event of much importance The in a cer tain sense was international for the ex ercises were in by a delega Non from France In this way it became of highest importance from a national point of view and it gains added significance from the recent discussion in Paris and throughout Prance of the feasibility of that country invading and conquering England Gen Humbert did invade Ireland as an ally of

round column of polished Donegal marble is surmounted by a figure of Erin with a wolf dog on one side and a harp on the other The monument bears ap propriate inscriptions in English Irish and French The day selected for the unveiling was a holiday and the weather being fine people from all the country round attended the crowd being so great as to block the streets of Ballina Near the monument was erected a platform o and on it and above it the tricolor the stars and stripes and the green flag were flung to the breeze in great profusion 5 Miss Maud Gpnne the Irish Joan o- fF Arc was selected for the unveiling of tlte mn men arc tisishe ti1AS sl cheers uprose After the unveiling an offering of flowers was deposited at the base of the monument by Mr DEsparbes of the Paris Le Journal who then spoke for a few minutes saying that his hope for the future was that the green flag of Ireland and the tricolor of France wouldwave over Ireland as in 1798 Frank Hugh ODonnell in an address said in pointing to the American flag that it looked to him as what was the grow ing danger to English policy- A feature of the occasion was that the thousands of the Mayo peasantry assem bled were addressed in three languages the English French and Irish One of the French visitors was Mr Duffand an artist of distinction and wearing the decoration of the Legion of Honor He intends he said to paint a picture of 98 for the Paris Exposition and is utilizing his visit to Ireland to col lect material for the scenery of the monument to Gen Humbert recalls stirring events in the West of Ire land during the fateful year of 08 His campaign was brief but it was brilliant and heroic and has transmitted to the peasantry and to national pride the curi ously descriptive phrase for a battle the races of Castlebar But Gen Humberts force was not only inadequate for an ag gressive or prolonged movement but he came too late The insurrection in Vex ford and elsewhere had been suppressed and the struggle of the united Irishmen was virtually ended and the fires quenched in blood before his ship touched the shore of Killala But his r arrival aroused new hopes andcould there have been any concert of action the end might have been different The stories of Humberts landing his victories and his surrender may be briefly told in connection with the monument to his memory A British force under the command of Major Kier stationed at Balliua heard of his landing at Kallala and in the morning marched out to re pulse him In the evening the troops returned to Ballina and in panic The next morning they marched out and quick upon their heels the French entered but only an advance guard of about 200 led by Sarrazin one of the intrepid soldiers who marched through Europe under the eagles of France The next day Gen Humbert with his 1000 men came and along with him were the thousands of peasants and mountaineers armed with pikes or such weapons as they could find Forward c went Gen Humbert until Castlebar he saw on the crest and on the slopes of the hill of Burren 0000 British troops drawn up with nearly a score of field guns The battle that followed was a most desperate and

