AMERICAN VOLUME VIIINO 9 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY MARCH 1 1902 PRICE FIVE CENTS ROBERT EMMET 1 Anniversary of Irelands Young L Martyr Patriot on March 4 Historical Sketch of Condition- and Events of His Time His Undying Devotion and Efforts For Ills OonntrH- Jlbert3 MEMORABLE SPEECH AT HIS TRIAL On March 4 the anniversary of Robert Emmet every true Irish beart will thrill with admiration of Irelands martyr patriot and indignation for his murderers and their countrys oppressor proving that the cause for which Emmet died still lives as fresh and ardent as a cen tury ago To every Irishman the life of Emmet is familiar We give a sketch of the conditions and events of his last effort in behalf of his country The concessions grudgingly given Ireland were nullified when the fear of French invasion grew less and the little difficulty with the United States was settled Ireland must cease to be a nation must become a province a shire of Englandand for that purpose the people were goaded into rebellion that the late concessions might be withdrawn and the way made clear for the extinc tion of the Irish nationality But the eloquence of Grattan and his little band of followers had not been without bearing fruit During the decades which had seen the great parlia mentary debates the rise of the volun teers the compulsion of England the liberation and growth of Irish industry the increase and contentment of the population there had come to the front a young Ireland which looked on all this as only the stepping stone to a high plane of public and national life These were the United Irishmen as brave and disinterested a body of patriots as ever conspired for their countrys freedom men ofevery class in Ireland from the great ducal families down to the plain and honest tradesmen and the tillers of the soil They were not originally a secret society but the virulent cruelty of the castle and the malignant hate of English statesmen drove them to the patriots last resource the secret plotting and the armed rising They had enrolled half a million mem bers and had provided rude arms for some 300000 They were able to interest both France and Holland for three years in their projects They had behind them ninetenths of Ireland deprived yet of perfect religious equality and smart ing under political disabilities and the social and economical injustices of many centuries standing The immemorial sign of the national independence the Parliament was tottering to its fall the exertions of Tone the expedition of Hoche its sad failure the reprisals on the unfortunate peasantry the excesses of the soldiery the rising of 98 and the final repression of the illtimed and ill starred movement which1 cost England an enormous treasure that Ireland had to repay and took over 100000 men for the task of repressing a very partial insurrec tion in a portion of the island Then came the unholy and unhappy union of the Parliaments of two kingdoms The Irish Parliament was dissolved forever Iii 1801 and an institution that went back to the Feis of Tara ceased its immemorial career It was into this Ireland of the closing eighteenth century that Robert Emmet was born the youngest son of a patriotic and distinguished physician and the brother of Thomas Addis Emmet one of the most active of the United Irishmen Trinity College did not extinguish the aspirations of the younger Emmets soul on the contrary the time he saved from grave study was devoted to the history of his country to plans for the betterment of her condition and his ardent proselyt ism for justice and equality led to his expulsion from the college By birth and family connection he might have aspired to the highest gifts in the power of the English State but he preferred to share his countrys sufferings and at the very outset cast his lot with those who meditated her formal independence The public reprisals of the Government ended with the imprisonment and later with the exile of the chief leaders prominent among whom was Thomas Addis the brother of Robert Emmet In the fall of 1802 the two brothers met on the continent where the exiles of 1798 were organizing a last effort to effect the independence of the Green Isle From the society of the exiles and the continental diplomats Robert Enimet returned glowing with enthusiasm filled with hope null em ployed the first six months of 1803 in setting on foot a last army of resistance to the English conqueror lIe threw into the movement indomitable energy and a persistent vigor He was omni present and by discourse example and writing roused again the drooping spirits of those men who found the irons of slavery worse than the fetters of the grave Wltblincredible ingenuity and boldMM lie began to construct weapons and ammunition ofwar and under shadow of the Castle prepared to cope- with the power of Great Britain In a very brief space of time he had planned a new insurrection which was to coincide with the landing of French troops but the inevitable traitors and certain mishaps and misunderstandings caused a weak and disconnected attempt on July 23 in Dublin which was promptly suppressed A brief thrusting of pikes in the streets some volleys from the sol movementsof the United Irishmen had burned out leaving Erin in the most helpless plight exhausted friendless resourceless at the tender mercy