E 1 KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN VOLUME VIIINO 19 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY MAY 10 1902 PRICE FIVE CENTS GALLED HIGHER Peaceful Passing Away of Most Roy Michael Augustine Corrigan The Revered Head of the Oath 0 lic Archdiocese of New York Was a Tower of Strength to Catholic EducotlonoDlI Progress HIS RECOVERY WAS LOOKED FOR I So unexpected that despite his severe illness it might be termed sudden the Most Reverend Michael Augustine Cor rigan Archbishop of the Metropolitan See of New York died at twenty minutes after eleven oclock Monday night Improved to such a degree that his physicians had told him earlier in the day that he would be able to sit up Tuesday for a time the end was due to heart failure None of his physicians was present but at the bedside were bis two brothers and all the members of his household He passed away peacefully and without a struggle retaining con sciousness until he sank iinto the coma which preceded death Ona recent visit to Washington whither he went to at tend a meeting of the Council of the Catholic University of which he was a member the Archbishop contracted a severe cold He was in Washington and when he returned to New York he was suffering from pneumonia He passed the crisis a few days before but remained so weak that his physicians were de pressed especially as he remained listless and showed no interest in affairs of the world But he had improved and he and his doctors and friends were san guine of his recovery Father Curley who was the Arch bishops Secretary sat with him most of the evening chatting now and then when the Archbishop wished to con verse Others of the household were present as well and not one of them had any reason for apprehension that the reverend prelate was not on the path to strength and health But soon after 1030 oclock they were disheartened by a decided change in the patient There was no evidence of pain but the Arch bishop without a struggle seemed to sink into a deep coma just as if he were falling into sleep There was no indica tion that he was in pain but inasmuch as before this he had been in high spirits considering his ailment all who were at the bedside became alarmed With his brothers at each side of the bed holding the hands of the dying pre late Father Lavelle the rector of the Cathedral read the prayers of the church for the dying while the others wept silently Not a word did the Archbishop utter The end was as peaceful and as easy as if he were indeed asleep Ten minutes after the end came Dr Keys reached the house He was amazed to learn that death had come so swiftly and after an examination he said that it was due to heart failure to excessive weak ness and a failure to rally from the ravages of pneumonia Heartfelt expressions of grief were received from His Holiness Pope Leo and the leading church dignitaries of all denominations throughout the entire United States by whom Archbishop Corrigan was held in the highest respect Meetings of all the Catholic societies of New York were held and appropriate action taken The remains lay in state in St Patricks Cathedral until the funeral Friday morning and were viewed by hundreds of thousands They were constantly attended by a guard of honor from the Sixtyninth regiment the Cath olic Club Knights of Columbus and t other organizations The funeral ser vices began Thursday night with the office for the dead concluding Friday morning with the solemn high mass of requiem for the dead The sermon was preached by Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia and the funeral was one of the largest ever seen in New York With Bishop Farley abroad and Bishop McDonnell of Brooklyn in Rome it is likely that the Pope will appoint the latter as the administrator of the New York archdiocese until a successor to the Archbishop has been chosen Mean while the administration of the archdiocese will devolve on Monsignor Joseph F Mooney Vicar General MACKIN COUNCIL Pays Tribute to the Memory- of Late Archbishop Corrigan The meeting of Mackin Council YM I was fairly attended Tuesday evening Only buneMrequlring immediate con sideration was brought forward The committee having in charge the June outing reported progress but

