to Make the Day Possible Wore Among the Sturdy Pio neors Who First Settled in Kentucky Sons of Erin Preceded Daniel Boone in the Bluegrass Section RECORD AND DEEDS TO BRAG OF 1 Senator Chauncey Depew of New York says he always likes to brag on the glo rious Fourth and adds that every Ameri can should do a little of it on that day the greatest day in the American calendar Irishmen had much to do with the early settlement of Kentucky and many of the descendants of the socalled first families are of Irish extraction They were among the first to celebrate this greatest of American holidays in the Dark and Bloody Ground Some of the descendants of these pioneers are not classed among the Irish of today They are erroneously called ScotchIrish by those who do not know better Who fears to claim the Irish name Who will forswear his blood Who holds in shame the deeds of fame Of Eniuiet Grattan Flood Their hearts held true through death and rue- Through death and sore disgrace Then wholl forget the boundless debt We owe our Irishrace One year before the declaration of In dependence Hugh Shannon Patrick Jor dan John Haggin and other Irishmen settled in the region about Lexington now known as the Bluegrass A year afterward they heard of the battle of Lex ington and named their settlement after that famous contest with the British No mention is made by early historians that they were Scotch Some of these might have been Presbyterians but they were Irish just the same It is evident that they were patriots else they would not have named their settlement after the place where the British met with defeat On June 54 1778 Gen George Rogers Clark started from what is now called Louisville with his army of 170 men to reduce the British posts at Kaskaskia and Vincennes In his command were seventy privates and eighteen officers who bore Irish names Daniel Boone In 1775 found near what is now Harrodsburg the oldest settlement in Kentucky Hugh McGarry Thomas Hogan and their families Bishop Spalding in his notes on Kentucky mentions that the first physician and the first school teacher were Catho lics Dr Hart was the physician and Mrs Coomes the school teacher- It is well to recall these things on the glorious Fourth that IrishAmericans can point with pride to the part men of their blood and faith took in the settlement of their State and country There are not as many Irishmen in Kentucky now in proportion to population as there were in the days of the Revolution and mime diately thereafter Many Irish soldiers settled in Kentucky on lands which were deeded to them by the Government for their services in getting rid of the yoke of the British The valor of these pio neers should be recalled on the Fourth lest we forget that Irishmen were largely instrumental in making the cele bration of this day possible Like Senator Depew we feel a little like bragging on the glorious Fourth but when we come to look up the history of the Irish pioneers in Kentucky we find no necessity for doing so for the bare facts simply told is sufficie- ntMAMMOTH I CAVE First Owned By an Irishman Whose Descendants Retain It Among the first to explore Kentucky and Indiana was an Irishman named Geo Croghan who was then in the English army Ills descendants were patriots and one of them Col George Croghan was a Revolutionary soldier Of this family was Dr John Croghan a resident of Louisville a hundred years ago Dr Croghan visited Germany at the begin ning of the last century and there heard much about Mammoth Cave He had heard little about it here and in this respect was not different from the people of the present generation for few Louis ville people ever think of going to Mam moth Cave while people from all the European countries are constantly visit ing the big hole in the ground After Dr Croghan came back to Louisville he purchased the land surrounding the cave and the rave itself He thought it would prove a good investment If people in Europe were talking so much about it he concluded they would visit it When Dr Croghan died many years ago he left a will in which he provided that the property at Mammoth Cave should be entailed and his descendants are still in possession of it One of the curious provisions of the will is that one man shall manage the cave and another the c ii Yri hotel which is attached to it There iis litigation now going on about the prop erty in which several Louisville people are interested The Croghan heirs now all live in California The Mammoth Cave Hotel which was built in 1812 by Dr Croghan still stands and is part of the present hotel It was a log cabin After 1812 it became appar ent that the first log house would not be large enough to accommodate the guests and Dr Croghan added another log house and later on still another log house All of these are still standing but are weatherboarded over and a veranda extends along the entire distance of the first houses The Willard Hotel property at one time belonged to the Croghans and was known as the Croghan House before il was called the Willard It was pro pounced Crawn while the correct pronunciation of the name is supposed to be Crogan Mammoth Cave is regarded as one of the wonders of the world in Europe and an Irishman built the first hotel there- In some future time the Louisville and Nashville railroad may make the place more popular than it is now with Louis ville people It is a rare thing to hear Louisville people talk of the cave or evince any particular interest in it The descendants of Dr Croghan are not as enterprising as the original pro prietor who foresaw that a popular resort could be made of the place if it were properly attended to It was for this reason that the owner made a provision in his will that the cave should be man aged by one member of his family and the hotel by another and that the ac counts should be kept separately This is the cause of the present litigation ONE WOMANS WORK How Jofforsonvlllo Secured a First Class Hos pital Until about five years ago Jeffersouvllle was without a hospital of any kind One day a Sister of Mercy came along from a Western city with one companion an other Sister of Mercy They called upon Rev Father Audrau the then pastor of St Augustines church who has since gone to his eternal reward The Sister in authority was Mother Mary Regina who is now at the head of the Mercy Hospital on Spring Hill which is a credit to Jeffersonville and Southern In diana She told Father Audran that the purpose of her visit to Jeffersonville was to start a hospital Tut tut exclaimed Father Audran in Ins blunt way My dear Sister you can not start a hospital in Jeffersonville There is no money here for that pupose You had better go to some other city where there is more life and wealth Mother Regina was not to be discouraged She is possessed of a great deal of North of Ireland pluck She respectfully but firmly told Father Audran she had come to Jeffersonville to start a hospital and would start one In a few days she had rented a house on Chestnut street and begun business The house was a onestory frame with about six rooms In a few weeks she had several patients In a year she was compelled to look for larger quarters and removed to Spring Hill where a twostory frame building of fair size was purchased from the pro ceeds of the work begun on Chestnut street People marveled at the work of the two Sisters They were unable