The Lakes of KillarneyYes beautiful Lakes of Killarney famous in song and famous in story the earthly paradise of Ireland is to be sold to the highest bidder And not only these historic three little sheets of water but 13000 acres of mountain wood and stream and meadow that line their borders are to be put on the market at the same time for any millionaire who may come along Whoever puts up 250000 will be the actual owner not only of Killarney lakes but lord of the manor of the vast estates of Herbert of Muckross Mrs Howard Gould who was the charming Miss Katherine Clemmons of the stage like everybody who has wandered about the domain has fallen in love with it and it is reported that young Howard Gould has an option on it and will become Gould of Muckross and Killarney If he does not purchase there are several co operative movements on foot to secure the property and convert it into a nation al park for Ireland It needs hardly to be added that it is one of the loveliest spots on earth swarming with deer and all kinds of game and fowl and fish What the owners of the Lakes of Killar ney have to offer American millionaires besides the lakes First there are the demesne and home farm comprising about 400 acres of arable land and planta tions including Brickeen and Diris islands and the old historic abbey situated in the grounds overlooking the lower lake TJienthere istheniansjotjJiojjse fully furnished known as Muckross abbey taking its name from the old Franciscan settlement beautifully placed on Dunday bay an inlet of the middle lake with its several lodges And there if the demesne of Lord Brandon on the upper lake with its charming residence Glebe House its cottage the deer forests well stocked with the famous red deer its thickly wooded plantations of Tomies Purple Mountain one part of Caberna bone part of Mangerton and Tore with several smaller hills in all about 20000 acres in which are the famous cascades known as the OSullivan aud Tore And along with these go the exclusive shooting rights over these vast tracts abounding with game and wild fowl to ether with the fishing and several well stocked lakes and rivers in the mountian districksTruly a tempting bait to any one able to purchase and maintain such a regal possession I Valuable in any country it is doubly valuable from its historic associations and unrivaled natural beauties It has been truly said Nature has made but one Killarney and only there can a Muckross be found It is useless here to attempt any fur ther description from a scenic or tourist point of view Descriptions of this paradise on earth and these glorious lakes are found in all the guide books but some very interesting details of a differ ent nature are well worth giving here The demesnethat is the domain of the Herberts is in firstclass order The grand old trees have been tenderly dealt with as necessity demanded and the walks and drives are well maintained and the cottages are all in good repair The Mansion HouseMuckross abbey is a modern structure in Elizabethan style It would be difficult to find a more splendid sight with its background of Tore and the lake lying peacefully within almost a stones throw Then too it has been hallowed by royalty The Queen and the Prince Consort stayed two nights there in 1861 It contains in all eight reception rooms and thirtyfive bedrooms vast cellars pantries closets and extensive servants quarters The house is replete with every modern requirement and its sanitary ar rangements have recently been thorough lyoverhauledThere for many horses fine boating a garden and private ornamental grounds During their recent visit to Ireland the Duke and Duchess of York Visited the abbey and declared it fit for a royal residence The Glebe House distant about half a mile is a substantial structure in excel lent repair It is in its own grounds and would form a very luxurious residence for the overseer of the estate The de mesne and cottage referred to as Lord Brandons is distinct from the Muskross demesne proper at the extreme upper end of the upper lake The title of Brandon has long since expired and the property came into the possession of the HerbertsTourists after going through the Gap off Dunl6ej quiet pass through this de jne neriH the JTMCMM of the mountains before reaching the lake where tUtir r 7 J i r f rr fo boat

