the paper continue to prosper and succeed beyond the dearest hopes of Its editor Such the greeting from the Irish in grandestcountryand Kentucky the acknowledged queen of the States and the Bluegrass region the fairest portion of Kentncky so Shelby county beyond any doubt is the best sec ticfa of that far famed region It is a matter of record and hence no exaggeration to say that very much of the material prosperity of our count is in large measure due to the brain and mtrawn of the very earliest settlers of this section in whose veins flowed the pure and rich blood of Ireland Not of th pioneers however do I wish to write as of those who came in a later generation eandwho in truth may be called exiles of Erin Many of them today are living in our midst and their children respected and honored citizens are holding their own in the ranks of those who have at heart the advancement of our town and our county The Irish who settled here inure than fifty years ago felt the great need from yeir to year ofa church where they might her mass and have the sacraments administered to them and to their children True to the promptings their Irish faith they set to work and on October 2 I860 the present church was dedi cated to the service of God by the after e wanlgreatArchbishopof Baltimore Dr Spalding wbo preached anetoqiwBt ser MOH OB the occasion With the opening of the new church began

venerable Father Lawler who at that time was the zealous Bud bardworking pastor not only of this county but whose ministrations brought comfort and encouragement to the Catho lics of many neighboring counties Soon a large and flourishing parish existed in Shelbyville and their history like that of their own beloved Ireland is made up ofsmiles and tears the smilesalways brighter and sweeter because bf the pre vious tears With the increase of population addi tionswere from time to time made to the church until today under the care of Rev J J Fitzgerald It is as comfortable and convenient in its appointments as it is imposing in appearance among the many churches in Sbelbyville Here it may be of interest to give the names of the Irish priests who lived and labored in this community After Father Lawler came Rev D J Crane who was succeeded by Rev J P Ryan the pans ent Right Reverend Bishop of AlUn III He was followed by the eloquent D J ODonovan who died a few years ago in Boston Mass

and of some who are still doing the work of useful citizens among us as samples of the sort of jpeople Irish Americans have shown themjelves to be In the palmy days of travelrand traffic on our Western rivers no oWpers or cap thins of steamboats were better known than Capt Thomas C And Capt John Coleman They were bownin Cork county Ireland where then lather who died when they were quite sung

Coleman in 1876 They were both handsome courtly gentlemen and Capt John Coleman was especially noted as a witty conversation alist and excellent story teller The de scendants of these pioneer business men have continued to hold the best social and business standing In this connection though out of our order of arrangement it is convenient to speak of the record Capt Thomas C Coleman still in the enjoyment of t11 green old age and living on his handscm place some miles out on the Louisville Nashville main line from which he visits the city nearly every day though for some years retired from business H was the oldest son of the first T C Coleman and succeeded his father in the rolling mill Be became famous among steamboat captains as the only man whoever stole a President When Gen Tay for

General learning the other boat would not be up till late in the afternoon boarded the Satdiaj for Vicksburg aiid the chagrin of the committee was great when they came up and found him gone It is

six months hold and he grew up under the cure of a mother and one of the most beautiful traits in his character was his unremitting devotion to her up to her death in 1858 As he grew up he was appren ticed to the plastering trade under his stepfather James Campbell a skillful mechanic After working for some time as a journeyman in Ireland he went to England where he succeeded well Ac cotnpaniedji bya brother and sister he came tojthls country in 184J settling in Cincinnati He became known in Louis ville by work on the Cathedral and was induced to remove here He made a home for his parents and the younger children in England and did the same in Cincin nail and here Afters few years work at his trade be begagjihe manufacture of terre cotta in which he was very suc cessful It was on entirely new industry in Louisville In 1870 he established an other new industry themanufacture of sewer pipe in which he has beeu equally successful Later he added to his indus tries the manufacture of vitrified brick for paving purposes He has been a pioneer in his line of business has built one of the most important trades uPI which has brought much money to city and furnished means of livelihood

