St Patricksll Nightct t Tells the Story of Irelands Glorious Past to FinerAudience c Our Lifes Blood Pledged tojj Perpetuation of Amen J can Institutions I IRELAND CENTER OF CHRISTIANITY I 1 I We take pleasure in presenting ourII readers especially the young the mas terly address of Emmet Shltery delivered at the Hibernian celebration at Liederkranz Hall on St Patricks night It is an interesting narrative of Irelands t glorious past and contains much valuable informationI to thank the Ancient Order of J Hibernian for the distinguished honor of their invitation to address this magnifi I cent audience and to express my pleasure of being with you on this occasion It always affords me much pleasure to be present at these celebrations in honor of Irelands patron saint and I am espe I cially pleased on this occasion because 1 of the presence here of so many ladies J which of necessity is an inspiration to my remarks These celebrations must awaken in the hearts of all true Irishmen a new and stronger love for that beautiful isle of the i A sea and if my remarks this evening perchance serve as a medium to arouse 1 some new interest in the glorious history of Ireland then I shall rest content with j my modest efforts But though I pos sessed a voice of unvarying sweetness and had command of the pure and expressive 1 language of Tom Moore even though there flowed from my lips the J eloquence of OConnell and I had the skill to awaken each sweet string of love i and sympathy within your bosoms I would feel but poorly equipped to relate t the story of Irelands glorious past- aWhile we have come here tonight to do honor to the laud of our forefathers we t have come as American citizens But a whilepledging our sllegiancetotills glorious republic in which we live and while consecrating our very lifes blood to the perpetuation of American institu tions we can not conceive nor do we believe that a love and affection for Ireland I is incompatible with that duty s- And why should we not be proud of our Irish blood and Irelands history The Irish race is one of the most ancient and Ireland traces the story of her existence- sback into the enchanted realms of romance and fable It has been said of 4 Ireland that there is spun around her earliest history a web of blended myth and reality as charming as the leg ends of Attica Many are the stories told of the first mortal who ever set t foot upon Irelands soil Many of these stories are probably myths t and have but little foundation in fact We read in Keating that it is believed by 4 some that three of the daughters of Cain arrived there about three hundred years before the deluge and we have it also I that three fishermen driven thence from t the coast of Spain by a storm were the first to arrive there We may puzzle our I brains in vain to get at the truth of these stories or we may believe or not believe I the legends of Conn of the Hundred Fights and Fin McCoul but the impres1 sion which these stories make upon us is that there was in Ireland a very ancient civilization and that in the dim past the island was occupied by successive in vaders who came evidently from the south But putting aside these uncertain stories and searching authenticated history we read of the origin of the Scoto Milesians and the voyages of their ancestors I the Goadellans and of their voyages from Spain to Ireland They were known to have been in Ireland long before the 4 Christian era Going back to the time before their coming to Ireland we find that when the Egyptian army was drowned in the Red sea some of the Egyptians escapedand among them was a certain noble Scythian whom they drove from among them for fear that he would dominate over them He went with his family and some friends to Spain and from thence carne his descend ants to Ireland The exact time when the Scoto Milesians came to Ireland is difficult to fix but Keating says it was about thirteen hundred years before Christ These ancient Irish were not without a knowledge of the trades and arts Having found among them mines of gold silver tin and iron they learned to manufacture and use them The sword the lance and the ax which we find among them show that there were among the Milesians workmen who knew how to make use of the treasures which nature had placed among them With these few words I have endeavored to give you some idea of the earliest inhabitants of Ireland As my time 1is limited it will not be possible for me to do more than speak in a general way Coaiing down to the time of Chrktain n Ireland we find that as early as the first century and long before St Patrick had O established himself among the people thefeWire Chrfstaina on the island And that M early M the third century several a a r missionaries went from Ireland to the other pagan countries of Europe to spread the gospel of Christianity But the num ber of Christa ins in Ireland at this time was few and the