throughout the year+ and here are to be found in the open tropical plants flourishing in full bloom and splendor which to succeedt in any other part of the district have t be specially cared for t The shooting and fishing re practically unlimited The mountain may be de scribed as one vast deed forest The noble animals the last of their kind in Ireland roam at will over iie mountains belonging exclusively to the Kenmore and Muckross estates Th owners have always watched over then with jealous care and as a result the mountains may be said to be swarming 1t with these kings of the forest In pakSing it may be of interest to note that quite recently six kinds were sent front II ckross over to the Queens deer forest ac Windsor It may also be noted that one of the mount ain drives was opened bythe Queen dur ing her visit in 1861 and iinow known as the Queens drive one of the chief tourist roads In the demesne close to the house are to be seen the Royal Oaks five in number two of which were planted by the Queen and Prince Constt and the ra uiainder by other members of the royal family during their visit to Muckross And now for the abhythe famous Muckross abbey that may soon belong to an American nabob It is commonly referred to as Muckross abbey The cor rect name is The Abbey of Irrelagh and comprises the wellpr served ruins of a monastery founded by Chief MacCarthy for the Franciscan Friarsin 1340 This and the church attached and the public burial ground surrounding are the only parts of Muckross that tile public have aright of entrance to 1j Books could be written con erning the abbey itself Antiquariahs have devoted much time and labor toward clearing up all doubts concerning iits origin and his tory It is unique Its has braved the stress and storms of existence for over five hundred years atil1 excepting its roofvhfclde1Layicl the rstge of the Cromwellians it is to all appearances fit to endure the trials of an other cycle of existenceThe cloisters shadowed by the yew tree supposed to be coevil with the building itself are a never ending source of interest to the thousands who annually visit Muckross The ultimate fate of Muckross is natur ally a subject of great interest in Killar ney Sell Muckross and close it to visit ors and Killarney as a tourist resort will be practically extinct The majority of the inhabitants of the town depend on the tourist traffic for their existence Strong hopes were at one time entertained that Muckross would be bought by the Government and become a royal resi dence but that delusion has been dis pelled within the last few days Situated in any other country it would in all probability be acquired and maintained as a national park Ireland will regard it as a national calamity should the his toric lakes and the Muckross the Fair fall into the hands of any one who in his proud selfishness would close its gates and allow none to enter this Eden of the Emerald Isle but those happy in his friendshipIt been the timehonored custom for years to allow the public to sail over the waters and wander over the parks of this earthly paradise The report that Killarney is to be sold has aroused Irishmen everywhere to prevent its purchase by any one who may close it to the public and the suggestion that they join in an effort to buy an pre serve it in all its beautyas a public park meets with hearty approval and offers of substantial cooperation Wealthy Irish Americans of New York promptly re sponded and though reports of their action may be premature they have taken hold of the matter and may be I successful The men reported to have contributed to the fund and consented to push it to accomplishment are Richard Croker William R Grace James J Coogan Thomas J Dunn Eugene Kelly Jr Thomas Addis Emmett William Astor Chanler John F Carroll Maurice F Hollahan William OBrien John T Fitzgerald Andrew Freeman Bourke Cockran and others Some of these gen men denied their connection with the deal but all admitted their willingness to join such move and later ate reported to be actively at work soliciting subscrip tions and arranging to carry out the plan Mr Croker is in Ireland where at the request of Mr Coogan he went to make an offer and obtain an option on the property Mr Coogan said that Richard Croker had wired him that he would go to Kerry for the express purpose of look ing over the famous Herbert lake proper ty and that if the grounds could be acquired he would at once make arrange ments for their purchase James Boothby Roche former member of Parliament for Kerry In which district the

prominent before the world as today The guest of kings and dukes and ambassa dors he is talked of in both continents In so far every one will be interested in learning something more about the personality of this remarkable man Arch bishop Ireland passed his sixtieth birthday on the llth of last September but both mentally and physically appears to be in the prime of life His hair is iron gray and there are furrows in his fore head but the casual observer would not guess his age as more than fortyeight The archbishop lives in one of the beauty spots of the city of St Paul His house is located at the corner of Leslie and Portland avenues two blocks north of Summit avenue said to be one of the three most charming drives in America In this home he spends most of his time when in the city His life there is as simple and unostentatious as it is possible to make it He arises regularly every morning at 5 oclockand the two hours from that time until 7 he employs in the devotions common to his church At 730 he breakfasts with the members of his household lIe is a man of great per sonal magnetism a conversationalist of unvarying interest and of remarkable versatilityThe hour over he retires to his study runs over the morning papers summons his secretary and begins the labors of the day Here becomes evident his startling grasp of every subject from church to charity front parochial school tosemiuary His hours from 9 oclock to noon are spent in his study His very voluminous correspondence out of the way he writes or dictates a sermon or reads At noon devotions are resumed after which dinner is served and at 2 oclock the archbishop appears promptly at his office at the cathedral Here all the priests of the see of St Paul who have grievances or who wish orders suggestions or instructions are expected to appear No business of this character is transacted at the home of the archbishop This work goes on from 2 to 4 and at 5 oclock the distinguished prelate returns to his home and to his devotions The evening meal is served shortly after 6 and the hours thereafter till 9 are given over to study and work of other character lIe retires not far from 10

thing than was necessary to secure such results as one would expect in a great workshopThe never varies his dress the coat being an extraordinarily long Prince Albert He wears no jewelryfwhatever and

misfits more ama r teurish than some of our ruraltt sheets Last week a London daily A announced as a sensation that a prominent and wealthy Irishman inI America Jiad written to a high r officer of the English Government offering to buy Ireland and statc itsi that the cash was ready but the piper was not authorized to give the name of the writer tor f Jn 4 p A k 5 I receiver of the letter This stamp

