which is creating such a revolution in Ireland there was none so deeply loved so tenderly cherished and respected as Father OGrowney Eugene OGrow ney was born in Ballyfollon Athboy County Meath in 1863 and was only thirtysix years old when he died on October 18 1899 in the Sisters Hospital at Los Angeles Cal Father OGrow neys parents did not speak Irish and he often related that he did not know there was an Irish language until he entered St Finians the diocesan seminary at Navan County Meath When he discovered there was a national language he resolved in the first place to make him self acquainted with it and in the next to do all in his power to restore it to its proper place in Ireland as the language of the country- In the fall of 1882 young OGrowuey entered Maynooth College where he studied for six years spending all his leisure lime in studying Irish and Irish history and antiquities lIe had the ad vantage here of meeting Irishspeaking students and commenced systematically to collect a vocabulary as well as to per feet himself in Irish conversation He was ordained in 1889 and was appointed a curate in the parish of Ballinacarrigy County Westmeath In 1890 his reputa thouI as a Gaelic scholar had spread abroad and he was made coeditor and treasurer of the Gaelic Journal which I had been started by the Gaelic Union a few years before In 1894 owing to the z great tax his labors imposed on him his health gave way and he left Ireland in the hope of recovering his health or at least prolonging bis life In the mild cli mate of Arizona lie was accorded a splendid reception in New York by the Gaelic and PhlloCeltic societies of that city His life was undoubtedly pro longed but the dread disease of consumption had got its hold and his death was only a matter of time He never relaxed his labors however and only a few days before hIss death he was in corres pondence with The Gael with the view ofissuing a revised edition of his Simple Lessens in Irish iIa America though for a tong time- he felt tbatthe hand of death was upon him he Beyer lost his cheerfulness He often sent a warning that the end might t cone at any time but he said this as calmly as though he were writing of some ordinary event and he went on to I diacuse the interest of what was dearest to hla ertin this world our native tongue asa man might do who was absolutely heedless of death or danger Ills efforts never slackened even when hU 5if hung by ft thread He was cOn Untly writing to IrianAmerican papers and the theme was always the same lila object being to stir up interest in the truffle fortthe national tongue Up to the JUt he kept upa constant corres pondence withlii comrades in arms on both side of the Atlantic His death was an irreparable lou to the Gaelic movement and to Ireland because never iadshe a tnoyajtvottd I patriotic sou II js life however was n lesson in lofty patriotism uuflagglng zeal tireless energy and unfaltering hope which can not fail to be a model for all Irishmen and particularly for those who were his coworkers in the cause He accom pUshed more in a short life of thirtysix years than it is allotted to most of us to ever achieve May his soul rest inpeace and may his memory be cherished as long as the Gaelic tongue shall last The items of expense incidental to the removal will include the opening of the grave in Los Angeles an airtight metal lic coffin with outer oak casket under takers expenses fare to New York for the body and two or more pallbearers cost of reception in New York with high mass fare to Dublin or Cork with expenses of pallbearers in all about 1KX or 1500 It is expected the Gaelic League in Dublin will take charge of the remains and arrange for the obsequies in Ireland It is hoped that Father Yorke of San Francisco will accompany the body to New York as one of the pall bearers and perhaps continue on to Ireland t6 preach the funeral sermon None more eloquent than he can be foundIt certainly is not too much to hope that Gaels the world over will help in this meritorious and patriotic work and show their high appreciation of the incal culable service rendered to Irish nationality through the wonderfulstimulus infused by Father OGrowney into the movement for a revival of our Irish lan guage and literature Let our readers show their appreciation by promptly con tributing whatever sum they can best afford All contributions will be ac knowledged in the Gael and Kentucky Irish American INSPIRING TO CATHOLICS Second Anniversary Celebration by St Anthonys Society There are few scenes more edifying in this busy life than that of a large number of devout and earnest Catholic men ap proaching the altar and receiving the sac rament of holy communion such as was witnessed last Sunday morning at Holy Name church Fourth and 0 streets when over one hundred members of St An thonys Society thus inaugurated the cel ebratlon of their second anniversary- St Anthonys Society organized only

