I wd KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN VOLUME VIIINO 25 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JUNE 21 1902 PRICE FIVE CENT HER TRUE POSITION Catholic Church a Friendly Critic of Public School System Always Fostered Education of the People to Their Elevation Students of College of City of New York Visit the Cathedral REV FATHER DOYLB SPEAKS PLAINLY A departure from the established order of the College of the City of New York r was made Saturday when the members of the graduating class went to a Roman Catholic church to listen to a baccalau reate address by a priest St Patricks Cathedral was the church and the Rev Alexander P Doyle of the Paulist Fathers was the speaker At 1030 in the morning the 204 young men of the graduating class marched into the Cathedral and took seats on either side of the main aisle which had been set apart for them Already an audience of rela tives and friends which fairly filled the body of the Cathedral had assembled The occasion was an unusual one and bad been brought about in this way A committee from the college called upon Father Doyle several weeks ago and invited him to deliver the baccalaureate address to the class of 02 He accepted the invitation on the condition that the exercises might be held iu the Cathedral and with Archbishop Corrigans con sent The matter was then laid before Father Michael J Lavelle rector of the Cathedral who placed it before the late Archbishop Archbishop Corrigan con sented readily and expressed his approval of tbe plan He would have been an interested listener yesterday had he been alive In the course of his address Father Doyle explained the attitude of the Roman Catholic church toward the public school system He said in part Itis both a pleasure and a duty that is conferred on me this morning It is a pleasure to be invited to deliver the first baccalaureate sermon to the young I gentlemen of the College of the City of New York from the pulpit of the Catholic cathedral church of this city It is my duty to say to you some words that will so touch your hearts at this auspicious time as you are casting aside the tram mels of the schoolroom and facing the larger liberties of life that they will help to make you better men more keenly appreciative of the responsibilities of life and more eager in the attainment of the high purposes which your training and education have established within your hearts If there be any special signifi cance in your gathering beneath the arches of this great cathedral and under the auspices of the great Catholic church it is the reiteration and reaffirmation of a principle so very well known by the world at large and yet at times begrudgingly admitted and sometimes even denied by some of our professional educatorsit is the profound and practi cal sympathy the Catholic church pos sesses for the great educational agencies of the world The Catholic church has assumed a critical aspect toward the public school system in these United States though not a hostile one I would have you mark the striking difference between these words It is the privilege of friends to criticise it is the part pf enemies to antagonize What the public school sys tem stands for that is a system of educa Lion whereby all the children of the common people may enjoy the oppor tunities of intellectual development this principle the Catholic church does now maintain and has always maintained as a vital principle of her policy among the nations of the earth By her teachings she bans ignorance and illiteracy and places them in the category of things that degenerate and brutalize while on the other hand she makes adequate knowledge a steppingstone to the vesti bule of the temple of faith No one may enter there unless he has passed over this royal road and climbed the mystic way and is able to stand a test of the knowl edge that the laws of the church provide The attitude of the Catholic church too ward education is summed up in the following statement As man is a being composed of body mind and conscience a sound system of education to do its best work must endeavor to develop all three with equal effort If it does not if it neglects one or the other it creates a oneaided being and as a tree that grows on one side can not stand the stress of the storm the product of a onesided education does not make the material of which lasting republics are built The Catholic church does commend the public school system and is not in any f sense hostile to its highest purposes but 1 it takes the liberty to say as is the right of every one who lives in this laud it does not go far enough when it bans the idea of soul when it bars the conceRt of God when it excludes the training of the highest nature man has In aseu- miilgthlseritlcslattltudethe church is no more hostile to the public schools as a system of popular education than were J 1 F L the millions of devoted soldiers who fought and bled that the Constitution of the United States might be so amended that every one in this broad land may enjoy the right of manhood and suffrage no matter what his race or origin or his previous condition of servitude And w believe the day is not far distant whe the great men of our country who have the highest interests at heart will turn their attention to the solution of this great problem The gathering unde- these auspices this morning will affirm our sympathy with the great educational agencies of the country and will hasten the day when they will reach their high est perfection HIBERNIAN JUBILATION Five Divisions Will Witness the Initiation Thurs day Night The union