to understand how they got along so well Without seeming to be irreverent it may be said that the work was not all accom plished by prayer Sister Mary Regina believes that the Lord helps those who help themselves She is a business woman as well as a deeply religious woman These two Sisters of Mercy unaided toiling night and day soon had norm patrons than they could well serve In the twostory frame building and just as soon as this happened Sister Regina set about building a large hospital She told an architect what she wanted She made a contract with one of the leading contractors of Indiana to build a hospital structure with many rooms of brick and stone and it stands high above Jefferson ville and is a monument to the industry of this good woman Sister Mary Regina feels proud of her work and well she may So also may those who sent her to JeffersonvilleIt not please the good Sister to say that she carried on the work alone She had help When everybody saw that she was doing a good service for the community Catholic and Protestant Jew and unbeliever lent a helping hand With all of this work Sister Mary Regina finds time to be cheerful and not the least discouraged on account of debt Since her work has increased her supe riors have sent her a number of assistants and the hospital now has an abundance of good nurses and is constantly increas ing in favor among the medical profes sion the best physicians sending their patients there All who know Mother Mary Regina de light in her acquaintanceship and are proud that an Irish woman can accom plish so much in the face of so much opposition and disadvantages The Mercy Hospital is a monument to her pluck and ability Had Sister Mary Regina lived in a city of wealth there is no telling what she might have accomplished She is certainly away ahead of Jeffersonville in enterprise but she likes the place and its people and says they have treated her admirablySister started her hospital be fore the Sisters of New Albany or Louis beingfirstis due berg ems v 1- i HON JOHN T KEATING OF CHICAGO i National President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians

Rev John B Rolly Its Rector ci fXjf iCongregation Will Soon Cele brate the Fiftieth Anni versary When Built Was the Largest and Finest Church Over the River FIRST PASTOR A REMARKABLE MAN The Rev John B Kelly rector of Holy Trinity church has just completed im portant improvements on the venerable edifice which was built fifty years ago by the early settlers of Floyd county who were mostly Catholics With the per mission of the Right Rev Bishop Father Kelly will probably celebrate the golden jubilee on the first Sunday in October or thereaboutsHoly church was tegarded as extravagant in the days when it was built It is of brick of large dimensions and is as good today as when it was put up Recently Father Kelly has made it look like new by having an imitation stone coating put over it This coating is of Portland cement and under a new process looks like rough cut stone The church has been improved in many other ways by the recent addition of new pews a new organ and many other interior embellishments all of which reflect credit on the reverend rector and his congregation Father Kelly is a worker and when he calls for aid his people respondThe first priest at Holy Trinity was a very remarkable man He was the Rev Joseph Neyron priest physician traveler and man of letters He died a few years ago while serving at the Notre Dame University as a professor in that famous college He lived to be ninetysix In his youth he was attached to Napoleons army Being a physician and a famous surgeon people from all parts of Indiana and Kentucky came to him sixty years or more ago during his residence in New Albany for medical and surgical treat ment and he gave the early doctors in New Albany and the surrounding coun try much valuable information about the theory and practice of medicine and surgeryWhen Father Neyron built the church he did it mostly with his own means as money was very scarce in these times and when he left New Albany the con gregation owed him many thousands of dollars He made an agreement with the congregation that he would not exact the principal if they would pay him an annuity of several hundred dol lars a year during his lifetime This agreement was readily entered into and Father Neyron continued to draw the annuity until the time of his death at ninetysixThe rector has made a reputa tion all over Indiana aSa promoter of the S if 9yw cause of total abstinence The Total Abstinence Society connected with this church is one of the oldest and most influential in the State The pastor takes a personal interest in the work He does not go about abusing those who keep saloons but rather by moral suasion endeavors to gather into the total absti nence fold those who recognize that it is not safe for them to use intoxicants in any form In every congregation there are many such Father Kelly has been the means of saving many of these The entire work of Father Kelly in New Albany has been such that every member of his flock appreciates and loves him and he is besides held in high esteem by the entire nonCatholic population of New Albany Besides the church there is now one of the largest and most commodious school buildings In the city conducted by the Sisters and attended by hundreds of children It is in this building that Holy Trinity Hall is located Here the Ancient Order of Hibernians and other societies of Catholics hold their meetings fairs and other entertainments take place and commencements are held The hall has a seating capacity of perhaps 500 The congregation includes many of New Albanys foremost citizens and it is safe to say they will arrange for a jubilee celebration never before equaled in Indi anaAnd in connection with the foregoing it should also be stated that Holy Trinity congregation have been among the most earnest workers for St Edwards new hospital the pride of Indiana CHARITY CLUB MEETING Mombors Riso In a Body to Shako Hands With- Themselves The St Louis Charity Club met Mon day evening to hear the reports of the various committees and ascertain the result of the picnic which was given at Riverview Park on June 24 A smile could be seen lurking around the mouth of President Hennessy as each member cashed up for tickets and when Treas urer Walsh announced that he had 500 clear the club rose in a body and shook hands with itself The reasons for their satisfaction are several First it was their initial entertainment and the amount cleared shows the hearty support the club received from its friends Secondly the club was handicapped by the operetta produced only a few weeks Before under the management of the ChoruSociety which cleared 325 both societies mr in in the same territory The third and best r asorMmrfwas a social success every one who attended it expressing themselves well pleased especially with the dining room which was in charge of Mrs Judge John McCanu assisted by Mesdames Hanuau Meagher Strasner Motschmann Jami son Rohrman Schoneman and Law rence Wagner also by a bevy of the most charming young ladies in the southern part of the city comprising Misses Eliza and Anna Hauuon Ada McCann Lilly Gordon Anna Belle Dufficy Nora Ahern Mary OMalley Rose Deppen Catherine Gieske Emma Deppen Gertrude Colgan Ella Lenihan Margaret Hoertz Mollie Cody and a number