of her secular enemy The trial of Emmet was like ten thou sand other Irish State trials a judicial Farce for he was dead within twentyfour hours of the opening of the trial Of him it might truly be said that nothing hI his life became hint like the leaving of it His dying words proclaim the gist of Irelands grievances the heartlessness corruption and prejudice of her con queror The lips of Emmet were but the channel for the composite utterance of all the Irishmen who ever bled or died for country or religion or for both No man wasever so surely the spokesman of oppressed innocence and the herald of Iron nemesis as Robert Emmet when he paced with emotion that narrow dock in Dublin and swaying slightly as was his wont in speaking pronounced a loud hut exquisitely modulatedvoice this sentence against a nation that had so long and so signally outraged the lie tates of humanity The man dies but his memory lives That mine may not perish that it may live in the respect of my countrymen I seize this opportunity to vindicate myself from some of the charges alleged against me When my spirit shall be wafted to some more friendly port when my shade shall have joined the bands of those martyred heroes who have shed their blood on the scaffold and in the field in defense of their country and of virtue I wish that my name and my memory may animate those who survive me while I look down with complacency on the destruction of that perfidious Govern ment which upholds its domination by blasphemy of the Most High which dis plays its power over man as over beasts of the forest which sets man upon his brother and lifts his hand in the name of God against the throat of his fellow who believes or doubts a little more or a little less than the Government standard a Government which is steeled to barbarity by the cries of the orphans and the tears of the widows which it has made My lord you seem impatient for the sacrifice The blood for which you thirst is not congealed by the artificial terrors which surround your victim it circulates warmly and unruffled through the chan nels which God created for nobler pur poses but which vou are bent to destroy for purposes so grievous that they cry to Heaven Be ye yet impatient I have but a few words to say I am going to my cold and silent grave my lamp of life is nearly extinguished my race is run the grave opens to receive me and I sink into its bosom I have but one request to ask at my departure from this world It is the charity of its silence Let no man write my epitaph for as no man who knows my motives dare now vindicate them let not prejudice or ignorance asperse them Let them and me rest in obscurity and peace an 7 my tomb remain uniriscribed until other times and other men can do justice to my character When my country takes her place among the nations of the earth then and not till then let my epitaph be written So perished Robert Emmet the flower of Irelands youth the pride of Irelands peer of any of the brave and stainless souls who have lived and heyday that beckoned him to the accepted path of glory and renown branded as a trai tor and singed with every infamy that infamous laws could inflict his name has become as he foresaw one of the worlds great shibboleths Ohl breathe not his name let it rest in the shade Where cold and unhonorcd his relics are laid Sad silent and dark be the tears that we shed As the night dew that falls on the grass oer his head But the night dew that falls though in weepsShall verdure the grave sleepsAnd shied though in secret it rolls Shall long keep his memory green in our souls p p

will secure the best seats for the small sum of twentyfive cents Last year numbers waited until a few days be fore the entertainment and were disap pointed because they had to occupy the balcony The same will occur again unless they heed this warning and secure their seats soon which can ibe done with out any additional cost A meeting of the County Board was held last night with President Keenan

calm deliberate waysuch- as our German friends so well know how to Use with deadly effectshe unmasked Englands pretense of being Americas friend during the war with Spain The authorized publication of Ambassador Von Hpllenbena letters is proof con elusive that in reality the beloved mother country was our enemy What raw shall become of the new American Tories the delightful little n i Tommies who have been buzzing so in dnstrionsly of Englands affection durluj the last four years Are they satisfied with Germanys action taken in self defense Or will they wait until the heavens rain down flame upon them Will the revelation prevent them from rutting over sea to look on Edward crowned Will they have common American manhood sufficient to induce them to refrain from mingling with the enemies of their country We fear not The gabble of hands across the sea must go on even though they become convinced that the atmosphere shall freeze off their thumbs Theyve glued their optics on the coat tails of a real live King and are resolved to go on lov ing no matter if kicked at home and abroad And yet and yet surely there are those high in power at Washington who have known all these years how matters stood and yet have mightily counte nanced all the fum and fudge written and spoken with regard to the beauty and loveliness of Englands affection for us Was this well done Was it right to