unity as exists now in the County Board The Hibernians of Louisville are now awake and doing much to increase the strength of the order The report for Jefferson county would com pare with that of any

of life long before they reach the age of man hood and womanhood Judge Gregory and County Attorney Kirby should exercise great care in the granting of permits otherwise they will render the law invalid frCATHOLIC KNIGHTS I J- II Important Matters Discussedt at Meeting of Cer ral- Committee iof vThere absent when President Veeneniah called to order the monthly meeting of the Central Committee of the Catholic knights of America at St Marls Hall It was a business meeting from start to finish and a splendid example wasset for the branches The proposed change in the laws making officers ineligible after two terms was defeated This was a nice compliment to Messrs Veeneuian Mc Ginn Score and Rapp whose efficient work has done much to bring the Central Committee to its present powerful standing Jack Murphy and Jonathan Thickstuu delegates from Jeffersonville lInvited the committee and all branches to the cen tennial celebration over the liver Mon day Chairman McGinns retort while not complete showed the jubilee cele bration to have been a satisfactory finan cial success Supreme Trustee Smith whb had just returned from the meeting of the Board of Trustees at St Louis gave a synopsis of the proceedings of tht body He also made a forceful and eloquent talk for the disability fund which Is meeting with increased favor everywhee The contest for prizes for members was

Veeneman appointed the following gentlemen a committee to devise ways and means for the proposed excursion Messrs John Fackler Michael Reichert Jonathan Thickstun John Schalda James OCon GinnTheFccessive those meetings would be reported to their branches Regular attendance is re quired from all otherwise their names will be dropped UNCONSTITUTIONAL Drewry Law Increasing Pay of Firemen Can Not Be Enforced The Drewry act passed by the last Legislature creating a firemans pension fund and increasing the pay of those re ceiving the largest salaries has been de clared unconstitutional insofar as it relates to the latter and City Attorney Stone says the law can not be enforced According to a recent decision of the Court of Appeals only the General Coun cil has the right to fix the salaries of members of the fire department The Drewry act provided for an increase in the payroll of 8073 a year distributed among the officers from Captain to Chief giving the latter an additional 1000 per year but none of the 8000 was to go to the six or seven other members of the companies There was quite a feeling at the time because of this discrimination and many hoped the Ilaw would be knocked but therefor Col Stone is of opinion that the part relating to pensions will stand and that the General Council may enact the law increasing salaries but when this is at tempted a more equitable distribution must certainly be made to secure its passage It is intimated that an ordinance will soon be introduced providing for the pay as in the Drewry act but unless all members of the department are recognized an earnest effort will be made to secure its defeat It is about time the men who run the greatest risks and do the real work at fires are given some recognition UNFOUNDED The rumor that Hugh J Higgins son of the publisher of the Kentucky Irish American had joined the navy was without any foundation whatever Its author has not been discovered which gives it the semblance of a poor joke The young man feels perfectly satisfied with his present position and says Ken tucky has too many attractions for him to think of leaving FISH BIT WELL knowntTraegere a popular employe of

Manner ACADEMY ADMIRED BY ITS FRIENDS The annual commencement exercises of the Presentation Academy were held Monday morning at 10 oclock The programme was the best of the year and surpassedany that

pieces and songs in par ticular gave evidence of the elevated taste of those who selected them and the rendition of the same by the pupils speaks for the excellent training they received The opening

