President Murphy Reports the Order Ina Flourishing Condition Thomas Keouan Elected County President For Next Two Years IMPORTANT CHANGES IN THE LAWS The biennial convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Jefferson county was held Monday in this city the exer cises taking place in Hibernian Hall County President John A Murphy who occupied the chair opened the proceedings with a spirited address which was given the closest attention The business w4Iotransacted was of a most important char acter and the generally expressed opinion after adjournment was that much prog ress had been made toward the advance ment of the order in Louisville Preceding the convention a brief session of the County Board was held William J McCarthy and Martin Mullen were received as delegates from Division 0 The reports of committees were received and filed after which a committee was appointed to purchase a handsome emblem of the order for presentation to Frank G Cunningham now located in St Louis in appreciation of his services and great work as a member of the County Board The board then adjournedl subject to the call of the new County Presi dentThe report of the Credentials Commit tee composed of the five Presidents r showed all the divisions represented President Murphy appointed the following committees for the convention and a recess was taken to give them time to re portLawsTom Keenan

Kei ran Phil Cavanaugh Thomas Lynch Martin Mullen Upon reassembling the report of Presi dent John Murphy was read to the assem bled delegates It showed that 211 mem bers had been admitted during his term of office The expenditures for charitable work aggregated over 3000 and for death benefits more than 2000 had been paid out and yet there was a handsome sum in the treasuries of the divisions Among his recommendations was one that the order come before the public not oftener than twice a yearSt Patricks day and another to be hereafter agreed upon both occasions to be observed and participated in by all the divisions He called attention to the handsome United States flag and banner belonging to the County Board and urged that they be given the greatest care as they were per haps the finest in the State The report which was an exhaustive one was given the closest attention and made a fine im tipresslon on the delegates His recom mendations were generally reported fa vorably and concurred in The greatest interest was taken in the report of the Law Committee Its recom mendation that the initiation fee be made uniform for all divisions in Jefferson county was debated at length the dele gates being about equally divided upon the question Upon the final vote the recommendation of the committee was adopted Subsequently the initiation fee was fixed at 3 to take effect upon the approval of the law by the State officers This will not interfere with admitting members for 1 for the present therefore all who contemplate joining should do so at once as the new rate may be put In ef fect by July 15 The arguments brought out many good reasons why the initiation fee should be still further advanced the consensus of opinion being that no other similar organization granted so many benefits for the small sums paid in Because the dues and initiation fee are reasonable many have the impression that the Ancient Order of Hibernians is a cheap organization which is a great mistake Because of its excellent management and high character of its memo bership It is enabled to accomplish much that other societies would fear to under take Another moat important law was that relating to the County Board Heretofore that body has consisted of the five officers of the divisions Under the new law the officers of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians will be in the hands of the County Presidents of the divlsioas In the nterim between county conventions but prq vieioa is made for the calling of special conventions whenever the President or o two iwrnhwr think Mceaaary The Aaditbg ComuikUe reported time financial statements of the officers correct witha balance in the hands of Treasurer Kclrau The Standing Committees recommen dations that measures be adopted for doubling the membership that general social meetings be held more frequently and that officers and members exchange visits oftener thus becoming better ac quainted and creating a more friendly intercourse and feeling were unanimously concurred in The Committee on Resolutions reported the following which were adopted amidst the greatest enthusiasm Resolved That we extend to our worthy County President John A Murphy our sincere thanks s fOr the interest he has taken in our order that he has been loyal to the trust imposed on him and has performed his arduous duties in a kind and conscientious manner Resolved That we tender our sincere thanks to our worthy County Secretary William T Meehan for the prompt ef ficient and courteous manner in which he has performed his duties Resolved That we tender our sincere thanks to our worthy County Treasurer Owen Keiran for the careful and con scientious manner in which he has per formed the duties of his important office Resolved That we extend our sincere thanks to William M Higgins repre senting the Kentucky Irish American for the support his grand paper has giveu the Ancient Order of Hibernians that we recommend said paper to all members of the order and the Irish people of Ken tuckyThe Grievance Committee had nothing to act upon and after the transaction of business of minor importance the chair announced that the election of a Presi dent to serve for two years was the next and last order of business President Murphy refused to allow his name to be presented stating that during the past fourteen years he had been many times honored but that whoever his successor might be he would have his hearty cooperation andsupport The first ballot was informal those voted for being Messrs Tom Keenan Wm Meehan Nic Sheridan and Joe Tay lor all of whom were complimented by their division representatives The count of the third ballot slowed a majority over all for Tom Keenan the popular Presi dent of Division 1 and he was declared County President for the ensuing two yearsUpon motion of William Meehan President of Division 2 and seconded by the other gentlemen voted for the elec tion was made unanimous The