Imprisoned and Others Prosecuted GREAT GATHERING AT IRISH COURT Dispatches from London state that the Irish party attaches great signifi cance to the evictions of the tenants of t forty farms on Lord De Freynes estate in Roscommon county Ireland for refusal to pay rent and intends to make a fierce Parliamentary struggle over the s matterJohn Redmond Chairman of the Irish Parliamentary party says Not only are forty tenants now sold out but many hundreds of others are being proceeded against The country thereabouts is alive with police who patrol the roads day and night force themselves into s e peoples houses and in every way create a reign of terror Fifteen representative public men of the district have been imprisoned merely for taking part in meetings of a peaceable nature and many others are being prosecuted Everything has been peaceable so far but the proceedings of the Government are so extraordinary that we can not help feeling anxious lest violence occur The cause of all the trouble is the Governments refusal to face the Unani mous demand of the Irish people that it pass legislation giving compulsory powers to buy out Irish landlords and thus restore the land to the Irish people Lord Dillons estate which is next to Lord De Freynes was bought out by the Government and the tenants who bought the land are paying 50 per cent less rent than formerly The De Freyne tenants naturally wished to do likewise but ivorcHJe Freyne refused to sell on any terms The Government instead of en deavoring to effect a settlement poured in an army of police John Dillon the former Chairman of the Irish Parliamentary party says I agree with every word uttered by Mr Redmond The trouble although for the moment confined to Roscommon In volves a principle of vital interest to Ireland If the De Freyne tenants suc ceed it will be impossible for the Government to resist any longer our claims for compulsory settlement of the Irish laud questidn The very existence of the Irish nation and the whole future of the Irish national movement are seriously affected by the struggle proceeding on the De Freyne and neighboring estates Dublin Castle so interwoven with tra dition has never been more brilliant than on the occasion of the first drawing room with which the Lord Lieutenant amid Lady Cadogan opened the season writes the Worlds correspondent The Irish court is renowned for its beauties and there was an unusually large number of charming debutantes this year Time Vicereine who is a woman of t splendid distinction and great personal popularity made a fitting central figure for such a court Standing by the side of her husband in front of the throne in the old throne room as custom pre scribes she was strikingly picturesque in her truly royal gown White Oriental satin was veiled with silver tissue em broidered with huge black velvet lilies and silver roses Over this was a cover ing of black Chantilly net through which the shimmering satin and silver shone with marvelous effect Diamond orna ments lent the last perfect touch Hitherto the Lord Lieutenant has sa luted the cheek of each debutante as she was presented This was one of the royal prerogatives But King Edwards request has modified the greeting to a hand shake and the beauties who passed in review were for the first time spared a blushing consent The fact that the Irish drawing room is held in the evening makes it an affair of much greater enjoy men than the more formal afternoon State reception The fluke the Kings brother and the Duchess of Connaught as the guests of hono were present with their older daughter Countess Cadogans standing byherLimerick and Carrickmacross are her favorites She has also made Irish poplin a vogue again and has proved its very feffectual advocate with

SATURDAY MARCH i 1902 KILL THIS BILL I It is claimed by the advocates of the bill to tax life insurance policy reserves that Clthe bill will not comI pel the policy holder to pay the toII but will compel the companies pay it And of course the com panies will pay it and let it go at that How blinded some folks become in urging legislation to the rich as they term it On taxII one hand they argue that all taxes are paid by the consumer and then suddenly they seem to ignore that logical fact So the consumer policy holder will pay the pro posed tax though the companies will be assessed and pay it direct to the State because the companies can not afford to pay it out of their profits and would not if they could If the bill passes the policy holder will pay the tax or as has been done in other States the insurance companies will cancel all Kentucky Thenpolicieswho will lose It is time this kind of cranky legislation were stopped Kentucky has had far too much of it already FOLLOW OUR EXAMPLE The Catholics of Connecticut are protesting against the denial of religious liberty to Catholic inmates and the proselytying of Catholic children in the public institutions of that State It is surprising that those energetic and well organized Catholics should have submitted thus long to such intolerance when their brethren in other states have remedied such things years ago We had a similar condition of things in Kentucky until after a six years contest a liberty of con science bill was enacted which opens the doors of public institu tionsjails prisons