to the time of his death a member of the Tipperary Urban Council and was extensively en gaged in the wholesale butler trade He was one of the most prominent National ists in the County Tipperary a man of exceptional intellectual capacity and un tiring energy and always foremost in bringing these fine qualities to bear on any movement for the forwarding of the national cause He was a sturdy fighter for his political principlesand took a leading part in the campaign in connec tion with New Tipperary In a practical and selfsacrificing way he gave his gar den as portion of the site for New Tippe

clare his continued support of the great Irish leader and he never once lost faith in the principles of Parnell Whenever Parnell was anywhere in the neighbor hood of the town or even of the County of

most dastardly outrages committed in this city for a long time was perpetrated last Wednesday night upon Miss Rose Hayden and her mother while they were on their way home from A meeting of the Catholic Knights and Ladies of America This is only one of the many assaults and robberies that have happened in this city and all because of the lack of enough policemen The beats assigned patrolmen outside the business portion of the city are altogether too large and until more men are appointed the unsus pecting and defenseless will be at the mercy of she footpad The ladies had reached Nineteenth and Magazine streets when a masked man sprang out from the shadow and dashed the contents of a bottle of ammonia in the elder womans face who fell to the ground almost insensible from pain Then quick as flash he grappled Miss Rosa covering her with a revolver Though she was no match her assailant she fought pluckily but the culprit threw her to the ground aud wrested her pocketbook from her quickly disappear lug Sri the darkness I Had the robbery occurred a few minutes later the culprit might have been apprehendedas Mike Doerhoefer came along and gave chase but was too late He assisted the ladies to their home on Nineteenth street near Chestnut The police were notified and a description given of the robber who has not yet been apprehended Mrs Hayden was prostrated from the fright and for a time her condition was regarded as serious but at last accounts she was out of danger That the robbery was premeditated no one doubts and all I hope the guilty one may yet be caught Miss Hayden is a highly esteemed young lady and her friends regret exceedingly the misfortune that has befallen her I HENRY HEWITTS 1BRTH Henry Hewitt for a number of years with the ToddDonigau Iron

succeeding day brings to light additional evidence that the war now being prosecuted by England against the Boers is an unholy one and instituted as Michael Davitt said only for murder and plunder Englishmen are now beginning to see Chamberlain in his true character and the correspondent of the New York World thus pictures the situation as it now exists in London which will prove depressing readfag to our AngloSaxon maniacsPublic sentiment on the war is under going a marked change The gravity of the situation in South Africa is now rec ognized The struggle is expected to be protractedand

of his shaky position In the spring hewas offered an honorary degree by Dublin University but be excused himself from traveling to Dublin to take it owing to the pressure of official work He has now volunteered to take the degree on the 18th although the work is heavier than ever He thinks the ceremonial will assist in rehabilitating him but it is quite likely to have an opposite effect The Irish Transvaal Committee Is ar ranging a hostile reception for him and if Chamberlain shows himself in public there certainly will be disturbances This will be his first visit to Ireland since he deserted Gladstone and home rule By strange irony this week Chamber lain attained the summit of his floricul tural ambition by securing the coveted prize for a hybrid his own production and the result of eighteen anxious years experiments He christened the orchid Chamberlainlana triumphans a par ticularly unhappy inspiration at this mo ment Nor are his troubles solely politi cal He looks unhealthy and

Southern Indiana took its flight heavenward and the venerable prelate was relieved from his earthly sufferings after an illness of several months duration and although the end had been anticipated for some days pre vious the announcement cast a feeling of gloom in every home in the city of Jeffersonville where he officiated as pastor of St Augustines church for the past thirtyone years Father Audran was one oftbe best known priests in this section of the country having lived in Southern Indi ana since he came from France a youth over sixty years ago He studied for the priesthood and was ordained by special dispensation in 1846 by Bishop Halian dlere his uncle when only twentytwoII years old being the youngest clergyman in the diocese For nearly twentythree years Father Audran was rector of the Cathedral at Vincennes then the most important church in the diocese writes Edward Fitzpatrick He was familiar with the early history of the settlement of the Northwest Territory and

parishioners He was necessarily put through a severe training to prepare for the duties he would be called upon to perform The vocation of a priest is different from that of other professional men Their failure means injury only to themselves but the priest can not afford to lose a single cue for the loss is irreparable and a soul dead in sin can not be recalled to spirit ual life Bishop