FRIEND STILL AT IT The London villifiers are stilt r after Gov Taft and the Vatican in Rome Besides sending false re ports to the English and American papers they are also publishing falsehoods in the Italian papers in Rome Gov Taft last week noti fied the Pope that an interview purporting to come from him pub lished in a Rome paper was wholly untrue as he had given no inter view or statement whatever for publication and would not do so The object of Gov Tafts mis sionthe settlement of the status of the church and church property iin the Philippipeswas officially announced from Washington He is in Rome has been received at the Vatican and the matter is under negotiation being referred to a special commission of Cardinals This is all that is known or is likely to be known till a decision is reached or at least till Gov Taft reports to Washington and the Government gives it to the public The Vatican authorities will pursue the same course w Diplomatic negotiations are not public not reported discussed nor settled by newspaper gossipand are generally considered nobodys business but those concerned- Notwithstanding these well known facts the London corre spondents in Rome would have the world believe everything is known to them and publish statements so glaringly false as to be absurd having not even a semblance of plausibility Thus a dispatch says that the Cardinals commission ten days after appointment have decided with one dissenting vote to reject the American proposition and insist on maintaining church affairs and property in the Philip pines as under Spanish rule and will so recommend to the Pope Later it is reported the Cardinals commission favor acceptance of the American proposition and the church lands will be sold to the United States Government but the Pope hesitates because the religious orders holding the lands object to the sale and may resist by court proceedings in Manila unless guar anteed prompt payment and a fair division of the proceeds among the respective orders And so on like improbable and contradictory state ments are sent out daily All these reports may be safely classed as untrue and only reveal the bigotry envy and bungling prevarication of the London press so unreasonable and incredible that it reacts as a boomerang The questions under negotiation are grave and important involving equity authority values property and the lives and morals of millions of people They can not be de cided hurriedly will require investi gation research conference and serious consideration for perhaps years The United States and the Vatican are doubtless fully com petent to attend to it satisfactorily and both seem disposed to do so regardless of suggestions and inter I ference from London ENGLISH PROGRESS The tenacity with which the English adhere to old customs and- o methods and which their egotist causes them to regard us the only right way is becoming more gener ally known It is undoubtedly the cause of Englands dropping behind in this progtessive age and often is so ridiculous as to make them the butt of ridicule as will befully illustrated by the ancient but now useless and meaningless titles officials functions and mum rtm CI meries of the coronation But they will stick to it with all the care and precision of their ancestors just as they do in everything else business includedIllustrative of this is a ceremonial in Parliament As a member enters the House of Commons he bows reverently three times toward the opposite end of the room One would naturally suppose he was bowing to the Speaker and officials but they may not be present and when they enter each likewise bows reverently three times The inquisitive American always wants to know the why and wherefor of everything So when an American saw this bowing to nothing he started inquiry as to what it meant Not a member of Parliament lie asked could enlighten him He finally traced it down through several centuries and found what it meantthenAt England was Catholic the functions of State and Church were united in Government ceremonies and administration and the meetings of Parliament were Held at night in the Cathedral Of course there was an altar on out side was a throne for the King who then usually attended meet ings of Parliament on the other side was the throne of the Bishop representing the church who also attended On entering the Parlia mentary hallthe churchthe members bowed reverently three timesto the altar the King the Bishop Times and everything with them have changed in these several hundred years England is no longer Catholic the King does not attend Parliament the Bishop of London even of the established church is only a peer of the realm Parliament now meets in a Govern ment hallnot a churchin which there is no altar and finally Catho lic forms of worship are classed by English law as idolatrous But iit is ancient custom and every mem ber of Parliament on entering the hall bows reverently three times tonothing AFTER THE WAR IS OVER The peace jubilations in Eng land have been followed with dis appointment and disgust The war is ended and the Boers are surrendering all right but the expected business boom does not materialize On the contrary the really desper ate strait of English affairs is be coming manifest at home Trade is depressed and industries idle for want of markets losses have been heavy debt hampers all money is scarce and interest rates high taxes high and will be higher which deters business ventures to increase trade Stocks and bonds are lower than for