interesting Will Daly Louis Keifer Jr and a number of other well known young men are expected to be present for initiation and it is rumored that following the conferring of the degrees they will be tendered a pleasing I surprise During the past month Mackin I I has added quite handsome sums to its jii successiought continues as at present the new hall is only a question of some months The present administration is making an ex cellent record and every member should lend his assistance in continuing the good work MAJOR RIDGE Receives a Handsome Gold Badge From His Citi zen Friends Major Patrick Ridge night Chief of Police and as efficient an officer its ever wore a shield in the Lousisville police department was given a most gratifying and highly merited surprise by about 200 of his citizen admirers last Monday even ing Only a short time ago a number of gentlemen residing In the East End determined to show their appreciation of his long and faithful service and recent promotion and at an informal gathering of citizens Messrs Edward J Dalton John M Henuessy Walter Metcalfand Thomas Camfield were appointed a com inlttee to determine the manner of giving effect to their wishes Their suggestion that they present the genial Chief with a gold badge was unanimously con curred in and representative men from all parts of the city were anxious to sub scribe to the fund The presentation was made by Col John Day School Trustee for the First Ward Col Day referred to the high esteem in which Major Ridge was held by all classes of citizens but especially those belonging to the Democratic party Always ready for duty day andnight he had been a faithful and zealous officer and the unfortunate whose arrest was necessary always felt in friendly hands if the officer happened to be Pat Ridge Col Day spoke of the bravery of the officer and his uniform gentlemanly bearing telling ofa number who had been saved by his firmness and kind treatment No man on the Louisville force was more worthy the recognition given which was a source of prideto his 1 MAJOR PAT RIDGE host of friends in the East End Then pinning the handsome badge which is studded with diamonds upon the Chiefs breast he expressed the hope that his face might ever remain as bright as the diamonds which sparkled before them all The badge is one of the most beauti ful ever made and was greatly admired by all the Chiefs attendiug the conven tion now being held here Major Ridge became a member of the force in August 1893 under Mayor Jacob When Mayor Tyler came into office he was promoted to Lieutenant and under Mayor Grainger he became Assistant Chief of the Louisville police force an honor which he richly deserved Pat Ridge is unpretentious in demeanor but a better policeman does not exist because in addition to great ability he possesses a kind aud human heart and can discriminate between the victim of misfortune and the real criminal The shield will be worn with honor to the department and the generous friends who presented it HOSPITAL OPENED The new St Anthonys Hospital hiss been opened and already several patients are being tenderly cared for Tht good Sisters feel grateful to the citizens

Wonderful Career of the Most Rev Michael Augustine Corrigan He Cared Little For Luxuries But Enjoyed His Dally Walk HARD AND INDEFATIGABLE WORKER Michael Augustine Corrigan was born in Newark New Jersey N J The house in which he was born was for a long time one of the quaint landmarks of the city It was a center of attraction for farmers who came to town to market and to buy supplies It stood in Market street just east of Broad The store was that of John Corrigan a native of Ire land who had come to America to seek his fortune Upstairs his wife Mary kept the house while he on the ground floor conducted the general store Here the future Archbishop was born August 13 1839 nearly sixtythree years ago He was the the third son and the fourth child The future prelate was an unusual child from his earliest infancy Truly be was unlike other boys He rarely associated with his boyish acquaintances in their play but kept much to himself He was as modest and retiring as a girl As soon as he was old enough he de veloped a great love of reading and spent hours together poring over his booksThe streets of Newark in the vicinity of his home the very heart of the busy section of Newark today was the scene of the coming Archbishops boyhood He grew up a rather frail pale lad devoted to his books and caring nothing at all for playHe had been christened at old St Johns and Patrick Kearney had stood as his godfather When the boy got old enough he went to school to Kearney Kearney took a special pride in him and was fond of declaring that he would be a great man some day Michael was cut out for something not wordly said he He is going to be a priest and a great one top1 The boy was a phe nomenal student and went rapidly ahead of his schoolfellows When he still was a schoolboy his parents determined that be must be well educated and given an opportunity to become the great man that every one predicted he was going to beThey sent him to St Marys at Wil mington Del Here the young student distinguished himself indeed A mere stripling just out of the parish school he quickly mastered the classics and took nearly all the prizes He captured first prize for hit Latin thesis the second Greet prize and won honorable mention in many other studies When he was J 1 J c i sixteen he was sent to the llarger school of St Marys at Emmettsburg Md to continue his studies Here he won more honors He cared nothing for athletics or outdoor sports but devoted his time to study and preparation He w always of a grave and religious turn olmihd While he was at the Emmettsburg school his hard study broke down his health Ills devotion to books to the exclusion of outdoor life had weakened his healt 1and he had to leave school He was sent abroad to travel for a year and to recover his health He traveled in Ireland and Switzerland visiting the native place of his father and mother He came back in rugged health andre sumed his place in the school He was graduated at twenty with the honors of his class It was a proud day for the Corrigans when their son came out of the school with the best record ever made at the famous old school from which so many famous church prelates had come Young Corrigan was sent directly to Rome there to begin serious preparation for his future work His sister Catherine went with him He entered the American school and buckled down to his studies In the atmosphere of the ancient city he received the final prepara tions for his work and was graduated with the highest honors In Rome the young student was ordained to the priest hood for the New York diocese on Nov 19 1863 Impressed by all the years of his training and his solemn nature with the gravity of his mission the young man returned to America to take up his work Fortune took him right back to Newark his native city which was then in the territory of the New York diocese His achieve ments in school had won a big name for him and the youthful priest bad a reputation already made for him when he began his work in Newark His first work as a priest was among the people who had known him as a boy and loved him and loved his father and mother It was not long before the young scholar was recognized He was soon Vice President of Setou Hall Col lege In 1868 he became the bead of the college and was made Vicar General of the diocese It was in this capacity that Monsignor Corrigan attracted the atten tion of Cardinal McCloskey then the high prelate of the New York diocese Ills youth earnestness and deep relig ious feeling greatly impressed the Cardi nal whom in later years he was destined to succeed- It was by quick steps that he rose to be Bishop of Newark It happened when Archbishop Bailey was called to be Bishop of Baltimore Before he left Archbishop Bailey had been a great friend of Monsignor Corrigan The con secration of the young Bishop took place in the Cathedral at Newark May 4 1873 Rarely perhaps has there ever happened in this country a more impressive conse cartion Present were high church dig nitaries from all over the country and the impressive ceremonies possessed a significance and a meaning not possessed by the usual ceremony pF the kind It was the crowning event it might be said of the young priests life for here in his native city among his own people he was made Bishop of Newark At the time he was the youngest man ever to receive similar honors He was then only thirtyfour His splendid work in cpNTINUKU ON SHCOHD J AOq I I d 4ii r SIXTY Candidates Will Be InitiatedI Into Knights of Colum bus Sunday Louisville Council and Dr Hart Will