telegraph made a botch of rivalh1Only the American newspapers un derstand how to do that The Lon don papers are far too slow to catchl on to the racket of publishing thee news before it happens They usually give it after it has beenl read and forgotten in this country A good sign of the times in Ireland is that the Evening Mail of influs ential Unionist newspapers of Bel tfastthe Ulster Echo ond the Eve publishegd somewhat significant articles on th latest Belfast riots They all three emphatically condemn the rowdy ism and violence of Monday an Monday night and agree in ex pressing the opinion that they hav brought disgrace upon the city They moreover repudiate on behalf of the respectable of Belfast all connection with the rioters tAnthony Kelly who recently died in Minneapolis left an estate providingffor his family his will makes bequests for charity and education lAll unimproved property is to be sold and out of the proceeds 10 per cent is to go to the Orphan Asylum for Boys House of Good Shepherd Little Sisters of the Poor Council of St Vincent de Paul and 1000 to the convent of Christian Broth ers in St Paul Of his life insur ance 6000 is to be invested for an aged aunt and at her death is to go to the Archbishop of St Paul to be invested till it amounts to 10000 when it is to be applied to founding a school for boys in Minneapolis in charge of the Christian Brothers A FRIEND OF LABOR So for as his record indicates Mr David IJ Henderson of Iowa who will be Speaker of the next Congress seems to have been the friend of labor The bill providing for arbitration in the case of labor troubles was called up in the House during the closing days of the Fiftythird Congress and but a short time given to its discussion It was passed without opposition and without a yea and nay Hendersonesaid Bringing this bill up only five days before adjournmentthere is really no hope of its becoming a law But now that it is before us I appeal to the friends of the workingman and fair play between all interests that we do our duty by acting now that we have a chance In the Fiftyfifth Congress when the Labor Arbitration bill was finally enacted into a law Mr Henderson was paired in its favor on the final passage of the bill The bill to create the nonpartisan Industrial Commission went through the House without protest and without the formality of a yea and nay vote In com mon with other members Mr Henderson favored it In discussing the proposed eighthour law in the Fiftyfirst Congress Mr Henderson stood up aft the friend of the workingman as follows The time has come for a fair division of profits between capital and labor and the money invested will prosper better if contentedwith a fair share and let the laboring partner for in equity he is such get his fair share Let the Government set the example It will make our people happier and our Government stronger Let us pass this bill feeling it is right and let us pass the other measures before we stop the good work leFus make the Allen Contract law so strong that not a loophole will be left Our first duty as lawmakers is to our workingmen let the Old World look out for hers I am unalterably opposed to letting the foreign laborer steal the work of our people either by bringing in contract labor or which is just as bad the product of outside labor New Albany is waking up and

New York for Hammersteius summer resort from Chicago It is the invention of Bruce Miller a Chicago physician and it took him ten years to complete this wonderful musical curiosity One by one the figures were made and each one connected with the operating instrument which resembles a pipe organ from which Mr Miller directs their movements They get up and sit down and tune their instruments Every finger moves as it would in real life To accomplish this requires 3000 bellows varying in size from one square inch to six square feet There is a mile and a quarter of tubing connecting 6000 valves Mr Miller who is the only man who knows how to operate the invention sits at a keyboard from which he con trols every figure and every motion He can cause any one figure to play or iif he wishes he can make them play in uni son Thus every pulseless player even to the base drummer becomes a soloist The eleven ladies in white satin who compose this wonderful orchestra stand make their bows and sit before then instruments and when they have finished their selections are turned with their faces to the wall locked up and left alonea fate of course more terrible than anything else in the world if they could sure enough talk and feel Certain it iisI that the first niglmters and gay young dudes who call on the soubrette and chorus girl after the play is over will in this particular lady orchestra have a chance to save their money The peculiar avidity with which people wish to see and hear spiritualist and trance mediums only illustrates a morbid curiosity on the part of Catholics among them who already know from the Church of the existence of a life beyond the thaet will keep us secure when the billows of distrust and infidelity will have engulfed our less fortunate