twenty years the market is controlled by specu lators and brokers who are anxious to start a boom and unload but fear to advance prices to do so lest foreign holders flood the market depress values further and perhaps buy controlling interests and thus Englishmen lose financially as well as the management of corporations Berlin capitalists holding Kaffir stockthe most valuable mines in South Africa before the Boer war are reported watching the London market closely to take advantage of one or the other opportunity either of which means disaster to English interests The profitt earn ing as well as the solvency of English corporations are subjects of surmise wbich neither enhances their valuer strengthens their credit nor encourages the trade outlook Add to this the well known fact that money is short with the Gov rl ernment and people as well consols at a discount and more must be issued nearly all corporations and business firms in debt and still bor rowing the Bank of England loans to the market last week reach ing 15000000 heavy taxes and more in prospect and the foundation of it all from which alone recuperation can come a de pressed harassed and losing trade that must be revived pushed ex tended to meet strong and success ful competition already encroach ing upon and crowding it This will require hustle new methods and moneyand where is the money to come from Not from England that is certain The realization of this dilemma causes the disappointment since the hopes of the results of peace vanished leaving only gloom and the fear growing that Englands trade is doomed or that its control and profits will pass to others The presence in England at this time of American German and French capitalists or their agents repre senting nearly every branch of finance commerce and industry is not to be accounted for by the ap proaching coronation ceremonies in which they seem to take only ordinary interest They all evince knowledge and seem to be taking inventories of English financial mercantile industrial railroad and shipping matters As they are all known to have or represent money and reputed as not averse to buy ing up bargains they ere regarded with apprehension giving rise to rumors of dickers and deals for the sale of almost anything but the empire as a whole LADIES FIRST The politeness of Americans toward women is proverbial the world over and neither custom nor regulations in foreign countries cause a diversion An instance attracting attention occurred re cently in London In all countries under modern treaties the premises of the representative of a foreign government are regarded as territory of his country subject to its juris diction Ambassador Choate gave a ban quet at the American legation at which the King Queen and Govern ment notables were guests In England royalty always comes firstthe King Entering the banquet hall Ambassador Choate came first escorting the Queen King Edward with Mrs Choate then others in order This apparent breach of etiquette and disrepect to the King caused whispers and looks of astonishment and indignation by most of the notables as they came in Mr Choate noticing the con fusion bowed to the King saying Ladies first sir in America The Queen added Exactly so and as this house is American terri tory I insist upon my rights The King bowed graciously and later during the feast laughed heartily at several of his noble sub jects who seemed horrified and cast angry glances at Mr Choate for his insult to his Majesty England can not even win a horse race nowadays Sceptre the English entry in the Paris Grand Prix came last and the English sports of high and low degree who plunged heavily on the racethere are a few fellows here at home who can guess the fate feelings and ejaculations of those English sports in Paris HAQANS NOMINATION CERTAIN The friends of Hon Frank Hagan candidate for the Democratic nomina tion to succeed Judge Malt ODoherty are highly elated over the favor with which the news given last week was received They are confident that he will win the nomination Still they are anxious that all their friends attend the mass conventions next Saturday and select delegates that will vote for their choice Hundreds have been heard to express the opinion that Mr Hagan is the man for the place and his managers are receiving assurances of support from all quarters Mr Hagan is conducting a clean and honorable canvass and it seems the masses are with him This is only just and right and will constitute a proper recognition of his put services to the Democratic party for which he has been a valiant and untiring fighter the only regret h that he is not given the nomination without opposition The greater the

