Far Y Yr r k T KENTUCKY IRISH AMERWAN-r N t A VOLUME VIIINO 4 rl LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JANUARY 25 1902 = PRICE FIVE CENTS DOING GOOD WORK r State President Koichort KeepsI the Catholic Knights Hustling Reports From All Branches Indicative of Favorable Progress Central Committee Continues Old Officers For Anotfier Year DISABILITY POND QUESTION SETTLED State President Michael Reichert con tinued to keep the Kentucky branches of the Catholic Knights of America hus tling for new members and the annual reports now being received show that his efforts have been productive of the most gratifying results Thus far not a report has been received but what shows gains in both membership and finances Presi dent Reichert is certainly doing great work and there is a growing feeling that he should be reelected by a unanimous vote at the next State convention which will meet at Frankfort the coming Sept emberThe Central Committee of this city is also doing good work among the branches of the Pails Cities the reports of all being very favorable At the last meeting there was an unusually large attendance of representatives from the branches of LouisvilleNew Albany and Jefferson ville Among the more important questions discussed was the proposed disability fund for members who because of sick ness or lack employment are unable to meet their monthly assessments This is a delicate problem and must be given careful consideration but there is no doubt but that those who have given this subject their best thought for months past will effect a solution that will meet with unanimous and hearty approval The champions of this movement show real Catholic and brotherly spirit one which should place the Catholic Knights ar ahead of all other fraternal organiza ions At the regular moathlymeetinglield= at St Marys Hall the officers who served so efficiently during the past year were elected for another term as follows President Hatry A Veeneman VicePreslentoe P McGinn Secretary John J Score TreasurerEdwarJ Rapp SergeantatArms Thomas Sheehan Trustees Joseph Habbuch Jonathan Tbickstun and Edward Hill The Kentucky Irish American came in for its share of praise from the officers and was recommended to all members of the great organization by Presidents Reichert and Veeneman who thanked the paper and its publisher for the many courtesies and generous space given all branches of the Catholic Knights All members as weltas delegates who can attend are urged to be present at the next meeting of the Central Committee St Marys Hall on Friday night February 14 Many new resolutions of more than ordinary interest will then be presented also rules to govern the disability fund which now aggregates a handsome sum Those who are advocating a union entertainment after Lent are expected to bring the matter forward for discussion and as the Central Committee is com posed of able and representative men the proceedings should be of unusual interest to members of the order at large OTHER CORNER Practical Jokes Under Cathe dral Eaves In American Metropolis Few public characters in New York City seem to enjoy popular confidence as much as Archbishop Corrigan does People of every creed and political persua sion call at his house for guidance and comfort when in trouble Many of them are strangers and a large number are cranks some of them so plausible and apparently sane that they deceive even the lynxeyed John the butler of the Archbishop One of these managed tq reach the Archbishops presence some time ago and announced that he was Lucifer in person and that he had called to protest against the manner in which his name was being maligned every Sun day in the Cathedral The Archbishop at once informed his visitor that this was a parish affair and so did not concern him and that the caller had better go to the house on the other corner of the block and KC the rector of the Cathedral Father Lavelle This suggestion was prompted not Only by the reflection that the reverend father is not only a power fully built man himself but has living with him under the same roof a number of1 stalwart curates The energies of the latter aK rather Lavelle were severely taxed in ejecting Lucifer few minutes later at the rectory The other day a visitor came to the rectory and on being ushered into the presence of Father Lavelle gravely in formed the latter that he was St Peter and That he bad called upon himto take dinner with him Father Lavelle who happened to be alone in the house at the L y time saw an opportunity of getting even with his diocesan Accordingly he in formed St Peter that he had evidently mistaken the house that he was merely a poor parish priest unworthy of so great an honor as the entertaining of an apostle and suggested that the Archbishop at the other corner was better qualified to accord him a welcome in keeping with his status in the church adding that he kept a much better table than that maintained the rectory St Peter when he afterward called on the Archbishop showed himself quite as ob streperous as Lucifer at the rectory a few weeks earlier and it required the united efforts of the butler a bluecoat and of the Archbishops athletic chaplain Father Connolly to get rid of the pseudo apostle Since then there has been a sort of treaty between the rectory and the Archepiscopal residence according to which each undertakes to deal with its own crank callers without attempt ing to get rid of them by sending them toUto the other corne- rCATHOLIC FEDERATION Movement Looking Toward a Formation of a State- Organization Notices were sent out last week calling for a meeting of the delegates constitut ing the Catholic Union at Satolli Hall next Tuesday night January 28 It is expected that at that