of others who were so busy attending to the wants of their friends that they had not time to give their names to the reporter William Hannon contributed greatly to the success of the diningroom Another feature of the picnic was the nnmber of old boys who came down to help as well as to show the youeger fellows how they ran picnics in the olden times noticeably Jos F Wagner Mike Hogan and Jos Cole while among the younger men Willirui Best Michael Mc Dermott Dave Reilly Charley Callahan James Keneally and Pat Keefe showed themselves to be able and willing workers One of the features not on the pro gramme was the active efforts of Farmer Crotty to keep the hobos on the move but they found the farmer to be Johnny on the spot Mr Dave Burke assisted by John Moriarty and John Grogan saw that the dancers eujoyedthetnselves to the limit in this respect The manner in which Commodore Imorde lured the ladies to the wheel of fortune and then induced them to part with their money showed him to be a very attractive young man indeed Imorde should go into politics as he talked for four hours without stop ping which should entitle him to at least a State Senatorship The pieeating match was won by Willie Fitzgerald An engrossed certificate of his ability in this direction will be presented Willie by the club At the meeting Monday night the Club returned a rising vote of thanks to the ladies and gentlemen who had helped to make the affair both a social and finan cial success and to the Kentucky Irish American for the courtesy shown the club in its columns ENEMY OF HOME Too much business is the enemy of the home Men are so pressed that they are up late and early toiling day and night trying to keep their heads above water The result is the family is deprived of their presence and the home is left deso late when the man of the house is away Nothing distresses a woman more tha to feel that she is neglected An enemy of our happiness enters the home when the man who could make it a place of joy to all comes only at meal times hastylunch more perhaps until alate hour at the night a t COLORED PEOPLE 41 How They Are Looked After hy the Catholic Church in Louisville Hnvo a Fine Now Church Building and Schools on West Broadway Catholic Negroes Are Orderly Industrious and Sought After FATHER FELTONS GREAT SUCCESS The negro population of Louisville Is nearly 50000 and of this number there are several thousand Catholics but all are not regular church attendants In respect to church attendance the negro is like the white man mjghty uncer tain The negro Catholics who do at tend church are nmoug the best part of the colored population It is creditable to them that they are not spending their time in the Police Court and they have the respect of their white acquaintances When Father Spalding now Bishop of Peoria 111 lived in Louisville thirty years ago he saw the necessity of having a church for the negro Catholics of Louis ville They were allowed to attend the white Catholic churches but this was unsatisfactory Father Spalding pur chased ground at Fourteenth and Broad way which Is now very valuable mid built a church lie would have remained there if he had had his way but he was called elsewhere The phurch has had various pastors since Father Spalding left but it has never been so successful as under the management of the present pastor who is a German Father Felton Father Felton has just completed a new brick church which was blessed a few Sundays ago The colored Catholics are very proud of it There are but a few welltodo Catholic negroes in Louisville most of them being hardworking men andwomen but all of these contributed cheerfully to the building of their church and are now doing all they can to payoff the debt which they owe The children of these negroes also attend a parochial school adjoining the church which is conducted by the Sisters of Mercy All why have watched the nroirresaoL the negro Catholics in Louisville are pleasedwith the manner in which they conduct themselves They are orderly respectful and in1ustriousChildren who are brought up under the ministrations of the Catholic priests and Sisters in charge of St Augustines Catholic church p are much sought after by those who wish faithful servants male or female Father Feltou is gradually increasing the membership of St Augustines con gregation rand he has been highly com plimented by all who have inspected his church for his good work In taking care of the colored Catholics he is doing 4 a good work for the entire community In St Augustines church on Sundays there is congregational singing and ves pers and it is a very beautiful and edify ing sight to see and listen to these colored people sing They naturally love music and some of them have very sweet voices There are several benevolent societies connected with this church the members of which do much charitable work for the v foor of their race KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS Membership and Influence Constantly Increasing In Louisville Louisville Council Knights of Columbus now has a membership of over 300 of the leading Catholics of Louisville The council goes along quietly but ef fectively with its work and is daily growing in membership and influence Those who belong to the local council insist that it is the greatest order now in exist ence It Is certainly popular in the East and is growing in the West and South The leading Catholic men in Louisville or at least a great many of the leaders are on its rolls As a social body it has accomplished much in making Catholics better acquainted with each other and no doubt has helped some in a material way Its aims are high and all of its ob jects are worthy While the Knights have met with ecclesiastical opposition in certain quarters this appears to be dying out The Catholic priests in Louisville who belong to it are all charmed with it It has been said that the Knights of Columbus are a little too high toned for the ordinary run of people who join be nevolent societies but this sentiment prevails only to a limited extent The council it is true is careful about admit ting its members and it ought to be If its members wish to accomplish anything lasting it must of necessity have men of H probity intelligence and standing in its ranks It would not do to admit every notndrawn in favor of those of wealth or social position but these things are duly appreciatedFrom the Kentucky Irish American