characterize ia woman favorably or unfavorably than anything else How beautiful are those lines of Shakespeare where he says I Her voice was ever soft gentle am lowm excellent thing in woman Harsh uncharitable thoughts lend dis cordant tones to the speech and kind unselfish thoughts impart a natural euphony The voice unconsciously por trays the loveliness or unloveliness of our lives Thus the necessity of cult vatlng high ideals and geuerous qualities Beauty must commence way down deep in a womans heart in order to give her ia truly charming personality Nothing could possibly be more vulgar than au affection in speech Never cultivate some one elses voice however desirable it may seem Cultivate your own in stead Endeavor to acquire wellmodu lated tones and an easy correct use of language Thus you will keep your own individuality which when beautified will exercise more charm over your speech than any amount of imitation however clever ORADUATINO EXERCISES Tuesday morning the

lingering rays of sunlight but sud denly all over the wide extent of level sand darkness fell like a black robe Mahomet and his attendants halted on their journey and a tent was pitched Allahs care is over his children said one of the band I will even loose my camel and trust iu Allah that I shall find him again in the morning at sunriseFriend said the prophet with grave uplifted finger jltie thy camel and then trust in Allah There is one point of our daily living at which we see men and women con tinually losing their camels with long protests of trust in Allah and showing presently pious resignation at their loss I mean the care of the health Of course this earthly house of our taber nacle must decay and we must bear its infirmities cheerily and patiently but there is neither sense nor piety in com mitting our lives to God and then break all the laws of hygieneing ENCOURAGEMENT Perhaps there is nothing else so pro ductive of cheerful helpful service as th expression off approval or praise of work well done and yet there is nothing so grudgingly so meagerly given by employers Many of them seem to think that commendation is demoralizing and that the voicing of appreciation will lead to listlessness and the withdrawal of energy and interest This evinces but a poor knowledge of human nature whic is always hungering for approbation but how mistaken such views are is shown by the loyal and unstinted service gives t those largeminded men who treat that employes as members of a family com wilted to their care He who gives a trifle meanlyis meaner than the trifle 4 IRELAND 4

taken a farm in the County Sligo under circumstances objected to by the Riverstown branch of the United Irish League and afterward surrendered it and in whose interest the police under Superintendent Laracy assaulted a number of the people includ ing Mr Nannetti M P in Blessington street on Whit Sunday has sent a letter to the Inns Quay ward repudiatingand condemning the action of the Castle and the police The United Irish League of Derry have dealt promptly and properly with the Nationalist corporators who without a protest permitted the corporators to pro pose an expenditure of 2000 in connection with the decoration of the city on the occasion of the coronation Only four of the sixteen Nationalists in the corporation put in an appearance at the special meeting called for the purpose and of the four who attended only one made a spirited protest against the pro posal to use the city rates for the glorifi cation of the King The Justin McCarthy and the South Ward branches of the United Irish League have called upon the cautious Councillors to resign the posts to which they were elected on Nationalist principles If there are some craven Nationalists in Derry there are also overwhelming numbers who are straightand uncompromising- The local government elections in Dublin were extremely satisfactory all round from the Nationalist point of view Perhaps the most notable result was that in the two wards of Clontarf which was the stronghold of Unionism A few weeks ago Alderman Gibson declared at a coronation meeting in the Rotunda that thank goodness Clontarf would for many a day be a thorn in the side of the city and corporation Alderman Gibson was relegated to a back seat by the elect ors of the East ward who had the audacity to supplant himself and his Unionist colleague by two Nationalists Something similar took place in the West ward where two Nationalists were also returned and one Unionist There is very great consternation in Lord Ardilauns township In Arran Quay the United Irish League candidates have simply swept the field while in Inns Quay and other wards the candidates put forward by the United Irish League were also well to the fore After the savage sentences being imposed on the five brave Nationalists at Roscrea quite recently by a brace of Removables the treatment they were subjected to by the police authorities was both cowardly and inhuman The prisoners were detained in the court house about two hours after their sentence varying from six to threemonths being passed They were driven to Ballybrophy railway station a distance of twelve miles on outside cars under a regular downpour of rain When the prisoners were about to be removed from Roscrea they asked to have their over coats brought to them but the officer in charge sternly refused their request The five brave young men looked upon their imprisonment as a token of pride and honor for as the cars left Roscrea they all joined in the singing of God Save Ireland They informed some friends who followed them to Bally brophy that they were wet to the skin They were delayed at the Limerick Junction for several hours in this terrible condition and it was not until the small hours of the morning they arrived in Clohtnel It was a cold rainy night and it tqld pretty heavily on some of them for several days after In Ballinafad court house about four miles from Boyle