Jeffries is the man who best typifies the endofthecentury gladiator The an cient Greek athlete the Roman soldier the Caesars and the barbarous Gaul would have stood before Jeffries in amazement and

Jeffries is six feet one and a half inches The battle of comfort versus vanity is over and vanity won Dame Fashion has decreed that high heels again be worn It is not long since the dress reformer exulted in the fact that the age of French heels had passed that common sense shoes were to be worn forever and aye and that skirts were neverno neveragain to be seen taking the place of street sweepers But all this is passing away and with the end of a decade or two both hideous styles are creeping slowly but surely like a malana upon the fetlnlue world The dainty short skirt is gone and the comfortable broad soled shoe is no longer visible but in stead that parent of headaches backaches and countless other ills has taken its place Verily the discomforts arising from the frills and feathers of fashion are as acutely pointed as is the French heel Even the menthose models 1 of senseare taking to the shirt waistfor themselves The recent Delineators have many new styles for masculine attire and they are to say the least becoming Tucks and puffs collar and tie are ex actly similar to those worn by women or rather ours are just like those worn by men Of all New Yorks charities none is more deserving than that which furnishes pure milk free to the children of the poor Nothing of the kind ona similar scale exists here though it should find a fol lowing in all cities small and large The Modified Milk Laboratory was started in 1891 by Mrs Adler a resident of New York and the good it has done and con tinues to do can not be estimated Sus tained by charity it has progressed beyond belief The saving of child life appeals to all The way to accomplish it is known to but few though the means are within the keeping of many The lives of scores of little ones are preserved and existence made endurable by this commonsense philanthropic woman w1QII WIth a good will set about the work of charity which is now in such a flourish t ing condition The milk is brought

other men He does not pose for canonization after death does not ask for office and will positively not accept one for the sake of enriching brothers cousins uncles and nephews to the thirtythird

NKVIN CUNNINGHAM TO BUY IRELAND Michael Davitt Hopes to See Uncle Sam Purchase Old Erin The London correspondent of the New York Journal interviewed the prominent Irish members of Parliament anent the scheme to buy the Lakes of Killarney John Dillon said I like the ideaI which is characteristic of America and honorable to its men of wealth and their interest in the land of their parentage Col Saunderson saidIII wonder they dont propose to buy the entire island II Swift McNeill saidIII regret that our public spirit at home is not equal to the emergencyPatrick II OBrien the Paruellite whip said I should lIke to see Ireland bought out of John Bulls hands alto gether We should get justice from Brother Jonathan II Michael Davitt The movement to buy the Killarney lakes is very satisfactory to me as indicating a living in terest in all that concerns Ireland among American citizens of Irish extraction I wouldrather however that twenty mill- Ions of our race in the United States would negotiate with England for the purchase of the whole of Ireland so as to liberate it from English rule but I fear such a Jproject is too big an undertaking just now even for your country The gigantic scheme to purchase the Killar ney lakes by IrishAmericans will of course be more popular in Ireland than if some English speculator grabbed the property If we had an Irish Parliament proper action would be taken at once We would buy the lakes and turn the beautiful place into a national park as the United States did with the Yellow stone region II CELTIC PARK The Irish Athletic Association Will