ringing speech asking all the members to give his successor their hearty support and send him to Denver two years hence with the best report ever forwarded from Louisville President Keenan responded briefly expressing his appreciation of the honor conferred upon him and the great responsibility of the high office to which he had been elected He pledged his best efforts to carry on the grand work of the order but urged the members to coop crate with him After a motion had been carried au thorizing the convening of the present board at the call of the President the convention adjourned CATHOLIC

Committee has arranged for another which will take place at Fountain Ferry on July 12 At the meet ing at St Boniface Hall last Monday night John J Score was mode General Music Director for the

John Allens Lugubri ous and Laughable Interruption For many a long day Amos Cummings Representative in Congress from one of tbe New York districts has been waiting or a chance to get even with Private John Allen of Tupelo Miss the trouble being that the Mississippi Congressman on one occasion raised a roaring laugh at the expense of the New Yorker The two men are the best of friends and are very fond of jokimg each other Mri Cummings is among the most tender hearted of men and has long been an especial advocate of any and all measures for the protection of American birds Some time ago he was speaking on this subject in the House the occasion being a discussion of Representative Laceys bill to prevent the importation of certain of the feathered tribe Mr Cummings was telling how wicked the English spar rows were Only the other day he saidflI was walking through the Capitol grounds when I saw a poor little robin surrounded by sparrows thatwere picking it to pieces At my approach the sparrows flew away but the robin was unable to use its wings I picked it up and took it to my home aI short distance away There I gave tit a drink of brandy and it died a moment later Under itswingar Here Allen broke in speaking in the jthoetwocbegooe tones u If it was from the bottle out of which you gave me a drink yesterday I wonder it lived even for that moment The House broke into a roar which was repeated at the look of pained surprise assumed by the Mississippi joker Mr Cummings looked reproachfully at his Southern friend shook his fist at him and finally joined in the laugh and sat down without disclosing what was under the robins wing w JEFFERSONVILLE Hlbornlans Elect Their Of ficers Picnic Was a Grand Success Division 1 of the Ancient Order of Hi bernians Jeffersonville held a very interesting meeting Tuesday night with a large attendance of members when the election of officers took place This division has made rapid strides during the past year under the Presidency of

presented an ani mated scene The best of good feeling prevailed and old and young had the good time they expected Division 1 has in its ranks many young members who are hustlers and under the careful directions of the older heads everything they undertake ends successfully but none more so than the picnic just given as the reports of the Finance Committee will showThe crowd embraced the best

Mrs Mary Mulligan a wellknown and highlyrespected lady of the West End aged sixty years met with a ter rible accident which resulted in her death at an early hour Thursday morn ing Wednesday evening

midnight The deceased is survived by a daughter Mrs William Harris and a grown son William Mulligan for whom great sym pathy is felt in the loss of their venerable motherThe funeral took place Friday morning from St Patricks church with solemn requiem mass and the large attendance of sorrowing friends and relatives at tested the high esteem in which she was held Mrs Mulligan was a lady of many Christian virtues whose kindly advice was frequently sought and her sad death cast a gloom over the entire neighbor hood in which she resided None there are who will not say May her soul rest in peace CELEBRATION AT LEXINGTON The members of the Lexington Young Mens Institute are making great prep arations for their annual Fourth of July picnic which will be held at the beauti ful Fair Grounds The programme for this event will be one to attract time young people from the Bluegrass section and as there will be no marked observ ance bf the day here many Lbuisvillians will doubtless attend Here is