time the constitu tion adopted at the late Cincinnati con vention will have arrived and preliminary steps may be taken toward the formation of a State Federation The Catholic socities of Ohio will hold a State convention at Columbus on Sun day January 26 and as the movement has the approval of Archbishop Elder and the Bishops of the State a large at tendance is anticipated Efforts will be made to organize upon lines that will meet the requirements of all States and give uniformity to the movement Dr J W Fowler who so ably repre mated the societies of Louisville at the national convention has received a very complimentary letter from National Secretary Anthony Matre and an invitation to be present at the gathering at Colum bus Secretary Matre also gave assurance of his assistance in Covington and New port when Kentucky Catholics were ready for State Federation This meeting of the local body will have much to do with the progress of the movement in Kentucky and therefore it is essential that all authorized delegates should assemble at Satolli Hall on jan- uary 28 President McDermott and Secretary Cooney will doubtless have much information of an iieresting nature to impart SACRED HEART CHURCH Amount Paid Off Gives Evi dence of CarefuLFI- nanclorlng The reading by Father Walsh of the annual report for the year 1901 was lis tened to by the people of the Sacred Heart congregation with much pleasure and satisfaction last Sunday The re duction of the indebtedness since Father Walsh assumed control is a great relief and a credit to both pastor and people During the year an important addition was made to the school building which was also renovated and improved and this added to the amount paid off on the debt gives evidence of careful finan cieringRev Father Walsh stated that the year had been most prosperous and he thanked and congratulated the parishioners on their generosity and cooperation with him in all he had proposed to them During the coming year an earn est effort will be made to wipe out the remaining indebtedness With this end in view a debt paying society has been formed and all members of the congregation will be called upon to subscribe and pay monthly into this fund such sums as popular secration of the church in the near future after which it will befrescoed d and greatly beautified throughout LOOK OUT FOR HIM John Lally a young man well and

but two men in this country besides the famous ecclesiastics was con ferred not long ago by Pope Leo on Jan Kubelik the young violinist who has conquered all Europe by his genius and is door making an equally startling con quest on this side of the ocean Kubelik is but twentyone years old but he has won laurels that few musicians have attained Jn a lifetime After he had listened to his playing the Pope described him as a modern Paganini and decorated him with the Order of St Gregory which outside of Cardinals has been given to Messrs Eugene Kelly and John Crimmins both of New York If such a distinction were insufficient and as a social tribute to Kukeliks mar velous accomplishment Pope Leo also made the young violinist a gist of two rosaries One of these rosaries was to keep the young man safe while he was away from home the oth r he was to present to his mother Such expressions of Pontifical favor are earned with dim cultyand are of infrequent occurence Mr Corlitz Kubeliks manager attributes the rapid success of this artist in America partly to the prosperity of the country and partly to the closer relations between this country and Europe which caused Kubeliks fame broad to be- effectivehere He knows what it means to arouse the musical appreciation of the people la this qouutry for helms been ia America since 1879 and for ten years was manager for pUder wskiTheJa8t J 0

disposition under his previous decision The case grew out of the failure cf the late lamented Edward B Nugent for many years among the leading dry goods merchants of this city From all the evidence

have been endeavoring by varied means of ostracism and proscription to restrict the growth of the Catholic church in this coup try must feel gratified at results as evidenced in the census of 1901 It not only shows the Catholics to debe nomination in the country but that the present membership of 9i58r 741 is an increase of nearly half a million over 1900 fifteen times the increase of the Protestant Episco palians who come next with 741 697 members an increase of 31341 In the ratio of percentage the Cath olic increase was 25 per cent greater than the Protestant Episco palians being 51 against 42 Of the total church membership of 28 j 090637 the Catholics have 326 per cent as against 317 per cent a year ago Of the total increase of 730027 in church members in the past year 468083 or nearly 65 per cent of the increase are Catho tlies while the total percentage of gain in population is 218 percent and of all church membership 267 per cent the Catholic gain is 51 centOn whole it is clear that the efforts of the patriots have not only failed of success but have had a counter effect If they knew as much of the Catholic church as they profess they would know it is one of the peculiarities of that church that- persecution it thrives best under that oppression is th andgreatprompts them to more earnest effort that the Catholic church has ex perienced resistance and proscrip tion of all kinds at all times since its founding that the blood oft martyrs has been the seed of the churchiand that it has not only survived but triumphed over its enemies grown stronger and ex tended farther over the world This has been its history from the begin ning and the last ten years of organized antiCatholic agitation and ostracism has produced the same result in this country