OF THE CHURCH OF OUR LADY The Above Is the Handsome Portland Catholic Church of Which Rev Father JOllies J Conniff is the Esteemed Pastor CATHOLICITY I Its Spread and Great Influence Throughout Louisville and Kentucky Wonderful to Realize the Perse cutfon That Has Boon Withstood No Denomination Approaches Catholics For Charitable- Institutions HAVE THIRTYONE FINE CHURCHES According to the official reports in the Catholic directories for 1902 there are in Kentucky about 150000 Catholics 100 000 in the diocese of Louisville and 50000 in the Covington diocese Louisville has about 60000 Catholics When one considers thepers cutions Catholics have yearsinA P times it is wonderful indeed to Etaize what they have accomplished The 50000 Catholics in Louisville have thirtyone churches twenty parochial schools the finest female educational institutions in the city and a college for boys which is unsurpassed for efficiency in its particular lines The Catholic element of the population is the equal of any in intellectuality public spirit and all that goes to make good citizenship It might be said upI its membership taken as a whole is as wealthy as any but this is not material- It is to the credit of the Catholic pea pIe of Louisville and this is written with out intending to be boastful or to make invidious comparisonsthat their churches are the finest in the city and more people attend them on Sundays than in all the other denominations cbmbined There are 7500 children daily attending the various parochial schools If these chil dren were forced to attend the public schools the city would be compelled to increase its tax rate at least ten cents on the 100 valuation to educate these chit dren but instead the parents pay for the tuition saving the city and State the ex penseNonCatholics should give due credit for this and acknowledge that Catholics are favorable to education by taxing themselves voluntarily to pay for it and at the same time pay the general tax All of this they do without complaint or protestIn matter of charitable institutions no other denomination approaches the Catholic church membership for main taming asylums hospitals homes and refuges for the poor No hospital in Kentucky can compare with St Josephs or with the new hospital of St Anthonys just built The latter is more of a charitable institution than the former and its good work will soonbe felt and appre ciated in the whole community regard less of creed There is no greater public charity in the whole State than the home for the aged and infirm conducted by the Little Sisters of the Poor The good women who conduct it do not ask the creed x f any man who applies for admission It is free to all Few nonCatholics know the great work these Little Sisters have accomplished during the years they have been conducting this institution Indeed comparatively few members of the church know of it and it is only referred to here that people may take a deeper interest in it and encourage the work When one looks back to 1855 and re calls that churches were threatenedwith destruction and the lives of Catholics were not safe in this city he must admit that a wonderful change has come over the community NonCatholics no longer look with suspicion upon members of the church On the contrary they respect those who are true to the principles of their religion It is improbable that ever again in this community the bitter feeling which once existed will be revived By precept and example the Catholic people of Louisville have shown their separated brethren that they are worthy of confidence and respect This is indeed gratifying The era of good feeling has been brought about more by charity than anything elf e Catholics have al ways realized that it was only ignorance A 4 W s T- d that led those who persecuted them and have waited for their time Catholics have still a great deal to do and they will do it best in Louisville who by correct example show their nonCath ollc friends that they are living correct and upright lives and strictly observing their religious duties Catholics who are ashamed to acknowledge their faith ex cept when among persons of their own belief amount to very little There are some of these in Louisville but they are comparatively few Not many years ago it was not popular to be known as ia Catholic in other words it was not fash ionable but this time has gone by While the Catholic churches in Louisville are not the fashionable ones they are the ones that stand for all that is substantial inreligionThese reflections are written to call the attention of Catholics to a sense of their obligations and at the same time to remind them that they have some thing to be proud of The Catholic church in Kentucky and Louisville Is nearly one hundred years old It was really the first church to do missionary work in this State and not only should Catholics be proud of the record of today but likewise of the record of the past =JEFFERSONVILLE Irishmen Were There at Its Settlement and Centennial The other uay the people of the neigh boring city of Jeffersonville celebrated the one hundredth or centennuy of the founding of that town which was laid off according to plans prepared by that emi nent statesman Thomas Jefferson It was fitting that the orator of the day should bear an Irish name Frank B Burke a native of Jeffersonville and a graduate of St Joseph College Bards town delivered the principaladdress and it was a very happy one All the old citizens turned out and the occasion produced an era of good feeling among all classes It was recalled by the oldtimers that when Gen Lafayette came to Jefferson vine the first one to salute him was an Irishman named Burke who had served under him in the revolutionary war John Burke and his brother James were pioneers of Jeffersonvilles business life fortyfive years ago Even in the time of Gen George Rogers Clark Irishmen flourished in Jeffersonville When Gen Clark lived on the falls a century ago there lived with him a man named Con nelly who served with him on his march to Vincenues when the British were driven from that post in 1793 It was an Irishman who cut Gen Clarks leg off when he met with an accident in his cabin on the falls In fact Irishmen have been connected with the early history of Jeffersonville from the earliest times Men of Irish blood have done much to build up the old town and it was fitting that they should take part in the centen nial From the earliest times there has been aCatholic church in Jeffersonville SPEAK KINDLY TODAY Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead Fill their lives with sweetness Speak approving cheer ful words while their ears can hear them and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them the kind things you mean to say when they are gone The flowers you mean to send for their coffins send to brighten and sweeten their homes before they leave them If my friends have alabaster boxes laid away full of fragrant perfumes of sympa thy and affection which they intend to break over my dead body I would rather they would bring them out in my wearied and troubled hours and open them while I need them I would rather have a plain coffin without a flower a funeral without an eulogy than a life without the sweetness of love and sympathy Let us learn to anoint our friends beforehand for their burial Postmortem kindness does not cheer the burdened spirit Flowers on the coffin cast no fragrance over the weary way Hats seem to be growing in size as the summer advances and the fashion of drooping ends at the back no doubt adds to this effect as well as to the price which is fabulous if you wish to make it so But it is also true that there never was a time when such pretty stylish hats could be purchased in the dry goods stores foe suchUa moderate sum N w t IN PUBLIC AFFAIRS I Irishmen the Equals of Any in Executive and Judicial j Capacity Career ofJudge Matt ODohorty Is an Object Lesson to All Men Irish Police Chiefs Most Promi nent in Recent National Convention PAPERS WERE ORDERED PRINTED Duringtlip reI convention ui ine National Association of Police Chiefs held in Louisville it was a subject of remark that the Chiefs bearing Irish names dominated the convention Not only was this so because of the large number present as delegates but it was evident that in practical