they assemble the life work of anI aspiring race is brought to our attention Not only the past but the future comesI before us How can the result be any thing but a success DONTS FOR MOTHERS Dont keep

November the appointment of the Archbishop of New York Bishop McDonnell of Brooklyn appears to have been dropped in consequence of repre sentations from the American Episcopate that he is not a desirable successor to the late Archbishop Corrigan The names of three candidates are now before the Pope They are Coadjutor Bishop Parley Monsignor Mooney and Father Gallon The appointment is regarded at the Vati can as one of exceptionable importance as the new Archbishop will be simul taneously elevated to the Cardinalate in accordance with opinions recently ex pressed by the Pope that all great metropolitan dioceses ought to be governed by a Cardinal The Pope on one occasion in conversa tion with several members of the Sacred College who objected to giving the United States more than one Cardinal said that the New York diocese contained over 3000000 Catholics and was therefore the most populous diocese in the world The Suns Vatican correspondent has good reasons for predicting that before the end of the year the United Stales will have three Cardina- lsHOUSEHOLD HINTS Excellent dish cloths or cleaning cloths may be made from old flour or salt bags Rip the bags

Appreciated Beautiful Programme Admirably Rendered by the Pupils Instructive Essays Bright Hoc Rations antI Delightful Music THERE WERE FIVE GRADUATES Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American GltORGn WN June 160n Thurs day June 12 the twentyseventh annual commencement of Cardome Convent of the Visitation Georgetown Ky took place before an exceedingly large and appreciative audience of friends and patrons of the school An ideal delight ful June day which served to bring out andexhibit in its most pleasing form theI magnificent scenery which surrounds for miles in every direction this historic school added charm and beauty to the occasion From all parts of Kentucky and many Southern States large crowds of fair and beautiful women and hand some men came to witness the rendition of one of the most excellent ptogramme that the writer has ever been fortunate enough to be present at The essays were bright and sparkling and this feature of the commencement which usually is so tiresome was universally enjoyed by the audience The five young ladies who graduated with the highest honors acquitted themselves in the most creditable manner and fully evinced that they were competent to assume the ardu ous duties of a business life should it become necessary for them to do so The numerous instrumental selections scat tered throughout the excellently arranged programme were splendidly and pro ficiently rendered by Misses May Eng land Mary Murray Mary Kenna Kath erine Sterling Maysie Hillenuieyer May and Pearl Robinson Mary Rassenfoss May Belle Barlow Elma Schoeberth Ellen OConnell Katherine Welch Marietta Proctor Maria Trimble Verna Kuox and Mary Grant The vocal numbers sung by Misses Mary Keuna Kath erine Sterling Mary Belle Barlow May and Pearl Robinson Mary Rassenfoss and Annie Gorey were equal ifnot superior to those heard in grand opera and elicited much applause from a de lighted audience An essay entitled The Drama was delivered by Miss Mary Kenna It was splendid in every detail of construction and delivery and elicited much applause An essay upon China was delivered by Miss Mary Murray and proved exceedinglyinterest ing to those who have followed the his tory of the Chinese and in point of composition was excellent The delivery was also good and received much applause Rapid Transit and Communi cation was an admirably composed aud excellently delivered essay by Miss Maysie Hillenmeyer Bright and sparkling from start to finish it fairly capti vated the audience Miss Hillenmeyer happily selected for the subject of her essay matters of vital interest to every one and the composition of the essay went to show that the fair composer had devoted long hours of careful study and hard work in its construction The liberal applause which greeted the close of the essay signified that the audience was highly pleased Child Lore an essay by Miss Katherine Sterling was indeed splendidly composed and admir ably delivered It was exceedingly in teresting and attended by liberal ap plause The last essay on the programme was Greek Ideals Christian Heroism by Miss Elizabeth Blakely This essay though exceedingly deep was very interesting and doubtless required much study and labor in its construction The subject discussed was