great majority of the people were still pagans fHence it was that the missionaries were sent into Ireland to bring the inhabitants the blessing of the Christaiu religion The first of these missionaries was Paladins who though he did good work among the people was expelled from the country by an Irish king His successor was St Pat ick who arrived in Ireland about the year 432 Under St Patrick pagan Ire land was completely converted to the Christain religion No other nation received the teaching of Christ with such joy as did Ireland and nothing can be found to equal the zeal with which these new converts lent their aid to the com plete demolishing of every vestige of paganism upon the island Many churches were built in all parts of the island and monasteries schools and universities were established Ireland became as it were the center of Christ sanity and a seat of learning and to her shores came the youths of other countries seeking education and enlightenment While religion flourished from the fifth to the eighth century in Ireland matters had not progressed so smoothly among the different tribes or clans The feeling of jealously among the different chiefs had become Intensified and many feuds arose between the lepta or clans and there were many battles and skirmishes Even as early as the introduction of Christianity into Ireland the Irish had I divided themselves into tribes swearing allegiance to different kings The province of Connaught acknowledged the rule of the OConnors Munster that of the OBriens Leluster that of the Mc Morougbs and Ulster that of the ONeills Along about the end of the eighth century dark clouds began to appear upon the horizon of Irelands history There descended upon the island from the north Viking ships laden with Picts Danes and Norsemeu who brought with them ruin misery and devastation Under the leadership of Thorgist these barbarians of the north wrought havoc and disaster in the Emerald isle They took possession of the whole Eastern coast destroyed the churches and the famous Cathedral ofi Armagh slaughtered the priests and monks and established themselves firmly in the vicinity of Athlone For three centuries the power of the Danes was felt in Ireland during which time con tinuous war was waged between them nd the Irjsh During these black times the refining effects of Christianity had pparentrl ppeared But the rood J sptrrr the risi woulitnot 1Qwn ands there arose among them a chieftau who was destined to put an end to the oppressions of the invaders He is one of the most famous and interesting characters In Irish history and while regarded by people not familiar with Irish history as a mere myth nothing is more certain than that Brian Born was of real flesh and blood and a courageous and successful leader Under his leader hip the Irish were united and aroused toI new enthusiasm and waged war upon the Danes and defeated them again and again After the defeat of the Danes peace once more rested upon the island and the people began to again ply the peaceful avocations of trade But this happy time only lasted about twelve years when the Danes again made a desperate effort to regain control On Good Friday 1014 a desperate battle was fought between the Danes and the Irish The Danes were completely routed but Brian Boru while giving hanks in his tent after the battle was slain by several of the retreating Norsemen After the death of Brian Born who had united the tribes or clans war again broke out among the various chiefs italachy Brians ancient enemy occu pled the throne for a short time and then for a century and a half and until the English invasion Ireland was like a ship without a captain each chief ruled his own clan but no man ruled Ireland Did my time permit I would travel with you through the various stages of Ire lands history from the AngloSaxon conquest down through the various stages of persecutions warfare and rebellions the wars of Cromwell the up rising of 41 and the rebellion of 98 Possessed I the power of language and had the necessary time I would picture- to you the deplorable condition of Ire land under the cruel eviction laws and her suffering under military domination but as a discussion of Ireland is not com plete without reference to the achievements of her illustrious Sons and as it is my wish to touch briefly upon the promi teut part men of Irish blood have taken in the worlds affairs I must leave unsaid many things that I would wish to say A number of our race possess within themselves that which makes them prominent wherever they go in whatsoever avocation or calling of life their lot may be cast In literature in art in war and in statesmanship the Irish have made their influence felt Glancing through the pages of history where will be found the names of more courageous and noble patriots than Wolfe Tong and Robert 3mmet Whose names shine with more brilliancy in the field of statesmanship than those of John Curran Henry Grattan Edmund Burke Daniel OConnell and Parnell Who wIlt not concede prominence in the world of literature to Dean Swift Oliver Goldsmith Sheridan and Toni Moore In England whose names are brighter on the