Delivered by A Griffith UNUSUALLY INTERESTING EXERCISES The exercises at the seventyninth an nual commencement at St Marys Col lege last Wednesday were unusually bril liant and interesting the programme be ing the best ever presented at that his toric seat of learning There were twelve numbers two of the most inter esting being the Polyglot Tribute to Leo XIII1 and Uncle Sams Tribula tions rendered by the College Dramatic Society The tribute to His Holiness in Irish was delivered by A Griffith and while not generally understood created a decided impression by its musical rendi tion Uncle Sams Tribulations was a pleasing burlesque many times convuls ing the audience with laughter The members of the company displayed talent of a very high order Able orations on Catholic literature and Catholic education were delivered by Messrs Carrico and H Medcalf after which followed the awarding of diplomas and medals and distribution of premiumsDr B Enright of this city Professor of Anatomy in the Ken tucky School of Medicine was hon ored with the degree of Master of Arts and many went from this city to witness the ceremony Dr Enright also de livered the doctorate address which was pronounced one of the most scholarly and brilliant ever heard within the walls of St Marys and we feel justified In printing it full It was as follows Very Rev President Very Rev and Rev Visiting Clergy Rev Professors and Associate Lay Confreres Ladies awl Gentlemen The approaching meridian of day admonishes due lto be brief in addressing you Brevity is the soul of authorship so likewise eloquent terseness is the magic charm that lures us on to n delightful forgetfulness of passing time A score of years is a very long time in an indi vidual life That be as It may twenty two years have come and gone since I receive the degree of A B Batchelor of Arts God knows since that time I have had my ups and downs my suc cesses and my reverses my defeats and my triumphs But during all th years I have never ceased to be a stutj and hope to continue as such as long my memory remains a power of my mind and that an attribute of my soul Therefore the pith of whatever I may be about to say is not especially intended for the audition of this splendid con course representing they do the beauty and chivalry of this grand old Common wealth but is to be specifically directed to the consideration of these young men upon whom degrees are about to be conferred as well as those that look for ward to the day of their graduation Advice is the cheapest thing In the world but to you who are about to enter the real battle of life perhaps afew words of counsel may be of an inestimable value A wise counsel may serve as a compass to direct your way A number of these may serve as so many beacon lights

IRISH AMERICAN 326 West Green Street 1900LOUISVILL1JUGGLING THE LAW i i In the CriminnJ Court a negro indicted for burglary was proven to have entered a house in the day time and carried off a quantity of I clothing At the conclusion of evidence for the prosecution his attorney asked for dismissal on the ground that under the statute burg lary could only be committed at night and as the offense for which his client was indicted was com iLmitted in daytime he could not be guilty The point was evidently well taken as the court promptly granted the motion and au acknowledged and proven thief was turned loose upon the community instead of being sent to the penitentiary The indictment being defective the prisoners attorney can not be blamed for taking advantage of it and the Judge could not rule other wise The acting Prosecuting At torney Mr Parsons having been sick for monthsis responsible It- is bis duty to give legal advice to the grand jury and draw up indict ments and an indictment so glar ingly at variance with the law that the court is forced in the face of the evidence of guilt to discharge the accused is certainly discreditable to the acting Prosecuting Attorney Nor is this case thet only one such instances are altogether too frequent in our Criminal Court The record shows that of 560 indictments re turned there have been but 180 convictions not onethird It is such results in the name of justice that bring the law and courts into contempt CAN NOT SUSPEND SALARY In New York an important decis ion affecting workmen was render ed in the case of Pfeffer vs Freed man Fred Pfeffer the wellknown Baseball player entered into a Contract with Freedman to playact base for the New York club jra season After a while Pfeffer was shifted to other positions and and finally on pretence of ineffi ciency he was suspended without pay As he was prevented from playing with other clubs or engag ing in any other business for the remainder of the season Pfeffer sued Freedman for salary for the time of his suspension Though the trial afterwashearing the main facts summarily gave judgment to Pfeffer for the amount claimed and attorneys fee in addition The Judge held ad mitting Freedmans defense that Pfeffer was inefficient while the former might have been justified therefor in terminating the contract and dismissing Pfeffer since he simply suspended him retaining him to the contract and preventing his obtaining other employment during its term and as Pfeffer was during that time ready and willing to play ball Freedman must pay the salary for the entire term of the contract pay the costs of the trial and the fee of Pfeffers attorney The decision is very important in baseball circles where it will likely cause a widespread reform and stop the onesided and arbitrary con tractsand unjust treatment of play ers but will probably knock out the reserve clause under which club managers claim a player until re U teased even after the expiration of his contract and the stoppage of his salary and he is not permitted to sign without consent of the man a ageoient for which thousands of ilollaraare often paid of which the player recieves nothing nor is her Bellowed even a voice in the trans action but must play at such place and on such terms as life former employer wbefiiie not pnyinjf Kist anything nor bound to retain him may decide for a consideration Such a contract is clearly null and the above decision not only so indicates but opens the way and gives a rule for procedure in behalf of the players that will no doubt betaken advantage of The decision likewise and more directly effects workingmen too many of whom are required to give their time for nothing In factories in this city employes are requires to be in the workroom from the whistle in the morning till evening but are only paid for work actually performed either by piece or other standard Such employes are full entitled to pay for full time Wr have so advised and contended At employer can hire or not may dispense with the employe when not needed but so long as he retain him whether actually at work 01 not the employe is entitled to pay and a test case in the courts will sc result and put a stop to the injus tice to workmen in vogue in not a few factories in this city There has been a marked falling off in the number of saloon licenses this year The only reasonable cause assigned for this is the mauy licenses granted by the Commissioners to barrel houses and other disreputable resorts The barrel houses are a disgrace to any com munity patronized by the worst classes and dispensing mixtures that will certainly degrade and de moralize all who are so unfortunate as to drink them There are good men on the board but they should take a day off and investigate the doings of these dens of iniquity Otherwise they will be held re sponsible for more stringent laws governing the liquor traffic And the Boer war still goes on despite reports and hopes to the contrary News is meager but the English forces are attacked and liar rassed at every move and an unus ually large force seems necessary to maintain communication between Gen Roberts and his base of sup plies With both capitals in pos session of the English the Trans vaal and Orange Free State Gov ernments still seem intact and in full working order with organized armies in the field and but little interruption in hostilities Terms of surrender offered by Roberts and Buller last week were rejected by Gens Botha and Dewet the Boer commanders The Republican convention at Philadelphia nominated William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt as its candidates for President and Vice President amidst great en thusiasm Kentucky was never in the race for second place on the