President orthe Board of Aldermen In all relations of life he has been one of our best and most useful citizens and no man is held in higher esteem SURPRISES POLITICIANS The surprise of the campaign now be- Ing waged throughout the city is the un expected strength developed by Roger McGrath candidate for City Auditor He has made thus far an earnest but clean canvass and each day adds large num bens to his forces This contest while surprising the politicians is now ono of the hottest of the campaign Roger Mc woakerein the Democratic ranks and his nom ination and election would be a fitting recognition of his services It is also gratifying to note that many of our best GermanAmericans will vote for him in the primary His uniform courtesy and experience are guarantee that be would make an excellent lone who would not discriminate between those who have dealings with the city SACRED HEART ACADEMY The Sacred Heart Academy held its closing exercises at St Martins Hall Shelby and Gray streets Tuesday morn Ling June 25 before a magnificent audi ence nThe very interesting programme con sisting of classical selections ia music and recitations was rendered in a manner which reflects great credit upon them stitution with a precision and elegance thentang exacting critic As the Sacred Heart lemyisprac- tic81tthe oaly boardingschool lathe city of Louisville thesloeingeserefses as such certainly stand as a oudusive proof of the derided advantages derived from attending an Institution which affords the children not only literary eel turn but really to them a home where tlte constant influence of devoted teach era ptnmatw as we may My the chil r I drens very nature What suggested this thought forcibly to all present was the German part of the programmea delightful comhiedietta rendered In Ger man with admirable correctness This distinctive feature of the Sacred Heart Academy demonstrates beyond a doubt the greater amount of attention and culture children can only receive at a board ing school Considering that an exhibition how ever reveals rather inadequately the achievments of an institution and yet is a rather unfailing criterion thereof the Sacred Heart Academy may justly feel proud of the high standard of culture to which this entertainment has given it an unquestionable right In the English section of elocution Miss Editha Ritter distinguished herself litt the character of Zenobla the captive queen The true impersonation of this character is indeed a most difficult task and therefore most exacting in its de mands upon the interpreter portraying as it does the unfortunate Queen of Pal myra conquered by the Roman Emperor Aurelius and detained by him in cap tivity The remembrance of her glorious pastw so full of ambition of her disastrous defeat brought about by treachery and of the calamities wnich befell her beloved nation all this calls forth the most thrill lug emotions and the successive expres sions of all the various passions of the human heart in all their innumerable shadings Indeed a task arduous for an artist yet Miss Editha Ritter portrayed this difficult character with all its intricacies to perfection The illusion was complete the rendition being so perfect in every detail that instead of an imitation it appeared as a reality Miss Ritters recitation with most accurate emphasis and inflections her facial ex pression her every gesture her picturing of every shade of emotion her graceful carriage all being part of Queen Zeno bin copied from life And the copy was a masterpiece indeed the effect of re markable talent combined with excellent work She was therefore justly awarded the highest distinction for proficiency in elocution and upon this brilliant success we most heartily congratulate the young artist LEFT THEIR MARK HERE The IrishAmericans of today are no less prominent and influential in the affairs pftbe city than the good men who preceded them To say

prides itself not upon how cheap it can supply whisky but upon the quality of the goods it offers We have heard it said that once tbe brands of N M Url Co secure a footing Ina community it is almost impos sible to displace them Speaking of his methods of business to the writer sometime ago Mr Url said We are careful in the selection of our customers lose very few accounts secure a reasonable price for Ourgoods and in consequence we can afford to furnish the best the market affords We belieye that a good whisky makes friends for ahouse and that an Interior whiskey drives away trade These

should be well matured soft not too high in proof and of great delicacy of flavor In putting up our blends we aim to produce a whisky that will leave only the most pleasant and satisfying effects upon tbe nostrils and the palate A whisky may please the taste as surely as a fine port sherry or Madeira and the retailer who does not try to obtain such an article is overlooking the great secret to success The ordinary whisky offends the taste and we think the art of blending must be consulted before a satis factory result can be obtained The retail liquor dealer like all other mer chantr can surely find success if he will study to please and whatever it costs avoid offense In their brands of Parker Rye and Mumms Extra Rye N M Uri Co claim to produce perfect whiskies in flavor bouquet and

Kentucky Irish American We are happy to say that the IrishAmerican people of Kentucky without regard to political feeling or religious belief are giving this paper their support and every day we feel we are growing in strength 1 At first it was uphill business and we often felt that we must give up the fight but friends urged us to keep on and the result is that the Kentucky Irish American is now on its feet and we hope will grow and yield an influence long after I the present editor and proprietor has joined the silent majority The paper speaks for itself We have been commended on all sides of late by our subscribers for its handsome typographical appear ance the excellence of its local and literary departments as well as for the fine quality of material on which the paper jSiprinted It