suggestions and intellectual grasp these led all the rest The alleged comic papers are fond of cartooning the Irish policeman as a dullard or worse but if the proceedings of this con vention are studied it will be seen at a glance that the men in authority in the police departments of American cities who happen to be Irish lead all the rest The two most notable papers read in the convention of Chiefs were by Irish men Chief Matthew Kiley of St Louis read a paper which has attracted a great deal of attention from criminolo gists It was on the subject Do Crimi nals Reform He handled the subject in a way which indicated that he had given it attention and his suggestions and deductions showed that he worthily fills the place of Chief in one of the great cities of the world The paper read by Chief ONeill of Chicago on the subject of Anarchy was another thoughtful paper Both were ordered printed in full in the proceedings of the convention and will be read by police authorities over the world Irish police officers in American cities male the best of any Our own German Chief Col Sebastian Gunther virtually admits this in surrounding himself with men like Assistant Chief Patrick Ridge Police Captain James Hendricks Lieu tenants Bright Burke Heffernan Wick ham and others who might be men Boned The ordinary Irish patrolman in Louisville too snows his business and attends to it often at the risk of his lifeSome people affect to believe that an Irishman is only fitted to be on the police force that he is not intellectually quail fied to assume the higher positions This is shown to be a false assumption for men of Irish birth or descent are now at the head of various municipalities In the cultured city of Boston Patrick A Collins is regarded by everybody as a model Mayor and a dozen other in stances could be named Only one Irishman has been elevated to a high judicial position in Louisville in recent times and the manner in which he has served the public and the universal praise he has received from members of the bar since he has been on the bench show the esteem in which he is held Had Matt ODoherty desired he could have been reelected Judge with out opposition In his own party but be preferred the harder work of an advocate in which he has been so successful When he retires in November to resume his law practice it will be with the praise of all who have had business in his court Judge ODoherty has worked his way up without the backing of any influential friends He labored hard and his career is an object lesson to men of his blood When the parties come to select a Judge for a long term a year hence they could do 110 better than to pick out a man like the retiring Judge of the second division to fill one of the judicial positions It would be a just recognition of the Irish population In this city to give one of the judicial places to some one of the Irish American members of the bar And all that is said above regarding the guardians of the peace applies with equal force to the fire departments of the country The records teem with names of Irishmen honored for unexampled dar ing and bravery to save life and property Ir o o s moooooe ooo 0000o o4oarotsoo om m V P RBIUNNONPresident i P1- d BANNON SEWER PIFEO- o H 0P i 0P o Q J = u- I d

the bill itself as it stands is worthless where it is not mischievous and we declare that the action of the Government in relation to this bill is another proof to the people of Ireland that their

interest It is always a pleasure to me to have your views on current events American or foreign What changes have passed on the Unitedl States since we met in Louisville in 1890 It seems to me here at a distance and knowing indeed comparatively little of the actual state of things in America a pity for the country including the Republican party that the Democratic party is not better organized under abler and more influential national leaders to constitute an effective opposition Every administration ought to be faced by a pretty strong opposition You may say that of England and it is true This miserable South African war has injured our domestic politics Is your towns man Mr L N Dembitz still living and writing I have not heard of him for a long while Yours very truly JAMES BRYCE

TEN YEARS AFTE MARRIAGE Ten years since the wedding day Mrs Howlaud was alone She had left her husband in the little room where they usually sat together through the evenings while she put the children to bedMrs Howland did not feel inclined to return to the family sitting room where she had left her husband but remainedI in the chamber with her sleeping little ones in a musing brooding unhappy state of mind Something of coldness s and alienation had been growing up between her and her husband for a longtime past The old tenderness of man ner which had been so sweet was all1 gone lie was kind thoughtful in regard to her comfort honorable and true but getting more formal and less affec tionate in manner every day Ills wife who had loved lint very tenderly and still loved him had failed to give in her life the adequate response to hishad iin the fret and fever of a disciplinary exist ence suffered herself to walk amid disturbing and discordant elements instead of taking her place serenely by side And so inharmonious things had been permitted to jar where all might have been peace It was pressing upon the mind of Mrs Howlaud that her husband had censed to love her sari this conviction was taking all the sweetness from her life It did not once occur to her that she was herself growing unlovely and that she had laid aside nearly all the external things by which when a maiden she had sought to win himthe sunny countenance the alluring voice and manner the scrupu Iou attire the deference to his tastes and opinions the guard upon her temper the womanly elevation of character that made her seem as one who ruled in the kingdom of her own soul This was the being he had loved this the woman he had taken to walk with him through life Alas for the fading ideal He had found instead one who made scarcely an effort at selfgovernment whose feel ings and impulses were her springs of action Deeply passionately she loved him but only a wise and selfabnegating love blesses both itself and the object of its devotion Without some change on the part of Mrs Howland it was impos sible for them to grow together as one For nearly half an hour after her chil dren were asleep the mother sat in her wretched mood apart from her husband and feeling no inclination to join him All love has died she said I am another now Aud as she said this her heart shivered with an instinctive realiza tion of what her words involved Then Fear for the loss of a thing so precious as a husbands love seized upon her soul and inspired a new purpose A love worth winning was surely worth an effort to retain And was not the way to win the way to keep A new light broke into Mrs Howlands mind She began to see things in herself that were very far from being in harmony with her life when a maidenthings that would certainly have repelled her lover and were they bonds for a husband These thoughts startled the awakening wife Then old memories were revived bringing back old states Pictures warm with the hues of love came out of the dim past Is the cup broken and the wine spilled she asked herself God for hid came from her lips in audible