every hand are evidence that there is to be no lack of joyousness in its celebration Of all the seasons and festivals of the year this is the most beautiful and it is so essentially a holiday time for children As it is the birth of a little child we commemorate sit is to the little ones that our heart first turn in thinking of this festa day Our minds are carried back thousands of years ago to what the poet so beautifully describes Eut peaceful was the night Wherein the Prince of Light His reign of peace upon the earth began In imagination we can see the stable and the poor surroundings of the Infant and shudderingly we c think of our own near and dear j tots and as if to make in som manner a sort of reparation for the inhospitality of that rude period we shower upon them all that we possibly can think of to make them hap py and devise ways and means toI make them remember this holy seasonThe commemoration of Decembe 25 has come down to us from ages r and each heart responds to the joy ousness that is in the air Eachl heart on Christmas morn echoes back the words Peace on earth ill to men Ittill it would l kere could be no place for but peace and charity iin mtmsWJU Cf

expressions of good will between friends and all cares are for the nonce laid aside But it is not only the material side but the spiritual which should appeal most strongly to us Nineteen hundred years ago the shepherds watching their flocks by night heard the celestial music and knew that sqme untoward event was taking place The three wise men in the East hadl followed the guiding star andl brought their fragrant offerings toI i lay before the King of kings We should also bring our offerings byr remembering Christs lowly ones off earth whom we have always withI usthe poor They should be pre sented as far as we are able nott only with substantial gifts but withL dolls and toys that delight and glad den the hearts and minds of the unfortunate little ones who butt for their neighbors generosity would see no difference betweenL U1 ilday and any other Remem bering that it was a little Babe who i delivered us from bondage we canL with lightened hearts turn to the material enjoyment of the day andl while the bells peal forth the joy otutidin8s these words recur to us and keep ringing in our hearts It is the calm and solemn night A thotiand bells ring out and throw s Their joyous peals abroad and smite The darkness charmed andholynow ftui Might that erst no shame had worn io it a happy name is given taf fri that stable lay newborn frepeaceful Prince of earth and heaves Ia tbe

Congressman Roberts of Utah is a poly amist and ought not to be admitted to Congress he has the law precedent and equity on his side in the Clse thus far His demurrer to the juris diction of the committee to try hiii on mere allegations the right olf Congress to order such trial as he has not been sworn in and is not a member of that body his refusal tc plead until specific charges are pre

markets are the skele tons of the brave Dervishes who were slain by the British guns before Omdur man It must be remembered that these men knew nothing of fear The bravest and hardiest of a strong courageous tribe of people they advanced before every charge made by the English only to fall as grass before the scythe After the fall of Omdurman at least 200 of these brave dead soldiers were stolen from the battle field and taken to London They arc the 1 finest specimens on the European mar kets because their owners were fine athjj letic men in full vigor and in the prime of life After the FrancoPrussian war there were for a time many skeletons of dead French soldiers offered for sale These skeletons were whiter than those of Englishmen and obtained a readies sale For years afterward yellowish skeletons could only be sold at lower prices After the war of the Transvaal the nngJJ lash will doubtless be offering for sale the sturdy skeletons of their dead enemies the Boers

hud dling his great coat on as he spoke an its the bit ansup out o yer own childhers mouths yed give away Mary Conners av ye were let And with the inhospitable words the burly farmer strode from the door and went rapidly down the fast darkening lane while Mary stood looking after him and the little ones stood on their tiptoes to gaze over the topof the halfdoor Sure hes growin harder everyday I dont know wbuts come over him at all at all she explained A greenish light was fading in the sky above the western hills and the road was a confused mingling of dark ruts and little shining patches where the late fallen snow had melted into little pools that caught the last glimpse of light and held it in a silvery gleam Dennis marched on his form in the huge greatcoat making a black blur among the slender dark skeletons of trees and bushed that stood out against the sky He muttered to himself in the collar of his coat as he tramped along and so occupied was he with his unchar itable thoughts that ere he knew it his foot had caught in something and he fell heavily striking his head and with a sense of violent pain losing all conscious ness of his surroundings As the farmers senses slowly returned his opening eyes fell on the strangest sight he had ever beheld and with limbs stiffening with horror he raised himself slowly and gazed wideeyed at a Head which lay in the middle of the roada head with a pale sardonic face dank hair curling round it and black eyes that rested on the terrified Dennis with un winking severity Take me up Dennis suddenly called the grim lips Sure I will sor cried Dennis with abject readiness though his teeth were chattering and he approached the strange object ndgi terIyJireisediNandheldiit- on the arm of UisI C08tn Atl3wlleIe would yer orb w llhi1gtogo To the churchyard came in deep ominous tones A stifled groan broke from the wretched Dennis He set off however carefully now and slowly down the rugged road and through a gap in the broken wall that surrounded the lonesome dark abode of the deadIAs he passed across an old old moulder ing tombstone that lay face downward upon the ground the Head suddenly leaped from his hold and floated before him suspended in the air while a weird gray light played gleaming about the sardonic features that still regarded the shaking farmer with severe calmness Follow me Dennis spoke the au thoritative voice and before Dennis could ask where the tombstone swung back and revealed a deep cavity from which floated a gray misty vapor which envel oped the farmer who now seemed to lose all sense of personality He stepped lightly on the mist and felt himself gently floating downward preceded by the grim ly smiling Head At the bottom of the deep recess a low arch presented itself and stooping to look inside Dennis beheld a mean small chamber hung with festoons of cobwebs and floored and walled by old grave stones over which ran numberless rats and strange creeping things Cowering in the middle of the room was an old withered woman who rushed forward as Dennis appeared and with a fearful smile and many engaging ges tures held out to him in a skeleton hand two very small hard potatoes Dennis rubbed his head glanced from the pota toes to the old woman and back again She continued to grin affably and shook impatiently the band that held her miserable offering j Thank ye kindly maam gasped the farmer at last sure I couldnt take thim Yell be wantin thim yerself down here At his refusal the eagaging smile van ished from the features of the hag and with eyes glaring with disappointment and fury she rushed toward the hesitat ing Dennis who in turn stumbled back ward and fell he hardly knew how just out of reach of the Malevolent out stretched claws and at tite ame moment the ashen light dlsrppearedand the silence was broken by ia burst of music and laughter to the delightful sounds of which came pouring In from all sides crowds of gorgeously attiredl ladies and