a learned theologian and churchman able n executive and thorough managerr of public affairs as evidenced by the great progress perfect unity and prosperous condition of allI church matters under his control including over a million people several hundred churches lleges hospitals asylums and other insti tutions was a very humble man He rarely appeared in public avoided all display disliked notori ety and seldom could be induced to even express an opinion on mat i ters of public note Even in the discharge of his duties he preferred the quiet and fatherly way He was devoted to duty in his position as priest Bishop and Archbishop and his promotions came to him unexpectedly and were accepted iin obedience to his superiors Though Bishop of Newark when Arch bishop McCloskey died he was not among those named to succeed him I rbutwas appointed by Rome At tached to his diocese and loved by his people he obeyed the summons and entered upon the control of the most populous and wealthiest dio cese and province on the continent How well in his unostentatious earnest and kindly way he dis charged his laborious mission iisI attested by the growth and ad vancement in all church work iinI his jurisdiction THE LEAGUES DEFT William Redmond M P whoI has made a tour of the North and Middle West in the interest of the Irish National League sails for 4 Ireland next week He is elated over the success of his mission and the growth and strength of the League in this country which he says already numbers more than with every prospect of 4doubling that Since the Irish Land League under Parnell n I movement in behalf of Ireland has met with such ready response and assistance in all parts of the world and so generally and harmoniously united the Irish people at home and abroad It is a strictly legal political move relying upon the law and legislation as its weapons and means of defense and redress It appeals to all includes all classes even landlords in Ireland is strong in Australia is growing in Canada and has taken hold and is spreading in Scotland and England where fully half its members are not Irish Never before in Irelands history have the Irish people and friends i of Ireland the world over been so united in behalf of Irish right and justice In Ireland it is supreme in control of the people despite the disfavor and coercion of the govern ing power which earnestly desires and is seeking its suppressionnot 1bylawl for it is not an unlawful organization not by force for it is not disorderly nor revolutionary A Were the League or its methods in any sense illegal it would be promptly stamped outregardless of the extremes necessary and in deed but for its strength in tree lland and elsewhere its influence would be curtailed and its existence terminated upon some pretext But for once a united people legally resisting oppression and demanding redress of grievances by respecting and acting under the u very laws which oppress them 1have won the