as the same policy has in other countries in past centuries f PUBLIC PRINTER BEHItyD lt The lowest bidder State1pt lie printer seems to be like tliy dogs tail as usual The Senate last week adopied a motion and ajv pointed a committee to jog he public printer to print the journal of proceedings daily and flat e a copy on each Senators desk every morq ing This is an important require ment qf the public ir rater and its failure to comply wiflf4t4elaysnd embarrasses lein slationIf he is behind already before the ession of 1Jhe legislature has fairly started he is likely to block business when bills and reports pour in just as he did two years ago These matters were all brought to the attention of the Printing Commissioners and a repetition of such embarrassing delays predicted before they awarded the contract but they decided to again give the State printing to the lowest bidder regardless of all con siderations except the price bid claiming that the law gave them no alternativeThe printing will be of poorer workmanship and quality and more delayed under the present contract than the last for the rea soil that the price is lower than the last which was too low for prompt and good work The scheme adopted by the public printer to save his eon under his lowest bid of send g State printing to country offices mt lack facilities and workman n requiring time for shipment back and forth precludes the possibility of prompt and good work Some things are so cheap that they are no good at all and a waste of money and Kentucky State printing has been of that class for several years and will be worse under the present contract because the price can not guarantee any better Good printers do not work for low wages but prefer to leave the State and work elsewhere for fair wages as too many of them have done and are doing Poor printers work cheap but poor printers cannot do good work promptly nor otherwiseThe is1atur is in for another worry over the printing of the jour nal bills and reports They can remedy the evil however by amending the law so as to require the union label on State printing which preceding Legislatures were petitioned to do but refused If this Legislature will pass such an amendment there will be no more trouble about delay and jimcron printing If they will not do so they will deserve all the worry and annoyance of dillydally and botch prints and we hope the cheap public printer will give them a good and lasting dose of it As the Legislature will have this matter brought before them we refer them to States which require the union label on State printing forcomparison with the cheap sys tem in vogue in Kentucky In those States they will find tIle work alleI things considered the cost cheaper Try the union label printing LOOKS LIKE A JOB There may be some question whether the sale of the citys gas stock is right or wrong though we doubt it but there can be no ques turnabout the strings tied to the pending bill in the Legislature We Can see no good reason for the sale but believe it can only result in pecuniary loss to the city as well as injury to the public Be this as it may why is the city not to be allowed to sell the stock to whom and for the price it the owner of the stock sees fit Why is the consent of the Gas Company required before the city can sell What business is it of the pas Company to whom its stockholders sell their stock As this consent of the company is not required to allow individuals to sell their stock why should it be required before the city can sell its stock Why is the city to be made subservient to the Gas Company in the disposal of property belonging to the city This and other features of the proposed bill look queer or to put it more like politics savors of a job in the interest of wouldbe specula tors desiring to get a cinch on ob taining control of the Gas Company and that on terms and at a price satisfactory to them and the Gas Company regardless of consent and interests of the city the owner of stockThere has been no good reason given for the sale of the citys gas stock while there have been many reasons given against the sale but aside from the real merits of the issue there can be no defense of the scheme of the pending bill to bunko the city out of its gas stock on terms acceptable only to the purchasers and pleasing to the Gas Company which has no right whatever to consideration in the transaction If the city is to sell its gas stock it entitled to a free and open market and any restricy tkm can only be for the benefit of others than the city TO BULL THE MARKET The rumors of prospective peace in South Africa reiterated in differ ent shapes and credited to various sources and incidents all seem baseless from a view of the real situation and movements in connec tion with the war The British Government has appealed to the Britishpeople to enlist and to the colonies to furnish additional con tingents to increase the army in South Africa and these appeals failing every part of the empire iis being scoured for troops to be sent to reinforce Kitchener Last week we noted that 1200 men detached from the already depleted regiments on home reserve duty had left England This week 6000 men detached from many regiments throughout India left Calcutta and others are to follow as fast as they can be gathered from all parts of the empire This does not indicate that thfe Government attaches any credence to the reports of imminent peace or probable ending of the war by de feating the Boers The fact that coincident with these peace rumors efforts are made to boom the Lon don stock market and the well known fact that the Government must call for another loan to carry on the war give color to the sus picion that the purpose of the peace reports is to