asylums alms houses hospitalsto the clergy of all denominations and guarantees tp all inmates even the Jews the 4full and free right of religious practice and worship If the handful t of Catholics in the partisan State of Kentucky did this certainly the Catholics of Connecticut onethird the population of a politically close State can But they must stop protesting to which politicians pay no attention Draw up a bill submit it to political leaders and candidates of both political parties present it to the legislature insist on its passage and persist till it is enacted into law The Catholics of Connecti cut have the votes to hold the bal ance of power in deciding which political party shall control State legislation and there is no reason why they should not by united action and independent voting see cure all needed relief from injustice SCORED A VICTORY The National Civic Federation composed of labor leaders manu facturers rVurchmen and business men who voluntarily met in New York to discuss labor and other questions last fall resulting in their organizing and tendering their services to aid in averting or settling labor troubles by arbi- trationi and mutual concessions ha scored its first victory in bringing about an amicable settlement oi the big strike of the garmentt workers in New York involving 40000 employes and seriously ham cornPe promise the employes accept eightt and a half instead of eight hours a small increase in wages and whatt they were chiefly contending for better sanitary conditions in the workrooms This certainly com ntend theJfederation and an effortt is being ajade to

for months in San Francisco It is reported that the recent visit of Archbishop Ireland who is a member of the Federation to Chi cago and his calling on prominent purposeloftrouble in the building trades of that citv COERCION IN IRELAND Is the British Government trying to force a crisis in Ireland Since the passage of the law permitting home rule in local government and the promise of further concessions the Irish people have displayed new energy and progress developing and extending public roads improving public buildings in creasing manufactures and farm products opening up new markets and have prospered They have also been lawabiding the courts having few cases to try and fre quently none at all But this has tended to bring the Irish people together and unite them in urging the promised additional concessions and sending a nearly solid delegation to Parliament to insist upon their being granted Naturally the one vital question which bears heaviest and most retards development and oppresses the Irish peoplethe land question is being most earnestly advocated and on this the Irish people are thoroughly united and active the League seeking redress only through legal means backed up by sithltart organizations in the United States the British colonies and in England and Scotland The ques tion must come before before Par liament and the pledge to grant relief to the Irish tenantry must be met unless some way can be found to avert it And it seems that the British Government is seeking the same old way of evading promises to Ireland and preparing the way for an excuse to give more oppres sion instead of relief Thus without warning and utterly ignoring the usual forms of civil procedure in cases of alleged violations of law the forms if not the actual rule of martial law and coercion are put in full force in County Roscommon because of al leged violations of the land law by tenants Without legal process without warrant tenants have been evicted houses entered and searched persons arrested and im prisoned bail and even counsel being denied and the entire sec tion of the country is being patrolled by armed constables per sons including members of Parliament officials prominent trades men People of good character have been summarily arrested refused bail for attending public meetings not forbidden by law That the real offense if any was trivial is shown in the result of the trials that have taken placeusually- a few days in jail though the members of Parliament were given ponds ing an appeal thus preventing their attending Parliament now iin session Such a severe and arbitrary course by the Government can have no ground for justification th Irish people being unusually peaceable and lawabiding devotin their energy to industries andl trade aud in their desire for redressI of grievances adhering to strictly leg lanJ peaceful means The GoVptiutcan have but one pur p6M rto terrorizethe Irish Jpeople D a it j into abandoning their efforts for further redress to force the disso lution of the Irish league and National party and restore the I i landlords to prestige and control in Ireland or by provoking the people to utterances and acts as a pretext for restrictive and coercive measures and a resort to armed force to settle the Irish question for a time at leastin blood if neces saryThe crisis has been reached by the Irish people if not by the Gov eminent and upon their forbear ance and restraint trying as it will be depends the future of their ef forts for their country Their first overt act no matter what the pro vocation will be taken advantage of by the Government to crushout the League and Nationalist party and add further oppression on the Irish people Aggravating as are the conditions now is