of the earth is reflected the glory and achievements of a gallant race I have endeavored to im press upon you how the Irish though slandered and oppressed at home by a hostile Government though

etIrlsh Pcopljs s The Art Section pBo One stiiigLIg1 The Kentucky Irish Americans Great Prize Offer to Its Readers FREE TRIPS FOR FOUR PERSONS While the St Louis Worlds Fair whichopens now in a few weeks will have an attraction for every one it ought to have a particular interest for the Irish people The manufacturers of Ireland have arranged to make the largest exhibit on record of Irish products The actual ity of her industrial revival will be made manifest at this fair There are some things that Ireland can produce so much better and so much cheaper than the United States that it will pay the Irish manufacturer to place them in the American market For in stance there is Irish linen and Belleak pottery Most of the socalled Irish linen now sold in this country is made in Belgium and German and a great deal of the Belleak pottery sold as such in the United States is counterfeit It is to pnta stop to these practices that the Irish man ufacturers have decided to place large exhibits at the St Louis Exposition Beside these two articles there will be a general exhibit in the Irish section showing the natnral resources of the country By this means it is expected that American capital will be attracted to the coun tryIt is perhaps a little early to speak in detail of the probable contents of this Irish section though a general ides may be given of its scope To begin with there will be as at Cork the year before last a very complete exhibit of the cot tage industries of Ireland the raw material the process of manufacture and the manufactured product will be shown and the workers in all existing industries will be seen at work in the model cottages In the case of the larger industries the process of manufacture will also be ex hibited wherever possible and several looms and other appliances are already on their way to St Louis It may be mentioned that the Congested Districts Board as well as the Department of Agriculture is cooperating heartily with the promoters of the Irish section and a display of the products of the congested districts including the beautiful carpets manufactured in Donegal is being ar ranged under its supervision The art section will be another interesting feature of the exhibit from Ireland Mr Strickland ofhei National Gallery of Ireland will have charge of this sec tion A fine collection of old views of Ireland as well as portraits will be exhibited The SL Louis Exposition will eclipse all previous fairs in magnitude Kentuckians will be interested M the State will have a grand exhibit The Kentucky building is ow of tins filHllton the ground awl tIN exhibits are the best- ever before arranged Everybody will D i n want to visit the St Louis Exposition and it will be well worth a trip It will be an education and an inspiration for all who see it It is not likely that an exposition of this magnitude will ever be attemptedagain in this country The Kentucky Irish Americans great prize offer free trips for

Jut N I I I+H 1 I I H 11 I 1 IRISH IN LOCAL POLITICS The editor of the Catholic Citi zen of Milwaukee has a leading editorial in a recent issue on ward politics It reads more like an editorial from an A P A organ than the writing of an Irish Catho lie The editorial holds up the Irish to scorn and ridicule blaming them by implication for the corruption existing in ward politics We do not know how it is in Milwaukee but in Louisville Irishmen who lead in ward politics do not hang around saloons waiting for drinks while they discuss the ethics of local politics Irishmen have taken a leading part in the politics of most Ameri can cities As a rule they have shown themselves to be capable honest and faithful to to the trusts imposed upon them The Irish andvoterIis not influenced by a drink oft whisky as is intimated by the Mi t waukee editor Ward politics would be benefitted perhaps if all good citizens would take more interest in municipal r affairs Those who think them selves too good to go out and bus tle for good men are to blame when bad men get in No good is accom pushed by sitting around and grumbling and it is unjust to the IrishAmerican voter to blame him for the dishonesty existing in ward politics After all there is less corruption going on in American cities than there was twenty years ago and Irishmen have helped to bring this about i GROWING APART A good man said to