utterance Then she left the chamber where the children slept and with silent feet went slowly toward the apartment iu which she had left her husbandalone On the way she paused stood still for a moment then returned Tire gas was burning low She threw up the light and caught a reflection of herself in a toilette glass One glance sufficed That was not the style in which she had ap peared before her lover Taking down her hair she applied comb and brush rapidly for some minutes and then ar ranged the glossy masses with taste and skill Next the soiled and tumbled wrapper was removed and her person attired in a neatlyfitting dress around the neck of which was laid a snowy linen collar fastened by a small coral pin her husbands gift of other days Already her cheeks were in a glow and her eyes Tilled with light One long glance at herself in the mirror revealed a wonder ful transformation How the old mem ories were crowded in upon her How soft her heart was growing How full of tenderness was every thought of her husband Her lips were athirst for kisses And now Mrs Howland left her chamber again Her slippered feet gave no sound as they moved over the carpet and she came to the open door of the sitting room without betraying a sign of her approach There she stood still Mr Howland was not at the table reading as she had left him but at his secretary which was open He was reclining his head on one hand and gazing down upon something held in the other and seemed wholly absorbed For more than a min ute be remained in this fixed attitude his wife as still as himself Then a long sigh trembled on the air and then lifting that object on which his gaze was directed Mr Howland pressed it to his lips kissing it almost passionately three or four times A wild throb leaped along Mrs Howlands veins Then her heart grew still as in the presence gf some unknown but stupendous evil Something impelled her to spring for ward and read this mystery and some thing as strongly held her back As she stood pale now and in a tremor the object was kissed again and then returned- to a drawer in the secretary from which it had been taken In this act for an in stant the miniature of a lady met the gaze of Mrs Howland Locking the drawer Mr Howland placed the key in his pocket and then resting both hands secretaryburied lessTurning away as noiselessly as she had approached Mrs Howland fled back to her chamber in wild affright and sat down panting and in bewilderment As 4- i y soon as thought began to move in a de termined way the first result was a floodI of indignation a burning sense of wrong and it was only by an effort that the out raged wife could hold herself back from confronting her husband and demanding f to see the miniature A calmer but a less painful state succeeded in whichi conscience whispered of indifference andI neglect Had she turned habitually her most attractive or her least attractive side to her husband Had she kept herself lovely in his eyeslovely in temper and lovely in person Her heart sank iit grew darker around her life seemed crushed out Who is m This question marked a change in the current of Mrs How lands thoughts Rapidly she passed iin review one lady friend after another but without an incident to fix suspicion Then times and seasons in which her husband was absent from home were dwelt upon Once a week regularly he went out in the evening occasionally twice The regular absence was for the purpose of attending a literary society at least so he had Informed his wife Now for the first time doubt of his truth crept in and this doubt was as the sweep ing away of all the sure foundations on which her soul had rested For a long time Mr Howland remained sitting at his secretary with his face buried in his arms 1 At length rising with a slow weary motion as of one exhausted by mental exertion he drew out his watch- Halfpast nine was ejaculated And then he looked through the door over toward the chamber whither his wife had gone with the children and stood listening for sonic sound All was silent For a time he moved in anj uneasy irresolute way about the room and sitting down tried to find interestiin the pages of a book But in a little while the volume closed in his hands Thought was too busy in another direction to dweleven with a favorite author Ten oclock The bell was ringin- its clear notes from a neighboring steeple Mr Howland started up and turning out the light went over to the sleeping room His wife was in bed He spok- to I her but she did not answer Are you asleep No motion nor re sponse of any kind She lay with lie face nearly hidden under the bedclothes He looked at her in a strange earnest manner for some moments and then moving about noiselessly prepared forest The day had been one of muchi activity and Mr Howland was weary enough for sleep Soon after his teat touched the pillow he was in the land off dreams Hisdeep breathing had scarcely given evidence of the fact ere a light movement on the part of Mrs Howland showed her to be awake Presently she drew the clothes from her face and raised1 herself cautiously The heavy breathing of her husband was not interrupted She sat up in bed he still slept on she glided from beneath the covering and groping in the das found her husbands vest from which she took key Mother The slight noise made fin opening the chamber door had disturbed one of the children Mrs Howlaud stood still holding her breath The call was not repeated and she went out t groping her way along the passage with a hand on the wall Entering the room she sought she closed the door behindj her and drew the bolt fastening herself in Now all her motions became hurried1 and nervous After lighting the gas she went to her husbands secretary and1 with the key in her possession unlocked1 one of the private drawers Her handI shook so that the key rattled on the scutcheon before a way was found into the wards The firstobject that met her view as the drawer came open we a morocco miniature case which sh e seized upon with a clutch as eager as- a bird of prey and bearing it to the gas light unloosed the clasp and exposed the face of her rival It was a young and lovely face an the eyes looked up into hers with aI tender and sweet expression Away from the pure forehead the hair of golde- auburn fell smoothly back and lay iin curls upon her neck that was whiter an purer than alabaster The lips were full soft and arching as if for a flight of are rows Loves witchery was in the pictured countenance Still very still did the wife sit an look down upon her rivals face that face on which scarcely an hour befor- she had seen her husbands kisses laid Still very still she sat the tears creeping out of her eyes falling slowly over her cheeks and dropping upon the min iature Was she jealous of her rival No Her heart was too glad for jealously too full of joy too wild with a newborn happiness The bride of ten years ago was the rival of today and the heart of her husband was true to his marriage vows I It was no fault of his that b could not love what had become un lovely Not unlovely in the poorer sig nificance of the word as indicating changes wrought by the wearing hand1 of time but unlovely through indul gence in impatience and fretfulness and1 n the neglect of selfdisciplineun lovely also from carelessness ofattire and personal neatness With the image of herself as she wasi ten years before and