struck with the ritual oft the Romish church and as a matter o fact if one believed in Revelation there is no other possible church for a sensible person to belong to The speaker was Miss Clare Wynne an artist by profession Sle was essen tially a product of the latter end of the nineteenth century In no other era could she have flourished as she was cer taint doing at present The child of welltodo people of the upper middle class who had however no very strong religious convictions she had been highly educated as far as her mind weal- d but her soul had been subjected to a spiritual starvation which resulted in her becoming what she termed a free thinker She was twentytwo now a bright winsome well set up girlwith a mild sweet expression of countenance that was utterly at variance with her pro nounced views and selfwill for she was terribly selfwilled Her companion was a man who tow ered above her in height and was propor tionately built He was not particularly handsome but had a pleasing face and a manly erect carriage He was Clares affianced lover Ernest Ward the son and heir of a country gentleman of large for tune and he worshipped Clare with all lietdoes not fall to every ones share and treated her with a reverential tenderness that even she with all her advanced ideas of womans equality with the sterner sex could not but accept as the recognition of her feminine frailty In theory she repudiated the idea of receiving those small attentions and that delicate delightslherself that she would have been better pleased had Ernest met her upon more equal terms but we doubt nevertheless whether she would have obtained the satisfaction she fondly imagined from such a course of procedure The betrothed pair had just left the Church of the Immaculate Conception in farm street London where Ernest had been assisting at benediction and Clare had been feasting her aesthetic soul on the beauties of the ceremony They were going to Clares studio to view her latest picture intended for the Royal Academy exhibition Ernest was looking troubled as well he might for the following reasons Twelve months previously he had become engaged to Clare Wynne and now in the meantime he hall during a tour abroad become convinced of the claims of the Catholic religion to be the only true one To be convinced with him was a near preliminary to being received into the church and so today the feast of Our Ladys Nativity found him in real truth a sincere Catholic All his thoughts were now for Clare but his prayers and efforts for her conversion to Christianity had been so far unavailing VThe studio was reached and Ernest andsjacket she submitting with a very good good grace for one of her vaunted opin ionsShe had chosen The Death of St Agnes as her subject and well had her talented brush done the work Isnt she lovely I she cried drawing aside the curtain which hid her now finishedwork and Ernest gazed at itI long and rapturously What inspiration prompted you to choose that subject he asked at length If you were a Catholic in heart and soul as well as being the little genius you are it could not have been done better Oh flatterer I exclaimed Clare but with a heightened color that certainly did not indicate displeasure Why should I not take that subject as wellas any other from mythology it iajustShe broke off suddenly as a look at Ern ests face revealed if not actual displeasure I at least a certain disappointment I beg your pardon she said Im treading on your pet corn now am I not But you know I quite forgot that you believed all thesethese things She hadtt been going to say fables from sheerII force of habit Ernest had recovered He put his arm round her slender waist and drew her over to the large window Poor little heathen he said If you could only share my happiness to day I I am very happy Clare pouted with a pretty shrug that was more indicative of the spoiled child than of the strongminded women of many rights Well let us sit down here said Ernest pulling up a lounge I want to talk to you seriously And talk seri ously he did putting before her the re sponsibilities which had come to him with his new religion Clare listened to it all with comparative calmness till there came the question of the promise that would be exacted from her ofallowing any children of their marriage to be brought up as Catholics I could not promise such a thing I have een very liberal you know I believe in i entire liberty of conscience and creede and so how could I acting up to my convictions how could I allow my children h to have their minds biased and their souls trammeled with your socalled religious teachings No Ernest my children should be absolutely free on that point If when they grew up they chose to conform to any religious belief should not prevent them so doing but must positively decline to allow what you call religious principles to be dinned into them from their infancy Ernest listened to this with a face which was ghastly in its pallor It meant only one thing to him pad that wasa parting forever from the one woman