the time for wise counsel shrewd action and firmness to avoid resort to violence which will wreck all A DARK CHAPTER The British War Office reported to Parliament that the total num ber of horses purchased and sent to South Africa since the beginning of the Boer war was 446083 Even this large number has not sufficed so fatal is the climate to imported horses and British agents are still buying wherever they can The loss of the army is given at 25395 officers and men killed So 556 wounded aud 64330 sent back to England suffering from disease or a total of 170271 officers and menThe total cost of the war to date is given at about 800000000 and the War Office asks for another loan of 50000000 in addition to the regular appropriation for army and utvy Nor is any promise of early peace held ontoOn the contrary the report estimates the hostile Boer force still in the field at eighty or ninety commandos about 18000 men under command of Gens Botha and De Wet operating not only in the Transvaal and Orange Free State but throughout the British colonies of South Africa Certainly a gloomy report wrung from the Secretary for War by Par liamentary inquiry and reluctantly given The Irish landlords their agents and creditors in London are alarmed over the land agitation in Ireland and the disturbances in Roscom mon because of the discovery that the Government has drawn nearly all the troops from Ireland and sent them to fight the Boers The barracks throughout Ireland are all but vacant In Dublin there is not a single British soldier This leaves only the constabulary to protect the landlords and enforce their de mands and it is evident the land lords have a poor opinion of the peelers The appointment of several Cath olic priests as chaplains of the navy a position not generally sought by the Protestant clergy has aroused a party by the name of Johnson who at a meeting in New York sounded the alarm that our navy was being Romanized and that he had reason to believe the author ities at Washington were cognizant of the plot of the Romanists to obtain control of our power upon the seas He wants to arouse the American people to protest against and avert the disaster The complications and contrari ties in England will be illustrated next June when King Edward VII will be crowned in Westminster Abbey built centuries ago by Roman Catholics confiscated and since used for antiCatholic worship and the King will declare in his oath that Roman Catholicism is heresy and idolatry Three days later willeconsecrate and open for Roman Wesfming ster Cathedral IIf cod is boiled in salted

stroke sustained two weeks ago Vhen last heard from there was little change in his condition FASHIONS FOIBLES One thing which is very apparent among the new gowns in sight is that tucks have not gone out of fashion Ou the contrary they seem to have renewed their usefulness as a mode of trimming There are some pretty open work silk braids in a mixture of soft art colors which are used as a finish on the foulard silks One rather novel model in foulard has a coat bodice of heavy ecru lace rounding down from bolero fronts to time wstilHon at the back Each week seems to reveal some new feature in the cotton dress fabrics one of which is grass cloth in white with a stripe of close weave Then there are new fine lawns with open work stripes lawns with narrow lace insertions woven stripe fashion into material One of the smart new coats which are to be a part of our spring fashions Is shown It is in biscuitcolored cloth trimmed with bands of velvet in a darker shade and the vest id of white cloth embroidered in gold and soft shades of blue and pink silk The jabot is of ecru laceGrace of outline is still the battle cry of fashion so we need not expect any panniers or bustles for some time The fashionable fabric which is most popular- Is the one which will respond to every movement of the figure Yet here we are in the midst of brocade and moire silks again The whole trend of dress at the moment is toward greater elegance and extravagance reaching out in every direc tion so that the gratification of any whim or fancy a woman may have is only a question of price Picturesque effects are very much in evidence not only in coats and tablier skirts but in ichus elbow frills and hats All the early predictions as to the styles of skirts are borne out in the advance installment of new models carried out in the foulards and muslins They are either accurately cut and molded to the hips with abundant flare at the feet or shirred or plaited around the hips if the material is very thin and the figure will admit of an extra fullness The new style of shirt waist with side pleats on either side turning toward the shoulder is especially good in this material and is often made without any colors two rows of white pearl buttons finishing it down the front Pongee silks come In other colors besides beige iu delicate blues pinks and violet tints which are charmingly made up in sum mer gowns For some cleaning purposes the materials are commonplace articles to be fount in every household A cut raw potato may be turned to good account when you get mud stains on your black dress The mud should be allowed to- dry before making any attempt to remove itt Then brush it off as thoroughly as- possible and if any stains remain rub the cut surface of a raw potato over the spots I of i c