for old Kentucky To a representative of the Kentucky Irish American he had this to say about his pleasure trip With a tropical sun beaming down upon the dark blue gulf slowly approach ing the gap the waters seem to have rent in the corals along the coast of Cuba with the ruins of Santa Clara on the right and the picturesque lighthouse of MoroCastle with the port of Cavana as a background on the left no scene can be more impressive and lasting to the scrutinous eye of natures art and the preperation of defense in ancient warfare than one cast on both sides a vessel enter ing the harbor of Havana Very few vessels land directly at the docks hence they gradually drift into port until a husky voice cries out Let go when instantly a massive iron piece is thrust with a splash into the waterand you are anchored safely in Cuban jurisdiction On the south and east of the harbor lies the City of Havana No sooner have you scanned the beauty of the southern clime than your attention is at once attracted by a huge mass of decaying iron To the heart that beats for its loved ones and the mind that prays for its dead the lips quiver an Ave Maria for the sixty or more lost ones who are pinioned in their watery graves in this twisted and sunken warrior that was once the admired Maine The people of Cuba are typical of the brunette type The senorita robed in her beautyat first sight usually wins the somertime is spent among the natives a similarity appears which soon becomes monotonous and only then do you ap preciate the varied shades and manners of your Kentucky belles The efforts on the part of the United States speak most wonderfully in the improvements that have taken place in this metropolis Hardly can you turn about unless confronted by the works of American industry The harbor is cleansed the avenues and streets bordering thereon r paved and concrete walks through the parks are conclusively con vincing as to the sanitary and hygienic laws that have been carried out in this reconstructionIt to meet Alexis E Frye exSuperintendent of Schools of Cuba It was through the courtesies and many kindnesses of this congenial gentle man and scholar we visited numerous places of interest that would otherwise have been overlooked We take this opportunity of publicly thanking him for the interest he manifested Looking out into the gulf in the center of a beautiful grass plat with the jailor commodious penitentiary on the south and the spot of beauty the Prado on the west stands a small portion of ruined wall which bears out the memory of one of the most pathetic facts In 1871 it was announced that the tomb of a person of note had been molested At the time considerable excitement prevailed and a vigorous search was instigated to ferret out the guilty party Finally the con census of opinion was that none other than medical students could be guilty of such a fiendish deed Accordingly they the students were compelled to cast lots as to whom should pay the penalty which was death As innocent of this crime as their Redeemer eight youthful lads were taken from their studies placed against this portion of this wall and in the face of open barrels were shot to death Hardly had their innocent forms cooled when from distant Spain the brother of the deceased appeared in Cuba the tombwas invaded onlyto find that the sepulcher had never been molested and that the worthy dead lay silently there in that sleep which knows no end All Spain remorsed at the hasty action but the deedwas done and all that re mains to speak of the past is this portion of wall with a slab fixed thereon with the inscription of eight names and in the cemetery are found eight mounds in the center of which is erect ed a gorgeous monument And now while speaking of the home of the dead it bids fair to speak of the con trast in their and our method of paying the last rites of respect to our deceased No women attend funerals no weeping and walling at the tomb for theyare tombs a grave costing 260 and affords a resting place for three They are of brick masonry eight feet deep about the same length and two and a half feedwide with a marble slab to close

I walked up the snowcovered stone steps of St Agnes convent my heart was beating quickly with a pleasure that I did not experience every day I paused on the top step but one and collected my thoughts I was really going to meet Anna Glenuon the Anna I knew and loved in the dear old days when she and I were poor working girls Now I was Mrs Lambert Graham a rich matron with a halfdozen plus two children and a whitehaired husband I might add that my once ttrawcolored hair was turned a whitish yellow Anna was Sister Madeline in the order of the Im maculate Heart There is a good deal of pleasure in an ticipation So I stood for several minutes on the steps with my back to the door and glanced at the street at the snow that had been shoveled in dirtylooking heaps along the pavement at the soft flakes that were coming down at the woman over there wearing that sadly worn sealskin coat