strange ac quaintance kindly did you think we had such gala times down here under the sod Sure tis beautiful intirely replied Dennis admiringly an might I make bould to ax who is the queen herself bcyant That Dennis is my wife II said the otherelShe was noted during her life on earth for her charity and generosity to the poor Hence she was on her advent here made queen and ruler over all the spirit company That other whom you saw a little while ago was my first wife but so close and mean was she in life that she never offered to friend or beggar more than the value of those two small potatoes Therefore she is obliged to wait in her damp lone vault until some mortal will accept her miserable offering and only once in a hundred years is any one permitted to descend and give her an opportunity of release As he ceased speaking the gay com pany parted and made ashining lane down which the glittering queen came floating She stopped and gazed at Dennis Is this the mortal she cried reproachful ness sounding in the flutelike tones who refuses to give of his store to aid his starving neighbor And all the bril liant company took up the cry and came thronging about the wretched farmer brushing him with their robes and peer ing into his face chorusing in a confused clangor of reproach and threat and silvery regretells this the mortal who refuses to aid his starving neighbor Dennis sank upon his knees and hid his face in his hands The clamor and rush ing grew louder and more confusedand he crouched lower and lower until sud denly he knew that the queen was hold ing out her wand to him and he grasped it it turned in his hand into the rough wet branch of a tree and lot the gay clamoring scene had vanished and he was lying in the darkness and silence upon the road where he had fallen at twilightThe was faintly gleaming behind the hills when Dennis stiff and cold appeared at the door of his cottage and his wife tearful and wan with watching received him with joy

Over the Re mains of John P Savage PERSONAL AND SOCIETY GOSSIP Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish Americanl LEXINGTON Dec 14Our first letter to the Kentucky Irish American started with a list of marriages and as we have been silent for some time the occasion justifies commencing again with them Of course there will be no weddings in Catholic circles this month but in the early part of January and the new year there are several couples who will begin a new life and we can but wish them much joy and a long and happy future The courtship of some has been of long duration that of others shortalmost love at first sight First a word as to those who have recently become bene dictsThe wedding of Peter Dempsey of Washington CourtHouse Ohio and Miss Virginia Richardson of this city was a very elegant affair and the happy couple received many costly and handsome pres ents We are a little late but neverthe less congratulate them and wish both a long and happy life The next was the union of Col John B Rogers and Miss Kathryn Norton both of this city The groom was formerly foreman of the Kentucky Stock Farm but is now one of the leading grocers of the metropolis of the Bluegrass He was also for a number of years a member of the Board of Police Commissioners Miss Norton the bride is one of Lexingtons fairest daughters and a most estimable young lady who numbered her admirers by the score They were the recipients of many congratulations and also a large number of elegant presents There were several other weddings during our long silence but the forgoing were the most prominent Among those who will marry after the beginning of the new year are Garret Welsh and Miss Mayme Farrell both of this city Mr Welsh is the popular clerk at the Palace Hotel while the brideelect is a wellknown and highly accomplished young lady They will be united about January20The is also annouli dO- n Stewart and Miss Mayme Matlack both of Lexington whose nuptials will be solemnized during the latter part of January There are several other couples reported but as they have not yet author ized public announcement we will re serve their names for a future issue Speaking about marriages reminds me that there are a number of couples in this city who have been keeping company some of them for the last ten years who can not sum up courage enough to ipop the question They do not take into consideration the number of tons of coal they have burned of course Mike Cronin does not object to this and the time they have consumed or the unusual amount of money spent for candies soda water and of course John McGurk also does not object Christmas gifts theater tickets and numerous other things and the suggestion is made to the young ladies to help those shy young things just a little bit when they will say the work and say it quick Boys take warn ing and pofit by this ere somebody comes along and takes them away from you leaving you with broken hearts The funeral of John P Savage who was killed Friday occurred Sunday after noon and was one of the largest that ever took place in Lexington and the many and handsome floral offerings showed the esteem in which he was held The de ceased was a most estimable young man and in his death the Southern railway lost a valued employe and his family a kind devoted and loving son andbrother He was a member of Barry Council and a large number turned out to pay their last respects Michael Grady aged fiftytwo years a wellknown and highly respected citizen died Monday morning causing inex pressib1egrlefamong a