admirably handled and the delivery was excellent in every detail The applause was liberal The following are the graduates for 1902 Misses Mary Sleviu Keuna of Charleston W Va Mary Ursula Mur ray of London Ohio Maysie Berenice Hillenmeyer of Lexington Katherine Paul Sterling of Carlisle and Elizabeth Ashton Blakely of Covington Mother Ambrose from New York City who was elected Mother Superior of Cardome for the next three years has arrived and taken charge The new buildings are rapidly nearing completion and will be ready for occupancy about the middle of August The dedication ceremonies which will be conducted by the Right Rev Bishop C P Mae upon his return from Rome will probably take place early in September The year just closed has been the most successful in the history of the school and next year will doubtless exceed all previous ones as Cardomes fame as a splendid institution of learning for young ladies has extended throughout the Sonth and West D J M FOR TUB WORKING GIRL It hardly seems possible that in this day and age it should be necessary to say anything about how the girl who works fojr a living should gown herself but every now and then one sees a vision in some little clerk or secretary that makes one eager to protest against the weaving of finery town office The girl who overdresses when she goes to business to help keep the wolf from the door is usually young very young and she has ideas about brightening up the dingy workaday world and becoming a sunbeam to the unfortunate men who are plodding along the road to fortune in her officeVWith this end In view she puts a bow i of ribbon iin her elaborate coiffure dons a silk waist and a trailing skirt snd pro ceeds on her mission thoroughly satis fied with herself JJn route she meets many older and more worldly wise women attired in clumsy shoes short skirts and plain shirt waists but she regards these pityingly as grubs who lack esthetic sense and continues her butterfly existence until age or experi ence or her employer leads her to the knowledge that pretty garments are not for wear during business hours but should be reserved for evenings at home when there are social friends to be impressed HINTS ON STYLE Crepe de chine white cloth and Japan ese silk made good contrasts for the ecru tints Mechlin lace being especially suit able for the latter Linings of a contrasting color serve to produce the shot effect in many of the gowns a simple matter this season with much sheer thin fabrics Foulards are still very much in favor however and altogether too pretty and serviceable to be discarded for any inno vation in the silk department The three flounced skirt the top flounce beginning at the waist is another novel style which is prettiest carried out in silk muslin but you see it also in veiling Dark colored1 foulards are rather ousted by the checked silks some of which arc trimmed very prettily with stitched bands of plain taffeta or rows of narrow velvet ribbonWhite weddings have been the fashion for some time now but the prettiest effects are made by having some scheme ot color for the bridesmaids gown The latest thing is mousselne in a pale soft shade of green or gauze made over the same color Some of the latest thin gowns have side plaited skirtand a deep band of lace around the hem or tucks at the hem and incrustations of lace above Ivory while batiste very sheer in quality is made up in this way anti so are the veilings which are as sheer and thin as the name indi sates Double skirts are seen among the new thin gowns especially among the em broidered batistes A pretty design edges both parts of the skirts and covers the front of the blouse the back which is in narrow yoke form and the top of the sleeves which are also double and in bell shape falling over little puffed under sleeve Grass lawns in shades of strong color have blossomed out anew since the con trasting linings have come into vogue as the color serves to make them much more becoming The newest grass lawns are printed in soft tinted shadowy flowers very much like the muslins the coloring being especially effective on the ecru tints Beautiful white gowns are made of Englishembroidered batiste plain batiste and lace in combination and a pretty idea for the batiste is to make it over white chiffon which softens the effect Shaped flounces of batiste embroidered on the edges trim one dainty model covering a wide shaped flounce which is beadedwith medalions of lace A pretty feature this season is the deep pelerine collar of lace and the bouffant sleeves ending a little below the elbow or at the waist in a deep transparent cuff of lace Hip yokes of lace with an entire lace bodice and upper sleeve of lace are the pretty finish of some oi the chiffon and Louisine silk gowns With a band of lace at the hem and a pelisse skirt and a tulle veil trimmed with applique motifs of lace this is a charming bridal gown BRILLIANT CEREMONY On Wednesday morning St Boniface church was well filled to witness the marriage of Miss Lillian A Kooper and Henry J Reuff At 9 oclock the wed ding party entered the church andas