bull the stock market now greatly depressed maintain and advance the price of stocks overcome the apprehensions of the public start trading attract money into circulation and thus prepare the way for the prompt sale at a fair price of the new Government i consols which it is claimed will have to be put on the market not later than March or April Experience with the last loan demonstrated that nothing is to be expected from foreign markets and the only hope is the London stock market inI which trade ihi depressed stocks declined and money scarce even at the high rate for London of 3j per cent Rather a poor prospect of floating 5 per cent consols except at a heavy discount heavier than the present quotation It is the avoid ance of just such a humiliating manifestation of lack of confidence of its own people that is worrying the Ministry The money must come from somewhere however and how to boom the market is the problem Peace in South Africa would undoubtedly do it but real peace except on Boer terms is not in sight Hence the peace rumors which are becoming monotonous and ineffective We certainly feel complimented when our editorials are copied with proper acknowledgement by other papers but when our editorials are published bodily as original edi torial in another paper the lack of fairness and courtesy assumes such gaily plagiarism that we hardly know whether to condemn our brother editors laziness or admire his nerve But it is a common saying that an editor sometimes does not know how many papers he really edits till he looks over his exchanges A committee of the Typographical Union visited Frankfort on Tues day and arranged for the introduc tion of a bill into the Legislature re quiring the union label on State printing We hope this bill will be passed Preceding Legislatures allowed it to be smothered in com mittee This time no effort will be spared to at least bring it to a vote as the printers and all workingmen in fact want a showdown to see who is who Louisville members especially will be held to an ac counting The success of the Labor bazar the first ever attempted here shows what the workmen can do when they unite and go at it in earnest The financial returns were fully satisfactory and the displays and management were favorably com mented by its patrons Of course the ladles who worked so faithfully must not be forgotten in the praise One of the first bills to pass the State Senate was that of Senator p Farris to amend the constitution bY repealing the Australian ballot iin elections and returning to the viva voce system of voting As it passed by a strict party vote it will likely pass the House The Republicans oppose the bill It will have to be- II submitted to popular vote then the- II workingmen will have a chance to defeat the attempt of politicians to wipe out the secret ballot for which the workingmen so long contended Hon Robert J Tracewell Comp troller of the Treasury has been elected an honorary member of Co lumbia Typographical UnionWash ington D C This is an honor rarely conferred bnT a non prtnter though Mr Tracewell worked as ia boy in a small office at Corydon Ind and is evidence that Mr Tracewell as a member of CongresS and in other public positions has treated the boys right If ever a people were sick of any thing the English people are sick of the Boer warC- ARDINAL GIBBONS SALARY The Sun of Baltimore recently repro duced portions of an outspoken essay from a Protestant source on the reasons why the church is losing its hold on the masses Considerable feeling has been aroused by some statements made by the writer and a publicdiscussion has been precipitated Though the original artical was written solely from a Protestant standpoint Rev John T Whelan pastor of the church of SU Mary Star of the Sea Baltimore has been induced to give an expression to his views The following passage is of unusual interest As to the charge of ambition and avarice being the tilling vices of the clergy that too does not hold good in the Catholic church In many Protestant denominations I understand ifa congregation is not pleased with the ministrations of a man or with his preaching he is invited to take his departure In the Catholic church a priest is assigned to his position by his Bishop The question of salary has no place in the appointment Sale aries of two three four or five thousand dollars are not uncommon among the Protestant clergy I wonder how many people are aware that the salary of the head of the Primatial See in the United States Cardinal Gibbonsis exactly 1000 a year- Thousands of the Catholics in our own citynot to speak of those else whereare under he care of Redenip torists Easskmists UenedlcUnes or Jes uits1l1e members of these orders re ceive no salary

interests of the Catholic sailors are looked after by an organization known as the Catholic Sailors Club This club is composed of laymen who are promlentin their sev eral professions but who are not too busy nor too indifferent to take an interest in a lUrge and hitherto somewhat neglected body of their coreligionists who are inclined to be careless about their relig ious duties The Catholic Sailors Club rooms are open afternoon and evening i and the appreciation of the seamen is evident from the fact that in the six months past the number of visits made to the rooms by seamen amounted to 7835 J Other items of the report iindicate the scope of the work undertaken by the club For instance In the same periodII six months Number of seamen attending J mass from the rooms 663 number ofc