with the image off her husband fondly passionately kissing that image dwelling in her imagination Mrs Howland went back to her bed She had suddenly awakened as fromi a dream and the language of her heartt was Thank God that I am awake As they sat at breakfast the next morn ing Mrs Howlaud noticed a change ini the expression of her husbands face asi he looked at her across the table letting his eyes dwell upon her with unusual in terest It was a pleased almost admire ing expression She was in no doubt asi to the cause for she had attired herself with scrupulous care in a clean bright morningwrapper and wore a cap fast cued on one side with a ruby bairpin t f I- 1L1 IaI u and ornamented with two or three small pink bows and a sprig of flowers A plain linen collar pinned with a cameo was around her neck And better than allshe had banished every sign of discontent and fretfulness from her facet How sweet mother looks this morn lug said Mr Howland glancing at one of the children who sat near her and smiling one of his old bright smiles Dont she answered the little one lifting her rosy mouth to mamma for a kiss liMe kiss too mamma so beautiful and little Allie scrambled down from her chair in newborn admiration of her mother and put up her mouth also And me too exclaimed Mr How land passing around the table and lay ing his lips gently and lingeringly upon the lips of his wife He saw as he looked across the table on resuming his seat that her eyes were dim with tears lIe knew they were tears of pleasure but did not imagine how deeply her heart was stirred nor how full of pre clans memories and golden hopes the moment was crowded Ten years after marriage Loves lamp was burning low the oil nearly ex hausted the wife grown so unattractive turningbacklamp has blazed up again there is a sup ply of oil A beauty beyond any bridal beauty invests the wife and it shall grow more womanly more luxuriant more enchanting as the days succeed each other and years progress until this soul puts on her garments of eternal youth HOUSEHOLD HINTS The Catholic newspaper is a great home educator Take one and see the result Those

a quiet one A dull woman may be quite talkative and yet her conversation will be anything but interesting The whodpossesses good characteristic qualities affords a gentle dignity which is a charm gennerally disliked They may be witty and isdtoo coarse to please refined minds The woman who is too backward in her man ner places herself at a disadvantage She is generally a selfconscious creature welldbred woman makes herself interesting by otherseShe knows how to be a friendwithout being too familiar She has an infinite amount of respect for the feelings of others which is one of the secrets of her success TROUBLE OF CLOTHES Much as every true woman loves her pretty gowns and becoming pals she has periods when the question of dress be ofelaces ribbons and other gewgaws palls upon her spirits and the choice and necessary work attendant upon the arrangements of a winters or summers wardrobe become a trial almost too heavy to be borne Then it is that she envies man his conventional attire his busi ness suit that requires no particular thought and the regulation evening clothes that are appropriate for every occasion from a family dinner to the most formal entertainment One ingen ious young woman thinks all this trouble would be obviated if the women would all wear uniforms But this is a Utopian dream which may come with the millen nium An elderly womdn remarks As women grow older the enforced neces sity of spending a great deal of time and money in selecting and buying their clothes grows more and more irksome and yet if they mix with the world and go out mdre or less in society it seems a necessity It does seem a pity that for such as these at least there is not some regulation garb wherein they may feel as a man does well dressed and at ease whatever may be the

1assionist Order are doing in this country They have a number of fine houses throughout the United States and do missionary work wherever they are called They are eloquent men and very successful in their particular calling One of the most distinguished members of the order is the Very Rev Felix Ward who has charge of the Retreat on the Newburg road in the suburbs of Louisville Father Ward has been contemplating for a long time the building of a fine monastery on the site of the present building and may do so when he gets the full consent of his superiors and of the Right Rev Bishop McCloskey rather Ward is partial to Kentucky and believes that it is a flue field for mission ary work The present location of the Retreat is a delightful and healthful one and all the members of the order who come here are delighted with it particu larly in the summer time The Passlonists have a fine library at the Retreat and they have delightful grounds but the buildings are not what they should be The accommodations are inadequate for the needs of the order and Father Ward has been seriously thinking of building a fine house Now that the city of Louisville is building new streets to the suburbs in this vicinity- it is likely that Father Wards plans wilt be carried into effect It was largely through the liberality of the Right Rev Bishop that the building of the street in the vicinity of St Louis cemetery was made possible The Bishop donated ia strip of ground 1700 feet long for ia thoroughfare and the street is now being made There will soon be a good road way to the Passionist Retreat something which Father Ward has long desired The Passionist fathers who are con nected with the retreat here do most of their work in other States They are called upon to give missions elsewhere and this is one of the reasons why their work here is so little known They are constantly on the road and it is through their work elsewhere that the institution here is kept up Some of the priests are men of great eloquence and all of them are good preachers The diocese of Louisville is fortunate in having them Of course if they conclude to build a new house more priests will come here to live They spend most of their time in study and in places conduct schools and col leges of a high order It is hoped that they will yet see their way clear to estab lish a house such as Father Ward con templates building One of the best known priests of this order and a great missionary is Father Erasmus who officiated at the Sacred Heart church in this city two years ago when Rev Patrick Walsh visited Rome and the Holy Father and later when the Rev Father Sheridan made his trip to Ireland and Rom- eCATHOLIC LITERATURE The Free Library Should Be Supplied With a Fair Proportion Mayor Grainger has acted wisely and fairly so far in the matter of appointing trustees for the proposed new free public library The various religious denominations are represented on the- hoard Bishop Dudley representing the Episcopal church Col Young and others the Presbyterian Dr Ouchterloney the Catholic and so on down the line The Trustees without exception are men of broad views even Ifall of them are not experts on books When it comes to selecting the books It is important that a competent book committee be appointed Much of the success of the library will depend on this The selection should include books which are fair to all classes creeds and nationalities In this case the books are to be paid