tile Old Folks as Well Isis Headquarters at Bacon Sons Present a Beauti ful Scone CHRISTMAS PRESENTS OF ALL KINDS With the nearing of the holiday season the uptodate merchant contrives to arrange for his windows and store rooms a display in keeping with the festive sea son Where there were previously only commonplace articles of merchandise to set off the windows and counters there comes with the Christmas tide an array of special holiday offerings that presents a vivid contrast to the everyday exhibits just supplanted- It is a well known fact that Louisville people are in a far more prosperous con dition than for severrl Christmases just past and in view of this fact our mer providingattractive displays of their holiday wares One large store of this city in particu lar is always a sort of Santa Claus head quarters The children from year to year look forward with joyful anticipa tion to the time when J Bacon Sons on Market street between Preston and Jackson shall announce to the public that their ever populardisplays are ready inspectionThe came Saturday and in the alternoon hundreds of little girls and boys were crying to go to Bacons Indulgent mothers could not resist nor did they even try for it must not be forgotten that grown people love to see Bacons windows just the same as the little people The consequence was that early Saturday afternoon the usual crowd had gathered about the well known east window which is a house hold word all over Louisville for its in genious Christmas displays The side walks were soon blocked and it was with great difficulty that the freight handlers unloaded the great wagons full of Christmas novelties that were lined up against the curbing The famous east window this sea son presents to the astonished eyes of the little one three wonderful jugglers and a tightrope walker The latter is a fanciful figure dressed in pink and blue who does surprising things on the tight rope Every now and then the children would clutch mammas hand thinking the harlequin was going to fall But not so Instead it was just a little trick of his to surprise them Then while a grotesque little Fillipino girl pixyuponanaccordcopand a toweley headed African thrums his banjo the figure raises his foot thrusts it through a hoop in his left hand and then coquettishly waves his red and yel low parasol While you are wondering how he is going to get out of his posi tion he suddenly solves it for you re tracing his pedal in the same way which it went through at the Beginning The three jugglers are very captivat ing themselves The first who is as gaudily dressed as the Humpty Dumpty pictures of our childhood is a magician worth seeing Some of Bacons little admirers are talking of inviting Her mann the great to come up and see a sure enough prestidigitator who deftly knocks his own head off with a fan finds it in a dice box and with a second wave of his wonderful fan restores it to his shoulders If Hermann can beat this they say he is a genius to be sure The second juggler is not far behind in astonishing feats He has a very wise look upou his face all he time and you can easily see that he knows a lot more than you might at first glance suppose He does his trick with a big high hat and a flaming red handkerchief He smiles as he lays the handkerchiefover the hat and you feel right away that he knows his business Then all of a sud den he lifts the covering thrusts his haud in the hat and pulls outa mouse I It is really wonderful and the children clap their hands in genuine glee Covering the hat again the magician smiles pleasantly and then reaches in and takes out the cutest little rabbit you ever saw The third juggler stands at a little table He wears a comical peaked hat like a clown in a circus which he takes off and places over the table When he lifts the hat you behold a beautiful gold ring lying upon the table Then he covers the ring and table with the hat for the second time and when he next lifts it you see a football where the ring lay For the third time he does his mar vellous trick and lol there lies on the table a die Through the entire per formance the Fillipino maid and the little negro boy play on their respective instruments just as if they bad been used to seeing such things all their lives On the inside the display is pretty nearly as mach like fairyland as the pan tomime in the window The toy room is more dazzling and attractive than ever before and the childrensdeUght is pro portionately increased One very strong attraction is a long glass case filled with dolls of all sizes and nationalities Me chanical toys abound in great profusion all plainly marked with their price in large figure- sJ Bacon ic SOBS have long enjoyed an enviable distinction for the ingenloasBea