with the fur gone from the elbows and a hat that was not a Parisian dream I soon found that my joy in anticipating the meeting with Sister Madeline was not sufficient to make me oblivious of the cold and my toes were beginning to warn me that they were nearer to the snow then my heart was My nose despite my thick veil was quite red and cold My ears were tingling so that I felt Jack Frost and all hrs helpmates were nipping at themI accordingly rang the convent bell The door was opened by a little old Sitter with a dovelike countenance I asked for Sister Madeline She and Mother are goneout down town somewhere leading me into a hall and they will not return till 10 oclock I looked at my watch Just 9 a m I will wait for Sister I said I have come some distance to see her1 Oh are you Mrs Graham the lady from Harrisburs I nodding she said Sister has told me much of you and of how kind you are to her She is quite anxious to see you Had she known you were coming to see her she would not now be out I was not aware myself what day I could come I answered so I didnt like to make a promise which I might not be able to keep Promises indeed are hard to keep oc casionally I dont like to make them myself But I must leave you now I shall send another Sister Sister Petron ills to you She is doing some needle work and she will keep you company until Sister Madeline returns She led me into the drawing room then bowed and withdrew Sister Petronilla was a woman of perhaps thirty But I never can telf a Sis ters age I think as a class they hold their years well Of course they are not handicapped as we their less fortunate sisters are by having hair which can turn gray If Sister Petronilla had said she was twenty I would have believed her If she had claimed to be forty I would not have doubted that she was leaving out all question of a Sisters ver acity Yes I am glad to meet Mrs Gra ham she said in a sweet voice after she had introduced herself Sister Madeline often speaks of the days when you and she were seamstresses She sometimes tells how she sat up nights on nights to get money for her entrance into the convent and how generously you assisted her It was hard work she says to gather together the necessary funds but now looking back she claims she is the better for having struggled so I looked at Sister Petronillaa work It was done with colored silk threads So fine that I feel Arachne herself could not have spun a finer It represented an overturned basket of roses It was BO deftly executed that I almost instinct ively leaned forward to pick up one of the fallen flowers I noticed that Sister Petronilla sewed with her left hand her right being concealed under her work Sister I said yopr needle is better than the paint brush of many an artist Your rosfrs are as beautiful as those I have in my hothouse at home She laughed a little at my compliment Yet I do not care very much for needlework she said I think I acquire more merit in doing this than any other of active duties I BO dislike the needle Then I turned the subject to religious vocation and We talked for some time on itThe religious vocation is a question we sisters do not speak about to all vis itors Mrs Graham to WhY noUIt Because every one can rot under ttudltAs a rule we allorvorr visitors to broach their subjects awl then we myelhavetdanylf n L ing who care to hold converse on such a subjectAs to religious vocation sister I said with a smile you bear in mind I suppose that we must not throw pearls before swine That sounds harsh somehow doesnt it Mrs Graham- I thought it did Have you sister ever known any young lady that lost het religious voca tionNobut I know one that came very near losing hers Since we have almost an hour together I have half a mind to tell you about her Oh do Sister I pleaded Well and the bright little needle with its long shining glossy hair flew faster than ever well call this lady Eula DeLong a pretty name dont you think so Eula was beautiful and had many accomplishments among which music held the highest place She was an excellent piano player and had gradu ated from a firstclass academy of music It was a Catholic institution Eula was only seventeen then She felt that God wanted her in the convent and she knew that her parents being wealthy did not need her They were a saintly couple and though Eula was their only child and the sunshine of their old age she was aware that they would ask nothing better than to see her take the vows of n religious No one knew of Eulas budding vocation save her confessor She kept the thought of her religious calling pondering it in her heart My parents shall be informed of it in good time said Eula to herself Eula however was vain and praise always turned her shallow little head Shortly after her return from school she playedat an entertainment Her music created a furore Her touch was divine a romantic newspaper reporter wrote The following evening