for by the general public a tax being levied for this purpose by the General Council In many of the public libraries throughout the country there are few if any Catholic works This s often due to the prejudice or ignorance- of the book committee Catholic literature in this country is now of a high standard and there is no reason why the works of standard authors should not be in every freeJlbrary Attention is called to this matter now in order that the Library Trustees may think the matter over and do justice to their fellow citizens of the Catholic faith when they go to make up the book lists In selecting Dr Ouchterlqney as ode of the Trustees Mayor Grainger made no mistake He is one of the most accomplished men in Louisville He is a well read man and if the Mayor and the Trustees place him on the committee to select the books everybody will be fairly a- t7 treated and Catholics will have nothing to complain of In this matter Catholics ask for no favors but simply evenhanded justice and there is every reason to believe that this suggestion will be heeded and a fair amount of Catholic literature selected HICKEYS PARADISE His Placo on Jefferson Street Surpassed by None In i the City There is not in Louisville today an Irishman better known or more popular than Mike Hickey proprietor of the Par dise on 5efferson street between Second and Third His legion of friends will be pleasantly surprised when they visit his place today For three weeks a force of carpenters and decorators have been at remodeling the entire first floor their work having just been finished New and handsome fixtures cut glass mirrors and brilliant electric light fixtures have been put in giving the whole an elegant and luxuriant appearance and making the Paradise all the word implies Mike Hickey deserves the success he has achieved Honest liberal and gen tlemanly and handling only the best brands of goods his resort will attain still greater popularity and it is to be hoped the business will grow to such pro portions as to enable him to soon buy the building In connection with the Para dise there is now a cosy reading room where the Kentucky Irish American will always be found on fil- eIYIINERAL WATERS H J Wagner Sustaining the High Reputation of Springers Sons No manufactory in the United States of artificial mineral waters has gained a higher reputation than that of William Springer Sons The firm has been in business in this city so long that the oldest inhabitant can not recall when the Springers were not making mineral waters The high reputation of the old firm is being more than sustained by H J Wagner who has succeeded to the business He thoroughly understands the manufacture of ginger ale cham pagne cider extract ginger extract peppermint rock candy syrup vichy Carls bad seltsers Kissingen lithia and other waters syrups and flavors which are promptly supplied to the trade The vichy Carlsbad Kissingen and lithia are supplied in syphons if desired Mr Wagner also supplies portable steel foun tains soda water apparatus etc Firms dealing in any of these articles will be promptly waited upon by calling by Cumberland telephone number 80C main or on application at the office 230 Third street Mr Wagner is putting new life into the business and the retail dealers will find him a very clever man to do busbies with PICNIC POSTPONED The picnic for the benefit of St Philip Neris church has been postponed to August 12 on account of bad weather This ought to increase the attendance as the public will have recovered from the surfeit of picnics and excursions at this season besides more time is gained to arrange and increase attractions and pleasures for the patrons CHANGE OP FIRM The well known Sheas Bluegrass Ex change Fifth street between Jefferson and Market has passed to the control of Louis Wabnitz Co Mr Wabnitz has been long connected with the place is popular because of his attention to business and courtesies to patrons The new management will continue and im prove upon if possible the accommodations and stock for the comfort and pleas ure of the public which made Sheas a pleasure resort and Mr Wabnitz will make all feel welcome and at home il f jf v iJH L C c BOOK TRUST People of Louisville at Its Mercy and Authorities Hypnotized The School Book Trust has a firm grip on Louisville and the school authorities from the Trustees to the Superintendent and some of the teachers seem to be working handdu hand with them There will be an election this fall for seven School Trustees It matters little whether Democrats or Republicans are elected it seems that the Trust is powerful enough to control and the price of books keeps at the old standard It is a wonder that the people have stood this imposi tion so long Right across the river In New Albany and Jeffersonville school books can be purchased for less than hall the price the people of Louisville are paying The Indiana Legislature some years ago was forced by public sentiment to pass a law which knocked out the Trust and since then the price of books has been fairly reasonable but not so low as books can be sold if there was still more competition In Louisville there is no competition whatever It iIs said the Book Trust employes a man In Louisville at a salary of 3000 a year to look after the interests of the Trust This agent must be a very eloquent man to prevail upon the Superintendent of the Schools who is paid by the people and on the Trustees who are elected by the people to keep up the high prices No one has yet charged that there is any corruption but it is fair to infer that the Trust has some of these school authorities hypnotized Poor men who have to work hardevery day to earn a living find it difficult at best to give their children an education without being imposed upon in the matter of the purchase of books Books should be cheep The histories grammars arithmetics geographies and some of the other highpriced books which are sold for a dollar do not cost more than fifteen cents to produce- So outrageous has this highpriced book monopoly been acting that some people are talking of holding a mass meeting to protest against it If time Superintendent of the Schools and the Trustees want to make themselves popu lar they will notify the School Book Trust that lower prices must prevail for instance like in Indiana If they do this they will have the thanks of the patrons of the schools and will be doing that duty for which they were elected- It is all well enough to talk about these things before an election but now is the time for reform There is no necessity of putting it off until after November The Trustees are all believed to be honest men and they should at once take action and not allow the agent of the Book Trust to give them any more taffy about their inability to furnish books cheaper The books sold in Louisville are said to be made in nonunion printing and binding establishments where starvation wages are paid to the employes If some change is not made every supporter of the Book Trust Republican and Demo crat who aspires to get into the School Board this fall will be defeated THE OLDEST CITIZEN Michael OConnell of Jeffor sonvllle Passed Away Aged NinetySix One of the oldest men in Indiana and the oldest citizen of Jeffersonville Michael OConnell passed away on Sun day night at his home on Division street adjoining Port Fulton Michael OCon nell