realize that the knot was ever anything more than a mere figure of speech Among the Babylonians tying the knot was part of the marriage cere mony There the priest took a thread of the garment of the bride and another from that of the bridegroom and tied them into a knot which he gave to the bride thus symbolizing the binding nature of the union which now existed between herself and her husband GIRLS SHOULD LEARN TO COOK Much of the unhappiness not to say miseryof life Is due directly or indirectly to the cooking and in probably nine cases in ten poor cooking is due to the fact that the mistress of the household is grossly ignorant of the culinary art Not knowing how the kitchen should be con ducted or how any dish should be prepared she is at the mercy of the cooks dishonestyYoungcooking a good meal It is an accom plishment as well as a protection n FAMED IRISH SONGS EMMET Though the minstrel of Erin who chanted his fame Hath said of her martyr OhlI breathe not his name Yet what bard of erne the wild harp could wake And forget the young hero who died for her sake Thought the page of her history holds to our view Many names of the valiant the fearless the true Yet sad memory turns away to recall The brightest the noblest the purest of all Oh his was the heart that to fear was un known When the loud trump of freedom through Erin was blown How far calmer his fetterless sleep in the grave Than the clink of the chains on the limbs of a slave 1 Though Columbias first chieftain and Brutus and Tell Are names to awaken bright libertys spell Yet undimmed by its luster should cloud less be seen The patriot chief of the standard of green And when the proud sunburst of Erin unfurled Proclaiming her free shall illumine the wor1c- 1nmblazoned shall be on its folds waving wide The name of our hero her martry her pride The flawed Diamond Ive been very much interested in read- Ing about them former alcoholic digen erates remarked Col Martin Haley Not that Im an alcoholic digenerate myself for In the first place I never drink more than I can carry and in the second I cant reconcile meself to allyiu1 such a word as digenerate with good whisky But I once found meself in much the same position as some of them fellers barrin the jag only much worse off than any of them What would ye say to a man with seventytwo cents in his pocket n broken head and 10000 miles away from every soul that knew him Well thats the way I was fixed but I won out and at the present time I have money in the bank fifteen hundred acres of decent lund and God knows how many head of cattle Let any of them former digen erates beat that if they can The way it happened was this I ran away from Dublin when I was a lad of twelve for the reason that me father was a hard man and the fist of him was no softer than the rest of his makeup I got a job as a cabin boy on an Australian trader and settled down near Sydney where I stayed for ten years and saved up X500 not bad for a lad eh Then I pulled up stakes and started for the United States My idea was to invest my money in a ranch somewhere and become a landed gentleman I had heard about Kansas City I didnt know a soul in the place or in the country for that matter barrin a few travelin acquaint ances Id met Well the day I struck Kansas City the gas house blew up That night it was darker than hades and ye can imagine that none but an Irishman would start out to see the town under them circum stances Before Id gone far I saw more light than a million gas houses could make in a month and then I saw nothin1 at all Some coyote had cracked me over the head with a stocking filled with sandso they told me at the hospital a week laterand all hed left me was seventytwo cents and the key to my trunk His little trick lead netted him two thousand dollers in bills and n dia mond ring with a funny little flaw in the stone I told the police I would know that stone anywhere and they started to trace up the fellow that soaked me by that clew They never found him nor the diamond neither and meantime I got fired from the hotel I had lodged out the value of my trunk There I was as I told ye thousands of miles from any one I knew and without a cent to my name Dont that beat your retired di generate in a canter- I started to hoof it through Kansas lookin for any old kind of a job The place was hull of tramps I was no better than that mind yeand the divil a per manent situation could I get anywhere Farmers was drivin the whole bunch of hoboes along with guns me with the rest Finally I got down to a place called Coffeyville There wasnt any tramps theremost likely because it was such a forsaken town at that time Coffeyville ye know is down by the In dian Territory line I got a job there in a livery stable at three dollars a week and my grub and the boss was a decent man He says to me one day Martin he says Ive got a good place for ye if yen take it down in the Territory where yen have a chance to get on better than here What doin says I Ranch band on a big place says he What me work for an Injun says I for I knew that none but a Cherokee tribesman could hold land in the strip that was long before Uncle Sam bought it and opened it up for settlement What of m says the boss Its fifteen dollars a month and yer keep yerjobWhats the name of the savage says IMaguire says he Mother of Moses Isays the