Neither is ii- I it willing to meet the question a proposed and sought by the League in the manner prescribed by British lawby appeal to all the people by trial in court and decision by the higher court by act of Parlia meat The League has assumed the aggressive along these lines not only in Ireland but throughoutt the British Empire In Ireland where coercion is resorted to and people imprisoned though it is for their connection with the League or attending its meetings the charges are disorderly jurisdiction confined to two magistrates and not appealable The League pro tests and defies the government to prefer a charge involving the char acter of the League or the right off the people to join it or take part iinI its meetings But this would raise questions of law appealable to higher courts for review and dicis ion and the government has nott condemned nor attacked the League openly nor directly thoughI arrests and imprisonment for dis order continue even in counties where for several terms the Judges of the quarterly courts have been presented with the traditional1 white gloves there being not aI criminal case on the docket and notl a prisoner in jailexcept the victims of coercion The govern ment seems to dread a decision of its own courts upon the legality o its coercive proceedings In the Parliamentary elections the Government candidates are likewise evasive but the Irish ques tion has been made an issue in re cent elections in Scotland andwill be hereafter throughout the Em Thoughothe Government evades trial of the case on its legal merits in its mutts though the Irish question is dodged by Ministers held back by the Government excluded by arbitrary rules and rulings in Parliament it must be met in the courts in Parliament or on appeal and discussion before the people in election campaigns The League claims under the laws of Great Britain the right ol the people to organize hold meetings petition and seek redress olf grievances Having so organized they hold meetings have petitione- for anti are seeking such redress They protest against interference with their meetings by Government officials and they insist upon a hearing consideration and decision of their protests and petitions to which they are entitled under the lawICertainly a bold yet a just stand It puts the British Government to a test as to rights of it subjects not only in Ireland but even inI I England The boasted Magna Charta is in the balance and it Is not to be decided by the coppers the crowbar brigade nor musketry and bayonetsthe Government I dare not The League and the I Irish people respect and obey the law they simply in the manner I prescribed by law reek amendment I or repeal of laws oppressive and 1 burdensome This is no offense j

in the church like they are in poloticsby hustle scramble pull and influence Archbishop Corrigan had not been den a day when newspapers began t mention his probable successor and ina week had figured it out ttio certainty Well Archbishops of the Catholic Church are not see lected in that way There Is no need of any hurry 4 as the affairs of the Archdiocese of New York will1 be looked after by an executor named before the Archbishop death and will continue so until1 his successor iis consecrated andj 1takes charge The preliminaryI steps to the appointment of this successor have not been taken and- S may not be for some time There are no candidates nor will there be The Bishops of the archdio cese will select three names a worthy of the position and Romee appoints with the wide world andI thousands to select from The appointee I may never have been men tioned nor thought of it himself as was the case of the deceased pre late he may not desire it may humbly petition to be excused but excepting where good and sufficient reasons can be given must accept Not much like the way indicated 1by the newspapers So all thiss newspaper gossip aboqt the next Archbishop of New York is simply news concocted by the enter prising uewsgatherer and though none of it is true it is lharmless and makes interesting reading without giving the slightest clew to Arch bishop Corrigans successor GAMBLING The April grand jury report that gambling is being carried on in the city of Louisville does not in our opinion admit ofa doubt Well he who doubts it must be 1blind deaf and daffy The present law against gambling can not be enforced that is clear regardless f the why and wherefore The and result is that a few monopolize the game and they in turn are bled by anfblackmailers to enable them to evade the lawand gambling goes merrily on the stingent law to the contrary notwithstanding- If there is to be gambling it seems there will always be iin this cityinstead of seeking to sup press it which can not be done iit would be better to permit it under heavy license and strict police reg ulations insuring open houses honest games good order and the exclusion of the criminal class This would bring to the city and State a large revenue strip gam bling of most of its evil and de moralizing effects and enable the authorities with the cooperation of the gamblers obeying the law to control and regulate what can not be eradicated It would not cost the gamblers any more if as much as the present system would yield andd throw certain lawyerscompound- ers of felonyloafers criminals and blackmailers out of a job Those who live off the gamblers I under the present law are far worse more immoral and danger ous to the communiny than the gamblers whom they befriend only to bleedand some of them stand high socially rank well financially and nearly all wear good clothes the price of their shielding the gamblers from the law the enforce went of which they prevent by any and every