Louisville t fl Erection of Several Packing- Houses Contemplated for Next Year Daily Receiving Consignments From Loading Stock Raisers ALSO HAVE FIRST CLASS HOTEL During the past year many new enter prises have located in this city but the one of greatest importance and magni tude is located at South Louisville covering an area of about thirty acres Last spring the Central Stock Yards Company was organized through the efforts of a number of our local live stock dealers prominent among them being the Messrs Charles and Joseph Byrne When the company was incorporated plans were drawn for the finest live stock yards in the world and under the supervision of Joe Byrne the work was pushed to rapid completionS our citizens have any idea of their immensity They have a daily capacity of nearly 40000 head of cattle sheep and hogs Everything connected with them is modern and complete The Exchange building is of brick and stone and is a handsome structure Here the leading commission firms have cnmodious offices among the number being Martin Byrne Co W R Crawford Co Gaines Thomas Co Stewart Sanders Miller Co Wheeler Gib son J L Hart Co J W McCamp bell and next week Jeffries Smith the largest sheep dealers in the South west and a number of others will also become identified with these yards The yards are paved throughout with vitrified brick and the excellent sewer age system introduced keeps them in a perfectly clean and healthy condition They can be reached over all roads entering Louisville which will do away with driving live stock through the treetsMenoifrom Wn9io jl 9 land and all parts of the United States pronounce them the finest they ever visited In the Exchange Building are located branches of the Western Union Postal and Cable Telegraph Companies- For the accommodation of patrons and the general public there is a newly fur nished and completely equipped hotel conducted hy Eugene McShane The rooms are large and airy and have all modern conveniences and under Mr McShanes management the Central Stock Yards Hotel will certainly grow in popularity and become the headquarters For shippers antI stock raisers when they visit Louisville The Central Stock Yards Company have a magnificent plant thoroughly equipped in the most modern style and it is the purpose of the company to make it the largest and best market in the entire Southwest if not the largest in the United States Louisville being the metropolis of the greatest stock State in the Union is justly entitled to this The largest stock shippers and raisers in Kentucky are in thorough accord with the Central Stock Yard Company arid are patronizing the yards liberally Stock raisers and shippers from other States are doing the same feeling an interest in the Louisville market of the Central Stock Yards Company The trouble given this great enterprise by the Louisville Nashville Railroad Company is to be sincerely regretted notwithstanding the liberal view given by all connected with the yarks During the past couple of months the Louisville Si Nashville Railroad Company has given the Central Stock Yards consIderale un necessary trouble insofar as that the shippers along that line have been kept in a state of confusion but 39 they are all friends of the new yards and have been persistent in their efforts to patron ize their choice the result is that the Central Stock Yards are now daily receiving the largest as well as the most val uable consignments from important ship ping points It is a source of great satisfaction not only to the individual stockholders of the company who have large sums of enterprisebutas well as prospective investors in our State to know that thellaws of our noble Commonwealth are not pnly goodand throw protection around the investors but are enforced by our intelligent and capable judiciary That Kentucky is the greatest State in the Union and Louisville the greatest city in the Southwest with a better and more substantial future before it than I any other is the belief of all connected with the Central Stock Yards Company I and in conclusive proof of this maybe cited the fact of the breaking up of former associations and the adoption of this city as their home for all time to come by a number of its inot interested prompter II Another matter bmoeettiaii ordina- ry1mpncind worthy of speciall wejirj pseking11 coming year in