was only a halfbreed says he Her father was a Pole from Poland and as good a Christian as yerself Of course that made a differenced It was a fine big place he had fifteen hundredt acres with a barbwire feiice around it and as fine a house as yed want on it After Id helpedhim to un hitch we went to the house There was a fine slip cf a girl stand In in the door She had big black eyes and hair to match Thats my daughter Dovita says Maguire You would never think she was Injun barrin the straightness of her hair and her backbone for in the first place she was clean and in the second place she was pretty but thats not to be wondered at seein that she was half colleen and only a quarter squaw Wanting to be pleasant 1 gave her a compliment but she only turns up her nose and begins talkin tp her papa showin tint she considered me tiothin1 more than what I really wasa hired man My pride was hurt but I went right to work and made up my mind that some day I would make that aristocratic Cherokee lady take off her hat to me so to speak Being brought up in the saddle I could ride anything that wore hair as the sayin is anti one day I noticed that while I was liavin a beautiful argument with a little divil of a broncho front Texas Miss Dovita was watchin me with the kind of a light in her eyes that boded me no bad So after that when I went to bustin bronchos I managed to do it not so faraway from the house but them as had eyes could see the operation without any assistance from a spyglass Theres nothin an Irishman will fight so hard for as somethin he can get and I was workin overtime for a decent word from the lady who neednt have been so proud over the maternal end of her beginnings dont ye see Well in two or three months or may be it was four down comes a fine lookin feller with elegant ways who had a let ter to Maguire He was thinkin of ranching it he said and wanted a chance to learn the business Would Maguire take him on as a hand just for experi ence Of course Maguire takes him on gives him the big spare room and doesnt boss him around like he does me but leaves him to do as he pleases This fellerJohnson was his nametook- to the cattle business right smart for all he was a tenderfoot and a poor rider But after a while I noticed that he spent considerable more time Iin the house with Miss Dovita than out on the range with the cattle Things went on like this for a few weeks when one day I noticed on Dovitas finger a diamond ring One look at it showed me that it was my own jewel jith the funny little flaw in it that Id taken from me that night in Kansa Whats the maflH Martin says she Have you seen t thost Not unless diamonds have immortal souls I says but I have seen that stone before With that she blushed for she wasnt so dark but that roses could show in her cheeks Might I ask where you got it I saysShe looked mad and said something about mindiu my own business Its my own business I says blunt like for that diamond happens to be belonging to me If she was mad before she was raging now She called me a liar to me face and said that Mr Johnson had given itI to her So youre goin toj marry him I says and she blurts out that Mr Johnson and her papa was goin1 into partnership le in a way and that tilie was in the bargain I run down to the stable and there was old Maguire and Johnson I seen Johnson take out a pocketbook and pick memorandum out of it It was m- own pocketbook I walks up to him and saysI congratulate you on your engage went to Miss Dovita says I The devil you do he says lookin at me like I was a yeller dog Thank ye he says Thats a fine ring ye gave her I says might I ask where ye got m None of your business says he flarin upINo says I nor its none of my business where ye got that pocketbook naither only they belong to me Whats the meanin of all this says Maguire openiu his eyes The mans crazy says Johnson but he looked mighty white around the gillsBad cess to yesays I Its not your fault Im not after the crack on the cocoanut ye gave me awhile back in Kansas City Then old Maguire begins to get next to the facts of the case I never was in Kansas City says Johnson lookin uncomfortable Sure then youll soon have that pleasure says I an Ill be your escort And with that I pulls my gun Go easy says old Maguire lies the one that had better go easy says I Take his gun from him See here says Johnson youre talkin bosh Im out of the jurisdiction of loth Kansas and Missouri and only a United States marshal can touch me So youve studied that out ye blackguard I says Well jurisdiction o- no jjurisdiction I touch ye me bucko and youll be within the jurisdiction of Kansas City before another night if I have to haul you along with a lariat Thats kidnapping says he Sure youre na kid says I

churchyard of Leek in Staffordshire England From that position the top of a mountain known as the Cloud breaks the line of sight and fully intercepts your view of the setting of the sun This mountain is six miles distant as the crow flies from the town of Leek and owing to its peculiar formation causes the sun when it has entered that sign of the zodiac known as Cancer which happens when we are about half way through the year to produce the strange effect of setting twice daily The first time that it sets the town sinks into darkness and the inhabitants light up their houses and shops in the