seventh century B C Everything dis covered in the Palace of Minos including a mastiffs head in Parian marble andrrn fine fresco were realistic and natural beyond anything that could be looked for The most important fact is the constant evidence of intercourse with Egypt in the eighteenth and subsequent Pharaonic dynasties During the late eclipse it is said that near Birmingham Ala a stone weighing about forty pounds fell among a shower of rocksr striking an aged negro fisherman killing him almost instantly Ills son who was with him at the time said that a loud rumbling noise was heard and the

time since a picture was brought to the Louvre and offered for sale its owner claiming that it was a genuine Raphael Experts could throw no light on the genuineness of the production but still they would not say that it was not the work of the master Many thought it to be done if not by Raphael at least by a contemporary or perhaps by- a pupil It found a purchaser however and wheu turned round

bottomless abyss of despair Now this proposition implies that at least inI the natural order there is no such thing as a stand still We progress or we ret rograde is a truth that can not be crushed Nature is never inactive inertia is a thing foreign to Itand as this is trUe inI both the mineral and vegetable kingdoms it likewise holds good in the animal do main Any animal that is forcibly keptI in an apparent state of inactivity will not remain as it is but will wither and die Even after the life has gone out the ma terials of the carcass still remain active and change apparently into entirely new substances when In reality they are the same substances the same elements though in a different state of chemical combination So man the highest type of the animal kingdom created as he is by God with a soul breathed into him at the instant of conception by the same omnipotent power can not remain quies cent without retrograding So young man if you wish to go backward do nothing make no effort let the worldI as the saying goes jog along and you will arrive at a deplorable destination as sure as there is a sun in the heavens nay more as sure as there is a God On the other hand if you wish to advance you must not only be alive but you must be aggressive progressive fighting men Fight for the honor and glory of God wage war in behalf of your fellowbeings and do battle for your interests and your honor To do these things you must em ploy those talents and that genius God has endowed you with Use that brain the same Divine hand may have lavished upon you Right here I may take this opportunity to remark that we are all created equal insofar as our souls relate to God but that some of you have facul ties superior by far than those of your classmates is not to be gainsaid Again the mind is a power of the soul and that some minds are greater than others it is but folly to deny Now know this there is such a thing as quality as well as quan tity of brain and vice versa There is also such an entity as a sharp cultivated brain and an untutored lethargic one but other things being equal the greatest results will accrue from the efforts of a man that has quantity in abundance and that characterized by a quality of a su perior excellence Some of you that arc considered shining lights todayyou that stand at the head of your classeswill have to fight like Trojans to retain your advantage You are brilliant you learn as it were without effort but mark my words unless you learn to think carefully and rea son accurately that man at the foot of the class may distance you when the final round is made in the race of life I is true that if you have a sufficient quan tity of this splendid brain substance and that fortified by a strong physical frame you will be a hard man to down But iif you have only a limited quantity n a matter how excellent the quality can never hope to successfully cope against the man that has both quality and quantity backed by a vigorous con stitution Without these requisites such a man will wear out too soon his spark of life will go out before the zenith iis reached Brilliant scintillations may emanate from such a brain but these ephemeral flashes will never light the way for a man to reach fames aerial heights or land him on the shores of an historical immortality Therefore the man that is at the foot of the class nee not necessarily be discouraged for he iis there for one of two reasons either he has no brains or else he has failed to make use of those God has given him I he has not the former he will certainly always remain in the rear But there are men in every college class that have great brain power but they are slow in action they perceive slowly and they necessarily can not compete with a bright open mind that grasps rapidly and accurately They are not first in the class of today they are seldom found at either end of college classes but in the mundane class especially when the race of life is nearly oer you find them in the front ranks fighting contestfng every inch of ground and finally distancing all competitors So young man whoever you may be be not discouraged cultivate that brain an if you have a reasonable quantity even though it be of only moderate quality your mental fire will bum on Ambition will fan it so that when you reach the acme of your intellectual development your mind