Chapel SHELTERED BY BAPTIST MINISTER I Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish American SAN ANDRES ISLAND COIUMIIIA SOUTH AMBRICA Nov 22It is quite a while since my last communication dated from San Jose Costa Rica Before I now give a report of my trip to the island from Limon I wish to add a few more words about that great star on the Epis copal firmament the Tate Bishop Thiel of San Jose That he was a saintly Bishop your readers will agree with me from what I have already written about him That he had no need of being reminded by the decrees of the late Council of the LatinAmerican Bishops he showed more than once The rector of the seminary told me that many A time when a wrong doing priest was reported to him the Bishop would repair to the Cathedral at midnight lock the door and spendan hour before the tabernacle giving unto himself the discipline in expiation for the priests sins also on several occa sions when a priest would refuse to go to a poor or hard mission under the pretext of not getting his support or on account of the wickedness of the place he left his Episcopal palace and for months took charge of the place himself so that his example would finally put the priest to shame These few items I think worth mention l1g about this great Bishop of Central America 0 that the good Lord might send many of this kind of pastors into his church of AmericaNorth Central and South What a blessing it would be I just had finished my weeks retreat 3 4e lJ pAunll11ertiJlwhendtelegram reached me from Limon that a small sailing boat bad arrived front San Andres and though there were still sonic cases of yellow fever in the port the Con sul gave me a passport The trip should with favorable weather have been made in three or four days but the wind was constantly against us and for two weeks we were thrown around on the Carib bean sea One night we were overcome by a dreadful thunderstorm and our little boat was tossed like a nutshell All in all we were about 700 miles out of the right course I nearly gave up hope ever to see land again Still I trusted in the Blessed Virgin Mary Star of the Sea ad good St Anthony whose relic I hadwith me The great trouble was that I became weaker every day When I came to Kentucky three years ago I was a strong and stout man weighing 215 pounds When I left my health was broken down my weight having been reduced to 1G5 pounds The cause of this was time hard work I done at St Augus tines colored church and at the Camp bellsvlllei missions Such was the case with me aiM hence I nearly collapsed from the hardships of the two weeks voyage The only food I had was the milk of the cocoanut and as I had no solid food whatever during all that time I was almost dead when we landed They brought me to the house of an old Baptist who offered me a cot under the staircase There I was a stranger on a lonely island There was about a dozen Spanish Catholic families in the island They all knew that a priest had landed but none of them came near me After awhile the natives commenced to call and finally J succeeded in hiring a man a Creole to attend me in my sickness The only physician in the island an American was sick himself and at the point of death so I had to be my own doctor the best way I could The natives ld me that the tropical fever had got a bad hold of me I looked up Father Keipps book My Water Cure and followed it the best way I could The old Baptist gave me a room so as to he a little more corn fortable This house is close to the sea shore and from my cot I could look out on the big evermoving ocean and make my meditations Daily I offered my sufferings in expiation for my past trans gressions asking the good Lord to be merciful to me and if Ube his holy will to restore me to health again so I might work for the conversion of the natives of these islands All Souls day came along when for the first time since my priest hood I could have read three masses a privilege tile priests in all Latin America enjoy but as it was I could not even read one Thus the time passed on It seemed as if I got weaker and weaker for I was not able to walk through the room and all I could do was to suffer in patience Finally the fever seemed to leave me gradually but great weakness remained That I could get no refreshing fruit the oranges not being ripe till Christmas was also another diMdvaritage NowIaui picking up slowly and hope soon to be able to start my work by gathering the children and instructthong and through them teach the grownup u U o people But the first thing I need is a chapelwhich I intend to dedicate to St Anthony and now I appeal to the charitable readers of the Kentucky Irish American Surely many of them whom God has blessed with the goods of this world would not miss fJ or 10 given in charity for this St Anthonys chapel in this lonely island and who of the readers could not afford to give at least 111 And thus I might soon be enabled to put up a little chapel with a room attached to it as my residence There are many gen erous and welltodo Catholics in Louisville that I trust will not turn a deaf ear to this my appeal Any gift may be depositedwith the editor of this paper I am sure that Mr higgins wIlt do me this favor and from time to time publish an account of the donations received All I can promise in return is a remembrance of all the benefactors in my daily mass and special prayers which after the chapel will be finished will be recited in honor of St Anthony on Tuesdays in the same manner as prevailed at St An thonys church in Louisville three years ago Now I will come to a close fofthls time May St Anthony with the sweet Infant Jesus on his arm touch many a heart toward an act of charity for my poor and lonely missions REV AIBKRT STROKIIKIU In compliance with the request of the Rev Albert Stroebele the Kentucky Irish American will receive and forward to him any moneys that his Kentucky friends may contribute to assist him in his effort to erect a chapel Every person contributing will receive receipt therefor and their names and amounts willeach week appear in these columns U RECEIVES CARDINALS The Holy Father Urges Union of All Christian Churches Rome dispatches state that the Pope on Monday received the Cardinals who offered him their Christmas greetings The Pontiff made a lengthy address in In which he condemned what he characterized as the liberty of thought in dulged in at the present time lie sharply criticised socialism agitation for divorce and hostility between different sections of the church and urged a union of the Christian churches The church the Pope said in the course of his re narks is now confronted by difficulties similar to those of earlier times There were attempts everywhere to make the rI1giousof vexatious proscriptions and laws were being passed in open defiance of Gods eternal laws The Pontiff said the only means of successfully combating social ism was for Catholics to hearken and obey the iinstructions of the church The Pall Mall Gazette published the following dispatch from Rome Monday The Vatican is becoming decidedly more hopeful that the United States will yield to the Popes great desire and appoint a diplomatic representative to the Vatican So anxious is the Pope for the success of his project that he would be satisfied at present with a semiofficial representa tive in the hope that he would be event ually turned into a Minister or Ambassa dor It seems that Washington is not unwilling to discuss the matter and the Vatican has intimated in return itt desire to meet American wishes in Cuba and the Philippines and possibly create another Cardinal in the United States The Pope is somewhat opposed to the latter step while Cardinal Gibbons lives but he may compromise the matter by creating Archbishop Ireland or Archbishop Corri- gan Cardinal of the Curia entailing liv ing in Rome BABY SHOW Large Number Entered In Trinity Councils Big Event