with it the right to succession to the Cardinal In October 1880 dI andyears uponi the death of Cardinal McCloskey he succeeded to the highest position the one off chief authority in the diocese of New York After that he was still further honored by being appointed assistant t ThronedIn his more than twenty years of se vice in New York Archbishop Corrigan did great work for his diocese It wa all done quietly and modestly but most effectively He completely rehabilitated the parochial school system This wa the outcome of his strong belief that Catholic children so far as possible should be taught in Catholic schools This did rot mean that he was opposed to the public schools but he thought that the groundwork of the Catholic religion was in the training of children Under his administration then the parochial schools were completely rehabili tated As a monument to his work he conceived the idea of building the great seminary at Dunwoodie He started the work in 1891 In the next two or three years and during the very hardest times he collected 700000 for the building His success in such stringent times wa due alone to the great earnestness with which he prosecuted the work Characteristic of him and of his great modesty was the manner in which he gave 100000 to the seminary The money was left to him as a legacy by a relative He quietly donated the entire amount to the school Not a single word did he ever say to the world about it A few intimate friends closely connected with the hproject knew about it When one of these friends the matter leaked out the Archbishop who ever disliked publicity or notoriety was greatly dis tressed He felt embarrassed lest iit might appear that he in some way might have been instrumental in letting fit be known In 1808

to which he turns for comfort It is equally true that nothing shows ones estimate of Another more than the sort of comfort ore offers him This is shown in the way different persons deal with a child that is hurt One talks about the hurt exclaims over it caresses and pities Another apparently disregards the hurt or makes light of it and seeks at once to OCCUpy the child with something else until he forgets his pain and laughter takes the place of tears Often the child would hardly think of his hurt were not his mind fixed on it by supposed sym pathy But that is the truest sympathy which seeks to spare him not BO muchii the suffering of the hurt as the suffering of thinking of it and the emotional die urbance and nervous weakening which eotflalntlalicfears j I n IJ K UOKYIJU AlMERXOAN tt H

While his return was not expected so soon neverthe less the joy of seeing him once again was all the greater If the warmth of each heart that pulsates with love for our kind lovable Father Kelleher

The May altar scintillatedwith numberless lights the crowning point of which was an arch and to one standing afar off it presented a grand sight and made our thought take flight to the throne on high

cording to time honored belief imparts to those that wish it a peculiar style of eloquence or great skill in the use of complimentary terms There is an interesting bit of legendary lore connected with the stone About the middle of the fifteenth century so the legend runs Cormac McCarthy the builder of the fortress chanced one day to save a queer old woman from drowning Deeply grateful to her gallant rescuer the old woman offered him a tongue so eloquent that his influence over men and women friends and foes should be irresistible- To obtain the wonderful gift of elo quence she instructed McCarthy to climb to the top of the castle and kiss a specified stone He unhesitatingly fol lowed her instructions and the moment he kissed the stone he became golden mouthed as the woman had promised Ever since that day people have been anxious to kiss the Blarney stone To do so however is a feat not easily ac complished for the stone is at the bot tom of the cornice The cornice is nearly seven feet deep and projects three feet beyond the main wall Some years ago it dropped out but was at once put back in place and secured to the cornice by means of two heavy iron rods Blarney castle once belonged to the earls of Clancarthy Taken as a whole the castle is at the present day in a good state of preservation SOME NOTED IRISHMEN Chief Justice P C Smyly of Sierra Leone Africa is the youngest