will be as it were a roaring conflagration sweeping all things in the path of its progress Difficulties will vanish as shadows on a clearing morn obstacles will melt as mountains of snow would under the torrid rays of an equa torial sun- There is an avocation that each of you can succeed best inin otherwords each one of you has a vocation for some par ticular calling I do not deny but that a number of you may succeed moderately well in one or more of several avocations but as a rule peace comfort contentment success eminence in this or that walk o life is to be attained only by those especially fitted for a particular calling Poets are born likewise orators Physi clans are made but the doctor is born Some of you can best succeed in mercan tile pursuits and if your inclinations lead you that way by all means enter the field of commercial conflict Some of you will make good farmers for the very good rea son that God has fitted you to be wise agricultural savants while those of yo who are adapted to be good husbandme- even with a start of millions will die pen ales beggars if yoU dabble in the stocksI of Wall street Others of you may have inherent legal talent if so enter the arena of law Again some oneOC at beet limited number of you may have quell tiudJinclinations that will fit you to follow the beaHiag art to bivouac theI youenter1 l into it let it be your life work Leta your t very presence in the sick chamber be ad it were a healing balsa May your ten der velvety touch be a magic elixir of hope and may your kind sweet voice 1 roll out mellow period of comfort and consolation to the afflicted ones nay more may your kindly smile generate dew drops even from fading eyes that shall be wholesouled crystals of an un dying gratitude from the suffering onesii And if there is just one teaching child i j f among you enter the teaching field andt foster that marvelous gift for the harvest is great and the laborers are few And if perchance there is even one of you that has the holy vocation to be n priest of God enter its sacred precincts and forti fied by a grace divine faithfully minister to the spiritual wants ofnO suffering repentant contrite humanity the bread of eternal life that they may be saved Do this and a diadem of glory awaits you more brilliant by far than all the gems that have added luster and adorned the crowns of mundane kings The allim portant duty devolved upon man during this period of probation is the souls sal vation The soul lost all is lost and as we have will memory and understand ing it behooves us as rational and intelli gent beings to continue as students mtilj the candle of our life has burned to the socket The vivacity of youth and the developing strength of manhood is yours and the future dawns upon you with its wonderful possibilities But even when you have found your true vocation and entered therein would you know the golden key that unshackles the hid den arcanas of nature and unfolds to the mind of man grand truths you must ever remember the final line in Long fellows beautiful psalm of life Learn to labor and to wait Work is the one great grand pre requisite to success in this or that pur suit and he who wishes to attain emi nence or even keep with the giant strides being made in the different avocations of life must work There is no way of get ting out of it The history of science is replete with examples where persever ance coupled with an unfailing energy a tireless industry and an unwearied deter urination have achieved grand results but is barren of a single instance where talent and genius alone have accom pUshed anything A few examples How long might the untold wealth of a new world have remained hidden from man kind were it not for the profound study and indefatigable labor of our Saviors crossbarer Christopher Columbus Es chew the delusion that the movements of the heavenly bodies ever accrued to the mind of man without study and observa tion Believe not for a moment that dis coveries are made by mere talent much less by chance Think not that the grand inventions so characteristic of our dayare simply the outpourings of genius and the result of accidental occur rences All the geniuses of the world as such never made a telephone or discov ered the Roetgen rays that make it possi innermosttstructures of his own economy andenable him to look through them as readily as we look through a peso of glass with an unaided eye A genius can plan can de constructsavery exercise of genius implies mental effort and where this is there is activity A single thought never emanated from the brain of man without the activity of the componant parts of that viscus And if activity is not work what is it In this as any other country all the great lights in this or that field have been and are men that get up early work steadily and let no day pass without having accom plashed something Did time permit I might go on to enumerate the names of beendcharacterized by an untiring devotion to resulttheir suchffacts as these will surely inspire you with an ambition second to none and a perse thetsoul has plumed its wings and heaven ward gone and the lifeless form is wrapped in its sepulchral shroud But amidst all these alluring aspects you must ever remember your duty to God ever remember that there is a fixed limit to the acquiring of knowledge through human