the newspaper said that Eula DeLongln the musical line was a gem that would not be hidden in the dark unfathomed ocean of obscur ity Of course it was n country town that Eula lived in and it was a country paper that contained the lengthy article on her skill Yet Eula was a prodigy Her silly brain was put at odds with her heart by this flattery She played in public again soon after and again she was a success Eula was much sought after both by Catholics and Protestants She playedin churches in private dwellings at concertsevery where in short Soon her attention was almost entirely taken up by music She was wont to draw before her minds eye a bright picture of her future She would become a professional player and should travel God by degrees was fad ing from her thoughts The fancied applause of thousands drowned the ring ing of the convent bell she used to have in her ears The towering opera shut out from her sight the ivymantled walls of the convent A beautiful woman in Eulas imagination took the place of the softfeatured nun that of old hack been there In short she had abandoned her vocation She had sold her birthright for a mess of pottage One evening she was standing beside an open window of her home and looking abstractedly out at the soft undulating lawn God had come back to her thoughts She knew that lIe wanted her in the convent but she wanted to be before the public eye He seemed to plead with her but she refused to hearken He threatened punishment and she turned cold with fear How powerful God isl He had given her musical talent She was aware that she ought to use it for His greater honor and glory There was a mighty struggle going on in Eulas hearts as she raised her uneasy eyes to look at the setting sun She drew a chair to the window and laid her small white hand on the sill A large Japanese vase was placed under the sash to keep it up and hulas elbow struck that Down came the win dow with a crashr Eula remembered only a stinging pain that ran through her fingers her band her armand that was all for she had fainted The second and third fingers of her right hand were so badly crushed that they had to be amputated I need not put hulas grief and remorse of conscience in words Did Eula go to the convent I askedYesbut that was a year after When about to make her final vows she thought of our dear Saviors words If thy right hand scandalize thee cntitofL Isnt God Mrs Graham a real father to ns Stitch stitch A d m y I ask is she still living Stitch Yeses atltcldatJtchlyes- she Is living and is very happy in the convent She is a teacher not of music She loves music psadonatelyand it is the greatest cross of her life thet she can not play Yet she feels that Gods way of dealing with her WM gentle What might not hays become of her had not He reached forth Bin fatherly hand and 0- a 0 snatched her from the edge of the preci pice whither her steps wer leading her She never hears a note of music Mrs Graham but a tear steals into her eyes It brings back vividly her sin and what she has lost We heard the hall door open and a sound of womens voices Sister Petra aroseWhy Sister Madeline has returned early she said Shell be with you in a moment Mrs Graham I shall see you again I hope before you bid our convent adieuAs I bowed assent she turned to leave Her work slipped from her hand to the floor She stooped to pick it up and I noticed that the second and third fingers of her right hand were gone MATT WINN Succeeds Edward Tierney as Member of Board of

Meehan State Secre I WILLIAM T MEEHAN tary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians will learn with sincere regret of his decision to leave Kentucky Last Mon day night he left for Paris Missouri where he was made a flattering offer to engage in the tobacco business with his brotherinlaw who has large interests also in Hannibal For years past Mr Meehan has been employed by Edward Klauber the Fourth street art dealer and there was few Irish Catholics better known or more highly respected in this city The Ancient Order of Hibernians will certainly miss his services as he was a hard worker and a most reliable officer It is more than likely that Joseph P McGinn of Division 4 will be elected to fill the vacancy in the State Bond Mr Mee han was a member of the Knights of Columbus and also of the Catholic Knights of America having filled every important office in the gift of St Johns branch But his greatest interest perhaps was in the work of the St Vincent de Paul Societyof St Mary Magdalens parish There was no call from those in distress to which he would not cheerfully respond and many poor persons will miss the benefits received through his effortsWill Meehan is a genial and honorable gentleman and while regretting his removal from our midst with his hosts of friends we wish him all possible suc cess and commend him to the people of Paris and thg State of Missouri FJRST COMMUNION