Philadelphia In his sermon Friday morning at the funeral of the late Archbishop Corrigan at St Patricks Cathedral Archbishop Ryan said Your Eminence Venerable Fathers of the Episcopate and Clergy and Dear Brethren of the Laity How Impressive lq Its eloquence of sllenco is this scene and how salutary In its lessons Behold before you today a great priest who In his day pleased God and was found just Behold him clothed in the vestments of his order as he stood at the altar to offer sacrifice and prayer for you and yours He preaches his last sermon from that funeral pulpit But yesterday I may say he proclaimed the great con servative Christian truths which alone can preserve society from socialism and anarchy Being dead he yet speak eth In the eloquence of highest example For two purposes then are we here this morningto honor the dead and pray for the dead As the public Jour nals have already given in detail the biography of the late Archbishop It Is not necessary that I should repeat it nut the external actions of men are not adequate evidences of their real worth It is the inner life of motive and purity of intention and disinterested sacrifice that constitute the greatness of good ness Oreat deeds inspired by ambition and tinted with vanity count as noth ing before God and very soon sink into Insignificance and are forgotten by men- The world knows its weakness and honors the magnanimity that despises Its prelate of action was to please God and benefit not merely please his fellowman Hero you find the secret of his love of soli dallyhearignore the true philosophy of sanctity priestsdidthis twentieth century we need not as cetics but sturdy public men The truth Is we need the combination of both but If they are pot found united the ascetic Is preferable The man who acts and prays as the ascetic at home will be the most successful churchman In public The purity of motive of our beloved and holy de ceased friend was also the key to his most laborious life He worked for God and in ills presence and never thought tie could do enough I know from per sonal observation how extraordinary were his labors He performed them not only with patience but almost with boyish enthusiasm Some one has said that en thusiasm Is out of place In advanced age and that it belongs to youth alone No it belongs to motive alone Toe young fired by the enthusiasm of ambition or love or higher still human philan thropy are all aflame until their ends are accomplished When ambition and love are satiated or dead from disap pointment when philanthropy Is chilled by the baseness and ingratitude of those befriended enthusiasm dies but as God can never change and the ambition to serve and love Him and aid our brothers in distress for His sake must be perma nent as Himself the enthusiasm of the true Christian becomes perennial Hence Tortulllan In the second century called the old Christian men boys senes puerl Hence also the fortitude of the de ceased when circumstances called for Its exercise The three Archbishops of this great See were types of different char acteristic virtues The most Rev John Hughes stands out as the most striking exemplification of courage when courage was much needed Cardinal McCloskey was distinguished for his marvelous pru dence by which lie conquered without fighting Archbishop Corrigan seemed to belong rather to the Cardinal McClosTcey class of men but when principle was In volved he was as immovable as Arch bishop Hughes Iris motto Dominus petra urea the Lord Is my rock was first that of the meek but brave patriarch Moses The Archbishop himself was asa rock moesy and yielding on the Wr face but beneath firm Md Immovable Ha was brave with the courage of God for whom alone he acted and suffered Nisi humility seemed to make him timid I know on the telUmpsr of Cardinal ileCIosbey that he did all In his power to prevent MB name bbing set to Rone for the dignity of AretibUbep of New York tie feared UIafrrrepossibllity- u 1 N u So did some of the greatest Bishops that ever lived but when they had to accept tho office they became the bravest So did St Ambrose who afterward resisted the Roman Emperor Theodoslua anfi St Thomas of Becket who braved the anger of the English King Henry II In the combination of gentle modesty and fear less fortitude the Christian Bishop should follow his great model the shepherd and Bishop of our souls Jesus Christ What after all Is death to such ia man as this What but a liberation on Illumination a union A liberation from most pressing duties and responsibilities an Illumination when the light of Gods face shall shine upon him and he will hold the solutions ot the great problems of life and the length and breadth and height and depth of Gods love and ia union with the divine original after whom he was formed My spouse when wilt thou take ma to thyself was the cry of St Peter of Alcantara Oh eternal and most sacred God who path given to plenitudesofthem grant to us who remain but ia little longer after him that we may benefit by his example and be united to him In Thee for all eternity through Christ our Lord Amen MACKIN OUTING Tomorrow afternoon at