The human body is the most econom- Ical machine in the world It takes iin about eight and onethird pounds of food a day in the shape of water oxygen and solids This food gives man his power of doing work It gives the strength for bodily muscular and mental work The heart does 120 foot tons of work in twen tyfour hours If the full work of the heart for that period could be gathered toofs weight one foot high The muscles breathing do twentyone foot tons work per day The work of the whole body in all iits actions for twentyfour hours amounts to about 3400 foot lose This enormous working power is developed from food in twentyfours Over 3000 foot tons go to produce heat which to a tnodeof motion and is necessary for every vital process actualustuetnremembered that 3000 foot tons abou-

Castlegregory recently several guns were discovered buried in the sand hills A young chap named Parkes son of the manager of the Tralee Dingle railway while in pursuit of a rabbit found the stock of a gun protrud ing from a burrow The youth pulled forth the piece and came on some more Us whoewerebequickly on the scene The sand was cleared away and nine fowling pieces were dug out They are believed to have been hidden away there during the moonlighting period of fifteen years ago The police have taken charge of the find There can not be much hoped for a people who get alarmed when they see a gun and who give informa tion of the find so quickly to the peelersThe opening of the splendid new schools of St Colmaus Kilkeel augurs well for the future prospects of the youth of the district Considerable difficulty was experienced in procuring suitable site but it was solved by the Earl and Countess Kilmorey who bestowed on the people the magnificent site on which the buildings stand No pains were spared to make the work a success and the Very Rev Dr Marner is to be congratulated on having added one more to the list of his successful undertakings and in having left no district in his parish unprovided with schools The weather was particu larly auspicious Its bright sunshine seemed to smile on the opening day of the career of usefulness which the build ings are destined for Two

neigh borhood of 120000000 at the present market price of the un wrought metal Of this huge amount of gold there is probably not a single pound in its virgin state Nearly every ounce of it has passed through the hands of skilled arti sans who have worked it into countless forms thus adding perhaps a third or a quarter more to its value NOT THE ONLY ONE A young man fresh from school who plumed himself much upon his learning had been trying to confound an Irishman with a confused jargon of quotations and references to authors at enmity with the Catholic church The latter after patiently enduring the talk of the youth for some time put to him this question Why are you not a CatholicBecause he answered 101 despise Catholicity with all its practices Yes faith and so does the devil was the Irishmans ready retort The young man had no more to say IN THE SELECTION OP A WIFE The oldtime Puritans had these quaint rules for the selection ofa wife A good wife should be like three things which three things she should not be like She should be like a snail to keep within her house but should not be like a snail to carry all she has on her back She should be like an echo to answer when she is called but she should not be like an echo always to have the last word She should be like a town clock always keeping time with regularity but she should not be like a town clock speaking so loud as to be heard over all the town TUB CARE OP SILVER Do not allow any substance containing rubber to come in contact with silver articles Sulphur is used in the manufacture of rubber and when