he had ever lovedor ever could loves VoN trill tldMkitevst Clarei v1 l l J w l 14 110- c a r r H1 darling he begged because as long as you are in your present frame of mind weI- f We can never be more than what we are to each other she interrupted rising and looking at him coldly Listen Clare he said taking holdI of her small wrist and trying to draw her down to him Can not you see what it means to me It means a lot to your imagination doubtless she replied scornfully draw lug away her hand Here you bring me quite a supposititious case and make all this fuss about it But I have stated my opinions and am not likely to alter them in any way Slowly slue took the diamond ring from her finger and held iit out to Ernest but the hand that offered it trembled a little Take it she said Our engagement is at an end You are free I cant not take it Clare Dont look at me like that dearest Keep it at least till tomorrow She turned and deposited it on a smallII tray saying coldly- It is all the same to me Two minutes later Ernest was gone and Clare had thrown herself on one of the big rugs on the floor a heap of sob bing humanity The next mornings post brought back his ring to Ernest Ward The Royal Academy exhibition was over and Clare Wynnes name was in every ones mouth She had been con gratulated on her extraordinary success until she was tired of hearing about it Her own youth and beauty in combina tion with her talent were freely dis cussed in the public press but praise or adverse criticism were alike thrown away upon her She felt that all was vanity and affliction of spirit and to no one could she turn for comfort Ernest was gone she knew not whither and her heart was filled with bitterness against him She tried hard to find solace in her work but though she had her moments of forgetfulness she could not obtain any permanent relief- I have nothing to live for she would cry out sometimes and then she would dash down her brushes and weep tears hot and vexatious Then again she would resume her work with a feverish energy She was determined that her fame should spread to all quarters of the globe lie will hear of itshe would say to herself He will see that I am quite independent of him j It was during this time that she turned out some of her best work and Ernest heard of it as she had thought Poor ErnestoTwo years had winged their way intopj eternity when one day Clare received a letter from a distinguished Catholic no bleman asking her to undertake the work j of painting the walls of a convent chapel with certain subjects which he would i chooseClare i who was somewhat run down in health thought that a few months sojourn 1 in Devonshire would do her good i so she accepted the commission Never would she forget the impression which her first contact with the nuns and i convent made upon her i It was toward the close of autumn and i the trees and hedges displayed a glorious wealth of crimsoning foliage as she neared the convent which lay at some distance from the town a sweettoned t bell rang out upon the peaceful airit j was the compline bell she was told I She could see the gray spire ol the i convent chapel rising above the circle of trees which had hid the rest of the con ventual buildings from sight and she began to feel a soothing calm stealing upon her wearied soul i In the space of a week she became iis wonderfully at home with the nuns some of whom were sent to her especially dur ing their recreation hour to walk with and entertain her When the light waned she would take a book and sit in the small chapel railed off from the sane tuary for the use of extents and pre tending to read would fall into deep trains of thought while the nuns in gentle plaintive tones chanted the divine 1 office Often too she remained for benedic tion and at last was so impressedwith 1 the evident sincerity and deep devotion of the nuns that she admitted to herself that this religion which they practiced so assiduously was if not true at least well founded Among the pictures which were to adorn the walls she left to the last that of a full length figure of our Lord show J ing His Divine Heart with the inscrip thou written belowlilt is all love and mercy This Clare felt was to be her masterpiece and she threw her whole heart Bud soul into the work As it grew f under her hands she loved it She was irresistibly drawn toward it and the words which she was to paint beneath it constantly recurred to her mind a It is all love and mercy One evening Clare had put the finishing touches to her work and standing at a distance she was examining it critically The mother prioress came up gently to her side and said softly It is beautiful What must the reality be Clare gave a start The realityI Yes surely there was a realm somewhere surely there was more than the emptiness and weariness which at times weighed upon her so heavily j She turned suddenly and clasping the wondering nun in a close embrace saide in piteous tones How happy you are j you believe in Him I believe iioth Jug Oh do help o1eto believe too Dear