of the Alum nae Association took place at the Acad emy near Sprigfield last Wednesday The members assembled from all parts of the country to be present at this I annual meeting which has grown to be a happy and interesting event for those who attend Mrs E W MacDonald of this city is President and Miss Lillie Bannon also of this city is Secretary of the association The day was a beauti ful one and the kind Sisters in charge of the institution from the Mother Superior down did their utmost to make the visitors comfortable The programme was a delightful one which had been prepared The opening address was delivered by Mrs John P Cassllly of Louisville It was a well worded address and the grace and case with which it was spoken called forth much applause She spoke of the pleas ures it gave to the members to meet again after in many cases years apart of the practical value such meetings possessed that those who were mothers could now recall the good done by the Sisters in the past and see the effect it had on their lives It was not the aim of any of the alumnae she said to become a new woman but it was the just desire of all to become the aides of the Sisters in their work- Instrumentals and vocal selections were rendered by different members aud an elaborate banquet was spread at the close This was presided over by Mrs E W MacDonald and she acquitted herself admirably in the trying position Mrs Dr J C Hood Mrs Edward OConnor and others were called upon to respond to toasts and they all did so with mach credit REALLY PLEASANT AFFAIR Last Monday at Cherokee Park oc

was a picture of contentment and a living proof of the joys ofa good conscience if a boy of seven can be said to be burdened with such a thing as a conscience The fact that Thomas hair was of a sunburned hue that his face and hands were pain fully dirty and that his sturdy little legs showedsigns of a recent ride in a coal cart seemed in no wise to affect his appetite Thomas had two weaknesses one for bread and molasses the other for sticking chewinggum in other boys hair That he yielded to each was evi dent from his present occupation and the peculiarlooking bald spots on the heads of several boys playing in the alley There was a sticky spot on either side of his mouth where the projecting points of the crescent bites touched his cheeks After each bite he held the slice of bread some distance frcm him eyeing it in a contemplative way as if to ascertain whether it was sufferingany diminution in size He bit off all the uneven places with a inethematical pre cision born of long practice and having fashioned the piece of bread to suit his artistic eye he again bit into the center and the mathematical process continued Thomas was enjoying his little heart to its full extent the ecstatic look on his face vas proof positive of that Hisj ttention was distracted several times Once it was a horsefly that alighted on his shin and refused to move until the other foot was rubbed vigorously up and down it Then it was the sudden appearance hi the alley of a hokypoky man ringing a bell and pushing his little handcart before him The sight of the wet brown cloth being removed from the rusty fail the cover of the can lifted off and the long handled spoon being plunged into the mysterious depths to be removed a second later laden with golden icecream had a ter rible fascination for Thomas In an instant the battle between hokypoky and bread and molasses was on Short was the strife and sharp bread and molasses aided by habit finally winning the day Thomas was not alone in his gastro nomic rapture Mary Josephine his sis ter and the twins John Joseph and William Henry were also in evidence each with a slice of bread proportionate to age and appetite Mary Josephine was socalled in honor of a certain Sister of Mercy of the same name who was one of the kindest and gentlest of the Sisters who visit the sick in the alley Her kindness and good works were rewarded by having half the girls in the alley named after her McNamee Sr previous to his un timely takingoff byII falling derrick had endeavored to give his children a respectable bringing up jt He was as sisted in the bringing up process by Mary Ann his wife a short fat little woman who was now doing her best to follow out the ideas of her departed spouse She found it a hard task however to keep her four fed clothed and respect able Money was scarce and the washing she did during the week were scarcely numerous enough to keep the wolf from the door Widows were so many and washings so few that had it not bea for McNameea thoughtful MM in having himself iturnred Mary Ann and her little ones would have gone hungry D i the same policy will characterize his administration if elected County Clerk Mr Semonin is an affable gentleman and his uniform courtesy to old and young rich and poorvhas won for him an army of friends whohope to see hint elected County CJerk Tin November Every worthy charity rind public enter prise have had his earnest support none ever appealing to him in vain For uuumum uuuumu and cold many times Mary Josephine was u good girl and was a great help to her mother She was one of the brightest girls in the Sisters school and had received several premiums for excellence in catechism The twins exept for their unwonted and unnatural desire to quarrel gave the widow little trouble Thomas was the thorn in her side In vain did she try to keep him clean Day after day he was sent to school in a clean waist and an immacu late bow tie which almost covered his chest only to return at night the waist torn and scarcely recognizable the bow lie a soiled and