rinse with clear water Warm water and castile soap with a thorough rinsing after they are taken out of the suds is excellent for washing out white silk handkerchiefs The best way to set the dye of black lisle thread hose is to put a couple of good pinches of common salt in the water you wash the hose in To clean marble floors stairs and all woodwork add a tablespoonful of borax to a pint of hot water and use a flannel of soft rag If very dirty add a small quantity of borax soap Nuts are excellent for the woman wh is not very strong Cranks they call those persons who subsist largely upoi nuts and raisins but there is much method in their madness Raisins un good particularly for children- In the summer the neck is apt to get very much browner than the shoulder and the difference is very marked when s lownecked dress is worn A very good remedy is to mix equal parts of lime water and lemon juice and apply several time a dayQuicklime absorbs dampness in closet or other damp places It is a good pla to have a plateful of this powder which will absorb the moisture and prevei mildew It will be necessary to rene the lime from time to time as of cours it loses its effect Sweets it must be

The spring race meeting inaugurated last Saturday under the auspices of the New Louisville Jockey Club is thus far the most successful ever held in Churchill Downs Good fields liberal odds by the bookies and close finishes have been the features of the days sport This after noon the Clark handicap will be run and with favorable wentber this race should surpass the Derby and attract equally as large an attendance There will be six races each day next week when many new flyers will be seen here for the first time The attendance of ladies has been most gratifying and every arrangement possible was made for their comfort Col Schulte and Secretary Dressen arc elated over the results thus far and our citizens should not fail to visit the Downs and witness the sport provided for them Next Thursday the Bluegrass Stakes will be run and great interest is already felt in the result many of the best horses entered at this meet coming to the post then The Bashford Manor Stakes for twoyearold coltr will be run Tuesday and the Nursery Stakes on Saturday Six races are run every day making a great card HINTS ON STYLE Boas like hats are as varied as mate rials and taste can make them so any thing which has the prescribed outline and is becoming will pass the muster lineThe pongee gown is going to flourish this season not only in its natural color but in white and pale green the latter a most novel shade which seems to give an extra gloss The boxplaited skirt and the skirt with inverted box plaits are both used for foulards the latter being especially pretty for the simple foulard made for morning wear Very effective is a large hat made of a silver gauze braid dropped with black lace with long ends of the lace hanging at the back and for flowers many close deepred roses Small checks appear this spring in a variety of colorings both in silk and wool Brown and white tan and white and green and white are the leading colors but the size of the check varies Cool and dainty is a summer hat of tucked white mull the crown of this material of a tam shape the rim of the tucked mull andvol lace and over laid with long sprays of a fine white flowerThe bands of the summer gowns should be transparent if possible but this is a very trying style A dainty bit of color introduced in tiny bands of silk or in some variation of embroidery will make them becoming The great prominence which taffeta has among the new materials gives an other suggestion of the oldtime pictures You see it flowered striped and plain also in the various tints combinedwhich change in the light like a chameleon Changeable effects have been revived and they are considered very smart Even the veilings are changeable and there are more changeable moires and foulards and all sorts of odd effects made by using a contrasting lining under the transparent materials The fashion of lace top gloves and lace mitts that was started last summer is to be universally adopted upon the advent of warm weather Besides being orna mental the exclusive use of elbow sleeves I for warm weather makes them absolutelyI necessary and they will be generally r lWoro by smartly dressed women Black and white are favored to the exclusion ofr colorsThe belt is the most important adjunct to a womans costume and is shown in many variations A womans style and I height should be taken into considera I tion when making a selection Few 3 figures can afford to be cut in two with a belt of a contrasting color and the I woman who is not fashionably tall and short waisted has her belt of the same material as her gown or of silk of the same color For wear with a short waist the most stylish belt is one of black t taffeta with large eyelets in the back through which taffeta ribbon is run and laced to fit the figure STEVE KEELYS EUCHRE l Steve Keely will give his third annual euchre at Fountain Perry Park Thursday afternoon and evening May 22 The euchres given by Mr Keely in the past have