Irish mother who put a capJ around her comely face between theJJ JbrownJ To her simple soul marriage meant consecration the man who choose her need not concern himself about the littles tendernesses her affection was as fixed as the stars He might be unreasonable exacting nay in trying times be might be cruel but her faith in the divine right 1I- of husbands was unshaken She would have the children reverential to their father even if she should have to romance a little to effect it and I with what loving sophistry she explained his weaknessaway JJ- She never understood a constitution political or physical but when sickness j was in the family her pathetic cares made the poor broth strenghteaing and thee bitter medicine sweet No sleep no rest no peace for her while the shadow of death lay across the threshold and how bard it was to die under her be seeching eyes but if a summons bad J- c i really come she would hold A crucifix to the dying lips and the beloved son or daughter carried the sound of her voice with them to heaven for what Irish mother but could say the prayers for the departing soul Not even the story of her country wrongs could embitter her guilelessi nature The mantle of her charity cov eredeven the bloody Sassenacb an 3 sometimes secretly not daring to let iit be known she recommended them to the Virgin Mother If her belief in her husband was strong who could measure the confidence she reposed in the brave boys who overtopped her at sixteen Anything evil in them her glory and tier delight Impossible They were always white boys in their mothers eyes however dark and desperate iu the eyes of those who dwelt in palaces Her un questioning trust and earnest teaching kept them pure and honest in their early days and later when they discovered that their dear mother was only a simple illogical unletteredwoman their loyalty and devotion deepened to find what wonders she had worked with her few talents What a tragedy Shakespeare could have woven round her haunted all her life by a phantom ship at anchor in some harbor waiting till the children of her love were old enough to take passage and leave her forever How sorrowful must have been her joy in seeing them rise to the stature of men and women I wonder if she is still in the Old Land stealing out of her lonely home at night alwaysteastward and when no one is by falling on her knees and lifting her hands in such intensity of supplication that they touch the hem of His garment and her inhthe far off landher faith has made them wholeIf flowers emblematic of their lives couldspring from the dust beneath it would be easy to find the grave of the Irish mother Roses would be clustered on the em atnthe feet among the sweetest of the clover thereewould be lillies CATHOLIC WIVES It is becoming fashionable in high circles to have a Catholic wife since Ad miral Dewey set the example Among those who are now in the style are Gen McArthur Gen Corbin Senator Joseph S C Blackburn and Senator Depew The late Senator Vance of North Carolina had for bis second wife a Catholic lady As there is a great deal of bigotry in that State he was asked shortly after Mr Clevelands first election to the Presi dency why he had chosen a Catholic mate Ill tell you the reason be replied In my younger days I tried rum and rebellion and found then mighty good things So as they were so much to my liking I thought Id finish the bunch and try Romanism The echoes of Burcharda fateful speech were still ringing through the land The Senator could afford to be jovial on the subject for he had a very excellent wife who still survives In this respect all the others named are equally fortunate CLEANING FURNITURE Raw linseed oil and spirits of turpen tine in the proportion of twothirds oil and one of turpentine is the modern furniture reviver It is what professionals rely on as a rule they use no other The woodwork should be first carefully wiped off with a dry soft cloth and the dust thoroughly removed from corners and carvings The best article to accomplish this is a large paint brush usually called painters duster The oil may then be applied with a smaller brush wiping off with a soft cloth and rubbing thoroughly dry It will be found that dents and scratches lose their prominence under i this treatment Should this method be jpursued with regularity there will be no idifficulty

SentinelTimothy Lyons INFLUENCES Of the Irish Race in the Up building of Our Grand Republic 1 The Glowing Eulogy Bestowed1 by Senator George F oarII Extracts From Lecture to Catholic Young Men of = Boston r t GREW QUALITIES OF THE CELTS Nobody can tell exactly but nearlY or quite 21000000 immigrants have come to this country within living memory If they were alive now they would make a great and mighty nation able to hold their own against any power in the world I am not sure that they could not hold it against the powers of the world com blued What brought them across the sea Undoubtedly our great natural resources had something to do with it But the natural resources of South America are as great as ours and yet the immigrants do not go there It was not a community of religious faith that attracted them The larger part of our immigration till very lately deyptedCathotlcs country The one thing that brought these men here perhaps half unconsciously to them selves is three or four little sentences Thomas Jefferson wrote and the fathers of the republiesigned When our fathers laid that cornerstone for the State they meant to make for the nations of the earth without distinction of race or rank a city of refuge a city that bath foundations whose builder and maker is God II It is a singular fact that I believe now everywhere accepted by our statisticians and ethnologists that the composition of this country as found by the last census leaving out the negro is made up of just about the same racial elements in just about the same proportions that made up England in tbe time of Elizabeth