shapeless rag Many were the complaints she was forced to hear of him the windows he broke the fights he had the trouble he gave the Sisters He was even caught stealing green apples front Father Kellys garden Church nor State had any terror for him At each successive misdeed the widows heart failed her Deep down in her soul she had the hope that conies to every Catholic mother that she might one day see Thomas a priest of God might hear his voice uttering the sacred words of the mass and might receive from his hands the Bread of Life In times when Thomas had been unusually good this picture would come before her only to be destroyed by some fresh complaint She did not know what was to become of him priest or man if God did not change his heart Today had brought the climax Thomas was preparing to make his first holy com munion and to get him to study his cate chism was labor untold Excuses were on his tongues epd His book was lost his eyes were sore and he didnt know where the lesson was This very morning she had sent him to instructions under the care of Mary Josephine She was hoping for the best when Mary Josephine burst into the kitchen where she was ironing with the awful news Thomas had disgraced the family and blasted forever Mary Josephines theological reputation I He had been asked three questions and had not only failed but given vent to rank heresy in addi tionWhat were the questions asked the mother huskily Now Sister Euphrasla asked him who the visible head of the church was an he said Father Kelly was Au she asked him who was the third person of the Blessed Trinity an he said the Blessed Virgin was There was a long pause Mary Josephine certainly understood dramatic effectWell an the third one said the widow Who was the only person that ever came into the world without the stain of original sin recited Mary Josephine Shure be knew that anyway What did he say ilie said George Washington Oh the heretic the infidel the widow criedwait till I lay hands on him The heretic was present at dinner but received no sign of recognition from his mother Mary Josephine made gestures across the table suggestive of the judg went to be visited upon him later Thomas did not seem greatly affected how ever with remorse of conscience and appeared At lira accustomed hour for the uual slice of bread and molaosen and received it TfiW time he seemed to feel his mothers rupee sad stood in the u ij I those reasons many influential young men have gone earnestly to work for him He is a Democrat of the Jeffersonian school and deserves recognition trout his party During the years gone by he has exhibited warm friendship for your I IrishAmericans several being appointed to office by him I He has conducted a clean campaign and feels confident of success uu uu kitchen doorway watching her at the ironing board seeking to find some sign ofrelenting Receiving no en courage went he finally withdrew to the front off the house It went to the widows heart to treat him so but it was time for stringent suffoIfor a long days work The last piece was on the board a white waist that Thomas was to wear to mass in the morning She looked sad and tired as she bent ove her iron It had indeed beep a long and troublesome day A large drop of per spiration formed on her forehead and rolling slowly down her nose dropper softly on the clean collar of the waist making a large damp spot With at exclamation of impatience she put the flatiron back on the stove and thei walked to the front door for a breath of air and to see a sight that almost mad her weep The twins having eaten their respec tive slices of bread were now engaged in trying to pull each others hair out at the roots and screaming alternately Mar Josephine her pride had stolen her mothers best black bonnet from the closet and was now walking up and down the street her dress uplifted in a most distinguished way to the grea admiration and envy of the surrounding children Before the widoiacould waste her emotions at the sight of her beloved bonnet in such philistine hands her eye was distracted to Thomas who was engaged in conversation with a strange boy about his own age and size The newcomer had a peaked pole face very different as she noticed with pardonable pride from the healthy if dirty counte nance of her own sou He was gazing hungrily at a piece of bread which Thomaa held in his hand and which was Uo be eaten when the conversation was done blots yer name asked Thomas Jimmie was the reply Wherd you live Nowheres Wot aint yo got no home nur nuthin Nope Aint you got lei soto catechism Catechism NawfSayj persisted Thomas aint you got no mother c Shure said Jimrtiie but she gets drunk an then I aiuiLgott no home The widow muttered God help ye ye poor child An dont you never get no breadan mlasses when ver hungry inquired Thomas after a pause Jitnmie hung hiII head and said nothing Here was a puzzle for Thouias A boy who didni have to go to catechism was certainly to be envied but a boy who didnt gett bread and molasses front his mothei when he was hungry was certainly to b pitied Perhaps he was hungry nowe9I He turned his head to see if he observed No one was In sight H never dreamed of his mother He slowly stretched out the piece of bread until iit was within reach of the other and tber turned away Jimmie looked at the bread as if to refuse it but the temptation was too strong He took it with a mut tered thanks and scampered down the street Thomas looking after him heard a step behind him and turned tc find his mothers gaze full on him li hung bb head guiltily for a moment and then raised it defiantly Nell he whispered he wuz
