advanced a monument will stand in the Square of Kilrush a living tribute from Clare men to the memory of three of the noblest spirits and the bravest Irishmen that Ire land could call her own IRISH STRAWBERRIES Daniel OBrien of 293 Main street Bridgeport Conn was the recipient of a basket of luscious strawberries which were grown in his mothers garden at Cork Ireland The basket containing the berries was inclosed in a large box which had at the bottom a drawer which held a small cake of ice They were fresh and sweet in spite of their long shipment across the ocean The express charges on the berries amounted 308 but Mr OBrien says that fresh berries from his mothers garden arc cheap at any price BRIGHT EYES Everyone is anxious to have bright eyes and keep their eyesight unimpaired No lotions are so effective as plenty of cold fresh rain water to which a little rose water may be added after a long dry dustIused much by lamplight to put a white sheet of paper or a white cloth on the table Gas is the great enemy to bright eyes and lamps or candlelight should be used whenever possible It is quite sad to see so many school girls and school boys wear ing spectacles The eyesight is impaired much earlier nowadays than formerly ow ing to the high pressure at which every one lives Late hours and hard work tell their tale Those blessed with good sight should treat it with every care and consideration BRIEF TIPS Never let a child sob itself