they reached the altar they were met by the Rev Father Paul Atf who celebrated the nuptial mass and performed the mar riage ceremony The lovely bride was attired in a handsome traveling costume and the scene during the ceremony was a brilliant one The ushers were Dr G Phil Beutel Jr Philip Reuff Clem Fangman and August Hoenier of Cin cinnati After a sumptuous wedding feast attended only by relatives the newly wedded pair left for a short honey moon trip and upon their return will be at home at 1200 Christy avenue BANNER OUTING The annual outing and excursion of the members of St Pauls parish will take place this year on Monday July 14 at Fern Grove all the boats having been secured for that date Those heretofore given were perhaps the largest and most enjoyable that have leftthe city hundreds going specially because of the excellent dinner served in the shade under the trees by the ladies Father Yorks great popularity is another

a- o OUTRAGE Pat McIIiigh M P Committed to Jail For Three Months National Leaguers Holding Big Meetings Throughout Ireland Promoting the Formation of a GermanHibernian Alliance KING WILL HOT GO TO CORK Cablegrams received from Dublin say several enthusiastic meetings of Irish National Leaguers were held last week in the important cities and towns of Ireland at which resolutions were adopted with a view to promoting the formation of a GermanHibernian alliance This move ment which originated recently in Washington at a meeting of representa tives of the GermanAmerican alliance in connection with the petition to Con gress in favor of the cause of the Boers does not seem to be affected by the fact of the war having ended Irish Nation alist leaders point out that such an organization will be eagerly welcomed by the German people as a means of opposing the Anglophile tendencies of ia certain class of Americans It is argued that GermanAmericans and IrishAmeri cans acting together can keep the pro British element in the United States far in the rear Patrick A McIIugh National member of Parliament of the North division of Leitrim and proprietor of the Sligo Champion who owing to his failure to appear in answer to a summons was ar rested June 15 was on Wednesday com mitted to jail for three months for con tempt of court Mr McHugh among a number of members of the United Irish League is charged with conspiracy and intimidation in connection with the com plaint of a tenant of a farm from which a member of the League had been evicted During his trial for alleged conspiracy he asked the Magistrates for their names The Chairman remarked that McHugh was only asking questions in order tc cause obstruction Thereupon McIIugl called the Chairman a damned liar and refused to apologize telling the Magistrates that he never expressed re grets to sweeps of their kind The news comes from Cork that the Executive Committee of the Cork Inter national Exhibition has abandoned all hope that King Edward will be a visitor His Majesty was expected to attend the exhibition some time in the autumn but recent advices from Buckingham Palace indicate that the Kings other pressing engagements will make this impossible Lord Mayor Edward Fitzgerald has announced that among the notable visitors to the exhibition whose positive acceptance has been received are the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire Lord Lieutenant and Countess Cadogan will also attend At a meeting of the Irish members of the House of Commons held in London on Tuesday afternoon resolutions to the effect that the Irish Nationalists as a protest against the misgovernment of their country resolved to take no part in the present coronation ceremonies and that the Irish party be summoned to meet in Dublin on the day of King Ed wards coronation to take in considera tion the condition of Ireland were unanimously adopted SECRET OF ENJOYMENT Many households fail to realize even a moderate ideal of happiness not from a lack of love or for a want of morall principle but simply from lack of ideas The husbands occupation may bring him into contact with many persons but his thoughts and reflections get into rut The wife for one reason or anotheraI gets into following a very narrow round The result is that neither of them bring to each other or into the home any new ideas or fresh impulses and so the com mon life becomes stale flat and unprofit able There is one wholesome corrective to this and that is hunt for ideas just for the sake of brightening up other peo ple in the home If you hear a good story keep it in mind If you learn of an interesting fact or a novel argument treasure it for the sake of the good it will do the home circle The reason why con versation in the home so often descends to the level of naggiug is that people lack ideas and outlook They do not say pleasantor bright or interesting things not because they are dull or illnatured but because there is nothing In their minds to work on The wheels whir and buzz but the clock doesnt strike NEXT BRATWURST FEST The Little Casino Club a social and charitable organization of that section of the city