the sentiment was echoed by ninny there is a very potent factor to be con sideredErnest Ward Ernest read the news He was iin Africa and the paper he saw was a month old Without losing a day he started on his return to England Clare had given him up For months she had heard nothing of him She thought he was lost to her but it was an immense relief for her to think that some day he would know of her newlyfound happiness One day she had been out and on returning found a small parcel directed to her in a hand that sent all the pulses of her heart throbbing wildlyI With eager trembling fingers she opened it Something dropped out and rolled upon the ground It was her engagement ring and in the covering she found Ernests card She did not send it back this time The next day a wellknown step minus

from the L N railroad to the L S E railway and three more coaches added and at 1035 we leftII over the Lexington R Eastern railway for Natural Bridge A ride of sixtytwo miles up this road is a rare treat and a diversion in itself The condition of the road is now such that all the unpleasant features of travel have been reduced to a minimum while the facilities afforded for comfort and enjoyment are many and marked Leaving Lexington for a time we passed through glorious fields of growing train and agricultural activity blooded stock browsing in blue grass pastures or lolling beside some limpid I brook beneath the shade of wondrous forest trees bespeak one great unrivaled unquestioned glory of Kentucky Con tinuing the journey we passed out of the blue grass region into a section of the State not so famed although marvelous in the grandeur of its rustic beauty This what is commonly called the mountain region of the State upon whose crags and knolls and beneath whose flinty soil un told millions of timber and mineral wealth repose Here the scenery is pier uresque and often inspiring in its rugged ness Towering Umbercrowned peaks madly rushing torrents startling yet beautiful cascades these tell of the age upon ages gone when Nature battled with herself of the fabled days of giants and gnomes and hold a subtle suggestion of the weird and wondrous strains of Lohengrin At Natural Bridge a few people alighted but nearly all went oil to Torrent the I Wonderful that gem of wild mountain scenery that strange and startling prank I which Nature played upon her own countenance in some day of awful antiquity Manager Frazier of the Park Hotel was readyand waiting to receive the crowd andwith true graciousness he did so The uniqueness and grandeur of the scenery surrounding this arch of Natures torrent baffles description One can look upon them long and marvel at their strangeness and beauty and with the looking the wonder grows All too soon did rite pleasant moments speed away and the time for departure come With reluctant farewell look the departure I was finally taken and goodbye said to TorrentArriving at Natural Bridge in a few minutes all left the train to find amuse ment for two hours in inspecting the attractions of this wonderful place Many of the excursionists climbed the moun lain and viewed with wonder and delight I the grand exhibition of Natures handi work Natural Bridge Volumes descriptive of the magnificence of the scenery surrounding this wonderful place might be written and the half not be told It simply defies description and I shall not to do it At G oclock we left for home feeling fully repaid for having ridden JOO miles in crowded coaches Thereturn trip was pleasantly made and we arrived home at 10 oplock happy in the

KILLARNEY CONTINUKI IKOM P1RST cart fishingand is mentioned as having con ferred with James J Coogan Mayor Van Wyck and others in regard to the pur chase of the estate by subscription Mr Roche said I dont know but that this matter has become public too soon Let it be distinctly understood please that I am not the promoter of this scheme that I did not route to this country with my hat held out asking for money to pur chase the Muckross estate As I under stand it it was the report that the estate was to be purchased by one of the Goulds that directed the attention of Mr Coogan and other IrishAmericans here to this matter and as I was here and knew more about the property than anybody else they consulted me about it Their proposition seemed to be a llive one and so I have taken an interest in it There are about 10000 acres in the property which it is proposed to purchase and it embraces all the principal objects of interest to tourists If an individual should acquire the property and shut it off from the tourists it would mean the Wiping out of the Lakes of Killarney as a resort for tourists My idea would be to have the property purchased not only by New York Irish Americans but by Irishmen I would subscribe 5000 The cost would be 130000 I would suggest presenting it as a park to the Kingdom of Kerry as we call it but name trustees for it who should be permanent say for instance the Mayor of New York the Archbishop of New York and two Irish dignitaries The park could be made more than self supporting if a hotel were opened in the Muckross abbey CEDAR GROVE

a tender sweetness about some of our common phrases of affectionate greeting simple and unobtrusive as they are which falls like dew upon the heart says a writer in the Catholic Citizen Good nightl the little one lisps it as she toddles off to bed Sisters and brothers exchange the wish parents and children friend and friends Familiar use has robbed it of its significance to sonic of up we repeat it automatically without much thought But consider We are as voyagers put off from time to time upon an unexplored sea Our barques of life set sail and go onward into the darkness and we asleep on our pillows take no such care as we do when awake and journeying by daylight Of the perils of the night whatever they may be we take no heed An unsleeping vigilance watches over us but it is the vigilance of the One stronger and wiser than we who is the eternal good Good and God spring from the same root and the same in meaning Goodby is only God he with you Goodnight is really God night H or God guard the night It would be a churlish house hold in which these gentle forms of speech were ignored or did not exist Alike the happy and the sorrowful day by day may say Good night AaOflCIGARCent Cigar ait