twentyseven who contributed 48006 from 500 toioocx each twentyfive are Irish and doubtless the same ratio will holt good for the remainder of the list This is a gratifying evidence of the thrift of

the roof being orts from the floor He recommended that the house should cease to be occupied as fit for human habitation it appears from statements made that Mines is 107 years of age has been in

Judge Shine has forfeited that honor The annual report of State Secretary Enright shows a falling off of 1157 iin New York State during the past year which he attributes to several causes the principal one being the apathy of sonic members who are elected to officewho are officers in title onlyand do not at tend to their duties and allow the mem bership to decrease for the want of show ing a thorough Irish spirit and performing the duties of the office to which they were elected Among the Hibernians elected mem bers of the Boston Common Council at the election was Daniel McDonald of

it applies directly to the condition existing in the three Falls Cities In their eagerness to pro mote the welfare of their own divisions our brothers must not overlook the necessity of organizing the Ladies Aux iliary As an adjunct to the order it is productive of inestimable good and its encourgagement should not be neglected IB many localities where the mens order lscomparativelystronl no organization of women exists simply because the brothers do not exert themselves in that direction AH interesting letter from Cleveland admits this fact but also states that efforts are about to be

SilverEgg always discolors silver as the sulphur forms a combination with the silver conse quently the silver must be scoured if wanted perfectly bright However it may be rubbed with salt which will remove the black Bone or pearl spoons are best for eggs and this removes the necessity of constant scouring How to Keep FoodTHot When necessary to keep a meal hot for a belated cower do not put the

shows stitched bands of panne of the same color a band of embroidery aroutid the chemisette vest of lace and puffed under sleeves of lace drawn in by narrow bands of the I panneVelvet dotted with white is combined very handsomely with cloth forming the circular flounce cut in a waved line at at the top where it meets cloth upper skirt and the joining is covered by a stitched band of the cloth or of plain velvet The lace vest shows very narrowly in almost all cases where there is any vest at all Some of the velvet blouse waists fasten down one side below a very nar row round yoke of lace which is not much more than an extension of the col larbandThe gowns even though they must be plain in one sense of the word are varied more then it would seem pos sible by the nee of bands and tucks and here is one example in dark blue with cordwide tucks as the only trimming except some handsome enamelled but tonsBlack lace over white mousseliue forms one pretty bodice edged around the cream lace yoke and fronts with an em broidery of silk jet and silver spangles Black velvet forms the straps over the shoulders Tucked white satin crepe de chine with ecru lace chiffon vest and frills forms still another pretty bodice Fur toques are worn in a large size One of the prettiest is made of chinchilla with a fur crown and brim which is something of the Marquise shape and pale blue panne is carelessly twisted around the low crown fastening over on the brim where it dents in at the sides with a handsome diamond shaped rhine stone pIn- Certainly the hats are growing more elaborate all the time as regards the rich ness of materials Pussy hats which show too much variety in the kinds of trimming are entirely out of it this tea son The whole style of the hat depends on the grace of its outline the particular arrangement of the soft materials of which it is made A small yoke extending down one aide of the front in a narrow band where the bodice opens is of the dotted velvet also the collar baud and cuffs and the edges of the collar and bodice are finished with the stitched band This is a useful model for renovating an old gown pro viding you cast match the color of your gown in