when she began her great career of empire and gloryIreland has kept under the providence of God the pure Celtic leaven to be mingled with our mass also The Celt has come here JHe is here He is here to abide We could not help it if we would And I for one would not help it if I could The Celts seem everywhere to a superficial view to be a losing race But everywhere in the quality they Impart they have conquered their conquerors Among all the great races none was ever more distinguished for valor for pro found religious feeling for acute sensi bility for humor and for tender sym pathyThey have been wonderful fighters from Charlemagne down to Wellington and Montgqmery and Andrew Jackson and Phil Sheridan They have been wonderful orators as witness Burke and Sheridan and Grattan and Curran and Plunket They have always made a brave and long and sullen resistance when they were overcome by a superior forceThey never would stay whipped They preserved under adversity and under the heel of oppression for centuries long their sublime and unconquerable discon tent They always had tbe same perti nacity that the Spaniards imputed to us in the late war Instead of retiring when they were beaten as any geaJUanan should they kept straight OM I believe that the goldm rule 1M re n t ligion of Christ the declaration of hide pendence the constitution of the United States will in Gods good time settle this problem for us also and that the country men of Daniel OConnell the great liber ator and greater abolitionist will largely help us to settle it The Irishman takes kindly enough to politics He does his full share in war I hope we may join together more than we have been wont to do in those works of peaceful public spirit which do not depend on political feeling for their stimulant or to office or party success as a rewardIt be invidious to mention living men but I can not forbear paying my tribute of homage to one illustrious clergyman of Catholic faitb John Ire land who was able to declare when he was Bishop of Minnesota that not 5 per cent of the liquor dealers within that diocese were Catholics I have verified this story within sixty days from his own lips I wish to pay my profound homage to the man who brought that to pass I felt that his Christianity and that of my reverendand beloved master Edward Everett Hale were in essentials very much the same When somebody told Abraham Lincoln during the war that Gen Grant drank whisky he said he would like to send a barrel of the same kind to each of the other Generals I should like to send a barrel of Archbishop Irelands theology to the other Bishops When the same man a few yearn ago in Washington uttered his brave rebuke to the men who despoiled our Southern fellowcitizens of the gloryof their Amer ican citizenship and when I heard him eloquently reaffirm the old American doctrine that sovereignty over an unwill ing people is not a thing to be bought with money or won as the spoil of battle I felt I should like to send some Protestant clergyman to his Sun dayschoolThe important part of human his tory is that which science does not ex plain The part of us that comes by race the part of us that comes by evolu tion from the grass and the mollusk and the monkey is after all not tbe most important part of us There is a spiritual lineage in which the Celtic and the Saxon are very near akin What was it that made the Pilgrims cross the sea on that bleak and stormy voyage and yet when the larger part of them died that first winter no man of the survivors went back in the ship to Eng lang in the spring There was a wireless telegraphy which came down across the ages from the men of Marathon and Thermopylae to the men of the Mayflower and came down from the men of tbe Mayflower to the men of the revolu tion and came down from the revolution to our splendid youth of 1861 It is not everywhere on earth that the receiving stations of its signals are yet to be found They were seen in the dun geon of the negro Toussaint LOuver ture Possibly there is a spot in South Africa today where a race of Dutch farmers have been able to comprehend the messages I trust there are some men still left illI the United States who have ears to hearI Possibly the thrill of its electric current isfelt iu the prison of Agulnaldo There is something in this which does not come to us from the grass or the mollusk or the monkey It is not Saxon nor Celtic nor Norman nor Teuton The white man and the black man and the red man and the brown man can feel it I do not believe you are ever to forget it It is the bond that holds this country of ours together Patriotism love of home love of woman love of honor love of justiceare the things for which as we tblslrepublicand of which the mere student of the

conversation A man starts forth on the sea of life with two beacon lights to guide him one is his belief in God the other his belief in wood women Some men pass through tbe tempest finding the first tight shrouded for a time It often depends upon the second whether he reaches port in safety or makes shipwreck Sometimes if the pure light of a womans influence is brought across the waters he rides out the storm and finds that the other light which he thought had failed bint was shining all the time but the telescope with which be sought it was clouded Such influence as this is notcpnscious It is not owingto an attempt to do any belsgfoathingTbe stainless heritage that is hers by right has an unconscious power on those she meets and many a man when face to face with that power has had no choice but to strive to make himself what such a one believes him to be feeling BO other course open to him but an impossible hypocrisy or a yet more responsible flight WHAT GIRLS MAY ACCEPT The only
